Trump just told the Pennsylvania AG that anti-Semitic threats may be false flag operations

Published

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro came away baffled after President Donald Trump told him in a meeting that some of the anti-Semitic threats to Jewish Community Centers might be false flag operations.

As reported by BuzzFeed’s Chris Geidner, the president told Shapiro that while he was horrified by reports of threats against Jewish institutions, he also said that “sometimes it’s the reverse,” where the threat was made simply “to make others look bad.”

Reporter Anna Orso notes that, during his chat with reporters, “Shapiro stopped short of saying Trump thinks his supporters are being framed for bomb threats,” although the Pennsylvania attorney general “seems to think that’s what he meant.”

As reported by Geidner, Shaprio said that Trump’s statement “didn’t make sense,” and said he hoped the president would clarify during his address before Congress on Tuesday evening.

Trump’s suggestion that anti-Semitic threats might be being made by people who want to make “others look bad” comes shortly after longtime adviser Anthony Scaramucci hinted that it was actually Democrats who may be responsible for the threats against the JCCs.

Recent weeks have seen an uptick in not only anti-Semitic threats against JCCs and synagogues, but also vandalism against Jewish cemeteries.

Brace yourself for months of lawlessness — ‘Election Night’ likely will not end until 2021

There’s nothing wrong with treating American politics like a sport as long as everyone involved in the competition is playing the same sport by the same rules. There’s nothing wrong as long as both sides agree the rules are legitimate, both commit to obeying them and both accept the consequences when they break them.

But there is a problem with treating American politics like a sport when one side is playing soccer and the other is playing football while neither can agree to the rules, because one side won’t commit to obeying them. There is something wrong when one side not only refuses to accept the consequences of rule-breaking but sets out to undermine the idea of rules altogether. In that case, treating politics like a sport, as the Washington press corps habitually does, isn’t helpful. It’s harmful. Even dangerous.

‘Deranged’ Trump pummeled for lying ‘practicing Catholic’ Joe Biden will ‘hurt God’

Published

on

President Donald Trump used a supposedly non-political event Thursday afternoon to attack his Democratic opponent with a lie, saying former Vice President Joe Biden will "hurt God" if elected.

In the strange pronouncement on the tarmac in Cleveland, Ohio, Trump falsely claimed that Biden will "take away your guns. Destroy your Second Amendment. No religion. No anything. Hurt the Bible. Hurt God. He’s against God. He’s against guns. He’s against energy."

Investigative reporter David Cay Johnston explains when you’ll see Trump get indicted

Published

Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter David Cay Johnston appeared Thursday on CNN, where he explained when he believed President Donald Trump would be indicted.

After receiving a subpoena from New York prosecutors last year, Deutsche Bank reportedly handed over detailed records about their dealings with Trump, according to the New York Times. The subpoena indicates that the investigation of Trump's family business is more expansive than previously thought.

"Prosecutors already have the basic tax information on Donald Trump. Your state tax return is virtually identical to your federal return, and the IRS shares tax information with the state," Johnston explained to CNN host Brianna Keilar.
