In yet another attempt to create horse shit without the horse, the media is stirring it up again.

So much of “Attorney Client Privilege.”

Ambulance chasing former Trump attorney’s attempt to role on President Trump is clearly a non issue

So you want to be president of the United States of America?

This should come as no surprise, it’s what the progressive left and their media whores live for.

After meeting cancellations, more headaches await Trump at G20

President Trump is flying to Argentina today for the G20 Summit, and, after he canceled a meeting with Russian President Putin and downgraded another with Turkish President Erdogan, it’s already off to a rocky start.

What to watch: The summit will be fraught with strategic problems.

On Trump’s plate will be questions about European security in the face of Russian military aggression; America’s Middle East plans now that Saudi Arabia is becoming an international pariah and the Senate has moved to reject the administration’s support for the Yemen war.

U.S. plans to disregard international asylum standards along the Mexican border; and rising global concerns about climate change.

 

 

Here are the top issues Trump will confront in meetings with foreign leaders:

  • Japan’s Abe: Devising a workable plan for ending North Korea’s nuclear ambitions.
  • North Korea is continuing to develop its nuclear and missile programs in secret, despite assurances to the contrary made by Kim Jong-un to President Trump.
  • With a key stake, Japan is taking a hard position, one that will create concerns for South Korea’s Moon, who is taking a more amicable approach.
  • China’s Xi: Deciding whether to end the jointly destructive tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars in goods.
  • Markets have been shaky and Trump’s political base is feeling blowback from his tariffs policy, opening the door to deal-making.
  • An agreement to pause new tariffs while conducting negotiations to resolve the trade conflict would be a practical way forward.
  • Turkey’s Erdogan: Discussing strategies to resolve the Syrian war and prevent the re-emergence of ISIS.
  • The U.S. now controls nearly one-third of Syria, but ISIS is not fully extinguished. Cooperation with Turkey, Syria’s northern neighbor, is crucial to negotiating an end to the conflict.
  • But Turkey still presents challenges to Trump’s Iran and Gulf policies. And Trump may be fearful of offending Saudi Arabia by meeting formally with Erdogan and not with Muhammad bin Salman, so he isn’t.

With the canceled Putin meeting, nuclear insecurity will now become a greater concern as both the U.S. and Russia put off renewing their treaty commitments.

The bottom line: The G20 Summit will highlight many of the most intractable problems the U.S. faces abroad.

Trump will need to redouble his engagement with the international community in order to resolve ongoing nuclear uncertainties, economic clashes and military quagmires.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday denied pursuing a Trump Organization real estate project in Moscow, which his former lawyer Michael Cohen said they had continued until June 2016, during the presidential campaign.

At issue is a proposal to build a skyscraper bearing Trump’s name in Moscow.

Cohen told both the Senate and House intelligence panels the real estate project had ended before the political primary season began, according to a court document.

Trump told reporters outside the White House he had decided not to build the building in Moscow, although he did not specify when he decided against pursuing the project “That was a project that we didn’t do, I didn’t do.

That was a project that wasn’t done for a lot of reasons.

I was focused on running for president.

I wanted that to be my primary focus. Not running or building a building,” Trump said.

 

Michael Cohen pleads guilty to lying to Congress

Cohen pleaded guilty on Thursday to lying to Congress about the project, putting fresh pressure on the president.

“Michael Cohen is lying and he’s trying to get a reduced sentence for things that have nothing to do with me,” he added.

Cohen’s guilty plea on Thursday may signal his hope for a lighter sentence in exchange for continuing his cooperation with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether Trump colluded with Moscow.

Both Trump and Moscow have denied any wrongdoing.

Despite the long relationship between the president and Cohen, Trump has sought to distance himself from his former lawyer, who pleaded guilty in August to campaign finance violations, tax evasion and bank fraud.

Cohen testified in August that Trump had directed him to commit a crime by arranging payments to silence two women before the 2016 election who said they had affairs with Trump.

The president has denied having affairs with the women.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

  1. Rule of Law says:

    Mueller has a long history of being a LIAR! Mueller has violated many people’s rights and the USA has paid large settlements for Mueller’s bad behavior – abuse of process and such Two of Mueller’s victims died while in custody in a case where Mueller knew these guys were innocent but withheld the evidence to allow them to be released under the law. Mueller is not fit to be a prosecutor or investigator. The record is very clear on this issue of Mueller’s total lack of ethics!

    THEN, we have the long term connection between Mueller and Hillary and James Comey. Mueller is the person who hand carried the uranium to Moscow to facilitate the Uranium One Deal that involved both Obama and Hillary as well as many others in the corrupt FBI and DOJ1

    Mueller needs to be arrested and tried for Sedition and Treason. Rumor has it that Loretta Lynch has changed sides and is testifying for the Trump team. Lynch has given testimony which will become part of the Disclosure process.

    Trump and his team are following the Law as they move forward so that the Rules of Evidence under the Rules of Civil Procedure are being followed which takes time to establish the chain of evidence required for formal court trial rules.

    Trump is returning America to the Rule of Law and is taking the necessary time to follow the law.

    America needs to return to the Rule of Law!
