You know, when it comes to the wildly successful Mueller Investigation, that has already resulted in a bunch of guilty pleas and indictments of critical members of the Trump Campaign team, most people hold the best case scenario to be Mueller coming up with the goods that will lead to an impeachment possibility.
Key word there, possibility.
No one thinks that Impeachment is inevitable. It’s just the best possible scenario for people who dislike Trump, right?
Well, there’s one guy out there that makes it seem like Impeachment is very possible as a result of the Mueller Investigation:
Of course, we have to do it in defending the president. We are defending — to a large extent, remember, Dana, we are defending here, it is for public opinion, because eventually the decision here is going to be impeach, not impeach.
– Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani on CNN State of the Union
Let’s take a moment to make a couple things very clear based on this quote:
- Giuliani is saying that eventually there will be a decision to impeach or not…and that they want to sway public opinion on that choice. This contrasts very starkly to what Trump should want here: NO FUCKING IMPEACHMENT CHOICE.
- Giuliani is a lawyer for Trump. Despite being inept at it and despite Trump in a few weeks likely firing Giuliani and then a few weeks later saying, “Rudy was never my lawyer, ok? Believe me, I would not have Rudy as my attorney. We brought him in to consult for a little bit, alright, but, he was never my attorney. Do you think my attorneys would say the ridiculous nonsense Rudy was saying? No of course not, believe me.”

On Sunday, President Donald Trump demanded an investigation into “spying” on his Presidential Campaign. On Wednesday morning, Donald Trump tweeted this bad boy:
So, there you have it folks, the “Criminal Deep State” just mere days after he primed this investigation based on nothing, our boy concluded, yes, guilty. The punishment for Democrats that are part of this “Criminal Deep State” is that they have to listen to Trump refer to them as criminals LONG after they are ultimately cleared of any wrong doing. Which, honestly, maybe some of them would prefer a Prison sentence?
Where do you begin with this?

Our lovely President has been mashing out tweets with alacrity the past couple of days. His topic: A government agency infiltrated his Campaign for President. Now, I am not sure why he is bragging about being investigated, but, I’ve given up on following the intricacies of his legal defense. Just wake me when the jury is impaneled.
Anyway, take a look:
Putting aside the very serious issue of why the hell Lou Dobbs is getting a shout out, our little buddy is upset.
A SPY in the Trump Campaign! What a horror!
Trump, well, he needs someone to step up and solve this for him. It’s not like Bob Mueller is just going to write a memo on it and reveal the source. So, hey, I am offering my services to step in and solve this mystery.
What are my qualifications? Oh, I don’t know, maybe reading a ton of Harlan Coben novels thank you very much. I’m a great detective, ok. Plus, we are trying to suss out a mole and I have seen every episode of 24.

Rudy Giuliani is continuing his bad month. He stepped onto the Hannity program last night and pouted about how Trump can not get a fair hearing.
“The president has a great desire to come forward and tell the truth if he gets a fair hearing,” Giuliani said. “Our job is to make sure that he gets a fair hearing from Mueller. Now, we’re not convinced that he will.”

To be clear, Trump has NOT been charged with any crimes right now, so Giuliani may have got himself confused again. So, the “fair” hearing would be a trial. You know, not something that Trump’s counsel should be out here openly rooting for, right? But, then again, Rudy also alleged that Trump could not get indicted or subpoenaed? So, clearly, he has moved on from the “I don’t know the facts” portion of his defense into the “let me try to confuse the public on what the law is” moment.
In other Giuliani news, the NY Daily News reported that the man and 2 of his staffers opened the door on his rickshaw and smashed a pedicab driver. Unfortunately, I have not seen video.
Rudy is getting paid purely in Fox News appearances. And, it still feels like a bit too much.
Sunday afternoon I made a move I thought was saavy, but, instantly had regrets about. I went over to the House Intelligence Committee release by the Democrats on Social Media Advertisements by our comrades the Soviets. I wanted to take a peek at their ads. Look, I am a big Fyodor Dostoevsky guy, so, I thought, maybe there is some wisdom that will be gleaned from these ads.
First warning sign that this was a bad idea…the file sizes. 1.6GB for a zip of ads from Quarter 4 of 2016. And, they were using all four quarters of multiple years. Nevertheless, I downloaded it for some reason. The first ad I looked at, very promising, if you’re into ads where you aren’t quite sure whether they are a parody of Texas or genuinely trying to appeal to Texas (and also if you’re a big fan of non-witty Hillary Clinton insults where the author really wants that woman to die).
Honestly, it’s just impressive to mix a Killery and a Hitlery into the same ad without getting the audience to roll their eyes. And, well, the audience likely rolled their eyes at this one. BUT…nonetheless, I figured, this ad would set the tone for a jaunt through a ton of PDF files that the House Intelligence Committee had prepared. There were hundreds just from October and November 2016.
And, they were largely a disappointment.

Just when you think, alright, maybe the White House will get rid of the knucklehead who made a comment about John McCain “dying anyway”, they send out the White House Budget Chief to defend the comment. The real issue? That the mocking moment got out.
“This was a private meeting inside the White House. It was a joke. It was a badly considered joke that she said fell flat,” Mulvaney, the director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, said during an appearance on Fox News.
But Mulvaney argued that the leak of the comment posed the greater issue: “The leak was designed to hurt that person. Also, it completely ignored the harm it would do to the McCain family, which is doubly inconsiderate.”
The White House is now in a position where they are defending something that was, at best, a joke done in poor taste. And, they are doing so mere weeks after everyone in the White House lost their damn mind at a comedian making jokes that did not rise to the level of joking about the death of someone currently battling cancer.

By now, everyone knows the “fake news” about how AT&T and a bunch of other companies shelled out too much money to Michael Cohen for “Essential” consulting regarding his boy Donald Trump. Clearly, since no business would pay 500k-1.2million for insight into Donald Trump, when they could just have a kid sit at his desk watching old Celebrity Apprentice episodes and bang out a memo, we know that something shady was going on here. A little something known as “bribery” and let’s be honest, a Trump bribery story is very much in the category of “who cares.”
I mean, bribery is the one thing we would all expect Trump to be good at.
But, a bribery store involving Ice Cube, Steve Bannon, Cube’s terrible basketball league, and the Qatari Government? I need that straight to my veins.
Here’s the Headline from the Daily Mail UK:
EXCLUSIVE: Steve Bannon was target of bribery plot by top Qatari who invested in Ice Cube’s basketball league to get to Trump’s strategist and boasted ‘Mike Flynn took our money’, rapper claims in court
