The lawlessness and stonewalling of the Nixon Administration. Put these two together and you have the Trump Administration, the CC administration: Cover Up and Corruption. The Washington Post broke this […]

By Cynthia Citron LOS ANGELES –A friend once described him as “ugly and charismatic at the same time.” He was also powerful, ruthless, and an inveterate liar.

Vice President Mike Pence’s trip to Ireland — or more precisely his curious stay at one of President Trump’s hotels — has prompted multiple congressional probes.

Democrats […]

Lewandowski’s testimony will let Democrats build Nixon-like articles of impeachment: Ex-prosecutor 18.9.2019 Raw Story

The Democrats’ weird quasi-impeachment process is basically as bad as doing nothing 17.9.2019 Raw Story
House Democrats are finally pursuing an impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump. Or maybe not. It depends on whom you ask, and when. “The House Judiciary Committee on Thursday advanced a resolution that some Democrats say amounts to opening an impeachment inquiry while others say it means nothing,” reported The Huffington Post last week. A day earlier, The New York […]
Elizabeth Warren Draws Largest Crowd So Far 17.9.2019 Crooks Liars
If candidate enthusiasm were the true measure of campaign success, then Elizabeth Warren is doing very well indeed. It was said after her speech last night she took selfie pics with her fans for four hours. Source: Politics USA Donald Trump measures political success on two imperfect metrics – poll numbers and crowd sizes – and Elizabeth Warren appears to be crushing it on both counts. During a major speech at a rally in New York on Monday night, a massive crowd of 20,000 turned out to hear Warren tear into the unprecedented corruption of the Trump era. The Massachusetts senator called Donald Trump “corruption in the flesh.” Pictures show a capacity crowd packing into New York City’s Washington Square Park, which is just three miles from Trump Tower: Donald Trump is corruption in the flesh. But our problems didn't start with Donald Trump. A country that elects Donald Trump is already in serious trouble. #WarrenNYC ...

Felicity Huffman’s $15,000 is chump change — America’s biggest bribery scandal is a whole lot worse 17.9.2019 Raw Story
The American media world—both social media and “news” media—is afire with the news that actor Felicity Huffman is going to jail for spending $15,000 to bribe her daughter’s way into college. But a much bigger bribery scandal is played out every day in America with nary a peep from the media. It’s the way billionaires […]

Critics slam Trump’s ‘pathological obsession’ with Obama — and what it reveals about his ‘disturbing’ psyche 17.9.2019 Raw Story
Apparently out of nowhere Monday morning, President Donald Trump launched into multiple bizarre and ridiculous Twitter attacks on his predecessor, Barack Obama. Still sour about the Russia investigation and the ongoing probes into his businesses and conduct, he demanded that House Democrats investigate Obama’s book deal and partnership with Netflix, despite no signs of impropriety of […]
Elizabeth Warren Tackles Judicial Corruption 17.9.2019 Crooks Liars
It didn't get much press at the time but Trump's sister, a federal judge, retired shortly after that NY Times story about the family's tax fraud was published, effectively ending an official investigation into the family finances. Elizabeth Warren cleverly uses this case as an example of one reform she is proposing. It's a bold move both politically and substantively: In a Medium post published Monday , the Massachusetts Democrat proposes closing the loophole that “allows federal judges to escape investigations for misconduct by stepping down from their post.” In outlining the idea, Warren specifically references a case involving Trump’s sister Maryanne Trump-Barry, whose retirement brought an abrupt end to an investigation into her role in various tax schemes of the family and potential fraud therein. “Under my plan, investigations will remain open until their findings are made public and any penalties for misconduct are issued,” Warren writes in the ...

Senator Chris Coons Agitates For War With Iran 17.9.2019 Crooks Liars
Help me understand, gentle readers. Why would any Democrat go on Fox and Friends first thing Monday morning to back up Trump's war tweets ? And why would any Democrat utter the following words in response to Yemen blowing the crap out of a Saudi Arabian oil facility: "This may well be the thing that calls for military action against Iran, if that's what the intelligence supports."' Yes, that is Delaware Senator Chris Coons, serving himself up on Fox & Friends to monger some war with Iran, just like the jerk in the White House. Forget about the Saudis, their corruption, the way MBS pals around with Jared Kushner, the way they wantonly murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi, chopped him up in pieces and dumped the body parts wherever they dumped them. Forget the way they murder Yemeni children in the name of religion. Forget it all because oil is the point. I expect that kind of idiocy from Republicans, but no Democrat anywhere should, in this day and age, let those words drop from his ...
We now know Senate Republicans sandbagged the FBI’s investigation of Kavanaugh 17.9.2019 Raw Story
Two days before Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court, I wrote that the Republicans were poisoning its legitimacy and the Democrats must redeem it. I said doing so required questioning the high court’s integrity, foremost the integrity of the “due process” that was installing Brett Kavanaugh. On October 4, 2018, I wrote: There is in fact a […]
