Can We (Please) Learn From The Past As We Go Into The Future?

 

 

Intro.

This will be in two parts.

The first part largely links and headlines, with (maybe) the occasional excerpt or comment. It will remind us of what we’ve already come through.

The second part will be my comments, and predictions of what to expect in the future. It will be in two-parts: 1) IF we LISTEN and do what is RIGHT, 2) IF we do anything but that.

Part One.

‘These are things we’ve never seen before’: The Russia investigation is moving into uncharted territory

Part 2: A

First of all the term and charge of “collusion” is BOTH real and accurate as it relates to the Trump-Putin relations, AND it is too soft a term for what happened.

Here is the Merriam Webster Dictionary definition of collusion:

Definition of collusion

secret agreement or cooperation especially for an illegal or deceitful purpose 

  • acting in collusion with the enemy

WHAT REALLY HAPPENED?
AND WHAT IT SHOULD BE CALLED?

A FOREIGN power who is a long standing ADVERSARY was, and IS still, in intimate contact with every single person on DT’s team, including DT. Some had ties going back DECADES, including DT. Using this relationship, bribery ($500,000,000,000), blackmail, and threats the FOREIGN power was able in many ways meddle with, and rig the election FOR Trump.

When THAT happens it is called TREASON.

WHY haven’t impeachment proceedings, OR Amendment 25/Mentally unfit proceedings began IN Congress? There IS bountiful evidence and reason to.

MY OBSERVATION:

BOTH the DNC and RNC files were hacked by Russia.
Russia, so far, as ONLY released the DNC portion.
Based on this, and the absolute NOTHING from Congress I surmise that the RNC files are as DAMNING as the DNC files are.

Putin is blackmailing our entire government, using Trump as an all-too-willing accomplice to get what he (Putin) and Russia want.

And IF DT gets a wild hair and quits complying??

Then the RNC files will be released.

=====================

Part 2: B

WHAT ARE OUR REASONABLE EXPECTATIONS GOING FORWARD?

IF we listen and learn from this we WILL post haste return immediately and completely TO Constitutional governance.

I do NOT see that happening, though it is  a slim possibility.

What I DO see is the alternative: further, quickened, corruption, and decay, and the FINAL DEMISE of America as she once was.

I could be wrong.

I hope I am.

Jesus did NOT say this about:
love, mercy, grace, or compassion.
CHRIST SAID THIS ABOUT TRUTH.

We are told to speak THE TRUTH in love,

UNDENIABLE FACTS ABOUT TRUTH:

  1. TRUTH IS ALWAYS TRUTH– EVEN IF NO ONE BELIEVES IT. ONE’S LACK OF BELIEF THAT FIRE IS HOT, WATER IS WET, AND THAT GRAVITY WORKS ON EVERYONE THE SAME EVERYWHERE DOES NOT CHANGE THE TRUTH.
  2. TRUTH IS ALWAYS TRUTH FOR ALL PEOPLE, OF ALL ERAS, EVERYWHERE AT ALL TIMESTRUTH IS BOTH ABSOLUTE AND UNIVERSAL.

PART 2.

MY TAKE ON THIS?

Tom is responding to an article that reports a feud between two Conservatives, both are #AntiTrump, but one, Charles C. W. Cooke thinks Jennifer Rubin takes her #AntiTrump too far in a nit-picky way. I will NOT delve into that at all, what I will address is whether Conservatism can survive Trump.

The Answer?

Yes and No.

FIRST, the yes.

Conservatism survived Andrew Jackson, Woodrow Wilson, Herbert Hoover, FDR, Truman. JFK, LBJ, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Clinton, and Obama. IT can definitely and EASILY survive DT and his gaggle of gutless wonders and Commie sleaze-balls.

THEN, the no.

I think we sorely LACK two things to survive.

The will to do THE RIGHT THING(S).

Time.

I don’t see ANYONE in leadership with THE WILL to DO THE RIGHT THING.
I see and hear a cadre of spineless, moral-less, short-sighted, and selfish power-brokers who ONLY care about “what’s-in-it-for-me”.

And I think we’ve fallen OFF the cliff of Constitutionalism, Liberty, and Morality, and that we as a NATION are about to crash-n-burn and join the ash heap of history…I see the ENTIRE WORLD headed for THE END, (Ezekiel chpts. 37-39; Zechariah chpt. 14; I Timothy 4:1-3; II Timothy 3:1-8, 12, 13; II Thessalonians 2:2-13; and Revelation chpts. 6-21).

No one with THE WILL TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT.

NOT ENOUGH TIME TO CORRECT IT ALL.

That still does NOT change, NOR weaken The Truth.

“Wha-????”, you ask, “How’s that?”

Because EVEN IF everyone including me BELIEVED, SAID, DID AND LIVED THE WRONG WAY….AND WE ALL RAN OUT TIME…The Truth IS STILL The Truth. And The Truth we’d be facing then is Almighty God and what did WE do with, and about HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST…

...So, to wrap this up we have seen:

  1. Conservatism is under attack. DUH.
  2. Conservatism can withstand ANY attack given the WILL to fight and TIME to win.
  3. BUT DT is working 24/7/365 to ensure that we do NOT survive…

Having said ALL that I still am happy, confident, peaceful, no stress, no worries.

How, you ask?

Because MY faith and MY hope are NOT of THIS world, NOR in any mere man.

But like the old hymn of the church:

MY HOPE IS BUILT ON NOTHING LESS

THAN JESUS BLOOD AND RIGHTEOUSNESS

I DARE NOT TRUST THE SWEETEST FRAME

BUT WHOLLY LEAN ON JESUS’ NAME!

ON CHRIST THE ROCK I STAND

ALL OTHER GROUND IS SINKING SAND-

NOW, FOR PART 3…

TEN THINGS YOU SHOULD ACTUALLY KNOW ABOUT THE ON-GOING FBI INVESTIGATION OF DT AND HIS CADRE OF COMMIES

FROM BENJAMIN WITTES, TWITTER PATRIOT:

Ten things you actually should know about FBI General Counsel James Baker, removed this week by Chris Wray—all of them actually true.

1) He was the counsel for intelligence policy at the Justice Department—which was the office that ran FISA warrants before NSD—in the period just after 9/11.

2) This was an incredibly grueling and tremendously important role that put him at the center of the process of bringing the warrantless wiretapping program under the FISA. It was also a role pivotal in bringing down the Wall between intelligence and law enforcement.

[MY NOTE: A wall placed there by Bill Clinton when he, a Liberal/Democrat, was President.]

