‘Clinical sociopath’ Trump’s ‘mental illness’ helps him lie to people: business reporter

Published

on

Longtime reporter Kurt Eichenwald explained over the weekend how President Donald Trump has leveraged a “mental illness” to help him lie to people over the years.

In a series of tweets on Sunday, Eichenwald recalled interacting with Trump while he was a business reporter in 1987. Trump has a pattern of lying to reporters anonymously to get favorable media coverage, Eichenwald said.

“I have known Donald Trump since 1987,” Eichenwald wrote. “Like everyone else who knows him well, before he became a politician, I know he is liar, a narcissist, and eventually I knew he was mentally ill. At that time, he professed to be a democrat. This had nothing to do with politics.”

Eichenwald remembered pitching an editor a story after Trump lied about a stock trade.

“The editor did not even look up from his computer and said the words I remember to this day: ‘Dog [bites] man. Donald Trump lies,'” Eichenwald said. “In other words, everyone in the financial world KNEW Trump was a pathological liar, in 1987. Proving it was like proving the sun rose in the morning.”

Read all of Eichenwald’s tweets below to learn how Trump’s alleged mental illness was a benefit to him when lying to media outlets.

"[Jackson's] trying to make this bulletproof from a pardon," Napolitano said. "Because she went along exactly with what [Barr] requested."

Adam Schiff sends signal that a Roger Stone pardon would be another impeachable offense

Published

Rep. Adam Schiff suggested that a presidential pardon for Roger Stone would be an impeachable offense.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson sentenced the longtime Republican operative to 40 months in prison, saying Stone had lied to Congress and threatened a witness to cover up possible wrongdoing by President Donald Trump -- and Schiff sent a warning against a pardon.

"Roger Stone was found guilty of lying to Congress and threatening a witness," Schiff tweeted.

Schiff, who led the impeachment inquiry and trial, agreed with Jackson -- whose language echoed the lawmaker's "corrupt scheme and cover-up" indictment during the Senate trial.

At least one supporter of President Donald Trump tried to get a "pardon" chant going, but they were drowned out by the louder "Lock him up" chants.
