Letter From Top Australian Official Discredits the NY Times Latest Trump Story




The New York Times released a report on Monday that stated President Donald Trump “pushed” Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison to help provide Attorney General Bill Barr with information for an investigation being handled by the Department of Justice to “discredit” Robert Mueller’s two-year investigation into Russian collusion.

However, a letter from a top Australian official is destroying that particular narrative.

Here are the details via TheBlaze:

The newspaper characterized Trump’s alleged request as “using high-level diplomacy to advance his personal political interests” — the same allegation Democrats and the media have made about Trump’s controversial July conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

But a letter surfaced later Monday discrediting the Times’ reporting.

The letter, which was first reported on by Kerrie Yaxley, an Australian reporter, indicates that Australia proactively reached out to Barr through Scot Hockey, Australia’s ambassador to the United States. This occurred back in May, where Hockey offered assistance to the DOJ’s investigation into the origins of the FBI’s Russia investigation.

Here’s what the letter states:

I refer to President Trump’s announcement on 24 May that you will investigate the origins of the Federal Bureau of Investigations probe into Russian links to the 2016 US election.

I note that the President referred to Australia, the United Kingdom and the Ukraine as potential stakeholders. Moreover, I note that he has declassified intelligence material to support your investigation.

The Australian Government will use its best endeavors to support your efforts in this matter. While Australia’s former High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, The Hon. Alexander Downer, is no longer employed by the government, we stand ready to provide you with all the relevant information to support your inquiries.

The Acting White House Chief of Staff, The Honorable Michael Mulvaney, has been copied on this letter.

Fox News went on to report that Hockey crafted the letter after President Trump spoke with reporters and told them he would direct Barr to seek assistance from other countries in the investigation.

Democrats Downplay New May Jobs Report: ‘Not A Triumph,’ And ‘Not Joyous’



The Democratic National Committee doesn’t seem to be too happy about the good news from the latest job report that actually has a drop in jobless numbers for the first time since this whole coronavirus mess started. Along with downplaying the facts in that case, they also are refusing to acknowledge that Republican led states that reopened the economy were responsible for this uptick. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “What we have in this report is a flicker of good news,” DNC Tom Perez said during a Friday press call. “We’ve gone from a Category 5 hurricane to a Category 4.9 hurricane.” Perez compared the job losses over the last three months, 19.6 million, to the worst three-month stretch of job losses under the Obama administration, 2.3 million, in the middle of the Great Recession. President Trump, Perez said, is “continuing to compete with Herbert Hoover to have the worst record of job loss in at least the last hundred years in the United States,” and blamed the “preventable” losses on Trump failing to act to contain the coronavirus pandemic earlier. The report from the Labor Department stated that the economy has gained almost 2.5 million jobs in the month of May and the unemployment rate fell down to 13.3 percent. The lockdowns are responsible for the destruction of 1.4 million jobs in April. Austan Goolsbee, an economics professor from the University of Chicago, really seemed dismayed by the fact that Trump’s economy might actually have a bit of a rebound. “They’re not a triumph. They’re not joyous.” Every party has a pooper they say. “One month or two months of rebound — if they do not get us back to the levels that we were before this crisis began,” the former chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers…

Roughly ’10 to 15 Percent’ of Americans Are ‘Not Very Good People,’ Says Joe Biden

Imagine if Trump said it…

John Salvatore



Like most (if not all) Democrats, Joe Biden can get away with anything he says because he has the mainstream media on his side. President Trump is obviously not afforded that luxury. Anybody want to get a jump on those inevitable “10 to 15 percent” t-shirts? Check this out, via New York Times: WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. told a group of black supporters on Thursday night that most Americans were good people who think the nation can be improved, while also declaring that “there are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people.” Mr. Biden offered his estimate during remarks in which he spoke about the importance of a president setting a positive example for the nation on racial issues. He accused President Trump of dividing the country while pledging that, as president, he would not. Joe said, “The words a president says matter, so when a president stands up and divides people all the time, you’re going to get the worst of us to come out.” He added, “Do we really think this is as good as we can be as a nation? I don’t think the vast majority of people think that. There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people, but that’s not who we are. The vast majority of the people are decent, and we have to appeal to that and we have to unite people — bring them together. Bring them together.” WATCH: Reactions: H/T: Twitchy
