‘Angers me to my core’: Bitter GOP congressman shreds Trump for ‘pissing’ on him after losing House

Published

on

Retiring Rep. Ryan Costello (R-PA) on Wednesday let out a howl of anger after watching President Donald Trump publicly shame losing GOP lawmakers for not “embracing” him enough during their campaigns.

In a bitter tweet published while watching Trump’s press conference, Costello blamed Trump for the GOP losing its House majority, while also lamenting the humiliation that Republican lawmakers have endured over the past two years while Trump has been president.

“To deal with harassment and filth spewed at GOP members of Congress in tough seats every day for two years, because of [Trump],” he began. “To bite your lip more times [than] you’d care to; to disagree and separate from POTUS on principle and civility in your campaign; to lose because of POTUS and have him piss on you. Angers me to my core.”

Although the retiring Costello was not up for reelection on Tuesday, he did watch his district — Pennsylvania’s 6th — fall to Democrat Chrissy Houlahan, who defeated GOP rival Greg McCauley.

Mueller’s investigation did nothing to stop the next Russian attack: Cybersecurity expert

Published

on

The special counsel investigation of Russian election interference accomplished almost nothing to prevent further attacks on U.S. democracy, according to a cybersecurity expert.

Robert Mueller's investigation resulted in convictions for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his deputy Rick Gates, along with former national security adviser Mike Flynn and others, but the former FBI director had little authority to hold Russian agents accountable for the crimes he uncovered, wrote cybersecurity analyst Robert Johnson for The Daily Beast.

Want to meet with the Trump Administration? Donald Trump Jr.’s hunting buddy Tommy Hicks can help

Tommy Hicks Jr. isn’t in government, but he’s a longtime pal of the president’s son. That has put him in the room when the administration talks China and 5G policy, and it lets him help others — including one friend who had $143 million riding on the outcome.
