MSNBC guest appalled by Trump’s new Ukraine scandal: ‘As grave a moment as we have experienced’

Published

An anonymous intelligence official submitted a complaint to their agency’s inspector general about President Donald Trump’s conduct with a foreign leader.

Little is known at this point, but sources told the New York Times that it’s most likely related to Ukraine. Earlier in the year, the president’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani traveled to Ukraine to dig up dirt on Joe Biden’s son Hunter.

The president shot back on Twitter, railing against the intelligence community.

On MSNBC Friday, columnist Ruth Marcus weighed in on the gravity of the situation.

“This feels to me, and we’ve had a lot of scary moments during the Trump presidency, but as grave a moment, as grave a constitutional moment as we have experienced during this presidency, both in terms of the potential for conduct by the president that would be extraordinarily damaging to his own presidency and the interests of the United States, and in terms of the potential showdown between the — or not showdown, between the Congress and the President,” Marcus said.

“And for the president to prevent the information from this whistleblower from going forward and for Congress, and I include the Republican majority Senate, to accede to that, I think under these really dangerous and, you know, questionable circumstances, would be a terrible dereliction of duty.”

The problem is that Republicans want to call people that weren't even involved in Trump's obstructions of Congress. Republicans want to call Vice President Joe Biden and his son, there are likely some Republicans who want to call Hillary Clinton to talk about Benghazi again, and they'll likely search for reasons they can randomly call Democratic officials in Congress, who also had nothing to do with Trump's actions.

Published

President Donald Trump is scheduled to submit his second Middle East peace plan after the first one senior son-in-law Jared Kushner came up with didn't go over very well.

"We will get this done," Trump claimed in May 2017.

“We'll start a process which hopefully will lead to peace,” Trump said. “Over the course of my lifetime, I've always heard that perhaps the toughest deal to make is the deal between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Let's see if we can prove them wrong, okay?”

Rage-filled Trump has crippled his presidency because he can’t let go of a grudge no matter how small: report

Published

on

According to a report in Politico, many of Donald Trump's problems are the direct result of his inability to get over the smallest of slights leading him to make poor decisions because he can't see his way to let go of a grudge.

The report notes, "Whether in the privacy of his clubs or out on the campaign trail, the president can’t help but hold onto a grudge. Even as Trump heads into an election year with a record that he claims ranks him among the best presidents of all time, political grievances continue to drive everything from policy decisions to rally speeches to some of the biggest scandals of his presidency — including his impeachment."
