Mueller colleague says Trump will hate full Russia report: It will ‘look more like obstruction’

Published

on

At least one Lawyer who had experience with special counsel Robert Mueller anticipated that the full report will show most Americans President Donald Trump obstructed justice more than what the law actually demands.

Axios reported some of the claims that Trump has been fully exonerated might not be what Americans see when the report is released.

One lawyer who has dealt with the Mueller team in the past, told Axios, “My guess is, it’s probably going to be when it’s put all together by Mueller’s team, it’s going to look more like obstruction to the casual eye than it might be [legal].”

The White House has already been briefed on the report, and after, Trump changed his tune from wanting to release it to say it was a waste of time and people should move on. The report should be released this week, but will have redactions.

Mueller’s report is nearly 400 pages long and has not been released yet to anyone. Some legal scholars have noted that it doesn’t generally take 400 pages to say someone is innocent.

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said that he has prepared a 140-page counter-report to the Mueller findings. Giuliani has not seen the report, however, so it’s unclear how he was able to craft 140 pages responding to a report that he hasn’t read.

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.

The announcement set off predictably racist and sexist reactions.

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.

REVEALED: The government just ‘dramatically’ expanded its investigation of Jeffrey Epstein

Published

on

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."
