I wasn't really focusing on that aspect, but more on the fact that he was an elected politician for so long.

Regardless of anything else, I'm of the sentiment that the new person should be a veteran of law enforcement, like Mueller and Comey both were. Either a prominent US Attorney, or a former Police Chief/Commissioner, or someone from with in the Bureau itself.

I think the best person for the job would be McCabe himself. He's already there, just let him do the job. Otherwise, maybe Bill Bratton or something. I dunno. Just not a politician, of any stripe.

Either that, or he has the richest and sexiest voice on Earth.

I can't really conceive of any middle ground there.

I was somewhat iffy on whether the USA could weather Trump. Now I'm certain. He needs to go.

First on CNN: Russian officials bragged they could use Flynn to influence Trump, sources say

I can't even.

This has been a truly awful flight for Trump. As soon as he goes into the air, like 2 or 3 stories dropped and even more stuff has come out since. Just wait until he gives the speech.

Right, but in terms of possibilities I'd say it's pretty remote that the US Attorney appointed by Donald Trump actually follows up even if such a request were made.

Well, in point of fact, the US Attorney in DC is an Acting USA because Trump hasn't gotten around to naming a new one...

AND...

...now that there's a Special Counsel, and this issue is connected to the others, Congress could request the action of Mueller.

So in reality, it was a very small likelihood, but it just got a whole lot more possible, even if it didn't get more likely.

Wow, that's surprising. The only person that I'd expect would be closer to Trump would be Ivanka. Hopefully this will actually stick to Trump.

In our weekly dose of fake news, have some from noted not-particularly-her-surname Louise Mensch:



I'm not quite sure I've seen a sadder piece of fanfiction in my life, including Harry/Draco drabbles with all the grammar of a particularly slow eight year old.

I think the only factual things in that text might be Trump texting Flynn (though that happened not particularly recently IIRC) and Rosenstein meeting with the House Judiciary? It's honestly impressive how far off she is.

Okay. Theory: @louisemensch and @truefactsstated are using a Nigerian email technique. To wit: weeding out non-imbeciles. /1

Nigerian scammers include bad spelling, grammar, and logic to weed out non-dupes quickly and narrow responses to the stupidest dupes. /2

Similarly, these are are gratuitously salting their rumors with impossible nonsense not out of stupidity, but calculation...../3

They're doing it to weed out critical thinkers or the relatively normal, to build a core base of reliably credulous morons. /4

Once they've removed all the working bulbs from the box, they can count on the dim remainder to be reliable distributors of any message. /5

I don't buy it. I think that's giving her far more credit for forward-thinking and analytics than she's demonstrated.

It's certainly possible, but given her behavior thus far, it's an extremely remote possibility.

Vox had an article about that. A lot of Dems are falling for the whole fake news shit. I think Mensch had one lucky break in writing a story that turned out to be true but since then has been just writing whatever.

The one I can never figure out is jester. Still not sure if that's just some dude fucking around or not.

Interesting article. I find it fascinating that the left is becoming the "anti-Russia" and paranoid of Moscow. What a role reversal!

They realize they sound like Sarah Palin right?

Amazing how Obama ridiculed Romney for saying Russia was a big threat.

Eh, it's one thing to be paranoid, another to see a threat when it had already attacked.
