‘The White House is under siege’: Dan Rather calls out Congress for still not investigating Trump

Published

on

Journalist Dan Rather took to Facebook on Wednesday night to ask an important question about President Donald Trump’s administration, particularly CNN suggesting the FBI has new evidence of Trump’s associates communicating with Russian operatives to “possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton’s campaign.”

Noting that he never thought he would hear this question asked again “with such urgency and stakes,” Rather asked what many are asking: “What did the President know, and when did he know it?”

“It is impossible to overstate the seriousness of this allegation,” Rather said of CNN’s latest reporting. “Americans associated with Donald Trump illegally colluding with a foreign power.”

“Once again, all the caveats must hold,” he continued. “This isn’t proven. Allegations and suspicions are not an indictment. But with each turn of this story, the level of seriousness deepens.”

The bombshell report comes on the same day House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) went directly to the White House to disclose new information about the president’s team being surveilled between Election Day and his inauguration.

Rather commented on the matter, calling it an “unorthodox action … briefing President Trump on details of investigations.” He, like former Watergate investigative journalist Carl Bernstein, who spoke with CNN’s Anderson Cooper the same night, noted, “We are long past having any excuse not to launch an open bipartisan investigation and a special prosecutor.”

“I have seen a lot in my lifetime. But I have never seen anything like this. No one has,” Rather continued. “Who knows what tomorrow will bring? The vote on the health care bill is shaping up to be its own mess.”

“Should we really be rushing a bill on heath care with major changes hammered out for politics instead of policy?” he asked.

“The White House is under siege.”

An incident at a fast food drive-thru in New York on July 4 was captured on video, showing a family engaged in a confrontation with a restaurant manager who apparently wasn't wearing a mask, News12 reports.

Brandon Trotta says he took his kids to Dairy Queen when he saw several employees inside not wearing masks.

“I saw the person preparing our Blizzards not wearing a mask so I told the cashier that I'm not going to take those and I asked if they could remake them wearing a mask,” he told News 12.

Trump is cracking as his distraction superpowers falter amid the coronavirus pandemic

Published

on

Donald Trump is dumb — so dumb he literally suggested on live television that scientists should explore injecting household cleaners into people's lungs to cure the coronavirus. But due to what appears to be a serious and undiagnosed personality disorder — his niece Mary Trump, who is a clinical psychologist, suggests it's likely narcissism or sociopathy — Trump managed to stumble backwards into a strategy that works well with the 24-hour cable news ecosystem of national politics. Actually, "strategy" may be too strong a word, but it's inarguable that Trump's short attention span, impulsive nature and all-consuming corruption have meant a constant deluge of scandals and outrages, with each one knocking the last one out of the headlines.
