Today is October 15, and the stories I am following are below.
1-Bolton in the middle
Fiona Hill, the former senior director for Russian and Eurasian affairs, told lawmakers investigating possible impeachment charges against President Trump on Monday that a July meeting with Ukrainian and U.S. officials about unspecified investigations left her and John Bolton, the former national security adviser, so concerned that he directed her to alert a lawyer in the National Security Council. The meeting in question took place July 10, a little more than two weeks before President Trump’s controversial call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky. Both Bolton and Hill, who were present at the meeting, had concerns about the conversation, she testified.
DML: The countdown begins… how long will it be until Trump uses his Twitter to destroy Bolton.
2-Democratic presidential primary debate
A really big stage is set for the fourth round of Democrats’ presidential primary debate Tuesday night. Twelve candidates have qualified, meeting the polling and fundraising criteria. That means the showdown tonight will be the largest in presidential primary history, topping the 11 Republicans who faced off in a primary debate in September 2015.
DML: The lefty radicals who can’t find their buttock with both hands are former Vice President Joe Biden; Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey; South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg; former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro; Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii; Sens. Kamala Harris of California and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota; former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas; Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont; businessman and environmental advocate Tom Steyer; Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts; and tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang who I bet is willing to pay you $2,000 to tune in.
3-Trump imposes sanctions on Turkey
President Trump on Monday authorized sanctions and raised steel tariffs on Turkey and threatened more severe financial penalties if Ankara continued its military offensive in northern Syria launched the president decided to withdraw U.S. troops from the region more than a week ago. Trump also urged Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to negotiate a peaceful end to the violence. In addition, the president announced, U.S. troops in northeastern Syria will be withdrawn from the country as planned and redeployed “in the region to monitor the situation and prevent a repeat of 2014,” when the Islamic State made major territorial gains.
DML: So Trump helps start this mess, and now wants to spearhead efforts to end it all. Is this crazy or am I missing something?
4-Trump mulls idea of lawsuit against CNN
President Trump on Monday floated a lawsuit threat against CNN over reports that the network’s president, Jeff Zucker, launched an internal bias campaign to undermine his presidency. In a tweet posted Monday evening, Trump said, “’Project Veritas-Obtained Undercover Videos Highlight Jeff Zucker’s (@CNN) Campaign To Destroy Trump. Videos Reveal @CNN’s BIAS!’ @TuckerCarlson @FoxNews Does this sound like a good, or even great, lawsuit?” The president’s latest gripe with CNN comes after conservative activist group Project Veritas published undercover recordings from an alleged “whistleblower” that capture CNN employees casually confirming the network’s anti-Trump bias and show Zucker telling top news executives to focus solely on impeachment even at the expense of other important news.
DML: The CNN bias against Trump isn’t anything new, but a lawsuit never stands a chance unless we all sue every news network in the country. The world of news has gone insane.
5- Megyn Kelly to return to Fox News?
Kelly will appear on Fox News Wednesday evening with Tucker Carlson. This will mark her first interview since leaving NBC.
DML: This is no chance interview. Megyn is no longer a news maker, so why have her on? Make no mistake this is strategic. The Murdoch family loves Megyn Kelly, and I am willing to bet all the money in Trump’s pocket that she returns to Fox News before the 2020 election. She will have to take a ton of DML PURE CBD to help relieve the pain from the backlash she gets if Trump loses 2020. The Fox audience will blame her entirely. Don’t be in the sort of pain that could strike Megyn, start using DML PURE CBD today and you too can feel great again. DMLcbd.com
