I can understand the continued support of Trump from some voters, what does a man do when he was constantly warned about a wayward and nasty girl but married her anyways? only to find out that they were right. Suffer with it and pray that she will get her act together.

How disgusting is that our president talks more highly of Putin than our FBI?

https://www.politico.com/story/2017/12/07/christopher-wray-fbi-oversight-hearing-285956?lo=ap_d1

FBI Director Christopher Wray on Thursday rejected President Donald Trump’s claim that the law enforcement agency’s reputation is “in tatters.”

“There is no shortage of opinions out there,” Wray said, without mentioning the president, during a House Judiciary Committee hearing after he was asked about Trump’s statement. “The FBI that I see is people, decent people, committed to the highest principles of dignity and professionalism and respect.”

Re: Trump Impeachment - 12/07/17 03:29 PM



Wray's testimony comes after is was revealed top FBI investigator Peter Strzok, who worked for Special Counsel Robert Mueller before being reassigned, texted anti-Trump, pro-Hillary messages to his alleged mistress. Strzok worked on the Clinton email investigation, changed the language in former FBI Director James Comey's exoneration statement of Hillary Clinton to avoid criminality and interviewed former White House National Security Advisor Mike Flynn, who just pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI last week.

The Inspector General has launched an investigation into the situation to verify whether political bias impacted the FBI's criminal investigation into Clinton and the ultimate decision not to refer her for prosecution.

Having a President that will drain the swamp is wonderful.

We do know for a certain who's reputation is in tatters but he hypocritically blame his problems on others.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/0/donald-trump-latest-approval-rating-impeachment-odds/

by Patrick Scott and Ashley Kirk 6 December 2017 • 9:27am

As it stands impeachment is still unlikely because it would require a majority in the House of Representatives to go to trial and a two-thirds majority in the Senate to make it happen.

Both the House and the Senate are currently under Republican control, meaning that Trump's party would have to abandon him for him to be kicked out of office.

However, the bookmakers aren't ruling out impeachment with the latest odds from Coral showing that there is a 40 per cent chance Trump will fail to make it to the end of his first term in office.

Their latest odds are as follows:

Impeachment or resignation before 2020: 6/4 (40 per cent chance)
To serve full first term: 4/6 (60 per cent chance)

Not for me seeing that I neither voted for Trump or Hillary, Bernie was my man. As of today, we get to see in total revelation, why trump lost by 3 million votes and had to steal the electoral which he is more than willing to let Mueller investigate. You need not debate it son, everyday reports reality contrary to your wishful thinking. but but but. wink

Re: Trump Impeachment - 12/15/17 03:50 AM

From Breitbart.

http://www.breitbart.com/video/2017/12/1...like-trump-did/

On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” former Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) argued that former President Bill Clinton was impeached “or a lot less than what it looks like Trump did in his life” and the accusations against President Trump would be cause for impeachment.

Anchor Chris Hayes asked Boxer, “What do you think of this idea that — this growing call to investigate, in some formal way, to use Congressional oversight to investigate the allegations made against the president of the United States?”

She answered, “Well, I gave it a lot of thought and I think it makes sense for the House to do it. Because, you know, the House impeached Bill Clinton for a lot less than what it looks like Trump did in his life, since he admitted it, basically. Woman after woman after woman after woman, and they’re coming forward now. So, you know, it would be a cause for impeachment, so I think it does make sense for them to start some hearings on this subject.”

Hayes then inquired if behavior a president engaged in before taking office would be impeachable.

Boxer responded, “Well, I think because he’s lying about it now, and because he said it on the campaign trail. He said, ‘This is terrible. I’m going to sue all these women.’ So, you could argue that he got elected on false pretense, you know, that he lied about it. So, yeah, I think it’s a whole different standard now. You know, we in government should have a higher standard, and there’s no question in my mind, it’s turned.”

Trump colludes with Russia, he pushed for a Conservative laden FCC to control your rights to the internet,systemically takes your health care away, gives corporate tax breaks at the people's expense, calls the media fake news thus attempts to control what they report, threatens to fire the entity that investigates his wrong doing.
What's ironic, the Conservative claimed that Obama attempted to control us only to turn around and allow a White racist dictator to blatantly screw us with their blessings . Oligarchy anyone?

Need Obama be any clearer?

From the article I posted it states "364 Republicans & Democrats vote AGAINST Rep. Al Green's motion to impeach Trump. 58 Democrats voted to move ahead." Here is your clue: Notice the AND between Republicans and Democrats? Even the Democrats couldn't get a party line vote.

http://www.newsweek.com/tom-steyer-impea...lionaire-703337

By Celeste Katz On 11/7/17

Tom Steyer doesn't know what's going on in Donald Trump's head—and he's not going to try to guess.

"I'll leave it to God to figure out," he said.

Steyer has plenty enough on his plate without adding armchair psychologist duties: The San Francisco progressive is not only waging an eight-figure campaign to get fellow billionaire Trump impeached; he's also playing the long game by trying to mobilize an army of progressive millennials to vote in the 2018 midterms.

"The president is doing some awful things, [and] that's the point we're trying to make in those TV ads: 'Let's come together and stand up against somebody who's doing awful things,'" Steyer told Newsweek in a freewheeling Monday phone interview. "But [I'm] as disturbed by the good things that he's not doing as by the awful things that he is doing."

It's a dramatic moment in tempestuous times: America is a year out from Trump's upset victory and a year away from the midterms that could serve as a referendum on him and the Republican Party.

At this midway point, Democratic mega-donor Steyer is fighting a political war on two fronts.

He's adding to the 1.7 million signatures already on his "Need to Impeach" petition with his straight-to-camera ad, in which he lambastes Trump as a "dangerous president" who's "brought us to the brink of nuclear war." Simultaneously, Steyer's "NextGen Rising" campaign is targeting millennials in a major get out the vote operation in the battleground states of Virginia, California, Florida, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Launched in June and now ramping up with a six-figure ad buy on the web as well as Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat, Steyer's program seeks to mobilize young people with a focus on five sweeping areas: Immigration, health care, climate, civil rights and the economy.

His goal: To register and turn out at least 500,000 progressive young voters for the midterms.

Steyer, an investor turned activist who's worth $1.6 billion according to Forbes, is running the voter drive under the umbrella of his political operation, NextGen America. Separately, he's making headlines not only for where his impeachment ad is on the air in heavy rotation, but for where it isn't: Fox News Channel pulled the spot shortly after Trump slammed Steyer on Twitter as "wacky & totally unhinged."

The father of four, who won't get specific about his own potential political future, doesn't seem convinced he's the wacky one here.

"I mean, good grief! What's the state of the union? The country is barreling along, [but] the government is in deep dysfunction," Steyer told Newsweek. "I think that because the economy is still chugging along and because the stock market is still chugging along and because rates are low, people kind of feel like, 'Well, how bad is it really?'"

Ok, so how bad is it really, then? He rattles off a list like he's reciting the alphabet.

“They tried to get rid of Obamacare. They're about to try and push through corporate tax cuts at the expense of middle-class Americans. They are trying to dismantle every environmental protection that we have. They pulled out of the Paris Treaty. They pulled us out of TPP," said Steyer, who argues that the U.S. is in the throes of a spiritual "crisis" and that Trump is "lowering the tone" of the national debate.

For good measure, “We're in two nuclear confrontations, both of which we created. We're watching hundreds of billions of dollars of climate-related disasters at the same time that the government denies there's any climate issue and [is] refusing to use the words ‘climate change,’” he said.

A White House spokesperson declined comment on Steyer, but Trump's October tweet makes it pretty clear where he stands.

Michael Ahrens, a spokesman for the Republican National Committee, told Newsweek via email, “If Democrats want to appease the far left and their liberal mega-donors by supporting a baseless radical effort that the vast majority of Americans disagree with, then have at it. Republicans will continue to focus on issues voters actually care about, like growing our economy and cutting taxes for the middle class.”

Steyer is working the angles with his two-pronged strategy. He probably needs to: While dissatisfaction with Trump is incredibly high, according to polls, the odds of a successful impeachment making it through a Republican-dominated Congress are very low.

Motivating young, progressive voters to flex their political muscle in races for governor, Congress and local offices could be an ideological backstop. It's also tricky: In 2016, Gen X-ers and Baby Boomers still cast more votes than millennials, according to the Pew Research Center, even though the millennial generation is larger in sheer numbers. And while millennials do tend to lean left, they are strongly inclined to identify as independents.

NextGen Rising has already spent more than $10 million to mobilize young voters in 2017, including at Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and will spend "substantially more" in the coming year, though organizers haven't settled on a number.

The campaign hosted "One Year Out" college campus events on Monday in a countdown to the midterms, and says it's put 60 paid workers on the ground and registered more than 20,000 voters in Virginia, where Democrat Ralph Northam has been leading Trump-backed Republican Ed Gillespie in the race for governor.

Steyer boils his 30,000-foot view of the state of politics down to three things: A belief that the U.S. "won't be the most successful country the world by having the biggest bombs or by having the most oil," but by making sure its people prosper; a need for major investment in sustainable energy and infrastructure; and "a need to recommit to accepting each other's full humanity and protecting the rights and dignity of Americans," regardless of race, gender or sexual orientation.

Asked if he had anything to say directly to Trump, Steyer first declined.

Then he reconsidered.

"The only thing I can say to the president is, 'Please sign our petition.'"

Trumps emotional stability is like what a 12 year old?

Trump predicts exoneration in Russia investigation as allies fear a 'meltdown'

By Jeremy Diamond, Sara Murray and Manu Raju, CNN

President Donald Trump is privately striking a less agitated tone on the Russia investigation, sources say, even insisting he'll soon be cleared in writing. But his new approach has some allies worried he's not taking the threat of the probe seriously enough.
Trump has spent much of his first year in office so enraged by the federal investigation into Russian meddling in last year's election that lawmakers who work with him tried to avoid the issue entirely and his friends worried that Trump might rashly fire the special counsel. But in recent weeks, Trump has privately seemed less frustrated about the investigation, according to multiple sources who have spoken with the President.

There's no indication from special counsel Robert Mueller or his team that the probe is in its final stages. A tipping point in the showdown could come as soon as this week when Trump's private lawyers and Mueller meet, sources familiar with the matter told CNN. Trump's team is hoping to get a clearer sense of Mueller's next steps in the investigation, an assessment that could either pacify Trump or inflame him.

Until those next signs emerge, Trump is boasting to friends and advisers that he expects Mueller to clear him of wrongdoing in the coming weeks, according to sources familiar with the conversations. The President seems so convinced of his impending exoneration that he is telling associates Mueller will soon write a letter clearing him that Trump can brandish to Washington and the world in a bid to finally emerge from the cloud of suspicion that has loomed over the first chapter of his presidency, the sources said.

This account of how Trump and his senior staffers are privately grappling with the Russia investigation is based on interviews over the past week with nearly three dozen White House officials, lawmakers, outside advisers, friends of the President and sources familiar with the Mueller probe. It depicts a president genuinely convinced of his innocence and advisers preparing for him to explode early next year if the probe doesn't end as neatly as Trump expects.
In private conversations, Trump still speaks dismissively of the Russia investigation, referring to it as "bulls---" and proclaiming "I don't know any Russians!" multiple sources told CNN.

But those outbursts are measured against Trump's belief that the investigation will soon wrap up favorably. That rosy picture has buoyed Trump's spirits in recent weeks, leaving him seemingly less frustrated and more even-keeled about the investigation even as Mueller's team landed a guilty plea and the cooperation of one of the President's former top advisers, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.
"The President's mantra is 'All this Russia stuff, it's all going to wrap up soon.' He repeats it as fact," said one source who speaks to Trump. "Part of me is like -- 'Are you serious? You believe this?'"

The President, speaking to reporters at the White House Sunday evening, insisted he wasn't considering firing Mueller. But the pressure on Mueller from Trump's allies is growing. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin told CNN's Jake Tapper Sunday on "State of the Union" that "we've got to get past this investigation."
"It's a giant distraction," he said. "Nobody has said that, in any way, this impacted the outcome of the election."
Meanwhile, lawyers representing the Trump presidential transition wrote to members of Congress accusing Mueller of obtaining unauthorized access to tens of thousands of transition emails, including what they claim to be documents protected by attorney-client privilege. Mueller's spokesman responded that, "When we have obtained emails in the course of our ongoing investigation, we have secured either the account owner's consent or appropriate criminal process."
Worrying about the deadline
Trump's legal team has told the President he will likely be cleared of wrongdoing in the coming months, according to a senior White House official and sources who have spoken with Trump. That optimism has left some of the President's friends and advisers worried the deadline could come and go, leaving Trump frustrated and more prone to rash behavior than ever before, including potentially firing Mueller. A number of Trump's allies have warned him that any attempt to fire Mueller could be a fatal blow to his presidency.
Three sources familiar with the President's recent conversations about the investigation said Trump has become convinced that he will receive a letter of exoneration, which would be unusual. One source worried Trump would have a "meltdown" if that doesn't happen.
"He'll try and fire Mueller and then be impeached," this person predicted.

White House special counsel Ty Cobb and Trump's personal lawyer, John Dowd, are trying to prevent Trump from lashing out over the investigation, said a source who speaks with the President. "What they are trying to do is manage Trump. That's what everyone tries to do."
But a longtime friend of the President's said he believes Trump's attorneys have "lulled him into a false sense of security" -- which could be a dangerous game.
"I've known him long enough to know that disappointing him is a problem and they've built up a level of expectations for him that are unrealistic," the Trump friend said.
The assessment by the President's lawyers cuts against the grain of legal experts who believe the Mueller investigation is only ramping up, with Flynn's guilty plea and his agreement to cooperate with investigators signaling that Mueller is chasing even bigger fish. Lawyers for others involved in the investigation are also skeptical that Mueller is close to wrapping up his work.
Cobb insists the investigation is winding down and has said he expects the part of the probe that is scrutinizing the President and the White House will come to a close early next year.
"The special counsel has had the White House documents for some time now and has concluded all requested White House interviews. The President is confident based on the lack of evidence of any wrongdoing that he'll be treated appropriately by the special counsel and ideally in the near future," Cobb told CNN Sunday, though he acknowledged Mueller could request additional interviews with White House staff.
Cobb declined to speculate on how the President would be publicly exonerated. He said he and the President had never discussed a letter of exoneration and said he had "no idea" where Trump got the idea.
Privately, Cobb has sought to assuage Trump and White House staffers by touting his connections to Mueller and members of his team, whom he has known in Washington for years, sources familiar with the matter said. He also cites his familiarity with the thousands of documents the White House has provided to Mueller's investigators, the sources said.
But Cobb's timeline predicting the end of Mueller's focus on the White House has repeatedly shifted. First, he said the investigation would end by Thanksgiving. Then, he said it would wrap up by the end of the year. Now, he's predicting early next year.


Mark Corallo, a former spokesman for the President's legal team, said he doubts Mueller would deliver a letter exonerating Trump before he has fully wrapped up his investigation. But he said pressure is mounting for Mueller to conclude his investigation as a result of reports that several members of his investigative team (who have since been taken off the investigation) have privately expressed anti-Trump sentiments.
"If you're Mueller and you want to have any shred of credibility, you have to find a way" to bring the investigation to a close, Corallo said. "If you reach the conclusion that the President of the United States doesn't have anything to do with this...he's going to have to find some way to make that public. We're at that point now."

