Democrats pound Trump with subpoenas, capping most aggressive week of oversight yet

Michael_Novakhov shared this story .

As President Donald Trump tried to move on this week from the special counsel’s Russia investigation, Democratic investigators mashed the gas pedal on their various oversight probes, authorizing subpoenas for the full Mueller report and for nine current and former Trump administration officials.

And on Wednesday afternoon, the House Ways and Means Committee formally kicked off its pursuit of the president’s tax returns, capping what has been the most aggressive week of this Congress’ oversight of the administration to date.

In the face of what House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings has coined “an unprecedented level of stonewalling, delay and obstruction” by the Trump administration, Cummings’ committee and the House Judiciary Committee authorized three subpoena resolutions this week.

All three were authorized on party-line votes.

Judiciary Committee

After receiving approval from the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, Chairman Jerrold Nadler now has a subpoena in his quiver to demand for the full report of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III in case Attorney General William Barr releases only a redacted copy.

Nadler has suggested he could hold onto that subpoena if Barr acquiesces to Democrats’ demands to include grand jury information and information in the report related to unindicted persons that could include the president, his adult children, and his son-in-law.

But Barr notified Congress in a letter in March that he is scrubbing the report — with the special counsel’s help — of such information.

“We expect the full report and underlying evidence and will subpoena it if necessary,” a House Judiciary Committee aide said Thursday, adding that there is no timeline for the chairman to serve his subpoena.

Oversight Committee

Cummings, on the other hand, is not waiting around. He has served all four subpoenas he was authorized to submit on Tuesday.

The Oversight Committee authorized subpoenas for Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross to provide documents about Ross’ proposed addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 census and for Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General John Gore to testify in Oversight’s investigation into the matter.

The committee also authorized Cummings to issue a subpoena for White House Personnel Security Director Carl Kline to testify regarding the committee’s probe into the White House security clearance process. Trump and his administration are facing allegations that they overrode career intelligence officials’ advice not to give a security clearance to the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, in addition to two dozen other people.

And don’t forget about the Michael Cohen, the president’s former personal lawyer who testified in February that Trump committed bank loan fraud on multiple occasions: Cummings told reporters Wednesday that Trump’s accounting firm, Mazars USA, will provide financial documents from the president going back 10 years after the chairman issues a “friendly subpoena” for the documents. Democrats are investigating whether Trump inflated the value of his assets in order to secure loans in the early 2010s, including an effort to purchase the NFL’s Buffalo Bills.

Ways and Means

House Ways and Means Chairman Richard E. Neal formally asked the IRS Wednesday for six years of President Trump’s tax returns and set a deadline of April 10 to get the documents.

Signaling a fight ahead, Trump told reporters later he was “not inclined” to comply with Neal’s demand.

Neal’s authority to seek the president’s tax returns stems from Section 6103 of the tax code that stipulates the Treasury Secretary “shall” furnish tax-writing committees “with any return or return information” requested for an individual.

Trump has been criticized for being the first president since Richard Nixon to not voluntarily release his tax returns. In a statement accompanying his letter, Neal said the request was about “policy, not politics,” and “in no way based on emotion of the moment or partisanship.”

Democrats on the House Intelligence and Financial Services committees will be keen to comb those returns as they dig into the president’s personal finances and ties to foreign government and entities for their own, separate wide-ranging investigations.

Republican pushback

As Democrats tied the bows on their most aggressive week of oversight since taking back the House majority in January for the first time in nearly a decade, their Republican counterparts accused them of impeding the president’s agenda and ability to work with House Democrats on policy solutions.

“This was not a transparency subpoena, this was a 2020 subpoena,” Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina said in an interview on Fox News Thursday morning about the Judiciary Committee’s authorization of the Mueller report subpoena.

Meadows, the chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, sits on both the Oversight and Judiciary panels.

