‘Dossier is bogus’: Trump goes off the rails in ridiculous new attack on ‘tainted’ FBI and ‘crooked Hillary’

Published

on

President Donald Trump continued his assault on his chief law enforcement agency on Monday by calling the FBI “tainted” because it has reportedly included a salacious dossier about the president in the investigation into Russia’s interference in the U.S. election.

In tweets over the Christmas holiday, Trump went after FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who recently announced his retirement.

“How can FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, the man in charge, along with leakin’ James Comey, of the Phony Hillary Clinton investigation (including her 33,000 illegally deleted emails) be given $700,000 for wife’s campaign by Clinton Puppets during investigation?” Trump falsely wrote. “FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is racing the clock to retire with full benefits. 90 days to go?!!!”

Even though experts warned that Trump was placing himself in danger of being accused of obstruction of justice, the president continued blasting the FBI in a unhinged Tuesday morning tweet directed at his favorite morning show Fox & Friends.

“WOW, @foxandfrlends “Dossier is bogus. Clinton Campaign, DNC funded Dossier. FBI CANNOT (after all of this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION. FBI TAINTED.” And they used this Crooked Hillary pile of garbage as the basis for going after the Trump Campaign!

Within minutes, Fox & Friends completed the circle by sharing the tweet with their audience.

Trump’s strategy isn’t working in Pennsylvania — a state the president can’t afford to lose: report

Published

on

Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Ohio are the four states that GOP strategists have been describing as President Donald Trump’s “Rust Belt firewall” — states that went to President Barack Obama in both 2008 and 2012 but favored Trump over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016. But that “firewall” has not been holding up for the president. Trump’s reelection campaign has "temporarily" suspended its advertising in Michigan, although it continues to advertise in the other three — all of which are clearly in play for former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee. And Philadelphia-based reporter Holly Otterbein, in an article published in Politico on August 2, stresses that so far, Trump’s attacks on Biden have not been resonating in Pennsylvania.

A 2020 ‘Blue Wave’ could badly cripple the Republican Party for years: Dem strategist

Published

on

In a column for New York magazine, Democratic strategist Ed Kilgore claimed that a "Blue Wave" election in 2020, like the one that switched the balance of power in the House to the Democrats, could have a far-reaching impact on congressional representation in elections to come.

In 2018, distaste for Donald Trump -- who was not on the ballot -- led voters to take out their wrath on Republican lawmakers, handing Democrats a net gain of 40 seats in the House and making Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) the House Speaker.

Published

on

Several professional epidemiologists have told The Atlantic that they've been shocked at the Trump administration's failed response to the novel coronavirus pandemic, which so far has killed 155,000 Americans in just five months.

In the story, journalist Ed Yong writes that he has spoken with more than 100 different infectious disease experts over the last several months and has "learned that almost everything that went wrong with America’s response to the pandemic was predictable and preventable."
