Well it seems like Donnie just isn't getting good advice. I wonder if his lawyer will say that he is responsible for Trumps latest twitter melt down.

Trump, Defending Himself After Flynn Guilty Plea, Says F.B.I. Is in ‘Tatters’

Trump just can't help himself. At what point will he realise that trashing the men and women responsible for investigating crime is not a cool idea when you are probably guilty of more federal crime yourself than the people in an entire neighbourhood.

Quote

In a series of early-morning tweets, Mr. Trump said the F.B.I.’s standing was now the “worst in history.” The attack was one of the harshest in a generation on an independent agency that two days earlier had helped secure a guilty plea and a pledge of cooperation from the president’s first national security adviser.

 

Current and former F.B.I. officials, historians and lawmakers rebuked the president over his efforts to undermine the F.B.I.’s credibility as it investigates whether his campaign colluded with Russian officials to sway the 2016 election. A president who has positioned himself as devoted to law and order is now in a public dispute with the country’s top law enforcement agents.

 

Thomas O’Connor, the president of the association representing F.B.I. agents, defended their integrity in a statement. “F.B.I. agents are dedicated to their mission,” he said, asserting that they demonstrated “unwavering integrity and professionalism” on the job. “Suggesting otherwise is simply false,” he added.

It really is worth a read and should give most on here a good chuckle.

With Trumps recent statements that the Access Hollywood tapes were probably fake and he didn't really say 'Grab em by the pussy', I was wondering how long it would be before this chap spoke out  :cheesy:

Billy Bush: It was Trump's voice on "Access Hollywood" tape

Quote

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former NBC television host Billy Bush accused U.S. President Donald Trump of “indulging in some revisionist history” for reportedly telling allies it was not his voice making lewd remarks as the men waited to film a segment for “Access Hollywood” in 2005.

 

“He said it. ‘Grab ’em by the pussy,'” Bush wrote in an editorial published in the New York Times on Sunday. 

It really is as funny as hell, especially if you are an outside observer.

 

I had a conference call with some folks in the US yesterday morning and the subject eventually got on to current US politics (brought up by the American businessman) and he was saying how utterly depressing and soul destroying it was living under Trump. I kind of felt for him - for a nanosecond. Trump keeps on inviting people to punch him and he has no sense in stopping.

 

As a lesson in the importance of democracy and the democratic process, America has learned an important and painful lesson and has gotten everything it deserved. Now Trump is going to get everything he deserves.

This is interesting.

Diane Feinstein, the highly respected and somewhat moderate democrat/foreign policy hawkish senior politician who up to recently has basically angered the more resistance focused faction of her party saying she doesn't see anything impeachable, well, now she does. I think this is significant that it's coming from her.

Dianne Feinstein Sees Possible Obstruction of Justice Case Against Trump on the Horizon

 

Sen. Dianne Feinstein from California revealed Sunday that the Senate investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election could very well translate into an obstruction of justice case against President Donald Trump. “I think what we're beginning to see is the putting together of a case of obstruction of justice,” Feinstein said on NBC’s Meet the Press. “I think we see this in the four indictments and pleas that have just taken place, and some of the comments being made. I see it in the hyper-frenetic attitude of the White House, the comments every day, the continual tweets.”

I've been out of the loop for 24 hrs, traveling in Burma.  I wondered what Trump would do, as he's been known to shit on his shoes at least one time each 24 hours.  Jingthing brought my attention to Trump dissing the FBI.  I haven't yet checked Youtube.  Surely there's a wealth of commentary there. 

 

Incidentally, with Trump continually yelping 'fake news' and 'the whole Russia thing is fake'"....it's a nothing-burger"  .....Boomers asks seriously:  couldn't those sorts of utterances be considered OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE ?   I mean, if the prez comments on an upcoming trial (like he did recently with the NYC sidewalk murderer) - it colors /influences the trial and jury and sentencing.   One would assume the same applies, and even more so, to a trial where the president is a defendant.    Note:  even impeachment proceedings are considered 'a trial.'

I heard it a bit different.  I'm not sure whether the scenario you mentioned above, would apply.  Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought as long as he is officially president (which he is, until fully impeached, dead/incapacitated, or otherwise forced to leave office), ....that he has pardon powers.   I hadn't heard (until now) that he could not use pardon powers if there are charges against him.

 

They way I see it happening:  Mueller has individual indictments against those people who Trump will surely pardon (and probably pre-pardon, even before any formal trial proceeds).  It could be a long list of a dozen to 20 or more people.  Anyhow, Mueller could put all the indictments in sealed envelopes with instructions: "Open and act upon, the day after Trump leaves office."

 

There could also be a similar envelope for Trump Sr, because as long as he's prez, he can't legally be indicted for a crime.  He can only be subject to impeachment proceedings.

Would the citizens be willing to trade an extra term for a guaranteed full life stretch for the cheetoinchief and ALL his minions?  As much as I would love to watch it happen, I think best to lock them all up sooner rather than later.

"The Constitution gives the House of Representatives the sole power to impeach an official, and it makes the Senate the sole court for impeachment trials." Them's the rules. 

 

There's this, The President, Vice President and all Civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”. However, it's still back to the House to impeach which is Republican. Technically, Trump could be found guilty of something and still not be impeached by the House. So, Mueller would need more than smoke, more like a inferno. There's even a legal nuance that  if a President can even be charged with obstruction of justice. In Nixon's case, it never  got that far, it was just too much weight to the politics. He quit.

Could it not be that he is suffering from a serious, clinical mental breakdown? Where he simply cannot distinguish what is real or not anymore?

No, he's President of the US, and a mind-screwing Hypnotist, "Look into my Eyes.", a Master of Illusion and Persuasion. Besides, it would take Pence and a majority of his cabinet to oust him for being a mentally deranged President. Even then, he could challenge that to the House or Senate.

Even his own party is now calling Trump a kook and unfit for office. Hopefully, his supporters will realize this also.
