President Trump Releases Additional Statement on DOJ Special Counsel Appointment…

President Donald Trump held an informal luncheon with news reporters and TV anchors today in advance of the upcoming international visit.  Brett Baier reports President Trump was relaxed, warm and comfortable and showing no change in disposition from all prior encounters. Most of the discussion was off the record, however the president did release the following response to a question from one of the participants at the meeting:

Reporter Question:You made a point about the special counselor and and you believe it hurts this country” —

President Trump: “I believe it hurts our country terribly, because it shows we’re a divided, mixed-up, not-unified country. And we have very important things to be doing right now, whether it’s trade deals, whether it’s military, whether it’s stopping nuclear… all of the things that we discussed today. And I think this shows a very divided country.

It also happens to be a pure excuse for the Democrats having lost an election that they should have easily won because of the Electoral College being slanted so much in their way. That’s all this is. I think it shows division, and it shows that we’re not together as a country. And I think it’s a very, very negative thing. And hopefully, this can go quickly, because we have to show unity if we’re going to do great things with respect to the rest of the world.” 

~ President Donald J Trump

He has picked two fabulous people from the state of SC to be on his team (Mick Mulvaney and Nikki Haley). Both were considered dangerous picks that to date have been fantastic. That builds tremendous leverage in a state.

        When a President is on the election ticket, everything is multiplied by 100. Including the primary that could have this POS taken to the woodshed. This moron knows it and has decided to toss his chips into the mix so that he can walk away having the support of our President! The ART OF THE DEAL!

Mr. McCain has pockets full of money from George Soros and other left wing donors so he does not worry about potential legal fees.

They don’t care about the $20 trillion in debt that future generations not even yet born will have to pay back, if they even get born. They don’t care about all the carnage in the middle east they help cause. They only care about power. They don’t care who they hurt or how many they hurt to get it. They offer no solutions to the Nation’s problems just accusations about a good man (Donald Trump). That won’t be lost on a lot of people. Just like when the democrats lost because they offered up a corrupt rape enabling career criminal who offered nothing and who stood for nothing except her own self interest.

    The 1 reason I feel that this General Council appointment is needed is because the Dems and MSM have created a “speculation news” loop, where by the only way to end it is to waste time trying to disprove non-existant facts. PTrump has been patient in allowing Comey and the idiots in committe – Chaffetz, Gowdy etc and there has been no resolution. So the General Council will not only eventually close this out, but in the meantime, if he finds criminal activity on the Dem side, Mueller can prosecute that as well. So it sucks that it’s come to this, but it’s all upside for the good guys. I pray this backfires on the Deep State bigly. Maybe DJT will clean house while he’s overseas, enjoying the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake ever seen. Ever. MAGA.

      Dick Morris also had a good take on this special prosecutor….he will keep digging and digging and making money for himself and will eventually find something, anything, no matter how small to blow up into something large and this will drag on for all of the president’s term.
      He will need to find anything to justify his own existence as special prosecutor and to hold onto his seat of power
      Don’t forget, in Washington, “power” is King

  22. The_Donald thoughts on special prosecutor

    [–]SamSimeon
    A better reason why it happened so fast is that it was all already known and coordinated BEFORE Comey was fired.
    Consider this hypothetical –
    Trump/Sessions know FBI (Comey, McCabe) are sitting on Seth Rich info. The FBI is itself obstructing justice.
    They know they need a special outside investigator who people will see as unbiased, and they know they need to seize evidence before it gets lost/destroyed.
    They play nice with Comey (and McCabe), so they don’t start destroying the evidence trail, while they secretly arrange for Mueller to take over the Russia investigation.
    They fire Comey, seize the evidence, leak the Seth Rich info to create a casus belli to take the investigation from McCabe, and announce the special counsel… all within a week.
    BOOM.

    As Sundance has pointed out many times, everything Trump does is deliberate and meticulously planned.

    Quite simply, he is operating on a different level when it comes to deep strategy. He’s close to, if not an actual, genius.

    People forget that Trump has been planning his Presidency for decades. Thirty + years! Planning, learning, preparing. He knows his enemies (GOP/Dems/media) better than they know themselves. He knows the battlefield better than anyone else – each hill, stream, forest, plain and sea.

    Trump’s strategies and tactics always have a specific objective. Sundance reminds us, but people forget. Everything is calculated, 24/7.

