Flynn pleads guilty to lying to FBI about conversations with Russia's ambassador

Mike Flynn flipped: pleads guilty to lying to FBIFormer Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty Friday to "willfully and knowingly" making "false, fictitious and fraudulent statements" to the FBI about conversations with Russia's ambassador.

In court Friday morning, Flynn's only comments were to answer yes and no to questions from the judge.
He is the first official of President Donald Trump's campaign and the fourth connected to his campaign to be charged as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between the Russian government and members of Trump's team, as well as potential obstruction of justice and financial crimes.
TVNL Comments:  This is the first card to fall in the fragile House of Trump.  Flynn is the key to the whole Trump clan: Donald, Don Jr., Jared and Ivanka. Fun time ahead.

Trump Pressed Top Republicans to End Senate Russia Inquiry

Senate Intel CommitteePresident Trump over the summer repeatedly urged senior Senate Republicans, including the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, to end the panel’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, according to a half dozen lawmakers and aides. Mr. Trump’s requests were a highly unusual intervention from a president into a legislative inquiry involving his family and close aides.

Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina, the intelligence committee chairman, said in an interview this week that Mr. Trump told him that he was eager to see an investigation that has overshadowed much of the first year of his presidency come to an end.


Psychiatrists warn about Trump's mental state

Psychiatrists warn about Trmps mental stateI am the editor of “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President.” We represent a much larger number of concerned mental health professionals who have come forward to warn against the president's psychological instability and the dangers it poses. We now number in the thousands.

We are currently witnessing more than his usual state of instability — in fact, a pattern of decompensation: increasing loss of touch with reality, marked signs of volatility and unpredictable behavior, and an attraction to violence as a means of coping. These characteristics place our country and the world at extreme risk of danger.

New documents: Trump paid over $1 million to settle labor lawsuit

New documents show Trump paid $1m to settle labor suit

President Trump paid out more than $1 million in the late 1990s to a group of Polish workers in the country illegally who demolished the building that would eventually be replaced by Trump Tower in Manhattan, according to recently unsealed documents.

The workers in 1980 received as little as $4 per hour, and worked 12-hour shifts without gloves, hard hats or masks to demolish the Bonwit Teller building on Fifth Avenue, The New York Times reported Monday.

Trump testified that he did not remember the Polish workers being on the job.

TVNL Comment: Trump, in one of his many narcissistic moments, claimed he had the best memory of anyone in the world.  Now, he cannot remember.  Yes he can.  He just lies.

Judge awards Trump administration victory over consumer agency head

Mick Mulvaney gets to head consumer protection agencyThe Trump administration has notched up a significant victory in its battle over the future of consumer protection in the US after a federal judge sided with the White House by refusing to block the president’s choice of the budget director Mick Mulvaney as acting head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

US district judge Timothy Kelly declined on Tuesday to impose an injunction on Trump’s appointment of Mulvaney, who is a leading opponent of pro-consumer regulations, to lead the government watchdog. The ruling came in a lawsuit brought by Leandra English, who had been given the job of interim director of the bureau by its outgoing chief Richard Cordray.
