It’s getting real for POTUS over at MSNBC.
In a segment labeled, “Fruit of the Investigations,” morning host Ali Velshi opened the show by declaring all the ways in which an ill-informed President Trump would falter should democrats win the House.
“The president is worried right now, and here’s why,” Velshi began before diving into his exploratory piece.
“So far there’s been one outright conviction of his former campaign chairman for bank and tax fraud, with another trial looming,” Velshi said, in reference to Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort.
Then Velshi shared a laundry list of sorts.
“In New York there are currently two immunity deals in place,” Velshi continued. “One for National Enquirer owner David Pecker, the keeper of the president’s secrets, and the other his money man back at the Trump Organization, Allen Weisselberg.”
It’s widely speculated that both Weisselberg and Pecker may provide key testimony in reference to the Michael Cohen investigation. Cohen, Trump’s former personal lawyer, has already flipped on the troubled Trump, citing concern over the entire GOP.
If indictments are any indication, there’s no fixing this flippant firestorm.
Velshi continued in his segment, “the most staggering numbers, 32 people and entities have been indicted on more than 100 charges, including conspiracy against the United States.”
There are currently six guilty pleas secured by the Southern District of New York into Trump’s 2016 campaign. One of them includes the guilty plea issued by Cohen, which directly implicated Trump.
The way this all seems to be going down, the midterm elections will hold the cards for the future of the self-admitted con artist-turned-president and his entire party.

Robert Mueller Just Got a New Boss – Who Has Already Said the Russia Probe ‘Is Going Too Far’
President Donald Trump has just fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Rather than naming Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to the position of Attorney General or Acting Attorney General, Trump has picked a conservative attorney identified by the Federalist Society – the same group that picks Trump’s judicial nominees – who thinks Special Counsel Robert Mueller has gone too far.
Since the Special Counsel must report to the Attorney General, unless the AG has recused himself from the investigation, Rod Rosenstein has just been stripped of supervision of Robert Mueller and the Russia probe.
Trump has just named Matthew Whitaker as his Acting Attorney General.
Which means Robert Mueller just got a new boss.
In August of 2017, Whitaker wrote a CNN op-ed titled, “Mueller’s investigation of Trump is going too far.”
My opinion piece today “Mueller’s Investigation of Trump is going too far” https://t.co/Q0IXwg06BW
— Matt Whitaker 🇺🇸 (@MattWhitaker46) August 6, 2017
“Mueller’s investigators could be looking into financial records relating to the Trump Organization that are unrelated to the 2016 election,” Whitaker wrote.
He adds, “investigating Donald Trump’s finances or his family’s finances falls completely outside of the realm of his 2016 campaign and allegations that the campaign coordinated with the Russian government or anyone else. That goes beyond the scope of the appointment of the special counsel.”
Whether or not that’s true, it doesn’t matter.
District Attorneys, prosecutors of all stripes and at all levels go where the evidence takes them, and a crime is a crime.
The Special Counsel who investigated Bill and Hillary Clinton did so under the guise of “Whitewater,” a supposed stock scam, which by the way was not. But that investigation ultimately led to Clinton’s impeachment.
To be clear, Trump is actively working to neuter the Mueller investigation. And Republicans are looking the other way.
Khashoggi’s Body Parts Found: Report
The 15-man hit team that is believed to have entered the Saudi consulate the same day Khashoggi did apparently didn’t bother to go far to dispose of Khashoggi’s body parts.
“Khashoggi’s remains were discovered in the garden of the Saudi consul general’s home,” a source told Sky News.
“Sources have told Sky News the writer had been ‘cut up’ and his face ‘disfigured.'”
News reports have said Khashoggi was brutally tortured, including having his fingers cut off and his body dismembered for seven minutes while he was still alive.
Turkey’s President Erdogan on Tuesday called Khashoggi’s murder “savage” and premeditated.
Bombshell CNN Video Shows Saudis Used a Body Double in Lame Attempt to Cover Up Jamal Khashoggi’s Murder
CNN on Monday released a bombshell new video showing how the Saudi government tried to use a body double to cover up for the murder journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Video footage collected by Turkish authorities shows that a man dressed in Khashoggi’s clothing exited the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and then drove to Sultan Ahmed Mosque, which is a major tourist attraction in the city and a place where it would be easy to get lost in a crowd, CNN reported.
However, security camera footage shot around the mosque captured the body double entering into a bathroom and then exiting wearing different clothes.
Subsequent security camera footage later in the day captured the body double at his hotel with his accomplice, where they appeared “visibly relaxed,” according to CNN’s Clarissa Ward.
