‘He’s Projecting His Own Unruliness’: Pelosi Blasts Trump’s Cries of ‘Presidential Harassment’ (Video)



Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is pushing back against President Donald Trump‘s repeated attacks on the Democrats’ investigations into his financial dealings.

Speaker Pelosi strongly disputed President Trump’s claim that investigating him is “presidential harassment,” when asked by a reporter if she is concerned Democrats are going too far.

“I am not commenting on what the President has to say about our work,” Pelosi said at a Thursday morning press conference. “I always think whatever the president says about us, he is projecting his own unruliness. He’s a projector and that’s what it is about.”

The Speaker also offered some advice:

“When the president says that the Mueller investigation is going on too long, you just say back to him: ‘Not as long as your tax audit, Mr. President.'”

Federal Judge: Trump Broke the Law When He Reallocated Federal Funds to Build His Border Wall



President Donald Trump broke the law when he reallocated federal funds via an emergency order and used them to build his border wall.

MSNBC’s Pete Williams reports the judge’s ruling, handed down minutes ago, means that what Trump did is “illegal.”

The next step is for the plaintiffs who filed the lawsuit to decide what “remedy,” what course of action, should happen next.

CNN’s Shimon Prokupecz says Judge David Briones “appears poised to block the use of those funds.”

‘About as High a Crime and Misdemeanor as One Can Imagine’ Former DOJ Official Muses After Latest Whistleblower Bombshell



A former top Obama Dept. of Justice official just weighed in on The Washington Post’s latest bombshell involving an intelligence official’s whistleblower complaint against President Donald Trump, repeated actions involving a “promise” to a foreign leader, and the new development that it involves Ukraine.

The Trump White House, through the Acting Director of National Intelligence, is refusing to hand over to Congress the whistleblower complaint, despite very clear law saying he “shall” do so.

Former DOJ chief spokesperson Matthew Miller, now an MSNBC justice and security analyst, responded to a tweet detailing the Post’s latest reporting from its national security correspondent.

Miller tweeted:

“If [Trump] was promising U.S. government action in exchange for a foreign government targeting a political [opponent], that is about as high a crime and misdemeanor as one can imagine.”

(Miller originally tweeted “appointment,” but subsequently tweeted “opponent.”)

‘Continuing Cover-Up’: Top House Democrat Catches Lewandowski Making Statement That Differs From Mueller Report



The American people deserve to know the truth.”

A top House Democrat appears to have caught former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski making a statement that differs with a fact in the Mueller report. Lewandowski has spent several hours stonewalling, obfuscating, and doing his best to disrupt the Judiciary Committee on Tuesday in what is the first official House impeachment inquiry hearing.

“You stated earlier today that President Trump asked you to take dictation ‘many times.’ Is that correct?” Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) asked Lewandowski.

“It is,” the former campaign manager responded.

“But on page 91 volume 2 of the Mueller report it states, ‘The president then asked Lewandowski to deliver a message to [Attorney General] Sessions and said, ‘write this down.’ This was the first time the president had asked Lewandowski to take dictation.’ The first time,” Jeffries said, emphasizing the obvious discrepancy in his testimony Tuesday.

“Those are not my words, Congressman, those are the investigator’s words,” Lewandowski replied.

“Right,” Jeffries responded. “Did you lie to Mueller or are you lying to us?”

“I didn’t lie,” Lewandowski insisted.

“OK. You’re not really here to tell the truth,” Jeffries, who also chairs the House Democratic Caucus, accused. “You are here to participate in a continuing cover-up.”

“Russia interfered with this election in sweeping and systematic fashion, the Trump campaign welcomed that assistance at the highest level,” Jeffries said, at which point Lewandowski turned his head away. “There were subsequent acts of obstruction of justice with respect to the investigation. The American people deserve to know the truth.”

One Vox reporter called it a “demonstrable lie,” and’s Judd Legum says Lewandowski “either just lied to Congress or lied to Mueller.”
