1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump needs medical attention

“President” Donald Trump needs medical attention. It is becoming increasingly clear that this administration’s corruption knows no limits and has spiraled out of control. Today’s statement by Trump that he would accept intelligence from foreign powers is astounding, as Palmer Report reported earlier.



A big reason for this is that the feckless GOP gaggle in Congress has given Trump a blank check. They have not restrained him on any level and we are now seeing the ramifications of a narcissistic yet addled individual not being checked but having hundreds of co-dependents as he takes the nation to the brink of the cliff.




Perhaps most troubling in recent days is the Department of Justice and the filings it is making on behalf of Trump under the guidance of Attorney General William “Fu” Barr. (FuBarr stands for “F’d Up Beyond All Republican Recognition.”) We are in amazingly troubling times, with the DOJ asserting in court filings that we are very close to the law providing that Supreme Court justices must release their financial statements – perhaps a warning or “shot across the bow” towards the newest Justice to have joined the Court – and also stating that only the Executive Branch could determine if it had violated law. Trump takes the preposterous position that except for impeachment proceedings, Congress has no power in the efforts it is undertaking in “trying to prove that the President broke the law” and that such investigative powers are “an exercise of law enforcement authority that the Constitution reserves to the executive branch.”


These are signs of Trump being on a crazy dictatorial train, and the conductor and engineers being the GOP. Neal Katayal and George Conway wrote a fabulous editorial on the issue today, but there is not a single SOB in the GOP who’s willing to stand up against this.

Trump’s Lawyers Are Practically Daring Congress To Impeach Him

Donald Trump’s lawyers are all but daring Congress to launch an impeachment inquiry into the president’s alleged crimes.

On May 20, U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta knocked down the dubious argument made by Trump’s lawyers that Congress has no “legitimate legislative purpose” to obtain the president’s financial records, which have been subpoenaed by the Oversight and Reform Committee. Mehta ruled that Congress has broad investigatory powers that should not solely be limited to impeachment.

“It is simply not fathomable that a Constitution that grants Congress the power to remove a President for reasons including criminal behavior would deny Congress the power to investigate him for unlawful conduct — past or present — even without formally opening an impeachment inquiry,” Mehta wrote.

In their brief filed Monday with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit challenging a congressional subpoena for financial records held by Trump’s accounting firm, the president’s lawyers argued that the court should not consider the inherent “non-legislative powers” of Congress ― impeachment ― if it is not actively going down that path. The brief goes on to cite Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) repeated denials that the House is engaged in impeachment proceedings for the president.

Trump’s lawyers also argued that Mehta had no right to invoke the impeachment power in ruling for Congress, when the Oversight and Reform Committee did not mention impeachment in its brief before Mehta or in its subpoena for the documents. In doing so, the president’s lawyers are directly arguing that Congress would have more authority if they were to subpoena for documents as part of an impeachment inquiry. “[T]he Constitution also grants Congress non-legislative powers,” the brief states, adding, “And the House and Senate can, respectively, impeach and try impeachments.”



ASSOCIATED PRESS

“If you open an impeachment inquiry, do you get more information?” Pelosi said during a CNN interview on Tuesday. “You still end up in the court.”

Absent impeachment, Congress’ subpoena of the president’s financial records from his accounting firm Mazars USA LLP should be held invalid as the Oversight and Reform Committee has no legitimate legislative reason to obtain them, Trump’s lawyers continue to argue, as they did before losing in district court.

The committee has provided numerous legislative reasons to subpoena Trump’s financial records in its legal briefs. Specifically, the committee says it is pursuing the records to determine if the president lied on his mandatory annual financial disclosure reports and whether any legislation is necessary to fix any loopholes or provide more transparency on presidential finances. The committee passed the For The People Act in 2019 to expand disclosure requirements and provide statutory support for the Foreign Emoluments Clause in the Constitution.

Trump’s lawyers, however, argue that these legislative purposes should be discarded because, according to them, they are unconstitutional. In fact, the president’s lawyers say the already existing presidential financial disclosure laws are unconstitutional.

The president lost using these arguments before Mehta and also in a separate district court case regarding a subpoena for the president’s bank records.

“[T]here can be little doubt that Congress’s interest in the accuracy of the President’s financial disclosures falls within the legislative sphere,” Mehta wrote.

These cases appear headed to the Supreme Court and Trump’s appeal brief contains a Trumpian appeal to the personal interest of the justices there.

It argues that justices should be concerned about Congress subpoenaing their personal financial records if they allow the subpoena for Trump’s financial information to stand. That’s because the justices are already covered by congressionally enacted financial disclosure laws. Additionally, the House-passed For The People Act contains provisions extending judicial ethics codes to the Supreme Court.

“[R]eplace ‘President’ with ‘Justices’ and [Mehta’s ruling] would, without question, authorize a congressional subpoena for the Justices’ accounting records— even for many years before they joined the Court,” Trump’s lawyers argue.

Trump wants to make sure that when the Supreme Court considers his personal financial records, they think of their own, too.

Michael Novakhov – SharedNewsLinks℠: Adam Schiff threatens to subpoena FBI director Chris Wray

Michael_Novakhov shared this story .

