AOC Caught Pushing Idiotic FAKE NEWS About Trump Family Member

As of this writing, Ocasio-Cortez has yet to apologize for her actions.

With the democratic party coming apart at the hinges, it is no surprise that the left is latching onto whatever they can in order to disparage President Donald Trump.

Nancy Pelosi and other senior leaders within the party have attempted to quell the rising tide of impeachment among their flock, understanding more accurately the political realities of this ill-fated move than their exuberant, young colleagues.

And when it comes to young and exuberant, one name comes to mind almost immediately:  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

AOC has long been an ardent figure in the “resistance”, taking every opportunity possible to demean the President.  Now she’s taking another path:  Promoting fake news about the President’s family. 

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has been caught spreading a lie about Donald Trump Jr. being part of a “criminal conspiracy.”

“ICYMI: Rep. Khanna got Cohen to testify that Don Jr. is the ‘second executive involved in criminal conspiracy,’”  Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Friday, adding that this is a “big deal.”

But all Ocasio-Cortez is doing here is spreading a lie told by the prison-bound Michael Cohen during his congressional testimony this week.

All of this nonsense surrounds the perfectly legal hush money President Trump paid to porn star Stormy Daniels. She blackmailed the president during the campaign and threatened to go public with the claim the two of them had a one night stand a dozen years ago.

Just how bad is it?

On Wednesday, Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) asked Cohen about the money. The exchange went like this:

Mr. Khanna: The criminal charge against you then states that executive one forwarded your invoice to someone referred to as executive two, presumably Donald Trump Jr., who’s signing this check as executive two, correct?

Mr. Cohen: I believe so.

Mr. Khanna: Are you telling us, Mr. Cohen, that the president directed transactions in conspiracy with Allen Weisselberg and his son, Donald Trump Jr., as part of a civil — as part of a criminal conspiracy of financial fraud, is that your testimony today?

Mr. Cohen: Yes.

The only problem is that none of that is true, as the Wall Street Journal made clear on Wednesday:

In the afternoon session, Mr. Cohen identified the president’s son, apparently incorrectly, as an unnamed Trump Organization executive referenced in the charging documents filed against him by federal prosecutors in New York.

The executives were referenced in connection with the plan to reimburse Mr. Cohen for the payment to Stormy Daniels. In the charging document, federal prosecutors said the first executive, Mr. Weisselberg, forwarded an invoice from Mr. Cohen to the second executive, and it was approved.

The Journal has previously identified “Executive-1” as Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg. Mr. Cohen testified today that “Executive-2” in the charging document was Donald Trump Jr.

As of this writing, Ocasio-Cortez has yet to apologize for her actions.

Jerry Nadler’s ‘Spray and Pray’ Subpoena Schtick Targets More White House Insiders

For Jerry Nadler, denial isn’t just a river in Egypt.

Jerry Nadler

There is an obvious pall of discontent hanging over the democratic party in the wake of the release of the Mueller report. Robert Mueller’s 22 month long investigation into the “RussiaGate” conspiracy theory has left us with more questions than answers, at least in some regard, as President Trump and his team continue to tout the report’s broader realizations.  “No obstruction, no collusion” has become a battlecry as of late, even as federal lawmakers insist that Mueller intended for Congress to make a decision on the “obstruction” piece. Of the democrats looking to continue their digging into the now-completed Mueller report, Jerry Nadler has been instrumental in stoking the fires of discontent, scattering subpoenas throughout Washington DC in hopes of “getting” President Trump…one way or another. His latest legal maneuver is targeting Don McGhan, former White House counsel, who disobeyed the President’s wishes, according to the Mueller report. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., on Monday subpoenaed former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify publicly next month following last week’s release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation. Nadler described McGahn, who stepped down as White House counsel in October 2018, as “a critical witness to many of the alleged instances of obstruction of justice and other misconduct described in the Special Counsel’s report.” “The Special Counsel’s report, even in redacted form, outlines substantial evidence that President Trump engaged in obstruction and other abuses,” Nadler said. “It now falls to Congress to determine for itself the full scope of the misconduct and to decide what steps to take in the exercise of our duties of oversight, legislation and constitutional accountability.” Nadler has given McGhan a set of deadlines as well, urging the former Trump lawyer to testify before May 21, and provide underlying documents regarding…

President Trump and Family Sue Congress Over Tax Tussle

The President is fighting back against the “resistance” democrats who subpoenaed his tax returns…but will the tactic work?

Trump Foundation

Democrats the nation over are digging in their heels after the release of the Mueller report, vowing to continue “resisting” the President no matter what, and by any means necessary. The media have done their part by continuing to divide the nation down political lines in ways that our nation hasn’t seen since The Civil War.  These cable-news cheerleaders are hoping that the nation erupts into chaos, as it will provide them with juicy, can’t-miss television to fuel their advertisers. In this continued crusade to somehow “get” the President, a number of prominent democrats are now revisiting the fight to have the President’s tax returns made public…something that Trump himself has fought nail and tooth against. Now, the Commander in Chief is taking his fight to the next level with a lawsuit. President Donald Trump and his business filed suit against Democratic House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings on Monday to block a subpoena sent last week seeking information about the president’s finances. In the complaint filed in Washington, D.C., federal court Monday morning, Trump’s lawyers said that Democrats have “declared all-out political war” against him. “Subpoenas are their weapon of choice,” the filing states. The lawsuit comes just days after a congressional committee filed subpoenas for several years’ worth of Donald Trump’s tax returns. The President has long avoided making such records public, citing advice from his lawyers regarding ongoing federal audits of the data.
