Is Trump About To Fire Mueller?? Look At The Evidence!

OK, we're not going to keep you in suspense. The answer to bet on is OF COURSE Donald Trump is going to fire Robert Mueller. The only questions are When? and What are we going to do about it? Many have been calling for months for the protection of the Special Prosecutor's investigation, which has already yielded [...] OK, we're not going to keep you in suspense. The answer to bet on is OF COURSE Donald Trump is going to fire Robert Mueller. The only questions are When? and What are we going to do about it? Many have been calling for months for the protection of the Special Prosecutor's investigation, which has already yielded multiple guilty pleas and apparently uncovered Russian agents who compromised the 2016 election. Related: EXCLUSIVE! Donald Trump Jr.'s Secret Affair With Aubrey O'Day Revealed! Congress has passed no legislation, with some Republicans saying essentially there's no need to buy an umbrella because it's not raining yet. After this weekend's actions and tweetstorm by the President, we think the evidence is pretty clear. Ch-ch-check it out (below)! 1.) Trump actively encouraged the quick firing of FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe before his official retirement date -- keeping him from receiving his pension. And Jeff Sessions went through with it, despite McCabe being a witness in the Mueller probe and Sessions supposedly being recused from anything related to the investigation. Sessions faced no repercussions, so now he's obviously free to fire Mueller when Trump tells him to. Related: Why Trump's Next Picks For Secretary Of State & CIA Director Should Scare You 2.) Trump went on a Twitter rant over the weekend, using Mueller's name for the first time, calling fired FBI leaders James Comey and McCabe liars and saying outright the probe should end. As the House Intelligence Committee has concluded, there was no collusion between Russia and the Trump Campaign. As many are now finding out, however, there was tremendous leaking, lying and corruption at the highest levels of the FBI, Justice & State. #DrainTheSwamp — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 17, 2018 Trump's toadie Devin Nunes ended the House Intelligence Committee's Russia probe without interviewing all witnesses or cooperating with any of the Democrats on the committee in drafting its report. Trump is now using that to discredit the entire investigation. The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime. It was based on fraudulent activities and a Fake Dossier paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC, and improperly used in FISA COURT for surveillance of my campaign. WITCH HUNT! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 18, 2018 The investigation actually began based on information from many sources, including in his own team. The FBI had found Carter Page was approached by Russian agents years before Trump's campaign. And that "Fake Dossier" was first paid for by Republicans. It was just garden variety opposition research that turned scandalous because TRUMP IS CONNECTED TO RUSSIAN CRIMINALS. (And also possibly watersports.) Why does the Mueller team have 13 hardened Democrats, some big Crooked Hillary supporters, and Zero Republicans? Another Dem recently added...does anyone think this is fair? And yet, there is NO COLLUSION! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 18, 2018 Zero Republicans? Mueller is a Republican. Also, all his bosses are Republicans. James Comey is a Republican. Andrew McCabe is a Republican. The FBI is FILLED with Republicans. Separate from that though... the notion that Democrats can't serve their country as law enforcement agents is despicable, tyrannical garbage. What he really means is, if anyone ever disagrees with him or accuses him of crimes, even with evidence, they're biased. BULLSHIT. A total WITCH HUNT with massive conflicts of interest! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 19, 2018 This is totally what innocent people say... Team Trump keeps trying to have it both ways, saying Trump is just kidding or merely expressing feelings on his Twitter account when they want the American people to look away -- but also referring the press to it for his official statements. Also, Trump does make announcements on it, like when he fired Rex Tillerson. So as unhinged as it is, this is Trump's official word. Related: Trump Got PISSED After Sanders Accidentally Told The Wrong Lies About Stormy Daniels 3.) Even one of Trump's lawyers, John Dowd, called for the end of the Mueller probe this weekend. He declared to CNN in a statement: "I pray that Acting Attorney General Rosenstein will follow the brilliant and courageous example of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and bring an end to alleged Russia collusion investigation manufactured by McCabe's boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt dossier." That's the President's personal lawyer saying that. 4.) What happened Monday morning was even more concrete. Trump hired yet another lawyer Joseph diGenova, who has previously been all over Fox News claiming the FBI and DOJ are trying to frame Trump. Back in late 2016 and early 2017, he said the same about Comey -- before Trump fired him. diGenova is being hired to spread the word. They're all getting the message out to the American people: it's OK to fire Mueller because the probe is bogus. This is FOR SURE about to happen. And it's apparently going to happen soon. All this nonsense seemed to ramp up right after Mueller's team sent Trump's lawyers a list of questions they would ask him in the interview he said he wanted to do. So once again, the question is WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?? [Image via Ron Sachs/Alex Edelman//CNP/Media Punch.].....»»

