    Trump’s decision to abruptly fire McMaster surprised senior White House aides who had been preparing a single statement announcing the departure of multiple top Trump officials (incl. Shulkin and Carson), two senior administration officials tell Politico.

    White House counsel Don McGahn is expected to step down later this year, though his resignation is contingent on Trump finding a replacement, four sources tell Politico.

    McGahn’s told associates he’d like to leave the White House by the summer. https://t.co/IMtxw5iNc7

    So another white domestic terrorist, ho sorry, "challenged nerdy young man", kills people, in Austin this time, but of course the national defense is compromised by all those bad hombres coming from foreign countries.

    Trump wants to nuke something. Bolton wants to nuke Iran. The indictments against Iranian hackers is a win-win for both.

    In January, the Pentagon announced that nuclear strikes would now be considered an appropriate response to certain cyberattacks https://t.co/CuEUlGsFHm https://t.co/8gw1SIuAb4

    Switching gears ... I want to know why the head of the EPA requires a round the clock security detail (multiple agents) and why he and his staff require first class or, in some cases, private planes in the name of security. What’s the big security risk for the EPA head?

    The story below is huge. Lots of dots to connect:

    Guccifer 2.0, the “lone hacker” who took credit for providing WikiLeaks with stolen emails from the DNC, was in fact an officer of Russia’s military intelligence directorate (GRU), The Daily Beast has learned.
    https://t.co/kxECGlvY2X

    “The Daily Beast has learned that the special counsel in that investigation, Robert Mueller, has taken over the probe into Guccifer and brought the FBI agents who worked to track the persona onto his team.” https://t.co/cxq9wNipmD


    Trump considered firing John Kelly this month and not naming a successor, three people familiar with the discussions tell NBC News.

    Trump mused about running the W.H. as he did his business, essentially serving as his own chief of staff, the sources said.

    Apparently, this guy has a good track record at forecasting moves that Mueller makes with the investigation. I don't know if this is true, I just started following him.

    It could be indictments, could be Roger Stone into custody this morning at his house and currently at FBI HQ, it could be both, or it could be another completely different important story. Guess you’ll have to wait a few hours to find out.

    I know that I shouldn't ignore what's going on in the political sphere. But the mental exhaustion of seeing what this...administration has done and continues to do. All I feel is contempt.

    DiGenova role on President's legal team in flux

    By Pamela Brown, Gloria Borger and Evan Perez, CNN

    Updated 1:11 PM EDT, Fri March 23, 2018




    (CNN) Veteran Washington attorney Joseph diGenova's role as part of President Donald Trump's legal team is still in question, according to two sources familiar with the matter.




    DiGenova's hiring was announced on Monday by Jay Sekulow, counsel to the President. DiGenova, along with his wife and law partner, Victoria Toensing, had a Thursday meeting with the President, the sources said. Even so, diGenova's role, as well as that of Toensing who is also in discussions about joining the team, are in flux. One source said no one has been officially hired.


    The Thursday meeting was the first time the husband-and-wife legal team met with the President since the Monday announcement. One source said that while Trump liked their message, the President is not convinced they are right for the legal jobs.



    On Monday, after word that diGenova was coming on board, Sekulow said in a statement, "Former US Attorney for the District of Columbia Joe DiGenova will be joining our legal team later this week. I have worked with Joe for many years and have full confidence that he will be a great asset in our representation of the President."


    A source familiar with the plans said on Monday that diGenova's role was to engage with the media and actively defend the President.


    But there is concern about conflicts for both diGenova and Toensing, according to two sources. The two run a small firm and there is a question if diGenova can reasonably claim a lack of conflict when his wife represents clients like Mark Corrallo, who has spoken to special counsel Robert Mueller's team about how the President and his team responded to the revelations regarding the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting that Donald Trump Jr. and other campaign officials had with a group of Russians.


    Toensing also represents former Trump campaign national co-chair Sam Clovis, who has faced scrutiny for his connection to campaign foreign policy team member George Papadopoulos, two sources said. NBC News reported Clovis talked to the special counsel. Toensing has asked her clients to sign waivers regarding the conflicts, CNN is told by one person familiar with the matter, but that may not be sufficient to assuage the concerns.
    DiGenova and Toensing declined to comment. The White House did not comment.


    John Dowd, who resigned Thursday as the President's lead lawyer to handle the special counsel's investigation, raised the conflict issue to the legal team before he quit, the sources said.


    There are discussions with other attorneys to take Dowd's role, sources said. Dowd had been negotiating with Mueller's office over a potential interview with the President.

    Dummy is calling on Congress to give him line item veto. He might want to look up the decades old SCOTUS ruling. Or have his staff act it out with hand puppets. Fucking idiot.

    Source: Robert Reich's Facebook page



    Robert Reich

    H.R. McMaster, Gary Cohn, and Rex Tillerson have been replaced by stark-raving mad John Bolton, bonkers Lawrence Kudlow, and suck-up Mike Pompeo.

    Advisers who tried to moderate are gone.

    Those who play to his worst impulses are in -- a Star Wars cantina of toadies and sycophants.


    Trump is unbound. The man who once said he could shoot someone dead on Fifth Avenue and still be elected president now openly boasts of lying to the Canadian Prime Minister; decides on his own to negotiate mano a mano with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un; unilaterally slaps tariffs on imported steel and aluminum; demands the death penalty for drug dealers; and moves toward a trade war with China.


    Congressional Republicans are afraid to stand up to him.


    People, this is serious. Will he now fire Mueller? Nuke North Korea? We need more than ever to take back the House and Senate in November. In the meantime, an unconstrained Trump can do incalculable damage.


    Your thoughts?