One senior White House official insisted that even if Cobb's timeline doesn't pan out, he has provided the necessary reassurance of a "light at the end of the tunnel" in a White House where the investigation sometimes seems to loom endlessly and where the President's mood has been affected by its topsy-turvy nature.
"If it's not totally on that timeline, do I think there's going to be a problem? No. I think that people are realistic that things change, stuff happens," the senior White House official said. "You cross that bridge when you get to it."
'Morale-crushing' investigation
While Cobb's words have reassured some White House officials who have become wrapped up in the investigation, many staffers continue to work under the assumption that the probe is intensifying, five sources close to the White House said.
The Russia investigation has become the backdrop for day-to-day life at the White House.
Officials insist it doesn't disrupt their work days, although the latest Russia developments and the President's own Twitter musings often send some in the communications shop scrambling to respond. But sources acknowledged the constant clamor of the investigation -- and wall-to-wall media coverage -- has weighed on the mood in the West Wing.
"The commotion around the investigation is morale-crushing to everybody," said one source familiar with the situation.
Senior staffers have borne the brunt of the anxiety. Many have hired lawyers and worked with them at length to prepare for their interviews with the special counsel's team.
Hope Hicks, the White House communications director and one of Trump's closest aides, missed several days of work in order to meet with her lawyer to prepare for her interview, two sources said.

"I feel for these White House staffers that are caught up in these interviews because it's nerve-wracking," said Scott Jennings, who found himself embroiled in a special counsel investigation during his tenure as deputy director of political affairs under President George W. Bush. "The thing that nobody really knows, having really lived through one of these, is just how much of a toll this can take on staff in terms of stress, anxiety, personal legal bills."
For now at least, White House staffers are paying their legal fees out of their own pockets, a significant expense for government employees.
One source who has spoken with the President said he seems to be unaware of the anxiety among staffers. "Everybody needs a pat on the back, some reassurances that the President is loyal to them, and he just doesn't do that well," the source said.
As the investigation creeps toward 2018, White House officials and former campaign aides remain adamant that there was no coordination or collusion between Trump's presidential campaign and Russian officials.
Some White House staffers have taken to dismissing the investigation as "fake news" and using it as grist for gallows humor.
"You getting nervous?" staffers would quip to former Trump campaign hands working in the White House.
Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, said the special counsel's investigation hasn't been a distraction.
"We have not missed a step, struggled to get our work done or been distracted," she said in a statement to CNN. "We have been focused on growing the economy, passing massive tax cuts, defeating ISIS, cutting regulations at a record pace and creating millions of jobs."

Trump's shift from angry to calm
While Trump may have temporarily adopted a more serene view of the special counsel's investigation, he remains irritated by the ongoing Russia investigations playing out on Capitol Hill. He has pressed some lawmakers for details about the status of the congressional probes.

Trump comments on FBI, Putin and Michael Flynn 04:52
"When you look at the committees, whether it's the Senate or the House, everybody -- my worst enemies, they walk out, they say, 'There is no collusion but we'll continue to look.' They're spending millions and millions of dollars. There's absolutely no collusion. I didn't make a phone call to Russia. I have nothing to do with Russia. Everybody knows it," Trump told reporters gathered on the South Lawn of the White House Friday. "We've got to get back to running a country."
Contrary to the President's claims, the congressional committees have not yet determined whether there is evidence the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians. In multiple conversations with Republican senators, Trump expressed frustration about the scope of the investigations, according to two sources familiar with the conversations.
Several members of the House and Senate Intelligence committees, which are conducting Russia investigations, have made a conscious effort to avoid Trump and the White House this year to guard against allegations of impropriety.
Other lawmakers have taken pains to avoid discussing the issue with the President even as they try to work alongside him to advance the GOP's agenda.
In a private phone call with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in August, soon after the collapse of the health care bill in the Senate, Trump let his frustrations fly -- but not about the failure to repeal Obamacare. He railed against McConnell about the ongoing congressional probes, a call that devolved into the President shouting profanities at the majority leader, sources briefed on the call said. The two men have steered clear of discussing the Russia probe since, sources said.
Over several rounds of golf in recent weeks, Sen. Lindsey Graham said he has tried to avoid discussing Russia when he's on the course with Trump.
"We pretty much don't talk about Russia a lot," the South Carolina Republican said. "He sort of knows where I'm at. This investigation is going to go where it goes."
When the topic does come up, Graham said, he gets a familiar refrain from Trump. "He complains about it, says he didn't do anything wrong," Graham said. "I say, 'Alright Mr. President, time will tell.'"
Even as the President devours cable news and vents on Twitter, allies inside and outside the White House said Trump's days aren't consumed by an obsession with the Russia probe.
Perhaps his biggest frustration is that he believes the investigations are hindering his governing prowess. Trump has told one senator repeatedly that the ongoing probes undermine his standing on the world stage and make it harder for him to work with foreign leaders, according to a person with direct knowledge of the calls.
More painful next year?
If the President is concerned about the uproar over Russia drowning out his agenda now, experts said next year could prove even more painful if Republicans lose control of the House or the Senate.
"From an investigatory perspective, the paralysis that can be injected by the opposite party controlling Congress is so significant," said Jennings, drawing on his experience in the Bush administration. "I hope there is an appreciation for the fact that this presidency could come to a complete standstill in less than one year."
While Mueller's probe has focused on criminal wrongdoing, congressional investigators have much wider latitude. Democrats could try to unearth unsavory stories about abuses of power or efforts to shame public officials. And investigations that Republicans have largely led behind closed doors could be thrust into the public view, an outcome that would almost certainly be more damaging to the President's approval ratings.
"The most important difference at this point in the story between the Watergate scandal and 'Hackergate' or 'Russiagate' is that Congress is not holding public hearings," said Tim Naftali, a CNN presidential historian and the former director of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum.
"It was every day, it was public and people watched it," Naftali said of the Watergate scandal. "It was like a soap opera."

A sad and pathetic president when they denigrate everyone from the FBI, Democrats, Republicans and foreign leaders to make a speech in which he is so hypocritical.

Trump predicts exoneration in Russia investigation as allies fear a 'meltdown'

By Jeremy Diamond, Sara Murray and Manu Raju, CNN

President Donald Trump is privately striking a less agitated tone on the Russia investigation, sources say, even insisting he'll soon be cleared in writing. But his new approach has some allies worried he's not taking the threat of the probe seriously enough.
Trump has spent much of his first year in office so enraged by the federal investigation into Russian meddling in last year's election that lawmakers who work with him tried to avoid the issue entirely and his friends worried that Trump might rashly fire the special counsel. But in recent weeks, Trump has privately seemed less frustrated about the investigation, according to multiple sources who have spoken with the President.

There's no indication from special counsel Robert Mueller or his team that the probe is in its final stages. A tipping point in the showdown could come as soon as this week when Trump's private lawyers and Mueller meet, sources familiar with the matter told CNN. Trump's team is hoping to get a clearer sense of Mueller's next steps in the investigation, an assessment that could either pacify Trump or inflame him.

Until those next signs emerge, Trump is boasting to friends and advisers that he expects Mueller to clear him of wrongdoing in the coming weeks, according to sources familiar with the conversations. The President seems so convinced of his impending exoneration that he is telling associates Mueller will soon write a letter clearing him that Trump can brandish to Washington and the world in a bid to finally emerge from the cloud of suspicion that has loomed over the first chapter of his presidency, the sources said.

This account of how Trump and his senior staffers are privately grappling with the Russia investigation is based on interviews over the past week with nearly three dozen White House officials, lawmakers, outside advisers, friends of the President and sources familiar with the Mueller probe. It depicts a president genuinely convinced of his innocence and advisers preparing for him to explode early next year if the probe doesn't end as neatly as Trump expects.
In private conversations, Trump still speaks dismissively of the Russia investigation, referring to it as "bulls---" and proclaiming "I don't know any Russians!" multiple sources told CNN.

But those outbursts are measured against Trump's belief that the investigation will soon wrap up favorably. That rosy picture has buoyed Trump's spirits in recent weeks, leaving him seemingly less frustrated and more even-keeled about the investigation even as Mueller's team landed a guilty plea and the cooperation of one of the President's former top advisers, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.
"The President's mantra is 'All this Russia stuff, it's all going to wrap up soon.' He repeats it as fact," said one source who speaks to Trump. "Part of me is like -- 'Are you serious? You believe this?'"

The President, speaking to reporters at the White House Sunday evening, insisted he wasn't considering firing Mueller. But the pressure on Mueller from Trump's allies is growing. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin told CNN's Jake Tapper Sunday on "State of the Union" that "we've got to get past this investigation."
"It's a giant distraction," he said. "Nobody has said that, in any way, this impacted the outcome of the election."
Meanwhile, lawyers representing the Trump presidential transition wrote to members of Congress accusing Mueller of obtaining unauthorized access to tens of thousands of transition emails, including what they claim to be documents protected by attorney-client privilege. Mueller's spokesman responded that, "When we have obtained emails in the course of our ongoing investigation, we have secured either the account owner's consent or appropriate criminal process."
Worrying about the deadline
Trump's legal team has told the President he will likely be cleared of wrongdoing in the coming months, according to a senior White House official and sources who have spoken with Trump. That optimism has left some of the President's friends and advisers worried the deadline could come and go, leaving Trump frustrated and more prone to rash behavior than ever before, including potentially firing Mueller. A number of Trump's allies have warned him that any attempt to fire Mueller could be a fatal blow to his presidency.
Three sources familiar with the President's recent conversations about the investigation said Trump has become convinced that he will receive a letter of exoneration, which would be unusual. One source worried Trump would have a "meltdown" if that doesn't happen.
"He'll try and fire Mueller and then be impeached," this person predicted.

White House special counsel Ty Cobb and Trump's personal lawyer, John Dowd, are trying to prevent Trump from lashing out over the investigation, said a source who speaks with the President. "What they are trying to do is manage Trump. That's what everyone tries to do."
But a longtime friend of the President's said he believes Trump's attorneys have "lulled him into a false sense of security" -- which could be a dangerous game.
"I've known him long enough to know that disappointing him is a problem and they've built up a level of expectations for him that are unrealistic," the Trump friend said.
The assessment by the President's lawyers cuts against the grain of legal experts who believe the Mueller investigation is only ramping up, with Flynn's guilty plea and his agreement to cooperate with investigators signaling that Mueller is chasing even bigger fish. Lawyers for others involved in the investigation are also skeptical that Mueller is close to wrapping up his work.
Cobb insists the investigation is winding down and has said he expects the part of the probe that is scrutinizing the President and the White House will come to a close early next year.
"The special counsel has had the White House documents for some time now and has concluded all requested White House interviews. The President is confident based on the lack of evidence of any wrongdoing that he'll be treated appropriately by the special counsel and ideally in the near future," Cobb told CNN Sunday, though he acknowledged Mueller could request additional interviews with White House staff.
Cobb declined to speculate on how the President would be publicly exonerated. He said he and the President had never discussed a letter of exoneration and said he had "no idea" where Trump got the idea.
Privately, Cobb has sought to assuage Trump and White House staffers by touting his connections to Mueller and members of his team, whom he has known in Washington for years, sources familiar with the matter said. He also cites his familiarity with the thousands of documents the White House has provided to Mueller's investigators, the sources said.
But Cobb's timeline predicting the end of Mueller's focus on the White House has repeatedly shifted. First, he said the investigation would end by Thanksgiving. Then, he said it would wrap up by the end of the year. Now, he's predicting early next year.


Mark Corallo, a former spokesman for the President's legal team, said he doubts Mueller would deliver a letter exonerating Trump before he has fully wrapped up his investigation. But he said pressure is mounting for Mueller to conclude his investigation as a result of reports that several members of his investigative team (who have since been taken off the investigation) have privately expressed anti-Trump sentiments.
"If you're Mueller and you want to have any shred of credibility, you have to find a way" to bring the investigation to a close, Corallo said. "If you reach the conclusion that the President of the United States doesn't have anything to do with this...he's going to have to find some way to make that public. We're at that point now."

One senior White House official insisted that even if Cobb's timeline doesn't pan out, he has provided the necessary reassurance of a "light at the end of the tunnel" in a White House where the investigation sometimes seems to loom endlessly and where the President's mood has been affected by its topsy-turvy nature.
"If it's not totally on that timeline, do I think there's going to be a problem? No. I think that people are realistic that things change, stuff happens," the senior White House official said. "You cross that bridge when you get to it."
'Morale-crushing' investigation
While Cobb's words have reassured some White House officials who have become wrapped up in the investigation, many staffers continue to work under the assumption that the probe is intensifying, five sources close to the White House said.
The Russia investigation has become the backdrop for day-to-day life at the White House.
Officials insist it doesn't disrupt their work days, although the latest Russia developments and the President's own Twitter musings often send some in the communications shop scrambling to respond. But sources acknowledged the constant clamor of the investigation -- and wall-to-wall media coverage -- has weighed on the mood in the West Wing.
"The commotion around the investigation is morale-crushing to everybody," said one source familiar with the situation.
Senior staffers have borne the brunt of the anxiety. Many have hired lawyers and worked with them at length to prepare for their interviews with the special counsel's team.
Hope Hicks, the White House communications director and one of Trump's closest aides, missed several days of work in order to meet with her lawyer to prepare for her interview, two sources said.

"I feel for these White House staffers that are caught up in these interviews because it's nerve-wracking," said Scott Jennings, who found himself embroiled in a special counsel investigation during his tenure as deputy director of political affairs under President George W. Bush. "The thing that nobody really knows, having really lived through one of these, is just how much of a toll this can take on staff in terms of stress, anxiety, personal legal bills."
For now at least, White House staffers are paying their legal fees out of their own pockets, a significant expense for government employees.
One source who has spoken with the President said he seems to be unaware of the anxiety among staffers. "Everybody needs a pat on the back, some reassurances that the President is loyal to them, and he just doesn't do that well," the source said.
As the investigation creeps toward 2018, White House officials and former campaign aides remain adamant that there was no coordination or collusion between Trump's presidential campaign and Russian officials.
Some White House staffers have taken to dismissing the investigation as "fake news" and using it as grist for gallows humor.
"You getting nervous?" staffers would quip to former Trump campaign hands working in the White House.
Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, said the special counsel's investigation hasn't been a distraction.
"We have not missed a step, struggled to get our work done or been distracted," she said in a statement to CNN. "We have been focused on growing the economy, passing massive tax cuts, defeating ISIS, cutting regulations at a record pace and creating millions of jobs."

Trump's shift from angry to calm
While Trump may have temporarily adopted a more serene view of the special counsel's investigation, he remains irritated by the ongoing Russia investigations playing out on Capitol Hill. He has pressed some lawmakers for details about the status of the congressional probes.

Trump comments on FBI, Putin and Michael Flynn 04:52
"When you look at the committees, whether it's the Senate or the House, everybody -- my worst enemies, they walk out, they say, 'There is no collusion but we'll continue to look.' They're spending millions and millions of dollars. There's absolutely no collusion. I didn't make a phone call to Russia. I have nothing to do with Russia. Everybody knows it," Trump told reporters gathered on the South Lawn of the White House Friday. "We've got to get back to running a country."
Contrary to the President's claims, the congressional committees have not yet determined whether there is evidence the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians. In multiple conversations with Republican senators, Trump expressed frustration about the scope of the investigations, according to two sources familiar with the conversations.
Several members of the House and Senate Intelligence committees, which are conducting Russia investigations, have made a conscious effort to avoid Trump and the White House this year to guard against allegations of impropriety.
Other lawmakers have taken pains to avoid discussing the issue with the President even as they try to work alongside him to advance the GOP's agenda.
In a private phone call with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in August, soon after the collapse of the health care bill in the Senate, Trump let his frustrations fly -- but not about the failure to repeal Obamacare.

