Rudy Giuliani admitted to the Committee that in spite of his public claims that Dominion voting machines stole the election, “I do not think that the machines stole the election.”
We are at a dangerous moment in America. Republicans have effectively sanctioned violent vigilante justice.
Barack Obama did not give Donald Trump much advice prior after the former was elected president. One person Obama did warn his predecessor about was Michael Flynn. There were increasingly strange rumors about the Army General. Not surprisingly, Trump ignored the advice and made Flynn his National Security Adviser. But shortly afterwards, Trump fired the…
Donald Trump has quite a day on Wednesday. After deciding not to attend a meeting of Republicans in Gettysburg, PA, he called the phone of lawyer Rudy Giuliani. As the lawyer held the phone up to a microphone, Trump begged for the 2020 election results to be overturned. After his widely mocked phone call, Trump…
President-Elect Joe Biden has reportedly expressed concerns about the many possible criminal prosecutions of Trump distracting from his presidential mission. Just as Barack Obama declined to pursue prosecution against the Bush-Cheney regime for its outright lies about Iraq’s possession of weapons of mass destruction, leading us into a prolonged and unnecessary war with Iraq, costing…

Trump Falsely Accuses Former Acting AG Sally Yates of Committing “Greatest Political Crime of the Century”
President Donald Trump lashed out at former acting Attorney General Sally Yates in a tweet earlier this morning, accusing her of participating in “the greatest political crime of the Century.” The president accused Yates of “leaking” a conversation with former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who would later plead guilty to a felony count of…
U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, who oversees the case against former President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn, has appointed former judge John Gleeson to counter the Justice Department’s argument that Flynn’s case should be dismissed.

Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina, the leader of the House Freedom Caucus, often looks at things differently from most people. And last night was no exception. After reading special counsel Robert Mueller’s sentencing report on former national security advisor Michael Flynn, Meadows reached a conclusion that was shared by almost no other intelligent person….
Special Counsel Bob Mueller has slowly been disclosing a very broad and extensive pattern of deception by Donald Trump’s aides and associates, according to the Associated Press. Seemingly everyone involved tried to cover up Russian contacts during the 2016 campaign and transition period, the AP reported. Most observers have said that they have never seen…
On the surface it appears that Donald Trump is winning. He has a unique ability to dominate news cycles and absorb all of the media’s attention through his brash public statements and his tweet storms. What Trump has said and done since the story was published about an FBI informant in his presidential campaign is…
“I believe high-level Trump associates, including potentially the president himself, are in increasing legal jeopardy. That’s because insiders have turned on them.”
Trump will try to paint Flynn as a liar, but it’ll be a tough sell given all the praise he has heaped on the ex-national security adviser.
Distracting from the increasingly damning Russia scandal by touting a tax scam that will eviscerate the middle-class probably isn’t a good strategy.
It’s becoming increasingly hard to believe that Trump had no idea what some of his closest advisers were up to with respect to Russia.
Federal investigators probing the lobbying work of ousted national security adviser Michael Flynn are focused in part on the role of Bijan Kian, Flynn’s former business partner, according to a person interviewed by the FBI.
The Trump administration is in for a rude awakening if they think the American public will believe the president over James Comey.
Flynn needs to hand over every last shred of paperwork relevant to this probe, not hand over a few to give off the impression that he is being transparent.
The Russians tried to take advantage of the fact that Trump is easily influenced by those around him and has no core convictions.
The New York Times just added fuel to the raging dumpster fire threatening to take down this White House.
The bipartisan move by the Senate Intelligence Committee to force Flynn to hand over all records related to Russia suggests that they are unfazed by Trump’s firing of James Comey.
Maddow said Trump’s move to distract from the Sally Yates hearing was the most “cynical” thing she has seen in politics in “many, many years.”
“The White House should be going through a full lifestyle polygraph to determine was Michael Flynn just an individual liar or did he have accomplices?”
Not only did Yates best the White House and its GOP allies on the facts, but she also destroyed them on the optics, which may be even more important to the former reality star president.
“Ask Sally Yates, under oath, if she knows how classified information got into the newspapers soon after she explained it to W.H. Council.”
“If you want to turn this president to stone, ask him about Mike Flynn.”
“This White House has made a decision that they will produce absolutely nothing. I’ve not seen this before, and it sets a very dangerous precedent.”

