Well, Since You Asked Me: Hope Hicks – Call Your Lawyer’s Office (Jo Becker/Mark Mazzetti/Matt Apuzzo/Maggie Haberman)

Key Take-Away:  Hope Hicks is going to prison. If the allegations as reported by The New York Times are accurate, and they appear to have multiple sources that can corroborate them, she’s not only complicit, she assisted in the destruction of evidence. And she can NOT claim Executive Privilige. Her actions speak to someone that is not only naive, but supremely stupid. I’d be shocked if she doesn’t try to cut a deal.  Mueller not only has witnesses, I’m fairly certain, he has tapes of her, emails and other documents.

Well, Since You Asked Me: Secret Memo Hints At A New Republican Target – Rod Rosenstein (Nicholas Fandos/Adam Goldman/Sharon LaFraniere)

Key Take-Aways:  We are now at the stage where folks are throwing whatever they can in the arena. It’s actually pretty remarkable to see the desperation and the lengths they are willing to go. Consequences be damned. I think we can all agree that regardless of what comes from this, there needs to be a thorough cleansing of Congress. Folks simply need to be fired as they aren’t fit to serve. And Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WS 1st), need to be top of the list. Their lack of Leadership during this period is beyond terrible.

Well, Since You Asked Me: Soul Of A Nation (Charles Blow)

Key Take-Away:  There is not much I disagree with Charles on and this column is no exception. He truly is one of the Shining Stars from this Shitshow. And if you’re not following him, you should.

Blow touches on something that every Person of Color knows to be true. If this mess or a hint of any of this mess had occurred while 44 was either contemplating, running or serving as POTUS, I have little doubt that he would have been removed from office. Possibly forcibly at that. 

The degrading that The IDIOT has inflicted on the Office and by extension the United States will take years to undo. Domestically and Internationally. I suspect that as soon as he’s removed, and a sensible Congress is elected, we’ll see some changes in who can run and what we must know about them, at a minimum.

In the meantime, we all sit back and wait on Mueller to do his job. And try without much success not to look too much at our watch.

Well, Since You Asked Me: The IDIOT Complicates Everything He Comes In Contact With (Julie Hirschfeld Davis/Maggie Haberman)

Key Take-Away:  Ouch! This article is a continuation of the piece from the day before with additional details. I will say it again, The IDIOT is in way over his head. This is complicated by his deteriorating mental capacity, which makes him ripe for the picking. This is a brutal piece.

We are seeing why some folks chose to go to work for him. They simply would not have this much involvement in crafting legislation in other Administration. Power corrupts. And power, unchecked, is deadly. It’s time we pull the plug on this shitshow.

Well, Since You Asked Me: The IDIOT Is Mired In A Familiar Crisis (Julie Hirschfeld Davis/Maggie Haberman)

Key Take-Away: The mental instability of The IDIOT is center stage in these negotiations. I come back to the central theme that John Kelly and Stephen Miller, along with Congressional leaders, are content with this situation. They have immensely more power than they would have in a normally functioning Administration. This is simply not normal and they represent Exhibit A-Z of folks using this situation for their personal benefit. It will be extremely interesting to see what happens as The IDIOT’s approval continues to fall.

The fact that this man is reliving his past and is filled with an unhealthy obsession with Barack Obama speaks volumes. I suspect that he’s in a very foul mood right now and will explode at some point over the next week. If I’m Mueller and Team, I might just assist those efforts along with some strategic story leaks or an arrest. Primarily because The IDIOT appears to be spiraling, and the folks that should be providing guidance and counsel are so focused on consolidating their power that they refuse to deal with the situation as it exists. This presents a ripe opportunity to create a wedge.
