Trump Reportedly Lashed Out To Whitaker About Controlling The NY Prosecutors After Cohen Plea

Despite a series of self-inflicted wounds by President Donald Trump over the Russian investigation in pressuring former Attorney General Jeff Sessions and directly discussing the investigation with former FBI Director James Comey, Trump has reportedly returned to the same pattern in lashing out with Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker. If true, it is entirely baffling. Republicans and Democrats have uniformly objected to these communications as improper and raising the appearance of influencing the investigation. It also undermines Whitaker’s position.

Media is reporting that the first call took place when Trump after Cohen pleaded guilty on November 29th to lying to Congress about a proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow. That was only two weeks after Whitaker became Acting Attorney General and during the intense media criticism that Whitaker was being appointed as a virtual stooge. At that very time, Trump called Whitaker to complain about an investigation implicating him in a federal crime?

Trump again had angry words for Whitaker after prosecutors in Manhattan officially implicated the President in a hush-money scheme to buy the silence of women around the 2016 campaign. This account is more serious because it says that Trump wanted to know why more was not being done to control prosecutors in New York who brought the charges. That is manifestly inappropriate and self-defeating.

    Brett McGurk, the U.S. envoy for the global coalition to defeat Islamic State (ISIS), has resigned in the wake of President Trump’s decision to pull U.S. troops out of Syria, Fox News confirmed Saturday — coming on the heels of the resignation of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis earlier this week.

    The Associated Press reported that McGurk said in a resignation letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that ISIS was on the run, but wasn’t yet defeated and that U.S. work in Syria wasn’t yet done. Fox News has confirmed that McGurk submitted his resignation letter on Friday, a day after Secretary Mattis resigned. His resignation is effective December 31. His resignation was first reported by CBS News.

    The president reacted to the news via Twitter Saturday evening, saying he had neither met McGurk nor appointed him.

    “Brett McGurk, who I do not know, was appointed by President Obama in 2015. Was supposed to leave in February but he just resigned prior to leaving,” Trump tweeted. “Grandstander? The Fake News is making such a big deal about this nothing event!”

    “If anybody but your favorite President, Donald J. Trump, announced that, after decimating ISIS in Syria, we were going to bring our troops back home (happy & healthy), that person would be the most popular hero in America,” he continued in a follow-up tweet. “With me, hit hard instead by the Fake News Media. Crazy!”

    McGurk, who was an Obama appointee in 2015, had said in a Dec. 11 press conference that it would be “reckless” to consider ISIS defeated and that the “enduring defeat of a group like this means you can’t just defeat their physical space and then leave.”

    “Nobody is saying that they are going to disappear. Nobody is that naive,” he told reporters. “So we want to stay on the ground and make sure that stability can be maintained in these areas.”

    McGurk previously served as a deputy assistant secretary of state for Iraq and Iran, and led secret side talks with Iran about the release of American prisoners during the negotiations for the Iran nuclear deal.

    McGurk had previously worked as a Supreme Court law clerk to the late Chief Justice William Rehnquist. He had also served on former President George W. Bush’s National Security Council staff, where in 2007 and 2008, he was the lead U.S. negotiator on security agreements with Iraq.

    McGurk’s departure is the latest sign of criticism from Trump’s allies in his administration, and in Congress, for the decision.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. recently blasted Trump for his decision to pull troops out of Syria, calling it an “Obama-like decision” — an allusion to Obama’s decision to pull troops from Iraq in 2011. In return, Trump fired back, saying it was difficult to understand why Graham would be against saving countless lives.

    On Saturday, Trump said that ISIS is “largely defeated” and that other countries, such as Turkey could take care of whatever is left.

    The increasingly isolated president explained his mind-set in a Nov. 27 interview with The Washington Post: “I have a gut, and my gut tells me more sometimes than anybody else’s brain can ever tell me.”

    Earlier this year, Trump began rejecting the advice of such economic advisers as Gary Cohn, who resigned in March, and instead followed his nationalist instincts to implement tariffs.

    But the departure of Mattis and the national security implications that come with it sent a shock of anxiety through Washington and world capitals that far exceeded the worries over Trump’s earlier trade moves.

    “This is a rogue presidency,” said Barry McCaffrey, a retired four-star Army general.

    “We’ve got Mr. Trump who looks, in the eyes of our allies and of the professionals in the key elements of our national security power, to be incompetent and impulsive and to be making bad decisions and to be excoriating America’s historic allies and then embracing people who are threats to U.S. national security,” he said.

