1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump’s most horrifying scandal yet

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

One of my biggest worries about Donald Trump being elected wasn’t so much what he would do as president (though that has shown to be a very valid concern with each passing day), but what he wouldn’t do: that he would sleep in and watch TV while terrible things happened to the country and people he put in positions of power would abuse that power recklessly.


While Trump spends 60% of his day in uncharted “executive time,” horrific crimes against humanity are being committed with meager coverage from the “unfair media.” One is the administration’s appalling response to Hurricane Maria, where 3,057 American citizens were left to die. The other is his reprehensible border policy, which goes far beyond his deranged demand for a wall. Yes, the administration encouraged separating parents from their children at the border and no, they weren’t “just obeying orders” from some previous administration.




Despite Judge Dana Sabraw ordering an end to family separation last summer, reports of what is happening at the southern border get more draconian by the day. As per a report from the Texas Civil Rights Project, Customs and Border Protection agents are now deciding the fate of young asylum seekers on their own terms. One father was accused of being a gang member with no evidence, another was accused of forging his daughter’s birth certificate. Despite DNA testing that proved she was his daughter, they were separated for a month.




Sabraw ruled that families may be separated if the parent is deemed a danger to their child. As there are no judges or child welfare specialists involved, the decision is up to the agency alone – something that agents have clearly chosen to exploit. Donald Trump and Stephen Miller may be proud avatars of white nationalism, but they’re hardly the only ones to blame, as we see children die in American custody and bigger detention centers being built. There could be any number of dangerous bigots infiltrating the ranks of CBP and ICE – emboldened by the administration’s hateful rhetoric.



The American Civil Liberties Union has plans to address this abuse in their lawsuit to reunite families. Meanwhile, we are long overdue for an intensive congressional investigation into the leadership of CBP and ICE. Then, the conversation needs to open to better means of providing legal counsel to asylum seekers. For these agencies to say they don’t have the resources to track down all of the children whose lives they ruined is simply not an excuse.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: The real reason Sarah Huckabee Sanders didn’t resign when she was supposed to

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has resumed making dishonest and idiotic defenses of Donald Trump’s crimes and lies, prompting a number of Palmer Report readers to ask why she’s still on the job. CBS News reported last summer that she and her Deputy Raj Shah would resign by the end of the year. Shah is now gone, but Sanders is rather oddly still there.




We recently learned that Special Counsel Robert Mueller interviewed Sarah Huckabee Sanders about the obstruction of justice antics she’d been carrying out from her briefing podium, and that right around that timeframe, she largely stopped doing press briefings. She still pops up in interviews to defend Trump from time to time, but she seems to be choosing her words carefully and speaking rather generically these days. It’s fairly clear that she knows she’s facing legal trouble – so again, why is she still on the job?




If you’ve been made aware that you’re in legal trouble for having conspired with your boss to commit a crime, and your boss is the President of the United States, you only have two options. The smart move is to cut a plea deal against your boss, and seek no prison time in exchange for your cooperation. The dumb move is to remain on the job and remain allied with your boss, under the delusion that he cares enough about you to pardon you in the end.



Sarah Huckabee Sanders is, as we’ve all seen time and again, rather dumb. But we’d imagine Robert Mueller filled her in on her precarious legal situation in the kind of simple terms that even she can understand. So the question is this. Is she still on the job because Mueller advised her to go back and spy on Donald Trump? Or is she still on the job because she’s truly stupid enough to think she’s getting pardoned? Take your pick.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Robert Mueller’s new filing against Paul Manafort implicates a certain Republican Congressman

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

Special Counsel Robert Mueller dropped an eight hundred page bomb on Paul Manafort today, exposing the details of essentially every crime Manafort has ever committed in his life. There’s no mention of Donald Trump, but as we’ve explained, that’s a good thing for the Resistance, and a bad thing for Trump. However, a certain Republican politician does get mentioned, and not in a good way.


