President Trump demanded that an inquiry be done on the FBI. He claimed that the Obama Administration sent a spy to infiltrate his 2016 political campaign.

If this was found to be true this could open up anther can of worms creating more confusion. What it possibly won’t do though is vindicate Trump of Russian collusion or interference.

Trump’s legal team could argue that the evidence given was false and made up. However there were many other avenues tested that showed some signs that something fishy took place, the dots however needed connecting.

It was possible that even if Trump wasn’t directly connected but those closest to him were.

That evidence in and of itself could raise red flags for him and his administration.

Trump was truly outraged and attacked the organization with tweet after tweet.

Tweet Storm

“I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes – and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!” Trump wrote.

Trump was known for his regular tweets, many of them being controversial. It was evident that Trump was possibly searching for a way to avoid an interview with Robert Mueller and bring the probe to a close.

Trump tweeted “Things are really getting ridiculous. The Failing and Crooked (but not as Crooked as Hillary Clinton) @nytimes has done a long & boring story indicating that the World’s most expensive Witch Hunt has found nothing on Russia & me so now they are looking at the rest of the World!”

Analysts indicated that Trump made false accusation in many of his tweets. It was clear there were persons on his side and others against him.

Deadline?

Trump’s lawyer Rudolph Giuliani said that Mueller would have the probe completed by September 1, 2018.

He said that during talks this was made clear to the legal team as they discussed a possible interview with Mueller.

Mueller’s office however declined to give any comments regarding the claim.

Trump’s lawyers have been trying for a long time to see the inquiry closed. Ty Cobb who once represented Trump had claimed the end of December 2017, but that never happened.

“You don’t want another repeat of the 2016 election where you get contrary reports at the end and you don’t know how it affected the election,” Mr. Giuliani said.

“We want the concentration of this to be on Comey versus the president’s credibility, and I think we win that and people get that,” Mr. Giuliani added.

There was clearly much at stake and it seemed that Giuliani was taking a gamble. It could work in Trump’s favor or it could backfire, but only time would tell.

The long awaited interview between Robert Mueller and Donald Trump may never happen. However it wasn’t clear what may become of such an opportunity.

Robert Mueller wanted to interview the President but the only thing that had transpired so far was back and forth communication.

Trump was told by some of his lawyers, both former and present not to do the interview. Yet others thought he should do it, but on certain terms.

Some believed that Trump could be subpoenaed if he refused to co-operate. However no such intent had been shown by Mueller up to this point.

Don’t Meet

Joe diGenova served as U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia during Ronald Reagan’s Presidency.

He said that “under no circumstance should the President agree to an interview with Mueller.”

“He is under no obligation to do so and, given the indications of bad faith by the Mueller group … it would be a mistake to believe a thing they would offer by way of assurances,” he added.

Katy Harriger believed that Mueller may already have all that he needed to launch an attack on the President or those charged.

“What we don’t know is what they have. For the people they’ve indicted so far, they clearly didn’t need the President’s testimony,” she said. “If this subpoena is issued, and if the president refuses to comply, you likely have a court battle which would raise the stakes and put everything on hold while it plays out.”

Should Meet

On the other side of the analogy was those who thought meeting would have a favorable outcome.

Joyce White Vance made reference to Trump possibly facing obstruction of justice charges.

She said “in some ways, it is a courtesy you extend to a defendant: the opportunity to talk to prosecutors, especially on a crime so heavily dependent upon intent.”

“Although this has been portrayed as a perjury trap or aggressive prosecution tactics, for an innocent person this is an opportunity to short-circuit this. But that is not the way the Trump camp has viewed this,” Vance added.

Renato Mariotti, a former federal prosecutor felt doing the interview would show some level of innocence.

“You would always want, if you’re able to, to get an interview, because it is difficult to prove crimes beyond a reasonable doubt – much more difficult than most laypeople realize” she said.

There were varying arguments on if Trump should or shouldn’t do the interview. This was all just a drawn out process from the looks of it.

However some decision needed to be made so that there could be some clarity on the issue.

The meeting with North Korea and The U.S. had stolen the media outlets lately. The Russian probe had quieted down from its usual controversial state.

It however was likely to get heated again after the recent revelation of an FBI informant infiltrating Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Trump pressed for the release of the person who gave information to the FBI regarding what transpired during that time.

His son however was facing his own issues regarding his father winning the election.

It was said that he met with a small group of men who promised that they could win the election for him.

Election Ties

It was reported that meeting was arranged by Erik Prince for the three men to meet with Trump Jr.

Prince was one of the three involved in the meeting, a Republican donor which a controversial Middle East history.

Apparently an emissary named George Nader came on behalf of two Arab Princes. He said the two men were eager to help Donald Trump win the election.

An Israeli social media specialist named Joel Zamel offered his specialty which was in social media. He offered to manipulate the election via social media and had a proposal ready to go.

It was not clear if the proposal was ever implemented. Nader however was welcomed by Trump and his allies.

It was reported that Nader paid Zamel a large amount of money after Trump won the election.

Alan Futerfas said “prior to the 2016 election, Donald Trump Jr. recalls a meeting with Erik Prince, George Nader and another individual who may be Joel Zamel. They pitched Mr. Trump Jr. on a social media platform or marketing strategy. He was not interested and that was the end of it.”

Futerfas, an attorney of Donald Trump Jr. spoke about the meeting, citing the lack of interest by his client.

Big Deal

Trump thought it was a big deal regarding the revelation of an informant.

He believed that the DOJ should release the documents even suggested the informant name be released.

Trump tweeted, “if the FBI or DOJ was infiltrating a campaign for the benefit of another campaign, that is a really big deal. Only the release or review of documents that the House Intelligence Committee (also, Senate Judiciary) is asking for can give the conclusive answers. Drain the Swamp!”

It was evident that anything favorable would be well received but whatever contradicted would be called trash or fake.

It was reported that the informant wasn’t planted to spy on anyone. The person however saw it fit to divulge information to the FBI.

Recent reports by the White House claimed that it was investigating leaks within and without. It was said that someone in the administration taped conversations with the President to impress friends.

It was also claimed that a statement by one of his own about John McCain was leaked.

Trump was also pushing investigations about a source who gave information to the FBI regarding his Presidential campaign.

Trump had long been against the leaking of information and these new developments had angered him.

The biggest focus by Trump was the source that infiltrated his campaign. In an effort to cripple the Russian probe he wanted to know who the informant was and what he gave the FBI.

The Source

The DOJ said that exposing the informant could put lives in danger. It also cited that doing so could hamper operations by the U.S. Government.

A news report claimed that there was an informant assisting with the Russian probe, a report that angered Trump.

“Wow, word seems to be coming out that the Obama FBI ‘SPIED ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WITH AN EMBEDDED INFORMANT,’ ” Trump tweeted. He added, “If so, this is bigger than Watergate!”

Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani believed there was a conspiracy ongoing in the DOJ.

“The prior Government did it, but the present Government, for some reason I can’t figure out, is covering it up,” Giuliani said, adding that confirmation of an informant could render the Mueller investigation “completely illegitimate.”

Inside Leakage

Trump threatened to fire anyone who was found to have leaked information on White House proceedings

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that staff had been fired for leaking information.

No names were given but it was made evident that the White House won’t take leakers likely.

“The President has to have advisers around him who can have open, candid discussions and then not read about him the next day in the newspapers or watch them on television,” John Bolton said.

Bolton, the National Security Adviser spoke about the recent revelation of firing leakers.

“When I worked for Mr. Trump, I worked under the maxim that he liked leaks. I never cleared them ahead of time, but I would tell him later so he’d have deniability,” said Sam Nunberg.

Nunberg once worked for the President as a campaign official.

“Sometimes he loved them, sometimes he screamed about them. But he never told me to stop. He loves the media, loves being talked about, he loves how a leak gets his name in the news,” he added.

The White House had decided to make the gathering for meetings smaller. The intent was to keep those who be divulging information to a low or non existent.

This was a sign that all wasn’t well at the White House. Something Trump had denounced as untrue.

The news remained constantly filled with something new from the American President. He was constantly saying or doing something controversial.

The latest controversy surrounded immigrants and ICE, a law enforcement agency who tackle immigration related issues.

A transcript was released where Trump called immigrants animals, though it wasn’t clear if he meant a particular group or immigrants in general.

Trump was expecting to still meet with Kim Jong-un despite threats to pull out of talks.

It was also announced that the U.S. demanded that North Korea ship it weapons to the U.S.

Strange Demand

The U.S. Government was certainly requesting something strange. At this point nothing had been accomplished between the two leaders.

All that was on the table were promises and those could be cancelled at any moment. So for America to make such demands at such a critical stage was surprising to say the least.

Nevertheless if North Korea gave into such demands one would have to assume that Trump knows what he is doing.

Trump still expected to meet with Kim despite threats of pulling out so it was just a waiting game to see how this all pans out.

When asked about the meeting Sarah Sanders said Trump was ready.

“If they want to meet, we’ll be ready and if they don’t, that’s OK too,” Sanders said.

She added: “I haven’t seen that that’s a specific thing. I know that that comment was made. There’s not a cookie-cutter model on how this would work. This is the President Trump model. He’s going to run this the way he sees fit. We’re 100% confident, as we’ve said many times before, as I’m sure you’re all aware, he’s the best negotiator and we’re very confident on that front.”

Name Calling

“We have people coming into the country — or trying to come in, we’re stopping a lot of them — but we’re taking people out of the country, you wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals,” Trump said.

Since taking office Trump was adamant about sending immigrants from the U.S. He was intent on carrying out that promise and put measures in place to do so.

However he was meeting some resistance and this was making him angry. This name calling wasn’t first time for Trump, he had done similar things in the past.

He also tried reaching out to the very people he was adamant on deporting.

Trump said, “I can tell you this, and I say this to DACA recipients, that the Republicans are with you. They want to get your situation taken care of. The Democrats fought us. But I do want the Hispanic community to know and DACA recipients to know that Republicans are much more on your side than the Democrats, who are using you for their own purposes.”

Trump had been very controversial in his dealing with immigrants. Yet he tried to make the Republican Party look good in the eyes of those he was trying to deport.

It was evident that immigrants were safe due to rulings from the Supreme Court. So to hear the President talk this way was certainly surprising.

The U.S.A. and South Korea had started a series of drills in the Korean Peninsula. The exercise was part of an annual activity between the two Nations.

The activity prompted North Korea to threaten a pullout from talks in Singapore. These talks were the most anticipated of the century between America and North Korea.

Kim Jong-un was considered a leader not to be trifled with but somehow that didn’t mean anything to Trump and Moon Jae-in.

The men remained steadfast in their plans to continue all exercises for the next two weeks.

North Korea said they would be closely monitoring all activity and felt the allies could be planning an attack on his Country.

Reasons For Drill

The two men said there was a need for the military practice. It was also said that North Korea were known for pulling out of deals at the last minute or provoking situations.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert cited that the U.S. believed that North Korea understood that Washington needed to continue its annual drills. She said that they heard nothing to the contrary from Pyongyang.

“We will continue to go ahead and plan the meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un,” Nauert said.

“The defensive nature of these combined exercises has been clear for many decades and has not changed,” said Army Col. Rob Manning.

The U.S. made it clear that this was a norm and was in no way a threat to the upcoming summit. For them it was about being in a state of readiness.

This certainly meant that Trump wasn’t comfortable and felt that Kim couldn’t be trusted.

North Korea Tense

Kim wasn’t pleased to say the least according to reports. It was somewhat surprising since Nauert said they received nothing from Pyongyang regarding stopping its military exercises.

“We will appropriately respond to the Trump administration if it approaches the North Korea-U.S. summit meeting with a truthful intent to improve relations,” Kim said.

“But we are no longer interested in a negotiation that will be all about driving us into a corner and making a one-sided demand for us to give up our nukes.”

He added, “and this would force us to reconsider whether we would accept the North Korea-U.S. summit meeting.”

It was clear such a statement shouldn’t be taken lightly and Kim could possibly withdraw from the summit.

If he did it would be Trump and Moon’s fault. Since a hold off from doing such drills would benefit their agenda.

Such an effort towards the North Koreans should be well thought out and planned. It was clear that this one wasn’t well thought out as it could cause Kim to change his mind.

“The United States must carefully contemplate the fate of the planned North Korea-U.S. summit amid the provocative military ruckus that it’s causing with South Korean authorities,” the North said. “We’ll keenly monitor how the United States and South Korean authorities will react.”

It was recently felt that Trump may have had a trump card tucked away nicely somewhere. If this was even possible the President seemed to have a knack for throwing his hand.

After the announcement of meeting in Singapore and the possible denuclearization by North Korea, Trump may have erred.

It was common sense that if you want someone to stop doing something that you should be wise in how you do it, if at all.

Trump wanted North Korea to stop its nuclear program without giving up its own. Yet both the U.S. and South Korea were busy conducting drills in the Korean Peninsula.