    Consider the recent departures. Mattis, a revered former Marine Corps general who commanded respect worldwide, especially among NATO countries, quit after Trump defied him on the Syria withdrawal. His resignation letter was a stunning rebuke of Trump’s worldview, which he presented as a threat to the global order the United States helped build over the past seven decades.

    John F. Kelly, another Marine Corps general widely respected for his battlefield experience, was ousted this month as White House chief of staff after running afoul of Trump, who chafed against Kelly’s restrictive management style. After being turned down by a number of other candidates, Trump tapped Mulvaney to replace Kelly — temporarily, at least. Mulvaney has vowed to Trump that he would try to manage only the staff, not the president.

    Nikki Haley, who as ambassador to the United Nations showed flashes of independence and was far more aggressive with Russia and other traditional American adversaries than the president, is leaving this month on her own accord. Trump nominated as her replacement Heather Nauert, a onetime Fox News Channel presenter who has been delivering the administration’s message as State Department spokeswoman.

    Earlier this year, Trump pushed out H.R. McMaster as national security adviser, replacing the Army lieutenant general and military intellectual with John Bolton, a neoconservative veteran of the George W. Bush administration who officials say has proved more accommodating than McMaster of Trump’s impulses.

    1. “PH says: December 22, 2018 at 10:38 PM


      As I recall that’s one of those American Hating pieces of Trash & 2nd amd Foe like GHW Bush, Gen Petraeus, aka Betray US, Mark Kelly, etc…,

      I understand your from the dumbest state in the US, Cali, but even in Commie Lib heaven New Jersey they are not stupid enough to up their guns or mags.

        1. Of course, that’s why Your state just was written up as the dumbest people in the USA, you /read/hear “Babbling” when everyone is telling you stink because you keep stepping in Dog Sh*t, but you can’t hear, see or smell! LOL;)

          It’s been a few years since I seen that report, but there used to be more Phd’s per sq mile around here, Oky1 ville, then anywhere in the world.

          BTW: Ain’t you supposed be out there pickin Prunes.

        2. “Oky, what are you babbling about?? Drunk on Saturday night? ”

          You must be taking about WWAS.

          1. David, you’re correct, Oky displays the symptoms of mental illness; a serious problem that effects millions of Americans. We must be careful, however , not to stigmatize Oky. He should be treated with sensitivity.

            1. I can tell you boyz are going to need a room , but I suggest you use protection after that recent report of “widespread” 😉 Anal Cancer Outbreak on the Commie Coast. Don’t drop the soap…

              Christmas is Tuesday, think about going straight & getting Right with Jesus.

              Anyway, I know you’ve all those prune picker problems this morning, carry on….

      1. Incoherent, as usual. But please continue to post materials Just. Like. This.

        this is to “yup, hittin’ the fresh batch of ‘shine and barkin’ at the moon” okie

    2. Peter Hill – when cut comes to chase only one person makes the final decision, POTUS. One of the things you learn being an adviser to a high-up is that you give the advise, and they take it or they don’t. You don’t take it personally.

      Ask these generals how many times their advise was not taken by commanders higher up the line and did they write the newspaper?

      1. Sure Paul, but these generals are far more experienced and knowledgeable than Trump. Trump, as everyone knows, never reads reports. Instead Trump goes by only ‘gut instinct’. And his ‘gut instinct’ is basically ‘impulsive whim’.

        Therefore Trump is ending his second year in office with a government shutdown; a mindless development for the Christmas holidays. What’s more, the stock market, which Trump routinely bragged about not so long ago, is now dropping in such a way that recession worries are now very real. Furthermore, Trump’s best appointees are abandoning ship. This is not where a president wants to be at the beginning of his third year.

    1. No, It wasn’t Trump.

      You can call them, Commies or Fascist or Marxist Commie Fascist Progressive Democrats & Neo-Con War Mongers aka War Pigs but the 93 million plus Trump supporters went & said phk those B*stards & pulled their money out of the markets.

      You Broke it you Own It! Eat your Muler Pissgate sh*t & enjoy it.

      Looks like a long Cold Winter for the Dems/Rep Neo Cons.


    I had’t seen this story; ‘attempts by Trump to compromise Whitaker’. It doesn’t surprise me, though.

