Paul Ryan: ´I’ve never seen anything
like´ leaked McCarthy recording

Politico, by Louis Nelson

Original Article

Posted By:Lalo, 5/19/2017 9:54:36 PM

House Speaker Paul Ryan said Friday that he’s “never seen anything like” the leaked recording on which House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy can be heard saying, supposedly jokingly, that he believed Russian President Vladimir Putin was paying then-GOP candidate Donald Trump and Rep. Dana Rohrabacher. In a story datelined from Kiev, Ukraine, The Washington Post reported on Wednesday that McCarthy could be heard on a recording of a meeting from last summer saying “there’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump” and punctuating his remark amid laughter from his GOP colleagues by adding “swear to God.” Ryan quickly

So McCarthy was joking but turns out the real jokester is McMuffin, allegedly.

The audio recording shows lots of laughter at McCarthy´s joke.

Kevin McCarthy is one of the stupidest people I have ever seen swimming in the Washington cesspool. He´s right up there with Nancy Pelosi, Patty Murray, Susan Collins. Dumber than a box of rocks does not begin to describe his lack of intelligence. Does the Califorina GOP require a lobotomy before running for office from that state? No wonder the CA GOP is extinct. They´re Neanderthals

Looks like Ryan & McCarthy get on the subpoena calendar for the Russian SnipeHunt. Hope they can indict them on obstruction or some other ´ethics violation´ to get them out of the way. Knife cuts both ways boys.

All of these jokesters, elected by people who trust them to be honorable, etc. Now they´re just pathetic creatures bubbling up from the swamp. I pray that these revelations won´t be forgotten in the next election.

I´ve never seen anything like the Congressional Republicans since Trump won the nomination and the election.

I have never been a Trumpista. I voted for him and am willing to allow him time despite what I consider unforced errors and missteps. I support the fact that America chose him.

The Congressional Republicans are now dead to me. The whole bunch is disgraceful connivers.

“Trump increasingly questions the loyalty of everyone, including his own staff and personal lawyer,” wrote Axios of the Don Jr fiasco this morning. “Every day, it feels like the walls are closing in and it’s unclear who to trust.” Last night the mystery was who had handed Don Jr’s emails to the Times. Today the mystery is why the Times would specify in its latest story that it was Kushner’s legal team who had “discovered” the emails knowing that everyone will now jump to the not-unlikely conclusion that they were the ones who provided them to the paper. It’s not

The mainstream media is in a state of ecstasy over the story of Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with that Russian lawyer. It’s easy to understand why. After months with nothing to feed on, the media now has a scrap. In this context, the meal feels like a feast. It certainly seems that way to Ruth Marcus. She declares, absurdly, that the Trump Jr. emails “could hardly be more incriminating.” I must have missed the one in which he told the Russkies to go ahead and hack John Podesta’s emails, and provided them the password. Marcus also opines that Trump, Jr. violated

Donald Trump Jr.’s newly hired defense lawyer bashed President Trump as ignorant of history and the Constitution following his firing of acting Attorney General Sally Yates, emails exclusively obtained by The Post reveal. Alan Futerfas — a Democrat who supported both Hillary Clinton and President Obama — repeatedly sent email blasts to members of the New York Council of Defense Lawyers as they debated a response to Yates’ January 30 dismissal for refusing to defend Trump’s first travel ban. In response to a 10:47 p.m. message with the subject line “Urgent call to action,” Futerfas backed a proposal that the

Yesterday, The New York Times reported that Donald Trump Jr. met with a Russian lawyer with ties to the Kremlin who claimed to have information that could harm Hillary Clinton’s campaign. The intermediary tells Trump Jr. that the information comes from high-up in the Russian government — the crown prosecutor of Russia, in fact, who is an appointee of Vladimir Putin (but then again, aren’t they all.) At first Trump Jr. says it’s all a bunch of fake news. Once The New York Times contacts him about emails corroborating their story, he takes the initiative and releases a four-page chain

