Honestly, that's what that billionaire Steyer should do with his cash. Pay for that to be aired in prime time.

Although tbh Putin's Revenge came out like two years ago on PBS (it's amazing) & I feel like about ten people saw it.

Tom Steyer could be doing so much more with his money. He could fund a superpac backing David Hoag, he could fund documentary/educational projects like Active Measures, he could back investigative journalists like ProPublica, he could fund commercials interviewing vendors who Trump screwed over (note: ads featuring working class people who lost their jobs due to Bain Capital tested the highest and the most damaging towards Romney in 2012). Instead he decides to rile up the right by engaging on a vanity campaign to call for Trump’s impeachment.

This just makes me wonder what dirt Trump has on Dimon.

The fucking cesspool these people call home. It boggles the mind.

Trump has nothing on Dimon or else he would have leveraged it in real estate finance 10 years ago. Dimon simply knows Trump can screw with a Fortune 500 company via twitter. He also knows bankers aren’t popular with Trump’s base and Trump could hammer him and get street cred with his base for doing so.

Trump said no collusion

There’s some evidence of a military contingent in Qumran. Jesus would have been the spiritual leader, and, I believe, his brother, James, the military leader. There is evidence of a forge at Qumran. They called themselves “The Meek,” which puts a different spin on the Bible’s “The Meek shall inherit the earth.” They definitely would have been fighting the Romans.

Ridley is a perfectionist. His drive to obtain the result he needs -- a shot, performance, a music cue, a scene in a script or the cut of a sequence -- is relentless.

Yep. I ranted about this a few days ago.

Essentially, they will invariably turn against Trump. The good news is that Trump will probably NEVER have ANY hope of winning in 2020. Instead, I am totally convinced that his "campaigning" is a total scam, much like everything he's ever done his whole life.

Republicans will jump to the fore, as they are ALREADY beginning to do, in order to attack a weakened Trump, declaring that they have ALWAYS been in the "Never-Trump" crowd and they are ALREADY co-opting the language of the resistance. They are hoping that Republican voters will be hungry enough for a return to "normalcy" that they won't notice/care about them having enabled Trump the whole time.

Guess what? They won't, because they are total, complete, and willing rubes. I am already starting to hear it amongst my Republican peers. They WILL and ARE absolving themselves of any and all responsibility for this most ludicrous period of time in our history. I now hear this idea that Trump at least has the excuse of having mental problems, but that Hillary would have killed America out of pure malice.

It's already happening.

Guaran-fucking-tee it, if they pull it off, they will even be able to brow-beat the media and Democratic voters for being "too mean" to Trump, who is only a victim of his illness, by gosh!

The GOP will end up trying to bury Trump like a cat will still try and bury a turd it pooped outside of the litter box by pawing at the ground even though they know full WELL there's no goddamn kitty litter there!

::sigh:: Damn cats...

Republicans will HAPPILY pretend that the turd is buried, and will be that guy that asks anyone and everyone else to clean up any mess if they have a problem with it, even though it was their cat, JACOB!

It’s very simple. Republicans are using Trump as a tool to pass all of their most unpopular legislation — tax cuts for the rich and corporations, destroying ACA, rolling back necessary regulations (Wall Street, the environment, etc) — while disenfranchising voters, creating anti-immigrant sentiment and campaigning to a targeted base using fear, lies and manipulation. Once Trump has accomplished all of this, the Republican Party will simply dump him and say “This guy was a Democrat for 30 years, he donated to Hilary, he was friends with Bill, he passed bills negotiated with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.”

This is my biggest fear about trying to brand Donald Trump as a conman. #DONtheCON would allow people on the right to disavow him, but it would also allow the broader Republican Party to say “It’s okay, he tricked us too. Our next candidate will be Mike Pence.”

Trump will resign/step down just after Jan 20, 2019, so that Pence still has two full terms of eligibility left.

Theoretically, Pence could step down, and Trump could name a replacement VP (who would likely be picked by the Heritage Foundation, but would also require confirmation by the House and Senate, so it might happen before the new Congress takes office in January), who would then step in as POTUS.

This is purely speculation. I wouldn’t count on it.

Bob Woodward and this article are making a link between a bad mock interview and John Dowd's quote " an effing liar" and John Dowd quitting.

I am sure many lawyers have had clients perform very badly at a mock interview, took it as a learning tool and kept their client.

John Dowd was the chief proponent of co-operation with the Mueller investigation. Lawyers would do this when their client tells them they are innocent and there should be no evidence of something they didn't do.

I believe Trump told John Dowd he is innocent, and "an effing liar" and quitting is a result of Dowd finding evidence that his client lied to him.

This is correct. It’s also why Jay Sekulow walked back some comments this summer. Trump is clearly lying to his attorneys.

Tying up the phone lines at Trump Hotels, spamming Trump Organization email accounts, protesting outside Trump properties to make guests feel uncomfortable. There are peaceful ways to bring that organization to a grinding halt.

It's not Pence. Pence is the only one who cannot be fired, since he was elected, not appointed. Therefore the New York Times would have no reason to hide his identity.

see more

If Pence wanted to mask his identity, the NYT would have respected that. I think it was Nick Ayers, Pence’s chief of staff. The guy is a GOP hardliner who is 36 years old and an absolute ladder climber (he was already executive director of the Republican Governors Association). He was rumored to be in the running to replace John Kelly as Trump’s CoS until Kelly said he was asked to stay on until 2020. That gives Ayers the right credentials, the right priorities (deregulation and tax cuts were mentioned before the military), serious motive and because of his age he’s thinking about the future of the GOP.

There is also another cabinet secretary with very similar writing patterns to the op-ed...

Those returns are a state secret.

The ProPublica/WNYC Podcast did a great episode on how sketchy the Inauguration was too. They called a bunch of people and it all got routed to this one LLC in Delaware and the woman supposedly in control of the LLC pleaded ignorance.

Gates is a major figure involved in the Inauguration. Methinks we'll hear more and more about that and his involvement.

So this is actually interesting... Tom Barrack, the Trump Inauguration Chairman, was the one who put Manafort in touch with the Trump Campaign. (Source.)

Barrack was questioned by Mueller in Dec. 2017.

I posted this four days ago, but these types of cases further give me confidence that they are side effects of Mueller or the DOJ putting the country’s entire political campaign finance/fundraising apparatus under a microscope. These types of crimes, which are financially quite simple but politically complex (e.g. prosecutors might not have the stones to prosecute) and would be the first to appear and be prosecuted.

I’m wondering if Mueller/SCO or the FBI was investigating foreign donations to GOP campaigns and as part of the scope, GOP House members were put under the microscope and these side crimes came to the surface. Have any FBI/U.S. Attorney offices talked about how they originated these cases?

QAnon is the definition of a preposterous conspiracy theory which was cooked up by trolls on 4chan, but the one fact they continue to bring up is PACER shows a higher than normal number of sealed criminal cases (the documents could be warrants, indictments, etc.) throughout the country.

I’m wondering if those sealed cases are side effects of Mueller’s probe and are tied to several recent charges of financial fraud, corruption and general white collar crime within the GOP.

On the way out Sessions can unilaterally reverse the Justice Department policy prohibiting indictment of a sitting President. It's not a law or anything, just a policy. One with unintended consequences now readily apparent.

Is this true? The original opinion, written in 2000, was created by DOJ's Office of Legal Counsel. I don't believe Sessions can just override that.
