Donald Trump Jr. cites James O’Keefe and says his dad will only concede if results are ‘legit’

Published

on

Donald Trump Jr. said on Tuesday that he expected his father to concede if “legit and fair” results showed that the Republican nominee lost to Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

In an election day interview, MSNBC host Willie Geist reminded Donald Trump Jr. that his father had said for months that the election was “rigged.”

“Can you say here right now, if Hillary Clinton is a clear cut winner tonight in the Electoral College, your father will concede the election in a speech tonight?” the MSNBC host wondered.

“Of course,” Donald Trump Jr. insisted. “All we’ve wanted is a fair fight.”

Citing undercover videos by discredited conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe, the younger Trump suggested that Democrats may be using dirty tricks to steal the election from his father.

“You know, we just want a fair system,” he said. “Some stuff is going on. I don’t know if it’s enough to move elections. But we’ve seen states, you know, a few thousand votes can make a difference.”

Geist pressed: “If he loses, he will concede tonight?”

“If he loses and it’s legit and fair,” Donald Trump Jr. replied. “Without question, yes.”

If Trump really believed he was falsely accused ‘that is not a corrupt motive’ for removing the special counsel: Bill Barr

Published

on

Attorney General William Barr told Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) that if President Donald Trump really and truly thought he was being falsely accused of collaborating with Russia to steal the 2016 presidential election, that it was "not a corrupt motive" for firing Robert Mueller, a stunning statement from the nation's highest law enforcement officer.

"As a matter of law, I think the department's position would be that the president can direct the termination or the replacement of a special counsel," said Barr. "And as a matter of law, the obstruction statute does not reach that conduct."

Trump ‘shirking his duty to protect the country’ by ignoring Russia election threat: Ex-CIA agent

Published

on

Ex-CIA agent Evan McMullin told CNN on Wednesday that President Donald Trump was "shirking his duty to protect the country" by ignoring the fact that Russia plans to attack the 2020 election.

"He's shirking his responsibility to protect the country," McMullin said. "We are in a new era of information warfare."

"Countries can be defeated without a shot being fired," he went on. "We just learned from the Mueller report that the president was aware that we were undergoing, as a country, an information warfare attack during 2016. He sought to benefit from it."

"A lot of times we say 'look, the president's ego is wounded' when we talk about how the Russians attacked us, and may have helped him get elected," McMullin continued. "But I actually think that we are a little naive to buy into that narrative. I think that is a fig leaf for the president. How can we ignore that this president barely won the electoral college?"

White House made it clear they were ‘trying to hide’ evidence from Mueller: Omarosa

Published

on

Omarosa Manigault, former political aide to President Donald Trump, told MSNBC Wednesday that the while the White House never "directly" ordered her to destroy documents related to the Mueller report, they made it quite clear they were "trying to hide" evidence.

"He wants to run out the clock," Manigault said. "He thinks he can run down the clock and that people will stop being concerned about it. We should really not just focus about what he is telling people to do or say, but how he's asked people to destroy documents, to destroy e-mails, in my case two boxes of campaign-related materials that the White House still has in their possession, that they claim they don't have or don't know what happened to it."
