THE PRESS AND PUBLIC DISCOURSE

The New York Times reported on long-standing tension and a lack of chemistry between Trump and Tillerson, and NBC reported that Vice President Mike Pences intervention was required to keep Tillerson from resigning this past summer.Tillerson released a statement Wednesday morning denying that he was considering resigning his post.

The Washington Post reportedthat The already tense relationship between the two headstrong men…has ruptured into what some White House officials call an irreparable breach that will inevitably lead to Tillersons departure. A former senior Trump administration official, Tillerson has no help. No team, no natural allies, and hes not hiring anyone…Theres a kind of death spiral.

In a stunning admission of his concerns about Trump, Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) told C-SPAN, I think Sec. Tillerson, Sec. Mattis and Chief of Staff Kelly are those people that help separate our country from chaos, and I support them very much. He added, As I watch…very closely on many occasions, [Tillerson] ends up not being supported in a way that I would hope a Sec. of State would be supported.

President Trump tweeted angrily Thursday about NBC News and other reports on his conflict with Tillerson and on the Russia investigation. He urged NBC to apologize to America for its reporting and suggested that the Senate Intelligence Committee should focus on investigating Fake News Networks, a move many commented on for its resemblance to authoritarian leadership:

He also claimed that story that Tillerson threatened to resign wasnt true because Trump didnt verify it:

Trump also responded to media coverage of his administrations disaster response in Puerto Rico, implicitly criticizing the victims as ingrates:

The BBC reported that Trump told Puerto Rican officials on his visit there that they should be “proud” of not losing thousands of lives, like happened in a real catastrophe like Katrina. He added that the island had thrown the U.S. budget a little out of whack.

A Reuters/Ipsos poll found that Americans are increasingly confident in the news media and less so in President Donald Trumps administration after Trumps first year in office, during which he said the press was the enemy of the people.

A Committee to Protect Journalists official testified before the U.S. Helsinki Commission that declining media freedom in the United States and Europe has emboldened authoritarian governments in Russia and other ex-Soviet states to crack down on independent media and opposition voices.

The New York Times reported that a debate has emerged within the American Civil Liberties Union about whether the organization should continue to defend alt-right groups in First Amendment cases.

WHITE HOUSE AND ADMINISTRATION

POLITICO Magazine article noted that under Rex Tillersons watch as Secretary of State, [s]killed and patriotic diplomats are leaving like never before in an exodus that is damaging the United States. The exodus is undermining the institutional strength of the U.S. foreign policy apparatus and its ability to further U.S. interests for decades to come, as well as undermining the Trump administrations ability to achieve its own policy goals.

On Monday, Trump tweeted criticisms of Tillersons efforts to engage in diplomacy with North Korea, an unprecedented case of the President publicly undermining the efforts of his own top diplomat:

The New York Times reported that HHS Sec. Tom Price resigned because of a scandal involving using government funds to pay for over $400,000 in private charter jets flights. The Times added that Trump told reporters was unhappy with Prices expression of regret, rather than contrition, and his offer to pay only a partial refund to the government.

POLITICO reported that Sen. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) tried to save Prices job by urging White House Chief of Staff John Kelly to reconsider when Kelly courtesy called Ryan Friday morning to inform him that his close friend Price was about to be fired.

BuzzFeed reported that Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Mattis, and Treasury Secretary Mnuchin, have agreed to a suicide pact, an agreement whereby all three cabinet secretaries vow to leave in the event that the president makes moves against one of them.

POLITICO reported Monday that White House officials have begun investigating emails related to a  third, previously unreported email account on Jared and Ivanka Trumps private email domain.

Trump weighed in on the Virginia gubernatorial race on Twitter Thursday, extraordinarily accusing Democratic candidate, Virginia Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam of fighting for violent MS-13 killer gangs, while presenting no evidence for his claim.

FOREIGN POLICY AND NATIONAL SECURITY

The Washington Post reported that Trump is planning to decertify that Iran is in compliance with the  Iran nuclear agreement next Thursday, and to declare that the deal is not in the U.S. national interestTrump does not plan to recommend that Congress reimpose pre-agreement nuclear sanctions on Iran. Both Defense Secretary James Mattis and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr. expressed qualified support for the deal this week during congressional testimony.

The Post also reported that the move could start a chain of events that would sharply divide the United States from its closest traditional allies in the world, with a senior official from a European country that is a party to the deal adding, [T]his could push multilateralism to the breaking point.

Democratic Senators who met with National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster about the Iran Deal believed that he opposed decertifying it. The meeting was clearly intended for McMaster to get ideas from key Senate Democrats on how to avoid decertifying the Iran deal, which many in both parties think would destabilize relations with allies and make it harder to confront foes well beyond Iran, CNN reported.

The AP reported that Trump welcomed Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha, who took power in a coup, to the White House Tuesday. The meeting underscored shifting U.S. foreign policy priorities under Trump, emphasizing American trade and strategic interests over democracy and human rights in the nations it deals with, wrote the APs Matthew Pennington.

Oxfam America criticized the Trump administrations response in Puerto Rico as slow and inadequate, and pledged to take the rare step of intervening in U.S. disaster relief efforts there.

THE TRUMP-RUSSIA CONNECTION

POLITICO reported that CIA Director Mike Pompeo had turned down a Senate Judiciary Committee request by Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) to allow Committee members to view CIA documents related to the Russia investigation.

CORRUPTION AND CONFLICTS OF INTEREST

The New Yorker reported that the Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance dropped a potential criminal case against Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. in 2012, after Trump lawyer Mark Kasowitz donated twenty-five thousand dollars to D.A. Cyrus Vances re-election campaign and met with Vance to offer a settlement. Vance returned the contribution after Kasowitz got involved in the Trump case, and the case was dropped with no conditions weeks after Kasowitzs settlement offer.

The magazine added, In September, 2012, within weeks of the case being resolved, Kasowitz contacted Vances campaign about hosting a fund-raiser…He personally donated almost thirty-two thousand dollars to Vances campaign, and twenty of his law firms partners and employees kicked in at least another nine thousand dollars. Then, in October, 2013, as Election Day approached, he hosted a breakfast for Republicans for Cy Vance, which raised an additional nine thousand dollars.

NBC News reported that Donald Trump Jr. has participated in a series of paid appearances since his father won the Republican nomination, raising ethical concerns about whether he is benefiting financially from Trumps presidency. Trump Jr. has been paid as much as $100,000 for appearances at U.S. public and private schools and at least one in the UAE.

The Washington Post reported that Eli Miller, Steven Mnuchins chief of staff at the Treasury, flew on hedge fund billionaire Nelson Peltzs private jet to Palm Beach, Fla.. The Post called it the latest example of senior Trump administration officials using luxury air travel even though it often raises red flags with ethics officials.

The U.S. Office of Special Counsel concluded that UN Ambassador Nikki Haley violated the Hatch Act by endorsing Republican candidate Ralph Norman for Congress in South Carolinas Fifth District. The Hatch Act prohibits federal employees from using their positions to advocate for or against candidates for partisan office.

