He's coming for all of them. It's pretty much the entire executive branch, the AG, majority leaders of the house and Senate and a whole slew of toadies. It's going to take a while because if it all sticks it's going to wipe out a big chunk of the government. It's not just making the cases airtight it's figuring out what happens next. There is no playbook for this.

Everyone knows Trump & co. are corrupt and most like colluded with the Russians/foreign agents to undermine the election.

Why do I feel like nothing will happen though? Teflon Don will survive to live another day. Not getting my hopes up. The GOP will win the midterms and DT will win re-election in 2020. Don't underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups. Bush got elected twice and he's Einstein compared to this clown.

There is something about this though that I think will bring out the Patriotism in Americans...

I agree with Hector..this is huge

IMO our Federal Law Enforcement Officials may take this more than personal.. I feel some similarities to Pearl Harbor..

Surprise attack that is now a Russian Virus running wild in all reaches of our Govt?

I'm sure you've all see by now that Trump let Ivanka sit in for him at one of the G-20 meetings, which he got skewered for on Twitter and in the press. So of course he took to twitter this morning and he got a very special response to his Freudian slip:

Quote:
Chelsea Clinton‏Verified account @ChelseaClinton

Good morning Mr. President. It would never have occurred to my mother or my father to ask me. Were you giving our country away? Hoping not.



Quote:
Donald J. TrumpVerified account @realDonaldTrump

If Chelsea Clinton were asked to hold the seat for her mother,as her mother gave our country away, the Fake News would say CHELSEA FOR PRES!

PostPosted: Mon Jul 10, 2017 6:41 am    Post subject: The State of Hate In America

Quote:
Hate symbols are showing up around the country: nooses in the nation's capital, racist graffiti on the front gate of LeBron James' Los Angeles home, a banner with an anti-Semitic slur over a Holocaust memorial in Lakewood, N.J. On Saturday, the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan rallied in Charlottesville, Va., less than two months after white supremacist Richard Spencer — who coined the term "alt-right" — led a similar protest in the city against the removal of a Confederate monument. Several white nationalist groups are planning another rally for Aug. 12.


Quote:
By 2055, the U.S. will not have a single racial or ethnic majority, a change driven by immigration, according to the Pew Research Center. An analysis conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute and The Atlantic — based on surveys taken before and after the election — reveals that members of the white working class concerned about immigration were more than 3.5 times more likely to vote for President Trump. Nearly half of white working-class Americans said, “things have changed so much that I often feel like a stranger in my own country.”


Quote:
When the approximately 50 KKK members converged on Charlottesville this weekend to protest what Klan member James Moore called “the ongoing cultural genocide ... of white Americans," more than a thousand counterprotesters showed up to decry hate in their city. The Klan members were heavily outnumbered, chants of "white power" drowned out by "racists go home."

Wouldn't bush be a bad example to use if he's a lot brighter?

This administration has caused me to not watch as much the news channels. It's so depressing watching this administration dismantle Democracy.

Newest drip drip drip story: NYT: Trump Team Met With Lawyer Linked to Kremlin During Campaign

Quote:
Two weeks after Donald J. Trump clinched the Republican presidential nomination last year, his eldest son arranged a meeting at Trump Tower in Manhattan with a Russian lawyer who has connections to the Kremlin, according to confidential government records described to The New York Times.

The previously unreported meeting was also attended by Mr. Trump’s campaign chairman at the time, Paul J. Manafort, as well as the president’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, according to interviews and the documents, which were outlined by people familiar with them.

While President Trump has been dogged by revelations of undisclosed meetings between his associates and Russians, this episode at Trump Tower on June 9, 2016, is the first confirmed private meeting between a Russian national and members of Mr. Trump’s inner circle during the campaign. It is also the first time that his son Donald Trump Jr. is known to have been involved in such a meeting.



Jr. now says it was an innocent meeting to discuss the issue of Russian adoption. All involved had previously denied meeting with any Russians at Trump Tower.


Quote:
Bradd Jaffy‏Verified account @BraddJaffy

Don Trump Jr:
—March: Never met w/Russians on campaign issues
—Yday: It was about adoption
—Today: She said she had damaging info on Clinton


Given he lies like his father, the truth is actually something even worse than admitting he was meeting Russian to obtain info to damage Clinton. That's half-way to almost admitting collusion and yet it's an obvious lie. What is he really hiding? Mueller's coming for you too, Jr.



Supposedly a Russian woman was introduced to Trump, Jr., and that woman had absolutely nothing of value in terms of Hillary or the DNC. On the surface, that's surprising, as the Russian intelligence service surely would have vetted her first. My guess is that it was a Russian setup, with the intention of compromising Trump's idiot son, just as they had compromised Manafort and Flynn.

Barring some health issue I think Trump finishes his term and possibly gets re-elected to another. I have very little faith in the citizens of this country.

Master of projection, you can basically figure out what Trump is up to by noting what he accuses others of.

Apparently it's a little more convoluted than that:

How a Music Publicist Connected Trump’s Inner Circle to a Russian Lawyer Peddling Clinton Dirt. Rob Goldstone had a good in: he had set up the mogul’s most successful venture in Russia.

You need a mega-sized flow chart to keep track of the cast of characters. Suffice it to say, Jr. was up to no good. If you attempt to rob a bank but somehow don't succeed in escaping with any cash, you still attempted to rob a bank.

Sean Spicer's been demoted, not on paper. I see Sarah Huckabee doing the pressers nowadays. It won't be long before she becomes another Trump staff scapegoat.

Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan are probably not Donald's favorite people right now. They're going to be on the list.
