This day in Politics

Robert Kelner confirmed at the hearing that his client continues to cooperate with U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of any links between Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and Russia. Kelner also indicated the evidence the judge had ordered Mueller provide to Flynn’s legal team had not altered his case.

Well there goes that talking point.

LOL at the rally.

I wonder what name the guy posts under on this forum.


#1353

Perhaps @Safiel can explain the relevance of this?


#1354

Found the name of a character and fake sites I think Cohen was using to lure dupes-

Now we know why Trump hates Germany…and that avoiding military service is a family thing.


#1357

Family tradition. Makes sense. Hopefully along with his draft dodging avoidance of service, he will follow his Grandfather’s other path and be kicked out of America.

Hey, one can hope right?


#1358

Ummm… his grandfather left before he could perform military service.

TDS may have blinded you to that fact.


#1359

And he returned.

Not sure what blinded you from that fact.


#1360

Trump is off to a lovely start this morning, claiming Germany is controlled by Russia. Says 70% of NG is from Russia, which is a lie, but what else is new? Facts don’t mean anything to the orange stain.

Yep. Sounds about right.

But the ship of maximum leverage has sailed, argues Cheon Seong Whun, a former South Korean government official who worked in the defense and unification departments. It left, he says, the moment President Trump agreed to meet with Kim Jong Un without any preconditions.

“He lost leverage when he agreed to those talks,” said Cheon, a visiting research fellow at the Asan Institute for Policy Studies. “That was a huge political mistake.”

The theater behind the failed Pompeo visit was “a repeated strategy by the North Koreans,” he said, dubbing it a repeat of US-DPRK talks during the 1990s.

“The North Koreans have a very correct understanding of weak spots in Western politicians who try to make a deal with them. The politicians have to sound optimistic. Pompeo is not prepared to admit he made a mistake,” Cheon told CNN.

Just as many of us predicted.

We elected a massive liar all because he pandered and said the 7 or 8 things that Fox has been preaching for decades.

Got to give him credit for playing the crowd.


#1364

Because of course they did.

The Guardian reported on Wednesday that Uralasbest has adorned pallets of its products with Trump’s face and the message, “Approved by Donald Trump, 45th president of the United States."

The news outlet noted that the move came after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) elected not to prohibit the new asbestos product outright.
“Donald is on our side!” Uralasbest announced in a Facebook post accompanied by the products with Trump’s face stamped atop them. The post also thanks Trump for supporting former EPA chief Scott Pruitt and adds that Trump called asbestos “100% safe after application.”


#1365

Damn…


#1366

Trump just does not understand NATO at all. This is another example of why it was a horrible decision to elect someone so clueless to the Presidency.


#1367

Just as long as he is owning the libs, nothing else matters.


#1368

Not to him or his sycophantic cult. But for the majority of Americans and our allies in NATO, it certainly matters. And is quite dangerous. It is just baffling to me how right out of the gates, before the summit even began, he delivered a big victory to Putin and Russia. This is not normal.


#1369

As if there was much of a question on whether or not the questioning of Strzok was about politics and running interference in the Mueller investigation, versus legitimate oversight from the Committee, here is a list of questions that the GOP asked him that were highly inappropriate and irrelevant. No wonder the Democrats want the full transcript released, and the GOP is refusing…


#1370

It seems like asking who someone voted for under oath is a very dangerous path to go down.
