Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

All this publicity about McCabe has been good for Comey, his book due on April 17 has this week risen from No. 15 on the Amazon best seller list to No. 2 based on pre-sale orders.

Meanwhile there have been a storm of defensive tweets from Trump including for first time, Trump aims at special counsel Mueller.

Why does the Mueller team have 13 hardened Democrats, some big Crooked Hillary supporters, and Zero Republicans? Another Dem recently added...does anyone think this is fair? And yet, there is NO COLLUSION!
Strangely the article does not mention the probable cause for Trump's storm today, it is claimed that Mueller has now sent Trump's lawyers a list of questions he needs Trump to answer.

Of course this does not mean that Trump is guilty of anything but certainly the probe is getting closer

Edit: 13 hardened Democrats? Reminds about the joke that a lorry load of Viagra was stolen, The police are looking for a group of hardened criminals.
I will get my coat and leave now!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Just gets weirder.
Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas) (chairman of the House Intelligence Committee) denied today that the committee drew a conclusion that there was no collusion.

Quote:
Rep. Mike Conawaysaid today the House Intelligence Committee was not tasked with investigating collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, despite the committee issuing a report last week stating it found no evidence of collusion in the 2016 election.

Our committee was not charged with answering the collusion idea,” Conaway said on NBC's “Meet The Press.”

"So we really weren’t focused on that direction."
Quote:
When asked if he regrets that the committee attempted to draw a conclusion on whether the Russians colluded with the Trump campaign, Conaway denied that the committee drew a conclusion at all.

“What we said is we found no evidence of it,” he said. “That’s a different statement. We found no evidence of collusion.”
Source

This blows a big hole in Trump's tweet!
Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump
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
One wonders if Conaway dug a trap for Trump to jump into

Since we worry so much about bias here, I'd like to point out that this newspaper is run by the Moonies. "The Times is owned by News World Communications, an international media conglomerate associated with the Unification Church"

In the article there's a linked video to Senile Pelosi saying the wall is too high and too big, is that biased too?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

The writer has now updated the article admitting she wasn't entirely correct.

He was 2 working days away from early retirement, Trump's action meant he would have had to wait 7 years until he qualified for the benefits he should have got at 50, had he worked the extra 2 days.

A kindly Democrat has done the right thing and offered him a job for a month in order that he has served the requisite amount of time for early retirement.

All in all, very petty and not very presidential - but that's not exactly news.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Saw this elsewhere; so Trump is suing a porn star for 20 million for breaching an NDA he says doesn't exist, related to an affair he denies ever took place.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

"In Massive Victory For Democrats, Federal Judge Rejects Challenge To Pennsylvania Map"

The congressional districts map of PA was very tipped towards the Republicans. It was redrawn to be "fairer" as required by the constitution of PA. Of course the Republicans took it to court. The challenge was just rejected.

Of note in the article (link below) is that "Democrats are likely to gain an additional four House seats from the new Pennsylvania map alone."

Keep in mind that the Dems only need 24 seats to gain control of the House in November.

Just to be pedantic for the ones at the back of the class it is not just "the Republicans took it to court".

It has been to several courts but now the US Supreme Court have decided so there are no more legal remedies remaining for the GOP to pursue to keep the electoral map.

Surprising decision by the US Supreme Court, looking forward to the tweet storm
