Josh Marshall made this connection: All the versions of the story that conclude that Trump is innocent and not a Russian stooge can remind one of the Ptolemaic system of what we now call the Solar System.

Yes, the math does work; you can predict the future locations of the planets and most of the eclipses, but is the Solar System really that complicated, or is there a simpler explanation?

Copernicus came along with one.

Is Trump a Russian stooge? Well, that's the simplest explanation of the known facts.

His nomination has been stalled for months? Good!

The awful truth is that the number of people interested in, and with any business holding, any high office within the Trump Administration is vanishingly small. The Democrats need to make sure everybody understands this and not simply acquiesce to the appointment of whatever scumbag Trump wants to hire to make it harder for US government agencies to do their jobs.

He will be confirmed. As Maddow talked about last night. He will get confirmed, Wray will somehow be fired, he will take over Wrays spot, squash the report without having to first Mueller.

If it goes to SCOTUS then you have to deal with the new turd.

I am guessing that everyone affiliated with Russian banks has dirt on the laundromat manager, Trump.

The Hill banned me. I am very careful not to flame, curse or say anything inflammatory over there, despite all the Nazi rhetoric spewed there on a daily basis.

Anyway, of course he has Russian ties. I'd be suspicious if he didn't.
 
2018-07-11 01:44:04 PM  
Everybody is affiliated with Russians right? All of us have Russian friends and business contacts. It's perfectly normal so of course everybody Trump nominates has Russian ties.

2018-07-11 06:59:20 PM  
I see two possibilities here.

1. Trump really is the Russian asset he clearly appears to be and just doesn't care that he's telegraphing it because he knows the republicans won't do anything about it.

2. Trump really is the hopeless idiot he clearly appears to be and just nominates people with the intention of trolling because he doesn't actually have any idea how to pick a qualified candidate, nor does he care to put forward that much effort.

I don't know how anyone who loves this country can be a republican.
As far as I'm concerned every republican is just a Soviet Pod Person.  They derped up their hate for Hillary and Obama so far past the redline that they gladly spread their legs for Boris.
Republicans = Pinko Swine.

At least the Jews who sold their neighbors out in the holocaust were doing it out of survival. You Republican pigs did it because a black man was president and because a woman wanted to be.

You realize that unlike your fellow non republican country people that the Russians will sell you the split second you stop being an asset.  Now I'm Not so sure. The Russians are the enemy, we both have multiple doomsdays pointed at each other, you've sold out our country to the enemy, I'd not piss on your children if they were on fire.  The worst kind of cancer is too good for you.

His Russian stooginess does not and is not required to explain his poor hiring practices. His poor hiring practices is ingrained in him because (a) he hates to be upstaged by people more competent or smarter than him, and (b) he can hold a tighter control on that person because that person can't otherwise find a similar job and probably has some skeletons in his/her closet that can kill a career. He always seems to find people who has a dark past to control.

and (c), shiatty people attract and gravitate to shiatty people.  Eg., I was thinking of applying to be a US Attorney had Clinton won the election. Now? You couldn't get me to work for this administration on pain of death.

Another meme-only-poster with no balls, I can respect that (see above).

Yes we know communism isn't a factor. We're talking about neo-fascism, so when anyone with any brains talks about Russians we aren't talking about communism--we're talking about V Putin. Do I really have to link you to what he is trying to do in eastern europe? And the extent to which he butt-owns your patron saint D Trump? Eat ass, scumbag.

As much as I hate this appointment, and as much as I think it will undermine the investigation, I don't think it can or will put the Mueller investigation in jeopardy.

I'm pretty sure you can't just go up to a US Attorney and say, "give me everything you have in this case," even if you are the Asst Atty General.

I'm also relatively certain that they've taken steps to compartmentalize information, and (if they're sufficiently paranoid, which they probably are) to set up traps in case someone starts leaking information.

Am I the racist? I mean sure I have subconscious biases just like everyone else who is honest with themselves but I try hard to keep them in check and not overtly cloud my judgement.

Can you be racist against soviet biatch-boys?
Are soviet biatch-boys their own race?
Have they diverged that far from the fat, balding, white male to become their own race?

And yes, if it's dark and I'm in my car in the wrong part of town and some shadowy figure wearing a maga hat approaches me you're damn straight I'm going to make sure my doors are locked. Does that make me a racist?
I'm confused.
