President Trump Stars at NRA Meeting!

President Trump Addresses National Rifle Association Meeting


For the fourth year in a row, President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence deliver remarks at the “National Rifle Association 147th Annual Meeting and Exhibit” in Dallas on Friday. Last year, he became the first sitting president to appear since Reagan, declaring that the “assault” on the Second Amendment had ended.

Asked why Trump was attending, given the current political tensions around gun violence, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said this week that safety was a “big priority.” But, she added, “We also support the Second Amendment, and strongly support it, and don’t see there to be a problem with speaking at the National Rifle Association’s meeting.”



Democrat White House Press Reporters Turn Pervert at Thursday’s Briefing


by John Hinderaker   at PowerLine:

“Today Sarah Sanders conducted a press briefing. What transpired illustrates Michael Ramirez’s point that there is no difference between the crazed comic Michelle Wolf and the crazed reporters who cover the White House for their various liberal outlets.

Ms. Sanders opened, as usual, by talking about some of the things going on in the White House and around the country:

Today in the Rose Garden, President Trump continued the tradition of celebrating the National Day of Prayer. The President also signed an executive order to ensure that all faith-based communities have strong advocates throughout his administration. …

In that same light, President Trump extends his thoughts and prayers to the nine victims and their families of yesterday’s military plane crash in Savannah, Georgia. …

As you all know, President Trump’s nominee to lead the CIA, Gina Haspel, is scheduled to appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee next week.

In her 33 years at the agency, Acting Director Haspel has held senior positions around the globe, overseeing covert operations and counterterrorism efforts to protect the homeland.

She’s one of the most qualified, most capable individuals ever nominated to lead the CIA. …

With planning and preparations underway for the summit with North Korea, and with Secretary Pompeo now engaged from the State Department, Republicans and Democrats should come together and confirm Gina Haspel as the Director of the CIA.

Today, we also mark World Press Freedom Day. This comes after a recent suicide bombing in Afghanistan claiming the lives of at least 10 journalists.

Do you think the reporters who cover the White House were interested in any of those topics? Of course not! Stormy Daniels is, apparently, the great issue facing the Republic. Here are the questions the reporters asked Ms. Sanders, with only a handful of relevant ones omitted:

Q Can you explain why the President, when he spoke — when he answered questions from reporters a few weeks ago about the $130,000 payment from Michael Cohen to Stormy Daniels, why the President was not truthful with the American people and with the people in this room?

Q If I could take a broader view on this, because I know you can’t talk about the details. But can I ask you, when the President so often says things that turn out not to be true, when the President and the White House show what appears to be a blatant disregard for the truth, how are the American people to trust or believe what is said here and what is said by the President?

Q But the President — I mean, when the story first happened came out that Ty Cobb would be leaving and Emmet Flood would be coming in, the President said, “fake news,” said it was not true. When he talked about the prisoners in North Korea, he said the previous administration had failed to get them out. At least two of them were taken prisoner while Donald Trump was President. And obviously, the totally conflicting statements on the Stormy Daniels claim. I mean, these are statements that are just not true.

Q He started paying back Michael Cohen back in February of last year. I mean, the reimbursement was happening long before the President was asked about this.

Q But I’m saying, I mean, how could he not have known? He was paying him back. He was paying him back —

Q Just to follow up on that — the President did talk about monthly retainers in his tweet, and then Rudy Giuliani said that the President only knew about this 10 days to 2 weeks ago. How can you only be aware of something 10 days to 2 weeks ago, but at the same time be in the process of paying monthly retainers that apparently covered this reimbursement to Michael Cohen?

Q If I could just follow up on — you said, on March 7th, “There was no knowledge of any payments from the President, and he’s denied all of these allegations.” Were you lying to us at the time, or were you in the dark?

Q That means you were in the dark. You didn’t know. You didn’t know at the time.

Q Thanks a lot, Sarah. Were you caught off guard by Major Giuliani’s comments on Fox News last night?

Q So is the administration — is the President, is he pleased with the job that Mayor Giuliani is doing right now? It seems as if he has opened the President up to some sort of criminal liability as it relates to federal election campaign violations.

Q Thank you, Sarah. When was the last time that the President talked to Michael Cohen? And is Michael Cohen still his attorney? And also, is the White House concerned or is the President concerned that any conversations he would have had with Michael Cohen would have been picked up by the wiretap that we learned about today?

Q And just to clarify, when did you specifically know that the President repaid Mr. Cohen for the $130,000? You personally.

Q Sarah, you said earlier that, when you’ve given answers around this general topic, you gave us the best information you had at the time. Now it appears that your position is you’re not going to comment because it’s ongoing litigation. Have you been advised not to wade into this to protect yourself from any potential legal exposure by giving either false information or information that proves later not to be able to be withstood in court?

Q But the point of Jonathan’s question earlier — when you say, before, that you gave the best information you had at the time, and —

MS. SANDERS: And I continue to do that today.

Q — but it turns out not to be correct, or accurate, are you then trying to limit the liability that you may encounter by not dealing with any of those questions now, and pushing them all off because you say it’s ongoing litigation?

