    The news conference with Trump?!! Wow…
    So embarrassing… 🤦‍♀️
    I’m Canadian… I am mortified for my neighbours right now.

    Omg- it would be popcorn worth for the sheer ridiculousness of it were this not our reality. I’ve been watching the new Watergate documentary and the recordings of Nixon speaking of the press is chilling in the striking similarities to Trump’s comments. It’s almost verbatim.

  3. Steff says:

    I said out loud “is this real?” a few times during that press conference. Still can’t believe this is our reality.

    Well, I must say the late King in the North is looking mighty fine these days…

    Jeff Session has stepped down!

    • Jerusha says:

      More like booted out.

      • Steph says:

        Totally! He resigned “at the request of the President”.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Yes! I originally wrote “Jeff Sessions was fired”, then I saw a headline that said he “resigned”. So I edited my post…but then I saw yet another article that said he resigned at the request of the President. Which is totally not a resignation, it is a firing.

        It’s crazy how predictable Trump’s corruption is.

      • Kitten says:

        I just read on Twitter that Rosenstein is headed to the White House. There is speculation that he will be next, We need to pass legislation to protect Mueller NOW.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        It’s like that moment on the roller coaster where you have crested the tallest hill and start flying fast and furious towards the big event.

        Big things are going to start happening rapidly. Mueller had to know this would happen. I hope he has a strategy prepared!

    I live in Kentucky and I celebrated her loss too! It is bad when in this crazy state you are considered too extreme. Good riddance.

    Canadian here. With a Democrat congress, will Trump still be able to undermine the Mulleur investigation? I’m trying to understand the significance of Sessions resigning.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Trump will try, but it isn’t clear how successful he would be. The House has the power of investigation, so anything Trump tries to do to obstruct can be investigated by the Democratic House next year. The new acting AG said last year he would try to cut the budget of Mueller’s investigation, but it is unclear how much damage that could do to Mueller now, because the investigation seems to be nearing the end.

      I’ve read articles that say there were strategies used during Watergate that allowed the Judiciary Committee to get reports and grand jury information.

        I am glad some of the W-gate era folks (prosecutors, etc.) are still around. They know the games, because they saw them firsthand with a slightly smarter crook. This is the dumb mob boss/family version of it.

      • jwoolman says:

        A big problem will be if a Trumpy in the DoJ keeps Mueller’s report from seeing the light of day. They can decide to just send the report to the White House, not to Congress. Sounds insane, but that was the case for the full FBI reports on Kavanaugh. The last rushed and restricted job was permitted to be viewed in one hour time slots by Congressional people for a very brief time, maybe a day or so. It was 1000 pages long….

        It’s assumed that Rosenstein would at least send it to Congress, but if he’s out – who knows what will happen to it. I’m hoping the Democrats can get around that in January by having Mueller testify extensively to the appropriate committees, essentially giving the report orally. Maybe they can subpoena the report itself?

        I had hoped Sessions would insist on being fired rather than resigning, and I hope Rosenstein does not resign but forces Trump to fire him. Apparently that makes a difference in how the replacement is chosen and what Congress can do about it. We need to stall Trump as long as possible until the new Congress is seated in January.

        This whole thing is so ridiculous. Obviously the subjects (or likely by now, targets) of an investigation should not have the authority to shut it down. This should have been fixed decades ago after Nixon.

    • jwoolman says:

      Emily — The new Congress will be sworn in next year, in January 2019. Trump can try to do a lot of damage in the meantime. His main focus is trying to shut down the Mueller investigation.

      I hope people will keep congress officially open as they have in the past to stop Trump from tricks sneaking his choice in without confirmation during a recess. That seemed to involve just having a few people who stayed in town as needed. What are they doing right now?

      Of course, Trump was a little slow to realize that they were gone from Washington for the end of the campaign… He was trying to tell people he was going to get a new tax cut for middle-income people passed a week before the election…. Yeah, sure. Reporters tried to explain to him that Congress wasn’t in session, but Trump seemed rather confused about it all.

      • holly hobby says:

        He can try to shut it down but Twitter rumors say that Mueller already has filed sealed indictments in court. So even if Mueller is fired those cases are alive and well in the judiciary – no you cannot destroy court documents either.

  8. jwoolman says:

    I’ve suggested this before: we need to be ready to have a GoFundMe for the Mueller investigation.

    Apparently people are suggesting to Trump that one way to get rid of Mueller without firing him would be to starve him out by defunding him.

    My credit card is polished and ready to go.
