Pelosi: Trump 'Doesn't Seem To Have Attention Span' To Listen To Intel Chiefs


Pelosi, D-Calif., told reporters that intelligence officials were “courageous” in speaking “truth to power” by publicly contradicting Trump in congressional testimony this week.

“One dismaying factor of it all is that the president just doesn’t seem to have the attention span or the desire to hear what the intelligence community has been telling him,” Pelosi said, calling Trump’s comments “cause for concern.”


Pelosi said Trump’s comments were “stunning.”

“It’s important for the Republicans in Congress to recognize they have to weigh in with the president to say, ‘You can’t act without knowledge,'” Pelosi said.


From the Family of Jussie Smollett:

"Jussie has told the police everything from the very beginning. His story has never changed, and we are hopeful they will find these men and bring them to justice."


According to Mueller and DC USA, discovery in the Roger Stone case is "both voluminous and complex"

JUST IN: According to Mueller and DC USA, discovery in the Roger Stone case is "both voluminous and complex," and "is composed of multiple hard drives containing several terabytes of information"—including bank records & comms taken from iCloud/email accounts, electronic devices.

SALON: Mueller's next indictment will tie together Russians, WikiLeaks & top of the Trump campaign

Mueller closes the circle of Russian collusion on Trump
The next indictment will tie together the Russians, WikiLeaks, and the top of the Trump campaign

Mueller’s next indictment will tie together the Russians, WikiLeaks and the top of the Trump campaign

The next arrest and indictment you’re going to see from Mueller will be his biggest yet. One morning in the not too distant future, he’s going to sweep up everyone remaining who was associated with using the Democratic Party emails stolen by the Russians. Julian Assange will be indicted. So will Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner. Roger Stone will probably face a superseding indictment along with the others for defrauding the United States by conspiring with WikiLeaks and the Russian intelligence service, the GRU, to steal Democratic Party campaign documents and use them to interfere with the American presidential election of 2016, the same charge he made against the Russians. Mueller will probably follow Justice Department guidelines and the example set by Special Prosecutor Leon Jaworski in Watergate. He will probably not indict the president, but he will name him as an unindicted co-conspirator, just as Richard Nixon was in Watergate.

It’s going to be a jaw-dropping arrest and indictment because it has to be. Mueller can no longer issue indictments piecemeal and get guilty pleas or convictions one by one. This time, he must lay out a case that Trump and his campaign officials committed crimes that are so egregious, it will be impossible for the congress to fail to protect him from being fired. If Mueller were to indict Kushner alone, or Trump Jr. alone, it would be too easy for Trump to feign outrage and fire him. That’s why Mueller’s next move will be his last, and it will be the big one, sweeping up everyone who is left at once.

Mueller’s indictment of the Republican bad boy and former Trump political adviser Roger Stone was less of an allegation that Stone committed crimes like lying to the congress and tampering with a witness, than it was the exercise of an elaborate search warrant for all of Stone’s houses and offices. Mueller wanted Stone’s electronic devices, because he needs to confirm what he already knows about Stone’s connections to WikiLeaks. He gained this knowledge from the National Security Agency and the CIA, both of which have been involved in the Russia investigation in the background.



Kamala Harris was asked if a woman can beat Trump in 2020. Her answer is both inspiring and honest

At the town hall in Des Moines, among other things, she was (basically) asked if she thinks it’s possible for a woman to beat Donald Trump in 2020.

Here’s the question, asked by playwright and composer Robert John Ford:

"Some have also said that, given what occurred in 2016 and the current political climate, that a male nominee will have a better chance this time around than a female nominee. Would you please respond to this so that this man has a response ready the next time a man tries to mansplain why a man would make a better nominee?"

Her answer covered some solid ground, first looping back to when she ran for district attorney in San Fransisco (and later attorney general of California), and how she responded to doubters then:

“I’ve heard people say when I ran, and ran as the first woman who would win, ‘People aren’t ready. It’s not your time. Nobody like you has done that before,’. I haven’t listened and I would suggest that nobody should listen to that kind of conversation.”

Assimilate this, assholes...


A reply to Tom Brokow re: assimilation


I also happen to believe that older white males should work harder at assimilation That’s one of the things I’ve been saying for a long time. You know, they ought not to be just codified in their communities but teach their kids to live in a pluralistic society.