Slate reported that Trump, his key advisers and family members, and many members of his Cabinet have engaged in private use of public funds to varying degrees. In an article headlined, The Incredible Corrupting White House, Jamelle Bouie noted that the fact that these instances of corruption arent uniformly egregious, however, doesnt mean they arent significant…And while its tempting to say these are ultimately minor concernspocketing taxpayer dollars is nothing compared with provoking a confrontation with a nuclear-capable, isolated dictatorshipthe truth is that they matter as much as Trumps worst offenses.

CONGRESS

POLITICO reported that VP Mike Pences Chief of Staff, Nick Ayers, criticized Congressional Republican leaders at a closed-door meeting with wealthy donors, and called for a purge if Republicans of all stripes fail to unite behind Trumps agenda.

In an interview with Vice News, Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) pushed a conspiracy theory when he suggested that the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. may have been a false flag operation staged by left-wing individuals backed by George Soros. He added that Soros is a Hungarian Jew who turned his own people to the Nazis.

GOSAR: Well, isnt that interesting. Maybe that was created by the Left.

VICE News: Why do you say that?

GOSAR: Because lets look at the person that actually started the rally. Its come to our attention that this is a person from Occupy Wall Street that was an Obama sympathizer. So, wait a minute, be careful where you start taking these people to.

And look at the background. You know, you know George Soros is one of those people that actually helps back these individuals. Who is he? I think hes from Hungary. I think he was Jewish. And I think he turned in his own people to the Nazis. Better be careful where we go with those.

Donald Trump | The Guardian: Liberal guilt is over cosying up to the corporate elite | Letters

Liberals are anxious but fear opposing the powerful, says Hedley TaylorDevorah Baum (The long read, 3 October) refers to the guilt which modern-day liberals feel because they have lost faith in utopian politics and realise they are acting out of self-interest. The guilt, she concludes, is a sign of the gap between the empathy which liberals feel for others suffering and the little they can do to alleviate it. But this personalisation of liberal guilt is in itself a cop-out. It is not so much that liberals feel guilty, since they also experience great anxiety at their reduced status and relative income, but fear that it will only get worse if they take sides against the corporate elite. Liberals and centrists have played an honourable role, with support and pressure from organised working people, in wresting valuable reforms from the capitalist class. But mainly their history is one of cosying up with that class in the interests of preserving the privileges of the middle classes. These days, liberals are most likely to be found defending the actions of people like Clinton and Obama or, in this country, Tony Blair and the liberal social democrats whose pursuit of neoliberal policies has done so much to produce the present broken societies. Donald Trump and Jeremy Corbyn, with their quite different political agendas, have been able to take advantage of the mess they have left.

Donald Trump Deleted Some Embarrassing Tweets After Alabama Loss

The president wiped his messages in support of incumbent Luther Strange.

Donald Trump is out of gas

It should have been a layup, really. So few people turn out in special elections to begin with, let alone primary races in special elections, that Donald Trump only needed to drive a few people to the polls in order to ensure that his preferred candidate Luther Strange won. Trump went the extra mile. He tweeted about Strange obsessively. He traveled to Alabama to campaign for him. Not only did Trump miss the layup, he landed flat on his back with the basketball hoop lying on top of him.

How could Trump have, at the risk of mixing sports metaphors, swung and missed so badly? Alabama is the epicenter of Trump’s support base, no less. But the old adage has turned out to be as true as ever: when you’re a popular president, you can do anything you want, and when you’re an unpopular president, you can’t do anything.

Numerically speaking, Trump’s approval rating isn’t any lower now than it was a month or two ago. But that simply means that the people on the fence about him haven’t crossed the threshold of no longer supporting him at all. What we’re seeing now, and seeing rather clearly, is that Trump’s support among his supporters is softening. His remaining supporters can no longer be bothered to even so much as show up and vote in a primary race at his behest. They’re no longer willing to lift a finger for him, and there’s a reason for it: he’s a failure.

Trump’s base may still believe in what he’s selling, but they’re no longer so willing to believe in his ability to sell it. He’s been in office for eight months, and he hasn’t come through on nearly anything. His Obamacare repeal is a failure. His wall doesn’t exist. He promised these things would happen day one. Even his fans can see that he’s failing at this. It’s part of why he couldn’t motivate them to go vote yesterday. He’s simply out of gas.

Robert Mueller probing Russian oligarchs multimillion donations to Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell

Back in May of this year, Palmer Report brought you the story of how a Russian oligarch had donated millions of dollars to certain prominent Republicans in the 2016 election cycle, some of whom weren’t even up for reelection (link). Over the weekend it was revealed that this same oligarch has been helping to pay Donald Trump’s attorney fees in his Russia scandal. Now it turns out Special Counsel Robert Mueller is probing all of the above.

The Russian oligarch in question has dual U.S. citizenship, making it technically legal him for to donate as much money as he wants to the Super PACs associated with the Republicans in question. But if that money was being funneled from the Russian government through the oligarch into those Super PACs, it would be a different story. According to an ABC News report (link), Mueller is now tracing back these donations to see what he can learn from them, along with donations made by two other prominent Russian-connected businessmen. Among the other primary beneficiaries of these donations: two Republicans who were in position to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

Mitch McConnell received $2.5 million from the Russian oligarch in 2016, despite not being up for reelection. When the U.S. intel community uncovered evidence during the election that Russia was attempting to tamper with the outcome, it was McConnell who threatened to publicly accuse President Obama of partisanship if he dared to reveal the information to the American public. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker received $1 million. Trump went on to win Wisconsin in shockingly, and essentially impossible, fashion raising questions as to whether Walker may have used his role to somehow alter the outcome.

The oligarch has since begun paying Donald Trump’s attorney fees by donating the money to the Republican National Committee, which is then using it to pay Trump’s legal bills. This means, in effect, that the Kremlin is indirectly paying for Trump’s defense in the Russia scandal.

The post Robert Mueller probing Russian oligarch’s multimillion donations to Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell appeared first on Palmer Report.

Donald Trumps national anthem ranting takes its most bizarre turn yet

Whatever Donald Trump’s goal may have been when he decided to attack black NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem, he didn’t succeed. If he was trying to divide locker rooms along racial lines for his own benefit, it instead resulted in team unity. If he was trying to get NFL team owners to side with him, they sided with their players. And if he was just looking for a distraction, his Russia scandal isn’t going away. Now his anthem ranting has taken its most bizarre turn yet.

Over the weekend, more NFL players than ever took a knee as the national anthem played before their respective football games. NFL team owners stood arm in arm with their players, as some of those players took a knee. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones even took a knee with his players, just before the anthem. So how is Trump dealing with having lost this battle? Two words: Usain Bolt.

That’s right, Trump has decided to invoke the world’s fastest man in a bizarre attempt at keeping his feud with the NFL alive. He tweeted “Even Usain Bolt from Jamaica, one of the greatest runners and athletes of all time, showed RESPECT for our National Anthem!” But the included video merely shows Bolt pausing an interview while the anthem is being played. He didn’t want to talk over it. That’s not remotely the same thing as taking a knee during the anthem, which in no way interrupts the proceedings.

