Published

on

According to a Wall Street Journal report, President Donald Trump attempted to persuade the director of the National Security Administration to say that there was no collusion between the president’s campaign and Russia, and that he does not believe Russia interfered in his election.

According to sources familiar with the matter, there exists a memo written after a phone conversation between Trump and NSA Director Adm. Rogers where “the president questioned the veracity of the intelligence community’s judgment that Russia had interfered with the election and also tried to persuade Adm. Rogers to say there was no evidence of collusion between the campaign and Russian officials.”

On June 7, the day before former FBI Director James Comey testified before Congress about the events leading up to his firing by Trump, Adm. Rogers said he didn’t feel any pressure from the president “to push back against allegations of possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.”

The Journal‘s report also confirms the Washington Post and New York Times reports that Trump is now being investigated for potential obstruction of justice by Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller.

The Constitution has two mechanisms to remove President Donald Trump from office prior to his term ending on January 20, 2021: impeachment and the 25th Amendment.

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher noted that Trump could also choose to resign.

Maher waved around a $1 million check that he said he would give to Trump to quit.

He said he also knew 1,000 people who would do the same -- which would land Trump over $1 billion.

Maher said even poor people would pawn their wedding rings to add to the pot.

White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will likely stay on at the White House despite his public confession of a quid pro quo in the Ukraine scandal at the center of the impeachment inquiry, The New York Times reported Friday.

"In the chaotic aftermath, the president’s Republican allies are questioning Mr. Mulvaney’s savvy and intelligence even as the Trump campaign is defiantly turning one of his lines from the news conference into a T-shirt."
