Trump revived attacks on sanctuary cities to distract from Mueller report release

Trump reportedly publicly revived an earlier proposal to release migrants in sanctuary cities in part to distract from lingering questions about special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, according to the New York Times.

Shortly after news broke that the administration had rejected the idea, Trump sent a series of tweets claiming it was still being considered. Trump has deliberately escalated his language to enliven his base since the Mueller investigation’s conclusion, according to the Times.

Once Attorney General William Barr delivers the redacted report, the White House reportedly plans to have aides speed-read it, skipping all sections related to potential criminal conspiracy and only reading the section on why Mueller was unable to determine whether Trump obstructed justice.

The White House legal team also plans to zero in on why Barr’s four-page summary of the report said “much” of Trump’s conduct was public, and which aspects were not, according to the Times.

Redacted but he's still shitting his pants.

1. This is going to be a helluva week ahead.


Congress on recess, Ash Wednesday and Good Friday distractions.

I expect it to drop on Tuesday.

2. Gotta wonder: Why does the report scare Trumpers if it "exonerates him"?

Hmmm......

4. I'm pessimistic about the report being

terribly revealing beyond what we already know, with redactions so heavy it becomes just another point of frustration and despair.

Can you tell I'm in a mood?

6. It's naive to think Red Don hasn't seen every jot and tittle of the Mueller report by now. Him and

... his crew don't do the whole rules and "law" thing.

7. The "sanctuary cities" thing is still getting airtime?

It seemed to splat, got a brief notice, and then vanished into the passing stream of sewage that I think of as most news coverage.
