Tim Ryan calls JD Vance an ‘ass-kisser’ after Trump remarks

A report in The Washington Post reveals that half of the money raised by Donald Trump’s Save America political action committees has been spent on his legal bills and two nonprofits employing former members of his administration rather than Republican congressional campaigns.

The group has contributed about $8.4m so far directly to Republican campaigns and committees while devoting $7m to the former president’s lawyers and another $2m to the two nonprofits.

Meanwhile, an extract from an upcoming book on the GOP’s support for Mr Trump has revealed new details of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s infamous call with Mr Trump during the January 6 Capitol riot.

According to Politico, when Mr Trump told Mr McCarthy that the people storming the building were “more upset” than his party about the supposed theft of the election, Mr McCarthy responded: “More upset? They’re trying to f***ing kill me!”

Ideas for Trump response to George Floyd murder included Kanye West church service

In the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd by police officers in May 2020, White House staff wanted to show that then-president Donald Trump was engaged in the broader national conversation about racial discrimination, according to Maggie Haberman’s new book.

This reportedly included the suggestion that Kanye West lead a “healing church service on the South Lawn” of the White House.

Chief of Staff Mark Meadows pushed back saying that Trump supporters did not like the rapper, Haberman writes, and so the idea went nowhere.

Save America PAC spends almost half funds on Trump lawyers, report says

The Washington Post reports that half of the money raised by Donald Trump’s Save America PAC has been spent on his legal bills and two nonprofits employing former members of his administration rather than Republican congressional campaigns.

The group has contributed about $8.4 million so far directly to Republican campaigns and committees, while devoting $7 million to Trump’s lawyers and another $2 million to the nonprofits, which employ former members of his administration, including former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows. Legal fees are expected to climb, Trump advisers say, as he employs a growing retinue of lawyers to fend off federal, state and county-level investigations.

Christina Bobb: a perspective

The news that Trump lawyer Christina Bobb has talked to investigators probing the Mar-a-Lago documents came with a crucial detail: the false statement she signed included a disclaimer that the information she was testifying to had been “provided” to her, rather than coming from her directly.

This has left many onlookers pointing out that Ms Bobb would not have insisted this be added just in case it became relevant…

More on the Clinton nuclear codes story

As the documents found by the FBI at Mar-a-Lago are reviewed by a court-appointed special master, Mr Trump has turned to another line of defence: pointing to former presidents’ supposed mishandling of sensitive documents.

His latest claim, or rather the latest he has recirculated, is an old story alleging that Bill Clinton briefly mislaid the nuclear codes at the end of his presidency.

Mr Trump shared the story on Truth Social in the form of a tweet from Buzz Patterson, who served as a senior military aide to Mr Clinton from 1996 to 1998, during which time he was one of a handful of people who carried the so-called “nuclear football”.

But is the story true – and if it is, what bearing, if any, does it have on the current imbroglio?

Did Bill Clinton really ‘lose’ the nuclear codes as Trump claimed?

A Trump-supporting Clinton administration veteran has repeated an old story about the misplacement of the nuclear ‘biscuit’. Regardless of its relevance to the mishandling of records at Mar-a-Lago, the truth of the tale is still unclear

ICYMI: Trump lawyer has talked to feds in Mar-a-Lago probe

According to NBC News, one of Donald Trump’s attorneys, Christina Bobb, met with federal investigators on Friday to provide information on two other attorneys who had a hand in submitting a false statement to the government.

The Friday meeting reportedly ended with Ms Bobb naming Mr Trump’s previous lead counsel, Evan Corcoran, as the person who drafted a false certification telling the Department of Justice that the ex-president had turned over all classified documents in his possession.

Ms Bobb, who was one of Mr Trump’s official custodians of records at the time, also named Trump lawyer Boris Epshteyn as having been involved in the discussions leading up to submission of the false statement but did not have a role in drafting it.

Trump-backed candidate apparently flailing as Libertarian rises

Among the several Trump-backed candidates who are struggling to pull even in supposedly winnable races is Arizona’s Blake Masters, who has become a controversial figure thanks to his history of racist online posts and extreme positions.

Now, a new poll has shown that his support has still not improved – and that instead, Libertarian Party candidate Marc Victor is apparently gaining ground.

Even assuming that all of Mr Victo’s voters are in fact reluctant Republicans who will “come home” to Mr Masters in November, the 15 points he garners in the poll would only just put Mr Masters ahead of his Demcoratic rival, incumbent Mark Kelly.

Kinzinger backs state-level Democratic candidates

Adam Kinzinger, one of two Republicans sitting on the January 6 select committee, has issued a batch of endorsements – and is backing a list of Democrats.

Specifically, he is getting behind nominees for secretary of state posts and governorships, the two offices that in every state carry the most power when it comes to overseeing and influencing the execution and certification of election results.

Among the states where Mr Kinzinger is weighing in is Pennsylvania, whose GOP gubernatorial nominee Doug Mastriano attended Donald Trump’s 6 January rally and has repeatedly propagated conspiracy theories about the “theft” of the 2020 election.

Cassidy Hutchinson reportedly testifies in Georgia election probe

The former White House aide whose bombshell testimony gave House January 6 committee members a window into former president Donald Trump’s actions on the day of the Capitol riot is reportedly cooperating with a Georgia-based criminal probe into Mr Trump’s push to overturn the 2020 election there.

According to CNN, former Mark Meadows assistant Cassidy Hutchinson is now aiding Fulton County, Georgia, district attorney Fani Willis’ ongoing probe into whether Mr Trump or his associates violated Georgia election laws by pressuring Peach State officials to throw out ballots after Mr Trump became the first Republican to lose there in decades.

GOP trying to weaken Democrats’ grip on Texas border

As Democrats embark on another October blitz in pursuit of flipping America’s biggest red state, Republicans are taking a swing of their own: making a play for the mostly Hispanic southern border on 8 November after years of writing off the region that is overwhelmingly controlled by Democrats.

The story behind Trump’s claim that Bush senior stashed documents in a bowling alley

Donald Trump accused former president George HW Bush of hiding classified documents in a “bowling alley” during a rally in Arizona on Sunday.

Mr Trump claimed that many former presidents had stored millions of pages of documents in warehouses “with damaged main doors”.

The former president said that senior Bush “took millions and millions of documents to a former bowling alley pieced together with what was then an old and broken Chinese restaurant”.

“They put them together. And it had a broken front door and broken windows. Other than that it was quite secure,” Mr Trump added.
