"Hitler Junior" Careens Toward The Hangman's Noose After Latest Performance

"When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America...America will triumph over you. " Twitter text from former CIA chief John Brennan after Trump gloated over Andy McCabe's firing before he could resign.

"If you really are innocent, and think there is no collusion, then ACT like it!"  - Trey Gowdy (R, SC) yesterday on Face the Nation

"I wonder where Republicans are right now in terms of showing some courage, not about party but about right and wrong." - Mika Brzenzski, 'Morning Joe'

"I think we're dangerously close to a constitutional crisis. I think the president is doing something that no CEO of a Fortune 500 would do. Can you imagine a senior CEO tweeting about one of his senior VP's "Ninety more days to go until his retirement! Ha! Ha! Ha!" And then the guy gets fired? They'd throw him out of the company. We've crossed that red line a long time ago."   -  Sophia A Nelson, former GOP Counsel,  House Oversight Committee, on 'Morning Joe' this a.m.

Picking up on the last quote from Sophia Nelson, more bold red lines were crossed by Adolf Hitler Jr. over the weekend ending with blistering and foolish attacks on Mueller himself and paving the way for this bastard's fat neck to be put into the hangman's noose. That is,  the total indictment on obstruction of justice compliments of Bob Mueller, a rock-ribbed Republican, I might add. Though fucktard Drumpf seemed to miss that memo in one of his tweets claiming there were no Republicans on Mueller's team.

And yes, before continuing, I refer to Drumpf (aka Trump) as Hitler Jr. based on a previous analysis I did comparing their mental and other profiles, e.g.

Most of us- and that includes former CIA chief John Brennan- didn't believe Trump,  though deplorable and detestable beyond the most f-bomb replete descriptors, would sink to the degenerate level beheld by the end of yesterday. Especially the initial vicious and vindictive firing of former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe .  But as vile as that cowardly act was (using threats to Sessions to do it or else) it was his subsequent gloating that roiled Brennan - and also had wifey screaming for Drumpf's head, e.g. "How could this piece of shit do that to an honorable man who worked 20 years at the bureau, destroying his pension?" She then pounded her recliner several times for emphasis while mumbling something about Trump needing a bout with "Neegan" and an entity called "Lucille".

Trying to provide cover for this illegitimate slimeball, the WSJ editorial today ('The McCabe March Madness', p. A 16) emphasized all of Drumpf's detractors (including "Obama's CIA chief Brennan") had missed the memo that the DOJ's own Inspector General and the FBI's Office of Personal Responsibility (OPR) had agreed on McCabe's firing.  (Maybe, but not 24 hrs. before he's due to receive his damned pension!)   In the OPR case, the findings were rushed and not substantive. Almost certainly, Jeff Sessions ended up twisting arms for Trump in order to get the OPR on board.

 This is  also definitely something Trump would have personally pushed for given he'd been rubbing McCabe's face in the dirt with such threats for months. (See the last quotation at top from Sophia Nelson)

Trump had  also applauded the firing of McCabe as a “great day for democracy”., which the same WSJ editorial had described as Trump "too self-involved for restraint" e.g. to allow the dismissal to "speak for itself".  But after defending their Hitler wannabe 'x' times they ought to know his M.O. by now;  he's an idiot asswipe,  a former reality TV con man and pseudo-billionaire who fancies himself a dictator a la Hitler, and above the reach of law)  So no wonder his infernal gloating was too much for John Brennan, who reacted to the unconcealed glee by calling Trump a “disgraced demagogue” headed for “the dustbin of history”.   The full tweet in all its articulate beauty and verbal precision is given at the top of this post.

Former federal prosecutor Patrick Cotter described the firing this way to the WaPo:

 “I would add that for me, and I think many former law enforcement personnel, it is difficult to recall any precedent for the kind of personal vindictiveness the action by the executive exhibits towards a career FBI agent like McCabe, except from the longtime targets of federal law enforcement, like the mob or drug cartels,”


'With those criminals, I noted that their hate was personal towards the agents and attorneys they thought were building cases against them. This move strikes me as very similar.”