“More and more information is coming out about the connections of the Trump allies and some people in his cabinet and their connections to Russia, and it’s only going to get worse.”
With members of Congress like Maxine Waters calling them out, Trump and the White House will not get away with lying about or diverting attention from their clear ties to Russia.
This scandal isn’t going away anytime soon – with or without the president’s childish, unhinged tweets.
“Senate intel will NOT grant Flynn immunity. Lawyer told it was ‘wildly preliminary’ ‘not on the table’ right now per”
“Does Trump think ‘immunity’ is this thing that white guys get where you say ‘hey, I’d rather not go to jail’ and they say cool?”
From working with the Russkies to get his boss elected to denying he even talked to the Russkies to potentially being hunted by the Russkies
“It’s the KGB agents running around the West Wing or the national security council.”
“Honest Q for conservatives who aren’t just working with or around Trump, but rationalizing him: In your heart, don’t you know you’re wrong?”
It’s deeply disturbing that the administration, which sees nothing wrong with Flynn’s conduct, is in charge of holding him accountable for it.
The only question now will Donald Trump be able to get a new NSA in place before yet further disasters overtake his administration.
“These people need to start getting lawyers and cutting deals because when we have both sides of the conversation, you are gonna get caught.”
“Opening this line of questioning could be a first step toward some real congressional oversight of the administration.”
The Trump campaign had repeated contacts with the Russian government at a time when Moscow was hacking the U.S. election.
“We need an independent investigation. Damn the lies, full throttle forward on the truth.”
“I just don’t think it’s useful to be doing investigation after investigation, particularly of your own party.”
“Accounts and photographs from other diners seem to indicate these communications occurred in the presence of other guests.”
“The WH ignored DOJ warnings and clearly has troubling ties to Moscow. Jason Chaffetz & Congressional Republicans are shirking their duties”
Amid a growing chorus of demands for an investigation into who knew what, Chaffetz claims “I think that situation has taken care of itself”
“At the same time, General Flynn’s resignation is a troubling indication of the dysfunction of the current national security apparatus.”
“Congressman, there is zero chance that we are going to move on until answers to the questions that present themselves at least get notice from the White House.”
Michael Flynn led the chants of “Lock her up!” Well, we know who should be locked up, and Flynn is only the first. He should be far from the last.
Top Obama officials told the new administration that Flynn “was potentially vulnerable to Russian blackmail.”
“If there’s evidence that makes it clear that Flynn lied to the Vice President and others…he can’t continue to be national security adviser.”
President Trump’s National Security Adviser Michael Flynn did not know how to call the National Guard for an emergency. This is something every administration should know before they walk in the door.
The CIA denied a top aide to Trump’s National Security adviser security clearance, just hours after Donald Trump’s National Security adviser was busted for lying about the nature of his repeated contacts with a Russian ambassador.
Top Democrats are demanding that President Trump fire Michael Flynn immediately after Flynn was busted for possibly undermining Russian sanctions behind President Obama’s back.
Michael Flynn, Trump’s pick as national security advisor, undermined Obama’s foreign policy on behalf of a man who isn’t president yet
Instead of leaving his safe space, Trump remained in post-election hiding to make his first major, post-election remarks.
“It’s like cancer…So it’s like cancer. And it’s a like a malignant cancer, though, in this case. It has metastasized.”
Less than a day after being chosen, President-elect Donald Trump’s choice to be his national security adviser has been reported for a potential violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).
David Duke said, “Bravo President Trump! Some great first steps. We’re on the way, folks, to taking America back.”
Three of Trump’s first five appointees have ties or views that are in line with the white supremacist movement. These appointees are likely to be staffing agencies and departments with others who share their views.
Trump’s choice of Flynn is unsurprising given the anti-Muslim aura that surrounded the president-elect during his campaign.
Even Donald Trump is admitting that his potential running mates are losers who will not make a difference in the election.
Donald Trump’s latest display of poor judgment is that he is seriously considering retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn to be his running mate.
