Here we are in February 2019 - Trump has declared a National Emergency to funnel the funds for his border wall, he’s just come off a ridiculous SOTU that contained more lies than not, and he’s just tweeted this:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump 2h2 hours ago
“These guys, the investigators, ought to be in jail. What they have done, working with the Obama intelligence agencies, is simply unprecedented. This is one of the greatest political hoaxes ever perpetrated on the people of this Country, and Mueller is a coverup.” Rush Limbaugh

But here’s a reminder he’s not one of the sharpest tools in the box.

My son has heard the same about Assange. He has a friend who is a producer for a show on CNN and apparently they're chasing tails unable to verify anything

Have not seen much (except Daily Mail reports) and mutterings about police gathering outside the Embassy.

IF there IS anything that is

That's plenty enough to give rise to a plethora of rumors isn't it?

Ooooh it's going to be an interesting weekend
I can't help thinking BREXIT might figure in the report too.

.... You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows, and you don’t need a special counsel’s report to know what kind of president Trump is......

I wonder what Mueller will do this weekend.

Can I just set the world up to record at the moment?

'Cos I have this scheduling clash where all the history is happening at once.

I could, you know, have half of Brexit, pause it and make dinner, then have Mueller et al tomorrow, then have some more Brexit on Monday.

'Mueller Report has been delivered on the 46th anniversary of the secret Watergate tape in which Nixon tells John Mitchell, "I want you all to stonewall it, let them plead the Fifth Amendment, cover-up or anything else, if it'll save it--save the plan."'

I think that's reasonable, Perking.

And many brew breaks.

Can't wait for Rachel tonight.

That Lawfare blog is good mental prep for the Mueller report, lionheart.

Because the nation still remains behind what the philosopher John Rawls described as the “veil of ignorance,” it is an excellent time to set some ground rules regarding how people should engage this material, regardless of their political affiliations or view of the Russia scandal. In Rawls’s theory, people should craft rules for how to fairly set up a society behind the “veil,” when they don’t know what social advantages or disadvantages they’ll have under those rules when the veil is lifted.

Lol. This is the pic on an advert on my MN app. I think it pretty much describes us all with the news overload right now!

Oooh. Mueller.

Meanwhile, DC is reportedly overrun with rats. Worth checking just for the comments. 😆

BREAKING: Mueller indicts Trump’s campaign manager, personal lawyer, foreign policy aide, National Security Adviser, and closest confidante for lying to investigators about the campaign’s contacts with Russia as they were interfering with the election on his behalf.
