    Trump Junior’s reply to email promising Russian dirt on Clinton:
    “If it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer.”
    “Four days later, after a flurry of emails, the intermediary wrote back, proposing a meeting in New York on Thursday with a “Russian government attorney.” https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/11/us/politics/trump-russia-email-clinton.html

      Rachel interviewee last night said he knows the Russian Attorney who met with Junior, Kushner and Manafort — and
      she is a serial liar. What bugged me this morning (I had to check it out) was on Whoopi Goldberg’s ABC show: Their
      panel ‘discussion’ never mentioned that the motive was to spread lies about Hillary in favor of Trump’s election.. They
      allowed Junior lying on camera to go first with no response, e.g. from Schiff. Proceeded to water it all down. Then that
      little extreme right GOP toadie Jedediah Bila read a ‘summary’ of the Russian lawyer’s statements. Words like ‘treason’
      never came up. ABC whitewashed it as much as they could right away.

      • July 11, 2017 at 1:50 pm

        Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer with reported links to the Kremlin says she is not part of the Russian government. However according to NYT the emails to Junior told him he’d be meeting with a “Russian government attorney”.

          I watched her interview and one of the strangest things she said was that she got a call from someone she didn’t know to go to a meeting at TRUMP tower with a group of people she didn’t know. That right there tells me she lying in a way that she hopes will keep her out of legal jeopardy but if she’s still in the US, she should lawyer up.

        • July 11, 2017 at 3:19 pm

          Sadly have come across a view of Americans (Russians and others) that Americans are spoiled therefore gullible and stupid.
          To Putin and probably this lawyer Vesenitskaya – telling obvious lies is just seen as good game show chuckle worthy

    I love this piece, a simple, moderate list of just SOME of the highlights of the goodnesses actions successes accomplishments and blessings of POTUS’s time in Office. When we had a President, when there was a Commander in Chief of incomparable goodness and strength and honor. No one here will be surprised by this list, no one here professes to have “suffered”, and we should NOT need to put such messages out there in the world because liars lie. But they do and they do it with skill and purpose, so the thoughtful, clear, beautiful refutations we can share mean the world to me. This will remind some, educate some, and hearten the many who knew, know, will never forget. They can lie and cheat and steal and show who they are, and fool a lot of fools, but they can never undo the truth of who our President is, what he did, and where we went because of him. I love President Obama, yesterday today and tomorrow.

    From NW’s post above: “Early warning signs of Fascism” – in the US Holocaust Museum:
    “Powerful and Continuing nationalism, disdain for human rights, identification of enemis as a unifying cause, supremacy of the military, rampant sexism, controlled mass media, obsession with national security, religion and government intertwined, corporate power protected, labor power suppressed, disdain for intellectuals and the Arts, obsession with crime and punishment, rampany cronyism and corruption, fraudulent elections.”
    –Just thinking the list is short enough that maybe Trumputin actually read it.
    –As he crosses off the points he can take pride in becoming a famous successor and devotee of Hitler.

      IMO just as GOP tried to repeal the ACA 65 times at great cost to taxpayers: They will keep on and on an on and on and on
      wasting time + distracting with McConnell’s gross Death Care. No limit to its uses. It distracts from other pressing issue and
      gets Americans upset enough that the rest of the Rug being pulled doesn’t have enough air time. Keeps millions on their knees
      BEGGING for what other developed nations have had for many decades — life saving health care.
      Built for continuous replay only.

      Earlier today, BJE, (before Junior’s email tweet), @CBSradionews said that Dems would have to agree to postpone August recess (which they’re unlikely to do), which allows McTurtle to blame Dems on BCRA failure, not on the GOP, whose aim is to pillage, plunder and torture this country’s citizens.

      Haven’t had a chance to follow up to see if this is true.

      If anyone here knows, please post a comment.

    These people are all nuts.


    Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Sanders read a statement from President Trump Tuesday regarding the release of the emails that led up to Don Jr.’s June meeting with a Russian attorney: “My son is a high-quality person, and I applaud his transparency,” wrote Trump. Highlights from the off-camera briefing:

    When was the last time Trump spoke with Don Jr.? “I don’t know,” said Sanders, before referring all other Trump Jr. questions to his outside counsel. “I don’t have anything else to add.”

    On words like “treason” and “perjury” being thrown around: “I think those new words are ridiculous.”

    Does Kushner still have full security clearance? Sanders wouldn’t say.

    Were there any other meetings between Russians and the Trump campaign? “There’s nothing that I’m aware of at this time.”

    On stock market’s nosedive after release of Don Jr. emails: Trump is doing everything he can to grow the economy.

    Why is the briefing increasingly being held off-camera? Off-camera is “one of the many ways we choose” to communicate.

    • July 11, 2017 at 3:29 pm

      IMO the KOCH right wing has been trying to junk the American economy notably since 2009.
      Trumputin calling his son’s behavior “transparency” is part of that No-Truth double fobble GOP lie game. He is probably more
      concerned with keeping Kushner (the purveyor of Everything) who was at the treasonous meeting with Russia – out of the media.

      This just happened to a coffee farmer in Hawaii. Father of 3, respected in community, age 43, been here since he was 15… sent to Mexico w/o any family left there. Was in the news yesterday. Cannot fathom what we are doing to these poor families/ people’s lives. I will hate Donald Trump and all his effing Nazi’s including ICE, until the end of time just for these deportations alone.

    COVER-UPS will abound: Senior reporter Catherine Herridgefor Fox News edited out any mention of “Russian” while reporting on Junior’s emails. Meanwhile, ABC’s “The View” failed to mention the Russian Government’s motive in helping to elect Trumputin by funneling anti-Hillary
    info into the media. “The View” immediately showed videos of Junior (lying) that went unchallenged…and then Republican Jedediah Bila summarized Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya’s cover-up statements…also unchallenged.

    It cannot be stressed enough – the reaction from republicans if ANYONE with the slightest relationship to the Obama Administration had acted in the way of Trump jnr & associates. Impeachment would have started.

    Everything they accuse others of, is what they would do and do do themselves.