“It’s all political theater. It has nothing really to do with getting to the truth,” Meadows said of the Democrats’ subpoena barrage this week.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters Thursday she is not concerned that the aggressive investigative shift this week will play into Republican messaging that Democrats are on a political “fishing expedition” to unearth damaging information about Trump.

“No, no I’m not [concerned],” the California Democrat said. “I salute my chairmen. They’ve been very thoughtful. They’re evidence-based in what they are doing.”

In a tweet Thursday, the president panned the Democrats’ week of demands as “the highest level of Presidential Harassment in the history of our Country,” repeating a phrase he has often used to describe Congress’ constitutionally mandated oversight of the executive branch.

Democrats should “focus on legislation,” Trump tweeted.

Объявлены окончательные результаты первого тура выборов президента Украины: Украина: Бывший СССР: Lenta.ru

1 Share

Центризбирком Украины завершил подсчет голосов в первом туре выборов президента страны. Об этом свидетельствуют данные сайта ЦИК.

По данным обработки 100 процентов протоколов, артист Владимир Зеленский сохраняет лидерство с результатом 30,24 процента. Действующий глава государства Петр Порошенкополучает 15,95 процента, бывший премьер-министр и лидер партии «Батькивщина» Юлия Тимошенко — 13,4 процента.

На четвертом месте оказался кандидат от «Оппозиционной платформы — За жизнь» Юрий Бойко, получивший 11,67 процента голосов. Разрыв с бывшим министром обороны Украины Анатолием Гриценко, оказавшимся на пятом месте, составляет несколько процентов.

Итоговые результаты первого тура в целом совпали с данными «Национального экзитпола». Согласно им, 30,6 процента избирателей проголосовали за артиста, 17,8 процента — за действующего президента, 14,2 процента — за бывшего премьер-министра.

Ранее 2 апреля ЦИК уже объявил, что во второй тур выборов, который намечен на 21 апреля, проходят только Зеленский и Порошенко.

Тимошенко, которая в течение предвыборной гонки неоднократно опережала действующего президента по данным соцопросов, уже обвинила Порошенко в организации масштабных фальсификаций, направленных на снижение ее результата. Лидер партии «Батькивщина» не намерена поддерживать ни одного из своих оппонентов во втором туре, однако заверила, что не станет обжаловать результаты или выводить людей на массовые акции протеста.

Для того, чтобы победить в первом туре, любому из кандидатов в президенты Украины нужно было набрать не менее 50 процентов голосов плюс еще один голос. Второй тур состоится 21 апреля. Окончательные результаты выборов станут известны до 1 мая.

Some on Mueller’s Team Say Report Was More Damaging Than Barr Revealed

1 Share

WASHINGTON — Some of Robert S. Mueller III’s investigators have told associates that Attorney General William P. Barr failed to adequately portray the findings of their inquiry and that they were more troubling for President Trump than Mr. Barr indicated, according to government officials and others familiar with their simmering frustrations.

At stake in the dispute — the first evidence of tension between Mr. Barr and the special counsel’s office — is who shapes the public’s initial understanding of one of the most consequential government investigations in American history. Some members of Mr. Mueller’s team are concerned that, because Mr. Barr created the first narrative of the special counsel’s findings, Americans’ views will have hardened before the investigation’s conclusions become public.

Mr. Barr has said he will move quickly to release the nearly 400-page report but needs time to scrub out confidential information. The special counsel’s investigators had already written multiple summaries of the report, and some team members believe that Mr. Barr should have included more of their material in the four-page letter he wrote on March 24 laying out their main conclusions, according to government officials familiar with the investigation. Mr. Barr only briefly cited the special counsel’s work in his letter.

However, the special counsel’s office never asked Mr. Barr to release the summaries soon after he received the report, a person familiar with the investigation said. And the Justice Department quickly determined that the summaries contain sensitive information, like classified material, secret grand-jury testimony and information related to current federal investigations that must remain confidential, according to two government officials.

