Former US Attorney Barbara McQuade said that Giuliani's media interviews are admissible evidence against Trump that creates a whole new set of legal problems for the president.
President Donald Trump was in Ohio on Saturday promoting his agenda, attacking Democrats, and making outrageous comments about immigration and border security.
At a business roundtable promoting his tax cuts and showing his support for Ohio Republican Senate candidate Jim Renacci, the president said “we’re going to get the wall,” even if it requires “closing up the country for a while.”
Rudy Giuliani went on Fox News again Saturday for the third time this week and used the opportunity to defend Donald Trump while attacking Robert Mueller and James Comey. Rudy’s rambling rant was unhinged and made about as much sense as Trump’s tweets on Thursday that apparently were written by a lawyer.
The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that Donald Trump attorney/fixer Michael Cohen received access to $774,000 of funding during the height of the president’s 2016 campaign. Cohen had previously said that he used $130,000 of his own money to pay off porn star Stormy Daniels to keep her quiet about her sexual relationship with Trump.
There is one notable person who:
- Has an extremely close relationship with President Trump.
- Was in Bedminster, New Jersey, with Trump in May of 2017 when he decided to fire FBI Director James Comey.
- Was a passenger on the plane flying home from the G-20 conference in Germany strategizing with the president about how to manage the fallout of Donald Trump Jr.’s June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower.
- Was at Trump Tower and met with the woman Russian lawyer/spy who was present for the June 2016 meeting.
- Was the point person for the Trump Organization for many years on business deals with convicted Russian mafia money launderer Felix Sater.
- Has not been called to testify or talk to Robert Mueller or his team.
So it is a mystery: why hasn’t Robert Mueller called in Ivanka Trump for questioning?
“She’s involved in everything,” said a former White House adviser now in the private sector “It’s odd. Unless they consider her a target of the investigation.”
Fox News host Laura Ingraham blasted President Donald Trump’s new legal analyst and spokesman Rudy Giuliani, for contradicting Trump’s claims that he didn’t know about payments his personal attorney Michael Cohen allegedly made to former adult film star Stormy Daniels. Ingraham said that Giuliani’s televised comments were “a problem” because they contradicted what the president had earlier said about the matter.
In the age of Trump shocking news no longer shocks people. And today’s NBC News/Survey Monkey poll is a case in point.
We should all be shocked by this poll which shows that only 37% of respondents believe that our president tells the truth “all or most of the time.” How can the United States government effectively operate when it is lead by a huckster con artist reality TV show star?
On Monday we reported that members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus have drafted articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein. This is of course an unprecedented move, and it is also a sign of desperation on the part of the congressional allies of President Donald Trump.
The stable genius Donald Trump and his world-class lawyer/fixer Michael Cohen probably would be shocked to learn that the United States has federal laws that say how political campaign money can be spent, because based on their actions it seems that they don’t know that such laws even exist.
Seeing Donald Trump holding a Bible and pretending to be a religious leader is enough to short circuit every synapse in one’s brain.
The Republicans refused to investigate it, and the House Intelligence Committee Report ignored it.
But one of the biggest stories coming out of Washington this week was confirmation of the role of the National Rifle Association (NRA) in helping Russia funnel massive amounts of money into the Trump campaign in 2016.
In Korea, nothing is what it seems.
What they call the demilitarized zone is actually the most heavily militarized area in the world.
Technically the two Koreas are still at war, even though they’ve had over 60 years of peace.
North Korea’s underground nuclear test site has been rendered unusable after most of the mountain on top of it collapsed, according to a group of Chinese scientists. The collapse means there won’t be any more missile testing going on there, and it may also mean there could be radioactive leaks threatening the environment and the health and safety of the population.
