The Washington Post: ‘The closer’? The inside story of how Trump tried — and failed — to make a deal on health care

‘The closer’? The inside story of how Trump tried — and failed — to make a deal on health care


Still the Party of “No”

They’re just saying it to each other now. Listen, it’s not their fault. There are only 230+ Republicans in the House of Representatives whose entire job is to make laws and they’ve only had 7 years to come up with  something. Really, I think your expectations were unreasonable.

This is not good news. It’s becoming impossible to deny that a group of already rich and powerful people desired MORE power so badly that they enlisted the aid of our oldest and greatest adversary to subvert our democratic processes.

They played their voters and they sold out their country.

The reason I’m sharing this in The Good File is that there are still patriots in the government and elsewhere that are fighting every day to turn over the rocks and shed light on these cockroaches.

The noose of Kremlingate is tightening – and the scandal increasingly appears to tie Trump associates to a Russian campaign to subvert American democracy.

Call your reps. Tell them to keep digging. This isn’t about Democrats and Republicans, it’s not about conservatives and liberals, it’s about America. Yeah, the whole thing. This must be exposed and everyone involved must be held accountable. Everything is at stake.


“There are other shoes that will drop,” Sen. John McCain told Bloomberg of the Manafort affair. “This is a centipede.”

“not a neutral legal mind but someone with a deep-seated conservative ideology. He was groomed by the Federalist Society and has shown not one inch of difference between his views and theirs.”

One could also argue that maybe we shouldn’t let Trump put someone on the Supreme Court for LIFE until we are sure the president is not a Russian agent.

Trump and his Staff are Liars

“With respect to the president’s tweets about alleged wiretapping directed at him by the prior administration, I have no information that supports those tweets, and we have looked carefully inside the FBI,” Comey said. “The Department of Justice has asked me to share with you that the answer is the same for the Department of Justice and all its components, the department has no information that supports those tweets.”

The House Intelligence Committee is looking into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Comey confirmed on Monday that the bureau is conducting an investigation into Russian interference with the 2016 election and potential ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

I know, I was shocked too!
