Rachel was getting very close to saying Trump is trying to destroy America tonight and ....

... in the end she just said, "Why?"

My thought is:
We have a Russian agent in the White House and he is working to bring down America.

Politico: Johnstown(PA) Never Believed Trump Would Help. They Still Love Him Anyway.

In a depressed former steel town, the president’s promises don’t matter as much as they once did.

Del Signore said he’s been following politics far more than before because of Trump. Trump, he said, is just “more interesting.” So now he likes watching the news. “Ninety-nine percent of the time I watch Fox,” he said. “Sometimes I’ll be sitting there listening to all this Fox stuff, and I’ll say, ‘Maybe they aren’t right, maybe I’ll flip to CNN’—but every time I’ve found that Fox has been correct, and CNN is definitely fake news.”

Source: CNN

(CNN)The family of one of the 26 people shot and killed in a Texas church Sunday morning appeared on CNN's "New Day" Tuesday with a simple message: "No more guns."

Evangelina Santos, whose brother Richard Rodriguez died in the attack in the small town of Sutherland Springs, choked back tears as she told anchor Alisyn Camerota, "Anybody can carry a gun now, even crazy people. Tell the President that. No more guns."

Santos's niece, Regina Rodriguez, was also emotional as she explained that she was unsure how to tell her five children what happened to their grandfather.

"I just explain to all my kids that he's in heaven," she said. "I don't know what else to do."

Paul Manafort, Rick Gates to remain on house arrest with movements tracked by GPS, judge orders

Source: USA Today

WASHINGTON Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his associate Rick Gates will remain under house arrest and their movements will be tracked by GPS devices until they offer up more bail money to assure their future appearances in court, a federal judge ordered Monday.

Federal prosecutors, who have leveled a 12-count indictment alleging a complex money laundering and tax fraud conspiracy, said they were "close" to reaching an agreement with the men's lawyers to let them out. But U.S. District Judge Amy Jackson said the terms their release would not be eased until bail packages for both men were approved by the court.

"We are not talking about dangerousness," Jackson said in a brief hearing Monday morning. "We're talking about (the risk of) flight."

But the judge said she might let them out of house arrest in a little bit.

Jackson said she was "inclined" to eventually let both Manafort and Gates out of home confinement, and was even open to allowing them to travel within the United States so they could continue their consulting work, but not overseas. "No international travel is going to be a condition of this release," she said.

Mueller Has Enough Evidence to Bring Charges in Flynn Investigation
by JULIA AINSLEY, CAROL E. LEE and KEN DILANIAN

WASHINGTON Federal investigators have gathered enough evidence to bring charges in their investigation of President Donald Trump's former national security adviser and his son as part of the probe into Russia's intervention in the 2016 election, according to multiple sources familiar with the investigation.

Michael T. Flynn, who was fired after just 24 days on the job, was one of the first Trump associates to come under scrutiny in the federal probe now led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into possible collusion between Moscow and the Trump campaign.

Mueller is applying renewed pressure on Flynn following his indictment of Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, three sources familiar with the investigation told NBC News.

May 16 2017

WASHINGTON — President Trump asked the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, to shut down the federal investigation into Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, in an Oval Office meeting in February, according to a memo Mr. Comey wrote shortly after the meeting.

“I hope you can let this go,” the president told Mr. Comey, according to the memo.

The documentation of Mr. Trump’s request is the clearest evidence that the president has tried to directly influence the Justice Department and F.B.I. investigation into links between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia. Late Tuesday, Representative Jason Chaffetz, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, demanded that the F.B.I. turn over all “memoranda, notes, summaries and recordings” of discussions between Mr. Trump and Mr. Comey.

When and if did Donna Brazile stop taking Russian money for her work to help cause problems?

Just asking the question.

BTW after Ohio 2004 election Brazile was on record that nothing really happened and
for someone who was in the belly of the beast in Ohio in 2004 her words still piss me
off.

Rachel Tonight: Bowe Bergdahl got no prison time in part because of Trump

The judge in the case warned Trump not to talk about the case
but Trump went ahead and talked about the case and in giving the
sentence the judge wrote and or spoke about Trump's comments
about the case as a reason that Bergdahl got no prison time.

BTW typing from memory so I hope I got this right.
