A shocking Mueller prediction from a top legal analyst at Fox News: Trump Jr. is going to be indicted

Published

on

Fox News’ Judge Andrew Napolitano joined ABC News chief legal analyst Dan Abrams on his SiriusXM show on Wednesday to discuss the implications of special counsel Robert Mueller’s lenient sentencing memo for Michael Flynn, President Trump’s former campaign adviser and national security adviser.

“It’s a huge deal not for what’s in there, but for what is redacted,” Napolitano, a libertarian whose longtime friendship with Trump has not stopped him from criticizing the president, explained to Abrams.

“What is also significant is that Flynn became a cooperating witness a long time ago and the independent counsel, the special counsel reflects that, that he was present almost at the creation of our investigation and was able to guide us in certain areas. I have an idea what that other area may be because last week when Michael Cohen pleaded guilty, and we all in the media went crazy about it, something else that happened that nobody really paid much attention to. And that was a raid on the headquarters of Deutsche Bank in Germany gathering the loan documents for the past twenty years. Who was the principal financier of the Trump Organization for the past twenty years? Deutsche Bank.”

After adding that he is unsure that there is a define connection between the raid of Deutsche Bank and the Trump-Russia scandal, he said that in his opinion, “the president himself should be extremely uncomfortable about this not for his son or son-in-law as much as for himself.”

At that point, Abrams asked whether he thought there would be indictments of people in Trump’s circle.

“Yes. I don’t know who, but I do know that Donald Jr. has told friends that he expects to be indicted,” Napolitano told Abrams. He added that although he expects Donald Trump Jr. to be indicted, as well as Jerome Corsi, he’s not sure about Jared Kushner or Roger Stone. Trump Jr. is the president’s son and Kushner is his son-in-law, while Corsi is a notorious right-wing conspiracy theorist and Stone is a political hatchet man who is alleged to have ties to Russia himself.

He hinted at as much back in August on Fox News:

Napolitano wasn’t the only major American commentator who remarked on the number of redactions from the Mueller memo on Flynn. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who is the Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee, tweeted earlier this week that “the recommendation of no jail time for Flynn, apart from its obvious irony for the man who led chants of ‘lock her up,’ reflects both the timeliness and significance of his help. That most of the details are redacted signals he has given far more than we or the President may know.”

Published

US President Donald Trump signed an executive order imposing the sanctions against Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Monday, taking a dramatic and unprecedented step to increase pressure on Iran after Tehran’s downing of an American drone last week.

‘Dangerous linguistic power’: A historian explains how Trump weaponizes nicknames

Published

on

Is Donald Trump the modern day Earl Long?

A three-time Louisiana governor, Long mastered the art of political ridicule seven decades ago by weaponizing nicknames. The hilarious names Long pinned on his rivals, and the rollicking stories he told about them, riveted audiences bored by puffed-up rhetoric.

While Long’s stunts may be remembered as silly hijinks, there was a sly, often deadly serious, purpose to his technique. He used it to get voters to laugh at his foes and to put them on the defensive––a place politicians never want to be. Tucked within Long’s jests were razor-sharp attacks aimed at exploiting opposition weaknesses––hidden swords inside a pea-patch cloak.

The giant retailer will lay off about 570 employees and close its corporate office near the Charlotte airport, despite signing a 12-year lease just four years earlier, the Charlotte Business Journal reported.

The work done at the Charlotte facility will be outsourced to a firm in Arkansas, according to the report.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
