This Week: Putin Praises Mueller, Barr Goes Full Trump

Special counsel Robert Mueller earned an unlikely defender this week: Russian President Vladimir Putin. During a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Putin referred to Mueller’s work as “exotic” and “very objective” — a far-cry from how President Trump himself characterized the probe this week. The President unilaterally concluded Friday that the investigation began as an attempt to spy on his campaign. Those behind the supposed spying deserved “long jail sentences,” he added....

TPUSA Member At UN Las Vegas ‘Removed’ From Organization Over ‘White Power’ Video

Turning Point USA, the Trump-aligned right-wing group trying to make conservatism cool on college campuses, had to deal with yet another incident of racism in its ranks Thursday: a video that showed the president of its University of Nevada, Las Vegas chapter endorsing “white power.” In a cell phone video surfaced by the anarchist news website It’s Going Down and other platforms, a man identified as the president of TPUSA-UNLV, Riley Grisar (above, left) is seen making the “a-okay” hand gestu...

Et Tu, Sen. Burr?

Donald Trump Jr and Donald Trump U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- How nauseating that RINO Sen. Richard Burr, as chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, is doing the bidding of vindictive Democrats in issuing a subpoena to Donald Trump Jr. Burr has joined the Democrats' investigatory vendetta against President Trump, most recently exemplified in the House Judiciary Committee's vote to hold Attorney General Will Barr in contempt of Congress. Democrats claim Barr is in contempt for failing to re...

The Meaning and Implications of the Mueller Report

I have finally finished reading the Mueller Report, slowly and with care. In one sense, the Report is more accessible than its intimidating four-hundred-plus pages may at first appear. The executive summaries of Volumes I and II are short, clear, and illuminating. Before voting in the 2020 primaries or general election, every literate American might consider reading them. On the other hand, it may be challenging for readers who are not sophisticated lawyers to figure out what is going on in...

This Week: A Report Much Worse Than The Public Was Led To Expect

Going into this week, we knew we’d get the Mueller report — and on Monday the Department of Justice told us when: Thursday. That announcement reportedly set off a wave of anxiety among White House officials about what the report would reveal they told the special counsel. In the days before the report went public, Trump tried to distract the public with attention-grabbing antics, touting a plan to bus asylum seekers to sanctuary cities and, in one characteristic tweet, demanding that someone “...

Yet others proved themselves to be quite willing lackeys, following Trump’s orders with little hesitation. We’ve rounded up so...

Apple Doesn’t Fall Far: Don Jr Won’t Rule Out A Future In Politics

Donald Trump Jr. may share more than his namesake with his father. Fresh off the high of not getting indicted by federal prosecutors for his role in coordinating a meeting with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign, Trump Jr. told Bloomberg Radio’s “Sound On” that he’s not ruling out a future in politics. But he’s not in any hurry. “If I can be helpful and I can be powerful voice for that that’s my primary focus,” Trump Jr. said, saying his main focus at the moment is promoting his father...

Like Clockwork, Conservatives Are Reacting To The Barr Letter In Bad Faith

As far as the country’s most prominent conservatives are concerned, the 22-month-long special counsel investigation can be neatly summed up in the four-page letter Attorney General Bill Barr put out Sunday afternoon. Never mind that we still have no idea what Robert Mueller found, and likely won’t for weeks. The dispatch from President Trump’s handpicked attorney general, who has already established that he doesn’t believe the president can obstruct justice, is the only proof they need that th...

Schiff Takes The Brunt Of GOP’s Fury After Mueller Report

WASHINGTON (AP) — “Damning evidence” of collusion with Russia. “More than circumstantial.” A scandal of a size “beyond Watergate.” For two years, Rep. Adam Schiff, the House Intelligence Committee chairman, seemed to be on every talk and late-night show sounding ominous warnings about what special counsel Robert Mueller might find on President Donald Trump. The California Democrat got the president’s attention — a fact confirmed when Trump turned the congressman’s name into a foul schoolyard t...
