Appearing on MSNBC on Saturday afternoon, former Whole House Communications shop head Anthony Scaramucci gave another preview of former Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s upcoming tell-all book, saying it will expose the “repetitiveness” of the president’s criminality — and that the jailed attorney has documents to back up his claims.
Speaking with host Alex Witt, Scaramucci was asked what other details he could divulge from the book that is scheduled to be released before the election.
Saying the book will expose “rank criminality,” the former aide to the president continued. “Steep, steep immorality backed up by evidence. It is not like Michael is going to say this and the White House is going to discredit him and ‘say he has a problem in the court system and he went to prison.'”
“He is going to back it up with documentary evidence to show the level of illegality, the repetitiveness of the illegality, and I tweeted out earlier this morning that the betrayal to the country is astonishing,” he continued. “So that information originally, unfortunately, he’s done a very good job of over the last three years of capping that information. We are getting to his re-election and all of this information is going to be coming out and Michael’s book will be a very big cornerstone of that.”
“Can I say something?” he added. “If it’s a bunch of lies that he shows up with the documentary evidence that he literally just shows the paperwork behind that, just curious what the White House will say to that.”
A Never-Trump Republican changed her mind — then crumbled when she tried to explain why
In a recent op-ed for the Washington Post, Republican Danielle Pletka declared that despite the fact that she refused to vote for Donald Trump in 2016, she now feels compelled to support him in 2020. The piece quickly caught fire online, inspiring ridicule and sympathy from differing corners and triggering a surprising amount of discussion.
In one sense, it’s hard to see what the big deal was. The Post publishes opinion pieces in support of Trump frequently, and this one was not particularly special. Pletka herself is not a particularly notable figure. Like many op-eds, it was sloppy and unpersuasive, making huge leaps of reasoning and glossing over critical points in the argument. It didn’t take seriously any compelling counterarguments. It was, in other words, a mere display of partisan loyalty from a Republican who would prefer to be inside the tent than outside of it.
Here’s the doomsday scenario in Pennsylvania that could cost Joe Biden the election
On Monday, the Philadelphia Inquirer walked through a potential voter error that could cost Joe Biden Pennsylvania — the exclusion of so-called "naked ballots," or mail-in ballots that aren't properly sealed in two layers of envelopes.
"The state Supreme Court in Pennsylvania, a critical battleground state that’s seen as increasingly likely to determine who wins the White House, last week ordered officials to throw out 'naked ballots' — mail ballots that arrive without inner 'secrecy envelopes,'" reported Jonathan Lai. "Pennsylvania uses a two-envelope mail ballot system: A completed ballot goes into a 'secrecy envelope' that has no identifying information, and then into a larger mailing envelope that the voter signs."
No one can believe this GOP senator’s embarrassing ad is real
Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler of Georgia is in a tough race to keep her seat, and at least so far, it seems she’s not sending her best.
Her latest ad baffled many observers, prompting some to genuinely question whether the clip was real. It’s production quality and corniness are so over the top and unprofessional, it’s hard to believe it’s from a sitting senator. And the messaging itself is so hamfisted and unsubtle that it’s hard to imagine it’s an appealing ad for voters, even in Republican-leaning Georgia.
The ad starts with a couple sitting on a sofa talking about how conservative Loeffler is. OK. But then it goes off the rails when it literally says that Loeffler is “more conservative than Attila the Hun.” Yes, really. And it only gets worse.
