California prosecutors ramp up investigation of Trump as Mueller report is reviewed

Published

on

Along with investigators in New York, Los Angeles prosecutors have also joined in on probes into President Donald Trump.

The New York Times reported that California prosecutors have taken part in inquiries about the president’s inaugural fund, according to sources briefed on the investigation.

“The Justice Department continues to investigate the business and political dealings of Elliott Broidy, a top fund-raiser for Mr. Trump’s campaign and inauguration, who tried to use his access to the Trump team to boost his businesses,” the Times reported, adding that “federal investigators in Los Angeles have also taken part in the inquiry.”

The report enumerated the investigations into the president that are continuing to take place in the wake of the submission of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report to the Justice Department.

Federal prosecutors in Washington, DC, for instance, “will handle the prosecution of the Trump political adviser Roger J. Stone Jr., who was charged as part of Mr. Mueller’s investigation.”

New York authorities are separately “pursuing several investigations focused on the president, his associates and his business,” including a mortgage fraud case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and “civil inquiries into the Trump Organization’s insurance practices, real estate deals, and whether the family’s charitable foundation violated tax laws.”

Prosecutors in Brooklyn are also looking into Trump inaugural committee donations and the Middle East ties of the committee’s chairman, Trump’s longtime friend Tom Barrack who in 2018 was interviewed by Mueller, people briefed on the discussion told the Times.

Trump is endangering the US by governing like he’s directing a reality TV show: officials

President Donald Trump seems to be waffling on whether or not he wants a war in Iran. As it stands, he seems to be against it, pulling back on a military strike that would have killed 150 people and most certainly begun another Middle Eastern war.

In a report from the Washington Post, leaders from policy to politics are telling the president to get it together. The "freewheeling" style of politics may have been a quirky style, but now it's putting the United States in a difficult position.

Conservative columnist tells Trump make good on his threats with Iran or ‘shut up’

Published

on

President Donald Trump appeared to back down last week when it came to an attack on Iran after an oil tanker was allegedly fired upon and the country shot down a U.S. drone during surveillance.

Republicans and even Trump himself has mocked former President Barack Obama for drawing a "red line" for Syria but being unwilling to act further. In Obama's case, the president saw the country cross the red line and asked Congress to give him a declaration of war. Republicans refused at the time.
