Real Life Intrudes

The Fed has raised interest rates to stop the ‘inflation that has never gotten started and keep a lid on full employment.

Trump has convinced Mueller to investigate him. Comey wasn’t investigating Trump, but after Trump fired Comey and kept making strange statements, Mueller has apparently decided to see if Trump was involved in obstructing justice.

Meanwhile, I’m rehabbing another apartment, and getting a new bumper on my car after a stump leapt out of the grass and tore off the old one. That’s life in the hinterlands.

Funny, ain’t it, how real life has a way of leaping out & biting one on their rear bumper?!

No comment re: Trump (amazing, I know). Well OK, one… He’s a complete moron & his own worst enemy. Hasn’t everyone received that memo yet?! Sheesh.

It was the front bumper and the stump was hiding in a clump of grass. My fault, it should have made me wonder why there was a clump in an otherwise mowed yard.

As for Trump, the courts are ripping him a new one for what he writes on Twitter and says in public which undercuts the claims of the lawyers trying to defend his stupid crap. He is a witness for the prosecution in all of the cases against him.

Here, from the *inside*:

Rogue WH Snr Advisor‏ @RogueSNRadvisor:
“Pres wants to “get rid of anything” that will help prove obstruction case.
I don’t think he gets it.”

“The cover up is always worse than the crime. Even a 5yr old cookie thief knows this.”

“Pres had WH chef make birthday cake w/ image of electoral college victory in frosting.”

“GOP saying ‘partisan rhetoric now an issue’ is ironic. Lesson from today should be that we all need to listen to each other. But we don’t.”

“The constant & immediate politicization of every. single. thing. is draining our society of solutions & only leaving us with more problems.”

“Pres thinks if he fires Mueller, his power will be “consolidated” and “…the investigation will finally end.””

And much more like this. Of course. 🙂

It is possible that Trump is merely trying to hide what his net worth actually is, which is probably not the billions he claims. It would seem that he is only a minority stake-holder in many of the assets he claims, and that stake is mortgaged. It doesn’t matter if he is not actually covering up a crime, but only attempting to protect his ‘image’, he is giving every indication of obstructing an investigation, which is a crime on its own.

Oh! Front… oops! Sorry. 😉 I still like my pun! :p

Speaking of Mueller…
Special Counsel Has Hired 13 Lawyers, ‘With Several More In The Pipeline’

I think he’s getting serious! 😉 😀

He is creating a major all star team for this investigation and is expanding the topics under investigation. He has a financial fraud ace and a top criminal litigator [a barrister, in the British system, a trial lawyer in the US]. I have thought for some time that this was going to boil down to money laundering through real estate transactions.

Yes, there have been more than a few hints over the Months about the $$$. And in the end, with a’holes like Trump, it’s almost always about the $$$!

I wonder if any are lawyers Trump screwed? That would be an hilarious form of poetic justice!

These guys are Justice Department professionals, and it is unlikely that they have had a chance to deal with Trump before. Previous encounters would almost automatically result in their having to recuse themselves for being biased against him.

9 Kryten42 { 06.17.17 at 11:27 am }

He’s been screwing everyone for decades. So it’s possible someone may have worked @ a firm he screwed in the past. There are a lot. 😉 😀 Anyway, I guess we’ll see.

As long as their names don’t appear on the court docs, they don’t have a problem. Working at a firm isn’t the same as being involved in the case.
