YESSSSSSS (provisionally)
Quote:
In the biggest setback yet for the Trump administration in its decision to end a program that protects undocumented young adults from deportation, a federal judge ruled Tuesday that the government must resume accepting new applications.

Judge John D. Bates of Federal District Court for the District of Columbia said the government’s decision to end the program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, was predicated on the “virtually unexplained” grounds that the program was “unlawful.”

The judge stayed his decision for 90 days, giving the Department of Homeland Security the opportunity to better explain its reasoning for canceling the program.

The department, the judge wrote in his decision, “must accept and process new as well as renewal DACA applications.”

The government officially rescinded DACA in March but the program has continued to accept renewal applications after previous court orders. About 700,000 undocumented immigrants, the majority of them brought to the United States as children, had signed up for the Obama-era program since it was created in 2012.

Advocates hailed the ruling, saying it highlighted the failure of the administration to justify terminating the program.

“This decision verifies the Trump administration failed to prove the DACA program is illegal,” said Ali Noorani, executive director of the National Immigration Forum, a Washington, D.C. advocacy organization. “Either President Trump finds another way to end the program, tossing hundreds of thousands of young people into deportation proceedings, or he works with Republicans and Democrats to find a legislative solution that secures our border and ensures Dreamers continue contributing to our economy.”


should be amusing, to see what excuse they manage to dream up over the next 90 days.

sadly, the chances of a) trump coming up with a solution or 2) trump, republicans and democrats working together are virtually nil.

So there's a lot to keep up with. Which is bad, because I basically skipped a day of Internet and lost my place in this crayon-scribbled manuscript we call The Trump Administration. Anyway, recent highlights I've just about caught up on.

Trump is firing yet another lawyer, as has become common practice for his circle of conspirators.
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/02/us/politics/emmet-flood-ty-cobb-white-house-lawyer-special-counsel.html
Quote:
The new lawyer, Emmet T. Flood, will replace Ty Cobb, the White House lawyer who persuaded Mr. Trump to cooperate with the special counsel for the first year of its investigation. Mr. Cobb assured the president that doing so would bring the investigation to a swift end.

(Late last year Trump assured us he was very happy with his legal team)

Apparently none of his current lawyers have enough security clearance to examine some of the evidence related to the probe.
Quote:
Trump’s former lead lawyer John Dowd had been the only member of the president’s personal legal team with a security clearance, the people said. When Dowd quit in March over disagreements with Trump on legal strategy, Jay Sekulow became the lead lawyer on the investigation and is still waiting for his clearance.




That glowing, some might say spurting and sticky letter about Trump's health by his personal physician during the campaign? Actually dictated by Trump.

Donald Trump wrote own health letter, says physician Harold Bornstein


Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, is contradicting Trump's story and says Trump paid Michael Cowen the $130K hush money for the Stormy Daniels thing.
Quote:
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s new lawyer Rudy Giuliani said Wednesday that Trump repaid his personal attorney Michael Cohen for a $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels, directly contradicting the president’s past statements.

During an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Giuliani said the money had been “funneled ... through the law firm and the president repaid it.”

Asked if Trump knew about the arrangement, Giuliani said: “He didn’t know about the specifics of it, as far as I know. But he did know about the general arrangement, that Michael would take care of things like this, like I take care of things like this for my clients. I don’t burden them with every single thing that comes along. These are busy people.”

Trump told reporters several weeks ago that he didn’t know about the $130,000 payment to Daniels as part of a nondisclosure agreement she signed days before the 2016 presidential election.

Asked aboard Air Force One whether he knew about the payment, Trump said flatly: “No.” Trump also said he didn’t know why Cohen had made the payment or where he got the money.



Trump seems to have made military sales with Ukraine conditional on not cooperating with the Special Counsel's investigation and not looking too deeply into Manafort's conduct in their country.

gotta say, i always thought that. just sounded way too trumpian.

you forgot to point out that flood was clinton's attorney during his impeachment.



it's like every move trump makes just screams 'innocent!!!"

oh, and may be just rumor but trump may replace CoS Kelly with....corey lewandowski.

