Former Whitewater prosecutor: Mueller has Trump’s tax returns

Published

on

On MSNBC’s Hardball on Tuesday, two panelists told host Chris Matthews that special counsel Robert Mueller likely has already obtained President Donald Trump’s tax returns.

During the 2016 campaign, Trump was the only modern presidential nominee to not release his tax returns to the public.

“What’s Trump most worried about, the business end, obstruction end or the collusion piece?” Matthews asked. “Where is he most worried?”

“The financials,” Atlantic correspondent Natasha Bertrand replied. “Because of the tax returns he’s still trying to hide”

“I think Mueller probably has them,” predicted Kim Wehle, a former Assistant U.S. Attorney and Associate Independent Counsel during Whitewater investigation.”

“I think he has them, but he doesn’t want them publicly released, and there’s a reason for that,” Bertrand added.

“Why?” Matthews asked. “Because he’s not rich?”

“Maybe they show some evidence of wrongdoing,” Bertrand replied.

“His hands are smaller than we thought?” Matthews wondered.

Published

On Monday, the Daily Beast reported that the new 007 -- the special agent in the James Bond series -- will be portrayed by the black actress Lashana Lynch.

"Bond is about the guns and the girls," Shapiro said, noting that a woman in a seductive role was not realistic.

Federal investigators have been able to “dramatically expand” their investigation into financier and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein as prosecutors bring sex trafficking charges against him, Assistant U.S. Attorney Alex Rossmiller said in court on Monday.

The government revealed the expansion of the case at the day’s bail hearing. In searching the defendant’s house, investigators found an old passport with Epstein picture and a fake name that listed Saudi Arabia as the location of his residence, the prosecutor said.

The judge was surprised at this revelation, NBC News reported, asking the attorney, “Say again?”

Will Hurd becomes first GOP lawmaker to condemn Trump’s ‘racist and xenophobic’ attacks on Dems

Published

on

Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX) on Monday became the first Republican lawmaker to unequivocally condemn President Donald Trump's racist attacks against four Democratic lawmakers.

When asked by CNN's Christiane Amanpour about Trump's weekend tweets, in which he told Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) to “go back” to their countries despite the fact that all four are American citizens, Hurd did not hold back on repudiating the president's statements.

"Those tweets are racist, and xenophobic," he said. "They’re also inaccurate. The four women he’s referring to are actually citizens of the United States."
