Eric Swalwell: All Evidence I’ve Seen Shows Trump Is a Russian Agent

CHRISTOPHER MATTHEWS: Let’s talk about the materiality [of BuzzFeed’s report] here. How material was this to the role of the president of the United States. To cover up a business deal, told one of his people to lie about it. Is that relevant to his role as head of state? Tell me how. REP. ERIC SWALWELL: This is Watergate plus, right? Watergate was more of a domestic issue, rule of law at stake, the articles involved, contempt of Congress, obstruction of justice, and abuse of power. Here, if you step…

Dems Who Pushed BuzzFeed Report Silent After Special Counsel Statement

Democrats who pushed BuzzFeed’s anonymously-sourced report that President Trump had instructed his former lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress were silent Friday evening after Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office issued a statement disputing the report. “BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony are not accurate,” Special Counsel spokesman Peter Carr said in a statement. Hours before Mueller’s statement, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) issued a statement, suggesting the president may…

The memo, however,…

Mueller’s Flynn Memo Disappoints Resisters: No Jail Time or Hints of Collusion

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s memo on former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn left members of the so-called “resistance” disappointed that the retired three star Army general would likely not face any jail time, and no collusion was detailed. Leading up to its release, resisters were giddy over the idea the man who led a “Lock her up!” chant on the campaign trail would find himself behind bars. Mueller’s memo instead praised him for his substantial cooperation and “exemplary” service in uniform, leaving some angry. I cannot express how disappointed…

Report: Friction Between Mueller, Manafort Teams Led to Plea Deal Collapse

Paul Manafort’s lawyers kept a joint defense agreement with President Trump’s lawyers even after they accepted a plea deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, which kept Trump’s team informed of the investigation and led to the plea deal’s collapse on Monday, according to a report. One of Trump’s lawyers, Rudy Giuliani, confirmed to the New York Times on Tuesday that Manafort’s lawyers had repeatedly briefed Trump’s lawyers on Trump’s former campaign chairman’s discussions with federal investigators. The arrangement was not illegal, but “highly unusual” and “inflamed tensions” between Manafort’s lawyers…

Special Counsel: Paul Manafort Breached Plea Deal, Lied to Investigators

The Office of Special Counsel said in a court filing Monday that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort made false statements during a series of interviews with investigators — after negotiating a plea agreement — as part of its probe into collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. “After signing the plea agreement, Manafort committed federal crimes by lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Special Counsel’s Office on a variety of subject matters, which constitute breaches of the agreement,” wrote prosecutors working for the special counsel.” The…

Trump After Meeting with Rod Rosenstein: Democrats Colluded with Russia

President Donald Trump struck a positive tone on the special counsel investigation after meeting with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Monday, telling reporters he believed he would be treated “very fairly” and that “Democrats colluded with Russia.” “I think we’ll be treated very fairly. Everybody understands there was no collusion. There’s no Russia. It was all made up by the Democrats. They’re the ones that colluded with Russia. The Democrats colluded with Russia.
