Today is October 4, and here are the 6 stories I am watching.
1-Trump to send Pelosi a letter ‘daring’ her to hold impeachment inquiry vote
The White House will send House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., a letter on Friday “daring” her to hold a vote on Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into President Trump. The letter will say the White House won’t comply with the Democrats’ investigation because Pelosi hasn’t codified the probe with a formal vote on the House floor. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., sent a similar letter to Pelosi on Thursday, taking issue with reports that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., was limiting Republicans’ ability to ask questions during Thursday’s testimony by former U.S. envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker, who resigned last week. Pelosi shot back at McCarthy, saying that “existing rules of the House provide House committees with full authority to conduct investigations for all matters under their jurisdiction.”
DML: Trump’s strategy is to dump so much gasoline on this fire that the heat forces everyone to turn their heads away.
2-Adam Schiff-Ukraine connection comes under scrutiny
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who has played a leading role in investigating the Trump-Ukraine scandal, is facing questions about his own connection to a Soviet-born businessman who has raised money for his campaign and whose company has received lucrative defense contracts from Ukraine’s government. That man is Igor Pasternak, founder and CEO of Worldwide Aeros Corp., which makes blimps for military and commercial customers, including the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense. In 2013, Pasternak hosted a fundraiser in Washington for Schiff, who later came to embrace a strong stance in support of the U.S. sending military aid to Ukraine during its conflict with Russia.
DML: Lets be honest, we all think Schiff is a slimeball, but aren’t they all?Truth is there is not a public official in DC without some sort of tie to a wealthy dude in either Russia, Ukraine, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, China, Iran…. you get the point.
3-Documents heighten scrutiny on Biden-Ukraine dealings, indicate Hunter Biden may have made ‘millions’
A batch of newly released documents, including court filings as well as notes from interviews conducted by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, raised more questions about how much money former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter made while serving on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas firm at the center of the controversy, with one estimate putting the figure in the “millions.”
DML: This is as shocking as someone telling me the sun will set in the West this evening. If you’re a dirty Democrat willing to sell out your country, you don’t do it for $500. You do it for $5,000,000.
4-Kurt Volker described Trump’s team as “infighting”
You won’t read this anywhere else, and I will speak about it today at 10:30am on DML LIVE (TeamDML.com), but Kurt Volker on the day of Trump’s swearing in (January 2017) was traveling on the Amtrak Acela train. He was sitting in front of me. While on the phone he told the ambassador he was speaking to: “The entire team is infighting, and Bannon is to blame.”
DML: That information is about as useful as me telling you my lawn needs to be cut, but at least you’re in the know.
5-Chinese woman caught at Mar-a-Lago with malware was apparently asked to target Clintons: docs
A Chinese businesswoman who was convicted of trespassing at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida earlier this year had been urged by her handler to target other famous figures including the Clintons and billionaire businessman Warren Buffett, court documents say. Yujing Zhang, 33, who is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 22, was caught by Secret Service agents with troves of technology embedded with malware and thousands of dollars in cash after she claimed that she was at Trump’s prestigious club to attend a “United Nations friendship event” that had apparently been canceled. Her bizarre behavior and backstory led to suspicions that she was a Chinese government spy, but she was not charged with espionage or related crimes. Zhang apparently purchased a $20,000 travel package from Li Weitian, also known as Charles Lee, who advertised tickets on the Chinese social media site WeChat promising access to events across the U.S. to meet prominent political and business figures. Upon learning that the event at Mar-a-Lago had been canceled, Lee tried to convince Zhang to attend another event on Wall Street in New York City, text messages between the pair released by the South Florida court Thursday revealed. Bill and Hillary Clinton were scheduled to be there.
DML: This is more fake news. The truth is this Chinese woman had terrible back pain and trouble sleeping. She read online that Trump is using DML PURE CBD to curb his pain from all the liberal reaming he gets daily. She knows I won’t sell to spys, so she tried breaking into Mar-a-largo and stealing Trump’s supply of DML PURE CBD, which by the way I charged him double for because the border remains open. You on the other hand, will be charged fairly to feel great again. Go to DMLcbd.com and begin your journey to feel great again. Or skip it, and instead get a tattoo on your buttock that reads: MADE IN CHINA and continue to feel terrible. Go to DMLcbd.com
6-De Niro drops more F-bombs
A former employee at Robert De Niro’s production company slammed “The Irishman” actor with a federal lawsuit Thursday, claiming he harassed her and discriminated against her for being a woman – then retaliated against her when she told him of her plans to take legal action, according to bombshell court papers. In one example, De Niro allegedly went ballistic on the woman, calling her a “spoiled brat” in an explicit voicemail when she did not answer his phone call, according to the suit. “How dare you f—— disrespect me?,” he said in the voicemail, in which he also told her: “You’re f—— history.”
DML: Again, more fake news. What happened was De Niro tried to order from DMLcbd.com because he was told by other freaks in Hollywierd that DML PURE CBD is better than snorting cocaine when wanting to feel great again. So, De Niro tried ordering from DMLcbd.com. He failed because I have set a blocker on the website: DO NOT SELL TO ROBERT DE NIRO, BARRACK OBAMA, HILLARY CLINTON, AOC, ALEC BALDWIN or DON LEMON. I plan to add Kim Jung Un tomorrow. But you can buy there today. DMLcbd.com
