1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump runs out of gas

With the firestorm following Robert Mueller’s first public remarks on the Russia probe and the growing boldness of Democratic politicians calling for his impeachment, not to mention a trade war he caused, you’d think Donald Trump would have something else on his mind other than coercing cable news networks to broadcast his commencement speech at the Air Force Academy graduation ceremony on Thursday. But that was precisely what he directed them to do on Twitter, insisting that it would give them the ratings they need.


The cable news networks decided against this suggestion. Even Fox News, despite Donald Trump’s recent habit of lashing out at the network in the hope of more positive coverage, only aired three minutes of the nearly 30-minute long speech before cutting to other news. CNN and MSNBC instead chose to further discuss Trump’s behavior following Robert Mueller’s press conference.



When Donald Trump was on the campaign trail in 2016, the absurdity and outright bigotry of his rallies provided endless free exposure for him thanks to the major news networks, giving him a chance for his message to reach a wider platform of people. But that’s all changed, now that his speeches are no longer a ratings draw.




Despite Trump’s efforts to promote it, his Air Force Academy speech didn’t have anything noteworthy to say, aside from his embarrassing and repeated nonsensical claim that stealth planes are invisible. Trump knows things are only going to get uglier for him from here on out – particularly as congressional investigations begin to heat up and his own allies turn on each other.


Donald Trump is hoping that he can at least get some positive coverage to balance things out – a way he can appear statesmanlike and strong to his remaining supporters, a few of whom are probably growing tired of having to defend him all the time – but he’s out of ideas for how to get it. Either way, the novelty of Trump’s presidency has worn off, and it won’t be something he’ll have going for him in 2020.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: William Barr just gave the finger to a federal judge’s order – and he’s about to regret it

Spread the Knowledge

By now it’s clear that Donald Trump’s handpicked Attorney General William Barr has no interest in complying with any subpoenas, laws, or anything. He’s quickly become a one-man criminal regime when it comes to trying to protect Donald Trump from his crimes. But just now, Barr may have poked the wrong bear when he decided to give the proverbial finger to a federal judge.



William Barr and his DOJ had until the end of today to publicly release all of the Mueller report redactions that relate to Michael Flynn, along with the phone calls which Flynn had with the Russian Ambassador during the transition period. In response, today’s DOJ filing claims that there are no redacted segments of the Mueller report that relate to Flynn. The DOJ is also asserting, depending on how one parses its words, that it either doesn’t have the Flynn-Russia phone calls or doesn’t feel like turning them over.




We’re still waiting for Judge Emmet Sullivan to respond to this giant middle finger from Barr and the DOJ, but we expect imminent fireworks. Sullivan has already used this process to ask if Michael Flynn committed treason, and to demand answers as to why Flynn got such a light sentence. We won’t be surprised if Sullivan orders that the entire Mueller report be turned over, so he can personally find the Flynn redactions and publicly release them. And we won’t be entirely shocked if the judge has certain DOJ people arrested and held in contempt until they turn over the Flynn-Russia phone calls.


William Barr is already facing contempt of Congress proceedings, but that’s a vaguely defined and lumbering process that has yet to produce any punishment that would keep Barr up at night. In contrast, federal judges have much more flexibility in doling out consequences for contempt of court. We expect Judge Emmet Sullivan to make an example out of someone any minute now.