    One has to be their ‘own’ attorney serving Donald Trump. Because bowing to ‘his’ whims could limit your future. Let Trump throw a tantrum. He’ll be mad at someone else before the day is over.

  4. With such a continuous focus on the least important events where the stories are based on anonymous or questionalbe sources I am beginning to believe my visits to this blog are no different than a visit to the tawdry bookstore down the block.

    1. Allan, I emphasize. It’s sad when esquires like yourself discover their favorite blogs are quoting unnamed sources. No patriot of your dignity should tolerate such sass.

      Demonstrate your outrage, Allan, by refusing to comment. It would send a humbling message to Professor Turley. ‘His wisest commentator vanishes in disgust’. You should ‘do’ that, Allan, to bring Turley down.

      1. Peter, not unexpectantly you missed the point. In the above comment I was focussing on the repetitive nature where Turley focuses on stories that have the least importance and don’t even have a solid basis. I think It diminishes the appearance of Turley’s intellect and ability to set aside personal feelings. At times it sounds like a kid in the park savoring his victory because he got the other 6 year old to blink.

        Turley has an abundance of something you totally lack, intellect. Therefore, when you make jerky statements we can all laugh but when Turley appears to stoop to your level it is painful to those that respect the intellect of others even when they disagree with them.

        1. “I think It diminishes the appearance of Turley’s intellect …” sez Allan.

          “Turley has an abundance of something you totally lack, intellect.” sez Allan.

          So says Allen.

          Don’t think your usage of the word ‘appearance’ in your first quote saves you from embarrassment, Allan.

          It must make you feel good to just insult others — in your whole time here — berating others on their lack of knowledge; demanding data; demanding a lot of things that your posts rarely present.

          You demand what you fail to offer.

          You’re a fool by another name, Allan.

          1. It looks like WWAS has woken up again from one of his stupors. Are you trying to pretend that you have something to say? If so, it is really not getting across. Go back on your Antibuse and get a change of clothes. Right now your smell is not appealing.

            1. No stupor on my side, Allan; I’ve just been marveling at your propensity to chide others for the very same faults you exhibit.

              You offer no ‘data’; you insult, and assume that’s all you need do. When you do cut and paste other’s tomes you give no link, nor do you summarize.

              These are all faults you accuse others of, yet you do the same.

              It seems that, over the course of a year, this is all you’re capable of.

              You’re a wanker, Allan.

              1. Apparently WWAS you don’t read very well but want to get in on some action. I’ve yet to hear you say anything of value. Most of my postings are my own not cut and paste. Intermittantly when you wake up you comment and start a fight. You don’t know what you are talking about, but you do so anyhow. Why don’t you say something that means something?

                1. Allan,

                  You are so funny; a fool with arrogant banter beyond his means.

                  Let’s proceed, shall we:

                  “Most of my postings are my own not cut and paste.” — Allan

                  Please note that I said, “when you do cut and paste other’s tomes…”. It’s right above, I’m sure you can find it.

                  Point being — when you do cut and paste other’s tomes you offer no insight, which according to you is the weakness of all others that do the same.

                  Are your cut/pastes so special that they don’t require the substantiation you demand from others?

                  “I’ve yet to hear you say anything of value.” — Allan

                  It is readily apparent that the only thing you value are posts you agree with — and of course your own posts. This doesn’t trouble me as you are blinded by your own demands from others that you continually fail at; but I will point it out when your charade is carried on for for so long.

                  “You don’t know what you are talking about, but you do so anyhow.” — Allan

                  I’m talking about you, Allan; your arrogance, your demands from others, demands that you don’t bother with; your propensity to declare that no one knows what they are talking about — except you.

                  This makes you a fool, Allan.

                  1. WWAS, you act like a braggart, so I’ll call you out. Pick the battle on something with substance. To date you have shown yourself filled only with hot air unwilling and perhaps unable to discuss substantitive points. I’m waiting.

                    1. Has it been two days WWAS? I guess you were unable to formulate an intelligent argument. Understandable for the braggart you are who can only voice hot air. I’m waiting WWAS.

                    2. “WWAS, you act like a braggart, so I’ll call you out.” — Allan

                      It is most curious how you see me as a braggart with all of your copious posts that far exceed mine. Additionally, the vast majority of your posts just state how uninformed the original poster is. These are the same points I noted above, Allan.

                      “Pick the battle on something with substance.” — Allan

                      I am. You offer no substance sans your bellowing at others.

