Suspicious Package

In other news, Mother Jones has obtained text messages that show Trump's longtime henchman Roger Stone tried to secure a presidential pardon for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. This could be obstruction of justice.

Meanwhile, the Washington Post reports that CIA Director Gina Haspel has listened to the audio recording of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi's death. The audio was described to the Post as "compelling" which tells me it's exactly what Turkish authorities said it was.

Finally, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reportedly asked the Department of Defense (DoD) to send military police and engineers to our southern border with Mexico for unspecified purposes.

I expect they will sit on their asses and do nothing just like the National Guardsmen sent to the border did. You may recall that some of them were asked to clear brush like glorified groundskeepers.

    I expect they will sit on their asses and do nothing just like the National Guardsmen sent to the border did.

    In large part because they weren’t needed to patrol anything. When they’re walking up to Border Patrol and applying for asylum, you don’t really need more people to search through the bushes for them.

    Always helpful during times of conflict and national crisis to have an unhinged ‘dick’ in the WH twitting his demented brains out. “Somber. So somber.”
    he appears to be playing the victim again and attacking everyone so I suspect he has more information than the rest of us as to the guy currently in custody and being investigated for the mail bombs and I suspect that it is not a “hoax”.

    Please tell me that attempting to arrange a pardon for someone as a means of covering your own ass is a fucking crime!!!

    It’s not simply that the lies are so relentless, it’s that they’re so gobsmackingly obvious that makes it so galling. But to lie in such a way regarding the cold blooded murder of a news reporter by a foreign government is a new low even for Trump.

    When normal people look upon the so called “caravan” approaching the southern border they see our fellow human beings in desperate circumstances. Trump voters see Helm’s Deep. Trump voters are not normal.

      “Not normal” may be the most polite way to describe the devastated landscape of the mind, heart and soul of the average Trump voter. You have been entirely too kind.

      • For some reason “deplorable” keeps coming to mind….
