“I think Comey was the ringleader of this whole den of thieves. It was a den of thieves they were plotting against my election. Probably it’s never happened like that in terms of intelligence and in terms of anything else — but they were actually plotting against my election.” Donald J Trump June 16, 2017
The man lies knowing full well there is proof on film that he is lying.
Why does he continue to lie so blatantly? Because it works. His tactic of repeating lies until they are accepted as fact got him elected. And they keep his “people sitting up at attention when he speaks,” just like North Koreans do with Kim Jong Un.
I saw some unsettling numbers yesterday regarding this “Trump, Rusherrr investigation”:
- 59% of voters don’t know about the indictments & guilty pleas
- Mueller’s approval rating is, at an all time low, 32%
- Only 53% of voters believe Mueller is conducting a fair investigation
Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.
Let’s remind those people, shall we?
There have been over 100 charges filed against 20 people, and 3 companies.
- Mike Flynn, convicted
- Rick Gates, convicted
- George Papadopoulos, convicted
- Alex Van der zwaan, convicted
- Paul Manafort, indicted and jailed
- Robert Cohen, expected to cooperate
- Felix Sater, expected to cooperate
- George Nader, cooperating
- Richard Pinedo, cooperating
Then there are those who have perjured themselves:
- Trump Jr,
- Jeff Sessions,
- Eric Prince
For those who missed the news yesterday, Paul Manafort is no longer on house arrest. He traded in his ankle bracelets for an orange jumper, because was found to have been in contact with witnesses in the investigation… witness tampering.
Trump and Giuliani are now waving pardons in front of Paul Manafort before he’s even convicted, no doubt in attempt to keep him from cooperating with the prosecution. This is also witness tampering.
Paul Manafort’s crimes are both State and Federal, and State charges can not be pardoned by the president. I’d bet my tax cut (🙄) that Mueller is aware of this, as is the New York Attorney General.
But why would an innocent man need to be pardoned?
For an innocent man, Trump has put a lot of thought into pardoning himself.
New York State also has Trump and his family in an unpardonable net:
That the disinformation campaign continues to sway public opinion is mind boggling.
We are at war. Disinformation continues to spread unchecked. Russia is in the White House. The Kremlin has influenced most of the GOP, to the extent that they continue to push for an end the Mueller investigation.
Who wants to end an investigation that has been so successful in such a short period of time?
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Devin Nunes (R-Calif), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Orin Hatch (R-UT), Mitch McConnell, (R-Kentucky)… just to name a few.
They say it’s costly and distracting. That $17 million spent in a little over a year is distracting our dotard.
Many members of the GOP still in office, (like Mitch McDonnell and Orin Hatch), had the opposite sentiment with regards to Iran Contra investigation which cost tax payers $47 million, and the White Water investigation which cost $52 million. The duration of each of those investigations was 5 years. Did I mention those investigations were unsuccessful?
So, what’s my point?
We need to educate those who are unaware of Mueller’s success to date. Spread the word. Wake these people up. November 2018 is just around the corner, let’s not let history repeat itself.
