WATERGATE’S JOHN DEAN MOCKS DONALD TRUMP OVER MUELLER REPORT: ‘WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU READ 400 PAGES PLUS OF ANYTHING’ – Newsweek

Although Michael Cohen has never had a job in the white house because of the weird nature of trumps businesses he is as close to John Dean of Watergate as we can come to today.

John Dean is absolutely correct in his assessment of the current occupant of the White House’s ability to read books or anything for that matter. He seems to have a problem with even a teleprompter. So to think that he would read 400 pages of what must be for the most part of very dry document, I don’t think so.

Trump now claims that he could read the report anytime he wanted to because he’s President. That may be true but it’s 400 pages!honestly I think the four pages of Pulp fiction that attorney general Barr put out 3 weeks ago is even too long for this President. He would need the cliff notes of the bar four-page memo and even at that I don’t think he’d have the attention span to read it all.

It’s amazing now that Barr has told him what is in the report, Trump no longer thinks we should see it. I think that may be a bit suspicious and I’m not alone. He didn’t get a single bump up in the polls after his fake Victory lap that he did prior to us finding out more about the Mueller report. I don’t know when it will come out but it will come out before the election. Trump thinks he has an ace in the Supreme Court. He did not appoint chief justice Roberts who does not want to make the Supreme Court a political tool of the executive branch. So I think that chief justice Roberts is going to do the right thing. If he votes with the for liberals then we will see the report and I truly believe that Congress is going to expedite this all the way up to the Supreme Court as quickly as possible. It’s important for the American people to find out everything there is to know about the shenanigans during the 2016 election so they can make an informed decision in 2020.

Tax code changes leave Americans asking, ‘What happened to my refund?’ – NBC News

I know, it’s hard to believe that tax cuts for the rich is not translating in self into Big refunds for the middle class and the poor. That’s how the Republican cookie crumbles literally. People are up in arms on the internet. They are saying the only reasonthey voted for the current occupants of the White House was for tax relief. Instead he raised their taxes! Not only did you erase it there taxes but he penalized States like California that have income tax where you can no longer deduct that from your income. So here we are California taxation without representation from the federal government because we are certainly not as well represented as Wyoming or Montana or The Dakotas with their 500,000 people and still two US Senators.

Mueller asking if Manafort promised banker White House job in return for loans – NBC News

When a financial institution lends more than a quarter of its total worth to an individual who has no job, no major assets and no way to repay the loan then why would they do it? They did it because Paul Manafort has something that no one wants to hear that is in power. Look at the machination songs that have gone on regarding Paul Manafort and his illicit activities in Ukraine and in Russia. Paul Manafort is at the center of a spoke that goes out all the way around the White House and is what is scaring the hell out of the White House. Loans like this don’t just happen, they happen because somebody is filling the till on the other side.

There’s a Chinese curse that says may you live in interesting times. Maybe you now understand why it’s a curse.