3) He is not, whatever the fever swamp may be concocting about him, a partisan. I have known him for a long time. I have no idea what his politics are except some vague sense that they are moderate of some variety. He has worked comfortably in administrations of both parties.

4) He is one of the most deeply respected national security law practitioners out there. The very best of the very best think of him as a peer.

5) He is not a leaker. The idea is just silly to anyone who knows him.

6) He has been a mentor to lot of extremely fine people. A while back, he emailed me to ask me if—as a favor to him—I would meet with a protege of his, then in law school, to help think through how to run a journal. I agreed. is now managing editor of .

7) is not alone. A great many young people have benefited from his teaching at —even while he was in government—over the years. They are devoted to him. That should tell you more than what anonymous House Republicans tell .

8) Yes, he is part of a close-knit circle of people who are close to Jim Comey. That group—from Chuck Rosenberg to Dan Richman to Jim [Baker] to others—are all major figures in their own rights. It says a lot about Comey that he attracts these people—and that they stay with him years.

9) Chris Wray has reassigned him to advise on “strategic projects”—which is almost surely code for warehousing and marginalizing him within the context of civil service rules that protect him.

10) Jim Baker is an altogether kind and decent human being. My strategic project advice for Wray is to stop buying yourself time with Trump and Congressional Republicans at the expense of such people.

The Russians hacked the DNC and released those emails. They also hacked the RNC but we haven’t seen ANY of those. That may be what’s compromising the GOP leaders—Trump has dirt on them that they’ll say ANYTHING to keep hidden.

Reince Priebus denied the RNC had been hacked. But the IC reported it had indeed been hacked

Then Benjamin Wittes recommends the following article:

This is an excellent piece from that gets a lot of things right. Amazing what happens if you talk to actual FBI folks and people like David Kris about what’s going on.

NOW FOR A TRUTHFUL LOOK AT NEWS AND CURRENT EVENTS…

FROM A TOM NICHOLS, TWITTER PATRIOT:

I would add one more note, at least for me personally, on this issue of Never Trump people changing their positions. /1

SOURCE

Conservatism Can’t Survive Donald Trump Intact

As reflexive support for the president redefines their movement, most conservative commentators have caved to pressure, following along.

I think for some of us, it’s not that we changed our position, it’s that we don’t want this administration trying to do important and complicated things it doesn’t understand. /2

For example, I don’t know whether physically moving the US EMB to Jerusalem is a good idea. I know that it will take skill and focus, and so I’d rather it not be done by an admin that lacks skill and focus. /3

Likewise, tax reform is as dear to my heart as any other conservative. But not *this way*, and certainly not led by a family who stands to gain from it. Does that make me against it? I guess so. For now. /4

So, yeah, POTUS critics are turning away from things we once wanted because they don’t trust *this* WH to do them and not screw them up and lose them forever and make things worse than doing nothing. /5

. and others can speak for themselves, and has every right to call out fellow cons for being inconsistent. That’s healthy. But as Frum said, not healthy to start each day as if we have no memory of the previous day. /6x

ANOTHER PATRIOT FROM TWITTER POSTED:

SETH ABRAMSON

If you have even ONE follower who says there was no Trump-Russia collusion, please share this with them. Signs of Collusion 1-24. Signs of Collusion 25-47.

It’s all there—BLACK AND WHITE—and it’s just 10% of what Mueller has.

EXCERPTS FROM PART 1:
(THREAD) From Russian payments to Trump advisors to failing to register as foreign agents working for Putin allies—from perjury to illegal solicitation of campaign donations from the Kremlin—here’s a non-exhaustive summary of known Trump-Russia ties. Hope you’ll read and share.

#1: In March of 2016, Papadopoulos reveals to Trump—face-to-face—he’s a Kremlin intermediary sent to establish a Trump-Putin backchannel (he says Putin is favorably disposed to Trump’s candidacy). Trump then and there orders Gordon to coordinate a pro-Kremlin GOP platform change.

#2: In June 2016, Don Jr. knowingly attends a meeting with—and set up by—Kremlin agents. He asks the Kremlin for what he has reason to believe is illegally acquired Clinton material. Afterwards, he (allegedly) tells no one. When caught, he lies about every aspect of the meeting.

#3: In April, July and September of 2016 Sessions meets Russian Ambassador Kislyak in settings in which Russian sanctions are discussed. He holds the latter two meetings *after* it’s known Russia is cyber-attacking America. He lies about these contacts under oath before Congress.

#4: Kislyak egregiously violates longstanding diplomatic protocol to attend—as a guest of the Trump campaign—a major Trump foreign policy speech. Having been invited to the speech as a VIP, Kislyak sits in the front row as Trump promises Putin’s Russia “a good deal” on sanctions.

EXCERPTS FROM PART 2.

(THREAD) It turns out 24 paragraphs detailing 24 discrete Trump-Russia ties isn’t enough to encompass how entwined Trump is with Russia, so in this thread—Part 2 in the series—I offer 23 more connections. A link to Part 1 is in the first tweet, below. Hope you’ll read and share.

#1: Below is a link to Part 1 of the series, which itemizes 24 discrete Trump-Russia ties. Remember: the ties detailed here are a fraction of what Special Counsel Mueller knows; we mustn’t pretend the damning evidence we have is *all* the damning evidence. LINK TO PART 1.

#2: Trump NatSec advisor Erik Prince secretly traveled to UAE at the command of the UAE’s Royal Family so he could have a clandestine meeting *on Russia sanctions* with a top Putin ally—the Russian Direct Investment Fund manager. Prince lied to Congress about all aspects of this.

#3: Trump NatSec advisor Flynn secretly worked with Trump pal Thomas Barrack and Iran-Contra criminal Robert “Bud” McFarlane to lobby Trump to drop Russia sanctions—the better to make money off a deal to bring nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia via Russian-built nuclear reactors.

#4: In 2002, Trump tried to rig the Miss Universe pageant—by leaning illegally on judges—to award the title to Miss Russia, whose two boyfriends at the time were a) one of the top real estate developers in Saint Petersburg, a market Trump wanted access to, and b) Vladimir Putin.

#5: In 2003, Trump was saved from bankruptcy by the sudden, miraculous appearance of Russian mobster Felix Sater in his orbit. Sater found Trump new partners and tenants—often, Russians—and they helped make Trump rich again. Trump then perjured himself over whether he knew Sater.

So….what grade do I give DT?
See here:

What grade do you give first year in office?

30%- A (This the IDIOT class).

33%- B (The MORON class).

22%- C (The DUMMY class).

15%- F (The GENIUS class, I gave DT an F–)

My comments were:

I give DT what I give every Lying, Liberal: F–. There is NO HONEST Conservatism in/about DT, ALL LIES & PRETENSE, with massive doses of lewd vulgarity, stupidity, & egomaniacal ranting. A rabid ape on PCP would be better than DT.

