1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Robert Mueller has Donald Trump’s vote rigging scheme nailed

Earlier this week Paul Manafort’s lawyers accidentally publicly revealed what Special Counsel Robert Mueller already privately knew: Manafort gave the Donald Trump campaign’s internal polling data to Kremlin representatives and then lied about it to Mueller. This was a fairly clear giveaway that the Trump campaign conspired with Russian hackers to alter the vote totals. Now it turns out Mueller has the whole thing nailed.


Robert Mueller already interviewed Donald Trump’s top campaign pollster eleven months ago. This is being newly reported by CNN, which spotted the pollster in question leaving Mueller’s office back in February of 2018. CNN says that the observation didn’t seem significant until this week’s news that Manafort was giving the polling data to the Kremlin. Why is this so important?


Immediately after Donald Trump was named the winner of the 2016 election, it was widely reported that Paul Manafort had told Trump to go campaign in Michigan and Wisconsin in the final days of the campaign. At the time, it was already known that Manafort owed millions of dollars to a Russian oligarch.


If Manafort was telling Trump to make a strange last minute move like campaigning in “unwinnable” states like Michigan and Wisconsin, it had to have been because the Kremlin told Manafort to have Trump do it. The only reason for the Kremlin to do this would be that its hackers had already rigged those two states in Trump’s favor, and it wanted him visible there, so people would be less shocked when he “won” those two states.




Earlier this year the Senate Intelligence Committee quietly released a bipartisan report confirming that Russian hackers penetrated the voter registration databases in key swing states, allowing them to delete voter registrations. This was how Russia “rigged” the vote total: before election day, it took away the ability of a number of people to vote in districts and precincts that heavily favored Hillary Clinton. When these people showed up to vote, they were simply turned away. Most of them would have simply left. Some surely cast provisional ballots, but those don’t end up counting if your registration is missing from the system.



Now we have confirmation that Robert Mueller was already onto this scheme a year ago, and was already actively tracking it down. In other words, he’s got the Trump-Russia vote rigging scheme nailed. It’s a reminder that Mueller is very far ahead of the public on a large number of aspects of the Trump-Russia criminal scandal, and we’re getting closer than ever to the whole truth coming out.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: FOUR WEEKS NOTICE


Based on what he’s been tweeting today, Michael Cohen is so eager to publicly testify before the House Judiciary Committee, he’s practically salivating. The committee has had plenty of time to set up the logistics, and realistically, they could have Cohen testify tomorrow if they wanted to. So the question of course is why the committee is choosing to wait four weeks. There’s a rather obvious explanation for this.



If Michael Cohen were to publicly testify tomorrow, all he could talk about would be the two existing felony counts against Donald Trump, unless he were looking to reveal new information. While we all want to hear what Cohen has to say, and Robert Mueller surely has no problem with Cohen doing this, it would seem really odd for Mueller to let Cohen be the first one to reveal new Trump crimes. Yet Cohen made clear on Twitter today that he intends to dish on far more than just the two felonies.




The most logical explanation here is that Special Counsel Robert Mueller and/or the SDNY have told House Judiciary Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings that by February 7th, a lot more about Donald Trump’s Cohen-related crimes will have been made public. The only other explanation would be that Cohen plans to publicly reveal things that prosecutors don’t want out there yet, which would make no sense, as Cohen is desperately hoping prosecutors will listen to his testimony and then decide to help him get a more lenient sentence.



The bottom line here is that we’ve just been served four weeks notice. Everyone with inside knowledge of the situation is making plans around the expectation that a major reveal will be made about Donald Trump’s crimes between now and February 7th. Indictments and legal proceedings don’t always go according to planned schedule, so it’s entirely possible they’re leaving a four week gap because they’re hoping things will be out there in two weeks, or three weeks. Bottom line: stay tuned.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Donald Trump | The Guardian: Who will pay for Donald Trump’s border wall?

With the US government in partial shutdown, the president continues to demand funding for his Mexican border wall. Lauren Gambino, in Washington DC, and Bryan Mealer, in Texas, discuss how Trump’s central campaign promise has led to this point of paralysis. Plus, John Harris looks back to the optimism of 1989

Donald Trump has visited the southern US border in Texas after walking out of talks to resolve one of the country’s longest government shutdowns in history. The president has refused to authorise the release of funds to pay up to 800,000 government workers until he secures funding for his central campaign promise of a border wall.

The Guardian’s US political correspondent, Lauren Gambino, joins Anushka Asthana to discuss the paralysis in the US government and why the president is so fixated on building his wall. And, as Trump tries to rally support in Texas, the Guardian’s Bryan Mealer reports that there is indeed a crisis at the border, but one largely of the president’s own making. Refugees and asylum seekers are facing appalling living conditions in detention centres struggling to cope with new arrivals.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Even Fox News ends up bailing on Donald Trump’s psychotic border press conference


Donald Trump traveled all the way to the U.S.-Mexico border today, simply so he could hold a toothless press conference that ended up being as much of a snoozer as his Oval Office address. CNN and MSNBC treated the stunt like the non-event that it was, but Fox News at least tried to hang in there with him. Then things reached a point where even Fox felt it had to bail.



Trump sat in a room with some border patrol people, along with piles of cash, guns, and drugs, creating the unwitting appearance that perhaps he was preparing to go on the lam in order to avoid the criminal charges he was facing. America wouldn’t get that lucky, of course. Instead Trump merely rambled on like a racist version of Grandpa Simpson, making no sense, and making everyone uncomfortable.




At one point Donald Trump began telling made-up stories about people driving across the border with women who had electrical tape over their mouths, and that’s when Fox News decided to abruptly cut away from the debacle. You can decide if Fox was disgusted by what Trump was saying, or if Fox was merely trying to protect Trump from his own meltdown.



Either way, even Donald Trump’s buddies at Fox weren’t willing to prop up his border stunt for very long. Of course as soon as the disaster ended, the news broke that Michael Cohen is scheduled to voluntarily testify in public about Donald Trump’s crimes before the House Judiciary Committee. Oops.
