Ex-US Attorney: Trump is ‘scared to death’ as Mueller ‘squeezes’ his inner circle like toothpaste

Published

on

Former United States Attorney Michael Moore went on CNN Friday to break down the plea deal struck between former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and special counsel Robert Mueller — and he predicted bad things to come for the White House.

Moore said that the pattern the Mueller is following — that is, starting with lower level Trump campaign officials like George Papadopoulos and working up to bigger fish such as Flynn — is a by-the-book method for conducting these kinds of investigations.

“This is classic federal prosecutor style, and that’s what we would expect from Bob Mueller, and I think that’s what’s got the White House probably scared to death,” he said. “This is not unlike a tube of toothpaste — you squeeze it at the bottom, and the more you squeeze the more evidence comes out at one end. That’s what’s happening here as we continue to see Bob Mueller squeezing people in Trump’s inner circle.”

Moore then went on to connect Flynn’s admission to lying to FBI investigators to Trump’s decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey, and said that Flynn’s guilty plea lends new weight to the investigation over whether Trump obstructed justice.

“That’s not fake anymore, it’s a real investigation,” he said.

‘It’s the holy grail’: Cigarette-burned Kurt Cobain ‘Unplugged’ cardigan heading to auction

Published

on

A quarter century after grunge's enigmatic rhapsodist took his own life, Kurt Cobain's iconic cigarette-singed cardigan worn during Nirvana's 1993 "Unplugged" performance is up for sale.

The tattered, drab olive green button-up sweater with dark stains and a burn hole could go for at least $200,000 to $300,000, according to pre-bidding estimates from Julien's Auctions, which says rock and roll memorabilia has become a major investor's market.

The thrifted cardigan is the toast of this fall's "Icons & Idols: Rock 'N' Roll" auction organized by the house, which will also sell off the late Nirvana frontman's left-handed teal Fender Mustang guitar played during the "In Utero" tour.

‘Pence would be president by noon’: Morning Joe claims GOPers would dump Trump in a minute in a secret impeachment vote

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough believes the Senate would convict President Donald Trump by an overwhelming margin today if the vote were held in secret.

Former Sen. Jeff Flake said late last month that "at least 35" Republicans would vote to impeach Trump if the vote were secret, but the "Morning Joe" host and analyst Mike Barnicle agreed that number is much higher as public support grows for removing the president.

"I find it very interesting, very interesting that senators are being a little more careful in not attacking Mitt Romney," Scarborough said, referring to the Utah Republican who's been increasingly critical of the president. "Senators aren't rushing to Donald Trump's side. They don't know, for the first time, how this is going to play out. They're not so sure, for the first time, that Donald Trump can shoot a man on Fifth Avenue and get away with it."

On Neil Young’s new ‘Colorado’ album, amped up rage — and hope

Published

on

At 73 years old, Neil Young could be reminiscing about his legendary past, but the classic rocker instead has his sights set squarely on the planet's future with his latest album "Colorado."

The album out Friday sees Young, a long-time crusader for the environment, reunite with the loud, raggedy band Crazy Horse, which has recorded and toured on and off with the superstar for half a century.

The prolific Canadian-born artist gathered the latest iteration of Crazy Horse high in the Colorado mountains, where they shredded in between hits of oxygen to avoid altitude sickness.
