Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said President Donald Trump is a “criminal” who should be impeached. Waters said, “Well, I hate to say it but it’s like I’m going to say it, I told you so. Remember I started out talking about this president even before the inauguration. I talked about him being a despicable character. I talked about him not being worthy of the presidency United States of America.” She continued, “I said it’s not about wanting to undermine our democracy, it was about lifting those sanctions. I believe that the agreement of Manafort and Putin, coming to the campaign to begin with was to do everything they could do so that he could get this president elected so he could be the president that was going to lift these sanctions so they could all make money. I continue to say you follow the money and you’ll watch all of these thieves. This president has brought a criminal enterprise i...

Sunday on ABC “This Week,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said it would be a “terrible mistake” for President Donald Trump to pardon his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort. Rubio said, “I think it would be a terrible mistake if he did that. I do.” He continued, “Pardons should be used judiciously. They’re used for cases of extraordinary circumstances, and I just haven’t heard that the White House is thinking about doing it. I know he hasn’t ruled it out, but I haven’t heard anyone say, we’re thinking about doing it.” He added, “I don’t believe that any pardons should be used with a relation to these particular cases, frankly. Not only does it not pass the smell test, I think it undermines the reason that we have presidential pardons in the first place.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

We now know that prosecutors are proving Russian efforts at leverage in the Trump campaign and in the U.S. elections. This article originally appeared on DC Report.Throw all the prosecutorial sentencing reports together that emerged yesterday about Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort, stir gently, and what do we have? The commentary was so quick to get to the details, that it is useful to pull back and see the whole picture:These are two bad guys who committed crimes, small and large, and they will get real jail time. Cohen will get a bit of relief in his sentence for cooperating partially, but not a magic wand dismissal of prison time. Manafort is facing up to 15 years for crimes so far—after he blew his chances for leniency by lying to the special counsel’s office to whom he had promised cooperation.Trump committed felonies for hush-money payoffs to women for sex in violation of campaign finance laws, according to the U.S. government.

Donald Trump appeared to back the yellow vest protesters in a provocative message to Emmanuel Macron, the French president, claiming that the Paris climate change agreement had triggered the unrest. The US president also claimed protesters were chanting his name on the streets of the French capital, as his rift with Mr Macron continued to deepen. As demonstrators were clashing with police in Paris and protests were being held across France on Saturday, Mr Trump said: "The Paris Agreement isn’t working out so well for Paris. Protests and riots all over France. People do not want to pay large sums of money, much to third world countries (that are questionably run), in order to maybe protect the environment. Chanting 'We Want Trump!' Love France." Sunday Telegraph reporters, placed across the city, heard no such chants. He later tweeted that the protests were "very sad" and reiterated his call for Mr Macron to pull out of the Paris climate change deal, and...
