Senate intel committee has made ‘multiple criminal referrals’ to Mueller and may bust Don Jr on lies: report

Published

on

The Senate Intelligence Committee has “made multiple criminal referrals” to special counsel Robert Mueller in the Trump-Russia investigation, reports NBC News.

The report says that Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) disclosed the news on Thursday, but added, “we’re not going to talk about any individuals.”

The Senate committee has been investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and that they are now “combing through witness testimony for possible misleading or untruthful statements.”

The news on the referrals is also sourced to Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) who said the committee “made referrals where appropriate.”

“I am very glad the special counsel is pursuing those who mislead members of congress,” she said.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) says that Donald Trump Jr. might be in trouble for lying to the committee.

“My impression from watching Donald Trump Jr. in that meeting is that he evaded and contradicted himself in many of his answers,” Blumenthal said on the day the transcript was released. “I have no confidence that he has told the whole truth.”

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.

United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal

Published

on

The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.

However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

In reality, it is the second time the three countries have triumphantly announced the conclusion of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the deal meant to replace the 25-year-old NAFTA, which President Donald Trump complains has been "a disaster" for the US.

WATCH: Maddow hilariously recaps Trump’s ‘shenanigans in the Oval Office’ with the Russian foreign minister

Published

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow on Tuesday examined President Donald Trump's meeting with Russian Federation Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov -- on the same day that the House of Representatives unveiled articles of impeachment against the commander-in-chief.

Following the meeting, Lavrov trolled Trump on the issues of foreign election interference and Trump's habit of revealing classified intelligence.

"Given that, given the way the president is being impeached for having done all those things to Ukraine in and way that undermined our alliance with them and specifically their fight against Russian aggression -- which has, you know, led to a five-year-long war in Ukraine -- I mean given the fact he's being impeached for undermining Ukraine in its war against Russia, this is heck of a day to choose to have the Russian foreign minister sitting on your lap in the Oval Office," Maddow said.
