https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-impeachment-odds-rise-highest-203100244.html

The chances of President Donald Trump facing an impeachment trial after a month of very poor press coverage have increased and reached their highest point in all of 2018, according to oddsmakers.

Political and financial futures site PredictIt showed that the cost of one “Yes” share, which predicted Trump would face impeachment before the end of his first term, opened Sunday at 45 cents, a 12-cent difference compared with January 2.

Last month proved to be a significant one for Trump’s potential impeachment. The price of a “Yes” future on February 28 opened at 39 cents and closed at 38 cents. But by the middle and end of March, the price was firmly in the low 40s and even reached a high of 46 twice, on March 26 and 28.

A president with no strategy! What the hell is going to happen to this country? We need to impeach him soon!

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/poli...tegy/481630002/

WASHINGTON — President Trump has lobbed five Twitter attacks in a single week against Amazon, claiming the online retail giant pays "little or no" state and local taxes and costs U.S. taxpayers "many billions of dollars" through cheaper Postal Service shipping rates.

Trump's Twitter threats against the company — viewed in some quarters as a proxy battle in his war against The Washington Post, owned by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos —likely helped drive Amazon's stock down this week.

But Amazon and Bezos have largely ignored Trump's Twitter storm, demonstrating what some crisis communications experts say has been a key lesson for corporate America about Trump’s presidency: His social media screeds alone may not have much bite or lasting impact on a company’s share value.

"Most CEOs realize that this president, who is known to have no strategy, will move on to the next issue, so why elongate the pain" by engaging in a social media battle with him, said Richard Levick, chairman and CEO of LEVICK, a Washington-based crisis communications firm.

"A plan is only as good as those who see it through."

This idiot sitting in the White House tweets a plan at 11AM and before 1PM that plan is scrapped due to a ill tempered bad day, how many new women comes out with accusation of sexual abuse, which one of his staff was arrested or accused of money laundering or unethical behavior.

I know right. Remember when he tried to hit the reset button, or when he told the Russians he would have more leeway after the election, or when he did nothing in retaliation to Russia invading another country. Oh wait that was Obama, never-mind. whistle

And Liberals everywhere agree. Must raise the age to 21 because liberals know that all people under that age are too stupid to have that responsibility.

Now explain why people over the age of 50 deem it appropriate to bully school age children and I'll show people that are not only stupid but very immature as well.

I'll go way beyond your own intellect and personal maturity level by not utilizing a political label but remind you that humanity comes in every array of size, color, intelligence, capabilities etc. Let's try this one on for size, what do we call an individual who is over 50 but acts elementary? Name one Liberal on this site as of today who utilizes tasteless cartoons and I'll define not a Republican but an adult who possess moral and ethical deficiencies. A sad commentary if your childish & insolent mannerisms reveals an older generation of misfits who condones bullying,racism, sexism, rape, abuse in the form of physical or mental,those children who commit these acts of violence may be mimicking you while the intelligent kids we witness speaking against gun violence are our responsible upcoming generation.

https://www.cnn.com/2018/04/04/opinions/robert-muellers-endgame-osler/index.html

If you want everyone to like you, don't become a prosecutor. The job ensures that, in almost every case, at least one person will be unhappy with you, regardless of your choices. The best prosecutors tend not to care too much about popularity. That's good because public outcry, the wishes of defendants, and political pressures don't always run in the same direction as justice.

In that sense, Robert Mueller, the special counsel overseeing the Russia investigation, appears to be a consummately good prosecutor. As his investigation has advanced, there have been few leaks and he avoids the media. When tidbits of information do emerge, he does nothing to address the questions raised.
Most recently, those tidbits included a report by the Washington Post that revealed two seemingly contradictory pieces of information: that Mueller's team is "continuing to investigate" President Donald Trump, but "does not consider him a criminal target at this point." How can both things be true?

