According to various media reports, Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office announced this morning that former national security advisor Michael Flynn and early political advocate for then-candidate Donald Trump will plead guilty during a 10:30 a.m. court appearance for "willfully and knowingly [making] false, fictitious and fraudulent statements and representations" to the FBI regarding his conversations with Sergey Kislyak, Russia's former ambassador to the United States.
They’re all sorts of people who believe the paddy wagons will be pulling up at any moment to collect Jared and Ivanka while they dine on Beef Wellington and swill Château Lafite Rothschild. Child Services will be on the scene, seconds later, to swoop the kids to Grandpa’s house for safekeeping. These thinkers should enjoy their fantasies, but anyone who entertains the thought that this is how it’ll go down is seriously deluded.
Donald Trump is heading back to the White House from Asia after a trip highlighted by the memorable line, delivered to CEOs, that “there’s no place like home.” His last leg has been The Philippines and his meeting with its President, Rodrigo “Rody” Duarte.
"All I can tell you is this, there was no collusion, there was no nothing," Donald Trump said, this time on his way to Asia. The use of a double negative, normally, is read as an affirmation, but it doesn’t matter much what Trump says about Russia. No one believes him, anymore, not even Republicans.
As expected the Donald J. Trump troupe, including the President himself, have been on record, particularly on twitter. The Russia investigation now headed by former FBI Director Mueller is over. The Indictments have been filed and presented and everybody can relax and go home.
As per Trump’s tweetsters, the indictment of Paul Manfort and Rick Gates
As the White House waits to see which, and how many of its present or former, employees made Robert Mueller’s indictment roll, consider Mueller’s end game. It isn’t Trump, per se, though many would hope otherwise. It’s Russia. The FBI, which Mueller once headed, has always been at the forefront of combatting communism in America.
Hurricanes are wreaking havoc. The West is ablaze. Iceland is melting. Nature is in an uproar and Rick Perry still doesn’t believe in climate change. And, then, there’s Kim Jong Un threatening WWIII. In the meantime, in Washington, Donald Trump is making financial deals with Democrats as President Gen. John Kelly runs the White House like a Marine battalion. Through it all, Special Counsel Robert Mueller plods along, trudging through the muddy night like Diogenes seeking just one honest man.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is no fool. He’s aware of the rumors that President Donald Trump may try to fire him, or pardon those alleged to have violated federal law during, or before, the 2016 election. Should a pardon happen, in one scenario, Mueller’s work product is likely to be trucked to the Department of Justice, sealed, and given a disclosure date of fifty years from now. To insure this doesn’t happen, Mueller is said to be sharing his evidence with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
Some believe it's all a 3 ring circus. Others prefer using the simple word, "Chaos".
Regardless, welcome to Trump Weekend special, August 26, 2017 Edition.
Regardless what you might call it, it's never boring. Hardly a moment goes by without controversial tweet or insult.
