Invading Caravan

President Trump ordered “roughly 5,800 troops” to the Mexican border. And he says “they have built a very beautiful fence.” But the real mission: stop a Central American immigrant invasion force. The invading caravan crossed Mexico with Patton Third Army-like speed. And now they’re advancing toward American lines outside Tijuana. So stay tuned.

Mark Penn is a pollster and analyst. He was the chief strategist for both Bill and Hillary’s presidential campaigns. NY Magazine calls him a Trump loving “sleaze ball.”

Here’s why: He recently made the point  that Trump makes promises and mostly keeps them. But Democrats only agenda is to impeach Trump.

The president ordered the release of FBI files related to the 2017 application for a FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page.

So, here’s how three different news outlets played the story:

NPR – Trump Orders Declassification Of FBI Documents Sought By House Republicans

New York PostTrump says order to release FBI files may be ‘crowning achievement’

CNN – Trump inflames war on Justice Dept. by declassifying Russia docs

 

President’s Paranoia

Paranoia strikes deep in the Trump White House. But maybe there really is something resembling a deep state embedded in the government.

It appears we now have a Deep Throat of the Deep State. An anonymous op-ed writer in the NYT claims he leads a cabal within in the administration that thwarts Trump’s worst impulses. Or, put another way, they thwart the will of the voters who elected him.

Republican Senator Ben Sasse pondered the president’s paranoia on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, “I don’t understand the morality of why anyone would write the piece, because it seems pretty obvious to me that what it’s going to do is foster more paranoia.”

Campaign Spending Laws Apply Equally

After busting Trump fixer Michael Cohen for violating campaign spending laws, U.S. attorney Robert Khuzami bragged “we are a nation of laws, with one set of rules that applies equally to everyone.”

Kimberly Strassel at the WSJ doesn’t buy it:

If there is only “one set of rules,” where is Mr. Mueller’s referral of a case against Hillary for America? Federal law requires campaigns to disclose the recipient and purpose of any payments. The Clinton campaign paid Fusion GPS to compile a dossier against Mr. Trump, a document that became the basis of the Russia narrative Mr. Mueller now investigates. But the campaign funneled the money to law firm Perkins Coie, which in turn paid Fusion. The campaign falsely described the money as payment for “legal services.” The Democratic National Committee did the same. A Perkins Coie spokesperson has claimed that neither the Clinton campaign nor the DNC was aware that Fusion GPS had been hired to conduct the research, and maybe so. But a lot of lawyers here seemed to have been ignoring a clear statute, presumably with the intent of influencing an election.
