Alas, that End Game will take some time. From his record, Mueller doesn't seem like the type to leave any wiggle room. We might not see charges against Trump or his inner circle for years yet.

Trump-Russia: Six big takeaways from the Flynn deal

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-42174518

1) Trump's inner circle has been breached

2) Flynn is talking

3) Flynn is contradicting the White House line

4) Mr Mueller could be building an obstruction of justice case

5) Only the tip of the iceberg?

6) The independent counsel investigation is wide-ranging

ABC News, today: Donald Trump's tweet could prove to be a turning point for his administration

 

Donald Trump may have just dropped himself in it in a big way.

 

 

 

In a tweet he's admitted that he sacked Michael Flynn because he lied to the FBI over the nature of his conversations with the Russian ambassador.

 

It was AFTER the national security adviser was sacked that Mr Trump (allegedly) asked then-FBI director James Comey to drop the Flynn investigation, saying "he's a good guy".

 

He also subsequently tweeted that Mr Flynn was the victim of a witch-hunt and should seek immunity from prosecution.

 

Yet, by the President's own admission today, he knew all along that Mr Flynn was guilty of a federal offence.

 

Since Mr Trump fired FBI chief Mr Comey, part of that probe has been assessing whether the President aimed to obstruct justice by pressuring the FBI boss to drop the investigation into Mr Flynn, among other things.

 

Proven obstruction of justice could lead to impeachment.

 

Mr Mueller was already looking at Mr Trump's sacking of Mr Comey and whether that was part of an attempt to shut down the Russia investigation.

 

The President has now admitted that he knew Mr Flynn had committed a federal offence, yet at the very least encouraged him to seek immunity anyway, and at worst tried to get him off the hook by asking the head of the FBI to abandon the investigation into his activities.

freitasm: He is so dumb.

 

Not so sure about the dumb bit. A wealthy but isolated arrogant aloofness I believe, better describes him. And does he care that he is described as dumb and all the other words thrown around about him? I doubt it. He is living the "American dream" and it is that that scares me most. I wonder who will follow next?

Whether Trump's mental state is due to brain rot or bad toilet training, the fact remains that he is a thoroughly awful human being. He's a lying, conniving, bullying, ego-maniacal spacewaster whose demise will be mourned by no rational person.

 

If he has achieved anything in his life, it is to alert future generations to the dangers of allowing uneducated, unwashed, unemployed and undiscriminating voters to get the upper hand in a farcical electoral process that doesn't reflect the will of the voters.

 

However, he's also a symptom of everything that's wrong with the country that was formerly known as the United States. Once a bastion of democracy, this divided land now can be seen as an example what can go wrong when fools are allowed a full say in the running of their country.

 

E pluribus Unum. Out of many, one.

 

Yeah. And that One is a bombastic, self serving poltroon.

Well, 'ow d'you become king then? I mean, you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you!

I propose a competition to best describe The Donald with a single word. 

 

A difficult task.  wink

 

The Rules:

 

  • One word only
  • Must be in the dictionary.
  • Must be printable

First blood goes to @geekIT for "poltroon" - a word also popular in North Korea:

You know "DPKR News Service" is a parody account right?

Those poor people ... with reality always trying to one-up satire, it must be getting really difficult to think of the next ridiculous thing to say.

Wikipedia: "Stockholm syndrome is a condition that causes hostages to develop a psychological alliance with their captors as a survival strategy during captivity."

 

The process is alive and well in the La La Land of DPKR.

 

 

 

Trump in one word? How about unconscious?

 

For me, one of the worst failings of homo sap (and perhaps the commonest) is unconsciousness, usually demonstrated by a total lack of awareness that anyone other than self has any relevance or importance, except to serve as an awed observer of, and listener to, self.

 

Merriam Webster has this to say about the definition of unconscious:

 

Having lost consciousness (Trump never had it to lose)
Not marked by conscious thought, sensation, or feeling (Trump's daily rationale)
Not knowing or perceiving, not aware (except of Self)
Not consciously...or deliberately planned or carried out (Trump's daily actions)
