Emmy, Peach, Mint.

“I don’t think that Mueller would recommend impeachment,” says Alan Morrison, a veteran constitutional lawyer and dean for public-interest and public-service law at the George Washington University Law School. “That’s not his job,” Morrison tells The Nation. “Impeachment is a different process, with a different set of standards.” While it depends on what he comes up with, Morrison says, Mueller will probably issue a report outlining his findings and let Congress sort out the results.

Mueller is currently investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 election, as well as whether the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow in an effort to tilt the race in his favor.

The special counsel is investigating Trump in particular for obstruction of justice related to the firing of FBI director James Comey, as well as examining his role in crafting a misleading statement his son, Donald Trump Jr., released in response to reports that he met with a Russian lawyer offering dirt on Hillary Clinton last June.

Though the prospect of an interview with Mueller could pose a risk for Trump, who's been known to act impulsively in the past, a White House official signaled to Politico that they had no reason to resist a face-to-face meeting between the president and the special counsel.

Reince Priebus, the former chief of staff to President Trump, was interviewed for a full day Friday by members of special counsel Robert S. Mueller’s team, Priebus’s lawyer said.

Federal investigators exploring Donald Trump's campaign links with Russia, are now on the Trump money trail.

And forget the CLEAN MONEY!

And who hired the actors to clap and cheer at Trump Rallys? COULD IT BE?

Time for Trump to Come Clean on Russian Connections and Money Laundering

The House Intelligence Committee sent one of its members to Cyprus this week as part of its ongoing investigation into Russia and the Trump campaign, adding a new twist to the ongoing inquiry.

“Cyprus has a reputation as a laundromat for the Russians who are trying to avoid sanctions,” Rep. Mike Quigley told The Daily Beast. “It was extraordinarily helpful in understanding how the Russians launder money and why.”

About the flag... and mommy... and math

Trump is on record as saying:

“There’s nobody bigger or better at the military than I am.” “I know more about offense and defense than they will ever understand, believe me. Believe me. Than they will ever understand. Than they will ever understand.” (bullsh*t)

“I know more about ISIS [the Islamic State] than the generals do. Believe me.” (bullsh*t)

And, perhaps most disconcerting for South Korea: “There is nobody who understands the horror of nuclear more than me.” (bullsh*t)

Somehow I knew the "King of K-Mart" was a bowler. And, he spent 5 years in "high school." ([Sept. 59- June 60], [Sept. 60- June 61], [Sept. 61-June 62], [Sept. 62- June 63], [Sept. 63- June 64]) Trump received less than remarkable promotions his first four years. During that time, he rose only to the rank of supply sergeant while many fellow juniors were lieutenants.

One month into Trump’s fifth year (in the fall of 1963) Trump was 'removed from cammand.'
He was removed from the coveted post atop A Company and transferred to a (clerical) school staff job — with no command responsibilities whatsoever. He was moved out of the barracks and into the administration building. He was not popular.
Explanations vary as to what actually happened.

Yet Trump appeared confused about a longstanding military tradition on Wednesday night, despite his 5 years of supposed 'military' training.

While speaking with Fox News' Sean Hannity at an Air National Guard hangar in Middletown, Pennsylvania, Trump paused as loudspeakers began playing the tune, "Retreat," in the distance. This announces the lowering of the Stars and Stripes (retiring of the colors).

It's part of a firmly rooted tradition that predates the American Revolutionary War; the US military tune signals the end of the official duty day on military installations.

Trump's Vietnam experience is beyond question. (it is?)

His fight for equality in housing is well-known. (it is?)

His patriotism is beyond doubt. (it is?)

“Putin has no respect for our president whatsoever. He’s got a tremendous popularity in Russia, they love what he’s doing, they love what he represents,” Trump said. “I was over in Moscow two years ago and I will tell you – you can get along with those people and get along with them well. You can make deals with those people. Obama can’t.”

And his knowledge of the flag surpasses that of any academic. (it does?)

Trump REALLY knows what it's like to be middle class...

Dad only left him tens of millions. Donald's grandfather, Fred Trump, born Friedrich Drumpf, in Kallstadt, Germany, in 1869, had an estate worth $500,000 in today’s dollars when he died in Queens on May 30, 1918, at age 49.

His mom, Elizabeth, left him hundreds of millions.

Trump's father, Frederick Christ "Fred" Trump, made a sizable fortune by building and selling housing for American soldiers and their families in World War II. It was at his father's real estate company that Trump got his start in business. In 1971, he took control of his father's apartment rental company, Elizabeth Trump & Son Co., and later on, he renamed it The Trump Organization. Trump stuck mostly with real estate investments during this period, particularly condo associations, huge apartment buildings and Federal Housing Administration (FHA)-backed housing, all in the New York metropolitan area.

It is official!

It is as official as the "official visit" of the Deputy Worthy Grand Matron! (inside joke)

Trump is a f*cking moron.

