    Republicans in Congress continue to ignore Donald Trump's abuse of women, history of sexual harassment, extramarital affairs and hush-money payments. Let's see if they similarly ignore Herman Cain's history of groping and sexual harassment, 13-year extramarital affair and settlements that include confidentiality agreements. Calling him a "truly outstanding individual," Trump has nominated Cain for a position on the Federal Reserve board of governors. Trump also supported sexual abuser/harasser Brett Kavanaugh. These sexually abusive Republicans certainly stick together! Why would any self-respecting woman want to vote for a Republican?

    Herman Cain opens a new #MeToo minefield for Republicans

    Donald Trump lied when he said he would release his tax returns. He also lied when he said he was being audited. For 12 consecutive years, Donald? Really? Now he's hired attorneys who will try to ensure we never see his tax returns. What is he hiding?

    Mick Mulvaney says Democrats will 'never' obtain Trump's tax returns

    Nunes and the House Intelligence Committee have been working on these referrals for more than two years -- and more referrals could be coming. Nunes calls these Trump associates "Watergate wannabes" but I think that's giving them too much credit.

    Donald Trump said he didn't know Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal. He was lying. Then he said he didn't have affairs with them. He was lying. Then he said he knew nothing about hush money payments. He was lying. Then he said Michael Cohen was not his attorney. He was lying. Federal investigators have been learning the truth – and there could soon be indictments of Trump associates and perhaps Trump himself.

    Some day we might have a female President. Some day a majority of Congressional members might be female. Then things will be different. But as long as we have a male President and a male-dominated Congress, Democrats and Republicans will continue to fight like bullies on an elementary school playground.

    She also said her late husband would be upset by the lack of civility and bipartisanship that continues to plague Washington.

    McCallion's book Treason & Democracy, which will be published April 15 by HHI Media, details Russia's efforts to get Trump elected and reveals Trump's life history, his ties to Russia, his money laundering and his dealings with Russian agents and oligarchs. Calling Trump a traitor for aiding and abetting Russian interests, McCallion says there is more than enough public evidence for Trump to be prosecuted and even indicted. I expect all the Republicans will denounce the book and the author and maintain their blindly loyal devotion to, and worship of, the orange-skinned Emperor. The Pied Piper has all the little rats totally conned.

    Former federal prosecutor Kenneth McCallion: Trump is 'financially compromised' by Russia. Mueller didn't investigate but Congress must.

    Deutsche Bank officials said they will cooperate with the investigation as two House committees seek to learn why Deutsche Bank loaned more than $2 billion to Trump when no other banks would. The bank has been hit with a series of fines, coincidentally totaling more than $2 billion. That includes a $600 million fine for money laundering. Did the money loaned to Trump come from Russia? Was Deutsche Bank making the loans on behalf of VTB Bank or some other Russian entity? Subpoenas have also been issued to Chase, Citibank and Bank Of America and there will likely be more.

    Whether intentional or unintentional, Donald Trump certainly makes a lot of decisions that wind up benefitting his BFF Vladimir:

    Denouncing Trump's lying, bullying, insults, erraticism, reckless spending and disregard for the environment, Andy McKean says he can no longer support his party's "standard bearer." After 35 years as a Republican, he's switching to the Democratic party. Join the crowd, Andy!

    Emperor Trump, in true dictatorial fashion, seeks to silence and/or punish his rivals and his critics. His chief "rival" is Hillary Clinton. Remember when Donald "grab-'em-by-the-pussy" Trump bragged, "Nobody has more respect for women than I do"? And then he would lead crowds in chants of "Lock her up! Lock her up!"

    Mueller report details Trump's fixation on using law enforcement to target a rival
