    Trump is always speaking to his base even when he is overseas. Except when he was in China and had to do a 180 on his "blame China for everything" campaign rhetoric.

    ABC news polled Trump voters on the streets, almost none would vote for him again. IDK, is that sounding about right?

    News reports is that Flynn has cut off communications ties with trump because he is making a deal with Mueller. I think would #1 item that is part of the agreement is that Flynn can't have any further contact with trump team (nor via any form of unofficial back channels).

    If he going to flip, it has to be 100%, can't hedge his bet and\or wait to see if trump has a better offer (ie guaranteed pardon put in writing if he takes the 5th on everything related to trump). Flynn should be smart enough to know trump doesn't have his back.

    I don't think Flynn was ever on trump's team 100%. There is likely more to Flynn being fired than we currently know, more than not telling Pence the full truth. The reason provided seems a bit trivial given trumps's poor track record on telling the truth; it is like an alcoholic boss saying he fired an employee for having a drink.

    I still think Flynn is not the solution; Trump's tax (or non tax returns) is the issue as well money laundering, plus accepting foreign money etc. Unless Mueller is spending a lot of time by digging in all kinds of "side trails" and not concentrating on " follow the money" then it would take lots of time, while he should stick to the main money trail. If he continues this way then the end report will consist of 10,000 pages, while 200 pages are sufficient to jail the idiot.

    The reason to flip Flynn is because may he knows a LOT about trump's shady activities like the ones you described. If Mueller was just going after Flynn, there wouldn't be a deal in the works.

    Since there been no significant leaks from Mueller team, we have no idea what Mueller is, or isn't investigating. My assumption is that Mueller has seen trump's tax returns for the past 20+ years, and knows a lot more details about trumps shady business transactions than what has been made public.

    Mark you calendars for the first week of 2018.

    According to reporting by the Rachel Maddow show, trump has been confidently telling his inner circle that the Mueller investigation will finish up by the end of year and he will be cleared.

    This of course is information questionable because 1) the source is trump from unnamed sources close to him, and 2) Rachel Maddow is reporting it, paraphrasing\spinning the story the show's very liberal TV audience who only wants to hear bad things about trump.

    I wonder what trump attorneys know that is not public information. Assuming trump has reasonably smart attorneys, they will know far more about what his happening, AND, and are wise enough not to tell trump info beyond the very basics. Such as, they may know that Mueller, is, or is not, investing trump, and they are only going to tell trump some simple like: "Don't worry, things are wrapping up quickly; by the end of year you will be cleared"... all the other details not conveyed to trump because his attorneys know any detail they tell him will be made public by trump himself, thus just tell him the 140 character version of what he needs to know...

    Imagine what must be like to be a respected attorney with trump as your client, someone who you can't trust to tell you the truth nor to anyone else. And, you can't tell him factual information because he will twist the truth into some kind of misinformation contains a small percentage of key facts with vast majority of false BS from trump's short-circuited brain. Then, he publicly credits you as the source of it all, thus forcing you to explain to the press his version of fictional events (a bit like what Sean Spicer had to do 5 days a week)...lol

    Insider is probably the fat chick who wears shower curtains that gives press briefings, she's a one hit wonder.

    Flynn Pleads guilty to lying to FBI

    The speculation is that the plea agreement leads directly to the WH, otherwise no deal would have been offered.

    It will be interesting to see how trump reacts given he considered Flynn to be loyal to trump even after being fired.

    Trump as unlimited Aces (Pardon) in his hand, expect him to use them. Maybe not on Flynn, but on others who will consider a pre-eviction pardon over a plea deal. This does not save them from States filing charges.

    Jeffs Sessions is not feeling very safe this morning.

    Indeed. She will be out of politics with trump. She likely will be able able to make a living working for some high priced attorney that sus large companies on behalf of their clients who are well known for slipping on the floor of grocery stores.

    What is interesting about today's news about Flynn is that Jared Kushner is also mentioned in the article below.

    Since he was at the same meeting as Donald Jr. last June, the month of December is going to be very ugly for our tweeter-in- chief. If the tax bill does not pass for some reason, Trump would have to be led out of the White House in a strait jacket, since he would most assuredly have made the transition to complete insanity.

    As what? a cleaning lady? Her face would make a train take a dirt road. She has her shower curtains made specifically by Omar the tent maker, I do not believe she has the brain power to follow the law, let alone represent anyone in a courtroom. She's a ditz. Even Edith Bunker was more intelligent than she is.

    So, yeah, Flynn lied, and, I wonder who else he turned on?

    I read a headline on Google this am, said Trump has lost his mind, he must be doing some weird drugs, Acapulco Gold doesn't do that. After his latest rants on twitter, I'm believing now that he has been having a problem with bipolar disorder, he sure acts like it.

    Hang 'em high, all of them, for treason.

    Very good article by GQ with Keith Olbermann. He thinks Trumps days are numbered. The crazy mad conman may be in deep waters.

    News: Trump tweet, he knew Flynn was lying to the VP and the FBI.

    β€œI had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI,” Trump tweeted. β€œHe has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!” nbcnews.com/news/us-news/trump-tweet-su...

    Trump just torpedoed himself.
