As the noose tightens Donald Trump’s attacks on the Mueller investigation become more frequent and more unhinged.

So essentially Donald Trump is demanding that his Attorney General shut down an investigation into possible wrongdoing on his part because it looks like the investigation is close to proving that wrongdoing. 

Makes sense is a kind of Nixonian way.

Paul Manafort’s trial started yesterday and Trump had a few words about that as well. 


For the record that “short time” was five months as the campaign manager, and Sean Hannity even gave Manfort credit for making the campaign such a success. 

Oh, and if the FBI HAD told Trump that they were investigating Manafort, it is almost certain that he would have spilled the beans and told his campaign manager all about it. 

The smell of desperation emanating from the White Hosue is now so overpowering I am surprised that they have not yet fumigated the place. 

Or at the very least invited in an exorcist.

    ‘“The President of the United States just called on his Attorney General to put an end to an investigation in which the President, his family and campaign may be implicated,” complained Democratic congressman Adam Schiff.

    “This is an attempt to obstruct justice hiding in plain sight. America must never accept it.”’

      Trump’s Latest Tweet May Have Made Mueller’s Obstruction Case for Him

      What President Donald Trump‘s Wednesday morning tweets potentially represent is the president digging himself into a deeper hole.

      Special Counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly been looking at Trump’s tweets and other public statements targeting former FBI directors James Comey and Andrew McCabe, as well as sitting Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Lo and behold, Trump tweeted about all three of them this morning, adding to a mountain of similarly worded tweets.

    ” “Social-media users need to be AWARE of their role in information laundering. If a user retweets, emails, or posts information taken from a less-than-credible point of origin, they now have become the new ‘source’ of that information for friends, family, [and] followers,” Schafer told Mother Jones. “This is how false information really spreads.” “We’ve culled the below from some of the best online guides and expert advice—with the caveat that malicious actors continue to grow more sophisticated and none of these indicators is surefire.”

    I am arriving at a conclusion that Trump simply seeks to get a sick kick from people who believe his lies then cheer. There is no wisdom, logic or reason to run, tweet, these smear campaigns.
    It is merely Trump’s consistent behavior to assassinate the character of others to con people. His base stopped listening to anyone but him long ago.

    “The entire investigation is based off of a DIRTY, discredited dossier that was paid for by an opposing campaign and had a lot of corruption within the entity which was overseeing it, which was Peter Strzok, James Comey, Andrew McCabe,” “

    ” Criss{WHITE}cro$$ing between networks, Giuliani has maintained a disastrous press schedule that has seen him fail so badly he’s had to later call into the networks in order to clarify his recent statements.” “Head-scratching as it is, this public relations blitz is just another attempt by Trump and company to get out ahead of a scandal that could end his presidency, an endeavor assisted time and again by America’s cable networks, which continue to give Trump and his associates all the airtime they could possibly ever want.

    Though Giuliani has largely come off as a bumbling fool in his recent turns before the cameras, his job has never been to fully explain away the storm of allegations and scandals surrounding the presidency. Instead, Giuliani has been running interference and confusing an already confused situation” “That media Trump has repeatedly decried and vilified has shown an unhealthy obsession with letting the president and his supporters come on television and spin their message. Hardly a panel on CNN goes by without a former Trump staffer or adviser toeing the party line. Whenever a sycophant like Giuliani comes calling, the networks can barely wait to broadcast whatever drivel he has to say over their airwaves.

    This isn’t the first time they’ve made this mistake. It’s been a consistent misstep in the media’s coverage of Donald Trump and has been the norm since he first announced his candidacy. Though media outlets have regularly questioned their complicity in his political ascension, they’ve continued to fall into the same trap over and over again, and, to the detriment of the country, have kowtowed to the specter of politics as entertainment.” “Trump was unavoidable in the summer of 2015. Every time you clicked through the channels he’d be there, pounding away at his xenophobic and hateful message before an ever larger audience. The cable networks skipped commercial breaks in order not to miss whatever offensive thing Trump might say next, and their ratings continued to climb.

