Donald Trump warns against 'socialist nightmare' at conservative conference

With special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation seemingly approaching its end, Trump spoke of the "collusion delusion" and lashed out at newly empowered House Democrats, who are opening new inquiries involving him.

"We believe in the American dream, not in the socialist nightmare", he said to boisterous applause from hundreds of supporters at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) near Washington. That timeline has evolved over the course of the investigation, with Trump associates saying the project was not entertained during the presidential election to Trump eventually telling the special counsel, according to his lawyer, those conversations may have extended much deeper into the 2016 campaign.

President Trump assailed Michael Cohen as a "liar" on Sunday, but said that his former lawyer's congressional testimony earlier this week "proved" that there was no collusion between the campaign and Russian Federation.

But making that fact disappear is central to Trumpian propaganda: Trump also quoted the buffoonish Ari Fleischer literally describing the 2016 campaign as the "last election", the verdict of which Democrats should heed by. not launching investigations.

Cohen admitted telling falsities in the past, but said he was coming clean: "I have lied, but I am not a liar".

"Now Robert Mueller never received a vote and neither did the person who appointed him", he added. NY prosecutors also are looking into Mr. Trump's inaugural fund.

"They give you the pluses or the minuses, whatever the concerns are", McCarthy said.

"That is something that we will have to await Bob Mueller's report and the underlying evidence to determine". Nadler has helped lead the charge to pressure the Justice Department to release the full report to the public.

"I think the New Green Deal or whatever the hell they call it - the Green New Deal - I encourage it", Trump said mockingly as he wound up for a round of exaggeration.

Trump's fierce political campaign against what he calls Mueller's "Witch Hunt" and "hoax" investigation is apparently aimed at discrediting any conclusions that Barr choses to share with Congress and the public. It's our job to protect the rule of law. They specifically seek information about any such payments or offers made "on or after November 8, 2016 to (a) Donald Trump or his Business Interests; (b) Trump Organization; (c) Jared Kushner or his Business Interests; (d) Ivanka Trump or her Business Interests; or (e) the 58th Presidential Inaugural Committee".
