Trump is now openly soliciting foreign intelligence agencies to join the ‘Trump team’ for the 2020 election: Ex-intel officer

Published

On MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” former Navy officer and security expert Malcolm Nance laid into President Donald Trump for saying that he’d happily accept campaign dirt from hostile foreign powers, just months after the conclusion of the two-year-long federal investigation into Russia’s efforts to sabotage the 2016 presidential election.

“Isn’t it the case that not just Russians but any foreign government fully understands that … Russia got away with attacking our election last time, what you wrote about in two books, and that they ought to just try it again at least?” asked host Joy Reid. “Because this president is open to it and his attorney general is open to it.”

“Absolutely,” said Nance. “What you saw Donald Trump do the other day … is he confessed to soliciting a crime. He decided that in his mind — and this showed his mindset and why he didn’t talk to Robert Mueller. He would have arrogantly confessed that in his mind, these crimes are not crimes, therefore he can do them.”

“What’s happened now is he has opened the Pandora’s Box,” warned Nance. “Not just foreign intelligence agencies, political organizations from around the world, private individuals, have now all been solicited to come to the Trump team and to bring any dirt that they can find, whether true or not, about Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, anybody else, and then give it to them. And there will be no repercussions and most likely there will be rewards if Trump wins another election.”

“That’s exactly what he has done there,” said Nance. “He has solicited a crime.”

‘Your hair is fabricated’: Trump blasted as a ‘dictator desperate to hold onto power’ after his ‘admission of guilt’ tweet

Published

President Donald Trump was clearly fixated on the impeachment inquiry, with his official Twitter account blasting out a dozen different attacks into his administration's solicitation of foreign election interference.

Trump started his morning on Twitter with a traditional Veterans' Day welcome but quickly began tweeting about the vaping industry, the election loss by Gov. Matt Bevin (R-KY), one day after a Trump rally and who won the Schwab Cup golf tournament.

But impeachment was clearly his obsession on Monday.

Shifty Adam Schiff will only release doctored transcripts. We haven’t even seen the documents and are restricted from (get this) having a lawyer. Republicans should put out their own transcripts! Schiff must testify as to why he MADE UP a statement from me, and read it to all!

‘Vote my conscience on Donald J Trump’: Neil Young seeking US citizenship to vote in 2020 but marijuana use causes problems

Published

on

Canadian music legend Neil Young says he has applied for US citizenship to be able to vote next year, but his use of marijuana is complicating things.

Young, who is 73, said on his website Friday that he had managed to pass a citizenship exam in which he answered honestly the questions posed to him.

He said he has to undergo another test because he smokes pot.

US authorities said in April that people seeking citizenship may not be involved in "certain marijuana related activities" even if even if they are legal in the state where they live or their country of origin, the singer-song writer wrote.