Quote:
Kurtz reports that Trump “is increasingly focused on the midterms” and believes “Lewandowski can be a valuable asset” to his team as they campaign against Democrats for control of the House of Representatives.


because in a world where the president has to deal with a nuclear-armed korea, keeping iran without nukes (ideally, without a war) and a potential trade war with....pretty much everyone, naturally the most important thing is to focus on the midterms.

So Giuliani was walked back very much.

Trump walks back Giuliani: 'He'll get his facts straight'

Quote:
(CNN)President Donald Trump publicly undermined his attorney Rudy Giuliani on Friday, saying the former New York City mayor had only a loose grasp of the Stormy Daniels business when he spoke about it earlier this week.
A clarifying statement from Giuliani issued four hours later did little to illuminate the matter. Instead, the series of pronouncements only lent further confusion to an issue that has deeply undercut the administration's credibility and has fueled the impression of a West Wing in crisis.
"He''ll get his facts straight," Trump stipulated of his longtime friend on Friday morning, before adding: "There has been a lot of misinformation. I say, You know what? Learn before you speak. It's a lot easier."

I have sent my irony meter in for repair or replacement.

Quote:
Trump seemed to initially back up Giuliani's statement on Twitter the morning after his interview. But he reversed course on Friday.
"Everything said has been said incorrectly," he said. Giuliani, who announced he was joining Trump's legal team 15 days ago, "started yesterday," the President insisted.
"When Rudy made the statements -- Rudy is great -- but Rudy had just started, and he wasn't totally familiar with everything," he said.
Quote:
Trump had previously said he wasn't aware of the payment. He told reporters aboard Air Force One a month ago "no" when questioned about his knowledge of the arrangement.


He grew indignant on Friday when pressed about the shifting version of events.
"We're not changing any stories," Trump demanded on the Andrews tarmac. "This country is right now running so smooth and to be bringing up that kind of crap, and bringing up witch hunts all the time, that's all you want to talk about."
As reporters interjected, Trump chided them -- "excuse me, excuse me" -- and insisted they review what he'd said.
"You take a look at what I said. You go back and take a look," he ordered. "You'll see what I said."

The remarkable series of appearances did little to clarify matters, which have served to erode the credibility both of the President and his aides, who insisted Trump knew nothing of the hush payments.
Trump, however, said there should be no confusion.
"It's actually very simple," he declared without explanation.[WoC note: lawlz!]

RE: the bolded, MSNBC sums it up in a tweet:

Quote:
Here's what Pres. Trump said in April on Air Force One about the Stormy Daniels payment: Reporter: "Mr. President did you know about the $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels?" Trump: "No. No."

Video included in the tweet.

So I guess Trump continues his long-established pattern of ret-conning stuff we already have records for and throwing his underlings for a loop when they're trying to take him at what is word was, rather than what it would be in the next 24 hours.
Cohen (who graduated from one of the most least prestigious law schools in the country) said that only he and Trump knew what was going on with those payments:
Donny Deutsch: Cohen Told Me Rudy ‘Doesn’t Know What He’s Talking About’
Quote:
Michael Cohen is “very frustrated” by claims that Rudy Giuliani made in a Thursday press blitz about hush money payments Cohen doled out during the 2016 presidential campaign, MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch said Friday.

Deutsch, appearing on Morning Joe, said he’d spoken to Cohen about Giuliani’s revelation that President Trump reimbursed the $130,000 Cohen paid to adult film star Stormy Daniels to keep her quiet about her alleged sexual relationship with Trump.

“I spoke with Michael Cohen yesterday and his quote about Giuliani was: He doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” Deutsch said.

“He said look there’s two people that know exactly what happened, myself and the President and you’ll be hearing my side of the story,” Deutsch continued. “And he was obviously very frustrated with what had come out yesterday.”

Giuliani’s marathon press tour complicated the previous public stances of both Cohen and Trump’s team. According to Giuliani, Trump repaid Cohen through a $35,000 per month retainer. While Giuliani argued the funds were unrelated to the campaign and therefore not a violation of campaign finance law, he also acknowledged that it would have been damaging if news about Trump’s affair had come out weeks before Election Day.

