While Workers Get Crumbs, GOP Tax Scam Analysis Details $25 Billion ‘Bonanza’ for Big Oil article from Common Dreams. –
The dubious details of Trump’s fraudulent tax reform scam are becoming abundantly clear:
“The oil and gas industry benefited to the tune of billions of dollars from the Trump tax cut bill… And you didn’t.”
That’s how the Center for Biological Diversity responded to a new analysis published Tuesday, which shows how the fossil fuel industry has saved $25 billion so far—”with many more billionaires more to come”—from the Republican tax plan signed by President Donald Trump in December.
Antonia Juhasz at Pacific Standard reviewed 2017 Securities and Exchange Commission filings by 17 American oil and gas companies, “looking at the largest companies in production, refining, and pipelines that also clearly specified the impacts of the Tax Act in their result.”
Confirming reports that the new tax code has “supercharged the oil industry,” she found that “it is the oil and gas industry, including companies that backed the presidency of Trump and whose former executives and current boosters now populate it, that are among the tax bill’s largest and most long-lasting financial beneficiaries.”…”

Trump attack unleashes oppo against mueller article from Politico. –
What happens when the minority of minions foolish enough to support you start trying to save your profoundly corrupt, ignorant ass – albeit foolishly and to no avail:
“When President Donald Trump lashed out against Robert Mueller by name earlier this month, the president’s supporters sprang into action—treating the chief Russia investigator to political campaign-style opposition research.
Within hours, the Drudge Report featured a story blaming Mueller, the special counsel leading the Justice Department’s Russia probe, for the FBI’s clumsy investigation into the 2001 anthrax attacks when Mueller ran the bureau. The independent pro-Trump journalist Sara Carter posted a story charging that Mueller, as a federal prosecutor in Boston in the mid-1980s, had covered up the FBI’s dealings with the Mafia informant Whitey Bulger. Carter was soon discussing her findings in prime time with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
Meanwhile, Trump supporters on Twitter circulated video of testimony Mueller gave to Congress ahead of the 2003 Iraq War in which he endorsed the view, later proven false, that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction.
To some, the barrage looked coordinated among pro-Trump allies and media outlets, a concerted effort to tarnish Mueller’s reputation as part of a political strategy to undermine, or even eventually fire, the Russia investigator…”

CNN legal analyst reveals how Michael Cohen’s poorly drafted NDA could lead to Trump’s criminal prosecution article from The Raw Story. –
It’s a good thing our self-declared genius only hires the best people to work for him:
“In a Wednesday panel discussion on CNN, attorney and legal analyst Page Pate walked through the reason President Donald Trump might be in trouble when it comes to the Stormy Daniels case.
“It is certainly an aggressive move to go ahead and file a motion with a federal judge to see if they will order the president and Michael Cohen to submit to a deposition,” he explained. “But I do think he has a good legal argument for it. This particular agreement does contain an arbitration clause.”
He went on to explain that in 99 percent of the arbitration clauses in contracts, judges uphold he contract. This case, however, is different.
“I think this arbitration clause and this entire nondisclosure agreement was so poorly drafted that now Stormy Daniels’ legal team does have a solid legal argument that there was never any deal in place,” Pate continued. “That is an issue that a federal judge has to pass on before the case is sent to arbitration. So, yes, now that there’s an issue for the federal judge, it is realistic and understandable to request some limited discovery, including depositions of the people who supposedly were parties to this agreement.”…”

Why Twitter-Happy President Trump Hasn’t Tweeted About Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal article from People. –
Our Twitter tyrant has been silent about these women because his nuts are in a grinder and he knows he’s totally screwed:
“President Donald Trump has never been shy about name-checking his adversaries on Twitter — until now.
As porn star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal recently gave wide-ranging interviews describing alleged sexual encounters with Trump in 2006, the president has remained uncharacteristically quiet on his favorite social media platform.
According to The New York Times, that’s because the president appears to be heeding the warnings of his advisers, who have cautioned him that tweeting or speaking out about McDougal or Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, would only add fuel to the already headline-dominating stories.
But behind closed doors at the White House, the president is “eager” to defend himself against the allegations he insists are false, sources close to Trump say. The New York Times adds that Trump has privately complained about Daniels to allies and some aides…”

