Rosenstein hits back at Trump’s repeated claim that Mueller’s probe is a ‘scam witch hunt’

Published

on

In a rare interview, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein contradicted Donald Trump’s repeated insistence that the Russia investigation is a “scam witch hunt.”

“I committed I would ensure the investigation was appropriate and independent and reached the right result, whatever it may be,” Rosenstein told the Wall Street Journal. “I believe I have been faithful to that.”

Trump doubled down on the “witch hunt” comments during a Tuesday morning tweetstorm that also included his now-infamous comment about Stormy Daniels having a “horseface.”

In the tweet, the president expressed exaggerated incredulity over the continued employment of top Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, who he called “a Pawn in this whole SCAM (WITCH HUNT) [sic].”

In his interview with the Journal, Rosenstein said he was “pleased the president has been supportive” of his efforts to pursue and prosecute Russians’ electoral meddling.

Over the past few weeks, you may have noticed that the NeverTrumpers — repentant Republicans and conservatives — have been offering up lots of advice for how the Democrats can win the next election.

To be clear: I’m not talking about conceding on policy or platform planks. I’m merely suggesting a detente between voices who all agree that Trump is a menace and his presidency is an existential national crisis.

Morning Joe panel brutally dismantles Lindsey Graham for doubling down and backing Trump’s extreme racism

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough was left speechless by Sen. Lindsey Graham's impassioned defense of President Donald Trump's racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen.

The "Morning Joe" host sat in stunned silence after rolling video of the South Carolina Republican defending Trump's tweets, and doubling down by hurling his own slurs against the first-year lawmakers.

"You call Americans in Congress communists?" Scarborough said, after gathering his thoughts, "and you say they hate America? And then your punch line to that is aim higher?"

Scarborough, who served alongside Graham as a Republican congressman, said the episode was a shameful new low for the veteran lawmaker.

The Army Corps of Engineers could flood 130,000 acres of farmland in southeast Missouri by blowing up levees on a floodway on the Mississippi River if the remnants of Barry or other storms this summer dump too much rain.

The Coast Guard has posted plans to halt barge traffic if necessary on the Mississippi from the junction with the Ohio River at Cairo, Ill., to downstream of New Madrid, Mo.
