Politics / 2ND REPUBLICAN CALLS FOR TRUMP’S IMPEACHMENT
« on: May 24, 2019, 02:40:28 AM »
Former Republican Congressman Joins Call To Impeach Donald Trump

“The political calculus not to pursue impeachment is understandable. Current polls show a majority of voters do not favor it. But critical times require exceptional leadership. Lawmakers of both parties should not blindly follow the polls but instead follow the evidence and their conscience. Politics should not rule the day. Partisan politics is what got us to this dangerous place — so dangerous, I believe, that the survival of our democracy is at risk," Coleman wrote.  :clap:

The comments from the Republican say that though Mueller's report did not find evidence that president or his campaign had broken any laws, "the net effect was that the Trump campaign encouraged a foreign adversary to use and misrepresent stolen information on social media platforms to defraud U.S. voters. Because the presidency was won in this way, the president's election victory brought forth nothing less than an illegitimate presidency."   :o

Paul Manafort enters cooperation agreement with Justice Department

By Katelyn Polantz, CNN
Updated 11:53 AM ET, Fri September 14, 2018

Washington (CNN) Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has agreed to cooperate with the Justice Department, including in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Manafort will plead guilty to one count of conspiracy against the US and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice due to attempts to tamper with witnesses, according to a court filing Friday.
Prosecutor Andrew Weissmann told the judge Manafort's plea agreement is a "cooperation agreement," and other charges will be dropped at sentencing at "or at the agreement of successful cooperation." The scope of the cooperation was not immediately clear.

Politics / Exclusive: First charges filed in Mueller investigation
« on: October 27, 2017, 09:25:36 PM »
Washington (CNN)  A federal grand jury in Washington, DC, on Friday approved the first charges in the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to sources briefed on the matter.

The charges are still sealed under orders from a federal judge. Plans were prepared Friday for anyone charged to be taken into custody as soon as Monday, the sources said. It is unclear what the charges are.
A spokesman for the special counsel's office declined to comment.

Mueller was appointed in May to lead the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Under the regulations governing special counsel investigations, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has oversight over the Russia investigation, would have been made aware of any charges before they were taken before the grand jury for approval, according to people familiar with the matter.

An emotional Sen. John McCain on Monday leveled a blistering attack on what he called the "half-baked, spurious nationalism" that seems to have inspired President Donald Trump's administration to retreat from the world stage.



“To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain 'the last, best hope of earth' for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history."

Politics / Trump’s Worst Week Since Last Week
« on: August 04, 2017, 09:13:08 PM »
This may be the most pointed and entertaining takedown of Donald Trump I've heard from anyone, let alone from a conservative.
-–--------

By Rick Wilson

With the news that special counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury to investigate Russia’s election-tampering and the Trump campaign’s role in it, Thursday was the single worst day in the single worst week of the Trump presidency.
Even before this devastating news, if you wanted to pick a week where the Trump administration got its a**  handed to it at virtually every turn, this would be it. At almost every moment in the news cycle, Team Trump was getting beaten like a rented mule. The fallout of the Anthony Scaramucci firing is barely cool to the touch, and already this week’s pile of steaming radioactive waste from this White House is hip-deep.
Virtually nothing is going right for Trump. “Alexa, order more schadenfreude.”

On Wednesday, Trump was forced into signing the bipartisan Russian sanctions bill. Passed by overwhelming, veto-proof majorities in both the House and Senate, Trump was trapped like a Russian mink in a snare. After pretending the dog ate his homework for a day by claiming the White House didn’t have the bill, and with the knowledge that he would face the staggering political loss of a veto override, he grudgingly, reluctantly, painfully signed it. As a caveat, Trump included one of the most whinging, self-pitying signing statements on record, some of it clearly crafted by the Toddler in Chief himself with self-aggrandizing references to everything but his golf handicap.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury in Washington to investigate Russia’s interference in the 2016 elections, a sign that his inquiry is growing in intensity and entering a new phase, according to people familiar with the matter.

