“Mueller Investigation Reveals Trump Ordered WH Attorney To Stop Jeff Sessions’ Russia Recusal”


“Robert Mueller’s ongoing special counsel investigation into Donald Trump’s ties to Moscow heated up again on Thursday, this time revealing that the president pushed his lawyer to stop Attorney General Jeff Sessions from recusing himself from the Russia probe.

According to The New York Times, “President Trump gave firm instructions in March to the White House’s top lawyer: stop the attorney general, Jeff Sessions, from recusing himself in the Justice Department’s investigation into whether Mr. Trump’s associates had helped a Russian campaign to disrupt the 2016 election.” MORE

“Tweet new year: Trump launches barrage of taunts and threats”


“President Donald Trump used his first full work day in 2018 to rekindle one of his favorite political pastimes from 2017: throwing haymakers on Twitter.

The president returned to his full combative form Tuesday after arriving in Washington the day prior from a holiday stay in Mar-a-Lago, taunting news outlets with the prospect of awarding them for their “dishonest & corrupt” coverage, threatening on social media to curb U.S. aid to Palestinians, calling for the jailing of former Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, and publicly competing with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un over the size of their nuclear buttons.” MORE

That’s exactly the mistake Dean saw Nixon and his close aides and accomplices, H. R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman, make about him: overconfidence.” MORE

“Trump Is So Unstable That His Advisers Have To Withhold Information From Him Or He Flips Out”


“If you talk about Russia, meddling, interference — that takes the PDB off the rails,” said a second former senior U.S. intelligence official.

Trump can’t be given facts in the same manner as other presidents. Information has to be massaged or hidden from him to prevent the President from getting upset and blowing up. Trump is making life and death decision with inadequate information because if his advisers tell him the truth, he gets upset.

America needs a steady hand at the wheel, not a 71-year-old man baby who can’t handle the truth.” MORE