    For example, Trump has created the impression that he’s a buffoonish dilletante, impulsive and reckless, chaotic and clumsy. He promotes this incessantly, on twitter, in photos, in his speeches.

    Is he? No, of course not.

    If he was, there’s no way he could have built a huge business empire, let alone beaten the GOP for the primary, or Clinton for the Presidency.

    But the caricature helps him. In 3 ways : first, it causes his enemies to underestimate him. Second, it creates a smokescreen behind which he can observe actions on the battlefield. Third, coupled with ambiguity, it gives him the benefit of surprise.

    There’s a great quote by Julius Caesar about how people will see what they want to believe. In other words, it’s possible to create a vision for your enemies that distracts them. Sun Tzu also focussed on the importance of deception, as well as using ambiguity, to create favorable strategic conditions on the battlefield.

    Understand what’s going on right now through that prism.

    Trump is using the media frenzy & congressional hysteria over ‘muh Russia’ to (i) portray himself as above the fray, a virtuous outsider & the victim of a crazed witch hunt – a message aimed at his base (ii) portray the Congress and media for the corrupt pondscum they are (iii) to pin down and distract his enemies on a time-sapping investigation, which allows Trump and his key players (Bannon, Miller, Sessions & Nunes) to focus on ObamaGate.

    Ddxdprion, ambiguity, unpredictability. Keep your enemies distracted and guessing.

    Watch. While his enemies deceive themselves that they have Trump cornered, he will suddenly emerge and stun them with an attack they never considered.

    As Sun Tzu said, ‘Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt’.

    Fascinating times.

        The ‘map’, in my opinion, is the space between the ears of a citizen.

        The terrain is the USA – every state and every home.

        Back to the map, ‘the space’.

        We know from the election that citizens have their public views and their private ones. The beauty of the ballot box is that it allows citizens to express their private views without consequence.

        Influence that decision correctly and you win elections.

        Hence Trump’s victory.

        We also know that it’s a grave error to confuse public views with reality. The MSM is not a reflection of what citizens privately think of Trump. Nor are polls.

        We learned that in the election & Brexit.

        Third and most important. Citizens are not fools. They use multiple sources of information to make judgements and decisions. In many ways they are far better informed than citizens in the past.

        That’s why the MSM is terrified of what they call ‘Fake News’. It threatens their control of information but also their control of ‘the space’. Of citizens.

        Trump (& Bannon) understand this.

        The Dems do not. They are playing a pre-internet strategy of protest and media saturation, oveerestimatng the influence it has on public opinion. They are investing too much time grandstanding with friendly media proxies. They are not understanding the power of the internet and hence do not exploit it cleverly. They make it clear that they regard the public as dumb rubes, not realising that it is actually increasing public distrust and loathing of them.

        Trump has a far more sophisticated understanding. He knows that the space is informed by different elements. The MSM. The internet. Their own prejudices about where America is right now, where it needs to be, how to get there.

        The more Trump & Bannon can influence that space, the more support they gain.

        Sounds simple, but it takes real genius to do this effectively. The attack on the MSM is designed to reduce its influence – make it appear unhinged, unreliable, crazed. The attack on the Dems is designed to do the same thing. And so on.

        Trump is lucky to have the Dems/MSM as enemies. A more hopeless rival you could never find. They are inept strategically & have no vision or positive ideas for the American people. They don’t even understand what America, or Americans are, let alone how they think and feel. They deserve everything they’re going to get.

        Please forgive the long posts.

      I should have added – highlighting the insanity and corruption of.the ‘swamp’ is a very effective way of preparing the public for his attack.

      When Trump strikes – which he will – it will be a great shock. Imagine mass arrests of powerful figures – many Americans will find that difficult to take, even if they agree these people deserve it.

      Trump knows this, so he needs to create an environment where the initial shock wears off and people can assure themselves that everything is under control. He can’t tell people how corrupt they are – they need to convince themselves by watching the farcical clownshow, 24/7.

      The people need to see how bad the system has become. That’s why it’s important that these investigations continue, the media hysteria comtinues & Dem insanity continues.

      When will Trump.strike? I think he’s calibrating everything with Bannon for the mid terms in Nov 2018, when he can wipe the Dems out – as well as purge the GOP, I might add. He’s going to.primary every GOP traitor in the Party. So, Nov 2018 – he needs to string things out for a while.

        Weeks ago I posted this is the 2nd American Revolution. President Trump is going to do it in as peaceful a manner as possible.

