Putin Says He Doesn’t Think Trump Is `Compromised’ as President

Of course you don’t.

Russian President Vladimir Putin reaffirmed his support for U.S. counterpart Donald Trump, denying that he’s been politically compromised by accusations that Russia helped him win the 2016 election.

“I don’t think President Trump is compromised,” Putin told an energy conference in Moscow on Wednesday. “The people elected him, the people voted for him — somebody doesn’t like that, somebody doesn’t want to respect the opinion of American voters.”

Attorney Michael Avenatti tweeted Tuesday evening that he had a second witness who could testify to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s misconduct in high school, and who could corroborate some of the claims made by his client, Julie Swetnick, who alleged last week that Kavanaugh was present while she was drugged and gang-raped at a party while in high school.

NYT columnist: ‘More outright white nationalists than black people’ in Trump administration

It’s no longer debatable. The President of the United States is a white supremacist:

Responding to reports that yet another appointee in Donald Trump’s administration is a white nationalist, New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg made an only-slightly-hyperbolic reference to the White House’s diversity problem.

In mid-August, former Trump aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman revealed that when she left the White House, she was the only black person “at the table” — and that no African Americans have been hired in her stead.

FBI, Citibank probing Sergei Kislyak allegedly suspicious 2016 payment

Kislyak and Trump picture

Examiners at Citibank and investigators from the FBI are reportedly probing a suspiciously large December 2016 transaction from the Russian embassy to ambassador Sergei Kislyak, Buzzfeed News reported on Wednesday.

Investigators are apparently examining a check from the Russian embassy marked “payroll” for $120,000, believed to be Kislyak’s lump-sum 2016 salary, deposited in November 2016 shortly after President Donald Trump won the presidential election, according to Buzzfeed.

The $120,000 payment is more than two times the amount of Kislyak’s annual salary in the previous two years, according to financial documents reviewed by Buzzfeed. The branch manager at the Citi location Kislyak used reportedly said the payment was a salary, a claim Citibank financial examiners were unable to independently verify.
