Did Trump just threaten to blackmail some Democrat?

He is such a bs-er. "I've seen that person..." He's never seen whoever this is. And he's just making it up.

President Donald Trump issued a vague threat to an unnamed Democratic senator during a Monday press conference while addressing scrutiny of his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's drinking habits.

Trump was fielding questions from reporters about an FBI investigation into sexual-misconduct allegations when he said he supported Kavanaugh being interviewed. But he cast doubt on Senate Democrats' apparent interest in the judge's drinking habits in high school and college.

"They're going back to high school, they're saying he drank a lot one evening in high school," Trump said, referring to the Senate Judiciary Committee's questions into Kavanaugh's past drinking habits after two women described drunken incidents of sexual assault and misconduct from his time in high school and college that Kavanaugh denied.

Trump continued: "I happen to know some United States senators, one on the other side who is pretty aggressive I've seen that person in very bad situations ... somewhat compromising."

Kelly O'Donnell is saying MSNBC-- request for new FBI investigation: "Serious conversations"

Just discussion, but let's see.

If they do a film about Olympic gods, Maya Wiley should play Athena-- wise, compassionate, beautiful.

He really is even dumber than we thought


Charlie Pierce on glimpses from the Woodward book:
How to lower the national debt:
"Just run the presses print money," Trump said, according to Woodward, during a discussion on the national debt with Gary Cohn, former director of the White House National Economic Council.

He honestly thought you could just print the $20 trillion and wipe out the debt.


I don't understand how he could have run a business and not have heard of "inflation."

I have James Clapper's book in audio-- can send to your email

Thanks to demtenjeep for offering print versions of these "insider" books! I have a few of these books in Audible format (audiobook), which I could send to you if you've never gotten an audible book this way. I think it comes to you as a link, and you can listen to it on your PC or phone. Let me know-- I would need an email or mobile phone #.

BTW, the Clapper book is named Facts and Fears. Notice how often 'fear' comes into play in these titles....
