Could you please just make a decision.

Trump on the “illegal takedown” organized against him:
It's a shame that our country had to go through this. To be honest it's a shame that your president had to go through this for - before I even got elected, it began. And it began illegally. And hopefully somebody is gonna look at the other side. This was an illegal takedown that failed, and hopefully somebody is going to be looking at the other side.[1]
Trump has done a lot of good but, on the large questions of his constitutional authority and the coup attempt he has allowed to proceed against him unchallenged, he maddeningly can only come up with positions solidly located in the boundaries laid out for him by his ultra-left opponents and these vague pronouncements:
  • The DOJ documents need to be released in their unredacted state.
  • “Somebody” should look into unlawful efforts to bring down a duly-elected president.
Well, Mr. Trump, guess who’s got an entire Justice Department at his disposal to take some concrete action. Why on earth do you settle on the language “somebody”? And why do you frequently choose the “deer in the headlights” stance on important matters? Are you ignoring the legal advice you’re getting or do you need different counsel?

It seems to me that Mr. Trump needs to don his Hercules outfit and re-enact the "Augean Stables" task, diverting the river around DC thru the Executive Branch offices, and cleaning them out completely.

LOL. An apt image. I'd be happy if Trump would fly to Delphi and summon up some oracle action. Whoever his war-time consigliere is he ain't cuttin' it. I still don't quite "get" Bannon but I have a feeling he was more into breaking furniture than anyone else who came after him.

I think the plan is that we're supposed to think this is all "normal." Like a boil on your thumb, I suppose. Nothing to worry about.
