Well, Since You Asked Me: Russia Probe Lawyers Think Mueller Could Indict The IDIOT (Original Reporting By Darren Samuelson)

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.

Well, Since You Asked Me: How The GOP Rigs Elections (Ari Berman)

Key Take-Away:  At some point voters will realize that Republicans simply don’t have good ideas. d if they don’t have good ideas, they can’t enact sound policy. We are seeing this is real time with the current Congress. Republicans have spent so much time learning how to cheat and get over, that they lack the basic fundamentals to govern. And sooner or later, this gets noticed. We’re seeing this now. And for their sake, they better pray that Dems aren’t petty when they regain control of Congress and State Houses. But if I were them, I wouldn’t count on it.

Well, Since You Asked Me: Democrats Didn’t Cave On #TrumpShutdown (Ezra Klein)

Key Take-Away:  There is not one point Ezra makes I can take issue with. The Primary goal was funding of CHIP. That was accomplished. The Second Goal was keeping Immigration Reform in the news. That was accomplished. The Third Goal was protecting the flank of those 10 Senators up for Re-election in 2018 in states The IDIOT won. That was accomplished. The Fourth Goal was getting some assurances from Sen. Mitch McConnell of Regular Order on Immigration Reform. That was accomplished. The Final Goal was creating Triangulation amongst The Republican House, The Republican Senate and The Republican White House. That was accomplished. 

I understand I’m looking at this from a Center Left POV. But that’s my Worldview. I’m Pragmatic/Moderate. I also understand that Progressives, in General, will either hate this deal or be lukewarm to it. I understand. My comment would be that Elections Have Consequences. And very rarely does the Party not in control of power get its way. So stay engaged. Stay enraged. And keep holding folk accountable, even when they make choices you disagree with.

Well, Since You Asked Me: Rep. Patrick Meehan (R-PA 7th) Used Taxpayer Money To Settle Sexual Harassment Suit (Katie Rogers/Kenneth Vogel)

Key Take-Away:  This presents Democrats with a good pickup opportunity. I expect this seat to flip. The bigger issue is that members of Congress are being exposed on both sides of the aisles for their egregious conduct. More power to the women coming forward.
