‘Just the tip of the iceberg’: Congressman says new docs only scratch the surface of Trump’s secrets from the public

Published

On MSNBC Tuesday, Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL) suggested that the damning new documents from indicted Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas are only the beginning of what President Donald Trump and his associates have concealed about their Ukraine operation.

“There’s, like, possible smoking gun stuff lying all over the place. Can you in the Intelligence Committee get your hands on it?” asked host Chris Hayes.

“Well, it’s a great question, but what’s interesting to me about this is that we are seeing a lot of information come to us voluntarily through Lev Parnas, but also through Freedom of Information Act requests and what they point out to us is that, you know, this is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of the information that the White House is concealing from us,” said Krishnamoorthi. “Article 2 of the articles of impeachment talk about obstructing this congressional investigation, and I think that what we’re seeing tonight is proof positive that such obstruction actually occurred.”

White House adviser warned colleagues Nancy Pelosi would eventually bring Trump down: ‘She’s an assassin’

Published

on

In an excerpt from the Washington Post's Phil Rucker and Carol Leonnig new book "A Very Stable Genius," Axios reports that former Donald Trump adviser Steve Bannon predicted that now-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would eventually attempt to bring the president down one way or the other.

According to the book, " The night of January 23 [2017], the first Monday of his presidency, Trump came face?to?face with House and Senate leaders from both parties at a White House reception ... At a long table in the State Dining Room, Steve Bannon ... could not stop looking at Nancy Pelosi..."

"Pelosi assumed Trump would open the conversation on a unifying note, such as by quoting the Founding Fathers or the Bible. Instead, the new president began with a lie: 'You know, I won the popular vote.' He claimed that there had been widespread fraud, with three to five million illegal votes for Clinton. Pelosi interjected. 'Well, Mr. President, that’s not true,' she said. 'There’s no evidence to support what you just said, and if we’re going to work together, we have to stipulate to a certain set of facts.'"

Published

on

President Donald Trump erupted during a briefing intended to teach him the basic fundamentals of U.S. foreign policy -- and essentially ended any hope that he would ever learn them.

Six months into his presidency, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, Director of the National Economic Council Gary Cohn and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson were frustrated and alarmed by the gaps in Trump's knowledge of world affairs, and they scheduled a Pentagon briefing to catch him up, reported the Washington Post.

Rick Santorum flattened by CNN’s Berman after calling Parnas bombshell revelations ‘extraneous’ to impeachment

Published

on

Rick Santorum and CNN's John Berman got into a frantic back-and-forth on Friday morning after the former Republican senator attempted to dismiss the revelations by former Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas as something that should not be submitted as evidence in the impeachment trial of Donald Trump.

Discussing the Senate trial expected to start next week, Santorum said the only testimony and witnesses that should be allowed are ones that came up in the earlier House hearings.

"The House's responsibility to bring to us a case," Santorum stated. "They're the one who is said these are offenses that are worthy of the president being removed from office; here is the record, here are the charges. The Senate didn't impeach, the House did, so we are going to look at the record the House presented us. We're going to look at the witnesses and say are there are questions that we have for the people that brought this case forward and relied on these witnesses and look at their testimony."
