Bombshell new evidence offers ‘some of the strongest’ proof yet implicating Trump in obstruction: report

Published

on

An explosive new report from independent journalist Murray Waas published in the New York Review of Books claims that special counsel Robert Mueller is in possession of highly incriminating evidence that implicates President Donald Trump in obstruction of justice.

Waas writes that the previously undisclosed evidence — which his sources say includes “highly confidential White House records and testimony by some of President Trump’s own top aides” — offers “some of the strongest evidence to date implicating the president of the United States in an obstruction of justice.”

In fact, sources who have reviewed the evidence now think it is “all but inevitable” that Mueller will deliver a report to the United States Department of Justice that will make a case that the president broke the law.

The central piece of evidence regards former FBI Director James Comey’s claim that Trump had asked him to drop the FBI’s case into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, whom Trump had fired in early 2017 after he lied to the FBI about his conversations with then-Russian ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak during the presidential transition period after the 2016 election.

Trump’s attorneys have tried to argue that Trump believed that Flynn was already in the clear when he asked Comey to drop the case — however, Waas’ sources say that “previously undisclosed evidence indicates just the opposite — that President Trump was fully informed that Flynn was the target of prosecutors.”

Specifically, Waas writes that a “a confidential White House memorandum” written shortly before Trump made his request to Comey indicates that then-chief of staff Reince Priebus and White House counsel Don McGahn both directly told the president that Flynn was under criminal investigation.

The entire report, which outlines a damning timeline of events regarding Trump’s interactions with Comey, can be read in its entirety at this link.

‘Bye Felicia’: Sheriff says Buffalo cops resigning from emergency unit should be booted from the force

Published

on

On MSNBC Saturday, Philadelphia County Sheriff Rochelle Bilal laid into the Buffalo police officers who resigned from the emergency unit, allegedly to protest the disciplinary action against two cops who shoved an elderly man to the ground.

"As far as those officers resigning out of protest, I would say to that, Bye Felicia, because they should go," said Bilal. "Because if they didn't see anything wrong with that, then they shouldn't have been on the force from the beginning. We are not run by a Gestapo type of community. This has been going on for decades. So at this point now, we should be fighting for those who want to be on this job to treat people fairly and for those who don't, say bye. Get them out of here, those of us who want to do this job right want them gone anyway."
