U.S. A Republican congressman told Fox News host Sean Hannity that special counsel Robert Mueller’s Tuesday memo recommending a lenient sentence for former national security adviser Michael Flynn for substantially assisting in his investigation was actually “good news” for President Donald Trump. "I think it’s good news for President Trump tonight that this is what it’s come down to," said North Carolina Representative Mark Meadows, who serves on the House Freedom Caucus. “Even though they said he substantially cooperated, I think he substantially cooperated to say that there was no collusion and we can look at it with that in mind." In his memo, Mueller said Flynn provided “substantial assistance” in his probe into Russian interference and possible collusion with the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election, and recommended that Flynn face no prison time. Hannity, a close friend and informal adviser to … [Read more...] about Republican Tells Fox News That Michael Flynn Memo Is ‘Good News for President Trump’

By The Washington Post | PUBLISHED: November 21, 2018 at 6:59 am | UPDATED: November 21, 2018 at 7:00 am By Cleve R. Wootson Jr. | The Washington Post “Fox & Friends” — and many, many other Fox News programs — dedicated significant portions of its 2016 presidential campaign coverage to a question that seemed at the center of our faith in our republic: Did Hillary Clinton’s rule-breaking use of private email to conduct government business render her unfit to serve in the topmost levels of the federal government? There was analysis about “operational intel” in the emails that could put U.S. citizens at risk. A question-and-answer segment focused on whether a hypothetical President Hillary Clinton could pardon herself. At one point, Judge Jeanine Pirro demonstrated what it would be like to smash two BlackBerrys with a hammer.

POLITICS 11/15/2018 05:57 pm ET Trump’s staffers are worried that no one believes them or the president any more. Seriously. By S.V. Date WASHINGTON ― On the bonfire of President Donald Trump’s credibility, Americans can now toss a fresh log: his often-repeated promise during the midterm election campaign of a new “10 percent tax cut for middle-income families.” “We are going to be putting in, and are studying very deeply right now, around the clock, a major tax cut for middle-income people,” Trump told reporters in Elko, Nevada, on Oct. 20. “It’s going to be put in next week,” Trump promised his rally audience in Houston two days later. “We’ve been working on it for a few months.” As it turns out, no tax cut was “put in” the following week. No one had been working on it at all, let alone “for a few months” or “around the clock.” In fact, congressional … [Read more...] about Trump’s Fabricated Tax Cut Now Another Log On His Credibility Bonfire
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. — A lawsuit says a Missouri sheriff used his knee to press on the neck of an inmate who later died, and when urged repeatedly to stop, responded: "No, I'm good." Tory Sanders of Nashville, Tennessee, died in May 2017, after being subdued by then-Sheriff Cory Hutcheson and others at the Mississippi County Jail. The Southeast Missourian reports that a federal lawsuit seeking at least $20 million was filed Monday in Cape Girardeau on behalf of Sanders' nine children and other relatives. The county's presiding commissioner, Carlin Bennett, declined to comment. Hutcheson was not criminally charged in Sanders' death, but was dismissed soon after. He was at the jail the night Sanders died even though his law enforcement license had been suspended over criminal allegations in unrelated cases . … [Read more...] about Lawsuit seeks $20 million over death of Missouri jail inmate
