Trump is mad that “Sneaky Dianne Feinstein” debunked a key Republican theory on Trump and Russia
Donald_McPoyle: He very nearly tweeted “Sneaky Jew”.
- Dubious Dianne
- Dirty Dianne
- Devious Dianne
- Disruptive Dianne
Motherf–ker could have gone with any of these for alliteration and he goes with “Sneaky”
darksp33d: Isn’t “sneaky” an anti-Semitic dog whistle? Did he just mention sneaky because shes jewish?
CharlieDarwin2: “The big news Republicans didn’t want you to see”. Cheers for Dianne!
White House white wash – transcript fails to include line from Trump on clean DACA bill
The Trump Whitehouse apparently violates the presidential records act by not recording accurately the presidents words. If this is what they do when the cameras are rolling, who knows what they alter behind the curtain.
White House caught censoring transcript to cover up Trump bungling his own basic policy
BridgieRose: Remember this is a President who, during a *nationally televised debate* viewed by some 16 million people said not paying taxes made him [smart](https://youtu.be/ho63dkAgNDQ) and then walked off the stage and *immediatly* [lied](https://youtu.be/Iun7m9gU2ks) about it.
Gaslighter in chief.

After Dad Fails To Sing Anthem, Trump Jr. Tweets That’s ‘How It’s Done’

Trump Spiritual Advisor Wants You To Send Her Up To 1 Month’s Pay Or Face ‘Consequences’
Paula White, a prosperity gospel preacher with close ties to President Donald Trump, is calling on followers to send her donations of up to one month’s salary. Those who don’t pay up could face “consequences” from God as he demands the dough as a “first fruits” offering.
“The reason is God lays claim to all firsts,” White wrote on her website. “So when you keep for yourself something that belongs to God you are desecrating what is to be consecrated to God.”
Mueller’s obstruction of justice case against Trump looks damning
>“If Trump exercises his power — even his lawful power — with a corrupt motive of interfering with an investigation, that’s obstruction,” says Lisa Kern Griffin, an expert on criminal law at Duke University. “The attempt is sufficient, and it seems to be a matter of public record already.”
A few things:
– It’s a matter of public record meaning Trump went on national television and admitted to it. There are no grey areas. This isn’t a novel area of law. It’s very clear. He said, “And in fact when I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said ‘you know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made-up story, it’s an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won’.” It’s a farce that that GOP is making us go through this entire investigation just to reach the conclusion that we would have 4 months into the administration. Good on them for getting their tax cuts and gutting half the government, but they’re only going to make it worse for themselves in November.
– You’ll never be able to explain the above quote to Trump supporters. The President has an absolute right to fire the FBI director. That doesn’t mean, however, that context doesn’t matter and that he can’t later be charged with obstruction for it. In a sense, you have a right to break the law. You have a right to scream “fire” in a crowded theater in the sense that no one will be there to stop you before you do it, but you don’t have a right to be free from the eventual criminal charges.
– I think rational people can see that there’s no “smoking gun” yet and there might never be. I think it’s possible that Trump and his team know some really shady people, have some really shady business deals, are up to their eyeballs in debt, and yet Trump personally never explicitly “colluded”. Yet even if that doesn’t exist, you still have to ask yourself why that’s acceptable for a President to be involved in and then repeatedly lie about, which brings me to:
– Even if they did nothing wrong in a strictly legal sense, at every step of the way, the Trump team has so completely messed this up, and it’s not just Trump himself. It was Jarvanka that recommended firing Comey. My biggest takeaway from Fire and Fury was that Bannon was the only one that understood that in our hyper-partisan times, it’s possible that any opposition can take down an administration or an individual if it holds the right levers of power. You can see how the GOP crippled the Obama administration and smeared Hillary into unelectability. He understood that even if there was nothing illegal about what happened with Russia, that they still needed to be disciplined enough to fight off the tangential stuff that could still stink the administration, like obstruction or perjury.
Trump wants Republicans to take over Russia investigation from Robert Mueller because ‘the world is laughing at America’
Muller is a Republican.
Rosenstein is a Republican.
Nunes, Gowdy, etc are Republicans.
Grassley and Graham are Republicans.
Wray is a Republican.
WTF is he talking about?
Mueller adds veteran cyber prosecutor to special counsel team
This move indicates Mueller has moved on more areas of the conspiracy than previously known. This guy was hired in November and we’re just finding out.
Looks like Mueller has Trump’s emails.
> Legal analysts have said that one charge Mueller might pursue would be a conspiracy to violate the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, if he can demonstrate that members of Trump’s team conspired in Russia’s hacking effort to influence the election.
> Dickey, who previously worked as an assistant U.S. attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia, has participated in a number of high-profile computer crime prosecutors — including the ongoing case against the popular file-sharing site Megaupload.com **and the investigation of Romanian hacker known as “Guccifer.”**
> Guccifer, whose real name is Marcel Lehel Lazar penetrated the email, Facebook and other online accounts of celebrities and political figures, including former secretary of state Colin L. Powell, former Bill Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal and a family member of President George W. Bush. His hacking inadvertently revealed that Hillary Clinton was using a private email account when she was secretary of state.
AP Fact Check: Trump says collusion is disproved; it’s not
THE FACTS: Although he is free to deny that it happened, Trump has no standing to assert that collusion has been ruled out. The special counsel’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and Russian contacts with Trump’s team is continuing and it’s premature to say “everyone found” there was nothing. The probe has not publicly established that Moscow and the Trump team colluded — or that they didn’t. The same is true of other potential misdeeds, like obstruction of justice. Trump has often stated that even Democratic leaders have stated there was no collusion. In fact, they have only said that proof has not yet emerged.
Trump says it ‘seems unlikely’ he’ll give an interview in Mueller investigation, says, ‘I’ll see what happens’
Wait, he was lying in this tweet?

