Dems seeking Trump visitor logs call bill ‘MAR-A-LAGO Act’

Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach is the target of Democratic legislation in Washington.

Four Democratic Senators and a Democratic House member introduced legislation today to require President Donald Trump to reveal who visits his weekend White House, the Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach.

The bill requires the president to publish visitor logs for the White House “or any other location where President Trump regularly conducts official business, including various Trump Organization properties frequented by the president.”

 

With Trump frequently visiting Mar-a-Lago on the weekends and conducting official business there, Democrats began pressing a few weeks ago to have visitor logs released. Only today, however, was the bill unveiled with its snazzy acronym for a title: “The Making Access Records Available to Lead American Government Openness (MAR-A-LAGO) Act.”

 

The bill’s Senate sponsors are Democratic Sens. Tom Udall of New Mexico, Tom Carper of Delaware and Sheldon Whitehouse and Jack Reed of Rhode Island. U.S. Rep. Mike Quigley, D-Ill., introduced companion legislation in the House.

Brian Mast makes rousing unity call to GOP colleagues on health care bill

Rep. Brian Mast, R-Palm City, is leaning toward supporting a health care overhaul backed by President Donald Trump.

Freshman U.S. Rep. Brian Mast, R-Palm City, is officially undecided but appears to be leaning toward supporting the health care overhaul scheduled for a vote today after Thursday’s postponement.

 

Mast — who heard from a parade of Obamacare supporters at a marathon town hall meeting  last month and was lobbied by President Donald Trump aboard Air Force One on the bill last week — gave an emotional call for his colleagues to unite behind the bill in closed-door remarks to Republican colleagues Thursday night, according to reports from Washington.

 

According to a Washington Post account, “A key moment inside the session, several lawmakers said, was when Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla., a freshman lawmaker who lost both his legs in 2010 while serving as an Army bomb disposal technician in Afghanistan, rose and called on his colleagues to unite behind the bill in the same way he and his comrades fought in battle.”

 

According to a CNN report circulated by Mast’s office, Mast told reporters “I’ve just never been in a battle that we only had to fire one shot. I’ve never been in a battle with a perfect plan. And even being able to say that — we won every single one of them, because of that unanimity, our ability to win together as a unit.”

 

In the CNN report, Mast described himself as “very likely” to support the bill.

The Palm Beach County Republican Party holds its biggest fundraiser of the year tonight at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club, with 750 or more people paying $300 and up for the Lincoln Day dinner.

Trump has spent five of the last seven weekends at Mar-a-Lago and keynoted last year’s Palm Beach County GOP dinner, but he is not expected to be in town tonight or this weekend.

 

The county GOP has held its last four Lincoln Day dinners at Mar-a-Lago. Trump appeared in 2014 and last year.

 

The party, which estimated it collected more than $300,000 at last year’s dinner, also paid more than $144,000 to rent Mar-a-Lago’s main ballroom for that event, according to a finance report filed with the county elections office.

 

Tickets started at $300 for tonight’s sold-out event, with the party offering sponsorship packages for up to $25,000 for two tables of 10.

The headliners for tonight are Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, sisters from North Carolina better known as “Diamond and Silk” for their viral videos supporting Trump. The pair, who are African-American, appeared at several Trump rallies in 2016.

 

Gov. Rick Scott, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and U.S. Rep. Brian Mast, R-Palm City, are also scheduled to appear, as is James Golden — better known as call screener, producer and engineer “Bo Snerdley” for Palm Beach resident Rush Limbaugh‘s syndicated radio show.

 

 

 

 

In Boca, Roger Stone promotes his Trump book, denies Russia collusion

BOCA RATON — Longtime Donald Trump adviser Roger Stone came through town Tuesday night to sell some books — and push back against allegations he colluded with Russians to influence the 2016 election.

Stone has had contacts with mysterious hacker Guccifer 2.0 (but only “benign,” post-hacking ones, he said) and “backchannel” contact with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. But Stone disputes whether either is linked to Russia and says, even if they were, he didn’t coordinate with them on the release of emails that were damaging to Hillary Clinton.

 

“I am of course no stranger to the world of hardball politics,” said Stone, who has relished his reputation as a practitioner of the dark arts of politics. “But treason — treason is a step too far. That is what the House Democrats have accused me of. If they have any sense of decency, any sense of fair play, I will be afforded the opportunity to answer the charges.”

 

Not only that, Stone insisted that the entire “idea that there was Russian influence to tip this election to Donald Trump is a bald-faced, blatant lie.”

Trump adviser, Florida man Roger Stone denies Russia collusion claims

Roger Stone on CBS This Morning.

Longtime Donald Trump adviser Roger Stone, the Fort Lauderdale resident whose name came up frequently during Monday’s House Intelligence Committee hearing on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, says his communications last year with a hacker linked to Russia were “benign” and didn’t constitute collusion.