McCabe himself didn't mince words in a statement later:

This attack on my credibility is one part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally, but to taint the FBI, law enforcement, and intelligence professionals more generally, It is part of this administration’s ongoing war on the FBI and the efforts of the special counsel investigation, which continue to this day. Their persistence in this campaign only highlights the importance of the special counsel’s work.”

To top it off we beheld Trump’s personal lawyer (John Dowd) saying -  in a statement first provided to the Daily Beast on Saturday -  that he “prayed” Rosenstein,  who oversees special counsel Robert Mueller, “will follow the brilliant and courageous example of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility [OPR] and attorney general Jeff Sessions and bring an end to alleged Russia collusion investigation manufactured by McCabe’s boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt dossier”

Seriously? Can Dowd truly be that  stupid, or is he just begging for an obstruction of justice charge slapped on his own sorry ass?   As one commentator put it on Lawrence O'Donnell's 'Last Word' Friday night, it's difficult to conceive how Dotard's legal team could be so rife with bozos and incompetents who insist on shooting themselves in the foot - including the turkey that is filing suit against  Stormy Daniels -  while admitting Trump was the "Dennison" that never signed  his 'John Hancock' to the "silence" (e.g. NDA) agreement. Which, as Sophia Nelson - former counsel to the House Oversight Committee- put it, carries no weight at all.

Nonetheless, the fierce words from former spy chief Brennan clearly struck fear into Dowd who proceeded to backtrack  saying he was “speaking for myself not the president”.  In other words, letting his mouth sign a  check his ass couldn't "cash".   He also  'fessed up to the AP how he let his bravado and beer talk run ahead of his brain, admitting he wasn't "really" calling on Rosenstein to fire the Special Counsel "immediately", nor was he discussing the idea of firing Mueller or ending the probe.  Who'da thunk? 

He added  the qualifier that the investigation should be ended “on the merits in light of recent revelations”.  But anyone who's followed this case, from the Clinton emails, to the hyped up conspiracy memes surrounding the Steele dossier to the role of Devin Nunes in leaking classified files to undermine Mueller, knows damned well the so-called "revelations"  are hot air bilge and balderdash. They carry about as much freight as the "Pizzagate" nonsense circulated in 2016, accusing  Hillary of keeping child sex slaves in the basement of a D.C. pizza parlor. Personally, I believe all the degenerates that circulated that inane tripe ought to be permanently hooked up to electro-shock machines indefinitely.

The firing of McCabe itself was a blatant effort to try to short circuit the Mueller probe by impugning the credibility of a key person. Its inherently vile nature was revealed in Drumpf's gloating over it and gleefully anticipating McCabe's loss of pension. As former Mueller aide Chuck Rosenberg put it on Morning Joe,  "It's disgusting and depraved".    This is something  so gratuitously vicious  that even Trump's putative steel worker followers ought to be aghast: being fired by a narcissist boss or CEO just before eligibility for a pension. It's basically near the lowest rung of the totem poll for human behavior with only murder, bestiality and child molestation coming in lower.

But thanks to having a sixth sense of Drumpf's  impending treachery, McCabe had the prescience to keep notes and turned all over to Mueller. These  included when Trump called him into his office and made snide references about his wife and Hillary. All of those notes will now join James Comey's in being grist for Robert Mueller's investigation, i.e. the hangman's noose. Of course, Traitor Trump is terrified which is why he's tried to dismiss McCabe's notes as  "fake memos". He should be so lucky.

Matt Miller, a former top Justice Department official in the Obama administration, noted that McCabe has already spoken to special counsel Robert S. Mueller's team and that he would have shared anything he knew about allegedly illegal actions. But Miller said that doesn't mean there isn't more McCabe might share — particularly now that he could file suit over his termination.   Miller added to the WaPo:

There are a host of inappropriate actions by the president that don't necessarily rise to the level of criminality that McCabe may feel obliged to disclose publicly now, It's very much in McCabe's interests to reveal any inappropriate actions by the president that he was aware of because it helps make his case that he was fired for political reasons. He may do that in interviews, and he may do it in a lawsuit he brings over his firing.”

