Tea Pain @TeaPainUSA 34m

Two days ago Lindsey said, "We're done" with Mueller. Now they want him to come visit? The GOP has suddenly realized that Robert Mueller's testimony will blow this whole thing wide open so they must destroy him as soon as possible.

Stunned conservative host blasts Trump for not challenging Putin over ‘state-sponsored election terrorism


A conservative host on Friday was left stunned after President Donald Trump admitted that he had talked to Vladimir Putin about Robert Mueller’s investigation — but had not challenged the Russian president for meddling in U.S elections.

Todd Schnitt of Newsmax TV said on his show that it was clear Putin was not a friend of the United States.

“The president spent about an hour on the phone with Putin… he is as anti-American as it gets… Putin is essentially the head of state-sponsored election terrorism, you name it,” he said.

“I just don’t find a lot of comfort that the president did not talk about this with Putin,” Schnitt said. “Trump needs to tell Putin to knock it off.”

“The president sees all this intelligence — or has access to it — [showing] that they continue to interfere, and the president needs to tell Vladimir Putin to cut the crap and knock it off.”

Trump is giving Putin an ‘open invitation’ to hack the 2020 election: Former CIA operative


On Friday, former CIA operative Bob Baer slammed President Donald Trump for failing to condemn Russian hacking and warned that he has set the path for foreign intelligence to interfere with future US elections.

Trump spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin over the phone, and they briefly talked about the Mueller report but he failed to warn them about future interference.

“Did you tell him not to meddle in the next election?” a reporter asked Trump while in the Oval Office.

“We didn’t discuss that. Really, we didn’t discuss it. We discussed five or six things. We also went into great detail on various things,” Trump responded.

“This is the first time these two leaders have spoken since special counsel Robert Mueller concluded that Russia did, in fact, interfere in the 2016 election,” CNN host Brooke Baldwin said.

Baer said that Putin would most likely seek to hack the 2020 presidential election since he did not face any consequences.

“I think it is an open invitation for the Russians to meddle in 2020,” he said. “The fact that he didn’t bring it up, the fact that he didn’t warn Putin. This was the most damaging act of political sabotage which frankly has ever happened to this country and to talk about it as if it’s still a hoax and frame it as no collusion is completely ignoring what the Russians did.”

“If I were Vladimir Putin, and intended to disrupt the politics of this country, I would meddle in 2020 and he probably will.”

Doesn’t this confirm that he is in bed with the Russians and probably will ask for help getting him re-elected again.

Ned Price @nedprice 2h

The Kremlin's readout of the Trump-Putin call makes no mention of discussion of the Mueller report or collusion, but Trump's tweet says they discussed the "Russian hoax."

Remarkable that the American President is more intent on spreading Russian propaganda than Putin's Kremlin.

“President Trump’s latest position on the Mueller report is that it both totally exonerates him and is fatally flawed at its very core — because it doesn’t totally exonerate him.”

Ex-mob prosecutor says Trump’s talk with Putin was a ‘get your stories straight call’ like she used to hear on wiretaps


The former chief of the organized crime and racketeering unit at the U.S. Attorney’s office in the Southern District of New York explained on MSNBC Friday how President Donald Trump’s call with Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin reminded her of what she used to hear listening to mob wiretaps.

MSNBC legal analyst Mimi Rocah was interviewed on “Deadline: White House” with Nicolle Wallace.

“Official after official, when brought up to Capitol Hill, has bemoaned the fact there’s no top-down order to tell Russia to stay out of our democracy,” Wallace noted.

“There’s no order,” Rocah agreed. “He’s doing the opposite.”

“This phone call between Trump and Putin today reminded me of what we would call — when we were on wires of criminals and listening to their conversations and they didn’t know it — the ‘get your story straight call,'” Rocah replied. “They would do something, they didn’t know we were listening to them after whatever crime they just committed, they robbed a bank or whatever, then they’re on the phone, sort of talking, kind of sort of in code, but it’s a yeah, ‘when we went to the store earlier and I bought the milk,’ you know, they’re making their cover story, congratulating each other, patting each other on the back, saying ‘it’s all good, we made it, we didn’t get caught.’ That’s what this reminded me of.”

“If you look at the obstruction that Trump, I think, clearly committed, it was obstruction of the investigation into Russia, not just Trump, but into Russia’s

Just read the most surreal, stupid, scary headline of the year: Trump and Putin agree there was no collusion. And I want to scream and scream because none of this is normal, none of this is ok, none of this is right.

How can you have diplomacy with someone who never tells the truth?’: Trump’s North Korea diplomacy blasted as a ‘charade’


On Friday, the mother of slain U.S. student Otto Warmbier spoke critically of President Donald Trump’s efforts to broker peace with North Korea, according to the Washington Post.

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un’s regime is “absolute evil,” she said at a seminar with the conservative Hudson Institute, adding that “There’s a charade going on right now. It’s called diplomacy. How can you have diplomacy with someone who never tells the truth? I’m all for it. But I’m very skeptical. He lies, he lies, he lies — all for himself and his regime.”

