Sean Hannity is going after Jimmy Kimmel for making fun of Melania Trump's accent. Which I agree 100%, he should not have done. But where was Hannity when awful things were said about Michelle Obama? About her appearance, and blatantly racist things too.

Fox and Friends actually said that President Obama should tell Jimmy Kimmel to leave Melania alone. Something to that effect. They find the most bizarre ways to involve and blame him.

I'll give her credit, she's always very professionally dressed on camera. She's got it down-simple, monochromatic, strand of pearls. I always notice what she's wearing, I never pay attention to anything she's saying...because it's gobbledygook bs.


There’s not enough soap in the world to clean that mouth of bullshit. I don’t know to fear her or feel sorry for her...

So.... (so far?)
Mueller says Trump does not have criminal charges against him.

Do you think he's still trying to find any?
Is he still looking but being extremely quiet about it since he"s looked at so many people and different aspects of trumpworld.

I think Mueller, from day one, has been doing his job. Probably doesn't like Trump, but that doesn't mean he is trying to find criminal charges against him if they're not there. He's trying to pursue what he has evidence against, and amass more evidence. Probably Trump's kids or Kush.

Trump is still a subject of the investigation, which means he's a person of interest and his actions are within the scope of what Mueller is investigating, and his conduct could potentially be criminal. Whereas the target of an investigation is someone who the prosecutor believes has committed a crime, is likely to be charged, and there is substantial evidence to prove guilt.

The fact that that Trump isn't a target at the moment likely means that Mueller doesn't think he has enough evidence against Trump, now, to convict him of a crime (i.e. there's currently no "slam dunk" case).

Another possibility is that Trump isn't a "target" simply because Mueller has no intention of charging Trump with a crime because he's concluded he legally can't do so (it's generally agreed, and is the position of DOJ, that you can't indict a sitting President).

On the other hand, for a variety of reasons I don't find persuasive the argument advanced in some quarters that Mueller isn't calling Trump a target simply to keep the President from firing him or trying to destroy evidence, or is attempting to "lure Trump into a false sense of security" in an effort to get him to speak under oath (the latter of which would possibly be unethical).

Again, Trump could certainly go from being a "subject" to a "target" at any time (these designations can be, ah, squishy), though for the moment this news would seem to undermine the breathless, and endless talk of smoking guns and open and shut cases. In any event, Trump isn't off the hook, and if I were his lawyer I'd still advise him against talking to the Special Counsel.

If Trump speaks under oath, we can add perjury to the series of slam dunks Mueller’s gonna drop on all of us.

Ka-pow!

Mueller should coordinate with the resistance so the indictments and perp walks happen weeks before the November elections, ensuring victory for the Democrats.

Well I don't see how Mueller can be in the Resistance without a Twitter account.

Oh, he's there. He has a secret account. You only get to follow him if you're part of the Official Resistance, though.

You’re fine. You still reserve the right to several lengthy scoldings and I-told-you-all-so posts when Trump isn’t publicly hung on the steps of the Capitol.

I was in a rush to post before my battery ran out (must recharge my portable power pack) that my comment was a bit unuanced

No, of course, I don't think Mueller is going to "find" criminal charges if it they are not there (as far as Trump goes).

Oh, yeaaah, I forgot about not being able to proceed with criminal charges (in general) agspainst a sitting President- thus hopes of impeachment instead.

Yes, it is true he still might go from "subject" to "target" as some point. We'll find out at some point. Still orange Donnie acts like he's hiding something (besides his taxes ).
