Folks, I'm afraid Trump has us over a barrel

He'll pick someone like Cornyn to head the FBI, the Senate will ram him through, and he'll end or slow the FBI investigation. The House investigation is pretty much ended. The Senate can fall apart at any minute. There will be no special prosecutor, or at least not a reliable one. There will never be an impeachment much less a Senate conviction. 2018, you say? The election fraud commission will throw more Democrats off the rolls. There is something fishy going on with the census. Right wing media is getting stronger every day. There will be no Republicans doing the right thing.

Some understood how dire the consequences of losing would be. Some did not fully comprehend it. Those "second" some are prepared to undercut efforts in 2018 "and" 2020 with bs. Weapon up and focus. Fight all enemies against our democracy. We battled hundreds of years to be what we are and have what we have. Don't give it away.

You seem to be suggesting that Trump has a plan... Which goes against the proposition that he's an imbecile.

All evidence is that he's just an imbecile who stumbled into the presidency because of a constituency that's even dumber than he is.

Jeff Sessions is basically over the FBI. McConnell is over the Senate. Ryan is over the House. They have the Supreme Court and that could get worse any minute. The people are lazy and ignorant and a few protests won't do anything if the above mentioned won't act. Like I said, the Republicans will force Trump's FBI Director on us. Who is going to level any charges and make them stick?

We have the courts and that's about it. Soon, he'll appoint lots of federal judges. The GOP is covering his butt. Traitors.

Have faith. Trump cannot stop another Deep Throat nor can he stop our allies who also have intel. Personally I don't think it will get that far. Trump cannot fire the AG of NY either. And state crimes cannot be pardoned by the president.

Because NY is the world's financial center, almost any crime committed with money falls under the jurisdiction of NY state. Even it it only passed through Citi on the way to the Caymans....

The NY AG Schneiderman hired the guy Preet Bharara had working on the Trump case. I would not be surprised if a number of interesting files accompanied him to his new gig.

We have every reason to be anxious about the moment. But there are also some indications that Trump cannot control everything.

It's also about all the careerists covering for Trump for their own ends.