This also shows how badly Trump is reeling from having attacked two prominent black athletes, Colin Kaepernick and Steph Curry, on consecutive days. It gave away that his attacks were racially motivated. Now he’s feebly trying to push back against that notion by citing a black athlete who refused to talk over the national anthem. But even by Trump’s standards, none of it makes any sense. He’s trying to sustain a fight that he knows he’s already lost.

Meet the notorious characters who call Trump Tower home

1 Share

New York City’s most high-profile residential buildings are often home to some of the wealthiest—and shadiest—figures in the world. Take, for instance, the Time Warner Center, where members of the Saudi royal family and known corrupt Russian officials knowingly shack up. Or Walker Tower, where the purchase of a $50.9 million penthouse has been named by the U.S. government in connection to an international money laundering scheme.

It should come as no surprise that Trump Tower is no exception. Bloomberg has compiled an extensive, and rather epic, list of the building’s past and present occupants, shedding light on the international cast of characters who traverse the building’s gilded halls.

At that, following is a list of a handful of Trump Tower’s current residents, who include an embattled former sports administrator who plead guilty in a crime connected to the FIFA scandal, and Trump’s former campaign manager.

Donald Trump, Floors 66 through 68

Of course the Republican presidential nominee shacks up in the top floors of his namesake tower, hidden behind a grand entryway gilded in gold and diamonds. The palatial penthouse, Bloomberg reports, takes a tip from Saudi arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi: “One reason Trump’s triplex is so vast, he has written, is a trip he took to…Khashoggi’s condo nearby, where he stepped into a living room bigger than his own.” Trump, who has the best temperament, wanted to level up with a Saudi arms dealer. That’s reassuring.

Guido Lombardi, Floors 62 through 63

Real estate investor Guido Lombardi is a self-proclaimed Italian count, Trump supporter, and sympathizer with Italy’s anti-immigrant Northern League party.

Helly Nahmad, Floor 51

Art dealer Hillel Nahmad, of the Nahmad collecting dynasty, has been snatching up apartments on the 51st floor of Trump Tower since at least 1999, when he paid $2.5 million for Unit 51J. Years, and millions, later, Nahmad amassed the entire floor for a total $18.4 million. Nahmad was sent to prison for five months in 2014 for running a high-stakes gambling ring.

Related: the massive Panama Papers leak from earlier this year identified Nahmad’s father, David, as the owner of a Modigliani that the grandson of a Jewish art dealer claims was snatched from his grandparent’s shop in Paris during the Nazi occupation.

Ernie Garcia, Floors 48 through 49

The chairman of used car dealer DriveTime plead guilty to bank fraud in 1990 in connection to the collapse of Charles Keating’s Savings and Loan. Garcia was sentenced to probation, and currently takes up residence in the tower.

Paul Manafort, Floor 43

Trump’s former campaign manager, who resigned in August, has lived in Trump Tower since 2006. Manafort transferred the apartment from an LLC to his name in 2015.

Jose Maria Marin, Floor 41

If one must serve house arrest, Trump Tower is not too shabby of a place to do it. That’s the case with Jose Maria Marin, a former administrator of the Brazilian Football Confederation who’s serving a sentence in connection with bribery charges stemming from the FIFA crisis, to which he plead guilty.

Susetta Mion, Floor 32

Ivana Trump’s pal Susetta Mion, of the Italian fashion family, has been shacked up in a Trump Tower pad after allegedly looting her mother’s bank accounts and possessions and carting it all across the Atlantic in 2007. In an interview with Bloomberg, Mion called the issue a “family quarrel that’s being resolved.”

Juan Beckmann Vidal, Floor 31

Vidal’s name is not as well known as the liquor brand he controls: Jose Cuervo. The tequila bigwig owns three apartments in the building.

For a list of the colorful characters who formerly purchased in the building, including Andrew Lloyd Weber and Haitian dictator “Baby Doc” Duvalier, head on over to Bloomberg.

The specific weakness that’s cost Donald Trump everything

1 Share

Donald Trump has so many weaknesses, flaws, sins, and vulnerabilities that it would be difficult to list them all from memory. His life has been essentially a field guide for everything that’s wrong with humanity, and his legacy will be a cautionary tale. But there’s one weakness in particular that’s cost him everything – and it’s an ironic one, considering how much value he places on arrogant bluster.

Trump has gotten ahead in the business world over the years by accurately identifying the kind of wide-eyed greedy suckers who were ripe for his financial scams. He conned investors with too-good-to-be true deals, then simply kept their money and sued them if they tried to get it back. He relied on contractors that he knew he could get away with not paying. He found the kind of suckers who were eager to fall for scams like Trump University. He was adept that reading people. But then he went into politics, and something changed.

Maybe it’s because he’s in severe cognitive decline and he just can’t read people anymore, or maybe it’s because political figures are a different breed, but Donald Trump has shown himself to be remarkably bad at reading people during his time in politics. He thought Jeff Sessions was the kind of harmless doofus who would be personally loyal to him, when everyone else knew Sessions had survived as a corrupt politician all these years by being a self interested snake. When Sessions quickly recused himself in the Russia scandal in order to protect himself, Trump was the only one who was shocked.

When FBI Director James Comey put his finger on the scale in Donald Trump’s favor during the election, Trump took that as a sign that Comey liked him. In hindsight, Comey simply believed the FBI and its procedures to be more important than the real-world sanctity of the election process. So when Trump took office, he assumed Comey would protect him in the Russia investigation. Trump could have fired Comey on day one, and he’d probably have gotten away with it. But instead he waited until it was far too late, and by the time he did fire Comey, it blew up in his face.

Trump’s biggest misread of a fellow political figure might have come with his decision to latch onto Paul Manafort. Trump seemed to believe that because Manafort was a fellow scumbag who was also beholden to the Kremlin, the two would naturally watch out for each other’s interests. But now we’re learning that Manafort was only using Trump’s campaign as a way of getting out from under his Russian financial debts. We’re about to find out how Manafort managed to convince Trump to go along with this stupidity, once all those intercepted wiretapped phone calls between them inevitably surface. It’s going to come out that Manafort played Trump like a fiddle, and Trump was dumb enough to go along with it even though he was aware of Manafort’s every move.

During his time in politics, Donald Trump has consistently misjudged nearly every major political figure he’s encountered. It’s cost him time and again. It’s how he got himself incriminated in the Russia scandal to begin with. It’s how he ended up with a Special Counsel breathing down his neck, and flipping over every rock of his corrupt existence. Trump has lost everything; it’s just a matter of time. He’s lost it all because of his specific inability to read people correctly since he entered the political world. Contribute to Palmer Report

Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani trolls Donald Trump with poetry — Quartz

1 Share

A condom ad coming amidst one of India’s biggest festivals, and featuring a former porn star, has sparked outrage in the western state of Gujarat.

Furious traders have written to prime minister Narendra Modi’s government seeking a ban on the commercial hoardings—calling it an “irresponsible and immature attempt to boost sales by putting our cultural value system at stake.”

The complaint is against the Manforce condom ad in the coastal trading city of Surat. The local cops promptly brought down the hoardings. While the ad itself does not mention the word condom or sex, it does show Bollywood actress Sunny Leone and carry the tagline “Aa Navratrie ramo parantu prem thi”(This Navratri, play, but with love).