===================

So, to wrap this up we have seen:

  1. Conservatism is under attack. DUH.
  2. Conservatism can withstand ANY attack given the WILL to fight and TIME to win.
  3. BUT DT is working 24/7/365 to ensure that we do NOT survive

Having said ALL that I still am happy, confident, peaceful, no stress, no worries.

I write this article because there are many otherwise good, faithful Christians who have an unBiblical, hence, and unhealthy view of love.

They emphasise “We’re known as Christ’s disciples by our love…this is a church of love…we’re a loving church…”

BUT how is anyone to KNOW if love is TRUE apart from a solid grounding IN The Truth of God’s Word. NOT all feigning the “love of God”, even know the love of God, (Matthew 7:6, 13-21). Oftentimes those speaking the most and the loudest about love do so to avoid, and to discourage any Biblical scrutiny. Churches, entire denominations, are rife with sin inside and and out, eaten up with wickedness to the very core using the guise of “the Love of God” as a cloak for their sin, (II Peter 2:1-3; Jude 1:4)

Though most deemphasise Truth, and overly/wrongly emphasise love do so as a cloak for their, and other’s sins, some do so because they sincerely want and expect the best in and for everybody, OR because they do not like confrontation of any kind. BUT the result IS THE SAME: rampant sin and immorality…which IS the death of any family, church, community, and nation.

Recently I had well meaning CHRISTIAN LEADERS tell me that there is NO place for politics in Christianity, and NO place for Christians in politics.

Look around and tell me how that’s working for you.

They, as we all do, want TRUTH, HONESTY, AND INTEGRITY to be vital in:

  1. Our marriage
  2. Our family
  3. Our church
  4. Our pulpit and classrooms
  5. Our business dealings
  6. Our job
  7. Our friendships…
  8. BUT NOT AMONG THE POLITICIANS THAT PASS LAWS WE ALL HAVE TO LIVE BY??!!!

Let me posit this Maxim, this TRUTH:

“What we settle for rules us.”

If we settle for nothing less than The Truth of God and His Word, THEN The Lord Jesus Christ rules us.

Anything and anybody short of the FULL surrender to, embracing of, and living out of The Truth, is settling for slavery. The less truth- the more slavery. The more truth- the more Liberty.

And THIS includes those who rule over us.

IF NOT then we’d need to cut out of our Bibles and get rid of :

JOB
ABRAHAM
ISAAC
JACOB
ESTHER
JOSEPH
MOSES
JOSHUA
ALL THE JUDGES
KING DAVID
KING SOLOMON
NATHAN THE PROPHET
ELIJAH
ELISHA
NEHEMIAH
EZRA
ISAIAH
JOHN THE BAPTIST
AND JESUS

So, with that as the Prologue, let me now posit TRUTH on the state of government and politics as it is currently:

FROM 2 TWITTER PATRIOTS:

If true; this is Fantastic…please read, you won’t be disappointed.

Unless you are MAGA, which don’t bother;

Just keep eating your own boogers.

Settle in, politikids. You’re going to enjoy this… I’ve read the full letter Trump transition team attorneys sent to legislators re: Mueller obtaining their emails. It has a delicious reveal. 1/

SOURCE

As we now know: 1) Mueller obtained ALL of the emails sent to/from Trump transition team accounts 2) The Trump gang only realized this after Mueller’s team seemed to know all about their emails 3) This made them quite… upset.  2/

4) Their lawyers then wrote the letter in the link to congressmen complaining about just how upsetting all of this is. Here’s the classically amusing reveal in the letter… 3/

Earlier this year, Trump appointed the top attorney at the office responsible for providing all the electronics and email accounts the Trump transition team used. That attorney’s name was Richard Beckler. 4/

Now, as background, Beckler was a white collar criminal defense attorney before his appointment. He helped rich criminals beat government convictions for a firm with a name you’ll find familiar. Bracewell & Giuliani. 5/

So, Trump appointed Beckler, and then Backler went and ensured Trump transition team attorneys that he would not allow his org (the GSA) to provide any of their emails to investigators. One problem: Beckler fell ill and ultimately passed away. 6/

So, until Mueller’s crew started asking Trump aides about those emails, they had absolutely no idea Mueller had them because they thought Trump’s guy on the inside was running interference for them. Let that one sink in. 7/

Trump and his flunkies thought their friend at the GSA had locked their emails away *literally* in a vault no one could get to… They thought their bodies were all buried. 8/

As a result, Trump’s people walked into their interviews with Mueller and team with a completely false sense of confidence that he didn’t know what he already knew in spades. They thought he was fishing. He was just reeling fish in. 9/

Can you imagine the freakout that must have occurred in Trumpland when they realized their cleanup guy hadn’t actually done the cleanup after all? Alllllllll of the things they thought they had buried were not only not buried; Mueller had them in writing! 10/

While this is just conjecture, I suspect the entire Trump orbit just realized that Mueller has a trove that entirely hangs them out to dry AND brings them down for obstruction and lying to Mueller to boot. 11/

Trump appointed a Giuliani guy to protect him from Mueller… …and then the guy went and died just as Mueller was coming a’calling. Trump must be losing his freaking mind… …even more panicked: Jared Kushner. Mueller is gonna roast them all. <end>

Note: Trump team knew Beckler had died. They didn’t know he had failed to lock down their electronics and emails – and didn’t know GSA staff had produced them all without telling anyone.

One more note: as the letter in the link lays out, Beckler was incapacitated by August. He was hospitalized when Mueller’s crew came a’knockin’.

