KRUGMAN: I do not believe that Trump would have run into that high school to stop the shooter

@paulkrugman
Personally, I do not believe that Donald Trump would have run into that high school to stop the shooter. I believe he would have taken a golf cart

Zinke tried to *pull pilots from fighting wild fires* to fly him around on a private jet in Nevada.


His recently obtained schedule shows that he was accompanied by a Bureau of Land Management supervisor who usually manages firefighting crews. That day, there were 22 new fires raging in the Great Basin, and two fires uncontained.




Lucas Rhea, a helitack crew supervisor whose Facebook page shows he was actively working on wildfires through September, is listed on the flight manifest with Zinke for five stops on July 30. Interior did not say if Rhea was pulled from firefighting duty to accompany Zinke.

Zinke's schedule released late last year also doesn't specify why a high-ranking firefighting official accompanied the secretary on a trip that had nothing to do with the wildfires, but Swift told CNN that federal regulations require an Interior-qualified helicopter manager to accompany the secretary on privately piloted chartered flights.

Interior has not always been able to get the private planes it's wanted. Emails uncovered by the watchdog group Democracy Forward through a FOIA request and shared with CNN, show that last July, pilots were in short supply.

In July, Interior staff attempted to charter two legs of Zinke's trip, one leg from Las Cruces, New Mexico, to Santa Fe, and a second from Santa Fe to Las Vegas as part of his tour of federal lands in the West.

But "due to the active fires," an internal email says, "we're having trouble getting two pilots for the charter flights in Nevada and New Mexico. We're still waiting to hear from one more vendor, but please let me know if we are willing to proceed with the flights if there is only one pilot."

Not able to find a pilot, Zinke both flew commercial and drove.

OMG It's Real Folks-WH Confirms Jared was manipulated


The White House just confirmed the report that Israel, Mexico, China and UAE privately discussed ways to manipulate Kushner. WH deputy press secretary Raj Shah condemned the report on CNN as “an intelligence leak.” That’s means it’s real. Thanks, Raj.

COLLUSION: Trump campaign knew long in advance - Russians were planning on releasing stolen emails

AMAZING THREAD!!!:

Collusion has been established. The Trump campaign conspired with a hostile foreign power running a covert intelligence operation to help them win an election. To believe otherwise you must now ignore the facts that are staring us in the face. END

We now have proof that the Trump campaign knew long in advance that the Russians were planning on releasing stolen Clinton & DNC emails. 1/


We had known since the Papadopoulos plea last October that the Trump campaign were told in April 2016 that “the Russians had emails of Clinton,” and “they have thousands of emails.” 2/



While the information revealed in the plea does not directly say that Papadopoulos told top officials in the Trump campaign, it made clear he was in frequent contact w them re his Russian contacts & it is inconceivable to believe he just didn’t tell them this bombshell. 3/



We now know from the Democrats’ HPSCI memo released Saturday night that the Russians also told Papadopoulos of their plan to disseminate the stolen emails. 4/



The DOJ felt certain enough of their evidence that the Russians told Papadopoulos that they intended to release the emails that they submitted it to the FISA Court. 5/



Rep. Adam Schiff, the lead author of the Dem HPSCI memo, emphasized the significance of this revelation on @chrishayes on Monday night that this is “the first time the public has been able to see one of the links here.”
http://www.msnbc.com/all-in/watch/gop-sabotage-efforts-can-t-stop-robert-mueller-1171216963706 6/



Schiff draws a line right to Trump, “so when Donald Trump openly called on the Russians to hack Clinton’s emails & they would be richly rewarded if they revealed those to the press, his campaign had already been put on notice that the Russians were prepared to do just that.” 7/



This also sheds new light on the reason Don Jr was so eager to get the promised dirt from the Russians during the infamous Trump Tower meeting: “If it’s what you say I love it.” 8/



The conspiracy is now in the open: Trump campaign knew the Russians had stolen Clinton & DNC emails & they planned to release them; eagerly sought covert Russian help; encouraged more Russian email releases; & made extensive use them when released knowing Russia stole them. 9/




Collusion has been established. The Trump campaign conspired with a hostile foreign power running a covert intelligence operation to help them win an election. To believe otherwise you must now ignore the facts that are staring us in the face. END

Mueller looking into possible coordination between Wikileaks/Trump Associates in disseminating email

I think trump is toast. I do.

Special counsel Robert Mueller's team is asking witnesses pointed questions about whether Donald Trump was aware that Democratic emails had been stolen before that was publicly known, and whether he was involved in their strategic release, according to multiple people familiar with the probe.



Mueller asking what Trump knew about hacked emails
by KATY TUR and CAROL E. LEE

Special counsel Robert Mueller's team is asking witnesses pointed questions about whether Donald Trump was aware that Democratic emails had been stolen before that was publicly known, and whether he was involved in their strategic release, according to multiple people familiar with the probe.

Mueller's investigators have asked witnesses whether Trump was aware of plans for WikiLeaks to publish the emails. They have also asked about the relationship between GOP operative Roger Stone and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, and why Trump took policy positions favorable to Russia.

The line of questioning suggests the special counsel, who is tasked with examining whether there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election, is looking into possible coordination between WikiLeaks and Trump associates in disseminating the emails, which U.S. intelligence officials say were stolen by Russia.

Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion and has described the special counsel's investigation as "illegal" and a "witch hunt."

Michelle Obama Takes a Subtle Jab at Trump and his Tweets: I Use Social Media Like a Grown-Up

The former first lady had a few words to say about the dangers of Twitter, which she confessed was still a mystery to her.

“I still haven’t figured it out because I’m old and I don’t understand most of social media,”
she said during a health panel at Klick Health’s MUSE New York.

“I tweet, but I have a committee,” Obama continued. “I don’t just tweet off the top of my head, which I don’t encourage people to do — especially kids.”

She added, “How many kids do you know that the first thing that comes off the top of their head is the first thing they should express? You know? It’s like, ‘Take a minute. Talk to your crew before you put that (out there) and then spell check and check the grammar.’”

Obama told the audience, “I think kids do think telling it like it is and talking off the top of your head (is cool)… (but) that’s never been good. We weren’t raised like that. That’s rude. That’s what you call rude. But yes, I use social media. But I use it like a grown-up.”
