Did Giuliani resign from his law firm voluntarily or was there maybe, possibly, conceivably, unlikely some pressure?
Quote:
The law firm that Rudy Giuliani formerly worked for, Greenberg Traurig, released a statement on Thursday (the same day and soon after Giuliani resigned) rejecting his defense of a $130,000 payment that President Donald Trump's longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels.

Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

Today, my Administration is launching the most sweeping action in history to lower the price of prescription drugs for the American People. We will have tougher negotiation, more competition, and much lower prices at the pharmacy counter!
Sounds great and so did his speech afterwards but was the effect on these pharmaceutical stocks?

The two largest indices for biotech and pharmaceutical companies rose about 2 percent after Trump’s speech, as investors saw little to fear for drug makers.
The stock prices of Pfizer, Merck, Gilead Sciences, and Amgen all spiked after Trump’s speech.

Source

Turns out it was all Trump rhetoric with no committed actions to actually cut drug prices.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Who needs enemies if you have a Giuliani.
Quote:
President Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani seemed to suggest that the president had a larger role in the Justice Department's decision to block AT&T's proposed merger with Time Warner in a new interview with The Huffington Post on Friday.

In the interview, Giuliani states that Trump "denied the merger," which appears to fly in the face of months of assurances from the DOJ and the White House that Trump had no influence over the decision.
Source

So far Giuliani's role seems to be to contradict Trump's public statements; probably a cunning strategy

Some conspiracy theorists have claimed Trump's opposition to the merger stems from Time Warner's ownership of CNN which firm Trump frequently disparages in tweets.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

It is not Friday but anyway a Friday story

Quote:
“Fox & Friends” co-host Pete Hegseth swatted the “failing New York Times (NYT)” on Friday morning for supposedly not covering a story. Presumably an attempt to show the msm do not report positive stories on Trump.

“I looked for the story about five ISIS leaders captured in the failing New York Times,” Hegseth said while flipping through the newspaper on-air. “And in the print edition today[Friday], I have not seen it yet.”
Hegseth did not see the story Friday because NYT ran it on the previous Wednesday and Thursday!
The guy is a clown

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

ZTE, a smartphone and telecom equipment maker that does business around the world, announced last week that it has halted its main operations after the Trump administration banned American companies from selling it vital components.

Now, Trump says he's working with President Xi Jinping of China to get the company back on its feet.

"Too many jobs in China lost. Commerce Department has been instructed to get it done!" Trump wrote in a tweet Sunday.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Zurich lawyer Stephan Roh was taken from the queue last October on his arrival in New York, taken to an interrogation room and questioned for hours.
The interrogation was not only led by FBI agents, but also with members of special Counsel Robert Mueller team.

Roh claims the Russian probe is a fake investigation.

Source (German language)

According to the Tages-Anzeiger, 50-year-old Stephan Roh was in contact with two people who are said to have offered the campaign team of Donald Trump hacked mails from Hillary Clinton.

Sounds like the effects of sanctioning Vekselberg, which meant assets of the Swiss companies he holds a majority of got everything frozen. That issue was resoved in a few days IIRC.

This is just the beginning, that much is guaranteed.

Just as well no local power in the region has lost its disincentive to start making nukes again.

Only the disincentive by the US I think. The other parties haven't canceled so Iran is still bound. Or should be.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Quote:
Governor Christie@GovChristie

A great day for the rights of states and their people to make their own decisions. New Jersey citizens wanted sports gambling and the federal Gov't had no right to tell them no.
The Supreme Court agrees with us today.
I am proud to have fought for the rights of the people of NJ.
The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 on Monday that PASPA’s provisions blocking states from authorizing and licensing a sports gambling scheme conflicts with the anti-commandeering rule.
Illegal gambling was always a great revenue source for the Mafia, now they will have to find another.

Quote:
“PASPA 'regulates state governments’ regulation' of their citizens. The Constitution gives Congress no such power.”
Meanwhile another "tasteful" New Yorker cover, Trump golfing in the swamp.
