Well, This Seems Like Quite an Admission

At least now he is admitting to what we all know.

    I’m glad Trump clarified, because as I’ve been saying, his ham-handed attempt to turn the tables and go after the investigators tees up the best possible case for impeachment. Not only did Trump obstruct an investigation into his own wrongdoing, he impeded and continues to stymie the investigation into an ongoing attack on the US election system by a hostile foreign autocrat.

    The entire world watched Trump kiss Putin’s ass in Helsinki. His own Homeland Security goons complained that they couldn’t bring up election security in his presence because the suggestion he didn’t win all by himself enrages the egotistical baby.

    Now he’s whining “Russia Russia Russia” like a demented and treasonous Jan Brady. This makes the case for bouncing his irresponsible ass that much more compelling because it’s not just about the past, and it’s not about one feckless clown — it’s about whether or not this country can elect its own leaders and govern its own foreign policy without outside interference.

    Yea, Trump had nothing to do with Russia helping him get elected. So long as you don’t count Trump asking Russia to help him on national TV and all the meetings Trumps children had with Russians, nothing to do with it.

    @satby: Is that a bad thing? I get the logic behind moving slowly in the hopes of lining up the votes in the Senate, but I think there’s potentially a lot of political value in having the Senate acquit him on a party line vote. The impeachment vote in the house would still do significant damage to Trump, and it would energize a lot of voters in Senate races.

    germy says:

    But is it really an admission or does trump simply not know how to construct an English sentence?

    When he says “I had nothing to do with Russia helping to get me elected” maybe he’s still trying to say the whole thing never happened. “A crime that didn’t exist” etc.

    Or maybe they’re just moving the goalposts again, out to the stadium parking lot.

    According to CNN, the stable genius plans to drag US intelligence partners — including the UK and Australia — into his bogus “I’m the victim here!” probe and plans to raise the issue of the UK spying on his campaign when he meets with T May next week. What could possibly go wrong?

    I’ve been skeptical about the prospect that overseas intel partners might become so fed up with Trump’s antics that they decide to dump a bag of shit on his head. Seems to me intel organizations here and abroad are focused on the important task of protecting sources and methods to a fault, i.e., so intent on staying above the fray that they occasionally lose sight of the mission, which is to protect the country they serve.

    That said, Trump may well be dumb enough to goad them into action.

    Jeffro says:

    @rikyrah: Damn straight!

    I thought this was absolutely awesome in the Post a couple of days ago: I Had An Abortion. It’s None of Your Business Why

    …My social media feeds are filled with the stories of brave souls offering their traumas in sacrifice to the justification for abortion. For many, there is a profound emotional element in the decision to abort. They confess every reason for their decision as if begging for forgiveness. Rape victims. Incest victims. Abuse victims. Unviable fetuses. Potentially fatal complications for either mother or child.

    My heart aches for them, truly. I believe their motivations are noble. But their stories shift the focus from how this argument should really be framed.

    What about those of us who aren’t victims? What about those who simply happened to find ourselves pregnant? Abortion doesn’t have to be motivated by trauma.

    I had an abortion. I’m not going to tell you how old I was or what my circumstances were at the time. I won’t mention whether birth control was used or whether it wasn’t. I’m not going to tell you whether the guy is or is not still a part of my life, whether it was a one-night stand or a long-term relationship. I’m not going to discuss the health of either party involved in the consensual or nonconsensual sex, nor the viability of the embryo. None of those details are pertinent. I got pregnant. I didn’t want to be pregnant. I had a medical procedure to remedy the situation. Full stop…

    I won’t tell you whether I’ve gone on to marry and have kids years or decades later. Whether I have regrets or whether I’ve never given it a second thought. The details are for me and me alone. They are not relevant. Knowing them should have absolutely no impact on the validity of my choice. My choice. Mine.

    I am an adult of sound mind and body. My government has decreed me capable of voting, of operating motor vehicles, of purchasing firearms, of paying taxes. Why is this irrational line drawn at body autonomy?

    A rhetorical question, obviously. Not all body autonomy is created equal.

    For example, as a U.S. citizen, I have the right to refuse lifesaving medical treatment. Unless I give express permission, no one can remove an organ from my body — even to save the life of another person. Even after death, no one can perform research upon or remove parts of my body without prior consent.

    Why do my reproductive decisions fall outside of these other condoned health-care choices? Control and subjugation are stories as old as civilization. Exerting authority over what I do or do not house in my body is no less oppressive than restricting what religion I can practice or which consenting adult I can marry.

    I had an abortion, and I need no one’s forgiveness. Nor should I need your permission. In defending reproductive rights, we should refrain from framing the argument around the most extreme and saintly of cases in the hope of converting more supporters. When we pander to find circumstances under which abortion becomes palatable, we dilute the simple message that body autonomy should be a right regardless of gender.

    Hard Drives Reveal Details on Citizenship Question
    May 30, 2019 at 8:59 am EDT

    Thomas Hofeller achieved near-mythic status in the Republican Party as the Michelangelo of gerrymandering, the architect of partisan political maps that cemented the party’s dominance across the country, the New York Times reports.

    But after he died last summer, his estranged daughter discovered hard drives in her father’s home that revealed something else: Mr. Hofeller had played a crucial role in the Trump administration’s decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.

    Files on those drives showed that he wrote a study in 2015 concluding that adding a citizenship question to the census would allow Republicans to draft even more extreme gerrymandered maps to stymie Democrats… The disclosures represent the most explicit evidence to date that the Trump administration added the question to the 2020 census to advance Republican Party interests.

