Trump Concludes Campaign Was Spied On, Warns Of ‘Long Jail’ Time For ‘TREASON’

President Trump was on a tear Friday morning, tweeting about a variety of his grievances du jour. The rant concluded with a presidential declaration: that his campaign was “conclusively spied on,” which he equated to “TREASON.” The president then warned of “long jail sentences” for those who commit the offense. My Campaign for President was conclusively spied on. Nothing like this has ever happened in American Politics. A really bad situation. TREASON means long jail sentences, and this was ...

Omarosa On Trump Camp Pay Discrimination Suit: ‘A Lot Of Women’ Will Come Forward

Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman predicted on Tuesday that “a lot more” women will come forward as she and other women who worked as Trump campaign staffers sue President Donald Trump for pay discrimination. Omarosa filed to join a lawsuit on Monday alleging that the 2016 Trump campaign had paid its female staffers 20% less than their male counterparts who were doing the same job. During an appearance on MSNBC on Tuesday, the former reality TV star said she had been getting pa...

Trump 2020 Comms Staffer Ran Blog That Called Muslims ‘Murderous Thugs’

“Never tweet,” goes the popular internet age refrain. In the case of Matt Wolking, the Trump 2020 campaign’s recently appointed director for rapid response, the aphorism should be tweaked to “never blog.” From 2008-2011, beginning in college and continuing after he graduated, the Republican communications staffer ran a blog called “Wolking’s World” rife with Islamophobic content and conspiracy theories. In an archived version of the site accessible via the Internet Archive, Wolking said over ...

Trump Campaign Tries To Distance Itself From Giuliani’s Ukraine Schemes

A spokesman for the Trump campaign on Friday tried to distance the President’s reelection effort from Rudy Giuliani’s plan to urge the Ukrainian government to conduct investigations that could help Trump politically. Yet throughout an interview on MSNBC, the spokesman, Marc Lotter, would not condemn Giuliani’s effort or commit to not using any information uncovered by a Ukrainian probe. Giuliani told the New York Times on Thursday that he will travel to Ukraine and urge leaders there to inves...

Trump Campaign Senior Adviser Posts Fake Bombing Video To Slam Omar

A senior adviser to President Trump’s 2020 campaign posted a video of a 2015 Ukrainian missile firing, misidentifying it as rockets being fired into Israel from Gaza, in an attempt to attack Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who has been critical of U.S. support of Israel. In the tweet, Pierson claims that “650 rockets” were fired into Israel, four people were killed and 28 wounded before she called on Omar to respond “to this violence.” “Will she condemn it?” she tweeted. 650 Rockets being fired into...

Trump Campaign Blames Obama For Russian Interference Amid Barr’s Hearing

President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign blasted out an email on Wednesday claiming former President Barack Obama “dropped the ball” on preventing Russian election interference in 2016. The campaign sent the email in the middle of Attorney General Bill Barr’s Senate Judiciary Committee testimony on his questionable handling of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia and obstruction investigations. “President Obama knew Russia was interfering in the 2016 election,” the email thundered. “But h...

Trump Campaign Blasts Out ‘Official Obama-Russia Accountability’ Survey

How much can President Trump get away with blaming his predecessor for Russia’s targeted interference in the 2016 election? That seems to be what the Trump campaign is trying to find out with the “Official Obama-Russia Accountability” survey it blasted out on Thursday. The “survey” – really just a mechanism for gathering voters’ contact information – promises that the President will “personally review” the responses of those who provide their answers (plus their names, emails and cell numbers)...

Democrat Hypocrisy on Executive Privilege Recalls Different ‘Gunwalker’ Reaction

Democrats are as hypocritical on Mueller report findings as they have been on guns. (Congressman Jerry Nadler/Facebook) U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “White House lawyers plan to tell attorneys for administration witnesses called by the House that they will be asserting executive privilege over their testimony, officials said,” The Washington Post reported Tuesday. “Such a move will intensify a power struggle between the Trump administration and congressional Democrats, potentially setting up a p...

Here’s How The Mueller Probe Was Hindered By Lies, Evidence Deletion

The special counsel investigation is over, but that doesn’t mean it’s complete. Robert Mueller’s report lays out multiple examples of ways the investigation was “impaired,” either by lying witnesses or by successful deletion of key conversations. “Several individuals affiliated with the Trump Campaign lied to the Office, and to Congress, about their interactions with Russian-affiliated individuals and related matters,” the redacted report reads. “Those lies materially impaired the investigati...

Trump And Russia Worked Towards The Same Goal In 2016

In the heady days of late July 2016, Donald Trump was ready for Russian help. That much is clear from the Mueller report, which recounts how Trump repeatedly told Michael Flynn to find Hillary Clinton’s deleted emails after publicly asking Russia to “find” them. That episode fits a broader pattern.  Throughout the 2016 campaign, Trump underlings and hangers-on — both in Russia and the United States — tried to leverage Trump’s chaotic presidential campaign for their mutual advantage. As ...

Mueller says use of encrypted messaging stalled some lines of inquiry

A single paragraph in the Mueller report out Thursday offers an interesting look into how the Special Counsel’s investigation came head-to-head with associates of President Trump who used encrypted and ephemeral messaging to hide their activities.

Trump Campaign Was Deeply Co-opted By Russian Influence Operation

While special counsel Robert Mueller was unable to establish a criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian government, his redacted report paints a picture of a campaign deeply co-opted by a multi-prong Russian influence campaign. The report details how over several months in the summer of 2016, different Russian intelligence operatives were able to alternately use the operation as an instrument for its own ends, receive inside information on the inner workings of the Trump cam...

Trump Camp. Fundraising Figures Building Up To Beat Sanders And Harris’ Combined

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign is set to report that it raised more than $30 million in the first quarter of 2019, edging out his top two Democratic rivals combined, according to figures it provided to The Associated Press.
