Sally Yates reveals Trump’s disturbing strategy behind publicly admitting his crimes

Published

on

Former deputy attorney general Sally Yates warned that President Donald Trump was trying to desensitize the public to his wrongdoing by publicly admitting to crimes.

Yates, who was pushed out of the Justice Department for alerting the White House that then-national security adviser Michael Flynn could potentially be compromised, called out the president as a danger to democracy.

“After being caught secretly strong arming Ukraine, POTUS is trying to hypnotize the American people into believing it can’t be wrong if he says it out loud,” Yates tweeted. “And if he actually thinks he has the ‘absolute right’ to sic foreign powers on political rivals, he’s even more dangerous.”

Yates broke her relative Twitter silence — she tweets about twice a month — in response to Trump’s claim that he had a “duty” to ask foreign governments to target his political rivals, hours after publicly asking China and Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden.

“As the President of the United States, I have an absolute right, perhaps even a duty, to investigate, or have investigated, CORRUPTION, and that would include asking, or suggesting, other Countries to help us out!” the president tweeted late Thursday.

Published

Faced with a ticket likely headed by an unpopular president and watching the Democrats rake in campaign cash ahead of the 2020 election, the Republican Party is conceding they will not win back the House by reclaiming seats they lost in the so-called 2018 "blue wave" election.

According to a report from Politico, Democratic candidates have been stockpiling massive amounts of cash to wage war in what is expected to be a high turnout election with Donald Trump as the face of the Republican Party and seats that the GOP thought they might have a shot at now appearing unattainable.
