This is the GOP’s soft coup. Government is now filled with anti-government extremists who fundamentally don’t believe in the institution they ran to uphold:

Carl Bernstein busts Bill Barr for acting like Trump’s attack dog lawyer: ‘Trump said he wanted his Roy Cohn — he’s got him now’


Recalling that report on Sunday, Bernstein explained Trump now has a Roy Cohn in his current attorney general.

“We find ourselves in this situation, right now, because there is an on going coverup by the president of the United States,” Bernstein explained. “Whether that constitutes a violation of law, whether he is a criminal or not, that’s for down the road but right now it’s obvious to anyone that watches, anyone who looks at the facts, reads the Mueller report — the obstruction part particularly — we are in the midst of a continued coverup by the president, aided abetted by the Attorney general of the United States.”

“Trump said he wanted his Roy Cohn, he’s got him now in the attorney general,” Bernstein added.

Bernstein described the crisis as “systemic,” not constitutional, arguing Trump’s conduct is “challenging whether our institutions are able to function in this country to deal with the president of the United States who is unique in our history, who has nothing but contempt for democratic tradition and the rule of law.”

“So really where the rubber is going to meet the road is going to be the Supreme Court of the United States and Chief Justice Roberts has got his table being set for him in a way that may have an awful lot to do with the future of American democracy,” Bernstein added.

George Conway calls Trump a 'malignant narcissist' and says he committed 'the ultimate high crime'


George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, lashed out at President Trump Sunday for his view of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation as "purely in terms of your own ego," adding that the president "should pay with your office."

"Think of it," Conway, an outspoken critic of President Trump, started in a lengthy Twitter thread. “The Russia investigation was a legitimate investigation, with a legitimate basis, into how a hostile foreign power tried to interfere with and undermine our democracy. It was in the best interests of the nation — in the interests of all Americans, no matter who they voted for — that this investigation be allowed to proceed to its rightful conclusion, without improper attempts to obstruct it, if only so that we could all know what really happened and take steps to see that it never happens again.”

Conway blamed Trump’s take on the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election on his being “a malignant narcissist — a person with both narcissistic and antisocial personality disorders,” a diagnosis he has repeatedly applied to his wife's boss.

“Instead of complying with your oath of office, and instead of taking stock of what was in the best interests of the nation whose Constitution and laws you swore to uphold, you viewed the matter purely in terms of your own ego,” said Conway. “You viewed the investigation as casting doubt on what you perceive as your great election victory (in which your opponent garnered nearly three million more votes than you did), and so you took multiple steps to obstruct, and repeatedly lied about, the investigation from the outset.”

Although Mueller’s two-year probe found no conspiracy between Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and Russia, the redacted report detailed “multiple acts by the President that were capable of exerting undue influence over law enforcement investigations, including the Russian-interference and obstruction investigations.” It also stated that “while this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him” on the obstruction of justice issue.

Still, despite laying out the evidence of possible obstruction like attempting to get Mueller fired, no conclusions were drawn on the matter, and Attorney General William Barr decided not to bring charges against the president, which Trump declared as “complete and total exoneration.”

“Even today, despite the well-founded assessments of the intelligence community, and despite the damning evidence laid out in the Mueller report, you refuse to take what the Russians did seriously,” said Conway. “Instead, you continue to lie, calling the investigation a ‘hoax’ and an ‘attempted coup,’ and you didn’t even mention Russia’s conduct in your recent 90-minute conversation with Putin, the man who seeks to undermine our institutions.”

Last week, before the Judiciary Committee voted to hold Barr in contempt of Congress, Trump asserted executive privilege over the unredacted Mueller report to keep it away from the House Judiciary Committee and instructed his former aides not to comply with a congressional subpoena to testify about the report’s findings.

Conway ended his condemnation by accusing Trump of putting his own interests before the nation’s, an offense for which, he said, the president should leave office, without specifying resignation or impeachment.


“Put simply, you put your own perceptions of your self-interest above the national interest, which you seem unable to comprehend or respect,” he wrote. “That is your greatest offense against the country, an offense that incorporates but vastly exceeds the statutory crimes you’ve committed. It is the ultimate high crime or misdemeanor under the Constitution, and under the Framers’ wise design, it is an offense for which you should pay with your office, regardless of whether you are ultimately brought to justice in the courts of law.”

FLASHBACK: Trump’s own mother once proclaimed ‘what kind of son have I created’


Sarah K. Burris SARAH K. BURRIS

President Donald Trump’s mother Mary seemed to have predicted the way that he would impact the world and not necessarily for the best.

The Scottish-born mother died in 2000, but she was already embarrassed by his failed marriages, playboy lifestyle, and business humiliation. Her husband Fred was known for bailing out Trump over and over again, and Mary likely had a ring-side seat to the catastrophes that followed her son.

Trump quotes right-wing commentator in accusing Democrats of waging American ‘coup'


President Donald Trump thinks that Democrats are attempting to take over the United States through a violent coup d’etat, according to his latest tweets.

“’Just another abuse of power in a long series of abuses of power by the Democrats that began during the Obama Administration, continued through the Mueller FBI operation, & now the baton has been passed to Jerry Nadler to continue to abuse power to harass President Trump and the Democrat National Committee-The Democrat Party apparatus-has been caught using donor Dollars to Collude with Russian Intelligence to attack a domestic political opponent (me). The FBI has no leadership. The Director is protecting the same gang…..that tried to overthrow the President through an illegal coup.’ (Recommended by previous DOJ),” Trump tweeted.

He was quoting Tom Fitton, the head of Judicial Watch, a right-wing, pro-Trump outfit that the president has fully endorsed.

If Democrats were staging a coup, the president would call on the military to begin arrests and trials for treason. It’s unclear if Trump knows that or if he’s simply repeating talking points from pro-Trump pals.

Donald Trump is reduced to groveling


Shirley Kennedy | 11:45 pm EDT May 12, 2019

Donald Trump continues trying to obstruct justice, in the name of trying to convince everyone he didn’t already obstruct justice. He and his team have now twice asked Don McGahn to publicly state that he doesn’t believe that Trump obstructed justice. The first time Trump asked, McGahn “reluctantly” declined according to The New York Times. The second request occurred after Trump’s lawyers were given the redacted report, but before it was released to Congress, once they realized just how much it implicated Trump. McGahn declined the request again.

McGahn knew full well that Trump did, indeed, attempt to obstruct the investigation, and he wasn’t about to lie for him. The timing of McGahn’s definitive decision to pass on Trump’s request is interesting. As the NY Times reports, Trump told aides that he believed McGahn leaked the incident to the media “to make himself look good.” Look good at what? This accusation makes no sense whatsoever, but that is typical of Trump.

I deeply want to believe that all human beings are a blend of their best and their worst. Most of us are. I can't find any best in Trump. He is simply evil -- a dark, deluded, raging product of a childhood from which he cannot recover nor be redeemed.
