Former CIA analyst connects the dots between Stormy Daniels allegations and Trump-Russia Dossier

Published

on

Former CIA counterterrorism analyst Phil Mudd explained on CNN the connection between the Stormy Daniels allegations against President Donald Trump and the Russia investigation being led by special counsel Robert Mueller.

“Is there potentially a national security issue at stake here?” anchor Wolf Blitzer asked.

“I don’t think there is on the U.S. side,” Mudd replied. “Look, we knew the president was sleazy when we elected him.”

However, Mudd reminded that it could suggest areas of compromise that could have national security implications.

“Did the president ever do anything overseas, and particularly in Russia, that would be embarrassing and that he’d like to hide,” the CNN counterterrorism analyst wondered. “That takes you back to the infamous Steele Dossier, Wolf, that information collected by a former British intelligence officer about some of the allegations about the president’s activities in Moscow with women there.”

“If that turns out to be true — and I think we have information that suggests the FBI has corroborated some of that — I could see a national security implication,” Mudd concluded. “But for Stormy Daniels, that one’s out in the open, I don’t see how you can blackmail someone for something that’s public knowledge.”

Some of President Donald Trump's "economic nationalist" allies are furious that Joe Biden beat the White House to the punch with a "Buy American" policy push.

The president's former chief strategist Steve Bannon told the Washington Post's Jeff Stein that Biden's $300 billion domestic spending proposal was "very smart," and said the likely Democratic nominee had scored a win.

"The campaign and White House have been caught flat-footed," Bannon said. "Biden has very smart people around him, particularly on the economic side."

Fox News pundit: Tax returns ruling against Trump is ‘a win for him’ and ‘will help the president’

Published

on

Fox News pundit Katie Pavlich argued on Thursday that a Supreme Court ruling which opened the door for prosecutors to obtain Donald Trump's tax returns is actually "a win" for the president.

Pavlich made the remarks after the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance can request the president's tax records in a public corruption case.

"I think it's a win and a little bit of a loss for President Trump," Pavlich explained. "In the sense that he will now have to deal with a number of these issues and other presidents in the future will as well, whether they are valid requests for information or not and whether they are being made for political for reasons or for valid criminal investigations."

Trump melts down on Twitter after his own Supreme Court nominees rebuke him on financial cases

Published

on

On Thursday, following the 7-2 rulings from the Supreme Court rejecting President Donald Trump's claims of absolute immunity in the New York tax returns and House financial oversight cases, the president took to Twitter to complain.

In the thread, Trump whined that he was being unfairly targeted by the Supreme Court decisions — which were joined by the two justices he appointed — and claimed he was a victim of "prosecutorial misconduct."

We have a totally corrupt previous Administration, including a President and Vice President who spied on my campaign, AND GOT CAIGHT...and nothing happens to them. This crime was taking place even before my election, everyone knows it, and yet all are frozen stiff with fear....