    And he will continue to do so, as long as he is president. He is not a king, but he is the next best thing. He has hired staff and cabinet officials who disregard any oath to the Constitution in order to support him, and him alone. He is protected by the GOP leadership, which has willingly dispensed with all checks and balances in order to become un-indicted co-conspirators in his criminal regime. And he can dangle the promise of a kingly pardon to any underling who might happen to actually be swept up by honest Justice Department officers and convicted of easily provable crimes.

    Trump also has Fox News and the right wing media, which is eager to serve as his propaganda ministry.

    And Trump openly pals around with authoritarians and has sold out himself and his country to Putin in exchange for power and the shoring up of his fragile financial empire. In this, he is much like the English King Charles II, who would make noise about kicking Catholic ass in public, while in private he had signed a pact with the French by which he promised to support French policy in Europe in return for a French subsidy that would free him from financial dependence on Parliament.

    same goes for contraception. doesn’t matter why a woman wants contraception. women should have unfettered access to any and all contraception methods available and they should be covered by insurance. Full stop. no one should ever have to present their cases as ‘valid’ or ‘unvalid’. Sandra Flake was magnificent in her testimony. But her ‘argument’ was inherently flawed. she shouldn’t have to justify to anyone whether she is using the pill for the ‘right’ reasons. It doesn’t matter why; if she’s married or unmarried; whether she’s a saint or a slut. If she wants to never have babies or plans on having dozens some day. It’s stupid to let the other side frame the argument as ‘good’ and ‘bad’ reasons for choosing to exercise your reproductive rights.

    Trump is getting more batshit crazy by the nanosecond:

    Bill O’Reilly said President Donald Trump called him the night of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s statement on his report to complain that Mueller doesn’t like him because Trump once refused to refund a country club membership deposit.

    O’Reilly called into Bernie and Sid in the Morning with Bernard McGuirk and Sid Rosenberg Thursday to relay the story of Trump calling him Wednesday night.

    “President Trump called me last night around 11 o’clock,” O’Reilly said, noting the call was also about research for his upcoming book on Trump.

    “He wouldn’t give him his deposit back for a country club membership that Trump owned and Mueller was moving,” O’Reilly said. “Mueller wanted $15,000 back and Trump said no.”

    O’Reilly also claimed that Trump told him that Mueller lobbied for the job of FBI director after James Comey was fired. “Trump says Mueller didn’t like him because he turned him down to be the head of the FBI after he fired Comey. The president says that Mueller lobbied for the job and Trump turned him down.”

    @Betty Cracker:

    According to CNN, the stable genius plans to drag US intelligence partners — including the UK and Australia — into his bogus “I’m the victim here!” probe and plans to raise the issue of the UK spying on his campaign when he meets with T May next week. What could possibly go wrong?

    Which jackass advisor is goading him into doing that? Or, more likely, why are they letting the Mad King decide to do something so incredibly stupid? THEY KNOW EVERYTHING. THEY KNOW HOW HE GOT HERE. And they also realize that their dealing with a guy pulled off getting into the highest office in the land despite/because of being a foreign agent and all out criminal.

    Seriously, if I were part of the IC agencies in the UK or Australia, I’d be all “bring it on, Chuckles McDimwit. WE KNOW EVERYTHING.”

    At least now he is admitting to what we all know.

    As that Caliendo dude once said about Bush II:

    There’s two kinds of words: Inside Words and Outside Words.
    Inside Words stay in, Outside Words come out – that time a Inside Word popped out!

    So he acknowledges Russia interfered in our election but he is opposed to doing anything to prevent them from interfering again. Same for all the GOP members of Congress. How is this not impeachable for all of them?????

    @MomSense: It is. Now posit to the commentariat the mechanism where these fine upstanding Americans are convicted of anything or pay any price whatsoever for their misdeeds. Or hell, where this ends in a result where they can’t say they were fully exonerated.

    No one could have predicted that this scandal would go:
    Russia didn’t interfere.
    Okay, they did, but not for either candidate.
    Okay, they did, for Trump, but he didn’t *know*.
    Okay, he knew, but he didn’t *encour(loud meaty sound as heads explode before the word finishes).
    Look, so he knew it, encouraged it, and was seeking a bribe from Putin for 300 mill. What’s *wrong* with that?

    This is the only honest thing Trump has ever said, and it’s coupled with a lie. Of course he was involved.

    @TenguPhule: lol. LEGAL methods, my man. We all are quite aware of your preferred solution, which even you must admit is a step that Americans will just never take. We’re too fucking fat and lazy.

    Fifty years down the line, when God Emperor Barron Trump is taking all the food from California to feed the Deep South, well, maybe some American citizens will get off the couch and implement “Plan TenguPhule”. Maybe.

    @The Moar You Know:

    What comes after is exactly the problem. McConnell, GOP Senate Traitory Leader, has already said the Senate will quash impeachment if the House impeached trump. Obviously they would do the same with themselves.

    At this point I’m educating myself on the Mueller Report, and putting my faith in Nancy Smash. She’s the best we have and we have to support her.

    I’m thinking of starting a small Mueller Report study group – like a book club with snacks and beverages. Then maybe an impeachment study group. We could always try one here on B-J.

    I also wrote to my Senator to ask her if she’s read it and for comment. I doubt I’ll hear back for several months.

    Is this worse than Trump’s declaration that Mueller’s real motive in undermining Trump was because he didn’t get “that FBI job”? I don’t think so. My head is still exploded from hearing that clip while I was working. I may never recover.
