" The buzzwords in the Mueller investigation today, one year anniversary of the start of the investigation is witch hunt" and "can't indict a sitting president".
Whether it is a witch hunt of not will be better determined once the investigaton runs its course. Whether a President can be indicted while serving might be an issue that could ultimately be decided by the US Supreme Court.
However, overlaying both of those questions is another very important issue being discussed on cable TV and in the news recently, namely--what could be the effect should President Donald Trump decide to pardon others being targeted by the federal government? Believe it or not, an ancillary issue is--what happens if he pardons himslf?
On Friday there was more good economic news as the jobs report showed the unemployment rate dropped to 3.9%, the lowest since 2000. For African Americans and Hispanics, the unemployment rate is now the lowest ever recorded. In April, 164,000 nonfarm jobs were added to payrolls surpassing a 135,000 increase in employment in March. Among the sectors to perform well in April were construction which added 17,000 new jobs and manufacturing employment which surged by 24,000 jobs.
So our President is a mafia boss, an unethical liar and “morally unfit” to be leading the country. At least that’s the opinion of former FBI chief James Comey. In his recent interviews, Comey also has a problem with Donald Trump’s orange skin, his ties that are too long, and even the size of his hands. Really important stuff from the nation’s former top cop.
Donald Trump today has told the world that he did not do what he said he had done
This morning, in a tweet, slamming James Comey, Trump said:
Slippery James Comey, the worst FBI Director in history, was not fired because of the phony Russia investigation where, by the way, there was NO COLLUSION (except by the Dems)!
It’s time to calm down.
The feds engaged in an extraordinary step in getting a warrant to obtain important records belonging to Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s attorney. The reason presented in the media so far is there claim that the documents are related to a potential crime associated with the Stormy Daniels case.
Thank God we don’t have to talk about Stormy Daniels this week, and how her lawyer bushwhacked the president’s posse. There’s something new for a change. It’s called semantics, as in the difference between “subject” and “target.” Donald Trump, the special counsel informs, is the subject of an investigation, but not its target. It’s a wonderful revelation because it has something for everyone.
Another change in Trumpland.
As per Axios:
President Trump's personal lawyer John Dowd has resigned as the head of the president's legal team for Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, per the NYT.
Thank goodness for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. If not for their continuing mistakes and unpopularity, it would have been a tough week for President Trump and the Republican Party.
Today, we learn that the Robert Mueller forces are apparently sending his troops up to, if not, beyond the Trump red line.
Despite threats of shutting down the special counsel operation, Mueller is on the march as he is reported to have issued subpoenas to the Trump Organization. So goes a real investigation, not the cowardly corrupt activity we saw led by the notoriously deceptive, Devin Nunes.
Waiting for Paul Manafort to flip is like waiting for Godot. He’s never going to show up to plead, no matter how many eye-witnesses there are to his alleged financial shenanigans, frauds, and international hanky-panky. If Special Counsel Robert Mueller wants the inside story on the purported criminality of the ex-chair of the Trump campaign he ought to call Russian metals oligarch Oleg Deripaska who’d have a better story to tell, anyway.
