Rob Goldstone wishes he’d never set up that Trump Tower meeting with the Russians – NBC News

Here’s a hypothetical. An acquaintance calls you and tells you that he has information on how to rob a bank. What do you say? Yeah, that’s great just as long as there’s lots of money or it’s illegal. That was the choice that the Trump campaign had but as we know from the infamous email Donald Trump jr. said “I love it, if it has dirt on Hillary Clinton”.

I have heard all the excuses made by supporters of trump. They say that the campaign was not a polished organization. It was filled with political operatives. If a Russian calls and tell someone that they want to give information red flags should start flying in front of your eyes. It seems that Donald Trump jr. Did not understand or just is a crook but in any case ignorance of the law does not excuse you.

Rob Goldstone, the British music publicist who helped set up the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Russians and members of the Trump campaign team, says he wishes he’d listened to “the little voice in his head” that told him it was a bad idea.

Trump feels angry, unprotected amid mounting crises – Washington Post

This reminds me of the scene in a movie when the accused murderer has been sentenced and he or she starts crying knowing that their fate has been sealed. Sure, he can use the power of the presidency to unclassified documents for his Russian overlords. He can claim that he has no Attorney General. He can put up obstacles throughout the investigation. You can have a clown of an attorney talkin on television nonsense including saying things like the truth isn’t the truth. He can appoint to the Supreme Court a man completely unfit, who believes in an imperial presidency. All this is not going to and the fact that at the end of the day he is going to be in deep trouble. And it’s a trouble of his own making. Perhaps he never thought he was going to be president. Perhaps he believed the polls. Sure now he goes on and on about his miraculous and legendary victory. But in fact he stole the election. He cheated. Do we need to say anything more than to quote him when he said in a speech during the campaign, Russia if you’re listening Please Release Hillary Clinton’s emails.

I can’t wait till this nightmare, of the tangerine color is out of our Lives. The sooner the better. And don’t think that Mike Pence is in better shape, in fact he was in charge of the transition and therefore had to know everything that was going on. perhaps the American people finally figure out that the Republicans don’t have their best interest on their mind and its current configuration. It’s time to vote them out of office and truly get back to the normal order of business. I just hope that this man does not take the country down with him.

Devin Nunes Seeks Intel on Christopher Steele in London – The Atlantic

It’s remarkable that a member of Congress, yes the US Congress, is believed to be a leaker of information and not just any information but information vital to the safety of our country. Devin Nunez has undermined his country’s ability to protect itself from Russians. It is seemingly that he is in some way compromised because of his behavior or actions. The Russians must have something on him. I have no information that says this but if one looks at Behavior then one can speculate. Even our closest ally the United Kingdom refused to meet with him because of fears that he would turn around and leave the information. is this truly someone we want representing us in Congress?

remember this is the Devin Nunes who is the chairman of the house intelligence committee. This is the same Devin Nunez that has done everything in his power to stop the Mueller investigation. This is the same Devin Nunez that has called in for questioning the two highest people fighting Russia in the FBI and tried to crucify them in front of eye closed hearing of Congress which was promptly leaked. This is the same Devin Nunez who should not be reelected as a member of Congress.

Andrew Janz is running against him in November. It’s imperative that we donate to this wonderful candidate. This is not a normal election, 2016 has turned the tide on America and we are seeing our rights and Privileges and safety being the night. Whether it’s the Clean Water we drink or the Clean Air we wish to breathe. So I ordered you to go to his site and give them even one dollar because every little bit will help.

Facebook opens up to researchers — but not about 2016 election – NBC News

Surprise, surprise surprise that Facebook doesn’t want us to see what they did during the 2016 presidential election.

Transparency means transparency and not transparency with an Asterix.

it’s time that Facebook and Martha fess up to what they fail to do or did during the 2016 election. They accepted advertising against Hillary Clinton paid for in Rubles. If that did not set off alarms What would?

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.

White House Transcript Omits Key Putin–Trump Moment – The Atlantic

If you’re like me you watch Rachel Maddow religiously. Tonight was quite an eye-opener. An American Administration lying to its people in such a bold way is unprecedented. I watched the press conference in Helsinki live as they did millions of others. I heard the question very clearly being asked to President Putin as to whether or not he favored Donald J Trump in the 2016 election. He clearly said yes I did yes I did and that he had asked his government to help in every way to get Trump elected because it would help US Russia relations.

when the White House released the transcript of this press conference viewed Again by millions the question about whether Putin favor Trump has been admitted. When the White House released video of that same interaction the same question had been edited out of Putin’s answer.

