Trump’s Actions Since Taking Office Have Robert Mueller’s Team Asking Questions

Among the things being closely examined by special counsel Robert Mueller would be the post-election antics of Donald Trump.

According to a new report in the New York Times, the firing of FBI Director James Comey, national security adviser Michael Flynn, and the Oval Office meeting Trump had with two Russian officials are on his radar.

In recent weeks, Mr. Mueller’s office sent a document to the White House that detailed 13 different areas that investigators want more information about. Since then, administration lawyers have been scouring White House emails and asking officials whether they have other documents or notes that may pertain to Mr. Mueller’s requests.

One of the requests is about a meeting Mr. Trump had in May with Russian officials in the Oval Office the day after James B. Comey, the F.B.I. director, was fired. That day, Mr. Trump met with the Russian foreign minister, Sergey V. Lavrov, and the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey I. Kislyak, along with other Russian officials. The New York Times reportedthat in the meeting Mr. Trump had said that firing Mr. Comey relieved “great pressure” on him.

That would be the meeting where the Russian officials reportedly had a good chuckle when reporters mentioned Comey’s firing.

That’s also the meeting where Trump revealed sensitive information about the movements of an Israeli spy embedded with ISIS in Syria, potentially putting his life in danger.

There’s more.

Mueller also wants to know about Trump’s hand in crafting the (false) statement given by Donald Trump Jr., regarding the June 2016 meeting with a Kremlin-connected attorney.

Because people with nothing to hide don’t need to lie.

Ty Cobb, the lawyer Mr. Trump hired to provide materials related to the Russia investigation to the special counsel and Congress, has told Mr. Mueller’s office that he will turn over many of the documents this week.

“We can’t comment on any specific requests being made or our conversations with the special counsel,’’ he said.

But somebody is commenting, and it sounds like this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Melania Takes on the Issue of Bullying, and the Loony Left Turns Right Around and Bullies Her

First Lady Melania Trump addressed a luncheon at the U.N. today, and she had the issue of cyberbullying on her mind. She spoke of the need for adults and online influencers to put an end to cyberbullying by setting a good example for children, saying, “We must turn our focus right now to the message and content they are exposed to on a daily basis through social media, the bullying, the experience online and in person.”

She continued, “We must teach every child the values of empathy and communication that are at the core of the kindness, mindfulness, integrity and leadership which can only be taught from example.” Something all grown-ups should be able to agree on, right?

Not so much.

As if on cue, the loony left took to Twitter and began a cyberbullying campaign against Melania. Some mocked her for the bright pink dress she wore to the speech.

Others, like this anonymous charmer who likely lives in his mother’s basement and lets the fact that he’d never stand a chance with a woman like Melania eat away at his soul, took the opportunity to call her a “porn model whore.”

Mike T belittles the First Lady as nothing more than gyrating tranny.

The First Lady, whether by choice or by necessity, has taken on an issue that plagues communities throughout the country. We read nearly every day of a child who took their life because they were bullied online; Melania’s own son, 11-year-old Barron, has been the target of online bullies. She’s a mom who feels the pain of her child being hurt by anonymous cowards, and this is something all too many American families can relate to.

Leftists have become boringly predictable. Of course they’d react to a speech about bullying by bullying the person who gave the speech. Hate is all they know.

Unimaginable: Puerto Rico Is Completely Without Power (Video)

(AP Photos/Carlos Giusti)

In 2017, when much of the Western world has had electricity for almost a century, it is hard to imagine an entire population of 3.5 million suddenly out of power.

As Hurricane Maria, a category 4 storm with winds hitting 150 mph, ravages the Caribbean, the U.S. territory island of Puerto Rico is reportedly completely without power, according to officials.

Being thrown into an existence without electricity often exposes just how reliant our lives have become on utilities and devices Mother Nature can wipe out without care or recourse.

Puerto Rico had barely two weeks to start assessing the damage of Hurricane Irma, let alone begin to recover, before Maria struck.

Red Cross shelters across the island are taking in residents, many of whom have never sought shelter during a storm before.

Maria is the strongest hurricane to hit the island since 1932.

Our prayers and hearts go out to all those affected during this hurricane season.

North Korean Defector Reveals Barbaric Ways Citizens are Executed and Put Into Sex Slavery

New information has surfaced about just how brutal the Kim regime is toward its own citizens, and not just toward criminals, defectors, or undesirables, but to the upper class as well.

According to the Mirror, North Korean defector, 26-year-old going by Hee Yeon Lim, is the daughter of a man who was a senior official within the Kim regime. At great risk to her own life, Hee gave an interview to the Mirror from a secret location in Seoul, South Korea.

According to Hee, she and her family escaped her state appropriated home in Pyongyang to South Korea after her father, Colonel Wui Yeon Lim, died at the age of 51.

Hee told the Mirror that she had, what she thought, was a normal life in North Korea’s capitol. She was driven to, and picked up from school everyday in a state provided car. She was very careful about her speech, speaking only adoration for the Kim regime. She says she also had a boyfriend.

However, Hee said the carefully controlled lifestyle she lived was a mask to cover a dark secret.

“Despite our privilege we were scared. I saw terrible things in Pyongyang,” said Hee.

According to the Mirror, Hee and the other upper class children were taken out of school where they were forced to witness the public execution of 11 musicians who had made a video that was considered disagreeable by the regime.

She recalls: “We were ordered to leave our classes by security men and made to travel to the Military Academy in Pyongyang. There is a sports ground there, a kind of stadium.

“The musicians were brought out, tied up, hooded and apparently gagged, so they could not make a noise, not beg for mercy or even scream.

“What I saw that day made me sick in my stomach. They were lashed to the end of anti-aircraft guns.

“There were around 10,000 people ordered to watch that day and I was standing 200 feet from these victims.

“A gun was fired, the noise was deafening, absolutely terrifying and the guns were fired one after the other.

“The musicians just disappeared each time the guns were fired into them. Their bodies were blown to bits, totally destroyed, blood and bits flying everywhere.

“And then after that military tanks moved in and they ran over the bits on the ground where the remains lay.

Hee told the Mirror that the executions were too much for her. She became ill, and wouldn’t eat for days afterward.

According to the Daily Caller, death by anti-aircraft gun isn’t uncommon. In February, Kim executed five senior officials for giving inaccurate reports. Another senior official was executed for merely dozing off during a meeting with Kim in the same way.

The execution wasn’t the only thing that solidified Hee’s decision to flee North Korea with her family. Hee told the Mirror that the pretty girls were often taken out of schools in order to learn to become Kim’s sex slaves at his various estates.

“Officials came to our schools and picked out teenage girls to work at one of his “hundreds” of homes around Pyongyang.

“They take the prettiest and ensure they have straight, good legs.

“They learn to serve him food like caviar and extremely rare delicacies. They are also taught how to massage him and they become sex slaves.

“Yes, they have to sleep with him and they cannot make a mistake or object because they could very easily simply disappear.”

When asked what happened if they became pregnant, Hee answered “maybe the same.” Girls that don’t become pregnant are eventually discarded, and given to high-ranking officials for marriage.