"Disgraced demagogue" sums up the character of this piece of shit  with whom we're saddled  as "president" but also traitor. Indeed, just as the news of Andy McCabe's  firing was coming over the transom Friday night, O'Donnell had retired 4 star Gen. Barry McCaffrey on the phone, basically calling Trump out as a goddamned traitor. His words from his phone call:

Reluctantly I have concluded that President Trump is a serious threat to U.S. national security. He is refusing to protect vital U.S. interests from active Russian attacks. It is apparent that he is for some unknown reason under the sway of Mr Putin.

In other words, he's saying what we already know: Trump is a fucking traitor who deserves to be hanged.  But as I noted, in the olden days in Cromwell's England - demagogue or no - he'd be hung, drawn and quartered, i.e. first partially hung, then disemboweled, then each limb chopped off in turn - first the arms then the legs. Everything, including the head, then tossed into a huge pyre - maybe leaving only a few teeth.

The Trump backers may feel elated at all this and love that Dotard appears to be sowing more TDS or "Trump derangement syndrome"  but they'd be foolish to believe so. Indeed, as the weekend WSJ editorial noted ('The Trump Tariff Layoff Begins', p. A12):

"American Keg Company has only used domestic steel. But now it's being punished for this domestic sourcing as Donald Trump's steel tariffs have forced the business to lay off a third of its work force."

A third of its work force now unemployed thanks to their hero Dotard, who promised more jobs, not less. And that's only the beginning. This degenerate not only prides himself and gloats about taking away a man's pension, but also taking away thousands of his voters' jobs - after they put all their trust into his hollow word. Or as NY Times columnist Maureen Dowd put it (Mar. 17):

He is no longer bothering to pretend that governing involves a learning curve. Now he finds it’s clever to be a fabulist, concocting phony facts about the trade deficit when talking to the Canadian prime minister — one of our closest allies — or inventing a story for donors about how Japanese officials test American cars by dropping a bowling on their hoods from 20 feet up to see which ones dent.

One good thing we learned since the firing of Andy McCabe, before he could properly retire with his pension, is he can still get it back in full. All he needs is to work one (1) extra day in some governmental service capacity . I understand at least one Dem lawmaker is prepared to offer him that 1- day job.

In the meantime, serious citizens can certainly now see that every reckless tweet and misfire from this odious animated excrement will be another nail pounded into his coffin, if not compliment of Robert S. Mueller then via impeachment when the House is taken back in eight months. Or, as congressman Eric Smalwell put it:

Gloat now, but you will be fired soon. And it’s not going to be done cowardly, as you’ve done to so many who’ve served you. There’s a storm gathering, Mr. President, and it’s going to wipe out you and your corrupt organization all the way down to the studs.

"The magnitude of outrage over the truly contemptible McCabe Affair can be measured by John Brennan's reaction. Merely a year or two ago, could anyone have envisioned that a former director of the CIA would aim such a fireball of loathing at a sitting president of the United States?"

Trump will fire Rosenstein and then he'll have Mueller fired. And this will happen before the next election. The republicans will do nothing. The democrats will be helpless. This will be historical in the worse sense of the terminology.

Every politician that runs for office in November damn well better run on the promise of impeachment of this maniac.

Do you follow Jonathan Turley? That rotten sonofabitch is a law professor who's interminable string of articles are all couched in the framework of the democrats as the bad guys and Trump as the good guy. He's nauseating. He's not a constitutional scholar yet he's held out as one by the TV intelligentsia. I know constitutional lawyers (I'm a lawyer) and we all laugh at this guy's ramblings. He gets more face time on FOX than Hannity. There are two things faster than the speed of light. Shadow and Jonathan Turley catapulting himself in front of any TV camera to badmouth the democrats. This guy is sewage. I felt that had to be said.

I hope you're doing ok. I haven't been at your site in a while bc life gets in the way. I'm happy to see your working at a terrific rate.

I stopped with Turley years ago after deciding he was just a tool. I suspect your predictions to do with firing RR and then going after Mueller may be correct, But if it happens before the midterms it will be game over for the Repukes as that blue wave will be a tsunami - given all the pent up fire and energy to take back the House (which then will be the forum for Dotard's impeachment proceedings). As one TX Reeptard put it: "These damn people are so fired up they will crawl over broken glass to vote."
