Ex-Republican ‘disgusted’ at GOP response to Mueller’s report

Published

on

On Monday, conservative writer Max Boot slammed the GOP over their collective response to special counsel Robert Mueller’s report in a column for The Washington Post. 

He said that the reaction from Republicans was “dishonorable and dishonest.”

“I am not remotely surprised by the party’s dishonorable and dishonest reaction to special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report. But I am nevertheless dismayed and disgusted that a once-great party — to which I belonged for most of my life — could become a handmaiden to foreign attacks on the United States and blatant lawbreaking by the president,” Boot wrote.

Mueller’s nearly 400-page report revealed that Trump did not criminally conspire with Russia, however, left major room to suggest that he might have obstructed justice.

“Mueller uncovered not only extensive connections between the Trump campaign and Russia but also extensive evidence of lying and obstruction of justice by the president,” he said.

He explained that Republicans are absurd for believing that Trump is innocent.

“Yet the president’s cultists reacted as if the special counsel had anointed him as the second coming of “Honest Abe” Lincoln,” he said.

Boot added, “This is how morally bankrupt people talk. If a latter-day Diogenes were wandering around Washington, lamp in hand, looking for an honest Republican — well, he would be in for a looooong walk.”

Democrats mulling revenge against Mitch McConnell over his treatment of Merrick Garland

Published

on

A report from Politico indicates that there is a battle within the Democratic Party on how much power they will exert placing judges on federal benches should they retake the White House in 2020.

Citing the way that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) held open the Supreme Court seat that was supposed to be filled by Chief United States Circuit Judge Merrick Garland, only to have Trump nominate conservative jurist Neil Gorsuch to the court, Democrats are considering using hardball tactics of their own.

Trump tweets deranged rant about Mueller and the FBI as hearing draws nearer

Published

on

On Monday, President Donald Trump tweeted an angry invective against former special counsel Robert Mueller, who is slated to testify before the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees on Wednesday, proclaiming once again — falsely — that the report showed "NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION!"

He followed up this outburst with complaints about a litany of villains frequently promoted by Fox News, including the Hillary Clinton campaign and two former FBI agents who were fired after having a affair and who supposedly were biased against him in text messages (though no evidence has ever shown they improperly influenced Mueller's investigation):