=======

LET ME CLOSE WITH THE OBSERVATIONS FROM ONE MORE TWITTER PATRIOT:

Let’s play Alternate Universe.
It’s 2017, and President Hillary Clinton is facing charges that Chelsea met with Russians who offered oppo on Trump. Chelsea didn’t call the FBI; and Clinton nat sec adviser Jake Sullivan lied to the FBI about talking to the Russians. /1

Sullivan is perp-walked into Federal court and pleads to a felony. Chelsea spends hours with congressional investigators and then mugs for the cameras with a cake that looks like Trump. /2

Meanwhile, Hillary, who has shady ties through various organizations to tons of Russian money and mobsters, refuses to release her tax records and refers to “existential” threats to her presidency from the crooked FBI. /3

,In fact, in her first year in office Hillary asks the FBI director to “let it go” on Jake Sullivan, and when he doesn’t, she fires him. Deputy AG Sally Yates appoints an SC, a lifelong Dem. Hillary mulls firing him. /4

Then, at least three other Clinton campaign officials end up indicted. All of them are tied in some way to a hostile foreign power. Robby Mook is confined to his home with an ankle monitor. /5

As the 2018 midterms approach, Hillary publicly mentions how the FCC should crack down on broadcasters who lie, and maybe yank FOX’s license. She also notes her warm relations with Nicholas Maduro and calls him to say hi. /6

I’m sure… totally sure… that stalwarts of the GOP would say: Look, this is a nothingburger, you can’t define “collusion,” it’s just “the coffee boy,” and on and on. /7

Let’s cut the nonsense. The GOP would be in full impeachment mode, even without the completion of the special counsel investigation. This is not a partisan point; it’s a common-sense point. I don’t mind having arguments, but I’d prefer to keep them here on Planet Earth. /8x

I’ve been challenging conservative friends to this thought experiment for months and months. “Yeah, but Hillary is different” is always the backstop, as though whatever HRC did makes all accusations about DJT false.

TWITTER PATRIOT WRITES:

MUELLER THREAD. We should all (obviously) be concerned if Trump fires Mueller. But, in my opinion, we should be even MORE concerned if he fires DAG Rod Rosenstein. Here’s why:

2. The investigation into Russia’s election interference began well before Mueller came on the scene, in June 2016. It is an investigation that existed independent of him. He didn’t “start” it.

3. Likewise, if he leaves, it won’t “end” it. Mueller was appointed mainly to insulate an ongoing investigation from conflicts of interest that arose from Comey’s firing. If he leaves, some of that insulation is gone. BUT:

4. The FBI has a statutory mandate to investigate potential violations of federal law and threats to national security. Just because Mueller leaves doesn’t mean that those cases just get dumped in the trash. They are obligated to continue investigation them to their resolution

5. It’s also useful to think of FBI investigations as fractals. Each case can spawn a new case, depending on what’s uncovered. In other words, if during an investigation of one violation, you uncover another, that’s a new case.

6. So while we talk about the “Russia investigation,” that is really an umbrella for what is likely *many* cases involving both criminal and counterintelligence threads. Those don’t just disappear.

7. Further, some of these — like the indictments and plea deals we’ve seen — are already in the judicial system. And no doubt there are outstanding subpoenas and other investigative leads that are already out. In other words, this train has left the station, big time.

8. The key, however, is that there needs to be a prosecutor at DOJ who is willing to facilitate and approve many parts of the investigation. Right now that’s Mueller. In his absence, who is it? DAG Rod Rosenstein (because AG Sessions would still be recused).

9. Under the Special Counsel regulations, Mueller has been reporting to Rosenstein every 90 days about the status of his investigation. He’s also had to seek approval for an expansion of his mandate, or for any charges he’s brought so far.

10. We can conclude that so far Rosenstein has approved of the progress and requests that have been made — if he hadn’t, he would have had to report this to Congress and explain why. That hasn’t happened. He’s also explicitly stated that he believes Mueller is doing his job.

11. Rosenstein, therefore, has basically seen everything that Mueller has. And he’s on board. Presumably, if he is put “back in charge,” he’d continue to move the investigation forward (if he didn’t, it would raise the question why he had been approving Mueller until now).

12. If Trump fires, Rosenstein, however, he can appoint someone new to be the DAG. Which means he can preemptively choose someone who is going to stonewall the investigation from moving forward. Even a new DAG overseeing Mueller could do this.

13. So, IMO, that’s the bigger threat. Rosenstein, not Mueller, is really the buffer right now between POTUS (and Congress) and a full investigation of all aspects of “the Russia investigation,” incl the counterintelligence part, the various criminal threads, and OoJ. /END

14. P.S. And ppl are right that in general, Trump has to fire Rosenstein to fire Mueller. But part of my point is that he could replace DAG, *not* fire Mueller and still achieve same effect if that DAG is willing to block Mueller’s efforts and “spin” the reasons why to Congress.

SALVO 2.

ANOTHER PATRIOT.

So, to respond to and everyone else about all this. First, I don’t recall publicly defending that he’d never make it to inauguration; if I speculated on that privately, well, okay, bad prediction and I’ll own it. But my guesstimate isn’t the point. /1

The larger problem is that, in classic Twitter fight fashion, the goal post of “evidence” keeps moving every time more evidence shows up. So, what do I mean by evidence? I said it here: 2/

You’d have set up a gallows for less only a few years ago. The weaponization of Wikileaks, the financial intertwining of Trump and the Russians, the meetings with Trump’s people, the RNC platform changes, Manafort – if this isn’t enough, nothing is.

I could go through each of these, but as an example, Mollie asked me about “the weaponization” of Wikileaks. There is no doubt that WL reached out to Trump. No evidence (yet, I grant) that Trump himself responded. /3

But I think there’s enough circumstantial evidence – including the inability of people like Stone and POTUS himself to stop talking about it – that someone on the campaign helped advise someone what to do with those stolen materials. /4

We can argue all day over whether this fits “colluding,” and which cut-out from which camp talked to whom. My point stands: if this were Clinton or anyone else, the hearings and fury would be 24/7. And THAT is only the tip of a giant iceberg. /5

The role of Manafort, the possible quid pro quo in the RNC platform, the fact that Flynn is now a felon – this should have been more than enough. But no. Instead, some texts from a pissed off FBI guy are dispositive that Mueller is on a witch hunt. /6

Meanwhile, we’re treated to nightly freakouts about Fusion GPS, from people acting as if they’ve never heard of oppo. Like this is the first dirty campaign they’ve ever seen, and thus it negates ALL the other evidence that actually *exists*. /7

I have never harped the dossier. I have never said the Russians stole the election. I have never said Trump personally coordinated with the Russians. But these straw zombies keep coming back. So here’s what I *will* say. /8

1. There is clear evidence of contact with the Trump campaign and a hostile foreign power and its active arm in WL. 2. There is a level of contact historically between the Trump Org and Putin that should worry anyone who knows anything about how Russia works. /9

3. There is, imo, a high probability that the Trump Org and its minions have been doing naughty things with Russian money for ages. 4. POTUS, for whatever reason, is clearly scared of Putin and the Kremlin. 5. A lot of people in this WH have been, erm, untruthful about ALL of this. /10

And most important, conservatives defending this WH with “but Hillary” and “uranium” and “Fusion GPS” are being astonishingly hypocritical and should just admit that if this were not their tribe, they’d have burned the WH by now. /11x

Just In: Robert Mueller is Set to Rip Trump’s White House Apart as Early as This Week

robert mueller rip trump white house

According to Bill Palmer at the Palmer Report, this is the week we’ve all been waiting for1. This is when Special Counsel Robert Mueller will begin to “rip Trump’s White House apart” in order to get to Trump. This will be an interesting week to watch Trump’s staff and Trump’s Twitter account and see the reactions as Mueller tears through there.

