    Trump has submitted written answers to Mueller. He’s walking right in to a perjury trap.

    Mueller is dishonest. I’m sure he has persons on either side of each question and any answer Trump gives can be contradicted.

      People constantly give liberals credit for brains and strategies, neither of which they possess. All the left has is anger, flailing, panic, violence, spite, rage. Mueller is no exception.

      IMO, based upon what we know right now, there would be 2 perjury traps for POTUS in the Mueller investigation:

      1. Obstruction stuff (which I don’t think Trump’s team allowed in the questions).

      2. Questions around “Did Trump know about the Trump Tower meeting in advance” stuff.

      My guess is POTUS would answer #2 in the manner of “I don’t recall” or something like that, which would give him legal wiggle room.

      Of course, we all know Mueller wants to trap POTUS on perjury. But I think Trump’s legal team will help him avoid it.

      If POTUS gave himself wiggle room on the Trump Tower meeting issue, we’ll probably learn about it soon as leaks will come out along the lines of “Trump changes statements on Trump Tower meeting knowledge; now says he isn’t sure if he knew when before he said he did not know” and so forth.

        Trump’s legal team sucks; has a piss poor record. NO FIRST YEAR LAW STUDENT would allow their client to submit any answers, let alone WRITTEN answers, to a prosecutor who’s been after their client for TWO EFFING YEARS.

        Sometimes I really, really, REALLY wonder if Trump’s as smart as everyone gives him credit for.

        I mean, C’MON! Who the !**! submits ANY answers, let alone WRITTEN answers, to a scumbag prosecutor who allowed 4 innocent guys to stay in prison 30 years (Winter Hill case), publicly accused Steven Hatfill of sending the anthrax letters, and pulled so much other crap that a TX senator wrote an op-ed about the shit Mueller pulled.

    Final vote counts are in. Republican Mia Love (who Trump put down in post-election press conference) has lost in Utah. She has been defeated. Only remaining question now is if the final vote is outside the recount margin (0.25% I think). I believe that it IS outside the recount margin.

            I think actually, ironically the same thing is going on in BOTH parties, to wit an insistence on idiological purity, on the part of the base.

            The difference, is in how the party deals with such a push.Look who lost, on the Democrat side; MODERATE Dems. Look who WON; extremeists, even if they are bubbleheads, waiting to get inaugerated to Congress, lol.

            Even before the midterm, we saw the ‘leadership’ move in a major shift to far left, at the behest of their base. Personally, I think the old guard is terrified of the base.

            On the Republican side, we see the opposite. We deplorables, and our Champion VSGDJT, continue to get ignored or minimised, when it comes to ACTION, by R ‘leadership’ in Congress.

            No progress, and a lot of blocking on the MAGAagenda, and on exposing soft coup.
            On the latter,,I think its self interest; if it ‘all came out’, I believe that would include that several R’s were complicit in an ateempted coup,including McStain, Ryan and undoubtedly others.

            But, on attempts to block MAGA, it seems to me the midterms present a dillema for Republicans; from here on out, you need the embrace, to win re-election.

            Perhaps Bannon is correct; we are in a transition, from Right vs. Left (old) to National Populism vs.Socialist Populism (new)?

            So, the Dem party is struggling with a socialist populist takeover, while the Rep party is struggling with a nationalist populist takeover, and how the party leaderships are dealing with it, are opposite.

    In absolutely SHOCKING news:

    https://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/detroit/2018/11/20/female-genital-mutilation-michigan/1991712002/

    “In a major blow to the government, a federal judge in Detroit has declared America’s female genital mutilation law unconstitutional, thereby dismissing the key charges against two Michigan doctors and six others accused of subjecting at least nine minor girls to the cutting procedure in the nation’s first FGM case.

    The historic case involves minor girls from Michigan, Illinois and Minnesota, including some who cried, screamed and bled during the procedure and one who was given Valium ground in liquid Tylenol to keep her calm, court records show.

    The judge’s ruling also removed three mothers from the case, including two Minnesota women whom prosecutors said tricked their 7 -year-old daughters into thinking they were coming to Metro Detroit for a girls’ weekend, but instead had their genitals cut at a Livonia clinic as part of a religious procedure.

    U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman concluded that “as despicable as this practice may be,” Congress did not have the authority to pass the 22-year-old federal law that criminalizes female genital mutilation, and that it’s a matter for the state’s to regulate. FGM is banned worldwide and has been outlawed in more than 30- countries, though the U.S. statute had never been tested before this case.

    “As laudable as the prohibition of a particular type of abuse of girls may be … federalism concerns deprive Congress of the power to enact this statute,” Friedman wrote in his 28-page opinion, noting: “Congress overstepped its bounds by legislating to prohibit FGM … FGM is a ‘local criminal activity’ which, in keeping with longstanding tradition and our federal system of government, is for the states to regulate, not Congress.”