Cohen, whose financial dealings are under investigation by federal prosecutors in New York, had initially claimed he made the payments out of his own pocket without Trump’s knowledge.

As recently as early April, Trump claimed he had no knowledge about how Daniels was paid. On Thursday, he acknowledged giving Cohen a monthly retainer to “stop the false and extortionist accusations” made by Daniels.

What a shit-show. Either Trump brought on a pal for a lawyer who was not privy to any information and then allowed him to speak completely off-the-cuff bullshit to the press about shit he knew nothing about, with an air of authority on the matter. In that case he's displaying his characteristic "the best people!" habit* that has seen him fire or run off more of his own hand-picked executive officials than any US president in recorded history.
-OR-
Giuliani was correct, and we have a president who blindly hands nearly at least half a million in cash over to his fixer annually to handle things like sex scandals without bothering to care about the details. An easily compromised person if ever there was one. Even if the claims are baseless like U.S. President Donald Trump says, that means nearly anyone could make up a lame "scandal" and get hundreds of thousands of dollars as a payout for not going to the press.

If anyone cares, these are Giuliani's "views" after being yanked back on the leash by Trump:



I like how the parting "view" is a total non sequitur to the actual story. Carthago delenda est, etc.


Meanwhile, as per the usual tactic there is an effort by White House staffers to get on Fox shows and plead the case for the president to take some course of action or other. Why? Because he famously doesn't listen to people, he listens to TV. He's more likely to go along with his advisors if he hears them on Fox than in person.
In this case, Shep Smith revealed that they're trying to get him to avoid an interview with Meuller.

Quote:
“There appears to be a concerted effort to put a bunch of people on television, having seen those questions, and to say into the television — like this channel — ‘don’t do it, Mr. President. Don’t do it,'” Smith said, referring to the recently leaked list of questions Mueller reportedly plans to ask Trump in a potential interview.





* About that. Guess who Il Douche picked to head up his presidential council on sport, fitness and nutrition.
If you guessed Dr. Fucking Oz, well, congratulations and also get your head examined please. Anyone who can anticipate this president's actions in greater specificity than "I don't know but it's guaranteed to be a bad idea" is someone too close to Trump's own thinking for a healthy diagnosis.

Separately-at-the-hip from all that:
Exclusive: Nunes demands Justice Department records. Then he doesn't read them.
Quote:
House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes was livid.
For months, he had been demanding a fully uncensored version of a highly sensitive document from the Justice Department explaining how the Russia investigation began in 2016, but he wasn't getting it.
As the standoff escalated, Nunes began warning Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein -- the man in charge of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation -- that he could face contempt of Congress, or even worse.
"We're not going to just hold in contempt," Nunes said to Fox News last month. "We will have a plan to hold in contempt and to impeach."

Nunes had already been offered time to review a copy of the electronic communication formally authorizing the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, but he had publicly demanded to see what was behind certain blacked out lines.
Facing the growing pressure, and outrage from President Donald Trump, Rosenstein finally relented in early April -- and granted Nunes and Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina access to the document with only minimal redactions to protect the name of a foreign country and agent, along with all members of the House Intelligence Committee.
But when the pair arrived at the Justice Department to review the electronic communication, officials were caught off-guard by his next move. Nunes -- sitting with a copy of the document in an unopened folder directly in front of him -- opted not to read it, according to four sources with knowledge of the situation.
Gowdy, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, reviewed a copy and since then nearly a dozen other lawmakers have gone to the Justice Department to read the document, sources say.
As Nunes has moved aggressively to publicly sow doubt about the Russia investigation, the moment marked at least the second time that he has demanded sensitive documents from the Justice Department, only to choose not to read them -- allowing his staff or Gowdy to pore through the materials instead. The California Republican admitted in February that he did not read any applications under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

[...]

