There’s a big tell in Trump’s latest defense of Donald Jr. – Washington Post

I have a couple of things to say here. First and foremost, ignorance of the law does not excuse you from the law. The defense that is being melted for Donald Trump Jr is that he didn’t know it was against the law to get opposition research from a foreign country. I am not a politician but if a foreign adversary came to me while I was running a campaign the first thought would be to go to the FBI and not to say I love it. They keep saying that collusion is not a crime. Yes there is no statute that uses the word collusion. But collusion describes a series of events that lead to getting into a crime.

But what’s more telling is the fact that this President is seemingly throwing his son under the bus. the reason that Rudy Giuliani doesn’t want Trump to have an interview with the special counsel is because he knows he’s going to lie. This tweet clearly states that he knew nothing about it but we know that this man is a stickler for details and would not have had a meeting during his campaign that he did not know about of this importance.Granted he has the pardon power and granted his supporters will forgive anything from this president but unfortunately for this President his hardcore supporters are about 30 to 35% of the population, not enough to win an election.

As an aside, it’s ironic how all of these Republicans who I could not stomach listening to, including Ruth Marcus, have now come out against this president. It is heartening that they understand the country security is more important than anyone presidency. I just wish members of Congress that have an R next to their name would grow a spine and start defending our country and The Oaf they swore. unfortunately, I believe the prospect of the elimination of the capital gains tax is more important to them then our country’s security. Capitals gains tax is levied on mostly very rich people and that’s their donor base.

MSNBC legal expert: Cohen flipping puts Trump ‘one witness away’ from catastrophe – TheHill

When you live in a den of Thieves who do you accuse when something is stolen?

I have never understood why anyone would like Rudy Giuliani. He was an unlikeable mayor who did a terrible job at running the city. And his time since 9/11 has been anything but spectacular. Now, this drooling excuse for an attorney he’s trying to make what is obviously a crime into a nothingburger, to quote one of the future co-conspirators.

I’ve said it before, Michael Cohen has no pedigree but even a liar like Michael corn can be corroborated by a second Witness. All of those people at the Trump Tower pre-meeting are subject to be interrogated and perhaps even be charged and one of them is going to flip. And that one would be the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back, in this case the camel’s back is the Trump Administration. And I don’t want to hear anything about a president Pence, he was in charge of the transition and therefore neck deep in the crud of this Administration.

Trump, like McCarthy, is master of conspiracy and innuendo – Chicago Tribune

Wow, being compared to McCarthy must make Donald Trump’s day. He has said through innuendo so many falsehoods that it’s hard to put them all together. Accusing President Obama to have Isis ties in some sort of weird conspiracy theory. The list is endless. He says things like Ted Cruz’s father had something to do with Kennedy’s assassination and let them hang for the media to jump on. He’s running a dirty campaign, end of discussion, and should never be the president of the United States of America.

Donald Trump Takes Conspiracy Turn After Orlando – NBC News

That’s exactly what we need in the White House a conspiracy theorist. He said today that President Obama doesn’t want to know what’s happening. That he has a secret agenda. That he is ineffective.
Let’s talk about secret agendas. In the seven years after 9/11 the Bush Administration did not find Osama bin Laden. President Obama found him and killed him. Doesn’t that say something? This buffoon who wants to be president needs to be puzzled by his overseers. He’s trying to lower President Obama’s approval ratings so that it helps him when the White House. People cannot be fooled by this language.
