The US Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein announced on Wednesday that he has appointed Robert S. Mueller III, the former F.B.I. director, to serve as a special counsel to oversee its investigation into Russian meddling in the election.  He will have the power to look into anything he wants including Trump's tax returns.  He will also be able to call the President to testify and persure criminal proceedings.

The Washington Post reported that President Trump released classified info to the Russians that could be used to compromise American intelligence resources.

President Trump seems to be on the ropes and it is only round one.   Please, someone throw in the towel.  This guy is getting beaten to a pulp.  He is out of his depth and over his head.   His ego will will push him into truly dangerous waters.   Now he is off to play nuclear war...watch out!

The investigation into Trump and Russia took a turn when Trump fired the Director of the FBI for investigating possible collusion to fix the election he won.  They may have him on interfering and coverup.   This is reinforced by Trumps own admission that he thought the investigation was an attempt by the Democrates to change the election results.  So by his own admission his reason for firing Comey had to do at least in part because of the Trump Russia investigation.  That is definately an attempt to derail the FBI investigation into himself.

If Trump was involved in helping the Russians launder money then that is another way he could be impeached.  It seems to me that the FBI, The congressional Committee, the Senate or the CIA could subpoena Donald Trump's tax returns.  This would be a very inexpensive and sure fire way to find out who paid who for what and when.  It will show which foreign governments have him by the blank and reveal whether or not he broke the law in his business dealings.

Last time I looked interfering with and/or obstructing an FBI investigation was against the law and a President who breaks the law can be impeached.  

One of the the subjects of the Russian investigation is the one doing the obstruction of an investigation into possible treasonous behaviour of himself and the Russians.   Is that not proof that he is aiding the Russian interference in the US elections?  

So why doesnt the FBI arrest the President?....Or is the President above the law?  Obviously he thinks he is above the law.  The LAW needs to step up to the plate here and set him straight..

UNITED NATIONS, Apr 25 2017 (IPS) - Despite progress, many gaps remain in international indigenous rights protection, said representatives during an annual UN meeting.

More than 1000 indigenous representatives from around the world have gathered at the UN for the 16th session of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII). This year’s meeting focuses on the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) which was adopted 10 years ago by the General Assembly.

Yet again US disrespects the rule international law. Under the Charter of the United Nations is an important Chapter; Chapter VI- the peaceful resolution of disputes. Unfortunately, the US usually bypasses Chapter VI and goes to Chapter VII which does, if supported by the UNSC, legitimize an invasion, and when the US does not receive the support of the UNSC, the US acts, independently.   In this case, Trump did not even attempt to receive support of the UNSC, and did not wait for an investigation into the claim,about the source of the chemical weapons, made by Russia’sForeign Minister Sergei Lavrov  Sergei Lavrov opposed the invasions of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya, all of which were condemned by Trump during the election.

Social movement leaders from groups across the progressive spectrum launched a campaign on Tuesday denouncing President Donald Trump's proposed $54 billion increase in the U.S. military budget, which is coming at the expense of the environment, education, human and civil rights protections, and public health.

The #No54BillionforWar effort is launching on the 50-year anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s speech "Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break the Silence," which warned that "a nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death."

Ray Acheson

 

Over the past two days, about 120 governments have participated in nuclear ban talks at the United Nations, determined to move ahead even though nuclear-armed states like the United States are refusing to participate and pressuring allies to do the same. The high-level segment of the meeting, which invited government ministers and UN permanent representatives to speak, was scheduled to end on Monday but ran until lunchtime on Tuesday due to overwhelming interest. States continued to cite the “historic nature” of the negotiations, with the delegate from Liechtenstein observing that “the broad and high-level representation today shows strong political support for this process.”

A diverse set of delegations continued to set out their vision of the fu

ROME/BERLIN, Mar 30 2017 (IPS) - The governments of Australia, Canada, the UK and the US need to close glaring legal loopholes to prevent the corrupt elite from laundering the proceeds of grand corruption in their local real estate markets, a major anti-corruption watchdog urges.

The Berlin-based Transparency International (TI), a global anti-corruption movement working in over 100 countries, on March 29 issued a new report, Doors Wide Open: Corruption and Real Estate in Key Markets, in which it identifies the 10 main problems related to real estate and money laundering in those four countries and makes recommendations on how to address them.

The report focuses on four countries that are known hot-spots for the corrupt to invest and launder money.
