Author Of The Steele Dossier Says The Pee Tape ‘Probably Does Exist’

Former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele — who provided information for the “Steele Dossier” — has finally decided to speak out and explain why he compiled the document and whether he believes the contents of the report are true.

In an interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC News, Steele admitted that parts of the dossier cannot be cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, but the former MI6 agent says one of the most salacious details is indeed factual: The infamous “pee tape” of Donald Trump with two Russian prostitutes who urinated on a bed that had once been used for former President Barack Obama.

That led Stephanopoulos to inquire:

“So how do you explain if that tape does indeed exist, why hasn’t it been released?”

Steele:

“Well it hasn’t needed to be released?”

Stephanopoulos:

“Why not?”

Steele responded:

“Because I think the Russians felt they got pretty good value out of Donald Trump when he was president of the U.S.”

Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, said in his book, Disloyal, that he looked but never located the tape in Russia:

“But I do know that the decision to go to The Act in Vegas in 2012 was made by the Agalarovs and the Russian men certainly seemed hugely entertained in a venue that boasted golden showers and fairly bristled with the energy of sex for sale. They were the same men who hosted Trump in Moscow in 2013, so it doesn’t seem entirely impossible that the amusements of a golden shower were again part of the Boss’s festivities.”

The failed, one-term former president has repeatedly denied he ever engaged in such a scene with prostitutes while he was in Moscow, even referencing it recently:

In a private speech at [a Republican donor] retreat Thursday, Trump cast himself as the GOP’s savior, saying he had brought the party back from the brink of disaster and helped Republicans hold seats on Capitol Hill—failing to mention that the party lost the White House and control of both the House and Senate under his presidency. “It was a dying party, I’ll be honest. Now we have a very lively party,” he said, to a room of senators, donors and lobbyists, according to a recording of the event obtained by The Washington Post, before boasting of all the endorsements and telephone town halls he had done in the 2020 cycle.

In Trump’s address, one of the final events of the retreat, the former president focused on re-litigating grievances he has retained since leaving office…. Unprompted, he brought up an unsubstantiated claim he had interactions with prostitutes in Moscow before he ran for president. “I’m not into golden showers,” he told the crowd. “You know the great thing, our great first lady—‘That one,’ she said, ‘I don’t believe that one.’”

To paraphrase the Bard of Avon, The tangerine-tinted buffoon doth protest too much.

Ex-DOJ Official Facing Disbarment And Criminal Charges For His Part In Trump’s ‘Election Subversion Scheme’

After it became clear that voters had chosen Joe Biden to be the next president, then-assistant attorney general Jeffrey Clark went into action at the Justice Department, actively trying to get states such as Arizona and Georgia to overturn their results and declare Donald Trump the winner, even though he had lost by an overwhelming margin.

Those actions, in what is being called a coordinated “election subversion scheme,” now have Clark facing disbarment and the possibility of being charged with criminal offenses for his efforts to interfere with the election, according to The Guardian:

The mounting scrutiny of the ex-assistant attorney general, who led the justice department’s environment division for almost two years and then ran its civil division, was provoked by a report from the Senate judiciary committee whose Democratic chairman, Richard Durbin, has asked the DC bar’s disciplinary counsel to examine Clark’s conduct and possibly sanction him.

The panel’s exhaustive 394-page report followed an eight-month inquiry, and included voluntary testimony from former acting attorney general Jeffrey Rosen and his deputy, Richard Donoghue, revealing how Clark schemed privately with Trump about ways to pressure Rosen to help launch an inquiry into baseless charges of voting fraud in Georgia and other states that Joe Biden won.

Former DOJ inspector general Michael Bromwich says Clark clearly crossed the line and should indeed face sanctions for his actions:

“It’s no mystery why Clark is playing hard to get with Congress. He faces a meaningful threat of criminal liability based on the facts contained in the Senate report.

“The Senate report provides overwhelming evidence that Jeffrey Clark became a witting pawn of Trump’s in trying to launch a coup in the justice department, which would then serve as the launching pad for the broader coup whose aim was to overturn the results of the election.”

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) echoed Bromwich, noting:

“Either Jeffrey Clark was an enterprising sycophant looking to score points with a transactional president, or he was a cog in a much larger election-theft scheme. Clark’s testimony under oath will be very important to arrive at the full truth, which is why it’s very hard to imagine he avoids testifying – either before Congress or a grand jury.”

Testimony from Clark could also implicate others inside the administration — former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, Mike Pence, and Trump — in the attempted coup that reached its apex on Jan. 6 when thousands of pro-Trump protesters stormed the Capitol and staged an illegal insurrection.

