How would you like to entrust America’s future to Senate Majority Leader, Bought Bitch Mitch McConnell (R-KY)? Frankly, I’d feel more secure putting my kitty dingles in a vice! However, we may not have any choice in the matter. There are strong indications that Putin’s Puppet intends to wait for the Senate to go on vacation, fire Sessions, and replace him using a recess appointment. The only way to prevent it is for McConnell to keep the Senate nominally in session.

Dolt.45 is definitely dumb enough to do this. Definitely. And, if he does, Mueller would definitely be in a position to take him to court over it. In a court of law, vague references to good reason don't cut it. There have to be real reasons presented in evidence, and there aren't any that would hold water. However, the collateral damage to the nation (to all of us, in other words) from this process would be horrendous. And not least would be having Giuliani or Cruz as Attorney General for eighteen months. The mind simply boggles. It certainly would make the 2018 elections the most important in history. But, with all the tin foil around, that may even be scarier!

RESIST AND PERSIST !!!

With Drumpf’s obsession with Muëller and the Russia investigation, reasonable people would draw the conclusion that Drumpf is as guilty as sin of colluding with Russia in some form or way, or guilty of some other crime (financial ?).  There can be no other explanation in my mind.  Is there evidence to support this conclusion that would stand up in a court of law?  That is for Muëller to uncover and organise.

At the Boy Scout Jamboree, Drumpf did his usual “I’m so good!” speech which was not the place.  He even talked about loyalty, his brand of loyalty.  He wants loyalty to  Drumpf not the nation which is, in my mind, contrary to all the oaths that his appointees take — loyalty to the US and upholding the constitution.  Muëller demonstrates this loyalty to country and constitution, something that Drumpf has no knowledge about.  Muëller is the kind of man that the country needs.

Question:  If Drumpf fires Muëller, is there anything that can be done to continue the investigation and file charges, short of relying on a hapless Republican dominated Senate and House?  For example, could Muëller continue on his own?

I was reading earlier as I ate breakfast and a Drumpf supporter (you know, one of the vast masses of the “uneducated”) commented about draining the swamp.  “When is he going to do that?” the man asked.  As I thought about it, if Drumpf wants to drain the swamp, he must resign and leave politics . . . and take all his fat cat and familial connections with him.  The Drumpf régime is nothing but a cesspool of billionaires who are completely unqualified for their positions.

Resist, Persist and Remove!!!

The FBI would keep working on it, perhaps out of a field office, and Intelligence committee voices have said the firing by Trump would lead Congress to hire Mueller as their investigator...and I do believe in that threat. Nothing to stop that happening during a recess.

💙💚💜Noted... It seems no one is safe working for this President, if someone displeases him he gets rid of them. Glad it's not France a few centuries ago or Trump would be beheading anyone who displeased him. But he wants to be careful or he could find himself beheaded.

One of the troubles of all these checks and balances a functioning government has in place is that they’re full of amendments to cover all those “in case of” moments, there to make sure a government keeps on functioning in emergency situations, but never tried out. Lately, a lot of these emergency clauses have been scrutinized by both the GOP and the Drumpf administration and turned into loopholes for them to stay in power and get their way. And, oh irony, they have this loophole fresh in mind because in 2016 Mitch McConnell kept the Senate technically in session so that Barack Obama couldn’t make a recess appointment of Garland to the Supreme Court after Scalia died last year.

There are a lot of questions surrounding this:

1. The DC Report article is an Op-Ed, not a report on signals coming out of the White House – for now – but the possibility apparently has occurred to many insiders, Lawrence O’Donnell being one of them. So the White House is aware of this now too.

2. For this to work, Sessions needs to resign during the recess. No one seems to know if he will leave the Justice Department on his own accord, but I think Drumpf firing him could prevent Drumpf from calling on that third clause in Article II, Section 2 as it would be an “emergency” he had created himself. Even if Drumpf could use it, firing Sessions to recess-appoint someone else who’ll then fire Mueller for him would be too much to swallow for a number of Republicans in Congress.

3. Would Drumpf be foolish enough to make use of this loophole to get rid of Mueller and thereby make his ties to Russia even more suspect? He’d antagonize a lot of Republican Senators by going behind their vacationing backs and he’d put McConnell in an impossible position and make this a game with only losers. If he does, it would spell the end of Drumpf Reich the Republicans have been supporting.

4. When have considerations like the one above kept Drumpf from doing his worst?

That hot summer has only just started.

Lona, you always impress me with your knowledge - I wish more Americans had half your perception.
Schiff said they were trying to work on this as everyone knows what is on trump's stupid mind. It seems political suicide for trump to fire Sessions and then Mueller but the man is hardly sane so who knows. Many already planning protests should that happen

These names have been floated to become the new AG of USA. These are the names that I have either read or heard in the past few days.
Chris Christie of New Jersey.
Ted Cruz of Texas.
Rudy Giuliani of New York.
Kris Kobach of Kansas.
Pam Bondi of Florida.
Trey Gowdy of South Carolina.
Maybe there will be a new "surprise" name nomination or an outright straight replacement of Sessions when the timing is right. Yup, gotta keep your panties in a tight twist. lol.

This man Needs TO BE 'OUSTED' he had help from the "March of Dimes" when he was a small child.
He had came down with Polio and would have never walked again. I sure do remember the "March of Dime" everyone had change in their pocket and would drop it into the box! "The March Of Dimes was founded By Theodore Roosevelt in 1938 and isn't Government funded. It is a Non-Profit organization. It was created to improve health of mother's and babies by preventing birth defects, premature births and infant mortality.
He is so UNGRATEFUL he doesn't think of who is Representing or looking out for anybody but Himself like TRUMPY!!!
Keep behind Elizabeth Warren, Bernie and many other's all wanting Universal Single Payer for all like other countriies have.
But with the TRUMPCARE The Repubs would not even talk to the Dems about anything.
What the BIG Secret and what has McConnell offered the ones' to Vote for it????
We do have to keep a big eye on this!
NO SKINNY BILL NO TRUMPCARE
keep calling and E-Mailing everyone needs coverage for Insurance.
RESIST PERSIST
Thank you TomCat
