The opposition research firm that produced the explosive dossier alleging ties between President Donald Trump’s campaign team and Russia has claimed in new court filings that it did not provide the dossier to BuzzFeed, which published the document in full in January.

The filings were part of Fusion GPS’s efforts to quash a subpoena issued in late August by Aleksej Gubarev, a Russian tech executive whom the dossier accused of targeting Democratic Party leadership with malware and “botnets.” Gubarev is now suing both BuzzFeed and the dossier’s author, Christopher Steele.

Steele, a former British spy who spent decades on MI6’s Moscow desk, was hired by Fusion to research Trump’s purported ties to Russia.

In their initial attempt to quash Gubarev’s subpoena, Fusion said it would be willing to provide any “pre-publication communications” it had with BuzzFeed about the dossier prior to its publication.

Court documents filed on Tuesday, however, included a September 12 email from a lawyer with the firm representing Fusion informing Gubarev’s attorney that “we have found no pre-publication communications” between the firm and BuzzFeed.

Top Washington Think Tank: Trump ‘Likely Obstructed Justice’

The Brookings Institution says in a report that firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller would strengthen the evidence of improper conduct.

 

Report Advertisement

On 10 October 2017, the nonpartisan Brookings Institution released a report concluding that evidence already in the public record strongly suggests President Donald Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey was done with “improper intent”:

Our review of the facts and the law leads us to the view that the president likely obstructed justice. Should that conclusion be borne out, we believe he will be held to account under one or another of the vehicles we have outlined, for no one is above the law in our system. Accountability will have significant consequences for the functioning of our democracy. We offer this paper as a framework to evaluate the facts and the investigation as they develop, and to help prepare for the turbulence that may well lie ahead.

Authors Barry Berke, Noah Bookbinder, and Norman Eisen did say that Special Counsel Robert Mueller should be able to complete his current investigation into possible election interference by Russia before they could make any final determination about Trump’s actions thus far in his presidency.

Levin and Berke are currently acting as outside pro bono counsel to another organization, Citizens
for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), which has sued Trump for allegedly violating the foreign emoluments clause of the United States Constitution. Bookbinder is the group’s executive director, while Berke is also its founder and co-chair.

Trump fired Comey on 9 May 2017, as Comey was leading his own investigation into the possibility of both Russian interference and links between that country and Trump’s presidential campaign. Comey subsequently testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee that the president had asked for a pledge of “loyalty” while having dinner and told him he hoped that Comey would abandon investigating the activities of former national security advisor Michael Flynn:

The true nature of President Trump’s relationship with Flynn remains murky. But even if President Trump was acting to obstruct the investigation into Flynn out of mere friendship, as opposed to something more explicitly nefarious like covering up Flynn’s contact with Russian agents, Trump could still be acting with an improper purpose.

The Brookings team wrote that legal precedent has established that even if Trump wanted to protect his friend in asking Comey not to probe Flynn’s possible ties, that kind of motivation would be sufficient to
establish “corrupt intent” The report also said that if Trump fired Mueller for similar reasons, it would mount to a “doubling-down” on the potential pattern that the president was obstructing justice:

The evidence that President Trump has acted with an improper motive and therefore criminal intent would be strengthened by a clear pattern of obstructive behavior similar to his treatment of Director Comey, including pretextual attacks on Mueller’s impartiality, where Mueller appears to be investigating individuals who are close to President Trump. Because it is now publicly known that Mueller has convened a grand jury to assist his investigation, firing Mueller would have a clear nexus to grand jury proceedings and quite foreseeably impact them.

Whether Trump could be impeached while in office, the report says, is unclear. The Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department has stated that a president can not be indicted during his term. But Watergate special prosecutor Leon Jaworski and Kenneth Starr, who investigated former President Bill Clinton in 1994 as an independent counsel, both argued to the contrary. According to the Brookings analysis:

In our view, subjecting the president to criminal prosecution will not necessarily incapacitate the executive branch. While we acknowledge there are special considerations that must impact any form of litigation involving the president, the possibility of a criminal case against President Trump is consistent with the Article III jurisdiction of federal courts and Supreme Court precedent.

Impeachment is, by political definition, a trial for a member of high office, such as a United States president. It refers to the process of charging an elected official with a crime, which may or may not result in removal from office.

Donald Trump creates a scandal by refuting a media story about John Kelly that didnt even exist

You know how all week, the mainstream media has been pushing stories about how Donald Trump is on the verge of firing White House Chief of Staff John Kelly? No, you don’t, because that storyline largely hasn’t existed in the media. Except now it’s about to become a front page story, because Trump just went out of his way to refute the story even though it didn’t exist at the time he opened his mouth.There have clearly been problems brewing between Trump and Kelly behind the scenes over the past week. There was the incident with Kelly being bumped off Air Force One at the last minute, which the media lazily let slide after Sarah Huckabee Sanders made a lame excuse for it. There was the curiously timed leak about Kelly’s cellphone having been hacked this past summer, a leak that was rather transparently aimed at scandalizing Kelly, and could only have come from inside the Trump administration. But the media just refused to run with the story despite the prodding. Then came last night.

Out of nowhere, Trump tweeted “The Fake News is at it again, this time trying to hurt one of the finest people I know, General John Kelly, by saying he will soon be fired. This story is totally made up by the dishonest media.The Chief is doing a FANTASTIC job for me and, more importantly, for the USA!” Okay, so this is a new strategy. If he couldn’t leave enough breadcrumbs to get the media to start talking about whether he’s going to fire John Kelly, he instead decided to just pretend the story is already in the headlines so he could refute it thus thrusting it into the headlines.

It’s up to you to figure out if Donald Trump really is looking to get rid of John Kelly, or if he’s merely trying to use this as a distraction from his feud with Rex Tillerson, or some other scandal that’s going poorly for him. Either way, Trump has created a new scandal by refuting a media report about Kelly that didn’t even exist at the time. This is…bizarre.

The post Donald Trump creates a scandal by refuting a media story about John Kelly that didn’t even exist appeared first on Palmer Report.

3:43 PM 10/11/2017 – Fusion GPS says it didn’t give Trump Russia dossier to BuzzFeed. M.N.: Who did, then?

