Harry Ola wrote:Trump cannot actually fire Mueller. He needs the Deputy Attorney General to do that (Rod Rosenstein). It seems he regularly contemplates firing Rosenstein, but this could set up the equivalent of Nixon's Saturday night massacre.

Bottom line Trump's options are not good for stopping these investigations and they are a lot worse than they were a week ago. Mueller passed on information to New York (SDNY) for the raid on Cohen's office (Rosenstein approved this). Trump has no authority to stop the investigation there and importantly has no pardon power over state crimes.


Isn't it the case though that the current (interim) US attorney for the SDNY, Geoffrey Berman, who, I believe, is currently now in charge of this part of the investigation, could be out the door in a matter of a couple of weeks. I know he was a Trump pick initially, but is Trump really going to want to keep him in the job after what's happened. Surely, he'll have him replaced now with some toady who'll do their utmost to, at the very least, limit Trump's legal jeopardy.

Trump of the tropics: the 'dangerous' candidate leading Brazil's presidential race

“This cowardly business of international NGOs like WWF and so many others from England sticking their noses into Brazil is going to end! This tomfoolery stops right here!”

Has Trump done anything though, other than angry Tweets threatening “fire and fury”?

I am not 100% up on the situation there, but it seems the Olympics caused a thaw in relations and the South Korean President deserves most of the plaudits if the two countries make peace.

The South Korean president Moon Jae-In made improving relations with North Korea part of his election campaign and was properly behind the Olympics stuff.

As if that will stop Trump claiming all the credit for solving the crisis. Big crisis, the biggest most crisising crisis ever, people tell me. Great people, including myself. Stormy Daniels? Never heard of her, she's a bad hombre and a loser, that's all I can tell you. Talk to my lawyer. No the other one.

Trump will claim all the credit, the Nobel will go to Moon Jae-In, Trump will add it to his list of Twitter tantrum topics. He'll blather on about how partisan/corrupt/Soros-loving the Nobel committee is, how meaningless their views are, how it was all him etc. I wouldn't be surprised if he tries to sabotage any peace deal at that point, so he can step in and fix it and get his own Nobel.

Probably, then he'd claim credit for Jesus' return.

Trump & co are terrified that Cohen might flip, apparently. Questions are being asked of exactly how loyal he is.

When it comes down to it, how many people would really be willing to go to prison for someone as shitty as Trump, who demands utter loyalty but would be quick to turn his back on you if it benefited him.

Considering how often Robert Mueller's picture has been posted in news articles over the last few months, you would have thought Newsnight wouldn't get him confused with the current FBI director Christopher Wray.
