Michael Flynn Pleading The Fifth Amendment Is Funny, Considering How He And Trump Felt About That Last Year…

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikDonald Trump

no title

Well, shit.

If the investigation into Donald Trump does yield new corruption (you know, in addition to all the obstruction of justice), it won't be from the testimony of Michael Flynn.

The short-term national security adviser who lied about his communications with Russia during Trump's transition has just stalled his own investigation by announcing he will plead the fifth amendment.

Flynn's attorneys wrote a letter to the Senate intelligence committee that seems to claim the move is justified not because he's guilty but because he's worried about being prosecuted anyway amid the "escalating public frenzy against him."

So nothing in his documents is evidence of any crime, but it all makes him look more guilty? Hmm…

House Representative Officially Requests The Impeachment Of Donald Trump! Is This The Beginning Of The End?

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikDonald Trump

no title

Donald Trump has been quite the "active" president so far — from destroying our healthcare to replacing the White House swamp with an oil refinery.

But after POTUS fired FBI Director James Comey, the man investigating his ties to Russia, then spilled top secret U.S. intelligence to Russian officials — well, that took the cake (the most beautiful piece you've ever seen) for some very upset congressionals.

Now, it looks like Trump's presidency might reach its climax prematurely (LOL) in light of his recent actions, as a House Representative has called for his impeachment!

On Wednesday morning, Rep. Al Green became the first member of Congress to officially request impeaching the Big Giant Peach.

The Democratic Rep. of Texas said it was the House's "duty" to take up impeachment, telling the House floor:

Bombshell Memo Says Donald Trump Asked Comey To Drop The Investigation Into Michael Flynn's Ties To Russia!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersPolitikDonald TrumpGIFs

Holy shit. This is obstruction of justice. This HAS to be actionable, right?

Not only did Donald Trump ask then FBI director James Comey if he was being investigated, not only did he allegedly ask for his loyalty in a private dinner, but apparently he ASKED HIM TO DROP THE INVESTIGATION of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn!

The NY Times is reporting Comey wrote a memo in February detailing a meeting in the Oval Office the day after Flynn resigned in which Drumpf said to him:

"I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go."

We're no lawyers, but that's close enough to a request to be wholly unethical.

And it's bad enough that the White House is denying it! In a statement, they said:

Fired Acting Attorney General Sally Yates Testifies On Russian Election Interference, Michael Flynn, & Donald Trump's 'Unlawful' Muslim Ban

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikDonald TrumpGirl Power

no title

Sally Yates goes under oath.

As you may remember, the acting attorney general was fired by President Donald Trump after she refused to defend his new immigrant ban targeting seven Muslim-majority nations.

On Monday, the former DOJ member took the stand to testify on her experience regarding the travel ban, Michael Flynn, and Russia's speculated involvement in the 2016 presidential election.

Here's what you missed.

Yates reiterated her opinion that the travel ban (which she found out about through the media, BTW) was unconstitutional and "unlawful" as it discriminated based on religion:

Donald Trump Uses His Press Conference With Israeli Prime Minister To Talk Michael Flynn's 'Very, Very Unfair' Scandal & Hillary Clinton's 'Terrible Loss'!

no title

Donald Trump promises we're "going to see a lot of love" in the United States — and he ain't talking about pussy grabbing this time! (We hope…)

The president held a joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday, and he wanted everyone to know he LOVES the Jews, despite a rise of anti-Semitic incidents since his campaign.

When asked by an Israeli reporter about whether his platform encouraged xenophobia, Trump felt the need to remind everyone that he won 306 electoral votes and fostered "tremendous enthusiasm."

Yeah… but enthusiasm for what, exactly?

POTUS also reminded the press that his daughter Ivanka Trump, his son-in-law Jared Kushner, and their three children are Jewish. Oh, thanks!

Speaking on the scandal surrounding Michael Flynn — who resigned after admitting to speaking with Russia about lifting U.S. sanctions — Trump said the national security advisor had been treated very unfairly.

Related: Kellyanne Conway No Longer Welcome On Morning Joe!

Blasting intelligence agencies for the "criminal act" of leaking reports to the press, Drumpf only had sympathy for his former adviser — and blamed the recent leaks on (what else?) Democrats covering for Hillary Clinton's "terrible loss."

Starting to sound like a broken record there, Donny. Maybe this has more to do with agencies wanting to expose your love affair with Russia?

Watch the clips (below) to see Trump get defensive over Flynn — and also promise that he's gonna fix racism!

Seth Meyers & Stephen Colbert Point Out The Irony & Idiocy Of Michael Flynn's White House Scandal!

no title

A big congrats go out to Donald Trump's lackey Michael Flynn!

Late night hosts celebrated the former National Security Advisor's historic stint in the White House — because it was the shortest tenure EVER before Flynn resigned over lying about his sketchy phone calls with Russia.

Related: Flynn May Not Be The Only One In Contact With Russia…

On Tuesday's Late Night, Seth Meyers pointed out the irony of Flynn's scandal — in which he admitted to speaking with Russian diplomats about lifting U.S. sanctions before Trump was sworn in.

The real irony here is that Mr. Flynn was the one who called on Hillary Clinton to drop out of the election over those damn emails — and even chanted "lock her up"! SMH…

Stephen Colbert slammed the White House's response to the scandal on The Late Show, noting that Trump's administration was warned by the Justice Department of Flynn's illegal activity — but, of course, POTUS was too busy with his other presidential duties, like waging war against Nordstrom.

They also called out Trump's response in deflecting the blame to Washington leaks — when he's the one conducting meetings right in the middle of his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. Yes, this is real life.

Ch-ch-check out both clips (below) to get your daily breakdown of the burning looney bin that is the White House.