“There is no shortage of opinions out there,” Wray said, without mentioning the president, during a House Judiciary Committee hearing after he was asked about Trump’s statement. “The FBI that I see is people, decent people, committed to the highest principles of dignity and professionalism and respect.”

Narcissistic personality disorder — one of several types of personality disorders — is a mental condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and a lack of empathy for others. But behind this mask of extreme confidence lies a fragile self-esteem that's vulnerable to the slightest criticism.

A narcissistic personality disorder causes problems in many areas of life, such as relationships, work, school or financial affairs. People with narcissistic personality disorder may be generally unhappy and disappointed when they're not given the special favors or admiration they believe they deserve. They may find their relationships unfulfilling, and others may not enjoy being around them.

News analysis

WASHINGTON — Democrats ended 2016 dejected and despondent after Donald Trump shocked Hillary Clinton — and the world — by a tiny combined margin of 77,744 votes in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin to win the presidency.

A year later, Democrats are ending 2017 as the slight favorites to take back the House in the midterm elections, thanks to a surge of grassroots anti-Trump activism and an explosion of credible Democratic candidates.

For years, I've argued that House Republicans' twin geographic advantages — their dominance in the 2011 round of congressional districting and Democratic voters' tendency to cluster in cities and waste their own votes — meant that to reclaim the majority, Democrats would either need a resettlement program of their own voters or an unpopular GOP president in a midterm year.

The latter has come true. Trump's poor standing — just 41 percent approval in the most recent NBC/WSJ poll — have propelled Democrats to leads in voters' preference for Congress that may be too large for GOP gerrymandering to withstand.

“Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough warned Thursday that 2018 stands to be the “most consequential political year of our lives.”

In an op-ed for the Washington Post, the former Florida congressman reflected on the first year of Donald Trump’s presidency, and denounced Trump for the charges against his former campaign officials and national security adviser, attacks on the press, and the suggestion that there were fine people on “both sides” after white nationalist groups clashed with counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Va.

Scarborough criticized Trump’s foreign policy, saying “others would surely consider the president’s malignant idiocy in foreign affairs to be the most damning legacy of his first year.”

But reflecting on Winston Churchill’s “The Gathering Storm,” the MSNBC host said he believes Churchill’s “ominous warnings to future generations’ will be particularly prevalent in 2018.

“While Trump’s eroding of U.S. prestige across the globe is disturbing, it is his administration’s undermining of democratic values that poses an even greater threat to our Constitution and country,” Scarborough said.

He said the country’s “constitutional norms tremble in the balance” give the president’s attacks on the First Amendment, independent counsels, and law enforcement officials—a reference to Trump’s criticisms of the FBI and its top officials, and special counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

“While the framers of the Constitution foresaw the possibility of a tyrannical president, they never let their imaginations be darkened by the possibility of a compliant Congress,” Scarborough said.

The “Morning Joe” host, who has been a frequent critic of the president’s, reminded readers the “storm is gathering,” and said, “how we respond in the months ahead may determine our fate for years to come.”

Bannon: 2016 Trump Tower meeting was 'treasonous'

By Maegan Vazquez, CNN Updated 10:40 AM ET, Wed January 3, 2018

Bannon: 2016 Trump Tower meeting was 'treasonous'
Anchor Muted Background

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon called the 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Trump campaign officials and a Russian lawyer purportedly offering damaging information about Hillary Clinton "treasonous," according to a new book obtained by The Guardian.

The book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" by Michael Wolff, is based on hundreds of interviews, including ones with President Donald Trump and his inner circle. According to the Guardian, Bannon addressed the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr., then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner and Russian operatives that was arranged when Trump Jr. agreed to meet a "Russian government attorney" after receiving an email offering him "very high level and sensitive information" that would "incriminate" Clinton.

"The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor -- with no lawyers. They didn't have any lawyers," Bannon continued, according to the Guardian. "Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad s***, and I happen to think it's all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately."

Bannon also reportedly told Wolff: "They're going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV."
The White House declined to comment Wednesday about Bannon's reported assertions.
Bannon also reportedly told Wolff that special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the Trump campaign's potential ties to Russia is centered on money laundering, saying that the White House is "sitting on a beach trying to stop a Category Five" hurricane.

"You realize where this is going ... This is all about money laundering. Mueller chose (senior prosecutor Andrew) Weissmann first and he is a money-laundering guy," Bannon reportedly said. "Their path to f***ing Trump goes right through Paul Manafort, Don Jr., and Jared Kushner ... It's as plain as a hair on your face."
Bannon said he believes Kushner, the White House senior adviser and the President's son-in-law, could be convinced to cooperate if Mueller probes his financial records.

"They're going to go right through that. They're going to roll those two guys up and say play me or trade me," Bannon is reported as saying, apparently referring to Trump Jr. and Kushner.
The Trump Tower meeting has been of intense interest to the congressional Russia investigators as well as Mueller.
Trump Jr. testified before House investigators last month but would not say what he and his father discussed after reports surfaced about the meeting, citing attorney-client privilege.

Steve Bannon is 'Schizophrenic,' Matt Drudge Says After New Trump Tower Meeting Revelations
Newsweek Michael Edison Hayden,Newsweek 4 hours ago

President Donald Trump's former strategist Steve Bannon is "schizophrenic" and in need of a full security detail after calling the Trump campaign's 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Kremlin-linked Russians "treasonous," says one of America's most-read right-wing journalists.

Matt Drudge, who runs the highly influential Drudge Report, made the remarks after Trump’s former political adviser called the meeting "treasonous" and cast new doubts on Team Trump's denials about the subject of the meeting.

"No wonder schizophrenic Steve Bannon has been walking around with a small army of bodyguards," Drudge tweeted after journalist Michael Wolff's book Fire and Fury was excerpted in The Guardian on Wednesday.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/former-trump-adviser-says-tried-190751186.html

As a candidate for president, Donald Trump didn’t understand the Constitution—and didn't want to learn about it, a key campaign aide said.

“I got as far as the Fourth Amendment, before his finger is pulling down on his lip and his eyes are rolling back in his head,” Sam Nunberg, a former adviser to the Trump campaign, said in Michael Wolff's bombshell new book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, excerpted Wednesday in New York magazine.

The book offers a bird's-eye view of Oval Office dysfunction courtesy of Wolff, who was given rare access and conducted scores of interviews with Trump and his inner circle after the 2016 election, but the candidate's lack of concern for constitutional basics remains a theme in his presidency.

The failure to worry about the Constitution makes sense, Wolff wrote, given that no one in Trump’s campaign, let alone the candidate, thought he would win.

Neither [Kellyanne] Conway nor Trump himself nor his son-in-law, Jared ­Kushner—the effective head of the campaign—wavered in their certainty,” Wolff wrote. “Their unexpected adventure would soon be over.”

But Trump and the others were horrified to find that they had won. The new President-elect Trump “looked as if he had seen a ghost,” according to Wolff's book. And the future first lady, Melania Trump, was in tears.

"And not of joy,” the book added.

From Breitbart:

http://www.breitbart.com/video/2018/01/0...s-dont-go-jail/

Tuesday on ABC’s “The View,” while discussing President Donald Trump’s tweet about nuclear buttons and North Korea, co-host Joy Behar said Trump was worried about FBI special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe and therefore he would “blow the whole world up so his stupid sons don’t have to go to jail.”

Joy Behar said, “Trump needs to be medicated and hospitalized at this point, or he is just going to kill all of us. You know, my feeling is probably they’re getting closer to him in the Mueller investigation, and that’s what this is about, a lot of it. He’ll blow the whole world up so his stupid sons don’t have to go to jail.

Sunny Hostin said, “I keep on wondering is there some sort of theory here, some sort of strategy he’s using. If truly he’s playing a game of chicken with a dictator in North Korea, we really are in trouble. People are talking about the 25th Amendment saying he’s not mentally fit to be the president. If you’re doing this, is there a mental fitness problem? We all know the ramifications of nuclear war.”

Meghan McCain asked, “Do you want him impeached right this second?”

Behar answered, “I want him out of office immediately. I do. No matter how they do it. I don’t know how they’ll do it — maybe the 25th Amendment.”

House Republicans are announcing they're leaving office at a significantly faster rate than any other recent Congresses, suggesting Democrats could pick up seats in the 2018 midterm elections. On Tuesday it was Pennsylvania Republican Bill Shuster, the influential chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.

Already, at least 29 House Republicans have announced they are retiring, running for another office or resigning outright. They're leaving from all over the map, from southern New Jersey to southern New Mexico.

Democrats need to pick up 24 House seats to retake the majority from Republicans, who've had control of the House since 2011.

It's Been an Open Secret All Along

The scandal of Michael Wolff’s new book isn’t its salacious details—it’s that everyone in Washington has known its key themes, and refused to act.


Who is also in on this open secret? Virtually everyone in a position to do something about it, which at the moment means members of the Republican majority in Congress.

They know what is wrong with Donald Trump. They know why it’s dangerous. They understand—or most of them do—the damage he can do to a system of governance that relies to a surprising degree on norms rather than rules, and whose vulnerability has been newly exposed. They know—or should—about the ways Trump’s vanity and avarice are harming American interests relative to competitors like Russia and China, and partners and allies in North America, Europe, and the Pacific.

They know. They could do something: hearings, investigations, demands for financial or health documents, subpoenas. Even the tool they used against the 42nd president, for failings one percent as grave as those of the 45th: impeachment.

They know. They could act. And they don’t. The failure of responsibility starts with Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan, but it doesn’t end with them. Every member of a bloc-voting majority shares responsibility for not acting on their version of the open secret. “Independent” Republicans like Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski share it. “Thoughtful” ones, like Ben Sasse and Jeff Flake. Those (in addition to Flake) who have nothing to lose electorally, from Bob Corker to Orrin Hatch. When they vote as a majority against strong investigations, against subpoenas, against requirements for financial disclosure, and most of all against protecting Robert Mueller and his investigation, they share complicity in the open secret.

We are watching the political equivalent of the Weinstein board paying off the objects of his abuse. We are watching Fox pay out its tens of millions to O’Reilly’s victims. But we’re watching it in real time, with the secret shared worldwide, and the stakes immeasurably higher.

http://www.cnn.com/2018/01/05/politics/trump-book-image/index.html

But as Washington consumes a sensational West Wing exposé by journalist Michael Wolff, Trump is being forced to watch as his prized image is ripped to shreds.

When a presidency is anchored so fundamentally on an image, as it is with Trump, rather than a long history of political achievement or ideological consistency, any deterioration of that image can be especially perilous. For Trump, who may be more conscious of how he is perceived than any politician in history, the mockery is likely to be especially painful.

Wolff, in some cases using on-the-record quotes, sketches an image far removed from the one constructed by Trump.
It's a picture of a President who knows little of policy details and cares less and appears not to perceive the vast responsibilities of his role.

Sometimes, this version of Trump appears fragile and out of control, prone to emotional and impulsive reactions, and seems lonely in the White House.

Trump Impeachment Odds Rise After Explosive 'Fire and Fury' Book Revelations
Newsweek Sam Schwarz,Newsweek 3 hours ago

President Donald Trump may have forcefully denied many of the stunning claims in the newly released bombshell book Fire and Fury, but international betting markets have adjusted the odds of a Trump impeachment in his first term, and the news is not good for the president.

Both Ireland-based gambling company Paddy Power and New Zealand–based prediction market PredictIt have increased the likelihood of Trump being impeached before his term ends at the beginning of 2021.

As the president is mired in international feuds with North Korea and Pakistan—to name a few—he may want to turn his attention inward to identify the greatest threats to his presidency, says Lee Brice, head of public relations for Paddy Power.

"With the simmering tension between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un, it seems like the president should be worrying about threats closer to home, with odds of an impeachment during his first term shortening to 4-7, a probability of 63.6 percent," Brice told Newsweek.

In betting terms, the shortening of odds means something is more likely to occur.

What should be even more alarming to the White House, according to Brice, is the shortening of odds for a Trump impeachment this year.

“It’s not just North Korea causing Trump fire and fury, as Michael Wolff’s new book has listed a series of damaging revelations. We now think it’s evens—50 percent chance that he’s impeached in 2018,” he added.

The oddsmakers at PredictIt, which handles its betting differently than Paddy Power does, are a bit more bullish on Trump's chances of avoiding impeachment and remaining president through the end of his first term. Still, its odds have also shortened over the past couple of days.

When PredictIt’s markets opened on January 2, the day the first excerpts from Wolff's book were released, you could make a 33-cent bet on Trump being impeached in his first term, putting its odds at approximately 2-to-1. On January 4, that number rose as high as 39 cents before plateauing at its current price of 37 cents.

Further, the market for bets on whether Trump will still be president at the end of 2018 and 2019 have experienced similar 5-cent swings. The difference may not appear extreme, but such a rapid swing in betting markets is usually attributable to a specific event. In this case, according to PredictIt spokesperson Will Jennings, that event is likely the Wolff book.

"These markets are responding in real time to the news," Jennings told Newsweek. "Given one of the Bannon excerpts from the book alluded to a possible money laundering case against President Trump, and the subsequent bump in his odds of impeachment, it’s possible some traders are reacting to that new information."

The number of shocking claims in Wolff's book are too many to mention, but a specific few—if proved true—could spell trouble for Trump and his presidency. One major claim, as Jennings pointed out, is that the Trump campaign laundered money. Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is pretty certain of it.

"This is all about money laundering," Bannon told Wolff in the book. "It’s as plain as a hair on your face."

Re: Trump Impeachment - 01/06/18 01:45 PM

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/wolff-says-...mps-presidency/


Michael Wolff, author of the new bombshell book "Fire and Fury: Inside Trump's White House," told the BBC in an interview broadcast Saturday that he believes understanding revelations resulting from his book about President Trump will "finally end this presidency."

"You know I think one of the interesting effects of the book so far is a very clear, 'emperor has no clothes' effect — that the story that I've told seems to present this presidency in such a way that it says he can't do this job, the emperor has no clothes, and suddenly everywhere people are going, 'Oh my God it's true, he has no clothes.' That's the background to the perception and the understanding that will finally end this presidency," Wolff told the BBC.

"Fire and Fury," released Friday, describes Mr. Trump in an unflattering light, as someone prone to fits of frustration who eats cheeseburgers and watches TV in bed at 6:30 p.m., and whose capabilities are questioned by his entire senior staff.

"He doesn't read, he doesn't listen, he's profoundly uncurious. He's just interested in what he's interested in and isn't interested in the larger problems of the world, almost any of them," Wolff told the BBC.

"That's on the one hand, so the other side is he's experiencing now issues, fundamentally physical, mental issues..." Wolff continued.

Wolff, who says he conducted more than 200 interviews for his book and took up a semi-permanent seat in the West Wing for months, was asked if he sees Mr. Trump as someone who is mentally incapable of being president of the United States.

"Well, I think he's intellectually incapable of being president of the United States," Wolff told the BBC.

Mr. Trump took to Twitter early Saturday to defend himself, calling himself " a very stable genius" and slamming Wolff, saying he made up stories to sell his book.

Wolff also addressed his description of the president as childlike, an assessment senior officials in the White House share, he said.

"Sometimes it's an 11-year-old. Sometimes it's a six-year-old. Sometimes it's a two-year-old," Wolff said. "All about his need for immediate gratification. I want what I want, when I want."


Wolff also stood by portions of his book that have been called into question, such as his claim that former British Prime Minister Tony Blair warned the Trump campaign that campaign aides were under surveillance by British spies. Blair has flat-out denied the claim, but Wolff said he stands by his sources.

