The Trump Presidency

Recommended Posts

For an administration that thinks U.S. funds approved by Congress are their personal funds to withhold and that withholding funds is "business as usual," I'm willing to bet Ukraine wasn't the first quid pro quo.

3 NSC officials will be participating in the impeachment inquiry next week.  One is a former deputy of Bolton and the other two are current officials.   There are discussions that Bolton might be testifying in the next 2 weeks as well.  I would expect the inquiry to go public after his testimony.

Earlier this week, Trump's lawyer argued that he could not be arrested for murder while he is in office even if the entire incident were caught on tape and the evidence was undeniable; the crime could not be investigated until he was either impeached or left office. Do any Republicans on this forum care to defend that position?

 

Quote

President Trump once famously declared he could “stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody” and not lose any votes. Now an attorney representing him claims he couldn’t even be criminally investigated for such a crime. It came during an appeals court hearing to decide whether the Manhattan district attorney can get his hands on Trump’s tax returns to investigate potential fraud. Trump’s legal team is trying to quash the subpoena by arguing a sitting president can’t face criminal charges. Judge Denny Chin asked if that would even apply to the Fifth Avenue scenario. “Nothing could be done? That’s your position?” Chin asked. Lawyer William Consovoy replied: “That’s correct.” He explained that a president can only face consequences once they have left office.

The ruling is a victory for Democrats in their effort to investigate whether Trump obstructed the long-running Russia probe.

Doonesbury postulated a Trump presidency 20 years ago. Nah, too far-fetched....

John Solomon, the former Hill contributor who regularly wrote about conspiracy theories, has the same lawyers as the Ukrainian Oligarch Dmitry Firtash.  The lawyers, Joe diGenova and Victoria Toensing, also have been working with Giuliani to manufacture dirt on the Bidens.  Another of their clients, Lev Parnas who was arrested trying to leave the country and is charged with felonies related to campaign finance violations, also was closely linked to John Solomon.  ProPublica reported Parnas helped Solomon with interviews and translations for the stories being published on The Hill.  Joe diGenova also was briefly part of Trump's legal team during the special counsel era. 

 

Of course Solomon never reported Parnas' involvement or that he often quoted his lawyers without ever mentioning they were his lawyers.  People listening to Trump and his echo chamber need to realize a lot of what's coming out is propaganda from people conspiring with people under indictment and/or investigation.

 

*oh ya, and Victoria Toensing's son, Brady, got hired by the DOJ's Office of Legal Policy in June ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Trump, again, turned this into a Trump infomercial.  He could not thank the military and those who risked their lives.  Such an embarrassment.  

 

As I always say with Trump:

  1. There is Trumps version of the events
  2. There is the media's version of the events
  3. There is the truth!

 

Generally, Trumps version never matches the truth or the media.

I don't think any of these cities/communities will be reimbursed.

So taxpayers - regardless of political affiliation - will be on the hook for a TRUMP event.

 

Are conservatives and tea party members would be OUTRAGED?

The cords...the cords...  LOL  The photo is on Typical Trump. It shows his Obama Envy (Obama and Clinton live in his head rent free)

 

It's just another lie, we can add to a long list of lies (some which include): 

Central Park Five

Birth certificates

The Border Wall (not the one around Colorado)

Tax returns

Crowd sizes

Chain Migration

Russian Election Interference 

Porn stars/Porn star payments

Puerto Rico/USVI Natural disasters

Russian election interference

Former employee | Anyone who contradicts him

The Environment

Coal

White Supremacist AKA Fine people

 

He lies today and two weeks later, "alternative facts" AKA lies, start to fall apart.  Remember, there is ALWAYS a tweet, that proves he's a hypocrite and lying, which become an omission of guilt.

Even Vlad The Impaler knows Trump is a joke, and isn't 1/10th of the man that Obama is....

Not sure if it was shared yet, but the Times reported this weekend that Trump's decision to withdraw troops out of Syria threw the Pentagon's plan to raid al-Baghdadi's residence into doubt.  The raid was carried out successfully in spite of Trump's actions, not because of him.

 

Amazing work by our military despite the bumbling buffoon they have as Commander.

And a longer video of the above for more context (it takes a little over one minute to get to Trump's introduction)

That's pretty funny. You get to hear "real America" when you can't pick the audience. Speaking of "real America"....
