A Walking Talking Perjury Trap

There is no scenario where Trump walks in, says what he has to say, and doesn't end up being charged with some form of perjury on top of whatever else Robert Mueller plans to hit him with:

Robert Mueller wants to talk to Donald Trump. The President wants to talk to the special counsel -- so it's a done deal right?

Not quite.

Trump appeared on Wednesday to make a significant gesture by telling reporters that he wanted to testify to Mueller -- and was ready to do so under oath.

His offer came a day after it emerged that the Mueller had requested an interview with the President as he apparently begins to wind up one branch of his investigation into whether Trump obstructed justice by firing FBI Director James Comey while he was probing alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.

    "I am looking forward to it, actually," Trump said, before offering a preview of what his testimony might look like.

    I just don't get why people are not assuming that Trump has to resign when Mueller is finished with his investigation. Can he and his supporters be allowed to eliminate the legitimacy of the rule of law in this country? Is it really going to come down to this man having to be carried out of the White House strapped upright on a dolly? This is not some minor thing--this is absolutely the biggest political scandal of the last hundred years. This is a watershed moment in American history--are we a republic, or are we some crazy banana republic, run by a caudillo with strange hair?

    If Trump were a Democrat, he'd already be in prison. Of this, I am certain.

    Democrats Are Trying to Save America

    Never forget that Trump is a bum. A cheating, lying, stealing bum. He's the kind of bum that gives actual bums (who are usually down on their luck and doing the best they can) a bad name. He's a bum on purpose, you see, and that's the kind of bum that the American people want to see thrown out of office. He's never going to be presidential because he's just a goddamned bum, you see.

    But, sometimes, I think the media is worse:
    As Washington braces for this week’s expected vote to impeach President Donald Trump, partisan battle lines hardened on Sunday, with Democrats defending impeachment even if Trump isn’t removed from office and Republicans denouncing the integrity of the constitutional process.The Democratic-controlled House planned to vote Wednesday on two articles of impeachment against the Republican president, and the decision whether to make Trump the third U.S. president in history to be impeached was expected to play out along party lines. There is some d…

    Spoiler Alert

    Tulsi Gabbard is going to work very, very hard to re-elect Trump:
    Tulsi Gabbard has been slowly edging toward leaving the Democratic Party and, it now seems more likely than not, launching a spoiler candidacy to peel disaffected left-wing votes away from the Democrats. Her “present” vote on impeachment, followed by a disavowal of what she called the “zero-sum mind-set the two political parties have trapped America in,” sets the stage for Gabbard to play the role of 2020’s Jill Stein.Left-wing anti-anti-Trumpism played an important role in the bizarre 2016 outcome.Die-hard Bernie activists, fired up with anger at the release of DNC emails stolen by Russians that purportedly showed the party had rigged the primary, demonstrated against the party outside its convention hall and tried to drown out the speakers inside with boos. Stein attacked Hillary Clinton from the left, then audaciously staged a grift-y fundraising scheme supposedly to hold recounts in the states she had labored to flip…

    Trump Will Burn it All to the Ground

    It is difficult to see how the latest war in the Middle East will end. I don't have any answers, and, really, no one else does, either.

    Here's what people should pay attention to--this happened just as evidence of Trump's orders to the Department of Defense landed on the front page. This happened after the major holidays and just as we are beginning the 2020 primary season in earnest on the Democratic side (the GOP has decided to prevent another Pat Buchanan moment, circa 1992, from happening).

    Every life that is lost is because of Trump's decisions.

    Every penny that this increases the price of gas is a tax on the poor and allows people who regularly have access to Trump to maximize their profits.

    Every American traveling overseas is less safe.

    Everyone who cares about peace will be shouted down and marginalized because that is the media's job.

    Every attempt to hold Trump accountable will probably fail because the GOP is complicit in all of his crimes.

    Everyone ch…
