President Donald Trump on Monday decided to use his Oval Office appearance with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as an opportunity lob angry threats at the “evil people” who investigated whether his campaign had colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election.
“There are a lot people out there that have done some very, very evil things, very bad things, I would say treasonous things, against our country,” a clearly angry Trump said. “Hopefully the people that have done such harm to our country — we’ve gone through a period of really bad things happening — those people will certainly be looked at.”
“I have been looking at them for a long time and I’m saying, ‘why haven’t they been looked at?'” Trump continued ominously. “They lied to Congress. Many of them, you know who they are. They’ve done so many evil things.”
“I love this country as much as I can love anything, my family, my country, my God,” said the thrice-married president whose personal attorney paid hush money to his mistresses. “What they did, it was a false narrative, it was a terrible thing.”

There are enough votes to impeach Trump if it comes to the floor: CNN’s April Ryan quotes congressman
On Wednesday, the House voted 332 to 95 to table articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump brought forth by Rep. Al Green (D-TX). Democrats were divided, with 137 members agreeing to table the resolution. All 194 Republicans and independent Justin Amash also voted to do so.
But despite the resounding defeat for Green's measure, one congressman told CNN commentator and American Urban Radio Network director April Ryan that while many Democrats want to continue with investigations for the time being, he believes there would be enough votes to pass it if it actually made it to the floor.
Pelosi slaps Trump with a backhanded compliment: ‘He’s a great distractor — that’s what this is about’
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Wednesday accused President Donald Trump of making a racist attack on four U.S. congresswomen to distract from failures in his administration.
At a press conference, Pelosi told the reporters that lawmakers were "gentle" in condemning only Trump's tweets as "racist" in a recent vote.
"We weren't saying he is racist," she explained. "We were saying that the words that he used were racist."
"We all know the argument that could be made against us in terms of our philosophy, in terms of our priorities and the rest," Pelosi said. "And the president knows there are arguments that could be made against him and, therefore, he wants to distract from them."
‘You have to think about it?’ Kris Kobach goes down in epic flames when CNN’s Cuomo asks if he’d vote for a racist
Kris Kobach went down in flames going up against CNN host Chris Cuomo on Tuesday, as the Kansas Republican attempted to "explain" what President Donald Trump "really said" about the four congresswomen of color he attacked Sunday.
Cuomo read Trump's quotes aloud asking if they were racist.
"Now you're editorializing it," Kobach said. "The problem with Twitter, it's 140 characters and since it's so vague--"
As a point of fact, Trump used three tweets to say what he said about the women, not editing it down to 280 characters.
"He said the words," Cuomo fact-checked.
