Special counsel Robert Mueller recommended no jail time for former Donald Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn following his “substantial cooperation” on three investigations — including Trump campaign collusion with Russia.

The heavily redacted document reveals Flynn was interviewed 19 times while cooperating with federal investigators.

But Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s defense attorney, attempted to downplay the implications for the White House, NBC News chief White House correspondent Hallie Jackson reported Tuesday.

“I just got off the phone with the president’s outside attorney, Rudy Giuliani,” Jackson reported. “And Giuliani is, frankly, downplaying the headlines that are coming out tonight, telling us he is not concerned Flynn shared anything with the special counsel that could point the finger at President Trump.”

“In fact, Giuliani brought up a Yiddish word, ‘bupkis’ — they don’t have bupkis,” she continued.

Bupkis means nothingness.

Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City, said that if Flynn had information to hurt Trump, he would know it by now.

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.

Top officials from a raft of departments have been meeting to hash out the best approach.

How Trump could save America

Published

on

Donald Trump keeps claiming that his accomplishments exceed those of all previous American presidents.

Earlier this year, the White House published an amazing piece, titled “The Historic Results of Donald J. Trump’s First Two Years in Office.” Trump´s staff patted itself on the back so hard it must have hurt.

You don’t have to be a psychiatrist to realize the following: First, Trump has an obsessive desire to claim himself a success story. Second, despite his massive narcissism, he is painfully aware that he is an unmitigated failure. That is what explains his irrepressible desire to aggrandize himself.

2020 Election

Democrats are on the verge of setting a ‘time bomb’ for any candidate who can defeat Trump

Published

If a new president takes over the White House in January 2021, he or she may quickly find that the Democratic Party that just won control of the executive branch left a loaded gun in the hands of the Republicans, who are all too eager to use it.

That should be the takeaway from reports about the budget negotiations between the House Democrats and the Trump administration. According to Bloomberg reporter Sahil Kapur, the parties are coalescing around an agreement to raise spending by $350 billion, offset that increase somewhat with about $75 billion, and extend the debt ceiling — now set to expire in the fall — to July 31, 2021.
