The fact that Poppadoopy and Flynn don't have sentencing dates yet means this isn't anywhere close to wrapping up.

meanwhile, the stock market has been imploding, the fedgov is shut down, and trump is demanding a military parade.

this is what the trumpers wanted, although I'm hard pressed to figure out just why anyone thought putting trump in charge of the nation was a good idea.

Everytime I see that photo of Putin on horseback, I wonder how many stables they had to look through to find that pony.  That is a very small horse, obviously chosen to make Putin look big and buff.

Those two were charged and plead guilty to a sample charge in a single court sitting. In other words they got plea deals and the only reason they'd get those is because they can implicate others up the foodchain.

Last night it was reported that Kushner was in the frame from Flynns cooperation so I would not be surprised if he's next to be pinched. Aside from that, we have the separate strand against Trump of obstruction which seems likely to land soon too.

I wonder if Mueller at this point is just sitting back and letting the tension building guide him?  I know when my kids have something to hide, if I start one way and they act all laid back and cool, I have to immediately change course.  Once I'm nearer the actual guilty deed, the more the guilty party tries to distract and deflect.  The entire White House, and most of Congress is acting like a whole pile of 4 year olds near an empty cookie jar.

I can honestly say I'm not invested in whether Schiff gets punked, or in Pelosi's grandson's minority status.

So, good luck with whatever side you are cheering for.

How do you know? Easy, just look at the actions of Trump and the Republicans. Ridiculous Memos, obfuscation, miscontruing of facts to support bunked theories (Uranium one, etc), all while an army of Russian bots/trolls flood the comments sections of everywhere, including sometimes here on Fark.

Basically, the GOP, with multiple resignations and full circling of the wagons, are not by any means acting like they are innocent. Nobody openly attacks the FBI if they have nothing to hide and trust in the system that they are innocent.

Mrs Shemp is an immigrant. Thought it dangerous that almost nobody was talking about how the White House was possibly reverting to rule by family dynasty over the past 30 years.

Bush I

Clinton I

Bush II

Obama

Clinton II

And given Hillarys massive Libya effup to please NATO and France I'm still inclined to think anyone is better than her use of war to build up to a presidential campaign.

Not to mention the tan suit, (4 weeks); The brown mustard problem, (2-3 weeks); insisting that President Obama was making some sort of "distinction" between calling the Benghazi action "an act of terror" instead of "terrorism" (2 months), the First Lady's "bare arms dress debacle") 3-4 weeks; Her promotion of actual nutritive content in public school lunch programs being some sort of Islamic Communist Sharia-Law subversion of our Great Democracy (2 months).

Openly downplaying the raid that got Osama bin Ladin, then when some of those same commandos were killed in a helicopter crash a few weeks later it was "very suspicious" and a "coverup for some nefarious reason" (2 months).

The "birth certificate" thing was SIX YEARS of that propaganda bullshiat, much of it bought and paid for by Donald Trump himself. I know several people who insist to this day that the Hawaiian birth certificate is a fake, that Obama was born in Kenya, raised in an Islamic terrorism school and was given a free ride at Harvard because of his skin color.

I know a couple of folks who will argue that California is a total welfare state and nobody there works for a living.

So the crazies have taken over the asylum, and are now insisting that, as they now hold ownership of it, that they should be able to run it as they please, and that Vladimir Putin saved America from the Islamic Communists who tried to impose Sharia Law by opening the border with Mexico.

This is the reason why I'm trying to get out of working in machine shops. The lunchtime conversations have become repetitive and exhausting.

I have been well-infromed that the lack of a sentencing date for either of them is a result of Mueller's sham investigation unraveling thanks to Nunes's memo exposing the widespread corruption in the Deep State and completely exonerating Trump.

You don't finish sentencing until they fulfill their side of the bargain - giving you all the dirt in open testimony and statements that spring the bear trap on the higher-ups.  That prevents them from getting their light sentence, then saving their friends for cash and favors later.  Especially if they think they might need more info from them later.  Immunity cannot protect them...yet.

When this happens, it'll happen fast.  It'll be a matter of weeks to see all of the dominoes fall in public.

I haven't read that they've been sentenced. They've just plead guilty to the charge. I assume their sentence, and any other potential charges they could be slapped with are conditional on their continuing cooperation.

ArcadianRefugee: Because they didn't want a career politician and figured a businessman would be good for the job in politics! Just like I don't hire a career plumber and figure an electrician will be good for my plumbing.


It's genuinely mind-boggling, considering even the shiattiest jobs have requirements, and that's why I can't just magically switch careers as I struggle in my field (I do have something promising, but I applied in November, had a phone interview in January, and the first in-person interview on this past Wednesday (and sent in a sample).  I am expected to be more qualified to write brochures than the president of the united states is. And I get it. Why hire someone who has no experience and needs 100% of their training on the job? Who may not even develop the skills or learn quickly enough? That's exactly what happened here, though.  And it is of great consequence for the country and the world.

That said, you see how it happened when so many people feel as if the government is failing them, so, why not try something different? The problem with that is, when that chance you took isn't working out, you don't get to fire them and have a do-over, nor is there anything that can be done for years to come. You take a chance on someone in your office or other business and they can't perform the basics of the job, and in fact, are causing the company harm, they get fired.  "Hey, why not try some random person?" was the worst response to feeling as if the government failed the people.... and that started with the shiatshow of a primary the Republicans ran.

What I don't understand - and probably never will - is how he was so openly offensive and disparaging toward veterans, women, the handicapped, Mexicans, Muslims, and anyone else who bothered him on any given day and none of it stopped people from voting for him.  The guy rants and raves about the military and how important and great it is, but put down John McCain's service and insulted a Gold Star family - both while campaigning. And his supporters buy his bullshiat about veterans and the military?

serpent_sky: And his supporters buy his bullshiat about veterans and the military?


Because they care about the military in the same way a 10-yr old cares about Batman. They think it's "cool" but don't really give a shiat about the quality of life veterans experience. In fact, the more miserable that soldiers are, the more grizzled and cool they get.
