What could Mike Flynn reveal to Bob Mueller?

Jill Wine-Banks, who helped prosecute the Watergate scandal, describes how special counsel Bob Mueller might be seeking to use Pres. Trump's associates in order to go after so-called "bigger fish" within Trump's inner circle or even Trump himself.

You and I are too young to remember but we read history that Americans could be hung for supporting Communism. Fast forward to 2015 when Trump announced his candidacy, since that time, in the eyes of GOP trump supporters, the following are totally acceptable.

Racism

Misogomy
Pedophilia
Name calling

Physical violence at ralleys

https://www.politico.com/story/2017/11/27/how-jerome-powell-can-save-the-fed-from-trump-190531

Since Trump’s election a year ago, the Fed has grappled with the possibility that the president could publicly criticize the central bank, plunging it into an uncomfortable political spotlight.

“The Fed needs a good reputation, and its credibility matters,” said Sarah Binder, a political science professor at George Washington University.

“If you have criticism coming in from Trump and coming in from Congress, … there will always be questions about whether the Fed will succumb in any type of way or be diverted from its policy prescriptions,” she added. “That makes it harder for monetary policy to work.”

Certainly, the central bank’s best defense against attacks is to keep the economy on an even keel. But if conditions turn sour over the next few years — a real possibility given that the current expansion is already the third-longest in U.S. history — the Fed would be an easy target. And the president hasn’t shied away from criticizing even his own appointees, as Attorney General Jeff Sessions and others have discovered.

Trump criticizes everyone but two people: Michael Flynn and Putin. I think they both have something on him

Bully in Chief: Donald Trump proves it again with his 'Pocahontas' attack
Chris Cillizza

Analysis by Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor-at-large

t's not an exaggeration to say that Donald Trump insulted his way to the White House.

His run to the Republican nomination was defined by his bullying of rivals -- from "Low Energy" Jeb Bush to "Lyin' " Ted Cruz. Trump spent the general election doing much of the same with "Crooked" Hillary Clinton, insisting that she lacked the stamina and brainpower to be president.

Voters -- or enough of them in the right states -- saw Trump's name-calling and insults as toughness. Or a rejection of politics as usual. Or just plain funny.

He won. And, despite pledges to be so presidential we would all be bored, Trump has turned from an insult-driven candidate to an insult-driven president.

Exactly, thus reason he's attempting to distract from the inevitable, his surrogates being charged and Trump himself charged and impeached,before he attempt to pardon his buddies.

Lyin' Donald: 101 Of Trump's Greatest Lies

Donald Trump has repeatedly labeled his political opponents liars. He dubbed Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) Lyin' Ted when it became clear that Cruz was a serious rival for his nomination; he called Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) an "even bigger liar" than Cruz. He dubbed Dr. Ben Carson a "pathological liar" and said former Florida Governor Jeb Bush's lies were almost as bad as Cruz's. Trump has termed virtually every mildly adversarial media member a liar, too.

But there's only one truly massive liar in this race: Donald Trump. When Politico attempted to measure how many lies Trump told over the course of 4.6 hours of speeches, they found that he lied, on average, once every five minutes. When Huffington Post catalogued his lies over the course of just one town hall event, they came up with 71 lies.

Trump Brings Back ‘Pocahontas’ Slur Of Elizabeth Warren At Event For Native American Veterans

Warren said it’s “deeply unfortunate” the president couldn’t get through the event without “having to throw out a racial slur.”
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/native-americans-respond-to-trumps-pocahontas-comment/

The National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) was quick to condemn Mr. Trump for using a slur against Warren that overshadowed the intent of the ceremony.

"We regret that the President's use of the name Pocahontas as a slur to insult a political adversary is overshadowing the true purpose of today's White House ceremony," stated NCAI President Jefferson Keel, a decorated U.S. Army officer and Vietnam War combat veteran. "Today was about recognizing the remarkable courage and invaluable contributions of our Native code talkers. That's who we honor today and everyday – the three code talkers present at the White House representing the 10 other elderly living code talkers who were unable to join them, and the hundreds of other code talkersfrom the Cherokee, Choctaw, Comanche, Lakota, Meskwaki, Mohawk, Navajo, Tlingit, and other tribes who served during World Wars I and II."

NCAI referred to a release issued at another time when Mr. Trump used "Pocahontas" as an epithet against Warren. In that statement, the group pointed out that Pocahontas and her family, part of the Pamunkey Indian tribe in Virginia, played a valued role in American history, having signed a treaty with the British in the 17th century. They were only recently officially recognized as a tribe by the U.S. government, though.

"The name of Pocahontas should not be used as a slur, and it is inappropriate for anyone to use her name in a disparaging manner," the group said in May.
