Το τραβάει ο οργανισμός του το κράξιμο… «Δεν ήξερα ότι υπάρχουν τόσες πολλές χώρες» είπε ο Τραμπ!

Posted by IGOR στο Νοέμβριος 7, 2017


Ο κακός χαμός έγινε στον απόηχο μιας ακόμα απίστευτης δήλωσης του Αμερικανού Προέδρου, Ντόναλντ Τραμπ, κατά τη διάρκεια της κοινής συνέντευξης Τύπου με τον πρωθυπουργό της Ιαπωνίας, Σίνζο Άμπε.

«Οι σχέσεις μου με τον Άμπε δεν ήταν και οι καλύτερες, καθώς δεν είχα πολιτικό αξίωμα… και να’ μαι τώρα. Δεν είχα μεγάλη εμπειρία», δήλωσε ο Τραμπ.

Για να συνεχίσει και να… ξεράνει το πάνελ: «Όταν κέρδισα τις εκλογές όλοι με έπαιρναν τηλέφωνο από ολόκληρο τον κόσμο. Δεν ήξερα ότι υπήρχαν τόσες πολλές χώρες»!

    Παραθέτω στους αναγνώστες του Ολυμπία, αυτούσια τά Αμερικανικά άρθρα που αποδεικνύουν την απαράμιλλη ανομία του Τράμπ, και τον οχετό συκοφαντιών και ύβρεων και σκόπιμων παραπλανήσεων που δημιουργεί αυτό το κάθαρμα Τράμπ, για την αμαύρωση της κυρία Κλίντον, ώστε να αποσπάσει την προσοχή, χρόνο, και δυναμικό της FBI μακριά από την εξέταση στο θέμα της Ρωσίας και την συμμετοχή του Τράμπ στο βρώμικο παιχνίδι των εκλογών, μήπως και γλιτώσει την αποτιμητική του έξωση από τον ΘΡΟΝΟ του, στον Λευκό Οίκο. Τρέμει το Impeachment!

    Authors: Trump’s calls for a DOJ investigation into Hillary Clinton’s joint fundraising agreement with the DNC has no basis
    The law allows candidates to set up joint fundraising committees with their parties — as Trump himself did with Trump Victory, they write
    Former Ambassador Norman L. Eisen, a CNN contributor, is a senior fellow at The Brookings Institution and served as President Obama’s «Ethics Czar» from 2009-11. Fred Wertheimer is the founder and president of Democracy 21, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that seeks to promote government accountability and integrity. The opinions expressed in this commentary are theirs.
    (CNN)In recent weeks, President Trump and his allies have been desperately seeking to divert attention away from the Russia/Trump investigation by ginning up an alternative review of a Democratic scandal. The latest effort came in response to reports that Hillary Clinton had gained control over the Democratic National Committee during the primaries by entering into a joint fundraising agreement with it.
    Like Trump’s recent calls for an investigation of Uranium One, this demand is nonsense — and his push for criminal investigations of his adversaries is a shocking violation of our democratic norms.

    Norman Eisen

    Fred Wertheimer
    Let’s begin with the «Tweeter-in-Chief’s» response on Thursday to the claim that Clinton used a joint fundraising committee to control the DNC during the presidential primaries: «This is real collusion and dishonesty. Major violation of Campaign Finance Laws and Money Laundering – where is our Justice Department?»
    The reality is that there was no violation of campaign finance or money-laundering laws here and there is no basis for a Justice Department investigation. The law allows presidential candidates to set up joint fundraising committees with their parties. Examples include Trump Victory, a joint fundraising committee set up by Trump with the RNC thatraised and spent over $100 million for his presidential race. If President Trump thinks this is a crime, then perhaps he forgot that he did it, too.
    That is not to say that the DNC should not review the allegations. As a political matter, parties are supposed to remain even-handed during primaries. But even assuming the claims are accurate (and we note they are contested) that is an issue for political party governance, not for the Justice Department.
    It would be bad enough if this were the only example of President Trump trying to go on the offensive by pushing an alternative and baseless Democratic or Clinton scandal — but it is not. Before today, his diversion campaign centered on a seven-year old transaction involving the sale of a portion of Uranium One, a Canadian uranium company, to Rosatom, the Russian state-owned nuclear energy company.

