Default A Portrait of the White House and Its Culture of Dishonesty

By Peter Baker and Maggie Haberman

Quote:
WASHINGTON — As President Trump met with advisers in the Oval Office in May 2017 to discuss replacements for the F.B.I. director he had just fired, Attorney General Jeff Sessions slipped out of the room to take a call...

The report by Robert S. Mueller III shows a hotbed of conflict defined by a President who lies and tries to get his staff to lie for him.

At one juncture after another, President Trump gave in to anger in ways that turned aides into witnesses against him.
I hope you will read the rest and appreciate I typed this myself copying excerpts from my phone (long story )


your thoughts on the President's dishonesty?

YEs, Yes, Yess…; This President has surrounded himself with liars, thieves and cheats. We all know that Salty.

Had he wanted to avoid associations with such company, instead of leaving the relative virtue of New York City society, he should not have moved in with the Liars, Lawyers and Leeches of Washington D.C.

BTW, Nothing of the "notes" you posted without context means a damm thing.

The short article is hidden behind a NYT paywall. There's not a chance I will pay for NYT articles. I didn't find other than the couple blurbs you posted what you labored over.

Anyway I am very sad and scared at the status of our government with this guy in office. Very untrustworthy-understatement.

If it is true that President Trump asked others to obstruct justice, on his behalf--and all that stood in the way of his committing obstruction was their refusal to do so--that is genuinely disturbing.

On the other hand, the fact that the Mueller report shows no evidence of collusion with the Russians should be a point about which we can all be quite happy. Yet some appear to be rather unhappy about this fact.

It has been well said that this report is the quintessential Rorschach (ink-blot) test: One is likely to see in it whatever one wishes to see...
