‘A child screaming out in anger’: Trump mocked for wide-ranging rant declaring ‘presidential harassment!’

Published

on

President Donald Trump kicked off Tuesday with a wide-ranging rant focused on Monday’s House hearing highlighting the Mueller report.

Trump’s rambling and incoherent tweets made little sense. For example, this one in which he may or may not be quoting Fox News, saying, “The Greatest Witch Hunt of all time continues. All crimes were by the other side, but the Committee refuses to even take a look. Deleting 33,000 Emails is the real Obstruction – and much more!”

Or this thread, in which Trump appears to be quoting his top defender, Sen. Lindsey Graham.


Googling the quotes brings up only Trump’s tweets, so it’s unclear if these are actual quotes.

"The group that gathered at Butowsky’s home included a conspiracy theorist, a Fox reporter fighting for her career, a former private intelligence contractor married to star journalist Lara Logan, and a Democratic PR operative who lost his business in the face of sexual assault allegations."

The host interviewed David Enrich, finance editor at The New York Times, about his forthcoming book Dark Towers: Deutsche Bank, Donald Trump, and an Epic Trail of Destruction.

Congress still has one big tool left to rein in Trump’s corruption: Oversight Committee Democrat

Published

Senate Republicans may have managed to quash the impeachment trial without calling forth any new witnesses or seriously considering the evidence against President Donald Trump. And the president may feel vindicated and largely invulnerable as a result.

But, Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL) told CNN's Anderson Cooper on Monday, that doesn't mean Democrats don't have one last big play to rein in the president's abuses of power. They can use the first and strongest authority delegated to them: the power of the purse.
