    Another unethical, corrupt, money-loving, self-serving Republican is in trouble with the law. What a surprise!

    Republican Senator Richard Burr is stepping down Friday as chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. The North Carolina Senator's move comes a day after the FBI seized his cellphone in a probe of his stock sales during the early weeks of the coronavirus pandemic. The Justice Department is investigating whether Burr broke the law with a well-timed sale of stocks before the coronavirus caused markets to plummet,

    King Donald the First today made this idiotic tweet: "Michigan sends absentee ballots to 7.7 million people ahead of Primaries and the General Election. This was done illegally and without authorization by a rogue Secretary of State. I will ask to hold up funding to Michigan if they want to go down this Voter Fraud path!"

    Where to begin? First, the state sent out applications for absentee ballots, not the ballots themselves. Second, the Secretary of State is not "rogue." Third, the move is not "illegal." Fourth, voting by absentee ballot is not "voter fraud." By the way, King Donald voted by absentee ballot in Florida. King Donald made similar accusations and threats against Nevada. He doesn't care if millions of Americans risk exposure to the COVID-19 virus when they go to the polls in November. He mistakenly believes vote-by-mail favors Democrats over Republicans. Actually, vote-by-mail doesn't favor either party. Regardless, King Donald has decreed that he will punish Michigan and Nevada for wanting to ensure everyone can vote safely. Can he do that? Of course he can. He's the King! His power is absolute. Senate Republicans make sure of that.

    King Donald the First withheld Congressionally-approved military aid from Ukraine and dangled it as a bribe in an effort to persuade President Volodymyr Zelensky to dig up dirt Joe and Hunter Biden. Trump's actions led to his impeachment. Now he and all his blindly loyal lackeys in Congress are determined to dig up dirt on their own. Trump in 2020 is doing the same thing he did in 2016: Attack, accuse, slander and denigrate his opponent. It's nasty – but totally in character for King Donald.

    GOP escalating probes of Bidens, Obama aides before election
    Newsmax, May 21 2020 11:46 AM

    President Donald Trump's allies in the House and Senate are ramping up investigations aimed at Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and some of his former Obama administration colleagues that are likely to reach a crescendo in the middle of the election campaign. Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham tgoday set up a vote following the Memorial Day recess to give him sweeping authority to subpoena numerous former Obama-era officials, including former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch as well as ex-FBI director James Comey, as part of his panel's review of the origins of the investigation into Russian election interference and the Trump campaign's role. The line of inquiry is fully embraced by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who is in the middle of a battle to save his Republican majority in the November election.

    The stepped-up GOP investigations are a flipped script from earlier in the year, when Republicans and the White House accused Democrats of being obsessed with impeaching the President and distracting the country from the growing coronavirus pandemic. Trump has vowed that the origins of the Russia investigation will figure prominently in the election contest between him and Biden. The president long has promoted a conspiracy theory that the Obama administration, in which Biden served as vice president, and anti-Trump factions within the intelligence agencies and the Justice Department improperly tried to undermine his election campaign in 2016.

    Trump also plans to use Biden's involvement with Ukraine at the same time his son Hunter Biden served on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian energy company, as a campaign issue. That would bring the issue full circle. The House impeachment investigation was triggered by the President’s attempt to prod Ukraine's president into investigating whether Biden, as vice president, put pressure on Ukraine to help Burisma.
