First Daughter, Ivanka, is a Liar, just like her Lying Father

Ivanka Trump’s Denial That Dad Interfered In Security Clearances Doesn’t Age Well

Trump Ordered Officials to Give Jared Kushner a Security Clearance

WASHINGTON — President Trump ordered his chief of staff to grant his son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, a top-secret security clearance last year, overruling concerns flagged by intelligence officials and the White House’s top lawyer, four people briefed on the matter said. Mr. Trump’s decision in May so troubled senior administration officials that at least one, the White House chief of staff at the time, John F. Kelly, wrote a contemporaneous internal memo about how he had been “ordered” to give Mr. Kushner the top-secret clearance. 

 The White House counsel at the time, Donald F. McGahn II, also wrote an internal memo outlining the concerns that had been raised about Mr. Kushner — including by the C.I.A. — and how Mr. McGahn had recommended that he not be given a top-secret clearance.

Read the way the dishonest Trump suck-ups deal with Trump's dishonesty:

Michael Cohen might as well have a Day declared for him, that’s how excited the Left is over his testimony. More testimonies expected now as DJT’s CFO is going to have to come in and talk. Yikes, as if no rich businessmen cook books from time to time? “Nope, JUST TRUMP” is the message. Ridiculous, but, as I like to remind, CONTEXT IS LOST ON THE LEFT. There will now start “multiple probes”

The person who wrote that is annoyed that America should hold its president to a higher level of honesty than common crooks who "cook the books from time to time." I'm not making this up. Just read it for yourselves. Trump has turned the GOP into a crook-admiration society! She's pissed that we expect a president to not be a crook! Holy Shyte!

This is a beaut as well:

Fordham school is confirming that the Trump Team threatened the school if they released DJT’s grades. We still haven’t seen Obama’s school records, but I’m thinking nobody was actually ‘threatened.’ ugh…do people think threatening people won’t be exposed some day?

So Fordam confirms that the Thug in Chief threatened them, through Cohen, if they released Trump's grades. The blogger then makes a leap with absolutely no evidence whatsoever, that probably Obama did the same and it will be exposed some day. She must have the most flexible back from bending over backwards to excuse Trump's miserable thuggish and dishonest behavior.

That, Shaw, is what a Trump supporter has sunk to 2 years into lthe Liar-in-Chief failure of a presidency.

And her last lament:


Nowhere in her lament does she understand that all of these "SO MANY THINGS" are the direct result of Trump's dishonesty, stupidity, and lying.

She is part of a lost and sad tribe who excuse the most atrocious person to ever be POTUS.

Thanks for following Trump's Cultists so that we don't have to.
The problem with all of them is that they refuse to see what is in front of their noses, so they blame and exuse all of the Trump Crime Family's corruption. Those bloggers a spitting mad that the guy they support is being exposed as the dirty slimebag that he is.

I find it laughable that they actually think it's no big deal for the POTUS to break the law because other people have done it too. Their bogus claim about President Obama is sickening. When they find out what a dirtbag Trump is, they immediately conjure up in their fevered gelantinous brains the idea that Mr. Obama PROBABLY did it too.

Those folks on the Mother Ship are the as awful as the man they support. How could any sane person think otherwise?

Thank you for you diligence in exposing these cultists.

Ms.Shaw, what happened to Russian collusion? Is that now a dead issue? What are we moving on to?

Shaw Kenawe said...

Nothing happened to Russian collusion. Why do you ask?

It just that Trump and his family are so corrupt and sleazy that it is difficult to keep up with all their duplicities and criminalities.

Just this past week we learned the depths of Trump's slime: Like a mafioso, Trump threatened Fordham if it revealed his grades.

We learned that he wrote out a check in the Oval Office to the porn star that he shagged while Melania was recovering from giving birth to his 5th child by his 3rd wife.

We learned that he lied to the American people (Oh SURPRISE!) when he said he had no business with Russia, when in fact he was still planning for a Trump Tower in Moscow after he won the GOP nomination.

We learned that Trump took the side of a the Communist Korean leader who hadan American killed.

And we just found out that against the wishes of his Chief of Staff, General Kelly, and his top security advisors, Trump gave his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, top security clearance, for Gawd only knows what reasons.

And to put the cherry on top, both Trump and his clueless daughter bald-faced LIED about it ON RECORD. Why?

So you see the present POTUS so reeks with corruption, malfeasance, and high crimes that it's difficult to keep his villany straight.

