‘The lie to end all lies’: Nicolle Wallace goes line-by-line in epic fact-check of Trump article from The Raw Story. –
With none of his lies, bluster or bull shit distracting from the truth about his endless corruption and ignorance working to fool the masses – not the minority of minions that still support him, Trump is imploding at a record pace.
Donald Trump’s telling temper tantrum article from CNN. –
Donnie’s inability to handle – or tell – the truth and accept facts that don’t pertain to his alternate reality are becoming really problematic for him:
“(CNN) – If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to see President Donald Trump do a dramatic reading of some of his angrier tweets about special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and congressional Democrats, wonder no longer! Because Trump did exactly that in a hastily-arranged press conference in the Rose Garden on Wednesday afternoon.
Standing at a podium decorated with a variety of facts and figures on the Mueller probe — and with the words “NO COLLUSION” and “NO OBSTRUCTION” featured prominently — Trump went off on Democrats (and the media) for, among other things, their alleged inability to accept the fact that he had done nothing wrong in regard to Russia or Mueller’s investigation into that country’s attempted interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Here’s the key bit:
“I came here to do a on infrastructure meeting with Democrats — not really thinking that they wanted to do infrastructure or anything else other than investigate. And I just saw that Nancy Pelosi, just before our meeting, made a statement that we believe that ‘the President of the United States is engaged in a cover-up.’ It turns out I’m the most — I think most of you would agree to this — I’m the most transparent president probably in the history of this country.”…”

Internet scorches Trump and Barr’s latest scheme to go after Mueller and FBI: ‘There’s no way this ends well’ article from The Raw Story. –
Donnie’s ignorant dipshittery is going to hasten the end of his already corrupt failed presidency:
“On Thursday, President Donald Trump ordered the intelligence community to submit to Attorney General William Barr’s investigation of why the FBI investigated Russia and the Trump campaign — and announced that Barr will have full authority to declassify any sensitive information that arises from this investigation.
The move marks yet another attempt by the president to undermine public confidence in the Russia investigation, which recently concluded with special counsel Robert Mueller outlining ten potential acts of obstruction of justice for Congress to review.
In no time, social media exploded with outrage over Trump’s push to weaponize the Department of Justice and retaliate against a legal threat to himself:
Some cool things about this:
1) Selectively declassifying things can be very misleading
2) Barr likes to deliberately mislead the public to help Trump
3) Reporters are aware of (2)
4) When (1) happens then despite (3) Barr’s deceptions will generate credulous headlines. https://t.co/UDJnrpfcSs

Trump claims to be an ‘extremely stable genius,’ then proves otherwise article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –
Trump’s claims of being an ‘extremely stable genius’ are nothing more than fake news from a fake president*, as he has repeatedly shown:
“There was a point early last year in which Donald Trump’s behavior was so erratic, a reporter felt compelled to ask White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during an official briefing whether Americans should be “concerned about the president’s mental fitness.” She initially responded by trying to change the subject.
Trump responded soon after by publishing a series of tweets in which the Republican described himself as “like, really smart.” He added that he’s “a very stable genius.”
Yesterday, during an event ostensibly about agriculture and trade, the president upgraded his self-assessment: he’s not just a “very stable genius”; he’s now an “extremely stable genius.” Trump then proceeded to prove the opposite.
Sometimes even the president of the United States needs somebody to vouch for him…”

The Last Thing Trump Wants Is To Run For Reelection As An Impeached President article from PoliticusUSA. –
Impeaching the president because of all the crimes he has committed is a no-brainer and putting it off because the corrupt U.S. Senate won’t impeach him is no excuse and won’t fail because the majority is well aware of how guilty he is despite his bogus claims of vindication:
“One of the key arguments that some Democratic lawmakers and voters have made against moving forward with impeachment is that, even if the House of Representatives impeached Donald Trump, the GOP-led Senate would almost certainly acquit him.
As a result, they argue that Trump would be able to hit the campaign trail in 2020 to claim complete and total vindication.
The only problem with that argument, of course, is that Trump has already been claiming vindication, despite the crimes laid out in Robert Mueller’s report, and the American people haven’t bought into it.

