Trump again freely admits he was trying to get Ukraine to dig up dirt on Biden – which is ‘plainly illegal’

Published

on

Amid a rapid-fire Monday morning  tweetstorm President Donald Trump freely admitted once again that he has been trying to get Ukraine to dig up dirt on his top political opponent, Joe Biden, and the former vice president’s son, Hunter. Using his office to try to get a foreign power to help him politically is not only an abuse of power, experts say it is “almost certainly” or even “plainly” illegal – and impeachable.

“Very simple!” Trump tweeted. “I was looking for Corruption and also why Germany, France and others in the European Union don’t do more for Ukraine. Why is it always the USA that does so much and puts up so much money for Ukraine and other countries? By the way, the Bidens were corrupt!”

The Daily Beast’s Sam Stein makes Trump’s intentions clear:

Meanwhile, literally not one word of Trump’s tweet is true.

Trump not only has not been “looking for Corruption” in Ukraine, he has not been looking for it anywhere. If anything, he has turned a blind eye to it, or in the case of Russia, welcomed it.

As for his false suggestion the US spends more money on Ukraine than EU countries, that too is false. The EU has spent billions on Ukraine.

Political commentator Bob Cesca:

And as far as the Bidens being “corrupt,” again, not a shred of proof that is correct. Even if it were, it is not Trump’s job to investigate. It would be the DOJ’s, which has established protocols to deal with corruption abroad.

“You have people — Jewish people — and they are great people and they don’t love Israel enough," Trump said -- a comment that Rubin says uses American Jews "as whipping boys for insufficient loyalty to him and his policies."

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson defends his ‘right’ to ‘speak up more strongly against gays in the military’

Published

on

The UK's Conservative Party Prime Minister Boris Johnson once attacked gay people for serving in their country's armed forces, called LGBTQ people “tank-topped bum boys,” and even supported a claim from foreign dictator Robert Mugabe that the opposing British Labour Party was composed of “gay gangsters.”

“Across the country, there are many Tories who wish their party leadership would speak up more strongly against, say, gays in the military,” Johnson said. “They are, of course, right.”

Estranged Republican horrified her former party thinks Trump is better than Lincoln

Published

on

Estranged former Republican Ashley Pratte found herself aghast by a recent poll showing a majority of GOP voters now rate President Donald Trump more favorably than Abraham Lincoln.

Writing for NBC News, Pratte argued that Lincoln, widely considered by historians to be one of America's greatest presidents, was the polar opposite of Trump.

"Trump’s years in office have been full of nepotism, scandal, profiting from his position as president and now he is about to become the third-ever president to be impeached," she argued. "So how can those same Republicans now honestly believe that Trump has, in any way, been a good president, let alone one of the best?"
