Don McGahn, former Trump White House attorney, 'was clearly distressed' by ex-president's behavior, top Democrat says after congressional testimony


Quote:

Former White House counsel Don McGahn testified Friday before the House Judiciary Committee.
The testimony related to former President Donald Trump's response to the Mueller investigation.
New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler said McGahn "was clearly distressed" by Trump's behavior

Former President Donald Trump's White House counsel, Don McGahn, "was clearly distressed" by his boss's response to the Mueller investigation, a top Democrat said Friday following congressional testimony.

"Mr. McGahn testified at length to an extremely dangerous period in our nation's history - in which President Trump, increasingly unhinged and fearful of his own liability, attempted to obstruct the Mueller investigation at every turn," New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said in a statement.


McGahn's closed-door testimony came as part of the committee's investigation into Trump's obstruction of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

A transcript of the hearing will be released at a future date, Nadler said.

"Mr. McGahn was clearly distressed by President Trump's refusal to follow his legal advice, again and again, and he shed new light on several troubling events," the lawmaker said.

The committee had issued a subpoena for McGahn's testimony back in 2019. At the time, he refused, citing "executive privilege," a reference to the president's ability to receive frank advise from his aides.

McGahn ultimately agreed to testify earlier this year after a deal struck between the Biden Department of Justice and congressional Democrats, his remarks limited to "publicly available portions of the Mueller Report," according to a May 12 court filing.

Trump, now just a citizen, could be criminally exposed... if a prosecutor was interested


Quote:
Rachel Maddow looks at a newly released transcript of last week's testimony by former Trump White House counsel Don McGahn that affirms findings in the Mueller report that could expose Donald Trump to criminal liability that couldn't be prosecuted when Trump was president but could be now if a prosecutor was willing to look at the assembled evidence and give the matter honest consideration.

Biden accidentally called Putin 'President Trump' at his post-summit press conference, then corrected himself


Quote:
The tweet was widely shared on social media, with some commentators seizing on allegations that President Donald trump was inappropriately friendly towards Putin.

Ahead of the meeting, Trump once again denied any collusion with Russia during his term and asked Biden to send Putin "my warmest regards!" via a blog post.

It's not the first eyebrow-raising blunder Biden has made - at a March press conference, he called Vice President Kamala Harris "President Harris."

On the campaign trail in 2019, he also acknowledged a "Freudian slip" when he called Trump "President Hump," as The Washington Post reported.

Commentary: Why are so many Republicans refusing vaccination? Because Russia is telling them to


Quote:
Lee Mcintyre, The Baltimore Sun
Mon, August 2, 2021, 4:22 AM·3 min read
What is the difference between doubt and distrust? Doubt can be overcome by evidence. Distrust cannot.

According to a recent Washington Post poll, refusal to get the COVID-19 vaccine has now become completely politicized in the USA. Among Democrats, 93% report that they’ve already gotten at least one shot or are likely to, compared with only 49% of Republicans.

Why so much refusal to vaccinate among the GOP? Because they’re being targeted by a deliberate campaign of disinformation. Science denial isn’t a mistake, it’s a purposeful lie.

Despite ample data that the vaccines are safe, false stories circulate on the internet claiming that scientists are lying to us, that the vaccines can make you infertile, that they contain microchips, that they can alter your DNA. Do these worries arise organically? Maybe some do. But such disinformation is often intentionally created to serve someone’s financial, political or ideological interests.

Among those with something to gain is the Russian government, which is diligently working to undermine confidence in the vaccines as part of its goal of destabilizing American society. It has been spreading misinformation for years on a host of other virus-related topics, including the flu and Ebola. From there, it’s a short hop to having their message amplified by conspiracy-embracing, right-wing media, whether witting or not, and by the soulless churn of algorithms on social media.

And it doesn’t take many people amplifying a false message to have an outsize effect. According to a recent PBS story, 65% of the anti-vaccine propaganda on Twitter was due to just 12 people, some of whom are profiting from the creation of bogus skepticism through the promotion of alternative treatments and cures.

The targets for all of this disinformation are gullible people, who are already feeling defensive and threatened and now feel justified in questioning scientific consensus. Of course, they don’t get anything out of it. Most of the people we call science deniers are just pawns of others who profit from their credulity or ideological allegiance. And in the case of COVID vaccine refusal, those pawns are dying. According to an Associated Press analysis of CDC data, 99.2% of COVID deaths in the U.S. are now among the unvaccinated.

GOP operatives, one recently pardoned by Trump, charged over Russian's donation to Trump

Does anyone remember Trump and Rudy's Ukraine team? Here's how crooked they are:

A Manhattan federal jury on Friday convicted former Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas and his ex-business partner of campaign finance violations stemming from a purported scheme to leverage foreign donations to U.S. political candidates into support for a legal cannabis venture.

ya no russian involvement to help trump and right wingers, another guilty judgment by a jury lets see if the right wing owned media puts this one front pages.

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/10/22/nyregion/lev-parnas-guilty-giuiliani.html?campaign_id=60&emc=edit_na_20211022&instance_id=0&nl=breaking-news&ref=cta&regi_id=115919677&segment_id=72437&user_id=f730a3b9531f5b2c781c5ff7996dd05c


Lev Parnas, Ex-Giuliani Ally, Is Convicted of Campaign Finance Charges


Quote:
Lev Parnas and his business partner, Igor Fruman, had climbed to prominent places in the orbit of President Donald J. Trump when they were arrested at Dulles International Airport near Washington in 2019 while holding one-way tickets to Frankfurt.

The two Soviet-born businessmen were accused of funneling a Russian tycoon’s money into American political campaigns. But in the two years that followed, Mr. Parnas’s role in events connected to Mr. Trump’s first impeachment slowly emerged. He acknowledged participating in an effort by Rudolph W. Giuliani to pressure Ukrainian officials to investigate Joe Biden, who was then a leading Democratic presidential candidate.

Even as Mr. Parnas’s profile grew, though, the campaign finance charges against him loomed.

On Friday, in Federal District Court in Manhattan, Mr. Parnas and an associate, Andrey Kukushkin, were convicted on all counts. Mr. Fruman and a fourth defendant, David Correia, had pleaded guilty previously.
