Dem Rep Meeks: Trump ‘Does Not Care About the USA’ – He Wants ‘A Regime’ Similar to Putin’s and Erdogan’s

On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” Representative Gregory Meeks (D-NY) argued that President Trump doesn’t care about America and would like to have a regime similar to Vladimir Putin’s in Russia and Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s in Turkey. Meeks said Trump is “telling the attorney general to step down, that he has no confidence in him, and he wants [him] to go.” Meeks continued, “And I think, guess what, the attorney general should step down, just because of his own integrity. You know, it seems clear to me that this president does not care about the United States of America. What this president cares about is Donald Trump, and what he would like to have is a regime in the similar fashion that Mr. Putin has and Mr. Erdogan has, where he is an authoritarian, and everyone just pledges their allegiance to him, not to the Constitution, not to what the right thing is to do for this country.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

Schweizer: Majority of Dems Not Requiring Security Codes that Stop Fraudulent Donations


Monday on Sean Hannity’s nationally syndicated radio show, “Clinton Cash” author Peter Schweizer discussed a Government Accountability Institute report that claims fewer than 10 percent of Democrats require a three-digit security code called the CVV number for online donations. According to Schweizer, it could mean “fraudulent hidden donations, even foreign donations” are “flowing into our campaigns.” Schweizer said, “So a lot of people, when you buy things online, go to Amazon or other places, you have to put in that CVV code, which is designed to make sure that your not using a fraudulent card for a transaction. And that is to prevent fraudulent transactions. Now the campaign scenario—this issue came up in 2008. The Washington Post—actual reporting on the fact that there were thousands of donations to the Obama campaign made with cash cards, meaning they could not be traced. And so a lot of people argued you need to have the security code on there to make sure that people are not making a hidden donation to campaigns.” He continued, “Before, Democrats and Republicans have generally been equal in requiring the CVV security on their website for donations. In the last five years, it’s gone down 63 percent. So you

Trump: ‘Obamacare Is Death’ – Senate GOP Has ‘Not Done Their Job’ in Ending it

During a statement on Monday, President Trump stated Senate Republicans haven’t done their job on Obamacare and that any senator who votes against starting debate on the Senate GOP’s healthcare bill is telling Americans that they’re fine with Obamacare. Trump said, “For the last seven years, Republicans have been united in standing up for Obamacare’s victims. Remember repeal and replace, repeal and replace, they kept saying it over and over again. Every Republican running for office promised immediate relief from this disastrous law. We as a party must fulfill that solemn promise to the voters of this country to repeal and replace, what they’ve been saying, for the last seven years. But so far Senate Republicans have not done their job in ending the Obamacare nightmare. They now have a chance, however, to hopefully, hopefully, fix what has been so badly broken for such a long time.” After criticizing Democrats for giving “zero help” on replacing Obamacare, Trump added, “Any senator who votes against starting debate is telling America that you are fine with the Obamacare nightmare, which is what it is. For Democrats, this vote is a chance to make up for the terrible harm they have inflicted on Americans,

Rush Limbaugh: Sessions Won’t Quit as AG — Trump Will Have to ‘Dismiss Him’


Monday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh weighed in on reports that President Donald Trump was beginning to sour on Attorney General Jeff Sessions and that he was considering replacing Sessions with former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Limbaugh said he did not believe Sessions would resign voluntarily and that it would require a dismissal by Trump to replace the attorney general. Partial transcript as follows (courtesy of RushLimbaugh.com): Ladies and gentlemen, I got a cryptic email this morning from a friend who said that a friend of his, who I know (all these people must remain nameless) has been charged with some serious vetting of people. The administration, the Trump administration is vetting people as they would if they were considering somebody for cabinet secretary or similar position in the bureaucracy. My friend did not know who it was being vetted, and I had no idea, and I didn’t pursue it ’cause I knew that if they didn’t know they weren’t gonna… I didn’t want to hear a guess. So a couple hours later, I’m in the midst of intense show prep here, and I run across a story published this morning by the
