‘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.

These 7 details from the damning Sharpiegate report show it was a dark omen of Trump’s destructive potential

Published

While it was dismissed by some as an overhyped media obsession, the presidential scandal that has come to be known as "Sharpiegate" was, in fact, an early warning sign of the truly catastrophic potential of Donald Trump.

The story arose out of Hurricane Dorian, which began its deliberate march up toward the East Coast of the United States in late August and early September of 2019. It ravaged the Bahamas, and officials feared the damage it could inflict stateside. But then came a Trump tweet on Sept. 1, and later comments to reporters, in which he warned that Alabama was in the storm's path. He said it was among the states "most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated."

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis finally caved in to pressure to release the actual numbers of coronavirus cases in the state's hospitals.

"The data, which for the first time breaks down the number of people in the hospital with coronavirus, was promised by the state two weeks ago," the report explained.

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace asks why Bill Barr is trying to ‘erase Robert Mueller’s investigation’ before November

Published

on

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace returned to television Friday night to address what she called outright corruption in the Trump White House after another example of the president trying to escape the consequences of the law.

Wallace began by calling Attorney General William Barr nothing more than Trump's "bouncer."

"He has been intellectually overestimated from day one. He is not a mastermind of anything," said Wallace. "He is Donald Trump's body man."

She cited "well-sourced spin" coming from the White House Friday evening, because there were people that she said were "enlisted" with trying to talk Trump out of commuting Roger Stone's sentence. She anticipated that Barr and White House Counsel Pat Cipollone may huff and puff about the act, but that they won't quit over it. "And we should remember their names forever. They are all accomplices in the greatest corruption of one of the most sacred powers."
