4th Circuit Court of Appeals upholds block on trump's travel ban

trump calls out NATO leaders over Defense Spending

trump embarrassed us again...

He spoke in front of the NATO allies at the alliance’s new headquarters, and called them out for not meeting their financial commitments. For some reason, he thinks this a book club or something.


He said:
“Twenty-three of the 28 member nations are still not paying what they should be paying and what they are supposed to be paying for their defense. This is not fair to the people and taxpayers of the United States. 2% is the bare minimum for confronting today’s very real and very vicious threats. If NATO countries made their full and complete contributions, then NATO would be even stronger than it is today, especially from the threat of terrorism.”
Now here's the tea... every President since Truman has pledged support for Article 5--that the United States will defend Europe. What trump did today was a mess.

Sean Hannity Caves, Stop Pushing Seth Rich Conspiracy Theory

Sean is in deep shit.

For a while, he has been pushing this Seth Rich murder conspiracy theory. The story claims that Seth was DNC mole passing info to Wikileaks and later killed for it. The story had several holes in it, but that didn't stop Hannity. He kept the story going, until Fox News jumped in.

They released this statement
On May 16, a story was posted on the Fox News website on the investigation into the 2016 murder of DNC Staffer Seth Rich. The article was not initially subjected to the high degree of editorial scrutiny we require for all our reporting. Upon appropriate review, the article was found not to meet those standards and has since been removed.

We will continue to investigate this story and will provide updates as warranted.
Later, Seth Rich’s parents wrote an op-ed, begging Fox News to stop politicizing Rich’s murder. With more added pressure from fellow Fox News staffers and the public, Sean caved

Liar, Liar

Sources believe Michael Flynn will invoke Fifth Amendment



Lord, this is getting silly.

So, Mike Flynn knows he's a mess and plans on continuing this notion. According to AP, Mike will defy the Senate Intelligence Committee subpoena for documents on the trump-Russia probe and possibly invoke the 5th Amendment.

AP reports

That’s according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the private interactions between Flynn and the committee.

Flynn’s decision comes less than two weeks after the committee issued a subpoena for Flynn’s documents as part of the panel’s investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy ‘I think Putin pays’ trump

This story broke yesterday, but The Washington Post found the good stuff here.



From WP
A month before Donald Trump clinched the Republican nomination, one of his closest allies in Congress — House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy — made a politically explosive assertion in a private conversation on Capitol Hill with his fellow GOP leaders: that Trump could be the beneficiary of payments from Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump,” McCarthy (R-Calif.) said, according to a recording of the June 15, 2016, exchange, which was listened to and verified by The Washington Post. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is a Californian Republican known in Congress as a fervent defender of Putin and Russia.

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) immediately interjected, stopping the conversation from further exploring McCarthy’s assertion, and swore the Republicans present to secrecy.
Lord, this is so crazy!