CNN confirms Robert Mueller is set to interview Trump’s top White House staffers as early as this week, which has to make Trump very nervous, to say the least. They’ve all seen a lot and heard a lot over the past several months, and given the numerous reports coming from sources inside that White House that say Trump doesn’t treat staffers very well, they just might start talking.

SALVO 5.

THE FINAL PATRIOT WITNESS FOR THIS ARTICLE:

If the Trump-Russia investigation is truly a witch hunt, as Trump says, the FBI’s application for a FISA surveillance warrant would prove it. Why won’t his Administration allow Congress to see it? (THREAD) 1/

2/ Among the key allegations made by Trump’s allies is that the infamous DNC-funded opposition research dossier provided the basis for the FISA warrant that reportedly allowed surveillance against former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page and potentially others.

3/ To obtain a FISA warrant on a U.S. person, investigators must submit evidence to a judge that demonstrates a reasonable basis to believe that the intended target of the surveillance is an “agent of a foreign power.”

4/ The FISA application would reveal exactly what evidence the FBI relied on to suspect that people within Trump’s orbit were in cahoots with Russia.

5/ If the dossier was the principal evidence presented in the FISA warrant application, it would vindicate Trump and his allies claims that the Russia investigation was just a political witch hunt.

6/ This is why the FISA warrant application is of such keen interest to Trump’s defenders.

7/ Last week, Rep. Jim Jordan, a Trump ally, grilled FBI Director Chris Wray about the dossier’s role in the FBI’s FISA warrant application, and demanded that he allow Congress access to it. Wray refused, saying it was classified.

8/ Yet, there’s one person who has the unchecked power to declassify anything he likes, including the FBI’s FISA warrant application — Wray’s boss, President Donald Trump. It’s baffling that he refuses to do so.

9/ Trump has also made much hay of the Obama Administration’s “unmasking” of Trump associates whose conversations were picked up in routine surveillance of Russian foreign intelligence targets.

10/ Yet, here again the Trump Administration has resisted Congressional requests for access to the details of which Obama officials requested the unmasking and their basis for doing so.

11/ By ordering that the FISA application that the unmasking details be made public, he could prove that the Russia investigation was really the political witch hunt he claims. So, why doesn’t he do it?

12/ If it’s just the dossier, that the FISA warrant is based on, there’s nothing classified about that. Which suggests that there is more to it.

13/ If it’s really a political witch hunt, Trump could be vindicated tomorrow. Trump has the power to get to the truth of the matter, yet is actively resisting doing so.

14/ The only reasonable explanation for Trump’s resistance is that he knows that it would reveal that the FBI had really good reasons to suspect something shady was going on between Trump’s team and Russia.

15/ This would spoil Trump’s primary line of attack in his campaign to discredit Mueller’s investigation.

16/ As National Reviews’ Andrew McCarthy wrote, “In the unmasking controversy, it seems Trump was more interested in politically exploiting the specter of abusive unmasking than in ordering the disclosure of what actually happened. Is the same thing true of the dossier?”

17/ No one knows the real reason Trump’s administration is stonewalling. If he wanted to release the FISA warrant application, he could.

18/ As McCarthy writes, “If [Trump] persists in that posture, we have to assume he would prefer that we not know what the FBI told the FISA Court.”

19/ BOTTOM LINE: If you believe that the Russia investigation is a political witch hunt, you also have to believe that Trump is sitting on the information that could exonerate him. I don’t buy that. Do you?

20/ I highly recommend the piece on the FISA warrant controversy, which was among my sources for this thread.

THE PRESIDENT COULD ORDER DISCLOSURE IF HE WANTED TO. HE HASN’T. WHY?

Did Trump REALLY Recognise Jerusalem As The Eternal, Rightful Capitol of Israel?

Image result for Trump promises to move U.S. embassy to Jerusalem

TRUMP’S WORDS:

President Trump announced Wednesday the United States is formally recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and is instructing the State Department to begin the process of moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

“I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,” Trump said in his speech.

NOTICE THIS IS FOX NEWS REPORTING, HERE’S THE FOX NEWS HEADLINE-

Why Trump’s promise to move US Embassy to Jerusalem is so controversial

SOURCE

TRUMPS ACTIONS-

BUT before every DT supporter gets too happy about this…here is the rest of the speech and article-

The embassy move is expected to take a minimum of three or four years, U.S. officials said.

But in the meantime, Trump will reportedly sign, and will continue to sign, the 6-month waiver to the Jerusalem Embassy Act. That act essentially allows presidents to sign continuous waivers to stall the relocation of the embassy and will prevent significant cuts to State Department funding.

Read on to find out why the decision is so contentious — and why it hasn’t been accomplished yet.

=========

On the one hand DT “promises” to move the U.S. Embassy and Officially recognise Jerusalem as the “eternal Capitol of Israel”…those are his WORDS…

BUT then with a stroke of his pen DOES what every other President has done and KEEP the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv.

WHY do/say this now?

WHY feign to honor Israel with “an announcement” that your very actions CONTRADICT?

And, again, why NOW?

Both research and current events show DT is feeling the heat from many sides:

  1. Mueller is closing in on him, Putin, and the Russian mob.
  2. Papadopoulos is charged with crimes and cooperating with Mueller.
  3. Flynn flipped and is cooperating with Mueller.
  4. Manafort has been charged by Mueller.
  5. Rick Gates has been charged by Mueller.
  6. Don Jr. and Jared Kushner are being investigated and will be arrested soon.
  7. The sexual assault charges are coming back against DT.
  8. And now ALL of DT’s finances are being scoured.

Sooooo, basic bait-n-switch, smoke-n-mirrors.

DT is feeling all kinds of heat.

He has do at least look like he’s doing something…so, hey, I’l say Jerusalem is the eternal capitol of Israel…and then, well, do NOTHINGEXCEPT keep the U.S. Embassy IN Tel Aviv.

You DT supporters out there, are you getting tired of his lies yet?

==============

Oh, and the timetable of 3-4 YEARS to supposedly DO what DT said is very convenient since he wont be president then…the way things are going now DT is headed to prison either via IMPEACHMENT or 25th Amendment due to being freaking insane!

