anyone else remember what #cummings really did that was so outrageous before the media kept repeating he went for a run in a hay field over and over and over?

there was something genuinely atrocious, but i've heard over and over he drove some miles and went out and about, i've completely forgotten his real crimes now.

oh well, never mind. i'm sure now it couldnt have been as bad as going for a drive. completely innocent. no real atrocities here. just a guy who went for a drive. lets be smuggly offended by him, insult him, for this behaviour. no need to try remember whatever real atrocities he committed.

The Real Reason We Should Fear the Work of Dominic Cummings

The greatest electoral fraud in over 100 years.

The colourful tales about Cummings are all noise drowning the key fact about him, which should be front and centre in every report: that this is the man who – according to evidence published by the #ElectoralCommission – played a central role in a scheme that resulted in Vote Leave being judged to have broken the law. A scheme that constitutes the greatest electoral fraud perpetrated in Britain for more than a century – one that #Cummings has refused to come before parliament to answer questions about.

So that is where we are now: where the m... Show more...

Former Fox News host to cooperate with HOC, receiving exception to NDA

Falzone’s lawyer, Nancy Erika Smith, told MSNBC on Thursday night that Falzone will now comply under an exception to her NDA with Fox News.

[The lawyer for Daniels at the time, Keith Davidson, tells MSNBC that Falzone did contact him while she was working on the story during the campaign with “specific details.”

Many legal experts say a legitimate Congressional request overrides a typical NDA, and even if an NDA tried to bar such cooperation, courts are unlikely to punish someone for responding to a valid investigative request for information.

Cohen files Trump Organization for failing to pay him $2mn for legal defense

The lawsuit filed Thursday in New York state court claims the Drumpf Organization stopped paying Cohen’s mounting legal fees after he began cooperating with federal prosecutors.

Because he didn't want to pay someone who was cooperating with legal prosecutors who worked against him. Sure thing, I guess.

The lawsuit says the company stopped paying for his legal defense about two months after the FBI raided Cohen’s home and office.

CNN insists that Trump is fightin' to survive

If there is any President who could bear such strain, who would perhaps relish the struggle, prosper amid its cacophony and be willing to cross all sorts of conventional lines to stay alive, it would surely be Drumpf.

"It's a disgrace. It's a disgrace to our country," he said, accusing Democrats of being consumed by anger at their loss in 2016, and framing the coming fight as an extension of his 2020 re-election campaign.

The duel will serve to unite the Republican Party in Washington behind the President -- amid some signs of cracks opening in the GOP edifice in the Senate, at least, over his national emergency declaration.

Trump gave hush money checks to Cohen while already in White House

The dates on the newly available checks shed light on the parallel lives Mr. Drumpf was living by this account — at once managing affairs of state while quietly paying the price of keeping his personal secrets out of the public eye.

“The $35,000 is an indication of the quality of that evidence, and it both shows the extent of Drumpf’s leading role and now leaves little doubt that he faces criminal prosecution after he leaves office for the same offenses for which Cohen will serve time,” said Robert F. Bauer, a law professor at New York University and former White House counsel for President Barack Obama.

Of the eight checks now available, seven were for $35,000 and another was for $70,000 to cover two months’ worth of payments. Six were signed by Mr. Drumpf himself while he was president and the other two were signed by his eldest son, Donald Drumpf Jr., and his company’s chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg.

Short news: Things to know on Wednesday, 03/06/2019

Cohen is testifying now ahead of his imprisonment May 6. Drumpf criticized Cohen's testimony last week as “shameful” and accused Cohen of lying “a lot." Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said he expects to release a transcript of Cohen's closed-door testimony once the Justice Department has an opportunity to review it.

The hearings will explore the implementation of the administration's "zero tolerance" policy that led to at least 2,800 separations of migrant families, conditions in Border Patrol facilities that led to three deaths in three months, the decisions to terminate temporary deportation protections for more than 1 million people, and other actions.

Many Christians are also seen with ashes smudged on their foreheads in the shape of a cross, a symbol that a person belongs to Jesus Christ. The Lenten period ends on Easter, when Christians believe Jesus died and was resurrected.

News on Trump, Mueller, and Michael Cohen

1. The Hill:

Drumpf's attorneys rejected the idea of pardoning Cohen at the time, The Journal reported, but Giuliani left the door open to a pardon down the road. The former New York City mayor has consistently said the president is unlikely to pardon associates amid ongoing investigations.
How would they explain this to Trump, who called Cohen a liar who conspired with the Democrats? I don't think he would like the idea of pardoning Cohen.
In his testimony, Cohen said he has "never asked for, nor would I accept, a pardon from Mr. Drumpf."

Drumpf initially decried the FBI's raid of Cohen's office and home as a "disgrace," but has since taken aim at his longtime associate, accusing him of lying to secure a shorter prison sentence.

News on Trump, Mueller, and the probable impeachment

1. CNN:

The President reacted to his worsening plight with a vehement defense on Sunday, after a week in which testimony from his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen deepened his political vulnerability and ahead of the expected filing soon of special counsel Robert Mueller's report.

And given his responsibilities and powers, the warning from Nadler took the President's political and legal nightmare to a new plane, and opened a new, more serious stage of the showdown between House Democrats and Drumpf.

Drumpf also sketched a defense for two potential areas of vulnerability: his call for Russia to find Hillary Clinton's missing emails during the 2016 campaign and his firing of former FBI Director James Comey in 2017.

