Trump aides panicked that Democrats will make their lives ‘really miserable’ if they take back Congress

Published

Aides to President Donald Trump know that they are in for a rough time if Democrats retake the House of Representatives this fall.

White House sources tell CNN that they are dreading the prospect of having a Congress that is more willing to conduct oversight of the executive branch.

Another GOP source tells CNN that they particularly dread the prospect of special counsel Robert Mueller releasing a report shortly after the midterm elections — which would give Democrats material that they can investigate from the first day they take office in January.

“If they’re not concerned about that, they should be,” the GOP aide explains. “It would be like a perfect storm.”

An internal GOP document that leaked earlier this month revealed that Republicans are very concerned about Democrats’ potential investigations of the Trump administration on issues ranging from the administration’s handling of helping Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria, the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, and the president’s hush-money payments to former mistresses.

What Zelensky knew: The devastating and darkly ironic impact of Trump’s attempt to bribe Ukraine

Published

on

In their effort to exculpate President Donald Trump in the impeachment inquiry, Republicans put Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s denial that he ever felt pressure from the White House to open up investigations into Democrats at the center of their argument. A new GOP memo says that both leaders have acknowledged “there was no pressure” on the famous July 25 call that sparked the inquiry and thus argues that the allegations made by Democrats that Trump abused his power don’t hold.

Greta Thunberg says ‘people must finally wake up’ to the fact Trump is ‘so extreme’ on climate change

Published

Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg said Tuesday that US President Donald Trump's climate change denialism was "so extreme" that it had helped galvanize the movement to halt long term planetary warming.

She spoke in an interview with AFP on the eve of her departure from North America where she has spent almost three months.

"He's so extreme and he says so extreme things, so I think people wake up by that in a way," the 16-year-old said from on board a sailboat preparing to depart from the East Coast town of Hampton, Virginia for Europe early Wednesday.

"I thought when he got elected, now people will finally, now people must finally wake up," she continued.