Fusion GPS says it didn’t give Trump Russia dossier to BuzzFeed

The opposition research firm that produced the explosive dossier alleging ties between President Donald Trump’s campaign team and Russia has claimed in new court filings that it did not provide the dossier to BuzzFeed, which published the document in full in January.

The filings were part of Fusion GPS’s efforts to quash a subpoena issued in late August by Aleksej Gubarev, a Russian tech executive whom the dossier accused of targeting Democratic Party leadership with malware and “botnets.” Gubarev is now suing both BuzzFeed and the dossier’s author, Christopher Steele.

Steele, a former British spy who spent decades on MI6’s Moscow desk, was hired by Fusion to research Trump’s purported ties to Russia.

In their initial attempt to quash Gubarev’s subpoena, Fusion said it would be willing to provide any “pre-publication communications” it had with BuzzFeed about the dossier prior to its publication.

Court documents filed on Tuesday, however, included a September 12 email from a lawyer with the firm representing Fusion informing Gubarev’s attorney that “we have found no pre-publication communications” between the firm and BuzzFeed.

From the filings:

buzzfeed dossierScreenshot

Fusion’s attorneys wrote in the court filings that Gubarev’s attempts to “open the door to wide-ranging discovery” of the firm were “unpersuasive” because Fusion “did not create or author the December memo, and did not give it to BuzzFeed.”

Evan Fray-Witzer, an attorney for Gubarev, said during a discovery hearing on September 28 that “the one thing that [Fusion] have told us is BuzzFeed didn’t get the dossier from them. BuzzFeed went to them and tried to get the dossier from them and they refused to give it to BuzzFeed.”

A spokesperson for Fusion GPS repeated that claim on Wednesday.

“While there may have been a request by BuzzFeed, no documents were shared,” the spokesperson told Business Insider.

BuzzFeed issued the following statement: “As we’ve stated time and again, the dossier was circulating at the highest levels of government, among numerous media outlets, and is the subject of multiple federal investigations. The only group that had yet to see the dossier when we published it was the public.”

Indeed, the dossier had been making its way around Washington, DC, for months leading up to its publication. Numerous reporters revealed after it was published that they had been approached to write about the dossier and its allegations.

Mother Jones’ David Corn reported on some of the dossier’s allegations in October after speaking with Steele and “his associates at the American firm” that hired him. Neither Steele nor Fusion GPS were named in Corn’s story. Their identities were only revealed later, well after BuzzFeed published the dossier in full.

Corn reported, however, that Steele had approached the FBI “without the permission of the US company that hired him” in July after spending a month collecting information about Trump’s alleged Russia ties. Steele forwarded the FBI additional memos in August, at which point they began communicating regularly, Corn reported.

Fusion GPS was therefore not the only entity with access to the dossier. The document was reportedly obtained by former State Department official David Kramer, who then passed it along to Republican Sen. John McCain. McCain then provided it to former FBI Director James Comey.

The FBI had reportedly already used the dossier’s allegations to bolster its case for a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant against early Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

The Senate Judiciary Committee subpoenaed Fusion over the summer but dropped the request when the firm’s cofounder, Glenn Simpson, agreed to a closed-door interview.

Congressman introduces Articles of Impeachment against Donald Trump on House floor 

1 Share

The impeachment process is a thousand steps, and this is merely Step One, but it officially happened today. Congressman Al Green has introduced articles of impeachment against Donald Trump today, reading them aloud on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives. What may be most important here is that no one else in the House is even trying to interrupt him.

To be as clear as possible, a majority vote in the House is required just for impeachment hearings to begin – and there is absolutely no indication that enough House Republicans are currently willing to side with the Democrats in order to start those hearings. But while Al Green’s articles of impeachment are not likely to lead to any imminent impeachment hearings, this is a major symbolic step in the process. The most important aspect in this process may be that Green’s speech is airing live on CSPAN and will receive airtime on various cable news networks. From a strategic standpoint, Green’s timing is perfect.

This comes just three days after Republican Senator Bob Corker stated for the record that he believes Donald Trump is going to get us all killed because he’s too psychologically unstable for the job. Because Corker is from Trump’s own party, that kind of thing goes a long way toward convincing the American middle – which already largely doesn’t support Trump – that it is indeed time for him to be ousted. Al Green’s articles of impeachment will receive significant attention from the media and the public because the discussion is already underway as to whether Trump is mentally unfit for office.

Congressman Al Green has been threatening to introduce these articles of impeachment for some time, and he appears to have been waiting for when he could land the most impact in the court of public opinion. Going forward, the question on the minds of the public may now be why the Republicans are refusing to impeach Donald Trump.

Donald Trump adviser Carter Page pleads the fifth as Trump-Russia scandal explodes 

1 Share

Yet another high profile Donald Trump campaign adviser has announced that he’ll be invoking the Fifth Amendment in order to try to avoid testifying before Congress about his role in the Trump-Russia scandal. While this will deprive the viewing public of getting to watch what might have been explosive testimony, it’s a sign of just how explosive the scandal has become for Donald Trump behind the scenes.

The latest Trump campaign adviser to plead the fifth is Carter Page, in response to the Senate Intelligence Committee’s request that he show up and testify (link). In return the committee can subpoena him anyway, and if a judge agrees, he can be legally compelled to come in for questioning. At that point Page would either be arrested for contempt of Congress, or he could show up and simply answer every question by saying he’s invoking the Fifth Amendment. But how the Senate side of this plays out is less important than what this means for the overall investigation – specifically the one being run by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

In legal terms, if you invoke the Fifth Amendment, it’s not an admission or indicator of guilt. Instead you’re saying that if the government wants to build a case against you, it’ll have to do so without your help. Perhaps you consider yourself to be innocent, and you believe you’re going to be maliciously prosecuted. But in practical terms, this is likely an indicator that Carter Page believes he’s going to be prosecuted for crimes related to the Russia scandal. That’s where this becomes a big deal.

Robert Mueller is already in the process of pursuing criminal prosecution against Donald Trump campaign advisers Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn, in order to pressure them into flipping on Trump. What we’re seeing today is an indicator that Mueller is probably pursuing (or about to pursue) something similar against Carter Page. Mueller only has to get one of these guys to flip on Trump. The more he adds to the mix, the more explosive this gets for Trump himself.

