Montana GOP Congressional Candidate Cited With Misdemeanor Assault of Reporter – NBC News

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

It is ironic that when this first occurred the Reflex action of the police was to take the reporter into custody and then later to the hospital. Montana is a weird state that has so few people that it only has one Congressional seat. If the Republicans lose this seat it will be a major body blow to the GOP. Hopefully having the Republican candidate cited for assault will make the people of Montana wake up and smell the coffee.

Comey Wrote Memo Saying Trump Urged Him to Drop Flynn Investigation: Sources – NBC News

, , , , , , , , , ,

Minute after minute this feels very much like avairy fast reenactment of the fall of Richard Nixon. I was in high school when Nixon was in power. I was in the University of Miami when he was removed from Power. I remember that summer watching the Watergate hearings at my part time job on my small TV which I brought to my job answering phones and was mesmerised by the Senate earrings. And now we have a president that makes President Nixon seem but 9. We have allies now that are threatening to no longer share information with us on terrorism because of his loose lips. And he is very scared of the Russia investigation. This memo by former FBI director Comey is indicative of how scared he is of any investigation of his dealings with Russia prior to becoming president. He knows that it’s the slippery slope that will lead to his downfall. I hope it comes soon because as much as I don’t relish the thought of a president Pence, it seems like a better option that what we have right now in the White House.

Comey invited to testify before Senate panel – POLITICO

, , , , , , , ,

Whatever you think about former FBI director Comey, and I don’t think much good about him, his testimony will be pivotal in unearthing the collusion that is going on in 45’s White House. His unceremonious firing yesterday went against all the rules of protocol. First sessions who is supposed to be recuse from anything to do with the Russian investigation recommended his firing. Then they used the investigation of Hillary Clinton as a cause for his dismissal. Trump while campaigning praised call me over and over again for his investigation of Hillary Clinton and the so-called email server. Now Sean Spicer says that that was just campaign rhetoric and not what the president thinks. That’s so full of BS then smells all the way here to Los Angeles. I am very pleased to see a bipartisan senate committee start unraveling this this mantling of our government. Amazingly, the only public event that 45 has today is to meet with his Russian cohorts.

Once the proverbial cat was out of the bag, the leader of Cal exit went back to the motherland. Putin’s Russia has been meddling in the west Affairs for too long. They hit water behind the push for brexit and obviously Trump’s win but no one knew that they were the force behind Cal exit. Now the leader is moving to Russia where he belongs

Prosecutor: Jeff Sessions’s New Immigration Plan Is ‘F*cking Horrifying’ – The Daily Beast

I guess Ivanka has no sway on Jeff sessions. This man should not be the Attorney General of the United States. Anybody who lies during a congressional hearing should be barred from being the top Justice official in the country. Now Jeff sessions is taking his bigotry and using his power to destroy families. This is going to be a dark time in American history. Jeff sessions is the wrong person for this job and his speech at the Arizona border proves my point. Please read the Daily Beast article for more details.

Sessions recusing himself from Russia probe – POLITICO

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

In my opinion this is just the first step. Jeff sessions needs to resign from his post as Attorney General. Yesterday he claimed that he had conversations with the Russian ambassador during the campaign Elation ship to his duties on the Foreign Relations Committee. NBC News ask 26 of the other members of the Foreign Relations Committee if they had had any contact with the Russian Ambassador or anyone from Russia over the last year, 20 said they have not and six never responded. So this smokescreen of saying that he was doing this within the purview of his duties as a senator is an alternate. But at the end of the day this will mean that there may be a probe of 45 and his campaign and how they colluded with Russia.

POLITICO Breaking News: Pelosi calls on Sessions to resign

Tags

, , , , , ,

I just received the following in an email from political to my personal email address. Unfortunately the link takes you somewhere else, a story about Lindsey Graham asking sessions to recuse himself. So I’m a little baffled about this:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign after it was reported that he failed to disclose contacts he had with the Russian government when questioned during his confirmation hearing. The Washington Post reported that the then-senator, a leading supporter of Donald Trump for president, spoke with Russia’s ambassador to the United States twice last year.

“After lying under oath to Congress about his own communications with the Russians, the Attorney General must resign,” Pelosi wrote in a statement. “There must be an independent, bipartisan, outside commission to investigate the Trump political, personal and financial connections to the Russians.”

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the ranking member on the House oversight committee, also called on Sessions to resign

45’s First Address to Congress Draws Smaller Crowd Than Obama in Early Ratings – Variety.com

I cannot imagine that’s 45 woke up this morning and did not immediately check the ratings of a speech last night. This must be getting under his skin. The inability to be more popular than President Obama. President Obama, the man he tried to question his Birthright to be president. The resistance is working. For myself, I had my TV tunes to the Food Network and did not record Rachel Maddow or any of the shows that I normally do last night. I never went 2ne Muse station throughout the night. We need to tell this man that unless he starts acting like the president of the United States and not just that very small minority that he calls the people we will not give him the legitimacy he so so craves.

The White House’s Politico slime job, from start to finish – The Washington Post

, , , , ,

When Putin was first appointed president by Boris Yeltsin he actually thought about becoming a member of NATO. But then he decided to go the dictator route and the first thing he did was to close down Russian television. Up to that point it had been as free as Russian television had ever been. Now it’s only a tool of the government and Putin’s alter ego. Now we have 45 who is on a Relentless attack on the Press. I have said this many times before but the Press is in our constitution for a reason. Our forefathers called it the fourth estate or the fourth branch of government. It’s the overseer making sure that the government doesn’t overstepped its bounds and commits dereliction of Duty. 45 wants no part of the press because he has his own agenda.

It looks like the well-deserving Trump voter is going to get the shaft when they lose their coverage under the Affordable Care Act. People voting against their best interest is what Republicans hope for and got in 2016. Let’s see how they keep their base together in 2018 when all of these Cuts start making people sick again. Could not happen to a better group of losers. I hope you don’t think I’m being too harsh because I was going to say actually something even harsher.
