‘I want all 3 Americans interviewed by the FBI’: Former US Ambassador to Russia wants Trump Jr and co questioned now

Published

on

As the news cycle continues to be dominated by revelations of Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer to acquire dirt on Hillary Clinton, a former ambassador to Russia is, like so many others, questioning Trump Jr.’s motives.

When asked by MSNBC’s Katy Tur if the meeting failed to provide any lucrative intelligence (as Trump Jr. asserted), Michael McFaul, who served as American ambassador to Russia during President Barack Obama’s two terms, said there’s no way to know unless Trump Jr., Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner were all interviewed.

“I would love for somebody, maybe the FBI, to interview all the three Americans that were in that meeting — interview them right now and individually before they check their stories with each other so we know for a fact there was nothing there,” McFaul said.

McFaul said that at present, it still remains unclear what exactly came of that meeting, but the apparent motives behind it should matter.

“Maybe there wasn’t anything, but most certainly, the intent to receive dirt on Hillary Clinton is very apparent just reading those e-mails,” he said.

“We should sit down right away and interview, the Americans investigating this, the committees and the FBI, and figure out exactly what they learned in that meeting,” McFaul concluded.

Conservative suggests Trump’s racist rhetoric will incite worse than ‘send her back’ chants: ‘One shudders to wonder’

Published

on

In a column for the Washington Post, conservative Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Kathleen Parker said the refusal by Republican lawmakers and the evangelical community to condemn Donald Trump's racist rhetoric is paving the way for something far worse than mere "send her back" chants.

Under a headline that bluntly states, "Those who don’t condemn Trump’s racism are complicit in his bigotry," Parker gets right to her opinion of the president, writing, "Going out on a limb here: President Trump is a racist. And a sexist. And a xenophobic nationalist. Among other things. Not to name call or anything."

BUSTED: Leaked drug exec emails showed them encouraging opioid abuse to the point people would eat them ‘like Doritos’

Published

on

On Friday, the Washington Post published excerpts from a damning series of emails released in a landmark case in Cleveland around the irresponsibility of drug manufacturers and suppliers in contributing to the opioid crisis.

In one email exchange, Victor Borelli, an account manager for pharmaceuticals corporation Mallinckrodt, told KeySource Medical vice president Steve Cochrane that 1,200 bottles of 30mg Oxycodone tablets had been shipped, to which Cochrane replied, "Keep 'em comin'! Flyin' out of there. It's like people are addicted to these things or something. Oh, wait, people are..." and Borelli responded, "Just like Doritos keep eating. We'll make more."