                      “To date you have shown yourself filled only with hot air unwilling and perhaps unable to discuss substantitive [sic]points.”

                      That’s funny, that’s my opinion of your posts.

                    3. I knew you couldn’t add anything to discuss. You are a braggart and full of hot air. We are not talking about the number of posts or their length. The only thing that you have said to me is garbage having nothing to do with the the multiple topics discussed where, though you might not agree, I had significant input. You had absolutely nothing to say..

                      So braggart, are you just going to continue venting hot air from your weak mind or are you going to pick something useful to discuss? I think we already know the answer. You will either continue with your lame attacks or squirm on you stomach until you find a hole you can hide in.

                    4. “Has it been two days WWAS? I guess you were unable to formulate an intelligent argument.”

                      You refuse to see the argument offered, Allan.

                      Your crudeness is the argument, Allan. Your many posts that are nothing but ad hominem show your character. Your pretensions of intellect have been long exposed as a charade.

                    5. “You refuse to see the argument offered, Allan.”

                      WWAS, I got the point. You neither agree with me or like me. Too bad. All you wish to argue are personalities. Maybe that halps make up for lacking one. I am waiting for an intellectual discussion not your girlie ones and not statements you can’t back up. Do yourself a favor and find a hole.

                    6. You refuse to see the argument offered, Allan.

                      The ‘argument’ you ‘offered’ on December 22, 2018 at 6:20 PM was a petty beef that Allan had criticized the moderator’s topic selection. The rest of your comments consist of more verbiage in that vein and puerile insults.

  5. People wonder why Trump is angry and lashing out? This article lays it all out…

    Excerpts from the article:

    “In examining the cast of FBI and senior Department of Justice (DOJ) officials fired, retired, resigned and under investigation since May 2017, the breathtaking scope of the FBI’s unprecedented criminal efforts to steer a presidential election and frame a newly elected president serves as Exhibit A for the organization’s disbandment. The “leadership” that willfully and corruptly ignored Hillary Clinton’s criminal mishandling of highly classified information had no problem faking a counterintelligence investigation to smear and destroy President Trump.

    A recitation of the FBI/DOJ Litany of Shame is called for: Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, Baker, Ohr, Yates, Priestap, Rybicki, Kortan, Campbell, Turgal, Bower, Steinbach, Giacalone, Laufman, Carlin, McCord — there are more, and eventually we’ll learn their names. Some took unlawful action draped in the American flag and smarmy self-righteousness. Some were careerists craving a retirement paycheck and a strong resume, standing by and doing nothing — negligent or complicit with guilty knowledge.

    The group dubbed the “Secret Society” by FBI lawyer Lisa Page in a text to self-anointed FBI “Super Agent” Peter Strzok had a clear goal: Stop Trump. But how to do that “legally”? How does one manufacture a phony Russia hoax and hang it around Trump’s neck when you’re constrained from going after his campaign, organization and staff?”………

    ……”Here’s the big picture: there are the crimes described above — and there are the crimes to facilitate and then cover-up the underlying activity. That’s where the FBI got lost. It’s gone. No sensible American believes in the organization anymore. The DOJ is right there with them. Compromised, arrogant, ruthless, vindictive, detached, self-righteous, hypersensitive to criticism and largely immune. A fish rots from the head down. Go back and read the FBI/DOJ Litany of Shame. Review Comey’s arrogant, smug, Flynn-interview statement: “something I probably wouldn’t have done or maybe gotten away with in a more … organized administration.”

    1. TBob,

      Great piece.

      I haven’t heard this guy in more a few years but 16 minutes in so far he sounds like his got part of a handle on things… I’ll see… ya, it’s not brand new, but it would clear PH’s head maybe.

    2. Awesomeness! In for a penny, in for a pound! Why not just cut to the chase and quote from “Stormfront”?

      this is to “ya, he’s a traitor, but he don’t like the dusky types” t-hott bobbie

  6. This is interesting. Re. the quality of life for native Africans, pre vs. post Western colonialism: life was so much better for native Africans during Western Colonialism than their current post-Colonial existence, that native black Africans long for and cry out for a new white colonialism. The woman reporting this is a beautiful black African-Canadian woman named Martha Leah Nangalama, a student of the struggles and political strife and suffering in modern Africa:

    White Western colonialism in Africa apparently supplied a better quality of life for black Africans than so-called “freedom” under their black over lords. USA democracy now legally enables black women to murder in the womb 45% of their unborn black babies, a ratio that the DNC would like to ratchet up higher.