Beijing´s spy networks in the United States include up to 25,000 Chinese intelligence officers and more than 15,000 recruited agents who have stepped up offensive spying activities since 2012, according to a Chinese dissident with close ties to Beijing´s military and intelligence establishment. Guo Wengui, a billionaire businessman who broke with the regime several months ago, said in an interview that he has close ties to the Ministry of State Security (MSS), the civilian intelligence service, and the military spy service of the People´s Liberation Army (PLA). "I know the Chinese spy system very, very well," Guo said, speaking through

Near the end of its Tuesday story on Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer, The New York Times casually noted that the news “blunted whatever good feeling the president’s team had after his trip to Europe.” Excuse me, but wasn’t blunting the president’s success the whole point of the latest installment of the Russia, Russia, Russia story? Isn’t that why the leakers leaked when they did, and why the Times splashed the story on its front page day after day? Excuse the cynicism, but there is a relentless pattern, and we don’t need a crystal ball to see the future.

A powerful House Republican is calling on the Department of Justice to launch an investigation into former FBI Director James Comey´s alleged leaks of classified information, the Washington Free Beacon reported Tuesday. Comey admitted in testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee last month that he leaked information from one memo to the news media to spur the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 campaign. Rep. Ron DeSantis (R., Fla.), a member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and chair of its National Security subcommittee, also called on President Trump to purge

Amid the firestorm over the new revelations about Donald Trump Jr´s contact with a Russian lawyer during the campaign, it´s worth noting that another candidate´s associates engaged in "collusion" with a foreign government: Hillary Clinton´s allies and the Ukrainian government teamed up to coordinate anti-Trump material. Peter Hasson of The Daily Caller reminded everyone of a Politico report detailing the coordination between the two: Democratic National Committee (DNC) operative Alexandra Chalupa met with Ukrainian government officials for dirt on Paul Manafort, who at the time was rumored to replace Corey Lewandowski as Donald Trump´s campaign manager.

A chain of emails published Tuesday by Donald Trump Jr., President Trump´s eldest son, raised fresh questions about the Trump campaign´s contact with Russians during the presidential race and placed the White House´s previous denials of such contact under renewed scrutiny. The emails suggested Trump Jr. pursued what he thought was opposition research about Hillary Clinton from a source connected to the Russian government last year, contradicting his previous claim that the meeting was always intended to focus primarily on adoption. Here are five issues raised by the email chain.[snip] Rob Goldstone, the publicist who arranged the June 2016 meeting, told

President Trump released a brief statement Tuesday in response to his son´s decision to release four pages of emails related to his 2016 meeting with a Russian attorney. "My son is a high-quality person and I applaud his transparency," Trump said in a statement read by Sarah Sanders, deputy press secretary.

The June 3, 2016, email sent to Donald Trump Jr. could hardly have been more explicit: One of his father’s former Russian business partners had been contacted by a senior Russian government official and was offering to provide the Trump campaign with dirt on Hillary Clinton. The documents “would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father,” read the email, written by a trusted intermediary, who added, “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.” If the future president’s elder

It’s the sort of brazen move that might ordinarily trigger a front-page news story or an outraged editorial — a bunch of rich individuals asking Congress to write them a law that would give them better negotiating power against other rich individuals. Yet in this case, the rich individuals wanting special treatment are the newspaper owners themselves. Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos (worth $83.9 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaire’s Index), New York Times owner Carlos Slim (worth $61.1 billion), and Buffalo News owner Warren Buffett ($76.9 billion), publicly pleading poverty, are asking Congress for a helping hand in their

A growing number of Californians want to secede from the U.S., according to a new poll by Supporters of California Independence. Thirty-three percent of the people surveyed were in favor of the idea, the majority of them saying they are progressives or social Democrats. Many of the respondents were moved to their answer by the current political climate. "About half of our supporters wanted an independent California through democratic and peaceful means before Trump, and then the other half got on board when they realized just how broken American politics have become," said Theo Slater of the California National Party.