Trump, following reports that Rex Tillerson called him a "f*cking moron" earlier this year, told Forbes in an interview released Tuesday that he has a higher IQ than his secretary of state.

Trump is insecure (about that, too). (He needs a "Watchman of Shepherds" - another inside joke...) There are a Plenty-O-Oddfellows in this world. Check out the "Household of Ruth" while you are on that link. Ruth wore a Fez?

Trump was making “a joke” when he challenged Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to an IQ test in an interview with Forbes. (The coward backed down!)

Trump's high IQ is a myth!

It is one of 5 myths the the Cult of Trump believes.

Because Trumpsters are SO simple-minded, Trump SEEMS smart. (He isn't!)

Many Trumpsters watch FOX (Faux Snews)

Trump's story has no happy ending. He does NOT resurrect the middle class from death by debt!

Far from it! He borrows against your future to give the rich a tax break!

Every Trump supporter needs a BTLE butt plug of their own!

even fewer friends

Seems Donald Trump just might be a "power freak."

He hides rejection with "I said NO."

Trump’s latest pissing on another Republican senator has jeopardized the future of his already failing legislative agenda.

The Tweet about Bob Corker on Sunday came just when Mr. Trump can’t afford to lose even one Republican, given his repeated failures on health care.

Under the normal rules of politics, a president would not poke a senator in the eye when he has only a two-seat majority, said Thomas Reynolds, Republican of New York.

Remember Trump's endorsement for Luther Strange?

How did THAT work out for Luther?

Tom Davis of Virginia said the split with Mr. Corker would undermine Trump’s influence with others. “Corker’s comments carry credibility because of his reputation,” he said. “There is an old saying in politics: Don’t pick a fight with someone who has nothing to lose.”

Trump said the retiring senator “didn’t have the guts to run” for another term.

Mr. Corker responded on Twitter an hour later, saying that the White House had become an “adult day care center.”

He then said in public what many of his Republican colleagues say in private — that the president is dangerously erratic, treats his high office like “a reality show,” has to be contained by his staff“ to prevent World War III.”

Mr. Corker, a moderate by temperament as well as ideology, had curbed his occasional criticisms of Mr. Trump for months, but has decided not to run for a third term.

Republicans made little attempt to hide their irritation at Trump for attacking Mr. Corker.

Senator Rob Portman, Republican of Ohio, said in a statement. “If we’re going to accomplish our economic and national security agenda we’re going to have to work together, period.”

“This was going to be hard no matter what,” said Billy Piper, Mr. McConnell’s former chief of staff. “Trump took one of the linchpins and incinerated him for no reason.”

The White House spent Monday claiming that Mr. Corker was responsible for the fight, not Mr. Trump. "Well HE started it!"

Mr. Trump has grown frustrated as legislation to repeal President Barack Obama’s health care program has repeatedly FAILED. He has open conflicts with Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, to name a few.

Monday, Trump went golfing.

BTLE enabled dialogue

Modeled Behavior

Example: Vice President Mike Pence walked out of a football game between the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers on Sunday after roughly a dozen players from the 49ers took a knee during the national anthem.

This isn't about the flag, it's about herding sheep! True Believers in the Cult of Trump are supposed to walk out of football games if anyone takes a knee during the anthem.

With his 'son of a bitch' comment, Trump tried to divide NFL and its players (He FAILED - again!)

Trump claims it was his idea...

Ever wonder where Trump got the idea? Manipulation.

I don't know about you, but I have my suspicions...

Speaking of Forbes...

In 2011, Forbes ranked Trump in an 18-way tie for 450th richest man.

By 2017, Trump tumbled and he tied with 19 others as the 544th richest person in the world.

Trump Has Been Inflating His Net Worth for 40 Years

Trump promised millions to charity but gave less than $10,000 over 7 years.

Donald Trump’s properties aren’t bringing in as much cash as banks that loaned him money expected.

That’s the finding in an updated assessment of the president’s net worth, which has slipped to $2.9 billion, according to the Bloomberg, down from $3 billion a year ago. The calculation, five months after Trump’s inauguration, relies on figures compiled from lenders, mortgage documents, annual reports, market data and a new financial disclosure released June 16.

When Donald Trump submitted financial disclosure forms to election regulators, he bragged that his portfolio included some of the “finest and most iconic properties in the world.” Among them was Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, Fla., which Trump valued at more than $50 million.

That came as a surprise to officials in Palm Beach County, where the golf course is located. A few months earlier, for the third straight year, Trump’s attorney had gone to court to argue that, for the sake of calculating his tax bill, the property was worth no more than $5 million.

Was he lying to us then or is he lying to us now?

The money leads to Russia!

Bluetooth Low Energy (scanning for butt plugs) can tell you when Trump has his head out of his ass so someone can talk to him! The BTLE device below may be the favorite among the "Chicken Hawks."

The Trump Organization’s net worth was a mere $3.5 billion, or one third of what he claimed for himself during his campaign.
