Nicolle Wallace: Trump has not read controversial Devin Nunes Memo — but he may have helped write it

Published

on

The controversial memo that House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) has been urging President Donald Trump to declassify may have been written by the White House, a panel on MSNBC’s “Deadline White House” with Nicolle Wallace explained Wednesday.

“If you just look at the public comment so far, which is that [Nunes] won’t answer the question and that the White House won’t unequivocally say, no…when you see hedges like that in public, it often means the answer privately is yes, they did work together,” Washington Post reporter Ashley Parker concluded. “But again to be clear, we don’t know that definitively yet.”

“Let me offer a theory. What if he helped create the memo?” Nicolle Wallace asked. “What if he knows he’s going to release it because he helped create it?”

“It’s certainly possible and certainly the history, Devin Nunes recused himself from the Russia investigation which was for doing this thing, collaborating with the White House to create a bogus charge back in a year ago now, right?” NBC News national-affairs analyst Jon Heilemann replied.

“So, if a precedent tells you anything, I have no basis, no factual basis to say that theory is true, but we have precedent for that theory being true because it’s happened before,” Heilemann concluded.

A new Axios report listed out any anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-poor policies.

“He campaigned saying that he would be a good friend to LGBT people,” James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project, told VOX. "Actions speak far louder than words. And what he's done has been a wreck."

Israel’s Netanyahu just christened a building named after Trump — that doesn’t even exist

Published

on

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spent his Father’s Day dedicating a new Trump Tower-type building that hasn't been built in a town that doesn't exist.

Standing in front of a large sign saying "Trump Heights," Netanyahu, who is being forced back into another election, announced the building before planning even began, Axios reported.

A great day on the Golan. PM Netanyahu and I had the honor to dedicate “Trump Heights” — first time Israel has dedicated a village in honor of a sitting president since Harry Truman (1949). Happy Birthday Mr. President!! @POTUS pic.twitter.com/fdYWzokFLK

This graphic explains why Speaker Pelosi is resistant to impeachment

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has told her caucus that they can do investigations into the president without impeachment. The difference, however, is that there are fewer legal benefits available to Congress in their oversight role than in impeachment.

Theoretically, it should enable Democrats to do the research they need, but the White House is taking the bold step to defy the oversight the Constitution outlines. The only option open to the Democrats has been to go to court with their case outlining how the White House is breaking the law. Thus far, they've won two lawsuits about their investigations, and they will likely gain more.