One of Mueller’s attachments exposes Paul Manafort’s circa-2013 strategy to illegally lobby the United States government to support the Kremlin-controlled Yanukovich regime in Ukraine. It reveals that Manafort and his associates managed to convince the “Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee” to get on board, and to apparently go so far as to frame the Kremlin puppet government as if it were “pro-western”:




This doesn’t necessarily incriminate the Chairman, but it certainly does implicate the Chairman as having had a relationship with Paul Manafort that was – at the least – criminal on Manafort’s end. The question of course is whose name is blacked out. For historical reference, Republican Congressman Ed Royce became the Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee on January 3rd, 2013. However, the name “Ed Royce” is too short to take up the amount of space that’s been blacked out, so it’s not him, unless there are additional words blacked out next to his name. Interestingly, Royce announced his retirement at the start of 2018, and is no longer in Congress.




There is another possibility here. It’s long been widely reported that Robert Mueller is investigating Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher’s extensive ties to the Kremlin in general, and to the Trump-Russia election conspiracy in particular. Rohrabacher’s name would pretty much exactly fit within the blacked out space above. The catch is that he wasn’t the Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee; he was the Chairman of one of its subcommittees. Rohrabacher sought reelection in 2018 but lost. Intriguingly, Ed Royce reportedly stopped Rohrabacher from going to Russia in 2017.



Whoever it is, it’s now more clear than ever that Robert Mueller’s investigation has gone far beyond the Trump-Russia 2016 election conspiracy, and has reached members of Congress who may have had some criminal connection to the primary Trump-Russia players. This comes after a filing last year which asserted that a still-unnamed 2016 candidate for Congress sought a copy of the emails that Russian hackers stole from the DNC and gave to WikiLeaks.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Everyone piles on after Donald Trump quotes some guy no one has even heard of

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


Donald Trump’s fragile ego and narcissistic underpinnings have long motivated him to seek out praise for himself, no matter the respectability of the source, and then trumpet that praise as if it were legitimate. For instance, Trump will quote pretty much anyone on Fox News who says nice things about him. But even some of Trump’s longtime pundit cheerleaders have started to sour on him.




If you want evidence of just how desperate Donald Trump has grown and how far he’s fallen when it comes to finding sycophants he can quote, he ended up posting this tweet on Saturday night: “‘There’s not one shred of evidence that this president’s done anything Constitutionally (or anything else) wrong.’ Graham Ledger. Thank you Graham, so true!”




This prompted just about everyone on Twitter to cry out at once: Who is Graham Ledger? That doesn’t even sound like a real name. Has Lindsey Graham gone into the witness protection program? Is the “Graham Ledger” the name of a fake small town newspaper? To give you an idea of how thoroughly the internet ended up laughing at Donald Trump for quoting this guy, the name “Graham Ledger” ended up trending on Twitter, simply from everyone piling on.



If you’re wondering, Graham Ledger is the host of the “The Daily Ledger” on the One America News Network, a comparatively obscure cable news channel that’s so embarrassingly and dishonestly pro-Trump, it makes Fox News look legitimate in comparison. That’s right, Donald Trump has now sunk to watching positive coverage of himself on the OANN channel, because it’s the only place he can reliably still find it.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: The real reason the New York District Attorney is finally going after Donald Trump

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


On Friday, New York County District Attorney Cyrus Vance let it be known that he was bringing unpardonable state-level criminal charges against Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort. He was sending a clear signal that he’s planning to charge every criminal in Trump’s orbit, including Trump and his kids. But wait a minute, wasn’t Vance the guy who let Trump’s kids off the hook a few years back?




Yes it is, as a matter of fact. Back in late 2017, the New Yorker exposed that Cyrus Vance was in position to criminally indict Donald Trump Jr and Ivanka Trump in 2012, and that he dropped the whole thing after Donald Trump’s attorney made a sizable donation to Vance’s campaign. Vance also let Harvey Weinstein off the hook after a similar donation. Then in late 2018, the New York Daily News reported that the FBI was investigating whether this counted as Vance taking an illegal bribe.




