Ex-CIA head reveals Mueller investigation of Trump will be ‘bearing fruit’ on multiple fronts

Published

on

John Brennan, who served as CIA director under President Obama, went on MSNBC’s Meet The Press on Friday evening to talk about the investigations into Donald Trump.

Brennan is now a senior intelligence contributor, and stopped by to discuss the Investigator General’s report on the FBI and former director James Comey..

Brennan also expressed the upmost confidence in Robert Mueller—and hinted that he thought Mueller had the goods on Trump.

“I believe that Bob Mueller’s special counsel team has a number of investigative threads that they have been pulling over the last year that are going to be bearing fruit,” he said. “And I am counting on director Mueller to once and for all address the issue about whether or not there was conspiracy, whether or not there was collusion with Russia. Despite what Mr. Trump said, that the DOJ IG report exonerated him, it did nothing.”

Brennan refused to say whether he’d seen “evidence” of criminal wrongdoing by Trump—but said that Mueller will figure it out.

“Since I have been out of office, I have seen a lot of reporting that indicates to me there was a lot of collaboration, a lot of interaction, that to me requires people like Bob Mueller and others to look at whether or not it rose and reached the threshold of criminal activity.”

John Heilemann was interviewed by Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC's "The Last Word."

"The attorney general, from the moment he walked into this job, has behaved in a -- as a ruthless, relentless political hack and a thug and who has behaved not as attorney general of the United States," Heilemann said.

"He made a travesty of the Mueller report and continues to lie on Donald Trump's behalf at every opportunity," he added.

Trump welcomed Russia’s Sergey Lavrov to the White House — to humiliate us all

Published

on

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.

United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal

Published

on

The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.

However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

In reality, it is the second time the three countries have triumphantly announced the conclusion of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the deal meant to replace the 25-year-old NAFTA, which President Donald Trump complains has been "a disaster" for the US.
