BREAKING: G7 will not be held at Dorale.

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump
....Therefore, based on both Media & Democrat Crazed and Irrational Hostility, we will no longer consider Trump National Doral, Miami, as the Host Site for the G-7 in 2020. We will begin the search for another site, including the possibility of Camp David, immediately. Thank you!

Should have been Trump's great and unmatched wisdom in the title.

Only Trump could suggest a media and Democratic conspiracy in not getting his way by trying to have an egomaniacal narcissistic product placement for the G7 summit (yes It's unethical too). It's probably a dump anyway, just like he said the WH is.

Quote:

One Republican, Rep. Francis Rooney (Fla.) — whose district Trump carried by 22 percentage points — did not rule out voting to impeach the president and compared the situation to the Watergate scandal that ended Richard Nixon’s presidency.

AD

“I’m still thinking about it, you know?” Rooney said of backing impeachment. “I’ve been real mindful of the fact that during Watergate, all the people I knew said, ‘Oh, they’re just abusing Nixon, and it’s a witch hunt.’ Turns out it wasn’t a witch hunt. It was really bad.”

i'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt that he wasn't actually flipping off female astronauts doing a space walk, but he looks like complete shit. concerningly unhealthy.

Not sure what to conclude here

Was Mueller incompetent in his investigation ?

Was he constrained by someone higher up ?

Both ?

I lean toward option one since Bill Barr wasn’t there during the majority of it....maybe Sessions locked down what he could do ?

Overall it leaves a feeling of something off.

I'm not a total pacifist - I believe in defending the people you care about; which could be a very large group as well. Totalitarianism must be countered. At the same time too many wars and military actions have happened.

While posting above song on one of my own mix tapes "Wonderland" by Big Country follows that song, which reminded me of their song
"Where the Rose Is Sown" - today dedicated to any American troops that still might be there, and to The Kurds who Trump betrayed.

I forget - what was Mueller's job at the time he was asked to do this - in gov't, or moved to the private sector.

I think more the latter - hidden constraint.

It seems like a wild leap to assume the reason behind this seeming oversight is Mueller’s incompetence. Let’s not forget that the conclusions of his investigation are pretty clear, and that a lack of consequences as a result is not because his investigation didn’t paint a clear enough picture, but because of political spin and a Republican Congress and senate that has demonstrated time and again that they lack the moral backbone to stand up to Trump.

I mean, had McGahn and Jr been interviewed, do you think the end result would have been any different?
