Comey calls on Americans to 'use every breath we have' to oust Trump in 2020

Source: CNN

New York (CNN) Former FBI Director James Comey asked American voters Sunday night to end Donald Trump's presidency with a "landslide" victory for his opponent in 2020.

"All of us should use every breath we have to make sure the lies stop on January 20, 2021," Comey told an audience at the 92nd Street Y on New York City's Upper East Side. He all but begged Democrats to set aside their ideological differences and nominate the person best suited to defeating Trump in an election.

"I understand the Democrats have important debates now over who their candidate should be," Comey told MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace, "but they have to win. They have to win."

Over the course of more than an hour, Comey repeatedly derided Trump's character, again likening the atmosphere around the President to what he saw in prosecuting mafia figures and suggested that Trump's tweets could eventually amount to witness tampering. Asked if Trump might be an unindicted co-conspirator in some of the crimes recently described by special counsel Robert Mueller, Comey said he didn't know, "but if he's not there, he's certainly close."

Trump's bid for Sydney (Australia) casino 30 years ago rejected due to 'mafia connections'

(maybe this is old news to some of you, new to me)

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/aug/16/trumps-bid-for-sydney-casino-30-years-ago-rejected-due-to-mafia-connections

A bid by Donald Trump to build Sydney’s first casino was rejected 30 years ago after police expressed concerns about his links to the mafia.

News Corp revealed on Wednesday morning minutes of the New South Wales cabinet that show police had warned the state government against approving a 1986-87 bid by a Trump consortium to build and operate a casino in Darling Harbour.

Trump, in partnership with the Queensland construction company Kern, was one of four groups vying for the lucrative project. The NSW government dumped it from the process on 5 May 1987, along with two other bidders.

At the time, the state treasurer, Ken Booth, said he had received reports on the bids from the police board, the state’s Treasury, the Darling Harbour Authority, and an independent financial consultant.

Holocaust Survivor Reunites with the Family That Helped Hide Her from the Nazis After 73 Years

In November 2014, Charlotte Adelman received a message 70 years in the making — through Facebook. The young boy whose family had hid her from the Nazis in a cellar for nine months during the Holocaust wanted to reconnect.

But the French-born Adelman, who now lives in Scottsdale, Arizona, had “never forgotten” Alain Quatreville.

Adelman, 86, was only 11 in 1943 when her Jewish family was separated, and her father orchestrated a daring escape to Eastern France, where she lived in hiding with the Quatrevilles for nearly two years.

Quatreville’s message, Adelman says, left her “enthusiastic.”

WH Pool report of Trump this morning:

"I have another one for tomorrow that I’m going to be announcing at the Army-Navy game. I can give you a little hint: It will have to do with the joint chiefs of staff and succession.”

The new U.S. ambassador to Canada says that when it comes to climate change she believes in "both sides of the science."

Kelly Craft, who took up her position Monday, told the CBC's Rosemary Barton she appreciated all of the scientific evidence on climate change.

"I think that both sides have their own results, from their studies, and I appreciate and I respect both sides of the science," Craft told Barton.

She also said that while U.S. President Donald Trump's approach to climate change is different from the government of Canada's, both the U.S. and Canada have the same goal: to "better our environment and to maintain the environment."


I could say so many things, none of which would be kind. Ms. Craft, go back to your Republican fundraising job.