Additionally, if any members of Congress played a role in the Capitol attack and were part of the larger conspiracy, they too could be facing expulsion from Congress and referral to the Justice Department for criminal charges including sedition.

Those most likely to be implicated include Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX and Josh Hawley (R-MO), along with GOP Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA), Jim Jordan (OH), and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA).

Pro-Trumper Who Lost Congressional Bid By 20 Points Now Claims She Won: ‘The Election Was Stolen’

 

Laura Loomer is a far right conspiracy theorist who also happens to be (surprise!) a fanatical supporter of failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump.

Loomer ran for a congressional seat in Florida during the 2020 election and got her clock cleaned, losing by over 80,000 votes, a full 20 points behind the Democrat, Rep. Lois Frankel, who emerged victorious in the 21st district of the Sunshine State.

But Loomer is now claiming (much like the orange menace who was once president) that she lost because the election was stolen from her.

Appearing on a podcast hosted by Joe Pags, Loomer had this to say:

“I won. I won, the election was stolen, just like it was stolen from Donald Trump. I won my election.”

Loomer’s comments set off a firestorm of ridicule on Twitter:

There’s an old expression, “Lose with dignity and celebrate with grace.” Clearly, Republicans have no idea what that means.

#TrumpInHiding Trends On Twitter After GOP Bars Donald From VA Governor Race

There’s an incredibly contentious (and closely watched) gubernatorial race taking place in the state of Virginia which pits Democrat Terry McAuliffe against Republican Glenn Youngkin, and it’s bringing lots of attention to the state as a possible harbinger of what can be expected in the 2022 midterm elections.

As you’d expect, Democrats have been sending their political stars to Virginia to campaign for McAuliffe. Among those who have made an appearance for the Democrat: President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden; former President Barack Obama; and Stacey Abrams.

You’d think the GOP would counter with the biggest name in their party, former President Donald Trump. But they haven’t, and Youngkin has taken great pains to distance himself from the Donald, The Hill reports:


Democrats are trolling Donald Trump over Virginia GOP gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin’s efforts to distance himself from the former president, including by flying a plane near his Mar-a-Lago resort asking why Youngkin won’t let Trump campaign with him in Virginia.

Add to that a brilliant video from the good folks at MediasTouch, and what you have is a viral posting along with a trending hashtag on Twitter: #TrumpInHiding. Here’s the video:

Since that video was posted on social media, the new hashtag has been used nearly 32,000 times by Twitter users, sending it through the proverbial roof and no doubt enraging Trump, who can’t respond because he’s banned from Twitter and Facebook.

Want to see some of the tweets trolling Trump? Of course you do:

Fox News Viewers Reach New Lows With Their Comments On Bill Clinton’s Hospitalization

Former President Bill Clinton spent Friday night in the hospital due to a urinary tract infection which reached his bloodstream.

The 42nd president is reportedly “on the mend” after receiving antibiotics intravenously, according to CNN:

“He was admitted to the ICU for close monitoring and administered IV antibiotics and fluids. He remains at the hospital for continuous monitoring,” according to a joint statement Thursday evening from Dr. Alpesh Amin, chair of medicine at UC Irvine Medical Center, and Dr. Lisa Bardack, Clinton’s personal primary physician. They said that Clinton was in the ICU for privacy and safety, not because he needs intensive care.

News of Clinton’s illness was also reported by Fox News, which loves to give illusion that it actually covers the news and isn’t just involved in spreading right-wing propaganda and conspiracy theories.

However, on the Fox News website, comments regarding the former president’s health scare were disgusting and downright deplorable. In other words, exactly what we’ve come to expect from Republicans, especially in the Age of Trump. Here’s a sampling:

I’m sure it is an STD he caught from Epstein Island. I wonder if Hillary brought the painting of him in the blue dress from Epstein’s living room to comfort him in the dire time.

Not Covid-19 related for ol’ dirtbag bill means: his herpes flared up just as the claps acted up and spurred his ghonerea into full beast mode until his syphilis came on full motion and swolled up his balls into grapefruits. A hospital trip was warranted, besides with bill being buddies with ol’ bill gates, he can’t ley anybody know he has the virus with the vaccine in his creepy filthy body.

Hopefully he will go slowly, with excruciating pain and agony.

What would really be great is if all his nurses were guys who identify as girls.

What’s ironic is that many of those who commented are probably Trump worshipers. They idolize a man who has admitted that he lusted for his own daughter when she was only 13, has been accused of sexual assault and rape by dozens of women, and paid off a porn star so she wouldn’t disclose the affair she had with him.

The Cult of Trump remains strong. And pure evil.