For a sketch (above) for the Inner Circle press dinner in 2000, Rudy dressed up as a woman and participated in some flirtatious banter with The Apprentice alum. (We've seen this before, but this week's news has brought it back into viral rotation.) In typical Trump fashion, the businessman took things too far and groped the legal expert. Although this was all clearly scripted, it just shows the type of men these politicians are. Sexual assault isn't funny, but obviously they think it is. We wonder what other illegal behavior they think is acceptable?? We guess we'll find out in the weeks to come........»»

Taylor Swift"s Groping Trial: Day Three Recap

On Wednesday, Taylor Swift posted up in court once again to face off with the Denver DJ, David Mueller, who she claims "grabbed her ass" during a meet and greet back in 2013.

The radio show host has since accused the singer of slander, to which she counter-sued him for sexual assault and battery. Today started off with a 45-minute sidebar conference without any press present in the court room before Mueller was cross-examined by Swift's attorney, Doug Baldridge. Baldridge attacked Mueller's claim that Swift's accusations "rendered him unemployable" -- when in fact, the personality only submitted himself for 20 jobs in the top markets. Mueller agreed there are "around 200" markets across the U.S. Related: Amber Rose Seeking Restraining Order Against Wiz Khalifa's Mom! The attorney also added that Swift intentionally did not go public with what happened initially after the incident -- and that it was Mueller's own actions that got him fired from KYGO. Later, Mueller's lawyer Gabe McFarland asked his client to describe the moment the infamous picture was taken once again -- to which he responded: "I was several feet away from the girls — I'm sorry, ladies — and because I'm a larger man, I thought it best to close my hand so as to not poke Taylor." Meanwhile, T.Swift -- who wore a cream-colored dress and black blazer -- sat there intently listening and taking notes after everything Mueller said. Slay, bb. McFarland concluded: "Mueller has been hurt and wants his good name back and he wants to be fairly compensated for income he lost and ability to earn income in the future." Next up, Taylor's mom, Andrea, took the stand. The singer's momma said she was disgusted when she heard her famous daughter's account of what happened: "I was upset to the point where I wanted to vomit and cry at the same time ... We absolutely wanted to keep it private but we did not want him to get away with it." She later pointed at Mueller, emotionally saying: "I knew what happened. I heard it directly from my daughter's mouth ... He sexually assault her right there that guy." Wow! Stay tuned as this trial is ongoing... [Image via mpiPGSK/Media Punch.].....»»

Taylor Swift Fans Going Hard At The Radio Station That Hired Groper — And Its Trump-Supporting Owner!

The DJ who lost his court case against Taylor Swift, in which she claimed he groped her and he claimed she was lying to get him fired, is back.

In case you hadn't heard, David Mueller just got himself another radio job. Or rather Stonewall Jackson did -- that's the fake name he's going by on the Jackson & Jonbob show on Kix 92.7 WMYQ in Mississippi. He started Monday morning. Related: Mueller Did Finally Pay Taylor That Dollar, But... When asked about the controversial decision to hire Mueller, Delta Radio president and CEO Larry Fuss told the NY Daily News: "I sat down with him face-to-face in Minneapolis before I offered him the job and talked to him about it. He's either the world's best liar, or he's telling the truth. I tend to believe his version of the story and most people who have talked to him face-to-face do believe his version of the story." Not most people in a court of law apparently! Taylor's fans were understandably outraged and have been posting on the station's site and sending Fuss emails, something he is NOT happy about. Shockingly, the man who chose "Making Local Radio Great Again" as his business's motto, was dismissive and demeaning: "Most of them need to get a life. Most of the response I have seen this morning— there's been quite a few on our Facebook page, and none of it is radio people, none of it is local people in Mississippi. It's all originating from some Taylor Swift fan group somewhere. They're telling people to go to this station's webpage and post negative comments. It's just people who don't have a clue, or don't really have any knowledge of the facts." Actually, these fans follow Taylor closely and are probably more up-to-date on the court case than someone who just asked the DJ "Did you do it" and took his word as gospel. See what some Swifties have to say to Fuss (below): Contact the radio station that hired David Mueller (asshole): Kix 92.7 Office: 662-394-8865 Corporate Headquarters: (702) 898-4669 Headquarters Email: larry@deltaradio.net — lilly (@taylenahq) January 30, 2018 contact info for delta radio who is in charge of the station hiring david mueller. pic.twitter.com/jMWyxmlIY7 — brina🧠 (@SWIFTSODOPE) January 30, 2018 This is the email I wrote to Larry Fuss, the CEO of the Delta Radio Network, about hiring David Mueller, Taylor’s sexual aggressor.

