So funny to see little Adam Schitt (D-CA) talking about the fact that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker was not approved by the Senate, but not mentioning the fact that Bob Mueller (who is highly conflicted) was not approved by the Senate!

The school kids of the future will struggle to believe any of this actually happened.

Finland's president isn't sure where Trump got the idea that raking leaves is part of Finland's routine for managing its forests

Wow, Mr. President, that’s a good one.

Was that like your answers to Mr. Mueller’s questions, or did you write this one yourself?

Just a minor observation..... we're at the stage where the President of the United States can make a nonsensical statement and nobody at all bats an eyelid,
Weren't we there on the day of his inauguration?

He reminds me of Homer Simpson! For example, this whole Finland 'forest cleaning' story .......

So, "surveillance systems to monitor forests for fires" translates into Trumpspeak as "spend a lot of time on raking and cleaning and doing things to clear forest floors".

Here is something that I thought I would never type: I have located someone more dishonest with less of a moral compass and lower standards than Donald Trump. His name is Jacob Wohl. And I am going to make it part of my life's work to bring him to justice.

Tomorrow we will release the audio call from 'Mike Wilcox' of Surefire Intelligence. You will be amazed by how much he sounds like @JacobAWohl's father @DavidWohl. It will also directly connect Surefire to the mythical 'Lorraine Parsons', meaning Wohl was behind it!

Sadly yet another thing that won’t make any difference to anything. Do you remember watching TV evangelists back in the 80’s and how people lapped up the rubbish they were preaching? You can trace a line from that to modern-day Alex Jones/Rush Limbaugh/Glen Beck and that (IMO) has literally rotted the brains of a certain section of the US electorate.

Wohl is really going to regret this.

Wohl has the FBI, Mueller and Avenatti looking into him as result of his recent actions.

I wonder if he feels it was worth it?

I hope he's stting himself.

I'm not sure they care. They, like Trump, are probably happy to throw easily proven bullst all around because it muddies the water and sows doubt over everything else.

Yeah but ignoring the whole supporters thing, these guys will go to jail one day for this. They must know this.

Do we really think Mueller is going to indict The Donald? Or just the kids and associated parties?
He’ll be stopped before he gets to The Donald.
Now is the time to reread Michael Wolff's book. At the time of release, it got a lot of coverage, but much was dismissed out of hand. With the passage of time, it deserves a second look.

Quoting:
"Bannon, with further disbelief, recounted the details of a recent story from the Financial Times about Felix Sater, one of the shadiest of the shady Trump-associated characters, who was closely aligned with Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen (reportedly a target of the Mueller investigation), and a key follow-the-money link to Russia. Sater, “get ready for it—I know this may shock you, but wait for it”—had had major problems with the law before, “caught with a couple of guys in Boca running Russian money through a boiler room.”

And, it turns out, “Brother Sater” was prosecuted by—“wait”—Andrew Weissmann. (Mueller had recently hired Weissmann, a high-powered Washington lawyer who headed the DOJ’s criminal fraud division.) “You’ve got the LeBron James of money laundering investigations on you, Jarvanka. My xxxxxx just got so tight!”
Bannon quite literally slapped his sides and then returned to his conversation with the president. “And he goes, ‘That’s not their mandate.’ Seriously, dude?”
Preate, putting out the Chinese food on a table, said, “It wasn’t their mandate to put Arthur Andersen out of business during Enron, but that didn’t stop Andrew Weissmann”—one of the Enron prosecutors.
“You realize where this is going,” Bannon continued. “This is all about money laundering. Mueller chose Weissmann first and he is a money laundering guy. Their path to xxxxxx Trump goes right through Paul Manafort, Don Jr., and Jared Kushner … It’s as plain as a hair on your face.… It goes through Deutsche Bank and all the Kushner poo poo. The Kushner poo poo is greasy. They’re going to go right through that. They’re going to roll those two guys up and say play me or trade me. But … ‘executive privilege!’” Bannon mimicked. “‘We’ve got executive privilege!’ There’s no executive privilege! We proved that in Watergate.”
An expressive man, Bannon seemed to have suddenly exhausted himself. After a pause, he added wearily: “They’re sitting on a beach trying to stop a Category Five.”

With his hands in front of him, he mimed something like a force field that would isolate him from danger. “It’s not my deal. He’s got the five geniuses around him: Jarvanka, Hope Hicks, Dina Powell, and Josh Raffel.” He threw up his hands again, this time as if to say Hands off. “I know no Russians, I don’t know nothin’ about nothin’. I’m not being a witness. I’m not hiring a lawyer. It is not going to be my rear end in front of a microphone on national TV answering questions. Hope Hicks is so hosed she doesn’t even know it. They are going to lay her out. They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV. Michael Cohen, cracked like an egg. He”—the president—“said to me everybody would take that Don Junior meeting with the Russians. I said, ‘Everybody would not take that meeting.’ I said, ‘I’m a naval officer. I’m not going to take a meeting with Russian nationals, and do it in headquarters, are you xxxxxxx insane?’ and he says, ‘But he’s a good boy.’ There were no meetings like that after I took over the campaign.”

Bannon’s tone veered from ad absurdum desperation to resignation.

“If he fires Mueller it just brings the impeachment quicker. Why not, let’s do it. Let’s get it on. Why not? What am I going to do? Am I going to go in and save him? He’s Donald Trump. He’s always gonna do things. He wants an unrecused attorney general. I told him if Jeff Sessions goes, Rod Rosenstein goes, and then Rachel Brand”—the associate attorney general, next in line after Rosenstein—“goes, we’ll be digging down into Obama career guys. An Obama guy will be acting attorney general. I said you’re not going to get Rudy”—Trump had again revived a wish for his loyalists Rudy Giuliani or Chris Christie to take the job—“because he was on the campaign and will have to recuse himself, and Chris Christie, too, so those are masturbatory fantasies, get those out of your brain. And, for anybody to get confirmed now, they are going to have to swear and ensure that things will go ahead and they won’t fire anybody, because you said yesterday—Ehhh … ehhh.…ehhh!—‘my family finances are off limits,’ and they’re going to demand that, whoever he is, he promises and commits to make the family finances part of this investigation. I told him as night follows day that’s a lock, so you better hope Sessions stays around.”

“He was calling people in New York last night asking what he should do,” added Preate. (Almost everybody in the White House followed Trump’s thinking by tracking whom he had called the night before.)
Bannon sat back and, with steam-rising frustration—almost a cartoon figure—he outlined his Clinton-like legal plan. “They went to the mattresses with amazing discipline. They ground through it.” But that was about discipline, he emphasized, and Trump, said Bannon, noting the obvious, was the least disciplined man in politics.
It was clear where Mueller and his team were going, said Bannon: they would trace a money trail through Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, Michael Cohen, and Jared Kushner and roll one or all of them on the president.
It’s Shakespearean, he said, enumerating the bad advice from his family circle: “It’s the geniuses, the same people who talked him into firing Comey, the same people on Air Force One who cut out his outside legal team, knowing the email was out there, knowing that email existed, put the statement out about Don Junior, that the meeting was all about adoptions … the same geniuses trying to get Sessions fired"


Though Rachael Brand is no longer around.

From what I read this accusation meant they had to arrest him, but he was then released without charge

Avenatti's been quite open about the trump supporters filing false complaints against him, listing them everytime on his twitter
