So. Several "Not Fake News" sources, including one of Mitch McConnell's top aides as a source, said

Trump cussed out McConnell and McConnell cussed out Trump. Trump cussed out Mitch McConnell for not protecting him from the Russia prob. That's known within our legal system as Obstruction of Justice. The law. The same law right wingers complain about immigrants break by being "illegal". Referring to them exclusively as "illegal immigrants". Mitch McConnell threatening Trump with impeachment. Hmmmmm..... Is "Turtle Head Mitch" growing a spine under that exoskeleton like shell. He's poking that head out from under the German Helmet screaming to the masses, 'I'm not a Nazi! I'm a man. I'm just a man! I'm not a Nazi...I'm not a Nazi.....'

This was also just mentioned on Rachel's show.

to Trump would be him living forever. Admiring himself in a cosmic mirror and eating the infinitely hot buffet while everyone else on the earth is dead but him. God to him is being one with himself. Only angelic navel gazers would be able to read his secret coded tongue.

metaphoric 'Nazi' helmet (Turtle Shell) being his continued support for a President who espouses a postulation that Fascist Nazi White Supremacists are equal to the people who oppose Fascist Nazi White Supremacists. Some of these anti Nazi protestors had family members die to protect the U.S. and join with the Allies to save the world from Fascist Nazi White Supremacists.

It was very noticeable that the House of Rep. investigation was being handled much differently from the Senate's.

NOW we know that Trump is mad at McConnell for not protecting him (thwarting the investigation), which means that the Senate IS conducting a real investigation of sorts (maybe). But the House, with the chairman of the investigation committee Nunes making night trips to the White House carrying papers, didn't seem to be getting anything done. Dragging dragging dragging.

Seems like Trump was able to obstruct the investigation in the House of Rep., to me.

At least from what I read, doesn't seem like the trip proved fruitful. The author of that article is apparently smart, and handed over everything to the FBI, instead.

Then another aide had written to mcConnell or someone that Trump going to AZ & getting rid of Flake & McConnell would only help impeachment by ensuring a Democratic led Senate.

Trump apparently blew a gasket over the reference to impeachment...not to the substance of the aide's message.

Heard this on Rachel's show.

it had to do with him trying to keep Trump under control still because he knows impeaching or invoking the 25th to remove Donald would hurt the Repugnants in the 2018 and 2020 elections.

Way too late, Mitch. He's not teachable neither is he reachable.

You're all saddled with him. You supported him, you've propped him up and now you own him in all his glory. It really must suck to be you and your party, I know.

Hey, at least you hold all the power of all the branches of our government! Oh, yeah, that means it's ALL gonna be on your heads. Damn, that's a tough break, dude.

Dogs, fleas, etc.