Taylor Swift"s Backstage Photographer Allegedly Saw David Mueller "Grab Her Ass"

It doesn't look good for David Mueller… As we reported, on the fourth day of her groping trial against the DJ, Taylor Swift — wearing a "black knee length floral dress, platform black open toe heels" and carrying a "tan top handled purse" — testified in court saying, "he grabbed my bare ass."

As we reported, on the fourth day of her groping trial against the DJ, Taylor Swift -- wearing a "black knee length floral dress, platform black open toe heels" and carrying a "tan top handled purse" -- testified in court saying, "he grabbed my bare ass." In 2015, the Denver-based disc jockey sued the Shake It Off singer for losing his job after being wrongfully accused of groping her at a 2013 meet-and-greet. Swift countersued, claiming there was in fact an assault. Related: Taylor & Joe Alwyn Hide From The Paparazzi! Later on in the fourth day, the musician's backstage photographer Stephanie Simbeck took the stand and confirmed Taylor's story. According to BuzzFeed News, she told jurors: "I saw it happen. I saw his hand grab her ass." After the alleged assault occurred, the pop star looked back at Simbeck's photo and identified Mueller as the offender. Additionally, KYGO vice president Robert Call -- the executive who fired the DJ -- says he terminated David because of the photo that allegedly shows Mueller groping Swift. Call says his hand was "in my mind, without question, behind Ms. Swift's rear end." When confronted with the allegation, Robert says David changed his story, another reason why he had to let him go. Lastly, KYGO Program Director Eddie Haskell -- who once managed Mueller -- told reporters outside of the courtroom he couldn't believe David suggested he was the one who groped Swift. Mueller told jurors Eddie allegedly asked if Taylor was wearing bike shorts under her dress. Haskell says he was referring to how she dealt with costume changes on tour, adding: "Really, to me, it was disgusting to make those comments because I still see her as a little 15-year-old girl."

On Friday, the 27-year-old singer's sexual assault lawsuit against the Denver DJ (who is denying all accusations and suing Tay for slander) continued with more testimonies from both sides of the aisle. First to take the stand was Swift's bodyguard Gregory Dent, who allegedly witnessed the incident first hand back in 2013. Related: Lena Dunham Sings Taylor's Praises! According to BuzzFeed News, Dent told the court he "knows" he saw Mueller put his hand under Taylor's skirt before taking the now-infamous photo. He went on to add: "I didn't do anything because sometimes she said I was a little too mean ... I can't tell you how long his hand was there. I just can tell you he put his hand under her skirt, she pushed it down, and jumped." When Mueller's attorney asked Dent why he didn't do anything after seeing what happened, the security professional said: "I take my cues from her and she continued with the photo." The next person to take the stand was Mueller's former KYGO co-host Ryan Kliesch, who said he had never witnessed the DJ being disrespectful to women. It only takes once, buddy. Anyway, next up on the stand was Mueller's ex-girlfriend Shannon Melcher, who was also pictured in the meet and greet photo with Swift and Mueller. Melcher testified that "the photo happened very quickly" and she wasn't "paying attention to what [Mueller] was doing." She explained: "I did not, of course I was facing forward, I don't have eyes in the back of my head." Channeling her inner Swift sass, we see! The trial is ongoing. More details to come...