    Attacks on Hillary Clinton show Team Trump won’t go down without a fight
    The President has obsessively tweeted about the need for investigating Hillary Clinton for wrongly making the sale happen, claiming that it resulted in the United States turning over uranium to Russia. Trump has been touting this since the campaign trail, where he said that Clinton «gave up 20 percent of America’s uranium supply to Russia» and «You know what people do with Uranium, don’t you? It’s called nuclear.»
    His congressional allies in both houses have announced their committees will investigate this matter. Chief of Staff John Kelly has also stood, saluted and called for a Mueller-type criminal investigation, based upon his boss’ claims. The facts get in the way.
    First, the sale of the Canadian company Uranium One needed US approval because of the company’s rights to mine uranium in the United States. It was unanimously approved by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), a group consisting of nine government agencies led by the Treasury Department and including the State Department.
    The sale was also approved by the Nuclear Regulatory Agency. A representative of the State Department cast the department’s vote for approval. The former assistant secretary assigned to the foreign investment committee at the time, Jose Fernandez, said that «Mrs. Clinton never intervened with me on any C.F.I.U.S matter.»

    Second, President Trump’s claims that this sale provided Russia with the uranium to use are false. The only right that Rosatom had was to mine the uranium in the United States. The Russia agency had no right and has never been given an export license to take the uranium out of the United States.
    Third, the original owner of Uranium One, Frank Giustra, gave and pledged more than $100 million to the Clinton Foundation (by way of the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership) as claimed. But Giustra had sold his interests in the company in 2007, three years before the approval occurred and before Hillary Clinton ever became secretary of state.
    Fourth, Uranium One controlled 20% of US uranium production capacity, not supply, when the deal was approved in 2010. Since then additional licenses have been granted to produce uranium and Uranium One’s production has shrunk to 2.3 percent of US production in 2016.
    According to The Washington Post’s Fact Checker analysis, «Given that Uranium One’s production is only 2 percent of an already small total US production — not 20 percent — the overwrought claims that Clinton «gave away» 20 percent of the US nuclear supply or that Russia controls that much US uranium are simply absurd.»

    The latest mutation of the Uranium One farce comes in the form of a resolution that was filed on Friday by three House Republicans that says special counsel Robert Mueller has to recuse himself from the Russia investigation. Mueller was head of the FBI when the sale of Uranium One was approved — a perfectly legal sale. The real grounds: one more effort to divert attention from and obfuscate the Mueller investigation.
    Thus, we end up with President Trump, White House Chief of Staff Kelly and various congressional allies misusing their office to pursue blatantly partisan investigations of matters in which there is no evidence of legal violations. This undermines the special counsel’s investigation and misleads the American people.
    This is not how we do things in a democracy, and the American people are rightly disapproving — Trump’s favorability ratings are at historic lows. Citizens will not stand for it should the President go beyond calling for bogus competing investigations and try to end the one special counsel Mueller is conducting.
    That will produce a firestorm the likes of which has not been seen in this country since President Richard Nixon had special prosecutor Archibald Cox fired — and we all know how that ultimately ended.

