So the birther bastard wants to unify us.

First step would be for him to resign. Otherwise, forget about it.

Wish one of the Dems would invite Stormy Daniels to the SOTU.

House Intelligence Committee Votes to Release FBI Memo, Dem Says

Source: The Daily Beast

he House Intelligence Committee’s Republican majority voted Monday to release an explosive memo alleging abuses by the FBI agents investigating collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, the panel’s senior Democrat said. “According to the majority, the FBI is under investigation and the Department of Justice," Rep. Adam Schiff said. He said Republicans voted to release their memo but not release a report by Democrats on the same subject. He called Republicans' vote a partisan move designed to hamper the Russia investigation.

The Plot Against America by Franklin Foer - The Atlantic, March 2018 issue

Decades before he ran the Trump campaign, Paul Manafort’s pursuit of foreign cash and shady deals laid the groundwork for the corruption of Washington.


Look for Mr. Muelller to put him away for a very long time.


The Answer to Whether Trump Obstructed Justice Now Seems Clear

Most white-collar prosecutions turn on the issue of criminal intent. These cases involve behavior that would, in ordinary circumstances, be totally legal—if not for the intent of the defendant.

The golf-dues matter was obviously trivial; the law firm’s representation of Kushner, which did not involve Mueller at all, could only have biased the special counsel in favor of the President’s family; and Trump’s willingness to interview Mueller for the F.B.I. position showed how much the President trusted Mueller, not that he believed the former F.B.I. director harbored any animosity toward him.

McGahn recognized the key fact—that Trump wanted to fire Mueller for the wrong reasons. Trump wanted to fire Mueller because his investigation was threatening to him.

This was an improper purpose, and McGahn clearly saw that the same improper purpose underlay Trump’s determination to fire Mueller. So McGahn issued the ultimatum that prompted the President to back down.

Abundant questions remain about Trump’s fate in the Mueller investigation. Can or will a sitting President be indicted? What, if anything, will the House of Representatives do with respect to its impeachment powers? In what forum and format will the public see the full range of the evidence against the President? But on perhaps the most important question of all—whether the President of the United States committed the crime of obstruction of justice—the answer now seems clear.


Rep. Hakeem Jeffries: Obstruction case "growing stronger by the day".

Nikki Haley denies Trump affair rumors: 'It is absolutely not true'

Source: CNN

The rumor is being fueled by "Fire and Fury" author Michael Wolff, who teased in an interview with Bill Maher last week that his book contained a clue as to someone with whom Trump was having an affair. Wolff said he was "absolutely sure" the claim was true but it is "so incendiary that I just didn't have the ultimate proof."

A line in the book that says Trump has been spending "a notable amount of private time with Haley" on Air Force One pointed readers to Haley.

I doubt it unless drumpf calls it fake news.

Three Stormy Daniels questions.

What are the concequences for her if she breaks the silence agreement with drumpf?

Seems like someone out there, like a Larry Flint, would pay her a lot more for her story than anything drumpf could get from her in court.

By the way, if he did sue her for breach of contract wouldn't it be a public admission by him of the whole affair?

What am I missing here? Thanks.

How 'bout a little mood music for drumpfkins?

ICE detained a Michigan doctor who left Poland in 1979, and his family wants to know why

Dr. Lukasz R. Niec was five years old when his parents fled Poland with their two children in 1979, his sister says.

Now he's a respected doctor in Michigan, with a family of his own. He was enjoying a day off at his lakeside home near Kalamazoo last Tuesday when US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents took him away in handcuffs.

Now, his family fears he faces deportation to a country he's never known.

"He doesn't even speak Polish," his sister, Iwona Niec-Villaire, told CNN affiliate WOOD. "He doesn't know anyone, he wouldn't know where to go." Niec received a temporary green card and later became a lawful permanent resident, the Washington Post reported.