At the time, Palmer Report wrote that “At the least, this new federal investigation into Vance could place additional pressure on him to try to right his own wrong by bringing Ivanka and Don Jr to justice.” Sure enough, now Vance is making a point of bringing criminal charges against Paul Manafort, even though Manafort is already going to prison for life. It sure looks like Vance is trying to keep the legal heat off himself by targeting Trump’s people as quickly and loudly as he can.



We have no way of knowing if Cyrus Vance is still under FBI investigation. Has he been cleared? Is the probe still ongoing? Will he be indicted and removed? We don’t know. But we do know that Vance is now very much acting like a guy who thinks he has to do something to show that he’s not corruptly in the pocket of wealthy criminals like Donald Trump. Even if Vance hasn’t seen the light, he may have simply decided to try to cover his tracks. In any case, Vance is now making a point of targeting Trump’s people. We’re sure the New York Attorney General won’t allow Vance to let Trump’s people off the hook this time.

ANAHUAC, TX (WFXL) — According to the Federal Aviation Administration, Atlas Air Flight 3591, a Boeing 767 cargo plane, crashed into the Trinity Bay near Anahuac, TX, 30 miles outside of Houston’s airport.

The plane appears to have been flying for Amazon Prime Air, according to flight tracking site FlightRadar24.

The FAA says the crash happened just before 12:45 p.m. local time Saturday as the plane was flying from Miami to Houston.

“I really thought it was thunder. Then my son said ‘I just heard a plane go down.’ I said what do you mean you just saw a plane do down? He’s like ‘Mom, it went straight down. Let’s go to the water and see’.” said crash witness Candace Dockens Chavez.

“It didn’t make sense cause like, that’s what you would see in a movie. It never happens. Nobody ever sees that,” said witness Daniel Chavez.

Three crew members were on board the plane, says the FAA in a Tweet.

Chambers County Sheriff Brian Hawthorne says his agency is responding to eyewitness and an FAA confirmation that a large commercial plane crashed into Trinity Bay.

Hawthorne told sister station KFDM that from the appearance of the wreckage, he doesn’t believe “anyone” could have survived.

There have been no official confirmation as to the condition of the three crew members on board as the search and rescue operations continue.

Editor’s Note: This story was updated with witness quotes and the appearance of the wreckage to Sheriff Hawthorne.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: The terrible news for Donald Trump in Robert Mueller’s new Paul Manafort court filing

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s sentencing memo against Paul Manafort was publicly released today in redacted form, and with all the attachments, it totaled more than eight hundred pages. There’s terrible news in there for Donald Trump, but you have to read between the lines to find it.


When we say “read between the lines” we’re not talking about the voluminous black redaction bars, though some of them are intriguing in their own right. Instead, we’re talking about something that isn’t in Mueller’s court filing at all: any mention of the Donald Trump campaign colluding with the Russian government to alter the outcome of the election. Trump’s fans are seeing this as a victory, and the pessimists in the Resistance are wringing their hands over it. But that’s not how anything works.




There is Trump-Russia election collusion. We know this based solely on the numerous and systemic instances of Trump-Russia election collusion that have been reported by so many different major media outlets. Donald Trump’s delusions aside, it’s not all merely “fake news.” It’s just a matter of how Mueller is going to make that evidence public.




Let’s say that Robert Mueller is currently boxed in by new Attorney General William Barr, and he doesn’t think his final report about Donald Trump will properly see the light of day. In such case, Mueller would need to try to put as much of the evidence as possible against Donald Trump into documents such as court filings against Paul Manafort, which Barr would have a more difficult time stopping, because such filings are court-mandated.



The total lack of Trump-Russia collusion in the Paul Manafort filing is a clear sign that Robert Mueller is highly confident about his ability to publicly expose the evidence against Donald Trump through more powerful means. It’s frustrating for the public to wait a bit longer, but it’s now clear that Mueller feels he has an unobstructed path to exposing Trump’s crimes.
