Ex-Tea Party lawmaker blasts Trump apologists: You can’t explain ‘all the lying’ about Russia

Published

on

Former Republican Congressman Joe Walsh has frequently become more and more suspicious of President Donald Trump’s behavior around the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election — and now the former Tea Party lawmaker thinks the GOP will soon come to regret enabling his presidency.

Writing on Twitter, Walsh observed that the Trump White House has once again been caught lying — this time about the president’s role in dictating a misleading statement about Donald Trump Jr.’s infamous meeting at Trump Tower with Russian agents during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“If there was nothing wrong, why did Trump purposely mislead?” he asked.

Walsh then expanded his critique of the president’s behavior and said that the serial lying about the Russia investigation from Trump and his associates was legitimately unnerving.

“Damn near everyone on Team Trump has been caught lying, over and over, about Russia,” he wrote. “Why?”

Finally, Walsh slammed the president for once again attacking investigators who are looking into whether his campaign colluded with Russia or whether the president himself obstructed their efforts to learn the truth — and he said it set a worrying precedent for future presidents to behave the same way.

“The whole point of Trump’s attacks on the IG report, like his attacks on the Mueller investigation, is to make sure his supporters don’t trust or believe the results,” he wrote. “One day, Republicans are going to regret these attacks on the FBI & the Justice Dept.”

"[Jackson's] trying to make this bulletproof from a pardon," Napolitano said. "Because she went along exactly with what [Barr] requested."

Published

on

Rep. Adam Schiff suggested that a presidential pardon for Roger Stone would be an impeachable offense.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson sentenced the longtime Republican operative to 40 months in prison, saying Stone had lied to Congress and threatened a witness to cover up possible wrongdoing by President Donald Trump -- and Schiff sent a warning against a pardon.

"Roger Stone was found guilty of lying to Congress and threatening a witness," Schiff tweeted.

Schiff, who led the impeachment inquiry and trial, agreed with Jackson -- whose language echoed the lawmaker's "corrupt scheme and cover-up" indictment during the Senate trial.