Q Let me ask you something that the Mayor said last night, not related to the questions you’ve gotten so far. He said, he — being the President — “fired Comey because Comey would not, among other things, say that he wasn’t a target of the investigation.” Is that the White House position now, explaining why James Comey was fired?

Q He said it’s a completely tainted investigation. Do you agree with that?

Q Can you clear up this timeline a bit, back to Jim’s question, about when exactly did the President learn that the payments were going to Michael Cohen to cover the Stormy Daniels —

Q And did the President know that Mr. Giuliani would specifically be talking about these payments on Hannity last night? Was he aware of the time and the message —

Q Was the President concerned when he learned the reporting that Michael Cohen’s phones were wiretapped several days before the raid?

Q And just going back to the payments question, how many payments did the President make to Michael Cohen after the election?

Q Can I just ask you about Rudy Giuliani’s comments? Rudy Giuliani said, this morning, “Imagine if that came out on October 15, 2016, in the middle of the last debate with Hillary Clinton” — a reference to the payment. So does the White House now acknowledge that that payment was made with politics in mind?

Q Was Giuliani correct in saying that he was fired in part because he wouldn’t tell the President that he wasn’t part of the investigation?

Q Sarah, did the President file a fraudulent personal financial disclosure last year when he filed a report that did not include a loan from Michael Cohen or any company affiliated with him? I mean, if there was no loan, then what would he have been reimbursing?

Q So a couple of quick questions. Does the President believe he’s above the law?

Q Thank you. And then does he prefer to sit down with Kim Jong-un versus Bob Mueller?

Q So, Sarah, at this point, can you tell us definitively if the President plans to answer any questions from Bob Mueller? And if not, what is now in place here at the White House to go through that process of a subpoena, a possible indictment, a possible grand jury?

The White House press corps is utterly deranged by its hatred for President Trump and its determination to help its party crush his administration. A lot of people, sadly, aren’t very good at their jobs. But I doubt that you could find, anywhere in our vast country, a group of people who are as terrible at their jobs as the members of the White House press corps.”



Mr. President: Wipe Out the Evil, Corrupt Mueller and Rosenstein Swamp

Message For Mueller? Obstruction Allegations “Setup & Trap,” Trump Tweets

by Ed Morrissey at HotAir:

Maybe Donald Trump has deduced the dangers inherent in a wide-ranging interview with federal prosecutors in search of a crime. In an early-morning tweet, the president called allegations of collusion with Russia during the 2016 campaign a “hoax,” but got more specific about allegations of obstruction of justice, which he called a “setup & trap.”

Donald J. Trump


There was no Collusion (it is a Hoax) and there is no Obstruction of Justice (that is a setup & trap). What there is is Negotiations going on with North Korea over Nuclear War, Negotiations going on with China over Trade Deficits, Negotiations on NAFTA, and much more. Witch Hunt!

A voluntary interrogation with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team might not be a “setup,” as anyone with a lick of sense could see the “trap” part of it coming. That may finally include the White House, whose resistance to the idea prompted Mueller in March to threaten to issue a subpoena and put Trump in front of a grand jury:

In a tense meeting in early March with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, President Trump’s lawyers insisted he had no obligation to talk with federal investigators probing Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.

But Mueller responded that he had another option if Trump declined: He could issue a subpoena for the president to appear before a grand jury, according to four people familiar with the encounter.

Mueller’s warning — the first time he is known to have mentioned a possible subpoena to Trump’s legal team — spurred a sharp retort from John Dowd, then the president’s lead lawyer.

“This isn’t some game,” Dowd said, according to two people with knowledge of his comments. “You are screwing with the work of the president of the United States.”

Or maybe they haven’t learned it. Not long after this, John Dowd left Trump’s legal team, and one of the rumored reasons was Dowd’s opposition to any interview at all with Mueller’s team. Supposedly the subsequent raid on Michael Cohen’s office soured Trump on talking with Mueller, but then Trump hired Rudy Giuliani, whose purpose seems to be to negotiate with Mueller on the terms of the interview.

Trump’s tweet, to the extent it’s strategic at all, seems to be setting up a political cover for reversing his earlier pledge to cooperate with the special counsel. The Washington Post reports that the release of dozens of potential Mueller questions actually came from an internal Trump legal team analysis, and was designed to paint Mueller as a Ken Starr-ish loose cannon:

Trump fumed when he saw the breadth of the questions that emerged out of the talks with Mueller’s team, according to two White House officials.

The president and several advisers now plan to point to the list as evidence that Mueller has strayed beyond his mandate and is overreaching, they said. …

“Mueller is in Kenny Starr territory now,” said another Trump adviser, referring to how the controversial independent counsel investigation of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s real estate deals in Arkansas ended up examining the president’s lies about his sexual relationship with a White House intern.

Perhaps the tweet was just whimsical, though. Trump’s been known to vent his mercurial temperament on Twitter from time to time, or so I hear. The fact that Trump’s legal team has still considered putting their client in a room with federal prosecutors without being a target of their investigation is amazing enough that it’s tough to guess what else it would take to convince them — and Trump — not to do it. He doesn’t have to paint Mueller as Ken Starr to decide against it, but if they’ve gotten to the point of gaming that out, it at least suggests that the subpoena threat might have finally made the danger clear, even to Trump. Wonderful thing, subpoenas.”
