Remember that letter from Trump Junior claiming that his meeting with the Russian lawyer was all about adoptions? Yeah, The Donald wrote that.

Courtesy of WaPo: 

On the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Germany last month, President Trump’s advisers discussed how to respond to a new revelation that Trump’s oldest son had met with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign — a disclosure the advisers knew carried political and potentially legal peril. 

The strategy, the advisers agreed, should be for Donald Trump Jr. to release a statement to get ahead of the story. They wanted to be truthful, so their account couldn’t be repudiated later if the full details emerged. 

But within hours, at the president’s direction, the plan changed. 

Flying home from Germany on July 8 aboard Air Force One, Trump personally dictated a statement in which Trump Jr. said that he and the Russian lawyer had “primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children” when they met in June 2016, according to multiple people with knowledge of the deliberations. 

The statement, issued to the New York Times as it prepared an article, emphasized that the subject of the meeting was “not a campaign issue at the time.” The claims were later shown to be misleading.

It should be pointed out that this was immediately after Trump took that meeting with Vladimir Putin, during which Putin apparently talked to Trump about "adoptions." 

In other words Trump used language provided by Putin to issue a false statement about a meeting that his son, and other campaign personnel, had with Russian operatives during the 2016 campaign.

And this was after he fired James Comey for refusing to halt an investigation into his campaign's ties to Russia.

Like I said before, the evidence for collusion can literally be found everywhere.

    Donald Trump was personally supervising the White House effort to bury the Russia scandal by creating fake news that blamed murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich for the 2016 election hacks.

    The first page of the lawsuit quotes a voicemail and text from Butowsky boasting that President Trump himself had reviewed drafts of the Fox News story just before it went to air and was published.

    ….Butowsky also texted Wheeler: “Not to add any more pressure but the president just read the article. He wants the article out immediately. It’s now all up to you.”


    The Fox News Channel and a wealthy supporter of President Trump worked in concert under the watchful eye of the White House to concoct a story about the murder of a young Democratic National Committee aide, according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday. The explosive claim is part of the lawsuit filed against Fox News by Rod Wheeler, a longtime paid commentator for the news network.

    Butowsky wrote: “president [Trump] just read the article. He wants the article out immediately. It’s now all up to you. But don’t feel the pressure.”
    “A couple minutes ago I got a note that we have the full, uh, attention of the White House, on this,” Butowsky allegedly said in a voicemail that same day, according to the lawsuit. “And, tomorrow, let’s close this deal, whatever we’ve got to do. But you can feel free to say that the White House is onto this now.”

    Trump’s Lawyer Denied The President Helped Draft Trump Jr.’s Statement Just Weeks Ago

    At least twice Sekulow denied that the president had anything to do with the statement his elder son had issued. The statement caused a firestorm in the media because it was so different from those Trump Jr. had made in the previous 24 hours.

    “I do want to be clear ― the president was not involved in the drafting of the statement and did not issue the statement,” Sekulow told NBC’s Chuck Todd on July 16. “It came from Donald Trump Jr. ... It was, in fact, from him and I believe it was his lawyer was in consultation.”

      But I want to say one thing to the American people. I want you to listen to me. I'm going to say this again: I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky. I never told anybody to lie. Not a single time. Never. These allegations are false. And I need to go back to work for the American people.

      Looks like Donnie The Rumop Jr. doesn't want to take teh fall for The Rump Sr. Hey Donald, how doe those bus tires feel?

    6. So you've NEVER EVER EVER EVUH watched "Cheaters"?

      Bill Clinton lied about a blow job. He attempted to deceived his wife, daughter, and American people about a fellatio. Or as Scaramucci would say, "Monica sucked Bill's co¢k."

      But in no way are Bill Clinton's transgressions equal to Donald Trump's crimes and misdemeanors. He has betrayed his oath of office, been criminally and treasonously disloyal to these United States, and violated every democratic principle endowed in the US Constitution. He is a disgrace!

    7. Anonymous7:44 PM

      Yeah. Getting a blowjob from Monica Lewinsky is way different than giving one to Vladimir Putin.