 

AND DON’T FORGET RICK GATES HAS BEEN INDICTED TOO…

“Where-the-Rubber-Meets-the-Road” Truth About DT’s ties to Putin and Russian Mob

Image result for Michael Flynn

BEFORE we get into Flynn’s spilling the beans to Mueller let’s look at the DT pick of EXXON-MOBIL’S CEO for Secretary of State, where we’ll see that DT and Tillerson BOTH promised Putin that the U.S. sanctions would be DROPPED/ENDED if DT were elected…thereby freeing up $500,000,000,000 in Russian-Exxon OIL. Yes, a HALF A TRILLION DOLLARS IN OIL MONEY for DT-Tillerson-Putin and his Mob!

Did Putin help elect Trump to restore $500 billion Exxon oil deal killed by sanctions

Follow the money: Will Trump repay Putin by ending Russian sanctions and killing the Paris climate deal?

The “Russian hack news … is delegitimizing,” explained former George W. Bush speech writer David Frum in a recent article. The conservative Frum was famous for authoring Bush’s controversial “axis of evil” speech about the danger posed by Iran, Iraq, and North Korea.But it appears our democracy and our children have a new axis to worry about: Putin, Trump, and ExxonMobil, whose CEO Rex Tillerson — an extreme Russophile and long-time director of a US-Russian oil company — is Trump’s puzzling choice for Secretary of State.
I say “puzzling” because the long-serving Exxon employee (from age 23!) has no qualifications to be secretary of state — other than a history negotiating major oil deals with countries like Putin’s Russia, which in any sane world would actually disqualify him or at least force a recusal from all State Department dealings with Russia.But that puzzle disappears if we follow the famous dictum from the Watergate era for uncovering a tangled web of covert campaign acts: “Follow the money.” And perhaps another puzzle is also solved: Why did Putin take such a “fearful risk,” as Frum put it, to “mount a clandestine espionage and disinformation campaign on behalf” of Trump and against Clinton, “when Putin had every reason to expect that he probably would end up facing a President Clinton,” and a tremendous backlash.You can certainly make a plausible case, as U.S. intelligence agencies do in their bombshell new report, that Putin had plenty of motivation to interfere. He wanted to undermine the legitimacy of U.S. elections and a Clinton Presidency, he blamed Secretary Clinton for “inciting mass protests against his regime,” and he was angry with the U.S. for the Panama Papers leaks. Those leaks showed a $2 billion trail of offshore accounts and deals that traced back to Putin and his cabal of kleptocrats, who, among other things, were getting rich “trading shares in Rosneft,” Russia’s state-owned (i.e. Putin run) oil monopoly.

But a half trillion dollars to line their pockets and prop up the Russian economy offers a much more tangible motivation for team Putin to get Trump elected. And it was Tillerson who had made the $500 billion oil deal with Putin that got blocked by sanctions.

Blocking the deal did not just “put Exxon at risk,” as the Wall Street Journal reported in 2014. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow explained last month the biggest oil deal in history was “expected to change the historical trajectory of Russia.”…

===

Yep.

DT and Tillerson had their sites on their “share” of half a TRILLION DOLLARS…as soon as the sanctions against Putin, Russia, and the Russian Mob were lifted!

Now to the more recent revelation by Michael Flynn to Mueller:

Flynn texted partners about nuclear plan during inauguration, whistleblower says

House Democrats say the whistleblower approached them in June, but Mueller asked them to not to make the information public until now.

 SOURCE

Congressional Democrats said Wednesday they have evidence from a confidential whistleblower that within minutes of President Donald Trump’s inauguration, then-national security adviser Michael Flynn sent assurances to former business partners that a plan to build nuclear reactors across the Middle East was “good to go.”

Democrats on the House Oversight Committee said in a letter dated Wednesday that the whistleblower reported attending an Inauguration Day event with Flynn’s former business associate Alex Copson, the managing partner of ACU Strategic Partners.

The whistleblower said Copson gushed that Trump’s inauguration was “the best day of my life” because it meant his company’s effort to create a U.S.-Russia energy partnership in the Middle East, which reportedly would have included more than two dozen nuclear plants in the region, was moving forward. Copson said Flynn was making sure Obama-era sanctions, which he claimed threatened the nuclear project, would be “ripped up,” according to the whistleblower.

And the whistleblower said Copson flipped his phone around to reveal a text message he said came from Flynn describing the nuclear reactor project as “good to go.” According to the account, the whistleblower didn’t see the substance of the text but recalled seeing a 12:11 p.m. time stamp. At that time, Flynn was on the dais during Trump’s inaugural address.=======

Oh, another “thing” about DT’s Inauguration…remember the oft chanted, oft promised “Lock her up!”??????

Trump: ‘Very honored’ that Clinton attended inauguration

 SOURCE

VIDEO

PARTIAL TRANSCRIPT:

“I was very honored — very, very honored — when I heard that President Bill Clinton and Secretary Hillary Clinton was coming today. And I think it’s appropriate to say. And I’d like you to stand up. I’d like you to stand up,” Trump said, urging the Clintons to acknowledge the lawmakers and dignitaries in attendance.

“And honestly, there’s nothing more I can say, because I have a lot of respect for those two people,” he added.

And then on “60 Minutes” after DT was elected he said THIS about the Clintons:

‘They’re good people,’ Trump says of the Clintons in ’60 Minutes’ interview

SOURCE
…An enormous amount of the 2016 election cycle focused on Clinton’s email server, leading Trump to promise during the second debate that he’d appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the issue if elected president.He took a softer approach when Stahl asked him about it.“I’m going to think about it,” Trump responded. “I want to focus on jobs. I want to focus on healthcare.”

Stahl inquired about the “lock her up” chants at his rallies, which prompted perhaps the most surprising response of all.

“I don’t want to hurt them,” he said, referring to the Clintons. “They’re good people.”

Trump then promised Stahl he’d give her a definitive answer during their next “60 Minutes” interview….

===
Yep.
Just like the wall, getting tough with China, deporting all the illegals, and repealing Obama-Care…DT LIED.

But you who support and defend-and-deflect for DT were warned by all of us, and by DT himself:

This article will be:

SNIPPETS OF TRUTH FROM HITHER AND YON.

The truth, especially if it is unpopular, no longer has any chance at all to win, and often doesn’t even remotely matter.

THAT is sad.

To think that a majority of Americans would rather have a comfortable lie
than to have to face and deal with and uncomfortable Truth.

The majority would rather have a lie that fits THEIR opinion/world-view
than to actually face and live within REALITY.

