Former U.S. attorney Joyce Vance thinks that Donald Trump’s “evolving” stories about Russia, campaign finance, obstructions of justice, James Comey, Michael Cohen and everything else shows that he’s probably guilty.
“You know, as a prosecutor, I always like to wait and see what the evidence says when it’s all in,” she prefaced while speaking to Kasie Hunt on MSNBC. “But with that caveat, if the president was a businessman who wasn’t protected from indictment by the [Department of Justice] policy, his lawyers would be in the process of negotiating some kind of a global settlement, global plea deal for him.”
Based on the publicly available information, she thinks there’s a “good reason” to believe criminal charges are possible.
“There’s a good reason to believe that there are criminal charges against the president ranging from campaign finance to obstruction,” she explained. “We haven’t seen all of the information about the foundation and inauguration yet, but that looks problematic as well. And so the president’s repeated cries of witch hunt or they’re out to get me. At some point that wears very thin as layer upon layer of wrongdoing and misconduct is weighted down by the president’s changing stories, his constantly shifting stories, which is such a hallmark of a guilty mind.”
Vice News Washington Bureau Chief Shawna Thomas noted that she has no idea how the president is getting any work done for the American people.
Reports last week revealed the president didn’t even come into the office until noon.
“Especially because he has a chief of staff on the way out,” she also mentioned. “That’s the kind of person who helps make sure all of these things run. He’s trying to pick a new chief of staff. Yes, Mick Mulvaney will be the acting chief of staff. He still has to pick one permanently. He still has to fill a lot of cabinet positions. Ryan Zinke is on his way out. Doesn’t seem like he’s focused on his job that much. But he does still travel. He went to the G20 a month ago and talked to China. At least we have that.”
Trump is scheduled to take his holiday vacation from Dec 21 to Jan. 6.

Big turnout for protest in Texas town known as a ‘haven’ for the Ku Klux Klan
Protesters gathered in Vidor, Texas on Saturday for a rally against racism and police violence.
The East Texas town has long had a reputation for racism.
Vidor is a small city of about 11,000 people near the Texas Gulf Coast, not too far from the Louisiana border. Despite the fact that Beaumont, a much bigger city just 10 minutes away, is quite integrated, Vidor is not. There are very few blacks there; it's mostly white. That is in large part because of a history of racism in Vidor, a past that continues to haunt the present," Keith Oppenheim reported for CNN in 2006.
BUSTED: Key Trump aide caught pushing racist vigilantism on social media
Video of a chainsaw-wielding Texas man threatening protesters while shouting the n-word went viral on Friday.
While many people were shocked by the video, one of President Donald Trump's top advisors supported the racism and vigilantism in documented in the video, according to a new report.
"President Donald Trump and his allies for years have amplified racist messages on Twitter while simultaneously reaching out to black and Hispanic voters, a dissonant balancing act that’s now rocking the GOP amid nationwide racial-justice protests," Politico reported Saturday. "The two competing forces collided Saturday on the Twitter feed of Trump campaign senior adviser Mercedes Schlapp, when she boosted a tweet that lauded a man in Texas in a viral video as he yelled the n-word and wielded a chainsaw to chase away anti-racism demonstrators."
