Former FBI Director Robert Mueller will oversee the investigation into possible ties between President Trump's campaign and Russian officials.  Seems a good choice.

We can hope.  But a political show trial is what it is ... now or in Stalin's Russia.  Ironic?  I am glad my candidate is enjoying time with his family.  Why would anyone want the President-job?

Mueller is in bed with Hillary and Obama of course.  He helped Hillary sell that uranium to Russia n 2009, and helped Obama get rid of Patreus.  Any long term public official, is stained with contacts with both major parties.  McCain, the real President since 2009 ... has now said Trump shouldn't be impeached.

I'm kind of hoping this drags on until right before the 2018 midterms, maybe after. House Republicans just dither away any chances at all for any form of redemption, get NONE of the things on their agenda accomplished, get sent packing home and let the Democratic party impeach Lumpy and see how his replacement fares with a Democratic congress.   
And before anyone wants to tell me how evil democrats are I happen to be a card carrying tree hugging, bleeding heart progressive, liberal AND PROUD OF IT.. So FUCK OFF!

He's popular inside the agency, and on both sides of the aisle.  I'm certainly willing to step back and let the man work, and not pre-judge how he's going to do it.  And according to everyone who knows him, he will not allow himself to be bullied by Asshole.

I've read comparisons between Trump and Nixon.  They are false.  Nixon understood the international world quite well.  OK, he became a bit psychotic.  But he knew the job and he respected government as an institution for good.

Trump came in psychotic and will leave that way.

Put another way, Nixon brought the inane Spiro Agnew into office with him for cynical RealPolitik campaign reasons and closeted him afterwards.  Trump IS Spiro Agnew.

I think that's nearly a slur against Spiro Agnew -- Agnew himself was a crook, but he was also a functioning politician who was able to get elected as a Republican governor in overwhelmingly Democratic Maryland, by running and for the most part governing as a moderate on segregation and race relations.  So, crook, but not with as completely horrible a record as Asshole.

Nixon was a politician's politician, or everything wrong with politicians... Trump is just a moron.

I don't expect trump to get impeached, and frankly I think he is a better president than Pence so I hope he doesn't. But we have been saying this type of stupidity and douchery will hurt the republican party for years... and all it does is galvanize their supporters and polarize everyone else, so who knows. I have reached a point where I won't hold my breath waiting on that last straw to fall.

The only thing that makes Trump preferable to Pence is that Pence is politician enough and organized enough to get done the evil he wants to do, whereas Trump expects to be able to do it by diktat and when he can't, he could conceivably lose interest and go on to some other vainglorious stupidity.  So in some sense, his own arrogance and incompetence are our best protection from him.

This is the problem for the Democrats.  Any Republican, not just Trump, could go out on the street and shoot a Democrat, and not only not get arrested, but become more popular.  This is not a good time for Democrats.

The best chance the rational world has is to keep Trump in office until 2018 and then throw the Republicans out.  Trump won't even care about that.  But then he will be even less meaningful 2018 to 2020 than he is now, if that is possible.

I do hope (against hope) that our country is not so far gone that Trump will be re-elected in 2020.  It would not surprise me at this point.
