‘They think the bomb’s coming this week’: Trump allies are bracing for a Don Jr’s looming Mueller indictment

Published

on

Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman is reporting that allies of President Donald Trump are bracing for an indictment of the president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.

In particular, White House allies tell Sherman that Trump Jr. could get indicted not only for lying to Congress about President Trump’s knowledge of the infamous 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russian agents, but also for actions he’s taken as an executive at the Trump Organization.

What is particularly concerning for Trump Jr., Sherman’s sources say, was the revelation that former Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen has been giving the New York State Attorney General’s Office information about the Trump Organization’s finances.

In anticipation of being indicted, one source tells Sherman that Trump Jr. has gone on a hunting trip to Canada to avoid media inquiries.

“They think the bomb’s coming this week, and he doesn’t want to be anywhere near a microphone if the bomb drops,” the source explained.

Elsewhere in Sherman’s report, it’s revealed that the White House is spiraling into “chaos” in anticipation of Mueller’s sentencing memo about former campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

“There’s a feeling this could all unwind quickly,” one Republican told Sherman.

‘Trump became what we feared’: New Lincoln Project ad accuses Trump of using the Bible as a prop to boost his polls

Published

on

A brutal new ad from the GOP group The Lincoln Project called "War Zone" is attacking President Donald Trump for becoming what Americans have feared he would.

He didn't come out of hiding this week to help calm the nation or to bring Americans together.

"He wasn't there to offer words of calm and comfort," the ad said. "Instead, he became what we all feared. Evoked the worst of our past. Threatened our governors and states. He ordered our own soldiers who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan to flood the streets, instructing them to turn against Americans. Used churches and the Holy Bible as political props. He didn't invoke the Lord to give us wisdom, but to boost his polls."

James Mattis takes swipe at Trump: We have gone ‘three years without mature leadership’

Published

on

On Wednesday, The Atlantic reported that President Donald Trump's former Defense Secretary James Mattis has written a furious condemnation of the president, saying he is incapable of "mature leadership" and accusing him of deliberately trying to turn Americans against one another.

“I have watched this week’s unfolding events, angry and appalled,” wrote Mattis, according to the article. “The words ‘Equal Justice Under Law’ are carved in the pediment of the United States Supreme Court. This is precisely what protesters are rightly demanding. It is a wholesome and unifying demand — one that all of us should be able to get behind. We must not be distracted by a small number of lawbreakers. The protests are defined by tens of thousands of people of conscience who are insisting that we live up to our values — our values as people and our values as a nation ... We must reject and hold accountable those in office who would make a mockery of our Constitution.”