A Test?

One could only wonder what would drive these two leaders to think that such a move would not create concern for the North Koreans.

What was required of Kim was a big deal, since they haven’t given in to anything that was asked of them for decades.

Now that they were willing to have talks and put away their program a stunt like this is pulled?

Was it at all possible this was to see how Kim would react? Or did the two men not fully calculate the response that such an exercise would generate?

Either way whatever the intent, Kim wasn’t taking it likely and if the exercise wasn’t cancelled, he would no longer be attending the summit.

Back Step

If Kim pulled out of the summit it would be lots of hard work down the drain. It was possible that much work was done unseen to the public that lead to the North Korean leader willing to denuclearize in the first place.

Unless he had some super sinister plan unknown to the rest of the World it was a big change for the Koreans.

So it would be considered a waste to let such an opportunity pass by and place the two Nations right back where they started.

Instead of progress it would be a big step backward, in a direction that could take many more years o recover.

It was evident that more than just the summit would be scrapped but the plan to denuclearize.

So if the South Korean leader and Trump want to see the relations between the three Countries progress then it would be wise to withhold from any further military exercises.

High level talks between Pyongyang and Seoul due for Wednesday 16th May 2018 were also cancelled. A sign that North Korea was not to be tampered with and any effort to work with them shouldn’t be taken lightly.

President Trump had announced that he would be moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

An announcement that received both praise and ridicule from all ends of the spectrum because it could create chaos.

That day had finally come and the facility used was a building that was renovated. The building which used to host consular offices received upgrades to make it more suitable for its new purpose.

It was reported that a new building would be eventually built to house the embassy’s staff.

The reality of the embassy in Jerusalem was considered monumental for Evangelicals who backed Trump.

They believed there was significance to the move, especially the announcement of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

This was also well pleasing to Israelis who have been in confrontation for many years with Palestine over land they claimed were given them by God.

New Set Up

“Initially, the interim embassy in Arnona will contain office space for the Ambassador and a small staff,” a US official.

“The Ambassador will continue to divide his time between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem during the initial phases of the embassy move, as this is a multi-year process,” he continued.

It was reported that around $400,000 was spent on upgrades and more was expected to be spent.

There will be a roundabout adjacent to the new embassy and Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat said it would be called “Trump Square.”

“Naming this square in honor of the president is our way of showing our love and respect for the president and the American people,” he said.

Resistance

The decision to move came with much resistance. When Trump first announced his plans it created u rest in Jerusalem and surrounding areas.

Senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat called on Diplomats to boycott the inauguration. He asked “civil society organizations, and religious authorities to boycott the inauguration.”

It was possible that the embassy’s presence could create turmoil, the city and its outskirts were known for violence.

Other leaders were concerned about the move and felt it was a bad idea.

Some see the move as a prophetic fulfillment based on the bible. Others saw it as a means of creating more tension in the already troubled area.

Notwithstanding Israel and Iran could find themselves in a war that could escalate due t a decision by Trump.

Trump had made up his mind about the transfer and that was evident.

There are great expectations about this new development but how it will all play out was beyond anyone’s comprehension.

President Trump sought to keep his head high amid growing tensions between Russia and itself. He showered Kim Jong-un with praise as he pondered what would become of the trade between Iran and China.

Trump thanked the North Korean leader who said that he would be shutting down its test site later this month.

This would be a monumental moment for Trump who could now face a crisis with Iran. Since pulling away from the deal, the Iranians said they would be restarting their nuclear program.

He called the move “a very smart and gracious gesture.”

Trump also talked about lowering prices on prescription drugs to help ease the pharmaceutical industry.

Drug Ease

Trump had at one point accuse the pharmaceutical industry of getting away with murder.

He however had changed his view and was now lowering the prices on prescription drugs.

Trump said his announcement was the “most sweeping action in history to lower the price of prescription drugs for the American people.”

He made the announcement from the Rose Garden at the White House, but the plan was considered nothing to shout about.

“There are some things in this set of proposals that can move us in the direction of lower prices for some people,” said David Mitchell. “At the same time, it is not clear at all how they are going to lower list prices.”

Mitchell, , founder of Patients for Affordable Drugs thought it was good but was uncertain how Trump would go about this.

Denuclearization Plan

“North Korea has announced that they will dismantle Nuclear Test Site this month, ahead of the big Summit Meeting on June 12th,” Trump tweeted. “Thank you, a very smart and gracious gesture!”

The hope was that the plant would be closed before the June 12th summit in Singapore.

It was announced that the test site should be closed during May 23 to 25, 2019.

Another plan was to make travel through its air space a little easier by removing some restrictions.

Trump believed that what was promised should take place especially since Kim released three prisoners as a sign of good faith.

Notwithstanding, this wasn’t the first time that prisoners were released from North Korea. This also took place during the Obama Administration.

Trump however had done more than any other President before him. The planned summit and decision by Kim to denuclearize was a big step, one that remained unprecedented.

The President of America was doing well for himself regarding International Diplomacy in some places.

He however was having a more difficult time in other places.

It was becoming evident that some of the Countries with very strong armies and nuclear ability were becoming allies.

Such events were certainly a reason for Trump to sit up and pay attention. He was bragging about his accomplishments in regards to North Korea.

On the other hand China, Russia and Iran could pose a problem for the U.S.

It was also possible that Iran and Israel would face off in a war, now that Trump pulled out of the Iran deal.

Contention

It was becoming clearer that a crisis could be brewing despite small steps of progress by Trump.

The U.S. Army recently put a command back on the waters that was stopped several years ago. It was done in an effort to monitor increased activity by the Russian Government.

It was believed this move was one more focused on China and Russia, who have shown signs of solidarity.

American and Russian jets have crossed paths on some occasions. One of the latest incidents was the intercepting of two Russian bombers by two American fighter jets.

It was claimed that the bombers flew into an Air Defense Identification Zone located about 200 miles off Alaska’s west coast.

This was becoming a common occurrence and Trump wasn’t taking it lightly.

New Allies?

Trump was also facing issues from China as they were seemingly working with the Iranian Government.

China recently launched a new freight train connection with Iran. It was said the train could reach Iran in about 2 weeks.

America had placed sanctions on Iran after it pulled out of the deal regarding no development of building nuclear weapons.

China showed however that they won’t be controlled by no one as they did trade with Iran.

The train reportedly carried tons of sunflower seeds to Iran.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson commented on its trade plans with Iran.

“We will continue with our normal and transparent practical cooperation with Iran on the basis of not violating our international obligations,” he said.

Trump could find the going tough as China doesn’t seemed intent to stop trading with Iran.

This could be seen at present as a sign that he doesn’t hold all the cards at this point.

He would definitely find the going tough until he can garner better relations between China and Russia, if that was possible.

President Trump’s agenda had some high points but it also had some low ones. A big breakthrough for the President was with the upcoming North Korea summit.

It was announced that the location was Singapore and would be held on June 12, 2019. Trump was expecting Kim Jong-un to denuclearize and hoped the meeting would be fruitful.

However he had withdrawn from the nuclear pact between Iran and a few other Countries. This move was seen as a mistake and many felt it would give Iran an opportunity to make more weapons or buy them.

Most worrying was the fact that shortly after the U.S. withdrew from the deal, Iran fire upon Israel.

Israel retaliated by firing back on Iran, which now could escalate into a war.

Sanctions

The United States of America imposed sanctions on Iran days after the attacks. The Treasury Dept. cited that there were some individuals and companies supporting Iran.

“The Iranian regime and its central bank have abused access to entities in the UAE to acquire U.S. dollars to fund the IRGC-QF’s malign activities, including to fund and arm its regional proxy groups, by concealing the purpose for which the U.S. dollars were acquired,” U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said.

It was unclear if Trump had a plan by leaving the deal and helping to add fuel to an already tense Middle East.

If Trump could find a way to get through to Kim, maybe he had a way of getting through to Iran.

However until such an event became evident it was worrisome to say the least.

Singapore Summit

The summit scheduled for next month was expected to be unprecedented. It was the first time that the two Nations would meet to discuss international affairs together.

“The highly anticipated meeting between Kim Jong Un and myself will take place in Singapore on June 12th. We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!” Trump wrote.

The U.S. President hoped that the summit would prove to be the change needed between the two Countries and bring about peace.

“I think we have a very good chance of doing something very meaningful,” Trump said. “My proudest achievement will be – this is part of it – when we denuclearize that entire peninsula.”

The administration made it clear that they wouldn’t be taking the summit likely.

“We’re not under any illusions about who these people are,” National Security Council official Victoria Coates told reporters. “We know who we’re dealing with here. But we got up front our people home rather than that having been an afterthought.”

Grenell’s Slip

His administration wasn’t without fault as it created ripples in Germany. An U.S. Ambassador recently chosen by Trump offended Germans by what he said.

This didn’t help the fact that Germany was disappointed that the U.S. pulled out of the Iran deal of which they are a part.

Richard Grenell tweeted “German companies doing business in Iran should wind down operations immediately.”

“It’s not my task to teach people about the fine art of diplomacy, especially not the U.S. ambassador. But he does appear to need some tutoring,” said Andrea Nahles.

Nahles, the leader of Germany’s Social Democratic party wasn’t pleased by the statement.

“This man was accredited as ambassador only yesterday. To give German businesses such orders … that’s just not how you can treat your allies,” Jean Asselborn said.

Asselborn, Luxemburg’s Foreign Minister said called Grenell’s action impertinent.

The President of America had to deal with some ongoing issues but he also had some high points. One of those was the ability to have Korean Americans freed from North Korea.

Another high point would be the meeting between Kim Jong-un and himself. This was one of the most anticipated meetings of the century, especially since these men were at each other’s throat just a few months ago.

Now the two men were willing to put all that aside and cooperate on a deal that would see North Korea denuclearize.

It was believed that the pullout from Iran could create a problem, but nothing related to that surfaced.

It was reported that the leaders could meet in Singapore.

Meeting On

The meeting was apparently due to happen now since the men were released as a good gesture between the two Countries.

This now paved the way for a meeting between the two men as they planned the location and date.

Trump shared his joy through twitter as he made it known that the men were on their way to the U.S.

“I am pleased to inform you that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in the air and on his way back from North Korea with the 3 wonderful gentlemen that everyone is looking so forward to meeting. They seem to be in good health. Also, good meeting with Kim Jong Un. Date & Place set, Trump tweeted.

His joy was evident in a second tweet. He wrote,” Secretary Pompeo and his “guests” will be landing at Andrews Air Force Base at 2:00 A.M. in the morning. I will be there to greet them. Very exciting!”

The Return

“We have been asking for the release of these detainees for … 17 months,” Mike Pompeo said. “We’ll talk about it again today. I think it’d be a great gesture if they would choose to do so.”

Trump kept his word and was there to meet the men as they arrived in America.

“This is a special night for these three really great people,” Trump told reporters who were present.

Trump said, “we’re starting off on a new footing,” as he discussed his new relationship with the North Koreans.

The names three men were Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim.

“We would like to express our deep appreciation to the United States Government, President Trump, Secretary Pompeo, and the people of the United States for bringing us home,” they said. “We thank God, and all our families and friends who prayed for us and for our return. God Bless America, the greatest nation in the world.”

President Trump recently pulled out of the Iran deal agreement calling it a one sided affair. He received support from some colleagues but also received rebuttal about the decision.

France’s President Emmanuel Macron felt that Trump should remain in the deal. He had met with Trump Just days prior to the announcement in the U.S.

Macron denounced Trump’s decision as well as other leaders on the World scene. He however said the deal wasn’t dead despite Trump pulling out.

It was believed it was bad move by the President as it was felt it gave Iran more opportunity to build dangerous bombs.

Ironically enough it had come at a time when ties between Kim and China’s President Xi Jinping were getting closer.

During that time he had visited the Chinese President and did something his father had never done.

He went by plane, which signaled a drastic change in the mindset of Kim who recently crossed the border to visit the South Korean leader.

Transformation

It was visually clear that Kim Jong-un was changing. If this was an act remained unclear but he certainly moved away from what we knew to be his norm.

He had said that he would denuclearize and only time would tell if he will.

His efforts to reach out to those close around him was apparently a big part of his change.

Kim had said that the North and South was one people and now he was definitely getting closer to China in more ways than one. The people of China could also fall under the same umbrella it was possible that they were the one and same people as well.

It was believed that Trump pulling out could reflect badly on Kim’s decision to denuclearize.

This could be seen as a sign that whenever the Presidency changed that the outlook on agreements would as well.

This was happening quite a lot since Trump took office. On many occasions he reversed many agreements that the Obama Administration had made calling them mistakes.

Doubtful

The decision by Trump created a rift among his colleagues who were divided about it’s effect.

“With this decision President Trump is risking U.S. national security, recklessly upending foundational partnerships with key U.S. allies in Europe and gambling with Israel’s security,” Robert Menendez said. “Today’s withdrawal from the (Iran deal) makes it more likely Iran will restart its nuclear weapons program in the future.”