The Full Transcript Of The President’s Interview With Forbes

1 Share

President Donald Trump sat down for an interview with Forbes Magazine Editor Randall Lane and Chief Product Officer Lewis D’Vorkin in the Oval Office on Friday, October 6th. White House Communications Director Hope Hicks also sat in. This is the unedited transcript from the interview, which lasted 50 minutes.

Randall Lane: You’ve always talked about having fun as a key to business. Are you having fun?

Donald Trump: I am having fun. I’m enjoying it. We’re accomplishing a lot. Your stock market is at an all-time high. Your jobs, your unemployment is at the lowest point in almost 17 years. We have fantastic numbers coming out. And I think we’ll have, over the course of the next, fairly short period of time, and more importantly over a long period of time, we’re going to have great numbers coming out of our country.

Lewis D’Vorkin: What’s your personal thought?

Trump: I enjoy success. And we’re having tremendous success, as a country. We have some difficulties with respect to North Korea, the Middle East. I inherited– and I’ve said it often–I inherited a mess. The country was having many different problems. Among them, the Middle East, ISIS, which we’ve done more with respect to ISIS in nine months than we’ve done in nine years. But we have really done, we have done, I would say eight months in eight years, to be specific. But we have done a really, really good job with the military. We’re building up our military. We just had an over $700 billion budget, which will be approved. We’re, you know, there’s been few times where the military was more important than what it is right now. And, in addition to that, which is by far the overriding element, it’s lots of jobs in the United States. So, what the country is doing, we’re doing very well. And on an economic front, we’re doing very well.

Lane: Now that we’re almost a year from the big upset and the big win, do you think your business background prepared you for this job? And were you ready, now that you have a year in?

Trump: Well, I think it helped. It’s certainly a different kind of job than, really there is anywhere. Because you have so many skills necessary. But certainly the campaign was successful. What people don’t realize is that I spent much less money than Hillary Clinton. So right there, perhaps that’s business. You know, if you look at the numbers it’s astronomically different.

Lane: Yeah.

Trump: I don’t think anybody’s ever written that. You know, in the old days, if you spent less money and won, that was supposed to be a good thing. Today nobody talks about it. But I spent much less money and won. I think that’s–so we start off there–I think that was good. I also think that, yes, being in–just last night I had dinner with all of our generals and admirals, at the highest level. You probably saw that.

Lane: Yeah, I saw the picture right here. Yeah.

Trump: It was lovely. It was fantastic. But I talked about business. I said, “Your equipment is coming in too slowly and at too great a cost.” And I actually got involved in negotiating, as an example, the F-35 fighter with Lockheed. You may call Marillyn [Hewson], the head of Lockheed, who you know, I think.

Lane: Mhmm.

Trump: And she’s a terrific person. But I developed a bidding system between Boeing and Lockheed. And I was able to reduce the price of the Lockheed by billions of dollars. By billions of dollars. And this took me, actually, a very small amount of time. And I read a story, and this when I was president-elect, had not come here yet. And I called the military. I said, “What’s the problem?” We met with the generals. I then met with Lockheed. I then–the generals were unable to get anything off the price. And in fact, they wanted to raise the price and claim extras. And I met with Marillyn [Hewson], from Lockheed. I then went and had a very frank discussion with her. I then met with Boeing, and I said, “Well, we’re going to come out with a competing plane.” And then went back to her. And I went back and forth. And the end result is billions and billions of dollars have been taken off the cost of the plane.

Lane: Well, again, you’re negotiating with them. You have obviously a lot of negotiation skills that you bring.

Trump: And that’s one thing. There are many, many things that I was too late into the game for the President Gerald Ford aircraft carrier. But it took too long to build, and it was way over budget. And you know, those things, we’re being much more conscious as a country about things such as that.

D’Vorkin: So you’ve had pain points in business, obviously.

Trump: Well, I don’t know.

D’Vorkin: If you–

Trump: Pain points?

D’Vorkin: In other words, obstacles that you have to overcome.

Trump: Oh, sure. You always have obstacles.

D’Vorkin: So, if you take away the politics of being president, and what you’re trying to do with the economy, what are the obstacles that you are finding that you necessarily didn’t find in your business life?

Trump: Well, you have Congress. That’s a big obstacle in many cases. You have, in some cases, well-meaning people in Congress that truly feel strongly about something. And I understand that and actually don’t mind that. And then of course you have grandstanders and others that want to try and make a point or want to do something that really isn’t necessarily in the best interests of the country. And those people I fight. And what people don’t know is that I’ve had just about the most legislation passed of any president, in a nine-month period, that’s ever served. We had over 50 bills passed. I’m not talking about executive orders only, which are very important. I’m talking about bills. We’ve had a tremendous amount of legislation passed. Like VA accountability, which nobody could get passed. Meaning people are accountable now, because before you couldn’t do anything if you caught people who worked there doing very bad things. But many, many bills have been passed. And now we’re going for taxes. I will get health care. I’m one vote short of health care. I’ll get health care. And I think block-granting it back to the states is going to be a great thing to do. I think it’ll be great for the people. Smaller government, great for the people. They’ll be able to handle it better. But we’re one–

Lane: Are you talking about the Graham-Cassidy bill?

Trump: Yeah, I like it very much. I do. I like it. It’s block-granting. It’s granting the money back to the states.

Lane: Right, right.

Trump: And you have a smaller form of government that’s going to be able to do–if they do a proper job–that will be able to do. There are certain states where they are very well run. And I could name them. I could name certain states where they really–they will do miracles with that money, in terms of health care. It’ll be far better than it is. Because Obamacare has failed, badly. So I’m working on that now. But we actually, I would say, I either have the votes or I’m one vote short. And I believe we’ll get health care done sometime prior to the election.

Lane: With Obamacare, until you come up with something different, don’t you feel there’s a lot of things going on with Obamacare right now, where, don’t you feel you need, as CEO of America, an obligation to make it run as good as it can while it’s still the law of the land?

Trump: Well, that’s an interesting, that’s a very interesting question. It’s a failed concept. It’s thousands and thousands of pages. It’s been amended by additional thousands of pages. It’s a total mess. The premiums are going up, you know.

Lane: But while it’s still the law, don’t you think, you know, we’re cutting back on advertising, we’re shrinking the window of signing up, so–

Trump: Well, we’re actually, what we’re doing is trying to keep it afloat, because it’s failing. I mean the insurance companies are fleeing and have fled. They fled before I got here. But with that being said, no, Obamacare is Obama’s fault. It’s nobody else’s fault. In fact, if you go back to–

Lane: Yes, but now it’s your administration’s responsibility.

