It appears Trump wants Mick Mulvaney as Chief of Staff, yes?
Oops...by installing a Senate confirmed official as CoS, it seems Trump might now be the first POTUS to have a Chief of Staff that can be forced to testify before Congress.

Mick Mulvaney is SUCH an appropriate pick for the Trump White House Chief of Staff. He's a pure a*hole, gets along with nobody, says atrocious things into microphones because he has no soul. Just like his boss. Where he is different, though, is that he is a fanatic.

POLL: Majority say sitting presidents should be subject to indictment

Quote:
"Seventy-one percent of respondents, including 49 percent of Republicans, said sitting presidents should be subject to indictment, while 21 percent said they shouldn't. Thirty-eight percent of GOP respondents opposed allowing criminal charges to be brought against a president who's in office."

Why was this poll taken?

The Founders did not envision any one person or group to be above the law or beyond the reach of the law. Any poll which asks if any one is, intimates the Founders thought some singular person would be impervious to legal imperatives.

you know ... you know ...

I recently had an argument with my brother (a former persecutor[sic]) regarding competency of Mr Trump to stand trial. I argued since he was a narcissist, he is irrational and would therefore be unable to assist his defense counsel in his defense. I had convinced myself the law would recognize irrationality as a defect which would not just diminish aide but rebut aide.

After doing some research on this, it is clear Mr Trump passes all the legal tests on competency (despite my belief the law is wrong on this issue). As to an age requirement, it would again be clear the law recognizes only chronological age as the requisite (despite the fact his mental age is in dispute).

Yeah ... should charges be filed, he is good to go for trial ... smile (that's my imprimatur)

Of course he WILL perjure himself in the first five minutes of testimony. So there is that. I think if he ever gets to court of sits down with Mueller, he's already lost. Just those written answers he sent Mueller probably contained provably false statements, since he thought everybody was going with Cohen's previous version of events.

My question is: Will Donald Trump, Jr. be indicted before the end of the year? Napolitano: Trump Jr. thinks he will be indicted by Mueller (the Hill). It's really no surprise, as Donald Jr. knows he lied to Congress, and that is something Cohen pled guilty to.

Do you think that is why Whitaker refused to recuse?

Since everyone knows Donald Jr. perjured himself, could that be leverage to get Donald Senior to agree to a sit-down interview?
