America’s worst-ever president* is starting to lose what little is left of his demented mind as the pressure from his corruption scandals continue so he’s desperately creating distractions – and failing miserably.
The mind-boggling corruption of Trump Inc. article from The Week. –
America’s most corrupt-ever president* is drowning in his own self-inflicted cesspool of corruption that just keeps growing exponentially:
“Another week in the Donald Trump presidency, another handful of days so stuffed full of sordid and highly complicated stories that even journalists have trouble keeping track of what’s going on.
But the thread tying all the latest news together — from Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s sundry exploits, to Trump’s ongoing presidential profiteering, to the Russia investigation — is corruption. The Trump administration will surely go down as one of the most — if not the most — rotten in American history.
Let’s roll this most recent bit of tape. Ronan Farrow, who has become one of the signature investigative reporters of the Trump presidency, revealed at The New Yorker why somebody leaked the notorious financial reports of Michael Cohen showing that he had been given fantastically large sums of money from AT&T, Novartis, and a Russian oligarch-connected LLC. This information came from a “suspicious activity report” (SAR), which is something a bank files with the Treasury Department when they suspect something fishy is going on with a customer.
It turns out the source is a law enforcement official, and he released the SAR after he discovered that two more SARs detailing $3 million of additional similar transactions had somehow vanished from the Treasury Department’s database. The source told Farrow that he feared that someone within Treasury was withholding the documents for political reasons, and thus released the one he had…”

Trump personally pushed postmaster general to double rates on Amazon, other firms article from The Los Angeles Times. –
Echoing Nixon – abusing the power of his office – to bring down personal enemies is going to prove disastrous for our dimwitted dip shit:
“President Trump has personally pushed U.S. Postmaster General Megan Brennan to double the rate the Postal Service charges Amazon.com and other firms to ship packages, according to three people familiar with their conversations, a dramatic move that probably would cost these companies billions of dollars.
Brennan so far has resisted Trump’s demand, explaining in multiple conversations this year and last that these arrangements are bound by contracts and must be reviewed by a regulatory commission, the three people said. She has told the president that the Amazon relationship is beneficial for the Postal Service and gave him slides that showed the variety of companies, in addition to Amazon, that also partner for deliveries.
Despite these presentations, Trump has continued to level criticism at Amazon. And last month, his critiques culminated in the signing of an executive order mandating a government review of the financially strapped Postal Service that could lead to major changes in the way it charges Amazon and others for package delivery.
Few U.S. companies have drawn Trump’s ire as much as Amazon, which has rapidly grown to be the second-largest U.S. company in market capitalization. For more than three years, Trump has fumed publicly and privately about the giant commerce and services company and its founder Jeff Bezos, who is also the owner of the Washington Post…”

Our Twitter tyrant is losing his mind over his ongoing Russia / corruption scandals as revealed by his latest meltdown:
“Trump took to Twitter and had himself a Sunday morning meltdown over reports that the Trump campaign was also meeting with Middle Eastern countries about illegal interference in the 2016 election.
Things are really getting ridiculous. The Failing and Crooked (but not as Crooked as Hillary Clinton) @nytimes has done a long & boring story indicating that the World’s most expensive Witch Hunt has found nothing on Russia & me so now they are looking at the rest of the World!

TRUMP GOES NUCLEAR AFTER REPORT HIS SON ENTERTAINED ILLEGAL CAMPAIGN AID article from Vanity Fair. –
Trump had another conniption fit on Twitter when he melted down, but he didn’t refute the story:
“Donald Trump flew into a frenzy online Sunday morning after The New York Times published what appears to be a bombshell: the president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., didn’t just meet with Russians promising dirt on Hillary Clinton. In a separate, previously unreported meeting, Trump Jr. also met with an Israeli social media specialist, an emissary for two Arab princes, and a private military contractor offering potentially illegal data services to the Trump campaign:
Erik Prince, the private security contractor and the former head of Blackwater, arranged the meeting, which took place on Aug. 3, 2016. The emissary, George Nader, told Donald Trump Jr. that the princes who led Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were eager to help his father win election as president. The social media specialist, Joel Zamel, extolled his company’s ability to give an edge to a political campaign; by that time, the firm had already drawn up a multimillion-dollar proposal for a social media manipulation effort to help elect Mr. Trump.
The company, which employed several Israeli former intelligence officers, specialized in collecting information and shaping opinion through social media.
It is not clear whether anything came of the meeting. But according to the Times, “Donald Trump Jr. responded approvingly … and after those initial offers of help, Mr. Nader was quickly embraced as a close ally by Trump campaign advisers—meeting frequently with Jared Kushner, Mr. Trump’s son-in-law, and Michael T. Flynn, who became the president’s first national security adviser.” Later, Nader allegedly paid Zamel as much as $2 million…”

