A ‘Legal Hurricane’ Is About To Hit Trump: Rachel Maddow Drops a Truth Bomb About Russia Probe

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is heating up, but because of the staffing chaos that seems to have plagued the rest of his administration, the president now finds himself with virtually no qualified attorneys left to defend him in the Russia probe. Trump’s top personal lawyer, John Dowd, resigned last week. Reports say he’d grown frustrated with Trump’s unwillingness to heed his legal advice, including his view that an interview with Mueller would be too risky. And shortly after announcing that Trump was adding two new lawyers to his legal team, personal Trump attorney Jay Sekulow had to walk back the announcement, saying the two wouldn’t be working on the…

David Hogg just won his first major victory against Fox News

The modern Republican Party thrives on lies and cruelty. They make their arguments in bad faith, with nothing but their own profit and power in mind. It’s this toxic ethos that has led to their recent, inexcusable mistreatment survivors of the horrific Parkland school shooting. After their teachers and classmates were brutally gunned down by a shooter wielding an AR-15-style rifle, the students became activists pushing for immediate, meaningful gun reform. In response, conservatives launched an all-out assault on their credibility and character. One of the worst attacks came from Fox News host and cryptofascist water carrier Laura Ingraham. Apparently, she and her NRA-beholden bosses are so worried about the Parkland teens…

Lawrence O’Donnell Exposes Trump’s Total Fear Of Rachel Maddow

While referring to a list of people that Trump has attacked on Twitter, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell pointed out that Rachel Maddow’s name is not on the list because Trump fears Maddow. Video: https://twitter.com/twitter/statuses/978833709888671744 O’Donnell said, “It’s actually — I shouldn’t say it’s all. It’s a sample. It’s some alphabetical clumpings. It’s actually a tiny sample. And Stormy Daniels’ name is not up there. Because he just hasn’t gotten around to it. By the way, Rachel, you know whose name is not up there? Rachel Maddow…Apparently, he is so afraid of you. That’s what it means if he hasn’t attacked you. He is so afraid of you, he doesn’t want people…

POPE FRANCIS: AFTER U.S. GUN CONTROL MARCHES, CHURCH LEADER WANTS YOUTH TO KEEP SHOUTING

https://twitter.com/Pontifex/status/977870209817239554   With the “March for our Lives” rally fresh in the minds of hundreds of thousands of gun control supporters who took to U.S. streets in protest this weekend, the leader of the Catholic Church has called on young people not let themselves be silenced. Kicking off Holy Week services on Palm Sunday, in the lead up to Easter, 81-year-old Pope Francis addressed the tens of thousands of people who had gathered in St. Peter’s Square, Vatican City, and referenced a number of bible passages including lessons that could be learned from the story of the crucifixion. “Young people, you have it in you to shout.” Francis said. “It is…

Armed white men just showed up to terrorize the student’s March For Our Lives rally

Today, even as impassioned young people from across the nation took to the streets, inspiring millions by refusing to accept America’s deadly gun violence epidemic, some ill-tempered NRA minions used the occasion to not only cling to their guns but try to intimidate those rallying with threats of violence. Clad in NRA gear and President Trump’s wearable propaganda, “Make America Great Again” hats, some counter protestors even carried AR-15s — the notorious assault rifle that has taken the lives of so many innocent young Americans — to harass ralliers. That the grotesque displays ended without incident is nothing short of miraculous. That the presence of these self-proclaimed Second Amendment enthusiasts…