Trump: Yes. But I’ve always said Obamacare is Obama’s fault. It’s never going to be our fault. With that being said, I think the Democrats want to make a deal. At the same time, I think I have a deal with the Republicans. So I have the best of both worlds. That’s business to a certain extent–

Lane: Right.

Trump: –when you asked the business question. And as you have noticed, I’m very able to make deals with Democrats if I have to.

Lane: Who have you found so far are better deal-making partners, the Ryan-McConnell set or the Pelosi-Schumer set?

Trump: Well, the Republicans have something called the filibuster rule. Which is a disaster. And if they don’t get rid of that, it’s always going to be very tough for them. You know what that is.

Lane: Yes, well, of course.

Trump: The filibuster rule is–

Lane: It’s a disaster when you’re in the majority. It’s a friend when you’re in the minority.

Trump: Well, you need eight Democrat votes every time. I mean, they literally need eight Democratic votes. And, they keep it for the sake of history. But history is that, in 1789, when it all began, what it actually, when they started voting, it was 1789, the first votes, that was a simple majority. And we should go back to a simple majority. If we had the filibuster rule, if we had the 60 votes for Justice Gorsuch, he would not be sitting on the bench right now because for the judges that has been taken off. And part of my plan is that the Democrats would take it off in two minutes. And the Republicans–

Lane: Well, they didn’t when they had a majority.

Trump: Well, they were going to. Well, they did it for the judge. Don’t forget, 95 percent of that work was done before we got there. So I think the filibuster rule is very bad. At the same time, I think if we pass taxes, I think we’ll have health care and taxes before. I believe we’ll have a great infrastructure bill before, which is easiest of all of them. In fact, I think I’ll have more Democrat votes for infrastructure than I will Republican votes. And I also have another bill that I think will be very–an economic development bill, which I think will be fantastic. Which nobody knows about. Which you are hearing about for the first time. But I’m going to do that. But before–

Lane: What is that? What does that mean?

Trump: Economic development incentives for companies. Incentives for companies to be here. Incentives for companies to do things.

D’Vorkin: What kind of incentives?

Trump: And it’ll be a great bill. It’s something I’ve had. I just don’t want to do it before I do health care–

Lane: So business, like Carrier? Business incentives to create jobs, keep jobs?

Trump: So that when companies leave our country, they get penalized severely. So that when companies stay in our country, they’re incentivized. But there won’t be any more companies, and it’s really stuck. I hope you have seen–again, this is an interview where I am doing the talking, I guess–but I hope you’ve seen that companies are moving back into our country. You saw Toyota, five plants. Other companies, car companies are moving back into our country. They are expanding their plants.

Lane: So is it a carrot–

Trump: We have a lot of–

Lane: So is it a carrot to get companies to stay and/or grow? Or is it a stick that you penalize?

Trump: It’s both. It’s both. It’s both a carrot and a stick. It is an incentive to stay. But it is perhaps even more so–if you leave, it’s going to be very tough for you to think that you’re going to be able to sell your product back into our country.

Lane: How comfortable are you, as a businessperson, having the government involved in a business decision about where a company wants to locate? And where a company wants to put jobs.

Trump: Very comfortable, because there’s no tax if you stay. There’s no tax. We have to protect our companies. And if you looked at what’s happened, they’ve been ravaged by the stupidity of politics and, frankly, the stupidity of politicians. They’ve been ravaged. And we have to protect our companies. We have to protect our workers. And the only way you’re going to do that is you have to create rules. I mean, when you talk about, Randall, when you talk about fairness, do you think it’s fair that some countries charge us 100% tariff, or tax, to sell a product in their country? And yet the same product coming out of that country coming into our country comes into our country for no tax. See, that makes it unfair for our companies. And what I want to do is reciprocal. See, I think the concept of reciprocal is a very nice concept. If somebody is charging us 50 percent, we should charge them 50 percent. Right now they charge us 50 percent, and we charge them nothing. That doesn’t work with me.

Lane: You are also taking steps with the corporate tax rate. Which I think there’s a lot of consensus on that.

Trump: Yes.

Donald Trump has hallucinatory meltdown in bizarre new interview 

1 Share

For months, Palmer Report and others have been pointing out that Donald Trump’s mental faculties have been in sharp and accelerating decline. His tweets are incoherent. When he goes off-prompter during speeches, he becomes unintelligible. Even Republican Senator Bob Corker is acknowledging that Trump can’t function without his babysitters. Trump’s bizarre new interview serves to underscore that point, as it ranges from delusional to outright hallucinatory.

Donald Trump spoke at length with Randall Lane of Forbes Magazine for a feature story. The first detail to get outsized attention has been Trump’s insistence that he and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson should compare IQ test scores, a fittingly idiotic response to Tillerson’s earlier assertion that Trump is a “moron.” But other aspects of this interview serve to demonstrate just how far removed from reality Trump has become. It’s not just that he’s lying, which he’s always done. It’s that he appears to actually believe some of the hallucinatory claims he’s making – and he appears to expect that the public will believe this stuff as well.

At one point in the interview, Trump brags about all the major legislation that he and the Republican Congress have passed since he took office. Of course in reality, everyone knows that his dysfunctional nature has helped prevent the Republicans from being able to pass anything of importance. At another point, Trump says how pleased he is that the Senate had just announced his campaign had no collusion with Russia – but the Senate didn’t announce any such thing. There are plenty more examples.

What might be most remarkable about this Donald Trump interview is that his newly promoted White House Communications Director Hope Hicks was sitting beside him the entire time. According to the transcript, at multiple points, as his answers began to go off the rails, she interjected and tried to wrap up the interview prematurely. In each instance, Trump overruled her and kept babbling. He can’t even function with supervision. Read the entire bizarre Forbes interview here.

Donald Trump responds to Las Vegas shooting by hiring new senior adviser who’s a total gun nut 

1 Comment and 3 Shares

In the days after the mass shooting in Las Vegas, which shook mainstream Americans to their core and strengthened the majority’s resolve in demanding increased gun control, Donald Trump has shown precious little leadership of any kind. Now he’s finally making a major move which relates to guns: he’s hiring a clearly demented gun addict as his latest White House senior adviser.