The answer probably lies in the rules governing the special counsel. They tell us that Mueller is charged with preparing a confidential report to the attorney general "upon conclusion of the special counsel's investigation," and that the attorney general then is to prepare his own report to Congress. The special counsel rules were changed after Kenneth Starr's 1998 report on Bill Clinton, with the express purpose of avoiding the problems associated with that very public publication.
If Trump is not a criminal target, that does not necessarily mean that Mueller has insufficient evidence to charge Trump; rather, it may indicate that Mueller reads the Constitution to mean that impeachment rather than indictment is the appropriate remedy for any serious presidential malfeasance. He could be preparing a report that recommends impeachment even while he refrains from indictment -- and, thus, Trump could be under investigation while not a criminal target.
As special counsel, Mueller's role is defined and limited by federal regulations: the mundane-sounding 28 C.F.R. §600.3-8. Those rules give Mueller the powers of a United States attorney, meaning that he can direct a criminal investigation, seek charges from a grand jury, negotiate pleas, and prosecute cases through to sentencing. He has done exactly that in charging some Trump associates and Russian operatives.

Beyond that, 28 C.F.R. §600.8 makes a very specific demand of Mueller: that "at the conclusion of the special counsel's work, he or she shall provide the attorney general with a confidential report explaining the prosecution or declination decisions reached by the special counsel." In other words, there will be no blockbuster news conference. Rather, Mueller will finish his task by reporting privately to his boss (which, given the recusal of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, would be Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein).

Conceivably, such a report could include a recommendation of impeachment. Those same regulations tell us what happens next, too. Once Mueller reports to (in this case) the deputy attorney general, Rosenstein is then to report to the chair and ranking minority member of both the House and Senate Judiciary Committees, possibly while rejecting the special counsel's advice.
To a strategist like Mueller, timing is going to be very important. His "final report" needs to come at the end of his work, and that means completing his prosecution tasks. Therein lies the rub -- and the possibility of another option.
It seems quite possible that Mueller could end up indicting some of those in Trump's inner circle. Those charges might trigger one or both of two things: Mueller being fired, and some or all of these defendants receiving pardons. Both actions would be hugely controversial and would rattle the already-shaken faith of the American people in our political structures.
To finesse that situation, Mueller might try to seek indictments and file his final report at once. That isn't true to his mission, though, which includes prosecuting to conclusion the cases he brings -- meaning that he is unlikely to submit a "concluding" report recommending impeachment (or not) until all of the defendants are -- potentially -- sentenced.

There is another possibility, and it might be the most likely: Mueller might try to submit a confidential impeachment recommendation prior to concluding his work, in the form of a "notification of significant events."
The federal regulation, 28 C.F.R. §600.8, allows for that, noting that such a report needs to be "in conformity with the departmental guidelines with respect to urgent reports."
"Urgent reports" are just as exciting as you might expect, too -- they are required when there is a law enforcement emergency, when national media attention is anticipated, or where there are "major developments in significant investigations and litigation."
The finding of evidence supporting an impeachment recommendation certainly seems to fit this last description, and this route would allow Mueller to take the risky step of indicting the inner circle, making his recommendation, and going forward as long as he can.
No matter what Mueller chooses, in action or inaction, some will be upset. Mueller, the good prosecutor, knows this well. Hopefully, he just doesn't care.

Remember Trump's campaign promises to build a wall and Mexico will PAY for it? Well, Mr. bonehead was embarrassed by the fact that Mexico's president told him otherwise. As of today, we are sending more National Guards to the border than we sent to Puerto Rico during their hurricane devastation, this idiot will put people in harm's way to have the last say but will not lift to finger to those in actual eminent danger.

http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-r...in-deep-trouble

Conservative pollster Frank Luntz said on Sunday that he believes Republicans are in danger of losing both chambers of Congress in this year’s midterm elections.

“I think the Republicans are in deep trouble in the House and the Senate as well. If the election were held today, frankly, I think Republicans would lose both,” Luntz said on Fox News.

“If Donald Trump wants to keep a Republican Congress, he has to differentiate when he’s attacking Congress in general versus the Republicans in Congress. Differentiate when he’s attacking the press versus when he feels he’s not getting a fair shake,” he continued.

Luntz said that while the economy has done well, the president largely has not gotten credit for it. He suggested President Trump could draw more attention to his successes by tweeting less and focusing on the economy rather than attacking the press or other lawmakers.

Numerous polls in recent weeks have shown Democrats with a lead over Republicans on a generic midterm ballot. A Quinnipiac University poll released last month showed Democrats holding a 10-point advantage.

Republican leaders have warned of potential losses in the midterms.

Democrats need to flip 23 seats in order to take back the House.

In the Senate, Republicans hold a 51-49 edge, though several Democrats are up for reelection in states Trump won in 2016.

