Conservative columnist tells FBI Director Chris Wray to consider resigning over Trump’s latest attack

Published

President Donald Trump blasted the FBI in an interview with ABC host George Stephanopoulos Wednesday. It was those attacks that prompted conservative columnist Max Boot to suggest the FBI’s Director Christopher Wray should consider resigning over.

“The FBI director says that’s what should happen,” said Stephanopoulos after Trump attacked the idea as absurd.

“Well, the FBI is wrong!” the president said sharply.

“He’s angry there, clearly,” said CNN host Don Lemon during a panel discussion. “But, come on, the FBI director is wrong?”

“This is nuts,” said Washington Post columnist Max Boot. “It’s an issue that Chris Wray needs to consider resigning over. The president is basically saying ‘I will disregard the FBI and commit illegal acts.’ That is extremely alarming behavior. And by the way, Don, can you imagine what Donald Trump would say?”

“The Attorney general also agrees with the FBI director,” Lemon cut in to say.

“Absolutely! This is the law,” replied Boot. “There is no doubt that this is the law, and this is the oath that the president takes which he is now violating. Can you imagine what Trump would say if Joe Biden came out and said ‘Hey, Iran, if you have information on Trump please share it with me.’ Do you think Trump would be saying ‘That’s okay,’ or would he be saying ‘That’s treason?’ ”

Ex-GOP rep. says Republican buddies will flip on Trump: ‘They do believe he’s a moron’

Published

Former Republican Congressman Joe Walsh predicted this week that lawmakers from his own party will eventually support the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

"I think he knows it’s coming," Walsh told CNN's Brianna Keilar following the president's remarks to reporters. "He sounded like a frightened baby right there."

According to Walsh, "even Republicans" are embarrassed by Trump's failed effort to hold the G7 summit at his Miami Doral resort.

"It’s really important to note, I need to say this, Republicans don’t like him," Walsh explained. "Republicans in Congress. They don’t like him, they don’t fear him, they don’t respect him. They do believe he’s incompetent, they do believe he’s a moron."

‘This is an ethical train wreck!’ Ex-GOP lawmaker gets demolished for defending Trump’s shameless corruption

Published

on

Former Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) on Monday went down in flames after he tried to defend President Donald Trump's widely criticized gambit to host next year's G7 summit at his own golf course in Doral, Florida.

Even though Duffy acknowledged that the optics surrounding the president's decision to award his own business a government contract to host the G7 were poor, he said that he didn't believe there was anything ethically wrong with the initiative. He also tried to claim that Trump has somehow been victimized by getting elected to be the most powerful man in the world.

"Donald Trump doesn't take a salary," he said. "He gives his money away. His businesses have lost business, you know, Ivanka Trump has lost her line of shoes at Nordstrom. He's lost his line of clothing at Macy's!"

Ex-Trump staffer: Mulvaney needs to resign and get himself a good lawyer

Published

on

Appearing on CNN's "New Day," former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci suggested acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney resign immediately and lawyer up due to his complicity in Donald Trump's Ukraine phone call seeking dirt on Joe Biden.

Ostensibly brought on to talk about his plan to attempt to draft Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) to run against Donald Trump for the 2020 Republican presidential nomination, Scaramucci -- who host John Berman jokingly noted only lasted 11 days in his White House job -- admitted that he was a fan of Mulvaney, but that he has put himself in a bad place.
