Mueller already has an ace in the hole in the pre-emptive pardons front. He is partnered with New York Attorney General Schneidermann in the investigation, and they are probably going to issue joint indictments/subpoenas. Trump can pardon his associates charged with federal crimes (assuming that Dreeben doesn't find a limit to that), but he can't pardon anyone charged with state crimes (especially since almost all business for the campaign was conducted in New York City).

Man, this nothingburger Mueller is preparing is amazing. He's even getting insurance on when he delivers said nothingburger.

I always get insurance on things that don't exist...

Mueller seems like he's really dotting all the i's, crossing all the T's and oiling all the handcuffs.  He should send a tailor over to the White House for an orange jumpsuit fitting, just to troll 2 scoops.

Does that person have Parkinsons? If you can't highlight random passages in an attempt to make it look like you've done work, and at least keep it in a straight line, then just go back and try again. CTRL Z. Sheesh.

I mean come on, look at what has been highlighted, almost everything, except the "expertise in money laundering and foreign bribery", which is actually an important part. NOT "He's Michael Dreeben". or "The president judging by his tweets".

I do genuinely hate this trend people on Twitter have of highlighting screenshots of text with seeming scant regard for what they're highlighting, because they just want to make it look like it's more important.

I say it will be a group of girls like Babymetal, but incredibly incredibly angry, who occasionally break into Thee Oh Sees levels of psychedelic weirdness. Their hit song will be a cover of Neu's Lila Engel during which a real Republican is blood sacrificed to the Goddess.

RexTalionis: Mueller already has an ace in the hole in the pre-emptive pardons front.

Pretty much this, but it's also nice to have a lawyer that is somewhat equipped to legally challenge Presidential pardons. I would think that Mueller will hit Trump in so many ways it would take days for him to figure out how to pardon his people, and by the time he finally gets off the twitter shiatter Schniedermann will already have the state charges locked up.

Yes, that doesn't suck. More reverb, walls of death guitars, and motorik beats.

Not necessarily. It is possible to overload Donny so much it will take him all day to craft a handful of pardons, which will immediately out the largest players in public opinion, while leaving them wide open to State charges. It may drive ol' 2scoops Sundowner to an early stroke, and I'm not talking about his 3AM post-twitter release on Melania's back.

Trump literally could never survive anywhere else.  He is the city version of the country bumpkin who cannot speak another language, and not get out of his comfort zone.  Vegas is tragic, but Trump is gonna get the hell outta dodge to go eat a burned steak and the Trump whatever in Vegas.

I know guys like him in Colombia from the states, they go get some Colombian tail that is hot by their standards, and then last 1-2 years in the country because it isn't just like the US.

The Arpaio pardon doesn't seem to have done anything.  If the courts are willing to fight it there's a lot of procedure to go through.  I think people were willing to let Nixon off the hook because they just didn't want to go there.
