    I'm not sure whether the idea of:

    a) "Putin as single dictator"
    or
    b) "cabal of ex-KGB higher ups have the real power"
    or
    c) "have some of the Russian mobsters/oligarchs really got control of it?"

    is the most scary, ick :/

    but hey at least we KNOW they murder folk!

    over here and in America, they just have "Bizarre gardening accidents", or shoot yourself twice in the back of the head with a pistol, or there is a lemming like desire amongst financiers...or a dozen radio engineers from the same company all suicide within a few years and several drive their cars filled with dozens of tanks of petrol into walls...or female police officers get shot from the rear at JUST the right time to change public opinion to allow US bombers to bomb Libya...a popular female TV presenter gets gunned down in broad daylight and a mentally disturbed guy is fitted up and treated like shit even after he's finally released since he wasn't the bloody killer and they knew it
    etc etc


    one knows what to expect with a thug (Russia)
    it's the hypocrisy and wilful ignorance that's worse (West)

    Thats from a couple years ago, its not new, its just being recycled as new by the oh so very trustworthy media. The Enquirer didnt pay him to keep quiet- they paid him for the story, then figured out it was bullshit so they didnt run it and released him from the contract. Think carefully what it says when the Enquirer has more journalistic integrity...

    My impression was that the Enquirer bought the story and buried it, the same way they did with the McDougal/Trump story

    Maybe Cohen is really, really good at being a "fixer"

    Maybe instead of "Better Call Saul", it's like "Better Phone Cohen" (closest rhyme I could get )

    Purely on a legal angle not something that could happen. Could they override him and hold the vote anyway?

    Heh. Rules of the Senate have *sort* of worked for the last 230 years or so. I blame this more on the stupidity / racism of the American people.

    Elections have consequences.

    Midterms look to be encouraging though.

    Most Republicans seem to be resigning or just dropping out lol.

    Re: Trump national security advisor Michael Flynn resigns over contacts with Russia

    Saw that last night. There's also a move underfoot to justify firing Rosenstein. Apparently Nunes and some others on the House intelligence committee are demanding that he turn over Comey's memos to them. Problem is, those are evidence in Mueller's investigation and Rosenstein can't legally turn them over to the committee (at least that's the way it sounds). When he refuses, is this a pretext for them to let Trump fire Rosenstein?

    Well, Trump has apparently backed down from firing Rosenstein... the reason? Rosenstein told Trump that he was not a target of the investigation.

    https://www.axios.com/rod-rosenstein...91ec546c1.html

    So, the obvious thing here is that if Trump *were* a target, he would fire them? Wow, way to telegraph your obstruction, Mr. president!

    Seen summaries of the memos around here and there, haven't read them myself

    Apparently, Trump and Putin discussed the quality of Russian hookers. This was in their (supposedly) first ever call to each other? Yeah, OK.

    Also, Trump speculated about sending reporters to jail over publishing leaked materials

    did it never occur to anyone that Trump never, ever really got the idea of...Democracy...Rule of Law...honesty....integrity, those kind of things?


    though, our scum have been very sleekit in their ways to turn our countries into a tyranny, too, because they too have no concern for anyone, working hand in glove, or fist up arse, with Rupert Murdoch, and depriving citizens of their existance and legitimacy by destroying their immigration papers...

    LOL, the hits just keep on coming...

    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-u...-idUSKBN1HR2BE

    The Democratic Party sued Russia, President Donald Trump’s campaign and WikiLeaks on Friday, charging that they conspired to disrupt the 2016 U.S. presidential election, a court filing showed.
    The party alleges in the federal lawsuit in Manhattan that top Trump campaign officials conspired with the Russian government and its military spy agency to hurt Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and tilt the election to Trump by hacking Democratic Party computers.

    The lawsuit also names Donald Trump Jr., Trump associate Roger Stone and Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, as defendants.

    The lawsuit alleges that Trump’s campaign “gleefully welcomed Russia’s help” in the 2016 election.

    Re: Trump national security advisor Michael Flynn resigns over contacts with Russia

    I was reading through Seth Abramson's thread about the Comey memos (50 posts) and something struck me. Trump has always said that there were no prostitutes in the hotel with him at Moscow, when he was there for the Miss Universe pageant. But numerous people have said there were women trying to get to Trump's room. I wonder if the women were contestants from the pageant, rather than prostitutes?

    Hmmm....
