Barr seemed fine with Trump yesterday, maintaining he’d decided on his own on the Stone sentencing recommendation and belittling the career prosecutors. Why the sudden shot across Trump’s bow? Some new development? Perhaps WH Counsel asking DOJ to prepare pardon papers for Stone?
Disgusting. NSA O'Brien:“We’re not a country where a bunch of lieutenant colonels can get together and decide what the policy is of the United States. We are not a banana republic.” Offers NO evidence the Vindmans were doing any such thing. Simple slander. https://t.co/Ltk9KweJr8
"A handful of Republican senators tried to stop President Trump from firing Gordon Sondland...The senators did not express the same concern about Lt. Col. Vindman." Perfectly on brand for GOP Senators to care more for a big donor than a patriotic soldier. https://t.co/t1MNeF0F8R
This new ad, a collaboration of @mormonweg & @fortheruleoflaw, will air next week in Utah and nationally. Utah Republicans say to Mitt Romney: "You did the right thing. And we're so proud to stand with you for the Constitution and the country." https://t.co/RCv4GVGXyP
“How many Americans know that Sanders is...a former supporter of [a party] which wanted to abolish the federal defense budget and supported “solidarity” with revolutionary regimes like Iran’s and Cuba’s? Do people know that he...praised the Soviet Union?” https://t.co/0uQKAo2asH
I assume the Republican senators in the “it was inappropriate (though he shouldn’t be removed from office)” camp will introduce a resolution censuring the president for his inappropriate conduct, and warning him, since he’ll still be in office, about doing anything like it again.
“No wonder Trump’s lawyers so vehemently opposed Bolton’s being subpoenaed. No wonder they’ve been plotting...to make sure that, if Bolton does testify, he does so in secret....No wonder none of the president’s lawyers dared utter the word ‘Bolton.’” https://t.co/PXIUt184MW
For a guy whose acquittal is supposedly a cinch, Trump seems pretty alarmed by the possibility of "due process, proper representation, or witnesses" in the Senate (which he by the way sort of acknowledges should happen, by claiming it didn't happen but should have in the House). https://t.co/y3Tdzw0wOr