“By dividing our allies … you’re making it harder to go after Hezbollah, Charles Schumer said. You’re making it harder to go after Iranian activities that are really dangerous, and you’re probably making it harder to come to a North Korea deal.”

It was reported that many Republicans praised Trump’s move but those against it seemed more verbal.

Rudy Giuliani had created for himself quite an audience. This group comprised of those looking on and those who are responsive to his every claim.

His time with the media was in hope of throwing off the Russian probe, but so far that hasn’t materialized.

It was now possible that Trump might be rethinking his lawyer’s strategy and stop him from having interviews on television.

Giuliani had said many things and may have said too much in the process. Some of what he declared created scrutiny towards Trump’s liability.

A request was made by Trump’s legal team to answer questions in writing. Robert Mueller turned down that proposal and wanted an interview in person.

No Written Statement

The idea of doing a reply to Mueller’s questions by letter was quickly dismissed. There was only one way to do this and that was the same way everyone else did it.

Giuliani had recently suggested that Trump could ignore a subpoena from Mueller because he was the President of the United States of America.

This suggestion was swiftly blasted by many experts who said that wasn’t true.

He also said that it would take some time for him to come up to speed with what was ongoing in the investigations.

So until that time no decision could be made in regards to Trump meeting with Mueller.

Giuliani also said that they are in constant communication with Mueller and his team.

He also suggested that it was better to wait until after the North Korean Summit so he could readily prepare Trump.

To Media Or Not?

Giuliani claimed that Trump had his back in regards to his attempts to justify him before the Nation on TV.

“We have to speak out now, we have no other remedy,” Giuliani, a former New York mayor, said Monday in an interview. “The President is being harmed in his ability to conduct the business of his Presidency.”

Speaking in regards to the length of time the inquiry had been going on he felt it was time it came to a close.

“We will no longer be a punching bag for the liberal media, for people who created crimes in their own fantastical mind and out of anger they lost the election,” he said. “We are at the point where we are saying: ‘Let’s get to the end. We are coming up on the one-year anniversary. You have nothing.’”

Others in Trump’s Administration sang a different song to Giuliani. It was clear that Trump thought it best that he no longer do anymore interviews.

“He speaks for himself and not on behalf of the administration on foreign policy,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said.

It was reported that the interview Giuliani had with Sean Hannity caused him to grimace as he watched the video on several occasions.

His lawyer was causing him concern and it was possible that Trump would put a stop to it all.

Since Rudy Giuliani became the top lawyer for Trump, he was causing havoc. It at times appeared he created more havoc for Trump than he did for his adversaries.

Giuliani could be compared to a ticking time bomb as he made many revelations about what Trump did or didn’t do.

The latest comments from him were startling to say the least. He had said that Trump repaid Michael Cohen for a payment to Stormy Daniels. Now he said that Cohen may have paid more women for Trump.

Michael Avanetti, who is Stormy Daniels attorney, said the latest comment by Giuliani was ridiculous.

Giuliani also claimed that Trump could refuse a subpoena from Mueller, but experts disagree with what he claimed.

Giuliani also said he was pleased by response of his media stint. He said “everybody’s reacting to us now.”

Giuliani Tactics

Trump was known for being controversial which could be why he hired Giuliani. His lawyer was showing some of the very characteristics of the President.

Since he started making his claims both on TV and otherwise, he had been creating quite a bit of chaos.

Giuliani said in a response to the media talks that they thought everything went well.

“I’ll give you the conclusion: We all feel pretty good that we’ve got everything kind of straightened out and we’re setting the agenda,” Giuliani said.

“Everybody’s reacting to us now and I feel good about that because that’s what I came in to do,” he said.

He made it clear that he came to Trump’s rescue with a purpose in mind and despite claiming all was well was it?

“It seems to me that the approach last week of the Trump team plays into the hands of Mueller’s tactic to try, at any cost, to try to find technical violations against lower-ranking people so that they can be squeezed,” said Allan Dershowitz.

Dershowitz, a Harvard law professor who had counseled Trump felt Giuliani’s tactics helped Robert Mueller.

Trump pass could hurt him in many ways since he felt that no one should plead the fifth if they were innocent. It was believed that if Trump was called upon to testify he could do the same as his former lawyer Cohen.

“The mob takes the Fifth,” Trump said. “If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?”

Subpoena Power

Giuliani had said that Trump could refuse to acknowledge a subpoena from Mueller.

However some experts said this wasn’t true and Trump despite being the President would have to honor the call to testify.

“We don’t have to,” Giuliani said on ABC’s “This Week” when asked if Trump would cooperate if Mueller subpoenas him. “He’s the President of the United States. We can assert the same privilege as other Presidents have.”

“No one is above the law,” said New York Law School professor Rebecca Roiphe.

“It’s not accurate to say that sitting Presidents never have to comply with subpoenas. They have and they do,” Lisa Griffin said.

Bill Clinton had to testify after he was accused of having sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky.

If Mueller had to subpoena Trump then we would know for sure if he would have to comply or not.

Michelle Obama recently spoke about what she considered a big mistake by American women. She said that she still reflected on the election outcome and said women were responsible.

Obama had received much criticism in the past during her husband’s Presidential office and after. She didn’t allow this to hamper her in any way and had much to say about how Trump was running the Country.

This in light of what happened recently with Sarah Sanders was ironic. Her reputation and integrity faced much criticism after a statement she made proved false.

She had said in a previous briefing that Trump knew nothing of a payment to Stormy Daniels.

Trump’s recent addition to his legal team Rudy Giuliani said Trump repaid attorney Michael Cohen for the payment.

Integrity On The Line

“It doesn’t matter who holds this job for President Trump, they’re going to be unfairly attacked and ridiculed,” said Jason Miller, a former Trump campaign adviser. “Since Sarah Huckabee Sanders works for President Trump, it seems to be open season on her professionally and personally.”

After the revelation by Giuliani, Sanders faced an onslaught of questions about what was said by her and Giuliani.

“I’ve given the best information I had at the time,” Sanders said,something she said six times. “Some information I am aware of and some I’m not.”

This wasn’t a good place for Sanders to be as she often criticized those who didn’t speak the truth.

“I would always advise against giving false information,” Sanders said. “As a person of human decency, I do my best to give the right information.”

Women To Blame

Michelle Obama made a bold statement as she spoke to a large gathering of women at the United State of Women summit.

“In light of this last election, I’m concerned about us as women and how we think,” she said at the event. “What is going on in our heads where we let that happen, you know?”

“When the most qualified person running was a woman, and look what we did instead, I mean that says something about where we are,” Obama said.

“That’s what we have to explore, because if we as women are still suspicious of one another, if we still have this crazy, crazy bar for each other that we don’t have for men… if we’re not comfortable with the notion that a woman could be our president compared to… what, then we have to have those conversations with ourselves as women,” she added.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller was having a hard time prosecuting a Russian firm accused of election tampering.

The company Concord Management and Consulting was showing resilience as Mueller sought a way to convict the group.

The biggest issue came from the Russian Government and based on relations between the two it came as no surprise.

It was reported the Government wouldn’t accept the paperwork from the U.S. legal team and wanted more proof.

Trump’s lawyer may be another snag for Mueller as well. It was believed he was trying to create issues for the probe as an analyst said he would “throw bombs” into the investigations.

Meanwhile it was believed that Trump may have been financed by others as he went on a spending spree buying quite a lot of real estate.

Money Trail?

It was believed that Trump spent a lot of money that was not his own. He considered himself “the King of debt” according to one source.

“He always used other people’s money. That’s for sure. Not cash,” said Barbara Res, who was a top executive for Trump in the 1980s and 1990s. “He always got somebody to put up funds for him. To put up the money. And he’d put up the brilliance.”

This was not what his son said, which was a contradiction to what Res claimed.

“He had incredible cash flow and built incredible wealth,” Eric Trump said. “He didn’t need to think about borrowing for every transaction. We invested in ourselves. “He added: “It’s a very nice luxury to have.”

“Borrow as much as you can for as long as you can,” George Ross wrote in his book “Trump Strategies for Real Estate.”

Ross advised Trump for 25 years as a Senior Counsel.

Inquiry Woes

It seemed that every time Mueller was making ground he hit a wall. His latest effort was going nowhere and fast.

If Mueller was dependent on help from the Russian Government to solve anything he was in trouble.

It was very unlikely that the Russians would cooperate to indict their own.

All efforts to acquire help from the Russian Government were futile.

“To the Government’s knowledge, no further steps have been taken within Russia to effectuate service,” prosecutors said.

The Russian company hired a U.S. lawyer to represent them. He responded to the attempt by Mueller to have the hearing rescheduled.

“I find it disturbing that in your first communication you are already behaving in a manner that is inconsistent with the practices of the Department of Justice,” Eric Dubelier said.

Dubelier, an US attorney from the law firm Reed Smith reached out to prosecutor Jeannie Rhee by email.

Another issue for Mueller was Rudy Giuliani. It was believed that he was there to make life difficult for the probe.

“Rudy Giuliani is capable of being so reckless as we have seen throughout the campaign and as we are seeing now, that it is very difficult to parse what he is doing and saying, except that he is trying to throw bombs into the Mueller investigation,” Carl Bernstein said.

Bernstein had been around for a long time as journalist and made the comments after Giuliani appeared on various interviews on Fox.

Circulating reports that Trump paid hush money just before election time and that he could be subpoenaed was a big issue.

The question though was which of the two issues could be most concerning for him?

It was clear that what was now being told was contrary to what was revealed months before. The new revelation about repaying Michael Cohen also raised integrity concerns for Sarah Sanders.

The White House Press Secretary faced questions regarding what she knew about the statement. Did she knowingly lie about the matter?

She claimed that she didn’t, repeating many times “again, I gave you the best information that I had.”

Trump’s new attorney Rudy Giuliani was the one who revealed Trump repaid Cohen.

It was reported that he met with Trump in November 2016 at Trump International Golf Club.

He believed there was a possibility of Robert Mueller subpoenaing Trump. He said he would be prepared if this had to actually happen.

Trump vs Mueller

There was expectancy at one stage for Trump and Mueller to meet for an interview. This never materialized since his lawyers at the time felt it was a bad idea.

Trump recently acquired the services of Giuliani and Emmet Flood. Flood represented Bill Clinton during his impeachment proceedings.

“I think Emmet was brought in because he represented Clinton during their subpoena battle and knows a great deal about it,” Giuliani said.

Giuliani was once the Mayor of New York and may have been one of the more famous persons to lead there.

“I think it’s 50/50,” Giuliani said. “But I got to prepare for that 50 percent.” He felt that Trump could be forced to testify.

Pay Out Woes

The hush money issue was a big thing for Trump and his allies. It showed no signs of letting up in any hurry.

Furthermore it looked as if it could become more of an issue, with Mueller even looking into its significance.

This was one of the reasons that Cohen’s office was raided by FBI in April 2018.

The payment was such a significant issue that Giuliani tried to vindicate Trump by saying Cohen was repaid.

This however made the situation worse as questions were raised as to where the money came from and if Trump lied about the payment.

He had said earlier that he didn’t know that Cohen made such a payment, but now that could be proven to be false.

Giuliani’s interview with Sean Hannity could prove worse for Trump. Did he make the wrong decision by hiring Giuliani? His revelations on the Fox show were startling to say the least.

“He didn’t know about the specifics of it as far as I know,” Mr. Giuliani said. “But he did know about the general arrangement that Michael would take care of things like this.”

Laura Ingraham followed that interview and was awe struck at what transpired.

She said “I love Rudy, but they better have an explanation for that. That’s a problem.”

A new revelation by Rudy Giuliani could very well make life even more difficult for Trump. Giuliani revealed that Trump repaid Michael Cohen for the payment made to Stormy Daniels.

The money was allegedly paid to her to keep quiet about what happened between her and Trump. Trump claimed that he knew nothing of the payment. So it was surprising that a report would be made about repaying Cohen.

Michael Avanetti was blown back by the statement form Giuliani.

“I am rarely, as your viewers know, rendered speechless,” he said. “But I am absolutely speechless at this revelation and this admission.”

Giuliani and Trump could also find pressure coming from the Special Counsel. It was reported that Trump had reshuffled his legal team. Some saw it as a sign of war and felt Trump may attempt to fire Robert Mueller or force him out.

On the other end it was believed that Trump could be forced to testify. It was also believed if he decided to face Mueller in an interview he wouldn’t come out unscathed.

President’s Woes

It was made known that Trump may be forced to testify. However it could be limited as he could refuse to answer certain questions.

His former personal attorney pleaded the fifth recently. So it was likely that Trump would or could do the same.

“As a practical matter, the president would have the ability to refuse to answer practically any question,” said Bill Jeffress. “He has to give his name, his occupation, and that sort of thing. But any questions about his official activities or campaign activities, he can just refuse to answer.”

