Chronicling the misadventures of our minority-elect President’s alternate reality, alternative facts and the miscreants that comprise his administration so you don’t have to:
Trump’s Treason begins today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president* as connections are made between Russia helping him get ‘elected’ and the Treason he committed – more than once – with Ukraine and China in asking them to interfere is going to come back and haunt him, Donnie is not above the law – regardless of his delusions – and now his tax returns are in danger of becoming public which will further implode his already failed presidency, desperately labeling his enemies as treasonous would be comical were it not for the fact that Trump is the most treasonous of them all and he has no idea of what the definition of Treason is, the GOP controlled Senate just confirmed Donnie’s worst fear – Russia did help him ‘win’ the election, meaning that he is indeed an illegitimate president*, the threat of impeachment is taking its toll on the Donald as his meltdowns keep coming faster and more furious, why it’s time to remove all the pieces of shit Donnie has appointed to the courts and much more.
DONALD TRUMP’S UKRAINE SCANDAL HAS ITS ROOTS IN RUSSIA article from The New Yorker.
The amount of foreign help Trump had getting ‘elected’ coupled with the Treason he has committed asking Ukraine and China to interfere is going to come back and bite him bigly.

‘Trump is scared to death’: Legal experts weigh in on federal judge dismissing president’s lawauit against Manhattan DA article from Alternet.
It’s easy to forget all the rest of Trump’s corruption with the Ukraine scandal swallowing his failed presidency whole, but his highness just found out that he can’t hide his tax returns – which is going to open a whole new can of worms into the investigation into his corruption:
This is huge. Federal judge dismisses Trump’s effort to keep Manhattan DA from getting his taxes. Trump can appeal. The issue will be whether he has to comply during the appeal. https://t.co/8SJHbbQJN6— Joyce Alene (@JoyceWhiteVance) October 7, 2019
Trump Is Calling Literally Everything Treason Now article from Splinter News.
The irony of the most Treasonous president* in U.S. history trying to claim his enemies are treasonous would be hysterical were it not for the fact that he has no idea what the definition of Treason is:
“No one, except for the scientists who hopefully get to study his cottage cheese brain, can really say with any certainty what’s going on in Donald Trump’s head. So all we can really go off is what actually comes out of his mouth or his fingers, and based on that, I can only guess that he likes the way “treason” rolls off the tongue and so he’s hellbent on using it against essentially everyone who’s ever wronged him.
That isn’t the definition of treason, of course, but so far Trump has used it to describe the Ukraine whistleblower, then House Intelligence committee chairman, and now, in a late Sunday tweet, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi:
….This makes Nervous Nancy every bit as guilty as Liddle’ Adam Schiff for High Crimes and Misdemeanors, and even Treason. I guess that means that they, along with all of those that evilly “Colluded” with them, must all be immediately Impeached!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 7, 2019
The worst punishment for being convicted of treason, of course, isn’t just being “impeached,” but rather being killed by the state. Trump knows this. So the fact that he’s now using it to describe Nancy Pelosi, who had to be dragged to an impeachment inquiry kicking and screaming, is an indicator that it’s just a thing he thinks all of his political opponents are doing whenever they try to hold him accountable for his actions. (In 2018, Trump also floated it as a descriptor for Democrats who didn’t stand or clap for him during the State of the Union, which is, you know, fascist.)…”

We’re witnessing what happens to foreign policy when an illegitimate, reckless amateur president* who lives in the land of delusion acts on his own impulse.

