In his strongly worded two-page resignation letter (read it here), Secretary of Defense James N. Mattis rebuked Comrade Prznint Stupid for his military policies and lack of respect for allies.
Mattis’ departure sent “shock waves” through Washington, as a government shutdown looms, the stock market plunges, and America’s alliances grow more strained.
Comrade Stupid’s BAE Vlad Putin is thrilled about Trump’s decision to pull U.S. troops out of Syria. Maybe the bromance can be saved?
Now, while the Grifter-in-Chief had you looking at the left walnut shell, what was he doing with the one on the right?
- Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, the noted commode-for-the-well-hung man empresario, refused to seek a formal ethics review. Now he can do a little sidestep and not follow the official recommendation that he recuse himself from Mueller’s investigation. Oh, and so now instead of being recused, he will be getting briefings on that investigation.
- William Barr, whom Comrade Stupid intends to install
as a lackeyattorney general as soon as possible, is already getting prepped by amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell & Co, before the new Senate is sworn in.
- Barr sent an unsolicited memo to both DOJ and the White House that argued that Mueller’s obstruction-of-justice probe is not legitimate. I wonner how Comrade Stupid learned about that?
So, you know, Whitaker can begin scrapping the Mueller probe while everyone is eggnogging, before handing Barr a crippled investigation to kill off next year.
