    Re: The policy and politics of Trumpism

    I remember reading a story about him after he died giving some of his better quotes.

    One really good one was when Clinton had nominated someone from Kansas to the federal bench. There was no controversy but he had to be approved by the Senate Justice Committee. The nominee was escorted by Kansas’ senators, Dole and another Republican. In his opening remarks, the nominee said he felt a little strange sitting between two Republicans. Heflin replied with “Now you know how Jesus felt on the cross”.

    What makes me want to puke and hit something at the same time is that his core thinks this makes him a good businessman.

    I only hope that Mueller's strategy is to turn over the criminal evidence he gathers on Trump to the SDNY and the New York State AG in order that they can pursue Trump and his family for the years that are required to take much of his property in forfeiture as a result of the years of money laundering he has been involved with. Mueller obviously can see the obstacles with the AG and Congress taking up a criminal conspiracy involving Trump and I can't believe that he would have his legacy to be allowing Trump to escape all of this unscathed.

    I still think Junior has been hooked, and it’s only a matter of getting him to the gaff. Trump pardoning his own son might be the straw.
    Trump ain’t getting out of this unscathed. Neither are his kids and that gives me some solace.

    No doubt. But with the circumstances, I’m not sure anyone outside of the “Fruitcake Caucus” will tolerate it, though.
    Everybody on the planet who has been watching Trump for the last 20-30 years knows Junior doesn’t go to the bathroom without Dad’s permission; to think he’d do something like this without The Jerk knowing in advance is ludicrous. Especially with JK also involved.
    I think it will be enough to start the impeachment process, and if the case is presented to the American public, I don’t think Congress can or will ignore the ensuing approval of the process.

    sadly, the fruitcake caucus holds a lot of power and are burrowed in throughout our government.

    Re: The policy and politics of Trumpism

    The longer this goes on the more my Eeyore complex makes me think that the Mueller investigation is not going to land the big ..... I do think that Jr. and possibly Kuschner may be caught in the snare, but the big .... will not be indicted. Now if he pardons Jr. he may be in deep dodo. I believe he would throw Kuschner under the bus, but a pardon would not surprise me. I see Manafort and Stone possibly dying in prison and Gates, Cohen, et al spending time in the big house. I believe Mueller will let Trump off the hook to ensure Manafort and Stone never see a day of freedom for the rest of their lives. I also believe the SDNY will make Trump's life and his family after he leaves office hell.

    The reason I feel the opposite is because as they found more and more, they dug deeper and deeper. Mueller wants to make sure he has everything and the case is ironclad.
    I think if he thought he couldn’t make it so, it would have already ended. I don’t think he would have drug it out this long if he didn’t have evidence Trump was involved in the conspiracy, or he found enough evidence of other crimes (such as money laundering) to make certain there would either be grounds for indictment, or impeachment, or both.
    Mueller is good; thorough is good. Anything and everything Trump (and anyone involved with him) did needs to be brought to light. Light is good (although I have to say I used to do some of my best work in the dark).
