With rumors that President Donald Trump is looking to fire Robert Mueller circulating around Washington once again, White House lawyer Ty Cobb released a statement assuring the media that the Special Counsel is not on the hot seat. The controversy over Mueller’s employment status was relitigated after Trump attacked the probe into Russian election tampering on Twitter, tweeting this morning, “Why does the Mueller team have 13 hardened Democrats, some big Crooked Hillary supporters, and Zero Republicans? Another Dem recently added…does anyone think this is fair? And yet, there is NO COLLUSION!” The post was met with immediate backlash, as many in the media saw it as a sign that Mueller’s days are numbered. However, Cobb stepped forward to assure Americans that Trump is not looking to disrupt the special counsel, despite his constant expression of disapproval toward Mueller. “In response to media speculation and related questions being Continue reading "Ty Cobb Denies Mueller Removal Rumors: Trump is ‘Not Considering or Discussing the Firing’"
With Russian and British relations on rocky terms due to the recent chemical attack on a former spy in the UK, the Ruskie embassy in London is back to their trolling ways, as they mocked those accusing them of being involved in the incident in a tweet today. While the Russian embassy in UK has previously posted a Pepe the Frog meme and dropped a Tom Clancy reference to make fun of those accusing the country of election tampering, they took the mockery up a notch by tweeting a photo of author Agatha Christie’s detective character Poirot, who is the focus of a long-running British mystery TV show, along with the claim that there is no “evidence” of Russians being involved in the attack. “In absence of evidence, we definitely need Poirot in Salisbury!” The official account tweeted along with the photo of the television character.
White House officials said on Sunday that President Donald Trump’s plan to combat the opioid crisis would “seek the death penalty against drug traffickers when appropriate under current law,” according to Politico. That’s after Politico reported on a version of the plan last week that called for the death penalty for drug dealers as well as traffickers in certain cases. “The Department of Justice will seek the death penalty against drug traffickers when appropriate under current law,” White House director of the Domestic Policy Council Andrew Bremberg said. Trump has publicly expressed his desire to enforce strict punishments for drug dealers, and proposed at a recent rally that dealers be given the death penalty. The president has reportedly expressed admiration in private of the brutal crack down in the Philippines on drug dealers and users that has left thousands dead from extrajudicial killings.

President Donald Trump is truly making book sales great again. The commander in chief sent yet another one of his least favorite people soaring to the top of the best sellers lists overnight — all thanks to his incessant tweeting. Former FBI Director James Comey’s book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, climbed from No. 15 on Amazon’s best sellers list Saturday to the No. 1 spot by Sunday afternoon. The book will detail Comey’s time in office, as well as his interactions with the president, ultimately culminating with his historic firing amid an ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. All orders for the book are currently pre-sale, since it’s set for release on April 17. In other words, Comey is already a bestselling author, and his book hasn’t even been published yet.

Former Hillary Clinton adviser Philippe Reines urged fellow Democrats to appear on Fox News more often, as he argued the “highest rated” network is a battlefield that the left should not leave “uncontested.” Reines, who made the comments on Fox News’ Media Buzz today, defended his old boss Clinton, but suggested Democrats try something new in 2020 — even if it means going out of their comfort zone. “I mean, Fox is the highest rated, most profitable network,” argued Reines. “I don’t see the point in just letting this battlefield go uncontested… I’m not criticizing [Clinton’s] campaign. I have been with her and been in politics for long enough to know this is a Democratic-wide problem.” He continued, “It’s difficult coming on Fox, but it’s important. If I’m not sitting here, I don’t know who would be. And they would not be giving as strong a defense of a Continue reading "Ex-Hillary Adviser Philippe Reines Urges Dems to Appear on Fox News: Go to the ‘Battlefield’"
