We Can’t Afford Sen. Susan Collins Teaching Trump Any More Lessons.

Trump Changes Address?

This tweet fluttered past last night and jumped out at me (And yes, I know that it was not an acquittal, it was a cover-up):

The NYTimes:

“This is an unsettled time in Mr. Trump’s Washington. In the days since he was acquitted in a Senate trial, an aggrieved and unbound president has sought to even the scales as he sees it. Colonel Vindman was abruptly marched by security out of the White House, an ambassador who also testified in the House hearings was summarily dismissed, and senior Justice Department officials on Tuesday intervened on behalf of Mr. Trump’s convicted friend, Roger J. Stone Jr., leading four career prosecutors to quit the case.

“More axes are sure to fall. A senior Pentagon official appears in danger of losing her nomination to a top Defense Department post after questioning the president’s suspension of aid to Ukraine. Likewise, a prosecutor involved in Mr. Stone’s case has lost a nomination to a senior Treasury Department position. A key National Security Council official is said by colleagues to face dismissal. And the last of dozens of career officials being transferred out of the White House may be gone by the end of the week.”

Axios scooped that the White House was yanking Jessie Liu’s nomination for a top Treasury post. Liu was the U.S. attorney for D.C., overseeing not only the Stone prosecution but also those of Andrew McCabe and Michael Flynn, and she was due to testify next week.

We really are in uncharted territory now, and there are some arguments we can make that the coup has already happened, and Putin didn’t have to spring for a single bullet to overthrow the United States, and the Republicans are fine with all of it.

    All you need to know about the “American Justus System” is the fact that both tRump and Billee Barrf both treat Rudy Colludy as if he were an actual lawyer, er, real human being, er, superb investigator(?), and that the AG of the US is both a prosecutor and the Prezinit’s personal Defense Attorney.
    That’s right – a man of many hats, wearing a coat of many colors. (Mostly Traitorous RED.)

    It’s not a failure of Conservatism. It’s a feature.

    Unchartered territory indeed. Everyone important is all on the same side, theirs. I begin to see that the “founders” never imagined that we would get so far down the rabbit hole, to begin with.
    We are not so far now from what they came to America for.
    I am really curious as to how we are going to get out of this mess, or is it going to go full nazi? Will the free world finally have to invade us to stop our aggression?

    Pulling the nominations of McCusker for Pentagon Comptroller and Liu for a Treasury job ensures that they will not testify (during their nomination hearings) and not be asked about “inconvenient” emails and court filings. Punish and silence your perceived enemies–that’s a a two-fer in Trumpworld. If you can replace them with sycophants and toadies, that’s a three-fer.
    Neither Judge Sullivan (Flynn) nor Judge Jackson (Stone) are likely to be swayed by Barr’s wheeling and dealing. Flynn and Stone committed offenses that hit at the rule of law and democratic institutions (as Judge Sullivan has already stated in open court). I expect we’ll see the pardon Sharpie soon thereafter (because stubby fingers can’t handle an adult-sized pen). Unpunish and silence your co-conspirators.

    • And Flynn admitted to his crimes and pled guilty, as much as he wanted to undo that with his new whackadoodle lawyer. Roger was convicted by a jury of his alleged peers.

      The judges involved have already shown that their patience with these guys is thin indeed.

      And trump can’t fire them, as much as he’d like to. But he sure will rant and rave at one of his Klanfests about them, and at some point some MAGA’ts will start sending real bombs in the mail to these people.

    I hope the House has another impeachment in the wings to spring on the moron in chief soon. It’s not like they will get any of the bills considered for the duration. Let’s make some more “enemies” to distract these clowns.
