Trump going full Streisand with this Russia thing.

Lol at the WH leaks with their brilliant strategy to prove a humanitarian emergency. Trump is so bad at law. He doesn't so much not know anything as have negative knowledge. In the same way he has negative knowledge about how to make money with a business.

My only satisfaction, assuming he does not end his days on public display in prison, is that he's basically currently living on public display in prison.

Trump team should be allowed to ‘correct’ final Mueller report, says Giuliani
Rudy Giuliani says President Trump’s legal team should be allowed to “correct” special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report before Congress or the American people get the chance to read it.

The claim, made in a telephone interview with The Hill on Thursday evening, goes further than the president’s legal advisers have ever gone before in arguing they have a right to review the conclusions of Mueller’s probe, which is now in its 20th month.

“As a matter of fairness, they should show it to you — so we can correct it if they’re wrong,” said the former New York City mayor, who is a member of Trump's personal legal team. “They’re not God, after all. They could be wrong.”

The special counsel's office declined to comment.

In the wide-ranging interview, Giuliani also made light of the decision by Michael Cohen — Trump’s former attorney, who was recently sentenced to three years in prison — to testify in public before the House Oversight and Reform Committee on Feb. 7.

“Big deal!” Giuliani exclaimed sarcastically.

He also downplayed this week’s revelation that the president’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, allegedly shared opinion poll data during the 2016 campaign with Konstantin Kilimnik, a Russian citizen who had previously worked with Manafort in Ukraine and is suspected of having ties to Russia’s military intelligence unit, the GRU.

“Should he have done it? No. But there’s nothing criminal about it,” Giuliani said.

This is occasion 274,646 where this forum shows it could cover Trump better than the press.

Imagine if all the articles on the shutdown included this quote in full??

With as little disrespect as possible meant towards Jman and others, it's stuff like this that has caused me to lose whatever respect I might have had for the legal profession. Rudy and his type are little more than crappy used car salesmen grifters that ran good and somehow ended up where they are now.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Trump has concealed details of his face-to-face encounters with Putin from senior officials in administration
President Trump has gone to extraordinary lengths to conceal details of his conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin, including on at least one occasion taking possession of the notes of his own interpreter and instructing the linguist not to discuss what had transpired with other administration officials, current and former U.S. officials said.

Trump did so after a meeting with Putin in 2017 in Hamburg that was also attended by then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. U.S. officials learned of Trump’s actions when a White House adviser and a senior State Department official sought information from the interpreter beyond a readout shared by Tillerson.

The constraints that Trump imposed are part of a broader pattern by the president of shielding his communications with Putin from public scrutiny and preventing even high-ranking officials in his own administration from fully knowing what he has told one of the United States’ main adversaries.

As a result, U.S. officials said there is no detailed record, even in classified files, of Trump’s face-to-face interactions with the Russian leader at five locations over the past two years. Such a gap would be unusual in any presidency, let alone one that Russia sought to install through what U.S. intelligence agencies have described as an unprecedented campaign of election interference.

They are going to issue refunds during the shutdown, but as far as I know the employees aren't getting paid, so either there will be delays or maybe they will just say f it and rubber stamp everything.

Joe Biden is still the favorite to win Democrat’s nomination IMO. I almost want to take him against Dem field but I think he has more like 20% equity at this point because I think he has serious doubts about running still.

Between families, employees, and contractors, millions of deplorables depend on money from the federal government.

A lot of them won’t have money to pay their bills, hurting tens of millions.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Tillerson refused to say during the news conference whether Trump had rejected Putin’s claim or indicated that he believed the conclusion of U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia had interfered.

Tillerson’s account is at odds with the only detail that other administration officials were able to get from the interpreter, officials said. Though the interpreter refused to discuss the meeting, officials said, he conceded that Putin had denied any Russian involvement in the U.S. election and that Trump responded by saying, “I believe you.”

Senior Trump administration officials said that White House officials including then-National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster were never able to obtain a comprehensive account of the meeting, even from Tillerson.

“We were frustrated because we didn’t get a readout,” a former senior administration official said. “The State Department and [National Security Council] were never comfortable” with Trump’s interactions with Putin, the official said. “God only knows what they were going to talk about or agree to.”

Because of the absence of any reliable record of Trump’s conversations with Putin, officials at times have had to rely on reports by U.S. intelligence agencies tracking the reaction in the Kremlin.

Previous presidents and senior advisers have often studied such reports to assess whether they had accomplished their objectives in meetings as well as to gain insights for future conversations.

U.S. intelligence agencies have been reluctant to call attention to such reports during Trump’s presidency because they have at times included comments by foreign officials disparaging the president or his advisers, including his son-in-law Jared Kushner, a former senior administration official said.

“There was more of a reticence in the intelligence community going after those kinds of communications and reporting them,” said a former administration official who worked in the White House. “The feedback tended not to be positive.”

IANAL, but it seems like Trump could argue that convos between him, his interpreter, and Putin could fall under executive privilege.
