Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Stormy Daniel's lawyer Avenatti said yesterday that he has been approached by six other women with stories about President Trump similar to that of the adult-film actress.

He cautioned in an appearance on CNN that he had not yet vetted the cases "to any great degree," but said that at least two of the women have nondisclosure agreements.

See you in Court as Donnie likes to say, I suppose it will all turn out to be a nothing burger.

If Donny doesn't now sue these two women it can only mean he has nondisclosure agreements with more than two women, so can't be sure which two are the ones in question!

He could change his name if he wanted. It's not uncommon at all in the U.S. for men to give their firstborn son the same exact name, and to distinguish between the two, the elder is often referred to as senior and the younger as junior. If the next generation down gets the same exact name, he's Donald Trump III (the third). And so on.

I have loads of Jrs and IIIs in my family, but no IVs that I can recall. By the time the name got to the third generation the dude had enough of it.

It worked for generations of kings, why not for commoners?

About time Trumps son-in-law got his marching orders from Trump. He does not even have security clearance!

Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI - A great day for Democracy. Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI!

Trump's now just being mean. Even his supporters must see that. How can it be a great day for democracy? And speaking of lies, Trump continuously refuses to see his own faults and proudly creates chaos and conflict around him. His narcissistic urges have again been appeased...for the moment.

I guess that depends a lot on whether you feel he's had a fair shake of the dice or not.

His supporters see it, and probably love it. Trump and his supporters firmly believe that Clinton should be in jail and that the Russia probe is fake news.

Trump is sending a clear message to government employees (FBI in particular) that if you don't do his bidding, you will suffer the consequences and your career will be for nothing.

McMaster is up next, methinks. Sessions is okay for now. He extended his lifeline by firing McCabe.

His supporters don't see anything. Did the supporters of Hitler see anything?

I've heard the line "Trump's desire to humiliate...." No words.

True about Sessions but strange he did the firing and not McCabe's boss Christopher Wray. I wonder if Wray was involved and agreed to this action? There were stories earlier this year that Trump pressured Wray to fire McCabe and that Wray refused and threatened to resign.

In the strange irony of life we do not know the exact justification given for McCabe's firing except it seems to have been an "anti-Clinton" action rather than anti-Trump.

Probably McMaster next, whatever else Trump is or not; selecting the right people for a job is not one of his top skills

Really mean the firing of McCabe two days before he qualified for his pension.
Now McCabe seems to have blown a big hole in the GOP argument that McCabe said the "dossier" was the ground for the surveillance monitoring of Page - McCabe now denies this.

As the House Intelligence Committee has concluded, there was no collusion between Russia and the Trump Campaign. As many are now finding out, however, there was tremendous leaking, lying and corruption at the highest levels of the FBI, Justice & State. #DrainTheSwamp
Putin must be very happy with Trump, this exceeds his wildest dreams

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Some interesting allegations from an ex Cambridge Analytica employee and whistle blower. This was a firm Trump used in his campaign.

Allegations
  • the company had “reached out” to WikiLeaks to help distribute Hillary Clinton’s stolen emails in 2016.
  • arrangement with a company called (GSR), owned by Cambridge-based academic Aleksandr Kogan, on the harvesting and processing of Facebook data
  • Collected 50 million US user profiles from Facebook (Facebook claim the data had been illicitly obtained)
  • Kogan is also an associate professor at St Petersburg University and he’s received grants from the Russian government
  • Cambridge Analytica presented to the Russian oil company Lukoil on election disruption techniques.
  • Claims they were associated with spreading fear in the 2007 Nigerian election by spreading the idea that the “election would be rigged”.
  • Millions of US people’s personal information was stolen and used to target them in ways they wouldn’t have seen

Andrew McCabe-why do they talk about his pension? He is only 49 years old.
