Hillary Clinton is Always on Donald Trump's Mind

President Donald Trump angrily lashed out at unnamed Republican lawmakers on Sunday, saying they should "protect" him as repayment for his 2016 election coattails.

In a series of tweets, the president is accusing Republicans of not protecting him and criticizing their handling of the health care overhaul.

The President, however, did not mention any names.

US Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer warns of a "cataclysm" in Washington if President Donald Trump instructs the Justice Department to dismiss special counsel Robert Mueller. "That is really something, in my opinion, he needs to look at because what concerns me the most, is anything that can be held over the President's head that could influence USA policy, that would be among most powerful form of kompromat". The ban on impeachment pardons is in Article II, which says the president has the power "to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States, except in cases of impeachment". "I want to know the entire truth", Rubio said.

Sekulow, appearing in Denver Saturday night, was responding to questions from reporters about Trump's tweet earlier Saturday that he has "complete power" to grant pardons.

Trump was at the Trump National Golf Club in Potomac Falls, Virginia on Sunday, but had returned to the White House around 3:00 PM, an hour or so before firing off the tweets.

"I'm not concerned, because if they don't they will be subpoenaed", said Feinstein.

"Whether it applies to the president himself I think ultimately would be a matter for the court to decide, if it were ever to come into existence", he continued.

Incoming communications director Anthony Scaramucci, however, told CNN's Jake Tapper he had discussed the issue with Mr Sekulow. While Trump can't quite get the entire party on board in the Senate for the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, overall, the party has been nearly too supportive of the President, at least if you ask those on the left.

Doing so was a major Trump campaign pledge, and he has made clear the details matter little to him; he and top aides say he would sign whatever the Senate GOP caucus can agree on.
