This "special counsel" thing has got to be killing Trump, given that he was in the process of picking a new FBI director.  I imagine he thought he'd get to pick someone more "loyal", or who might even pledge their loyalty in the job interview, and have them put a damper on the FBI.

The whole point of a special counsel is to operate independently, totally outside the control of the white house.  Sad!

Trump fought the hardest uphill battle that anyone running for President has ever had to fight.  Against all odds, he inspired millions of Americans to support him.  I am proud to be one of these.

It now appears that as hard as it was, campaigning and getting elected may have been the easy part!   Now President Trump is going to have to just keep on truckin on behalf of the American people.  Those who oppose him will never stop trying to destroy him and everything he is attempting to accomplish.  Unfortunately, this includes some Republicans who are so deeply entrenched in maintaining the status quo, that Trump is their mortal enemy, even if he is a Republican himself.

I am confident that President Trump can and will do everything he can to deliver on what he has promised.  All the Democrats, including the media and some Republicans will try to stop him every step of the way.  It will be the American people who will ultimately rally around this populist President as they get sick and tired of the members of the elite Oligarchy and their sycophants in the media who are responsible for all that is wrong with our government!

As far as the Special Prosecutor goes, if Trump has committed no crime, then the only harm that can come to him is the constant mantra from the left, "The President is under Investigation".  So what's new!  Grin


(as Mueller casts his net, he may even catch some Democrats who have committed crimes)

Indeed... Trump succeeded despite being a privileged billionaire white male.    He persevered in the face of Russian hacking leading to the use of Wikileaks as an agent for a hostile government to meddle with our election, voter suppression in North Carolina and Wisconsin and FBI Director Comey’s willful and intentional release of documents suggesting criminal wrongdoing a week before the presidential election .. .

Yep.. Trump had it hard.

Some people won't he happy until they hear that Mueller has ordered the construction of a guillotine on the White House lawn. I will not be one of those people because I believe that it would be far better to borrow one from the French than to build one and then have it sitting around rusting.

IF not needed for Trump keep it around.  As we have b o and all of his administrative team along with Hillary and her people.

This thread seems like as good a place as any to put this...

Quote:
Retired Gen. Michael Flynn will not cooperate with the Senate intelligence committee's subpoena request for documents regarding the former national security adviser's interactions with Russian officials.

"Gen. Flynn's lawyers said he would not honor the subpoena, and that's not a surprise to the committee, but we'll figure out on Gen. Flynn what the next step, if any, is," committee chairman Richard Burr, a North Carolina Republican, told reporters Thursday morning.

The committee, which is conducting an investigation of Russian interference in the election separate from the Justice Department, issued the subpoena last Wednesday...

Possible next steps: "Flynn reportedly refuses to honor Senate Intel subpoena. Next step either immunity, if 5th A privilege, or contempt." - Alex Whiting

Even when proven the DOJ did not do a thing.

Mr. Comey said, there had to be evidence that Mrs. Clinton intentionally transmitted or willfully mishandled classified information. The F.B.I. found neither, and as a result, he said, “our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”


Can you say Trump did not intentionally try to obstruct an investigation?

You can't blame any of this on the media or the democrats.  All of Trump's problems fall in the lap of Trump.  When will you wingnuts take responsibility for you actions.