Trump is hiring J. Hogan Gidley as a White House Deputy Press Secretary, according to a tweet from CNN reporter Jim Acosta (link). Gidley has previously worked for violent, gun-addicted faux-Christian white supremacist Mike Huckabee, but not that much is known about Gidley himself. So we visited his Twitter profile, and we promptly found this:

That’s right, as of the time of publication of this article, J. Hogan Gidley has a Twitter profile picture in which he’s holding a gun in one hand and a dead animal in the other. If he’s a gun owner and a hunter, then so be it. But when your profile picture consists of you holding a gun in your hand, it’s clear that your entire worldview is based on gun addiction and violent bloodlust for killing things. In his Twitter bio directly under his jarringly violent profile picture, he defines himself as being “Christ alone” – suggesting he’s one of those demented conservatives who equates violent bloodlust with a perverted version of Christianity.

Although J. Hogan Gidley’s Twitter account @JHoganGidley is not verified by Twitter itself, recent tweets from Mike Huckabee and Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirm that this really is him. This means that Donald Trump has finally responded to the Las Vegas shooting, by hiring someone who appears to have a dangerously unstable relationship with guns. Trump’s base will love this hire, but his support base is shrinking – and real Americans will simply be horrified by this.

Robert Mueller will use “idiot” Carter Page to blow Donald Trump’s Russia scandal wide open 

1 Share

No one among the public has been able to piece together precisely what role Carter Page may have played in Donald Trump’s Russia scandal, because no one can even figure out what role he truly played in the Donald Trump campaign. He was officially a Trump foreign policy adviser, and had communications with the Russians going back a few years. In fact Russian spies have been caught calling him an “idiot” as they bragged they were using him (link). Now it’s become clear that Special Counsel Robert Mueller will use Page to get to Donald Trump.

Carter Page announced today that he’s changed his mind and he’ll now refuse to show up and testify about the Trump-Russia scandal for the Senate Intelligence Committee. He’ll invoke the Fifth Amendment instead (link). Legally, this does not mean Page is guilty. But it probably means that he expects to be charged with one or more federal crimes, and therefore doesn’t want to risk unwittingly aiding his own prosecution by testifying.

In other words, Robert Mueller is targeting Carter Page, and Page knows it. This is a game changer. Mueller is already targeting Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn, but those parameters are different. Both of those men are alleged to have committed the kinds of crimes that could send them to prison for life. Neither is likely to get a free pass even if they do flip, which explains why they’ve dug in their heels. But then there’s Carter Page.

Even if Page didn’t commit any crimes in his role in the Trump-Russia scandal, he could still find himself facing obstruction charges for refusing to cooperate as a witness. It’s easy to picture Robert Mueller offering Carter Page a free pass in exchange for flipping on Donald Trump. It’s just as easy to see Page taking it. All Mueller needs is one person to flip, and the scandal is wide open from there.

The increasing specter of a military coup against Donald Trump

1 Share

Even as the United States Constitution huffs and puffs and tries to put out the fires being set daily by Donald Trump, his deranged criminality continues to expose the limitations of a two century old document that we had hoped was infallible. Now that it’s become clear just how psychologically unstable Trump is, we have another problem on our hands: the specter of a de facto military coup.

This week Republican Senator Bob Corker sounded the alarm on Donald Trump’s unstable nature, while pointing that a pair of retired military Generals – James Mattis and John Kelly – may be the only ones currently standing in the way of nuclear armageddon. Vanity Fair writer Gabriel Sherman appeared on MSNBC this week and said that a prominent Republican has privately told him he imagines a scenario in which Mattis and Kelly have to physically tackle Trump as he lunges for the nuclear launch mechanism. In such a scenario we’d all want to root for Mattis and Kelly, but therein lies the problem.

General Mattis is the Secretary of Defense, but has no legal or Constitutional authority whatsoever when it comes to interfering with the actions of the U.S. President. General Kelly is merely the White House Chief of Staff, and has no authority of any kind. Even if these two men were still active Generals, they’d still have no authority to override the President. If Trump were attempting to launch a nuclear missile, and they physically tried to stop him from doing so, they’d be engaging in a coup.

In such a scenario, the Secret Service would be legally required to arrest Mattis and Kelly on the spot – but would they do it? If Trump was a few seconds away from sealing all our deaths with the press of a button, with whom would the Secret Service ultimately side? With whom would the military itself side? Much as we’d all like Trump ousted, military coups have a fairly bad historical record of getting democracies back on track when they’ve gone awry. If two legally powerless retired Generals are the only reason we’re all still alive, that alone means Donald Trump must be impeached by Congress and removed immediately.

Donald Trump spitefully lays the groundwork for firing General John Kelly 

1 Share

For the past week we’ve seen increasing hints of it from behind the scenes. Now it’s coming from Donald Trump’s own mouth: this evening he began publicly laying the groundwork for ousting General John Kelly as his White House Chief of Staff. The most jarring part is that Trump’s decision to go full-frontal against Kelly is coming just one day after Bob Corker publicly opined that Kelly was just about the only thing keeping Trump from falling apart – thus suggesting that Trump is now looking to oust Kelly out of spite.

On Tuesday evening, Trump tweeted “The Fake News is at it again, this time trying to hurt one of the finest people I know, General John Kelly, by saying he will soon be fired. This story is totally made up by the dishonest media.The Chief is doing a FANTASTIC job for me and, more importantly, for the USA!” Here’s the kicker: by and large, the media is not reporting this to begin with. No major news outlet has reported that Trump is considering firing Kelly.

To be frank, Palmer Report is the only news outlet that’s even broached the topic this week – and we doubt Trump is sitting around reading us. Instead, Trump is tweeting this so that it will become a headline story for the mainstream media. The media should have picked up on the signs this past week, from Trump bumping Kelly off Air Force One at the last minute (link), to Trump’s people leaking the story about Kelly’s phone having been hacked over the summer (link). Trump was trying to soften up the ground for firing Kelly, but the media largely didn’t bite – so now he’s trying a more direct approach.

The most disturbing aspect of this may be the timing. Donald Trump has clearly wanted to get rid of John Kelly for at least a week. But now that a Republican Senator is humiliating Trump by pointing out that Kelly is his babysitter, Trump is suddenly taking a more direct approach for trying to oust Kelly. This suggests he’s being motivated out of sheer spite.

