John Dean's Juicy Tidbit

John Dean

I have been convinced for weeks that the White House has been pushing the rumor that Mueller is finishing, about to report, and has found nothing more than we already know. This is baloney. Mueller is building a giant conspiracy to defraud the USA — 18 USC 371. Stay tuned!

AOC's Comeback to those who want to "send her back to waitressing."


I find it revealing when people mock where I came from, & say they’re going to “send me back to waitressing,” as if that is bad or shameful.

It’s as though they think being a member of Congress makes you intrinsically “better” than a waitress.

But our job is to serve, not rule.

You guys... He...he signed *the covers*

With the same hand that signed a check to pay off a porn star.

Wow. Just wow. Kudos to Medhi Hasan who holds Erik Prince Accountable!!!

Wow. Erik Prince is saying that the transcript of his testimony is wrong, and that’s why he lied

Toward the end of the interview, I raised the issue of “Russiagate” and the special counsel’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Putin government. Prince was grilled by the House Intelligence Committee over a secret meeting he had in the Seychelles with Kirill Dmitriev, a Russian oligarch described as a “messenger” to Putin by Prince’s friends in the UAE; the meeting was on January 11, 2017, nine days before Trump’s inauguration. “It lasted one beer,” he told me flippantly, in reference to the Dmitriev meeting, which has been described by U.S., European, and Arab officials as “an apparent effort to establish a backchannel line of communication between Moscow and President-elect Donald Trump.”

But why didn’t Prince tell members of Congress about his other secret meeting, in Trump Tower in August 2016? Especially if it was about a sensitive foreign policy issue like Iran?

“I don’t believe I was asked that question,” he replied.

Not true. I reminded him that he had been asked by a member of the House Intelligence Committee whether he had any “formal communications or contact with the campaign.”

The Blackwater founder then switched tack. He “did” inform the committee about the meeting, Prince told me. Why wasn’t it in the transcript of the hearing then, I countered? “I don’t know if they got the transcript wrong,” he said. Later in the interview, in response to a question from the audience, he doubled down: “Not all the discussion that day was transcribed, and that’s a fact.”

Got that? First, he said he wasn’t asked; then he said he told them about it; then he claimed that they made a mistake with the transcript; then he claimed that it was said off the record.

Takei: What if Obama had watched the Superbowl with the ex-owner of the sex parlor?

Trying to think what the GOP response would be if Obama had watched the Superbowl with the ex-owner of the sex parlor where his buddy had been arrested.

Cindy Yang removed her Facebook page after we started finding all the access she has to the White House. How does somebody like that pass a background check to even get in. I'm assuming Trump once again overrode the opinions of the Secret Service and FBI

Jimmy Carter Willing To Travel To North Korea To Help Broker A Deal

According to a Thursday Politico report, Carter (age 94) no longer travels, but told Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) that he would make the trek if President Donald Trump asked him.

In 1994, Carter met with Kim Il Sung and the two leaders hammered out a detailed plan to work towards peace and denuclearization. He is the only American President to have such success with North Korean leadership.

Per Politico, Robert Malley, a conflict specialist who worked under President Barack Obama, also has offered his services.

Trump seems unlikely to take either men up on their offers. In recent days, Trump’s attempt to negotiate with Kim fell apart at the Hanoi summit, and South Korea is now reporting unusual activity at North Korean nuclear missile bases.