Jeffress, a veteran Washington defense lawyer who was involved in Nixon’s defense made the declaration.

It was said that Trump would receive some sort of scarring if he accepted Mueller’s invite for questioning.

“Tell the truth and there’s no trap,” Jeffrey Cramer said. “The problem, as we’ve seen with this president, is that he says anything he wants without any regard for the facts. And maybe if his lawyers give him the answers to Mueller’s questions, he’ll sit down and study them. But it’s the follow-ups that are going to get him.”

Debt Repaid

It was felt that the money paid to Stormy Daniels was connected to his campaign in 2016. The argument was the money was paid just days before the Presidential Election in an effort to keep Daniels quiet.

Trump’s new attorney Rudy Giuliani claimed that the payment was personal hence the move to repay Cohen.

“Certainly, the argument that the Government will make is that the $130,000 payment from Michael Cohen to Daniels was a loan to the Trump campaign to keep these allegations secret obviously and then Trump paying Cohen back would be a campaign expenditure” Andrew Herman said.

Herman, an attorney specializing in campaign finance law at Miller & Chevalier made the disclosure.

Daniels lawyer had his say on the matter.

“This is an outrage what has gone on here,” Avenatti said. “The American people have been lied to about this agreement, about the $130,000, about the reimbursement, and this is consistent with what we have been saying now for months.

“That ultimately it is going to be proven and ultimately was going to come out, “he continued. We just didn’t know that Rudy Giuliani was going to go on the Sean Hannity show and admit it on National television.”

It seemed unlikely that this new approach by Trump and his legal team would work. However until the matter was fully played out nothing was certain.

There are so many problems plaguing the American Government that it was cause for concern. One of the biggest issues was the situations surrounding the President.

Instead of Trump being solely focused on running the Country he had to deal with many types of allegations.

The allegations if true would mean that it was best for the President to recuse himself from the office or face criminal charges.

Another issue was the one affecting the DOJ which found itself under constant scrutiny of the governing body.

Congress was also in a bind as it was divided on important issues. Many Senators resigned amid sexual allegations. As time went by more persons faced similar accusations a sign that all was not well at the top.

It was even reported that Congress members were sleeping on the job. The reason they gave as the inability to afford an apartment.

Trump’s Woes

Special Counsel Robert Mueller signaled that Trump could possibly be subpoenaed after his lawyers refused to allow him to interview him.

It was reported that John Dowd, Trump’s former lead lawyer resisted Mueller.

“This isn’t some game,” Dowd said, according to two people with knowledge of his comments. “You are screwing with the work of the president of the United States.”

Mueller was still looking forward to meet with Trump and an interview was possible. Trump still continued to call the inquiry a witch hunt.

“Oh, I see . . . you have a made up, phony crime, Collusion, that never existed, and an investigation begun with illegally leaked classified information. Nice!” Trump tweeted.

A former doctor of Trump claimed that he created a false report about his health in 2015.

The letter claimed Trump was in great health and would be fine to run the Country. This was written by Dr. Harold Bornstein at the time.

“If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the Presidency.”

The doctor recently changed his tune and said what was written was what Trump wanted.

“(Trump) dictated the letter and I would tell him what he couldn’t put in there,” he said. “They came to pick up their letter at 4 o’clock or something.”

Governing Woes

The GOP was on a track of persistent attacks against anyone who was a threat to Trump and his agenda.

A group of its members who were considered Trump allies were going after Rod Rosenstein.

Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General found himself in a tough situation. He was however ready to defend his department and himself.

Lawmakers were threatening to impeach Rosenstein or impose sanctions.

“If we’re going to accuse somebody of wrongdoing, we have to have admissible evidence and credible witnesses,” Mr. Rosenstein said. “We need to prepare to prove our case in court. And we have to affix our signature to the charging document.”

Rosenstein was accused of stonewalling by Rep. Mark Meadows who asked him to resign.

The other issue of Congressmen sleeping at their offices was worrying too.

How could it be possible that men with such a high level of pay can’t afford an apartment?

“If we go to the point where you have to rent or have to buy [in DC], then only millionaires would be members of Congress,’’ he said. “I don’t think that was the intent of our Founding Fathers.”

However some of the Congressmen colleague thought the practice should be stopped.

“Look, it’s unhealthy. It’s nasty. I wouldn’t want to be entertained in somebody’s bedroom,” said Rep. Bennie Thompson. “Sleeping in your office is not proper.”

It seemed that some transformation was needed; it can’t be that such a Government would find itself in such turmoil.

It was allegedly reported by members of the White House staff that John Kelly called Trump an idiot. He however denied such reports and dismissed the report as “total BS.”

The last person who was accused of calling Trump by a disrespectful name no longer worked at the White House.

Rex Tillerson was accused of doing the same but unlike Kelly he refused to say whether he did or not.

Kelly made it clear that the rumor was false and said his time with the President surpasses anyone else.

So why would staffers say such thing about one of their superiors? Was there a plan to undermine Kelly or even Trump?

Or maybe Kelly did call Trump an idiot and now was denying he did so?

At this point it didn’t seem to matter that much since another report stated that Kelly could become the Veteran Affairs Chief.

New VA

“There have been discussions among the senior staff and the president directly about the possibility of Gen. Kelly going there [to the VA],”a source said.

The person who disclosed the information was familiar about the situation.

It was stated that the department needed someone with political capacity. The department has about 370,000 persons.

The person still had to be approved by the Senate, so Trump wanted someone who was considered strong enough to fill the post.

It was not yet confirmed if Kelly was indeed chosen for the post.

It was also felt that putting Kelly in such a position could cause more harm than good.

Fake News

The rumor reported by NBC News was called fake by the President who supported his Chief of Staff.

“I spend more time with the President than anyone else and we have an incredibly candid and strong relationship,” he said. “I am committed to the President, his agenda, and our Country.”

In a response to what was said about Kelly Trump made a tweet on twitter.

“The Fake News is going crazy making up false stories and using only unnamed sources (who don’t exist). They are totally unhinged …” he wrote.

Kelly added “this is another pathetic attempt to smear people close to President Trump and distract from the administration’s many successes.”

Reports from staffers within painted a different story, but at this stage it was a “my word against your” type of thing.

“He says stuff you can’t believe,” said one senior White House official. “He’ll say it and you think, ‘That is not what you should be saying.’”

“Kelly appears to be less engaged, which may be to the president’s detriment,” a second senior White House official said.

“He doesn’t even understand what DACA is. He’s an idiot,” Kelly said in one meeting, according to two officials. “We’ve got to save him from himself.”

This was just another sign of contention in the White House. Something Trump has denied saying that reports were false about problems in the administration.

Or maybe he was right and all of this was some outside sources trying to create mayhem within and make the people doubt.

Whatever was ongoing wasn’t good for the Country and some sort of clarity and transparency was needed.

The House Intel Committee claimed they found no evidence of collusion by the President. Yet a member of the GOP felt that the matter was best investigated by the Executive Branch.

He didn’t think that the claim by the committee was enough to vindicate Trump of the accusations made against him.

It was known that the committee was favorable towards Trump and Democrats had accused them on more than one occasion of being bias.

It didn’t help that the President’s response to the Russian lawyer claim of being an informant could make things worse.

He made comments about her revelation while speaking at a rally in Michigan. He spoke about Natalia Veselnitskaya who met with some of his team at the Trump Tower.

It was also believed that in so doing he may have said more than he should, raising questions about the matter.

Russian Lawyer

In his bid to make himself look good about giving Russia a hard time Trump may have slipped.

Talking about the Russian lawyer Trump said “In fact, have you heard about the lawyer? “For a year — a woman lawyer — she was like, ‘Oh, I know nothing.’ Now all of a sudden, she supposedly is involved with the [Russian] Government.”

“I am a lawyer, and I am an informant,” she said. “Since 2013, I have been actively communicating with the office of the Russian Prosecutor General.”

It was likely that Robert Mueller would look into what the lawyer claimed. She had said previously to her announcement that she was surprised Mueller hadn’t contacted her.

“Look at what’s happened,” Trump said at his rally on Saturday. “Look at how these politicians have fallen for this junk. Russian collusion — give me a break.”

House Safety

From all reports Trump may feel safe when it came to the House Intel Committee.

Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy said that James Comey assessment of the House Judiciary findings was unfair.

“I have more confidence in executive branch investigations than I do congressional,” he said as he responded to Comey calling the findings a wreck.

“When you start with a conclusion, which Adam Schiff did in March of 2017, you have evidence of collusion and then you never ever share it with anyone,” Gowdy said. “That investigation is not likely to turn out well.”

“Congress is not well-equipped to investigate crime,” Gowdy said. “I have complete confidence in Michael Horowitz, who’s the inspector general — that’s who investigated Andy McCabe and then he made a referral to the Department of Justice.”

He continued “I trust Mr. Horowitz to investigate. I’ve never accused Jim Comey of committing a crime. I’ve accused him of doing somethings that I don’t agree with. But in terms of accusing someone of a crime, a member of Congress should not do that.”

Gowdy along with many of his colleagues and the House Intel Committee throw their support behind the President.

Gowdy may still have his doubts, but that wasn’t fully known. The idea of allowing the Executive Branch to investigate the matter could be another way to vindicate Trump.

What one has to ask what was the true purposes to have the Executive Branch investigate the matter if any?

President Trump threatened to shut down the Government if Congress doesn’t fund the border wall. A few months ago he had made an attempt to assist Democrats with immigration policy in order to get that funding.

What was ironic was the fact that Democrats were willing to use the Government shutdown to get their way. That didn’t become a reality and the Dreamers were angry and even afraid of deportation.

The dust settled and DACA was ordered reinstated while Trump failed to get the funding he needed.

This led Trump to claim that the Army would pay for the wall. Something that wasn’t possible but he said it anyway.

Trump wanted the wall and was willing to use the same tactics as the Democrats to get what he wanted.

The move was in an effort to lessen the amount of illegal immigrants that were entering America through Mexico. The latest push was against a train known as the caravan that brought many immigrants into the Country.

Shut Down Threat

Trump’s tone came as he pushed for the people to vote Republican during his campaign appearance in Michigan.

“The Democrats don’t care about our military – they don’t – and they don’t care about our borders, and I don’t think they care much about crime,” Trump said.

“We have to have borders and we have to have them fast … and we need the wall,” he said. “We come up again on Sept. 28, and if we don’t get border security, we have no choice; we’ll close down the Country because we need border security.”

Trump made mention of the White House Correspondent Dinner. He received boos from the crowd as he told them he would rather be in Michigan.

“You may have heard I was invited to another event tonight, the White House Correspondents’ dinner,” he said, drawing boisterous boos from his audience. “But I’d much rather be in Washington, Mich., than Washington, D.C., that I can tell you.”

Border Troubles

The President had long complained of border concerns. During his campaign trail he promised that he would build a border wall.

This was something Trump was still fighting to give after making that promise.

On a separate note Trump made mention of allowing some immigrants access to the Country.

“We’re going to let them in because you need them,” he said.

“We need people to be able to come into our Country, do their jobs, help you on the farms and then they leave,” he said. “Guest workers: Don’t we agree we have to have them?”

It was said the Caravan was traveling through Mexico for about a month as it heads to the U.S.

Those onboard are wearisome of a President who wasn’t keen about so many immigrants in the Country.

As Trump made his many threats time will tell how this will all end!

When Donald Trump won the Presidency in 2016 it came as a surprise to many including World leaders. Trump however didn’t seem surprise and relished in the moment.

It was clear that the evangelicals played a role in helping Trump win. Another factor that gave him the win was the Electoral College. Trump however lost the popular vote, even though he claimed he won that.

After that victory Trump seemed poised to use the same strategy as he showed support to his Republican colleagues. They were very concerned by his approach and are fearful he could cost them their positions.

Different Views

“He doesn’t think that’s how you win elections because that’s not how he won his election,” Eric Beach said. “He knows and understands that the core issues of today are illegal immigration — including building the wall — and trade inequity.”

Beach, a Republican strategist leads a pro-Trump political committee called Great America PAC.

There were some persons who believed that Trump could be a great help but those numbers were low.

“I would expect the president and vice president to be in congressional districts all across the country,” Lee Zeldin said. “I’ve gotten nothing but positive feedback on the desire of the president’s team to be as helpful as possible.”

Zeldin was representing New York and said he would welcome Trump anytime.

Trump’s Way

The big question was how well would Trump strategy work for them. There was no guarantee that what worked in 2016 would work now.

A lot has changed since Trump took office and it could possibly work out to be negative. Election day however was more of statistics than assumptions and only it’s effects would be known after the polls.

“He’s always defied political convention, but this is a political convention I think that we should adhere to,” said Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, “which is to focus on that which is important to people, which is their wallet.”

“We need to be unified, and I know this is a frustrating business that we’re involved in, but rather than having circular firing squads, we need to be shooting outward,” Senator John Cornyn said.