Navratri, or “Nine Nights,” which begins today (Sept. 21), is a festival observed across the country by most Hindus, who fast and pray for nine days. Piety apart, the festival is also a time to rejoice and make merry. Among Gujaratis particularly, it is marked by night-long social gatherings and community dancing—the Garba or Dandiya dance form being extremely popular.

With large parts of India still socially conservative, festivals like Navratri usher in some temporary levity and euphoria, increasing the chances of youngsters getting intimate with those of the opposite sex. “Children can do anything. Drugs, unprotected sex, and bad company are my main worry,” one parent was quoted by Reuters as saying under these circumstances.

According to the Los Angeles-based AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which works towards the prevention of the disease, there is even a perceived increase in the incidence of abortions post-Navratri festivities. “Sexually-transmitted infections also rise during this period,” said Dr V Sam Prasad, the organisation’s country programme director for India.

In any case, it is often reported that contraceptive sales hit the roof during Navratri, including in Gujarat. Not surprisingly, condom companies look to ride this spike.

However, Leone, a popular celebrity in India, being featured in the ad this time has earned the wrath of Gujarat’s Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT).

In the letter written to the Modi’s ministry of consumer affairs, CAIT national secretary general Praveen Khandelwal has said that the ad is “shouting out to encourage youths to use Manforce condoms in the name of Navratri festival.” It labels Leone’s presence in the ad as a sign “of lust of earning huge money…brand ambassadors can go to any level irrespective of the pious and religious occasion of Navratri even.”

An e-mail sent to Mankind Pharma, the maker of Manforce condoms, did not elicit a response.

India is a fairly complex market for condom companies.

Less than 5% of households in the country use condoms. Even among those who do use them, their sale or purchase is mostly a hush-hush affair, making it difficult for companies to market and sell their brands. In any case, they mostly rely on pharmacies and online stores for this rather than regular grocery or general stores.

Condom ad campaigns, too, are sanitised to not ruffle prevalent conservative attitudes too much.

However, signing up Leone as brand ambassador in 2012 did a world of good for Manforce condoms. It resulted in a spike in sales, making the brand the largest in the category by market-share.

It wasn’t surprising, considering how popular Leone. In 2016, she trumped prime minister Modi and Bollywood star Salman Khan to become the most searched for Indian personality on Google.

Meanwhile, despite Indians’ professed attitude towards sex, they are among the world’s biggest consumers of pornography.

“The problem really is the billboard. We are a ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ society. Sunny Leone is our goddess of the darkened movie theatre or our private bedrooms….When Sunny Leone winks at us from a billboard on a busy highway as we are headed to work or a family dinner, we look away nervously…Sunny Leone reminding us that we might have lustful thoughts during Navaratri embarrasses us even if the condom sales spike prove that she’s on the money,” journalist Sandip Roy wrote.

New evidence that Donald Trump is flat broke 

1 Share

Earlier this month I wrote about how Special Counsel Robert Mueller isn’t merely going to destroy Donald Trump, he’s going to reveal his most humiliating secret: Trump is flat broke (link). I got some pushback on it, from people asking how someone with assets in the billions can be broke. The answer is simple: if your debts are larger than your assets, and servicing your debt has left you cash-poor, you’re broke. Now there’s even more anecdotal evidence of just how broke Trump is.

This summer it was revealed that Donald Trump was using funds from his phony “2020 reelection campaign” to pay for his son Don’s legal bills in the Trump-Russia scandal. This in and of itself could have been written off as Trump simply being his scamming self. He sees his campaign fundraising as being his own personal money, so of course he spent it on his own personal interests. He’s also used his own charity as a personal piggy bank, while scamming money from his other son Eric’s charity. This doesn’t mean he’s broke, just that he’s a criminal scumbag. But now it turns out he’s skimming money from a different, and more eye popping, source.

Last night it was revealed that Trump has conned the Republican National Committee into paying his own legal bills (link). This is not easily pulled off. Trump has precious little influence remaining over the Republican Party. But he’s so desperate for yet another minor cash infusion to pay his lawyers, he’s using up that last bit of remaining goodwill with the RNC. As per usual, Trump is doing all of this for a relatively small amount of money. It’s a mere $230,000 – which for a billionaire should be not even be worth the trouble.

What stands out here is the time and trouble which Donald Trump is willing to go to, just so he can pilfer small amounts of cash. He lugged himself to his own resorts every weekend just so he could steal money from the Secret Service to the tune of $60,000 in golf cart rentals and such. That’s a ton of work for what should be the equivalent of a penny lying on the ground for a billionaire. That’s because he’s not a billionaire. His properties are over-mortgaged, he has hidden international debts, and a negative net worth. Donald Trump is flat broke. Eventually it’ll surface that the $1 million he donated to hurricane relief wasn’t actually his money either. He simply doesn’t have that kind of cash available.

Oligarch family in Trump Russia dealings sells New York apartment

1 Share

The oligarch tied to President Trump’s dealings in Moscow sold a multimillion-dollar apartment in Midtown as his family’s name began to surface in the Russia investigation.

Irina Agalarova, the wife of Kremlin-connected billionaire Aras Agalarov, closed the sale of her pad on W. 52nd Street at the end of June, according to city property records.

The two-bedroom property fetched more than $2.8 million, up only $300,000 from what the Agalarovs paid for it last February.

It was not immediately clear why the wealthy family, whose patriarch rose from his roots in the former Soviet republic of Azerbaijan to become one of the biggest real estate developers in Russia, chose to sell its Manhattan digs.

The sale, which had not previously been reported, closed roughly 15 months after the apartment was purchased.

Agalarov’s connections to Trump came under scrutiny as part of the probes into alleged Moscow meddling in the 2016 election.

Property documents list the Midtown apartment contract date as May 11, as investigations into possible Kremlin collusion with the Trump campaign heated up with the firing of FBI Director James Comey.

The family’s connections to Trump go back further, however, to when Emin Agalarov, the pop-star son of Aras, featured Miss Universe in a music video.

Trump-Russia investigation extends into Trump family businesses

That choice that later led to the family bringing Trump and his Miss Universe pageant to Moscow in 2013, with the then-reality TV star trotting out his catchphrase, “you’re fired,” in another of Emin’s Europop videos.

Trump and Agalarov also had discussions about creating a Trump Tower Moscow, which never materialized.

While Aras Agalarov had a passing mention in the unverified “dossier” against Trump published in January, his family was brought back into investigators’ orbit after Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, unveiled his list of foreign contacts in late June.

Those contacts included a June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer promising dirt on the Clinton campaign that Aras Agalarov had obtained from Moscow’s top prosecutor.

Eighth person at Trump Tower meeting identified as Ike Kaveladze

Emails show that Rob Goldstone, the British publicist for Emin Agalarov, told Trump Jr. that the information was part of the Russian government’s “support for Mr. Trump.”

Trump Jr. and others have said that nothing came of the meeting, which also included Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort, Kushner, Goldstone, Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, Russian-American lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin, a translator and Agalarov employee Ike Kaveladze.

