I doubt there's anything even in the report. Mueller is a Republican FBI agent, he's not going to do anything to seriously compromise Trump. Smack him around a bit, fry some small fish so he knows what it is, sure. But to actually create something that could help Democrats, or god forbid, leftists? That ain't happening.
Republican politicians are getting so corrupt because the average red state only has one big ticket source of income (oil) and the price of admission for getting elected is to agree to play ball with oil lobbyists despite knowing that they're stealing huge amounts of money from the country.  Republican civil servants don't have to sign their souls away like that, and are perfectly capable of doing their jobs correctly.  When they don't its often the Ron Swanson "slit the throat of the federal government" libertarian types.  I... highly doubt that everyone's favorite former FBI director and disapproving dad is a libertarian.

Yes he did, but it took a while before that happened.

And yeah, as much as I'd like impeachment to not depend on the makeup of Congress, it unfortunately us going to take the Dems gaining control of Congress to get an impeachment through.

Though if he tries to remove Mueller in a re-enactment of the 'Saturday night massacre', we may not have to wait that long.

...and I bet Trump just came out and said he totally made the tweet, not his lawyer, because he has the best lawyers, and the greatest tweets, sad!

It looks bad for him whether or not his lawyer did it because lawyers are supposed to speak for their client, their word is the same as their client speaking.

Well, Nixon got impeached for obstructing justice, didn't he?
Depends on how you're using the word "impeachment". Articles of impeachment were passed (which is the legal definition of "impeached"), but abandoned because Nixon jumped ship. It's clear Tricky Dick expected he was going to lose, but that's not a certainty.

More importantly, Nixon was a Republican and the House was Democrat controlled for his entire presidency. I don't think Trump would jump ship even if the rats were fleeing, and the Republicans aren't likely to pass articles unless Trump's SS memorabilia collection is found.

i don't think he'd jump ship even if the majority of the nation was against him.
This is past you, saying hello to current you. Fuck every cop ? Now I wonder how you'd fare if police wasn't a thing where you live.

It was only in the 2060s that we discovered boot leather's addictive properties, which really made all the rest of history make more sense.

That's a pretty good comparison. Adolf, indeed, was a historical figure who despised the police force. He hated police so much that the existing police had to be given absolute power so that he could not stop them, and then secret police were formed to do things behind his back.

That's why they were secret police.

Because a significant percentage of them are biased humans with grudges, racist bias, general inferiority complexes, and (speaking from experience here) universally bad attitudes about everything with incredibly negative, cynical outlooks?

Is Raziel trying to change MSHís mind? Ďcause the Nazi comparison (perhaps ironic considering the stereotype of certain right-wing types being drawn to law enforcement) probably wonít achieve that.

I also think MSH is aware enough when someone is trying to troll him that the Nazi comparison wonít work there either.

Iím eager to see whatís next, but itís maybe a 2/10 so far.

Oh yeah? Well you know what else was 2/10? Double Hitler crowdsurfing ten other Hitlers, you dodeca-Nazi.