The grand jury, which began its work in recent weeks, is a sign that Mr. Mueller’s inquiry is ramping up and that it will likely continue for months. Mr. Mueller is investigating Russia’s efforts to influence the 2016 election and whether President Donald Trump’s campaign or associates colluded with the Kremlin as part of that effort.

A spokesman for Mr. Mueller, Joshua Stueve, declined to comment. Moscow has denied seeking to influence the election, and Mr. Trump has vigorously disputed allegations of collusion. The president has called Mr. Mueller’s inquiry a “witch hunt.”

Clearly this isn't a "witch hunt." Mueller is hunting criminals.

Politics / Finally! A Win For POTUS: Well, Sort of...
« on: August 02, 2017, 11:46:29 AM »
Starving for a win, Trailer Trash Trump finally gets to sign a bill, but the win is bittersweet.  TTT signs a bill with overwhelming bipartisan support that increases sanctions against the very country responsible for him being elected POTUS.  In addition, the bill restricts TTT from lifting the sanctions without congressional approval -- a move which indicates Congress doesn't trust their own president. But for TTT, he'll take a win anyway he can get one.  So, here's to "winning," Trailer Trash Trump!  You should be relieved... I know Americans are. :laugh:

Politics / The ACA Is Here To Stay. Thanks to...
« on: July 28, 2017, 02:06:42 AM »
Senator John McCain.   

With that said, the GOP will pay a heavy price, and they should.  They have been lying to the American people for 7 years about how bad Obamacare was for this country, and vowed to repeal it.  They had 7 years to come up with a viable plan to repeal and replace, but they couldn't do it.  Why?  Because repeal and replace isn't a solution and would do more harm than good.   

The solution was and is to WORK TOGETHER to make the ACA better.  Both sides, yes, both sides, need to stop playing games and do the job they were elected to do, which is to work together for the good of our country.

Sen. Lindsey Graham vows 'holy hell to pay' if Attorney General Jeff Sessions is fired.

Washington (CNN) As President Donald Trump continues to publicly criticize Jeff Sessions, one of the attorney general's former colleagues is promising that if Sessions is fired, there will be "holy hell to pay."

"I'm 100% behind Jeff Sessions," Sen. Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican, told CNN's Manu Raju Thursday morning on Capitol Hill. "If Jeff Sessions is fired, there will be holy hell to pay."
The Republican lawmaker also slammed Trump for what he views as an effort to "marginalize and humiliate" Sessions, adding that his Senate colleagues are also displeased with the recent barrage of attacks.

Senator Graham also indicated if Mueller is fired without legal cause, "it could be the beginning of the end of the Trump Presidency." 

Senator Ben Sasse also warned Trump about firing Sessions and making a recess appointment, "forget about it.  The Presidency isn't a bull, and this country isn't a China shop."

Paul Ryan has said Republicans in Congress should not spend all their time defending Donald Trump, after the President accused them of failing to protect him.

Mr Ryan also defended special counsel Robert Mueller – who is leading the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election – saying he was "anything but" biased against the Republican Party.


The House Speaker made the comments after Mr Trump tweeted: "It's very sad that Republicans, even some that were carried over the line on my back, do very little to protect their President".

In light of news reports that President Trump’s team is scouring the record for conflicts of interest on special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s team (the essence of chutzpah) and contemplating pardons (of aides and/or himself), it is worth considering how this may all play out.

We offer several scenarios:

1. Trump orders Attorney General Jeff Sessions to fire Mueller. Sessions quits, as does Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein and Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand. Eventually someone agrees to fire Mueller. Republicans either will not pursue impeachment or are obliged to begin impeachment hearings but refuse to vote out articles of impeachment. In 2018, Democrats sweep to victory in the House and gain a seat or two in the Senate. Trump cannot be removed (two-thirds of the Senate is required for removal), but his presidency is in tatters. Some aides or ex-aides face criminal prosecution. LESSON: Republicans’ failure to stand up to Trump early dooms his presidency and crashes the GOP.
