BOMBSHELL: Mueller just subpoenaed the Trump Organization — and he wants documents about Russia

Published

on

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s office has issued subpoenas to the Trump Organization seeking documents about its past dealings inside Russia.

The New York Times reports that Mueller’s team has asked the Trump Organization to deliver a series of documents on many topics, including some that are related to Russia.

According to the Times, the subpoena “is the first known time that the special counsel demanded documents directly related to President Trump’s businesses, bringing the investigation closer to the president.”

Although the Times’ report doesn’t have information about what Mueller is specifically looking for in his subpoena, it says that the request for the documents indicates that his office is broadening the scope of its inquiry to look at the president’s complex international business dealings.

The Trump Organization is an umbrella company that oversees Trump’s many businesses. Trump in the past has signaled that Mueller’s team would be crossing a “red line” if it looked into his past business dealings, although Mueller could justify investigating such dealings on the grounds that they may explain why Russian officials worked to help get Trump elected in 2016.

In 2008, for example, Donald Trump Jr. said that Russians “make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of” the Trump Organization’s assets, while also adding that “we see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”

Republicans love the Constitution — until it applies to them: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot unleashed on President Donald Trump's latest scandal he's calling Ukraine-gate. But when it comes to Republicans, he called them outright complicit.

In his Sunday column, Boot noted that a mob boss doesn't have to overtly say “pay up, or we will destroy your store” to be guilty of extortion. In Trump's case, he tends to say things in a way that it is understood what he wants people to do, according to former "fixer" Michael Cohen.

Hate for Trump sets new record of Americans who can’t stand a president

Published

on

A new poll shows a record number of Americans can't stand the president of the United States.

According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.

During the early 2000s, President George W. Bush enjoyed the benefit of Americans finding him likable and wanting to "have a beer" with the sober leader. That measure of "likability" has been a kind of inspiration for political leaders searching for voters based not on issues but on personality.