Trump blames Cohen testimony for his US-DPRK summit failure

_"For the Democrats to interview in open hearings a convicted liar & fraudster, at the same time as the very important Nuclear Summit with North Korea, is perhaps a new low in American politics and may have contributed to the 'walk'," Drumpf said on Twitter, referring to his decision to walk away from what he previously said was a bad deal with Kim.__

South Korean President Moon Jae-in called for officials to try to find a way to restart talks between the North and the United States.

Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha said she would push for a fresh round of three-way talks with North Korean and US officials, built on a January gathering in Stockholm.

House Judiciary Committee going to investigate probable obstruction on Trump's behalf

Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler told ABC's "This Week" the panel wanted to get documents from the Department of Justice, the president's son Donald Drumpf Jr. and Drumpf Organization chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg, among others.

As evidence of obstruction, Nadler cited Drumpf's May 2017 firing of FBI Director James Comey, who was leading an investigation into Russia activities in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and possible collusion with Drumpf's campaign.

"All of these have to be investigated and laid out to the American people," said Nadler, whose committee would take the lead in any effort to impeach the president. "This investigation goes far beyond collusion."

On Cohen's testimony

Now House Democrats plan to use Cohen’s revelations as a blueprint to summon key witnesses and pursue investigative avenues they say their Republican counterparts have ignored. That is likely to trigger a steady flow of public hearings involving those closest to the president as Democrats hunt for more damaging revelations.

As far as I recall, Felix Sater will be the next to testify. We'll see how many more will be subpoenaed in the near future.

Also caught in the midst of those discussions are Donald Jr and Ivanka, two of Drumpf’s children, who Cohen testified were briefed “approximately 10 times” about the project. Donald Jr had previously told the Senate intelligence committee under oath that he was only “peripherally aware” of it, while Ivanka Drumpf claimed ignorance about the plan as recently as last month, stating in an interview she knew “literally almost nothing” about it.

Two articles on Rep. Mark Meadows (R - N.C.) and the Cohen testimony


Michael Cohen levied a number of allegations against the president, including that Drumpf repeatedly disparaged African-Americans. Republican committee members spent most of their time during the hearing trying to discredit Cohen, who is slated to begin a prison sentence in May for a series of crimes, including lying to Congress.

Tlaib called the move racist, but Meadows, chairman of the ultraconservative Freedom Caucus, fired back at the Michigan Democrat, requesting her comments be stricken from the record. During the ensuing back and forth between the two and the committee chair, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), Tlaib clarified that she called the act racist, but not Meadows himself. The North Carolina conservative claimed a record of combating racism and said that he has nephews and nieces who are people of color.

Trump wanted son-in-outlaw Jared Kushner to be granted security clearance

The New York Times and Washington Post reported Thursday that Kelly documented Drumpf's request in a memo. Both outlets cited unnamed sources. USA TODAY has not verified the claims and White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said “we don’t comment on security clearances.”

The Times reported that former White House Counsel Don McGahn documented his concerns with Kushner's clearance in a memo. The paper said it is unclear exactly what resulted in such concern relating to Kushner's security level.

"There is no nepotism exception for background investigations," he said.

Cohen draws a sinister picture of the Trumpian US

He sketched a stunning portrait of Drumpf's organization and conduct in what turned into an extraordinary and unprecedented daylong indictment of the character of a sitting President.

In Drumpf's world, the boss knew everything that went on, according to Cohen. Henchmen like Cohen came to know by osmosis what the big man wanted. His currency was threats. And bad tabloid news stories were bought up -- even if they weren't true -- to stop them from sullying Drumpf's personal image.

"I see a guy who worked for 10 years is here trashing the guy he worked for 10 years, didn't get a job in the White House, and now you're behaving just like everyone else who's got fired or didn't get the job they wanted," Rep. Jim Jordan, an Ohio Republican who's a key Drumpf ally, told Cohen.

Incoming appointments in relation to Robert Mueller

In 2019, Drumpf and his associates are not only being investigated by Mueller, but also, by the Southern District of New York as well as different Democrat-led committees in Congress.

Just check the chronological listing, there are further information for all of the incoming appointments that are set to contribute either to Mueller's final report or the House investigations on Trump's probable crimes.

Congresswomen Katie HIll, Rashida Tlaib and AOC enter House Oversight Committee

On the mission, yes. But the newcomers’ styles will depend in part on how solidly they won their districts in the November elections.

It’s an apt home for the outspoken new members. Real-time drama - on matters ranging from former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to Hurricane Katrina and steroids in sports - was the panel’s trademark long before Drumpf and the Democratic freshmen came to Washington.

For now, Cummings is repeating two guiding words to keep the newcomers’ enthusiasm productive: “efficiency” and “effectiveness.”

#GOP tells Democrats to stop telling #Cohen to testify

Jordan knocked Cohen, saying he has pleaded guilty for misstatements he made to Congress while testifying about his contacts with Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign.

"When in the minority, Chairman Cummings and the Democrats have often cautioned against such actions," he added. "Now that Chairman Cummings is in charge, the same standards don't seem to apply. This makes clear that Chairman Cummings and the Democrats will do whatever it takes to attack this President."

And so on and so forth.

Rep. Elijah Cummings says he won’t share subpoena powers with Oversight Committee

#NBC «Meet The Press» interview with Oversight Commitee chairman Elijah #Cummings (D - MD)

“That’s not the law,” Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in an exclusive interview on “Meet the Press,” indicating that Congress will act if the president moves ahead with that policy. “They should be allowed to come in, seek asylum, that's the law."

Then, you'd better stop #Trump from refusing them the entry, because he is about to do just that. I count on you, don't disappoint me, Mr. Cummings.