Let me state unequivocally these unchangeable principles of Truth:

  1. Truth is truth for all peoples, everywhere, all the time.
  2. Truth does NOT change with fads, fancies, whims, and opinions.
  3. Truth is truth no matter what ANY say about and/or against it.
  4. Right is always right.
  5. Wrong is always wrong.
  6. Right does NOT become wrong just because a loud group of educated egg-heads say so.
  7. Wrong does NOT become right just because a loud group of educated egg-heads say so.  
  8. ONLY Truth FREES.
  9. ALL Lies enslave.
  10. To the extent and degree we follow and adhere to The Truth we are FREE.
  11. To the extent and degree we follow and adhere to any lie we are SLAVES.

===

So Kushner was essentially working for Israel, Michael Flynn was working for Turkey, Paul Manafort was working for Ukraine, and Trump was working for Russia. But, hey, America First, right.

ME: Apply the principles of Truth to this. 

What will you believe. What Liars and Liberals tell you? or the REALITY of what you actually see taking place?

Will you believe that IF we do what is wrong, and a time-and-again-proven-FAILURE with enough sincerity, money, and hard work it will “somehow” work out this time and “become the new right”??

OR will you study history, reality, the human condition, and decide to DO WHAT IS RIGHT…even if you do it alone?

We can believe the utter rubbish DT and his cabal of Libs, Nazis, KKK, Stormfront, Alex Jone’s Conspiracy NUTS say…

OR, as a student of History and Reality choose to do what is right and works.

BUT…

we can’t do BOTH-

and we can’t do NEITHER.

Doing nothing IS among the wronger of the wrong choices.

Trump’s sloppy and reckless lawyer strikes again

 December 5 at 11:30 AM

SOURCE

The Post reports:

[President] Trump tweeted over the weekend that he knew then-national security adviser Michael Flynn lied to the FBI about his contacts with the Russian ambassador before firing him in February — and before FBI Director James B. Comey said Trump asked him to be lenient while investigating Flynn. Experts said the president’s admission increased his legal exposure to obstruction-of-justice charges, one of the core crimes under investigation by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III.

But Trump’s personal lawyer John Dowd sought to excuse the president’s tweet in part by telling Axios and NBC News on Monday that the “president cannot obstruct justice because he is the chief law enforcement officer under [the Constitution’s Article II] and has every right to express his view of any case.”

…This is what I’ve been saying all along. tRump hasn’t been feeding his base for 2020 but rather so that if/WHEN he’s impeached / removed they will be a problem …. and imo, maybe a violent one.

The pattern thus far: “There was no collusion” became “Collusion isn’t a crime.” Now, “There was no obstruction” becomes “Obstruction isn’t a crime when POTUS does it.”

Conspiracy is a crime collusion is way too soft a word for what was done. Conspiracy is the word. They conspired to defraud the American people from a fair election

The Evidence Is Damning: What Team Trump Knew and When

We already know that the Trump campaign was aware of — and intended to profit from — Moscow’s interference in the election.

SOURCE

…While much remains unknown about the full extent and nature of the relationship between Team Trump and Russia’s 2016 election activities, we actually know a great deal already. We know that Kremlin intermediaries reached out to Trump foreign-policy advisor George Papadopoulos, and then to Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., in the spring of 2016 offering “dirt” on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton (including, in Papadopoulos’s case, an offer of “thousands of emails”). We know that several other senior Trump campaign officials were aware of these approaches, failed to report them to the FBI, and encouraged the outreach. We also know that, in the summer of 2016, then candidate Trump called on Russia to “find” Clinton’s missing emails, and that several campaign surrogates (including Roger Stone and the Trump campaign’s data firm Cambridge Analytica) and at least one prominent Republican operative (Peter W. Smith) reached out to WikiLeaks (which was laundering information for Moscow) and to Russian hackers to get additional dirt on Clinton….

…Yet, despite all of this knowledge of Moscow’s meddling, candidate Trump repeatedly insisted that the Russians were likely not the ones responsible for hacking Democratic National Committee emails or the account of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. Trump’s denials continued throughout the presidential transition and, as president, Trump has consistently suggested that he trusts Russian President Vladimir Putin’s assurances that the Kremlin did not interfere in the U.S. election over the consensus judgement of America’s intelligence agencies.

There you have it folks.

The evidence is mounting to the sky.

The sheer weight of what is publicly known is enough to have brought down Nixon and Clinton…and there IS more…MUCH MORE!

I will neither predict nor guarantee what will happen…who knows?

I will stick to merely reporting, commenting, and lamenting what is happening and let you read and decide for yourself.

NY Times Just Dropped A Catastrophic Bombshell on the Trump Administration

SOURCE 

The evidence proving the Trump campaign team colluded with Russian officials leading up to the 2016 election is stacking up to insurmountable heights for the Trump administration. A fresh report by The New York Times just added more fuel to the fire.

According to the New York Times, Donald Trump’s former deputy national security adviser K.T. McFarland sent an email to a close friend suggesting that Russia threw “the U.S.A. election to him.” McFarland left her post in May and is now awaiting confirmation to be Trump’s ambassador to Singapore.

McFarland’s email focused on the move former President Obama had made just before leaving office against Russia over meddling in the U.S. election. McFarland told her friend that Obama created a new obstacle for Trump to better relations with Russia “which has just thrown the U.S.A. election to him.”…

…The news couldn’t have come at a worse time for the Trump administration following Michael Flynn’s guilty plea.

As Mueller Closes In, Trump Just Entangled Himself In a Web of Lies

Donald Trump in an early morning tweet this Sunday claimed to have never asked former FBI Director James Comey to stop his investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, stating that “fake news” outlets are “covering another Comey lie.”

“I never asked Comey to stop investigating Flynn,” the president wrote.

“Just more Fake News covering another Comey lie!

Comey, who was dismissed by Trump back in May, told Congress in June that Trump had asked him during an Oval Office meeting in February to end his investigation into Flynn. Trump’s lawyers have denied these claims.

Flynn on Friday pleaded guilty to lying to federal investigators about his contact during the months before President Trump took office with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. ambassador about the restrictions related to the Kremlin’s election interference. He is the first person to have held a position in the Trump administration to be indicted by the special counsel.

Trump shifted his attitude this Saturday when he tweeted that he had to dismiss Flynn because the retired Army general had lied to Vice President Pence and the FBI.

“I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies,” he said in the tweet, which was sent while he was traveling in New York City for fundraising events.

“It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful,” he added. “There was nothing to hide!”

However, two sources familiar with the tweet have since told The Washington Post that John Dowd, Trump’s chief counsel, was the true author behind the tweet.

After Flynn was fired, however, Trump in February said, “I fired him because of what he said to Mike Pence. Very simple.”

Mike Pence Just Got Slapped With Devastating News In Connection to Mueller’s Probe (Video)

Throughout Trump’s presidency, Vice President Mike Pence has played the innocent card. His friend Michael Flynn just took the fall in Mueller’s probe after the president fired Flynn earlier this year for lying to Pence and the FBI.

