Donald Trump has apparently chosen his nickname for Pete Buttigieg: Mad magazine mascot Alfred E. Neuman.

Said Trump to Politico: “Alfred E. Neuman cannot become president of the United States.”

Trump made his first public attack on Buttigieg on Wednesday night at a rally in Florida.

Said Trump: “We got some real beauties. We got a choice between Sleepy Joe and Crazy Bernie. I’ll take any of them, let’s just pick somebody please and let’s start this thing.”

“Pick somebody!” he demanded, looking into the crowd. “We have a young man, Butt-ig-ieg, boot-edge-edge, they say edgeedge,” said Trump.

“He’s got a great chance doesn’t he?” Trump asked dismissively. “He’ll be great. He’ll be great. Representing us against President Xi of China. I want to be in that room, I want to watch that.”

Buttigieg responded to the attack on Thursday, saying, “You can’t get too worried about the name calling and the games he plays. I was thinking of a Chinese proverb that goes, when the wind changes, some people build walls and some people build windmills. You gotta recognize that we need something that is completely different from what is in this White House. The negotiations that they are conducting, whether it’s on trade or things like North Korea, are usually a personal high-wire act with no safety net.”

If anyone needs to be investigated, it’s Rudy Giuliani. Rudy was “a lobbyist for Kharkiv and Ukraine” but failed to register under FARA. His clients, Pavel Fuks and Gennadiy Kernes, have reported ties to organized crime. How is he different than Manafort? nytimes.com/2019/05/09/us/…

Our Verdict:
Comey remains convinced he did the right thing.



Donald Trump could well be under control of the Russian government, according to the man Trump fired as FBI director months after taking office as president.

While it was up to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation to determine the criminal aspects of potential collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, the counterintelligence investigation into “whether the Russians had leverage over the president,” said Jim Comey, who served as FBI director from 2013 until 2017.

Asked whether the Russians have that leverage over Trump, Comey replied he didn’t know but “yes” it was possible.

Speaking on CNN, Comey also addressed reports and allegations that in 2016 he ordered “spying” on the Trump campaign.

Comey said that he couldn’t explain why Attorney General William “Bill” Barr calls it “spying.”

“I can’t explain it. The only explanation I can think of is he used it because the president uses it, which is really disappointing,” Comey said. “He knows better than that, and knows that the FBI conducts electronic surveillance by going to federal judges and getting warrants based on probable cause.”

The FBI operation to insert an undercover investigator as a staffer into the Trump campaign was “reasonable” to investigate a specific Trump aide, George Papadopoulos, Comey said.

“That was the guy, Papadopoulos, who was the subject of the information we got from the Australians that he had talked to the Russians,” he said.

That situation is now under investigation by the Justice Department inspector general, but Comey is certain he acted appropriately and within regulations.

“Yes. No doubt in my mind. But that doesn’t mean I’m against review of it. That’s totally fine,” Comey said.

Asked by CNN host Anderson Cooper if the inspector general might find anything inappropriate, Comey replied, “I don’t think so. At least not that I know of. But if they do, they do. And they should be transparent about it.”

Comey did admit to regrets about his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email system as secretary of state, as many observers cite Comey’s last-minute announcement in that affair as sealing Clinton’s fate in the 2016 presidential election.

“If I can go back in time, I would find a way not to be involved at all. But if I don’t have that magic wand, I think I’d likely do it the same way. Here was my problem: I and the FBI needed the American people to trust that this wasn’t a political fix job, that this was done in a credible, fair, independent way. Secretary Clinton had engaged in conduct that was way beyond what the normal carelessness was. So how do we explain to the American people that it’s not the ordinary stuff, but it doesn’t rise to the level that you would be locked up for it? So I have to characterize the behavior in some way, not to attack her, but so that the American people understand this is the basis for their judgment,” Comey said. “It’s not criminal, but it’s not the ordinary stuff. I probably should have said ‘really sloppy’ or something, but I had to characterize it. The goal was to offer transparency to foster trust. I actually think you’ve seen it now.

“We all realize the importance of it now with the Mueller Report. The Mueller Report contains far more detail about individuals who are not charged than we ever even considered offering in the Clinton case, but it’s important for all of us to understand the basis of the decisions being made,” he added.

Accident[edit]

Flight 1492 took off from Sheremetyevo International Airport for Murmansk Airport on 5 May 2019 at 18:02 local time (15:02 UTC). The aircraft was struck by lightning while climbing through 6,900 ft (2,100 m). The strike caused some of the aircraft’s electronic equipment to malfunction, including the autopilot and radio, and the flight crew were unable to maintain two-way communication with air traffic control. At the time, cumulonimbus clouds were observed in the vicinity of the airport with a base of 6,000 ft (1,800 m).[3]

The aircraft stopped its climb at flight level 100 (approx. 10,000 ft or 3,000 m above sea level), circled north-east of the airport and inititated an approach for runway 24L.[4] The transponder code was changed to 7600 (to indicate radio failure) at 15:11 UTC and subsequently to 7700 (emergency) at 15:25 UTC, while Flight 1492 was on final approach.[5] The aircraft bounced on landing, and on the third and final touchdown, the landing gear collapsed and a fire erupted, which quickly engulfed the wings, rear fuselage and empennage. The aircraft slid down the runway, veered to the left and came to a standstill on the grass between two adjoining taxiways, about 27 minutes after take-off.
