Hey Glenn….hey ad….just watching Lawrence O’Donnell Panel….it looks like the draft of trump letter giving reasons for firing comey stated that the russian investigation was key to the decision. That draft was set aside but it shows the mindset of all involved with it which includes Pence. He is now in legal and political jeopardy.

Digital spinich dip!

Murph – It sure sounds like a smoking gun for obstruction of justice.
AdLib an hour ago
Murph–Who is in legal and political jeopardy? Pence or trump? Either one, what a shame (she said tongue in cheek).

Ad–I love digital spinach dip. Far fewer calories than anything else!
glenn

an hour ago
Pence needs to be outed as part of the obstruction of justice cabal.
AdLib an hour ago
glenn – And you can use computer chips to dip!
AdLib an hour ago
Glenn. Trump clearly was from the start but Pence has pretended he knew nothing (like Sgt. Schultz on Hogan’s Heroes) and he knew everything.

Murph and Ad–I’m coming to the conclusion that I don’t want to see trump impeached. I want to see him charged criminally and locked up. He will still be a martyr to his cult followers, but I believe that if he were to be impeached, he wouldn’t go quietly. The better way to get rid of him is to charge him with a crime, IMO.

What really encouraged me this week was Mueller’s working with Schneiderman. Leaves Trump’s pardon plan impotent.
AdLib an hour ago
Ad–good one on the computer chips! Can we follow it up with “cookies”?
glenn

an hour ago
Murph – Smoking bazooka?
AdLib an hour ago
Ad–yeah, I like Mueller working with Schneiderman. The man who sits in the oval office isn’t quite as smart as he thinks he is.
glenn

an hour ago
Murph – Ryan is despised even more than Trump by the public so if he stepped in, he’d never win re-election.
AdLib an hour ago
Ad–ryan shouldn’t win re-election, should he become president. He is a wolf wrapped in what he thinks is a “pretty face”.
glenn

an hour ago
glenn – To criminally prosecute Trump, he needs to be remooved from office first. Not clear that a president can be convicted of a crime and imprisoned while in office, only impeached.
AdLib an hour ago
Ad…I agree…Ryan will try to do the job which will make him malleable but he will still fail (as he is doing as Speaker)

glenn – Nice one!
AdLib an hour ago
Ad–but the criminal charges have to be there for him to be impeached, right?
glenn

an hour ago
Murph – I think Ryan is losing his support to stay in as Speaker. As a Pres, he’d self-destruct, he has no spine or authority.
AdLib an hour ago
Hey PPO–how goes it?
glenn

an hour ago
Hi all~!
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
glenn – Yep, high crime or misdemeanor or abuse of the office.
AdLib an hour ago
Hey PPO!
AdLib an hour ago
Ad–do you think there’s going to be a fight in the House regarding ryan’s speakership?
glenn

an hour ago
hey ad, glenn. Just catching up
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
glenn – I’m hoping Dems take back the House and the Speaker will be a Dem in the next Congress!
AdLib an hour ago
Ad, glenn, I’m hearing very little down here aboout how Dems are going in leadups

Ad–IMO, trump abused his office when he pardoned arapaio. However, the repubs in Congress have to grow a spine to impeach trump over that. They may be saving their “ammo” for what Mueller comes up with. Then they can just add the abuse of power. Speaking of arapaio’s pardon, can the federal judge “vacate” the pardon?
glenn

an hour ago
I really can’t wait for Mueller to lay down the indictments! And je’s working with the IRS investigators now? They win 70% of the prosecutions they undertake. This will be epic!
AdLib an hour ago
PPO – Lots of blather about Dems not having a leader or issues to run on but 2018 is going to be like all other midterm elections, a referendum on the president and party in power. And Repubs can only lose.
AdLib an hour ago
Ad–Not sure the Dems can take back the House. I think they have more of a chance to take the Senate. But my question pertained to what happens when Congress reconvenes next week. If ryan can’t get tax reform passed in the House, do you think his speakership will be in jeopardy before the 2018 elections?

Ad

Agreed glenn, Trump’s pardon of Arpaio can be a cause for impeachment. But there are so many charges, if Dems win the House, no doubt they’ll pursue them!
AdLib an hour ago
glenn – I don’t think Ryan would be replaced before the 2018 election. In the GOP, you just keep failing upward.
