Trump Daily 9/19/2020 – In Other News

Wiser people are publishing about the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg so I won’t be focusing on that here. Virtually no one has had a larger effect on US law and this is obviously now an election issue, but the news cycle doesn’t stop so here are the other stories from the week:

  • Another woman has publicly accused the president of sexual assault. Amy Dorris says Trump forced his tongue into her mouth and groped “my butt, my breasts, my back, everything.” There are credible witnesses saying Dorris told them about the assault when it happened. Dozens of women have accused Trump of sexual assault of various forms up to and including rape. Trump himself bragged about walking in on his underage pageant contestants while they were nude and getting away with it.
  • The president continues to insist the vaccine will be available in a short period of time, this time saying 4-8 weeks. This is a lie.

The atrocities predicted when Trump withdrew US forces from Syria’s border with Turkey happened as predicted – rape, torture, looting, and hostage-taking done by Turkish backed forces.

  • Lawyers Joe DiGenova and Victoria Toensing have been representing journalist John Solomon. The two also represent Dmitry Firtash, a Ukrainian oligarch involved in the current scandal. Solomon has written about the topic, sending drafts to DiGenova and Toensing, without disclosing they are his lawyers. DiGenova and Toensing are frequently on Fox News and informal legal advisers to the president.
  • As the president claims we are sending troops home from Syria, we are sending more troops to Syria to protect the oil fields there. The president tweeted that the displaced Kurds should move to the same area. That would entail hundreds of thousands of people displaced by the Turkish invasion to move hundreds of miles to a region they are not welcome in so they could secure a resource to send to the US.
  • As part of Summer Zervos’s defamation suit against the president, lawyers revealed she had first contacted legal representation regarding Trump’s alleged sexual assault in 2011, long before he ran for president. Trump is due to give a deposition in the case by mid December.
  • The sham Department of Justice inquiry into the origins of the Russia investigation now includes some sort of criminal element to it. I want to stress that we do not currently know what this means. It could involve unwarranted charges and smears against those who were investigating the president. It could also be something minor involving a leak. And while unusual, it is possible they are taking this route to CLOSE a criminal investigation without charging anyone. There simply isn’t enough information yet to judge what is happening here, but given the attorney general’s actions, skepticism is warranted.

I’m not likely to be publishing tomorrow due to my work and social calendars.

  • Trump continued to insist Adam Schiff should be impeached and said he committed fraud when he paraphrased his Ukraine call. Congressmen cannot be impeached and everything Schiff said was accurate.
  • A new book contains accounts from TWENTY SIX more women alleging inappropriate actions, including sexual assault, by the president.
  • A contemporaneous memo from the Ukraine whistleblower was released. It verifies the whistle-blower’s accurate account of the Ukraine call. Trump and the Republicans have continually said the whistle-blower’s report isn’t accurate, but they’re unable to point to any specific discrepancies as all the details align with the White House account of the call.
  • Trump implied it was ok to betray the Kurds because they did not participate in the D-Day invasion during World War 2. Syria is roughly 2700 miles from Normandy. The entire Nazi army stood between the two regions.
  • Trump said that if ISIS prisoners are released due to his capitulation to Turkey, he isn’t worried as they’ll go to European countries.
  • Trump pointed out that if ISIS prisoners are released in Turkey, we have removed 2 of them. There are over 12,000 ISIS prisoners in Syria who are now at risk of being released into the world. The 2 we moved make up 0.016% of them.