    By the time it was over, it was estimated that Trump had received $5 BILLION in FREE advertising from the coverage.
    That jaw-dropping figure certainly made a difference as the upstart candidate built an unwavering base and completed his takeover of the Republican Party.

    “A recent poll conducted by CBS News/YouGov found that 91 percent of the president’s supporters trust Donald Trump for accurate information, an overwhelming response that shows just how much sway Trump has over his base.”

    ‘for example, when he asked all his staff to leave the room so he can have a one-on-one conversation with [former FBI Director] Jim Comey to ask him to back off [former national security adviser] Mike Flynn, it’s pretty good evidence that he was trying to conceal it, because he knew what he was doing is inappropriate,” “Just because he says it publicly, that doesn’t mean it’s not evidence of his guilt,” he said. “That’s powerful evidence against him. Just because he’s stupid enough to do it publicly does not mean it is any less damaging.””

    ‘ “A reminder: the investigation was triggered by Russia attacking our democracy in the 2016 Presidential election.”

    She went on to note that President’s Trump’s Twitter feed seemed more extreme today, suggesting he might be getting nervous about the Mueller probe.

    “When you look at Trump’s Twitter feed today. Something is clearly freaking him out,” Baldwin told CNN reporter April Ryan.

    “You’re absolutely right Brooke, he is very upset. This President is putting his emotions on Twitter.”

    “This Manafort trial is making them frantic. They don’t understand … it’s toxic.”

    She pointed out that even though Manafort is on trial for financial crimes there are “still tentacles leading to Russia.”’

    FB Excerpts>”Wait, is that a quote mark at the beginning of Trump’s comment? Who was he quoting?
    Well?
    Minutes passed.
    And I began to suspect minutes were the ONLY thing passing.
    Seriously, waiting for Trump push out his tweets every morning, one constipated grunt at a time, is maddening.”
    ” ALAN DERSHOWITZ….”
    Annnnnd he’s quoting Alan Dershowitz. Well, that explains why Trump was referring to himself in the third person — It’s important to check, you never really know if Trump’s gone full Imperial I. You gotta pay attention.”
    “And let me just say this while we wait for Trump to pinch out the next installment: if for nothing else, he should be impeached for STILL not knowing how to thread his damned comments. Sure, sure, he’s publicly abusing the power of his office in an attempt to stop in an active FBI investigation where he is the focus of the investigation, but it’s the threading thing that really irritates me.”
    “Now, see, the thing is: your own AG is a bigoted right-wing Confederate, a religious nut, a conservative fanatic in the Southern mold who has made a career out of bending the law to meet his biased partisan agenda, a guy who would do nearly anything to screw over half the country for his beliefs, and even THAT GUY thinks there might be something to this. Even THAT GUY thinks the investigation should continue without interference.”
    “Trump asks “Why didn’t government tell me that he was under investigation?”
    Why didn’t the GOVERNMENT tell him?
    Government?
    Funny how these republicans are all BIG GOVERNMENT SUCKS. WE HATE BIG GOVERNMENT. GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO STAY OUTTA MAH BUSINESS! ”
    “Nearly an hour goes by and I was starting to think maybe that was it, then:
    “Looking back on history, who was treated worse, Alfonse Capone, legendary mob boss, killer and ‘Public Enemy Number One,’ or Paul Manafort, political operative & Reagan/Dole darling, now serving solitary confinement – although convicted of nothing? Where is the Russian Collusion?”
    Maybe it’s just me, but comparing your campaign chairman to a notorious mobster isn’t the best idea?
    And where the hell did THAT come from anyway?
    Like you’re sitting there on the toilet raging about Manafort and AL CAPONE comes to mind? How’s THAT connection work?”
    “MAN, that was a long one. The White House chef really needs to up the fiber content of Trump’s meals. Seriously, he should be eating nothing but burlap and wood chips at this point. Hillary Clinton. I didn’t think we were EVER going to get to Hillary Clinton this morning.

