    Rumours going around about Trump Jr indictment being immenant.

    The whole Mueller thing has been quiet for a while.

    What protection does the investigation now have with a more friendly congress? I know congress can supeona for its own commuttee’s investigations, can evidence collected by congress be used by Mueller?

    @Rodney It's been quiet because Mueller didn't want the investigation to impact the mid terms.

    In news that might be related, Jeff Sessions has resigned. People now suggesting that Sessions was the only one stopping Mueller from being fired, so Trump could hire someone as an attorney general more in favour with him and have Mueller fired. But apparently with the Democrats in the house, they can re hire him and the investigation continues.

    People aren't just saying that now. It's been constantly stated that Sessions was the only thing from Mueller being fired. It was the one line Trump couldn't cross, but we all the tango cunt has no line.

    Yeah... democrats have it covered:

    Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi has already pledged to make sure Mueller’s “documentation is preserved” and the likely next House speaker also holds in her back pocket the threat of launching impeachment hearings against Trump if the president tries to oust Mueller or if the special counsel’s investigators ultimately uncover a smoking gun involving criminal behavior.

    Democrats are even prepping a break-glass scenario in case there’s a Nixon-era Saturday Night Massacre where Trump fires his current DOJ leadership and tries to shutter the Mueller probe in the process. If that happens, senior Democratic officials say Mueller would likely get an immediate summons to Capitol Hill for nationally-televised testimony about his findings.

    Trump can do whatever the fuck he wants, or at least try to. Been talking of impeachment from week one and it apparently can’t happen without senate approval(?).

    Rosenstein's also been 'resigned': supposedly he also had some modicum of respect for the investigation…

    I’ve got no doubt they’ll try. I’ve got no doubt they’ll sadly fail. Senate and Judiciary are safe and Trump will just dismiss it all as excessive wind blowing and fake news.
    Committees in the House can open investigations, subpoena records and people and generally investigate the fuck out of Trump and his cronies. And there’s nothing the Senate or President can do to stop them; they require no permission from either.

    Trump’s only power is over the DoJ in trying to prevent criminal investigations coming from what the committees discover, or perusing people who ignore the subpoenas.

    As with Clinton’s beej scandal, the House can vote to impeach Trump but unless the Senate does the same it doesn’t push the President out of his job.

    If Mueller has a bombshell, it's just about possible that enough of the senate will rediscover their balls and agree to impeach. But I doubt it somehow.

    Depends on that bombshell though.

    I think he has Trump on everything from conspiracy to commit computer crimes to money laundering to obstruction. It’s going to be a major shitstorm.

    They just revoked CNN's Jim Acosta's press pass to the White House. Trump's war against the free press has begun in earnest, it seems.

    I think it also has to be two thirds of the Senate, which basically makes it impossible in this kind of climate. It's why no president has ever been removed through impeachment. (Nixon probably would have been, but he quit before the impeachment motion was passed)

    That would do it. Or he's a Muslim.

    I just had an odd dream about Trump. And to answer the next question, no it wasn't sexual. It ended in a situation with a shotgun when it seemed likely that either he would kill me or I would kill him, when the fucking alarm went off.

    Sarah Huckabee-Sanders shared a doctored Infowars video of it, trying to make it look like he karate-chopped the staffer who grabbed for his mike. New level of ridiculous even for them

    Edit: original video for comparison is at the top of this page

    I don't even think the doctored one looks like he "laid hands on a woman" like they're claiming

    Why isn't Trevor Noah going to these press conferences? I'd love to see a back and forth between him and the leader of the greatest demockery on earth.

    OK so for people not getting the joke. There's this pretty famous film, you may have heard of it, called Jaws the shark. In the film Rob Schneider plays a police chief originally from Kansas, who moves to a small island town in Florida. Jaws the shark turns up and starts eating the people on the island so Rob Schneider lures him to a building site that was partially submerged after a hurrican. Just as Jaws the shark is about to eat Rob Schneider Rob hits some scaffolding with a bat and causes a partially constructed house to fall on Jaws the shark. As he does so he shouts "this one's from Kansas you motherfucking shark"

    So essentially the joke is that Ann Coulter's sister is a great white shark.

    Acosta even says "Pardon me maam" as she attempts to grab the mic off his hand mid question. There's no "assault" but then I've already see Trump supporters say that he should have just shut up when Trump told him to and handed the Mic back as it wasn't his.
