‘This is insanity!’: CNN’s Toobin accuses GOPers pushing anti-FBI memo of ‘getting their information from tin foil hats’

Published

CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin on Wednesday went all-in against congressional Republicans after FBI Director Christopher Wray publicly criticized a push to release the controversial anti-FBI memo written by staff members for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA).

“Republicans in Congress are getting most of their information from tin foil hats,” Tobin explained. “This is political partisanship dressed up as attacks on the FBI. Let’s just pause for a second and ask ourselves: What are the chances that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is a nest of liberal activists?”

“Has anyone here been in the United States before?” Toobin continued. “This is the FBI. This is not how the FBI has ever worked! It has been a conservative law enforcement institution. That’s what the FBI was, that’s what the FBI is—this is insanity.”

Yale psychiatrist: Trump using racism as a coping mechanism as his mental state rapidly deteriorates

Published

on

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump continued to attack the young congresswomen of color nicknamed "The Squad," after he was criticized for saying the women should go back to their own countries, even though all four are U.S. citizens. Now, he's doubling down.

On Twitter Wednesday he called the women "left-wing cranks." He added that they were free to leave if they don't like America.

Raw Story spoke with Dr. Bandy X. Lee about the President's racist tirades against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-ILL).

Lee is a forensic psychiatrist and an expert on violence at Yale School of Medicine. She helped launch a public health approach to global violence prevention as a consultant to the World Health Organization and other United Nations bodies since 2002. She is author of the textbook, “Violence: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Causes, Consequences, and Cures,” president of the World Mental Health Coalition, and editor of the New York Times bestseller, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 37 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President.”

This word is the single biggest tipoff that Trump is lying

Published

on

President Donald Trump exhibits a verbal tic that gives away some of his biggest whoppers.

The president tells demonstrable lies on a daily basis, but it's a "flashing red light" that he's lying when he recounts someone calling him "sir," according to CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale.

"Trump has told false 'sir' stories on all manner of subjects: health care, the Middle East, the courts, unions and -- just last week -- both tariffs and social media," Dale wrote. "But no genre of Trump story is more reliably sir-heavy than his collection of suspiciously similar tales about macho men breaking into tears of gratitude in his presence."

Russia on Wednesday said it had opened an unprecedented criminal case accusing officials of negligence for allowing a gay couple to adopt two children.

The Investigative Committee, which probes serious cases, said that Moscow social workers were suspected of criminal negligence for allowing the two boys to live in the family since 2010.

This is the first such case ever launched, reported Interfax news agency.

"Nothing like this has happened before," said lawyer Maksim Olenichev of Vykhod (Coming Out) support group based in the northwestern city of Saint Petersburg.

He told AFP he was in talks with the family to represent them legally because "we think we need to defend this family from the actions of the state."
