re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

ahh, here it is. don jr gonna go down for perjury

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...-investigation

Quote:
Donald Trump Jr and long-term Trump aide Roger Stone face a heightened threat of criminal charges as Democrats on Capitol Hill prepare to hand evidence to Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

They could be charged with perjury if there is evidence that they lied to Congress during interviews behind closed doors with the House intelligence committee.

The California Democrat Adam Schiff will take over leadership of the committee now that his party has control of the House, following victory in the midterm elections.

Speaking on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday, Schiff made clear he would be handing over transcripts which had been withheld from Mueller’s investigation by Republicans when they controlled the panel.

Then he can bang the drum about how he needs to be reelected in 2020 to continue the Herculean task of cleaning the Aegean stables, i.e., the federal judiciary, of liberal pussies. (He won't actually refer to the Aegean stables, because that would require knowledge of what the Aegean stables are, but he might well portray himself as a modern-day Hercules.)
*Augean stables. Aegeus was the king of Athens who threw himself into the eponymous sea when he thought his son Theseus had been killed by the minotaur. Augeus was the guy with the stables.

I don't think it's new, but adding in a national state of emergency is a twist.

Quote:
Sen. Chris Coons said Monday that President Donald Trump's shift from insisting on a concrete wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to a steel slat barrier marks a "minor but important" step towards compromise on solving the ongoing government shutdown.

Coons (D-Del.), in an interview with Fox News's "Fox & Friends," urged the president to stick with his proposal, made to Democrats over the weekend alongside additional funding for other needs at the southern border. The lawmaker called the idea a minor but important difference in technology, with the caveat that Trump has at times been inconsistent in his demands and rhetoric on the issue.
FFS.

Right, Chris. It's all about aesthetics. Changing from concrete to steel was a game changer.

Coons got 55% of the vote in 2014, their other Senator was reelected with 60% last year so it seems safeish.

AOC winning Miss OOT 2018 is amazing. The Coons thing is infuriating. The dems caving for nothing would be typical.