News of the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting sparked interest in the oligarch family’s dealings, including that Aras Agalarov had put his posh home in Bergen County, N.J., up for sale in mid-June.

Real estate website Zillow shows that the listing was removed on July 14, in the aftermath of the Trump Jr. emails.

Scott Balber, a lawyer representing the Agalarovs in the U.S., told the Daily News Wednesday that the timing was not in any way a reaction to swirling investigations in Washington.

“There is absolutely no connection between selling these two properties to anything in the news,” Balber said.

“I can assure you that Mr. Agalarov knows a lot more about real estate investment than you or I do,” he said.

In fact, the Agalarov clan’s properties in New York, which public records show include two other apartments, are just a few tacks on the map of foreign buyers gobbling up Manhattan real estate.

The many mistakes and gaffes of President Trump’s legal team

David Reiss, a real estate expert at Brooklyn Law School, told The News the buyers from abroad can have numerous motivations for coming to New York including “getting real estate as an asset class, taking money from their home country and bringing it abroad so it can’t be clawed back by the local government, or to have another home for family members.”

While Balber trumpeted his client’s investment acumen as a reason for the sale, Reiss said that the $300,000 gain may have actually been a loss after other fees are included, raising questions about its use as an investment.

“In the context of the Agalarovs’ portfolio this is probably a very small item so it was unlikely that this was considered a significant investment by the family,” he said.

While Reiss said there are no indications of wrongdoing on the Agalarov’s part, money laundering has become a persistent worry as multimillionaires and billionaires stash possibly ill-begotten cash in Manhattan apartments.

President Trump’s outrageous UN silence on climate change

The building where the Agalarov family sold their apartment has previously been involved in accusations of wrongdoing over allegedly illicit money from the former Soviet Union.

The government of Kazakhstan filed suit against the building’s developer Chetrit Group in October 2015, saying that former officials Mukhtar Ablyazov and Viktor Khrapunov had used the property to funnel $40 million allegedly stolen from the Central Asian country.

Chetrit reached an unspecified with Kazakhstan shortly after, saying that the “dispute has been amicably resolved.”

More than $3 million of Ablyazov and Khrapunov’s money also into the Trump SOHO project through the future President’s partner Bayrock after the pair were charged with theft, according to a Financial Times investigation last year.

Balber told the News that he was not aware of the allegations that were made against Chetrit.

“We don’t know what these Facebook ads looked like, we don’t know who they were targeting, and we don’t know how many millions of Americans may have been exposed to them.”

Putin’s Pro-Trump Operation May Have Been Far Bigger Than We Yet Know
Did the Kremlin help make Trump the “first Facebook president”?
BILL BUZENBERGSEP. 20, 2017 6:00 AM

M.N.: And we have to know the answers to these and many other questions.

Putin’s Pro-Trump Operation May Have Been Far Bigger Than We Yet Know – Mother Jones

See also: 

If “Russia used Facebook to organize racist rallies to help Trump”, why can’t we venture a mental step further and assume that the increase in the incidents of mass shootings, aggression against the police, incidents  with the racial overtones, transportation accidents, all of which demonstrate the clear statistical “pre-election bumps” (hikes, increases), in 2008, and in 2012, and in 2016, were inspired, and/or conducted by the same actors, and with the same goal: to “elect” their candidate, which in 2016 apparently was Trump. Did we look into it?

The answer, (that all these listed phenomena are the hypothetical parts of the operational whole) is clear to me, on the basis of the daily monitoring of the press reports on these subject in 2015 and 2016. Compile and analyze the statistics, and I think, you might get the same or the very similar impression. See also posts on this subject in my blogs. It is interesting to note, that this opinion, regarding the presence of the signs of the foreign interference in the elections prior to 2016, (although not necessarily with the same range of agreed upon details and analysis, and independently arrived at), coincides completely with the one of Mike Pompeo who surely is very well informed on this subject. CIA Director Mike Pompeo: ‘Of course’ Russia interfered in the 2016 election, ‘and the one before that… I am confident that the Russians meddled in this election, as is the entire intelligence community,” Pompeo said, appearing agitated at the skepticism towards his previous answer. “I hope I didn’t stop at 2008 [for when he says Russian began interfering in U.S. elections]. You can go back to the 70s. My point was simply this: This threat is real. The U.S. government, including the Central Intelligence Agency, has to figure out a way to fight back against it and defeat it. And we’re intent upon doing that.” 

There must be a much broader group of people who share more or less the same impressions and the same opinion: the foreign interference in the US elections is a long standing phenomenon, and especially malignant from 1950-s, on a post-WW2 wave. 

What we need now, is not just the impressions and opinions, but more or less definitive studies, including the high-quality statistical ones, on this very important and forward looking subject, and also, of course, the strategic thinking and the strategic planning. 

Michael Novakhov

9.20.17 – M.N.:

These issues, described above, might not be under the direct purview of Mr. Mueller’s Investigation. Clearly, they are enormously important, and we also have to consider our common, human, and understandable reluctance to look into this moral and the political abyss.

However, we have to do this: to investigate these hypothetical connections with the utmost thoroughness and depth, the wellbeing of this nation depends on it. I think, in my, as always, very humble and the non-specialist opinion, that the DOJ and the FBI have to either establish a separate investigation into these matters or to broaden the scope and the mandate of Mr. Mueller’s investigation.

 This article below, which just came to light, about the very unusual FBI’s severe underreporting of their informants’ “Otherwise Illegal Activity” in the election year of 2016, might or might not have something to do with this. I think, that most likely it does. 

The whole issue of the FBI recordkeeping, statistical and other reports, and other aspects of the paperwork comes into focus: they simply do not always and necessarily keep the records: it is so much easier and so convenient for them: no accountability, no outsider will be able to learn about their crimes. 

This has to end.

Anatomy of a Russian attack: From robocalls to hoaxes, a look at tactics used

1 Share

About this series: The U.S. intelligence community has concluded an attempt to interfere in the 2016 presidential election was ordered by Russian President Vladimir Putin. A WTOP investigation that began in November 2016 examined how the attack happened, when it started, who was involved and what’s next. Dozens of interviews with current and former U.S. intelligence officials, members of Congress, cyber security and intelligence experts, foreign government officials, Russian nationals and American victims were conducted. Here is what WTOP learned.

WASHINGTON — In the early hours of Feb. 13, 2017, just after returning home from a trip to Africa earlier in the month, David Pollock woke up to the incessant ringing of his mobile phone.

He answered it. On the other end was someone speaking in Russian, who abruptly hung up.

“It started probably about 7 a.m. and continued many hours after that. I was getting robocalls from Russia in Russian,” he said.

Some of the relentless callers “left messages. Sometimes, they hung up, and sometimes, there was just noise after I answered,” said Pollock, the Kaufman fellow at The Washington Institute. He said that for nearly an entire working day, “the calls were coming in so fast; I couldn’t block them or delete them until many hours went by.”

Pollock believes he was targeted after publicly confronting a Russian academic, who denigrated the U.S. military and the U.S. government during a plenary session at a security conference in Morocco a few days before.

