1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Robert Mueller could be just five days from a massive victory over Donald Trump

The widely accepted conventional wisdom, including here at Palmer Report, is that Special Counsel Robert Mueller will likely line up his big endgame moves to coincide with the Democratic Party takeover of the House. Mueller’s precise schedule is anyone’s guess, and it certainly won’t all happen on the first day Congress is in session. But now, even before that, Mueller could be just five days away from a major victory over Donald Trump of a different kind.




There has been some understandable confusion and consternation about what it means that Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts has placed a hold on the recent U.S. Court of Appeals ruling in favor of Robert Mueller and against a mystery foreign company. It’s not that Roberts has made a move against Mueller. Instead, Roberts has simply set a deadline – and a very swift one – for the Supreme Court to collectively decide whether it wants to hear the case.




The decision must be made by December 31st. If the Supreme Court decides to take on the case, it will presumably be given the same level of priority that the case was given in appeals court. In such case we might not have to wait too long before getting a ruling. On the other hand, if the Supreme Court decides not to hear the case, that’s the end.



In such case, the mystery company will be required to immediately turn over the mystery evidence that Robert Mueller has been so eager to get his hands on – and let’s be real here, there’s little doubt that this evidence severely incriminates Donald Trump. So yeah, Robert Mueller could be just five days away from a massive victory over Trump, just before the Democrats take over the House.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Donald Trump: Trump Brags To Troops About A Fictional Giant Pay Raise He Got Them

  •

  •  
  •  

The president told military personnel in Iraq that they’ll get a raise of over 10 percent, their first in a decade. But it’s 2.6 percent, and they get a hike every year.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: What the hell is wrong with this guy?

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

On The Rachel Maddow Show on Wednesday, guest host Joy Reid exposed the “President” Donald Trump for the fraud he continues to be. In an attempt at showing how hard he was working (that was the first clue), Trump apparently staged a series of photos that are about as legitimate as his boast to the troops today in Iraq:




“You haven’t gotten [a raise] in more than ten years…And we got you a big one. …I said no. Make it ten percent. Make it more than ten percent. Because it’s been a long time.”


Of course, this series of sentences is a string of four letter words: lies. As noted, on Friday, Trump had a photo taken of him at the Resolute Desk, with a stack of items he said were bills. It appears that the “bills” he is purporting to sign are blank. Then, on Monday, he posted a photo of himself and his team apparently discussing North Korea. However, according to reporters and those watching, no Marines were in front of the White House, so that photo probably wasn’t taken on Christmas Eve. Finally, once he got to Christmas Eve, Trump tweeted about a very long contract that likely he did not hand out, especially given that there is no funding for the wall:




“I am in the Oval Office & just gave out a 115 mile long contract for another large section of the Wall in Texas. We are already building and renovating many miles of Wall, some complete. Democrats must end Shutdown and finish funding. Billions of Dollars, & lives, will be saved!”
This is not how any of this works. In addition, as a lawyer, I know we are verbose, but a contract that is 115 miles long? Wow, that is some serious terms and conditions.



More and more each day the “President” is becoming the Mad King, bereft of any semblance of reality. Then again, reports are that the podiatrist, Dr. Larry Braunstein, may have found some imaginary bone spurs for the most famous cadet as a favor to Fred Trump, so Trump has been used to living a fantasy life. Bigly sad that he is now in the spotlight by his own choosing, and he’s being exposed each day for what he truly is.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Nancy Pelosi zings Donald Trump over his shrinking wall gambit

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


Earlier this month Donald Trump told Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer in front of the television cameras that he was willing to shut down the government if that’s what it took to get his border wall built. Trump has since indeed shut the government down, because no one is going to pay for his stupid, racist, pointless wall. Trump has been retreating even while pretending to stand his ground, and Pelosi just called him out for it.




Donald Trump started off by insisting that he would build a concrete wall across the border. He’s since changed that into a combination of walls and fences. Now he’s settled on a “steel slat barrier” complete with a mock-up that looks like it was made by a kindergartner with a broken computer. It’s clear that Trump has settled on this design because someone is looking to kick part of the funding back to him. But it’s also quite a retreat on Trump’s part, because this isn’t a wall.




In a new interview with USA Today, Nancy Pelosi pointed out the increasing absurdity involved: “[Trump] says, ‘We’re going to build a wall with cement, and Mexico’s going to pay for it’ while he’s already backed off of the cement – now he’s down to, I think, a beaded curtain or something.”



Donald Trump has nowhere to go from here. It’s clear that Congress is not going to give him the funding for his wall/fence/curtain/piñata whatever it is. If he reopens the government without getting the funding, his racist base will turn against him. If he keeps the government shut down long enough, dragging the stock market down further, the big-money conservatives will seek his ouster. Trump can’t win. Perhaps they can hang a beaded curtain in his prison cell.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump idiotically exposes secret Navy SEAL mission during his Iraq visit

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


Just when you think Donald Trump’s desperate and stunt-like visit to Iraq can’t get any worse, it has. Trump finally visited U.S. troops in a conflict zone for the first time ever, in an effort to distract from his worsening bone spurs scandal and the resignation of General James Mattis. And yes, Trump told the troops they’d gotten a big pay raise that doesn’t exist. But he also managed to expose a secret military mission by being careless on Twitter.




