Slightly interesting, and in the big picture somewhat expected. During a lengthy interview with ABC’s primary propagandist, Jonathan Karl, former VP Mike Pence asserts that if he is forced to give testimony to Special Counsel Jack Smith on conversations with President Trump about the 2020 election results(snip) will not assert that private conversation as “executive privilege.” This approach was expected by the most cynically minded, because it explains why Pence is delaying any presidential race announcement. (snip) to be valuable to the special counsel, he must testify before he makes a 2024 announcement, or else his testimony gives the impression of denying “executive privilege” (snip)to undermine his opponent,


Which anyone with his brain tied behind his back knows is exactly what Pence is up to. He fools no one. He is a backstabber when it comes to PDJT.

Hey, Mike, you're acting like a bitter "Spare", if you get my drift. Get lost. You're not needed.

Seems to me it is the President who gets to assert that private conversations between himself and anyone else are privileged communications, and NOT the person he was talking to.

In another story Pence stated the the "Privilege" he was going to assert was based upon him being a "Member of Congress" doing his official duties on those days..."President of the Senate", advise and consent is protected.. And doing so because that coupled with Trumps privileged communications claims increases the chance that one or both will be recognized, or caught up in adjudication longer, leading to the demands for his testimony fading away, being dropped. He can claim both on some potential questions.

It is so interesting how Pence fooled many of us Christian conservatives for so long. Indiana folks tried to explain why they were worried when Trump chose him. He has his act down so good and has it ever been effective. It took a Trump to rip that mask off to reveal the cunning self-serving politician we clearly see today.

Pence, you also did not assert or fulfill your constitutional duty to ensure accurate election results in 2020, where you could easily have postponed a couple of weeks to get accurate results. You are definitely not the man to turn to in a crisis, or any question above staff level. You keep your face out there, making more mistakes, one after the other, which is what a fool does.

From an article on selection of vice presidential candidate which cites several examples: "In an inverse of 2008, President Donald Trump had no problem whipping populist Republicans into a loyal army of supporters, but his campaign worried that evangelical Christian voters and the Republican establishment wouldn't feel comfortable supporting him. As a result, Mike Pence - an outspoken conservative Christian with respect among the establishment Republicans - was chosen to bridge the perceived gap.”

Always had the feeling Pence touted his religion to much to be true. Actions speak louder than words. Especially from a man.

The lead prosecutor in charge of the January 6 investigation, the largest probe in Justice Department history, just confirmed what American Greatness has reported for months: the number of criminal cases related to the Capitol protest is expected to at least double before it’s all over.

The funniest thing I have read in, well, at least the last several hours, comes from Manhattan’s George Soros-funded affirmative-action district attorney, Alvin Bragg.

'There will be no arraignment this week,' a source familiar with the proceedings told exclusively on Tuesday. The former president, who is currently in Florida, is expected to be formally charged tomorrow, after which the Manhattan District Attorney's office will reach out to Trump and his Secret Service detail to make arrangements for his surrender, according to the insider.

Former President Donald Trump experienced yet another boost this week amid rumors of a looming arrest, the latest Morning Consult survey, released Tuesday, found. This week’s Morning Consult survey demonstrates gains for the former president, as he now has 54 percent support — up from 52 percent recorded last week. Meanwhile, his closest potential competitor, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, lost two points, going from 28 percent to 26 percent. In other words, Trump’s lead jumped from +24 to +28 in the last week:

This is what news and information is supposed to be all about. (snip) In this interview, former Michael Cohen lawyer, Robert Costello, deconstructs the entire premise of the key witness Alvin Bragg is using to target President Trump. Costello states in the interview that he just delivered two hours of grand jury testimony in Manhattan specifically against the interests of the prosecution Alvin Bragg is attempting to construct. Michael Cohen previously waived attorney-client privilege with Robert Costello, during his effort to get out of legal trouble during his federal case. This waiver permits Robert Costello to discuss the entire background of his former representation with Michael Cohen.

For his opening monologue tonight, Fox News host Tucker Carlson breaks down the Manhattan case against President Trump as constructed by District Attorney Alvin Bragg. Carlson notes and contrasts recent -almost identical situations- involving former Democrat presidential candidate John Edwards, and later Hillary Clinton. The legal merits of the campaign finance case are farcical on their face as admitted by the Federal Election Commission (FEC), previously litigated via legal precedent (John Edwards), and even Supreme Court interpretation (VA Gov Bob McDonnell). Additionally, even if there was a legal issue, there isn’t, the statute of limitations on the claimed infraction has expired.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) is demanding answers from a New York district attorney reportedly planning to arrest former President Donald Trump on March 21. The district attorney in question, Alvin Bragg of Manhattan, is reportedly planning to arrest the former president over an alleged “hush money” payment during the 2016 election. Trump is accused of furnishing money to adult film actress Stormy Daniels to hide allegations of an affair between the two, which Trump denies having. (snip) In his letter to Bragg (pdf), Jordan—joined by House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) and House Administration Committee Chairman Bryan Steil (R-Wis.)—called the impending arrest “an unprecedented abuse of prosecutorial authority.”

Stunningly, the Polish Ambassador to France Jan Emeryk Rościszewski said yesterday: “Either Ukraine will defend its independence today, or we will be forced to enter into this conflict,” sending a clear message that NATO will enter the war against Russia if Ukraine loses ground. Rościszewski essentially said the quiet part out loud, and that public statement immediately caused the NATO allies to recoil. The EU NATO allies were not recoiling due to the substance of what he said, but rather because he said it publicly. Keep in mind, Jan Emeryk Rościszewski has been Poland’s Ambassador to France for about a year, and before that he was the Chairman of

Nearly 200 more banks could be vulnerable to the same type of risk that collapsed Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) earlier this month, according to a recently published study. There are 186 banks across the United States that could collapse if half of their respective uninsured depositors withdraw their funds, researchers with the Social Science Research Network found. Deposits at member banks of up to $250,000 are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., although the agency agreed to insure depositors’ funds far above that after SVB’s collapse this month. “Combined, losses and uninsured leverage provide incentives for an SVB uninsured depositor run,” an abstract of the paper reads

The day that Donald Trump proclaimed he’d be arrested is upon us. Will he or won’t he be processed and taken into custody on a weak attempt to relitigate the Stormy Daniels payoff? All we can do is wait, and since there is no timeline for grand jury deliberations, that wait could drag on. In the meantime, Trump is keeping his eye on the ball in the face of possible jail time.

Climate Change is a religion. We all know that. The University of Helsinki has decided to make that official by giving Greta Thunberg an honorary Doctorate of Theology at the ripe old age of 20. Pretty sure she hasn’t graduated from High School, but maybe I am wrong. I thought she dropped out to become a climate change activist. Now that she is Dr. Thunberg she can glue herself to Volkswagens or something. Isn’t that what activists with Ph. D.s do these days?

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has finally taken the gloves off and launched a blistering attack on his former mentor President Donald Trump. In an exclusive wide-ranging interview with me airing on Fox Nation’s “Piers Morgan Uncensored” on Thursday, he said “stay tuned” about his widely expected announcement that he’s running for president and declared: I have what it takes to be president and I can beat Biden. But it’s what he said about Trump that will ignite a firestorm in the Republican Party. For months, DeSantis has said nothing as Trump’s escalated his verbal attacks on him, branding his ex-protégé “Ron DeSanctimonious” and “Meatball Ron.” On Monday, Trump went nuts