But as annoying as it was, what happened to Pollock was tame compared to the scene that unfolded in St. Mary Parish, Louisiana, on the morning of Sept. 11, 2014.

‘A certain mission’

“We started getting phone calls in regards to a message titled ‘toxic fumes, hazard warning,’” said Duval Arthur, director of the office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness.

He told WTOP that citizens received a text message alert about 8 a.m. about an explosion at a manufacturing plant. The alert read “‘take shelter, check local media,’” according to Arthur; the dispatch was sent from Columbia Chemical Company and listed its website as <a href=”http://columbiachemical.com” rel=”nofollow”>columbiachemical.com</a>.

Within two hours, social media users from the Gulf of Mexico to the Great Lakes were inundated with posts about the incident.

Twitter and other social media platforms were jammed with images of the explosion and a screenshot of a CNN homepage. Even a YouTube video had been posted showing someone watching a TV broadcast in which ISIS had allegedly claimed responsibility for an attack on the plant.

But not a word of it was true. It was all an elaborately staged hoax.

The organization mentioned in the alert, Columbia Chemical Company, does not exist.

There is a company in the area called Columbian Chemical, owned by Birla.

Arthur told WTOP he called the company, and they said the following in a news release:

“We have been informed by the community that a text message has been received by several individuals indicating a release of toxic gas from the Birla Carbon’s Columbian Chemicals Plant near Centerville, Louisiana. The content as stated by the text message is not true. There has been no release of such toxic gas, explosion or any other incident in our facility. We are not aware of the origin of this text message.”

When WTOP asked who was responsible, Arthur said, “I was told it was the Russians, but I have no information on that — none whatsoever.”

WTOP contacted the Louisiana division of the FBI and asked about the investigation. A spokesman declined to comment on the disposition and nature of the inquiry.

Arthur is uncertain about who was behind the incident, but current and former U.S. intelligence sources are clear that it and other incidents like it are the work of a Russian government-funded network.

Both Pollock and St. Mary Parish, Louisiana, were likely victims of a troll house operation.

“These folks have a certain mission. They go 24 hours a day in 12-hour shifts. In those shifts, they are given a certain number of posts that they have to fulfill,” said former Congressman Michael J. Rogers, R-Mich.

Rogers, who chaired the House Intelligence Committee from 2011-2015, told WTOP hundreds of workers at the troll houses are assigned to target websites, social media accounts and online platforms, “which have some impact on people’s opinion on either a person or some idea or a political candidate,” that is important to the Russian government.

He said each troll, “based on the information I saw, is assigned about 135 online posts (or targets).”

In each post, according to Rogers, the troll is required to include a minimum number of characters — “something like 200,” said Rogers.

Whether it’s robocalling people perceived as hostile to the Russian government or launching intricately scripted hoaxes, it’s all believed to be a part of the Russian military’s new information warfare division — designed specifically to fight the U.S. and the West.

“They took all of their cyber-actors and combined them in this information warfare center. They talked openly about propaganda being a part of what they do. They said they were going to be smart and effective in everything they do to protect the Russian federation,” Rogers said.

Russia’s influence operations

Moscow’s new hybrid warfare machine was on full display last year.

“What we have seen in the 2016 election was an unprecedented attempt by Russia to manipulate our most basic democratic process: our electoral process and the jewel of the crown, the presidential process,” Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in an exclusive interview with WTOP.

The operation was based on an old idea.

“Russia, a long time back in time inside the Soviet Union, was an agent of misinformation. When it was a communist dictatorship, it used propaganda to contain its own people,” Warner said.

Many of the tactics that Russia deployed in 2016 against the U.S., he said, “They’ve been using for the last decade in places like Poland, Hungary, Romania and, of course, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.”

A U.S. intelligence official told WTOP, “Russia relies on tools it uses in its influence campaigns, such as media messaging and funding of parties, to muddy the waters about Russian activities and bolster its preferred candidates.”

Russia “probably is also increasingly using cyber-enabled disclosures to undermine the credibility of Western institutions,” said the official, looking at how Moscow skillfully hacked the Democratic National Committee and John Podesta, former chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

After both entities were hacked, sources told WTOP, the information was then funneled to organizations such as WikiLeaks and DCleaks.

Warner said, “Russia started by hacking into private individual accounts of both political parties, but decided to only release information that was harmful to the Democratic candidate — Clinton.”

Somewhere mid-spring to summer of 2016, according to Warner, “Moscow changed from saying they just wanted to sow chaos to deciding they’d rather see Trump over Clinton.”

There were two phases of the operation, he said.

The first was the selective hacking of information and then letting that information be released at critical times. The second part, which Warner said “was even more sophisticated, was using modern technology and the internet, and they would pay people to create fake social media accounts and create botnets.”

He said they would use those accounts and bots to flood the internet with fake news. And, according to Warner, they were so skilled at it that they could even target specific areas.

“Data scientists have shown that in certain areas, for example in Wisconsin, Michigan or Pennsylvania, during the last 10 days of the campaign, Twitter or Facebook users wouldn’t find stories about Clinton vs. Trump,” Warner said.

Instead, he said, they would encounter fake stories “about Hillary Clinton being sick or stealing money from the State Department.”

The reason, he said, was because the overwhelming number of bots and fake social media accounts — a part of Russia’s information warfare operation — could determine what the top trending stories would be on social media platforms.

It’s been nearly a year since the US intelligence community publicly announced its determination that the Russian government took covert actions to sway the 2016 US election. We now know that Russia did so in part by buying Facebook ads and weaponizing bots, trolls, and other social media tools created by US tech giants. But there is still much that eludes the public about these attacks, as New York Times media columnist Jim Rutenberg pointed out on Monday:

We don’t know what these Facebook ads looked like, we don’t know who they were targeting, and we don’t know how many millions of Americans may have been exposed to them.

As the Washington Post reported, congressional investigators “have grown increasingly concerned that Facebook is withholding key information that could illuminate the shape and extent of a Russian propaganda campaign.”

We do know an elaborate plan for influencing the election reportedly was drawn up in 2016 by the Russian Institute for Strategic Studies, a think tank controlled by the Kremlin, according to reporting by Reuters. One document “recommended the Kremlin launch a propaganda campaign on social media and Russian state-backed global news outlets to encourage U.S. voters to elect a president who would take a softer line toward Russia than the administration of then-President Barack Obama,” according to seven US officials cited.

Another document that came from that Russian think tank last October, according to Reuters, “warned that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was likely to win the election. For that reason, it argued, it was better for Russia to end its pro-Trump propaganda and instead intensify its messaging about voter fraud to undermine the U.S. electoral system’s legitimacy and damage Clinton’s reputation in an effort to undermine her presidency.”

There are at least four ways the Russians followed that blueprint for a broad attack that only now is beginning to come into greater focus for the American public.

