The U.S. Secret Service on Sunday said Donald Trump Jr. was not under protection during his meeting with a Russian attorney in June 2016, adding that they would not have screened any of his meetings. "Donald Trump, Jr. was not a protectee of the USSS in June, 2016. Thus we would not have screened anyone he was meeting with at that time," Secret Service spokesman Mason Brayman said in a statement to Reuters. On Sunday morning, Jay Sekulow, a member of Trump´s legal team, questioned on ABC News´ "This Week" why the Secret Service allowed Trump Jr. to meet Kremlin-linked

"Trump Jr., ......met with Veselnitskaya, who said she had damaging information on Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton."

She speaks only limited English, which is why the British music promoter had to arrange a meeting for her and Trump campaign. As to Jay Sekulow, he believes that he is still an FNC analyst rather than a discreet attorney for the President. He´s becoming the Lanny Davis of Repubs, always on and always spinning. There was nothing illegal about having the meeting and the Trump team did not ask anyone to perform an illegal act as a result of the meeting. That´s all that Jay has to say.

Let´s get back to those FISA warrants that allowed the snooping on the Trump campaign.
This Russian lawyer looks like the perfect vehicle to ride right in.

This whole situation reeks of setup by Clinton team, Loretta Lynch, and the Obama administration. From the moment Donald Trump won the presidency, these individuals took the necessary steps to start the "Russian collusion" theory. That was the very reason why Wisconsin had to do their recount.

They along with the liberals are trying daily to discredit Trump as our President. This is disgusting.

So since Jr. wasn´t under protective service, did that mean anyone who "said´ they were meeting with Jr would be let in.? That seems like a gaping hole in security.Absurd.

The leftist media keep leaving out the important things. Did Trump Jr. yawn at the meeting? Use a tissue? Take a sip of water?
Was the water in a paper cup or a glass? Was
there any water available at all?

All of these un-answered questions! We probably will never now the full extent of what went on at this secret meeting! (s/o)

It is becoming more and more evident.
the ANTI-American democRATS, their running, yappinf yellow dogs in the so-called media and so-called ?republicans? are trying to make this Anti-Trump thing into another "watergate" where LIES and Cheating took down President Nixon. I just hope to God there are enough sensible Americans and Republicans to beat back the hoards of LIARS, CHEATS and THEIVES acting like they are the ?elite? looking out for the rest of us.

Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg flew to Glacier National Park on Saturday to tour the melting ice fields that have become the poster child for climate change’s effects on Montana’s northern Rockies. But days before the tech tycoon’s visit, the Trump administration abruptly removed two of the park’s top climate experts from a delegation scheduled to show him around, telling a research ecologist and the park superintendent that they were no longer going to participate in the tour. The decision to micromanage Zuckerberg’s stop in Montana from 2,232 miles east in Washington, made by top officials at the Interior Department, the National

The New York Times published a diatribe from a black reporter Wednesday, in which he slammed “white women” for not getting out of his way as he walks through Manhattan. In the article, called “Was That Racist?” the Times published a series of short stories supposedly describing the complexities of figuring out if someone has been racist to you. “Everyday life brings awkward moments for everyone, but some of our daily stories are infused with added tension, especially if one or more of those involved perceive that race is a determining factor,” the intro to the article says.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, in an exclusive interview with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum, made clear he would not approve leaks like ex-FBI Director James Comey’s release of personal notes on discussions with President Trump. Rosenstein discussed the Comey controversy and the overall Russia probe led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller during the extensive interview, set to air Wednesday evening on Fox News’ “The Story.” And he had tough words when asked about Comey’s recent admission that he used a friend at Columbia University to get a memo he penned on a discussion with Trump leaked to The New York

WASHINGTON — So it’s a few days before the election last November — just a few more days, surely, before Donald J. Trump would return to his golden tower to start a niche TV venture and fill a sagging Twitter feed with exclamation-pointed despair — and a book agent goes to his client with an idea: How about something on the Trump White House That Wasn’t? The writer — Steve Israel, then a Democratic congressman from New York, now at work on his third political satire — whips up a proposal, “Trumplandia.” Plot lines include a furtive meeting with President

President Donald Trump´s top legislative priority was dealt a potentially fatal blow Monday night as two more Republican senators announced their opposition to the party´s health care overhaul. Trump quickly called on Republicans to simply repeal Obamacare and begin work on a new health care plan, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced he would try to do so. “Regretfully, it is now apparent that the effort to repeal and immediately replace the failure of Obamacare will not be successful," McConnell said. The Kentucky Republican said he planned to hold a vote in the coming days to take up the House-passed bill to