Mr. Barr was also wary of departing from Justice Department practice not to disclose derogatory details in closing an investigation, according to two government officials familiar with Mr. Barr’s thinking. They pointed to the decision by James B. Comey, the former F.B.I. director, to harshly criticize Hillary Clinton in 2016 while announcing that he was recommending no charges in the inquiry into her email practices.

The officials and others interviewed declined to flesh out why some of the special counsel’s investigators viewed their findings as potentially more damaging for the president than Mr. Barr explained, although the report is believed to examine Mr. Trump’s efforts to thwart the investigation. It was unclear how much discussion Mr. Mueller and his investigators had with senior Justice Department officials about how their findings would be made public. It was also unclear how widespread the vexation is among the special counsel team, which included 19 lawyers, about 40 F.B.I. agents and other personnel.

At the same time, Mr. Barr and his advisers have expressed their own frustrations about Mr. Mueller and his team. Mr. Barr and other Justice Department officials believe the special counsel’s investigators fell short of their task by declining to decide whether Mr. Trump illegally obstructed the inquiry, according to the two government officials. After Mr. Mueller made no judgment on the obstruction matter, Mr. Barr stepped in to declare that he himself had cleared Mr. Trump of wrongdoing.

Representatives for the Justice Department and the special counsel declined to comment on Wednesday on views inside both Mr. Mueller’s office and the Justice Department. They pointed to departmental regulations requiring Mr. Mueller to file a confidential report to the attorney general detailing prosecution decisions and to Mr. Barr’s separate vow to send a redacted version of that report to Congress. Under the regulations, Mr. Barr can publicly release as much of the document as he deems appropriate.

A debate over how the special counsel’s conclusions are represented has played out in public as well as in recent weeks, with Democrats in Congress accusing Mr. Barr of intervening to color the outcome of the investigation in the president’s favor.

In his letter to Congress outlining the report’s chief conclusions, Mr. Barr said that Mr. Mueller found no conspiracy between Mr. Trump’s campaign and Russia’s 2016 election interference. While Mr. Mueller made no decision on his other main question, whether the president illegally obstructed the inquiry, he explicitly stopped short of exonerating Mr. Trump.

Mr. Mueller’s decision to skip a prosecutorial judgment “leaves it to the attorney general to determine whether the conduct described in the report constitutes a crime,” Mr. Barr wrote. He and his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, decided that the evidence was insufficient to conclude that Mr. Trump had committed an obstruction offense.

Mr. Barr has come under criticism for sharing so little. But according to officials familiar with the attorney general’s thinking, he and his aides limited the details they revealed because they were worried about wading into political territory. Mr. Barr and his advisers expressed concern that if they included derogatory information about Mr. Trump while clearing him, they would face a storm of criticism like what Mr. Comey endured in the Clinton investigation.

Legal experts attacked Mr. Comey at the time for violating Justice Department practice to keep confidential any negative information about anyone uncovered during investigations. The practice exists to keep from unfairly sullying people’s reputations without giving them a chance to respond in court.

Mr. Rosenstein cited the handling of the Clinton case in a memo the White House used to rationalize Mr. Trump’s firing of Mr. Comey.

Though it was not clear what findings the special counsel’s investigators viewed as troubling for the president, Mr. Barr has suggested that Mr. Mueller may have found evidence of malfeasance in investigating possible obstruction of justice. “The report sets out evidence on both sides of the question,” Mr. Barr wrote in his March 24 letter.

Mr. Mueller examined Mr. Trump’s attempts to maintain control over the investigation, including his firing of Mr. Comey and his attempt to oust Mr. Mueller and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to install a loyalist to oversee the inquiry.

The fallout from Mr. Barr’s letter outlining the Russia investigation’s main findings overshadowed his intent to make public as much of the entire report as possible, a goal he has stressed since his confirmation hearing in January. He reiterated to lawmakers on Friday that he wanted both Congress and the public to read the report and said that the department would by mid-April furnish a version with sensitive material blacked out. He offered to testify on Capitol Hill soon after turning over the report.

