Question: if someone in the WH is indicted, do they lose their security clearance/get fired/business as ‘usual’?

If someone in the WH is indicted SOP would be a leave of absence that would suspend any clearance. But this is the Trump WH and no bets can be made.

Probably right, Murph.

PPO there is a large cast of characters….most known, but some not. The speculation here is all over the place. Some say that low hanging and low level fruit will get picked first; others say that Mueller would only be acting if he had a sense that someone was going to leave the country; and still others suggest that Mueller will want to make a big splash to shake up others and to secure his position from Trump interference.

In the Trump WH, if someone is indicted, they get a promotion.

PPO….here is a bit of Trump for you ala Halloween: President Donald Trump briefly met with children of the White House press corps on Friday as part of a Halloween celebration, and things got weird pretty quickly. The costumed kids were invited to the Oval Office before trick-or-treating in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. Trump, ever eager to criticize the press, seized the opportunity to make fun of their parents. “I cannot believe the media produced such beautiful children,” Trump said, according to a pool report of the event. “How the media did this, I don’t know.” Trump pointed at the pool and asked the kids, “Do you know who they are? They are the friendly media.” He comforted one young girl, who was clearly a little nervous and crying. And he maintained a playful banter with the kids and the media. “These are beautiful, wonderful children,” he said, turning to the kids. “Are you going to grow up and be like your parents? Mmm, don’t answer that. It can only get me in trouble. You have wonderful parents, right?”

Word seems to be that Mueller’s coming out soon with some big indictments.

Ad…watching it all closely…there is a large cast of characters….most known, but some not. The speculation here is all over the place. Some say that low hanging and low level fruit will get picked first; others say that Mueller would only be acting if he had a sense that someone was going to leave the country; and still others suggest that Mueller will want to make a big splash to shake up others and to secure his position from Trump interference.

Murph, Trump is so mentally ill to act that way with children. He didn’t raise his own kids. Clear personality disorder. The jerk is mentally ill.

Ad…clearer and clearer….and yet my neighbors worship the cesspool he walks on.

PPO..the 25th Amendment, even if it gives us Pence is our best way out. If we were a Parliamentary System, I suspect he would be gone already.

I’m hoping every member of the WH staff are feeling like the SS when Hitler went and will run in disguise to try to escape.

I think Mueller would be more likely to indict the low hanging fruit first, Manafort and Flynn.
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey Harleigh!

Murph – The Trump cult are proof of how dictators rise in countries. Like cult members, their allegiance to Trump and their fear and hatred towards others puts their minds in chains. They can’t see themselves as wrong for following a con man. They’re self image and understanding of the world and their victim hood is all wrapped up in their blind faith in Trump. They are lost to us and the majority, they need to be overcome and relegated back to the shadows…where they will hopefully let down and allow reason to creep back into their closed minds.

On another front, I was part of a group of 12 who met with the leadership staff of three of our GOP congress people re. health care. I was put in the slot of “community activist”, there were others representing Navigators, the state health system, doctors groups, hospitals, patient advocates……It was an honest and generally respectful discussion….making clear what a mess they are making of the health care system and how much worse it could get…..we met after the 90 minute meeting with the Congress folk and wrote up a summary of the points we made and sent them, and their employers, and the Speaker of the House, and the Governor here, and the Senators….a copy of it.

Well, put, Ad. Just like the Nazis in WWII. Of course, afterwards they were all ‘Good Germans’, weren’t they?

Ad…in agreement in principle…the problem with overcoming in states like mine is they are the majority (or so allied to it that taking the opposite tack is doomed from the start). When Hitler was elected Chancellor, the wealthy who supported him were asked by local leaders if this was wise and were told that “Mr. Hitler works for us. Let’s be clear on that.”

PPO….I do not think so….but we wanted to be sure that our words represented our meeting not theirs.

Murph – So where does that leave things? With the sabotage by Trump of the ACA and the “tax” bill and budget trying to slash Medicare and Medicaid…how can healthcare work especially for those who most need it in MO?
AdLib 7 days ago
AD…it won’t and it will be up to folks like myself to work at getting the message out that this is ALL the GOP’s fault.

PPO – Trump is an unofficial Nazi leader, he calls them “fine people” and supported their heinous actions in Charlottesville. Trump supporters are the equivalent of Hitler supporters, no atrocity would shake their support of him to be a tyrant.
AdLib 7 days ago
Harleigh…agreed and that is one of the reasons that HC big business is really unhappy right now as the messier it gets the more likely it is that the next steps will take us down the road you suggest here and away from the gravy train.

Ad…I have a neighbor, about three miles down the road who flies the Confederate Battle Flag, a Christian Conservative Flag, an American Fascist Flag, a U.S. Flag and a Missouri Flag in his yard which faces a major county road.

Murph – That’s the thing, the Repub Establishment supported and empowered Trump thinking they’d still own him and the GOP. It’s the story of the Gollum for them. For Trump core supporters, it’s the same emotional and blind support Hitler enjoyed. They are the enemy at this point, they stand against decency.