Trump Floats Possibility Of Firing Robert Mueller, Criticizes Jeff Sessions
“Why don’t I just fire Mueller?” Trump asked.

By Nick Visser

President Donald Trump has once again lambasted the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and chastised Attorney General Jeff Sessions for recusing himself from the probe.

Trump appeared to directly float the idea of firing special counsel Robert Mueller at the start of his military leadership meeting on Monday, calling the special counsel’s investigation a “disgrace” and defending his firing of former FBI Director James Comey as the “right thing” to do.

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/justice...ould-go-n864751

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders added a new level of uncertainty over the future of Robert Mueller when she seemed to suggest Tuesday that the president might have the power to fire the special counsel.

"I know a number of individuals in the legal community and including at the Department of Justice that he has the power to do so," she said, though it was not clear whether she might have meant that the president could direct the deputy attorney general to fire Mueller.

And firing the special counsel would not accomplish Trump's goal of putting an end to the Russia meddling investigation. The probe would simply revert to the FBI and the Justice Department, where prosecutors and federal agents would continue the kind of work they were doing before the special counsel was appointed.

Week 47: Mount Trump Fumes but Doesn’t Blow

But how long before the long-expected eruption takes out Mueller and Rosenstein?

By JACK SHAFER April 14, 2018

What deters Trump from some of these sackings, the Atlantic’s Natasha Bertrand explains, is the belief inside the White House that the acts might add to the obstruction of justice charges we expect to be filed against the president. Political reasons, it seems, have prevented Trump from firing Sessions: If he forced Sessions out, Capitol Hill might crack open and send a pyroclastic flow down Pennsylvania Avenue to bury the White House. Worse yet, the Senate might refuse to confirm his Sessions replacement, leaving him with less control of the Justice Department. CNN’s Joan Biskupic notes that a few Republicans have cautioned Trump about firing Mueller unless he wants to see articles of impeachment. Besides, Biskupic reports, FBI Director Christopher Wray would continue the Russia investigation—the FBI investigation of Russian meddling predated the Mueller appointment—and a new special counsel would be appointed.

That Trump’s zipper problem might end up wrecking his presidency before the Russia stuff ruins him is a real possibility. According to the New York Times, Trump’s advisers believe the Cohen investigation presents a greater danger to his presidency than the Russia investigation. Cohen apparently used a home equity credit line to score the Daniels hush money. If he lied in his application, he could face 30 years in jail, as POLITICO reports. Moreover, Cohen’s payments to Daniels could be prosecuted as an unreported and excessive in-kind contribution to the Trump campaign. If Trump directed Cohen to make those payments, he might have violated campaign finance law, too.

According to CNN, Cohen recorded calls with Keith Davidson, who represented both Daniels and McDougal at the time. (Davidson says it was without his knowledge.) The recordings could contain evidence that would incriminate Cohen and even implicate Trump.

If prosecutors have the goods on Cohen, might he strike a deal with Mueller and join the other “cooperators“—Michael Flynn, George Papadopoulos, Rick Gates, Alex van der Zwaan and Richard Pinedo? As Trump’s fixer and attack dog, Cohen knows everything about his boss. Imagine the tantrum that would follow Cohen’s flipping.

As the week came to a close, McClatchy reporters Peter Stone and Greg Gordon dropped another bomb on Cohen. According to the Steele Dossier, Cohen traveled to Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign to strategize “with a powerful Kremlin figure about Russian meddling in the U.S. election.”

Cohen has been adamant about the allegations, saying he’s never been to Prague or colluded, showing BuzzFeed his passport as evidence that it had never been stamped. Earlier this year, he filed a defamation suit against Fusion GPS, which commissioned the dossier, and against BuzzFeed, which first published it. But according to McClatchy, Mueller has evidence Cohen made a secret trip to the city in the late summer of 2016, entering via Germany, which means he wouldn’t have had to show a passport. “If Cohen met with Russians and hackers in Prague as described in the dossier, it would provide perhaps the most compelling evidence to date that the Russians and Trump campaign aides were collaborating,” McClatchy reports.

The similarities are too eerie. This fool (DJT) had the "script" written for him 45 years ago, knowing........I digress, the idiot doesn't read and possibly doesn't know the full details behind Nixon's impeachment but his actions serves well for his impeachment in the near future.