Mr. Barr, who took office in February, has shown flashes of frustration over how the unveiling of the investigation’s findings has unfolded. In his follow-up letter to lawmakers on Friday, he chafed at how the news media and some lawmakers had characterized his March 24 letter.

Mr. Barr and Mr. Mueller have been friends for 30 years, and Mr. Barr said during his confirmation hearing in January that he trusted Mr. Mueller to conduct an impartial investigation. He said he told Mr. Trump that Mr. Mueller was a “straight shooter who should be dealt with as such.” Mr. Mueller served as the head of the Justice Department’s criminal division when Mr. Barr was attorney general under George Bush, and their families are friends.

Mr. Barr’s promises of transparency have done little to appease Democrats who control the House. The House Judiciary Committee voted on Wednesday to let its chairman use a subpoena to try to compel Mr. Barr to hand over a full copy of the Mueller report and its underlying evidence to Congress. The chairman, Representative Jerrold Nadler, Democrat of New York, has not said when he will use the subpoena, but made clear on Wednesday that he did not trust Mr. Barr’s characterization of what Mr. Mueller’s team found.

“The Constitution charges Congress with holding the president accountable for alleged official misconduct,” Mr. Nadler said. “That job requires us to evaluate the evidence for ourselves — not the attorney general’s summary, not a substantially redacted synopsis, but the full report and the underlying evidence.”

Republicans, who have embraced Mr. Barr’s letter clearing Mr. Trump, have accused the Democrats of trying to prolong the cloud over his presidency and urged them to move on.

Mr. Trump has fully embraced Mr. Barr’s version of events. For days, he has pronounced the outcome of the investigation a “complete and total exoneration” and called for the Justice Department and his allies on Capitol Hill to investigate and hold accountable those responsible for opening the inquiry.

Центризбирком Украины завершил подсчет голосов в первом туре выборов президента страны. Об этом свидетельствуют данные сайта ЦИК.

По данным обработки 100 процентов протоколов, артист Владимир Зеленский сохраняет лидерство с результатом 30,24 процента. Действующий глава государства Петр Порошенко получает 15,95 процента, бывший премьер-министр и лидер партии «Батькивщина» Юлия Тимошенко — 13,4 процента.

На четвертом месте оказался кандидат от «Оппозиционной платформы — За жизнь» Юрий Бойко, получивший 11,67 процента голосов. Разрыв с бывшим министром обороны Украины Анатолием Гриценко, оказавшимся на пятом месте, составляет несколько процентов.

Итоговые результаты первого тура в целом совпали с данными «Национального экзитпола». Согласно им, 30,6 процента избирателей проголосовали за артиста, 17,8 процента — за действующего президента, 14,2 процента — за бывшего премьер-министра.

Ранее 2 апреля ЦИК уже объявил, что во второй тур выборов, который намечен на 21 апреля, проходят только Зеленский и Порошенко.

Тимошенко, которая в течение предвыборной гонки неоднократно опережала действующего президента по данным соцопросов, уже обвинила Порошенко в организации масштабных фальсификаций, направленных на снижение ее результата. Лидер партии «Батькивщина» не намерена поддерживать ни одного из своих оппонентов во втором туре, однако заверила, что не станет обжаловать результаты или выводить людей на массовые акции протеста.

Для того, чтобы победить в первом туре, любому из кандидатов в президенты Украины нужно было набрать не менее 50 процентов голосов плюс еще один голос. Второй тур состоится 21 апреля. Окончательные результаты выборов станут известны до 1 мая.

Some on Mueller’s Team Say Report Was More Damaging Than Barr Revealed

Michael_Novakhov shared this story .

WASHINGTON — Some of Robert S. Mueller III’s investigators have told associates that Attorney General William P. Barr failed to adequately portray the findings of their inquiry and that they were more troubling for President Trump than Mr. Barr indicated, according to government officials and others familiar with their simmering frustrations.

