You'all just do not know what the world has in Donald J. Trump - he is a mystery, a child of wonder, a deep man, too much for you plebs to understand. He should be President for Life..


And now you think he should get Life? You went to the same Law school as Michael Cohen, didn't you.

Donald Trump is Establishment America.
How can you call massive tax cuts to this group as "taking them on" ?

Your brain is warped with hate.

tippy top! The orange shitgibbon is NOT going to make the same mistake as previous administrations and WILL ensure that N. Korea becomes nuclear free. He's going to discuss with Japan and when he has his meeting with rocket man, well, unless it's going to be successful, he won't have the meeting. If he's at the meeting and it's not going well, he'll respectively leave it and continue what he's doing or whatever it is he'll continue but something will happen.

Clear?

He says this, "My advice on Mueller has been this: He should be allowed to do his job. He’s entitled to do his job.” so what does he mean by negotiating an end to the investigation?

I have just finished binge listening to a Slate podcast called Slow Burn, covering Watergate up to Nixon's resignation and was struck by the multiple similarities in the language being used by Nixon supporters right up till the smoking gun tape was produced, even as the signs of malfeasance by the administration were becoming clearer and clearer.

It is an interesting series, and a useful resource for those of us too young to remember Watergate (or those so old they have forgotten it).

Martha was an interesting character.

It seems a common ailment in supporters of Republican presidents being investigated by special counsels.

Presidents being investigated by special counsels full stop, very similar tactics also used during Monicagate, that vast right wing conspiracy that almost blew the top off the Clinton administration.

My brother was studying political science Canterbury University at the time and we used to devour all and every information we could get on Watergate, so listening to the podcast brought back many memories but also gave some new information and insights.

Most people on here who support what Trump is doing, or attempting to do, in terms of following a right-of-centre agenda are careful to express that they are not fully pro-Trump in case they look like gullible idiots.

Some, however, are not so careful.

Shut. The gate.

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/04/ ... ase-537491

Quote:
A federal judge raised doubts Thursday about the scope of the order used to appoint special counsel Robert Mueller to probe alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

During a two-and-a-half hour hearing in one of Mueller’s criminal cases against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson questioned whether Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s directive appointing Mueller granted him more authority than Justice Department regulations appear to permit.


Early days. May not impact the Manafort indictment. We'll see.

McCarthy has the bit between his teeth on Hannity's outing in court.

https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/04/ ... standards/

Quote:
The flaw in Balin’s argument is patent. It is true that, if the public has a legal right to know a piece of information, the fact that the information is likely to embarrass someone is not sufficient cause to suppress it. But the public has no right to know the names of people who are relevant to an investigation – even if they are suspected of wrongdoing. Furthermore, even when the government arrests someone or formally accuses someone of a crime in an indictment, the names of uncharged persons are not disclosed. (That is why you see such references as “Cooperating Witness No. 1,” “Unindicted Co-conspirator No. 3,” or “Corporation X” in charging documents.)

Though they apparently chose not to remind Judge Wood of this longstanding policy, government lawyers are well aware of it. The United States Attorneys Manual admonishes that “in all public filings and proceedings, federal prosecutors should remain sensitive to the privacy and reputation interests of uncharged third-parties.” Unless a person has been formally charged with a crime, not only should the government avoid publicly naming the person; federal prosecutors are further schooled to avoid even an “unnecessarily-specific description.” In other words, while calling Hannity “Client No. 3” would have been proper, even referring to him as “S.H.” would have transgressed the policy. There is no justification for publicizing his full name.


Seems to be some sloppiness emerging in the zeal to prosecute Trumpists. Could come back to bite.