Allowing Trump to get away with all his lies and crimes is unacceptable and he and his enablers need to be held accountable.
Trump And Pompeo Admit Guilt By Refusing To Turn Over Ambassador’s Text Message On Ukraine article from PoliticusUSA.
Obstructing justice and withholding evidence while admitting guilt isn’t going to work out well for Trump or the rest of the morons that are helping him cover everything up:

Trump Is Making a Huge Mess and No One’s Happy article from Splinter News.
Which is not surprising and only fitting given that Trump in the White House is also a yuge mistake:
“Less than 24 hours after threatening to “totally destroy and obliterate” the economy of Turkey if they dare challenge his “great and unmatched wisdom” following his decision to allow them to invade Northern Syria, President Donald Trump praised the country on Tuesday as “good to deal with” and an “important member in good standing of NATO.”
…..good health, at my request, Pastor Brunson, who had many years of a long prison term remaining. Also remember, and importantly, that Turkey is an important member in good standing of NATO. He is coming to the U.S. as my guest on November 13th. #ENDENDLESSWARS— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 8, 2019
Trump’s about-face comes as more details begin to leak about just what led to the White House’s total abandonment of its Kurdish allies in Syria, and why the president seems so keen to heap lavish praise on Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
According to a National Security Council source who spoke with Newsweek on Monday, Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Northern Syria followed a Sunday phone call between the two leaders, in which Erdogan “rolled” the president who so frequently boasts of being a master negotiator…”
White House Knew Trump Broke The Law and Immediately Started Ukraine Cover-Up article from PoliticusUSA.
It appears that people in the Trump White House are turning on him – and worrying about going to prison for his fraudulent ass:
CNN:Aides to Trump scrambled in the aftermath of his July 25 phone call with Ukraine’s leader both to alert lawyers of their concerns and to contain the damage.— Shimon Prokupecz (@ShimonPro) October 8, 2019
Unsettled aides also immediately began quizzing each other about whether they should alert senior officials.

The Donald’s worst fear just became a reality – the GOP-led Senate concluded that Russia did indeed help him get ‘elected,’ meaning that he is indeed an illegitimate president*.
Trump’s impeachment obstruction requires a maximal response article from The Week.
Trump should have been locked up long ago, but now he’s making it really easy and it’s going to haunt him.
President Trump is at war with the rule of law. This won’t end well article from The Guardian.
The delusional dip shit in the White House actually believes he’s above the law and he’s going to find out the hard way that he is not:
“Do Americans still have a government? I do not know. What I do know is that President Trump and the upper echelons of the executive branch are at war with the legislative branch, the rule of law, the constitution, federal civil servants and the American people. It’s a conflict that pulls in many directions, and if the president threatened civil war the other day as something that could happen if he doesn’t get his way, we can regard the ordinary state of things as a low-intensity civil war or a slo-mo coup that’s been going on from the beginning. Tuesday’s White House refusal to cooperate with the impeachment inquiry only escalates their defiance and their chaos.
The chaos takes so many forms. Innumerable stories have made it clear that even the president’s own aides and cabinet members treat him like a captive bear or a person having a psychotic breakdown – like someone unstable who must be kept from harming himself and others. They have done that by heaping on the flattery, and by warping and limiting the information he receives, and often by doing their best to prevent his directives from being realized.
The New York Times recently reported on a March meeting about the border. According to aides, Trump “suggested that they shoot migrants in the legs to slow them down”. When he was told that wasn’t allowed, he ordered that the border be closed. That set off a “frenzied week of presidential rages, round-the-clock staff panic and far more White House turmoil than was known at the time. By the end of the week, the seat-of-the-pants president had backed off his threat but had retaliated with the beginning of a purge of the aides who had tried to contain him.”
This is the kind of story we’ve become used to – outrages and viciousness and inanity and all – but it’s worth reading another way, as a story about a bear lashing out at whatever’s around him and gobbling up the scraps they feed him while he is still chained to the wall. When we refer to the “president” we really mean whatever ad hoc group of people with proximity is manipulating him, lying to him, or preventing him from knowing or doing something. They sometimes prevent harm or illegality. But this is only half of the administrative “team.” The other half consists of those serving his personal agenda, and in this respect the federal government has become a subsidiary of Trump Incorporated…”

