You might have obstructed justice IF: you ask your former attorney to publicly declare that you didn’t obstruct and he responds, “No can do.”

WASHINGTON — White House officials asked at least twice in the past month for the key witness against President Trump in the Mueller report, Donald F. McGahn II, to say publicly that he never believed the president obstructed justice, according to two people briefed on the requests.

Early Saturday mornings are a great time to reflect.

I keep coming back to the same question over & over every weekend.

How the hell do these MAGA people make it through their daily lives with such ignorance?

The President is very obviously laying the groundwork to abuse his office in order to sic the power of the state on his political opponents. It's as corrupt as it gets.

Trump’s allies are willing to be held in contempt to keep Trump’s taxes secret until after the election: Former Mueller aide


On CNN Saturday, special counsel Robert Mueller’s former DOJ Special Assistant Michael Zeldin cut to the heart of why President Donald Trump and his GOP allies seem unconcerned by the threat of contempt of Congress as they block House attempts to obtain the president’s tax returns.

“It seems to me that they’ve made a decision that across the board … that all of these subpoenas for congressional oversight that they’re entitled to, they are going to stonewall,” said Zeldin. “That seems to be a strategy they have adopted. They seem to be willing to take the contempt citation.”

“They understand fully well that if there is litigation around contempt, it could be months and months and even years, and that advantages them,” Zeldin explained. “I think they believe the information is being sought will be damaging to their political and legal interests, and they have made a decision, if that’s the case, rather than give it up, we’ll stonewall and delay and hope the 2020 election comes and goes before anyone sees the documents.”

Trump ‘humiliated’ by tax return revelations and panicked they will cripple him in the 2020 election: report


According to CNN, President Donald Trump feels humiliated by the bombshell New York Times story revealing that he lost over a billion dollars in bad business deals between 1985 and 1994 and used the losses to avoid paying income tax for eight years.

Aides say that in private, he is expressing his determination to prove to his supporters that he is, in fact, a very good negotiator — and in particular, that if he does not, it would leave him vulnerable to former Vice President Joe Biden if he becomes the Democratic nominee for president.

Making matters worse for Trump, many of his foreign policy ambitions are stalled. China is refusing to budge on trade negotiations, North Korea is launching missiles in defiance of the administration’s pursuit of de-escalation, Venezuela’s embattled autocrat Nicolas Maduro is no closer to being toppled by the opposition, and Iran is defying their prior nuclear commitments after Trump moved to reimpose sanctions.

According to CNN, Trump is so desperate to prove himself that he even gave the Swiss government a phone number for them to pass along to Iran, and said “I’d like to see them call me.” And he is increasingly growing frustrated with the more hawkish members of his administration, like Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton, as he fears they may take his government to war and wreck any pretense that he has diplomatic skill.

Failing both at home and abroad, Trump evidently feels as though the image he has built for himself has come crashing down, and he is desperate to save his personal brand.

The former top FBI lawyer, James Baker, says he "became sick of all the BS" and stepped up today to debunk some of the conspiracies Trump is peddling. Many of the top FBI officials with key roles in the Russia investigation have now publicly rebuked Trump.

https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/10/politics/james-baker-brookings/index.html

The top lawyer at the FBI when the Russia investigation was started said Friday that the probe was opened for "lawful, legitimate reasons," and pushed back on conspiracies that President Donald Trump has spread about the origins of the investigation.

James Baker, the former FBI lawyer, said he felt compelled to speak out amid growing scrutiny of how the investigation started, concerns that have been stoked by Trump and Attorney General William Barr, who is conducting an internal review to see if there was any misconduct.


Almost all of the top FBI officials who oversaw the Russia investigation have now publicly spoken out against Trump, an extraordinary and unprecedented rebuke of a sitting president.

So let me get this straight, Trump starts a trade war with China that hurts farmers and like a socialist he pays them off. Except the payoff is with money borrowed from China on which we are paying interest....do I have that right?

Pro-lifers are the most hypocritical people on the planet. They care only about the fetus and don't give a shit about the baby, child, adult. And then, when the Republican's mistress gets preggers, well then abortion it is!

In under one hour this morning, Donald Trump retweeted 62 different tweets.

Because that's a totally normal thing for a sitting president to do.

NRA’s ‘mindboggling’ legal expenses are costing the cash-strapped organization $97,000 a day: leaked memos


On Saturday, The Daily Beast reported that documents posted online reveal the National Rifle Association is racking up a truly astonishing amount of legal fees as it faces down a number of serious controversies: over $24 million since last year to an outside lawyer named Bill Brewer, or about $97,000 a day.

The source of the documents appears to have been Oliver North, who was just ousted as president of the NRA following a heated civil war among its top leadership.

In a confidential memo included in the dump, North and fellow NRA official Richard Childress warned that “the Brewer invoices are draining NRA cash at mindboggling speed,” and “pose an existential threat to the financial stability of the NRA.”

The NRA is currently facing a number of problems, including allegations that top officials misused assets and brokered improper vending contracts with advertising agency and longtime partner Ackerman McQueen for their own personal enrichment — allegations that could put the organization at risk of losing its tax-exempt status.

The gun rights organization has also claimed in court filings that investigations and lawsuits by the state of New York threatened their ability to secure financial services.

Meanwhile they are dealing with the embarrassment of the ongoing prosecution of an admitted Russian agent who allegedly infiltrated their organization as a means of manipulating the Republican Party.
