More turmoil in the White House continues to cast doubt on Donald Trump’s leadership. Start with the firings of FBI Deputy Director, Andrew McCabe, and Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson. McCabe’s potentially unfavorable testimony before a grand jury convened by Special Counsel, Robert Mueller, doomed him. Trump has now fired two top FBI officials, including Director, James Comey, to protect himself from Mueller’s Russia investigation.
Thank goodness for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. If not for their continuing mistakes and unpopularity, it would have been a tough week for President Trump and the Republican Party.
Today, we learn that the Robert Mueller forces are apparently sending his troops up to, if not, beyond the Trump red line.
Despite threats of shutting down the special counsel operation, Mueller is on the march as he is reported to have issued subpoenas to the Trump Organization. So goes a real investigation, not the cowardly corrupt activity we saw led by the notoriously deceptive, Devin Nunes.
Last night’s Democratic Party victory in a congressional special election in Pennsylvania should terrify Republican Party leaders. Former Marine, 33-year-old Democrat Conor Lamb apparently edged GOP candidate Rick Saccone by several hundred votes.
The Republican Majority who control the House Intelligence Committee has rendered a judgment and The New York Times reported it as follows: “‘The bottom line [is] the Russians did commit active measures against our election in ’16, and we think they will do that in the future,’ Mr. Conaway, said. But, he added, ‘We disagree with the narrative that they were trying to help Trump.’” Perish the thought!
Donald Trump, unquestionably, had great economic news he had a right to gloat over with the jobs report posting on Friday, an increase of $313,000 jobs for the month of February. The stock market remains strong, the jobs are becoming more plentiful and there is optimism in the air.
Retired Col. Rob Maness, during our Friday morning Facebook and Twitter Live show, being held at 8am, weekly, said that President Donald Trump runs risk of impeachment if he abandons 2nd Amendment.
What did U.S. Representative Devin Nunes know and when did he know it?
When the loyal soldier for President Donald Trump, Nunes, told the nation that the Democrats (DNC) and the Clinton campaign conspired with the FBI and the DOJ to obtain a search warrant and renewed warrants from the FISA court to surveil Carter Page for the purpose of hurting Trump, he put into the Congressional record and into the public debate, corrosive allegations of which he has not yet provided any proof.
The raging debate: Did the Nunes memo hurt the Democrats and the Russia investigation? Or, did the Schiff memo undermine Congressman Devin Nunes's allegations and further erodie his own, the Republican House Intelligence and even the president's own credibility?
At issue: Whether the FBI and the Justice Department (DOJ) properly educate the FISA court judges when they obtained and renewed the warrant on Carter Page?
Waiting for Paul Manafort to flip is like waiting for Godot. He’s never going to show up to plead, no matter how many eye-witnesses there are to his alleged financial shenanigans, frauds, and international hanky-panky. If Special Counsel Robert Mueller wants the inside story on the purported criminality of the ex-chair of the Trump campaign he ought to call Russian metals oligarch Oleg Deripaska who’d have a better story to tell, anyway.
Ever since Donald Trump officially entered the presidential race on June 16, 2015, the national news media has treated him with total disdain. It has been even worse since Donald Trump was elected President as networks such as CNN and MSNBC have devoted almost their entire broadcast schedule to attacking his personality, temperament and agenda.
Today, the United States Space Council meets for the second time at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