Donald Trumps own adviser publicly attacks him

As Donald Trump continues to unravel and go further off the rails, he’s facing increasing pushback from all sides. His own Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called him a moron. Bob Corker, a Senator from his own party called him a toddler. America’s most famous athlete LeBron James called him a bum. Rapper Eminem called him things last night that are unprintable. Now even one of Trump’s own close longtime personal and political advisers is publicly attacking him for his behavior.

Trump doesn’t appear to legitimately have any real friends, but rather a collection of sycophants and partners in crime. The closest thing he has to a friend might be Thomas Barrack, who has served as one of Trump’s closest political advisers despite largely keeping himself out of the public eye in the process. But it appears Barrack has had enough. He’s staging what amounts to a de facto public intervention, by slamming Trump in a rare interview.

Barrack is telling the Washington Post that he’s “shocked” and “stunned” at Trump’s awful behavior and awful policies (link). Of course no one is actually surprised that Trump is acting this way; his deterioration is merely a logical extension of his awful behavior and policies during the campaign. But Barrack is clearly trying to use the media to send a message to Trump, saying “In my opinion, hes better than this.”

That’s the kind of passive-aggressive attack you only invoke when you’re trying to convince a friend that he’s lost his way. Tom Barrack could pick up the phone and say it to Donald Trump directly. Instead, he doesn’t appear to believe that would go far enough. Instead, Trump is now being publicly attacked by a guy who’s not only one of his closest advisers, but probably his only friend. It’s a sign that even those who know Trump and sympathize with him think he’s gone scarily off the deep end.

The post Donald Trump’s own adviser publicly attacks him appeared first on Palmer Report.

Donald Trump goes berserk over nuclear weapons, threatens to pull the plug on an entire TV network

Donald Trump apparently wants the ability to nuke any country he wants, and the ability to nuke any television network he wants. That’s the upshot after a TV network reported that Trump is looking to increase America’s nuclear arsenal tenfold and Trump responded by not only refuting the report (even though it’s thoroughly well sourced), but also by explicitly threatening to pull the plug on that network.

Trump has been attacking NBC News on a regular and escalating basis since it reported last week that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had called Trump a “moron.” Now NBC is reporting a new inside story about Trump wanting to vastly increase the nuclear arsenal (link), at a time when even members of his own party have begun publicly pointing out that he’s too mentally unstable to be anywhere near the nuclear launch codes. The story was enough to send him off on the kind of berserk tirade that serves to prove his detractors right.

This morning Trump tweeted “Fake NBC News made up a story that I wanted a “tenfold” increase in our U.S. nuclear arsenal. Pure fiction, made up to demean. NBC = CNN! With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!” Because NBC is a broadcast network, Trump appears to believe that he can have the FCC revoke its broadcast license or transponder, literally pulling the plug on the network’s broadcasts.

It’s never been entirely clear whether the federal government has the authority to do so, because as has so often become the refrain during the Donald Trump debacle no other president has ever floated the idea of doing such a demented thing. Trump’s desire to increase the nuclear arsenal tenfold is enough of a reason to immediately impeach him. His threat to shut down NBC is just as valid of a reason for his ouster.

The post Donald Trump goes berserk over nuclear weapons, threatens to pull the plug on an entire TV network appeared first on Palmer Report.

Congressman introduces Articles of Impeachment against Donald Trump on House floor

The impeachment process is a thousand steps, and this is merely Step One, but it officially happened today. Congressman Al Green has introduced articles of impeachment against Donald Trump today, reading them aloud on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives. What may be most important here is that no one else in the House is even trying to interrupt him.

To be as clear as possible, a majority vote in the House is required just for impeachment hearings to begin and there is absolutely no indication that enough House Republicans are currently willing to side with the Democrats in order to start those hearings. But while Al Green’s articles of impeachment are not likely to lead to any imminent impeachment hearings, this is a major symbolic step in the process. The most important aspect in this process may be that Green’s speech is airing live on CSPAN and will receive airtime on various cable news networks. From a strategic standpoint, Green’s timing is perfect.

This comes just three days after Republican Senator Bob Corker stated for the record that he believes Donald Trump is going to get us all killed because he’s too psychologically unstable for the job. Because Corker is from Trump’s own party, that kind of thing goes a long way toward convincing the American middle which already largely doesn’t support Trump that it is indeed time for him to be ousted. Al Green’s articles of impeachment will receive significant attention from the media and the public because the discussion is already underway as to whether Trump is mentally unfit for office.

Congressman Al Green has been threatening to introduce these articles of impeachment for some time, and he appears to have been waiting for when he could land the most impact in the court of public opinion. Going forward, the question on the minds of the public may now be why the Republicans are refusing to impeach Donald Trump.

Donald Trump adviser Carter Page pleads the fifth as Trump-Russia scandal explodes 

1 Share

Yet another high profile Donald Trump campaign adviser has announced that he’ll be invoking the Fifth Amendment in order to try to avoid testifying before Congress about his role in the Trump-Russia scandal. While this will deprive the viewing public of getting to watch what might have been explosive testimony, it’s a sign of just how explosive the scandal has become for Donald Trump behind the scenes.

The latest Trump campaign adviser to plead the fifth is Carter Page, in response to the Senate Intelligence Committee’s request that he show up and testify (link). In return the committee can subpoena him anyway, and if a judge agrees, he can be legally compelled to come in for questioning. At that point Page would either be arrested for contempt of Congress, or he could show up and simply answer every question by saying he’s invoking the Fifth Amendment. But how the Senate side of this plays out is less important than what this means for the overall investigation – specifically the one being run by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

In legal terms, if you invoke the Fifth Amendment, it’s not an admission or indicator of guilt. Instead you’re saying that if the government wants to build a case against you, it’ll have to do so without your help. Perhaps you consider yourself to be innocent, and you believe you’re going to be maliciously prosecuted. But in practical terms, this is likely an indicator that Carter Page believes he’s going to be prosecuted for crimes related to the Russia scandal. That’s where this becomes a big deal.

