        Yes, and Fox should send this jerk and his sidekick Gasparino back to CNBC since that’s where they both came from originally. I read a story that Trump doesn’t like Cavuto and won’t give him an interview and I think that’s when it started, I don’t blame President Trump one bit for not talking to this jerk.

      Absolutely. It’s nothing but a trap. Besides, he has zero authority over the President.

      The only authority over the President is Congress. He can even refuse a Supreme Court decision . Other Presidents have.

      A subpoena from Mueller he can hang on his wall. Meaningless. He could just fire Mueller.

      Just a guess, but I would venture to say, he will get one Senator to vote so he can perform recess appointments, then he will clear the decks.

      Newt is usually good for some piercing clarity. I have another idea. Trump needs to draw up his own questions for Mueller and demand answers. If we can’t or won’t fire him, least we can do.

        I don’t post much but this is one question that’s been gnawing at me a lot the last few days. Think I heard or read it somewhere that if President Trump sits down with Mueller he could also come in with his own questions of the SC.
        As Commander in Chief, The President of the United States and as Mueller’s boss, he should have a whole list of questions for ol Mueller. I would imagine anyways but I don’t know how that works

        No known harm.

        All it takes in one “disgruntled” or “paid off” or “opportunistic” employee that has access to the “logs” to leak/sell them and thus all those PW’s are out there for bad actors.

        Sometimes the results and ramifications are not immediately obvious.

        I’m not saying a lawsuit would have legs – but on the harm-done part – I feel there is a good chance of harm, even if what it is or its extent is not known at this time.

        (Not only ones twitter account, but all those folks that happen to use that same PW elsewhere – and have perhaps unknowingly left rabbit-tracks for bad actors to follow – and later steal identity or other..).

        Benifranlkin You are correct that “none of this would have happened” without Sessions recusal. The utter corruption thats been revealed over the past year would either not have happened or not been believed. Thank God Sessions stepped aside so “THIS” did come out. He let the rats expose themselves while the public had a chance to become sick of the Russia BS and outraged by what by is obviously a politically motivated witch hunt. Another AG, one you would term “real”, who insisted on remaining in “the drivers seat” would have rushed in, before the public had a chance to wake up and come on board, and begun prosecutions which most of the country at the time would have viewed as political retaliation by scary Trump. Again, thank God that Sessions was able to step back, accept abuse, remain quiet as a mouse in order to Drain the Swamp. God bless Sessions and forgive those chose to hate him rather than pray for him.

          So well said.

          Attorney General Sessions and a dwindling number of us understand something very crucial to the future of our country. Either the legal system works and will correct the attempted wrongs or the legal system is beyond repair and this country will fall.

          If the legal system in this country is only wounded, then it will right itself and should be allowed to do so. What we are doing right now is seeing the festering wounds and preparing the hot iron for lancing. It’s going to hurt, so put a bit of leather between your teeth and stop whining like a little snowflake.

          If the system is broken beyond repair, then there is another path, but it won’t be so convenient as anonymous gnashing of keyboards, and I think there are precious few who are willing to answer that call.

    Consistent with the succession order for the Department of Justice, Acting Deputy Attorney General and U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia Dana Boente shall act as and perform the functions of the Attorney General with respect to any matters from which I have recused myself to the extent they exist.”

    . . . and just what decisions has Dana Boente made with respect to the investigation of matters related to the campaigns for President of the United States? I don’t think I’ve heard Boente’s role in this discussed.

He personally knows and has sized up all the players in ths drama. Have you? If not, then I wish you would pray for POTUS and for the success of his team and engage in your states elections which IS your job rather than telling POTUS how to do his on the comment section of a political blog. My comments aren’t aimed at you personally but meant to express my concern that some opiners spend their time fantasizing about giving POTUS advice rather than actually sendinh him Congressional Representatives that will help him MAGA. Abandon fantasy world. The war is real. Really do something to help win it. Pray and get involved in the elections.

      From the Examiner

      . . . Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., would demand pro-forma sessions as a part of any recess adjournment motion.

      Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., did the same thing when he was the minority leader under Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and President Barack Obama.

      Even though I disagree with the tactic when used against PTrump, I must say “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.”

      The Turtle’s action, If I understand correctly, allowed PTrump to make the Gorsuch Supreme Court nomination . . . well worth it.

      And now it’s time for our side to pay the piper.

      Ted Cruz claims to support President Trump and is running for reelection in Texas. I believe it only takes one senator to block the unanimous resolution that the senate is not in recess when they leave town. He would be quite the hero if he would stand up and vote no, therefore allowing recess appointments to be made while the senate is not in session. If I’m correct, perhaps some phone calls and emails are in order.

      It’s a simple .jpg. I would have ‘just’ posted the pic, but I’m a newbie Treeper, and have no idea how pics are posted in these messages/posts.

      I will post the text from the graphic, however, as search engines like text, so here it is:
      ———-
      Michael Avenatti is the attorney for Stormy Daniels. His bio reads:

      “Michael worked at a political opposition research and media firm run by Rahm Emanuel who was Obama’s White House Chief of Staff and is presently the Mayor of Chicago. During his time there, Michael worked on over 150 Democrat campaigns in 42 states, including many gubernatorial and congressional campaigns including Joe Biden’s U.S. Senate Campaign.”

      Since it appears Michael Avenatti and pornstar Stormy Daniels are being paid by Obama’s group Organizing For Action, is that enough proof the Democratic Party is behind this?

        THAT article is favorable toward Avenatti, though it doesn’t contain updates of reduced awards; nor specify the cases which he lost.
