Donald Trump Jr.'s testimony to Congress about his family's real estate negotiations with powerful Russians does not comport with the new version laid out by Donald Trump's ex-attorney Michael Cohen, official transcripts show.​
Trump Jr. told the Senate Judiciary Committee in September 2017 that although there had been negotiations surrounding a prospective Trump Tower in Moscow, they concluded without result "at the end" of 2014.​
"But not in 2015 or 2016?" Trump Jr. was asked.​
"Certainly not '16," he said. "There was never a definitive end to it. It just died of deal fatigue."​

I don't read the National Review that much, but someone on Reddit posted a link to the article in regards to what happened yesterday. The comments are hilarious or sad depending on how you look at it. So many people still in denial or still bringing up Obama and Clinton. NatsFan especially seems to be missing a few screws. Others just deflect or show a complete lack of knowledge regarding law enforcement, mostly complaining about the scope of the investigation now being financial rather than directly something to do with the election. They somehow believe finding something else illegal during the course of an investigation should just be ignored lol.

Not the onion lol


Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto presented Jared Kushner with the Order of the Aztec Eagle, the highest honor the government can bestow on foreigners — ruffling the feathers of critics back home angry with President Trump.
Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser received the award Friday before the start of the G20 summit in Buenos Aires for his “significant contributions in achieving the renegotiation of the new agreement between Mexico, the United States and Canada,” according to Mexico’s foreign ministry.

My facebook feed started blowing up with that crap a few weeks back.

The ultimate delusion of victimhood. Christmas music starts blaring the minute we put the Halloween decorations away, but sure, there's a "war on Xmas".

Here's a tip, maybe we're all just sick of the fact that people go full on Christmas for 2 full months, and dilute the true meaning and special part of the holidays?

I agree, and this is coming from someone who likes Christmas music. It shouldn’t start until after thanksgiving.

We have Christmas in July sales and TV Movies. All evidence point to Christmas forcing itself on us.

It's from 2011 but it still proves they had been talking to people about making deals.

Christmas music should be played from December 21st through December 23rd. That is all.

Republicans in North Carolina district are looking like they committed voter fraud. The election may be redone.

https://splinternews.com/republican-candidate-may-have-literally-stolen-ballots-1830778885

"
The board is collecting sworn statements from voters in rural Bladen County, near the South Carolina border, who described people coming to their doors and urging them to hand over their absentee ballots, sometimes without filling them out. Others described receiving absentee ballots by mail that they had not requested. It is illegal to take someone else’s ballot and turn it in.

Among the allegations is that an individual who worked for the Harris campaign coordinated the effort to fill in, or discard, the ballots of Democratic voters who might have otherwise voted for McCready. Several of the affidavits come from elderly African-American voters.

"

Most of the people they went to were elderly black voters.

But Trump 'Tells it like it is'.

This is becoming almost a weird platitude or something that I hear all the time. Usually followed by emphasis that Diplomacy is dumb.

GOVERNMENT WOULDN’T UNSEAL MICHAEL COHEN’S WARRANTS BECAUSE “MANY UNCHARGED PERSONS ARE NAMED IN THE MATERIALS”
Let’s see: Cooperating witness, check (Cohen first proffered to Mueller on August 7). Crimes under investigation not already identified, check. Lots of evidence co-conspirators don’t know about, check. The other people being investigated … hmmm.​
Indeed, the government’s second reason to keep the warrants sealed is to protect the privacy interests of third parties who are named in the search warrant, but not charged. The response stated clearly that “many uncharged individuals and entities are named in the” search warrants and other documents.​
