Graham Tells Don Jr To Ignore Senate Intel Subpoena: ‘You Don’t Need To Go’

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) had some legal advice for the president’s son on Sunday morning: ignore my colleagues’ subpoena.

Graham referred to Cohen as a “worthless” witness, but said he understood Sen. Richard Burr’s (R-NC) bipartisan motivation for the subpoena. “If I were Donald Trump Jr.’s lawyer, I would tell him, ...

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...

It was easy to forget the original purpose of the event as the President weighed in on the Mueller report, his own national security adviser and a subpoena issued to his son. As Trump ranted about the Russia probe “hoax...

More of Rudy’s Lawlessness Abroad

Last week I flagged this stunning and egregious story about Rudy Giuliani, the President’s private lawyer, going abroad to use to use the President’s power to enlist other governments to attack President Trump’s enemies. Giuliani has been globe-trotting like this for two years. In most cases, we don’t really know what he’s doing. In most cases he’s likely just collecting money. But in this case he’s using threat or inducement of the President’s power to target the President’s political enemies a...

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

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...