These claims in Michael Wolff's new Trump book are being challenged

"Tony Blair, listen," Wolff told the BBC. "All I know is that Steve Bannon and Tony Blair came to the White House. I actually was there, sitting on the couch. Saw him there. And shortly thereafter, Jared Kushner and Steve Bannon got into a car, went out to Langley to see the director of the CIA and the deputy director, and to ask about these things that Tony Blair had told the president."

The author also addressed criticism that his book might be too one-dimensional, and if Mr. Trump was really incapable, he never could have made it to the White House.

"You know, I use the comparison of 'The Producers,'" Wolff said. "That this entire campaign was designed to bring Donald Trump fame and riches if he did not win, and winning is the thing that exposes him. And I would leave it there and say what we have is an event that should not have happened, and it is almost inexplicable that it did happen. And the fact that it has happened exposes the weakness of the system, but it also exposes Donald Trump himself. He has no clothes."

Jake Tapper Pulls The Plug On Stephen Miller’s Train Wreck Interview

“I’ve wasted enough of my viewers’ time,” the CNN host told President Donald Trump’s senior policy adviser.

CNN’s Jake Tapper has a message for top White House aide Stephen Miller: Stop wasting my viewers’ time.

Tapper shut down his tense interview Sunday with President Donald Trump’s senior policy adviser after Miller continued to parrot talking points touting his boss while also attacking CNN.

“I think I have wasted enough of my viewers’ time,” Tapper told Miller as he abruptly ended the aide’s air-time.

Before he was cut off, Miller fumbled when asked whether Trump met the Russian operatives after his son, Donald Trump Jr., got together with them in the infamous June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower. In an explosive new book by journalist Michael Wolff, former White House chief strategist Steven Bannon suggested there was “zero” chance Trump Jr. didn’t take the Russians to meet his father.

Despite having “no knowledge” of the meeting, Miller said he was certain all of the allegations in Wolff’s book are “a pure work of fiction” and “nothing but a pile of trash through and through.”

(Bannon on Sunday issued a statement backpedaling on his comments to Wolff about the meeting, which he had called “treasonous.”)

Miller, during his CNN appearance, praised Trump as “a self-made billionaire who revolutionized reality TV and who has changed the course of our politics.” He also lauded Trump as a “political genius.”

“I’m sure he’s watching and he’s happy that you said that,” Tapper responded.

Miller, in turn, scolded Tapper for making “condescending” and “snide” remarks and bashed CNN for airing “24 hours of negative, anti-Trump, hysterical coverage.”

I think the viewers right now can ascertain who is being hysterical,” Tapper responded. “You’re being obsequious, you’re being a factotum in order to please [Trump].”

While Trump had a decidedly different view of the segment, many Twitter users applauded Tapper’s decision to pull the plug on Miller.

by Amelia Mavis Christnot January 9, 2018

Former Republican Senator Gordon Humphrey minces no words when it comes to his perception of the fitness of Donald Trump to be president. Humphrey went so far as to endorse Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election after Trump won the Republican Party nomination.

In a recent interview on MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes”, Humphrey gave another detailed list of his concerns regarding the president’s conduct while in office. He also called out his former colleagues and Republican Party members for enabling that behavior.

“The talk about comparing nuclear buttons, whether there was sexual innuendo in that or not was just outrageous… I mean… you don’t… The president apparently has no understanding of what a nuclear war would be like,” Humphrey stated.

This is extremely dangerous. The man is irrational. He’s an ignoramus. He’s totally unequipped and unprepared for the office. He’s incurious, unread… and on top of that he’s a man of depraved character and probably mentally ill. I mean delusional. He makes up his own reality, and believes it. “

These Twitters! We’ve got two years now of evidence the man is weird, bizarre, not of sound mind. He’s surely mentally ill to some degree. Precisely what that diagnosis might be is really immaterial because it’s the effect that counts and the president is undermining the national institutions that are of such great value to us.”

The First Amendment, Freedom of Speech and Freedom of the Press to name the most important. And he’s endangering national security with all his saber rattling and comparison of his nuclear button with that of the North Korean dictator.”

Did someone die because of the Steele dossier?

An attorney for the co-founder of the opposition research firm that sought to dig up dirt on President Trump says someone has died as a result of their findings.

On Monday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein released a 312-page transcript of Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson's August interview with the Senate Judiciary Committee. In that transcript, Simpson attorney Josh Levy tells the committee that his client "wants to be very careful to protect his sources."

"Somebody's already been killed as a result of the publication of this dossier and no harm should come to anybody related to this honest work," Levy explains.

The dossier, which alleges that then-candidate Donald Trump colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 election campaign, has never been substantiated. It was written by a former British spy, Christopher Steele, and paid for by Fusion GPS, which was operating as a client of the Clinton campaign.

Steele's dossier was published in full by Buzzfeed in January 2017 after being offered to numerous news outlets. And it has been speculated that Oleg Erovinkin, a former KGB general and chief of staff to Igor Sechin, was one of the primary sources for the document.

Sechin, the CEO of state-owned Russian oil giant Rosneft, plays a major role in the dossier, which accuses him of having secret meetings with Trump campaign officials as an intermediary of the Russian government. Erovinkin was found dead in his car due in December 2016, according to Russian media. It was later claimed that he died of a heart attack.

Conspiracy theorists have long speculated that Erovinkin is the source of the claims involving Sechin. However, there is no evidence that has emerged to back up this assertion.

Erovinkin is one of a number of high-profile Russians who died in the months after the 2016 election.

Mr. Trump has repeatedly dismissed the Steele memo as "fake news." Neither Levy nor his client elaborated on the identity of the person who allegedly died as a result of the memo's publication, which took place after Erovinkin died.

In May, FBI director Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election. Mueller's team and the White House have discussed the possibility of interviewing Mr. Trump in the near future.

FBI knew of possible Trump-Russia collusion, according to Glenn Simpson’s Senate testimony

by Ken Dilanian and Mike Memoli

WASHINGTON — By the time the FBI sat down in September 2016 for a full interview with the ex-British spy who had been researching Donald Trump’s Russia connections, the bureau had already received information raising concerns about possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, according to a transcript made public Tuesday.

Glenn Simpson, a former newspaper reporter and the founder of a research firm called Fusion GPS, spoke to the Senate Judiciary Committee for more than 10 hours in August about his research into Trump, and on Tuesday more than 300 pages of his testimony were released by the committee’s ranking Democrat, Dianne Feinstein of California.

During the Senate hearing, he was asked to respond to a comment from a White House spokeswoman, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, that his was a “Democrat-linked firm” that “took money from the Russian government” and “created the phony dossier that's been the basis for all of the Russia scandal fake news."

“It's a false allegation,” he said. “It's political rhetoric to call the dossier phony. The memos are field reports of real interviews that Chris's network conducted and there's nothing phony about it. We can argue about what's prudent and what's not, but it's not a fabrication.”

White House Official Floated Withdrawing U.S. Forces to Please Putin

A member of Trump’s National Security Council staff had a radical notion: to pare back American troops in Europe as a way to curry favor with the Kremlin

A senior National Security Council official proposed withdrawing some U.S. military forces from Eastern Europe as an overture to Vladimir Putin during the early days of the Trump presidency, according to two former administration officials.

While the proposal was ultimately not adopted, it is the first known case of senior aides to Donald Trump seeking to reposition U.S. military forces to please Putin—something that smelled, to a colleague, like a return on Russia’s election-time investment in President Trump.

Federal judge temporarily blocks Trump’s decision to end DACA
Sudhin Thanawala and Andrew Dalton, The Associated Press Published 11:27 p.m. ET Jan. 9, 2018 | Updated 5:51 a.m. ET Jan. 10, 2018

A federal judge on Tuesday night temporarily blocked the Trump administration’s decision to end a program protecting young immigrants from deportation. Time



SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge on Tuesday night temporarily blocked the Trump administration’s decision to end a program protecting young immigrants from deportation.

U.S. District Judge William Alsup granted a request by California and other plaintiffs to prevent President Trump from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program while their lawsuits play out in court.

Alsup said lawyers in favor of DACA clearly demonstrated that the young immigrants “were likely to suffer serious, irreparable harm” without court action. The judge also said the lawyers have a strong chance of succeeding at trial.

DACA has protected about 800,000 people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children or came with families who overstayed visas. The program includes hundreds of thousands of college-age students.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced in September that the program would be phased out, saying former President Barack Obama had exceeded his authority when he implemented it in 2012.

More: In extraordinary public negotiation with Congress, Trump promises to sign DACA bill


The move sparked a flurry of lawsuits nationwide.

Alsup considered five separate lawsuits filed in Northern California, including one by the state and another by the governing board of the University of California school system.


Pushing for compromise on immigration reform, President Donald Trump urged a bipartisan group of lawmakers gathered at the White House to put "country before party" and negotiate a deal in two phases, first by addressing young immigrants. (Jan. 9) AP

During a court hearing on Dec. 20, the judge grilled an attorney for the Department of Justice over the government’s justification for ending DACA, saying many people had come to rely on it and faced a “real” and “palpable” hardship from its loss.

Alsup also questioned whether the administration had conducted a thorough review before ending the program.

Brad Rosenberg, a Justice Department attorney, said the administration considered the effects of ending DACA and decided to phase it out over time instead of cutting it immediately.

DACA recipients will be allowed to stay in the U.S. for the remainder of their two-year authorizations. Any recipient whose status was due to expire within six months also got a month to apply for another two-year term.

The Justice Department said in court documents that DACA was facing the possibility of an abrupt end by court order, but Alsup was critical of that argument.

People took out loans, enrolled in school and even made decisions about whether to get married and start families on the basis of DACA and now face “horrific” consequences from the loss of the program, said Jeffrey Davidson, an attorney for the University of California governing board.

“The government considered none of this at all when they decided to rescind DACA,” he said at the hearing.

DACA recipients are commonly referred to as “dreamers,” based on never-passed proposals in Congress called the DREAM Act that would have provided similar protections for young immigrants.

Thats OK. Trump is now in favor of DACA. Well that was yesterday. Today will probably be different after the hardliners tell Trump was his position is again.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/poli...ion/1016369001/

President Trump promised Tuesday to sign what he called a "bill of love" to extend protections to 800,000 immigrants who entered the United States illegally as children — if Congress can work out the details.

"You folks are going to have to come up with a solution," Trump told 25 lawmakers in a remarkable televised negotiation at the White House. "And if you do, I'm going to sign that solution."

Tucker Carlson Turns On Trump: ‘What Was The Point Of Running For President?’

Fox News host Tucker Carlson has been a staunch defender of President Donald Trump, but that may have changed on Tuesday.

Carlson called it a “weird scene” when Trump met with lawmakers of both parties and indicated he’d sign just about any deal they make on immigration.

“I’m not going to say, ‘Oh, gee, I want this or I want that,’” Trump said. “I’ll be signing it, because I have a lot of confidence in the people in this room that you’re going to come up with something really good.”

Trump also indicated a willingness to protect young undocumented immigrants, known as the Dreamers.

Carlson said that’s a “completely different Donald Trump” from the one that talked tough on immigration on the campaign trail.

Carlson also noted that Trump boasts about his negotiating skills.

“He clearly has skills as a negotiator,” Carlson said. “Where were they today?”

So even they process the ability to control their impulses for a period of time but the key word "period" he will be a loose canon today especially after his DACA deadline was put oh hold since this morning.

Trump Impeachment Vote Will Take Place After President’s ‘Racist’ ‘Shithole’ Remarks, Democrat Says

Newsweek Tracy Lee,Newsweek 3 hours ago

Texas Democrat Al Green vowed on Friday to force another impeachment vote on the House floor next week. The announcement was made on the back of President Donald Trump’s reported description of African nations, El Salvador and Haiti as “shithole countries.”

“Congressional condemnation of racist bigotry is not enough,” Green said in a tweet. “In Congress, talk is cheap-it’s how we vote that counts. Next week, I will again bring a resolution to impeach @realDonaldTrump. I will put my vote where my mouth is.”

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) did not hold back in her criticism of President Donald Trump for reportedly suggesting that Haiti and some African nations were “shithole countries.”

Trump allegedly made the comment during an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers on Thursday while arguing against restoring protections for immigrants from those areas. Trump later claimed he didn’t use those specific words, but Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), who was there at the time, said he did.

During an interview with stand-in host Joy Reid on MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes” on Friday night, Waters said the U.S. was being “represented by the most despicable human being that could possibly ever walk the earth.”

“I don’t know when Americans are going to tire of this lying man,” she added.

Waters has also issued a statement regarding Trump’s reported comments, in which she called the president “a racist and indecent man with no good values.”

“Donald Trump is an embarrassment and a national disgrace,” she added. “Members of Congress have a responsibility to the American people and our democracy to impeach him.”

Re: Trump Impeachment - 01/30/18 09:41 AM

Seth Meyers took an in-depth look into the growing case that President Donald Trump obstructed justice on Monday’s broadcast of “Late Night.”

And there was one particular detail that Meyers couldn’t quite believe.

Namely, that in May 2017, Trump reportedly mocked the wife of then-acting FBI director Andrew McCabe for her failure to win a Virginia state Senate seat two years previously.

Per NBC News, Trump suggested McCabe “ask his wife how it feels to be a loser” during a telephone call, which he made the day after firing James Comey as director of the bureau.

“You told him to ask his wife what it’s like to be a loser?” asked Meyers. “You should ask your wife what it’s like to be married to one!”

“Awful,” Meyers added. “You are awful.”

Re: Trump Impeachment - 01/30/18 09:56 AM

Make no mistake, Nunes and his co-conspirators don’t believe there’s an actual Deep State conspiracy at the FBI or the intelligence agencies. This boundlessly cynical plot is an attempt to shield Donald Trump not just from Bob Mueller’s Russia investigation, but from any form of accountability or oversight. I have to give them credit their brazen effort. The coordination between Fox News, the Trump Uber Alles caucus in the House, talk radio, and the online Cray Vortex is rather impressive. In the Best Supporting Hackers role, the Russians chimed in right on cue to amplify the GOP’s message.

Call me old fashioned, but I remember when working hand-in-hand with a hostile foreign government to undermine American institutions was called “treason.” The story was falling apart even before the Moron Caucus beclowned themselves with the “Secret Society” theme, because the memo obviously hadn’t done enough to reduce the Republicans in stature and seriousness. Seizing on a single, obviously joking text message, Sen. Ron Johnson took to the microphones to describe the FBI’s alleged “Secret Society” as if he had watched Eyes Wide Shut enough times to memorize it. Fidelio, Ron. Fidelio.

When confronted with the risible absurdity of his claim, Johnson said “informants” had told them about the dark, satanic orgies of the FBI. Within hours, he denied all of it in an embarrassingly clumsy walk back. From the Trump-right obsession with “Q-Anon” as a source of Deep State gibberish to the uncritical acceptance of even the most outrageously absurd rumors, the GOP is becoming defined as a party of conspiracy. It’s is a bad look for a governing party, and it’s getting worse by the day.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/fox-news-driving-us-toward-175409788.html

Fox News and Sean Hannity have, through their own brand of propaganda, successfully manipulated the president of the United States into taking action that the FBI has “grave concerns” about and that his own Justice Department described as “extraordinarily reckless.”

Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee took an unprecedented vote this week to declassify a memo prepared by Republican staff of Chairman Devin Nunes that accuses the DOJ and FBI of abusing their authority to obtain a surveillance order from the FISA court. On Friday, Trump chose to release the document.

The Daily Beast reported that “Trump has been in regular contact with Hannity over the phone in recent weeks, as the Fox News prime-time star and Trump ally has encouraged the prompt release” of the memo.

