President Trump’s Latest Statement Has Paul Manafort’s Interest Piqued

There is little doubt that the Manafort team is acutely aware of the President’s most recent mention of his former acquaintance.

Paul Manafort

Robert Mueller and his intrepid band of investigators seem to know that they are standing very squarely in the vicinity of the proverbial chopping block.

Having received written answers to their questions from the President himself, one can only imagine that a final report on the allegation of Russian collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin is forthcoming, post haste.  Robert Mueller certainly wouldn’t risk gaining these long sought after bits of information and then simply waiting for acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker to starve his investigation of funds.

No, Mueller is likely circling his final prey, waiting for a chance to make his snatching maneuver.

The President certainly understands this as well, and has not been shy about prodding the Special Counsel.  The Commander in Chief’s latest sentiment regarding Paul Manafort has undoubtedly been on Robert Mueller’s mind this afternoon.

A pardon for ex-campaign chairman Paul Manafort is not “off the table,” President Trump said on Wednesday following a report that Manafort’s lawyer has briefed Trump’s lawyers about his testimony in the Russia investigation.

Trump told the New York Post that he hasn’t talked about clemency for Manafort but that the door remains open.

“It was never discussed, but I wouldn’t take it off the table. Why would I take it off the table?” Trump told the newspaper.

Trump’s interview followed a report late Tuesday in The New York Times that Manafort’s attorney has been briefing Trump’s lawyers about what Manafort has been telling investigators with Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller.

President Trump, possibly sensing that Mueller himself is becoming cornered, a blunt and threatening messagetweeted to his opponents.

The suspect involved in the killing of three individuals and the wounding of several others at Naval Air Station Pensacola was apparently a Saudi Arabian aviation student. Authorities investigating the shooting that occurred on Friday are working to find out if the incident is terrorism-related. The suspect, as of this writing, has not yet been named, though it is known this individual was here in the United States to receive flight training. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: The U.S. Navy confirmed that the gunman and two other people were killed in the mass shooting, which took place in one of the base’s classrooms. Eight people were transported to the hospital where an additional victim died. Two of those wounded in the shooting were deputies who engaged in a shootout with the man. One was shot in the arm and another in the knee but both are expected to survive. The gunman was killed shortly before 8 a.m. by other responding law enforcement officers. More than 23,000 military and civilian personnel work at NAS Pensacola. It’s considered one of America’s oldest stations and is known to be the home of the well known Blue Angels flight demonstration team.

Hungarian Officials Says Impeachment Witness George Kent Not Credible. ‘I Was There, He Was Not.’

Published

on

A top Hungarian official recently stated that George Kent is not a credible witness for the impeachment proceedings against President Trump, poking fun at his allegations that Prime Minister Viktor Orban encouraged the president to view Ukraine negatively. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: “This is a great honor for us, to be honest, that we were portrayed as a central European country which can change the position of the president of the United States,” Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto joked in an interview with the Washington Examiner on the sidelines of the NATO Leaders’ Meeting. “It can be taken as an honor. Well, I’m afraid it has distance from reality, to be honest.” Orban emerged as an unlikely player in the Ukraine impeachment controversy in October, when a senior State Department official testified that the Hungarian leader had contributed to Trump’s distaste for Ukraine. George Kent, one of the State Department’s top officials for Europe, told lawmakers that Orban echoed Russian President Vladimir Putin in portraying Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky as in a “thrall” of corruption. “He’s not that credible in this regard,” Szijjarto said of Kent, whom he noted did not attend Orban’s May 13 meeting with Trump. “Simply because he was not there. I was there, he was not there.” “Viktor Orban’s beef with Ukraine is derived in part [from] his vision, in my opinion, of a greater Hungary. This issue of greater Hungary is at the top of Orban’s agenda. And so he has picked this particular issue and, for instance, blocked all meetings in NATO with Ukraine at the ministerial level or above because of this particular issue. So, his animus towards Ukraine is well-known, documented, and has lasted now two years,” Kent continued. Kent then went on to say in his testimony that the Hungarian…
