Trump blames FBI for giving information to the ‘fake news media’ — who are ‘the enemy of the people’

Published

In a Sunday tweet, President Donald Trump called the “fake news media” the “enemy of the people,” and blamed the FBI for leaking information.

“Why was the FBI giving so much information to the Fake News Media [sic]. They are not supposed to be doing that, and knowing the enemy of the people Fake News, they put their own spin on it – truth doesn’t matter to them!” Trump tweeted.

Ironically, Trump’s own White House leaks information like a sieve and has engaged in a battle to uncover the so-called leakers. Fire and Fury author Michael Wolff once called Trump the biggest leaker in the White House.

Trump also told veteran CBS 60 Minutes correspondent Lesley Stahl during the 2016 election that his war with the press is actually about inoculating himself against the truth taking him down.

“I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so when you write negative stories about me, no one will believe you,” Stahl recalled Trump saying.

Trump went on to attack the former FBI agent that was briefly on the team of special counsel Robert Mueller. The man, Peter Strzok has not been on the team for over a year.

“Why was the FBI’s sick loser, Peter Strzok, working on the totally discredited Mueller team of 13 Angry & Conflicted Democrats, when Strzok was giving Crooked Hillary a free pass yet telling his lover, lawyer Lisa Page, that “we’ll stop” Trump from becoming President? Witch Hunt!” Trump tweeted.

“’The highest level of bias I’ve ever witnessed in any law enforcement officer.’” Trey Gowdy on the FBI’s own, Peter Strzok. Also remember that they all worked for Slippery James Comey and that Comey is best friends with Robert Mueller. A really sick deal, isn’t it?” Trump tweeted, quoting Gowdy’s Sunday morning talk commentary.

EU and Britain just struck a Brexit deal — here’s what’s in it

Published

on

"Fair and reasonable." That's how both Britain's Boris Johnson and the EU describe the new draft Brexit deal reached Thursday after days of intense haggling.

Here's what's in the accord -- and what each side gave up to get there.

- Northern Ireland -

Arrangements for the UK province of Northern Ireland were the trickiest part of the new deal, and the core of what has changed since last year's withdrawal agreement, which was rejected by British MPs.

The new protocol stipulates that Northern Ireland remains in Britain's customs territory, but in practice there would be a sort of customs border between the province and the mainland.

Expect exodus of high-ranking Trump officials because they ‘no longer have anything to gain’ by staying: columnist

Published

on

Writing for the conservative Bulwark, columnist and author Robert Tracinski said Donald Trump's Syria debacle is likely the turning point for even the most hardened of his most avid defenders in the White House who will likely start leaving.

As Tracinski began, "Donald Trump’s betrayal of the Kurds is a moment that might be more important than it seems—one that is likely to have a far-reaching impact that goes well beyond what happens in Syria."

Hosting the G-7 at Doral is still worth a million dollars to Trump — even if he donates all the profits: reporter

Published

on

President Donald Trump's chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said that holding the G7 summit at Trump's Doral resort would not be a profit for the president. Reports about it fly in the face of the White House claims, however.

The Miami Herald reported in July, when Trump floated the idea, that Doral is in a financial rut and the G7 meeting could help Trump climb out of it.

"Hosting foreign dignitaries has been a financial boon for Trump’s private Palm Beach Mar-a-Lago Club, providing some insight into what financial gains might be expected from hosting the G7 Summit at Trump Doral," said The Herald.