“Hannity’s persistent advocacy reinforced Trump’s already growing determination to get that memo into the public realm,” the outlet said.

The Washington Post reported that Trump “did not actually see the memo ... until Wednesday afternoon.”

The president has now willfully ignored the director of the FBI (who he appointed) and his own deputy attorney general in favor of Hannity. Remember that the next time Trump and Republicans talk about being the political party that will restore law and order in America.

https://www.dailywire.com/news/4834/trumps-101-lies-hank-berrien

Donald Trump has repeatedly labeled his political opponents liars. He dubbed Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) Lyin' Ted when it became clear that Cruz was a serious rival for his nomination; he called Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) an "even bigger liar" than Cruz. He dubbed Dr. Ben Carson a "pathological liar" and said former Florida Governor Jeb Bush's lies were almost as bad as Cruz's. Trump has termed virtually every mildly adversarial media member a liar, too.

But there's only one truly massive liar in this race: Donald Trump. When Politico attempted to measure how many lies Trump told over the course of 4.6 hours of speeches, they found that he lied, on average, once every five minutes. When Huffington Post catalogued his lies over the course of just one town hall event, they came up with 71 lies.

Its coming. The wheels of justice grind slowly but they do grind.

**************************************************

A federal judge in Washington on Friday threw out a civil lawsuit brought by President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman that sought to challenge the authority of the special counsel in the Russia investigation.

The decision was a blow to Paul Manafort's defense against numerous charges brought by special counsel Robert Mueller and a rejection of his use of a civil case to attack his criminal prosecution. It was the first of Manafort's challenges to Mueller's authority. He has made similar arguments in moving to dismiss the two criminal cases against him.

In her 24-page ruling , U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who also presides in one of Manafort's criminal cases, rejected his request for an order protecting him from future prosecutions by Mueller's team.

"he's as petulant as a spoiled child"


We are witnessing any of these adjectives in no necessary order but a guaranteed negative response every single day from Trump and his supporters. Trump can see the end, evident by his lack of attendance at the WH correspondent dinner......the truth is sometimes hard to absorb and deal with in spite of a rally in another state which attempts to hide the obvious.......he's close to being done.

More evident that Trump's days of lying and claiming "fake news" are quickly coming to and end. It was quite evident that Hillary Clinton was literally robbed of an election on day one and before anyone deem me a fan of her, you're totally wrong but we all know that Trump's continued reiteration that he won by honest means is the total fabrication here. Finally to think that an electoral college gave him an edge is as logical as a school janitor getting a perfect score on a SAT and considered a genius. If he/she was that smart, why are they doing such menial work, adversely, if Trump is that smart or qualified, why has he made so many bumbling mistakes while showing his constant lack of knowledge and ignorance?

When you inevitably hear Trump & his co-conspirators assert today's indictment of 12 Russians did not include any Americans--as if that gets them off the hook--just remember Rbt Mueller is engaged in the methodical, grinding work to set the factual predicate to indict Americans.

From:

WHY DID SUSAN RICE ISSUE A STAND DOWN ORDER ON RUSSIAN HACKING?
Submitted by Daniel Greenfield on Thu, 2018-06-21 04:03
Daniel Greenfield

Former President Barack Obama’s cybersecurity czar confirmed Wednesday that former national security adviser Susan Rice told him to “stand down” in response to Russian cyber attacks during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Michael Daniel, whose official title was “cybersecurity coordinator,” confirmed the stand-down order during a Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearing held to review the Obama and President Donald Trump’s administrations’ policy response to Russian election interference.

Why?

There are two possible answers.

1. Obama was all-in on appeasement. And while he enjoyed browbeating allies like the US and Israel, he rolled over and played dead for enemies like Iran, China and Russia.

2. The hacking was politically useful. Since we now know that Obama Inc. was conducting surveillance and eavesdropping on Trump associates, Russian intervention provided a very useful justification for the domestic operation. Rice issued a stand down order because she wanted the Russians to go on doing exactly what they were doing.

Re: Trump Impeachment - 07/13/18 01:20 PM

There's one very big obstacle to your premise son, Obama told Trump before, during and after the election that Russia was interfering. Remember the now famous Trump campaign speech " Russia if you're listening, find those Clinton E Mails"

The problem with your premise is that there was no hack. The Russians did not "go find" Hillary's emails, Podesta gave them to them when he fell for an elementary phishing scam, which a high school student could have originated. These scams go on every day every where. Businesses spend millions and billions every year on information security tools and plans, to protect their networks and to train their employees not to do exactly what Podesta did.

Roger Stone has be scared to death right about now:

- Guccifer 2.0 Just named in Indictment by Rod Rosenstein
- Stone had communications with Guccifer 2.0
- Mueller has requested information from 7 Stone associates.

In other words, he's almost certainly going to be indicted.

CNN’s Jake Tapper got the impression from Friday’s set of indictments in the Mueller investigation that President Barack Obama‘s administration wasn’t the best at deterring or sussing out Russian hackers.

Speaking to former Obama WH official Samantha Vinograd about the indictments, Tapper said: “It’s unfair to hold you responsible for the entire Obama administration, but you read this indictment and you think, ‘Boy, the Obama administration, they really kind of missed the ball on this.”

“I mean, yes, they issued that report, but President Obama said… he told Putin to cut it out or knock it off, it wasn’t particularly strong, and then there was all this hesitation about warning the American people for fear of looking partisan,” he continued. “In retrospect, doesn’t it seem to you that the Obama administration was at least to a degree asleep at the switch?”

“Well, I’m not here to be an apologist for the Obama administration,” Vinograd replied. “I was gone when this happened.

Obama will eternally take a share of the blame son but where does trump fit in since this data was relayed to him during his campaign and after his election? Furthermore, why did Trump vehemently deny and call the entire situation a lie and witch hunt, even the day that the FBI made the big announcement? Bottom line, Donald is a pathological liar who even believe his own lies as truth to the degree that he doesn't keep track of the lies he's stated yesterday, only to contradict himself the next day. For the last 18 months, trump owns the Russian hacking himself and only himself...remember son, up till Friday and look up your postings, you called it all a witch hunt yourself...HMMMMMMMMM

Trump refuses to rebuke Putin on election interference or even acknowledge that it happened. We are now at a wholly new level of crisis. Trump has effectively sided with our totalitarian enemy. Most Republicans are fully complicit. Democracy in America hangs in the balance

We know that the Republicans have no ethics nor a backbone, today will be a great indicator as to how deficient they are in their ability to stand up straight. I am amazed at the hypocrisy shown last week in their attack of a former FBI agent who posted his hatred for Trump and did all they could to derail him. Let's see if the hypocrisy continues being that we have a US president on the verge of treason.

My parents reiterated to me as a teen 'If you lie with dogs, you'll get fleas" The entire world got to witness this fact yesterday, Putin is a mangy pit bull, who has control over his supposed master. Remember these words?

Sooo, very interesting that Lisa Page, testifying in closed door session before congress, without FBI lawyer or support, tells mighty different story than the united front of Comey and Strzok. Ms. Page says that it was the Chinese, not the Russians, that hacked the DNC server, and obtained Hillary's "lost" emails, and that the FBI knew this but were afraid that if it got out would hurt Hillary's campaign. So they buried it and went with the Trump-Russia Collusion story instead.

It will be interesting to see what happens with this turn of events.

Krystal Ball: President Trump will 'destroy' the GOP


Facing backlash from his normally loyal lackeys, yesterday the president offered Republican leaders the tiniest shred of a sliver of a cover story.

To say it was a fig leaf would be a disservice to the comparatively full coverage this frond can provide.

It was laughable – and, in fact, I did laugh.

But republicans will grasp it and try to cover their exposed bits as if they have any shame left. Yes, this week has been revealing.

As I've watched this whole sad, predictable, and yet still horrifying spectacle unfold, one thing has become clear to me: One day, this president will actually destroy the Republican party.

Just think about it – those who wish the party ill could not possibly have planned a better scenario to reveal the fundamental rot, hypocrisy, and venality of republican party leadership.

Consider all that Trump has exposed.

Democrats have long said that Republicans don't really care about fiscal prudence and sure enough, they've merrily added a trillion dollars to the national debt.

Democrats have long said that the Republican refrain of family values is hollow and hypocritical.

Two words: Stormy Daniels.

Democrats have long said that Republican leaders really only care about power and holding onto their political positions. As we watch them toady along behind this president, nothing could be more clear.

It’s frequently said that this president has unified the whole of the Republican party behind him. – 90% support him. It’s a remarkable degree of loyalty.

But what exactly have they gotten behind? Speaking of the dire straits that the Virginia GOP is in, one strategist said: at some point, it stops being 'never Trump,' ...and it starts being 'never republican.'"

That day will come. the events of this week hastened its arrival.

So let’s see, in the past 24 hours, Trump has 1) threatened to walk away from Article 5 of NATO, 2) said Russia is not still meddling in 2018 after his appointed DNI issued a red alert, and 3) threatened to turn over McFaul and Browder to Putin for questioning.

Re: Trump Impeachment - 07/19/18 03:22 AM

From Fox News:

FBI Director Christopher Wray on Wednesday defended Special Counsel Robert Mueller as a “straight shooter,” and said the Russia investigation is no “witch hunt.”

Speaking at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado, Wray said he stood by his view that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election in some capacity and that the threat remained active.

“My view has not changed... Russia attempted to interfere with the last election and it continues to engage in malign influence operations to this day.”

He said the Kremlin's intentions then, and now, have been “aimed at sowing discord and divisiveness.”

“I don’t try to weigh in on all of his opinions... I’m not much of a Twitter guy.”

When asked if he ever considered resigning over revealing sources and methods, Wray said that despite being a “low key guy,” people should not mistake “what my spine is made of.”

“I’ll just leave it at that,” he finished.

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trump-tape-michael-cohen-playboy_us_5b520632e4b0b15aba8e5db7

Cohen has been embroiled in an FBI investigation and scandals involving secret payments to silence both McDougal and porn star Stormy Daniels, who has also said she had an affair with Trump. Investigators are probing the extent to which Cohen, who is seen as Trump’s fixer, helped cover up other matters involving Trump and whether he violated campaign finance laws.

Earlier this year, Trump initially denied knowledge of the payment to Daniels, but later admitted Cohen represented him in “this crazy Stormy Daniels deal,” making it more difficult for him to distance himself from Cohen.

McDougal has accused Cohen of being involved in a deal with the tabloid the National Enquirer to kill her story of the alleged affair. She has claimed that she approached the tabloid with the story in 2016, but it was never made public. David Pecker, the CEO of American Media Inc., the National Enquirer’s parent company, is a friend of Trump’s.

In the September 2016 conversation, Cohen and Trump were discussing a plan by Cohen to attempt to purchase the rights to McDougal’s story from AMI for roughly $150,000, according to one person familiar with recording.

Trump can be heard urging Cohen to make sure he properly documents the agreement to buy the rights and urges him to use a check — rather than cash — to keep a record of the transaction, the person said.

It is unclear why Cohen and Trump sought to purchase the story from AMI and then did not complete the transaction.


It from the Washington Post and a critical thinker is going to come up with three observations:

1. They are not discussing paying off the hooker; they are discussing purchasing a story that she is trying to sell to the National Enquirer (parent company AMI)
2. Trump clearly wants the entire transaction on the books, not hidden
3. While it was discussed, they never paid a dime.

But you are not a critical thinker, you are a Trump hater, and thus will never concede a thing.

Critical thinking is not demonstrated through Twitter, nor is it demonstrated by refusing to see facts (I provided you the context of the tape above). Again, their discussion as recorded was never about paying off a Playboy model, it was about purchasing the rights to her story from the National Enquirer/AMI through a proper legal agreement for $150k. But for whatever reason, they never went through with it; no money was ever paid; moot point.

Being obtuse doesn't make you smart Kyle, it just makes you look like a fool who refuses to see anything outside of what he wants to see.

ASPEN, Colo. – The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee called President Trump the “gravest threat to American democracy” he’s ever seen after a Helsinki summit at which, he said, the president showed that he was “prepared to essentially betray the national security interests of the United States.”

“One of the terrible realizations of the last year and a half for me is that the damage that the Russians have done to our democracy by meddling in our election is nothing compared to the damage our own president is doing to our democracy by attacking the Justice Department and by denigrating our press,” Rep. Adam Schiff said in an interview with the Yahoo News podcast Skullduggery. “I think he is doing enormous damage to our national security beyond anything the Russians could do to us.”

In what can only be seen as a thinly veiled attempt to distract attention from the confirmation that there’s a tape of him talking about paying off a Playboy model with whom he allegedly had an affair, Trump teed off on the NFL once again Friday night. He called on Commissioner Roger Goodell to kick players out of a game if they kneel during the national anthem and to suspend them without pay for the season if they do it again.

If only the president would realize he isn’t an autocrat like the man he so admires, Vladimir Putin. You know, the one Trump fawned over on Monday despite knowing for more than 18 months that Putin personally ordered the hacking of our electoral process, which just so happens to be the cornerstone of our democracy.

But the Constitution and the ideals on which this country are founded mean little to Trump. If they did, he’d understand that the player protests have never been about the flag, the anthem, the military or the police. They’re about trying to draw attention to the racial and economic discrimination that continues to divide our country – a divide Trump deepens every opportunity he gets.

http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-r...in-a-nanosecond

A conservative columnist for The Washington Post on Friday wrote that the current political climate makes him miss former President Obama, saying he would take the Democrat back in a “nanosecond.”

Max Boot was a foreign policy adviser in both of the Republican presidential campaigns against Obama in 2008 and 2012.

Despite his criticisms of the former commander in chief, Boot wrote that Obama’s presidency now “appears to be a lost golden age when reason and morality reigned.”


Boot wrote that he gained a “new perspective” on the Obama administration after watching him deliver a speech in South Africa on the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s birth.

“I was moved nearly to tears by his eloquent defense of a liberal world order that President Trump appears bent on destroying,” Book wrote.

Obama appeared to offer wide-ranging criticism of Trump in the Tuesday speech, saying “those in power seek to undermine every institution or norm that gives democracy meaning."

Boot said Obama’s speech was not full of self-praise or name-calling like many from Trump.

“Obama has a far better claim than Trump to being a ‘very stable genius,’ but he didn’t call himself one,” Boot wrote. “The sentences were complete and sonorous — and probably written by the speaker himself.”

“Imagine Trump writing anything longer than a tweet — and even those are full of mistakes,” he added.

Obama’s White House was also not full of the scandals seen in the current administration, Boot pointed out.0

Donald Trump may be experiencing the most difficult week of his presidency and is reacting by doubling-down again and again, according to a new report by the Wall Street Journal.

Trump is frustrated by being told he can’t be seen as too close to the Russian dictator who likely helped install him in office, being told he can’t criticize the Federal Reserve and that he can’t slam the intelligence agencies which have told the American people of Russia’s plot to support Trump in the 2016 election.

“All he’s hearing in D.C. is ‘you can’t do this, you can’t do that.’ He can’t criticize the Fed, he can’t criticize the intelligence community,” said a source close to Trump. “He’s obviously going to get frustrated by the can’t-do mentality.”

Trump will never listen to advice, the story said.

“The president doesn’t respect norms,” the source said. “Norms are rules written by somebody else.”

Even when his team thought they had agreed to a plan with Trump, he bungled it.

The plan before his meeting with Vladimir Putin had been to spin the indictments as a positive, with Trump set to “shove it in Putin’s face and look strong doing it.”

Instead he rolled over and gave equal creditability to Putin and American intelligence.

