The TomR in me suspects that Trump is actually looking forward to an impeachment trial in the Senate. That's why he's been provoking Pelosi so viciously. She cannot afford to back down at this point without seriously alienating the Dem base. The stars are aligning nicely for a yuge reality show in the Senate.

henry

Mac, I feel that temptation. Then I list Senators we can trust:

1. ????

I get stuck here every time.

Narciso

Mattis seems to have hired a liberal speechwriter in snodgrass who was all about keeping obama era priorities.


Riddle me this, how does delaying some weapons delivery an impeachable offense, and not providing armamemts for three years not.

jimmyk

For show? Predicate to “I’m being repressed” once indictments happen in two weeks eons.

No one involved in the impeachment (House Ds) will be indicted or otherwise obstructed. But the Ds will say the indictments are retaliation, politically motivated, etc.

jimmyk, I know I saw a discussion about the hack judge's ruling; I just don't remember when and where. I think the conclusion was that it would be reversed on appeal but that an expedited ruling would be necessary.

macthenaif

Pelosi is betting that Mitch and Lindsay will quickly toss out the House impeachment product. She doesn't yet grasp the danger of the Barr/Durham prosecutions feeding into an extended Senate trial.

Tom R

Mac @ 5:36

A lot of evidence Trump could present in his defense in a Senate trial is the same that Durham would use in any trials he may have against the Obama criminal cabal.

If the ultimate goal is draining the Swamp and defeating the Deep State, it’s probably better for Trump to have that evidence provided to the public via a Senate trial than a Durham trial.

I don’t think Trump is worried about impeachment at all. I consider most of his comments to be of the Brer Rabbit variety begging not to be thrown into the briarpatch. He is triggering low-IQ leftwingers into believing he is scared of getting impeached.

macthenaif

Trump is willing to go for broke.

Jack is Back!

Trump mistakes:

Tillerson
Kelley
Scaramucci
McMaster
Sessions
Bolton

I could go on but the fact is he had bad political advice and I think McValveny has change the course of those decisions.

In my corporate days our senior people made many stupid appointments which we learned to survive. I think Trump is evolving into his executive role and no more personnel mistakes. These mistakes will not effect him in the long run.

Why Bolton? Because he always been a TV interview hound and a little over the top for defense issues. Never liked him even in his hound dog role for W after the 2000 ballot count in Florida.

henry

Everything is due to Trump’s temper tantrums. Cue angry dictator narrative #666

@CNBC

Trump reportedly told Mattis to "screw Amazon" out of $10 billion Pentagon cloud contract

Marlene

Good afternoon! Speaking of Senators we can trust (ha) Susan Collins didn't sign Lindsey's resolution. I guess she thinks Mainers are too stupid to read the Constitution. Well,I shouldn't care now,I will be voting in Florida.
We heard some gossip over the summer that Republicans in ME-2 are very upset with her.
Trump won ME-2. The Congressman is a newbie Democrat who has no voice in Pelosi's sh*t show. Poor guy.

Jack is Back!

Oh, shit. Forgot to add Mattis to my list. What a fucking dissapointment. Another guy with a superman rep who turned out to be another Obamaite.

macthenaif

Do you think it a coincidence that Lindsey lined up all but three Republican Senators to condemn Pelosi's impeachment process mere hours before the NYT broke the story on Durham's investigation morphing to criminal?

And I seem to recall that Lindsey met with Barr a few weeks back to plan the roll-out of the IG's FISA report.

Things that make you go HMMMM.

Mattis would have to be still SecDef to make that call, Harwood, CNBC's Political Reporter and ValJar Stenographer.

Lead them directly into Temptation.

Still looking for a motto....It'll come to me.

macthenaif

The centerpiece of Trump's 2020 reelection strategy could be a Senate impeachment trial, with saturation media coverage at zero expense to his yuge campaign war-chest.

Exactly what the media have sworn to avoid.

James D.

The GOP really doesn't want to do this. As it is they only survive as a party because the alternative is somewhat worse,

I don’t think they believe that. I think a lot of them still really and truly believe that if they just get rid of Trump, we’ll all shut up and fall in line and everything will be just like it was before, when they could nominate tomato cans and make empty promises and rake in that sweet, sweet Chamber of Commerce cash and never have to actually accomplish anything or,be accountable to anybody.

MissMarple2

James D.,

If they believe that they have the IQ of turnips.

They've lost the evangelicals, who have seen that President Trump DOES WHAT HE SAYS, as in defending religious freedom and moving the embassy to Jerusalem.

He's gaining the support of the African-Americans, particularly the men.

He's won over the working class.

The amount of money he's raised and the numbers who show up at his rallies indicate huge popular support.

He has kept his promises.

If they think we are wiling to go back to a Romney, they are complete morons.

henry

If they believe that they have the IQ of turnips.

There are days I wish their IQs were that high.

LSU has come alive to demonstrate their No.2 ranking. War Eagle tiring out being on the D so long.

They hated Reagan but those were different times; so they just waited him out and cranked up the tomato can production line. And we fell in line like gullible fools, winning some nail biters and losing some while wondering "why don't they do what got them landslide victories?" Then the light went on.

I'm not going back to supporting tomato cans. You guys can do what you want but my path is clear.

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

There surely are a group of low info Repubs that would stand with Mitt?
But many of us would bolt. We've seen better times

I think we are coming to what the Wyoming ranchers call "nut cutting time". My universe of apolitical members part of the old company have suddenly woke up. Instead of dissencting bad designs or stupid heat rate calcs they have come alive in the politics we are living with.

Just another indicator of a what a ciivil war gets us. Those guys are also armed.,

Ron Johnson is on Levin on Fox right now. Repeat of his fabulous interview last week.

Sidney Powell was on Levin's radio show last night. I'll try to listen to it later.

Captain Hate

The SEC West is insanely tough.

clarice

Prosobiec was wrong--wrong Jim Baker flipped:Posobiec says, “In this filing, Sidney Powell is stating that it was James Baker, the General Counsel of the FBI, and that the Washington Post ran it at the urging of James Clapper.”

That is not true. He is confusing the two men. The filing clearly states that the man who allegedly leaked the transcript of Flynn’s calls is Director Col. James H. Baker at ONA (Office of Net Assessment in the Pentagon). He is the one who regularly has lunch with Washington Post reporter David Ignatius who published the story.

Captain Hate

Momto2 must be gripping hard.

Jack is Back!

Clarice is correct and Auburn has a chance.

Jack is Back!

Clarice is still correct and Auburrn doesn't have a chance.

Clarice;
Thank you for that clarification.
I hope you are still enjoying time with your son, granddaughter and daughter-in-law.
LSU for the win!

Hes not the actual ambassador, unlike a dozen years ago because he was never comfirmed, hes the dcm, george kent held that post until 2015, then he was the anti corruption coordinator.

Yes he held that job when between 1 and 5 billion dollars went missing.

@FDRLST

The evidence suggests John Brennan’s CIA and the intelligence community did much more than merely pass on details to the FBI. It suggests they fabricated events completely.

Buckeye,

I know -- I kept an eye on those games. I figured it would be worse in Ann Arbor simply because it was a later game.

Obviously that’s out now, but after last night and tonight so far, Astros in 6 is looking pretty realistic.

Prediction: Rick Wilson is one of the ones with an indictment. He passed the 4chan piss fan fiction that became the dossier on to Brennan so he'll probably only get 20 years instead of the firing squad.