    8. 1. There are some people that don't believe that getting a blowjob is the same as having sex. No penetration, no sex.

      2. Everyone lies about sex. If anyone were questioned in public, on the record, under oath about sex, they'd lie. Except maybe the Pope.

      3. It was a witch hunt for the sole purpose of getting Clinton to lie under oath.

      Having sex has nothing to do with the job of president. Plenty of presidents have had affairs and possibly even had sex in the Oval Office. Having sex isn't an impeachable offense. So they had to corner Bill into committing an impeachable offense. And all the while Newt Gingrich was doing the exact same thing. The Republicans have always been the party of liars and hypocrites.

      And I've had my fill with the finger pointing at Bill Clinton when that giant Orange Asshole Traitor is in the White House selling us out to Putin. And probably having an affair with that little piece of T&A he brought with him from Trump Tower.

    Buttfuckery err "wealthy Dallas investor and unpaid Fox financial commentator Ed Butowsky" gets a name drop or two! For some reason Buttfuckery err Ed Butowsky has apparently DELETED his twitter account also too!


    "Sean Spicer, the former White House press secretary, confirms that officials in the West Wing were briefed on a since-retracted Fox News report pushing a murder conspiracy involving a slain DNC staffer.

    A lawsuit filed Tuesday by former homicide detective Rod Wheeler claims Fox News distorted his findings alleges that President Donald Trump personally reviewed the report before it aired May 15.

    Spicer told NPR, which reported the lawsuit, that he was unaware of any contact involving the president — but he admits he was briefed.

    He admits to meeting April 20 at the White House with wealthy Dallas investor and unpaid Fox financial commentator Ed Butowsky and Wheeler, a former detective and paid commentator since 2005 for the news network.

    “Ed’s been a longtime supporter of the president and asked to meet to catch up,” Spicer told NPR on Monday. “I didn’t know who Rod Wheeler was. Once we got into my office, [Butowsky] said, ‘I’m sure you recognize Rod Wheeler from Fox News.'”"

    But thanks to the magic that is the internet and archives Mr Buttfuckery err Ed Butowsky's deleted twitter account lives on!

    “This is bad”: prominent Donald Trump supporter dejectedly says Anthony Scaramucci firing is a disaster

    ...Alt-right conspiracy theorist Mike Cernovich, whose blog more or less exists to try to further Donald Trump’s agenda, had a startled response to Trump’s hiring of Scaramucci. He began by tweeting that “The loss of Mooch is devasting for reasons I can’t go into. He was going to run next generation media strategy. No way to spin, this is bad.” He then took what appeared to be a thinly veiled shot at Trump’s character: “Mooch sold his company, and this is what happens. After this, only swamp monsters and those without other options will work for Trump WH.”

    Me: So what’s the plan?

    Him: They want him outa there.

    Me: Really? Impeachment?

    Him: Doubt it, unless Mueller comes up with a smoking gun.

    Me: Or if he fires Mueller.

    Him: Not gonna happen.

    Me: So how do they get him out?

    Him: Put someone else up in ’20. Lots of maneuvering already. Pence, obviously. Cruz thinks he has a shot.

    Me: But that won’t help them in the midterms. What’s the plan before then?

    Him: Lots think he’s fritzing out.

    Me: Fritzing out?

    Him: Going totally bananas. Paranoia. You want to know why he fired Priebus, wants Sessions out, and is now gunning for Tillerson?

    Me: He wants to shake things up?

    Him (chuckling): No. The way I hear it, he thinks they’ve been plotting against him.

    Me: What do you mean?

    Him: Twenty-fifth amendment! Read it! A Cabinet can get rid of a president who’s nuts. Trump thinks they’ve been preparing a palace coup. So one by one, he’s firing them.

    Me: I find it hard to believe they’re plotting against him.

    Him: Of course not! It’s ludicrous. Sessions is a loyal lapdog. Tillerson doesn't know where the bathroom is. That’s my point. Trump is fritzing out. Having manic delusions. He’s actually going nuts.

    Me: And?

    Him: Well, it’s downright dangerous.

    Me: Yeah, but that still doesn’t tell me what Republicans are planning to do about it.

