“President Donald Trump enjoyed breakfast here Friday with Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, heaping praise on the Saudi ruler while ignoring evidence of his role in the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.”
Ahead of a planned meeting with Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit in Japan, President Donald Trump on Wednesday said what he talks about with the Russian president is “none of your business.”
That kind of dismissal has fueled concerns about their previous meetings, some of which are under investigation by Congressover reports that Trump destroyed translators’ notes afterwards or met without any U.S. officials present. The reported destruction of notes is also the subject of lawsuits that allege the Trump administration has violated federal laws about records
And if that is not enough evidence just look at the decision by Trump to not attack Iran at the last moment:
Vladimir Putin on Thursday warned President Trump not to use military force against Iran despite the Islamic Republic’s recent provocations — in comments apparently made before the US charged that Iran had shot down a military drone with a surface-to-air missile.
During a marathon, four-hour call-in show, Putin warned the US that an attack on Iran would have enormous consequences, adding it would trigger an escalation of hostilities across the region.
“It would be a catastrophe for the region as a minimum,” said the Russian strongman, an ally of the Iranian regime.
The Justice Department on Friday released a more complete transcript of a voice mail from Donald Trump’s attorney John Dowd to Rob Kelner, the lawyer for Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn, where he sought information about Flynn’s discussions with the special counsel on the eve of his cooperation deal.
However, the Justice Department refused to turn over transcripts of Flynn’s calls with Russian officials, including then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, even though a federal judge had ordered prosecutors to file those publicly as well on Friday.
The Justice Department refused on Friday to cooperate with a judge’s demand that it publicly release transcripts of recorded conversations between Michael Flynn and Russia’s ambassador to the United States in December 2016.
The refusal was a response to U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, who ordered earlier this month that the Justice Department release several materials related to the case against Flynn, who was President Donald Trump’s campaign adviser and his national security adviser until being ousted for lying about his contacts with the Russians.
This is why we can’t wait until the 2020 presidential election. A weak and uninspiring Democrat, like Biden, could make it too easy for Trump to win re-election. And the party’s establishment seems intent on making that mistake again. Just like in 2016:
…Lichtman, a professor at American University in Washington, DC, was the most prominent voice predicting Donald Trump’s victory in the run-up to the 2016 election. When Trump won, it marked the 9th(!) straight presidential election where Lichtman had correctly predicted the Electoral College winner. (That’s all the way back to 1984, for you math wizards.)
“Democrats are fundamentally wrong about the politics of impeachment and their prospects for victory in 2020. An impeachment and subsequent trial would cost the president a crucial fourth key — the scandal key — just as it cost Democrats that key in 2000. The indictment and trial would also expose him to dropping another key by encouraging a serious challenge to his re-nomination. Other potential negative keys include the emergence of a charismatic Democratic challenger, a significant third-party challenge, a foreign policy disaster, or an election-year recession. Without impeachment, however, Democratic prospects are grim.“
This is an opinion by piece by judge Andrew Napolitano. Who is frequently on FOX News. AN has lately been arguing that Trump has violated his oath of office:
This is Amash’s argument: The special counsel found evidence of obstruction of justice by the president, and historically presidential obstruction of justice is an impeachable offense. This is a legal narrative, not a political one. But it has heretofore not been articulated publicly by any Republican officeholder, until Amash courageously did so last weekend.
The Nixonian argument that the president can do no wrong was soundly rejected by the lessons of Watergate and Nixon’s reluctant resignation, but it has reared its head again. No serious legal thinker — not even an attorney general bent on protecting the president — can make it with intellectual honesty or a straight face.
Here’s another way of forcing Trump out of the White House. Support his primary opponent, former Governor, Bill Weld:
Bill Weld, the only Republican attempting to take on President Donald Trump in the 2020 primary election, claimed his opponent would prefer a country more aligned with a neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic group and without immigrants.
“I celebrate that America has always been a melting pot,” Weld said earlier this week. “It seems he would prefer an Aryan nation.”
Aryan Nations is a “longstanding neo-Nazi group” that includes the religious faction Christian Identity, a “small, virulently racist and anti-Semitic religious sect prominent in the extreme right,” according to the Anti-Defamation League.
While it’s not clear if Weld was referencing the group, he later told ABC News he believed Trump “would prefer a nation with no immigrants.”
President Trump is funneling $62 million of taxpayer funded farm aid to a foreign, Brazilian owned meatpacking company, which is owned by two billionaire majority GOP donor brothers who just so happen to be under investigation by the Department of Justice after the brothers admitted to bribing politicians to obtain benefits for their businesses.
Donald Trump has done and said some terrible things. But this could be the worst. He is jeopardizing the future of country by deliberately bankrupting us. Not even Putin (his boss) could be so destructive:
President Donald Trump is said to not be worried about setting the US up for a massive debt crisis because he doesn’t think it’ll erupt until after he leaves office.
Sources close to the presidency told The Daily Beast that Trump had repeatedly shrugged off any concerns about the rising national debt because it was projected to come to a head only after he would finish a second term.
During a 2017 briefing with senior officials, Trump responded to a presentation of charts and graphics by saying, “Yeah, but I won’t be here,” according to a source The Daily Beast said witnessed the comment.
The fraudster in the White House has no shame. He’ll try to get votes wherever he can. But what must those evangelicals that support Trump so passionately be thinking:
President Donald Trump has released a new LGBTQ Pride t-shirt in time for Pride month – a decision that’s confusing and upsetting LGBTQ advocates. The shirt features a watercolor rainbow design and the phrase “LGBTQ for Trump.” The back bears the Trump-Pence campaign logo and phrase, “Make America Great Again.” It normally retails for $30 […]
Candidate Donald Trump promised he would be an LGBTQ ally. Since he’s been in the White House, however, he’s failed to live up to those promises for at least one part of the community, enacting multiple policies that directly target transgender people.
The latest: The Department of Health and Human Services is rolling back regulations that protected transgender people from being discriminated against by health care providers over their gender identity.