So Much For A "WITCH HUNT!" Trump Administration Announces Sanctions Against Russians Listed In Mueller Indictment!

Trump's Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced on Thursday they will finally enact sanctions on Russian agents (a month and a half after the Congressional deadline btw) for their "attempted interference in US elections, destructive cyber-attacks, and intrusions targeting critical infrastructure." Five entities and 19 individuals will be barred from traveling in the U.S. and have all their stateside assets frozen, which should stop them from being about to continue their actions. Video: Trump Admits To Making Up Facts In Meeting With Justin Trudeau Those sanctioned include the troll farm known as the Internet Research Agency, which spread divisive rhetoric mostly in Trump's favor during the election, and one of its financial backers, Yevgeniy Viktorovich Prigozhin -- a friend of Putin. If any of that sounds familiar, it's probably because it's the same people Robert Mueller indicted a few weeks ago -- along with 13 others also named in today's sanctions -- as part of the investigation Trump keeps calling an all-caps "WITCH HUNT!" and has tried multiple times to end. Oh BTW, this is not even close to the list of names for possible sanctions Treasury released back in January, which was apparently just a cut-and-paste job of Forbes' list of Russian billionaires. No, this is much closer to Mueller's indictments. Which leads to the question -- would this have gotten done at all without the Mueller probe??? But there's more we didn't know... According to these sanctions, the Russians didn't just attack our elections -- they attempted to hack the U.S. energy grid! If they succeed in such an attack, not only could they knock out your power for potentially weeks -- imagine that! -- it would also cost thousands of American lives in hospitals without access to electricity.

Getting the picture now, Trump? RUSSIA IS NOT OUR FRIEND! Sanctions aren't just important as punishment, they actually make it far more difficult for these attacks to take place. That's why Congress agreed to them with an overwhelming majority last year. Why Trump delayed so long is anyone's guess... Anyone at all. Mueller? Mueller? Mueller?

Turns Out Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen Has Been "Under Criminal Investigation" For MONTHS!

We began the week with the news that Donald Trump's longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen was raided by FBI agents. We learned right away this was not part of the Mueller Probe but rather the U.S. Attorney's office in Manhattan had obtained a warrant after a tip from Mueller, who apparently came across evidence of crimes [...] We began the week with the news that Donald Trump's longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen was raided by FBI agents. We learned right away this was not part of the Mueller Probe but rather the U.S. Attorney's office in Manhattan had obtained a warrant after a tip from Mueller, who apparently came across evidence of crimes that had nothing to do with their mandate of investigating obstruction and collusion. Over the next few hours and days we heard more about specifically investigators were looking for -- we heard it related to Stormy Daniels, Karen McDougal, even the Access Hollywood tape! Related: Did Trump Have An Illegitimate Child With A Maid?! Now, thanks to new court filings we have a better idea. Cohen's lawyers (and one of Trump's) argued in Manhattan on Friday to block any use of evidence obtained as part of the searches of Cohen's home, office, hotel room, safety deposit box, and cell phones. In response (as much to Trump's incessant attacks on Mueller as to the legal motion, really), prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney's office revealed he had actually been "under criminal investigation" for months: "Although Cohen is an attorney, he also has several other business interests and sources of income. The searches are the result of a months-long investigation into Cohen and seek evidence of crimes, many of which have nothing to do with his work as an attorney, but rather relate to Cohen's own business dealings." Looks like whatever Mueller found only bolstered their case. Related: Comey Details POTUS' Obsession With Pee Tape In New Book! Hilariously, prosecutors also slammed Cohen's claims of attorney-client privilege. Why? They said Cohen had actually done "little to no legal work, and that zero emails were exchanged with President Trump." Um, what?? That's right. See, Cohen was less of a lawyer to Trump and more of a "fixer." He liked to refer to himself as Trump's "Ray Donovan." And it turns out there's no such thing as Donovan-client privilege. Also, there are reports Cohen has told people Trump is his only client, which if true would mean he didn't have privilege with any of his other communications or recordings either. In any case, as previously reported, all seized materials are subject to review by a special "taint team" (make your own joke) to make sure they're not protected. Cohen has not yet been charged with any crimes, but at this point it's a foregone conclusion. Sad! [Image via Twitter.].....»»