At stake in the dispute — the first evidence of tension between Mr. Barr and the special counsel’s office — is who shapes the public’s initial understanding of one of the most consequential government investigations in American history. Some members of Mr. Mueller’s team are concerned that, because Mr. Barr created the first narrative of the special counsel’s findings, Americans’ views will have hardened before the investigation’s conclusions become public.

Mr. Barr has said he will move quickly to release the nearly 400-page report but needs time to scrub out confidential information. The special counsel’s investigators had already written multiple summaries of the report, and some team members believe that Mr. Barr should have included more of their material in the four-page letter he wrote on March 24 laying out their main conclusions, according to government officials familiar with the investigation. Mr. Barr only briefly cited the special counsel’s work in his letter.

However, the special counsel’s office never asked Mr. Barr to release the summaries soon after he received the report, a person familiar with the investigation said. And the Justice Department quickly determined that the summaries contain sensitive information, like classified material, secret grand-jury testimony and information related to current federal investigations that must remain confidential, according to two government officials.

Mr. Barr was also wary of departing from Justice Department practice not to disclose derogatory details in closing an investigation, according to two government officials familiar with Mr. Barr’s thinking. They pointed to the decision by James B. Comey, the former F.B.I. director, to harshly criticize Hillary Clinton in 2016 while announcing that he was recommending no charges in the inquiry into her email practices.

The officials and others interviewed declined to flesh out why some of the special counsel’s investigators viewed their findings as potentially more damaging for the president than Mr. Barr explained, although the report is believed to examine Mr. Trump’s efforts to thwart the investigation. It was unclear how much discussion Mr. Mueller and his investigators had with senior Justice Department officials about how their findings would be made public. It was also unclear how widespread the vexation is among the special counsel team, which included 19 lawyers, about 40 F.B.I. agents and other personnel.

At the same time, Mr. Barr and his advisers have expressed their own frustrations about Mr. Mueller and his team. Mr. Barr and other Justice Department officials believe the special counsel’s investigators fell short of their task by declining to decide whether Mr. Trump illegally obstructed the inquiry, according to the two government officials. After Mr. Mueller made no judgment on the obstruction matter, Mr. Barr stepped in to declare that he himself had cleared Mr. Trump of wrongdoing.

Representatives for the Justice Department and the special counsel declined to comment on Wednesday on views inside both Mr. Mueller’s office and the Justice Department. They pointed to departmental regulations requiring Mr. Mueller to file a confidential report to the attorney general detailing prosecution decisions and to Mr. Barr’s separate vow to send a redacted version of that report to Congress. Under the regulations, Mr. Barr can publicly release as much of the document as he deems appropriate.

A debate over how the special counsel’s conclusions are represented has played out in public as well as in recent weeks, with Democrats in Congress accusing Mr. Barr of intervening to color the outcome of the investigation in the president’s favor.

In his letter to Congress outlining the report’s chief conclusions, Mr. Barr said that Mr. Mueller found no conspiracy between Mr. Trump’s campaign and Russia’s 2016 election interference. While Mr. Mueller made no decision on his other main question, whether the president illegally obstructed the inquiry, he explicitly stopped short of exonerating Mr. Trump.

Mr. Mueller’s decision to skip a prosecutorial judgment “leaves it to the attorney general to determine whether the conduct described in the report constitutes a crime,” Mr. Barr wrote. He and his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, decided that the evidence was insufficient to conclude that Mr. Trump had committed an obstruction offense.

Mr. Barr has come under criticism for sharing so little. But according to officials familiar with the attorney general’s thinking, he and his aides limited the details they revealed because they were worried about wading into political territory. Mr. Barr and his advisers expressed concern that if they included derogatory information about Mr. Trump while clearing him, they would face a storm of criticism like what Mr. Comey endured in the Clinton investigation.

