    Trump went after John Brennan this morning and the CIA right before he heads to Langley to swear in Gina Haspel. Brennan is supposed to be there as well. Trump obviously forgot why he's in the position he's in. He went after the CIA while standing in front of the wall of Fallen Stars right after the inauguration. Let's hope the IC finishes him off after this trip.

    Michael Cohen Met With Qatari Official and Nuclear Plant Owner Last Month

    Here’s another action that might be of interest to federal investigators.

    Dan FriedmanMay. 21, 2018 3:51 PM


    Michael Cohen leaves court in Manhattan on Monday April 16, 2018.Go Nakamura/ZUMA Wire




    At a meeting in Miami on April 5, Franklin Haney, the owner of an inoperative nuclear power plant in Hollywood, Alabama, sought a major investment for his facility, according to two sources familiar with the gathering. His target, the sources say, was Sheikh Ahmed bin Jassim bin Mohammed Al Thani, Qatar’s minister of economy and commerce and deputy chairman of the Qatar Investment Authority, the $300 billion sovereign wealth fund of the natural gas-rich Persian Gulf state. Also at the meeting, according to the sources, was Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s longtime personal lawyer and fixer. (Several days later, Cohen’s office and home would be raided by federal agents.) Now, as the Trump scandal expands to include Cohen’s business deals and possible interactions between Trump associates and officials of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, any relationship between Cohen and Qatar would likely be of interest to federal investigators.

    “Michael doesn’t do anything without getting paid.”

    Last week, Foreign Policy reported that Cohen met with Al Thani in Florida that same week on the sidelines of the Qatar-US Economic Forum but noted that its sources would not say what was discussed at the meeting between Cohen and Al Thani. A Qatari embassy spokesman told Foreign Policy that Cohen requested the meeting with Al Thani but would not say if it took place. “The State of Qatar has never been a client of Mr. Cohen,” the spokesman said.


    The two sources familiar with the discussions between Cohen and Al Thani tell Mother Jones that the two men met with Haney to discuss possible Qatari investment in his nuclear power plant. Marinetraffic.com, a website that tracks the location of large ships, shows that Haney’s $50 million, 167-foot yacht, the Emelina, was docked in Miami’s Miamarina from April 2 through April 7. (Haney’s yacht is usually based in Washington, DC.)
    If a deal were struck, Cohen could have expected to receive a finder’s fee, according to the sources. “Michael doesn’t do anything without getting paid,” said one of the sources, who knows Cohen. It’s unclear whether any agreement was reached.


    Cohen’s presence at the meeting would raise questions about his relationship with Qatar, a US ally that has been involved in a bitter diplomatic dispute with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, a conflict that has played out among officials and lobbyists within Washington. Ahmed Al-Rumaihi, who formerly served as the head of the investments division at the Qatari sovereign fund (known as the QIA) and as a Qatari diplomat, recently told the Washington Post and the Intercept that in December 2016 Cohen demanded a fee of $1 million in exchange for connecting Al-Rumaihi with potential partners on US infrastructure projects. Al-Rumaihi, who left the QIA in March 2017, said he rejected Cohen’s request. Cohen told the Intercept it was “untrue” that he had sought payment from Al-Rumaihi. But Cohen, according to the sources who spoke with Mother Jones, still managed to make a connection with the QIA.


    Haney, 77, a Chattanooga, Tennessee, native who made a fortune largely through leasing office space to federal agencies, bought the unfinished Bellefonte Nuclear Plant from the federal Tennessee Valley Authority for $111 million in 2016. Work on the plant started in 1975 but was halted in 1988 and never completed. Haney still needs to line up financing—an estimated $13 billion—to complete work on two nuclear reactors at the plant. Haney also needs Trump administration help. He is seeking an extension of an Energy Department loan guarantee, nuclear power tax credits, and various Nuclear Regulatory Commission approvals. And if the plant is eventually completed, Haney will need business from the TVA, the only viable customer for the plant’s electricity.


    Haney has aggressively courted the Trump administration. After giving heavily to Democrats for years, he donated $1 million to Trump’s inaugural committee through one of his companies. He has also contributed at least $125,000 to the Republican National Committee this year, according to Federal Election Commission records. Bloomberg reported last year that Haney had bragged to associates that he has dined with Trump at least a dozen times since the election. Haney is also a member of Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s Florida club, according to the report.


    Cohen’s attorney and Haney did not respond to requests for comment. A spokesman for the Qatari Investment Authority declined to comment.
    Federal prosecutors in New York are investigating Cohen, and that investigation appears partly focused on Cohen’s efforts after Trump’s election to pitch his relationship with the president to individuals and companies seeking assistance from the new administration. Earlier this month, Michael Avenatti, a lawyer for Stormy Daniels, the porn star who says she had an affair with Trump, revealed a series of payments to Cohen, which were detailed in suspicious financial activity reports compiled by a bank Cohen used. AT&T; Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis; and Columbus Nova, the US investment manager for Viktor Vekselberg, a Russian oligarch recently sanctioned by the Treasury Department, have all confirmed making payments to a Cohen firm called Essential Consultants. After news of these payments broke, several companies claimed that Cohen failed to deliver the assistance they sought.


    Cohen’s meeting with Al Thani suggests he was seeking to capitalize on his connection to Trump as recently as last month. The Miami meeting came the week before an April 10 Oval Office meeting between Trump and the emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. In 2017, Trump supported a blockade imposed on Qatar by Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and others, and he accused Qatar of funding terrorist groups. During this White House meeting, in a sharp reversal, Trump praised the emir for cracking down on terror funding.

