  7. American is now well down the road to fascist rule. Trump playing to his mob and using outright lies to accuse his opponents is a tactic used by every fascist dictator in history. It’s now obvious why trump kept a copy of Mein Kampf next to his bed. Probably the only book he has ever read.

  8. Draining the Swamp may help restore our judicial system to its Constitutional role, but Congress has always had the ability to restructure the Federal judiciary by passing the appropriate laws to do so, i.e. the number of district courts and courts of appeals, and even the number of SCOTUS justices.

    Don’t forget Supreme Court judge John Roberts. He has a big part in the affair too.

  12. Funny how D5[Clas] was talked about in Nov or Dec about panic in DC, and now all the redactions are in D5 of the Mueller report?

    Think … who is … Ray Chandler ???

  16. “No one is above the law.”
    “A sitting President can’t be indicted.”
    Can someone explain the logic behind those two statemnts for me? I would really appreciate it. Because in my world, those two things directly contradict each other.
