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.

"It took us eight months to get one court decision," Schiff said, referring to the court decision that former White House counsel Don McGahn does not have absolute right to avoid testifying before Congress.

From the outset, Attorney General William Barr attacked the findings of Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz debunking GOP conspiracy theories about the FBI "spying" on President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign. But he was also joined by U.S. Attorney John Durham, a longtime career official in the Justice Department whom Barr had tapped to run a parallel investigation — even though Durham, according to recent reports, cannot find criminal misconduct to charge.

Published

President Donald Trump's allies are still trying to figure out why Rudy Giuliani hired a 20-year-old Instagram personality as his director of communications.

The president's personal attorney travels everywhere, including Ukraine, with Christianné Allen, a former teenage Trump campaign volunteer who has served since September as his media strategist and technology consultant, reported Politico.

“Nobody can figure out who the eff she is or how she got in there,” a friend of Giuliani told the website's Daniel Lippman.
