Well, when you explain the whole joke it isn't as funny anymore.

re: The Offical Trump Presidency Thread: Don Jr & Russians

If Trump was hoping the special counsel would stop the tide of bad news, he's gonna be disappointed.

The law enforcement investigation into possible coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign has identified a current White House official as a significant person of interest, showing that the probe is reaching into the highest levels of government, according to people familiar with the matter.

The senior White House adviser under scrutiny by investigators is someone close to the president, according to these people, who would not further identify the official.

The revelation comes as the investigation also appears to be entering a more overtly active phase, with investigators shifting from work that has remained largely hidden from the public to conducting interviews and using a grand jury to issue subpoenas. The intensity of the probe is expected to accelerate in the coming weeks, the people said.

The sources emphasized that investigators remain keenly interested in people who previously wielded influence in the Trump campaign and administration but are no longer part of it, including former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
Kushner?

I'm assuming its Bannon, who makes an easy scapegoat for the administration.

Two scoops timed precisely for the moment Donald Trump gets on Air Force One for a transatlantic trip.

And right before that:

I wonder if Melania & Ivanka will wear a headscarves while in Saudi Arabia?

In 2015, the Obamas were in Saudi Arabia to attend the funeral of King Abdullah and............

Does anyone like Lieberman other than John McCain?

And how did Lieberman, 75 years old and with no law enforcement experience, become a credible candidate for leading the FBI?

This didn't come out of left field, it came out of a field 1,000 miles away.
Lieberman is a terrible choice, but he was the Attorney General of Connecticut back in the 80s, so it's not true that he has no law enforcement experience.

re: The Offical Trump Presidency Thread: Don Jr & Russians

God he does not help himself, his followers like Poliezi say "Comey wasn't trustworthy anymore its obvious that's why he was fired" then Trump comes and says "no it was because i don't want people looking into Russia anymore" It must be extremely exhausting being his supporter when there is nothing to cling to or defend..

Anyone who defends this piece of shit and still considers themselves to be a patriotic American is a hypocrite in deep denial.

I'm going guess the funds are coming from the same place that they did when Obama/Bush/Clinton took hundreds of people with them on presidential trips. Just guessing though.

Who needs a thousand person entourage? I have your answer. It is Captain Wussy and his band of buffoons.

Are you taking over for dvdpolizei while it appears he is on "vacation" from Trump discussion?

Agreed. He has the gall to call Comey a "nut job" when he is the biggest nut out there. Absolutely amazed at his level of narcissism. I deal with crazy people on occasion...people that I look at and go "whoa... they need some help". Trump takes that to a whole new level.

I've never seen someone, ever...in more denial about his surroundings. He cares about noone but himself and will screw anyone and everyone to get there. He is not about helping the American people in any way, shape or form. All he looks for is to blame others for his behavior and perceived persecution.

His administration should be very scared and absolutely ashamed of what they are, who they support and what they've created.

The frightening part of the "nut job" story. His supporters, don't see ANYTHING wrong with what he did. Their reaction, "he's right, he is a nut job" They're in complete denial.

You might want to look into the number of people Trump is taking on this trip and compare it to the number of people who travelled with Obama or Bush. Trump's number is significantly higher (in part because any given Trump person is afraid to be out of his sight for a week for fear of falling out of favor).

re: The Offical Trump Presidency Thread: Don Jr & Russians

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan watched Tuesday as men believed to be members of his security detail attacked protesters in the nation’s capital.

Erdogan sat in the back seat of a vehicle near the Turkish ambassador's residence as his supporters charged into the protest crowd.

He exited the vehicle and looked directly toward the melee feet away.


The revelation of Erdogan's proximity to the incident came in a video posted to Facebook on Thursday afternoon by Voice of America's Turkish division.

Before the violent confrontation, Erdogan had earlier on Tuesday met with President Donald Trump at the White House.

A police officer and 11 other people were injured in the confrontation, authorities say, one critically.

The State Department condemned the attack Wednesday, and police in the nation’s capital said they were working to identify the assailants, some of whom were armed.

“We witnessed what appeared to be a brutal attack on peaceful protesters,” said Peter Newsham, chief of the Metropolitan Police Department in the nation’s capital.

“That’s not something that we tolerate here in Washington, D.C.,” he said.

Newsham said “there could be a diplomatic immunity issue, but that won’t prevent us from doing what we need to do,” saying officers had identified some assailants.

The protest group included Armenian and Kurdish activists opposed to Erdogan, two of whom were arrested in the immediate aftermath. One was charged with aggravated assault and the other with assaulting an officer.

Scholars say it may be possible for men on the Turkish government payroll to face criminal charges, especially if they are not accredited as diplomats with the State Department and permanently stationed in the U.S.

Police on Thursday referred questions about possible charges to the U.S. attorney’s office.

"We are working with the Metropolitan Police Department to review the events that took place outside the Turkish Embassy. We typically do not comment on ongoing investigations, and have no comment at this time," says Bill Miller, a spokesman for the prosecutor's office.
Trump has yet to speak out about foreign bodyguards beating up our citizens. Whatever happened to America first?
