Key Take-Aways: You start seeing stories like this when one side is losing very badly. And it’s not Mueller’s Team. Folks in the White House are now at the stage where they will begin to leak stories that paint them in sympathetic lights. They all want a soft landing spot when this shitshow is over. So I’d look for more background pieces like this. The fact that the IDIOT can’t seem to understand that the DOJ doesn’t work for him, but for the American Public has caused him to commit numerous acts of Obstruction of Justice. Either he’s incapable of grasping this or doesn’t care. And having his people go out and make the argument that it’s not really Obstruction because he didn’t go through with the firing, is ridiculous. And they know this.
Key Take-Away: This is superb reporting by The Washington Post. They saw Politico’s piece and topped it. Adding some key corrections. It’s obvious that they spoke with John Kelly and had him refute that it was he that killed the deal and was all McConnell’s and Ryan’s doing. Ouch. This reporting also underscores that The IDIOT is simply not all there mentally. You simply can’t do business in good faith with someone like that. I suspect we’ll get some additional deets in the coming days. I would also look for any resolution to come from the Moderate wing of both Parties.
