GOP consultant, and frequent critic of Donald Trump, Rick Wilson raked the president over the coals on Saturday morning, telling an MSNBC panel that Trump is using Twitter to fire up his base and bait them  into ignoring the “rising tide of trouble” he’s in.

Following a morning of Trump frantically lashing out on Twitter at the FBI, the media and Democrats, Wilson  smacked the president for “rage tweeting,” awith Wilson also pointing at White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders and legal adviser Rudy Giuliani.

“I think in the response from my old boss, Rudy and White House and Sarah Sanders and rage tweeting this morning, there’s no denial embedded in their response at all,” Wilson observed, noting a New York Times report on Trump being investigated for being a possible Kremlin agent.

“They are not denying this” he continued. “They are saying we will attack Jim Comey and [Andrew] McCabe and the FBI. All of this is Donald Trump’s consciousness of guilt screaming out of these responses — they are hoping they can throw more bait out there to the Trump base and they will stick with him.”

“Proof of his collusion with Russia, the proof of the conspiracy of his campaign to cooperate with Russia, his long-standing business ties with Russia and post-election behavior toward Russia has raised not just a few red flags but a whole sea of red flags,” he accused.

“It seems these folks have their message together because there’s not a real defense here,” Wilson continued. “Donald Trump said these things to [NBC’s] Lester Holt, said these things in the Oval Office to the Russians.”

“God knows what he said to Putin behind closed doors,” he concluded before adding, “This is a rising tide of trouble to this president.”

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump was reported to be planning to appoint U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell to serve as acting Director of National Intelligence — a position for which he has zero qualifications. The move raised immediate fears, given that Grenell is a hardline Trump loyalist.

But it doesn't stop there. Reports also suggest that the president intends for Grenell to keep serving as Ambassador to Germany at the same time as he is overseeing every U.S. intelligence agency.

‘You lost me’: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez graciously defuses confrontational question

Published

on

In an appearance on ABC's popular daytime talk show "The View" Wednesday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke about what she called a "disconnect" between centrist, establishment members of the Democratic Party and progressive lawmakers who have been viewed as agitators in the party.

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg said that while she had applauded Ocasio-Cortez's surprise victory in her 2018 primary against Wall Street-backed former Rep. Joe Crowley, she has since cooled on the lawmaker due to what she views as a dismissal of baby boomers' past activism. Ocasio-Cortez has pushed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to back a Green New Deal, called on her fellow Democrats to support Medicare for All, and criticized Democrats who take big-money donations from the financial, for-profit healthcare, and fossil fuel sectors.

Published

Three security experts (Alex Finley, John Sipher and Asha Rangappa) address this concern in a February 19 article for Just Security, warning that troubling vulnerabilities remain in the United States’ election system.