        Your posts have giving me great thought. I am saving them and will re-read every month. They give great calmness in the chaos.

        Thank you so much for writing it. God bless.

    I feel that Donald J. Trump is carrying the cross for our salvation as a nation. He is being scourged and abused, in a Christ-like passion. And I pray for him and his Presidency, his family safety and the nation and People of America.

    The cross he bares is expiation for a sinful society, a corrupt Elite and hateful government that has distorted American dreams.

      I have a heavy heart tonight for President Trump as he leaves for Israel. I posted my heart felt thoughts just up thread.

      Your post touches on an additional thought – whether he will walk The Via Dolorosa (Latin: “Way of Grief,” “Way of Sorrow,” “Way of Suffering” or simply “Painful Way”; Hebrew: ויה דולורוזה; Arabic: طريق الآلام) is a street within the Old City of Jerusalem, believed to be the path that Jesus walked on the way to his crucifixion.

      I have walked it and it is a heavy spiritual burden, which President Trump will experience if he walks it. Regardless he carries the burden of saving our nation as you say. I know God appointed and anointed him for this task, but that does not lighten the load.

      He will be confronted with much evil on this trip as anyone who is doing the Lord’s work in His Holy Land will be under great spiritual attack, just like Satan attacked Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane.

      Pray without ceasing. There will be much evil against President Trump as he is on God’s mission in God’s land, but God can use evil for His good purpose.

    “Trump colluded with Russians”
    Is a Null Hypothesis… a hypothesis that the Anti-Trump forces have put forward to be investigated.
    Fair enough.
    Another example of a similar Null hypothesis is “Unicorns exist”

    The way to test such a hypothesis is to LOOK FOR EVIDENCE. If there is NONE the conclusion is that the hypothesis is not true, or at the least The “Scientific Method” (logic) requires that adopt the position that it is not true,

    AFTER 10 MONTHS.. looking.. and finding no evidence… it is past time fore the Anti-Trump Cabal to “Suck it up” and accept that Trump (Campaign) DID NOT COLLUDE WITH RUSSIANS

    and… as a Corollary… UNICORNS DO NOT EXIST

    • Your evidence that YouTube is censoring the video includes the video itself, which links directly back to YouTube, where you obviously CAN view it. (hmmm…)

      You also previously falsely suggested in here that President Trump had released “tapes” on Comey, though the footage is from C-Span.

      Comey did not testify Trump had not asked him to stop the Flynn investigation, because he was not asked that question. The entire line of questioning (which the edited video seeks to obscure by cueing to Comey’s answers without playing the questions) concerns the level of independence the FBI tried to maintain when dealing directly with DOJ staff and superiors.

      All Comey said was that no one at DOJ had tried to get him to shut down an investigation for political reasons. That is all his “That never happened” statement applies to. It can’t automatically be extended globally to persons outside DOJ, such as the President. Comey’s an experienced lawyer. He knows enough to only answer the question that is put before him.

      The narrative that Comey lied by previously testifying that no one (anywhere) had ever pressured him to close an investigation (based on an edited video cued to remove context) is in itself A LIE.

      If we ever expect to get to the truth of these matters, and hopefully take out the “black hats”, we can’t afford to fudge facts ourselves. We have to see Comey’s memos and notes, and hear testimony from those he confided in at the time of his calls and meetings with President Trump. And if the President or Comey made recordings, we need to hear them.

                • i apologize for anything I said that attacks your integrity. We have a disagreement in interpretation over what question Comey actually answered in testimony, that’s all.

                  I provided the unedited video feed, and a time for when Ms. Hirono (of Hawaii) began asking him about the FBI and DOJ. Within their conversation is all the material excerpted or edited in the videos you posted, which you objected to over how PBS, YouTube or someone else altered or censored.

                  It seems to me Comey is only answering about FBI’s relationship to DOJ staff and superiors, and not answering regarding the President, or any others. He might have been completely aware of pressure he contends the President put on him to shut down the Flynn investigation. But we can’t know for sure, because he wasn’t asked about the President – unless I have missed something elsewhere in the 4 hour testimony.

                  So all I’m asking you to do, is to indicate where, not on your edited videos, but on the unedited feed, Comey indicates that NO ONE (period) had ever pressured him to close an investigation. I can’t find any response of Comey’s making that clear, and I suspect some outside web sources are trying to falsely spin the issue, not you personally.

                  After our last conversation, I happened on this article, discussing the same situation. Perhaps another voice can help clarify:
