If that becomes the GOP strategy, Trump’s aides and advisers could be in trouble. If any of them are accused of crimes, without immunity they will be much more likely to find themselves at trial—and maybe even behind bars.

” “The whole story line is suspicious. Graham is one of the first GOP lawmakers to publicly downplay reports of Kushner’s conversation with Russian officials. The South Carolina senator added that he’s more skeptical of information coming out of Russia than ever before I’ve never been more concerned and suspicious about all things Russia than I am right now,” he said, adding: “We’re chasing our tails as a nation when it comes to the Russians.”

President Donald Trump was already struggling to fill hundreds of top legal jobs throughout the federal government. Over the past two weeks, that task became exponentially more difficult, according to top GOP lawyers. Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey and the subsequent string of allegations – from Trump demanding a pledge of loyalty from Comey and pressuring him to ease off a probe into his former aide, to revelations that Trump trashed Comey as a “nut job” in an Oval Office meeting with top Russian officials—have narrowed the ranks of people willing to serve. “They were dealing with a pool that had already shrunk and, now, of course, some people will be avoiding it like the plague,” said one well-connected GOP lawyer who held a top-level post in President George W. Bush’s administration and asked not to be named. “The lesser-known folks are wondering if they’re going to take a huge reputational hit if the president of the United States starts tweeting about them.

We generally use this space on Sundays to point out wrongdoing, abuses of power, or issues that we feel do not receive enough coverage. We generally try to do so with some degree of subtlety or humor. This isnt one of those times: North Carolina Republicans are a bunch of undemocratic racists and they ought to be ashamed of themselves. After a federal court had already slapped down their thinly disguised voter suppression lawsaying it targeted African-Americans with “ almost surgical precision ” — the Supreme Court also delivered a rebuke to their racially motivated gerrymandering . Even conservative Associate Justice Clarence Thomas agreed with the decision and wrote his own concurring opinion . If you’re keeping score, it’s Democracy 2 and Good OleBoy GOP Racists 0. Maybe the news here isnt that North Carolina’s GOP legislators are racists.

In the new suit, Doe claims he tried to report Hastert's attack in 1984 or 1985 at the office of the local prosecutor, Kendall County State's Attorney Dallas Ingemunson, a close political ally of Hastert. The suit, first reported by the local Kendall County Record newspaaper , alleges that Ingemunson brushed aside the effort to report the alleged crime. Ingemunson threatened to charge Plaintiff with a crime and accused him of slandering Hastert's name, the suit claims. Reached Saturday by POLITICO, Ingemunson said no such allegation was ever brought to him. It never occurred, the veteran lawyer and GOP political organizer said. I've never met the guy and never had any discussion with him. Ingemunson also said he believes it is impossible that any child molestation of that sort would have been reported to his office without him being told of it. If something like that had been brought to my office, I would know about it, he said.

And the GOP members made clear that the current rules of the committee still apply: That Nunes can issue the subpoenas ‘upon consultation with’ ranking Democrat Adam Schiff or by a vote of the full committee, according to several sources familiar with the matter.” http://cnn.it/2qZchcL TRUMP’S SATURDAY -- THE PRESIDENT is giving remarks this morning to military personnel at Naval Air Station Sigonella. From pooler Mike Shear of the New York Times: “[S]picer said that the POTUS speech would [likely] include some trip wrap-up stuff and ‘relationshipstuff relating to other countries. So not just a message to the troops.” THE WORLD STAGE -- “Trump brings his solo act to Europe : The president has seemed less at ease among his fellow world leaders in group settings than he is in one-on-one encounters,” by Tara Palmeri and David Herszenhorn in Taormina, Sicily: “While he avoided any major gaffes or serious diplomatic breaches, Trump’s lack of rapport with European leaders raises serious questions about his ability to effectively team up with critical U.

But after the pomp of presidential travel overseas, Trump will return to Washington to find the same problems that have dogged him. As a newly-appointed special counsel is beginning his investigation into links between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and close adviser, has become a focus of the probe, according to The Washington Post. His lawyer said Kushner will cooperate with investigators. James Comey, the former FBI director leading the Russian probe until Trump abruptly fired him, is still expected to testify before Congress about the memos he kept on conversations with the president that involved the investigation. The search for a new FBI director continues. And Trump's policy agenda has run into problems. The GOP health care bill that passed the House faces uncertain prospects in the Senate, after a Congressional Budget Office analysis that it would leave 23 million more Americans uninsured by 2026.

Of all the news I expected to break last night, "Republican GOP Candidate Assaults Reporter" was not up there. But, well, here we are: Of course, when I suggested that it was Probably A Bad Thing for an American candidate for public office to go around assaulting people who ask him questions, Twitter informed me that, Actually, This Was Just The Liberal Media Making Stuff Up Again, SMDH. I guess Fox News didn't get the memo : At that point, Gianforte grabbed Jacobs by the neck with both hands and slammed him into the ground behind him. Faith, Keith and I watched in disbelief as Gianforte then began punching the reporter. As Gianforte moved on top of Jacobs, he began yelling something to the effect of, "I'm sick and tired of this!" Jacobs scrambled to his knees and said something about his glasses being broken. He asked Faith, Keith and myself for our names.