Legal experts attacked Mr. Comey at the time for violating Justice Department practice to keep confidential any negative information about anyone uncovered during investigations. The practice exists to keep from unfairly sullying people’s reputations without giving them a chance to respond in court.

Mr. Rosenstein cited the handling of the Clinton case in a memo the White House used to rationalize Mr. Trump’s firing of Mr. Comey.

Though it was not clear what findings the special counsel’s investigators viewed as troubling for the president, Mr. Barr has suggested that Mr. Mueller may have found evidence of malfeasance in investigating possible obstruction of justice. “The report sets out evidence on both sides of the question,” Mr. Barr wrote in his March 24 letter.

Mr. Mueller examined Mr. Trump’s attempts to maintain control over the investigation, including his firing of Mr. Comey and his attempt to oust Mr. Mueller and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to install a loyalist to oversee the inquiry.

The fallout from Mr. Barr’s letter outlining the Russia investigation’s main findings overshadowed his intent to make public as much of the entire report as possible, a goal he has stressed since his confirmation hearing in January. He reiterated to lawmakers on Friday that he wanted both Congress and the public to read the report and said that the department would by mid-April furnish a version with sensitive material blacked out. He offered to testify on Capitol Hill soon after turning over the report.

Mr. Barr, who took office in February, has shown flashes of frustration over how the unveiling of the investigation’s findings has unfolded. In his follow-up letter to lawmakers on Friday, he chafed at how the news media and some lawmakers had characterized his March 24 letter.

Mr. Barr and Mr. Mueller have been friends for 30 years, and Mr. Barr said during his confirmation hearing in January that he trusted Mr. Mueller to conduct an impartial investigation. He said he told Mr. Trump that Mr. Mueller was a “straight shooter who should be dealt with as such.” Mr. Mueller served as the head of the Justice Department’s criminal division when Mr. Barr was attorney general under George Bush, and their families are friends.

Mr. Barr’s promises of transparency have done little to appease Democrats who control the House. The House Judiciary Committee voted on Wednesday to let its chairman use a subpoena to try to compel Mr. Barr to hand over a full copy of the Mueller report and its underlying evidence to Congress. The chairman, Representative Jerrold Nadler, Democrat of New York, has not said when he will use the subpoena, but made clear on Wednesday that he did not trust Mr. Barr’s characterization of what Mr. Mueller’s team found.

“The Constitution charges Congress with holding the president accountable for alleged official misconduct,” Mr. Nadler said. “That job requires us to evaluate the evidence for ourselves — not the attorney general’s summary, not a substantially redacted synopsis, but the full report and the underlying evidence.”

Republicans, who have embraced Mr. Barr’s letter clearing Mr. Trump, have accused the Democrats of trying to prolong the cloud over his presidency and urged them to move on.

Mr. Trump has fully embraced Mr. Barr’s version of events. For days, he has pronounced the outcome of the investigation a “complete and total exoneration” and called for the Justice Department and his allies on Capitol Hill to investigate and hold accountable those responsible for opening the inquiry.