Many of the Senators had their own ideas about what should be done. It was clear however that Trump was accustomed to doing his own thing. He may tolerate you for a while but eventually he would have his way.

In just a short time it would be clear what type of effect Trump’s role would play in the midterms for many of his colleagues.

The President of the United States of America had recently said that North Korea would denuclearize. Many believed this was a misconception and doubt it would be possible.

Now the latest news coming from the Korean Peninsula could possibly prove Trump right.

A historic event took place in South Korea. For the first time a North Korean leader had visited South Korea.

Kim had announced that the discussion between the two men was very fruitful. Kim said that the North and South were the same people.

The North Korean leader was correct about his statement that they were one people. The land was divided into two portions the North and South, but the people were certainly one.

This new development created optimism for Koreans but is also did the same for Trump and his administration.

Trump’s Praise

Trump had much praise for the development in the Korean Peninsula. This was what he wanted to hear and it was quite a different ball game from a few months back.

“KOREAN WAR TO END! The United States, and all of its GREAT people, should be very proud of what is now taking place in Korea!” Trump said on Twitter.

“Good things are happening, but only time will tell!” he added.

Trump and Kim were expected to meet soon, no date or location had been set, but Trump was looking forward to it.

The meeting between Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in could now open the way for positive talks. Trump and Kim meeting would be considered a historic event considering their past.

It seemed very possible as the White House recently shared a photo with Mike Pompeo and Kim.

Pompeo was recently confirmed as the Secretary of State. The visit to North Korea was before he was officially given the post.

Common Ground

“South and North Korea confirmed the common goal of realizing, through complete denuclearization, a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula,” read a statement signed by both leaders.

“The South and the North agreed to work diligently to win the international community’s support and cooperation for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula,” their statement said.

The news was a joyful occasion for the World. The leaders of many Countries looked forward to the day when North Korea would change its outlook. It seemed that time could finally be coming but it would take some time for this to be considered a reality.

“I heard you had your early morning sleep disturbed many times because you had to attend the N.S.C. meetings because of us,” Mr. Kim said. “Getting up early in the morning must have become a habit for you. I will make sure that your morning sleep won’t be disturbed.”

Mr. Moon jokingly replied: “Now I can sleep in peace.”

The World watches in anticipation to see what this new development will hold, it was an unprecedented moment.

The Special Counsel ability to press those close to President Trump was hitting home. Despite months of denying any interference by Russia in elections the investigations continued.

Other forces made the situation even direr as the accusations by Stormy Daniels made life hard for Trump and his personal lawyer.

Michael Cohen was now preparing to plead the 5th in a matter that saw FBI raid his office. Could this decision mean that Cohen had something to hide? Or was Trump the one to be concerned and Cohen was trying to protect him?

Even now Trump’s lawyers had said they are hiring a special forensic team to review documents seized.

The Judge hadn’t allowed the documents to be viewed and Trump and Cohen lawyers were pressing to see them.

This could be another sign that there was information which could prove damaging. This would eventually be known if the situation was handled correctly with transparency.

Trump’s feud with Comey wasn’t helpful in anyway either. He called Comey many names, but Comey said he chose to respect the office and had no nickname for Trump.

Pleading The 5th

“Based upon the advice of counsel, I will assert my Fifth Amendment rights in connection with all proceedings in this case due to the ongoing criminal investigation by the FBI and U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York,” Cohen said.

He made this statement just a day before and said why he decided to plead the fifth.

He said “on April 10, 2018, I first realized that my Fifth Amendment rights would be implicated in this case, after I considered the events of April 9, 2018, described in the above paragraph two.”

In response to the development Daniels lawyer Michael Avanetti tweeted “This is a stunning development. Never before in our nation’s history has the attorney for the sitting President invoked the 5th Amend in connection with issues surrounding the President. It is esp. stunning seeing as MC served as the “fixer” for Mr. Trump for over 10 yrs.”

Russian Probe Pressure

The Russian investigation was certainly a nightmare; it was taking a toll on many people. Another individual who suffered scrutiny was Attorney General Jeff Sessions. It was said that he was tiptoeing around the probe.

Sessions was asked if he would resign if Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein were fired.

He replied “that calls for a speculative answer.” He continued “I am not able to do that.”

When asked about the matter pertaining to Cohen he kept his response simple, refusing to disclose any information.

“I have sought advice on those matters. I have not met with the top ethics person on it, but I can assure you I have not violated my recusal,” he said.

Meanwhile Trump added another lawyer to his legal team recently. Rudolph W. Giuliani had joined Trump’s team and was looking into making the interview with Mueller possible.

“I’m doing it because I hope we can negotiate an end to this for the good of the Country and because I have high regard for the President and for Bob Mueller,” Giuliani said.

Now that Cohen was going to plead the fifth regarding his protection of Trump, how important a role could this development have?

It was possible that the Daniels situation could be among the questions Trump could face. Only time will tell how all of this will go down, only time.

The latest order by a Federal Judge may be just what the Dreamers needed. They were in limbo as Democrats were unable to get a deal during the Government shutdown.

It could be that a Judge instead of the opposing party would be their savior. The Judge ordered the scheme reopened as it accepted new applications.

It was clear that not everyone supported Trump and his colleague’s stance on immigration.

He also faced challenges in elections that were taking place. It seemed that many Muslims were motivated to run for office.

Another issue was the travel ban; that too was facing the scrutiny of the Supreme Court.

Travel Ban

The argument brought forward by those challenging the travel ban claimed it was based on discrimination.

They argued that the ban had nothing to do with law but was more of a personal matter.

It was claimed that because they were Muslim that the ban was set in place. It was reported that during his campaign Trump promised to rid America of Muslims if he was elected.

Trump also claimed that the ban was to protect America from Islamic militants.

Those who supported Trump claimed that what he said had no relevance because he wasn’t President at the time.

Muslim Motivation

One of the people contesting elections was Fayrouz Saad, a 34-year-old Muslim American. She would be running for a district in Michigan.

“It was just clear, despite the election, that Michigan was just not going to stand for discrimination,” she said.

It was reported that at least 90 persons from the Muslim American community will contest elections.

“My parents came here in search of the American dream,” said Saad, who worked at the Department of Homeland Security under the Obama administration. “I got into public service to protect that.”

It was believed there was stigma attached to being Muslim.

It was noteworthy that a concern was placed on the safety of Americans. It was well known that some Muslim and Islamic individuals committed acts of terror. This however could be said about all other groups of people.

Does this mean that everyone would be placed under the same scope? One can be sure that there are many well-meaning Muslims as well as other races of individuals. Everyone deserves the opportunity to showcase their values and worth.

“We have to elevate Muslim American voices,” Jetpac Executive Director Shaun Kennedy told CNN. “American Muslims are fed up of not being included in conversation that is about them … and they are being made targets.”

This new development could give those considered outcasts just the opportunity they need. Let’s hope they make the best of it and not allow others to say “I told you so.”

The Russian probe had seen many individuals arrested and charged. It however didn’t retrieve the main purpose it was started.

Nevertheless the probe still pressed on to prove without a doubt that Russia interfered in the 2016 Elections and Trump knew about it.

There had been lots of drama, fear and even lies. Yet no solid evidence had been given despite many persons claiming collusion.

Trump had been denying any collusion for a while. It was proven that meetings took place between Americans and Russians but that was all.

Many persons close to Trump were questioned about their role and many denied any such acts. Investigators believed that many of these individuals were withholding information but why?

Trump And Russia

James Comey had said in his memo that Trump had denied sleeping in Russia during 2013. However records show that the President lied about his stay.

Flight records and social media proved that Trump spent a few days in Russia and didn’t leave in a short space of time like he claimed.

“He said he arrived in the morning, did events, then showered and dressed for the pageant at the hotel,” and then left for the event, Comey wrote. “Afterwards, he returned only to get his things because they departed for New York by plane that same night.”

Records showed that Trump spent Friday Nov. 8 2013 to Sunday Nov. 10 in Russia. This was contrary to the information he gave Comey.

Trump And Cohen

Trump had made it clear that he didn’t think his personal lawyer Michael Cohen would flip on him.

Despite this assertion by Trump many analysts still wondered if Cohen could be persuaded to turn on Trump.

The documents found in the raid on Cohen’s office haven’t been revealed. At this moment they still remained a mystery.

How troubling could this be is a very good question as it was unclear if the documents contained anything that could implicate Trump. Could there be anything to implicate his allies as well?

Trump was informed that he wasn’t a target in the Mueller probe, but some actions certainly made it seem otherwise.

“There really has not been any visible change since he was apparently informed of his status as ‘subject.’ Not being considered a target of the Mueller probe does not mean he can’t still be charged as they obtain additional evidence,” James Trusty said. “Not being a target for the Cohen investigation and search warrant is slightly reassuring, but again does not mean much in terms of whether he will ever be charged.”

Trusty served under the Bush and Obama administrations as a high ranking Justice Department official.

“We heard he had some proclivity to make tapes,” one Trump adviser said. “Now we are wondering, who did he tape? Did he store those someplace where they were actually seized? . . . Did they find his recordings?”

The thought of viable evidence in the hands of Mueller was certainly terrifying, but more terrifying was the wait.

The President had recently tweeted that North Korea had agreed to denuclearization but some say they haven’t.

It appeared that they agreed to stop testing and dismantle a test site but nothing more.

Nevertheless this was still considered a major step since the two leaders were at loggerheads just months before.

It was good news to hear that Kim Jong-un was willing to stop testing of missiles and have talks with Trump.

A few days earlier Trump said he would walk out of meeting with Kim if it wasn’t fruitful.

The location of the meeting hadn’t been given at this point, but South Korea played a vital role in the meeting taking place.

Asian Persuasion

“I told President Trump that in our meeting, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said he’s committed to denuclearization,” South Korea’s National Security Adviser said. “Kim pledged that North Korea will refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests.”

This statement was quite different from what the President was claiming. Was it possible this was Trump’s way of saying what he expected to happen?

Could having a fruitful result at those talks be about total denuclearization?

The statement begs to differ as it seemed unlikely that Kim would totally give up his arms and be a sitting duck.

“Look, this is a great public relations effort by Kim Jong-un. And I think people recognize that,” Sen. Bob Corker.

When asked if he felt Kim would consent to such, Corker felt caution should be taken.

“Well, I don’t think he said anything about denuclearizing on the front end necessarily,” he said.

Nuclear Tact

It was possible that Kim could be playing games. The tension between the two leaders was very heated for months. The men were known to call each other by demeaning names and made many threats.

This talk shouldn’t be taken lightly and the World may be hoping that these talks would bring about a peaceable solution between the two.

It would also mean the leaders would be more at ease and some level of calmness would return to the Korean Peninsula.

Regarding denuclearization the Senator said it would be very unlikely, but this would only be clear after the talks, once they took place.

“Is it realistic that he’s just willy-nilly going to do that? Absolutely not,” Corker said. “But, you know, progress can be made, freezing the program, who knows what he’s — what his ambitions are as it relates to South Korea.”

“Well, I think this announcement on Friday is better than continued testing, but it’s not much better than that,” he said. “But I do think they show that the President has put Kim Jong Un on the wrong foot for the first time.”

It was reported that any attempt by Rod Rosenstein to protect Robert Mueller could be hurtful. The report claimed that the Justice Department could suffer.

More concerning was the thought that Trump could fire Mueller as he called the appointment illegal.

Rumors speculated that Trump had wanted to fire the Special Counsel for a long time.

There was also a rumor that Trump could fire Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Trump had been at odds with most of his Justice Department for a while now. He had feuds with the FBI and even some of his Party colleagues.

Now America watched to see what Trump will do in these circumstances.

Legal Appointment?

Trump had tweeted “James Comey illegally leaked classified documents to the press in order to generate a Special Council (sic)? Therefore, the Special Council was established based on an illegal act? Really, does everybody know what that means?”

Was what Trump really true or was he grasping at straws?

“James Comey illegally leaked classified documents to the press in order to generate a Special Council? Therefore, the Special Council was established based on an illegal act? Really, does everybody know what that means?”

The big question that lingered was if Mueller’s appointment was illegal, how come he hasn’t fired him yet?

Justice Dept.

The Justice Dept. was dealing with many issues and feared the system could be hindered.

“The department is responding to what it believes to be good faith requests for information pursuant to Congress’s appropriate oversight function, and the department is doing so in a way that will not have any adverse impact on ongoing investigations,” said Stephen E. Boyd.

Boyd, the Justice Department’s Assistant Attorney General for legislative affairs made comments regarding the ongoing internal issues.

It was believed that Rosenstein’s stance to protect Mueller could harm the department.

“It could become an exception that swallows the rule,” said Sen. Richard Blumenthal. “Every request by Congress can be made to seem exceptional.”

It was also believed that Trump threw Rosenstein under the bus.

“Rod got suckered by the President in writing the memo,” said Philip B. Heymann. “Trump marched his deputy attorney general way out on a limb and then left him there.”

