"Onward and upward. The news we should be focusing on is the economy today. We could (should) set a record for the longest recovery - ever. That is big flipping news. Not the news about how a dirty lawyer flipped on his client. Just saying..."
Well the totally expected thing happened yesterday. A sleazy lawyer (heavy on the word sleazy) violated his attorney-client agreement and flipped on the President. How so? Did he tell Mueller that Donald Trump was in bed with Putin? Oh no - this was worse. He told Mueller that Trump (before becoming President) had authorized some hush money be paid to some gals Trump (allegedly) was messing around with.
Then what did we learn? First off, a President of the United States is not always true to his wedding vows. In other news, we found out that sweet corn in Minnesota is really good this time of year. All this time and trouble (and a boat load of cash) to find out what we already knew - Donald Trump has not always been a saint in his life. However - there is a big difference between not being faithful to your spouse and doing something illegal. Since Trump authorized "hush money" from his own funds, no harm, no foul.
I will say this - after hearing about what Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen were found guilty of, both are deserving to do some time. The irony of both of their crimes is this - if Trump had never become President, they both might have gotten away with their misdeeds. But they did not, and it is time for them to do some time. Cohen will never practice law again. When he gets out, he will be dis-barred. As far as Manafort is concerned, I am no fan of taxes. But if I have to pay them, I don't want others skating out on theirs.
So bravo Mr. Mueller! After over a year and hundreds of thousands (or more) of dollars, you have a couple of New York sleaze balls dead to rights. Of course, that had nothing to do with your original charter. But who cares? You think you put a dent in the President's armor. But you did not. There was no Russian collusion. Never was. Hillary Clinton lost because she is Hillary Clinton.
Speaking of Hillary Mr. Mueller, how about focusing some of your efforts on peeling back her skin. What? You can't? Why? Oh yes - the staff you put together are all Hillary people. Silly me. I forgot for a moment how the Deep State really works. Mueller's team does not just put their thumb on the scale of justice, they have set their fat asses on it also.
Onward and upward. The news we should be focusing on is the economy today. We could (should) set a record for the longest recovery - ever. That is big flipping news. Not the news about how a dirty lawyer flipped on his client. Just saying...
