Re: USA v Michael T. Flynn; USDC for DC; False Statements to FBI; Guilty Plea

If Flynn will testify that he was told to contact Russians during the campaign, Trump's got big, big problems. If Flynn is only going to testify about things that happened during the transition, Trump's probably got a little bit more wiggle room (despite the technical illegality) - unless, of cours...

Re: President Trump

Trump will now be unable to resist counter-attacking England. Tweeting what a bunch of losers they are. Threatening to do... something. He just can’t control himself. That's only if he sees the response. I imagine the people around him will try to avoid that happening and I doubt it will get wall-t...

Re: Rex Tillerson

If Rex is out before his year is up, that will reportedly cost him about $30 million in tax breaks. Will that be enough to cause him to break bad on Trump? In another thread I was wondering how the IRS could act. Can they drop the taxes as the desinvestment (and the capital gain) was to take over a...

Re: The Disgrace that is Harvey Weinstein -- and Other Sexual Predators

Women do not have millennia of patriarchy supporting such actions nor a biological imperative to spread their seed as widely as possible. This isn't about sex; it's about power and dominance. Sex is commonly used as a means to dominate and humiliate another person, but the motivation is dominance, ...

Re: Mueller's investigation of Trump

I don’t think the Trumps and Jared thought they were doing anything wrong, I don't think we have enough information yet to make that or any other determination. That is an interpretation that is consistent with what we know (it does not contradict any facts that I am aware of), thus it is a viable ...

Re: Mueller's investigation of Trump

My guess is that the Trumps and Jared were all dupes. They didn't know that they were laundering money and being influenced by the Russians, they were just focused on growing the Trump brand (and their own narcissism). I think that's why Trump (and Ty Cobb) believe Mueller will clear him of any col...
