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.

Published

In a column for the Washington Post, Karen Tumulty pointed out that Senate Republicans' insistence on snapping up the seat of the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg before the election -- after blocking Merrick Garland in 2016 -- is one more reason why they GOP must lose control of the Senate.

With Republican lawmakers fanning out on Sunday defending their hypocrisy on presidential election-year votes on high court nominees, Tumulty wasn't having it and called some of them out by name.

Trump and his supporters have made a mockery of US patriotism

Published

on

On September 17, in a speech delivered at the National Archives Museum, President Trump announced he was signing an executive order establishing the 1776 Commission, aimed at promoting what he called a "patriotic" and "pro-America" education.  The announcement was a direct attack on the 1619 Project, a New York Times initiative that explores the legacy of slavery in the United States. For Trump, teaching critical race studies is akin to committing child abuse "in the truest sense of those words."