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff threatened to subpoena FBI Director Christopher Wray for what he says is the bureau’s failure to inform Congress about the status of a counterintelligence investigation into links between President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia.
“We’re running out of patience,” said Schiff Wednesday, who added he’s been seeking the information for months and has been rebuffed, despite requirements that the FBI keep Congress apprised of counterintelligence matters. He said the FBI has issued boilerplate non-responses to his inquiries and that he’ll issue a subpoena soon if they don’t produce more information.
Story Continued Below
“If we don’t get an answer soon, we’ll be issuing subpoenas,” he said.
Schiff’s comments followed a hearing of the Intelligence Committee that focused on evidence gathered by special counsel Robert Mueller that point toward concerns that Russia may have compromised — wittingly or unwittingly — members of Trump’s orbit. Though Mueller concluded he couldn’t establish a conspiracy between Trump campaign figures and Russia, his report was largely silent on the counterintelligence efforts.
The hearing, featuring a panel of veteran national security experts, laid bare the deep partisan rupture in Congress over Mueller’s report. Republicans on the panel asked virtually no questions about potential counterintelligence risks but trained their energy on poking holes in the FBI’s handling of the probe.
GOP members of the panel questioned whether figures identified in Mueller’s report as key links between the Trump campaign and Russia were really assets of the West. They suggested the FBI botched its counterintelligence and surveillance procedures in the conduct of their investigation of these links. And one, Rep. Rick Crawford of Arkansas, even suggested Obama administration figures intentionally “turned a blind eye” to Russian interference in the 2016 election, believing it would help Hillary Clinton.
Schiff, at one point, accused GOP colleagues of effectively urging people to “ignore everything Mueller has to say … because they have problems with aspects of the [surveillance] application.”
Even Republicans’ own selected witness, former prosecutor Andy McCarthy, at times undercut accusations that have become articles of faith to Trump and his allies.
McCarthy said he didn’t think any FBI officials or Justice Department figures acted “in bad faith” when they sought to surveil a Trump campaign associate. He said they made “mistakes,” but not intentional ones. “I don’t think anyone was acting in bad faith on the FISA warrant,” he said. Trump and his allies on Capitol Hill have argued that the FBI’s pursuit of the warrant on Page is proof they were seeking to damage Trump’s campaign in the run-up to the election. But there, too, McCarthy said otherwise.
“I don’t know that there’s evidence [FBI officials] were trying to scuttle the Trump campaign,” he said.
McCarthy also said that Trump campaign figures should have called the FBI when a Russian lawyer visited Trump Tower to ostensibly provide information meant to damage Clinton. And he contradicted the notion — espoused by Trump — that the Obama administration took no action to counter Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“They took some investigative steps,” McCarthy said, though he added that they may have proven insufficient because the administration was concerned about appearing “to be putting their thumb on the scale in an investigative way versus how do we stop what Russia is doing. You can certainly argue about the value judgment.”
Democrats spent Wednesday’s hearing working methodically to elevate Mueller’s evidence that the Trump campaign welcomed Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election and sought to benefit from it. They leaned on a panel of veteran national security experts to delve into each facet of Mueller’s findings – from the interactions between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower to Paul Manafort’s sharing of polling data with a Russia-linked associate to the elder Trump’s effort to build a tower in Moscow.
Republicans asked no questions on these subjects but instead questioned decision-making at the FBI – from former FBI Director James Comey’s decision to delay informing Congress about the Russia investigation, to the bureau’s reliance on former British spy Christopher Steele’s memos to obtain a surveillance warrant against Trump campaign associate Carter Page and the decision to decline to inform the Trump campaign that some of its officials were being investigated.
Story Continued Below
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the top Republican on the committee, ripped Mueller’s report as a “shoddy political hit piece” that “provided no useful information” about why it labeled certain figures as Russian assets, including Joseph Mifsud, whose interactions with Trump campaign associate George Papadopoulos led the FBI to open its investigation.
“Mueller stops short of calling Mifsud a Russian agent,” Nunes said. “My big concern about Mifsud is he was a Malta diplomat, he worked closely with the Italian government. He’s described in the press as a Western intelligence asset — by some in the press.”
Mueller’s report describes Mifsud as “a London-based professor who had connections to Russia and traveled to Moscow in April 2016.” He allegedly told Papadopoulos before it was known that Russians had obtained emails that would damage Hillary Clinton’s candidacy.
No other Republicans on the Intelligence Committee went as far as Nunes in slamming Mueller’s findings, but they repeatedly wondered why the FBI didn’t share information about its investigation with Trump’s campaign.
“If someone in my campaign was doing something nefarious … I would sure hope I was informed,” said Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio).
Schiff said the panel’s next hearing would focus on Russia’s intrusion into local election systems and whether the FBI followed Mueller’s leads.
Though the Republican push largely aligned with Trump’s mantra to keep the focus on investigators he has accused of leading a “witch hunt” against him, at times, they too broke from his arguments.
Nunes, questioning the FBI’s decisions to investigate former national security adviser Michael Flynn or his interactions with Russia’s ambassador, said he didn’t think former secretary of state John Kerry should be investigated for his own interactions with Iranians. Trump, a month earlier, said Kerry should be prosecuted for those meetings.
After Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) questioned decision to delay briefing Congress on the existence of the Russia probe until early 2017 – days before he made the probe public — Schiff corrected her to say her timeline was incorrect.
“The representative is not accurate,” he said, but added he was unable to provide details.
