REVEALED: Kremlin spokesperson asked in 2016 about hacked DNC emails deferred the question to Trump Jr.

Published

on

On Wednesday, a journalist on Twitter unearthed a year-old article about the Democratic National Committee hacks that features a Kremlin spokesperson referring questions about the hacks to Donald Trump, Jr. — a referral that, in hindsight, appears very telling.

“Fallout from the hack also reverberated at the Kremlin, where a spokesman declined to comment on the hack except to refer reporters to comments by Trump’s son, Don Jr., calling the allegations part of a pattern of ‘lie after lie,'” a Washington Post article from July 25, 2016 reads.

“‘Mr. Trump Jr. has already strongly responded’ to the Clinton campaign’s claims, the Russian spokesman said, according to the news agency Tass,” it continued.

“I tweeted this on July 26, 2016,” journalist Sarah Kendzior wrote of the excerpt above. “Found it odd that Kremlin spokesman referred inquiries about hacks to Donald Trump Jr. Now we know why!”

Kendzior’s unearthing came after a bombshell dinnertime article published in the Wall Street Journal that claims Russian officials were overheard discussing Trump’s run prior to his official filing in 2015.

It also came after CNN released a 2013 video of Trump Sr. having dinner with a number of Russian officials who allegedly worked to set up Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer said to have incriminating information about Hillary Clinton last summer.

Republicans in Congress are angry about Trump’s latest racist comments — but not because they’re racist

Published

on

There can be no denying that amid the firestorm from President Donald Trump tweeting that Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) should "go back where they came from," Republicans in Congress are upset.

However, as many of them make clear in conversation with reporters, the fact that these comments were racist is not the main reason they are angry at the president. Rather, they are frustrated that his comments are hogging the news cycle, which leaves them incapable of discussing their agenda — and of criticizing the agenda of the Democratic representatives he targeted.

George Conway declares ‘Trump is a racist president’ in brutal Washington Post column

Published

on

Prominent Republican attorney George Conway blasted President Donald Trump in an op-ed published by The Washington Post on Monday evening.

Conway explained how he avoided thinking of Trump as a racist, despite the president's actions.

"No, I thought, President Trump was boorish, dim-witted, inarticulate, incoherent, narcissistic and insensitive. He’s a pathetic bully but an equal-opportunity bully — in his uniquely crass and crude manner, he’ll attack anyone he thinks is critical of him. No matter how much I found him ultimately unfit, I gave still him the benefit of the doubt about being a racist. No matter how much I came to dislike him, I didn’t want to think that the president of the United States is a racial bigot," he explained.

‘He’s the one who hates our country’: Rep. Rashida Tlaib rips Trump’s ‘failed presidency’

Published

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) ripped President Donald Trump for his "failed presidency" during an interview on CNN following her press conference with the three other young women of color in Congress known as "The Squad."

"You’re a child of immigrants here to the United States," CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer noted. "I’m a child of immigrants here to the United States as well. And all of us can relate specifically to what’s going on, because I’m sure you’ve heard basically most of your life go back where you came from."

"As you point out, you are the first of two Muslim women to serve in the United States Congress. Why do you think President Trump specifically chose to paint the two of you as disloyal?" Blitzer asked.
