Trump urges Justice Department to ‘jail’ Comey, Clinton aide ‘and others’ after Fox report on emails

Published

on

President Donald Trump — who blabbed classified intelligence to top Russian officials — reacted to a Fox News report by calling to jail a Hillary Clinton aide for allegedly emailing sensitive government information.

The conservative network highlighted a story Monday morning from the right-wing Daily Caller website, which reported that Clinton aide Huma Abedin “forwarded sensitive State Department emails, including passwords to government systems, to her personal Yahoo email account.”

That email service provider was later hacked, and The Daily Caller reported that “guarantees” that Abedin and Clinton exposed sensitive government data to a “state-sponsored actor.”

The president urged the Justice Department, which he slurred as a “deep state” conspiracy against his presidency, to prosecute and jail Abedin.

Trump also suggested that former FBI director James Comey, whom he fired in May after failing to receive an assurance of loyalty, should also be prosecuted along with unspecified “others.”

The day after Trump fired Comey, he met in the Oval Office with the Russian foreign minister and U.S. ambassador at the center of the Justice Department’s investigation of the president’s campaign ties to the Kremlin.

Trump told the Russian officials about how ISIS terrorists were working to develop a laptop bomb that could pass undetected through airport security — which he boasted had come from Israeli intelligence officials.

The information was highly classified and had not been shared with close U.S. allies, and experts believe the disclosure put the Israeli spy operation at risk.

Last week, Trump gave a rambling interview to the New York Times, which asked whether he intended to reopen the Justice Department’s investigation of Clinton’s email activity as Secretary of State.

“I have absolute right to do what I want to do with the Justice Department,” Trump told the newspaper.

Published

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.

Trump says if GOP paid for Steele dossier ‘there’d be hell to pay’ — Republicans paid for half of it

Published

on

President Donald Trump tweeted out once again that he doesn't know the difference between a man hired to do opposition research and an entire country intruding on an election to sway the result.

In a Sunday Twitter rant, Trump proclaimed that if Republicans had done something like that, "there'd be hell to pay."

......If Republicans ever did that to the Democrats, there would be all hell to pay. It would be a scandal like no other!
