After weeks of uncertainty, Papadopoulos decides to accept plea deal with Mueller

George Papadopoulos, a former foreign policy adviser to President Donald Trump’s campaign, has decided to stick with his plea agreement with special counsel Robert Mueller, his wife told ABC News on Wednesday.

The decision puts to rest weeks of public hand-wringing by his wife, Simona Mangiante Papadopoulos, who has been acting as an informal spokeswoman for her husband. She said in an interview with ABC News earlier this month that her husband was strongly considering backing away from the agreement he struck with Mueller that led him to plead guilty to lying to the FBI.

Trump’s Downfall: A Neuroscientist Explains What Happens When a Narcissist Starts to Lose Power

It would be worse than Nixon in his final days. This man will do anything to save his ’empire.’

While the exaggerator-in-chief is well known for his habitual lying, the most common psychological diagnosis he’s been given by experts in the field is narcissistic personality disorder. While any diagnosis should require a full mental examination before accepted as clinical truth, the mountains of behavioral evidence for Trump’s narcissism arguably provides more justification for the label than any standard clinical test. At this point, the claim can hardly be debated, and even staunch supporters would admit that Trump thinks he’s the greatest thing since sliced bread. It takes a special kind of narcissist to shamelessly compare their book to The Bible in front an audience full of conservatives. His narcissism knows few limits, and it’s hard to imagine even the man himself denying such an obvious fact.

Republicans Have List of Trump Scandals They’re Covering Up

It’s all going to come out after January when the Democrats take control of the House:

Axios has obtained a list of Trump administration scandals. The list hints at the overflowing sewer of Trumpian corruption and incompetence, and the refusal of congressional Republicans to investigate any of it. Oddly enough, this list is being circulated by Republicans in Congress. The list, composed of Democratic requests for hearings that Republicans have blocked, is meant to warn of what Congress would look into if Democrats win the midterms. Axios reports that Republican “stomachs are churning” at the mere thought that any of the items on the list could receive a public hearing.

Kavanaugh argued the president can be impeached for lies, cover-ups and refusing to testify


I want to hear his explanation for flip-flopping. And how isn’t it convenient now to hold a different view. One that benefits Trump:

The young attorney decided the president deserved to be forced from office for “his pattern of revolting behavior” and the “sheer number of his wrongful acts.”

“The president has disgraced his office. … He has lied to his aides. He has lied to the American people,” Brett Kavanaugh wrote in a 1998 memo to his colleagues. “I’m strongly opposed to giving (him) any ‘break’ … unless he either resigns or … issues a public apology.”

Kavanaugh, a fast-rising Republican legal star, then 33, went back to work on a 132-page memo to his boss, Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr, that outlined the grounds for impeaching President Bill Clinton.

Judiciary Dems: Kremlin may have used the NRA to help Trump campaign

That’s called treason. Aiding and abetting treason is treason. Therefore, we should expect this organization to be disbanded and leadership thrown in jail:

Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee say they have obtained documents that suggest Russia used the National Rifle Association (NRA) to help President Trump‘s 2016 campaign.

The Democrats on Wednesday released a document outlining preliminary findings from their investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. It states that the Kremlin may have “used the NRA to secretly fund Mr. Trump’s campaign.”

New FBI Data Shows Active Shooters Caused Nearly 750 Casualties in 2017

Mass gun violence continues to worsen. The facts are clear. At it’s because the NRA has overwhelming control of the U.S. Congress. America is a war zone. And you could be next. Is that good with you?

More Americans were killed or wounded by active shooters in 2017 than in any year since the Federal Bureau of Investigation began keeping track.

All told, nearly 750 people were shot in 30 incidents, according to a newly released FBI report. The shooters were of different ages, from different places, and motivated by different grievances. But all were men, and all acted alone.

Casualties jumped dramatically from 2016 to 2017, though the entirety of that increase can be attributed to the Las Vegas strip massacre, which alone had more than 500 victims. Even subtracting the toll of that one event, 2017 was among the deadliest years on record.

Between 2010 and 2016, an average of 127 Americans were shot in active shootings each year, setting the United States apart from the rest of the world.
