"This is one of the misconceptions about the White House counsel's office. Don represents the institution. What is going on with Russia and Mueller are matters involving Trump in his personal capacity," said one informal but frequent adviser to the White House. "I am not sure the president completely understands how these roles are segregated."
TBF, he's new to this.

Yeah.

Long ago: comey lies
Yesterday: wasn't trying influence comey

The crowd that voted for a guy with few clear policies other than "Build the wall!" thinks its funny that the planning is still in the goofing around phase.

There needs to be a prankster subculture focused on posing as Fox News experts, like an upgrade of the Howard Stern fans who would call in to shows.

Steve Jobs was also reportedly adamant about the screen not being bigger, on the principle that everybody should be able to reach the whole screen with one hand.

A former MI6 agent, Christopher Steele, asked his contacts for material on Trump and they said there's a piss tape (along the lines el jefe described).

Politics and Current Events / Re: Sessions
So how do consequences of perjury in a senate hearing work? Must a majority of senators agree to sanction Sessions or would it be in hands of a prosecutor and a court?

ETA: Can he beat Alberto "I don't recall" Gonzales' record in uninformativeness?

Greenwald is incredibly annoying in not admitting any kind of Russian interference evidence short of a single piece of self-contained, definitive, exhaustive proof. Insofar as he is shutting up to avoid helping the prosecution of the NSA leaker, I have to respect that, though.

Some interesting parallels between Comey's firing and Preet  Bharara's

Thing about Bharara is though that it's pretty much bog standard for an incoming administration to fire all the US attorneys and put their own candidates in those positions.
How many have been retained and replaced, respectively?
Zero.

Zero.

Oh and how many replacements nominated? Maybe you can guess?
lol, I should've figured out that he'd do it the Trump way.

Even Trump's supporters understand he'd lie his ass off if he testifies.
