Trump is 'done' and 'I'm not sure he's going to escape jail': presidential historian



A history professor who has predicted every presidential election correctly since 1984 said that he believes former President Donald Trump is "done" in politics and may not escape jail time after he was sued in New York for alleged real estate fraud.

American University history professor Allan Lichtman told The Irish Times that Trump cannot win another election because of his legal burdens.

“He's done,” Lichtman said. “He’s got too many burdens, too much baggage to be able to run again even presuming he escapes jail, he escapes bankruptcy. I’m not sure he’s going to escape jail.”

Harvard University law professor Laurence Tribe said that the lawsuit has sent the Trump Organization into a meltdown because it seeks to bar many members of his family from running a business in New York.

Tribe said the lawsuit "involves things of particular significance to Trump and his family and his organization, namely their ability to defraud the public, to defraud banks, to defraud insurance companies, and to continue to subsist through corruption."

"Without all of that corruption, the entire Trump empire is involved in something like meltdown," he added. “Trump is probably more concerned with things of this kind than he is with having to wear an orange jumpsuit and maybe answer a criminal indictment … As a practical matter, this is probably going to cause more sleepless nights for Mr. Trump than almost anything else.”

'When they go to trial, I see them waving a white flag': Trump biographer and legal expert warns heirs of legal danger



Biographer of Donald Trump, David Cay Johnston, explained Thursday that "The Donald" isn't the only one in a tough position as he heads into court over the fraud alleged by New York Attorney General Letitia James.

Speaking to MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace, Johnston, along with former assistant Attorney General Harry Litman explained that the so-called children of Donald Trumps aren't minors, they're the executive vice presidents of his company. They had specific projects under the Trump Org. and were said to have taken over the business while Trump was in the White House.

"So, this is one of the things that James has really added to the public record," Litman explained. "People like David and Michael Cohen have given the general kind of parameters of the way they ran their business. But James has, you know, Eric and Ivanka -- by the way, took the 5th 500 times. So, all those problems for him. Ivanka, who, by the way, has political ambitions. So, that increases the pressure on her and Donald Jr. all have specific projects that Trump parcels out to them to take responsibility for. It's laid out in real detail in the 200-page complaint. So, it will be very hard to run away from."

Litman explained that there will be questions about whether the heirs can be peeled off and willing to save themselves up against their father or the other sibling. That could be difficult in this situation because the family is likely to split.

"They have not just the title but the responsibility and in the case of the fraud for the particular projects they were responsible for, the proof is very strong against them," he continued.

Johnston explained that one concern is likely whether the sons will be thrown under the bus by their father, "if it becomes convenient to do so." He noted that the elder Trump has never had a problem doing something like that if it means he can escape.

"And if push comes to shove, I expect he will do exactly that," said Johnston. "So, the two sons are not minor players here. They ran the business as Donald said. They worked with him for years. This is a complete change from when they were teenagers and his mom divorced their mother and they denounced him. But with very high-paying jobs, he drew them back. I don't think the two sons could go out in corporate America and get jobs with anywhere near the pay and methods that daddy has provided them with."

For Eric Trump, in particular, was allegedly involved in a lot of the deception that took place in the Trump Org.

this actually goes to trial," Johnston confessed. "If Trump agrees to close the Trump Organization, pay the discount of $250 million in penalties that are sought, then I think that's the more likely outcome in this because the factual case that Attorney General James laid out is apparent that key insiders walked away with the civil vision."

Litman noted that the next move would likely be a crazy legal motion just as he's had in previous cases.

"I think she can exact a very, very high price for them to settle," Litman also explained. "I think it has to be, and it may not be for a year or two. He always likes to delay. But when we're looking at trials, I see them waving a white flag."

Insider warns Trump's serious cognitive problems revealed in Hannity interview



Former President Donald Trump appears to be suffering from cognitive impairment, a former top Trump Organization insider explained on CNN on Thursday evening.

On Wednesday evening, Trump told Fox News personality Sean Hannity he could declassify documents telepathically. Trump's claim was met with scorn and derision, described as "obscenely reckless," and disputed by GOP senators.

For analysis, CNN's Sara Sidner interviewed Michael Cohen.

