Trump wants media outlets to fire his critics after Mueller report lets him off the hook

Published

on

President Donald Trump wants vengeance now that special counsel Robert Mueller has turned in his report, which Attorney General William Barr says shows no evidence of conspiracy or obstruction.

The president is claiming the report exonerates him from allegations that his campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election, and now Trump wants to punish his enemies who reported on the nearly two-year investigation, reported Axios.

Trump called for an investigation of his critics and cast himself as a victim within an hour of learning Mueller’s findings.

“Aides say Trump plans to … call for organizations to fire members of the media and former government officials who he believes made false accusations about him,” the Washington Post reported.

Barr’s summary shows that Mueller did not find evidence that anyone in the Trump campaign or its associates conspired or coordinated with the Russian government, and Mueller wrote that he did not conclude Trump committed a crime, but he made clear his findings did not exonerate the president.

The report represents a huge political win for the president, who will use Mueller’s findings to cast doubt on investigations by House Democrats, and Trump’s allies are already calling for investigations of the investigators.

Published

on

On Monday, the Daily Beast reported that the new 007 -- the special agent in the James Bond series -- will be portrayed by the black actress Lashana Lynch.

Perhaps the most prominent right-winger to voice his displeasure was Ben Shapiro, who complained that it didn't make sense for Bond to be a woman because of the character's signature seduction moves.

"Bond is about the guns and the girls," Shapiro said, noting that a woman in a seductive role was not realistic.

Published

Federal investigators have been able to “dramatically expand” their investigation into financier and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein as prosecutors bring sex trafficking charges against him, Assistant U.S. Attorney Alex Rossmiller said in court on Monday.

The government revealed the expansion of the case at the day’s bail hearing. In searching the defendant’s house, investigators found an old passport with Epstein picture and a fake name that listed Saudi Arabia as the location of his residence, the prosecutor said.

The judge was surprised at this revelation, NBC News reported, asking the attorney, “Say again?”

Will Hurd becomes first GOP lawmaker to condemn Trump’s ‘racist and xenophobic’ attacks on Dems

Published

on

Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX) on Monday became the first Republican lawmaker to unequivocally condemn President Donald Trump's racist attacks against four Democratic lawmakers.

When asked by CNN's Christiane Amanpour about Trump's weekend tweets, in which he told Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) to “go back” to their countries despite the fact that all four are American citizens, Hurd did not hold back on repudiating the president's statements.

"Those tweets are racist, and xenophobic," he said. "They’re also inaccurate. The four women he’s referring to are actually citizens of the United States."