Criminality, madness, bad taste and danger in the Trump White House article from Salon. –
The felonious trash that our fraudulent Orange con man surrounds himself with coupled with his profoundly corrupt tendencies are bad news for this country:
“I have accumulated three stacks of notebooks sitting to the left of my keyboard on my desk that I’ve filled with scribbled notes as I’ve tried to stay abreast of the criminality, madness, bad taste, venality, sexual peccadillos and danger emanating from the Trump White House, and they’re not helping at all.
It’s a rabble, really; an assortment of facts and impressions. A yellow legal pad that dates back to the 2016 election topped with khaki colored reporters’ notebooks, and couple of little square “memobook” things I picked up down in Washington, and a pile of loose scraps of paper and old clippings from the Times and peoples’ business cards and god-only-knows what else.
Just yesterday I was flipping madly looking for something I had jotted down recently . . . what was it? There’s a page . . .
Every day, something that’s never happened before . . . they’re not asking questions about nothing . . . overseas contingency account…”

Rachel Maddow Delivers Chilling Warning: A ‘Legal Hurricane’ Is About To Hit Trump article from PoliticusUSA. –
The list of charges and court cases our numb nutted nimrod is facing are growing exponentially and could help put an end to Trump’s failed presidency.
How Trump has backed himself into a legal corner that he’ll never get out of:
“Donald Trump has no real lawyers. Or, to put it more precisely, he has no lawyers capable of representing him as he navigates Robert Mueller’s ever more perilous Russia probe.
Last Thursday, John Dowd, one of the president’s personal attorneys, resigned in part because Trump would not take his advice. On Sunday, we were told that Trump’s newest potential attorney, Joe diGenova—who frequently pretends to be Trump’s lawyer on Fox News and has championed the “deep state/witch hunt” narrative Trump so enjoys—will not be able to work for the president due to a conflict of interest. Same goes for diGenova’s wife, Victoria Toensing. (In reality, the issue between the president and diGenova and Toensing was less a conflicts problem than a chemistry one.)
The president’s other great TV defender, Alan Dershowitz, says he is retired and has no interest in joining the team. On Monday, Dan K. Webb, another big-name criminal defense lawyer, turned down the president’s overtures, as did one of Webb’s law partners. And Ted Olson didn’t just decline the opportunity to serve on Trump’s legal team: The Republican wonder-lawyer also told Andrea Mitchell that the “turmoil” in the White House was “not good for anything,” then revealed to Mother Jones’ David Corn that nobody in D.C. appeared keen to take a White House gig. On Wednesday, CNN piled on, reporting that major D.C. firms are staying far away; Talking Points Memo’s Josh Marshall posits that female partners may be behind those firms’ no-Trump policies.
Trump, as he often does, is living in a different reality. On Sunday, the president tweeted, “Many lawyers and top law firms want to represent me in the Russia case…don’t believe the Fake News narrative that it is hard to find a lawyer who wants to take this on. Fame & fortune will NEVER be turned down by a lawyer, though some are conflicted.”…”

Robert Reich: Donald Trump Is the Worst President in American History article from Alternet. –
Nothing like stating the obvious:
“America has had its share of crooks (Warren G. Harding, Richard Nixon), bigots (Andrew Jackson, James Buchanan), and incompetents (Andrew Johnson, George W. Bush). But never before Donald Trump have we had a president who combined all these nefarious qualities.
America’s great good fortune was to begin with the opposite – a superb moral leader. By June of 1775, when congress appointed George Washington to command the nation’s army, he had already “become a moral rallying post,” as his biographer, Douglas Southall Freeman, described him. He was,“the embodiment of the purpose, the patience, and the determination necessary for the triumph of the revolutionary cause.”
Washington won the war and then led the fledgling nation “by directness, by deference, and by manifest dedication to duty.”
A president’s most fundamental legal and moral responsibility is to uphold and protect our system of government. Donald Trump has degraded that system…”
