‘Fraud and fabrication!’ Trump erupts on Twitter as his former aides deliver bombshell testimony

Published

on

President Donald Trump clearly must see the writing on the wall: the narrowing of options, the polls increasingly supporting impeachment and removal from office, day after day of subpoenaed current and former administration officials being deposed by House investigators, the bipartisan condemnation of his single-handed destruction of decades of U.S. Middle East policy that has led to ethnic cleansing of America’s now-former allies in the war against ISIS, his approval polls sinking, the massive exodus from his administration, and, of course, certain impeachment with odds ever increasing that the Senate will actually convict and remove him from office.

So Trump is responding the only way he knows how: more lies, more threats, more fear-mongering.

Wednesday morning Trump took to Twitter, blasting the “Radical Left Dems,” as he labeled them, and calling for the impeachment of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff. (Members of Congress and Senators cannot be impeached.)

He called all the Democratic 2020 presidential candidates – the top ones polls consistently show beating him by double-digits – “clowns,” while fear-mongering if he loses the election (assuming he’s still in office for that) the U.S. economy “would CRASH, just like in 1929.”

And he claimed “there is NO WAY that any of the Democrat Candidates that we witnessed last night could possibly become President of the United States.” Polls say otherwise.

Trump also falsely claimed a 95% approval rating among Republicans, which is a straight-up, made-up lie.

He also claimed he will win re-election, while Republicans will retain the Senate, and take back the House – something currently considered an impossibility.

If all that weren’t enough, Trump cried about the process of the impeachment inquiry, revealing once again he has zero understanding of how things work. Suggesting he is the Republican Party, he complained, “Republicans are totally deprived of their rights in this Impeachment Witch Hunt. No lawyers, no questions, no transparency!”

The impeachment inquiry is an investigation. He can have all the lawyers he wants during the trial, which is held by the Senate.

“The good news is that the Radical Left Dems have No Case. It is all based on their Fraud and Fabrication!” Trump tweeted.

Every piece of evidence, from his own White House call summary of his conversation with the president of Ukraine, to his admission – on national TV – of committing a crime, to the whistleblowers stepping forward, to the resignations of top-level administration officials, to the reported criminal investigation of his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, and the arrest of Giuliani’s henchmen, and so much more, say otherwise.

Jared Kushner’s ties to Saudis could be fair game if Trump keeps going after Hunter Biden: Dem lawmaker

Published

on

On MSNBC's "AM Joy," Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) laid out the case for impeaching President Donald Trump — and warned of the consequences for Trump's own family at the hands of future presidents if he is allowed to get away with it.

"He abused his power by trying to trade government resources for a political favor, to knock out a political rival in Joe Biden, the guy that he thought would emerge as nominee for 2020," said Castro. "We can't set a precedent where Congress says it's okay for a president to do that, because if we do that then a few things will happen. Number one, it opens the door for Donald Trump to do it again or a future president to do it again. To ask a country to interfere in our elections and knock out a political rival by digging up dirt."

Melania Trump scorched by columnist for standing by president’s Thunberg bullying: ‘Indefensible’

Published

on

In a piece for the Washington Post, columnist Karen Tumulty called out first lady Melania Trump for her statement defending her husband's bullying of 16-year-old environmental activist Greta Thunberg in a fit of jealousy after she was selected Time Magazine's Person of the Year.

Responding to a statement from the White House that stated, “BeBest is the First Lady’s initiative, and she will continue to use it to do all she can to help children. It is no secret that the President and First Lady often communicate differently — as most married couples do. Their son is not an activist who travels the globe giving speeches. He is a 13-year-old who wants and deserves privacy,” Tumulty wasn't having it.

BUSTED: Devin Nunes is hiding how he’s paying for all his frivolous lawsuits — which could land him in more trouble

Published

on

On Saturday, the Fresno Bee dived into a lingering question: How does Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) pay for all the lawsuits he is filing against journalists, satirists, and political critics?

"Nunes, R-Tulare, has filed lawsuits against Twitter, anonymous social media users known as Devin Nunes' Cow and Devin Nunes' Mom, a Republican political strategist, media companies, journalists, progressive watchdog groups, a political research firm that worked for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and a retired farmer in Nunes’ own district," noted the Bee.

These lawsuits were mainly filed in Virginia — a state with very loose laws against so-called "SLAPP suits," or meritless lawsuits intended to drown people in legal expenses in retaliation for expressing political opinions. Nunes was assisted in these suits by Steven Biss, a Virginia attorney, and yet except for the suit against the retired farmer, there is no clear record in Nunes' FEC reports of how he paid for the suits.