As reported earlier this month in The New York Times, Facebook has disclosed that “a shadowy Russian company linked to the Kremlin” bought some 3,000 ads, using 470 fake accounts, at a cost of more than $100,000. Facebook said it has shut down the fake accounts and acknowledged that these were “divisive ads on hot-button [social] issues” such as race, gay rights, gun control and immigration, according to a post on Facebook by Alex Stamos, the company’s chief security officer. The ads ran from June 2015 until May 2017 and echoed themes favorable to presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Throughout the election season, false and misleading articles were posted on Russian media sites and amplified through social media in an effort that former FBI agent Clint Watts has described as an updated form of the classic Soviet “active measures” technique to plant false information and undermine democracy. As Mother Jones has previously reported, Trump and his associates at times during the campaign picked up these false news stories and quoted them.

As Watts described to congressional investigators, the Kremlin used armies of Twitter bots to spread fake news using sock-puppet accounts that appeared to be individuals such as swing-voter Republicans in the heartland. The idea, Watts said, was for Americans to “see somebody and they look exactly like you, even down to the pictures.”

“Russia’s increasingly sophisticated propaganda machinery,” as The Washington Post reported, “including thousands of botnets, teams of paid human ‘trolls,’ and networks of websites and social-media accounts — echoed and amplified right-wing sites across the Internet as they portrayed Clinton as a criminal hiding potentially fatal health problems and preparing to hand control of the nation to a shadowy cabal of global financiers. The effort also sought to heighten the appearance of international tensions and promote fear of looming hostilities with nuclear-armed Russia.”

Senate intelligence committee leaders have received reports, according to the Huffington Post, that Russia hired at least 1,000 trolls to spread fake news stories to hurt Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton during the presidential election. According to Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), these efforts apparently focused on “swing states in an attempt to influence votes there—Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania—where people were reading during the waning days of the election that ‘Clinton is sick,’ or ‘Clinton is taking money from whoever for some source’…fake news.’”

The margin of victory for Trump in all three states combined was fewer than 80,000 votes.

Watts and other national security experts created the Hamilton 68 dashboard this summer to track Russia-linked influence networks that continue to operate on Twitter.

The Daily Beast has reported “that Russian operatives hiding behind false identities used Facebook’s event-management tool to remotely organize and promote political protests in the U.S., including an August 2016 anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim rally in Idaho.” A Facebook spokesperson confirmed to The Daily Beast recently that several events were shut down and had been promoted with paid ads.

The Daily Beast added that these “Facebook events—one of which echoed Islamophobic conspiracy theories pushed by pro-Trump media outlets—are the first indication that the Kremlin’s attempts to shape America’s political discourse moved beyond fake news and led unwitting Americans into specific real-life action.”

While Facebook hasn’t publicized many specifics about the Russian political ad efforts, The Wall Street Journal reports that special counsel Robert Mueller has copies of the ads, information about the accounts that purchased them, as well as about the targeting criteria they used.

Meanwhile, the Trump campaign was known for its extensive use of Facebook in 2016—both for its use of the social network’s marketing tools and for its partnership with Cambridge Analytica, a firm controlled by major Trump donor Robert Mercer that specializes in “psychological” data mining from Facebook.

It remains unclear whether the Trump campaign efforts had any connection with the Russian efforts. But in reviewing how social media figured into the 2016 campaign in general, a recent piece in the New York Review of Books argued persuasively that, “Donald Trump is our first Facebook president.”

Confirmed: Paul Manafort caught on wiretap colluding with Russia on Donald Trump’s behalf during election 

1 Share

Monday was an almost incalculably bad day for Paul Manafort, who was confirmed to have been under secret wiretap before and after the election, and is about to be indicted. But Tuesday has turned out to be an arguably even worse day for Manafort, based on what’s subsequently been revealed about that wiretap. It’s also just about the worst news possible for Donald Trump.

The latest revelation comes by way of CBS News, which is now confirming that Paul Manafort discussed the Donald Trump campaign with the Russians during the election (link). It’s still not being reported what Manafort and Russia specifically said to each other. But this amounts to collusion one way or the other. As has been pointed out by various legal experts, “collusion” is not a legal term; it simply means two parties are working together for nefarious purposes. But Special Counsel Robert Mueller already has the tapes of the Manafort-Russia conversations, so he knows precisely what was said. He also presumably knows what Manafort subsequently said to Trump about those conversations.

That’s where the problem comes in for Donald Trump. His own campaign chairman has now been caught colluding with the Russians about the election, on behalf of the campaign, during the election. On some level the burden will now fall on Trump to demonstrate that he somehow didn’t know his own campaign chair was taking these actions. If it turns out Trump did know, he’s on the hook legally for whatever it is that Manafort and Russia were specifically plotting.

There is also the matter of the court of public opinion. If Donald Trump can’t convince the general public that he didn’t know Paul Manafort was colluding with the Russians on behalf of the campaign, he’ll be presumed guilty by the American people. In the end, the damage to his approval rating may determine the swiftness of his ouster.

The post Confirmed: Paul Manafort caught on wiretap colluding with Russia on Donald Trump’s behalf during election appeared first on Palmer Report.

Donald Trump | The Guardian: Is Trump about to repeat George W Bush’s worst mistake? | Michael Fuchs

In 2002, Bush used his UN speech to argue for action against Iraq. Lets hope Trumps first UN speech isnt the opening salvo in a preventable war with Iran

In 2003, the United States initiated perhaps the greatest strategic disaster in US history by diverting attention from a necessary war in Afghanistan to an unnecessary war in Iraq. The Iraq war resulted in hundreds of thousands dead and wounded, untold economic catastrophe, states in the Middle East in complete ruin, and the rise of Isis all while the effort to go after terrorists in Afghanistan languished.

President Donald Trumps first speech before the United Nations General Assembly this week made clear that Trump wants to take America down a similar path by diverting much-needed attention from North Korea to starting an unnecessary conflict with Iran.

Confirmed: Paul Manafort caught on wiretap colluding with Russia on Donald Trumps behalf during election

Monday was an almost incalculably bad day for Paul Manafort, who was confirmed to have been under secret wiretap before and after the election, and is about to be indicted. But Tuesday has turned out to be an arguably even worse day for Manafort, based on what’s subsequently been revealed about that wiretap. It’s also just about the worst news possible for Donald Trump.

The latest revelation comes by way of CBS News, which is now confirming that Paul Manafort discussed the Donald Trump campaign with the Russians during the election (link). It’s still not being reported what Manafort and Russia specifically said to each other. But this amounts to collusion one way or the other. As has been pointed out by various legal experts, “collusion” is not a legal term; it simply means two parties are working together for nefarious purposes. But Special Counsel Robert Mueller already has the tapes of the Manafort-Russia conversations, so he knows precisely what was said. He also presumably knows what Manafort subsequently said to Trump about those conversations.

That’s where the problem comes in for Donald Trump. His own campaign chairman has now been caught colluding with the Russians about the election, on behalf of the campaign, during the election. On some level the burden will now fall on Trump to demonstrate that he somehow didn’t know his own campaign chair was taking these actions. If it turns out Trump did know, he’s on the hook legally for whatever it is that Manafort and Russia were specifically plotting.

There is also the matter of the court of public opinion. If Donald Trump can’t convince the general public that he didn’t know Paul Manafort was colluding with the Russians on behalf of the campaign, he’ll be presumed guilty by the American people. In the end, the damage to his approval rating may determine the swiftness of his ouster.