However, analysts question if Pence was as oblivious to Flynn’s connection to foreign governments as he claimed? (Watch video below)

Americans who are watching Mueller’s probe unfold are questioning who will be the next person to get slapped with an indictment? There is speculation that it could be Don Jr. or Jared Kushner.

CNN’s congressional correspondent, Man Raju, believes Flynn’s guilty plea proves Mueller is investigating Pence. CNN Host Jim Sciutto asked Raju, “I was going to ask you about this, Manu. The timeline is very relevant here. Flynn is interviewed on Jan 24, 2016 by the FBI. Sally Yates, two days later an acting attorney general, raises a red flag because it was apparent he had lied in that interview. and then, it is a couple of weeks later when the president has a meeting with with James Comey and says, ‘Hey, lay off my pal, Michael Flynn.’”

Raju replied, “Yeah, and keeping him on staff, Flynn, for a couple of weeks afterwards. Despite having that warning, very blatant warning from Sally Yates.”

Raju then explained his take on Pence:

“It is also because of what he told the vice president. But I think the vice president is someone that Mueller undoubtedly will be looking at, and people on Capitol Hill will be looking at.”

He continued, “He was head of the transition team. He perhaps may have had some sense of these discussions that were going on. Even if he was not named in that court document today, it does not mean he may not have been aware of some of the things that were happening here. That’s one of the key questions that I think Mueller is going to have to explore.”

New Evidence Surfaced Showing Mike Pence Covered Up Flynn’s Scandal

SOURCE

Now that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn is back in the news, as Special Counsel Robert Mueller collects White House documents related to his dismissal, we should probably take a quick look back to last November.

We’re looking at last November because according to a recently uncovered letter sent to then Vice-President Elect Mike Pence by Congressman Elijah Cummings, Pence was well aware of conflicts of interest and potential security risks that came with appointing Flynn to the NSA.

Many people knew before hand that Flynn had deep, deep connections to foreign government, and this letter contradicts Pence’s previous assertions that he wasn’t aware of potential issues with Flynn.

Scott Dworkin with the Democratic Coalition brought this to our attention and believes Pence should resign:

A Congressman sent this letter 11/18/16 to Mike Pence alerting him that Mike Flynn was a paid Russian agent. Pence knew & lied.

 

This is bad news for Mike Pence.

Why? Because he claimed ignorance about Mike Flynn being a paid foreign agent up until the time Mike Flynn resigned and officially registered as a paid foreign agent.

Breaking: Michael Flynn says Trump Ordered Him to Conspire With Russia

SOURCE

This morning Michael Flynn’s plea deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller became official. Flynn is pleading guilty to a single charge of lying to the FBI, and his other charges – ranging from conspiracy to commit kidnapping to conspiracy against the United States – will be waived. This made clear that Flynn was turning over substantial evidence and testimony to be used against bigger fish. Now it’s being confirmed just how substantial it is.

Michael Flynn has agreed to testify against Donald Trump and the entire Trump family, according to an ABC News report.

MORE: Michael Flynn “is prepared to testify…against Pres. Trump, against members of the Trump family, and others in the White House,” @BrianRoss reports.

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/michael-flynn-charged-making-false-statements-fbi-documents/story?id=50849354

Flynn prepared to testify that Trump directed him to contact Russians about ISIS, confidant says

Flynn will testify that Donald Trump “directed him to make contact with the Russians.” The report doesn’t name specific other members of the Trump family, but based on prior reporting, it’s fairly clear who they are: Donald Trump Jr, Jared Kushner, and possibly Ivanka Trump. Mueller would not have handed out an overly lenient deal like this unless he’s already seen that Flynn can provide testimony and evidence to indict and charge these bigger fish. But there’s more.

ABC says that Flynn will be testifying against “others in the White House” without naming names. There is every reason to believe that Flynn will finger Vice President Mike Pence, as we’ve explained earlier.

BREAKING: Trump aides shocked by something that was obviously gonna happen

Tom Nichols, Twitter Patriot Supreme.

 

AND, LASTLY, IF THE FOLKS AT THE WHITE HOUSE HAD PAID ANY ATTENTION AT ALL THIS WOULD NOT BE SHOCKING THEM. WE HERE IN FLY-OVER LAND SAW THIS WHEN DT ANNOUNCED HE WAS RUNNING!!! WHAT IS IT, YOU ASK?? OH…JUST THIS…..

The Memo: Team Trump in shock as Flynn flips

President Trump was pitched into a deepening crisis on Friday as his former national security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and announced that he was cooperating with the team of investigators spearheaded by special counsel Robert Mueller.

The news, which broke early on Friday morning, delivered a seismic shock to the Trump team.

“Terrible,” was the verdict of one source close to Trump, speaking on condition of anonymity. The source added that Mueller’s success in getting Flynn to flip was “very dangerous” for the president.

The likelihood of Flynn cooperating with Mueller had been on the rise since Thanksgiving, when his attorneys had told lawyers working for Trump that they could no longer share information.

But the confirmation that the former national security adviser had been turned by Mueller was a political and legal bombshell.

The atmosphere of crisis gave rise to chaotic moments…

…The news all but obliterated the coverage of a significant step forward for Republicans on Capitol Hill, as the Senate passed the party’s tax-reform plan — the first significant legislative achievement since the GOP took control of a unified government in January.

The president’s personal lawyer, Ty Cobb, put a positive spin on the Flynn news. In a statement, he emphasized that Flynn had served as national security adviser for less than a month and also described him as “a former Obama administration official.”

Cobb insisted that “nothing about the guilty plea or the charge implicates anyone other than Mr. Flynn.”

But behind the scenes, the atmosphere in Trump’s orbit was different.

“It makes the White House staff very nervous, because no one exactly knows where the investigation will lead next,” said one GOP strategist with close ties to the administration.

Flynn’s decision to cooperate comes against the urgings of the president himself.

Yahoo News reported that Flynn told supporters in April that Trump had encouraged him to “stay strong.”

The previous month, Trump had tweeted, “Mike Flynn should ask for immunity in that this is a witch hunt (excuse for big election loss), by media & Dems, of historic proportion!”

The argument that the Mueller investigation is a witch hunt is now close to untenable.

Flynn flips.

Paul Manfort, Rick Gates, and George Papadopolous have been indicted and charged with varying crimes. Jared Kushner will soon be charged and arrested.

But there is “no collusion”, “no treason”, and it’s a “witch hunt”…right…and I have an ocean front cabana to sell in Western Kansas….
