Particularly since he started a countdown to sacking this guy with '90 days to go'.

To do it a day before his pension manifests though is just petty cruelty (also sends a message).

There seems to be no way in the world this doesn't end up in an ugly appeal, tribunal, court etc. Mud being slung everywhere. It's not like the man is going to let his career pension go without a fight. Lunacy to expose yourself to it, angry, desperate lunacy.

If it *was* an attempt to send a message to make him and more junior ppl shut up, it might not work, as that statement makes it clear that he won't back down and will remain a witness to Mueller as and when required.

I come back to an old point, there’s no strategy here, no multi-dimensional chess, no master plan, these is just the actions of an ignorant, impulsive and vindictive manchild lashing out like a fool.

I don't think that's why he did it though*. It's a clumsy attempt to discredit his testimony when he gives it. Now, Trump's Defense team can argue, "The President fired him so of course he'd say such and such!"

*Orange probably has it bang on about the real reason why, but anyway. . .

It's basically "OK if I can't fire Mueller who CAN I fire?"

This person says the memos are similar to the ones maintained by former FBI Director James Comey, who Trump fired last May.

Comey’s series of notes detailed interactions with Trump that Comey said unnerved him.

The person with knowledge of McCabe’s situation says McCabe’s memos include details of interactions with the president, among other topics.

It’s not immediately clear whether any of the McCabe memos have been turned over to special counsel Robert Mueller or requested by Mueller.
Hmm

I’m thinking that a large proportion of the people near/on the fence in 2016, who did vote for the moron, must realise he’s taking the piss by now. The experiment has failed and yes, society was right, he really is a complete tool.

I guess the mid terms will tell.

Almost all the evidence points to that, but let’s see. I’m also curious about how he responds if November goes against him.

I wouldn't put him past trying to turn the US into a dictatorship. Would be interesting to see the response of the Secret Service in that eventuality.

Yet it doesn't stop hundreds and thousands of people in the UK determined to vote for "an outsider", "rebel" who is now the leader of HM Opposition.. Whenever you challenge those people with the comparisons to the election of this fucking moron, they are unable to reconcile the similarities.

Even in the face of the recent Russian activities here, which he pandered too.

You know, just sayin'.

Maybe instead of griping endlessly about the opposition cause célèbre even after a GE that swung violently towards him, you should ask yourself why people are disenfranchised en masse by the mainstream. Because people can and will vote for whatever the fuck they think is right regardless of anyone's disdain.

Just saying.

Trump's lawyer speaks entirely for himself when he demands the Justice Department shut down Mueller's investigation on Trump.

The Cambridge Analytica story has really ramped up. Had no idea It was under investigation on both sides of atlantic... Had read pieces before about what they'd been up to, but always treated it half and half conspiracy vs hack job. Turns out there was rather a lot of fire.

Aye, long read but it’s worthwhile : https://www.theguardian.com/news/201...x-bannon-trump

Hopefully this is the beginning of a much bigger... Hesitant to say story, as it will fade as people switch off, but... movement ? Will people ditch fb? As the article makes clear, you can't put the genie back in. Perhaps the only way to start this kind of thing is to train everyone to recognise information warfare to pull its teeth.

App opt in that hands over your entire family and friends list for harvesting is not something that facebook can allow to continue now imo. After may they'd be in the frame for colossal handling fines in the EU at least.

Because 'people' broadly (in my experience) believe there is a simple black/white answer to any question or issue, which as a result means they are either incapable of or do not wish to recognise that most resolutions lie in compromise and deal making.

As a result, they consider mainstream politicians as the devil for 'compromising their ethics' when in reality its about a negotiated settlement.

US example: Obama compromising with the Affordable Care Act, because whilst he and millions of others may want an NHS style system the US broadly I would argue isn't ready to accept that. As a result a compromise.

Currently 'People' in the UK will blindly vote for that old grey cunt because they think its better to be shouting across the pulpit in Parliament with morals and fantasy policies as a reasonable excuse for not being in Government and actually having the power and responsibility to make a difference, albeit a compromised one. Unlike those people, I don't.

Happy to further discuss why people are so disenfranchised by mainstream politics Nersh, but I'm sure you've read this and disagree with me wholly anyway.
