Florida reporter drops new bombshell on Epstein while blasting resigning Acosta

Published

on

Following the abrupt resignation of Labor Secretary Alex Acosta on Friday morning after being dogged by accusations of giving a sweetheart deal to accused child trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, MSNBC was able to get the Miami Herald reporter whose dogged pursuit of the truth led to the arrest on Epstein again on the phone.

Speaking with host Stephanie Ruhle, the Herald’s Julie K. Brown said she was surprised — but not that surprised.

“I’m surprised it happened this fast,” Brown conceded, before adding, “But, you know, that press conference that he gave the other day didn’t do him any good. Practically everything that he said at that conference was either inaccurate or twisted in some ways to benefit him; to make him look good. In reality, there is nothing here that makes him look good. He dropped the ball on this case.”

She then added, ‘We had been preparing to do a fact-check story tomorrow that would essentially use documents to show everything he said was not true.”

Brown then dropped some new news about Epstein, telling the MSNBC host, “I know for a fact there’s journalists all over the world covering this story now — he [Epstein] had been recruiting in other countries. I’m sure there will be more information coming out not only about his operation, but there were a lot of employees and other people, big people who, if they weren’t involved in the operation, they knew about the operation.”

“It’s time for them to come clean on this,” she added. “I know they were forced to sign nondisclosure agreements. but it is time they step up.”

John Heilemann was interviewed by Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC's "The Last Word."

"The attorney general, from the moment he walked into this job, has behaved in a -- as a ruthless, relentless political hack and a thug and who has behaved not as attorney general of the United States," Heilemann said.

"He made a travesty of the Mueller report and continues to lie on Donald Trump's behalf at every opportunity," he added.

Trump welcomed Russia’s Sergey Lavrov to the White House — to humiliate us all

Published

on

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.

United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal

Published

on

The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.

However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

In reality, it is the second time the three countries have triumphantly announced the conclusion of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the deal meant to replace the 25-year-old NAFTA, which President Donald Trump complains has been "a disaster" for the US.