Trump attorney Michael Cohen has officially pissed off the Senate, and now theyre coming for him

As Donald Trump’s Russia scandal has gradually enveloped his staff, his associates, and even his family, one of the key questions has been who will flip on him in exchange for leniency, who will purposely decide to spitefully go down in flames, and who will dumbly get tripped up and be left with no choice but to flip. Based on what we just witnessed, it appears longtime Trump attorney Michael Cohen is now facing Choice B or Choice C.

Cohen agreed to voluntarily testify about his role in the Trump-Russia scandal for the Senate Intelligence Committee, with the stipulation that it be in private. The Senate agreed, because it was easier than dragging him through the subpoena process, but on the condition that Cohen not speak publicly about his testimony. The trouble: just before Cohen’s scheduled testimony on Tuesday morning, after he was already in the building, he released a last minute statement to the media. In return, the Senate dropped the hammer on him.

The Senate Intel Committee decided to immediately send Cohen home without testifying, and announced that it will now only allow him to testify in public (link). It also announced that it’s subpoenaing him to force him to come back and testify in public (link). This isn’t merely an attempt at punishing Cohen by making him dodge questions on live national television. It’s all about who else will be watching that testimony.

Some Trump-Russia figures have only agreed to testify before Congress privately, because they don’t want Special Counsel Robert Mueller having access to it. He’ll subpoena them to come in and answer his own questions when he’s ready to. But in the mean time, because Michael Cohen just screwed up and gave the Senate an opening to force him to testify publicly, it means Mueller will be watching that day. If Cohen screws up and gives anything away, it’ll put Mueller that much further ahead in the game.

Reports of feuding between Robert Mueller and Congress are greatly exaggerated

At least once a week, a major media outlet pushes the same old narrative: Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the various congressional committees are feuding about their respective roles in investigating the Trump-Russia scandal, they’re getting in each other’s way, and some big bad scary unspecified thing could be the result. But no matter how many times this narrative gets recycled, there’s still no evidence to back it up. So why do we keep hearing this?

If it were true that Mueller and Congress were stepping on each other’s feet, it would be an important story. And if you look at the available evidence in the wrong context, you might come away with the impression that they’re feuding. As Congress has asked the various Trump-Russia figures to testify, some of them have agreed under the stipulation that their testimony be in private, because they don’t want Mueller to see it. That sounds like a bad thing, until you look at what’s really going on, and you see a different story.

Mueller will bring these folks to come in and answer his questions when he’s ready for them. He’ll have a judge sign off on a subpoena compelling that testimony, meaning they won’t get a choice. So Mueller will have his way with these witnesses and suspects. In the meantime, there’s no harm to Congress bringing them in for testimony that Mueller won’t have access to. It’s better for that to happen, then for them to clam up and not testify before Congress at all. In addition, there are some tangential benefits in this process for Mueller.

We’ve already seen Mueller have the FBI raid Paul Manafort’s house just hours after his congressional testimony. Mueller must have found some way to get word of what Manafort said, because it was enough to inform him to make an immediate move. Then there’s the case of Michael Cohen, who violated his testimony agreement with Senate by blabbing to the media. As a result the Senate is now moving to compel him to testify publicly, meaning Mueller will get to watch it from home.

So why do so many news outlets keep pushing the narrative that Robert Mueller and Congress are feuding or sabotaging each other? The cynical answer would be that it makes for a juicy story and a great ratings opportunity. In all fairness, it would be an important story if it were true. There just isn’t any evidence that it’s true.

The real reason Rod Rosenstein is refusing to recuse himself in the Trump-Russia investigation

Last night the news broke that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has been interviewed as a witness in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s obstruction investigation into Donald Trump. That led to immediate questions about why Rosenstein is still refusing to recuse himself from the investigation. Under almost any other circumstances, he certainly would step aside. But these aren’t normal circumstances.

Rosenstein only came to oversee the Trump-Russia investigation after his boss, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, got caught lying about his own role in the scandal and had to recuse himself. Trump then went on to fire FBI Director James Comey in an attempt at sabotaging the investigation. Rosenstein was a witness to that firing, creating a potential conflict. But there are two reasons why Rosenstein isn’t recusing himself. One is technical, and the other is pragmatic.

The minute Rod Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller as Special Counsel, authority over the investigation was transferred from Rosenstein to Mueller. At this point Rosenstein only has the power to fire or not fire Mueller and nothing more. The only valid reason to fire Mueller would be some sort of criminal conduct on his part, such as conducting the investigation in an illegal manner, or going out and robbing banks in his spare time. Because none of that’s happening, there’s no question about whether Mueller needs to be fired. Therefore, there’s no actual conflict of interest when it comes to Rosenstein having firing authority over Mueller. But there’s a much more important reason why Mueller wouldn’t want Rosenstein to recuse himself.

If Rod Rosenstein were to recuse himself from the Trump-Russia investigation, someone named Rachel Brand would inherit the authority to fire or not fire Robert Mueller. Little is known about what she would do in that situation, but she was hand picked by Trump, so there’s reason to fear the worst. So no matter how convoluted this might become, as long as Rosenstein refuses to recuse himself, Mueller remains on the job and that’s the part that matters.

Donald Trump’s bodyguard Keith Schiller resigns just as Donald Trump Jr gives up Secret Service protection

1 Share

Three weeks ago, Donald Trump’s longtime bodyguard Keith Schiller began informing people that he was planning to leave his White House job (link). As of Tuesday night, he has in fact officially left the job (link). This comes at nearly the exact time as Donald Trump Jr has given up his own Secret Service protection. So what’s really going on here? It appears all three men are trying to hide something.

We’ll see whether or not Schiller does indeed become Donald Trump Jr’s personal bodyguard, as so many are now presuming. But the mere fact that Schiller has left the White House, and the timing of his departure in particular, are a big deal. Donald Trump sent Schiller to hand deliver a firing letter to FBI Director James Comey. It was a bizarre and suspicious move, considering that Schiller was the wrong person for such a task, and Trump knew Comey was on the west coast at the time anyway; he deliberately sent Schiller to an empty office.

That makes Schiller, at the least, a witness in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Donald Trump’s attempt at obstructing justice when he fired Comey. Schiller revealed his departure from the White House at nearly the same time Mueller began zeroing in on that firing. Quitting his job doesn’t get him off the hook – but it does prevent him from being a witness or participant in any further attempts by Trump at obstructing justice.

Meanwhile, it’s clear that Donald Trump Jr is ditching his Secret Service protection because he knows the agents will have to testify about any illegal activity (including conspiracy to obstruct of justice) that they see him engaging in. Again, this doesn’t erase whatever the agents have already witnessed. But as we’ve seen, these aren’t the brightest people. For instance Trump Jr blocked Palmer Report on Twitter after we published a negative news article about him this summer, and he seemed to think doing so made our article go away.

Based on the timing, it’s fair to assume that Keith Schiller is leaving the White House due to the investigation into the Comey firing, and it’s fair to assume that Donald Trump Jr is ditching his Secret Service protection due to the investigation into his Russia meeting and its coverup. Whether Schiller ends up guarding Trump Jr going forward or not, these men are all merely trying to avoid the inevitable.
