Intel Democrat scorches ‘toddler’ Trump for lying about his relationship with Wikileaks

Published

on

On Thursday, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) and 2020 presidential candidate slammed President Donald Trump after he lied about his knowledge of Wikileaks.

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange was arrested after being held in the Ecuadoran embassy in London for about seven years.

Trump falsely denied knowing anything about Wikileaks.

“I know nothing about Wikileaks. It’s not my thing,” Trump told reports.

Swalwell said that he was acting like a lying “toddler.”

“I have no sympathy for Mr. Assange with respect to what he did. But what is really frustrating is that the president of the United States, when approached about this arrest, his reaction is what you would expect from my toddler when I find that he colored on the walls,” Swalwell told CNN’s Brianna Keilar.

“He said ‘I don’t know nothing about nothing’ essentially. He doesn’t commend the Department of Justice for working so hard on this case. Doesn’t commend the British for working with us to extradite Mr. Assange. Instead, he says something completely unbelievable that he doesn’t know anything about Wikileaks when we know for a year and a half all he did was praise Wikileaks,” he said.

Trump’s claim impeachment ‘nullifies’ 2016 election blown up in new House Judiciary Committee report

Published

on

On Saturday, the House Judiciary Committee released their report outlining the offenses committed by President Donald Trump, and the legal framework for impeachment — which clears the way for Congress to write and approve articles of impeachment against him.

One of the key issues examined by the report is the claim, repeatedly made by the president and his supporters, that impeachment would "nullify" the 2016 presidential election and the popular will — which is already a weak claim given that Trump never won the popular vote, and that impeaching Trump would still install Mike Pence as president. But the report more broadly rejects the entire claim that an election result immunizes a president from punishment for official misconduct.

READ IT: House Judiciary Committee releases report defining Trump impeachable offenses

Published

on

On Saturday, the House Judiciary Committee released a report outlining the impeachable acts committed by President Donald Trump.

"Our President holds the ultimate public trust," said the report, titled "Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment," in its introduction. "A President faithful only to himself—who will sell out democracy and national security for his own personal advantage—is a danger to every American. Indeed, he threatens America itself."

The report clarifies the procedures for impeachment, analyzes whether president can be "impeached for abuse of executive powers," and "whether it is preferable to await the next election when a President has sought to corrupt that very same election."

Devin Nunes likely under federal investigation over foreign contacts after Parnas phone call revelation: ex-FBI official

Published

on

On MSNBC's "AM Joy," former FBI Assistant Director for Counterintelligence Frank Figliuzzi speculated that Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) may already be under FBI investigation for his secret calls with indicted Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas.

"What do you make of the fact that the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, who participated in the Adam Schiff portion of the impeachment hearings, never said anything to anybody about the fact that he was not just the guy who's sitting on the dais, he was involved in some way with one of the players?" asked host Joy Reid.

"Well, it says a lot on two levels," said Figliuzzi. "It says a lot about Devin Nunes as an individual, his ethics, his integrity, and what he's all about. And then on a larger level, it's just a huge, ironic development that we're hearing all of this about — the Republicans are defending allegations that the president lacks integrity and ethics, and they're sitting there overseeing this and they're not recusing themselves, and they're not saying anything about their colleague, Devin Nunes. So, you know, the hypocrisy is loud and clear here. And eventually when the dust clears, Joy, I wouldn't be surprised if ethics investigations and perhaps even criminal investigations really point the finger at Nunes as someone who should have recused himself and is much deeper into this than we know now."