    Many regard Africa as the largest store of untapped wealth on earth. Hillary oversaw funneling US tax dollars and the CIA to train alleged “Islamic moderates” (oxymoron) to over throw, anal rape, and behead Ghaddafi, after Hillary promised not to harm Ghaddafi. But that’s allegedly OK, because Ghaddafi was a “bad dude,” you know, in an area of the world otherwise allegedly populated by nice folks like the USA ally, the Al Saud Krime Syndikat, who annually behead more people than ISIS and Al CIA-duh combined, and liquified their journalist enemy, USA resident Kashoggi.

    It’s all for the chillen, and mom, baseball, and apple pie!

  7. Reportedly means much the same as purportedlhy or allegedly. No sense wasting time until it says Factually and objectively.

  8. “How Hillary Clinton Triggered Vince Foster’s Suicide”

    Her humiliating attack deepened his depression, pushing him over the edge

    Overlooked in the recent controversy over the death of Bill Clinton’s Deputy White House Counsel Vince Foster is the fact that FBI agents investigating the case found that Hillary Clinton triggered his suicide when she attacked and humiliated her mentor from their former Rose Law Firm in front of other White House aides a week before he took his own life.The FBI investigation was conducted for independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr’s probe of the Clintons’ investments in the Whitewater real estate development. While the exhaustive investigation found conclusively that Foster committed suicide, for unknown reasons, Mr. Starr elected to conceal the FBI’s findings about Hillary’s role in his death in his final report. But in interviews for my book “The First Family Detail,” the FBI agents revealed the truth about Foster’s death on July 20, 1993, when he shot himself at Fort Marcy Park along the Potomac River. In interviewing Clinton White House aides and Foster’s friends and family, the FBI found that a week before Foster’s death, Hillary held a meeting at the White House with Foster and other top aides to discuss her proposed health care legislation. Hillary violently disagreed with a legal objection Foster raised at the meeting and ridiculed him in front of his peers, former FBI agent Coy Copeland and former FBI supervisory agent Jim Clemente told me. Mr. Copeland was Mr. Starr’s senior investigator and read the reports of other agents working for Mr. Starr. During the White House meeting, Hillary continued to humiliate Foster mercilessly, both former FBI agents say. “Hillary put him down really, really bad in a pretty good-size meeting,” Mr. Copeland says. “She told him he didn’t get the picture, and he would always be a little hick town lawyer who was obviously not ready for the big time.” Indeed, Hillary went so far as to blame Foster for all the Clintons’ problems and accuse him of failing them, according to Mr. Clemente, who was also assigned by the FBI to the Starr investigation and who probed the circumstances surrounding Foster’s suicide. “Foster was profoundly depressed, but Hillary lambasting him was the final straw because she publicly embarrassed him in front of others,” says Mr. Clemente, who, like Mr. Copeland, spoke about the investigation for the first time. “Hillary blamed him for failed nominations, claimed he had not vetted them properly, and said in front of his White House colleagues, ‘You’re not protecting us’ and ‘You have failed us,’ ” Mr. Clemente says. “That was the final blow.” After the meeting, Foster’s behavior changed dramatically, the FBI agents found. Those who knew him said his voice sounded strained, he became withdrawn and preoccupied, and his sense of humor vanished. At times, Foster teared up. He talked of feeling trapped. On Tuesday, July 13, 1993, while having dinner with his wife Lisa, Foster broke down and began to cry. He said he was considering resigning. That weekend, Foster and his wife drove to the Eastern Shore of Maryland, where they saw their friends, Michael Cardoza and Webster Hubbell, and their wives. “They played tennis, they swam, and they said he sat in a lawn chair, just kind of sat there in the lawn chair,” Mr. Copeland says. “They said that just was not Vince. He loved to play tennis, and he was always sociable, but he just sat over in the corner by himself and stared off into space, reading a book.” Two days later, Foster left the White House parking lot at 1:10 p.m. The precise time when he shot himself could not be pinpointed. After Park Police found his body, they notified the U.S. Secret Service at 8:30 p.m. Based on what “dozens” of others who had contact with Foster after that meeting told the agents, while Foster was already depressed, “The put-down that she gave him in that big meeting just pushed him over the edge,” Mr. Copeland says. “It was the final straw that broke the camel’s back.” No one can explain a suicide in rational terms. But the FBI investigation concluded that it was Hillary’s vilification of Foster in front of his colleagues, coming on top of his depression, that triggered his suicide about a week later, Mr. Copeland and Mr. Clemente both say. Mr. Starr issued a 38,000-word report, along with a separate psychologist’s report on the factors that contributed to Foster’s suicide. Yet Mr. Starr never mentioned the meeting with Hillary, leaving out the fact that his own investigation had found that Hillary’s attack had led to her friend’s suicide. Mr. Starr never told Mr. Copeland or Mr. Clemente why he decided to exclude the findings from his report. But Mr. Clemente says, “Starr didn’t want to offend the conscience of the public by going after the first lady. He said the first lady is an institution.”

