Coffee and Today’s Headlines
Good morning. Things are settling down as we try to return to normal, although, “normal” is a relative term with the Trump administration.
Election meddling and hacking continues to be a major issue. Yesterday, it was reported Facebook shut down 652 pages that were tied into Iran and Russia. Instagram shut down numerous profiles as well, as did Twitter.
The DNC (Democratic National Committee) also had hacking attempts. It will get worse before it gets better.
Omarosa Manigault Newman
Omarosa has been quiet for a few days, probably waiting for the dust to settle with the media frenzy of Paul Manafort found guilty on eight charges and Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former attorney pleading guilty to campaign fraud violations
Omarosa, besides having hundreds of tapes, claims to have videos as well, and she released one of Cohen boarding a plane during the 2016 Presidential Campaign. Not sure what the video proves at this point, but it is probably just a teaser of what is surely more to come.
Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh
Kavanaugh becoming the next Justice of the Supreme Court is hitting a snag. Democrats continue to push against meeting with Kavanaugh since President Trump is considered an unindicted co-conspirator due to Michael Cohen’s plea in open court earlier during the week where he implicated the President.
The Tariff War Goes Up a Notch
President Trump issued another twenty-five percent on Chinese tariffs, a total of two hundred seventy-nine more products. Chinese responded with a twenty-five percent tariff of their own.
There can’t be a news cycle without the President making another outlandish claim, lie, or just plain stupid statement. The latest: the President says flipping should be illegal. We’ll ignore his lack of legal training, ignorance, and whistleblower statutes.
Have a good day everyone.