 

Rep. Adam Schiff, the committee’s ranking Democrat, mentioned Stone in his opening remarks, suggesting Stone knew in advance about leaks that were damaging to Democrat Hillary Clinton.

 

On Twitter Monday morning, as the hearing was getting underway, Stone tweeted: “It’s only fair that I have a chance to respond 2 any smears or half truths about alleged ‘Collusion with Russians’ from 2day’s Intel Hearing.”

 

Stone made an appearance today on CBS This Morning  to deny any collusion with Russia.

“The inference that my now completely public exchange with a hacker — Gruccifer 2.0, who may or may not be a Russian agent — somehow constitutes collusion is not true based either on the facts, on the actual texts which I have released or on the timing,” Stone said.

 

Stone has known Trump for decades and began encouraging him to run for president in the 1980s. He did not have an official role with Trump’s campaign after August 2015, when he departed after a power struggle with Corey Lewandowski, the Trump campaign manager at the time. But Stone remained an active and visible Trump supporter throughout the 2016 campaign.

 

Stone last August communicated via Twitter with Guccifer 2.0, the entity who claimed credit for the June hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s computer system. That Stone’s communication with Guccifer 2.0 came months after the DNC hack disproves any collusion, Stone has maintained.

 

Stone also said last year that he had “backchannel” communications with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. On Aug. 21, Stone tweeted that Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta would soon face “time in the barrel.” On Oct. 7, Wikileaks began releasing hacked Podesta emails.

 

https://twitter.com/RogerJStoneJr/status/767366825743097856

 

In his CBS interview this morning, Stone said the “time in the barrel” tweet was a reference to Podesta’s business dealings. He said he didn’t have advance knowledge of Wikileaks’ release of Podesta’s emails, but was not surprised by it either.

 

Stone has hired two lawyers and has said he’s eager to testify before Congress to clear his name.

 

“Let me have my day in court,” Stone said.

 

 

White House defends Trump’s frequent golf, Mar-a-Lago visits

President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe exchange a high five at Trump National Golf Club on Feb. 11 in a picture posted on White House social media accounts.

President Donald Trump‘s frequent visits to his weekend White House at Mar-a-Lago are “part of being president” and his many trips to the golf course are different from the ones he criticized former President Barack Obama for taking, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said today.

Sure, Trump International Golf Club is a Jim Fazio-designed, 18-hole course. But it’s also the site of important meetings and phone calls, the White House says.

Trump has visited Palm Beach on five of the first nine weekends of his presidency, wrapping up his latest trip Sunday. Trump appears to have played golf 10 times since taking office — teeing off at a faster rate than Obama, who played an estimated 333 rounds over eight years.

When he wasn’t answering questions about FBI Director James Comey‘s testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, Spicer also fielded queries about golf and the Mar-a-Lago during today’s White House press briefing.

Spicer would not confirm reports of an upcoming Mar-a-Lago summit in April with Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping. Spicer said he wouldn’t have information until after a meeting today between Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Spicer was asked if Trump’s trips to Mar-a-Lago are justified in light of spending cuts proposed in Trump’s budget. The trips could cost federal taxpayers $2 million to $3 million a weekend, according to various estimates. Palm Beach County taxpayers have spent more than $1.5 million since the Nov. 8 election to provide local law enforcement to supplement Secret Service protection of Trump.

“Presidents always travel. Wherever he goes, he carries the apparatus of the White House with us…The president will continue to go and  travel around the country and have meetings to solve the nation’s problems,” Spicer said.

“The president’s very clear that he works seven days a week. This is where he goes to see his family. He brings people down there. This is part of being president,” Spicer said.

Asked how Trump’s golf outings were different from Obama’s, Spicer said: “You saw him utilize this as a opportunity with Prime Minister (Shinzo) Abe to help foster deeper relationships in Southeast Asia, in Asia rather, and have a growing relationship that’s going to help U.S. interests. How you use the game of golf is something that he’s talked about.”

Trump and Japan’s Abe played golf on Feb. 11 at Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, then visited Trump International Golf Club in unincorporated West Palm Beach. It was one of the few times the White House has actually confirmed Trump was playing golf.

When he’s in Palm Beach, Trump often makes the brief trip to Trump International in a golf shirt and hat and spends more than three hours at the club. But that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s playing golf, Spicer said.

“On a couple of occasions he’s actually conducted meetings there, he’s actually had phone calls. So just because he heads there doesn’t mean that that’s what’s happening,” Spicer said.

Asked why few details of those meetings or calls are ever revealed, Spicer said, “It’s the same reason that he can have dinner or lunch with somebody…The president’s entitled to a bit of privacy at some point.”

Is Trump outpacing Obama in presidential golf?

President Donald Trump left Mar-a-Lago this morning for what could be the 10th golf outing of his 8-week presidency.

