Afghan contractor hands out bounties of $100,000 per American killed. Trump denies he was briefed. His crooked lawyer Rudy G says leaking information about the bounties is treason. You can’t make this shit up. Fox covers CHOP, not bounties.

Ex-Mueller prosecutor says Roger Stone now key to removing Trump


Quote:
Andrew Weissmann, the Democratic Party donor who became Robert Mueller’s right-hand-man in trying to bring down President Trump, has a new way to get the president.

After suggesting on MSNBC that the Italian model was the method to oust Mr. Trump, he now believes Roger Stone holds the key. Mr. Trump on Friday commuted Stone’s three-plus-year prison sentence for lying to Congress.

“Time to put Roger Stone in the grand jury to find out what he knows about Trump but would not tell,” Mr. Weissmann tweeted about the long-time Trump political adviser. “Commutation can’t stop that.”

Appeals court revives House lawsuit for McGahn's testimony

WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal appeals court in Washington on Friday revived House Democrats' lawsuit to force former White House counsel Don McGahn to appear before a congressional committee, but left other legal issues unresolved with time growing short in the current Congress.

The full U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit voted 7-2 in ruling that the House Judiciary Committee can make its claims in court, reversing the judgment of a three-judge panel that would have ended the court fight.


The matter now returns to the panel for consideration of other legal issues. The current House of Representatives session ends on Jan. 3. That time crunch means “the chances that the Committee hears McGahn’s testimony anytime soon are vanishingly slim," dissenting Judge Thomas Griffith wrote. Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson also dissented.

The Judiciary Committee first subpoenaed McGahn in April 2019 as it examined potential obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump during special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. Trump directed McGahn not to appear and the Democratic-led panel filed a federal lawsuit to force McGahn to testify.

A trial judge ruled in November that the president’s close advisers do not have the absolute immunity from testifying to Congress that the administration claimed. Griffith and Henderson formed the majority when the appellate panel said in February that the Constitution forbids federal courts from refereeing this kind of dispute between the other two branches of government.

On Friday, the full court said the panel reached the wrong decision. Lawmakers can ask the courts “for judicial enforcement of congressional subpoenas when necessary," Judge Judith Rogers wrote.

Congress needs detailed information about the executive branch for both oversight and impeachment, she wrote.

House lawmakers had sought McGahn’s testimony because he was a vital witness for Mueller, whose report detailed the president’s outrage over the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and Trump’s efforts to curtail it.

In interviews with Mueller’s team, McGahn described being called at home by the president on the night of June 17, 2017, and being directed to call the Justice Department and say Mueller had conflicts of interest and should be removed. McGahn declined the command, deciding he would resign rather than carry it out, the report said.

Once that episode became public in the news media, Mueller’s report said, the president demanded that McGahn dispute the news stories and asked him why he had told Mueller about it and why he had taken notes of their conversations. McGahn refused to back down.

If McGahn is ever to testify, it's unclear his testimony would include any new revelations beyond what Mueller has already released. Mueller concluded that he could not exonerate Trump on obstruction of justice but also that there was insufficient evidence to prove a criminal conspiracy between Trump’s campaign and Russia.

Ignoring intel report, Trump eyes diplomatic favor for Russia
On the one hand, Trump says "nobody has been tougher on Russia" than him. On the other, he's eager to hand Putin an unearned diplomatic reward.

By Steve Benen
Late last week, the Trump administration confirmed a striking revelation: four years after Russia targeted U.S. elections to help put Donald Trump in power, Kremlin-linked operatives are once again taking active and deliberate steps to boost the Republican ticket, in part by trying to sabotage Joe Biden's candidacy.

Within hours of the release of the report from William Evanina, the director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center, the incumbent American president inexplicably declared, "I think that the last person Russia wants to see in office is Donald Trump because nobody has been tougher on Russia than I have, ever."

When a reporter reminded the president that his own country's intelligence proves otherwise, Trump replied, "Well, I don't care what anybody says."

To be sure, it's tough to argue with a posture like that one.

But as it turns out, Trump wasn't done, going even further during a White House press briefing yesterday. "You know who else is not happy with us winning?" the president asked reporters rhetorically. "Russia."

Trump wielding presidency like an autocrat: to preserve his power
This is, of course, the exact opposite of what his own administration just put in writing for the world to see.

It was at the same briefing, however, that the Republican decided to step all over his own argument.

President Donald Trump said Monday that he wants to host the Group of Seven leading industrialized nations after the November presidential election and still wants to invite Russia, which was kicked out of the G-7 after it annexed Crimea.

How oddly perfect.

On the one hand, Trump wants voters to believe that "nobody has been tougher on Russia" than him, overwhelming evidence to the contrary notwithstanding, and that Russia is eager to see him lose, despite his own administration's intelligence. But on the other hand, there's the Republican president, looking to deliver an unearned diplomatic reward for Vladimir Putin, for reasons unknown.

If Trump doesn't want his talking points to be laughable, he'll need to do bette