LOWELL, Mass. — They hide in weeds along hiking trails and in playground grass. They wash into rivers and float downstream to land on beaches. They pepper baseball dugouts, sidewalks and streets. Syringes left by drug users amid the heroin crisis are turning up everywhere. In Portland, Maine, officials have collected more than 700 needles so far this year, putting them on track to handily exceed the nearly 900 gathered in all of 2016. In March alone, San Francisco collected more than 13,000 syringes, compared with only about 2,900 in the same month in 2016. People, often children, risk getting stuck by

WASHINGTON — Actions by President Trump and his administration have created a historic ethics crisis, the departing head of the Office of Government Ethics said. He called for major changes in federal law to expand the power and reach of the oversight office and combat the threat. Walter M. Shaub Jr., who is resigning as the federal government’s top ethics watchdog on Tuesday, said the Trump administration had flouted or directly challenged long-accepted norms in a way that threatened to undermine the United States’ ethical standards, which have been admired around the world. “It’s hard for the United States to

   

 

  


 
Ruling shows I´m right

The recent reversal of Sheldon Silver’s corruption conviction by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit confirms the point I’ve been making for months about President Trump: his actions, as controversial as they may be, do not fit the definition of “corruption,” as that vague word is used in federal statutes. My critics have argued for an extraordinarily broad definition of corruption capable of being expanded to fit nearly everything Trump has done — from firing FBI Director James Comey, to asking him to consider dropping the investigation of General Michael Flynn, to his son’s meeting with Russian

Newly released documents from the FBI’s criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of highly classified materials highlight a “serious, but flawed investigation hindered by a lack of cooperation,” according to a new report. Some of the 42 pages are marked “grand jury material,” indicating that the FBI considered the investigation serious enough to prosecute before a grand jury, according to a report by Fox News. One document shows that one of Clinton’s private attorneys, Katherine Turner, had agreed to turn over one of Clinton’s non-secure Apple iPads and two of her BlackBerrys to the FBI. However, neither smartphone had SIM cards or Secure

This morning, President Donald Trump sat down for an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network’s Pat Robertson for an interview that will air on The 700 Club tomorrow. This will be the president’s first interview with an outlet that isn’t Fox News in more than two months. Following his sit-down with NBC News’ Lester Holt in which he revealed that Russia was on his mind when he fired FBI Director James Comey, the president has done only a handful of television interviews with friendly Fox News hosts. The White House appears to view CBN as a sympathetic outlet for Trump. Early on in

WASHINGTON—Investigators are re-examining conversations detected by U.S. intelligence agencies in spring 2015 that captured Russian government officials discussing associates of Donald Trump, according to current and former U.S. officials, a move prompted by revelations that the president’s eldest son met with a Russian lawyer last year. In some cases, the Russians in the overheard conversations talked about meetings held outside the U.S. involving Russian government officials and Trump business associates or advisers, these people said. Russian officials are routinely monitored by U.S. intelligence agencies,

While there are doubtless celebrations in Moscow, the news that Sen.

Shot down over North Vietnam, crippled by wounds and tortured, McCain refused early release and remained in his Hanoi prison, suffering for years beside his comrades. Returning home at last, on crutches, he dedicated himself to serving the people of Arizona and the

Authorities in Florida say that a group of teenagers recorded the drowning of a disabled man last week — and did nothing to help as they made fun of his struggles. Jamel Dunn, 32, of Cocoa, drowned in a retention pond July 9. His body was recovered July 14, two days after his fiancee reported him missing. Late last week, a friend of Dunn´s family came across the video on social media and forwarded it to authorities in Brevard County. In the video, which was published by the Florida Today newspaper Thursday, the teens can be heard laughing at Dunn

WASHINGTON- U.S. investigators examining money laundering accusations against President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort hope to push him to cooperate with their probe into possible collusion between Trump´s campaign and Russia, two sources with direct knowledge of the investigation said. Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s team is examining Manafort´s financial and real estate records in New York as well as his involvement in Ukrainian politics, the officials said. Between 2006 and 2013, Manafort bought three New York properties, including one in Trump Tower in Manhattan. He paid for them in full and later took out mortgages against them. A
