Mueller investigation ‘was a coup’ against the US: Trump spins out of control in rambling interview

Published

on

On Thursday night, President Donald Trump called in to Fox News host Sean Hannity’s show, rambling nonsensically and conspiratorially about all his favorite subjects.

He lashed out at Hillary Clinton, of course, somehow blaming her for the fact that many of campaign aides broke the law — often as part of his own cover-up of ties to Russia.

“She’s destroying the lives of people that were on our campaign,” he said. “She’s destroyed their lives.”

He also criticized the conditions under which she was interviewed by the FBI during the email investigation — particularly hypocritical, given that he never sat down for a sworn interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

He declared, absurdly, that the Mueller probe was a plot to oust him — even though there has been copious public evidence showing the legitimate grounds for the investigation.

“This was a coup,” he said. “This was an attempted overthrow of the United States government.”

“My main takeaway from Trump’s 45-minute interview with Hannity is that I am less confident than ever before that we will have a free and fair election next year,” said Vox reporter Aaron Rupar.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Tuesday issued an unusual defense of President Donald Trump's racist remarks against four Democratic congresswomen by comparing the president to an internet troll.

According to Politico reporter Burgess Everett, Cruz deflected criticism of Trump's racist tweets against Reps. Rashiba Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) by arguing that "lefties on Twitter every day" tell him to "go back" to Canada, where he was born in 1970.

Published

on

US senators Tuesday questioned whether Facebook can be trusted with a massive financial responsibility at the first public hearing on its plan for a global digital currency called Libra.

The lawmakers added to criticism of the plan unveiled by Facebook last month with two dozen partners on the digital coin, touted as a way to lower costs and facilitate cross-border money transfers.

David Marcus, Facebook's executive heading the digital coin effort, defended the plan during more than two hours at a Senate Banking Committee hearing on Libra, pledging to comply with all regulations to thwart money laundering and criminal activity.

Mitch McConnell: AOC started Trump’s racist tweets by calling detention centers ‘concentration camps’

Published

on

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Tuesday refused to condemn the President of the United States for sending racist tweets in which he told four non-white congresswomen to "go back" to their countries of origin.

McConnell spoke on the matter at a press conference, but he did not explicitly rebuke President Donald Trump.

"There's been a lot of discussion about the events of the last couple days, I'd like to address it myself," McConnell volunteered. "I think there's been a consensus that political rhetoric has really gotten way way overheated all across the political spectrum."