The Journal talked to Andy Card, chief of staff to President George W. Bush, who said this was likely Trump’s worst week yet.

“I think he had the most challenging week of his presidency in terms of living up to his own expectations,” said Card. “I do think he’s come to recognize that it didn’t go the way he thought it would go… I’m not sure he likes learning the lessons he’s learned.”

Re: Trump Impeachment - 07/22/18 02:53 PM

Wow. Please read this slowly and let it sink in

https://www.politicususa.com/2018/07/22/trey-gowdy-trump-cabinet-resign.html

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) suggested that Trump’s UN Ambassador, Secretary of State, Director of National Intelligence, and FBI Director all consider quitting after the president sided with Putin on Russian election meddling.

GOWDY: I can tell you this, Bret, the president has access to every bit of evidence, even more than those of us on House Intel. And Will and I serve on Intel. He has access to Pompeo and Chris Wray and Dan Coats and Nikki Haley.

The evidence is overwhelming. It can be proven beyond any evidentiary burden that Russia is not our friend and they tried to attack us in 2016. So, the president either needs to rely on the people that he has chosen to advise him, or those advisors need to reevaluate whether or not they can serve in this administration.

But the disconnect cannot continue. The evidence is overwhelming and the president needs to say that and act like it.

BAIER: So, he eventually set it through the week, Congressman, but what do you think was the evolution there? Why the hesitation?

GOWDY: I don’t know. I watched the press conference. It wasn’t just that line. It was — the president missed, I think, a really good opportunity to distinguish the United States from any other country, but especially from Russia, and I don’t know what was said in a private conversation.

But I do know this — we got a classified briefing this week, Bret. There is no way you can listen to the evidence and not conclude, not that the Democrats were the victims, but the United States of America were the victims. We were the victims of what Russia did in 2016, and it ought to be a source of unity and rallying around the fact that we are never going to allow this to happen again and we’re going to punish those who try to do it.

And there was this equivocation during the press conference that I’m glad he corrected it, but when you’re the leader of the free world, every syllable matters and you really shouldn’t be having to correct it when you’re the leader of the free world.

This is the same Trey Gowdy who spent an entire hearing attacking Peter Strzok
Gowdy’s comments are indicative of the fine line that some Republicans are trying to walk in this scandal. It is hard to believe that this is the same congressman who spent an entire day in a hearing to discredit Peter Strzok. Gowdy has gone from being in the witch hunt camp to suggesting that Trump advisors consider resigning. Of course, Gowdy can try to have it both ways because he is leaving Congress, but his comments show how Republicans have boxed themselves in by defending Trump.

When is the last time that you heard a member of the president’s own party tell members of his cabinet to resign?

In my lifetime, I can’t remember it ever happening.

The Trump ship is sinking, and even members of his party are starting to warn others to get out.

Trumpsters would love the narrative that he's frustrated because he has being investigated since his presidency but realistically most can counter by stating that "If you aren't doing anything unethical or illegal, what should you worry about?" More so, if someone criticizes you and you've done nothing wrong, let it roll off your back. Liberals know beyond a shadow of a doubt, Trump is screwed up in the head because his fear is turning into reality, you've been caught Sir.

By Michael S. Schmidt and Maggie Haberman
July 26, 2018

WASHINGTON — For years, President Trump has used Twitter as his go-to public relations weapon, mounting a barrage of attacks on celebrities and then political rivals even after advisers warned he could be creating legal problems for himself.

Those concerns now turn out to be well founded.
The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, is scrutinizing tweets and negative statements from the president about Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the former F.B.I. director James B. Comey, according to three people briefed on the matter.

Several of the remarks came as Mr. Trump was also privately pressuring the men — both key witnesses in the inquiry — about the investigation, and Mr. Mueller is examining whether the actions add up to attempts to obstruct the investigation by both intimidating witnesses and pressuring senior law enforcement officials to tamp down the inquiry.

Mr. Mueller wants to question the president about the tweets. His interest in them is the latest addition to a range of presidential actions he is investigating as a possible obstruction case

https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/27/politics/jay-goldberg-rudy-giuliani-michael-cohen-cnntv/index.html

President Donald Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, substantially weakened his case against Michael Cohen by going back and forth as to whether Cohen could tell federal prosecutors the truth, said Jay Goldberg, President Donald Trump's friend and former lawyer.

Giuliani called Cohen, Trump's former personal lawyer, "honorable" and truthful on several occasions before an audio recording of a discussion between Cohen and Trump about buying rights to a Playboy model's story about an alleged affair Trump took part in became publicized.

After CNN aired the audio, Giuliani called Cohen a "pathological liar" and said he doesn't "see how he has any credibility."
"I expected something like this from Cohen," Giuliani told CNN's Chris Cuomo on Thursday. "He's been lying all week. He's been lying for years."

Goldberg, who served as Trump's divorce lawyer for the President's first two marriages, said Giuliani "immeasurably" damaged his case against Cohen by changing his tune.

"I knew as soon as Giuliani spoke that he was damaging Trump's case immeasurably," Goldberg told CNN's "Erin Burnett Out Front." "It ranks near 100 in terms of damage."

"No defense lawyer would say that," Goldberg later added. Goldberg argued that Giuliani's early assertion on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" that Cohen would tell federal prosecutors the truth "strips the defense of its main weapon of claiming that he is coloring his testimony to favor the government, so he can get a letter of cooperation."

The former Trump lawyer also said that he advised the President not to hire Giuliani.
"I didn't think Giuliani knew how to handle a case from the defense perspective. He was a long-time prosecutor and he didn't know how to set a case up for the possible impeachment of a witness such as Cohen," Goldberg said.

Let's get this number to 30% by the Midterms!

Senators are demanding that Donald Trump Jr. return to testify to the Senate Judiciary Committee after Michael Cohen exposed that his father knew in advance about the meeting between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives.

Senators are demanding that Donald Trump Jr. come back and testify to the Senate Judiciary Committee — this time under oath — after new revelations that his father knew about the clandestine campaign meeting with Russian operatives.

According to Trump’s former personal lawyer and “fixer,” Michael Cohen, the elder Trump knew in advance about the meeting at Trump Tower. At that infamous gathering, Don Jr. was among the senior campaign advisers who met with Russian operatives offering up dirt on Hillary Clinton.

But when he testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee as part of the ongoing probe into Russian election interference, Don Jr. reportedly said his father did not know about the event.

That is a problem, and members of the committee are demanding that Don Jr. do something about it.

Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) told NBC News the claims from Cohen “raise important questions” about the veracity of Don Jr.’s testimony.

Leahy continued, “It’s time for Donald Trump Jr. to come back before the Senate Judiciary Committee to answer them, but this time in public, under oath.”

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said in a statement, “If reports are true that President Trump knew in advance of the 2016 Trump Tower meeting, it would suggest that Donald Trump Jr. may have misled Judiciary Committee staff when he was interviewed.”

Feinstein said the discrepancy between Cohen and Don Jr.’s testimony “demonstrates why he must come before the committee to answer questions.”

Don Jr. has already lied to the public about the meeting. He first claimed the Russians came to Trump Tower during the campaign to simply discuss adoption laws. But then the New York Times obtained his emails showing that the meeting was focused on campaign dirt.

Don Jr. could face criminal liability for lying to the Judiciary Committee.


Appearing on MSNBC, defense attorney Danny Cevallos explained that even though he did not testify under oath, Don Jr. may be in violation of the law: “As long as he intended to mislead or omit factual information, he can be charged with a crime, and this is very important, whether or not he was under oath.”

Cevallos noted that others connected to the Trump campaign, like former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, have already pleaded guilty to making “false statements to authorities.”

“It is a very easy crime to make out and does not require an oath,” he detailed, “It essentially requires just a knowing intentional misleading or lying to an agent or Congress or obstructing some proceeding.”

Don Jr. has a track record of lying to cover up his father’s campaign activities. His apparent decision to do so while testifying in front of Congress has been exposed thanks to the recent Cohen revelation.

Now, Senators are demanding that he explain himself as the possibility of prosecution looms over the entire affair.

Their fringe ideas are reminiscent of another age, but the unapologetic men who espouse them are all on US election ballots in 2018.

Extremism and bigotry, even outright white supremacy and anti-Semitism, have found new lives in 21st century US politics and the era of President Donald Trump, beyond just the toxic rhetoric of a few little-known cranks.

They have received more exposure this year on the national stage than at any time in recent memory. And the mainly conservative proponents of hate running for office are proving to be a major embarrassment for the Republican Party.

Regardless of one’s political party, it is hard to imagine that the Trump administration will survive its self-inflicted crush of lies, ethical lapses and incompetence much longer. Chaos is no way to run a popsicle stand, let alone the United States government. Because this presidency may well implode, we need to start thinking about how to minimize the inevitable trauma on Trump supporters and America as a whole.

The reality is that, as a legal matter, both indictment and impeachment are fully on the table.

No law precludes indictment of a president, and the Constitution does not address whether it’s permissible. DOJ’s Office of Legal Counsel — which advises the White House on constitutional questions — issued a couple of opinions during the Nixon and Clinton administrations which concluded no. Leon Jaworski and Ken Starr — investigating Nixon and Clinton, respectively — answered yes. Special Counsel Robert Mueller could seek a revised opinion from the OLC to clarify, for example, whether an indictment during Trump’s tenure would be constitutional in order to toll the statute of limitations, with a trial taking place after the president leaves office.

**********************************************************

https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/29/politics/anthony-scaramucci-white-house-press-cnntv/index.html

President Donald Trump's former communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, said Sunday that he disagrees with the way the White House reprimanded a CNN reporter for asking questions during a photo op, adding that the decision to punish the reporter "probably came from the President."

"I disagree with it," Scaramucci told anchor Jake Tapper on CNN's "State of the Union." "What is the desired outcome, I guess that people don't ask you those questions? Well guess what? The First Amendment gives these reporters the right to do that. ... This is what all these reporters have been doing for 30 or 40 years."

https://www.rawstory.com/2018/07/florida-trump-supporters-say-theyd-believe-said-moon-purple/

Supporters of President Donald Trump lined up to see their hero in Tampa Tuesday and many of them confessed that their support extends beyond a vote.

The Herald-Tribune interviewed many supporters, who confessed that they place him first and foremost.

“Promises made, promises kept, that’s what this man does,” said Gene Huber, a 48-year-old car salesman. “If he says he’s going to turn the moon purple I believe him.”

Huber was clad in a t-shirt that had a photo on it of him hugging the president. The photo is from a 2016 rally, where Trump called Huber up on stage.

“He’s our messenger and we listen to him, that’s all we do,” Huber added. “I listen to our president and follow his agenda.”

Re: Trump Impeachment - 08/01/18 03:15 AM

http://politicaledu.org/2016/12/30/vichy-republicans/

Republican elected officials claim to be leaders. They claim to believe in American values and principles. They claim to believe in the betterment of our beloved country. They claim, above all, to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.

So, when an authoritarian-minded, conning fraudster, demagogic charlatan whose cult of personality and policy beliefs (insofar as he actually holds coherent policies) define him as a proto-fascist, rose to power, what did these alleged leaders do?

The people charged with protecting and promoting our collective interests cowered in fear, unable to muster the courage needed to confront the short-fingered vulgarian. Republican officials allowed, condoned, encouraged, and empowered the very figure our Founding Fathers warned could create a constitutional crisis or otherwise destroy our Republic. The Republic for which the GOP leaders claim to stand.

Trump’s Reich – from his blatantly anti-Semitic language that has motivated and mainstreamed neo-Nazis to his belligerent rhetoric towards Muslims – has turned once respectable elected officials into Vichy Republicans acting as puppets controlled by the strongman. They may claim independence from the Fuhrer and argue they will effectively control his agenda, but what in their utter and complete acquiescence to his rise makes us believe their statements of legislative control?

These pawns of the Fuhrer had their opportunity to take on their party’s cancer before he became its central node. But instead they watched in denial, claiming repeatedly that he simply could not and would not win. Except they did nothing to ensure their prophecy came true. The Vichy Republicans let their organization get overrun by a man with values antithetical to the Constitution. They let what could have been the mischief of a small faction become a major force in American politics who know-nothing nativist mischief will continue to hound our politics and nation for years to come.

Vichy Republicans overlooked the labelling of an entire subset of people as rapists. They issued hollow statements when the Fuhrer announced that his administration would ban all Muslims from entering the country. And while the condemned the Cheeto Jesus’ assertion that a judge’s ethnicity meant he could not do his job, the Vichy Republicans still vowed to support, vote for, and campaign with the nominee. Actions have always spoken louder than words and these Vichy Republicans made clear that while our Founders decried the electoral appeal of demagogues, defying one and risking electoral backlash simply would not be a high priority.

And so these Vichy Republicans have abandoned the principles of their party and the values of our country. They succumbed in terror to an existential threat to the Republic. They have no ideology except that of self-preservation. They are puppets of an ignoramus Fuhrer.

Fascism doesn’t come to America solely from a family aspiring towards a First Reich. It comes through the sheer cowardice of anointed leaders; it comes from their utter and total willingness to accept a man whose ideas they have labelled as un-American and unconstitutional. It comes from leaders who put preservation over betterment of the country. Vichy Republicans are but enablers, not men and women of principle and respectability.

SAN FRANCISCO — President Trump can thank Vladimir Putin for his victory over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, a former special agent at the Federal Bureau of Investigation told the Yahoo News podcast “Bots & Ballots.”

Asked point-blank if Russian hacking and disinformation helped elect Trump to the presidency, Clint Watts, who tracked the online activities of extremist groups like al-Qaida and the Islamic State group for the FBI in the run-up to the 2016 election, was resolute.

“Yes. I think just alone the hacking, particularly of the DNC and the time to release by WikiLeaks and DCLeaks and others of hacked materials offset the media narrative,” Watts, who has been an outspoken critic of the current president, told “Bots & Ballots” host Grant Burningham. “If you go back to the infamous ‘Access Hollywood’ tape of Donald Trump, it was immediately followed by the release, within an hour I believe, of hacked emails to try and distract from that narrative, and to essentially inundate that media space with other coverage.”

A former Watergate prosecutor late Wednesday criticized President Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani over his explanation that Trump was merely issuing an "opinion" when he called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end the special counsel probe.

"I think it’s a very weak defense," assistant Watergate special prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks said on MSNBC's "The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell."


"It is a question for the jury as to whether 'should' is an order or just an opinion. And I think when presented to a jury, they would find in the context of all of the other tweets that the president has done and all the other actions he has taken, including the firing of [former FBI Director] James Comey, that they would find the word 'should' was an order."

Wine-Banks argued that Trump's tweet on Wednesday calling for Sessions to immediately end the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election was sent with the intention that Sessions obey it and that Trump has "undermined" the probe from the beginning.

Sessions, who previously served as an adviser to the Trump campaign, recused himself from probes involving Russia last year. Sessions's recusal left his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, as the highest-ranking Justice Department official overseeing the probe. Rosenstein then appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel after Trump fired Comey.

"He has polluted any possible impact on a potential jury in any case because of what he is saying," Wine-Banks argued of Trump on MSNBC.

How Trump’s ‘nightmare’ scenario will unfold if Democrats take either chamber of Congress in November

Martin Cizmar MARTIN CIZMAR
04 AUG 2018 AT 18:42 ETemocrats are angry.

But without control of any branch of the federal government, there’s not much they can do about it.

That could all change in November, if Democrats take control of either house of Congress, writes the Washington Post.

The reason? Subpoena power.

Democrats have a long list of questions and document requests to file against the White House, various cabinet departments and businesses tied to President Trump. But if they don’t control the committee, all they can do is complain and shame their Republican colleagues.