Asked later for a yes-or-no answer, Nunes repeated the same refrain: "You know I don't talk to you about this stuff."
A Nunes spokesman also would not say if his boss read the documents he's demanded from the department.
"I admire CNN's unrivaled ability to faithfully produce foolish hit pieces on Republicans that are spoon-fed to them by anonymous sources," Nunes spokesman Jack Langer said in a statement, providing no further comment.


[...]


Nunes took a similar tack when he pushed the Justice Department to give him full access to classified materials regarding the dossier on Trump and Russia, namely the FISA application to monitor Page, who advised the Trump campaign on foreign policy issues. After months of furious lobbying, where House Speaker Paul Ryan got involved as well, the Justice Department ultimately allowed lawmakers to review the FISA application.
Initially, the Justice Department let the House Intelligence Committee and other panels designate one Republican and one Democratic lawmaker, along with two staff members, to review more than 1,000 pages of classified materials. Nunes designated Gowdy to do so on his behalf. That review later became the basis of the so-called, "Nunes memo," which Nunes and Trump seized on to accuse the Justice Department and FBI of improperly monitoring Page just weeks before the 2016 election.
[...]
At least 19 lawmakers have personally reviewed the FISA application at the Justice Department, according to sources. Nunes' senior staff has reviewed the records. But Nunes still has not done so.

[...]

Several Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee say the electronic communication shows the documentation for the start of the Russia investigation was unfounded.
"It's a fair question: What evidence did you have to start this investigation?" said Rep. Chris Stewart, a Utah Republican who sits on the committee. "Well, the answer isn't very good."
[NY Rep. Peter T.] King, who also sits on the panel, said that it showed the start of the investigation was "baseless."
"To me, there was no real basis for the investigation to begin in the first place," King said. The FBI was "using a backdoor process to rely on data, which did not rise to any intelligence level. Rumors, rather than intelligence."
King said at the time that he hadn't yet read the document, but had been briefed by Nunes' staff.

The greatest investigative minds of our time.

That... is a new low. I honestly thought it was a joke first.

While bitching and moaning about how the Steele Dossier is the work of a foreigner spy, Trump had apparently hired foreign spies to dig up dirt on the Obama advisors that helped craft the successful Iran nuclear deal.


Revealed: Trump team hired spy firm for ‘dirty ops’ on Iran arms deal

Israeli agency told to find incriminating material on Obama diplomats who negotiated deal with Tehran

Quote:
Aides to Donald Trump, the US president, hired an Israeli private intelligence agency to orchestrate a “dirty ops” campaign against key individuals from the Obama administration who helped negotiate the Iran nuclear deal, the Observer can reveal.

People in the Trump camp contacted private investigators in May last year to “get dirt” on Ben Rhodes, who had been one of Barack Obama’s top national security advisers, and Colin Kahl, deputy assistant to Obama, as part of an elaborate attempt to discredit the deal.

The extraordinary revelations come days before Trump’s 12 May deadline to either scrap or continue to abide by the international deal limiting Iran’s nuclear programme.

Jack Straw, who as foreign secretary was involved in earlier efforts to restrict Iranian weapons, said: “These are extraordinary and appalling allegations but which also illustrate a high level of desperation by Trump and [the Israeli prime minister] Benjamin Netanyahu, not so much to discredit the deal but to undermine those around it.”

One former high-ranking British diplomat with wide experience of negotiating international peace agreements, requesting anonymity, said: “It’s bloody outrageous to do this. The whole point of negotiations is to not play dirty tricks like this.”

Sources said that officials linked to Trump’s team contacted investigators days after Trump visited Tel Aviv a year ago, his first foreign tour as US president. Trump promised Netanyahu that Iran would never have nuclear weapons and suggested that the Iranians thought they could “do what they want” since negotiating the nuclear deal in 2015. A source with details of the “dirty tricks campaign” said: “The idea was that people acting for Trump would discredit those who were pivotal in selling the deal, making it easier to pull out of it.”

According to incendiary documents seen by the Observer, investigators contracted by the private intelligence agency were told to dig into the personal lives and political careers of Rhodes, a former deputy national security adviser for strategic communications, and Kahl, a national security adviser to the former vice-president Joe Biden. Among other things they were looking at personal relationships, any involvement with Iran-friendly lobbyists, and if they had benefited personally or politically from the peace deal.

