On February 15, I wrote a post called “A First Of What I Expect To Be Many ‘Russia-gate’ Limericks.”
I was right. It was the first of many. And the plot has thickened considerably since February 15th. Flynn resigned, Sessions recused himself from any investigation due to his lying during his confirmation hearings. Sessions said he “forgot” and “misspoke.” Investigations are going forward and that means that Trump is breaking out the Roy Cohn/Steve Bannon playbook (which is eerily similar to the Hitler/Goebbels playbook.)
I am mesmerized by what I am watching on television every day. I’ve never seen anything like this before and it is hard for me to take my eyes off of it. It unfolds like fiction or a movie, but it is all too real. I just heard 45 say that none of his predecessors engaged the Russians in a positive friendly manner and “look how that’s worked out.” The last time I checked America is still The Land Of The Free. I don’t think 45 has really assessed the risk.

With all the fake news, rigged elections, tweeting and executive orders, Trump still found time to get himself smack dab in the middle of a real scandal – a potentially much worse than Watergate scandal. Now that takes some skill. But of course, we are finding out that he had been working on it for a long time. His first appointee gone over “a matter of trust.” That’s rich….and it led to this