Hillary Clinton is encouraging people to support Planned Parenthood by buying TBS host Samantha Bee´s T-shirts. The shirts feature the words ´Nasty Woman´ - a reference to the jibe President Trump made at Clinton during a 2016 presidential debate. The phrase was quickly seized by feminists and Hillary supporters in the run up to the election. The former Secretary of State showed her support for Bee and her cause on Tuesday, tweeting a picture of smiling photo of herself holding up the shirt, with the caption: ´Support Samantha Bee & Planned Parenthood & buy a Nasty Woman t-shirt.´ Clinton also posted a

This is oddly interesting. ( h/t GWP ) At the heart of the current media Russian narrative du jour is a story about Donald Trump Jr. meeting with a Russian attorney named Natalia Veselnitskaya. That meeting took place on June 9th 2016 in Trump Tower. Now it is discovered via video and images, that only 5 days later, June 14th 2016, Ms. Veselnitskava was a guest of former Obama administration Russian Ambassador Michael McFaul in Washington DC for a House of Representatives hearing on U.S. Policy Toward Putin’s Russia.

Over the past generation, members of the college-educated class have become amazingly good at making sure their children retain their privileged status. They have also become devastatingly good at making sure the children of other classes have limited chances to join their ranks. How they’ve managed to do the first task — giving their own children a leg up — is pretty obvious. It’s the pediacracy, stupid. Over the past few decades, upper-middle-class Americans have embraced behavior codes that put cultivating successful children at the center of life. As soon as they get money, they turn it into investments in

The entire Fort Lauderdale Police Department should undergo extra training on how to properly treat transgender people, a city panel has decided. The suggestion came Monday during a Citizens Police Review Board hearing for a police officer who categorized a transgender woman as male on a citation. The board, which serves as a watchdog group over police, also decided the officer should receive a written reprimand for the incident. “I think it’s fair,” said board member Marc Dickerson. “It’s a matter of training and the officers need training.” Officer James Brinton faced a complaint from Shelby Kendall after he pulled

A chunk of floating ice that weighs more than a trillion metric tons broke away from the Antarctic Peninsula, producing one of the largest icebergs ever recorded and providing a glimpse of how the Antarctic ice sheet might ultimately start to fall apart. A crack more than 120 miles long had developed over several years in a floating ice shelf called Larsen C, and scientists who have been monitoring it confirmed on Wednesday that the huge iceberg had finally broken free. There is no scientific consensus over whether global warming is to blame. But the landscape of the Antarctic Peninsula has been fundamentally changed,

Chelsea Clinton was spotted out in the Hamptons over the weekend, enjoying a weekend away with her husband Marc Mezvinsky. The pair were spotted out to dinner on Friday night in Amagansett and then out again the following morning as they went to grab coffee with a friend. Chelsea, 37, was taking a break after promoting her bestselling book ´She Persisted´ for the past month. Her husband, 39, does not currently have a job, so was taking a break from his days of taking a break in New York City. Chelsea kept off social media during her trip out to

t’s easy to see why Sarah Huckabee Sanders wants the TV cameras off during her White House news briefings. There is, for one, the matter of her boss constantly proclaiming things that range from the inexplicable to the patently wrong. There’s also the metastasizing Russia scandal, which keeps rendering previous Trump White House statements inoperative, as Richard Nixon press secretary Ron Ziegler used to say. But above all is a more simple explanation: Sanders has no earthly idea what’s going on in the White House she purports to represent. And so, at Monday’s off-camera briefing, she stood on the podium,

Must be nice to have no job and be able to weekend in the Hamptons anyway. That is the life of Chelsea Clinton and husband Marc Mezvinsky. Her father was an impeached president. His father was a congressman who went to prison in 2003 after pleading guilty to 31 felony charges of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud. He served five years.The two are professional moochers.