Heymann, a former Justice Department official and one of Mr. Rosenstein’s mentors felt Rosenstein got a bad deal.

The deputy AG also had those who supported him.

“I never heard a political word escape from his lips,” said Brian E. Frosh. “He was smart, honest, fair, tough — everything you want in a prosecutor.”

Rumors had been spreading that Michael Cohen could be Trump’s Achilles heel. The recent targeting by Robert Mueller and the FBI hit home hard for Trump.

The raid on his office and the refusal by a Judge to grant Trump’s lawyers access to documents seized wasn’t helping the situation.

Analysts believed that the pressure Trump’s lawyer was now facing could make him crack and throw him under the bus.

The belief by some that Cohen could eventually be the one who sinks Trump was disputed by Trump. He disagreed with the idea and even tweeted about it.

Poor Cohen

A longtime friend of Cohen apparently spoke about his upbringing.

“He grew up in a homogenous, wealthy enclave, and he came to a radically different place, Brighton Beach, on the border of Coney Island, which was filled with immigrants and minorities,” said the friend.

Cohen had recently joined Trump’s legal team after his head lawyer quit. He was once the personal lawyer of Trump and was considered a friend.

Things got rocky really fast after the feud with Stormy Daniels began. It got worse when FBI raided his office.

Michael even helped out Trump once when as a unit owner he faced trouble while managing the property. Cohen sided with Trump and he eventually won that battle.

“When Michael won that fight, that’s when Trump gained a lot of respect for him,” said David Schwartz.

Schwartz was a longtime friend of Cohen and his legal representative.

Trump Certain

Trump tweeted “non-existent “sources” and a drunk/drugged up loser who hates Michael, a fine person with a wonderful family. Michael is a businessman for his own account/lawyer who I have always liked & respected. Most people will flip if the Government lets them out of trouble, even if.”

The President was certainly sure about his long time lawyer friend. He wasn’t satisfied with just the one tweet and continued with another.

He tweeted “It means lying or making up stories. Sorry, I don’t see Michael doing that despite the horrible Witch Hunt and the dishonest media!”

It had been a while since Cohen was facing the pressure and hadn’t buckled up to this point.

This didn’t mean it wasn’t possible, but only time will tell. Many of Trump’s former associates refused to offer any information. This could be another reason that Trump felt safe even though Cohen was under fire.

The question that lingered in the mind was how much pressure Cohen can take and how will he react?

The memos that James Comey had compiled were recently released. Comey had recently released a book that talked about his dealings as FBI Director and his encounters with Trump. He also was pressed by Trump’s allies to release the memos.

Since the release of those memos Trump had claimed he was vindicated from any Russian collusion.

He also continued his assault on Trump by calling him a liar and someone who leaked information.

Trump tweeted “So General Michael Flynn’s life can be totally destroyed while Shadey James Comey can Leak and Lie and make lots of money from a third rate book (that should never have been written). Is that really the way life in America is supposed to work? I don’t think so!”

The House GOP Committee also blasted Comey and claimed his actions were selfish.

“Former Director Comey was willing to overlook all of the aforementioned characteristics in order to keep his job,” the committee said. “In his eyes, the real crime was his own firing.”

Memos

The memos talked about the interaction between Trump and Comey. It outlined many of the conversations the two men had.

One of the things mentioned was leakers. Comey believed there was a possible breach of security among his own.

“I said I was eager to find leakers and would like to nail one to the door as a message,” Mr. Comey said.

He mentioned that years ago it was possible to gather information from reporters but things have changed.

“I said something about it being difficult and he replied that we need to go after the reporters and referred to the fact that 10 or 15 years ago, we put them in jail to find what they know and it worked.”

He also said that Trump wanted him to do something about that.

“I explained that I was a fan of pursuing leaks aggressively but that going after reporters was tricky, for legal reasons and because D.O.J. tends to approach it conservatively,” Mr. Comey said.

The President then suggested that he talk to Jeff Sessions about that Comey claimed.

The memos also talked about Michael Flynn, Reince Priebus, Andrew McCabe and the dossier.

Comey Blasted

The Russian investigation pressed hard against Trump. There were others who his agenda pushed hard to confine him. It was clear however that the President still had friends, including his colleagues.

This was very evident when Comey faced the House GOP Committee about the released memos.

A group of three men blasted Comey. Bob Goodlatte, Trey Gowdy and Devin Nunes ripped him apart.

“(Comey) was willing to work for someone he deemed morally unsuited for office, capable of lying, requiring of personal loyalty, worthy of impeachment, and sharing the traits of a mob boss,” the congressmen said in a statement.

They certainly weren’t impressed with what they read. It was unclear if these men were after the truth or just wanted to punish Comey for his attacks on the President.

Either way they made the most of their opportunity to let Comey know how they felt about him.

Even if Trump wasn’t vindicated by the memo he certainly got adequate support.

The last few weeks in the Russian probe were not the best for President Trump. He was bombarded by the FBI who targeted his lawyer. His efforts to block the viewing of documents that were seized failed.

Reports also circulated that another of Trump’s lawyers warned him about Michael Cohen.

Trump however still had friends that had his back. His allies were pressing for information regarding Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein.

There wanted documents related to the behavior practices of his staff who were involved in the Russian probe and the email scandal. It was believed that Hillary Clinton got off the hook for the said scandal and more should have been done.

Lawyer Up

One of Trump’s former lawyers, Jay Goldberg said that based on a scale of 1 to 100 that Cohen was less than 1.

Goldberg said he told Trump “Michael will never stand up [for you].”

The raid on Cohen’s office had left many concerns among Trump and his allies. Could there be a concern that Cohen might repay Trump by throwing him under the bus as well?

Trump was known for throwing others under the bus. Nikki Haley was a perfect example and Cohen also dealt with such an act recently. Trump claimed he knew nothing of any payments being made to Stormy Daniels. Something that Cohen claimed he had done.

Rosenstein Pressure

“They’ve been saying I’m going to get rid of them for the last three months, four months, five months,” Trump said Wednesday. “And they’re still here. We want to get the investigation over with, done with, put it behind us. And we have to get back to business.”

Trump spoke about the situation as his allies pressed for more information from Rosenstein.

“As far as the investigation, nobody has ever been more transparent,” he said. “I have instructed the lawyers, ‘be totally transparent.”’

Trump made these comments as during a news conference with visiting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Something Rosenstein said may have been responsible for the push for the documents.

“One or more of the memos may relate to an ongoing investigation, may contain classified information, and may report confidential Presidential communications, so we have a legal duty to evaluate the consequences of providing access to them,” Rosenstein wrote.

The House Judiciary Chair indicated his intention to subpoena James Comey’s memos.

Things are certainly getting hotter surrounding the Russian probe. Trump and his allies aren’t showing any signs of giving in to the pressure.

The investigators are pressing for more information and are willing to pursue anyone they consider a potential aide to them.

What will the outcome be was still a mystery, but something or someone will have to give eventually.

Nikki Haley was recently thrown under the bus by her Superior. She had said that more sanctions were coming to Russia, but Trump said the opposite when he spoke the next day.

Some took it as a mix up between the two, but it could also mean that Trump changed his mind after giving Haley the go ahead.

The belief was that Haley wouldn’t speak in such a manner without first talking to the President. So it possibly meant that he decided to take another route without discussing the matter with her.

Trump was well known for throwing his colleagues under the bus, so this came as no surprise.

Whatever the reason it placed Haley in a peculiar position. Could what she said hereafter be trusted? Her credibility was placed on the line by the man she represented at the U.N and other places.

White House Tension

A White House official claimed that Haley was confused about what actions the U.S. would take regarding Russia.

She responded that she was in no way confused by what she said and it was clear that there was a document to prove this.

“She got ahead of the curve,” Larry Kudlow said. Kudlow, the President’s National Economic Adviser made this statement to reporters.

“She’s done a great job. She’s a very effective ambassador, but there might have been some momentary confusion about that,” he continued.

Kudlow later called Haley and apologized after she responded that she wasn’t confused.

This document proved that Haley was clear about what she said and there had to be a change of heart on the decision.

“We also intend to impose specific additional sanctions against Russia to respond to Moscow’s ongoing support for the Assad regime, which has enabled the regime’s atrocities against the Syrian people,” said a document.

Haley’s Credibility

“It damages her credibility going forward and once again makes everyone, friend and foe alike, wonder that when the United States says something, approves something, calls for something, opposes something, is it for real?” said Rep. Gerald E. Connolly. “Should we wait to see what Trump does the next day?”

Haley had the backing of some who believed she wasn’t trying to undermine the White House.

“Coordinated messaging by our Government on matters as serious as these is very important, so it is best that an episode such as this one not be repeated,” said John Negroponte. He continued that he believed Haley “has absolutely no interest in undercutting, contradicting or getting out in front of the White House.”

President Trump was having a hard time dealing with the issues that surrounded him. He wanted access to the files obtained by the FBI but was unable to do so.

Some believed that Trump was very worried about what was in the files the FBI now possessed. A Judge ruled that Trump and his lawyer Michael Cohen would have to wait before they could have access to the files.

Trump also continued to have issues with the Russian probe. Those who tried to defend Trump were having a hard time. It was unlikely that this was the position in which many of them wanted to find themselves.

Probing

One of the major concerns for those defending Trump was his ability to throw others under the bus.

Many lawyers who would have defended Trump refused because of his social media addiction. Trump was known for his undesirable tact for tweeting about any and everything.

“Obviously this is an unusual situation because it’s perfectly obvious that Mr. Trump likes to be his own lawyer, and lawyers have to be concerned about their own reputation. And I’m sure that factors into their thinking,” said Bill Jeffress.

Trump’s personal lawyer was also another burden for the President as he was being investigated for his role with any Russian connections.

Files Worry

“I think it’s a huge minefield for Donald Trump and the Trump Organization,” said trial attorney Joseph Cammarata. “I think this is on its own track and this train is coming down the track with brute force.”

Many individuals who were part of the legal fraternity believed Trump was very worried.

“I agree with the consensus forming that it’s very dangerous for the president, probably the most serious thing yet,” said Sol Wisenberg.

He asked “Even if you shut Mueller down some way, how do you shut down the Southern District (federal court)?”

During the Court hearing Cohen also made a revelation. He said that a client of his he wanted to remain anonymous was Sean Hannity.

Hannity responded to the claim and said that Cohen never represented him. He said “But I have occasionally had brief discussions about legal questions about which I wanted his input and his perspective.”

“I tell you why they’re going nuts,” Hannity said of the media. “They’re assuming — because I guess he did some type of work for some Republican guy — they’re figuring, ‘Oh, he must’ve done a big settlement case for Hannity.’ That’s not — no, that’s not what happened. Ever.”

How much of an issue this becomes remained to be seen. Trump certainly had his hands full along with his attorney.

Could there be a possible rift between President Trump and Mike Pence? Or maybe the recent decision on a new National Security Adviser could be misunderstood?

Vice President Mike Pence had assigned Jon Lerner to the post but it created a problem. Lerner was known for his views that didn’t hold Trump in high regard.

It was also reported that Trump tried to block Pence choice for the position. Pence held Lerner in high regard which was the reason he gave him the post.

To some this could be a sign of more problems at the White House. Could it be that Trump and Pence be at odds?

Pence was one of his closest allies, if this proved to the case, things could get bad.

Trump was dealing with multiple issues; there was the feud with Comey and the Russian probe. He was also dealing with International affairs like the Syrian problem.

Could all these issues be taking a toll on him?

Raid Fears

Trump had said his lawyers were worried that their offices would be raided as well.

He said he wanted to review the documents that were taken from the office of his personal lawyer.

The FBI had raided the office of Michael Cohen as they sought evidence about Russian connections and anything related to Stormy Daniels.

It was reported that Cohen used Essential Consultants LLC to send payments to two different individuals as part of a settlement.

Cohen was also expected to face a Court hearing as he wanted his lawyers to have first look at documents seized. He sought to ask the Court to limit what the investigators can view.

Falling Out?

What could this mean for Pence and Trump who had always been on the same page? At least this was seen in the day to day lives of these men.

Lerner who was chosen by Pence had withdrawn himself from the post. It was certain that this would have affected Pence in some way.

Alyssa Farah, Pence’s press secretary issued a statement in regards to the matter.

“Tonight Jon informed the Vice President that he was withdrawing from coming on board as National Security Adviser and the Vice President accepted his decision.” She added “Vice President Pence holds Jon Lerner in the highest regard and expressed his deep gratitude for Jon’s willingness to consider joining our team.”

Inside sources claimed the decision created a mess inside the administration. What sort of impact this decision created was unknown, but it certainly showed that there was a lack of communication between the two men.

The President of America was known for his many feuds during his time in office. He had faced constant criticism and some may be justly so.

It was clear however that at times he may have been unjustly criticized. The latest feud between James Comey and himself was just another blow to a President who got more than his share.

