Republican strategist goes on epic rant about ‘assemblage of crooks’ and ‘outright weirdos’ working for Trump

GOP strategist Steve Schmidt slammed Republicans who work for President Donald Trump in an epic rant on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House on Friday.

Anchor Nicolle Wallace, who served in the George W. Bush White House for six years, reported on staffer’s playing the game “icing” — which involves hiding Smirnoff Ice, which a discoverer must immediately drop to a knee and chug.

“This story triggered me today, made me crazy,” Wallace admitted.

“Yeah, it’s not cute, it’s disgusting,” Schmidt charged. “The comportment of these people is shameful.”

“It’s just really a tragedy that we have tens of thousands of kids look at the President of the United States and they see a joke,” he observed. “You can’t watch the evening news with your children, because any different moment the newest porn star will be on explaining the relationship.”

Schmidt had no sympathy for Republican operatives who work for Trump.

“And from a personnel perspective, we’ve never quite seen the assemblage of crooks, just outright weirdos, wife beaters, drunk-drivers, complete and total incompetents that’s been assembled,” Schmidt charged. “If you took the ten greatest H.R. managers in the world and put them together and said we want to form a 1927 Yankees of incompetents, it’s not possible they would have done a better job than assembling this team and it’s not possible that this team could have let loose more chaos than they already have.”

Inspector general found ‘no evidence of political bias’ in Trump-Russia probe: report

Published

on

Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report on the origins of the probe into the Trump campaign's contacts with Russia has found that there was no evidence of political bias on the part of law enforcement officials who began the investigation.

The Associated Press reports that the report "is expected to conclude there was an adequate basis for opening one of the most politically sensitive investigations in FBI history and one that Trump has denounced as a witch hunt."

The IG's report also found that former British spy Christopher Steele, whose infamous dossier on Trump featured salacious allegations about the president and Russian prostitutes, played no role in the opening of the probe, despite claims from Trump's Republican allies who argued that it was central to the investigation.

DOJ argues Congress can’t stop Trump Org from taking foreign payments — despite Constitution’s emoluments clause

Published

on

The so-called emoluments clause has been the center of a case that many legal scholars have been making that President Donald Trump is regularly violating the Constitution by continuing to accept payments from foreign governments via his businesses.

The Washington Post reports that an attorney from the Trump Department of Justice argued on Monday that the emoluments clause doesn't actually prevent Trump from accepting payments from foreign governments, even though the clause specifically states that "no person holding any office of profit or trust under them, shall, without the consent of the Congress, accept of any present, emolument, office, or title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State."
