Trump on his lawyer Cohen this morning on Fox & Friend
Quote:
“He represents me with this crazy Stormy Daniels deal. From what I see, he did absolutely nothing wrong,” Trump said.

Trump previously said he had no knowledge of a $130,000 payment Cohen made as part of the agreement.

Stormy's lawyer Avenatti said on MNSBC’s “Morning Joe” that the president’s statement is a “gift from the heavens," adding that he wanted to "send a shout out to Fox & Friends."

Sweet. Trump just cannot shut up. He just admitted that Cohen did represent him in the Stormy Daniels affair, which as Avenatti pointed out, he previously denying knowing anything about. The problem with lies is that you have to remember a shedload of stuff to keep your story consistent. I'm loving it.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

EPA head Scott Pruitt presented to lawmakers in two separate Congress hearings today a “threat assessment” that he said came from Inspector General Arthur Elkins detailing various death threats against him.

Later Office of the Inspector General spokeswoman Kentia Elbaum said in a statement "“The memo that he read from was not from Inspector General Elkins.
It was an internal memo from Assistant IG for Investigations Patrick Sullivan.
It was leaked without authorization.”

Source

I remember when Trump was elected that someone posted that so much chaos would happen we would no longer be shocked or surprised by such events.
Sadly they were correct.

Lying to Congress under oath is something one can be jailed for

EDIT: At the same hearings Scott Pruitt acknowledged that he had lied -- straight up! -- on Fox News last week when he said this: "I did not know that they got the pay raises until yesterday."
At issue: Two EPA employees had received early raises totaling more than $80,000 -- end-running the White House, which opposed the salary increases, in the process.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

The FBI told Congress on Thursday that the agency informed White House officials about domestic abuse allegations against former White House staff secretary Rob Porter in March of last year, contradicting claims made by top Trump administration officials.

The FBI presented Congress with a timeline of events surrounding its investigation into Porter for his security clearance, which included a letter to the White House in March of last year that reportedly included the domestic abuse allegations.

As sacked FBI chief James Comey said "Trump untethered to truth"

Meanwhile London's mayor about Trump visit
Quote:
Sadiq Khan@SadiqKhan

If he comes to London, President Trump will experience an open and diverse city that has always chosen unity over division and hope over fear.
He will also no doubt see that Londoners hold their liberal values of freedom of speech very dear.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Naked extortion

Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

The U.S. has put together a STRONG bid w/ Canada & Mexico for the 2026 World Cup.
It would be a shame if countries that we always support were to lobby against the U.S. bid.
Why should we be supporting these countries when they don’t support us (including at the United Nations)?
Surely this contravenes the FIFA bid rules of conduct here especially the sections about exerting influence?

Edit: Consequently FIFA should throw out the US bid?

That would be? (I've been away a looong time). I remember Dover as a pretty "characterful" place. Is that where you mean? At the time we lived briefly in Sittingbourne, North Thanet. I would not wish our spot downwind of the paper factory even on Trump.

Sadiq Khan values freedom of speech so dearly that he's set up the first ever police unit in the UK to make it illegal on the internet.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

The last few days of news has just been amazing, the Fox News rant was truly a demonstration of how unhinged and incoherent he is becoming. Even his staunchest supporters must have been cringing. Hoping for impeachment or resignation within the next few months... it now seems realistic enough.

Hearing Trump rambling on, almost incoherently and almost without interruption, reminded me really strongly of someone...



(They even have the same colour hair.)