Investigators were also apparently told to contact prominent Iranian Americans as well as pro-deal journalists – from the New York Times, MSNBC television, the Atlantic, Vox website and Haaretz, the Israeli newspaper among others – who had frequent contact with Rhodes and Kahl in an attempt to establish whether they had violated any protocols by sharing sensitive intelligence. They are believed to have looked at comments made by Rhodes in a 2016 New York Times profile in which he admitted relying on inexperienced reporters to create an “echo chamber” that helped sway public opinion to secure the deal. It is also understood that the smear campaign wanted to establish if Rhodes was among those who backed a request by Susan Rice, Obama’s final national security adviser, to unmask the identities of Trump transition officials caught up in the surveillance of foreign targets.

Although sources have confirmed that contact and an initial plan of attack was provided to private investigators by representatives of Trump, it is not clear how much work was actually undertaken, for how long or what became of any material unearthed.

Neither is it known if the black ops constituted only a strand of a wider Trump-Netanyahu collaboration to undermine the deal or if investigators targeted other individuals such as John Kerry, the lead American signatory to the deal. Both Rhodes and Kahl said they had no idea of the campaign against them. Rhodes said: “I was not aware, though sadly am not surprised. I would say that digging up dirt on someone for carrying out their professional responsibilities in their positions as White House officials is a chillingly authoritarian thing to do.”

A spokesman for the White House’s national security council offered “no comment” when approached. However, the revelations are not the first time that claims of “dirty tricks” have been aimed at the Trump camp. Special counsel Robert Mueller is leading an investigation into apparent attempts by Trump’s inner-circle to dig up damaging information on Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Of particular interest is a meeting involving the US president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr, his brother-in-law Jared Kushner and then-campaign chair Paul Manafort and a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer who had promised damaging information about Clinton.

Trump has repeatedly signalled his intention to scrap the Iran deal, denouncing it as “the worst deal ever.” In a January speech the US president accused his predecessor of having “curried favour with the Iranian regime in order to push through the disastrously flawed Iran nuclear deal.”

Last Monday, Netanyahu, accused Iran of continuing to hide and expand its nuclear weapons know-how after the 2015 deal, presenting what he claimed was “new and conclusive proof” of violations.

However, European powers including Britain responded by saying the Israeli prime minister’s claims reinforced the need to keep the deal.

On Thursday the UN secretary general Antonio Guterres urged Trump not to walk away from the deal, warning that there was a real risk of war if the 2015 agreement was not preserved. The following day details emerged of some unusual shadow diplomacy by Kerry, meeting a top-ranking Iranian official in New York to discuss how to preserve the deal.

It was the second time in around two months that Kerry had met foreign minister Javad Zarif to apparently strategise over rescuing a pact they spent years negotiating during the Obama administration. On Sunday Boris Johnson, the foreign secretary, will arrive in Washington, hoping to persuade Trump to keep the deal, known as the joint comprehensive plan of action (JCPOA).

Straw, who was foreign secretary between 2001 and 2006, said: “The campaign against the JCPOA has been characterised by abuse and misinformation. It is the best chance of ensuring Iran never develops a nuclear weapons programme, and it is insane to suggest abandoning the deal could do anything but endanger international security.”

I tried to explain to a deplorable once that I live in Europe (I even live in a neighbourhood with many Muslims) and it's perfectly fine. I don't quite remember his answer, but it did feature the term "whore".

From the way Trumpists talk, you'd think England was in the grip of lawlessness.

I'd argue we have the exact opposite problem looming right now.

hey - he looks good on TV! that appears to be his primary concern. it was why he figured dr. jackson could handle the VA - he looks good. Rolling Eyes

but it does look like trump was right about one thing - lawyer-client privilege is dead. i figure rudy has pretty well killed it off.

i do not see how this an not be considered a crime. he's hired foreign agents to spy on US government officials (ok, former, but still....)

isn't netanyahu supposed to be tried for corruption or something? that really can't happen soon enough.