 

Jim Fazio-designed, 18-hole site of “meetings and phone calls” today, according to the White House.

The president arrived at his Trump International Golf Club in unincorporated West Palm Beach at 8:37 a.m. and left at 12:10 p.m.

 

According to a press pool report, “White House tells us that POTUS will be having ‘meetings and phone calls’ while at the golf club. He may also step out to hit some golf balls, we’re told but not yet confirmed.”

 

Such confirmation is rare. The White House tends to be tight-lipped about whether Trump — ranked the 12th best politician-golfer by Golf Digest last year — is actually playing golf when he spends three or four hours at his Jim Fazio-designed course.

 

The reticence may be due to Trump’s frequent criticism, when he was a private citizen, of former President Barack Obama‘s frequent golf outings.

“I’m going to be working for you. I’m not going to have time to go play golf,” Trump said at one campaign rally in Virginia last August.

 

Obama golfed 333 times as president, according to Mark Knoller of CBS News, a noted scrutinizer of presidential schedules.

 

Obama golfed at a rate of once for every 8.8 days he was in office.

 

Today is the 59th day of Trump’s presidency. The Palm Beach Post’s best estimate is that Trump has played golf nine times through Saturday. If he played today and it is indeed his 10th golf outing, that’s a rate of once every 5.9 days.

Here’s a rundown of previous occasions where President Trump appeared to be playing golf:

Trump and Abe then visited Trump International and, according to a New York Times report, played another nine holes.

Feb. 12 – Arrived at Trump International at 8:31 a.m., left at 1:49 p.m., appeared to be wearing a golf shirt in the limo ride back to Mar-a-Lago.

Feb. 18 – Arrived at Trump International at 8:51 a.m., left at 1:16 p.m. Asked the next day if Trump played golf during the 4½-hour visit to the golf club, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said: “I do believe he played a couple of holes.”

After the McIlroy news, Sanders said the president “intended to play a few holes and decided to play longer. He also had a full day of meetings, calls and interviews for the new NSA (national security adviser)…”

• March 4 — After unleashing a series of early morning tweets accusing Obama of wiretapping him, the president arrived at Trump International at 9:26 a.m. and left at 1:05 p.m. wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat and golf shirt. The White House said the president was conducting meetings, taking phone calls and that he “might hit a few balls.”

Golf glove on President Donald Trump’s left hand suggests he had more than “meetings and phone calls” at his golf course Saturday.

• March 5 — Arrived at Trump International at 9:02 a.m. and departed at 12:48 a.m. The White House didn’t confirm whether the president played golf during his nearly four hours at the course.

  Saturday — Arrived at Trump International around 10 a.m. and left at 2:44 p.m. The White House said Trump had “meetings and phone calls” at the club and wouldn’t say whether he was golfing. Trump friend Christopher Ruddy later tweeted a picture of the president in the clubhouse in golf attire, including a golfing glove on his left hand.

Vice President Pence at Coral Springs church this morning for service, ‘interview’

UPDATE: Vice President Mike Pence spoke at this morning’s service at the Church by the Glades in Coral Springs.

Pence, who on Saturday visited Jacksonville to discuss jobs with Gov. Rick Scott and then Palm Beach for a speech at The Breakers, held an informal conversation onstage for about 20 minutes during the church’s service with the Rev. David Hughes.

Pence then joined other parishioners in the pews as Hughes delivered his sermon.

“Blessed to have the opportunity to worship with the friendly faces at @cbglades. Thank you for the warm welcome,” Pence tweeted after the service.

EARLIER STORY: Vice President Mike Pence will visit a South Florida church this morning, where he will attend the service and be interviewed by the church’s pastor about his faith, according to a post Saturday on the Church by the Glades’ Facebook page.

The church, which sits on the northeast corner of the intersection of the Sawgrass Expressway and West Atlantic Boulevard in Coral Springs, is cautioning guests to arrive more than an hour early for the 10 a.m. service.

“Our intent is for this NOT to be a political or partisan event, but rather an opportunity to hear how a sitting Vice President integrates his personal faith with his very public calling,” the church said in the post.

In a later post, the church’s pastor, the Rev. David Hughes, defended the decision to host Pence and have him speak at the service. That post — which is accompanied by a photo of Hughes standing on a stage with a donkey and an elephant while Hughes holds a sign that says “GOD is NOT a REPUBLICAN or DEMOCRAT” — begins with Hughes saying the church is open to all people, including “donkey people” and “elephant people,” and the church’s Sunday morning service “is NOT about political agendas but HONOR.”

“When the office of the sitting Vice President of the United States ASKED US if he would be welcome to worship with us, of course the honoring response is ‘yes,’ ” Hughes wrote.

He said he would have done the same for Vice President Joe Biden, President Barack Obama or first lady Michelle Obama.

