WATCH: Trump angrily rants against national security officials while defending ‘good person’ Manafort

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Friday lashed out against multiple career national security officials while praising former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who is on trial for charges of money laundering and tax fraud.

When asked about Manafort, Trump said the fact that his former campaign chairman was on trial was “very sad” for the United States.

“I think the whole Manafort trial is very sad,” the president said. “When you look at what’s going on there, I think it’s a very sad day for our country. He worked for me for a very short period of time. He happens to be a very good person. I think it’s very sad what they’ve done to Paul Manafort.”

Trump also attacked multiple former national security officials whom he accused of colluding against him — and he also said that special counsel Robert Mueller had multiple “conflicts” that made him unfit to investigate the president.

“Mueller has a lot of conflicts also directly,” Trump said. “You know that Mr. Mueller is highly conflicted. In fact, Comey is, like, his best friend. I could go into conflict after conflict. Sadly, Mr. Mueller is conflicted. Let him write his report. We did nothing. There’s no collusion.”

Published

It's clear that Fox News and other right-wing reporters are trying to create boogymen in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A new analysis by CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, revealed that the conservative network has said Ocasio-Cortez's name more than CNN and MSNBC combined.

"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"
