Mueller’s office disputes BuzzFeed report that Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress – CNNPolitics

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s office disputed an explosive story from BuzzFeed News as “not accurate” Friday night, after the news outlet reported the President had directed his personal attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress, for which Cohen was later prosecuted.

“BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony are not accurate,” said Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller’s office, in a statement.

Trump offers immigration compromise to end partial shutdown; Dems cool to offer | Fox News

President Trump, in a televised White House address Saturday, offered Democrats a compromise package on immigration in an effort to end the nearly monthlong partial government shutdown — although some prominent Democrats were dismissing the olive branch as a “non-starter” before Trump even spoke.

Trump announced that he was prepared to back a three-year extension of protections for 700,000 immigrants who came to the country illegally as children and were shielded from deportation under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. This, in exchange for the $5.7 billion he has requested for a barrier on the southern border with Mexico.

Chris Christie accuses Jared Kushner of political retaliation in new book.

In truth, they never liked each other to begin with.  Christie put Kushner’s father behind federal bars years ago.  And, Jared never liked him.  Christie did try to make amends with Jared to a point.  But, at the end of the day, Christie’s point was he was just doing his job.

Pelosi only gives Trump a bigger audience by canceling State of the Union

In a nutshell, the United States speaker the house does not have the power to specifically cancel a state of the union. But she does have the power to prevent the president of the United States from addressing the nation in the House of Representatives.

Either way, it seems a little ludicrous that Pelosi would do this in the midst of a shutdown. To me, it seems logical that you would want to hear from the president of the United States especially in the middle of a shutdown.

Democratic 2020 hopefuls pay lip service to the left. Don’t be fooled | Bhaskar Sunkara | Opinion | The Guardian

It’s a framing that’s been everywhere over the past two years: the Resistance v Donald Trump. By some definitions that “resistance” even includes people like Mitt Romney and George W Bush. By almost all definitions it encompasses mainstream Democrats, such as the likely presidential hopefuls Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, and Kirsten Gillibrand.

In Historic Move Trump Administration to Use Indeed.com for Key WH Positions

Yes this is sarcasm, but it also seems surreal that in only two years the Trump administration has lost so many individuals in key administrative positions.

Raj Shah Out As White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary.

Here’s a list – rather long at that – of people who have left the administration for one reason or another.
