CIA’s top lawyer made ‘criminal referral’ on whistleblower’s complaint about Trump conduct – NBC News

I think we’re going to hear a lot about John Mitchell. He was the attorney general for Richard Nixon and I think that William Barr is taking a lot of pages from Mitchell’s handbook. The problem with taking pages from his hand book is that it led John Mitchell directly to jail, then stop at go and did not have a get-out-of-jail card.

When the CIA Inspector General puts in the hands of the justice department a criminal referral and it’s put in somebody’s top drawer and locked that’s against the law. There needs to be an investigation, the justice department must at least look at it to see whether or not there are any valid reasons to pursue it. We know how this attorney general works and he works only for president Trump.

Maybe it’s my political bias but I remember Watergate a lot more than I remember President Clinton’s impeachment. Well, first well Watergate was going on I was in college and had time to follow it very closely whereas during the Clinton impeachment I had a full-time job and also ran one of the largest AIDS fundraisers in the country. My time was very much like my own. And perhaps that’s why I always refer back to Watergate has my template on how a president should not behave. That being said, what’s the current occupant of the White House is doing is outside anyone’s norms or or anyone’s experience with other presidents. Sure we’ve had corrupt presidents but this is corruption on a scale that has never been seen before. Our founding fathers, that the GOP seems so so in love with, had put in closet in our constitution specifically to make sure that foreign forces don’t have control over the president of the United States. They were worried that after the British lost in the Revolutionary War that the country would be divided into two parties, the English party and the French party. It didn’t work out like that. Our founding fathers did not want political parties but I think they should have thought a little bit more, it’s a human nature. It’s kind of like Lenin never considering that human greed would be the death of communism.

You know, this president has been yelling at the top of his lungs for the Democrats to grow a backbone. Well their backbone is fully formed and they are going after him and going for the jugular.

Tillerson: Netanyahu, Israelis ‘played’ Trump – POLITICO

We should have voted in Tony Schwartz as our president in 2016. He actually wrote The art of the deal. The guy we have in office right now doesn’t know how to do a good deal if it hit him in the face. So when former Secretary of State tillerson says that Israel and especially the corrupt Prime Minister of Israel Netanyahu played Trump that is as unsurprising as anything one has heard in the last three years.

This is the most corrupt and inept president we’ve ever had in this country. He insists on running the country as if the 38% that voted for him are the only people who live here. He has stepped over every boundary that was set up by our founding fathers. They never ever thought that the American people would be so stupid as to elect a man like Trump. But we did.

On a similar subject that is big news right now it was really unsurprising that Trump did not deny making a phone call to a foreign leader and subsequently making up a promise that alarmed a whistleblower. He just said that he knew that people would be listening but never denied it. we watch him on television during his rallies and his brain, the brain of a stable genius, wanders more than anything I’ve ever seen can a human brain. He can’t stay on one subject for any length of time. it’s almost like there is a laser pointer and he’s a cat.

Do United States of America and its population has one remedy and that’s in 20/20. We have 400 days to pick someone to run against them and hope that the foreign powers that this man has cozied up to don’t interfere and how we elect our president. I am in no way confident of this outcome. He has made it clear that he would happily accept help for his re-election from Russia. his people are blackmailing Ukraine into trying to get information on potential Democratic rivals. The corruption of this man, the corruption in plain sight, is nauseating, depressing and disheartening.

On a side note, Tillerson and Exxon Mobil are responsible for this climate crisis. 10 billion birds have been in North America in The last 5 ears, our planet is crushing in on itself.

Trump says he wanted to give himself Medal of Honor for valor during war – POLITICO

Quick question to my readers. Do you know anyone who has gotten the medal of valor from the United States of America for draft dodging before?

My mom and dad lost a child before I was born and I was very precious to them. My time to serve our country in Vietnam came and although they would have dreaded seeing me go they would have let me go to Vietnam because that was what Americans do. My draft number was very high up and I was never called that’s completely different from what happened during Trump’s time to serve our country.

His father is a racist to come to a doctor that said he had a bone spur. We have never seen any evidence of this being true. He is a draft Dodger, end of discussion.

The medal of Honor is given to those who have served our country and to joke about it and tell people who are getting their medal how he should have given himself one is so disrespectful that every veteran even those who voted for Trump should be screaming blasphemy.

Deutsche Bank Staff Saw Suspicious Activity in Trump and Kushner Accounts – NYT

If you’re reading my blog you like politics and so you may know this already. But I have to make a huge Point here, don’t your bank is not a respectable banking institution. It has been found to fund terrorist and terrace backwards. This is basically a bank of last resort if you are a corporation. And this bag, that has seen so much, thinks that Jared Kushner and Donald J Trump were suspicious in their activities.

