As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

How the Deep State is Moving to Take Back the White House

Robert Mueller’s indictment of Paul Manafort for alleged crimes unrelated to the Russia investigation demonstrates that the Washington establishment, and Democrats in particular, are on a path to succeed in their effort to reclaim the election from voters by ousting President Trump.

Here’s how it has worked. The Democrats and the press went wild over allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to install Trump in the presidency, even though there is absolutely no evidence this occurred. One of the hoariest members of the Deep State establishment, former FBI Director James Comey, embittered over being fired, leaked his records of conversations with Trump in the hope that it would spur the appointment of a special prosecutor. Soon after, a special prosecutor was appointed.

Now, here’s the problem for Trump, and Americans who voted for him. Mueller’s indictment of Manafort proves what everyone suspected – that Mueller, another honored cog in the Deep State apparatus, will use the Russia probe as a pretext to investigate everything about Trump he can think of. I imagine he will find something that stinks. Nobody running a vast business empire has done absolutely absolutely everything Kosher for Passover, even if by mistake.

Vanity Fair describes the threat concisely:

Until now, Robert Mueller has haunted Donald Trump’s White House as a hovering, mostly unseen menace. But by securing indictments of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, and a surprise guilty plea from foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos, Mueller announced loudly that the Russia investigation poses an existential threat to the president. “Here’s what Manafort’s indictment tells me: Mueller is going to go over every financial dealing of Jared Kushner and the Trump Organization,” said former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg. “Trump is at 33 percent in Gallup. You can’t go any lower. He’s fucked.”

The first charges in the Mueller probe have kindled talk of what the endgame for Trump looks like, according to conversations with a half-dozen advisers and friends of the president. For the first time since the investigation began, the prospect of impeachment is being considered as a realistic outcome and not just a liberal fever dream. According to a source, advisers in the West Wing are on edge and doing whatever they can not to be ensnared. One person close to Dina Powell and Gary Cohn said they’re making sure to leave rooms if the subject of Russia comes up.

According to Vanity Fair, one of the people Trump is blaming for his predicament is Jared Kushner.

According to two sources, Trump has complained to advisers about his legal team for letting the Mueller probe progress this far. Speaking to Steve Bannon on Tuesday, Trump blamed Jared Kushner for his role in decisions, specifically the firings of Mike Flynn and James Comey, that led to Mueller’s appointment, according to a source briefed on the call. When Roger Stone recently told Trump that Kushner was giving him bad political advice, Trump agreed, according to someone familiar with the conversation. “Jared is the worst political adviser in the White House in modern history,” Nunberg said.

  1. So what happens if Mueller gets shut down by the courts?

    Greg Jarrett was saying that both Manafort and Gates can challenge the cases against them. Manafort’s indictment had nothing to do with the election, and Gates getting caught up in the same dragnet is arguably a violation of Gates’s rights.

    So if they dispute the charges because of lack of jurisdiction, and the courts agree, that’s it. Game over. Mueller’s investigation would have to stop, and anything he’s come up with would be inadmissible.

  2. Impeachment is “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors”, not – we don’t like you or your ideas. The offense has to be committed while holding office, not while a private citizen.
    Criminal charges of tax evasion or shady type deals might be found in anyone’s past, but even the Repubs won’t go far into Trump’s past looking for dirt.
    The charge of “obstruction of justice” has been bandied about MrTrump’s firing of DirComey, but it was Comey who obstructed justice in favor of Hillary Clinton. It was DOJ Lynch who obstructed justice for any number of people connected to the Clintons or the Dems.
    Every sanctuary city and state can be charged with obstruction for defying federal laws.

    If Mueller and Co decide to file any charge against the President, things will not go smoothly here in the US. Unless they can find a clear case of murder, forcible rape, armed robbery or other serious crimes, the special counsel should call it a day with the Manafort charges.

    • Respectfully, srdem, “high crimes and misdemeanors” can mean anything the prosecutor or Congress wants it to. It is utterly non-specific. Yes, they can impeach a president just because they don’t like him. All they need is even mildly questionable behavior.

      • If the standard really were THAT low, Mueller would already have been impeached for conflict of interest, Paul Ryan’s orchiectomy notwithstanding.

        And don’t say it couldn’t be proposed: the Democrats actually did try to impeach Ken Starr during the Lewinsky debacle, but by then they were already in the minority, so that was DOA. I think the only reason they did it was so it could get an in-full first reading for the C-SPAN audience.

  3. We’ll fight for what’s right as best as we can in the material world, but don’t save prayer for a last minute ploy, we need Divine Intervention right now:

    Thank you Lord for the privilege of this life and the privilege of this day, the privilege of growing in the grace and knowledge of God, the privilege of praying for all other people, for whom we are thankful, please work your good and perfect will in our lives this day.

    We thank you and praise you for our country. Thank you that we live with relative peace and security, and that we still have the freedom to speak out against injustice when we see it. Thank you for all of the good gifts that you’ve given us, for all that we have around us, especially those things we take for granted.

    Father we pray that you would give us a government with laws that promote justice, honesty and truth, bringing opportunity to those in need and having compassion on those who are broken.

    Father we pray that you would give us politicians who have clarity, integrity, and passion for what is right. Give them great intelligence to solve problems, but please give them great strength of character, to stay away from anything corrupt, or sinful, as well.

    Please thwart the evil plans of men, and expose the evil deeds of men so that they will not escape justice, and rescue from destruction the innocent, the helpless, the unwary, and the unsaved, especially those children and seniors who have been forcibly separated from their families, please work your good and perfect will in their lives this day. Bless and protect all who travel, conduct business or attend classes today, that they may do so free of threats, danger, and destruction, please work your good and perfect will in their lives this day.

    We pray that you would bring great healing to our nation where it needs it, bring about a generation who will stand against the tide of cynicism, to act justly, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with you.

    Bless all who love us and all whom we love. Bless and protect Donald Trump and his family, Mike Pence and his family, all incoming Cabinet Members and Aides to the President and their families, all lawmakers who uphold Biblical principles and their families, law-keepers in all branches of the military and in all law enforcement agencies and their families, and work your good and perfect will in their lives this day, so that they will lead spiritually fruitful, spiritually productive lives, and as happy, healthy, and long as you have appointed with your good and perfect will, free from malevolent interferences.

    In Jesus’ name, for His sake, and for His glory, we pray.

    Amen.

    • Are you saying you are going to be committing crimes against your state? Terrorism? Thanks for letting us know. Marked. If you could supply your name and address, that would be helpful.

  4. Here’s what the left and the so-called Deep State don’t get: They think the rest of us are just going to sit back and let this happen.

    Guess again.

    You want war? You shall have war.
