Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Surprising to me the defense rested its case Tuesday morning in the trial against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort without calling any witnesses after the prosecution spent nearly three weeks presenting their case.
Manafort himself said he will not take the stand.

Source

Seems a strange way to defend the case; I suppose it will all depend on the strength of the defence lawyers closing statement. But when the prosecution have claimed Manafort had over $60 Million in undeclared off shore bank accounts it will have to be some statement!

Trump about Omarosa " low life,a dog". What is that for a real low life that is pretending to run a nation.?
Also strange for someone who he considers a dog and low life. Trump:
"You know, they run a big operation but I didn't know it. I didn't know that. Damn it, I don't love you leaving at all."

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Sounds like a John Grisham novel. No doubt the jury has been bribed or they all are closet Trump supporters. Can hardly wait for the sequel.

Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch: “The Strzok firing is as much about the Mueller operation as anything else. There would be no Mueller Special Councel to investigate so called collusion but for the machinations of Strzok & his colleagues at the top levels of the FBI. We know this..
.
One might imagine someone representing a group with the high sounding title "Judicial Watch" might be able to spell "Counsel" correctly?
Strange Trump did not change this one but deleted

Lou Dobbs: "This cannot go forward...this Special Councel with all of his conflicts, with his 17 Angry Democrats, without any evidence of collusion by the Trump Campaign and Russia. The Dems are the ones who should be investigated." Thank you Lou, so true!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Getting nasty now!
Quote:
Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman claimed Tuesday that President Trump knew about the hacked Democratic emails obtained by WikiLeaks before they were released during the height of the 2016 election campaign.

U.S. officials have linked the hacked emails to a broader plot by Russia to interfere in the election.

Now that could be collusion?

The second tweet had the corrected spelling of "Counsel" no longer spelt as "Councel".

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Interesting situation developing

Quote:
President Trump’s reelection campaign has hired attorney Charles Harder in its arbitration fight against former "Apprentice" star and White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman, according to CNBC.

The campaign announced Tuesday it was filing for arbitration against Manigault Newman in response to claims she’s made in the media and in her tell-all book “Unhinged” detailing her time in the White House.
They are basing this arbitration on a confidentiality agreement Omarosa signed during the 2016 campaign.

They need to prove this agreement is relevant to Omarosa's later time in the WH?

They also have the problem that the WH claims her allegations are false. But if they want to prove she broke the confidentiality agreement then they have to confirm some of her allegations are not false.

The White House has now admitted Trump said the N-word, but don't know if there is a tape of it...

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

So there will be an other book.
Has anybody actually read "Fire and Fury" which came out in January?
Nobody seems to have commented on it on here (or I missed it all as - yes - I do take breaks on this thread ).
So if anyone did comment on it, where amongst the 15092 posts in this thread would I find it?

A bit of deductive reasoning will tell you it is so...

If Trump had never said it, they could guarantee there were no tapes out there of him saying it.

Manafort himself said he will not take the stand.

Quite understandable. As Peter Cook said in summing up at the Jeremy Thrope trial:


Quote:
You will probably have noticed that three of the defendants have very wisely chosen to exercise their inalienable right not to go into the witness box to answer a lot of impertinent questions. I will merely say that you are not to infer from this anything other than that they consider the evidence against them so flimsy that it was scarcely worth their while to rise from their seats and waste their breath denying these ludicrous charges

Four hours later...

... it's up to $244,257 (it's been running for only 22 hours all up). Nice going; I doubt Strzok earned $10,000 per hour while he was still at the FBI. Shame it's all going to disappear into deep legal pockets.
Now $380,000 with a new goal of a half mil!

Even more interesting as Trump clearly said he had never used the "N" word in his life then clearly his Press Secretary Sanders does not believe him. If she believed him then she would guarantee such a tape does not exist.
Possibly the first time she publicly admits she does not believe Trump?
So how long will she keep her job now?