It’s time for Congress to do its job and start down the road to complete investigation of this president. The election being less than 16 months away impeachment may not be the remedy. But congressional oversight certainly should be. And I have to ask respectfully to the chairman that have been giving this President these incredibly generous time frames for complying with subpoenas they need to stop. He’s not going to comply with subpoenas and we need information about this man before he does even more damage to our country.

War in Iranis looked upon by the GOP as a good distraction and a way of making people more patriotic and voting within the country’s interest. I think people are smart and they understand what war is. We had war with Iraq and is anybody happy with the outcome? I heard Tom Cotton on Meet the Press completely distort what’s happening with a Iran. Yes of late they are ramping up the fences because of this president. If you have a bully in school and you start taking self-defense courses one should not think of that as being hostile and its intentions but rather self-defense. I am no fan of Iran ruling establishment but the people of Iran are wonderful people and they should not be thrust into war because of some bull headed male testosterone driven War.

Democrats Ask FBI To Investigate Pro-Trump Former Owner Of Massage Parlors – NPR

Li “Cindy” Yang and Donald J Trump, two peas in a pod. Scam artists United. One created a minor Empire with massage parlors across southern Florida the other created a minor Empire with fake real estate investments. One became president the other one sells access to that president. I think if the owner of the New England Patriots, Kraft, had not been arrested big one upper Paradise of Asia massage parlors perhaps this story would have never made the news.

Unfortunately for Trump and her it happened. Granted she doesn’t own the massage parlors anymore but the stain spreads very quickly.

I guess in 2016 Trump like saying that he was going to drain the swamp. He also said he was going to hire the best people. He doesn’t say that much any more does he? He truly has brought the best people to government, the best fraud artists, the best grifters, the best scam artist, truly has created a whole new swamp well systematically destroying our government and the environment where we all live.

Senate Intelligence Committee Democrats Dispute Claims That Russia Probe Found No Collusion – Mother Jones

it’s rather spectacular how do the GOP hierarchy has jumped on this no collusion bandwagon. I just saw the chairwoman of the RNC say that Trump has been exonerated! I laughed hard and then I blocked her.

Let’s make a few things clear here. First of all the Senate intelligence committee is a fact-gathering they do not have the power to put anyone in jail or even say that someone should be put in jail. Also unlike the Mueller investigation they cannot compel the testimony of people like with Gates who have the proverbial sword hanging over his head regarding how long he’ll go to jail if he doesn’t cooperate. They don’t have access to all of the information that Robert Mueller has but that’s not their job.

You know who else has attached in front of them, the prosecutors of the southern district of New York, the attorney General of New York, prosecutors from the Washington DC Office of the attorney General. Yes there are a lot more people looking into this then we know about.

Trump is in huge trouble and he knows it.

Not just misleading. Not merely false. A lie. – Washington Post

Watching the post-apocalyptic White House and it’s inability to handle the new shoes that came out yesterday it seems like there is no one in the White House that knows what they’re doing. Sarah Huckabee Sanders today repeated over and over and over again the same untruth, misleading information, lies. Fox News had what can be best described as a softball interview with Trump today for their Morning Show in the morning. He lied and gave misinformation over and over again.

I don’t know how he sees himself regarding President Obama. But President Obama sure has made an impression on Trump. I want to get one thing factually straight here. President Obama in 2008 had individuals who gave recurring monthly donations and some of these donations went above the$2, 700 limit. In those days in 2008 and 2009 when President Obama was given the reins early for the economy to be turned around and to save millions and millions of jobs if not to save us from a depression it took a while for his campaign to reimburse everyone for their / donations. But President Obama did not hide the fact, as if, that he had had sex with pornstars and Playboy models while his wife was pregnant. President Obama did not then pay his fixer to pay hush money to these women. President Obama didn’t none of this and he did not have 2 give a false contract to Karen McDougal. No President Obama but yet Donald Trump wants us to believe that he and President Obama are the same. As if…

The Post’s Fact Checker Glenn Kessler explains why he’s labeling President Trump’s claims about Michael Cohen and Stormy Daniels “a lie.” (Monica Akhtar, Peter Stevenson/The Washington Post)

If Cohen is telling us the truth, Trump may end up like Flynn – TheHill

One time, and this one time only, I will agree with Rudy Giuliani about something. Michael Cohen is a liar. he is a liar that is trying his hardest to keep himself out of jail. What the good America’s mayor forgot to say was that a few weeks ago Giuliani himself said that Michael corn was a good man. A good man is not a liar or do I have my definitions mixed up?

I truly hope that the headline of this story is what happens in the end. But one thing that is never spoken about is the fact that Mike Pence, yes mr. Clean cut vice president, was in charge of the transition. And as such he must have known about Flynn, the Russians, and all of the other Shenanigans going on in those horrendous months between the election and the inauguration of the 45th president. So who will take over from Trump if Mike Pence is also implicated? And that’s why we need to have Democratic house in November. Because next in line is the speaker of the house and not the Secretary of State as so many believe. And can you imagine a president Jim Jordan? Alright enough nightmares for today.
