A #FakeNews Nothingburger


I may have to use Mom’s parental lock to block her from watching ABC News anymore. I go over there and she’s watching David Muir spread this manure:

Trump asked deputy attorney general if he was part of his team: source

A source familiar with the matter confirms that during a meeting with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in December, President Donald Trump asked Rosenstein about the direction of the FBI’s Russia investigation and asked Rosenstein whether the deputy attorney general was part of Trump’s team.

Rosenstein seemed surprised by the questions, the source confirmed.

CNN, which first reported the story, said the December meeting occurred as Rosenstein prepared to testify before the House Judiciary Committee.

Mom appeared somewhat startled when I screamed “SO FUCKING WHAT?” at her television.

According to this learned idiot, Trump is guilty of witness tampering:

But wait! There’s more!

Well he must know what he is talking about, he’s an expert!

Attorney. Professor @UofNH (journalism, legal advocacy). Analysis @CNN, @BBC, @CBS, @Bloomberg, @VanityFair, others. More: http://sethabramson.net/bio . Views mine.

I’m gonna let y’all in on a little secret – a lot of lawyers don’t know very much about the law. The took some classes and passed some tests and became lawyers. Then they started practicing in one or two areas and forgot most of what they ever knew about everything else.

Criminal law is a specialty that I used to practice. If I had a client accused of witness tampering I would very carefully compare the allegations in the complaint to the statutes to see if the allegations met all the elements. Witness tampering is a specific intent crime. You cannot unintentionally witness tamper. All they have is speculation as to what Trump’s intent was.

But it also takes more than speculation to sustain a complaint. It takes evidence.

There is no “evidence” in this story. They do not allege a single admissible fact. All they have is some hearsay that a conversation took place. Even if the complaint was sufficient on its face the case wouldn’t make it past a preliminary hearing. At an arraignment the prosecution has to allege a crime, but at a preliminary hearing they have to present enough evidence to convince a judge that probable cause exists.

They have nothing.

But let’s say that Trump admits he asked those questions. So what?

That’s his fucking job!

    So how did Trump ask it:

    ARE you on my team, Rod?
    Are YOU on my team, Rod?
    Are you ON my team, Rod?
    Are you on MY team, Rod?
    Are you on my TEAM, Rod?
    Are you on my team, ROD?

      So what is it with all the complaints that the Democrat memo isn’t coming out to the public at the same time as the Republican memo. Why don’t the Dems just leak their memo as usual? They constantly leak info, why should this be different?

      • Lulu says:

        They don’t think they should have to follow the same committee rulz that the Republican MAJORITY was required to do. Rulz apply to Republicans and little people and various forms of inferiors only. If this is brought up they scream “What rulz? I don’t know about any rulz! Why are you lying about RULZ! That is crazy talk. Besides we have MINORITY rulz that only apply to people who don’t know anything, are concussed, and are good and virtuous! Like Hillary. And Mueller.” And their crazy memo can’t be vetted. So scream!

      That is pretty much the entire premise of the BBC series, “Pie In The Sky”, which I really enjoyed.

      “The first episode (The Best of Both Worlds) opens with Crabbe, after 25 years in the force, just seven weeks away from retirement when he finds himself close to catching high-profile fraudster Dudley Hooperman (played by Michael Kitchen), whom he has been trailing for years. While making his escape (with £3–4 million worth of stolen treasury bills) Hooperman shoots Crabbe in the leg, which, although a relatively minor injury, consolidates Crabbe’s desire to retire on his police pension and open his own restaurant in the fictional town of Middleton – Pie in the Sky, technically owned by his wife Margaret, although Henry is the main chef. (Much to Henry’s disgust, Margaret has no feeling whatever for food, seeing it as nothing more than fuel, and has a partiality for bars of chocolate and – horror of horrors, in Henry’s eyes – prawn cocktail flavour crisps). However, during his “final” case, an investigation into police corruption, he is tricked into appearing to take a bribe. Although Crabbe himself is entirely innocent, the circumstances enable his superior, A.C.C. Fisher, effectively to blackmail Crabbe into continuing to take on occasional cases as required, threatening to re-open the inquiry if Crabbe disagrees.”


      Unstated in this wiki article is that Fisher is holding Crabbe’s pension as a hostage; Crabbe is technically on suspension pending investigation which never happens.

      Someone else on Twitter said the same, less than 24 hours. But that FBI had redacted parts of it. Who knows.

      • SHV says:

        From my reading, the memo belongs to the House/committee and neither the Pres./FBI can change it. Trump could refuse to have it released then it would be returned for full H of R vote.

      Why not? The musical, Hamilton, has turned the Founding Fathers, white guys mostly born in Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts into multi-racial immigrants. Hermione and Annie changed their race, and while no one was supposed to notice, most people did. The problem with altering historical figures is few people know enough history to know better. I don’t know if the British commoners know a lot about Margaret D’Angou, but I’d put money on fewer than 10 of my 2000+ students being able to identify her. If you told my 8th graders Hamilton was born in the West Indies, the ones who knew where the West Indies are would assume he was black.

      • Miranda says:

        They changed the races on A Wrinkle in Time as well. Not that I ever liked that book anyway. Sure, make the 14-year-old responsible for saving the adults, and if she’s scared to confront the villain, turn away from her.