    Trump uses a W.H. cell phone that isn’t equipped with sophisticated security features designed to shield his communications, two senior admin officials tell Politico.

    Trump has gone as long as 5 months without having the phone checked by security experts.

    Re: Trump/Rosenstein/FBI

    ————

    “A quick note about severe narcissists like Trump:

    1) Think EVERYTHING is about them

    2) See other people as all good or all bad

    When an enemy refuses to give a narcissist something, the narcissist compulsively thinks:

    “That person is bad, so the thing they won’t give me must be good.”

    The narcissist assumes the thing they can’t have must be really valuable - or the enemy wouldn’t keep it from them.

    Narcissists truly can’t process that sometimes the other person’s reasons have nothing to do with them...

    They also can’t process that sometimes the withheld thing would make them unhappy if they got it.

    Anyone who has ever been through a custody dispute with a narc can tell ya abt this phenomenon.

    “If ya won’t give me custody, I want it even more - even though I really don’t.”

    We’re seeing this phenomenon play out right now with Trump and the FBI/DOJ.

    Trump compulsively assumes any info they won’t give him MUST be valuable and helpful to him... and is only being held back to hurt him.

    Trump truly cannot process that the info the FBI is holding back might actually HURT him.

    He is incapable of processing that the FBI might just be shielding a witness’ identity - because that reason doesn’t revolve around Trump.

    It HAS to be about him. Who else exists?

    I’ve watched this kind of thing play out a thousand times in my own interactions with a narcissist.

    They compulsively fixate on getting whatever enemies don’t want them to have - and they entirely ignore warnings that they won’t like the results if they “win”.

    Then, when the narcissist gets their way, they instantly dislike the results...

    ...and since that can’t possibly be their own fault, they then blame the people around them - as if others were somehow responsible for the narcissist refusing to listen.

    That’s the basic setup for the Trump-DOJ/FBI showdown we’re watching play out.

    The info Trump wants will actually be damaging. It will deepen his problems.

    In his primitive, toddler mind, anything an enemy won’t give him must be super valuable though.

    There is no other track with narcissists. They can do nothing but go down these same dysfunctional paths. No self-regulation. No higher order thinking.

    Trump truly can’t control his impulses. They control him.

    A certainty:

    Babyfingers will browbeat the FBI into revealing the info he compulsively wants...

    ...and then that info will prove hugely damaging to him.

    Even then, he won’t get that he brought all of this on himself...

    ...and then he’ll rage on his inner circle.”

    Kyle Griffin on Twitter...

    Trump isn't always writing his tweets. The Boston Globe reports that West Wing employees who draft proposed tweets intentionally employ suspect grammar to mimic his style.

    They overuse exclamation points, capitalize random words, and write in fragments.

    Let's all think about this for a moment. The President of the US is so illiterate that employs have to dumb down their grasp of grammar to imitate his style.

    Emo teenager is right. I just find it hard to believe anyone else writes these ridiculous rants. People are paid to write poorly. This is how insane our government has become.

    This was seriously just posted on the White House website:

    What You Need To Know About The Violent Animals Of MS-13

    May 21, 2018


    WHAT: The violent animals of MS-13 have committed heinous, violent attacks in communities across America.

    Too many innocent Americans have fallen victim to the unthinkable violence of MS-13’s animals.
    At the State of the Union in January 2018, President Trump brought as his guests Elizabeth Alvarado, Robert Mickens, Evelyn Rodriguez, and Freddy Cuevas, the parents of Nisa Mickens and Kayla Cuevas. Police believe these young girls were chased down and brutally murdered by MS-13 gang members on Long Island, New York, in 2016. Suffolk County Police Commissioner stated that the “murders show a level of brutality that is close to unmatched.”


    In Maryland, MS-13’s animals are accused of stabbing a man more than 100 times and then decapitating him, dismembering him, and ripping his heart out of his body. Police believe MS-13 members in Maryland also savagely beat a 15-year-old human trafficking victim. The MS-13 animals used a bat and took turns beating her nearly 30 times in total.
    In Houston, Texas, two MS-13 members were charged after kidnapping and sexually assaulting one girl and murdering another. The two MS-13 animals laughed, smiled, and waved for cameras in court as they faced the charges.


    New York communities have suffered tremendously from the abhorrent violence of MS-13. Nearly 40 percent of all murders in Suffolk County, New York between January 2016 and June 2017 were tied to MS-13.
    In January 2017, MS-13 members were charged with killing and hacking up a teenager in Nassau County. MS-13’s animals reportedly saw the murder as a way to boost their standing in the gang. In April 2017, police believe four young men were brutally murdered by MS-13 animals on Long Island. One victim was a young man in town visiting family during an Easter week vacation. Just last month, in April 2018, MS-13 reportedly called for its members on Long Island to kill a cop for the sake of making a statement.

    WHY: MS-13 is a transnational gang which follows the motto of “kill, rape, control” by committing shocking acts of violence in an attempt to instill fear and gain control.

    MS-13 is a transnational gang that has brought violence, fear, and suffering to American communities. MS-13, short for Mara Salvatrucha, commits shocking acts of violence to instill fear, including machete attacks, executions, gang rape, human trafficking, and more. In their motto, the animals of MS-13 make clear their goal is to “kill, rape, control.” The gang has more than 10,000 members in the United States spreading violence and suffering.


    Recent investigations have revealed MS-13 gang leaders based in El Salvador have been sending representatives into the United States illegally to connect the leaders with local gang members. These foreign-based gang leaders direct local members to become even more violent in an effort to control more territory.
    President Trump’s entire Administration is working tirelessly to bring these violent animals to justice.
