Attorney General Wants Trump To Fire Him

The morning started with reports that president Donald Trump is very angry at attorney General Jeff Sessions. Trump is angry that Sessions refused to take control over the investigation into Russian hacking and campaign spying, and instead “recused” himself, or in other words, removed himself, from the investigation.  Trump was probably angry because he thought Sessions would be there to cover up Trump’s ties to Russia:

“I thought that was a pretty damning report for the president,” Miller said. “Why would the president care if Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russian investigation or not unless he wanted him to exert inappropriate influence over it. It shouldn’t really matter who’s leading the investigation unless you want the person in charge to somehow steer it in a way that benefits you.”

Article after article kept coming, talking about how pissed off Trump was at Sessions, and explaining that the Trump’s tweets about the “travel ban” were really a way for him to blow off some of the steam he has built up about Sessions.  Trump effectively strangled the justice department’s case before it ever had a chance of making it before the supreme court:

The discontent was on display on Monday in a series of stark early-morning postings on Twitter in which the president faulted his own Justice Department for its defense of his travel ban on visitors from certain predominantly Muslim countries.

After all the bad stories about Sessions, it then was leaked to the press that Sessions actually offered to resign.  He’s had enough with El Trumpo, and seems to be who Trump is taking out his anger on these days.  Could it be that El Trumpo is getting scared?

As for Sessions, he’s ready to retire and pursue his life-long dream!

Trump Humiliated by Comey Congressional Hearing

The big news out of the Comey congressional hearing today is that the FBI confirms it is now investigating ties between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russian intelligence services.  In response to the hearing, Donald Trump tweeted that Russia “did not influence” the electoral process.  It’s a flat out lie.  But more importantly Trump’s tweet appears to all but certainly confirm that Donald Trump operates the White House as  the American propaganda arm of Russia.  He has disrespected the White House and has cheapened the Office of Presidency.

Sadly, the Republican stooges during the congressional hearing could not even bring themselves to mention the bear in the room–Russia’s attempts to influence our presidential election.  Instead, all they could muster was a half-baked attempt to show that the leakers were the “bad guys” . . . . pay no attention to the leak itself, though, comrade Americans!  Representative Nunes the House Intelligence Committee chair humiliated himself, and showed himself to be a sick kiss up.  It’s almost as if the Russians have something on him as well.

It was also funny to watch Congressman Trey Gowdy put on his best self-righteous prosecutor show to be outraged at the release of information by members of the intelligence community.  Nevermind that the information proved that one of Trump’s top minions, Michael Flynn, was a pathological and public liar.  Nope, Gowdy was upset that classified information was leaked!  Nevermind that Gowdy himself incompetently leaked the name of a CIA source in 2015, thereby exposing classified information.  Do you think he will ask for himself to be arrested for releasing classified information?  Or maybe just for being a huge suck up and imbecile?

This follows a long line of recent examples of Trump pushing Russian propaganda.  Most recently, we had the Trump White House pushing the lie that the British were wiretapping Trump during the election.  When the British became upset, however, they had to backtrack significantly.  It seems our allies don’t like it when we tell lies about them.  Especially when the lies are manufactured and pushed by the Russians.

The underlying takeaway from the hearing today, however, is that Russia interfered with our elections.  The intent clearly was to hurt Hillary Clinton and to help Trump.

It is also clear that members of the Trump entourage were well aware of the hacking and were even aware of specific instances of hacking.  The best of example of this is Roger Stone, a core Trump flunky, who publicly began talking about the leaking of John Podesta’s (a Hillary flunky) e-mails before they were even leaked to the public.  In other words, a Russian source was obviously keeping Stone (if not Trump himself) updated on all of their hacking.

The FBI is on the record now as investigating the Trump campaign, and even Trump himself, for their involvement in the Russian hacking scandal.  Stay tuned.

 

 

 

 

 

Trump’s National Security Advisor is a Russian Spy

The first major scandal of the Trump administration is here. Some may argue that the immigration ban debacle was really the first scandal. That, arguably, is a legal fight. This, however, is a pure scandal with clear corruption, dishonesty and likely spying on the U.S. on behalf of a foreign government. Treason?

National security adviser Michael Flynn privately discussed U.S. sanctions against Russia with that country’s ambassador to the United States during the month before President Trump took office, contrary to public assertions by Trump officials, current and former U.S. officials said.

It all started when Trump’s national security adviser, Michael Flynn, had several phone calls with the Russian ambassador before Trump took office. When Flynn was asked if he talked to the ambassador about the sanctions against Russia, he lied through his teeth and said no. Vice President Pence then went on record saying they did not talk about the sanctions.

This week somebody in the intelligence community obviously approached Flynn and told him he was a lying sack of shit. Told him that they knew he talked to the Russian ambassador about Russian sanctions. Told him there was a transcript of his call with the Russian ambassador. Told him he can’t deny it any longer.

 Federal officials who have read the transcript of the call were surprised by Mr. Flynn’s comments, since he would have known that American eavesdroppers closely monitor such calls. They were even more surprised that Mr. Trump’s team publicly denied that the topics of conversation included sanctions.

After that conversation, Flynn started to backtrack, saying he couldn’t “remember” if he talked about the Russians sanctions. He couldn’t be “certain” the topic never came up when he talked repeatedly with the Russian ambassador.  What do you think?

Now Vice President Pence is angry that he stood up for Flynn’s lies.  Pence says “it’s a problem” that Flynn talked about the sanctions to the Russian ambassador even though Flynn originally said he did not talk about the sanctions.  It’s a problem that Pence believed him and stood up for him, even though Flynn was lying and was more interested in helping the Russian government than his own government.

Congressman Eric Swalwell has called for Flynn to be suspended, and Congressman Adam Schiff has called for Flynn to be fired.

Moscow Mike Flynn, the Russian spy Trump put in as the United States National Security advisor, a paid-for shill on the Russian propaganda channel “RT,” and who sat next to Putin at an RT event, who faced consistent concerns that he is just a Russian agent, is Trump’s first scandal.  And everyone, except for Trump, saw it coming.