“So far those requests have mostly been ignored by the Republican majorities in the House and Senate. But if Democrats seize committee gavels, they would regain a plethora of tools to probe Trump over the next two years,” the Post writes.

Bush-era Republican consultant Scott Jennings said that if Democrats control committees things will change in a hurry.

“There is a never-ending stream of outrage,” said Jennings. “The only difference is, now all of their outrage is directed at Twitter. But when you give somebody a gavel, they can actually hurt you.”

Trump's lifelong strategy has been to run out the clock on prosecution, moving from one scheme to the next. He operated like that for 40 years as a private citizen and does the same as POTUS abusing exec powers. This is why it was crucial for officials to act early. They didn't.

Setting up the meeting with the Russian lawyer was illegal.

That’s why they all lied about it so much, because it was illegal.

In a move aimed to protect President Trump from further incriminating himself, the White House announced on Monday that the president would not take any questions after he admitted on Twitter that his son may have colluded with Russians during the 2016 campaign.

Trump had originally claimed that the infamous meeting had been “about adoptions.” But in a Sunday tweet, the president admitted that the purpose of the meeting had been to get damaging information about Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee.

On Monday, NBC’s Peter Alexander reported that the White House had issued a “lid” on presidential travel and questions from the press.

JUST IN: White House announces a travel/photo lid, which means no public appearances by Trump today as new questions swirl around that 2016 Trump Tower meeting to get dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Three months out, President Trump and his Republican Party face grim prospects in midterm elections – with good reasons to fear they'll get grimmer.

Strategists in both parties now consider Democrats likely to gain the 23 seats they need to reclaim a majority in the House of Representatives. That would let Democrats roadblock Trump's legislative agenda, launch oversight investigations and explore impeachment proceedings.

The Senate outlook remains in greater doubt as the parties wage even-money battles in eight states, most of them Trump-friendly. But no one dismisses Democrats' opportunity to gain the two seats they need for control, which would give them veto power over White House appointments to the Cabinet and courts.

Donald Trump’s base starts to erode as he digs himself deeper and deeper into trouble

Heather Digby Parton, Salon HEATHER DIGBY PARTON,
AUG 2018 AT 10:11 ET

This past weekend, President Donald Trump tweeted a confession to the world that his top campaign operatives, Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner. had knowingly met with emissaries of the Russian government to receive information on his opponent, which he characterized as perfectly legal and routine, while also insisting that he knew nothing about it.

In a previous era, this would have been a shocking development that would likely lead to impeachment. Regardless of the legality (and plenty of experts say it was indeed illegal) it was certainly unethical and unpatriotic.

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/lindsey-graham-democrats-house_us_5b6bb745e4b0530743c6e29e

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) warned Wednesday that Democrats, riding a blue wave, could pick up nearly a dozen more seats than they need to take control of the House of Representatives in November.

“There’s a real likelihood that they not only win the House, but they win it by 10 or 12 more seats than they need,” Graham told The New York Times. “We’re bleeding among women and the enthusiasm factor for Democrats is worth 7 or 8 points, and sometimes more.”

The lawmaker’s comments come just a day after a close special election in Ohio for the state’s 12th Congressional District. President Donald Trump won the seat by 11 points in 2016, but Tuesday’s race was too close to call, with just 1,754 votes separating Troy Balderson (R) and Danny O’Connor (D).

Trump's campaign has spent nearly $100,000 of donor money to pay legal bills to the firm representing Jared Kushner.

Jared's estimated net worth is more than $300 million.

How is this even legal?

The big story on the first day of the new Congress was Rep. Rashida Tlaib, a newly elected Michigan Democrat, declaring at an event in Washington, DC, that she was going to “impeach the motherf” — the “motherf” in this case being President Donald Trump.

But shortly before Tlaib’s pronouncement, a pair of Democratic members of Congress, Brad Sherman of California and Al Green of Texas filed actual impeachment articles against Trump. Sherman, who has been in Congress since 1997, filed a similar resolution in 2017, but Republicans controlled the House at that time, so the move felt more performative than anything else.

https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/13/politics/paul-manafort-robert-mueller/index.html

Washington (CNN)Paul Manafort "intentionally" lied to special counsel Robert Mueller's office, breaking the plea agreement that made him the star cooperator in the Russia probe, a federal judge found on Wednesday.

Manafort "made multiple false statements to the FBI, the OSC and the grand jury concerning matters that were material to the investigation," including his contacts with his Russian associate during the campaign and later, Judge Amy Berman Jackson wrote on Wednesday.

Jackson's ruling is another stunning turn in Mueller's efforts to uncover Russian interference in the 2016 election, as the first man the special counsel indicted then pursued as a potential cooperator for a year sees the end of any benefits he tried to gain through a guilty plea.
Manafort was convicted of various financial crimes in August, and then cut the deal to plead guilty to two charges of conspiracy and witness tampering in September.

In all, Jackson determined Manafort intentionally lied about $125,000 he received for the legal bills, about another unnamed Justice Department criminal investigation and about his interactions with his longtime Russian associate Konstantin Kilimnik while he was campaign chairman and later.

Jackson noted twice in her order that two of the topics Paul Manafort lied about, Kilimnik and payments he received for his legal bills were "material to the investigation."
Manafort is still bound by what he agreed to in the plea, so he will not be able to retract his guilty pleas. But the finding frees Mueller's office from its contractual obligations in the plea, like asking for a reduced sentence for him because of his cooperation.
Mueller spokesman Peter Carr declined to comment.

A few weeks ago, Americans got a sneak peek at what it will look like if Congress decides to impeach President Donald Trump. On Jan. 18, BuzzFeed News published a report alleging that Trump had ordered his fixer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about their efforts during the 2016 presidential campaign to secure Russian government approval to build a Trump Tower Moscow.

Congressional Democrats pounced on the allegation that the president had suborned perjury. It was evidence of “obstruction of justice,” a “high crime” and an impeachable offense, Democrats tweeted. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) promised to investigate.

Then, special counsel Robert Mueller disputed the report. (BuzzFeed stands by its reporting.)

Mueller’s intervention doused the latest excitement. But Democrats’ rapid-fire response revealed that they sense they’re heading toward an inevitable reckoning with this president.

“Every day it becomes more and more difficult to say we’re not interested in impeachment,” said one Democratic member of Congress.

https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/14/politics/andrew-mccabe-obstruction-of-justice/index.html

Washington (CNN)Former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe said he ordered an investigation into whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice as a way to preserve ongoing inquiries into Russian election meddling in case there was an effort to terminate them.

"I wanted to make sure that our case was on solid ground and if somebody came in behind me and closed it and tried to walk away from it, they would not be able to do that without creating a record of why they made that decision," McCabe told Scott Pelley on "CBS This Morning" in an interview that aired Thursday.

McCabe also confirmed for the first time publicly that there were high-level discussions at the Justice Department about recruiting Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office in the aftermath of Comey's firing and speculating about which Cabinet members could be on board with the idea.

Incapacitation. He has no idea what he is doing.

Removal. He needs to be removed for the good of the country.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld said on Friday that he is exploring a challenge to President Donald Trump for the Republican nomination in 2020.

“Our president is simply too unstable to carry out the duties of the highest executive office in the land,” Weld said as he announced the launch of an exploratory committee at Politics & Eggs in Bedford, N.H. The breakfast program is considered a must for 2020 hopefuls in the early-voting state.

“I'm here because I think our country is in grave peril and I cannot sit any longer quietly on the sidelines,” Weld added. “We have a president who openly praises and encourages despotic and authoritarian leaders abroad while going out of his way seemingly to insult and even humiliate our Democratic allies.”

Weld's most recent foray into politics was a 2016 run for vice president on the Libertarian ticket alongside former presidential candidate and New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson. By jumping in as the first Republican to challenge Trump's reelection, Weld is likely to draw attention. The former governor currently works at ML Strategies, and took a leave from the Boston-based consulting firm in 2016 to run alongside Johnson.

At the Libertarian Party's 2016 convention, Weld said he was a "Libertarian for life." He continued courting Libertarian groups after November, but appears to have done an about-face for 2020. Leading up to Friday's announcement, there was some speculation as to whether Weld would run as a Republican or a Libertarian. Just a week ago, Weld registered as a Republican, CommonWealth Magazine first reported.

How Mitch McConnell Enables Trump
He’s not an institutionalist. He’s the man who surrendered the Senate to the president.


Among the casualties of President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency to build his border wall is the reputation of the majority leader Mitch McConnell as a Senate institutionalist. The evidence of the last few days has confirmed, if there were still any doubt, that he is no such thing.

First, he helped prolong the longest government shutdown in American history by insisting that the Senate would act only with explicit approval from the president. Now Mr. McConnell has fully acquiesced in President Trump’s power grab by supporting an emergency declaration, which he opposed just weeks before, aimed at addressing a crisis that Senate Republicans know does not exist.

Last week, Mr. McConnell had a choice. He didn’t have to acquiesce to the emergency declaration — he could have asserted the Senate’s independence at a critical time by passing the spending bill without validating Mr. Trump’s emergency declaration. If that prompted a veto, Mr. McConnell could have overridden it. That would be real leadership, and a clear assertion of the Senate’s independence. Instead, he meekly acquiesced in another presidential power grab.

In the months ahead, our institutions are likely to be tested as rarely before. Under a strong leader, the Senate could provide a critical counterweight to an out-of-control executive. Instead, we have a man who will put his self-interest first, every single time. We should enter this chapter with clarity and finally see Mr. McConnell for what he is. He’s not an institutionalist. He is the man who surrendered the Senate to Donald Trump.

WASHINGTON — As federal prosecutors in Manhattan gathered evidence late last year about President Trump’s role in silencing women with hush payments during the 2016 campaign, Mr. Trump called Matthew G. Whitaker, his newly installed attorney general, with a question. He asked whether Geoffrey S. Berman, the United States attorney for the Southern District of New York and a Trump ally, could be put in charge of the widening investigation, according to several American officials with direct knowledge of the call.

Mr. Whitaker, who had privately told associates that part of his role at the Justice Department was to “jump on a grenade” for the president, knew he could not put Mr. Berman in charge, since Mr. Berman had already recused himself from the investigation. The president soon soured on Mr. Whitaker, as he often does with his aides, and complained about his inability to pull levers at the Justice Department that could make the president’s many legal problems go away.

Trying to install a perceived loyalist atop a widening inquiry is a familiar tactic for Mr. Trump, who has been struggling to beat back the investigations that have consumed his presidency. His efforts have exposed him to accusations of obstruction of justice as Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel, finishes his work investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election.


An examination by The New York Times reveals the extent of an even more sustained, more secretive assault by Mr. Trump on the machinery of federal law enforcement.

The story of Mr. Trump’s attempts to defang the investigations has been voluminously covered in the news media, to such a degree that many Americans have lost track of how unusual his behavior is. But fusing the strands reveals an extraordinary story of a president who has attacked the law enforcement apparatus of his own government like no other president in history, and who has turned the effort into an obsession.

His efforts have exposed him to accusations of obstruction of justice as Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel, finishes his work investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Mr. Trump’s public war on the inquiry has gone on long enough that it is no longer shocking. Mr. Trump rages almost daily to his 58 million Twitter followers that Mr. Mueller is on a “witch hunt” and has adopted the language of Mafia bosses by calling those who cooperate with the special counsel “rats.” His lawyer talks openly about a strategy to smear and discredit the special counsel investigation. The president’s allies in Congress and the conservative media warn of an insidious plot inside the Justice Department and the F.B.I. to subvert a democratically elected president.

An examination by The New York Times reveals the extent of an even more sustained, more secretive assault by Mr. Trump on the machinery of federal law enforcement. Interviews with dozens of current and former government officials and others close to Mr. Trump, as well as a review of confidential White House documents, reveal numerous unreported episodes in a two-year drama.

White House lawyers wrote a confidential memo expressing concern about the president’s staff peddling misleading information in public about the firing of Michael T. Flynn, the Trump administration’s first national security adviser. Mr. Trump had private conversations with Republican lawmakers about a campaign to attack the Mueller investigation. And, there was the episode when he asked his attorney general about putting Mr. Berman in charge of the Manhattan investigation.

Mr. Whitaker, who earlier this month told a congressional committee that Mr. Trump had never pressured him over the various investigations, is now under scrutiny by House Democrats for possible perjury.

A Justice Department spokeswoman said that the White House had not asked Mr. Whitaker to interfere in the investigations. “Under oath to the House Judiciary Committee, then Acting Attorney General Whitaker stated that ‘at no time has the White House asked for nor have I provided any promises or commitments concerning the special counsel’s investigation or any other investigation,’” said the spokeswoman, Kerri Kupec. “Mr. Whitaker stands by his testimony.”

The White House declined to comment for this article.

The story of Mr. Trump’s attempts to defang the investigations has been voluminously covered in the news media, to such a degree that many Americans have lost track of how unusual his behavior is.

Trump Has Publicly Attacked the Russia Investigation More Than 1,100 Times

President Trump has publicly criticized dozens of people and groups related to federal inquiries into contacts between his campaign and Russia, according to a New York Times analysis of nearly every public statement or attack on Twitter that he has made while in office.

Source: Factba.se, a service of FactSquaredBy Karen Yourish and Larry Buchanan. Additional work by K.K. Rebecca Lai and Kevin Quealy
It is a public relations strategy as much as a legal strategy — a campaign to create a narrative of a president hounded by his “deep state” foes. The new Democratic majority in the House, and the prospect of a wave of investigations on Capitol Hill this year, will test whether the strategy shores up Mr. Trump’s political support or puts his presidency in greater peril. The president has spent much of his time venting publicly about there being “no collusion” with Russia before the 2016 election, which has diverted attention from a growing body of evidence that he has tried to impede the various investigations.

Julie O’Sullivan, a criminal law professor at Georgetown University, said she believed there was ample public evidence that Mr. Trump had the “corrupt intent” to try to derail the Mueller investigation, the legal standard for an obstruction of justice case.

But this is far from a routine criminal investigation, she said, and Mr. Mueller will have to make judgments about the impact on the country of making a criminal case against the president. Democrats in the House have said they will wait for Mr. Mueller to finish his work before making a decision about whether the president’s behavior warrants impeachment.

In addition to the Mueller investigation, there are at least two other federal inquiries that touch the president and his advisers — the Manhattan investigation focused on the hush money payments made by Mr. Trump’s lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, and an inquiry examining the flow of foreign money to the Trump inaugural committee.

The president’s defenders counter that most of Mr. Trump’s actions under scrutiny fall under his authority as the head of the executive branch. They argue that the Constitution gives the president sweeping powers to hire and fire, to start and stop law enforcement proceedings, and to grant presidential pardons to friends and allies. A sitting American president cannot be indicted, according to current Justice Department policy.

Mr. Trump’s lawyers add this novel response: the president has been public about his disdain for the Mueller investigation and other federal inquiries, so he is hardly engaged in a conspiracy. He fired one F.B.I. director and considered firing his replacement. He humiliated his first attorney general for being unable to “control” the Russia investigation and installed a replacement, Mr. Whitaker, who has told people he believed his job was to protect the president. But that, they say, is Donald Trump being Donald Trump.

Nancy Pelosi to Europe: Trump is not the boss.


Pelosi said that one European colleague had asked why the House of Representatives had only recently adopted a resolution in support of NATO. She said that she explained it is because she and the Democrats had only retaken control of the majority at the start of the year.

"I said because we just got the majority and then we can control, we can manage what goes on to the floor," Pelosi said. "But once the Republican colleagues had the opportunity to vote on this, H.R. 676 NATO Support Act — what was it? 357 to 22 Noes. I think that that sends a very clear message."

