Published

on

Keith Olbermann took deep dive a charges from just the last week that could be included in Articles of Impeachment or criminal prosecution after he leaves office.

“Trump could theoretically wind up being accused of 17 separate counts of six separate crimes…in just the last week,” Olbermann explained.

The list of alleged crimes Olbermann cited included blackmail, witness intimidation, destruction of government property, obstruction of justice, conspiracy, intimidating a whistleblower and threats against private citizens.

“Donald Trump has eliminated his own benefit of the confusion,” Olberman explained. “The Trump-Russia coverup case is now about threatening people and firing people and pressuring people to keep them from investigating you and your colleagues.”

“The smoke doesn’t matter anymore,” Olbermann concluded. “Who needs Russian smoke when the White House is on fire.”

Oil prices surged more than 10 percent Monday after attacks on two Saudi Arabian plants that slashed output in the world's top producer by half, with Donald Trump blaming Iran and raising the possibility of a military strike on the country.

West Texas Intermediate jumped 10.68 percent to $60.71 and Brent climbed 11.77 percent to $67.31 in early Asia trading following the blasts at facilities run by state-owned giant Aramco.

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski mocked President Donald Trump's fixation on singer Elton John.

The rock legend reportedly rejected his longtime fan's invitation to perform at his January 2017 inauguration, and Trump has bitterly fixated on breaking John's attendance records at arenas where he holds campaign rallies.

"The saddest part of this story was when Donald Trump asked his staff members had anybody been writing about the Elton John attendance records that he supposedly broke," Scarborough said. "They said no, and he was angry and upset for days about that, also claiming that it was one more example of how, in the immortal words of Rodney Dangerfield, he don't get no respect."

‘RIP GOP’: Polling expert predicts devastating Trump 2020 electoral wipeout

Published

Democratic pollster and strategist Stanley Greenberg went on CNN Monday to explain why he believes President Donald Trump and the Republican Party are headed toward a historic and humiliating defeat in the 2020 elections.

In an interview with CNN's John Berman, Greenberg discussed his new book called "RIP GOP" in which he makes a case that Trump's presidency has shifted public opinion in Democrats' favor while repelling moderate voters from the Republican Party.

"I think what happened going into 2016 is Donald Trump took over the Tea Party base of the party, allied it with evangelicals and took the party to a very extreme end," he said. "I believe... Donald Trump's election will speed the defeat of the Republican Party because of its dominance by the Tea Party and evangelicals, which won't consider compromise, which won't consider a multicultural America in a part of our future. And I also thought it would speed up the resistance and also people's consciousness of what they believe and their values, and all of that has happened."
