We don’t need the Mueller investigation to demand impeachment. Trump violations of the law and the constitution are clear cut. The Congress not acting now is a clear dereliction of duty:
Congress, which has the authority to begin impeachment hearings against President Donald Trump has been reluctant to act, awaiting the results of special counsel Robert Mueller’s criminal investigation, among other things.
But in a new book, three veteran constitutional lawyers argue that the framers of the Constitution provided impeachment as a remedy in anticipation of a leader like Trump, and that he’s committed enough offenses for removal proceedings to begin immediately.
The framers of the Constitution “were obsessed with corruption,” and “to defend against this ever-present danger, they built bulwarks into the Constitution itself,” the book The Constitution Demands It: The Case for the Impeachment of Donald Trump, set for release Tuesday, says.
Clearly there many other Republicans that have been compromised by the Kremlin:
Addressing the about-face Sen Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has made — going from Donald Trump critic to stalwart Trump defender — authoritarian expert Sarah Kendzior suggested that the South Carolina Republican may be doing it involuntarily.
Appearing on MSNBC’s AM Joy with guest host Jonathan Capehart, Kendzior was asked what she made of Graham who called for the Mueller investigation in the beginning but now wants it to abruptly end.
It is not in dispute that Trump is truly a manchurian candidate. The KGB has worked to make to him president for decades. And they’ve succeeded:
At the same time as the author of a new investigative book about Donald Trump and Russia claimed that Trump became a Russian “asset” as far back as 1987, as The Inquisitr reported, a veteran former CIA agent has told an audience in Colorado that Trump became a Russian “agent of influence” a year before that — in 1986 when Trump attended a cocktail party also attended by agents of the KGB, the dreaded secret intelligence service of what was then the Soviet Union.
But CIA veteran turned author Bob Baer added another startling detail, in his talk to a small audience at a Telluride, Colorado, public library on Thursday. During the 2016 presidential election campaign, months before the Christopher Steele Dossier became public — or before Steele had written more than a portion of the now-notorious document — a former KGB agent told Baer, “We have a tape of Donald Trump!”
Don Jr. shows why the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. He’s a fraud just like dad. And that’s why he’s going to jail:
Donald Trump Jr. deleted a doctored image from his Instagram Friday, which showed his father’s approval rating at 50%.
The falsified image originated from a CNN segment that aired on Monday, which compared numbers from the same period in the past two presidencies. It showed President Donald Trump’s current 40% approval rating, compared to former president Barack Obama’s 45%, as well as unemployment rates and jobs added.
Eventually most Republicans will realize that they were duped. But by then it will be too late to save the GOP because will have become the party of treason:
In a scathing column, the editorial board of the conservative Weekly Standardmagazine unleashed criticism not just for Donald Trump‘s continued lies about the infamous Trump Tower meeting, but also against Republicans who insistently support him.
The editorial refers to the Trump camp’s ever-changing story on the Trump Tower meeting that took place June 2016 between the president’s son, son-in-law, campaign manager and a Russia lawyer escorting an envoy of her countrymen.
We will not give in to violence on the right:
All eyes are on Washington this weekend with white supremacists and anti-fascists organising protests to mark the one-year anniversary of their deadly confrontation at a rally in Charlottesville.
Authorities have raised security at a park outside the White House to try to keep the two groups separate and avoid a repeat of the violent clashes between them a year ago.
The questions is whether Trump or Pence will swear her in when she becomes a Congresswoman. Awkward:
Rashida Tlaib’s opposition to President Donald Trump began while he was still candidate Trump and before she decided to run for Congress.
The 42-year-old attorney, who is set to become the first Muslim woman elected to Congress, was booted from a 2016 Trump campaign speech in Detroit for heckling the polarizing Republican.
After winning Tuesday’s Democratic primary to run unopposed for the House seat that Rep. John Conyers held for more than five decades before retiring amid sexual harassment allegations, Tlaib, the eldest of 14 children born to Palestinian immigrants , vowed to take the fight to Trump once she’s in Washington.