Second Republican Lawmaker Commits Suicide Following Sexual Abuse Allegations In Less than a Month
Altrightzheimers: I wrote previously about the suicide of another GOP child abuser who committed suicide after being caught. This latest story may indicate a larger child abuse ring operating in the GOP.
Could be worth investigating rep Greg Chaney who appears to ignore the child abuse allegations to support his deceased colleague.
Second Republican Lawmaker Commits Suicide Following Sexual Abuse Allegations in less than a month: “good”, “more please”, “two down…” This isn’t even a fifth of the pro-suicide comments
“2018 is either going to burn this country down or be saved by cutting the right wire with 3 seconds left.”
I don’t support death threats or violence, but I support death threats and violence.

Police State: Thousands of Americans’ Electronics Illegally Searched at Border – “Over 30,000 people had their electronic devices searched without probable cause or a warrant by Customs and Border Protection in 2017. This is a 50% increase from 2016.”
Oops! White House admits it has zero evidence of voter fraud in 2016 election
> In a court filing on Tuesday, the White House announced that it had not uncovered any preliminary findings of voter fraud in the 2016 election and that it would be destroying confidential voter data initially collected for President Trump’s controversial voter fraud commission, which was disbanded on January 3.
> The commission came under fire last year after requesting that states turn over their voter rolls and confidential voter data in order to parse them for evidence of potential fraud.
> Up until Tuesday, Kobach – who is currently running for governor in his home state – had given the impression that the voter fraud investigation was ongoing and that the disbanded commission had uncovered a swath of evidence that was being hampered by “Leftist” groups, according to Breitbart.
Just one more bigly whopper from the **Liar in Chief**!
> In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, **I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally**”
> Numerous states are refusing to give information to the very distinguished VOTER FRAUD PANEL. What are they trying to hide?”
> Many mostly Democrat States refused to hand over data from the 2016 Election to the Commission On Voter Fraud. They fought hard that the Commission not see their records or methods because **they know that many people are voting illegally**. System is rigged, must go to Voter I.D.”
NTJackson: What’s funny is they seem to enjoy other types of fraud or shady actions in elections. Such as with [what’s happening in North Carolina](http://www.cnn.com/2018/01/09/politics/north-carolina-gerrymandering-case/index.html) or when that [statistics professor in Kansas noticed some odd voting patterns]), but Kansas has done its best to stop any investigation into the matter.
They just claim “voter fraud” so they can implement measures that make it harder for people to vote.
