Trump Presidency

LOL - watching Jeff Sessions go on FOX TV begging for Trump's endorsement was pathetic. LOLOLOL

Most people make an announcement video to announce their running - Sessions just did the equivalent of "u up?" to a booty call he hasn't talked to in months.

"Axios on HBO" last night aired a preview of "A Warning," by the senior administration official who penned a New York Times op-ed that infuriated President Trump and sparked an ultimately fruitless leak investigation.

  • Why it matters: Sources say the book points to multiple instances of misconduct and attempts to violate the law, and some of the allegations could be used a bread crumbs for impeachment investigators to follow — obstruction of Congress, abuse of power, offering pardons.
Two appetizers from the book, out Nov. 19:

1. "One time, a leader of a national security agency asked the president for support in convincing Congress to pass an upcoming defense bill":

"Don't worry about Congress," the president said. "Just do what you need to do."
The official explained that it wasn't like that ...
"No, no. It doesn't matter. you have my permission to do whatever you need to do, okay? Just forget about them."

2. "The president has proposed doing away with judges on more than one occasion":

Too many of his policies are getting stuck in legal limbo, he says.
"Can we just get rid of the judges? Let's get rid of the fucking judges," Trump fumed one morning. "There shouldn't be any at all, really."
He went a step further and asked his legal team to draft up a bill and send it to Congress to reduce the number of federal judges.
Staff ignored the outburst and the wacky request.

White House statement on "A Warning":

The coward who wrote this book didn’t put their name on it because it is nothing but lies. Real authors reach out to their subjects to get things fact checked — but this person is in hiding, making that very basic part of being a real writer impossible

Confronted with a mountain of damaging facts heading into tomorrow's opening of the public phase of impeachment, House Republicans plan to argue that "the President's state of mind" was exculpatory, according to a strategy memo obtained by Axios' Jonathan Swan and narrated by Zach Basu.

  • "To appropriately understand the events in question — and most importantly, assess the President's state of mind during his interaction with [Ukrainian] President Zelensky — context is necessary," says the 18-page staff memo, circulated to committee members last night.
  • "The evidence gathered does not establish an impeachable offense," the memo concludes.
Why it matters: By focusing their defense on intangibles like impeachability and President Trump's mindset, House Republicans don't depend on undercutting a narrative that has been bolstered by witness after witness.

  • Republican senators, who would vote on whether to remove President Trump if the House impeached him, are also thinking this way.
  • Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) told the WashPost 10 days ago: "To me, it all turns on intent, motive. ... Did the president have a culpable state of mind?"

With every step, it becomes more and more clear that the orange clown has a whole pile of illegal shit that he’s trying to hide. NOBODY pulls this, unless they’re guilty as fuck and grasping at straws.

Yeah but it's all politically motivated, bra. Most perfect taxes evar.