Robert Mueller is already in the process of pursuing criminal prosecution against Donald Trump campaign advisers Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn, in order to pressure them into flipping on Trump. What we’re seeing today is an indicator that Mueller is probably pursuing (or about to pursue) something similar against Carter Page. Mueller only has to get one of these guys to flip on Trump. The more he adds to the mix, the more explosive this gets for Trump himself.

The Full Transcript Of The President’s Interview With Forbes

1 Share

President Donald Trump sat down for an interview with Forbes Magazine Editor Randall Lane and Chief Product Officer Lewis D’Vorkin in the Oval Office on Friday, October 6th. White House Communications Director Hope Hicks also sat in. This is the unedited transcript from the interview, which lasted 50 minutes.

Randall Lane: You’ve always talked about having fun as a key to business. Are you having fun?

Donald Trump: I am having fun. I’m enjoying it. We’re accomplishing a lot. Your stock market is at an all-time high. Your jobs, your unemployment is at the lowest point in almost 17 years. We have fantastic numbers coming out. And I think we’ll have, over the course of the next, fairly short period of time, and more importantly over a long period of time, we’re going to have great numbers coming out of our country.

Lewis D’Vorkin: What’s your personal thought?

Trump: I enjoy success. And we’re having tremendous success, as a country. We have some difficulties with respect to North Korea, the Middle East. I inherited– and I’ve said it often–I inherited a mess. The country was having many different problems. Among them, the Middle East, ISIS, which we’ve done more with respect to ISIS in nine months than we’ve done in nine years. But we have really done, we have done, I would say eight months in eight years, to be specific. But we have done a really, really good job with the military. We’re building up our military. We just had an over $700 billion budget, which will be approved. We’re, you know, there’s been few times where the military was more important than what it is right now. And, in addition to that, which is by far the overriding element, it’s lots of jobs in the United States. So, what the country is doing, we’re doing very well. And on an economic front, we’re doing very well.

Lane: Now that we’re almost a year from the big upset and the big win, do you think your business background prepared you for this job? And were you ready, now that you have a year in?

Trump: Well, I think it helped. It’s certainly a different kind of job than, really there is anywhere. Because you have so many skills necessary. But certainly the campaign was successful. What people don’t realize is that I spent much less money than Hillary Clinton. So right there, perhaps that’s business. You know, if you look at the numbers it’s astronomically different.

Lane: Yeah.

Trump: I don’t think anybody’s ever written that. You know, in the old days, if you spent less money and won, that was supposed to be a good thing. Today nobody talks about it. But I spent much less money and won. I think that’s–so we start off there–I think that was good. I also think that, yes, being in–just last night I had dinner with all of our generals and admirals, at the highest level. You probably saw that.

Lane: Yeah, I saw the picture right here. Yeah.

Trump: It was lovely. It was fantastic. But I talked about business. I said, “Your equipment is coming in too slowly and at too great a cost.” And I actually got involved in negotiating, as an example, the F-35 fighter with Lockheed. You may call Marillyn [Hewson], the head of Lockheed, who you know, I think.

Lane: Mhmm.

Trump: And she’s a terrific person. But I developed a bidding system between Boeing and Lockheed. And I was able to reduce the price of the Lockheed by billions of dollars. By billions of dollars. And this took me, actually, a very small amount of time. And I read a story, and this when I was president-elect, had not come here yet. And I called the military. I said, “What’s the problem?” We met with the generals. I then met with Lockheed. I then–the generals were unable to get anything off the price. And in fact, they wanted to raise the price and claim extras. And I met with Marillyn [Hewson], from Lockheed. I then went and had a very frank discussion with her. I then met with Boeing, and I said, “Well, we’re going to come out with a competing plane.” And then went back to her. And I went back and forth. And the end result is billions and billions of dollars have been taken off the cost of the plane.

Lane: Well, again, you’re negotiating with them. You have obviously a lot of negotiation skills that you bring.

Trump: And that’s one thing. There are many, many things that I was too late into the game for the President Gerald Ford aircraft carrier. But it took too long to build, and it was way over budget. And you know, those things, we’re being much more conscious as a country about things such as that.

D’Vorkin: So you’ve had pain points in business, obviously.

Trump: Well, I don’t know.

D’Vorkin: If you–

Trump: Pain points?

D’Vorkin: In other words, obstacles that you have to overcome.

Trump: Oh, sure. You always have obstacles.

D’Vorkin: So, if you take away the politics of being president, and what you’re trying to do with the economy, what are the obstacles that you are finding that you necessarily didn’t find in your business life?

Trump: Well, you have Congress. That’s a big obstacle in many cases. You have, in some cases, well-meaning people in Congress that truly feel strongly about something. And I understand that and actually don’t mind that. And then of course you have grandstanders and others that want to try and make a point or want to do something that really isn’t necessarily in the best interests of the country. And those people I fight. And what people don’t know is that I’ve had just about the most legislation passed of any president, in a nine-month period, that’s ever served. We had over 50 bills passed. I’m not talking about executive orders only, which are very important. I’m talking about bills. We’ve had a tremendous amount of legislation passed. Like VA accountability, which nobody could get passed. Meaning people are accountable now, because before you couldn’t do anything if you caught people who worked there doing very bad things. But many, many bills have been passed. And now we’re going for taxes. I will get health care. I’m one vote short of health care. I’ll get health care. And I think block-granting it back to the states is going to be a great thing to do. I think it’ll be great for the people. Smaller government, great for the people. They’ll be able to handle it better. But we’re one–

Lane: Are you talking about the Graham-Cassidy bill?

Trump: Yeah, I like it very much. I do. I like it. It’s block-granting. It’s granting the money back to the states.

Lane: Right, right.

Trump: And you have a smaller form of government that’s going to be able to do–if they do a proper job–that will be able to do. There are certain states where they are very well run. And I could name them. I could name certain states where they really–they will do miracles with that money, in terms of health care. It’ll be far better than it is. Because Obamacare has failed, badly. So I’m working on that now. But we actually, I would say, I either have the votes or I’m one vote short. And I believe we’ll get health care done sometime prior to the election.

Lane: With Obamacare, until you come up with something different, don’t you feel there’s a lot of things going on with Obamacare right now, where, don’t you feel you need, as CEO of America, an obligation to make it run as good as it can while it’s still the law of the land?

Trump: Well, that’s an interesting, that’s a very interesting question. It’s a failed concept. It’s thousands and thousands of pages. It’s been amended by additional thousands of pages. It’s a total mess. The premiums are going up, you know.