    Him: Look. How long do you think it will be before everyone in Washington knows he’s flipping out? I don’t mean just weird. I mean really off his rocker.

    Me: I don’t know.

    Him: No all that long.

    Me: So what are you telling me?

    Him: They don’t have to plot against him. It will be obvious to everyone that he’s got to go. That’s where the twenty-fifth amendment really does comes in.

    Me: So you think…

    Him: Who knows? But he’s losing it fast. My betting is he’s out of office before the midterms. And Pence is president.

    Me: So what's the plan?

    Him: They want him out, now.

    Me: Then why do something about it, after all this time?

    Him: Because TPTB thought he would be their useful idiot, but that isn't working out so well.

    Me: GOP not getting their agenda through, you mean?

    Him: They're in control of the Executive and Legislative branches and can't govern their way out of a paper bag.

    Me: So will the Senate impeach?

    Him: Of course not, that would taint Congress and take way too long.

    Me: Well, what then?

    Him: 25th amendment, baby. The guy is nuts, you know.

    1. Pence would have the power but Trump would still be president. He'd still have the prestige, could spend all his time riding around on Air Force One, golfing at all of his properties, giving "campaign" speeches when he needed a "They love me" fix and basically getting all of the perks with none of the work.

      Would be ideal for everyone except the American People. Trump would still be siphoning tax dollars into his pocket and we'd have Pence making war on women, LGBTQ, the poor, the sick, minorities, basically what Trump is doing only on steroids.

    Trump faces obstruction of justice claim


    1. Anonymous8:56 AM

      " Trump are reportedly concerned that he fed his son a misleading statement about a meeting during the campaign with a lawyer connected to the Russian government—a fact that could be used to allege a coverup"rump's decision to dictate that misleading statement adds to a series of actions "some advisers fear could place him and some members of his inner circle in legal jeopardy,"
      "Now someone can claim he's the one who attempted to mislead. Somebody can argue the president is saying he doesn’t want you to say the whole TRUTH."
      "There are three impeachable offenses:
      treason, bribery or the wide-ranging "other high crimes and misdemeanors." Obstruction of justice has largely been established as grounds for impeachment and was a key part of the last two times a president was impeached."Trump himself brought up the Russia investigation as a reason for firing Comey and the president has recently criticized Attorney General Jeff Sessions—who was a campaign surrogate—for recusing himself from manners related to Russia."


      "There also is no certainty yet that President Trump will be either impeached or choose to resign. But those possibilities, which 14 days ago were almost unimaginable to any informed and fair-minded observer, are now very real. Even if President Trump is able to remain in office through the end of next year, he will have been long abandoned by most serious conservatives in Congress, as the jeopardy of continued association with him becomes clear. Within a few months — and possibly in just weeks — most GOP elected officials will have acknowledged, at least privately, that Donald Trump has become the Republican Party’s greatest liability. No presidency can overcome that.

      The collapse of this administration may or may not be swift.

      But it is inevitable."

    Trump reportedly rushed fake Fox News report as he entered the most brutal week of his presidency


  19. Anonymous8:43 AM

    This means, as we already pretty much knew, that senior was hip deep in it and will have no plausible deniability.

  20. How long are Bitch McConnell, Lyin' Ryan and the rest of the Death Party going to continue to cover up and protect this lying piece of shit TRAITOR?

    There is more than enough to impeach him.

    "In the aftermath of the Senate’s failed push to repeal the Affordable Care Act, Trump on Monday revisited his oft-stated position that his administration should, instead of managing the law’s programs as well as possible, make them fail.

    In fact, Trump has gone even further than that by saying he’s considering halting payments the federal government owes health insurance companies that serve the lowest-income enrollees on the Obamacare exchanges.

    Carrying out this threat would constitute a dereliction of duty by the president, who’s sworn to uphold U.S. laws. It also would be a betrayal of the federal government’s obligations to health insurance companies acting as its business partners."


    If Trump orders or allows Obamacare to "implode" by withholding funds and support the law is supposed to provide, he is guilty of dereliction of duty, violated his oath of office and should be IMPEACHED!
