Giving a pardon to everyone would be hilarious. It confirms guilt and eliminates pleading the fif.

I just want this to end and just do a do-over of this election, this is the end of the American empire, god help us all.

i actually don't have much in terms of scuttlebutt. Best i can offer is Palmer Report a) asking Flynn to throw Donnie Two Scoops under the bus for royally f*cking him and b) that this is going to be the worst week in office Trump has had.

that may be because more shiat is going to drop, or simply that Congress is finding their balls and pushing back a bit on the possible treason committed.

who knows? I haven't looked at the 3 rumor mills either (Mensch, Taylor, whoever the ex CIA guy is they frequently cite)

clodcomplex is really good at going through the various twitters for breaking news and possible news. He makes the Rachel Maddow threads very informative.

I heard Donnie Two Scoops is in bed with Russian Mobsters who helped him win the election.

I also heard it won't make a damn bit of difference, since Comrade Combover could shoot a man in times square and his support wouldn't drop.

ugh. Welcome Monday.

Spent 6 hours in the emergency room last night/this morning with sister having panic attack.

Harbringer of week to come?

Can someone please arrest this whacko yet?

Junior isn't going to jail.  The GOP will do nothing until Mueller releases his report, then they'll do nothing because the report won't say in big bold letters "Donnie is guilty!".  The report will likely imply the fark out of the guilt, but it isn't the investigator's role to pass judgment.

actually, i kinda like the theory about the lawyer accidentally revealing that Trump was in the meeting. That's going to wake up some of the crusty old farts that have been there longer than anyone (minus McConnell since he hates America) and they'll likely go against Trump for the good of the party

A tole is a toll and a role is a roll, and if we don't get no toles then we don't eat no roles.

The House of Representatives and then the Senate  (c.f.: Clinton, Bill, who was found guilty of perjury by the House but not the Senate, and so kept his role as President.)

Both the House and Senate are now majority Republican, so impeachment (finding of guilt on any charge) is nearly impossible.  Still, there's a midterm election in about a year, and anything can happen after that if Democrats gain control.

IIRC, I do not know of any precedent for a new election, regardless of cause.  It would be nice to start back at the Primaries, but I cannot figure out how that can be done legally.

Yes it is. It's role is to hand out indictments if they feel they have enough evidence to convict . If the Justice Dept acts on them is another story.
 
2017-07-17 06:38:06 PM  
Unless something else drops this week will probably be mostly about Donnie and Ivanka making nothing in the US but water and comforters.

Too bad we can't fast forward to the end where everything comes out and charges are filed but Mueller and his staff have a mountain of sh*t to sort through and the pile gets bigger every day.

Since Mueller has the ability to oversee grand juries and basically chase anything connected to Trump, his campaign, his Presidency, Russians and money, he can then write his report and then it falls to the DOJ for Federal charges, the Attorney Generals of the states where crimes were committed (mostly NY and FL) to decided to seek indictments and then the associated state courts, Federal courts and Congress to try those who get indicted.

the HoR found cause to put Clinton on trial (impeachment).  The Senate held the trial.  There was not two trials.

They won't seize the compounds.  There'll just be a sudden surge of people with guns and Russian accents 'on vacation' moving into them.

Ain't nothing going to happen. Republitard Congress has proven they're all about party lines and not what's good for America. There'll be no need for Pardons, plus, wouldn't they have to convicted before they could be pardoned? It's not a pro-active gesture, it's a retroactive one.

Nope.  And the shoe dropping tonight is four senators (Paul, Collins, Lee and Moran) have come out against Don T Care, effectively killing it.

That's the winner this week. I think if trump gives up the compounds, the IC world is going to go apoplectic. I think trump really has no idea what the intel guys can do, once properly motivated.

Kompromat would probably be the first drop. Then, if we persist in denying them the compounds, I'm sure that they would ramp up the chaos. But I am also not an evil witch, so I am maybe being hyperbolic.
