‘Bye the way’: Trump starts the day with a garbled attack on Robert Mueller and ‘Leakin Lyin James Comey’

Published

on

President Donald Trump started his Friday morning by once again attacking special counsel Robert Mueller in a garbled tweet filled with inaccuracies and lies.

“Robert Mueller and Leakin’ Lyin’ James Comey are Best Friends, just one of many Mueller Conflicts of Interest,” the president wrote. “And bye (sic) the way, wasn’t the woman in charge of prosecuting Jerome Corsi (who I do not know) in charge of ‘legal’ at the corrupt Clinton Foundation? A total Witch Hunt…”

In fact, Mueller and Comey are not “best friends” and Trump actively promoted Corsi’s conspiratorial writings about former President Barack Obama for years back when he was obsessed with finding the former president’s birth certificate.

The president then followed this up with a tweet accusing Mueller and prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, one of the top attorneys at the special counsel’s office, of being “horrible and vicious.”

“Will Robert Mueller’s big time conflicts of interest be listed at the top of his Republicans only Report,” Trump asked rhetorically. “Will Andrew Weissman’s (sic) horrible and vicious prosecutorial past be listed in the Report. He wrongly destroyed people’s lives, took down great companies.”

Among the “great companies” that Weissmann has taken down in his career include Arthur Andersen, the accounting firm that oversaw the finances of infamously crooked energy trading company Enron.

Trump’s latest attacks on the special counsel come on the day when Mueller is expected to release a memo outlining the ways that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort lied to prosecutors even after he pledged to cooperate with the investigation.

John Bolton just got put in his place: report

Published

on

National Security Adviser John Bolton has wanted a war with Iran since long before many Americans were even born. But according to The Daily Beast, he might be losing the internal battle to go to war.

After the Pentagon announced that they had "evidence" that Iran attacked an oil tanker in the Gulf of Oman, political analysts began to speculate it would be used as a justification for war with Iran. But apparently, Trump realized the Middle East saber-rattling doesn't play well in Middle America.

On Monday, Freeport, Illinois resident Shaquille Dukes was arrested outside of FHN Memorial Hospital with an IV attached to his arm.

The reason? A security guard accused him of "trying to leave the hospital to sell the IV equipment on eBay."

Dukes, who is African-American, has filed a racial profiling complaint with the city, insisting that this would never have happened to a white hospital patient. "I'm not just going to sit here and be complacent about what I know is an illegality," he told the Journal Standard.