      At the core of President Trump’s unfitness and his malfeasance in office is his interaction with the Justice Department and the courts. This goes from the merely verbal denigration of the courts — “a joke,” “a laughingstock,” “so-called judges” — to actual actions such as firing the FBI director, reportedly imploring the FBI director to lay off of former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn, trying to meddle in the prosecution of Joe Arpaio (whom he subsequently pardoned for criminal contempt of court) and, now, directly encouraging the Justice Department to go after a political opponent for spurious, long-ago debunked claims.
      In a series of tweets, he called on the Justice Department to go after the Democrats: “Everybody is asking why the Justice Department (and FBI) isn’t looking into all of the dishonesty going on with Crooked Hillary & the Dems … People are angry. At some point the Justice Department, and the FBI, must do what is right and proper. The American public deserves it!” In remarks to reporters, he continued on in this vein. “I’m really not involved with the Justice Department. I’d like to let it run itself, but honestly, they should be looking at the Democrats. They should be looking at [John] Podesta and all of that dishonesty. They should be looking at a lot of things. And a lot of people are disappointed in the Justice Department, including me.”
      There is no president in modern memory who has repeatedly and directly called on the Justice Department to investigate a political opponent in such a manner. A politician, one could imagine, upon new and actual evidence of wrongdoing, might say something like, “The appropriate authorities should look into this.” That’s not what Trump is doing here. He is both assuming guilt and applying pressure to go after an opponent based on scurrilous propaganda that he and his followers have generated. This is the conduct of a Third World dictator, and by any stretch of the imagination, an abuse of presidential power.
      Trump’s latest call — following “lock her up” chants at rallies that continued after his election — is not an isolated event, but, as noted before, part of an ongoing pattern of trying to lean on the Justice Department either to pursue or not to pursue criminal proceedings against specific individuals. This certainly clears the bar of abuse of power established in the impeachment of Richard Nixon (who “merely” countenanced using the CIA to shut down the FBI’s investigation of the Watergate break-in) and goes well beyond the discrete action of Bill Clinton in lying under oath in the Paula Jones matter and to the grand jury. Trump’s conduct is pervasive, and if allowed to go unpunished will permanently distort our constitutional system. We simply cannot tolerate presidential meddling in our criminal-justice system to protect friends and persecute enemies.
      “There is no bigger abuse of power than the president ordering his Justice Department to investigate his political enemies or back off his political allies, and Trump has done both,” says former Justice Department communications director Matthew Miller. “If he did it in secret, it would be treated as an enormous scandal, but because he does it in public, we have all gotten used to it. But it’s still the worst possible abuse of power, and the kind of thing everyone in Congress should demand end immediately — with the most serious consequences if he doesn’t.”
      Republican leadership, however, has entirely abandoned its constitutional obligations and makes no effort to halt such conduct. The leaders are not acting in good faith to uphold their oaths of office — namely to defend the Constitution.
      President Trump’s troubles have only just begun with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s charges against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, his associate Rick Gates and former foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos, says Washington Post editorial writer Quinta Jurecic. (Adriana Usero, Kate Woodsome/The Washington Post)
      What should a conscientious member of Congress be doing? First, he or she should be condemning the president’s conduct and demanding that it stop. Second, he or she should consider whether the conduct above, if confirmed (e.g. did Trump ask former FBI director James B. Comey to drop the case against Flynn?), would rise to the level of impeachable conduct. In doing so, a member of Congress would want to consider whether, if the conduct were condoned, our system of justice would be damaged henceforth. I would suggest that this is an easy call.
      Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III may come to see the president’s behavior to have been in violation of criminal statutes — witness intimidation, obstruction of justice, etc. He may seek indictments against others who he thinks conspired with Trump, for example, in the firing of Comey. It remains to be seen whether Mueller thinks a sitting president can be indicted (the current Justice Department position is that a sitting president cannot), whether he manages to get Trump named (as Leon Jaworski did with Nixon) as an “unindicted co-conspirator,” or whether he makes (again, as Jaworski did) a non-public referral to Congress (e.g. not publicly exposing grand jury testimony but including it for use by Congress for impeachment).
      Whatever Mueller decides to do, however, members of Congress cannot — consistent with their oaths — remain silent. In doing so, they demonstrate their unfitness to serve and provide ample reason to replace them with representatives and senators who will defend the Constitution.

        The Plum Line
        Opinion
        In new interview, Trump openly rages at checks on his authoritarianism
        By Greg Sargent November 3

        THE MORNING PLUM:
        “Believe the autocrat,” journalist Masha Gessen warned usonly days after Donald Trump won the 2016 election. “He means what he says.”
        In a new interview, President Trump once again telegraphed his desire to see the Justice Department investigate Hillary Clinton over the array of fake scandals that he and his allies have been talking about in recent weeks. But in this case, he went further than that. Asked by radio host Larry O’Connorabout demands that the Justice Department probe those scandals, Trump openly stated his frustration with his inability to get the department to do his bidding in this regard:

        “The saddest thing is, because I am the President of the United States, I am not supposed to be involved with the Justice Department. I’m not supposed to be involved with the FBI. I’m not supposed to be doing the kind of things I would love to be doing. And I am very frustrated by that. I look at what’s happening with the Justice Department, why aren’t they going after Hillary Clinton with her emails and with her dossier, and the kind of money — I don’t know, is it possible that they paid $12.4 million for the dossier, which is total phony, fake, fraud and how is it used?
        “It’s very discouraging to me. I’ll be honest, I’m very unhappy with it, that the Justice Department isn’t going — maybe they are but you know as President, and I think you understand this, as a President you’re not supposed to be involved in that process. But hopefully they are doing something and at some point, maybe we are gonna all have it out.”
        Everyone is making a big deal about that last line, as if it suggests that Trump is going to “have it out” with the Justice Department if it doesn’t do his bidding. But Trump could have meant that eventually, an investigation might take place, and then the (fake) facts will come “out.”
        Instead, the important news here is that Trump signaled that he wants to be able to get the Justice Department and the FBI to investigate his political opponent. What is “discouraging” and “frustrating” to Trump is not simply the fact that the outcome he wants — an investigation into Clinton for whatever fake scandal might provide the pretext for that to happen — isn’t taking place.
        Rather, what’s galling to Trump is the very existence of institutional barriers on him that are designed to protect the independence of law enforcement and insulate it from political interference. Getting law enforcement to target Hillary Clinton is something that he would like to be doing, if only he could do so. As Benjamin Wittes, the founder of the Lawfare blog, put it to me Friday morning: “It’s totally corrupt. Not in the monetary sense, but in the sense that he aspires to get people to violate their oaths of office, having taken his own oath insincerely.”
        This reflects far more than mere disregard for the institutional functionings of our government. It’s deeply entangled with Trump’s own legal and political travails and his anger at having to submit to institutional processes himself. Trump demanded then-FBI Director James B. Comey’s loyalty, then fired him when it was not forthcoming, then admitted that this was due to the Russia probe. Trump openly raged at Attorney General Jeff Sessions for failing to protect him from the investigation. He has since repeatedly demanded that the Justice Department target Clinton — and has now openly declared that he would prevail on the department to do so if only he could.

        Was the DNC rigged in Hillary Clinton’s favor?
        Here is what you need to know about the political storm sparked by Donna Brazile’s allegations against the Clinton campaign. (Amber Ferguson, Melissa Macaya/The Washington Post)
        All this is why Trump’s new comments are doubly worrisome when viewed in the context of the Russia probe. The suite of new scandals that Trump and his media allies have been drumming up — the made-up Uranium One scandal and the absurdly exaggerated claim that payments ultimately leading to the “Steele Dossier” show that Clinton is the one who colluded with Russia — are about more than merely distracting from the ongoing revelations from the Mueller probe. Trump’s allies are brandishing these tales as part of a concerted effort to paint special counsel Robert S. Mueller as a corrupt actor himself, to goad Trump into closing down Mueller’s investigation, either by pardoning Trump’s close associates or moving to remove Mueller.
        The problem for Trump’s allies is that Trump’s lawyers, and Trump himself, are resisting those efforts. But there is no chance that Trump is doing so out of respect for institutional boundaries, since he already has seriously considered moving against Mueller. Rather, he is likely motivated by self-preservation. But Trump’s allies surely know that if there is one way to prevail on Trump to act, it’s if his sense of rage and grievance at the unfairness of the situation boils over. Trump has now openly revealed that he is chafing at the constraints that prevent him from unleashing the Justice Department on Clinton. How is it possible that there is no investigation into Clinton, even as the illegitimate investigation into his own campaign’s conduct continues? If he can’t change the former, his allies will continue telling him, the only way left for him to make the situation fair is to do whatever must be done to shut down the latter.
        It’s perfectly plausible that Trump will not, in the end, opt for this course of action. But when Trump openly advertises his total contempt for the rule of law, as he did in this new interview, we should believe him, and prepare for the attendant possibilities accordingly.

