‘Kiss of death’: Trump’s White House lawyer quits

Published

on

President Donald Trump has lost another member of his legal team.

Emmet Flood, who was serving as special counsel to the president, after working as interim White House counsel, will be leaving the administration in two weeks, Trump announced on Twitter.

“Emmet Flood, who came to the White House to help me with the Mueller Report, will be leaving service on June 14th,” Trump announced.

“He has done an outstanding job – no collusion, no obstruction,” Trump argued, despite the fact that obstruction was extensively documented by special counsel Robert Mueller.

“Case closed,” Trump argued, despite ongoing investigations by five House committees, the Southern District of New York and the New York attorney general.

“Emmet is my friend, and I thank him for the great job he has done,” Trump added.

Joe Lockhart, who served as Bill Clinton’s White House press secretary during impeachment, offered his analysis of the situation.

“This is the kiss of death for anyone’s career going forward,” Lockhart said. “If you’re a lawyer and you pleased Donald Trump, you did something unethical.”

“It all comes out in the end,” Lockhart predicted.

Donald Trump Jr. thinks his father has been treated worse than any human in American history -- including slaves, Native Americans and presidents who have been assassinated while in office.

After President Donald Trump told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos that "there's never been a time in the history of our country where somebody was so mistreated as I have been," Trump Jr. jumped on Twitter to defend his father and simply said that "he's right."

He’s right. https://t.co/ZRlenHkXrq

Trump drowned in ‘heavy metal jokes’ after trying to tag Dem challengers as ‘motley crew’

Published

on

President Donald Trump trotted out a new catchphrase to mock the field of Democratic presidential candidates, but it didn't get quite the reaction he may have hoped.

The president insisted polls looked good for his re-election chances, despite leaked internal polling that says otherwise, and tried to tag his potential 2020 challengers as a "motley crew."

Only Fake Polls show us behind the Motley Crew. We are looking really good, but it is far too early to be focused on that. Much work to do! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

Trump betting he can win re-election by spinning new conspiracy theories to explain investigations: report

Published

on

Special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into President Donald Trump's association with Russian efforts to undermine the 2016 presidential election may be over. But that does not mean the president is free from oversight.

According to Politico, Trump is still facing 15 civil and criminal probes by at least nine federal, state, and municipal agencies on everything from obstruction of justice to campaign finance violations to using his office to enrich his family and businesses. But president is not bothered by these investigations — or at least, he believes that he can use them to his political advantage.