Trump’s Public Enemies List Is an Impeachable Offense article from The Daily Beast. –
Illegally using his illegitimate office to take revenge on those that oppose him is a crime that will take both Trump and Barr down:
“Long before becoming president, Donald Trump called for the jailing of his adversaries. Aided by Attorney General William Barr, he may now actually be training the full force of federal law enforcement against his enemies, real or perceived. Unlike Richard Nixon, who acted in secret, Trump is corrupting the justice system openly and publicly.
The seriousness of such a presidential abuse of power, and its potential for undermining the constitutional order, could well surpass any of the crimes detailed in the Mueller Report. Indeed, the Congress long ago recognized that such misconduct can merit impeachment.
Trump’s desire to investigate the investigators who uncovered the Russian plot to elect him president has taken on a special urgency since the release of the Mueller Report, with Trump repeatedly accusing government officials of “treason,” and the White House declaring: “This whole thing was a TAKEDOWN ATTEMPT at the President of the United States.”
On Thursday night, after Trump had spent days excoriating the purportedly “treasonous” investigators by name, he announced he had granted Barr the “full and complete authority” to declassify documents relating to the Russia probe. The White House also stated that Trump had directed intelligence agencies to “quickly and fully” cooperate with the investigation into the investigation…”

Donald is freaking out because his endless corruption is resulting in endless investigations and he’s not handling it well – so again, the best way to put an end to them is to start an impeachment inquiry regardless of the fact that his equally treasonous cohorts in the U.S. Senate will not do anything about it, but it’ll speak volumes to the majority that didn’t ‘elect’ him.

Trump is turning every intelligence agency into an instrument of his private revenge article from The Daily Kos. –
More on how the Don illegally using our ‘Justice’ system against anyone who opposes him – which is the majority of this country – is going to come back to haunt him:
“Donald Trump has authorized Attorney General William Barr to sift through the classified documents of every U.S. intelligence agency looking for material he can use against anyone he perceives as an opponent. This action represents a weaponizing of the entire intelligence network, in essence turning all of the FBI, CIA, NSA and more into an opposition research organization.
Not only does this action threaten the integrity of our government, it also challenges the security of the services involved. In presenting unilateral authority for Barr to declassify material as he pleases, Trump places in danger both the processes and the assets of the agencies involved. From techniques, to technologies, to sources, to the most sacred item of any intelligence agency—the names and locations of agents in the field—there is no aspect of national security unchallenged by the action Trump has taken.
When Representative Devin Nunes attempts to persuade Trump to selectively declassify a much smaller set of material in order to support the pro-Trump report he was writing at the time, directors of every service involved appealed to Congress to prevent their release, warning against the dangers the action could create. But Republicans greased the path that Trump has now taken, voting repeatedly to allow the release of material that the agencies believed a hazard to existing and future operations.
One of the greatest impacts of that action has been a rapid decline in trust by agencies of allied nations. From the Nunes fiasco, to watching Trump hand over classified information to the Russian ambassador, to Jared Kushner’s multiple trips to Saudi Arabia to gift Mohammed bin Salman with a list of those people he most needed to murder, agencies around the world have been given reason after reason to restrict the flow of information from their agencies to the United States. With the action now taken by Trump to end the discretion of agencies in the name of revenge, that door will slam shut. This is the end of the “five-eyes” agreement. The end of open, active cooperation. The end of multi-national operations…”

The Only Reason Mueller Didn’t Indict Trump Was He Couldn’t article from PoliticusUSA. –

Mueller’s statement makes it clear: Trump committed crimes, and impeachment is the only option article from The Daily Kos. –
Trump is guilty as hell and the majority that doesn’t support his corrupt, ignorant ass are fully aware of it despite his and his GOP enablers’ lies:
“Robert Mueller appeared for less than fifteen minutes on Wednesday morning to give a statement that included the announcement that his office’s investigation was complete, that he was resigning from his position as special counsel, and that the special counsel office was to be closed. But Mueller did not restrict himself to providing a hat tip to his staff; he recapped his office’s report—and in the process emphasized the items that he thought were most important. In a way, this statement was Mueller’s own summary of the report.
Mueller opened his statement by making it clear that Russia had conducted two separate operations—the hacking and distribution of stolen materials, and a social media campaign—not just for the purpose of interfering in the election, but also “to interfere with a presidential candidate.”
When he moved on to discussing the report itself, Mueller critically did not use the word “collusion” or make any statement absolving Donald Trump or the Trump campaign, except to say that there was “insufficient evidence to charge a broader conspiracy.”
Then, moving on to obstruction, Mueller placed fresh emphasis on the actions that Trump took to interfere with the investigation. “If we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so. We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime.” Mueller elaborated on the fact that he could not consider charges against Trump entirely because of DOJ policy against charging a sitting executive. Because of that policy, he said, “we could not consider” charging Trump…”