“And, VP Pence’s office communicated his willingness to share his testimony…my thought was, if the 2nd most powerful man if the free world, regardless of party, wants to come and share with my church how he fell in love with Jesus, I’m in,” Hughes continued. “Of course I respect your right to disagree with a choice I prayerfully made. Just do so with respect.”

After the service, Pence is scheduled to fly out of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport for his return trip to Washington, D.C., aboard Air Force Two.

On Saturday night, Pence spoke at a Club for Growth gathering at The Breakers in Palm Beach. After his speech, he made his first visit to President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club since the pair took office in January. Trump invited Pence to come by for dessert after the president ate dinner with first lady Melania Trump, Marvel Entertainment CEO Ike Perlmutter, Laura Perlmutter and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.

Dem congressman: Trump delivers ‘the whole Moscow narrative’

WEST PALM BEACH — Two former Obama administration officials have said they have seen no evidence that Donald Trump or his associates cooperated with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election, but the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said today it’s “premature” to rule out collusion.

 

“I’m limited in what I can discuss that’s the subject of an investigation. I don’t think people can make a categorical statement like that,” said U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., in an interview with The Palm Beach Post after speaking at a fundraiser for the Palm Beach County Democratic Party.

 

County Democratic Chairwoman Terrie Rizzo said the event at Bowery Live restaurant raised between $15,000 and $20,000.

 

In his remarks to more than 100 attendees, Schiff said President Trump has played into Russian efforts to make Western democracies look corrupt and indistinguishable from authoritarian regimes.

 

Schiff pointed to the Trump interview with Bill O’Reilly of Fox News in which O’Reilly described Russian President Vladimir Putin as a “killer.” Trump responded: ““There are a lot of killers. We’ve got a lot of killers. What, do you think our country is so innocent?”

 

Schiff also noted Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that he was wiretapped by former President Barack Obama — a claim Schiff called “nonsense.”

 

Russian leaders, said Schiff “could not have devised, if they brought their best scientists together, a president of the United States who would play more into the Russian story…You couldn’t have written a better line in Moscow. That’s the whole Moscow narrative.”

 

Schiff’s committee is investigating Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election. Former Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told NBC’s Meet The Press this month that Russia sought to intervene in the 2016 election to help Trump defeat Hillary Clinton. But Clapper said that when he left office on Jan. 20, there was no evidence Trump or his associates had colluded with the Russians.

 

“This could have unfolded or become available in the time since I left the government. But at the time, we had no evidence of such collusion,” Clapper said in a Feb. 5 interview.

 

NBC News also reported this week that former Acting CIA Director Michael Morell — who once called Trump an “unwitting agent” of Russia — said that he had seen no evidence of cooperation between Trump and Russia.

 

“On the question of the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians here, there is smoke, but there is no fire, at all,” Morell said at an event sponsored by the Cipher Brief, an intelligence web site.

“There’s no little campfire, there’s no little candle, there’s no spark. And there’s a lot of people looking for it.”

 

Morell was acting CIA director briefly in 2011 and again for about four months in 2012 and 2013. He was considered a potential CIA director if Clinton had won in November.

 

Asked about Clapper’s and Morell’s statements, Schiff said: “I think it is well premature to be drawing any kind of categorical conclusion like that.”

 

Asked if that meant Clapper and Morell were speaking prematurely, Schiff said: “I was surprised to see Director Clapper say that. I haven’t seen what Director Morell has said but Director Morell left the agency quite some time ago. But I don’t think that anyone can say that categorically.”

 

 

 

 

Presidential golf tracker: Obama 333, Trump 9(?)

President Donald Trump, who’s spending the weekend at his tropical White House in Palm Beach, made the brief trip this morning from Mar-a-Lago to his Trump International Golf Club in unincorporated West Palm Beach.

Jim Fazio-designed, 18-hole site of “meetings and phone calls” today, according to the White House.

The White House hasn’t revealed whether Trump — ranked the 12th best politician-golfer by Golf Digest last year — is playing today on his Jim Fazio-designed course.

“We’ve been told he will be having meetings and phone calls before returning to Mar-a-Lago…expect to be holding for a few hours,” said a press pool report this morning.

If Trump is playing, it will apparently be his ninth golf outing as president. The figure is not certain because the White House rarely confirms when Trump is golfing. That’s probably out of sensitivity to Trump’s frequent criticism, when he was a private citizen, of former President Barack Obama‘s golf habits.

Obama golfed 333 times as president, according to Mark Knoller of CBS News, who is considered the foremost authority on presidential scheduling.

Obama golfed at a rate of once for every 8.8 days he was in office. Today is the 58th day of Trump’s presidency. If it is indeed his ninth golf outing, that’s a rate of once every 6.4 days.

“I’m going to be working for you. I’m not going to have time to go play golf,” Trump said at one campaign rally in Virginia last August.