        • Jadzia says:

          I adored the Time Series and also am not happy with the casting on the movie. I don’t have a problem at all with cross-racial casting, but in those particular books, the way Meg looks is a HUGE part of her character, and it’s a huge part of her bond with Calvin.

        They are unfortunately usually fuck-ups. https://www.houstonpublicmedia.org/articles/news/2017/09/05/235267/a-daca-dreamer-drowned-trying-to-rescue-harvey-flood-victims-outside-houston/

        The correct story is a DACA applicant, “borrowed” a bass boat along with his friends. They wanted to get in on the action and do-gooding. The problem was none of the three had ever got in a boat before. So thirty miles north of Houston the highway is covered by 10 feet of water, impassable, and they decide to launch the boat in the middle of the woods on a raging flooded creek running under a huge six lane highway overpass. IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT! They immediately lose control of the bass boat, in complete darkness, it hits a ginormous bridge abutment, capsizes, and a guy from Mexico who can’t swim drowns immediately (no life preserver!) and the others float down the deluge, snag a tree, and require a massive amount of personnel and equipment the next morning to fish them out. While people in Houston are sitting in flooded houses waiting for a ride out of it. Of course the media portray this sad fool as a “hero”. And the three may have been drinking “a little”. This is Dreamers.

    I think, THINK, the bobo-heads at the FBI/DOJ have done exactly what was expected. After hiding information, OBSTRUCTING Congress from oversight, begging that their criminal activity NOT be made public, they have changed tactics and now say the MEMO is incomplete, doesn’t have ALL information, is slanted, is not fair. Or something.

    THIS is why Nunes wrote a memo instead of just dumping a bunch of crap out there to be professionally misinterpreted by no-nothings in the media, Dems, and toadie ex-FBI agents acting acting as “experts” who are trying to now float that “we’ll never know what happened!”. Uh. No. The NSA knows, so does the DOJ OIG who scooped up the evidence while the dirty cop bobo-heads were still actively plotting and committing crimes, and so do a small number of Republican Congressmen. The FBI/DOJ doesn’t know what exactly any of them know. They have now seen the MEMO and a couple of them said it is factually correct (and who are these bobos-flipped guys? whistle-blowers? is not clear) but not the underlying evidence and they are crapping their pants to see it or know what it is at a minimum. McCabe is out of the building as is Comey. Who is the ringleader in this crap and who in the FBI is running this oppo and trying desperately to keep the lid on?

    So now evidence has to be declassified and made public because the Dems on the Intelligence committee have to spin that Chairman Nunes is a liar and the FBI has to heinie-cover their crimes and say it is incomplete and slanted and no one will ever know how this happened. Thank you bobos for stepping in it as expected just like the champs you all are. Declassifying made up bullshit and hokey crap out of “Russia House” in the UK’s MI6 is no problem. Because it is lies. Get it? Nothing anywhere says that fake intelligence has to stay secret. Because it isn’t intelligence. it is LIES. Circular non-logic bites again.

    Global Education Body to Measure How Well Schools Teach Attitudes to Mass Migration, Global Warming

    International education rankings will begin testing how well schools are “nurturing” globalist attitudes in pupils on topics like mass migration and feminism.

    “Global competence” tests examining views on global warming, racism, and “fake news” will be sat alongside exams in maths, reading, and science as part of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)’s Pisa tests — one of the most important international benchmarks for education systems.

    Mangano was our Nassau County executive. I voted for him and I was disappointed to find out that he was ‘dirty’. However this is unfair treatment and should be unacceptable!

    Indict de Blasio!


    Mangano: Why was I indicted, but not de Blasio?

    This is great. And remember, it’s called “evolving” when it’s a Democrat and not hypocrisy! But it’s “racism” when it’s a Republican.

      The left is making a mockery of the GOP on vacation when there’s so much work to do. Uhm, wait til next week when the Dems take their retreat time off.

  29. taw46 says:

    The MSM is all over the news saying Nunes changed the memo after the house voted to release it. Now I haven’t read their articles, so I don’t know if they point out the fact that the GOP said items changed were grammatical errors, a change requested by the Dems, and one change requested by the FBI. And it really doesn’t matter if it is in their article, because the headlines say something entirely different.

    So I say, release the original and the changed memo, so we can see who is telling the truth. And also release all supporting documents. I am so sick of this crap. Someone said on FBN last night that the FBI/DOJ is threatening the President over this memo.

    • blowme0bama says:

      Yup, that’s going to be their coverage of it.

      The last couple of days they’ve been running with “GOP written memo” – ignoring that it is the House Intelligence Committee’s memo (which is dominated by GOP).

      Now they’ll turn the memo into a GOP scandal and speculate about criminal charges against Nunes. Just watch.

  30. helenk3 says:


    some good questions asked here. I hope they are asked again in November

  31. Dora says:

    So look what’s back in the news. I’m afraid that after all these years, Natalie and God are the only ones who know what happened that night.

    Release the original and the altered memo so the whole country can see what little bitches the dims are.
    Enough is enough. Go live in some country without extradition. How many pantsuits does the drunken hag need to pack.