Russian collusion may be the least of his worries at this point.

Thank you for asking. I hope this cleared up your confusion.

That's quite a litany of transgressions you've listed Ms.Shaw, in your opinion which ones are illegal?

Shaw Kenawe said...

I'm not a lawyer. I'll wait to see what Mr. Mueller reports and what charges the SDNY brings agains the Trump Crime Family.

I do know this: If only one of those "transgressions" were reported on President Obama, the GOPers in Congress would already have started impeachment proceedings. That the GOP tolerates, excuses, and defends a lying slimebag like Trump is no less than astounding.

Ray Cranston said...

The Trumpanzees are amazing. No matter what they learn about their dirtbag Trump, the remain devoted to him. That must be because they're scum as well. I swear I've never seen anything like the blind devotion and willful ignorance of a Trump supporter.

Anonymous said...

Ms.Shaw, in spite of all your fond memories and wishing and hoping Obama is gone and he ain't coming back.
You may very well have to get used to another 5+ years of Trump.

Shaw Kenawe said...

To Anonymous,

I'm not wishing or hoping for Mr. Obama to "come back." Mr. Obama's legacy is secure.

I do know that he is more admired than the pig you support. He's been voted the most admired man in America for the past 11 years, even during Con the Copn's stlen presidency. And there is no way, unless Russia helps him again, that the corrupt Trump will get re-elected. The last election showed us that. Trump can't win when he's been underwater for his job approval since his inauguration.

He's never been over 50% approval.

Dream on.

Anonymous said...

Well Ms.Shaw, perhaps you are correct about the 2020 election but on the other hand you may want to prepare for the worst and steele yourself for another four years of blogging.

ORAXX said...

No other President would have hired Ivanka Trump and her husband in any capacity, let alone tried getting them security clearances.

Shaw Kenawe said...

To Anonymous, Thanks, but perhaps it is YOU who needs to prepare.

ORAXX, Neither of those two have any experience or knowledge to have earned their security clearance. They probably got the clearances so that they can further their business connections and deals. That's all that matter to the Trump Crime Family.

Dervish Sanders said...

Ivanka and Don Jr could still be charged for their involvement in the SoHo fraud. How many Trumps will ultimately end up behind bars, I wonder. And how long will it take? It will take awhile, I think. But I really hope we get them and they are put away for a long time. Daddy tRump deserves a life sentence for his life of crime... culminating with treason.

Shaw Kenawe said...

This is for Anonymous who actually believes Trump will be re-elected in 2020:

The evidence presented on Wednesday was of course harmful to the president, but Mr. Cohen quite likely revealed only a small fraction of what the Southern District of New York and the Mueller investigation have amassed. But Mr. Cohen did suggest that federal prosecutors are investigating unspecified criminal allegations involving the president that have not been made public.

When this story is finally told — when the sordid details are revealed, the dots finally connected — the Republican Party will be the political and institutional version of Mr. Cohen, who squandered his integrity in the service of a man of borderless corruption.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Dervish, I hope you've made enough popcorn to watch the Trump follies.

Anonymous above has cautioned me to be ready for 6 more years of a Trump presidency. He/She is a perfect example of why Trump still holds onto his base: They live in an alternate universe where Trump is, to them, Captain Wonderful, when in fact he's nothing more than a common, ordinary corrupt politician with a crime family.

Even the captain of the Mother Ship, according to commenter Ray, is surprised that Americans would be shocked to learn that their president is a "cook the books" crook. After all, doesn't every businessman do that? The bar for their president is so low, it's sub-sewer and they still think he's Captain Wonderful.

"when in fact he's nothing more than a common, ordinary corrupt politician with a crime family."

True. What seems to be uncommon is the way Americans elected him president knowing what he is.

For whatever crazy reason, his base is solid. Highlighting his crimes on a daily basis doesn't seem to effect his base numbers.

All that is needed is a third party candidate, or more to split the vote and Trump could win in 2020.

Dave Miller said...

Anon and the rest of you crazy conservatives...

Please explain this to us...

President Trump has every right to override his national security folks and give Jared a Top Secret security clearance. So why did he lie about it? All he ever had to do was say "I gave him the clearance, as I am permitted by the Constitution to do."

But he didn't do that.


Why did President Trump willfully choose to lie when he didn't have to?

Can anyone answer that?

Dave Miller said...

Jerry... and Anon... I do think Trump is gonna win again in 2020, if he's not out before that.
