Published

On Tuesday, Special counsel Robert Mueller provided judges heavily redacted documents against President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

Manafort was accused of lying to investigators. According to CNN, the documents provided evidence that Manafort lied to investigators.

“There are 30 pages in this,” said CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “Another 70 or 80 pages of various appendixes. He was still in touch after he left and was no longer the campaign chairman.”

“I think there are a couple of takeaways here,” former CIA officer Phil Mudd said. “You put a match and you’ll get a blow torch response. This is about FBI evidence. It includes interviews with Rick Gates, financial information, telephone calls, e-mail records, travel records. Manafort is trying to get off the hook. They crushed him like a bug and said allegations are true and you’re going to spend time in the big house.”

The so-called emoluments clause has been the center of a case that many legal scholars have been making that President Donald Trump is regularly violating the Constitution by continuing to accept payments from foreign governments via his businesses.

Chris Wallace shreds Ken Starr: Trump’s scandal ‘a much bigger issue than whether Bill Clinton lied about sex’

Published

on

Fox News host Chris Wallace argued that the deeds President Donald Trump is accused of are more serious to the country than President Bill Clinton's actions, who was impeached for lying about sex.

During a break in impeachment hearings on Monday, Wallace called out Ken Starr's "characterization of this process and what we heard today... he said that the presentation against the president is narrow, prosecutors look through the world through dirty windows, it's slanted."

"And you know, it just seems to me -- and Ken, I see you there on the screen so I'll be talking directly to you -- when you compare this to the Clinton impeachment, which was basically about whether the president had lied under oath about sex," Wallace continued. "I'm not talking about whether this story is true or not."

Estranged Republican horrified her former party thinks Trump is better than Lincoln

Published

on

Estranged former Republican Ashley Pratte found herself aghast by a recent poll showing a majority of GOP voters now rate President Donald Trump more favorably than Abraham Lincoln.

Writing for NBC News, Pratte argued that Lincoln, widely considered by historians to be one of America's greatest presidents, was the polar opposite of Trump.

"Trump’s years in office have been full of nepotism, scandal, profiting from his position as president and now he is about to become the third-ever president to be impeached," she argued. "So how can those same Republicans now honestly believe that Trump has, in any way, been a good president, let alone one of the best?"
