Jim Denison: 3 Biblical Responses to the Released Summary of the Mueller Report

While I was flying home from Israel yesterday, US Attorney General William Barr released his summary of Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller’s two-year-long investigation into President Trump and his aides.
The summary addressed the question America has been asking for the last 676 days: Did the president, or anyone working for him, conspire with Russia to influence the 2016 election in his favor? Further, did he or those working on his behalf attempt to obstruct federal investigations into this matter?
The significance of the Mueller report is enormous. If the special counsel determined that such collusion or obstruction took place, the ramifications for our democracy would be foundational and tragic.
WHAT THE REPORT TELLS US

WATCH: President Trump Brings Down the House in State of the Union

President Trump took the stage in front of Vice President Pence and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to say the ‘state of our union is strong’ during his address.
Face to face with emboldened Democrats, President Donald Trump on Tuesday called on Washington to cast aside “revenge, resistance and retribution” and end “ridiculous partisan investigations” in a State of the Union address delivered at a vulnerable moment for his presidency.
Trump appealed for bipartisanship but refused to yield on the hard-line immigration policies that have infuriated Democrats and forced the recent government shutdown. He renewed his call for a border wall and cast illegal immigration as a threat to Americans’ safety and economic security.
Trump accepted no blame for his role in cultivating the rancorous ...

President Trump, Hillary Clinton Join Calls for Ralph Northam to Resign After he Admits Wearing Blackface, but Denies Being in Yearbook Photo

President Donald Trump called Ralph Northam’s actions “unforgivable” after the Virginia governor said Saturday afternoon that he does not believe he is either person in the racist photo that appeared in his 1984 Eastern Virginia Medical School yearbook.
“Democrat Governor Ralph Northam of Virginia just stated, ‘I believe that I am not either of the people in that photo,’” Trump tweeted. “This was 24 hours after apologizing for appearing in the picture and after making the most horrible statement on ‘super’ late term abortion. Unforgivable!”
About 20 minutes later, Trump speculated about what Northam’s Republican challenger, Ed Gillespie, might be thinking about following the discovery of the racist yearbook photo.
“Ed Gillespie, who ran for Governor of the Great State of Virginia against R...

Trump Turns on Fox News: President Slams Two Reporters From His Favorite Network as ‘Having Less Understanding Than Fake News CNN and NBC’ Over a Report About Border Wall Fight

President Trump criticized two of Fox News reporters – White House Correspondent John Roberts and Washington Correspondent Gillian Turner – in a tweet on Sunday. ‘Never thought I’d say this but I think @johnrobertsFox and @GillianHTurner @FoxNews have even less understanding of the Wall negotiations than the folks at FAKE NEWS CNN & NBC!’ the President tweeted on Sunday. Roberts is a veteran White House correspondent who covered the beat earlier in his career for CBS News. Turner joined Fox News as a contributor in 2014. Before that, she worked in the National Security Council under Presidents Bush and Obama, according to her Twitter bio.

Security Officials Denied Jared Kushner’s Security Clearance but Were Reportedly Overruled by Trump Official

Jared Kushner’s application for a top secret clearance was rejected by two career White House security specialists after an FBI background check raised concerns about potential foreign influence on him — but their supervisor overruled the recommendation and approved the clearance, two sources familiar with the matter told NBC News.

The official, Carl Kline, is a former Pentagon employee who was installed as director of the personnel security office in the Executive Office of the President in May 2017. Kushner’s was one of at least 30 cases in which Kline overruled career security experts and approved a top secret clearance for incoming Trump officials despite unfavorable information, the two sources said...

2018: A Year of Disruption for Trump — With Danger Still Ahead

He came, he disrupted, he declared victory. Ask Donald Trump and he’ll tell you 2018 was a roaring success.
“Nobody’s ever done a better job than I’m doing as president,” Trump told Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward.
Classic Trump.
Best ever or not, there’s no denying this most unusual White House resident left quite a mark in the second year of his administration.
From trampling near-sacred allies like Canada to trying to make good with rival Russia and enemy North Korea, Trump’s foreign policy shook up the world.
And at home, he stoked populist fires with “Make America Great Again” rallies that made it seem his 2016 election campaign had never ended — or that his 2020 reelection campaign had already begun.
Trump’s 2018 on the international stage was “a very important year in terms ...

Peggy Noonan: Trump, Like Obama, Appeals Primarily to Emotion — That’s a Troubling Political Trend (Here Comes Beto)

Fox News’ year-end poll is interesting. Thirty-eight percent of respondents said they would vote today to re-elect President Trump, with 30% saying they definitely would. Thirty-nine percent say they expect him to be re-elected; 52% do not. At the same time, the president has a 46% job-approval rating, while 52% disapprove.
So the president’s approval numbers have been more or less steady, but not all those who approve of him are ready to vote for him again.
Possible reasons why are suggested deeper in the poll. The proportion who think the economy will be better a year from now has fallen 11 points since two years ago, to 45%—the most pessimistic outlook in Fox’s poll since January 2001...

Federal Prosecutors Say Trump Directed Illegal Payments During Campaign

Federal prosecutors said on Friday that President Trump directed illegal payments to ward off a potential sex scandal that threatened his chances of winning the White House in 2016, putting the weight of the Justice Department behind accusations previously made by his former lawyer.
The lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, had said that as the election neared, Mr. Trump directed payments to two women who claimed they had affairs with Mr. Trump. But in a new memo arguing for a prison term for Mr. Cohen, prosecutors in Manhattan said he “acted in coordination and at the direction of” an unnamed individual, clearly referring to Mr. Trump.
In another filing, prosecutors for the special counsel investigating Russia’s 2016 election interference said an unnamed Russian offered Mr...

President Donald Trump on Saturday nominated Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley to be the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
“I am pleased to announce my nomination of four-star General Mark Milley, Chief of Staff of the United States Army — as the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, replacing General Joe Dunford, who will be retiring,” Trump posted on Twitter Saturday morning. “I am thankful to both of these incredible men for their service to our Country!”

Marine Corps Gen. Joseph Dunford, who took on the role in 2015, is expected to serve out his term, which expires later next year.
