Russian lawyer at heart of Trump Jr. meeting may have been in the US illegally: report

Published

on

As if the Donald Trump, Jr.-Russian lawyer meeting story couldn’t get any weirder, a closer look at the visa record of Natalia Veselnitskaya, the lawyer in question, reveals that she may have been in the U.S. illegally.

According to an investigation by The Daily Beast, Veselnitskaya was initially denied a visa in 2015, but later granted “parole” entry at the end of that year to conduct business in Manhattan — a visa-less form of temporary entry that allows people to travel to the U.S. for 10 days. That entry would have ended in early 2016, and it was not renewed.

The State Department refuses to confirm or deny whether or not Veselnitskaya even applied for a visa prior to her 2016 meeting in New York with Trump Jr., much less whether that hypothetical visa was granted. As with press most requests for immigration records, the department declined comment for privacy purposes.

According to court transcripts acquired by the Beast, Veselnitskaya came to the states at least once after her meeting with Trump Jr. during a New York trial in early 2017.

"Before setting himself on fire on Ukraine yesterday, Mick Mulvaney came into the White House briefing room to break to the nation the fact the that the Trump Doral golf resort turns out to be -- in his estimation, organically, just sitting there -- the best possible place to have a G-7 Summit of world leaders," MSNBC's Brian Williams reported. "That was provision number one. There’s no better place that we can find. Number two was, the president will not profit from said G-7."

Bill Maher reveals plan to ‘bribe’ Trump with one billion dollars — for him to leave office

Published

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.

Trump can’t fire Mulvaney because nobody else wants to be his chief of staff: report

Published

on

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.

"But Mr. Mulvaney’s job has been anything but normal since the news conference on Thursday at which he seemingly undermined the Trump administration’s strategy for avoiding impeachment by acknowledging that Mr. Trump had sought a quid pro quo for providing Ukraine with American aid," the newspaper reported. "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."