      this is to “they don’t know that I’m sometimes invisible” georgie – paulie

  9. Moderator: Why is MY post being “considered” as I am QUOTING Hillary, or don’t you want a “Real Quote, that you too, can look up Also?” You know, there ARE other people who DO pay attention to the whole political agenda, like myself. Is this also a site that is NOT open to ‘Other Republican/Conservative Opinions, that have FACTS and QUOTES to go along with their articles-such as myself, a “Political Junkie”????

  10. It’s not baffling at all. He’s been named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a criminal case. He has a profound lack of comprehension about who the U.S. Attorney actually represents. He has openly stated his idea of good attorney is Roy Cohn; who was one of his early mentors. Baffling? He values loyalty far above legality and ethics. “Baffling”? To quote Inigo Montoya, “I don’t think that word means what you think it does”. I think the word you were looking for was “predictably”.

    1. Oh, come on now. Does anyone, including those with Trump Derangement Syndrome (defined as those who believe that anything Trump does or says is OK, and should be defended), believe for one minute:

      1. That Whitaker, way far down the line of succession within the Justice Department, was appointed for any reason other than expressing hostility toward the Mueller investigation; or

      2. That Trump would respect the rule of law and not try to pressure or force Whitaker to stop, limit or interfere with the Mueller investigation, leading to Whitaker also possibly being charged with obstruction of justice?

      Apparently Turley believes this, and so do most people, given that Trump fired Jeff Sessions because he recused himself. Whitaker is inexperienced, but I hope he has sense enough to know that everything and everyone Trump touches turns to manure.

      1. NUTCHACHA is so capable. Why do y’all need a crutch? Can we get rid of “Affirmative Action Privilege” and generational welfare now? Can we get rid of her communistic, socially engineered, redistributionist welfare state yet? Can America get freedom back?

        1. I regret to inform you, sir, that your idealized, infantile, misogynistic, fantasy-world idea of what my beloved country consists of, never existed. Perhaps you could endeavor to convert your fellow citizens of the desirability of your version, via a constitutional convention. However, I hate to burst your bubble, but minorities and women are allowed to vote here in the real world.

          this is to “I woulda been a great slave-owner, I tell ya” crazy georgie – paulie

    2. Allan, That was MY question also-Why did Prof. T. even POST this article as it appears ‘more uncontrollable leakers talking about issues?’ Turley it appears is relying on ‘those anonymous sources, like the Liberal Media CONSTANTLY uses, as they attack this POTUS 24/7…Unlike the Liberal, Marxist Obama they worshipped
      along with HIS Racist Wife, both of which are “showing No Class in their attacks on a Sitting POTUS….that WE the people voted for.” Anyone connected to the Obamas
      appears to continue in their “Their Hate Mode” and it is TIRESOME.

      Watch for all the “Paid Trolls to attack this post as they always do!”

  11. “Multiple Sources familiar with the matter”, is the lead of every lying asshat at CNN. In this case I have it from multiple sources, one more than CNN, familiar with the matter, that CNN’s multiple sources are pathological liars related to HRC. So there!

      That’s the same MO the old corrupt CIA funded media was saying when this now proven fake Pissgate crap floated to the top of the toilet bowl.

      Between the Declaration of War, NDAA & EO’s already in place no Reasonable person would see anything wrong with Trump hauling Muler, his crew & any anyone, including federal judges off to Gitmo for a lil time out & electroshock. LOL:)

      Note that Turley isn’t saying anything about the Fed Judges are Knowing allowing this Pissgate crap continue even after public info clearly shows multiple Frauds Against the Court.

    2. Bill Arbell – we know from reliable sources that CNN’s Reporter of the Year was writing fake news. Der Spiegle is in meltdown mode.