Trump is making impeachment even easier as it turns out he ordered his cabinet to deal with his personal lawyer on Ukraine – which makes things even worse for him and impossible to defend the indefensible.
Former ethics czar warns impeachment letter ‘mistakes Trump for a king’ article from Roll Call.
The letter sent by our wannabe dictator’s shyster legal staff to the House of Representatives regarding Trump’s impending impeachment is hysterical, though completely devoid of legal stature and more of a political or fundraising press release:
“ANALYSIS | Experts agree a letter the White House sent to House Democrats stating a refusal to cooperate with their impeachment inquiry is legally flimsy and is mostly about politics.
“Put simply, you seek to overturn the results of the 2016 election and deprive the American people of the President they have freely chosen,” White House Counsel Pat Cipollone wrote in a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Intelligence Chairman Adam B. Schiff and two other senior Democrats.
The White House’s top lawyer told the Democrats their “unprecedented actions have left the President with no choice,” telling them he will not cooperate with the probe “under these circumstances.”
But legal experts quickly digested the letter’s constitutional claims — or, as they saw them, the lack thereof…”

Trump Has A Complete Mental Implosion During Profanity-Laced Self-Therapy Rally In Minnesota article from PoliticusUSA.
During yet another of his bull shit rallies used to sucker the minority of moronic minions that support him – at an event that wasn’t nearly sold out despite his claims as evidenced by all the empty seats – Trump had another meltdown while lying and complaining about being held accountable for his crimes:

Trump makes at least 12 false claims at his longest rally article from CNN.
The Don loves his campaign rallies because it allows him to spew his vitriolic bull shit and lies unchecked to small groups of idiots that are more stupid than he is:
“Washington (CNN) President Donald Trump held the longest campaign rally of his presidency on Thursday night, speaking for more than 101 minutes in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Trump made fewer demonstrably false claims than he often does when he gives speeches of great length. This time, he traded some of his inaccurate favorites for some dubious “sir” anecdotes that we can’t definitively prove inaccurate.
But we’ve found at least 12 false claims, and we’re not done checking yet. As we continue to pore over the transcript, here’s an initial list:
Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky…”
Opinion: With impeachment looming, Trump turns to smoke and mirrors article from The Los Angeles Times.

Less Than 24 Hours After Saying ‘Time to Bring ‘Em Home,’ Trump Orders 1,800 Troops to Saudi Arabia article from Common Dreams.
Trump lied about his reason for allowing Turkey to slaughter Kurds and said it was time to bring the troops home, but less than 24 hours later he sends more to defend his dictator idol in Saudi Arabia:
Remember when Donald Trump tweeted that he was “trying to end the endless wars?” That was yesterday.— Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) October 11, 2019

Trump Judge Wants To Severely Limit Congress’ Ability To Probe POTUS Misconduct article from Talking Points Memo.
Also known as yet more evidence as to why it’s time to remove Trump and all the pieces of shit he appointed to the courts, including the ‘Supreme’ Court:
“If a Trump-appointed appellate judge could have her way, Congress could only investigate presidential misconduct if it formally opened an impeachment inquiry — and went through an extensive process that included a full House vote.
For now, the views that Judge Neomi Rao expressed in a dissent Friday will have no effect in a dispute between House Democrats and President Trump over the House’s subpoena of his accounting firm for his financial records. The appellate panel on which she sat voted 2-1 to uphold the subpoena.
But her dissenting opinion laid out an extraordinarily narrow of view of when and how Congress can probe whether the President or other executive officials acted illegally — a view that grows even starker when one considers that the Justice Department has barred itself from prosecuting a sitting president.
She claimed that if it is issuing a subpoena as part of an investigation of presidential misconduct, Congress must first open a impeachment inquiry. She also suggested that the courts have the ability to decide what constitutes an impeachable offense…”

Trump Humiliates HImself By Threatening To Sue Pelosi and Schiff Over Impeachment article from PoliticusUSA.
Trump thinks his buddies on the thoroughly corrupt ‘Supreme’ Court are going to save his ignorant ass but he is grossly mistaken:
“In a Saturday evening speech, President Donald Trump threatened to sue Speaker Pelosi and Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff over impeachment.
Trump said, “I told my lawyers I said sue them anyway. He’s got immunity. We can’t sue them for that. I said sue them anyway, even if we lose the American public will understand, and sue Nancy Pelosi, or maybe we should just impeach them because they’re liars.”