President Trump is his own wiretap article from The Los Angeles Times. –
How ignorantly tweeting his stupidity and lies is going to end up coming back to bite our big Orange turd ball in the ass:
“Watergate happened in audio. Bless his patriotic soul, President Nixon generously bugged his own offices and tapped his own phones. It was Nixon’s own unmistakable voice, conspiring on dirty tricks and putative obstruction of justice, that checkmated him.
?President Trump is also his own wiretap, and he may yet checkmate himself. But he uses another medium, another form of speech and another genre to wreck himself. Trump’s chronic self-incrimination — most of it, anyway — is not audio; it exists in tweets and on TV.
From his televised request for more Kremlin hacks — “Russia, if you’re listening” — to his NBC confession that he fired the FBI director to snuff out the Russia investigation, Trump makes sure to get just about every micron of his venality on the record.
And nowhere does he do it more flagrantly than on Twitter. One example: The syntax and content of “No Collusion or Obstruction (other than I fight back),” from last month, was read by the journalist Jonathan Chait and others as a tacit confession that Trump was saying that he did, under the rubric of fighting back, obstruct justice…”

Trump Knew Last Year That The FBI Was Investigating His Campaign For Illegal Middle Eastern Election Interference article from PoliticusUSA. –
Using a conspiracy theory of someone spying on his campaign as a distraction won’t bode well for our demented delusionist:

Julia Ainsley of NBC News said on MSNBC:…”

Donald Trump Comes Unglued Amid Growing Pressure From Bob Mueller article from New York Magazine. –
Apparently the pressure from Mueller’s investigations is really getting to our dysfunctional dumb ass:
“When the Senate Judiciary Committee convened last month to approve a bill to protect Robert Mueller, a number of Republicans opposed to the proposal clung to a wild claim: They said they felt bound by the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s dissenting opinion in a case that upheld a law, since lapsed, that created an independent counsel similar in spirit but not in kind to the special counsel now leading the Russia probe. Scalia’s main point was that the president was supreme over the Executive branch, with “complete control” over criminal prosecutions and investigations. That is, he could order them shut down. Or fire the prosecutor in charge. Or demand that a new criminal inquiry be opened if he so wished. No other justice accepted Scalia’s position.
And yet that outlier theory, which remains all the rage in conservative legal circles, seems to be the driving force behind Donald Trump’s latest order to the Department of Justice, via Twitter, to “look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled” figures associated with the Trump campaign for partisan reasons. And into whether the Obama administration had anything to do with this so-called infiltration, which was so secretive and damaging that the president never bothers to mention that no aspect of it was ever disclosed in the lead-up to the presidential election.
Thought leaders and lawyers on Fox News and elsewhere — which is to say, Trump’s whisperers — have for months been beating the drum that the president can do no wrong in his dealings with law enforcement functions and functionaries: He couldn’t possibly obstruct justice in dismissing James Comey or even the special counsel because firing officials is a core executive function. He can’t be indicted at all while in office because that could destabilize the Executive branch. And forget about being subpoenaed to testify — that’s out of constitutional bounds, too.
The Justice Department as a Trump plaything is just an extension of the same rejected Scalia reasoning. “A president can also order the termination of an investigation by the Justice Department or F.B.I. at any time and for any reason,” Trump’s lawyers wrote to Mueller in a letter described to the New York Times. That’s categorically not the law. It is just one big, pointless trial balloon — in the same way Trump’s delusion that President Obama had ordered a wiretap of Trump Tower to damage him politically was a baseless accusation unmoored from reality. In another tweet posted early on Saturday, Trump all but confirmed that the reason he wants his own DOJ and FBI investigated is the goading by House Intelligence Committee members who want to see classified documents related to a counterintelligence informant revealed to have assisted the FBI in the early stages of the Russia investigation. This alleged plant, which Trump insisted was appointed for “political purposes,” is simply the latest bogeyman Trump and his congressional enablers are peddling, in hopes that public sentiment against Mueller will begin to sour…”