    3. Excellent! I might direct you, sir, to reddit, which is down the hall. Pro tip: only your dwindling 38%er cohort of day glo bozo ball-baggers think that CNN is anything other than a well-respected news organization which is vital to a healthy and free Republic. So sorry for your loss.

  12. Media is reporting

    That’s of interest to you just why? Why is it you assume this story has any reality outside the imaginations of the reporter and editor who put it in the paper?

    1. Because media, not counting Faux News, Limbaugh and Coulter (which aren’t really journalists or media, just Trump propaganda), are mostly honest in what they report. It’s only those with Trump Derangement Syndrome, thoroughly steeped in the “media are lying about me” Trumpism slop who think otherwise, which is just how they want you to think.

      1. are mostly honest in what they report.

        Sayeth the woman whose only detour into honesty are the indicators of her emotional states.

  13. I’m surprised you only use links to identify the source of this report. CNN is not known as a friend of Trump. Second or third party confirmations would be called for.

    1. CNN cites “multiple sources,” Rudy Guliani wouldn’t deny it when asked to comment. Forget for a moment you don’t have an actual videotape of something completely within Trump’s character. What should happen if the events described are true?

  14. Trump continues to demonstrate he is unworthy of being President. He needs to go or be removed

      1. “Crazy Abe” Lincoln imposed the curse that is the cure.

        “Crazy Abe” Lincoln nullified the Constitution to abolish slavery.

        It has, thus far, been impossible to put the genie back in the bottle.

        The anti-constitutional, and, therefore, unconstitutional “Reconstruction Amendments” and Women’s Suffrage Amendment have led to the current incoherent, hysterical and terminal condition of free America with welfare and “Affirmative Action Privilege” the prime deleterious constitutional violations. Those amendments unconstitutionally nullified and denied freedoms to all Americans for the benefit of individuals and individual groups. The prime violations were those against the limitations on the power of Congress to tax merely for “…general Welfare…” not ‘individual Welfare,” and the right to private property “…in the exclusion of every other individual…,” including the government, according to James Madison, who defined private property as “that dominion which one man claims and exercises over the external things of the world, in exclusion of every other individual.”

        The American Founders wrote the Constitution and Bill of Rights to stand in perpetuity, much like the Ten Commandments. A small percentage of Americans conducted the Revolutionary War against the British Empire. A small percentage of deceitful and treacherous American collectivists began the complete nullification of the Constitution, put “Crazy Abe” Lincoln in office, manipulated votes, illegally and deleteriously imported voters, corrupted elections and improperly and “injuriously” amended the Constitution. It remains to be seen if a small percentage of Americans can re-implement the literal and original Constitution and Bill of Rights, excluding subsequent, subversive, anti-constitutional and unconstitutional amendments.

        “…as will not injure the Constitution,…”

        ” And if there are amendments desired, of such a nature as will not injure the constitution, and they can be ingrafted so as to give satisfaction to the doubting part of our fellow citizens; the friends of the federal government will evince that spirit of deference and concession for which they have hitherto been distinguished.”

        – James Madison, Proposed Amendments to the Constitution, June 8, 1789

        Ben Franklin, 1789, we gave you “…a republic, if you can keep it.”

        Ben Franklin, 2019, we gave you “…a republic, if you can take it back.”

    1. Martha, perhaps it was Really Obama and his Corrupt Regime of Rogue Intel Directors who “did HIS Bidding and still are, because they are ALL Covering Up their OWN CRIMINALITY.” Isn’t it odd to you, that ALL the people surrounding Obama were up to their Eyeballs in “First trying to Oust Campaigner, Trump, THEN the duly elected POTUS Trump?” IF NOT, then YOU are not paying attention to facts, and here’s one for you and the rest of Trump Haters:

      Please recall in writing when Hillary was upset about “WHY, am I Not being 50 points ahead?” and she was livid(because she Knew Obama, etal were assisting Her win, not Trump-which is WHY they had to try to stop him so Hillary and the DNC paid for that “Fake Dossier” and “The Rogue Mueller Probe-ALL OVER THE MAP”

      Also she said: “IF THAT BASTARD WINS, WE WILL ALL HANG” Look it up if you don’t believe it, because Obama put in “The Fix for her,
      as SHE would have swept ALL hers’ and Obama’s and his Intel Directors/Agents loyal to HIM and ALL THEIR Criminality-“Under the Whitehouse Rugs”
