Not Me…

From Crooks & Liars – DOJ Appoints Special Counsel In Russia Investigation:

Here’s your breaking news for Wednesday, May 17, 2017. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel on the Trump-Russia investigation.

In a written statement, Rosenstein said,”In my capacity as acting attorney general I determined that it is in the public interest for me to exercise my authority and appoint a special counsel to assume responsibility for this matter.”

After the way the White House handled the Comey firing Mr. Rosenstein got the feeling that he was being set up, so he handed off the problem. The Toddler-in-Chief will probably be upset, but Mueller won’t care, and Rosenstein can bail out while he still has his law license.

Even David Brooks has given up on Trump.

The trip to Israel should be interesting. Trump may be met by tourist officials as the intel he passed to the Russians came from Israel and now Russia will pass it along to Iran. Trump didn’t know this, but then he doesn’t know too much of anything. I can’t see Israel passing any more information to the US while Trump is President.

Well, at least Trump understands the rules of a knife fight. I hope Mueller understands that threatening the Trump revenue stream will bring out the savage. No, the fall will not kill Trump, he’ll get more shrill, nationalistic and spread hi paranoia to the teabaggers.

Let’s face facts — the only thing that could turn Trump’s core supporters away from him would be if Trump one day suddenly woke up as a black man.

Trump’s paranoia is out there for all to see. but we will need to convince his voters that “orange is the new black” before they will admit that he is the schmuck that he has always been. 😈
