Trump busted for ‘ludicrous’ lie to UK family whose son was killed by American official’s wife

Published

on

President Donald Trump last week told his political ally Nigel Farage that unnamed lawyers were to blame for an aborted meeting between the wife of an American diplomat and the family of a British teenager whom she killed while driving on the wrong side of the road.

However, a spokesman for the family now tells CNN’s Daniel Dale that Trump’s attempt to blame lawyers to the failed meeting attempt is nothing more than a “lie.”

Last month, Trump drew headlines when he invited the family of the late British teen Harry Dunn to meet with Anne Sacoolas, the wife of an American official who fatally struck the 19-year-old’s motorcycle this past August. The Dunn family spokesman now tells Dale that they backed out of the meeting on their own and that no lawyers were involved in that decision

“Dunn spokesman Seiger says a White House aide called him and asked the family to come meet with a ‘senior government official’ who turned out to be Trump,” Dale reports. “On the train from NY, Seiger says, they talked about how maybe Sacoolas would be there, but thought the idea was ‘ludicrous.’ Seiger described Trump’s attempt to broker a meeting as an ambush — Trump surprised them by telling them that Sacoolas was in the next room. Seiger said he looked at Dunn’s parents, “who were terrified,” and told Trump no, this wasn’t the time or place for a meeting.”

Conservative columnist Eli Lake thinks that House Republicans may have done a good job of defending President Donald Trump during Wednesday's opening impeachment hearings -- but he also thinks they undermined his chances of winning the 2020 election.

In his latest Bloomberg column, Lake argues that Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) made a smart argument in favor of not impeaching the president: Namely, that his attempt to extort Ukraine into investigating former Vice President Joe Biden fell apart before it could be fully executed.

Published

on

Republicans suffered a major blow in Kentucky after Gov. Matt Bevin, a firm ally of President Donald Trump, was defeated by Democratic state Attorney General Andy Beshear — despite the president's efforts to help the GOP, culminating in a massive rally in Lexington on the eve of the election.

Now, according to Politico, GOP strategists are worried that a similar outcome could happen in Louisiana, where conservative Democrat John Bel Edwards will stand for re-election on Saturday against Trump-loving businessman Eddie Rispone.