    I cannot even BEGIN to understand what this Judge is thinking. This is just OUTRAGEOUS!

    I am beyond disgusted by this Judge.

      I saw that and thought WTF, however, it may be a “good” decision. The Federal law apparently was based on the “Commerce Clause” and the judge said that’s an overreach. The “Commerce Clause” has been misused forever by the Federal Gov’t to usurp power from the States and the People. There are likely State Laws that should be used to send these animals to prison for decades. The Federal Violence Against Women Act was struck down for the same reason.

    Excerpts. Emphasis by me. Much more at link. Good information to know.
    —–
    In contemplating the causes which may disturb our Union, it occurs as matter of serious concern that any ground should have been furnished for characterizing parties by geographical discriminations, Northern and Southern, Atlantic and Western; whence designing men may endeavor to excite a belief that there is a real difference of local interests and views. One of the expedients of party to acquire influence within particular districts is to misrepresent the opinions and aims of other districts.

    All obstructions to the execution of the laws, all combinations and associations, under whatever plausible character, with the real design to direct, control, counteract, or awe the regular deliberation and action of the constituted authorities, are destructive of this fundamental principle, and of fatal tendency. They serve to organize faction, to give it an artificial and extraordinary force; to put, in the place of the delegated will of the nation the will of a party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority of the community; and, according to the alternate triumphs of different parties, to make the public administration the mirror of the ill-concerted and incongruous projects of faction, rather than the organ of consistent and wholesome plans digested by common counsels and modified by mutual interests.

    >>> However combinations or associations of the above description may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion. <<>> One method of assault may be to effect, in the forms of the Constitution, alterations which will impair the energy of the system, and thus to undermine what cannot be directly overthrown. <<<

    Note: The last sentence above is pertinent to Congress' limiting of 2nd Amd rights by banning certain firearms, enacting licensing schemes (SCOTUS, in hearing a case of Jehovah's Witnesses who were told they needed a permit to proselytize, ruled that rights ennunciated in the constitution can not be licensed. Poll Tax case, SCOTUS ruled constitutional rights can't be taxed), and other schemes that are end runs around 2nd Amd.

    Does anyone know why we have this NYT hit piece on the President today, wanting to go after the Clintons, etc?

    Was it a slow news day? Clueless in the Hudson Valley!

      Couple of thoughts on this.

      1. The sub-heading of the article that shows up on Twitter for the piece is something like “clearest example that Trump views DOJ as his political tool.” This makes me think that at least part of the goal of the article is to put pressure on Whitaker to not take action against Mueller. That is, the article tries to put POTUS and Whitaker on defense, and so if Whitaker did anything to hold back or stifle Mueller that would be more “political” action, etc. So, a leverage play by the NYT and their Deep State/Coup allies.

      2. Oftentimes, holidays are when politicians’ polls go up. Because they are out of the spotlight. This story dropped, I think, after POTUS got on the helicopter for Florida. So you drop a negative story he can’t easily respond to during the holiday break and you try to prevent any poll bounce from happening.

      3. The goal of the Resist group is to constantly hold Trump down. To not let him gain momentum. This is part of the reason for Mueller, and the Dem House will continue the task with numerous frivolous investigations. The media will happily play their part. So this DOJ story is kind of a “bridge” between the election and waiting for the Dem House to get in place. So is the Ivanka emails story.

      The Resist gang does not want Trump to have any ability to get beyond their control to handle, so they want to continually try to keep him in a defensive posture. But, they’re running out of legitimate “scandals” to try to play up. This looks like the fodder for the moment, and it also (like Mueller) serves a “shield” purpose for Team Coup by trying to put onto Trump what they actually did themselves (weaponize the DOJ).

        Like Reagan, Trump is naturally charming and charismatic and people want to root for him. So if you do not continually bash him, his polls will tend to run at 50%+. His opponents have been able to hold him under that for his entire term, mostly, and they’re intent to continue to do that as long as they can with these attacks.

        One final thing — the paid trolls are out in force right now, around the internet. So there definitely seems to be a coordinated “push” going on right now against POTUS. Not sure why that is or would be, but it seems to be happening. I guess is could just be normal Team David Brock activity, but it seems a bit elevated at the moment.

        So, now we watch to see if Whitaker will sit on his position or not.

          Yeah. Right now, I think the goal is just get him past the frivolous lawsuits and investigations the Dems want. Which should be doable, IMO.

          One step at a time. The Dems/Media have to go crazy about the DOJ and Whitaker. They understand the danger now, as Mueller can be wrapped-up and the lens turn on them, instead.

    Why is Trump answering Mueller’s questions? There is no law authorizing the appointment of a special counsel.

    Bad news on the China front. Navarro is reported as not being included in the upcoming Trump-Xi talks. I hope Trump doesn’t listen to his globalist wing.
