Anticipating that Special Counsel Robert Mueller will ask to interview President Donald Trump, the president's legal team is discussing a range of potential options for the format, including written responses to questions in lieu of a formal sit-down, according to three people familiar with the matter. read more

Donald Trump's former chief strategist Steve Bannon has described the Trump Tower meeting between the president's son and a group of Russians during the 2016 election campaign as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic", according to an explosive new book seen by the Guardian. Bannon, speaking to author Michael Wolff, warned that the investigation into alleged collusion with the Kremlin will focus on money laundering and predicted: "They're going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV.

Michael Schmidt of the New York Times held an impromptu interview with President Trump at Mar-a-Lago yesterday, and there are takes galore lighting up the internet. Probably all of them are accurate, but for my money the main takeaway isn't something you can illustrate with an excerpt from the interview. But I'll try anyway: read more

PolitiFact: A mountain of evidence points to a single fact: Russia meddled in the U.S. presidential election of 2016. In both classified and public reports, U.S. intelligence agencies have said Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered actions to interfere with the election. Those actions included the cyber-theft of private data, the placement of propaganda against particular candidates, and an overall effort to undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process. See related rulings Members of Congress, both Democrats and Republicans, have held open and closed door hearings to probe Russia's actions. The congressional investigations are ongoing. Facebook, Google and Twitter have investigated their own networks, and their executives have concluded -- in some cases after initial foot-dragging -- that Russia used the online platforms in attempts to influence the election. After all this, one man keeps saying it didn't even happen. read more

'That being said, it is not right to call someone a liar (these Senators) with a disputed statement that they claim not to have witnessed.'...Avigdore

You are misrepresenting (lying about) what they said. They did not claim they did not witness it. You are making that up. That is a lie. There is nothing in the statement to support this position.

Regardless of our opinions, regardless of the likelihood that President Trump did call those countries ---------, there are still 3 options of which we can't prove:...Avigdore

I dont need to prove anything. Senator Graham and Senator Durbin, United States called the BLOTUS' denial a lie. Both agree he said it. I choose to believe them because their statement is believable and credible based upon their past statements, and and based on BLOTUS' past lies. Trump told 2,000 demonstrable lies in his first year in office. This deprives him of receiving 'benefit of doubt' when reliable sources dispute his word.

"He said it where they could hear (they'd be liars), he said it where they couldn't hear (they said nothing wrong), or he didn't say it(they said nothing wrong. Yes, they are professional communicators. If they say 'No, Trump didn't say that', but he did outside of their awareness and a tape shows up, they would be crucified, and you know it. They allowed that he may have said it, but claim to have not witnessed it."...Avigdore

No, they did not 'claim not to have witnessed it'! That is Bullcrap. Now you are lying, Avigdore. They claimed not to be able to recall it. That is a totally different statement than you pulled out of your rectum in your fanciful spin.

If you are asked what General Patton said when he left the Philippines, and say "I dont recall", you have not stated that he didnt say "I shall return". Here, you are implying that "I dont recall" means "He didnt say that in my presence" which is pure unadulterated Bullcrap.

"If you want to call their wording weasel-y, that's certainly true, but to call it a lie is an unproven claim."

Again, Bullcrap!

When your Commanding Officer lies to his crew and the public 2000 times in 1 year, and multiple respected Ships Officers tell you he said something shocking, which reflects poorly upon him, and he denies saying it, you are a fool to believe the Commander, and are a fool to believe the sycophants who were present and say "I dont recall".

You have every reason to believe the proven lying liar is, in fact, a shameless lying liar, for he has proven himself, 2,000 times, to be a shameless liar.

Trump has earned his reputation of being a shameless liar. You are a fool to believe him and a bigger fool to defend those who pretend not to recall his weak as koolaid denial, and you are a fool to pretend his word should be taken for truth, and you are a fool to believe it when cowardly sycophants who were in the room say "I dont recall".

You are every bit as weaselly as are the "I cant recall (what happened in my presence yesterday)" lying liars.

They were all in the meeting.

There were but 3 possible defensable responses:
#1...No Comment.
#2, Yes, he said that.
#3...No. he did not say that.

"I don't recall" is a lie. All your "Goatman" Tap Dancing samatic bullcrap is bullcrap.

The real scandal for the Republican Party is the Lying Liars who were in the Oval Office when the --- hole talk went down, and and who answered "I don't recall" when asked if Trump said it.

Really, Senator Cotton, you don't Recall?

The meeting had only been the day before the specious denial. Not recalling the POTUS calling other countries --- Holes in an Oval Office Official meeting on the previous day, seems like a highly unlikely event to forget; seems like it would be an event which would be quite memorable for much longer that 24 hours. But you, Senator Cotton, you don't recall?

Really? Don't recall?

That is a big obvious lie.

You recall very well.

Lindsey Graham recalled. Dick Durbin recalled.The meeting had been less that 24 hours from the question. You do remember them both being there, right Senator Cotton? Are you demented like Trump? Seriously, you cant remember one of the most despicable impolitic statements ever uttered in an oval office bipartisan sit-down with the POTUS, and you cant recall the event?

You are a liar Sen. Cotton.

Cotton is too cowardly to admit the truth, to stupid to just say "no comment", and too crooked to choose to do anything but toss out a cheap, unbelievable lie to the public, just like Trump does on a near hourly basis.

This "I dont recall" really makes Jeff Sessions "I don't recall meeting all those Russians" answer appear more likely to be a bald faced lie too, doesn't it? This casual, blatant, obvious lie, based on the old Republican chestnut "I dont recall" canard, is obviously phony; Transparently false. Cotton's "I don't recall" lie cheapens that response from a politician as a legit, believable answer.

The Trumpification of the Republican Party seems now to becomplete.

Trump serial lying POTUS is the Republican Party, and the lying Republican Party is the Party of Donald Trump. Liars all.
