Democrats ‘stunned’ by revelations in Mueller letter — and they’re seriously considering impeachment: WaPo reporter

Published

on

The Washington Post‘s Robert Costa told MSNBC Wednesday that Democrats were “stunned” by Robert Mueller’s letter calling out Attorney General William Barr for mischaracterizing the findings of the Russia probe — and said that “privately” they were considering all avenues of redress, including impeachment.

“What I’m hearing is that Democrats are stunned by what they saw in the Mueller letter, it’s something they were not aware of,” said Costa. “Are they calling for his impeachment yet? No. But privately and now some publicly some senators, top Democrats in the party, are saying we can’t rule out anything at this point.”

“They have to hear from the attorney general,” he went on. “They don’t just want to hear answers about how he handled the report, they want reassurances about his conduct about his integrity. Expect this to be a very tough hearing.”

Costa added that politics was a consideration as well.

“Some of the people sitting up there, they’re running for the White House and have to impress their party,” he noted. “They know tough shots are sometimes the way to do so.”

‘Self-centered ego’: John Brennan unleashes on Trump for taking credit for military successes with ISIS

Published

on

Former CIA Director John Brennan joined with MSNBC host Chris Jansing in expressing outrage over President Donald Trump proclaiming he captured ISIS.

Jansing cited reports saying the president attacked former Defense Secretary James Mattis and said, "I captured ISIS."

"No reported mention of service members," Jansing said about Trump's rant. "I cannot remember a president who did not give credit to the men and women who fought, who bled, who risked their lives and in too many cases always, gave their lives, made the ultimate sacrifice, and then he exits risking the resurgence of ISIS. What does it say to the men and women of the military who have committed their professional lives to this -- to keeping America safe?"

The View’s Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain wallop Trump’s ‘sexist’ outburst at Pelosi: ‘Grow a pair, man!’

"The View" co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain ganged up on President Donald Trump for horrifically botching the military operation in Syria, and then throwing a tantrum when Republicans rebuked him.

Trump has enjoyed nearly slavish devotion from his congressional GOP allies, but House Speaker Nancy Pelsoi said the president had a "meltdown" during a White House meeting after the House voted to condemn his military withdrawal and abandonment of the Kurds.

"His problem right now too is that social media, everyone can see the atrocities that are happening right now in Syria with the Kurds," McCain said. "It's all over social media, and I have been apoplectic for a week and a half now, and everything we said was going to happen is happening. Our allies are being slaughtered."

‘Serious lack of discernment’: Evangelical leaders slammed for promoting book by Trump-loving ‘charlatan’

Published

on

Paula White, the former pastor of New Destiny Christian Center-turned spiritual adviser to President Trump, has a new book out titled, Something Greater: Finding Triumph Over Trials. While some prominent evangelicals are helping her promote the book, there's a separate contingent of preachers and religious leaders who think White is a charlatan, and they're making their thoughts known.

According to some, White is a proponent of the "Prosperity Gospel," which contends that if one consistently donates to churches and religious causes, they'll be rewarded by God with an abundance of material wealth. The Prosperity Gospel has caused a rift within religious communities, and evangelical leaders who've endorsed White's book are getting some pushback, as The Christian Post points out.
