Authoritarianism expert tears into Trump in new diatribe: ‘We have a Russian asset in the White House’

Published

on

Journalist Sarah Kendzior tore into Trump Wednesday on her popular podcastGaslit Nation.’

The writer and expert on authoritarian regimes touched on a variety of topics during the latest episode, including Brexit, and the confirmation of William Barr as attorney general/the installation of Barr’s family members into government (“Barr’s children are a massive conflict of interest, much as Barr himself is a massive conflict of interest…but no one is there to stop it because Trump and his band of goons are who decides what’s a massive conflict of interest,” she said).

But things got especially heated at the end of the podcast, when Kendzior minced few words regarding the woeful current state of affairs in the White House.

“We have a Russian asset in the White House,” she stated. “He is backed by an organized crime syndicate.”

Kendzior continued on by saying that Trump and his associates have been “giving out and selling classified information and state secrets.”

“We are not going to recover from this easily,” the author added.

Co-host Andrea Chalupa also chimed in, saying:

“Kleptocracy here at home is kleptocracy everywhere,” she said. “You have to fight the battle on your own turf — and the battle is global now because we live in the 21st century. Foreign policy is domestic policy.”

In the new episode, Kendzior hinted that Trump was but a symptom of a much bigger problem.

“The issue is beyond Trump…it is beyond one person,” she said.

“The only antidote is to get information out there,” Kendzior implored, urging her listeners to get more involved and to not simply wait for Mueller’s report to fix what she claims is a far bigger issue of corruption within the United States government.

“You should call on your representatives for impeachment hearings to get this information to the American public….the public is owed this,” she said.

Hope Hicks told Congress that Trump was ‘serious’ about accepting foreign help: Jerry Nadler

Published

on

Former White House communications director Hope Hicks told Congress on Wednesday that President Donald Trump really does welcome foreign assistance to help him win elections, according to Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY).

In a statement released Thursday, Nadler revealed that "Ms. Hicks made clear that she understood the President to be serious when he said that he would accept foreign interference in our elections" and "she also made clear that even she knew that such foreign assistance should be rejected and reported to the FBI."

Nadler then put Hicks's testimony in the broader context of Trump telling ABC News' George Stephanopoulos last week that he would welcome the help of a foreign government who came to him and offered him dirt on a political opponent.

Ex-prosecutor slams Congress for not jailing subpoena violators in the Trump administration: ‘It’s incomprehensible’

Published

on

House Democrats have been blocked at every turn from their lawful oversight functions as President Donald Trump's administration directs its members to ignore subpoenas for information on a variety of topics, from the Russia investigation to the census.

On Thursday, former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner castigated Democrats for their unwillingness to use their biggest weapon in the subpoena fight: inherent contempt.

It’s incomprehensible that Congress appears unwilling to use its lawful inherent contempt powers to force the issue of administration members ignoring properly issued subpoenas. Like a football team refusing to pass the ball, forever running up the middle, gaining zero yards. https://t.co/AaWvEsJvk2
