1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: “The beginning of the end of the Trump presidency”

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


So just how bad is it for Donald Trump today? After all, he’s been caught plotting with Russian election meddlers during the 2016 election to build Trump Tower Moscow. Then again, up to now, Trump has managed to survive one ugly shocking revelation and criminal scandal after another. So is he finally toast? Let’s check in someone who would know.



How about we ask Neal Katyal, the former Acting Solicitor General of the United States, who spent time working in the uppermost rungs of the Department of Justice, and has some familiarity with the criminal and political implications here. Katyal appeared on Hardball with Chris Matthews this evening and didn’t mince words. He said that today will go down as the “beginning of the end of the Trump presidency.” We’re inclined to agree. What happens next?





We think that depends on how Donald Trump wants to go down. He can resign right now, in the hope that the nation will simply drop the whole thing and move on out of relief, though that’s not his pattern. Based on what Trump usually does once he realizes he’s going to lose (see his six bankruptcies), he may try to negotiate his exit in exchange for as much criminal leniency as possible. How much would Robert Mueller, and for that matter America, be willing to give this guy just to get him to go away?


Then there’s the scenario in which Donald Trump decides to drag this out as long as possible, because he doesn’t see any way out, or because his deranged mind wants to go down in flames. In such case House Democrats would have to bring impeachment charges, and use the impeachment process to figuratively beat him up so badly, there would be nothing left of his presidency for him to cling to, and he’d have to walk away. In any case, Trump is indeed at the beginning of his end.

How did a forum for global cooperation become a stage for authoritarians? The Guardian world affairs editor, Julian Borger, analyses the G20 ahead of the summit in Buenos Aires with the help of the Guardian’s foreign correspondents. Plus William Davies on why we stopped trusting elites

When the G20 first met in 2008, it was in the heat of a global economic meltdown as world leaders worked together to help stabilise the plunging financial markets. But for the G20’s 10th birthday summit, the mood around the table has changed. Some of the biggest countries including the US, China, Brazil, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Turkey are run by populist autocrats and authoritarians.

Joining Anushka Asthana is the Guardian’s world affairs editor, Julian Borger, who is in Buenos Aires for the summit. He says the focus will be on a series of bilateral relationships, particularly between Donald Trump and China’s Xi Jinping, Russia’s Vladimir Putin and Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. We hear from the Guardian’s foreign correspondents Tania Branigan, Andrew Roth and Martin Chulov.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump’s bluff backfires

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

Donald Trump is growing increasingly desperate. His unhinged behavior is clearly spiraling out of control with each new revelation that reveals Special Counsel Robert Mueller knows everything. Whether it is the decades of money laundering, selling out America to foreign adversaries to steal an election, or the pathetically transparent coverup, Mueller knows all, and Trump is terrified. Things are getting so bad for him, Trump cannot even make it through an entire Christmas tree lighting ceremony without panicking and running back to the White House without any explanation.



Trump’s desperation is even more evident in an interview he gave to the New York Post on Wednesday. Asked about how he will deal with the multitude of congressional investigations into his many crimes once Democrats take power in the House in January, Trump could not help himself and blatantly threatened anyone thinking about looking into his many crimes.


“If they go down the presidential harassment track, if they want go and harass the president and the administration, I think that would be the best thing that would happen to me. I’m a counter-puncher and I will hit them so hard they’d never been hit like that,” Trump claimed. Clearly not aware of the limits to his power, Trump even threatened to declassify documents from Mueller’s investigation.




However, it is evident that Trump is simply bluffing in the hope that his threats alone might save him. But I highly doubt soon-to-be committee chairs like Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters, Jerry Nadler, and Elijah Cummings will be scared off by an empty threat. When asked why he hadn’t already released the “devastating” documents, Trump claimed “It’s much more powerful if I do it then, because if we had done it already, it would already be yesterday’s news.” That’s clearly a lie. If Trump had anything he thought could hurt congressional Democrats he would have released it before the midterm elections, knowing that retaining control of the House was his last best chance at avoiding the coming onslaught of investigations.


John Dean, who served as White House Counsel under Richard Nixon, called out Trump’s bluff in a tweet, “This is pure bluff by Trump and shows how he doesn’t understand that he can’t declassify, for example, grand jury testimony or Court sealed documents. Come Jan. 3 Trump’s life is going to change with Congressional oversight.” If there’s anyone who has watched the downfall of a presidency first hand, it is John Dean.

Per what’s being read in the courtroom, Michael Cohen apparently had conversations about a potential Trump real estate project in Moscow as recently as August, 2017.

More: Cohen had discussion about the project as late as August 2017. Cohen had previously said that the deal was stopped in January 2016.

There are new details on what precisely Cohen will plead guilty to this morning.

ABC is reporting that since Cohen’s guilty plea in August that he has sat for over 70 hours of interviews with special counsel Robert Mueller and his team.

“Cohen’s earlier plea deal with federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York implicated President Trump in campaign finance felonies. Since then, Cohen has spent more than 70 hours in interviews with Mueller’s team.”

The New York Times has more details on Cohen’s appearance in federal court in Manhattan this morning and CNN has confirmed his guilty plea as well.

Politico has details on what Nancy Pelosi told her most ardent critics yesterday in a private meeting.

Democratic rebels like Tim Ryan of Ohio and Kathleen Rice of New York have been pushing for Pelosi to set a timeline to step down. She did not agree.

“Instead, the California Democrat launched into a lengthy monologue about how successful she’d been throughout her career and how 2020 is a presidential year, so voters wouldn’t care who the speaker was next election.” https://t.co/3GG27zGDFY

ABC News is reporting that Michael Cohen will plead guilty this morning to lying to congressional committees investigating collusion.

Sinclair Broadcasting is on the defensive for a controversial segment where former White House aide Boris Epshteyn defended the use of tear gas on the US/Mexico border.

He said “the fact of the matter is that this is an attempted invasion of our country. Period. Our border must remain intact and secure.”

We’d like to take a moment and address some concerns regarding a commentary segment by @borisep that was aired on Sinclair stations this week. The opinions expressed in this segment do not reflect the views of Sinclair Broadcast Group.

A number of potential 2020 presidential candidates are headed to an event in Iowa later this month. Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon, Congressman Eric Swalwell of California and Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, will all appear at the Progress Iowa holiday party in Des Moines on December 20.

Good morning.

President Donald Trump is going to Argentina, the Senate will vote on the confirmation of a controversial federal judge and a government funding deadline has creeped ever closer.