The feud was considered personal by some, but it could be said that the Trump had done the same on many occasions.

On one end some felt that Comey was out of line, other felt his comments were warranted.

Trump was also dealing with the pressure that was mounting on his personal lawyer. He could possibly prove a link to getting closer to his business and private affairs. If there was any proving Russian collusion, this might be that link but nothing had been proven at this point.

Cohen’s Denial

Mueller had accused Cohen of traveling to Prague. Cohen out rightly claimed that he never went to Prague.

Sources claimed that Mueller had evidence that Cohen met Russians in Prague during Trump’s political campaign.

It was believed he met with Konstantin Kosachev, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

If this was proven a reality it could be a big blow for Trump and a win for Mueller.

“Trump looks slightly more promising,” Kosachev wrote. “At least, he is capable of giving a shake to Washington. He is certainly a pragmatist and not a missionary like his main opponent Clinton.”

This statement was seen as an indication that he supported Trump over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Election.

However Cohen said “No matter how many times or ways they write it, I have never been to Prague. I was in LA with my son. Proven!”

“Bad reporting, bad information and bad story by same reporter Peter Stone “@McClatchyDC., Cohen tweeted.

Trump/Comey Feud

The name calling between Trump and Comey continued.

Trump called Comey a “slimeball” and tweeted abut Comey’s comment about the election.

Trump tweeted “Unbelievably, James Comey states that Polls, where Crooked Hillary was leading, were a factor in the handling (stupidly) of the Clinton Email probe. In other words, he was making decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job. Slimeball!”

Comey had an interview with George Stephanopoulos where he talked about the Hillary Clinton email scandal.

Stephanopoulos asked “Wasn’t the decision to reveal influenced by your assumption that Hillary Clinton was going to win, and your concern that, she wins, this comes out several weeks later and then that’s taken by her opponents as a sign that she’s an illegitimate President?”

“It must have been,” Comey responds, adding, “I don’t remember consciously thinking about that, but it must have been. I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump.”

“I’m sure that it was a factor. I don’t remember spelling it out, but it had to have been. That she’s going to be elected president, and if I hide this from the American people, she’ll be illegitimate the moment she’s elected, the moment this comes out,” he added.

The views about the feud were seen in different light by others who voiced their opinions.

“Comey’s saying all these things about the President. … To me it is not justified at all — it shows to me a bit of pettiness or b—-iness on Comey’s part,”Pete King said. “I had a much higher regard for Jim Comey before all of this.”

On the other hand “There are no low blows when it comes to this President,” said Ruben Gallego. “He’s lowered the bar so far that he doesn’t deserve the same amount of respect that other presidents have in the past. So I’m not going to criticize somebody for not holding back.”

The recent chemical attack in Syria had outraged many people. It was called an act of atrocity that should never be repeated.

America blamed Russia for the attack as they supported the Syrian Government. Russia threatened America with retaliation if they fired any missiles. They said they would shoot down any missiles that targeted areas in Syria.

This however hadn’t deterred Trump who said that missiles would be coming despite threats.

Trump supporters weren’t pleased with the decision to make air strikes on Syria. They voiced their disgust to the act by the President.

Vladimir Putin had warned his citizens to be prepared for war with America.

Air Strike

Trump tweeted “A perfectly executed strike last night. Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military. Could not have had a better result. Mission Accomplished!”

“I spoke to the president this morning, and he said, ‘If the Syrian regime uses this poisonous gas again, the United States is locked and loaded,’ ” Nikki Haley said.

Trump seemed certainly happy with the results and there was mixed information about the strike.

The Pentagon mentioned 40 missiles but Syria said 110 missiles came in their airspace and they shot down 100.

“They lost a lot of equipment. They lost a lot of material, and that’s going to have a significant effect,” Kenneth McKenzie said at the Pentagon.

Trump Supporters

“If he had been a piece of crap from the beginning, it wouldn’t be so bad,” Alex Jones said of Trump. “We’ve made so many sacrifices and now he’s crapping all over us. It makes me sick.”

This could hurt later or it may not but Trump still pledged that he would strike again.

Michael Savage tweeted “We lost. War machine bombs Syria. No evidence Assad did it. Sad warmongers hijacking our nation.”

Savage, a prominent conservative radio host and author showed his disapproval of the attacks.

Another person tweeted  “At least won’t feel bad once Trump gets impeached.”

There was a vote to condemn the strike as a violation of International law but it failed. Russia, Bolivia and China voted to condemn the strike while 12 others voted in favor.

“This is how you want international affairs to be conducted now?” said Russian Ambassador Vassily  Nebenzia. “This is hooliganism in International relations, and not minor hooliganism, given that we’re talking about major nuclear powers.”

Based on the translation of his comments he called the matter hooliganism.

The United States, France and Britain all took part in the airstrike.

The onslaught of the President of the United States of America continued relentlessly. The President already had his hands full dealing with sexual accusations and a recent raid on his lawyer.

Now James Comey’s new book had painted Trump in an even darker light. Comey who was on a tour promoting his book had nothing nice to say.

Trump was compared to a mafia boss and that his ego got in his way. Comey also discussed the conversation he had with Trump about the Hillary Clinton email scandal.

It also relates to the statements he gave during his interview with Senate. He also compared Trump’s leadership to a forest fire that couldn.t be contained.

Comey’s Book

Comey’s book didn’t make its presence felt without rebuttal though. His book met with stiff resistance from the GOP.

The GOP produced a cover of a book aimed at mocking Comey. The review was entitled “Widespread accord for James Comey’s ego.”

The book entitled “A Higher Loyalty” is to be released shortly. In his book Comey wrote “Donald Trump’s presidency threatens much of what is good in this nation.”

“They were about to lead a Country that had been attacked by a foreign adversary, yet they had no questions about what the future Russian threat might be,” Comey writes in his new book.

Raid Worries

The recent raid against Michael Cohen’s office was worrying for Trump and his allies. They felt that the FBI may have recovered something that was vital to them.

“We heard he had some proclivity to make tapes,” said one Trump adviser.  “Now we are wondering, who did he tape? Did he store those someplace where they were actually seized? . . . Did they find his recordings?”

He preferred to remain anonymous due to the ongoing investigation.

“If you are looking for evidence, you can’t do any better than people talking on tape,” said Nick Akerman.

This seemed to indicate that something may have been said that was detrimental to Trump or his allies. If there was nothing to hide, there would be no serious concern about what was found.

It was clear that no one wanted their privacy abused and that was agreeable, but there could be more to the issue.

It would just be a matter of time before anything findings would be released. Mueller was known to take his time and run through all evidence before making his move.

If anything was found, it would surely come to light at some point.

House Speaker Paul Ryan had declared he would be stepping down at the end of the year. He made it clear that he wasn’t seeking re-election.

His reasons were reported to be family related, citing he wanted to spend more time with his family.

His departure could be a turning point in the Republicans plans for this year and after. Ryan played a vital role during the year and some that Trump was in office.

He was vital in many of the decisions made in Congress. His exit from the position he now held was a blow to the Republican Party. It now meant that another would take his post and it could be a Democrat.

This however would have to be decided by vote and two names were already on the cards.

New Speaker

California Rep. Kevin McCarthy and Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise were the ones expected to contest for the position.

It was believed by some that the fight could be a tight one as both men were popular men.

“Steve is the more low-key guy, Kevin is more the big handshake, but they’re equally popular,” said Rep. Peter King. “It’s not like right versus left or a good guy versus a bad guy.”

Whatever the outcome for many Paul Ryan would be missed. He had become well loved by his colleagues.

“Everything we do is coordinated between Sen. McConnell and Senate leadership with the House leadership and obviously the Speaker,” said Senate Republican Whip John Cornyn.

Tough Road Ahead

The belief that the road ahead would be tough was present among GOP leaders.

“It will be tougher to accomplish things if there’s a drawn out leadership race. It would be better if this gets wrapped up in a month,” said one source.

“Anything that creates a little bit of stability and predictability is a good thing. The longer something like this goes on, I think the more distracting it will be,” John Cornyn said.

Others lamented there objection to the decision by Ryan.

“His decision to retire today is not helpful in the overall picture of re-election of a House Republican majority,” Thomas M. Reynolds said.

Reynolds, a former New York congressman who oversaw the National Republican Congressional Committee shared his view on the matter.

He also said “nobody is saying this is over just yet, but there is a very significant change in the dynamic based on his choice to retire.”

Special Counsel Robert Mueller had done something that angered President Trump. He was responsible for the raid on Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was involved as well. He was the one who allowed the FBI to do the raid.

The incident left Trump fuming and others believed Trump would respond with a decision of his own.

Four Senators were now pushing to protect Mueller by the drafting of a bill. This was nothing new as it was attempted early in Mueller’s tenor as Special Counsel.

There was also a report that Trump was considering firing Rosenstein as well. A move like this could affect Mueller who was receiving the assistance of Rosenstein.

Trump’s biggest problem was that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had recused himself from the probe. Trump also had a problem with this since it hindered him from having more done in regards to the investigation’s direction.

Saving Mueller

Republican Sens. Thom Tillis and Lindsey Graham along with Democratic Sens. Chris Coons and Cory Booker are seeking to protect Mueller.

The intention was to introduce a bill that allowed him 10 days to seek an expedited judicial review of a firing.

The information was revealed by a source, but much couldn’t be divulged as the bill was released at the time.

Other Senators believed he won’t be fired but with the President no one really knew.

“I don’t think he’s going to be removed,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “I think he’ll be allowed to finish his job.”

Another Senator had a slightly different view; he felt that firing Mueller could lead to a very big problem.

“There would be serious repercussions,” said Sen. Bob Corker. “I’ve shared with the President what a massive mistake it would be for him to do this. I’ve done that in person.”

“Stand up and say what the President is doing is wrong,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. “Make it clear that firing Mueller or interfering in his investigation crosses a red line.”

Rosenstein Fate

Rosenstein could also find himself without a job, but even though he didn’t receive the same support Mueller did there were efforts to preserve him.

There wasn’t any discussion of a bill of sort but concerns were high about firing him. There was also a concern about Sessions as well.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was asked if the President talked about firing any of these men. She replied in the negative and said “I haven’t had any conversations with him on that.”

Trump was asked why he didn’t fire Mueller and he responded by blaming Rosenstein.

“If you know the person in charge of the investigation, you know about that, Deputy Rosenstein, Rod Rosenstein,” Trump said.

What will Trump next move be, only time will tell?

The Russian probe had become well known for its ability to affect any and every one. The latest drama in the ongoing investigation saw Michael Cohen’s office raided.

Cohen who was once Trump’s personal lawyer reentered his administration by joining his legal team. The Russian probe was looking into fraud and other matters that could lead to charges being brought against him.

Many believed that there was some connection to the President, since Cohen handled many of Trump’s personal matters in the past.

The raid didn’t go without rebuttal as Trump made his disapproval very clear. He was very upset about the incident and the investigations on a whole. He referred to the probe as a witch hunt and thought the raid was unfair.

The Raid

“There is no way that they are looking for things that don’t connect to the President in some way,” Anne Milgram said.

Milgram was a former New Jersey Attorney General. She shared her sentiments on CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

She said “it really is an unbelievable day when you start to think about what is happening, what we are going to see next.”

Analysts felt the FBI had solid evidence that they would raid the office of the attorney of the President.

“We are in pretty treacherous territory here. It’s unprecedented to my knowledge to have the President’s personal attorney raided like this,” said David Gergen. “They must have been able to present evidence that was hugely compelling to take a step like this.”

Trump’s Rebuttal

“It’s a disgrace, it’s, frankly, a real disgrace, it’s an attack on our country in a true sense. It’s an attack on all we stand for,” Trump said.

The President held a briefing at the White House and said that others felt he should fire Mueller.

“Why don’t I just fire Mueller? Well, I think it’s a disgrace what’s going on. We’ll see what happens,” Trump said. “But I think it’s really a sad situation, when you look at what happened. And many people have said, you should fire him.”

Reports indicated that Mueller was responsible for sending the FBI to raid Cohen’s office.

It was believed that if the FBI found nothing it would give Trump the leverage he needed to end the probe.

“I think it’s a bet and they better find something,” said Mike Shields. Shields was a former chief of staff of the Republican National Committee.

The situation at the White House was considered dire by many as confusion reigned. There were concerns over who were hired to help run the Country. There were also concerns by the President about the tactics being used by his staff.

Both of these concerns could be detrimental to the United States of America. The Generals in Trump’s camp could be bad for business. The stalling tactics by some of the White House staff could make Trump either rush a decision or neglect an important one.

Retired Adm. Mike Mullen shared his concerns about the many Generals who have worked at the White House since Trump took office.

Mullen’s Theory

Mullen was once the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

He was concerned about former General John Kelly acting in political matters.

“It’s much more a strongman’s Country than it is a democratic, open, free country,” he said.

He made mentioned of other persons who were Generals who were involved in political matters.

