Enjoy Fox's own Chris Wallace Reporting then... whistle

Mueller reportedly impanels grand jury in Russia probe.

The move is seen as a sign the investigation into election interference and possible collusion with the Trump campaign is heating up and entering a new phase. Reuters also reported that grand jury subpoenas have been issued in connection with the meeting Donald Trump Jr. had with a Russian lawyer and others last year:

I have never heard anyone say anything like this about a US president before. Even his strongest and most vocal opponents. This is the man who said he could shoot someone in the middle of 5th Avenue and not lose any supporters. If you pressed him on that statement, he would say of course I was joking. Someone wrote he jokes about the most inappropriate topics. Like when he said cops should rough up a little those they arrest. When law enforcement officials came out against this statement he said he was joking.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/bill-maher-donald-trump-apos-080951377.html

“Real Time” host Bill Maher revealed Friday how he thinks President Donald Trump is capable of ordering politically-motivated murders.

In the “Overtime” segment of his show, Maher asked his guests if they believed Russian President Vladimir Putin had ordered assassinations and whether Trump had it within himself to do the same.

Conservative activist Ralph Reed Jr. and GOP strategist Kristen Soltis Anderson both said they didn’t think Trump was capable. But Maher said he believed Trump was.

“Because I do. I think he loves dictators,” said the host. “Loves the way they behave, compliments them all the time.”

Bloomberg Businessweek journalist Joshua Green tried to change the topic to Trump’s treatment of special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating possible collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia in the 2016 election.

But Maher pressed CNN contributor Michael Weiss on the issue.

“Do I think he’s going to do extra-judicial assassinations? I think if he thought he could get away with it he would,” said Weiss. “But one thing that we’ve learned is the resiliency of American institutions has checked this guy tremendously.”

“That’s why he’s the man raging in the tower,” he added.

Remember Trump has called Putin a great leader. At least the Republicans in congress are standing up to Trump more all the time. I can't tell you how disgusted I am with Trump or I would be banned on here.

Russia's main opposition figure thinks there's a 50 percent chance he will end up dead for speaking out against President Vladimir Putin, a fate that has befallen many of the Kremlin's enemies in recent years.

Aside from firing Captain Mueller, there's little Donald Trump can do to shield himself, his family, his political appointees, his business associates and his campaign buddies from the grand jury's scrutiny. And it's not clear that Trump can fire Mueller easily under the current set-up. A pair of bipartisan bills currently introduced this week in the Senate would give the special counsel the right to challenge his firing in court. "Any effort to go after Mueller could be the beginning of the end of the Trump presidency unless Mueller did something wrong," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R.-S.C., told reporters.

Think of a grand jury as an insatiable maw and you begin to understand Mueller’s task and Trump’s terror. Mountains of phone records, business records, emails, and all manner of paperwork are likely to be subpoenaed by Mueller. Already, subpoenas covering the June 2016 meeting in Donald Jr.’s Trump Tower office have been issued, and orders for principals to give grand jury testimony will surely follow. While the orders can be challenged or narrowed, Trump's people will find no easy escape from the dragnet—whatever Mueller points his flashlight at will glow with grand-jury illumination. According to the Washington Post, Trump burned with fury when he learned that Mueller would have access to several years of his tax returns.

The Trump protest against the Russia investigation was typical, as he called it "fake" and "demeaning" at West Virginia campaign-style rally this week. Such tirades will earn him no reprieve. Grand juries don't return to port until they've filled the hatches with fresh catch. This wasn't Trump's only act of non-persuasion this week. He also took to Twitter to blame Congress for the United States' poor relationship with Russia after it passed a veto-proof sanctions measure. Would it be reading too much into the president's thinking to conclude from his tweet that he desires to collude in public with Putin but the fact that the damn House and Senate just won’t allow it has angered him to the point of tears?

Like Bill Clinton before him, Trump will be compelled to give testimony. He might want to start working on that honesty thing so the special counsel doesn't nail him on that perjury thing, like independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr did Clinton. He could use some practice on telling the truth. This week, the Washington Post proved him a liar not once but twice. Lie No. 1: You may recall that Trump denied—through his lawyers—any knowledge of the meeting his son, Donald Jr., took in June 2016 with Russians at Trump Tower. But then the Post reported that Trump dictated Junior's original public statement that the meeting was primarily about adoption. Lie No. 2: Remember how Trump tweeted back in February that, contrary to the reporting from the "FAKE NEWS media" (specifically the Washington Post), he had enjoyed a "very civil conversation" on the phone with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull? Another whopper, as this Post published this week transcripts of the Trump-Turnbull conversation that proved the call was just as uncivil as the Post previously reported.

Like a carnival come to town, Mueller's grand jury performance promises high entertainment value over the 12-to-24 months some expect in to run. Expect representatives from Trump White House to storm the cable news studios to heckle, browbeat and insult Mueller with the same vehemence that Clinton's loyalists dealt Starr. Expect four or five journalists to come out of the investigation with big book contracts. Since the jurors and prosecutors are sworn to silence, expect most of the noise about the investigation to come from the witnesses and their lawyers, who bear no legal obligation to keep mum. Expect journalists to case the federal courthouse looking for arriving witnesses—keeping an eye on the back doors for sneak entrances—in hopes of divining Mueller's direction.

And expect Mueller to deliver something big. Very big. This is, after all, his last great hunt.

Moron Alert: Maxine Waters Doesn't Believe Leaks Jeopardize National Security

Jennifer Van Laar

Perpetually offended Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) appeared on The View yesterday and opined on a number of topics (including a possible 2020 Presidential run), but stubbornly refused to admit there could possibly be any negative consequences arising from the steady stream of leaks, including transcripts of phone calls President Trump had with other heads of state.

Waters was asked if she was disturbed that confidential conversations with the leaders of Mexico and Australia were leaked. She replied:

"Not at all. I am so glad they're telling us what's going on.
"I need to hear these conversations. Unfortunately, this is his [Trump's] problem. He's in a White House where he's got people working for him that don't believe in what he's doing...."
When challenged that it could be a problem for the country if our president cannot have a candid conversation with another country, Waters said she didn't "see it that way at all" and dug in.

"Let me tell you something. Mexico is glad to have it leaked....Isn't it good that his supporters hear that [about Mexico not paying for the wall]?"
Rather than blaming leakers, Waters claims it's Trump's fault that things are being leaked and it's a failure of leadership. She even sees it as a call for Dems to "do something about" the "danger" she says Trump poses.

"The leadership starts at the top. It is this president that his own people don't have confidence in.
"They want us to do something.
"He's the danger, and they want us to do something about it."
Of course, Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar were adding comments of agreement. But let's look back at what they said about President Trump when he shared intel about ISIS with Russia, which is vastly different than illegally leaking confidential conversations to the press. Mere details from the perspective of these babes, because the real determining factor to them is if they can hurt Trump.

Joy Behar:

"I don't think that the people who created our government expected to have a blabbermouth in the White House."
Whoopi Goldberg:

"When you give people information that they would not normally have that you keep close to your vest and suddenly you're telling everybody, it endangers everyone."
And what did Maxine Waters think of information sharing - sharing that, as President, Trump had every right to do - then? She thought he should be impeached.

I copy and paste from many different news sources. Don't tell me you believe like Trump believes that the press is the enemy of the people? That is the saddest thing I know.

It says that Russia helped Trump get elected. We now know a whole lot of key Trump associates have business dealings with Russia. Mueller has got a lot of work to do but it will all come out now.

Copying fake news does not make it news. Leaked news from undisclosed sources makes for fake news.
