Donald Trump and the Nightmare Before Halloween

It's the weekend before Halloween, and Donald Trump has been looking more orange than ever.

Trying to convince Americans that he's not afraid of Bob Mueller's investigation into Russia's involvement in the 2016 election.

And that Hillary Clinton should be the one trembling in her boots.

But sadly for Trump, Bob Mueller doesn't seem to agree.

And now Trump is the one trembling in his straitjacket. 

A federal grand jury in Washington on Friday approved the first charges in the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to sources briefed on the matter. 

The charges are still sealed under orders from a federal judge. Plans were prepared Friday for anyone charged to be taken into custody as soon as Monday, the sources said.

But still trying to claim that if anyone should be charged it's Clinton.

And that's ominous because it suggests that Trump and his Republican mob are getting ready to fire Mueller.   

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is facing a fresh round of calls from conservative critics for his resignation from the Russia collusion probe, amid revelations that have called into question the FBI’s own actions and potentially Mueller’s independence.

Which would set off a constitutional crisis the likes of which has not been seen in Washington since Richard Nixon fired Archibald Cox, the special prosecutor investigating the Watergate scandal.

And caused such an uproar Nixon was soon forced to resign.

Will history repeat itself?

Or will Trump take us all down with him?

Stay tuned everybody, It's Mueller time in America.

And it could be a Halloween to remember...

    Hopefully if the Trumpenreich goes down, it'll be a bigly yuge symbolic blow that takes with it all the RWNJ parties clinging to their rapidly sinking anchor. Europe's fascists like the AfD and Front National, and of course Canada's atrocious Scheer Insanity party.

    What I wouldn't give to see the whole lot of them in exile, and the light finally shine for liberal democracy again. This time we absolutely must have an international de-Nazification process in all Western democracies that prevents hate from springing eternal. As Yoda might say, ever vigilant against the dark side we must be.

    1. hi anon...I don't think this first Mueller moment will take down the Trumpenreich, but just the sound of shells falling on the the Reichstag will probably drive Hair Trump over the deep end. And I for one intend to enjoy every moment...

  2. The Russians did it argument never made any sense, and while a Grand Jury can indict a ham sandwich, the great ham will be untouched.

    1. I agree re the election meddling but the investigation seems to have extended to financial matters and that leaves Trump totally exposed. My bet is that he or his organizations have been laundering money from Russia and the 'stans by the truck load.

      He may well have had a relationship with Putin, albeit at long distance (Putin does have standards), but as a bagman not as a politician.

      There is a strong rumour that the Turkmenistan hotel deal was washing money for the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. From what we have seen of Trump he may not have even asked where the money was coming from, let alone do some real due diligence.

    2. hi Steve...I suspect these first charges will have to do with Manafort's dealings in the Ukraine, and money laundering and stuff like that. But still it will be a great shock to the Trump regime, and the Big Ham will go so crazy, they will have to carry him off in a sandwich...

    3. hi jrkrideau...yes, I'm pretty sure it will be something like that, and I can only pray that it will have something to do with laundering money for the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. For they're under a lot of pressure from the Mullahs in Iran these days, and that would just about finish them off. As well as finishing off Trump's attempts to kill the nuclear deal. On the other hand, as I suggested in my post, now would also be the time for Trump to distract us, and start a war with North Korea...

    The Trump propaganda machine's attempt to blame Hillary Clinton is truly frightening. We are living in Orwell's 1984, except that thanks to social media there is no escaping the big lies that come at us from every direction. I see the same thing happening in Canada, and I fear for our future.

    1. hi anon...yes it is frightening, and the fact that it is such an organized campaign, makes me wonder whether Trump is preparing to fire Mueller. For if he does anything could happen, and I fear for us all...

    I'm guessing Manafort at least will be charged though how sweet it would be to see Trump led away in 'cuffs. Either way this puts his "Russian Hoax/Witch Hunt" talking points to shame and will ensure that his days ahead will be one giant catagory 5 shitstorm because this is just the beginning.

    1. hi JD...stop teasing me with visions of Trump being led away in handcuffs. ;) I'm trying to be realistic so I won't be too disappointed. But yes, I can hardly wait to see how Trump reacts to the charges, because his reaction will be what probably determines whether he will be impeached or not. Fasten your seatbelt it's going to be quite a ride...

  5. The Republicans of the Nixon era were much different from the current crop of Republicans.

  6. hi e.a.f...yes it's amazing how Trump is even making the Nixon gang look good by comparison. Nixon had a few good qualities, like the time when he refused to contest Kennedy's victory over him, although he had many good reasons to do so. And at least he had some notion of the difference between good and evil, while Trump and his gang have none. The American political system has descended into a sewer, and I have no idea how it is going to get out...
