1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump is taking the GOP Senate down with him

Senator Thom Tillis is one of the Republicans who rarely makes headlines, and probably prefers it that way to keep getting re-elected. Few on the national stage had heard of him until last month when he came out against Donald Trump’s national emergency nonsense, only to vote for it anyway after being threatened with a primary challenger. It’s probably the same threat that’s caused him to open his mouth yet again – only to make him look even more foolish.



In an interview with NC Policy Watch this week, Tillis was asked if he was concerned at all about Donald Trump’s increasingly weird behavior, particularly when it came to the Mueller report. “What I liked the most is about the smart people that he had advising him. Because that’s why at the end of the day they drew the conclusion there was no obstruction,” said Tillis.



Of course, Tillis knows there was no conclusion of the kind, but he doesn’t care as long as his own base buys that. The Republicans have already been asked to run independently of Trump in 2020, when Tillis is up for re-election in a relatively purple state. He’s afraid to effectively dismiss the report – but he’s also afraid of stoking Donald Trump’s anger. Rather than admit there’s evidence that Trump is guilty, he’s decided to rationalize it by saying “Good thing for Trump’s people! They kept him from breaking the law!”


In other words, Tillis has completely given up on trying to defend Trump’s moral character, because there isn’t any. The bar for president is apparently someone with a staff who will simply disobey his illegal and morally questionable orders. We’ll see how well it resonates with voters, especially since Tillis may be facing a whole other environment by next November, and whether he’ll have to distance himself from these remarks by then – something he seems prepared to do – but the bottom line here is they can’t vouch for Trump’s character anymore and it’s no longer a secret.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: Details revealed of Adam Schiff’s plan to completely dismantle Donald Trump

Even as Chairman Jerry Nadler and the House Judiciary Committee takes the lead on de facto impeachment hearings against Donald Trump involving cooperating witnesses like Robert Mueller and Don McGahn, Chairman Adam Schiff and the House Intelligence Committee are taking the lead on exposing the Trump-Russia scandal. New details just surfaced about Schiff’s plan, and they reveal that he plans to completely dismantle Trump.



Earlier this week the Daily Beast reported that Adam Schiff and the House Intel Committee has hired a former FBI financial crimes chief to investigate Trump. Then last night Rachel Maddow reported that Schiff has also hired three former U.S. Attorneys and an investigator who speaks Russian. Schiff is a former prosecutor himself, so it’s not surprising that he would want to assemble this kind of prosecutorial firepower. But these specific details help point to where this is headed.



Various House committees are probing various aspects of Donald Trump’s finances, but the House Intel Committee is specifically focused on Trump’s financial ties to foreign nations and foreign entities. By hiring such an A-list financial crimes investigator, Schiff is revealing that he intends to expose the money trail between Donald Trump and other nations, even though Robert Mueller apparently didn’t go there. The addition of the Russian-speaking investigator tips off that Schiff is going deep into the Trump-Russia connection.


Meanwhile, the addition of three former U.S. Attorneys suggests that Adam Schiff is planning to build a de facto federal criminal case against Donald Trump, which could then be served up to the Department of Justice once Trump is gone so he can be prosecuted for what Schiff finds. One big thing to keep in mind: although these hires are being reported now, they may have already been on the job for awhile. Schiff has had control of the committee for the past four months. The only reason to reveal these hires now is that some aspect of their work is about to become public-facing.

The measure would require felons to pay court-ordered financial obligations before they can cast a ballot. Critics said they would label Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) the “Jim Crow” governor if he signs the bill.