Lane: But while it’s still the law, don’t you think, you know, we’re cutting back on advertising, we’re shrinking the window of signing up, so–

Trump: Well, we’re actually, what we’re doing is trying to keep it afloat, because it’s failing. I mean the insurance companies are fleeing and have fled. They fled before I got here. But with that being said, no, Obamacare is Obama’s fault. It’s nobody else’s fault. In fact, if you go back to–

Lane: Yes, but now it’s your administration’s responsibility.

Trump: Yes. But I’ve always said Obamacare is Obama’s fault. It’s never going to be our fault. With that being said, I think the Democrats want to make a deal. At the same time, I think I have a deal with the Republicans. So I have the best of both worlds. That’s business to a certain extent–

Lane: Right.

Trump: –when you asked the business question. And as you have noticed, I’m very able to make deals with Democrats if I have to.

Lane: Who have you found so far are better deal-making partners, the Ryan-McConnell set or the Pelosi-Schumer set?

Trump: Well, the Republicans have something called the filibuster rule. Which is a disaster. And if they don’t get rid of that, it’s always going to be very tough for them. You know what that is.

Lane: Yes, well, of course.

Trump: The filibuster rule is–

Lane: It’s a disaster when you’re in the majority. It’s a friend when you’re in the minority.

Trump: Well, you need eight Democrat votes every time. I mean, they literally need eight Democratic votes. And, they keep it for the sake of history. But history is that, in 1789, when it all began, what it actually, when they started voting, it was 1789, the first votes, that was a simple majority. And we should go back to a simple majority. If we had the filibuster rule, if we had the 60 votes for Justice Gorsuch, he would not be sitting on the bench right now because for the judges that has been taken off. And part of my plan is that the Democrats would take it off in two minutes. And the Republicans–

Lane: Well, they didn’t when they had a majority.

Trump: Well, they were going to. Well, they did it for the judge. Don’t forget, 95 percent of that work was done before we got there. So I think the filibuster rule is very bad. At the same time, I think if we pass taxes, I think we’ll have health care and taxes before. I believe we’ll have a great infrastructure bill before, which is easiest of all of them. In fact, I think I’ll have more Democrat votes for infrastructure than I will Republican votes. And I also have another bill that I think will be very–an economic development bill, which I think will be fantastic. Which nobody knows about. Which you are hearing about for the first time. But I’m going to do that. But before–

Lane: What is that? What does that mean?

Trump: Economic development incentives for companies. Incentives for companies to be here. Incentives for companies to do things.

D’Vorkin: What kind of incentives?

Trump: And it’ll be a great bill. It’s something I’ve had. I just don’t want to do it before I do health care–

Lane: So business, like Carrier? Business incentives to create jobs, keep jobs?

Trump: So that when companies leave our country, they get penalized severely. So that when companies stay in our country, they’re incentivized. But there won’t be any more companies, and it’s really stuck. I hope you have seen–again, this is an interview where I am doing the talking, I guess–but I hope you’ve seen that companies are moving back into our country. You saw Toyota, five plants. Other companies, car companies are moving back into our country. They are expanding their plants.

Lane: So is it a carrot–

Trump: We have a lot of–

Lane: So is it a carrot to get companies to stay and/or grow? Or is it a stick that you penalize?

Trump: It’s both. It’s both. It’s both a carrot and a stick. It is an incentive to stay. But it is perhaps even more so–if you leave, it’s going to be very tough for you to think that you’re going to be able to sell your product back into our country.

Lane: How comfortable are you, as a businessperson, having the government involved in a business decision about where a company wants to locate? And where a company wants to put jobs.

Trump: Very comfortable, because there’s no tax if you stay. There’s no tax. We have to protect our companies. And if you looked at what’s happened, they’ve been ravaged by the stupidity of politics and, frankly, the stupidity of politicians. They’ve been ravaged. And we have to protect our companies. We have to protect our workers. And the only way you’re going to do that is you have to create rules. I mean, when you talk about, Randall, when you talk about fairness, do you think it’s fair that some countries charge us 100% tariff, or tax, to sell a product in their country? And yet the same product coming out of that country coming into our country comes into our country for no tax. See, that makes it unfair for our companies. And what I want to do is reciprocal. See, I think the concept of reciprocal is a very nice concept. If somebody is charging us 50 percent, we should charge them 50 percent. Right now they charge us 50 percent, and we charge them nothing. That doesn’t work with me.

Lane: You are also taking steps with the corporate tax rate. Which I think there’s a lot of consensus on that.

Trump: Yes.

Donald Trump has hallucinatory meltdown in bizarre new interview 

1 Share

For months, Palmer Report and others have been pointing out that Donald Trump’s mental faculties have been in sharp and accelerating decline. His tweets are incoherent. When he goes off-prompter during speeches, he becomes unintelligible. Even Republican Senator Bob Corker is acknowledging that Trump can’t function without his babysitters. Trump’s bizarre new interview serves to underscore that point, as it ranges from delusional to outright hallucinatory.

Donald Trump spoke at length with Randall Lane of Forbes Magazine for a feature story. The first detail to get outsized attention has been Trump’s insistence that he and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson should compare IQ test scores, a fittingly idiotic response to Tillerson’s earlier assertion that Trump is a “moron.” But other aspects of this interview serve to demonstrate just how far removed from reality Trump has become. It’s not just that he’s lying, which he’s always done. It’s that he appears to actually believe some of the hallucinatory claims he’s making – and he appears to expect that the public will believe this stuff as well.

At one point in the interview, Trump brags about all the major legislation that he and the Republican Congress have passed since he took office. Of course in reality, everyone knows that his dysfunctional nature has helped prevent the Republicans from being able to pass anything of importance. At another point, Trump says how pleased he is that the Senate had just announced his campaign had no collusion with Russia – but the Senate didn’t announce any such thing. There are plenty more examples.

What might be most remarkable about this Donald Trump interview is that his newly promoted White House Communications Director Hope Hicks was sitting beside him the entire time. According to the transcript, at multiple points, as his answers began to go off the rails, she interjected and tried to wrap up the interview prematurely. In each instance, Trump overruled her and kept babbling. He can’t even function with supervision. Read the entire bizarre Forbes interview here.