"There's something very different about Donald Trump today than the Donald Trump I remember at the Trump Organization," Cohen said.

"I think cognitively there's something seriously going on. He's so worried about what's going on, not just in this case but in all of the cases, that I really do believe that cognitively there's something going on there because nobody, even Donald -- he's not stupid enough to believe that you can mentally declassify documents," Cohen explained.

"He knew what documents were there. I mean, there's nuclear documents and we don't even know which ones that they are, we don't know what country they relate to," Cohen said. "And I believe he took those documents and all of them in order to use against the United States in the event that he is indicted or potentially incarcerated. "It's a 'get out of jail free' card. "

"There's nothing that he won't do to protect himself because he doesn't care about anyone else other than himself," Cohen said. "In fact, he'll let his kids go down before him. He'll let them fall on the sword the same way he let me fall on the sword. That's who he is."

Ex-Homeland Security aide calls Trump’s Hannity interview like ‘covering up for a drunk uncle’



Former President Donald Trump appeared Wednesday on Fox News to talk about his bad day in legal battles with the New York attorney general announcing a civil suit against his business and the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals overturning the protections put in place by his hand-picked judge.

Speaking about the day, former chief of staff at the Department of Homeland Security, Miles Taylor and MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace joked about Trump's claim he could declassify someone with the power of his own thoughts. Wallace said that it was like the movie "Minority Report" where the "thought police" can stop people from doing anything illegal before they do it.

Taylor said that the major difference was that the characters in the "Minority Report" had to be smart.

Addressing the Hannity interview, Taylor called it the "year of Karma for Donald Trump and the Republicans."

"He's just been held accountable this week on the mismanagement of his businesses before the presidency," Taylor said. "It looks like DOJ is trending towards holding him accountable for abuses of presidential power, namely with, you know, classified information. And then potentially abuses of power related to handing over and being reluctant to transition power with the Jan. 6th investigation. So, I think that all of those chickens are going to be coming home to roost"

He was astounded by Hannity in that Trump actually did the interview at a time when he should be exercising his right to remain silent. It has been only a few days since Trump's legal team said that they wouldn't provide any specific details because they anticipate Trump will be criminally indicted over the stolen documents.

"I was astounded that Hannity even did the interview. I hate to say, Nicolle, I also watched it, So that makes at least two of us here today," Taylor quipped. "And you know, it was almost like someone trying to cover up for a drunk uncle. At points, Hannity would interject in the interview and try to coach Trump along. And I think that to a question earlier in the panel, this might even be a preview of what his defense looks like. If he's actually seated up there in front of a jury, you can imagine sweating lawyers wanting to act like Sean Hannity and throw him a bone and coax him in a different direction, because he doesn't seem to be able to defend himself in public, let alone in a court of law."

Sidney Powell skips grand jury interview in Georgia investigation of Trump's coup attempt: report



Controversial far-right attorney Sidney Powell was scheduled to appear before a Fulton County special grand jury in Georgia on Thursday, but did not appear as scheduled.

"Sidney Powell, former attorney of former President Donald Trump, was scheduled to testify Thursday morning, but sources tell Channel 2 Action News that there may have been some confusion over the subpoena, and she apparently did not testify," WSB-TV reported. "It is unclear if there will be legal repercussions from her failure to appear."

In January, Powell was subpoenaed by the House Select Committee Investigating the Jan. 6 Attack on the U.S. Capitol.

"According to court records, the grand jury wants to ask Powell about her involvement in an incident that happened in South Georgia in January 2021," WSB reported. "Video shows several people being let into the County Elections Office to download elections data from voting machines and an elections server. State investigators call it 'criminal behavior' and say Sidney Powell paid for it all."

When Powell was subpoenaed by the select committee, it wrote it's investigation, "has revealed credible evidence that you publicly promoted claims that the 2020 election was stolen and participated in attempts to disrupt or delay the certification of the election results based on your allegations. Between mid-November 2020 and January 6, 2021 (and thereafter), you actively promoted claims of election fraud on behalf of former President Trump in litigation and public appearances."