    ‘“Well, it’s certainly evidence of obstruction of justice. And first, we really have to worry about the mental stability of our president when he is incriminating himself on Twitter. This is very, very damaging, very incriminating tweet. It’s part of a long pattern of obstruction of justice. He fired James Comey. He has repeatedly tried to pressure Jeff Sessions to and fire Robert Mueller. And the prosecutor will find evidence of obstruction inside the White House, I’m sure. But, you know, the House and Senate judiciary committee should be investigating this. We’re way past the time of 1973 where they were investigating Richard Nixon. I’m shocked there is no investigation for obstruction of justice and abuse of power and other high crimes and misdemeanors.”’
    ‘“I think we were past that point when he fired James Comey. It was clear he fired James Comey in order to obstruct the Russia investigation, and he admitted to that in front of the Russian ambassador in several TV interviews. We should have had hearings in the House and Senate judiciary committee at the same time that Robert Mueller was hired. And that’s the way it was done in the Nixon days. They had the House and Senate actually doing their jobs, and investigating. This is and has been evidence of obstruction of justice going all the way back to the Comey firing, at least. It’s shameful it’s not being investigated. He ought to be out of office by now.”’

      I was watching some of the hearings from the Watergate committee recently, one thing that stood out was even though there were republicans and Democrats on the committee, the republicans did not try and obstruct the hearings. I am not a republican but i still liked Howard Baker.

    Delaware Sen. Chris Coons: ‘a treasure trove of thousands of hacked emails … is a thing of value’

    Sen. Chris Coons , a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, filmed a video after President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and the President spent the past several days claiming that “collusion is not a crime.”
    “Hi, I’m Sen. Chris Coons from Delaware, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. I’ve recently noticed that Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s personal lawyer, has been publicly saying that collusion isn’t illegal, that he can’t find it in the code books, and I just wanted to offer my advice.

    “What we’re talking about here is an ongoing investigation by Robert Mueller, the special counsel, into whether or not Russian nationals, military intelligence staff of the Russian GRU, provided some assistance to the Trump campaign in 2016, and whether or not that form of collusion or cooperation might be illegal.

    “So, I took the liberty of looking into the United States Code. In Title 52, Section 30121 it says, ‘It shall be unlawful for a foreign national, directly or indirectly, to make a contribution or donation of money or other thing of value in connection with a federal, state, or local election,’ and it goes on to say, ‘or for a person solicit, accept, or receive a contribution or donation described above from a foreign national.’

    “It seems pretty clear to me that anything like a treasure trove of thousands of hacked emails, that is a thing of value, being solicited, accepted by an American campaign from Russian nationals would be a clear violation of U.S. Code, and actions to work together with Russian nationals to subvert our code would be illegal collusion.

    “My advice to Mr. Giuliani would be, instead of arguing that it isn’t illegal, to advise his client to cooperate fully with the Mueller investigation in the hope and expectation that if he is innocent, he’ll be fully cleared, and if not, that our laws will be enforced.”

    Trump and Giuliani have been in high chaotic spin and obfuscation mode. Last week it was reported that Mueller is looking at Trump’s tweets. The majority of citizens, the media, past and currently elected officials have questioned why Trump frequently sent tweets that were self incriminating and apparent obstruction of justice. Even his lawyers and staff could not get him to stop tweeting lies, false allegations and demands to shut down the Russia investigaion, Flynn, Cohen and Manafort. Yesterday was a campaign to get out of the hole Trump has dug for his self to manipulate his credibility by destroying any credibility of others, their work and history. It is too late to spin that Trum’s tweets, social media broadcasts, were “only opinions”. Nice try but ridiculous.

    A. Little while ago I posted my comment that Trump and Giuliani may have reacted to reports that Mueller is looking at his tweets. After posting I found this link but have not yet read the NYT piece. As I came here to post the link the news is saying Breaking News Mueller is looking at Trump’s tweets. IMO Trump is driven to smear people and lie to co troll his false grandiose image that he was oblivious how much he revealed on Twitter.
