1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (196 sites): Palmer Report: Maxine Waters totally owns Steve Mnuchin while he’s testifying before her House committee

  •

You’d think by now that the Trump regime might have figured out not to mess with Congresswoman Maxine Waters. Donald Trump spent two years hurling thinly veiled racist attacks at her, and it only served to elevate her stature as she became Chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee. Now Trump’s Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin tried taking on Waters directly today, and let’s just say that it didn’t go well for him.



Mnuchin was scheduled to testify before Maxine Waters’ committee today, and at the last minute he informed Waters that he had an important meeting this evening with the leader of Bahrain, and that he would be leaving the hearing at 5pm whether it was finished or not. At best, Mnuchin would have known about this meeting well in advance, and purposely waited until the last minute to inform Waters. At worst, Mnuchin made a point of scheduling this meeting at the last minute so he’d have an excuse to bail on his testimony if it wasn’t going well for him.



Either way, Maxine Waters wasn’t having it. She told Mnuchin that he was free to get up and walk out, but she made no movement to call the hearing to a close. He seemed confused, and perhaps afraid that he if did try to leave without permission, she’d have him arrested for contempt of Congress. Waters didn’t have to make any specific threats, as the implied threat was working well for her; at one point Mnuchin meekly asked Waters to bang her gavel so he could leave, but he mistakenly called it a “gravel” – setting off numerous jokes across Twitter.


Of course the larger point here is that another House committee, the House Ways and Means Committee, is currently in the process of pulling Donald Trump’s tax returns. Steve Mnuchin, as the head of the Treasury Department, is legally prohibited from interfering with this process – but it’s widely expected that Trump will instruct him to illegally try to interfere anyway. So it’s noteworthy that as this tax return battle heats up, Maxine Waters the House Democrats appear to have Mnuchin running scared.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (196 sites): Palmer Report: Trump can run but he can’t hide

  •  
  •  
  •

Even as he autocratically spent the past few days ousting everyone from his Homeland Security Director to his Secret Service Director to his own nominee for ICE Director in an effort to consolidate his own executive power, Donald Trump somehow found enough time to whine about how he’s the real victim in all this. In the process, he may have given something away.



Here’s what Donald Trump had to say about his current predicament: “The Democrats will never be satisfied, no matter what they get, how much they get, or how many pages they get. It will never end, but that’s the way life goes!” He was presumably referring to the Mueller report, his tax returns, his Capital One banking records, and the other potentially incriminating documents that House Democrats are seeking as part of their constitutional oversight process.



Trump is correct in that whatever he decides to turn over won’t be enough. He tried having his handpicked Attorney General William Barr release four pages of nonsense in place of the Mueller report, but it was such an inaccurate representation of what was in the still-secret report, Mueller’s own team sounded the alarm. Now that the first round of BS has failed, Barr will try releasing a version of the report that’s strategically redacted to remove all the bad stuff about Trump. When that fails, Trump and Barr will cook up some other dishonest stunt while the court battle plays out over the subpoena for the full report.


Similarly, we can already guess that Donald Trump will instruct his Treasury Secretary to initially release a “summary” of his tax returns, or a heavily redacted version of them. Trump is 100% full of crap, always has been, and so of course he’ll try to BS his way through this. It won’t work, but he’ll try anyway. So yeah, the Democrats will indeed “never be satisfied, no matter what they get, how much they get, or how many pages they get,” because whatever Trump gives them, it’ll be a bunch of horse crap aimed at avoiding having to give them the real thing. Trump can run from these probes, but he can’t hide.
