Bombshell: Trump Makes Fresh Attempt to Obstruct Russia Investigation

Bombshell: Trump Makes Fresh Attempt to Obstruct Russia Investigation

Count me in the camp of those who believe the president is an ill-tempered, unqualified and at times unsafe leader of the free world.

Senate and House Republicans claim that they're trying to help Trump get his wall money, but they're hesitant to commit to how far they're willing to go.

Since he took office, Congress has been cucking President Trump left and right, failing to pass any significant piece of his legislative agenda and really underscoring what a bad political leader he is.

To date this year, Congress has lived up to its do-nothing reputation, with not-too-many major legislative accomplishments; Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch's confirmation, benefits for veterans, and various regulation rollbacks are perhaps the most notable exceptions.

In recent weeks, the president has had tough words for and taken sometimes thinly veiled shots at Arizona's two Republican senators: John McCain and Jeff Flake. "It is very Russia-heavy; there is no doubt about it", says Michael Sulmeyer, project director of the Belfer Center Cyber Security Project at the Harvard Kennedy School and a former cyber policy official in the Defense Department.

Trump called Tillis on August 7, according to the report, a day after Tillis said on Fox News that there was "no question" the bill was partly directed at Trump.

Politico's Josh Dawsey and Elana Schor reported that two days before Trump's verbal brawl with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnel, Trump called Tillis, signaled he was "unhappy" with the bill and said he didn't want it to pass.

"Senator Mitch McConnell said I had "excessive expectations", but I don't think so".

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) told MSNBC that she's not sure Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee for president in 2020.

While some Republicans stand up and denounce what Trump says on a case -by-case basis, Vance says it's not enough. He was even more animated about what he intimated was the Senate leader's refusal to protect him from investigations of Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to Republicans briefed on the conversation.

"There's no desire to get into it" with Trump, Piper said of congressional Republicans. They'd also like to accomplish tax reform, but Trump didn't mention any of these priorities at his rally. "We're going to have our wall", the president said.

Democrats are hoping to similarly tie House Republicans to President Donald Trump and current Speaker Paul D. Ryan. Trump called Flake "toxic". "I will never stop - one vote", Mr Trump said.

Meanwhile, lawmakers and analysts acknowledge time is running out for Republicans and, moreover, for the leadership in Congress and on Pennsylvania Avenue. "I felt the public option was the way", said Space, who is running for state auditor in OH this cycle.

But Brian Walsh, a Republican strategist who previously worked for Senate Republicans' campaign arm, called Trump introducing the idea of a shutdown "politically unsafe", and overall, described the rally Tuesday night as "counterproductive".