“It is a tough, difficult, political environment,” he said, and “it can be very toxic, and it can destroy people.”

“To see John Kelly — and I’ll be very specific — politicize, you know, the death of his son to support the political outcome for the President was very, very distressing to me,” Mullen said.

Trump Weary

It was reported Trump had grown weary of the tactics by some staffers. The intent of this was to move Trump away from any direction they felt was a problem.

The tactic wasn’t new but Trump recognized that this was a plan to slow down his agenda or anything he had set his mind to.

The hope was the delay would cause him to forget about it, staffers often said it wasn’t ready yet or they needed more time.

Staff at the White House always have a hard time controlling Trump. He was known as one never to stick to a script and that created many problems for him and his staff.

Trump had more than one Chief of Staff since taking office. John Kelly had served the longest of them all, but even he was now looking obsolete.

It was clear that the President didn’t like anyone telling him what to do. Though Kelly had been able to do so from the get go, it didn’t last very long.

Trump may have had enough of these tactics and any attempt to slow him down could backfire. Trump was known to fire people swiftly and this may just continue to be the way he deals with any delays.

Former General John Kelly was once seen as the man to keep President Trump under control. There were great expectations when he first became the Chief of Staff.

In his early tenure as Chief of Staff, it seemed as if it was all working out. However that was short lived as Trump soon returned to his old ways.

Despite Kelly wielding some level of power he was eventually unable keep things under wraps. These days Kelly had less of an influence over the President, if any at all.

It was reported that Trump even asked other staff if they thought Kelly was doing a good job.

Mighty Have Fallen

There was a well-known saying “how the mighty have fallen” which could be applied to Kelly and many who have once been part of Trump’s cabinet.

The saying however was more striking for Kelly who at one stage seemingly had great power. He was not only in charge of staff at the White House but the President listened to him.

Now that had all changed and Kelly was now in a position he never hoped to find himself.

“Everybody in the orbit of Donald Trump gets sucked in and tarnished or destroyed,” said Chris Whipple, author of “The Gatekeepers,” a history of White House chiefs of staff. “Kelly has been tarnished, no doubt about it.”

One of the issues that frustrated Kelly was how rump just blatantly fired those he considered obsolete.

It was reported that even among others at the White House he had lost favor.

John’s Dilemma

“When you lose that power,” said Leon Panetta, “you become a virtual White House intern, being told where to go and what to do.”

Panetta, a Democratic former White House Chief of Staff was seemingly sharing his experience.

“At the top, you have someone who consistently does not tell the truth,” said James K. Glassman. “That’s a signal to the people below him that they don’t have to tell the truth either, that this is the way we conduct Government — we lie when we have to, we mistreat people when we have to, we humiliate them.”

Glassman was the founding Executive Director of the George W. Bush Institute.

It was said that by a source that Trump “doesn’t like a lot of the stuff he has done. He often gets angry and says, ‘Who does this guy think he is?’ But Kelly has a longer chance of surviving because Trump respects him.”

Kelly often talked about resigning according to some sources. It was believed that it was just a matter of time before something happened.

There are reports in the media that President Trump may have finally met his match. It was said that Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avanetti may be one such person.

Avanetti was considered to be a threat because of his style.

“He’s a dangerous lawyer,” said Brian Panish who worked with Avanetti. He felt this way “because he is so sharp, quick and fearless.”

Another person who could be a threat to Trump was Stormy Daniels. She seemed fearless despite threats from Trump’s lawyer and an unknown man.

This could all change now since Avanetti may have found the person who allegedly threatened Daniels.

Announcement

Avanetti claimed he would soon be making an announcement. This was all based on a tweet that he made on twitter.

“Expect a major announcement in the coming days regarding our efforts to identify the thug who threatened Ms. Clifford in Las Vegas in 2011 to “leave Trump alone” while making reference to her little girl. You can run but you can’t hide. #thugsearch #seriousconsequences #basta”

The lawyer said that Daniels was threatened one day while leaving the gym. At that time she had her young daughter in the vehicle she her.

“Leave Trump alone. Forget the story,” the person allegedly said. “That’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom.”

Lawyer Power

“Among trial lawyers, Avenatti is regarded as extraordinarily tenacious and aggressive,” said Brian Kabateck. Kabateck , the incoming president of the Los Angeles Bar Association felt Avanetti was truly a threat.

“He may be the perfect foil for Trump,” he said, “because he understands Trump and is in Trump’s head.”

Another person Louise Sunshine said “I think he’s sort of got Donald figured out.”

Avanetti once raced cars and compared that to being a lawyer.

“Once you’ve driven 190 miles per hour in the pouring rain, in the middle of the night, down the Mulsanne Straight with prototype cars whizzing by you at 240-plus miles per hour … compared to that, what I’m doing right now is a warm-up lap,” he said.

David Nold compared Avanetti to Trump. “They sure seem to have a very similar business style,” he said. “Unpaid bills. Taxes owed. Bombastic to a fault when it comes to the facts.”

He replied “any claim that problems arose as a result of anything I did or did not do personally is ridiculous and baseless,” he wrote. He said Nold was “an embarrassment to the legal profession.”

It seemed this was a man who shouldn’t be crossed; however Trump was unlike any President before him. We may just have a match up on our hands.

Michael Cohen was once President Trump’s personal attorney. He was recently reinstated to that position after Trump faced multiple legal challenges.

He has faced a barrage of allegations from various women and concerning the Russian interfering in the 2016 Election.

Trump had now said that Michael Cohen was the one to speak to regarding any payments to Stormy Daniels. He said he was unaware of any such transaction taking place.

This statement placed Cohen in a position where he stood alone on this particular statement he made about paying Daniels. What was noteworthy about the statement was the fact that Trump waited until now to respond. The payment of $130,000 to Daniels was released to the public for a while now and wasn’t anything recent.

Cohen also was on Robert Mueller’s radar for his connection to Trump during his political campaign. Mueller believed that Cohen played a role in Trump’s connection to the Russians; he was Trump’s personal lawyer.

Mueller Query

Cohen now found himself in a tough position as Mueller was looking into his role with Russia. He was responsible for bringing a letter to Trump from a Russian developer.

It was reported that it referred to a Moscow hotel deal while Trump was running for the Presidency.

This meant that Cohen faced multiple pressures from various entities. It was hard enough he had to deal with being thrown under the bus by his client the President.

Now he could find himself another casualty of the Russian probe, which had already convicted other persons.

On His Own

Cohen now stood alone about any payments made to Stormy Daniels. Daniels accused Trump of sleeping with her and seeking to silence her.

Trump responded to questions about making a payment to Daniels. This was the first time he had publicly faced questions in the matter. Trump said he had no idea such a deal had taken place.

The reporter asked “then why did Michael Cohen make [the payment], if there was no truth to her allegations?”

“You’ll have to ask Michael Cohen,” Trump said. “Michael’s my attorney, and you’ll have to ask Michael.”

Another reporter chimed in “do you know where he got the money to make that payment?”

“No,” Trump replied. “I don’t know.”

That reporter queried: “Did you ever set up a fund of money that he could pull from?”

Trump ignored this particular question which to some may signify that he did have such a fund.

Responding to Trump’s comment Daniel’s lawyer Michael Avanetti said Trump finally cracked.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller was intent on gathering as much Intel as possible. His efforts showed he would pursue anyone that he thought were tied to Russia.

He was set on questioning anyone he could get to; only those out of his reach were presently guaranteed exemption.

Mueller now had set his sights upon George Nader who was associated with the ruler of U.A.E. Nader worked closely with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan of Abu Dhabi. Nader was said to accompany the Prince on many occasions.

Mueller had also been questioning Russian oligarchs in relation to the claim of Russian interference. It was believed that Mueller may have some level of information, but continued to search for further evidence that may help.

Another story that had received attention was that it paid to co-operate with Mueller and his investigation.

It Pays To Play

The theory placed before us was that it pays to play. Play along with the rules set out by Mueller and his team.

Names like George Papadopoulos and Michael Flynn come to mind. These men found the going much easier after pleading guilty. They made investigator’s job much easier and benefited from being compliant.

“There’s no question that it’s in the Government’s interest to take what steps they can to show that cooperating is in the interest of the defendant,” said Daniel Petalas, a former federal prosecutor. “A basic principle of plea bargaining is that you have to make it worth it to the defendant to admit liability in a criminal matter.”

“There is a societal interest, frankly, in having people cooperate with prosecutors because often the government only can know what’s happened based on documentary evidence and witnesses that it speaks with,” said Sharon McCarthy, a former federal prosecutor in New York. “But insiders who can give insight into conversations and planning and things like that are crucial to being able to make cases.”

Mueller Tactics

“Prosecutors and investigators like the element of surprise when you can get more instinctive (and often truthful) responses,” said Daniel Goldman, a former federal prosecutor, in a text. Mueller’s team is using search warrants to access electronic devices and, Goldman added, “surprise is crucial for those searches because you don’t want anyone to wipe their phone.”

Mueller team still continued to follow the money trail as it digs into any fraudulent acts. It was believed that the money trail could also lead to whether Russia financed anything related to interference during election time.

The Russian probe certainly showed no signs of ending soon. It looked as though we could expect to see a lot more of persons becoming persons of interest.

President Trump was known for doing the unthinkable. He had done something that was never attempted by any other President.

His Military was required to defend its border along the stretch of Mexico till Trump could have his border wall. This was the latest in a series of comments made by the President in relation to immigration policy.

He made an attempt at getting the funding he needed but that fell through. He wanted $25 billion but received a meager $1.6 billion.

Trump also vowed that he would soon be taking action on immigration.

Military Takeover

There was security for the border which was run by the border patrol under the U.S. Customs. Trump however wasn’t pleased with the job being done as many Mexicans found their way into America.

“We’re going to be doing things militarily. Until we can have a wall and proper security, we’re going to be guarding our border with the military,” Trump said.

He considered the move a big step, the question was in the right direction or the opposite?

The President didn’t go into any details on how this would work leaving it to speculation at this time.

Another question that arose was what type of troops would be used. In some circumstances the National Guard took care of the borders of America and helped with Martial law. It was a possibility they could be used.

Trump’s Impatience

It was reported that Trump was very frustrated with the number of persons crossing into America. It was recently reported about the caravan which was being used by immigrants to enter the U.S.

A caravan was recently stopped in its tracks with mostly Honduras migrants. It was estimated that about 1100 persons could have been on the train.

“I said (to Mexican officials), ‘I hope you’re going to tell that caravan not to get up to the border.’ And I think they’re doing that because, as of 12 minutes ago, it was all being broken up, “Trump said.

It was clear that if Trump had his way he would have that wall up in a hurry. His biggest resistance comes from those who refuse to support such a large spending bill on a wall of that magnitude.

Trump had few days prior said that the Military would fund the wall. Now in just a few days since making such a claim he had now said the Military would protect the border.

Frustration was certainly mounting and was evident in that Trump was going all out to have America secured from unnecessary entry.

Roger Stone had made himself a target of the Russian probe by making a joke. He had said that he had met with Julian Assange.

Assange who founded WikiLeaks founder was currently sought by America for his release of confidential information.

This claim wasn’t taken lightly and saw Stone facing many questions in regards to what he said. Stone even claimed that he dined with Assange during august 4 2016.

WikiLeaks was a very controversial website which was well known for controversy. They were responsible for the release of secretive documents during 2016 Elections.

Stone Claims

Stone tweeted “Hillary lies about Russian Involvement in DNC hack -Julian Assange is a hero.” It was during this time he claimed to have dined with Assange.

He then claimed that he was kidding and made a statement to Chuck Todd.

“No, actually, I don’t think so because for it to be a treasonous act, Assange would have to be probably a Russian asset and WikiLeaks would have to be a Russian front, and I do not believe that is the case,” Stone said.

Former Federal Prosecutor Patrick Cotter also zeroed in on the situation.

“It is unlikely that any one contact between someone that could be credibly connected to the Trump campaign and someone working for or with the Russians would, alone, establish the coordination,” Cotter said, adding: “The more pieces of credible evidence that the special prosecutor can find of connections between people on Trump’s team and the Russians — even if the connections go through intermediaries like Stone and Assange — the stronger the overall case.”

Russian Probe

This had put Stone in the limelight since the exposing of emails was part of the issue regarding the Russian probe.

Shortly after the election was finished Trump wanted an inquiry into the claims made against Hillary Clinton.

It wasn’t long before those close to Trump were facing the gauntlet as well. Claims arose that embers of Trump’s cabinet met with Russians.

This saw the entrance of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Almost one year later the probe still continued with many casualties along the way.

Stone made himself a target by what he said and even if what he claimed before was a joke, there would be a thorough investigation into the matter.

Anything related to Russian interference would certainly be assessed fully. There was a dire need to see this inquiry come to an end.

At this time the results seemed far from what investigators seek, whatever the motive may be, if any it was a long way from being finished.
