Donald Trump’s biographer David Cay Johnston predicted that more women will probably be outed for affairs they’ve had with the president over the years.
In an interview with SiriusXMProgress host Dean Obeidallah, Johnston said “there are lots of other women,” specifically “brand-name women,” that he thinks are likely hoping they don’t get “dragged into this.”
“I know who they are,” he said. “They are not in the record. But they may” become part of the ongoing scandals.
Obeidallah clarified that “brand-name” meant that they’re famous enough that people know who they are. He asked the biographer if he could “tape once or twice” if the name is one of the people, but Johnston refused to play along.
“This means nothing to the GOP. He could have slept with one hundred women, he could have numerous children out of wedlock,” Obeidallah said.
“He could have paid for numerous abortions through friends, and the party of ‘Family Values’ that constantly rails against abortion would give him a pass,” Johnston continued. “This is — you know, Dean, everything that I predicted that Donald would do in office before he entered office has turned out to be correct.”
He confessed that he was “really wrong” about one thing: He anticipated that the GOP would respect their own institutions enough to have acted by now. They have not.

GOP lawmaker goes on extended rant about Schiff to duck Tapper questions about Trump intimidating witnesses
On Sunday morning House Intelligence Committee member Rep. Mike Murphy (R-OH) attempted to blow off questions by CNN's Jake Tapper over whether President Donald Trump was trying to intimidate former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch with a tweet during her testimony, choosing instead to attack committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) for wanting to impeach the president.
Following a long interview where the State of the Union host had to correct the Ohio Republican's assertions multiple times -- with Tapper once flatly stating "That's not true" -- the CNN host asked about Trump's tweets that were immediately characterized as witness intimidation.
Chris Wallace crushes GOP Whip Steve Scalise’s twisted defense of Trump: ‘We’re not talking about the whistleblower’
House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) struggled on Sunday to defend President Donald Trump's alleged attempt to bribe the president of Ukraine to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
During an interview on FOX News Sunday, Wallace grilled Scalise about reports that U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland was overheard saying Trump only cared about things that benefit him like an investigation into Biden.
Wallace pointed out that Trump "never mentions the word corruption" in either of his telephone calls with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky but he did mention Joe Biden and his son.