We here the current occupant of the White House screaming out fake news all the time. Well fear is fake history. I along with millions of others heard and saw with my own eyes what was said and now it’s disappeared. it’s as if this white house does not understand the concept of recording. Obviously recordings are going to be the downfall of this president. But what is most outrageous to me is that the Russian government transcript of the same press conference has the same exact admissions as the one from the White House. This is not just scandalous, this is are waving a white flag to a second-rate country. And when I say second-rate country I mean it. Russia fell from the 29th largest economy to the 30th largest economy this year. Thanks to the crippling sanctions put on by the Obama Administration.

in addition, Trump released a retweet from Russian State television of a fake news article. This fake news article said that Hillary Clinton was Pro Russia when in fact we know the hatred that Putin had for Hillary because of her stance in implementing the crippling sanctions which have made Russia perhaps a third tier country.

Trump is running our country the way he ran his businesses with lies deceit and eventual bankruptcy.

I guess the next installment is when this fall our President meet with his komisar.

“Did They Think I Was Just Going to Roll Over and Die?”: The Cohen vs. Trump Battle Ratchets Up – Vanity Fair

It’s funny how politics can make you switch allegiances. Take me for example, when James Comey came out and did that thing in October reigniting the so-called email scandal I was furious at him. Now he’s telling people to vote democratic, am I supposed to like them now?

Michael Cohen, the thug that has had the moniker of Donald Trump’s fixer for the last 15 years he’s not one of my favorite people on the planet. Now he’s trying to save his skin. He’s painting himself as a family man one who cares about his children and wants to watch them grow up and not do so from a prison cell. Hey, I’m a human being I understand completely that sentiment. The problem is when you sell your soul to the devil, the Devil comes and get your soul when it’s time. Michael Cohen can claim to be this new person hell-bent on making sure Donald Trump gets his but in the grand scheme of things Michael corn deserves everything he is going to get.

‘Trump’s son should be concerned’: FBI obtained wiretaps of Putin ally who met with Trump Jr. – Yahoo News

 

Don Jr may very well be the downfall of Don senior. Don Jr never thinks before talking. He has been an embarrassment to his family. And now he is going to cause the downfall of the Trump Administration.

you add in the fact that he is cost the American taxpayers over half a million dollars in Secret Service protection solely for his personal use. He went on a trip to the Middle East to open a new Trump property and that cost the Secret Service $258, 000 then he went on a trip to Paris to to show off to his ex wife that he still was a man and that cost the US taxpayer $250, 000. It’s amazing to me how the supposedly fiscally responsible Republicans are wasting money like it’s going out of style. The people benefiting are the very rich on the backs of the very poor.

Russian firm indicted in special counsel probe cites Kavanaugh decision to argue that charge should be dismissed – WashPost

Of course the the Supreme Court choice of trump once nothing more than to have the special counsel disappear. So it makes all the sense in the world that the accused Russians involved our siding Supreme Court nominee Kavanagh in their bid to get out of the crimes they committed. Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh would be a blight on our judicial system and would remove rights from minorities, immigrants, lgbtq, pro-choice and the list goes on and on.

The Lost City of Trump – POLITICO Magazine

How did we get a man who has no vision to become the president of the United States? This article talks about a project that Trump planned on being his legacy. Instead it’s a massive failure. Never happened. Remind you of anything?

He is hurting us into a recession, a trade War leading to a economic depression just the things that Hitler used to divide the world into factions that created World War II. Millions died unnecessarily and we as Americans must make sure that he does not get a chance to do this to our country.

Trade wars between allies are unnecessary. That’s why they are our allies. What Trump wants us to be allied with Russia and not with the UK, Canada and the EU. I truly believe he wants to be president for life. I truly believe that he thinks he can create a royal presidency. I truly believe that he thinks that either Ivanka or Jared can take over from him. He looks at North Korea as his model for how he wants United States history to continue. This is a scary time for America and Americans and we must go out and vote. We must donate as much money as we can afford two political parties we believe in. With the likes of citizens united the Koch brothers and those who are aligned with Trump will be pouring billions into elections along with the help of Russia. Give $5 today to the Democratic party and do so each month. Give more if you can.
