When you think the GOP minority leader could not get any more despicaple

He is purposely not naming people to the intelligence committee led by rep. Schiff in order to stop them from having a quorum and being able to act. The immediate consequence is that they cant act to send the transcripts of the committee to Mueller as he requested.

Pundits are already saying the stone indictment is nor enough for collusion.

What the hell is it going to take ?

Because you know, Wikileaks is not Russia and we dont know if trump knew what was going on and willingly doing it. Apparently it's very hard to commit any crime if you believe pundits. You really have to mean it..

Congressman Eric swalwell explicitly says trump is an agent of russia.

On MSNBC, chris matthews asked him point blank and swalwell responded without any hesitation that at this point he is convinced trump is working for russia.

Trump shows how powerful the presidency is and how many loopholes the constitution has.

Our founding fathers likely never anticipated that we could have such an inept treasonous individual for president who would utilize every ounce of power the office of the president possesses to enrich himself and sell the country to foreign powers.

It did not help that on matters like trade, the president has wide latitude to impose tariffs, negotiate or break agreements and so on. It used to be the purview of Congress. Years ago they ceded that to the presidency in order to make it easier to negotiate treaties. It's all well and good until you get a con man in charge.

The remedy , impeachment and removal is wholly inadequate when that president has the help of a complicit congress which until recently was controlled by his party.

There are going to be many theses written on Trump.

Some in political science analyzing the whole behavior of the GOP in the trump era, some in psychology investigating how he managed to indoctrinate so many people. It has become a cult. Some of his most hardcore followers are completely removed from reality and take everything he says as gospel.