Sanders is viewed abroad as a potential figurehead for a worldwide movement against right-wing populism.
Bernie Sanders has a base that no other 2020 candidate can claim: left-wing politicians around the globe.
From South America to Europe to the Middle East, leftist leaders are celebrating his candidacy, viewing him as an iconic democratic socialist with the potential to lead a worldwide progressive movement at a time when right-wing populism is on the rise across the map.
Story Continued Below
Their regard for Sanders burnishes the Vermont senator’s foreign policy bona fides at a time when he is trying to shake the reputation he received in 2016 as a lightweight on international affairs. But it also carries risks for an American politician who will need to broaden his appeal and insulate himself against attacks on his progressive ideals to win the White House.
“There is a danger to collecting maybe not endorsements, but positive reviews from far-left politicians around the world when American voters are still not quite sure about how they feel about democratic socialism,” said Jennifer Holdsworth, a former staffer for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 bid and the ex-campaign manager for Pete Buttigieg’s run for Democratic National Committee chairman. “And this is not just a Democratic primary conversation, this is also a general election conversation.”
Among Sanders’ admirers: Evo Morales, the socialist president of Bolivia who blasted the United States last year for committing the “most egregious acts of aggression committed during the 21st century.”
Morales congratulated Sanders recently on Twitter for launching a second bid for the White House: “We are confident this progressive leader will have a strong support from the people of the U.S. Democratic revolutions are built upon democratic elections.”
Not all of Sanders’ foreign fans are so controversial. Members of Parliament in the United Kingdom’s Labour Party have argued that Sanders and Jeremy Corbyn would have a “special relationship” if the two men both rose to the top of their countries.
“Over the moon that @BernieSanders is running for President in 2020,” wrote Laura Pidcock, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, in a tweet after he announced his candidacy. “Bernie was never just a candidate, his campaign was a movement, galvanising millions & offering hope across the globe.”
Richard Burgon, the Labour Party’s Shadow Justice Secretary, confirmed that “the two teams” — Sanders’ and his party’s — “have talked.”
“Bernie Sanders’ last campaign was part of the inspiration for the way in which Labour approached the 2017 general election,” he said, “where we went to a very low position in the polls to being the biggest swing to the Labour Party in a general election since 1945.”
Steve Howell, a former Labour strategist, agreed that Sanders’ insurgent 2016 primary challenge influenced thinking within the Corbyn campaign.
“I was not alone among Corbyn’s supporters in reflecting on what Labour could learn from the Sanders campaign,” he wrote in 2018. “Not only was there considerable common ground on policy, they were both ‘anti-establishment’ politicians who had the authenticity and credibility, on the one hand, to counter the right-wing populism of Donald Trump and [Brexit leader] Nigel Farage and, on the other, to inspire and mobilise young people on a scale not seen for a generation.”
In Canada, Israel, Germany and Spain, progressive politicians have also hailed the Vermont senator on social media and in interviews, often speaking favorably of his Medicare-for-All proposal, non-interventionist foreign policy, and advocacy for the Green New Deal. Sometimes, the excitement is borderline giddy: Stefan Liebich, a Left member of the German Bundestag, recently posted a photo of himself on social media holding a Sanders figurine, adding, “#feelthebern.”
To both Sanders and his supporters around the world, it is impossible to fight climate change without international cooperation. To that end, a group called the “Progressive International” was announced at a convention last year held by the Sanders Institute, a think tank founded by the presidential contender’s wife and son.

The network of left-wing politicians and activists hopes to fight against “the global war being waged against workers, against our environment, against democracy, against decency,” according to its website.
Niki Ashton, a Canadian member of Parliament who joined Sanders in launching Progressive International, said the senator “has shifted the conversations both in the U.S. and around the world.”
In the eyes of progressives across the globe, left-wing populism is needed to take on right-wing authoritarians such as Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, who recently met with President Trump.
“The far right have internationalised,” Ross Greer, a Green member of Scottish Parliament who went on the TV show “Scotland Tonight” to declare his support for Sanders, told POLITICO. “They cooperate and coordinate across borders, so if we are to defeat them, we need to do the same. Bernie gets that in a way I’ve not seen from any other presidential candidate.”
At a 2018 speech at Johns Hopkins University, which criticized the Trump administration’s relationship with Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and others, Sanders spoke of the need to stop the “growing worldwide movement toward authoritarianism.”
“All around the world, in Europe, in Russia, in the Middle East, in Asia, Latin America, and elsewhere we are seeing movements led by demagogues who exploit people’s fears, prejudices and grievances to gain and hold onto power,” he said. “We need to counter oligarchic authoritarianism with a strong global progressive movement that speaks to the needs of working people.”
Leftist leaders across the globe look back at the dynamics of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and its connection to the rise of right-wing populism and nationalism, and envision Sanders playing a similarly catalytic role on the left if he emerges as the Democratic nominee.
In the run-up to the 2016 election, Farage campaigned for Trump, and even joined him at a rally in Mississippi. Steve Bannon, Trump’s campaign chief executive at the time, avidly backed the UK’s efforts to withdraw from the European Union.
The embrace from left-wing politicians overseas, however, could pose a threat to a candidate who has been attacked in the past for expressing sympathy for leftist governments hostile to the United States, including Nicaragua and Cuba in the 1980s. More recently, Sanders’ reluctance to to call Venezuelan strongman Nicolas Maduro a dictator, or to recognize Juan Guaidó as the interim president of the country — the position adopted by the U.S. and a majority of Latin American countries and European countries — drew criticism even from within the Democratic Party
Sanders’ staffers downplay concerns that support from socialist politicians abroad will foster the impression that his views are out of the American mainstream — which is shaping up as a central GOP argument against Democratic candidates — arguing that Republicans will label any Democratic nominee as extreme.