"The Select Committee seeks the evidence you relied upon in making those claims.1 According to public reporting, in December 2020, you urged President Trump to direct the seizure of voting machines around the country to find evidence that foreign adversaries had hacked those machines and altered the results of the election," the subpoena read.

So, right wingers have a new bogus attack against President Biden. What else is new, right? 

You know it's total propaganda when far right wing "Twitter influencers", the right wing media, and MAGA Republicans all parrot the same phony scripted talking points. That's called the right wing echo chamber. 

Their new ridiculous and bogus attack is feigned outrage because President Biden tapped into the Strategic Oil Reserves to lower gas prices for American consumers. They are accusing the president of depleting the reserves. But that's what happens during a time of an emergency. That's what the reserves are for.

Plus, it's their own fault that President Biden had to tap into the reserves in order to lower gas prices in the first place.

Back in May, Democrats wrote a bill that President Biden proposed to go after the Big Oil companies who were purposely gouging American consumers with their artificially inflated gas prices for profit.         

The bill was brought to the House floor for a vote...and guess what happened?

Well, if you guessed that EVERY single House Republican voted against the "Big Oil and Gas Price Gouging Bill" you win the Big Prize.   

Here is the final House vote below.




So, as you can see EVERY single House Republican voted against lowering gas prices for Americans by voting against this important bill.

To make matters worse, Senate Republicans blocked this bill from becoming law. They wanted gas prices to remain high because they believed that high gas prices would help them politically in November.

All the phony outrage Republicans were displaying for gas prices was nothing but political theatre.

House Republicans and Senate Republicans had the opportunity to do something about high gas prices by voting for a bill that lowered gas prices.

But what did they do instead? EVERY single House Republican voted 'NO" on the bill and Senate Republicans blocked the bill from being voted on.

So, from their actions, Republicans didn't care to lower gas prices at all when they could have. Instead, they falsely attacked President Biden for political theatre. That's why these Republicans are nothing but frauds. They have no solutions or intentions to fix problems that arise. All they want to do is obstruct so things get worse which gives them a talking point to attack Democrats with.       

After Republicans refused to lower gas prices for Americans, President Biden had no choice but to tap into the Strategic Oil Reserves to bring down the costs of gasoline.

And guess what? President Biden's swift action worked because gas prices are at their lowest level since Putin started his illegal war in Ukraine which also drove up prices.

The fact that gas prices are lowered, angers these right wingers so they now need a new line to attack Biden with, so they attack him for tapping into the Strategic Oil Reserves.

These right wingers are really pathetic and a bunch of frauds. They couldn't have cared less that gas used to be high or anything about the oil reserves. They just need to find something to attack Biden for to push their political propaganda.         

They whined about high gas prices but voted against lowering gas prices for Americans.

They are now whining about tapping into the Strategic Oil Reserves all because they voted against lowering gas prices. 

So, you can see that Republicans create nothing but problems.       

No matter what President Biden does to help Americans, the radical right will find some bogus propaganda talking point to attack him with.

And if these radical MAGA Republicans are "angry" over the Strategic Oil Reserves being used, then they can blame themselves for voting against a bill that would have lowered gas prices instead of having to use the reserves to lower gas prices.

That's why Republicans are nothing but propaganda frauds. No solutions. Only phony talking points to attack and whine.

Trump-loving GOP candidates flopping hard in Midwest governor races: 'They’re unelectable'



A trio of Donald Trump-backing gubernatorial candidates are flopping in their campaigns after winning their Republican primaries.

The GOP candidates in three Midwestern battleground states -- Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin -- are failing to attract voters or donations and running flimsy campaign operations to the dismay of fellow Republicans in the weeks ahead of November's election, and the blame is falling on the former president, reported The Daily Beast.

“This is part of the Trump legacy,” said longtime GOP strategist Doug Heye. “Candidates who otherwise would be considered fringe candidates can win nominations and hold Republicans back, because they’re unelectable in their state.”

Both Michigan and Wisconsin had crowded and competitive GOP primaries, but voters backed former actress and MAGA media personality Tudor Dixon in Michigan and businessman Tim Michels in Wisconsin after Trump endorsed them, but neither has raised or spent much money on their general election campaigns.

