Donald Trump and Magnet-Man.

11/29/18
MOSCOW — The Kremlin said Thursday that Washington has confirmed a one-on-one meeting between President Trump and Russian leader Vladi*mir Putin at noon on Dec. 1 at the Group of 20 summit in Argentina. Trump had previously cast the Buenos Aires sit-down into doubt, telling The Washington Post he might cancel seeing Putin after Russia seized Ukrainian vessels and crew members over the weekend, sparking global condemnation and a sharp escalation in tensions between the neighbors. “We are expecting the two presidents to speak briefly at first, but everything is left to the discretion of the heads of state,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters. “Washington has confirmed,” he added.

Not a peep from the Trump administration. But Putin certainly wants everyone to know that the BFF affair is still on.

Keep the K-Y™ handy folks. These two schmucks met for over an hour in Helsinki 4 months ago and still not one word from this administration about what was discussed.

The meeting between Trump and Xi is far more interesting to me, but the meeting between Trump and Putin isn't nothing. I'm sure Putin is trying to get some leverage with their aggression against Ukraine recently for the G20. But the meeting with Xi will probably steal the headlines.

Yes. Always a nothingburger in regards to Russia. Except when Michael Cohen parts the curtain a bit more.

Remember, it's Van Jones that called Russia a #NothingBurger. He's a Leftist that was in an honest moment off camera. And what have we seen from all the accusations that Trump colluded with Russia? Mueller has gotten a bunch of plea deals with a bunch of people around Trump on stuff that had nothing to do with Russia collusion. Mueller hit these people with stuff like perjury or elections in Ukraine. Magically, Democrats aren't even interested in impeaching Trump post-election (surprise, surprise), and there has been nothing found on this alleged collusion. You guys hoped for it so much that I know it's hard to let go of, but holding this position that Trump colluded with Russia is completely irrational at this point. There is no evidence for holding that position, and there has been a lot of investigation. Media outlets have been priming their viewers for some time to be disappointed by what Mueller finds. They have changed expectations of their viewers quite a bit.

Trump wants an answer from Mueller:"Does impeachment actually involve peaches?"

That Cohen is specifically trying to cut his jail time is a matter of fact. That is he lying to do it is a matter of opinion.

Wrong. It was going to happen only if Putin released the Ukrainians ships and personnel.

It seems Trump has cancelled via Twitter. Perhaps the international pressure over Russia's blatant piracy against Ukraine was growing too intense?

Trump cancels his meeting with Putin over Ukraine

11/29/18
U.S. President Donald J. Trump wrote on Twitter on Nov. 29 that he will not meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin during the G20 Summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina due to Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. “Based on the fact that the ships and sailors have not been returned to Ukraine from Russia, I have decided it would be best for all parties concerned to cancel my previously scheduled meeting….,” Trump tweeted.

The problem is, as always, that both Trump and Putin are notorious liars. Sigh. Saturday will tell the tale.

He is a criminal now with nothing to lose everything to gain. Why not lie if you can get away with. The people running the witch hunt have everything to lose if they don't come up with something. Right now after 2 years of investigation if they don't come up without even a criminal saying he was in on it they will look like the biggest goofballs on the planet. They have to come up with something even if it his word against Trumps. So it is down to we will pay you to testify against Trump. Say something.

There is just something wrong with rewarding known criminals to testify to get out of jail. I can get just about any criminal looking at a long jail term to testify against anyone and say anything to get out of their sentence.