“They’re always going to do that, no matter who the candidate is, because they don’t want to have a debate about how Americans deserve health care,” said Matt Duss, Sanders’ foreign policy adviser. “They don’t want to have a debate about making sure prosperity is broadly shared.”
Within the Democratic primary field, the issue is perhaps less relevant: Close to six-in-10 Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents have a positive view of socialism, according to a Gallup poll last year, and, unlike in past years, Democrats now have a more positive image of socialism than they do of capitalism.
And at a time of strained American relationships abroad, Holdsworth said, “Another world leader praising an American elected official is a good thing in the age of Trump.”
What’s clear is that Sanders’ fate will be closely watched beyond U.S. borders, where many on the left see his campaign as testing the American appetite for left-wing policies and a global progressive movement in a way that no other Democratic candidate does.
“Bernie Sanders is very exciting as part of an international movement against neoliberal economic inequality,” said Burgon. “Given that he’s gained so much appeal in the United States … where that’s a place where these progressive ideas would find it hard to get a following through the political mainstream, I think people in the UK and around the world have found that particularly inspiring.”

2020 elections

Sanders is viewed abroad as a potential figurehead for a worldwide movement against right-wing populism.

Bernie Sanders has a base that no other 2020 candidate can claim: left-wing politicians around the globe.

From South America to Europe to the Middle East, leftist leaders are celebrating his candidacy, viewing him as an iconic democratic socialist with the potential to lead a worldwide progressive movement at a time when right-wing populism is on the rise across the map.

3:41 AM 4/4/2019 – My preliminary impressions of Donald Trump’s psychiatric problems, in one paragraph: Learning Disability and Depression – M.N.

Michael_Novakhov shared this story from The Trump Investigations Blog by Michael Novakhov – Review Of News And Opinions.

M.N.: My preliminary impressions of Donald Trump’s psychiatric problems, in one paragraph: 

Donald Trump was and is learning disabled, dyslexic, this might explain his spelling difficulties and the repetitive phrases (the term is “Palilalia“).  He was born this way, and his family tried to hide this. This “explains” the peculiarities of his thinking and behavior. He does not understand this world (who does?), and tries to survive in it (nicely). He fits this syndrome, and the bullishness comes with it: he perceives the world as hostile and potentially aggressive (isn’t it?). However, in and by itself this “learning disability” does not automatically imply the cognitive and intellectual deficits, and it should not really interfere with his duties as President. Donald appears to be quite depressed, irritable, irascible, angry, enraged, “MAD”, and he has good and various reasons to be depressed and “mad”. 
None of his “psychiatric problems” explain away or justify his political and legal problems, these are the different “universes”. Donald can be considered our first learning disabled President. 
To summarize: there is a subtle organic component in Donald Trump’s speech patterns, thinking, and behavior which is consistent with the certain features of the Learning Disability Syndrome, but they should not interfere with his overall capacity to discharge his duties as the President.
