Activists troll Trump by posting ‘Impeach Bannon’ posters across the country

Published

on

With questions being raised over who exactly is wielding power inside the White House, activists are calling for the ouster of Trump chief adviser Steve Bannon with “impeachment” signs popping up around the country and directed at the former Breitbart head.

Bannon, who stepped in and helped straighten out a faltering Trump campaign that eventually propelled businessman Donald Trump to the presidency, is considered by many to be a Svengali-type character, manipulating the newly-elected president.

According to The Hill, signs stating, “Impeach President Bannon,” followed by the timeline list: “Reagan Bush Clinton Bush Obama Bannon” have shown up in major cities across the country — just in time for President’s Day Weekend.

The signs have been spotted in New York City, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

According to organizers behind the guerilla campaign, “No one voted for Steve Bannon. Yet he is the de-facto 45th President of the United States.”

The organizers also stated that they hoped to get a response on Twitter from the easily-riled Trump stating, “Maybe we’ll encourage an angry tweet or two. Maybe even get Trump to say his two favorite words to Bannon, ‘You’re Fired.’ ”

On Thursday, during one of the final scheduled impeachment hearings this week, National Security Council official Fiona Hill demolished President Donald Trump's conspiracy theory that Ukraine, rather than Russia, meddled in the 2016 election, calling it a "fictional narrative" and noting that it originated with the Kremlin itself.

But in conversation with reporters, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) flatly disbelieved Hill's testimony, and insisted he still held onto the theory.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told me that he was not going to lose any GOP votes during impeachment.

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace on Thursday highlighted one of the key moments from the impeachment inquiry testimony from Dr. Fiona Hill.

"Often when women show anger, it’s not fully appreciated. It’s often, you know, pushed onto emotional issues perhaps, or deflected on other people," Hill testified.

Here's Fiona Hill on why she thinks Sondland misunderstood her anger — and how women's anger is often viewed, more generally: "It's not fully appreciated. It's often pushed off onto emotional issues." pic.twitter.com/AsMR3A9InI

Mulvaney lawyer denies Mick was ‘so heavily involved’ — despite his White House briefing room confession

Published

on

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney was referenced multiple times during Dr. Fiona Hill's testimony Thursday, but Mulvaney's lawyer said he doesn't understand why.

"We have no idea why Ms. Hill believes Mr. Mulvaney was so heavily involved, especially in light of Ambassador Sondland’s contrary testimony," said Fox News reporter Chad Pergram, quoting a statement from Robert Driscoll.

As former federal prosecutor Joyce Vance pointed out, Hill recalled during her testimony how angry she was about Sondland not briefing her. She said that after hearing his testimony Wednesday and learning he was briefing Mike Pompeo, John Bolton, Mulvaney and President Donald Trump. She then decided he was correct-they had separate missions and Sondland was on a domestic political errand.
