Trump Unleashes Pathetic Unhinged Rant After McCabe Report Released

On Friday, the Inspector General released the DOJ’s justification for rushing to fire Andrew McCabe just says before he was slated to retire — a spiteful move on the part of the Trump administration intended to punish the former FBI Deputy Director for not playing ball. CNN reports:

In addition, the inspector general determined that McCabe was not authorized to disclose the existence of the investigation because it was not within the department’s “public interest” exception for disclosing ongoing investigations. The inspector general said that the disclosure to the Journal was made “in a manner designed to advance his personal interests at the expense of department leadership.”

The instances the inspector general cited were McCabe’s conversations with federal investigators and also with then-FBI Director James Comey in October 2016.

Naturally, Trump is very happy about this. In a celebratory tweet, The Donald said that McCabe “LIED! LIED! LIED!” and of course worked “No collusion” into his pathetic, desperate tweet:

“In written submissions to the OIG and DOJ, we demonstrated that the charges were unsupported by the evidence and that the OIG’s conclusions and the FBI-OPR proposal to terminate Mr. McCabe were unjustified,” McCabe’s attorney, Michael Bromwich in response to the report, adding that it  “utterly failed to support the decision to terminate Mr. McCabe.”

“The rushed decision to terminate Mr. McCabe was not only unfair to him and to his family; it has sent a profoundly troubling message to the DOJ and FBI workforce about the harshness and lack of proportionality of the disciplinary process,” Bromwich added. “That troubling message was reinforced, and made toxic, by the president’s celebratory tweet hours after Mr. McCabe’s termination.”

Naturally, Americans aren’t at all fooled by this obvious malicious act intended to discredit the people investigating Trump’s involvement with Russia:

In other news, Trump pardoned ex-Cheney aide Scooter Libby on Friday. Libby was convicted of obstruction of justice and perjury in 2007 — you know, because he “LIED! LIED! LIED!” about the leak of a CIA officer’s identity. Also on Friday, the FBI confirmed a criminal investigation into Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen.

The Trump presidency could be reasonably considered farcical if it wasn’t tearing our country apart.

SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh said he would ‘put the nail’ in independent counsel ruling

In a 2016 video, Judge Kavanaugh argued that he would overturn Morrison v. Olson, a Supreme Court ruling that underpins the appointment of independent counsels. The ruling largely fell out of favor after Ken Starr’s turn in the Clinton era. As FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver points out, however, Kavanaugh volunteered the example by himself, revealing something about his views on Supreme Court precedent.

Sarah Sanders: We’re working on “bold reforms” to stop Russian election interference

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the Trump administration is working on “bold reforms” to ensure Russian interference in US elections never happens again.

Sanders was asked if Trump sees Russian meddling in the 2016 election as “an attack on democracy.”

The President has faced continued furor over his remarks about election meddling made alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday in Helsinki.

Here’s what Sanders said today:

The President thinks that we have to focus on securing our election integrity and our election systems, which is why he has spent so much time with his administration making sure that this doesn’t happen again. Let’s not forget this didn’t happen under President Trump’s watch. This happened under the Obama administration. We’re taking steps, we’re making bold reforms to try to fix this and make sure it never happens again.

Here’s what the White House says Trump and Putin talked about in their private meeting

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders listed a number of topics that were included in President Trump’s private one-on-one meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

Sanders listed Syrian humanitarian aid, Israeli security, North Korea, denuclearization, Ukraine and the occupation of Crimea, reducing Russian and US nuclear arsenals, and “your favorite topic” Russian interference in elections.

Sanders said the meeting reflected the “beginning of the dialogue with Russia and our administration and theirs and we’re going to continue working through those things.”

Sanders also said Putin’s proposal of having Russian prosecutors question US officials, including former US ambassador to Russia Mike McFaul, arose in Trump’s meeting, but she said no agreements were reached.

“He said it was an interesting idea. He didn’t commit to anything,” Sanders said. “We’ve committed to nothing.”
