Rob’s Weekly Wrap-up 02/15-02/22

This week started with much ado about Trump’s Fake Emergency followed by the stark midweek revelation from Andrew McCabe that trump is a suspected enemy agent, at best, unwitting. In the meantime North Carolina gets a new congressional election, the FBI arrested a violent white supremacist for planning to unleash a chemical weapons attack against everyone on Trump’s political hit list, a judge gagged Roger Stone and Robert Mueller is and is not soon to release his report on #TrumpRussia, maybe.

On a personal note, therapy is rough as I come to terms with the years I lost to my illness.

Rob’s News Wrap Up 01/18-01/25

“Michael Cohen feels like his personal safety has been threatened by President Trump, that’s the kind of anxiety known only by every other person on the planet.” Stephen Colbert

In the last 48 hours, we’ve had a year’s worth of news; this is a big collection of videos.

The standoff between House Democrats and Trump’s lickspittles in the Senate
was a focus of coverage.

Michael Cohen credibly accused of Trump of witness tampering but this got lost
in coverage of the #TrumpShutdown.

Friday we woke to news of the indictment and arrest of Roger Stone.

Read Mueller’s Indictment of Stone on LawFare

This was followed by Trump’s capitulation to Nancy Pelosi and the end of
a month long shutdown of the Federal Government.

Trump got no funding for his racist wall.

I’ve added Steven Colbert to the list because I think his political monologues are brilliant.

On a personal note, I’m coming out of a lengthy funk, and feeling good.

THE TRUMP RESISTANCE PLAN: STEP 5 – “PRESIDENTIAL CORRUPTION MATTERS”

from Steven J. Harper, Esq.

The Belly of the Beast

[This article first appeared on billmoyers.com on March 10, 2017. It’s the seventh in my series. You can read the earlier installments here.]

“The present state of America is truly alarming to every man who is capable of reflection.”

— Thomas Paine, Common Sense (1776)

Paine’s line should resonate with former White House attorney Fred Fielding. As deputy and associate counsel to President Richard Nixon during Watergate, he witnessed the truly alarming spectacle of a president undermining the office’s integrity. Donald Trump must be giving Fred Fielding unpleasant flashbacks. All of Trump’s scandals – from Russia to his business conflicts – are on track to coalesce in the definitive crisis for American democracy.

About Those Conflicts

As foreign countries seek to curry Trump’s favor, his Washington, D.C. hotel gets the most attention. But it’s a symbol of larger problems. Trump’s business holdings rumble beneath every…
