The Trump Presidency...

He was fired for 'lack of candor' with investigators and false statements. Isn't that the same crime they have Roger stone and Flynn for ?
As always, each case turns on the facts.

The DoJ may have seen that the case against McCabe was weak, if they had a case at all. Lacking candour may not be professional if it happened at all, but may not be a prosecutable crime. It went to the grand jury and they didn't indict, probably through lack of anything to prosecute, and apparently one of the prosecutors themselves had doubts about the merits of the case.

Whereas the case against Stone was likely more credible.

And let's not forget the run up to McCabe's firing. Trump had a bee in his bonnet about McCabe and was pressuring those he could to get him fired and was gleeful when this eventually happened.

You mean like someone who has lied, made false or misleading statements more than 16,000 times, and interferes with Criminal Investigations on a regular basis?
 
Fact check New Hampshire Truppit fest this week and other BS.

THE WALL

Trump: People who are in the United States illegally are paying for his Mexico border wall.

The Pentagon announced it is taking $3.8 billion approved by Congress for fighter aircraft, ships and other military programs and using the money to pay for the wall.
U.S. taxpayers are paying for the wall, not Mexico, as has been the case from the start.


Then that switched to:
TRUMP: “You do know who’s paying for the wall, don’t you? Redemption from illegal aliens that are coming. The redemption money is paying for the wall.”


“Redemption” payments don’t exist; Trump apparently meant to cite remittances. That refers to money that immigrants in the U.S. send to their countries of origin, often to family members. Trump has at various times talked about taxing or blocking such money but that has not been done.


VOTER FRAUD

TRUMP: “Remember last time we won the primary tremendously. We should have won the election but they had buses being shipped up from Massachusetts, hundreds and hundreds of buses.”

THE FACTS: Trump is once again trafficking in the unfounded conspiracy theory that buses of illegal voters traveled in from Massachusetts in 2016 to deprive him of a New Hampshire victory in the general election against Democrat Hillary Clinton.

The accusation that people from more liberal Massachusetts crossed state lines in buses and voted in 2016 was made by Republican Chris Sununu, Sununu later told the New Hampshire news network NH1 that he was “not aware of any widespread voter fraud” in the state.


More broadly, Trump has repeatedly asserted but produced no evidence of widespread voting fraud in 2016 by people in the country illegally or by any group of people.

The commission he appointed on voting fraud was shut down. Studies have found only isolated cases of voter fraud in recent U.S. elections and no evidence that election results were affected. Loyola Law School professor Justin Levitt found 31 cases of impersonation fraud, for example, in about 1 billion votes cast in elections from 2000 to 2014.

PHILIPPINES

TRUMP, responding to word that the Philippines will end a security pact allowing U.S. forces to train in the country: “We helped them defeat ISIS. ... But if you look back, if you go back three years ago, when ISIS was overrunning the Philippines, we came in and, literally, single-handedly were able to save them from vicious attacks on their islands.” — Wednesday at the White House.

THE FACTS: He’s wrong in saying Islamic State fighters were overrunning the Philippines and that the U.S. “single-handedly” saved the country from them.

In May 2017, in the operation touched on by Trump, more than 600 IS-aligned local militants, backed by a smattering of foreign jihadists, laid siege to Marawi, a small Islamic city in the largely Roman Catholic country. They held control of several neighborhoods and multiple buildings. Philippine troops launched a massive offensive and routed them after five months.

U.S. and Australian aircraft helped with surveillance. U.S. troops were not engaged in combat. The Philippine Constitution prohibits that.

IMPEACHMENT. {Nit picking perhaps but it's still wrong & misleading.}

TRUMP, on impeachment: “It wasn’t even close. I want to thank our Republican senators and our Republican House members; they were tremendous. In the House, we won 196 to nothing, and then we got three Democrats.”

THE FACTS: If you only count your own score, you win every vote and every game.

The House impeached Trump on a 230-197 vote on the first article, outlining abuse of power charges, and a 229-198 vote on the second article covering obstruction of Congress. That’s because most of the majority Democrats backed impeachment.

Trump went on to say: “In the Senate, other than Romney, we had — we got 52 to nothing.”

The Senate acquitted Trump by votes of 52-48 on abuse of power and 53-47 on obstructing Congress.

FACEBOOK:

Donald J. Trump

Great honor, I think? Mark Zuckerberg recently stated that “Donald J. Trump is Number 1 on Facebook. Number 2 is Prime Minister Modi of India.” Actually, I am going to India in two weeks. Looking forward to it!

Errr. NO - Renaldo has 125 million. PM Modi has 44 million. OBAMA has 53.3 million. Trump has a measly 27.5 million. Loser.

And let's not forget that Dipshit Donny knows absolutely EVERYTHING!!! No person in the modern history of the world knows more than he (or so he'd like us to believe). He's already confidently announced that the solution to the coronavirus lies in just waiting for "warmer weather" - when the virus will simply "die off". Does no-one actually tell the gobshite that he's making a total fool of himself with such announcements? Would telling him that really do any good?

This is the intelligence cell. At least bring some analysis to the matter and cut it out with the stupid names.

Stupid names? How about "crooked Hillary, "nervous Nancy", "crazy Bernie", "shifty Schiff", "sleepy Joe" and all the other "stupid names" he's thought up for those he doesn't like. Or are they not "stupid" enough for you? Why would you give "Dipshit Donny" a pass in that respect, eh?

And you want analysis? Your man there is a proven psychopath. Just see how viciously and vindictively he's treated those who testified against him. And, believe me, that's not over yet by far. He's just getting started. Is that the sort of self-serving megalomaniac who should be in charge of nuclear weapons? Analysis my arse!

Incredible revelations in a newly-published book looking for sales ; who'd have thought (when it's so obvious to many of us)!

'Two Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists have released an explosive book after speaking to over 200 sources in Donald Trump’s inner circle, revealing the alleged disgust Trump’s own administration holds for him. The book, A Very Stable Genius: Donald J Trump’s Testing of America, concluded that Trump was “completely crazy” with the “amazing ability to disconnect from facts and remember experiences the way it suited him at the moment”, among other things.

'The book is named after a famous tweet of Trump’s, where he said: “I went from VERY successful businessman to top TV star to President of the United States (on my first try). “I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius … and a very stable genius at that!”

'The book’s authors Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig, both from The Washington Post, believed they were able to speak to so many sources because of one simple reason: “The reason they shared these stories is they feel that the president rejects facts and information,”

'In an interview with Business Insider, the journalists spoke of some of the most shocking things they discovered in their research. Trump allegedly ruined a deal with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi because he said: “It’s not like you’ve got China on your border.”


 
OK, which one of you Truppits did this?

Not many people know he has that award. ;)
It was presented to him by Putin in a closed door meeting, the one where he illegally ripped up the transcript afterwards.
 
And there's the problem, and their irrelevance.

'Over 1,100 former US Department of Justice officials have signed an open letter calling for Attorney General Bill Barr to resign after senior department officials intervened to reduce a sentencing recommendation for Donald Trump’s friend Roger Stone. “Each of us strongly condemns President Trump’s and Attorney General Barr’s interference in the fair administration of justice,” the former Justice Department officials wrote in an open letter published on Sunday, calling Barr’s actions “a grave threat to the fair administration of justice.”