“Despite Michels having unlimited financial resources, he’s still not putting it away the way he could be,” said one GOP operative who has run races in Wisconsin. “I don’t see anything right now that would fundamentally shift the dynamic unless there’s another Black Swan economic report coming out.”

Former Rep. Justin Amash, who left the GOP in 2019 and did not run for re-election the following year, said he's "hardly noticed" there's a campaign for governor in Michigan, and what little attention Dixon has generated has been for oddball declarations like vowing to ban "pornographic books" from schools without specifics.

“[She's] running the sh***iest campaign since the dawn of time," said Jeff Timmer, former executive director of the Michigan GOP.

“She’s running an aggressive and low-budget campaign for school board, but she happens to be running for governor,” Timmer added. “It’s hard to understate how unlike any other statewide campaign — Republican or Democratic — it is. There’s just nothing to compare it to.”

Republicans have all but conceded COVID-skeptic doctor Scott Jensen will lose his race to unseat Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz, and none of the three struggling candidates can count on the Republican Governors’ Association to bail them out this late in the game.

“When you typically realize you have a problem,” Heye said, “it’s too late.”

‘Most significant criminal exposure Trump has ever faced’: expert breaks down the legal liabilities



Donald Trump is likely to lose his secret court battle to prevent a federal grand jury in Washington, D.C. from obtaining evidence related to the unsuccessful effort to prevent the peaceful transfer of power after Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election, according to an analysis that aired Friday on CNN.

CNN reported, "Former President Donald Trump’s attorneys are fighting a secret court battle to block a federal grand jury from gathering information from an expanding circle of close Trump aides about his efforts to overturn the 2020 election, people briefed on the matter told CNN. The high-stakes legal dispute – which included the appearance of three attorneys representing Trump at the Washington, DC, federal courthouse on Thursday afternoon – is the most aggressive step taken by the former President to assert executive and attorney-client privileges in order to prevent some witnesses from sharing information in the criminal investigation events surrounding January 6, 2021."

For analysis, CNN's Wolf Blitzer interviewed Ambassador Norm Eisen, who served as White House ethics czar in the Obama administration and currently chairs the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.

"Wolf, it's a continuation of Donald Trump's use of executive privilege, attorney-client privilege, to try to block investigations," Eisen said.

"It failed in Trump vs. Thompson with the Jan. 6 committee, it just failed in the 11th Circuit with the classified documents, DOJ's investigation turned back on," he explained. "He's got a very steep hill to climb."

"As you know, these are the issues I was responsible for when I worked in the Obama White House," he noted. "Executive privilege, since U.S. vs. Nixon, must yield when there are compelling criminal circumstances. Here a judge has already found likely criminality as to Trump, conspiracy to defraud the United States, obstruction of Congress. So he's going to have a tough, tough path in this instance."

Eisen explained, "it's very significant to protect our country and, of course, because this may be the most serious criminal exposure Donald Trump has ever faced."

Trump kids only path to settling with AG Letitia James would require 'implicating' their father: legal expert

According to MSNBC legal analyst Lisa Rubin, there is really only one path for Donald Trump's kids to get out from under charges from New York Attorney General Letitia James regarding real estate fraud, but that would require flipping on their father.

Earlier in the week, James presented a 200-page lawsuit seeking $250 million in penalties against Donald Trump, his three kids, Don Jr., Eric and Ivanka for egregiously inflating the value of properties owned by the Trump Organization.

According to Rubin, there is an outside chance Trump could broach a settlement with James -- and she might welcome it and call it a victory -- but it would be difficult for the Trump kids to seek their own deals without dragging their father down in the process.

Speaking with host Alex Witt, Rubin said it could happen but it would be difficult.

"How about this scenario, Lisa," Witt proposed. "Let's say Donald Trump wanted to fight it, could his kids take a different path? Could they settle on their own? "

"They certainly could," Rubin replied. " But some of the same patterns that we see with the children are all mixed up in misrepresentations by the former president."

"So for example, Alex, there are statements of financial conditions that are certified by the former president, and one of the children might attach that statement of financial condition to an application for a loan," she elaborated. "It's hard to see how certain of the adult children at least could accept responsibility and settle with Tish James without implicating their father."
