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.”

Alabama Republican: ‘I want to see more people’ get coronavirus

Published

On Thursday, Alabama Senate President Pro Tempore Del Marsh suggested that he wanted more people to get coronavirus — because he thinks America would develop "herd immunity" and reduce the spread enough to protect more vulnerable populations.

"I'm not as concerned so much as the number of cases. In fact, quite honestly, I want to see more people, because we start reaching an immunity the more people have it and get through it," said Marsh. "I don't want any deaths, as few as possible, say, I get it, but those people who are susceptible to the disease, especially more serious pre-existing conditions, elderly population, those folks, we need to, you know, do all we can to protect them. But I'm not concerned, I want to make sure that everybody can receive care."

The Secretary of Defense was briefed on Russian bounty on American soldiers — proving it isn’t the hoax Trump said it was

Published

on

Last week, President Donald Trump finally heard the news that the Russian government was giving cash to Afghanistan's Taliban forces to murder American soldiers.

Initially, he began with Step one in the Trump list of processing a scandal: denial.

"Nobody briefed or told me, @VP Pence, or Chief of Staff @MarkMeadows about the so-called attacks on our troops in Afghanistan by Russians, as reported through an "anonymous source" by the Fake News @nytimes. Everybody is denying it & there have not been many attacks on us. Nobody's been tougher on Russia than the Trump Administration. With Corrupt Joe Biden & Obama, Russia had a field day, taking over important parts of Ukraine - Where's Hunter? Probably just another phony Times hit job, just like their failed Russia Hoax. Who is their 'source'?" tweeted Trump on June 28.
