Trump Indicts Himself

Just how stupid can Donald J. Trump be?

The firing of James Comey as FBI Director should guarantee the appointment of a special prosecutor to look into the entire Russia-Trump nexus.

The firing certainly cements the impression that Trump has much to hide and is desperate to hide it. Even the Republican stone wall in Congress is showing pressure cracks.

The "company line" that Comey was fired because of his bungling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation just doesn't wash, not even on laundry Tuesday. It's laughable, and everybody is gleefully showing those multiple clips of Trump praising Comey for his "guts," getting in front of cameras last summer to excoriate Clinton.

We heard the news late yesterday afternoon, and a wise old political hand immediately said, "Well, that goose is cooked."

Trump lit the fire.

Unfortunately, the law authorizing ‘special prosecutor’ or an ‘independent counsel’ expired. Here is a good NEW York Times article on the issue: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/09/us/politics/trump-rosenstein-comey-special-counsel-russia.html

Nothing will happen to Trump because he will succeed in killing the investigation of his collusion with Russia. He is plainly in the know on all the illegal deeds, but he has lived his worthless life flaunting the law, societal norms and human decency. His minions will rally around him and all the people who get their propaganda from FOX News, like people who are captive audiences at Watauga Medical Center, will just accept that all the hoopla is just a media-hyped story. They won't vote or they'll vote for Foxx and Trump and the rest of them. Since Watergate has there been a single Republican patriotic enough to put country ahead of party. Nope. Not going to happen now either.

The smartest thing this traitor did was hire the wife of that equally low-life Mitch McConnell to be in his cabinet. That guarantees that no matter the level of illegal acts this orange-haired monstrosity and his sycophants commit, McConnell will defend him. Trump is a liar; Pence is a liar; McConnell is a liar; and little Pauly Ryan is a liar. Oh, that's right. They proclaim themselves as big time Christians and are slathered with the grinning drool of the brown-nosing suck up to power, Franklin Graham, another gift to society and self-proclaimed holier-than-thou. So I guess lying and cheating and breaking the law is all okay, as long as you have Franklin in your corner, but it helps to hire the wife of the person who can keep anything from happening to you.
