Mueller seeks to ask Trump about Flynn, Comey ousters

indicating an intensifying focus on potential obstruction of justice issues

Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III is seeking to question President Trump in the coming weeks about his decisions to oust national security adviser Michael Flynn and FBI Director James B. Comey, according to two people familiar with his plans.
Mueller’s interest in the events that led Trump to push out Flynn and Comey indicates that his investigation is intensifying its focus on possible efforts by the president or others to obstruct or blunt the special counsel’s probe.

Per Washington Post

With Mueller getting closer and closer to trump

If Mueller has strong evidence against trump,

Could Mueller petition Supreme Court for legal right to indict trump?

If Mueller can turn Sessions, a lot of dominos could begin falling. trump could begin taking desperate steps to stop Mueller.

The legality of indicting a sitting President has not been settled by Supreme Court (I believe). Could the Supreme Court make a limited, one time ruling that it is legal to indict trump?

With the court being so far to the right, it may not work. But if trump is generating a constitutional crisis, who knows?

Any thoughts?

The GOP-trump reality show

The public will still be interested in the next episode of this show in three weeks.

Saving Dreamers has close to a 90% approval rating.

McConnel is a disgusting, slimy worm. But, perhaps more importantly, he looks like a slimy worm.

If the next episode of GOP-trump reality show plays out by Mitch breaking his promise, the ratings will be HUGE!

If the Senate passes protection for Dreamers and the House can't or won't, the ratings will be HUGE!

If the GOP has a civil war over this, Democrats will just watch and cheer. I believe this is likely. The nation's attention is glued to GOP-trump reality show. And the rating will be HUGE!

Unseemly to rejoice about someone's legal troubles

So many here are enjoying the legal jeopardy that Trump's associates are having.

HeHeHawHawHaw. Oh, wait! Am I doing what I am accusing others of? What's that called? Oh yeah, PROJECTION.

Like "Lock her up! Lock her up! Lock her up!".

What a great day! My dumbass smile has not left my dumbass face.

HaHaHa. Fuck you, Donald!

Ads that autoplay audio loudly and repeatedly

I love DU. Today, and briefly a few weeks ago, ads that play audio very loud and repeatedly have been appearing. I have been on your site briefly several times today and each time left when the audio started. From the home page, I was not even able to scroll past ad video to read.

This renders the site unusable for me. I am old and disabled and keep my speakers on high to control volume from whatever app I am using. Could you please not use ads that do this. I appreciate the need for ads and sometimes even visit them (which is rare for me) as I trust DU not to lead me to malicious sites.

Again, I love DU and have been a member for less than a year. It has become my favorite site. Thank you.

Playing Trump

Trump has two goals in life:

1) applause and admiration

2) avenging perceived slights

Plus he is as stupid as a pile of shit.

The Dems can use this. Trump has already succeeded in exposing the GOP for what they are.

By letting him believe he can get revenge on McConnel, Ryan, GOP AND feel loved and admired, he can be used to enact policies that are good for America and against the GOP goal of destroying American Democracy.

Use him. The GOP is terrified of his base of deplorables. Make the GOP own their hypocrisy and dishonesty. They will soon be waged in a war against Trump and his base. By playing Trump, the GOP monster can be destroyed.

I know doing anything with Trump is onerous and a horrible thought, but he CAN be used to our benefit. We are stuck with the GOP heading the executive branch for more than 3 years. By manipulating this dumbass, we can demolish the GOP blight on our Democracy.

Am I wrong?

Trump The Ineloquent Sociopath

By sociopath, I mean having no empathy.

Ted Bundy was one. But he could fit in with normal people. Knew how to disguise his evil. It was a learned skill and not a true feeling. He learned it by living among real people in the real world.

Adolf Hitler lived in a hostel. He interacted with other ordinary Germans serving in WW1.

Trump was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He has never interacted with real people in the real world. The only things he knows about the real world is what he sees on Fox and Friends.

Trump is only capable of mimicking caring about real people. Other sociopaths have hidden their putrid inner self with much greater skill. They had practice in the real world.

Watch him attempt to show caring. Telling disaster victims to enjoy it? Be afraid America. Be very afraid. American lives, Korean lives, any lives mean as much to him as a housefly life does to a normal person.

Russian kopromat on GOP

If Russia colluded with GOP to help them win election ...


GOP passes a health care bill that America hates and causes health care chaos.

Putin will have enough kompromat on GOP to completely control them.

DU friends, Russia is mostly in control of GOP and will soon have enough leverage to dictate American policy to them.

I live in small town in North Texas. Republican district. I believe Texas and all of America would be Blue if people were motivated to vote. Fear and hatred easy to campaign on. Reason and caring take an effort to explain and get people to listen to.
