Key Take-Aways: Mueller and Team have what they need to Indict on multiple charges. And they believe their case is very strong. I suspect that Indictments will also serve to show the severity of what Mueller and Team believes has occurred.
The fact that this is coming from two Attorney’s from someone that is cooperating means that they have first hand knowledge of what Mueller and Team is sitting on. I suspect that this is the Attorney’s representing Priebus, Bannon and McGhan.
Moreover, by filing the Indictments, it puts the onus on The IDIOT and Les Miserables to have the discussion in PUBLIC. Something they will NOT want to do as it keeps #Russiagate in the News. I also agree that the Indictments will occur in the coming weeks, as Mueller will want to avoid duplicating the missteps of Jim Comey and the 2016 Election.
The added benefit is it also forces the hands of This Congress to debate the matter with seriousness. I’d look to the Senate Intelligence Committee to come out in support of this move. I’d also look for Moderate Republicans and skittish Republicans to run away from The IDIOT in droves, effectively, making him Impeachable.
Key Take-Away: Renato lays out the case he believes Mueller has. And this is without all the facts that Mueller has. He’s simply using what’s in the public arena, and even that is quite damning. I’d also add that it’s obvious that Mueller felt compelled to move on this piece now to parry any additional attempts The IDIOT planned to make with respect to firing him. We also now have greater clarity into why allies of The IDIOT have been in a frenzy the last month or so. Should be a fun February.
Key Take-Away: This is what quality reporting looks like. Bravo Politico Reporters. John Kelly is a problem. It is quite clear that Republicans want the #TrumpShutdown to occur. It is also quite clear that The IDIOT is not respected. If you’re President, you don’t agree to Bipartisan Deals TWICE in one week and have them killed by your staff. Now you have your reason why John Kelly is still COS and hasn’t resigned. He and Stephen Miller along with Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WS 1st) are running the Government. Having an ineffective, clueless POTUS allows them to enact the policies they want. This is pretty much a Coup.
Key Take-Away: Over the next couple of weeks, we will spend countless hours pouring through The IDIOT and Les Miserables. At times, we are going to find ourselves shocked by what we read. Upset that we could have allowed such to occur. And Angry with those that knew/know better and their total disregard for anything that doesn’t benefit them personally. Those will all be normal and expected reactions.
Over the coming months, we will be left to figure out what next. And who should remain, who should leave. There will be plenty of finger-pointing, hand-waving, and exiting Stage Left. But, at the end of all of it, we must find a way to get back to a functioning Bi-Partisan Government. Made up for and by the People of this Nation.
I have no illusions that this will be an easy task. It won’t be. There’s too much at stake. And too many entities have been sucking at the Government teet too long to willingly let it go. So there will be some pain. No, there will be a LOT of pain. And maybe that’s what’s needed.
In some ways, I hate The IDIOT happened. In some ways, I’m glad The IDIOT happened. There is obviously rot at the foundation of this Nation that needs to be rooted out and stamped out. There are common sense provisions we now realize must be enacted or adhered to. We must demand that NEVER AGAIN will we find ourselves here. It’s going to take a lot of time and a lot of work. It will be our job to elect qualified leaders to do said work.
I have all the faith in the world that we are up to the challenge.