        Opinion | Lessons from the Mueller charges? President Trump should be worried.
        President Trump’s troubles have only just begun with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s charges against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, his associate Rick Gates and former foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos, says Washington Post editorial writer Quinta Jurecic. (Adriana Usero, Kate Woodsome/The Washington Post)
        * WHY TAX CUTS MIGHT NOT JUICE ECONOMY:The New York Times reports that experts are “split” on whether big Trump/GOP cuts to corporate taxes will revitalize the economy, but sums up the view that they won’t rather convincingly:
        Even some ardent supporters of the plan say expectations about heady growth and job gains are exaggerated. Interest rates are already at bargain-basement levels, plenty of potential investment capital is sloshing around, and the official jobless rate is at lows not seen in many years. Moreover, the cost of the tax package will inevitably deepen the deficit and lead to spending cuts that are likely to hit low- and middle-income workers.
        Lawrence Summers, who was Bill Clinton’s treasury secretary, dismisses the notion of an explosion of growth as “delusional” and adds: “Most of the benefits as best I can tell will go to wealthy people.”
        * PRO-TRUMP GROUP LAUNCHES AD BLITZ FOR TAX PLAN: Bloomberg reports that the Trump-allied group America First will launch a multimillion-dollar ad blitz promoting the tax cuts, and the first spot starts Trump’s first campaign manager, Cory Lewandowski:
        Lewandowski, who ran Trump’s 2016 campaign before being pushed out by Paul Manafort, tells “fellow patriots and friends” watching the 30-second spot that they need to rally behind the tax plan and confront special interests that will try to stop the legislation.
        Lewandowski’s sky-high name recognition and blazing charisma will surely enable him to single-handedly shift the debate.
        * AMERICANS KNOW TAX PLAN WILL FAVOR RICH: A new Post/ABC News poll finds:
        A third of Americans support Trump’s tax plan, while 50 percent oppose it, a 17-point negative margin driven by overwhelming opposition from Democrats and skepticism among political independents and people with lower incomes. … Six in 10 say Trump’s proposals on cutting taxes favor the rich, a perception that has dogged Republican efforts in pursuing tax restructuring for months.
        The poll finds, naturally, that a large majority of Republicans favor the plan. But 63 percent of independents say it will favor the rich, which could matter in the midterms.
        * WHY ARE WE EVEN CUTTING TAXES NOW? Paul Krugman asks the big question about the Trump/GOP tax plan:
        Why should tax cuts even be on the table? We have budget deficits, not surpluses, and lots of unmet needs for future spending. U.S. taxes are low, not high, compared with other wealthy countries. Predictions that tax cuts will lead to rapid economic growth have been wrong time and again. And by large margins, voters want taxes on corporations and the wealthy to go up, not down.
        Wait, I know. It’s so Trump can say, “ME CUT CUT CUT!”
        * WHAT ALL THOSE GOP RETIREMENTS TELL US:James Hohmann talks to House Republicans who have announced retirements (with some doing so despite being powerful committee chairs), and sums up the state of mind:
        A lot of Republican lawmakers are just not having that much fun in this unproductive Congress. … You spend most of your time hitting up rich people and lobbyists for money but have little to show for it. Many colleagues in your own party seem unserious about governing. President Trump publicly blames you for his own ineffectiveness. You’re getting attacked from the Steve Bannon wing of the party. The very real prospect of losing the majority next November makes sticking around even less desirable.
        Who knew total GOP control of the White House and Congress could be so complicated?
        * TRUMP IS ‘THE ONLY ONE THAT MATTERS’: The president tells Fox News why it isn’t a big deal that State Department positions are going unfilled:
        “Let me tell you, the one that matters is me, I’m the only one that matters because when it comes to it that’s what the policy is going to be. … We don’t need all the people that they want. … Don’t forget, I’m a business person and I tell my people, well you don’t need to fill slots, don’t fill them.”
        The level of contempt for the basic functioning of government that this shows is remarkable, though at this point unsurprising.
        * AND TRUMP RENEWS CALL FOR PROBE OF HILLARY CLINTON: Trump also renewed his call for prosecution of Hillary Clinton in this new tweetstorm:
        Everybody is asking why the Justice Department (and FBI) isn’t looking into all of the dishonesty going on with Crooked Hillary & the Dems..
        — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 3, 2017
        …New Donna B book says she paid for and stole the Dem Primary. What about the deleted E-mails, Uranium, Podesta, the Server, plus, plus…
        — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 3, 2017
        ….People are angry. At some point the Justice Department, and the FBI, must do what is right and proper. The American public deserves it!
        — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 3, 2017
        We need to treat Trump’s willingness to traffic in this lunacy for what it is: evidence that he’s unfit to serve
