historians predict more treasonous transcripts


During an interview with MSNBC’s AM Joy, Meacham said that the last week has created an environment where people on the inside can feel more comfortable blowing the whistle on this president’s treasonous behavior.

As a result, Meacham said, “I think it’s highly possible … that in seven days we will be talking about conversations with other world leaders, other outreach, where the president of the United States has decided that our national sovereignty is less significant than his own political performance.”

Robert De Niro Hopes Trump Is Impeached: ‘He’s Such A Low Life’


Robert De Niro was not afraid to express his support for the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

“I hope he gets impeached, it has to be followed through,” De Niro told Variety’s Marc Malkin at the New York Film Festival opening night premiere of the Netflix film “The Irishman.” “He’s such a low life… He taints everybody around him.”

Trump Releases 2020 Campaign Ad With Completely 'Fabricated' Lie About Biden




According to Tim Murtaugh, director of communications for Trump's 2020 campaign, the video is part of a new $10 million ad buy, including $2 million kicked in by the Republican National Committee.

As law requires, Trump's voice played over the final moment of the ad, issued by his 2020 reelection campaign, with the message: "I'm Donald Trump and I approved this message."

As is true of many falsehoods put forth by Trump, however, the false and misleading claims against Biden and his son are based on unfounded conspiracy theories circulating within the right-wing echo chamber. And the president's insistence on spreading them—given all the available documentation and reporting—appears like willful deceit on the part of his campaign.

For Trump followers and Republican supporters, however, it very much appeared successful. Just a quick perusal of right-wing responses to the video included these reactions and countless more like them: "The mainstream media establishment cannot be trusted to report the facts."; "Do not EVER take down this pinned tweet please. God bless President Trump."; and "Please retweet. Many Americans still don't know how corrupt the democrats are."

Meanwhile, those who understand the actual facts around the case, experienced the campaign ad in a wholly different way.

"Not positive," tweeted journalist Judd Legum in response, "but I think this is the world's first political ad that brags about committing an impeachable offense."

But the major issue with the ad? It's entire premise is a big—and very easily discredited—lie. And while not surprising, the new ad, especially as it comes on the heals of House Democrats' announcement of a formal impeachment inquiry into the president earlier this week, offers a glimpse of how Trump will run his 2020 campaign – whether its against Biden or any other candidate.

tweet of the hour


"the ones he singles out as "Savages" are two Jews and four women of color."

See how he does that? More than 200 House Democrats support impeachment, but the ones he singles out as “Savages” are two Jews and four women of color.


'I wish he would shut the heck up': Republicans sour on Giuliani



‘I wish he would shut the heck up’: Republicans sour on Giuliani
Even some of president's closest Hill allies say Giuliani isn't helping the president.

Republicans had enough headaches to deal with this week. Then Hurricane Rudy blew into town.

As the GOP scrambles to contain the fallout from President Donald Trump’s Ukraine controversy, Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani has inserted himself directly into the center of a crisis that has engulfed the White House and brought impeachment closer to Trump’s doorstep. And Republicans want him to stop.

"I have great respect for Mr. Giuliani, but I said this yesterday and take it for what it's worth: He's wild as a March hare,” said Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.). “He's like a lot of senators, he's kind of a free range chicken, he kind of gets out there. What he says is his business, I don't speak for him."

Others put it more bluntly.

“I think it would be a good thing if he would go take a vacation,” a senior GOP lawmaker told POLITICO, one of several who declined to go on the record so they could speak critically of Giuliani.

Even some of Trump’s top allies on Capitol Hill don’t think Giuliani is doing the president or the party any favors by being such a constant presence in the media.

“Rudy’s saying a lot of things and I’m not sure he’s helping the president by being on TV every 15 minutes,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told reporters this week.