Warmbier, a college student at the University of Virginia, was arrested by North Korean authorities for allegedly trying to steal a propaganda poster of Kim at his hotel while on a guided tour of the country in 2016. He was allegedly tortured by his captors, and was released back to the U.S. a year later in a vegetative state, dying at Cincinnati Medical Center without ever waking up.

Trump has drawn controversy for his lack of interest in pursuing international justice for the incident, as well as for a purported scheme his administration hatched to pay the North Korean government $2 million to secure his release.

I'm calling on the DOJ Inspector General to investigate whether the White House improperly ordered or pressured Barr to investigate the president's perceived enemies.

Barr refused to answer this under my questioning in the Senate Judiciary Committee. We need answers.

‘Avowed white supremacists’ pleaded guilty to conspiring to riot at fatal ‘Unite the Right’ rally in Charlottesville


On Friday, Benjamin Drake Daley and Michael Miselis pleaded guilty for their roles in the “Unit The Right” rally Charlottesville, Va, reported The Los Angeles Times.

They can face up to five years in prison. The two men belong to a white nationalist group called the Rise Above Movement. They were charged with conspiring to riot.

“Benjamin Drake Daley, a founder of the so-called Rise Above Movement, and Michael Miselis, a member who worked as an aerospace engineer for Northrop Grumman, entered their pleas in a Charlottesville courtroom. They will face up to five years in federal prison when they are sentenced in July,” the report said.

“These avowed white supremacists traveled to Charlottesville to incite and commit acts of violence,” Thomas Cullen, U.S. attorney for the Western District of Virginia, said in a statement. “Although the First Amendment protects an organization’s right to express abhorrent political views, it does not authorize senseless violence in furtherance of a political agenda.”

Senator Nadler moment ago: "If we don't stand up to [Trump] today, we risk forever losing the power to stand up to any president in the future. The system of not having a President as a dictator is very much at stake."

Congress arresting Bill Barr is the quickest move to get the Supreme Court to rein in Trump: Robert Reich


On Thursday, public policy professor and former Clinton Secretary of Labor Robert Reich explained on MSNBC’s “The Beat” why Congress should move to arrest Attorney General William Barr if he continues stonewalling the investigation and dodging subpoenas.

“This is a realistic threat, but let me say why this is an important threat,” said Reich. “Otherwise the Trump Administration can just run out the clock.”

In other words, Congress could decide, the House could decide, to hold the witness in contempt, which is criminal. And then it would just languish through the courts and because the Justice Department really runs the show, it could take another year and a half, and then the clock runs out,” Reich continued. “The way to expedite this issue up to the Supreme Court, and not let the Trump Administration run the clock, is to actually act on the constitutional authority that the House has.”

There is really no ambiguity about whether the House can arrest people in contempt, noted Reich.

“That constitutional authority [is] enshrined in a Supreme Court case called Jurney v. MacCracken, 1935,” said Reich. “You go look back at it. It’s clear that the House could actually do that … you have to force the Trump Administration to get an injunction in court, and that would be expedited, I expect, up to the Supreme Court.”

What @chrislhayes said: this is not about legal niceties. It's about power. Democrats are either going to use the power they have or they won't. Democrats will either "meet maximalism with maximalism," or they shy away and let Trump rule unchecked. There's no third lane.

Trump’s own White House revealed how the president failed in Putin call: Obama’s ambassador to Russia


Former Ambassador Michael McFaul explained how President Donald Trump failed in his Friday phone call with Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin.

The Stanford professor was interviewed on MSNBC’s “The 11th Hour” with guest-host Steve Kornacki.

“Michael McFaul, I wonder from the standpoint of Putin and folks around him in Russia how this conversation — at least as we now understand it — how they read it,” Kornacki said. “If this is something that the president initiated, they certainly know that the Mueller report came out recently. The president has this conversation, does not bring up this topic of election interference, what does that read as to Putin and folks in Moscow?”

“Great news,” McFaul replied.

“If you read their readout, number one initiated by us, so it is a good question why did we initiate the call? What was the objective of the call? But then when you read off the Russian side, they are putting down their markers about their policy,” he noted.

Prior to his Senate confirmation as ambassador, McFaul served in President Barack Obama’s White House as his senior Russia advisor. He explained how that experience informed his take on Trump’s call with Putin.

“Steve, I used to work at the White House for President Obama, I used to set up these phone calls with the Russians. We would write the readout of the call before the call happened, tweak it perhaps to state what our policy objectives were.

“So, for instance, if I were writing the readout, I would have said we talked about how Russia should not interfere in Venezuela. We talked about how Russia should withdraw their forces and their support for separatists in Ukraine. We talked about dire consequences if they intervene in our elections in 2020,” he explained.

“The president’s readout had none of that kind of language,” he noted.

Never before in history has any President deserved to be impeached more than Donald trump.

If he isn't impeached, they might as well remove that shit entirely from the Constitution, because it will have been proven WORTHLESS.

IMPEACH his criminal ass.
