Well when Trump says this is the greatest witch hunt in US history he could be correct.  If you take the meaning of the word the "greatest" to mean the most enjoyable then it has to be right up there!

                 And the handful of Dems who voted for Sessions and Flynn and De Vos and other severely flawed candidates.   You're even worse.  You can't use the excuse of blind partisanship.    Your only excuse is profound ass-licking ignorance.   

 

If it makes you feel any better, only one Democrat voted for Sessions, none for De Vos (2 republican voted against).  National Security Advisor does not require Senate confirmation.

I do agree that most of the cabinet picks were terrible and in several cases Democrats voted for them. As it was early days, I think they have learned their lesson and future confirmations  (there are literally hundreds to go) will show more party discipline.

Compared to HRC with Benghazi and E-mails this hasn't even warmed up yet. How does it feel Trump? Lock him up, Lock him up ! Isn't karma a bitch.

What a cry baby, but this is typical bullyboy style. At the heart of all bullies is cowardice.

You mean, tail gunner Joe Mc Carthy?

 

And Sen. McCarthy's consigliere was Roy Cohn, who later mentored, wait for it, Donald Trump.

To look at the older version of Roy Cohn, it's almost like seeing how the evil fed on him and used him up...nothing but a shell remains

Yes, he was an anti-gay civil rights closet case. 

It's revealing how influential he was in trump's earlier development into the world class sleazeball he is today.

Lo and behold...he also worked with Roger Stone, one of Trump's current operatives in presumably bribing officials during the 1979-1980 campaign to split liberal support in NY state.

And famously anti-semitic (He was Jewish).

 

And Assistant U.S. Attorney prosecuting the Ethel & Julius Rosenberg.

 

Characterized in Angels in America.

 

 

An oldie with a youthful Roger Stone (nice jacket).

I actually thought about this and yes, I agree that a President Pence "could be" worse in terms of his extreme right-wing position on a great many issues.  But consider the hardcore Trump supporters and what they're going to do if Trump is ousted.  I doubt they would instantly warm up to Pence.  Not sure how this would play out, but I don't think you can assume that the GOP will automatically become one big happy family with Pence as President.

Pence might not be the "squeaky clean" religious guy he professes being, and might also be found guilty of a few things e.g. lies.

Let's face it Trump is never going to get one of the good guys to agree to be VP and quite honestly he wouldn't want one.  I suspect that Pence would also be bad news but surely not completely nuts, as Trump is.

 

Amazingly, Gen. Flynn was his first choice for VP.

I wish he would have done that. We could have had them both in jail by now.

Mueller will conduct an investigation into “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump,” along with “any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.”

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/doj-special-counsel-russia-trump_us_591cbfa2e4b03b485cae5465

So start with the possible links and collusion, then anywhere else deemed to be a criminal issue, ie., Executive Branch (ie., POTUS and Cabinet) obstruction of justice, money laundering, unregistered foreign agent, bribery, lying to federal investigators, etc.

You're assuming Mueller will do his job well, and not take 6 years to reach a conclusion.  A good investigator will leave no stone unturned, and delve into any possible law-breaking by Kushner, Ivanka, Pence, and Trump's eldest 2 sons.  Not even even Priebus (obstruction of justice) or lawyer Cohen (lying about clandestine trips to Poland to meet with Russian officials during the campaign, etc) should be exempt from scrutiny.  Same for Erik Prince, Head of Blackwater, who met with a Russian agent in the Seychelles during the campaign. He's Betsy DeVos' brother, and he was an official representative of Trump at that exclusive meeting.

 If the Donald screws this one up its the beginning of the end for him. 

The 'beginning of the end' for Trump was when he announced publicly, 

"Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing, I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press."

An apt description of Trump.

Let us see what the hunt turns up….my bet is it will be a big nothing.

 

Just another ploy by the losing team to derail a legally elected government.

 

Trump is rightfully ignoring all the babble and pressing on.

 

Build that wall.
