Palmer Report: U.S. military veteran to Donald Trump: back off John McCain

I am a veteran who proudly served the United States Army for more than thirteen years, with two tours to Afghanistan under my belt. I believe no matter what, veterans should stick together, even with our disagreements in politics. Now I am calling for all veterans to come together and demand that President Trump show the recently departed Senator John McCain some respect and dignity, especially for his honorable service to our country.



It’s no surprise to me now that Trump has no respect for veterans. His worship of our flag doesn’t cut it. He wanted a parade that was supposed to support the military and veterans, but in reality it was there to boost his ego, which shows no respect to veterans. And most of all, dodging the draft five times brings no honor to Trump and his fake love for the military.




The list goes on, but this is about Senator John McCain. It’s okay to respectfully state your opinion on how he did as a Senator, but these personal attacks go on and on. This incitement of hate from Trump encourages his supporters to bring that hate towards McCain’s family, particularly his daughter Meghan, and his wife Cindy. As stressful as losing family members can be, they don’t need to be trolled with hateful messages, tweets or articles.


I have learned in Chaplain Assistant School that one of our primary roles in the Chaplain Corps is to honor the dead. I am calling on all veterans to come together and demand that Trump stop these hateful attacks on John McCain. These attacks are a disgrace to the Oval Office, to our military and veterans and to our country.

Palmer Report: Donald Trump’s new “witch hunt report” is one of his most bizarre moves yet

Spread the Knowledge

As his scandals continue to close in on him, Donald Trump’s behavior in recent days has become more strange than ever. He’s attacked deceased war hero John McCain four times in the past week. He’s attacked the husband of one of his senior advisers. As Trump becomes more frantic, can he top all this in the weirdness department? He may have just done precisely that.



This evening Donald Trump sent out an email to his supporters with the subject line “Witch Hunt Report Attached.” The subject line also includes an image of a paperclip, aimed at tricking recipients into believing that a document of some kind has been attached to the email. Then the first line of the email says “[SORRY THIS DOCUMENT IS BLANK].” Wait, what?




After the weird fake-out that even Trump’s own base probably isn’t gullible enough to fall for, the email then claims that “loser Democrats and their friends in the Fake News Media” have been claiming that “they plan to release the report ‘soon’ but they’ve been saying that for OVER 2 YEARS.” This is weird, considering the report will be released by Robert Mueller and the Department of Justice, not the “loser Democrats” or the “Fake News Media.”


Of course this entire bizarre email turns out to be an attempt at luring recipients into taking a poll about whether the “Witch Hunt” should end. It’s all part of a Trump 2020 campaign fundraiser. The timing is interesting when you consider that Donald Trump is trying to fundraise off the premise that he’s done nothing wrong, even as Forbes reported yesterday that Trump has funneled more than a million dollars of these donations into his own businesses.

Palmer Report: Elijah Cummings targets Jared Kushner in WhatsApp scandal

Spread the Knowledge

Even as Jerry Nadler’s House Judiciary Committee pushes forward with its broad investigation into numerous Donald Trump-related scandals, Elijah Cummings’ House Oversight Committee is focusing in on more specific scandals. Today, Cummings is targeting Jared Kushner over allegations that Kushner has been using personal email and an encrypted messaging service to communicate with foreign leaders.



Elijah Cummings is citing a meeting that he had with Kushner attorney Abbe Lowell back in December, which up to now wasn’t public knowledge. According to Cummings, Lowell admitted during the meeting that Jared Kushner uses the encrypted social media platform WhatsApp to communicate with world leaders, as reported by USA Today. This raises concerns on three levels. First, there is the question of whether this practice violates federal record keeping laws. Kushner claims he screen-shots all of his WhatsApp messages and submits them for collection. If this proves true, it would probably be compliant with the law.




Second, there is the question of whether this practice is safe. According to Cummings, Kushner’s attorney said in December that he didn’t know whether or not Kushner was transmitting classified information via WhatsApp. This would raise various security issues. It’s also worth pointing out that Donald Trump routinely vilified his opponent Hillary Clinton for allegedly transmitting classified information via a private email server.


Third, according to a new report from Politico, Jared Kushner “reportedly has communicated with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman via WhatsApp.” Considering that the Crown Price is widely believed to have been behind the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, we expect Elijah Cummings to ask a whole lot of questions going forward about those WhatsApp conversations. Stay tuned.
