This is actually pretty smart for Donnie. I'm shocked. SHOCKED, I say.

Not at all shocked that he's terrible in execution, but it was a helluva gamble that normal people may have pulled off

'This Will Be The End Of Trump's Administration,' Says Increasingly Nervous Man For Hundred and Seventh Time This Year
 
2017-07-31 11:42:37 PM  
Ftfa: Trump Jr. did not respond to the Post's requests for comment Monday, while his attorney said he and his client "were fully prepared and absolutely prepared to make a fulsome statement" about the details surrounding the meeting.

fulsome

[fool-suhm, fuhl-]
adjective
1) offensive to good taste, especially as being excessive; overdone or gross
ex: fulsome praise that embarrassed her deeply; fulsome décor.
2) disgusting; sickening; repulsive
ex: a table heaped with fulsome mounds of greasy foods.


Well. Alrighty then.

If this story is correct, it shows POTUS participating in a conspiracy to obstruct justice. No ifs, ands or buts about it - This is evidence of a crime committed by the sitting president of the United States.

Defend it, traitors.

"Flying home from Germany on July 8 aboard Air Force One, Trump personally dictated a statement in which Trump Jr. said that he and the Russian lawyer had "primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children" when they met in June 2016, according to multiple people with knowledge of the deliberations. The statement, issued to the New York Times as it prepared an article, emphasized that the subject of the meeting was "not a campaign issue at the time."

The claims were later shown to be misleading."

FTA:  The president's attorney, Jay Sekulow, refused to speak about details regarding Trump's involvement with the statement: "Apart from being of no consequence, the characterizations are misinformed, inaccurate, and not pertinent," Sekulow said in his statement to The Post.

Well that's certainly a limp denial. Being 'of no consequence and not pertinent' are quite subjective and certainly open to interpretation. "Inaccurate" according to whom? The attorney or his client, the Liar-in-Chief? Maybe if they fire a few more people, this whole Russian nonsense will go away...

I'd bet this one stays greenlit. The Hill seems to go easier on Trump than other critical articles.

Plus, it establishes that D2S knew about the meeting for much longer than he previously admitted to.

Because doing nothing hurts THEM, not trump.  And while I don't trust the GOP do ever do the right thing, I do trust them to cover their own asses.  they've sent MORE than enough signals to this white house that they WILL impeach him if he gets busted doing something illegal....so yes, they will impeach trump.

If this administration were anywhere near competent, we'd be thoroughly farked in the ass for a very long time to come.  As is, the damage their causing reminds me of a kid playing with a loaded gun; chaotic and deadly, but hopefully short-lived.

We only get one chance for Mueller (or anyone else in his position) to bring down Trump. Better for Mueller and his team to go over everything with a fine-tooth comb than for Donnie to walk free because someone made a rookie mistake like using "too" where they should have used "to" or some other seemingly minor error.

One of the WaPo writers who broke the story used the exact same word in the same context on Maddow tonight. Don't know if she got it from him or vice versa.

Because Mueller only gets ONE shot at this, and he know it.  so he's being very very thorough and making sure nothing gets missed.

trump should be very scared right now.  And given some of his latest tweets, I think he's starting to feel the heat.

Whenever I see a young child, I try to imagine what it's going to be like when they search for Donald Trump for a class assignment and find "Grab them by the pussy" or "He hit my hands. Nobody has ever hit my hands. I have never heard of this. Look at those hands. Are they small hands? And he referred to my hands if they are small, something else must be small. I guarantee you there is no problem. I guarantee you." when they're in seventh grade.

Are we just going to gloss over 2015 to whenever and forget all this happened?

From the WAPO, who broke the story.

"This was ... unnecessary," said one of the president's advisers, who like most other people interviewed for this article spoke on the condition of anonymity.

I really, really wish more reporters would grow some balls.  The statements weren't misleading.  They were deliberate lies.

meanwhile, the GOP is looking at this white house and preparing to impeach one of their own for gross incompetence and blatant corruption.

I think now even the GOP is tired of trump's incompetence.  they've been telling him to knock it off with the bullshiat and start acting like an adult.  thing is...trump isn't acting.  this chaos and stupidity is how he runs his entire life and business.

Trump's costing the repubicans a lot of time and money - both are things they cannot afford to lose.  they also cannot afford to spend this much time on failure.  trump's gotten nothing done.  the GOP had a whole raft of legislation they planned on slamming thru congress this year and THEY got nothing done also because of trump's incompetence and chaos.