Pelosi added, "I don't think that there's any difference between Democrats and Republicans on our relationship with NATO. This is not partisan in any way."

‘There is a chance Vladimir Putin is controlling the White House’: National security expert
Tana Ganeva TANA GANEVA
19 FEB 2019 AT 12:09 ET

On Tuesday, former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe acknowledged that he believed President Donald Trump posed a threat to the United States. After right-wing pundits accused McCabe of treason and attempting to wage a coup, he noted that his investigation had followed legal protocol and that Congress had been aware of the probe.

On CNN Tuesday, national security expert Samantha Vinograd wondered if the investigation is still ongoing and what that could mean for potential Russian interference in US policy.

“Is that investigation still ongoing? McCabe has said that the President’s moves to undercut investigations, to believe Vladimir Putin over his own intelligence officials, to make personnel decisions based on Russia related matters, all led to this investigation,” Vinograd observed.

“McCabe would have laid that out before the Gang of Eight. But just in the past few days, the counterintelligence red flags are flying a lot higher than they did arguably than when this investigation was first launched,” she pointed out.

“And that this investigation is continuing and there is still a chance that Vladimir Putin is controlling the White House.

Jessica Denson, a former Trump campaign official who is suing to have the nondisclosure agreement she signed voided so she can talk publicly about abuse she received, on Friday delivered a blistering denunciation of the man she once believed should be the leader of the free world.

When asked by CNN’s Alisyn Camerota what she was hoping to accomplish with her lawsuit to overturn her NDA, Denson did not hold back on slamming the culture of corruption that surrounds President Donald Trump.

“These NDAs are extremely dangerous,” she said. “I think that we are in a very dangerous time in our country and I think we need all hands on deck to confront the oppression and the lies that are coming out of [the man] who is supposed to be the leader of the free world.”

She then said that Trump supporters should be the angriest people at all of the promises the president has broken to bring ethics back to Washington, D.C.

“I think the supporters of this campaign should be among the most outraged, that they have been taken for fools and used,” she said. “These NDAs say that someone who signed them will have a lifetime of allegiance to everything related to Trump. That if they dare to do anything but praise and be a sycophant for this president, that their very livelihood will be threatened. This is un-American, this is unconstitutional.”

It is about to get real for Donald Trump. It is mindblowing that this president and his administration are so corrupt that there be letters sent to 60 different individuals and entities related to obstruction of justice, abuse of power, and corruption. Trump’s administration and associates are completely unprepared for what is about to hit them.

This is an investigation of the size and scope of which may have never been seen before. Not even Watergate covered this much ground.

Does this mean that he is admitting to such, or that he simply doesn't think his base cares if he's a fraudster?

Michael Cohen’s Testimony Is the First Hearing in President Trump’s Impeachment

Proving it remains the obstacle. The scale of Cohen’s accusations are so vast that it is not tenable for Trump’s defenders to simply brush them aside. Instead, they are attacking him as an untrustworthy liar — a “convicted felon who’s been lying,” in the words of Donald Trump Jr.

This counterattack proves much less than Trump seems to think it does. Busting up a criminal organization usually requires the cooperation of some of its members, who, by definition, are also criminals. Federal prosecutors have publicly vouched for their belief that Cohen has turned the page on his criminal history and is coming clean. Cohen’s testimony is “credible and consistent with other evidence obtained in the SCO’s ongoing investigation,” reports his sentencing memorandum. “He has told the truth,” said Jeannie Rhee, one of Mueller’s prosecutors. Cohen has backed up some of his allegations against Trump with physical evidence, such as signed checks.

Of course, the charges to which Cohen has pled guilty are serious ones. He lied to protect Donald Trump. This is the same crime President Trump and his son have also apparently committed, a fact that rather complicates their attempt to present Cohen’s lies as fatally disqualifying to his credibility.

In any case, the depth and breadth of credible allegations against the president are now on a scale at which it will not do to let them go without further investigation. Regardless of whatever additional evidence Mueller finds, Congress will surely start impeachment hearings to get to the bottom of it.

MAR 7, 2019

Special Counsel Robert Mueller will soon send his report to Attorney General William Barr. Few topics may be more relevant to our democracy than what the report says. There may be appropriate reasons to redact limited portions of it, recognizing that only the congressional intelligence committees ordinarily receive the most sensitive classified information. But the rest should be released to Congress and the American public so that they can debate the consequences, from protection of our national security to legal and political accountability for public officials.

1/ Whatever you think VP Dick Cheney was to President George W. Bush, take that, make it 3 times as sinister, make Bush 10 times more sociopathic and a devout criminal, and make Cheney stupid, venal, and entirely dismissive of our rule of law and you get what Kushner is to Trump.

2/ Kushner is going to get us into a *devastating* war with Iran. Jared, singlehandedly. Jared, to make money for himself. I'll say now that Jared more richly deserves to be in prison for the rest of his life than Manafort, and Manafort richly deserves it. That's how bad this is.

3/ I'm wondering today more than I ever have before whether Special Counsel Robert Mueller has spoken to one man: Rex Tillerson. For all that Tillerson presented a danger of a corrupt detente between Trump and Putin, I think he knows *now* exactly how dangerous Jared Kushner is.

Seth Abramson

4/ Don't believe anything you hear from Kushner's attorney or from Kushner. *Ever*. The latter will always be lying to you, and the former will either be lying to you or will have been lied to by his client. I don't know if Mueller can save us from this particular danger or not.

5/ Whether you realize it or not, Kushner having top secret security clearance is *the* issue in American politics right now, as Trump circumventing our intelligence community to give his son-in-law that access is the shibboleth that made the current danger to America *possible*.

Seth Abramson

6/ Our foreign policy is totally off the rails in a way that is dangerous, and the sole reason for this is the Kushner-Trump axis. Our values have been betrayed in ways that we may shortly feel so keenly our heads will spin. We need whistleblowers to blow their whistles now. /end

Seth Abramson

PS/ The extent to which you think that Jared Kushner does or does not keep things from his wife is precisely the extent to which you think that Ivanka Trump is complicit in covert actions that should, if there's any justice, put Jared Kushner in prison for a very, very long time.

Abigail Disney, heiress to The Walt Disney Company, railed against CEOs collecting too much pay and is demanding Americans start taxing the wealthy.

The granddaughter of Roy Disney, who-founded the namesake company alongside his brother Walt, told CNBC's "Squawk Box" Thursday "Jesus Christ himself isn't worth 500 times his median workers' pay." Disney, 59, took shots at current Disney CEO Bob Iger, who recently agreed to a new payment contract that reduced his maximum potential yearly pay to a mere $13.5 million. She is a longtime critic of U.S. income equality, particularly between corporate executives and average workers, and last month signed onto a New York "millionaires tax" proposal.

"If your CEO salary is at the 700, 600, 500 times your median workers' pay, there is nobody on Earth, Jesus Christ himself isn't worth 500 times his median workers' pay," the heiress and filmmaker told CNBC Thursday. "CEOs in general are paid far too much."

A group of about 50 New York State millionaires, according to the Associated Press, have sent an open letter to Governor Andrew Cuomo and “legislative leaders” supporting higher taxes for the wealthy to fund programs to address income inequality and infrastructure investment. The group is backing a tax policy proposal from the Fiscal Policy Institute, a New York-based liberal think tank.

Recently, a small, but vocal number of wealthy people — including such notable billionaires as Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Carl Icahn, and Charles Koch —have publicly raised concern about growing income inequality. Some have warned against creating a permanent underclass and indulging in welfare for the rich.

The signers of the letter for New York legislators include Abigail Disney, filmmaker and granddaughter of Walt Disney Company co-founder Roy Disney, fourth-generation Rockefeller family member Steven Rockefeller, At-a-Glance calendar developer and leveraged buyout pioneer Lewis Cullman, media private equality fund managing partner Leo Hindery, Jr., and Peter Strugatz, an early investor in Stonyfield Farm Yogurt and Zipcar.

In light of the reported Trump plan to make America’s longtime allies pay what amounts to protection money, this is an important moment to revisit the resignation in protest last December of Defense Secretary James Mattis.

http://www.tampabay.com/florida/2019/03/..._medium=twitter

A Chinese-American massage-parlor entrepreneur arranged for a group of Chinese business executives to attend a paid fundraiser for President Donald Trump in New York City at the end of 2017, according to a source who was present at the event.

Cindy Yang, whose family owns a chain of South Florida day spas where prostitution is said to have taken place, also runs a Florida-based consulting business called GY US Investments that promises to introduce Chinese investors into the president’s orbit.

Yang was present at the Dec. 2, 2017, fundraiser, held at Cipriani restaurant in Manhattan, according to a photograph that circulated in Chinese-language media at the time. The source, who asked for anonymity to discuss the private fundraiser, said Yang identified herself as an official at the National Committee of Asian American Republicans, a Washington, D.C.-based political action committee founded in the summer of 2016.


In the 11 days before the event, Yang gave $5,400 to Trump’s campaign and $23,500 to the Trump Victory political action committee, according to a Miami Herald analysis of federal political contributions. The 45 year old, a naturalized American citizen, also claimed to have arranged the presence of a large group of business people from mainland China.

“They’re all my guests,” she told the source.

Foreign visitors may attend fundraisers as long as they don’t pay their own entry. But only citizens and permanent residents are allowed to donate to U.S. political campaigns. It would be illegal for foreign nationals to reimburse a U.S. citizen for paying their way into a fundraiser. Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has been examining whether money from abroad influenced the 2016 election. There is no evidence that Yang or her businesses are part of that investigation.

Cindy Yang (far left) attended a fundraiser for President Donald Trump on Dec. 2, 2017 in New York City, along with her husband Zubin Gong (far right). She is said to have arranged the presence of a group of Chinese businessmen as well.

Yang is also noteworthy because she once owned what is now Orchids of Asia, the day spa in Jupiter where New England Patriots owner and billionaire Robert Kraft was charged with soliciting prostitution last month. Kraft’s bust is part of a wider law enforcement investigation into human trafficking at Asian-themed massage parlors in Florida. Yang says she sold that spa, which then operated under a different name, several years ago. She and the spas that remain registered to her family members have not been charged in that investigation.

She dominated the news Friday after the Herald published photos of her with Trump, as well as top Florida Republican politicians including Gov. Ron DeSantis and Sen. Rick Scott and conservative celebrities. She even snapped a selfie with Trump during a Super Bowl party at the president’s West Palm Beach golf club. Kraft’s Patriots won the game. (Shortly after the story was published, Yang took down the Facebook page where she had posted many of the photos and also the GY US Investments website.)

The photos raised questions about who can gain access to the president at his resorts and other private businesses, as well at official venues like fundraisers. A report by Mother Jones Saturday laid out in detail how Yang promised Chinese business people access to Trump.

In a brief interview with the Herald earlier in the week, Yang denied wrongdoing related to her spas. She did not return a call requesting comment Saturday. Neither did Cliff Zhonggang Li, who is listed as the executive director of the National Committee of Asian American Republicans, the political action committee where Yang said she works. Though the political action committee itself is small, Yang has contributed about 14 percent of its total funds in the 2016 and 2018 election cycles, donating about $1,150 and $4,400 respectively, according to nonprofit research group OpenSecrets. Most of the committee’s expenses are administrative, and the PAC has never given to a candidate or another committee, records show.

Reports in Chinese-language media said nearly 100 Chinese people attended the New York fundraiser in December 2017, out of roughly 400 total guests. The event was hosted by the Republican National Committee. Officials at Trump Victory and the RNC did not immediately respond to requests for comment Saturday.

The unusually heavy presence of foreign citizens at the New York event had been noted previously.

The Washington Post reported last year that members of the Chinese contingent were “guests” of an unnamed U.S. citizen donor. Yang and her family members have contributed tens of thousands of dollars to the president’s campaign and a Trump political action committee, with the donations starting in November 2017. Her husband, Zubin Gong, was also present at the New York fundraiser, according to the photograph.

The Chinese guests had “minimal exposure to President Trump,” a Republican Party official told the Post at the time.

“They attended an event with hundreds of individuals and took a photo from a photo line,” said the official, adding that all guests must be vetted at RNC events where the president is present.

The source who attended the party said the president joked that the Chinese guests got all the good seats and would be omnipresent at future events if his American friends in real estate didn’t start donating more. The source said admission started at $2,700, and photos with the president were offered for $10,000.

Since the New York event, Yang has advertised her ability to introduce Chinese investors to the president, his family and his advisers.


On the Chinese-language website for GY US Investments, Yang claimed to be hosting a “conference for international leadership” at Mar-a-Lago, the president’s private resort in Palm Beach, on March 30. The guest speaker is advertised as Elizabeth Trump Grau, the president’s sister. Trump Grau could not be reached.

“It is the first time for Chinese to play the leading role [at] Mar-a-Lago,” the website claimed.

The company was formally registered in Florida on Dec. 12, 2017, 10 days after the Trump fundraiser in New York. It describes its services as helping Chinese investors acquire businesses in the United States, file for patents and securing “Nobel Prize winners” to participate in their projects. It also says clients can take photos with President Trump, take part in “VIP activities” at Mar-a-Lago and have dinner at the White House. Yang has attended several events held by the White House’s Asian American and Pacific Islander Initiative in Washington D.C.

Yang’s consulting business and new-found political relevance were a far cry from her previous main line of work: Running a chain of Asian day spas in Palm Beach and Broward counties.

Online commenters on adult-themed and other websites have stated that spas owned by Yang and her family — which operate under the brand name Tokyo Day Spas — have offered sex. Allegations of prostitution at the spas have been reported to at least two local police agencies in South Florida, according to law enforcement records obtained by the Herald, although no charges appear to have been brought against Yang or the spas as a result of those tips.

President Donald Trump’s rhetoric about the Russia investigation might seem unprecedented, including his blistering attacks on investigators and pushback against the press. But history presents another strong example. More than 40 years ago, President Richard Nixon grappled with Watergate and hit many of the same points as the scandal unfolded.

In both cases, the President and his White House were enveloped by a sprawling Justice Department investigation. Both times, this led to the departure of senior officials, a slew of criminal charges against people close to the President, and allegations of a cover-up. Nixon and Trump both relished opportunities to proclaim their innocence and go after their opponents.

Fox News is a misogynist network. The men are lecherous.

O'Reilly was fired not for his words, but because his serial abuse was a liability.

House Oversight Committee chair Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) has requested information from two of President Donald Trump’s attorneys, according to an earlier NBC News report.

Sheri Dillon and Stefan Passantino, attorneys responsible for the president’s ethics and financial disclosures will have to decide if they’re prepared to go to jail for Trump, according to

Former federal prosecutor Joyce Vance said that it’s possible Trump would try to declare attorney-client privilege or executive privilege, but she doesn’t anticipate it would work. These lawyers would also come under the eye of state-regulators that license attorneys.

“I have been to this rodeo, and I know how it ends,” MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace said. “When you work in a White House under investigation by Congress, you hire a defense attorney, and you comply with every request for the reason Joyce just gave because sometimes you’re facing criminal exposure yourself. I think we’re entering a new phase where a lot of men and women will have to go home and talk to their families and look at their kids and decide if Donald Trump is worth going to jail for.”

Airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly. Pilots are no longer needed, but rather computer scientists from MIT. I see it all the time in many products. Always seeking to go one unnecessary step further, when often old and simpler is far better. Split second decisions are....

she suckered you right in. I am quite certain Trump will be impeached before his term is up when she knows there are enough Republican senators who will support him being kicked out of office. Just as there was with Nixon.