It turns out the Iraq trip was so poorly and carelessly slapped together by Donald Trump and his White House, they followed no protocols about which troops he was seen visiting with. In a self-congratulatory video posted to Trump’s Twitter account, he’s seen mingling with members of SEAL Team Five. The trouble: according to a lengthy expose by Newsweek tonight, SEAL Team Five’s presence in Iraq was classified. But it didn’t stop there.




In case America’s enemies weren’t paying close enough attention to Donald Trump’s Twitter account, he also took a selfie with the chaplain for SEAL Team Five. To be clear, absolutely none of this is remotely the fault of any of the U.S. personnel on the ground in Iraq. They take orders from “President” Donald Trump, and they were merely following his lead.



Now that the secret Navy SEAL mission in Iraq has been exposed by Donald Trump’s narcissism and opportunist incompetence, it’s a given that their mission there will be more difficult and/or dangerous; secret missions are kept secret for a reason. This is on top of the fact that Trump committed treason by conspiring with Russia to rig the election, and isn ‘t the “President” of anything.

Donald Trump has made his first visit as president to US troops serving overseas with a surprise appearance at Al Asad air base in Iraq. During a speech to troops, Trump congratulated them for achieving what he called a ’near elimination’ of Isis. Trump’s visit comes after he pledged a major drawdown of US military presence in Syria . ‘America shouldn’t be doing the fighting for every nation on earth,’ Trump told troops, adding that the US wouldn’t be helping to rebuild Syria. ‘We’re no longer the suckers, folks. We’re respected again as a nation’

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump goes completely off the deep end while speaking to troops in Iraq

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

After Donald Trump’s Secretary of Defense resigned in protest, and just as confirmation was surfacing that Trump really did fake bone spurs to dodge the Vietnam War draft, he suddenly showed up in Iraq last night to do something he’s always tried to avoid: visiting with U.S. troops in the field. The stunt was an insult to the military to begin with – and that was before Trump opened up his deranged mouth.




Donald Trump told the troops in Iraq that he had somehow landed them a big pay raise, saying this to them: “You haven’t gotten [a raise] in more than ten years. More than ten years. And we got you a big one. I got you a big one. I said no, make it ten percent. Make it more than ten percent, because it’s been a long time.”


For the record, every word of this is a lie, and no one can even seem to figure out what Trump is even talking about. The U.S. military receives cost of living raises on a regular basis, and it has nothing to do with anything that Trump has ever said or done. Nor can anyone figure out why Trump is claiming to have somehow managed to land the troops a major pay raise while he has the federal government shut down.




This can only serve to backfire. When the news first broke that Donald Trump had visited the troops in Iraq, some (though not all) major news outlets ran with the obligatory feel-good narrative, while ignoring the shady context and timing of his visit, as well as his historically poor record of visiting the troops. But because Trump said something asinine to the troops, it’ll change the mainstream media narrative.



Also, the troops surely know they haven’t received any such raise, and that Donald Trump is simply lying to them. Or if they haven’t figured it out, they will when the raise never shows up in their paychecks. So now the troops in Iraq know with absolute certainty that Trump is indeed the dishonorable jackass that General James Mattis recently accused him of being.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Matt Whitaker caught red handed

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


When Donald Trump decided to illegally install scam toilet guy Matthew Whitaker as his illegitimate Acting Attorney General, it was a given that the story would only get worse from there. Best anyone can tell, despite refusing to take the DOJ’s advice to recuse himself, Whitaker hasn’t been able to do anything to sabotage the Trump-Russia investigation. Instead, he’s gotten caught red handed in yet another scandal.




Matt Whitaker played football at the University of Iowa, and he’s proud of bragging about it. He’s also been keen to brag about having been an Academic All-American in college, to the point that he’s listed it on his resume and in government documents. When you have no real qualifications for the job, you might as well play up what you can, right? Except, as it turns out, even this part is a scam.




Whitaker was never named an Academic All-American in college, as newly exposed by the Wall Street Journal. That’s not the kind of thing you’d get confused about or misremember, which means that Whitaker has been faking his resume for his entire career, and hoping that no one would bother to look it up.



This is the kind of scandal that, in any legitimate administration, would probably get Matt Whitaker fired. Donald Trump picked Whitaker for explicitly criminal purposes, so he’s obviously not going to suddenly fire Whitaker over this. But the more scandalous Whitaker becomes in general, and the more negative attention on him, the less leverage he’ll have in terms of screwing with the Trump-Russia probe.
