Rosenstein testimony to Senate was profoundly disturbing.— Senator Jeff Merkley (@SenJeffMerkley) May 18, 2017
Hours after the announcement of Robert Mueller‘s appointment as special counsel probing Russian interference in the election, CNN’s Anderson Cooper spoke with Tony Schwartz, the ghostwriter of President Donald Trump‘s perennial best-seller, “The Art of the Deal.” When asked by the CNN host how he thought Trump was handling the steady stream of scandals that have engulfed his nascent administration, Schwartz delved deep into the president’s psyche: There is no right and wrong for Trump. There’s winning and losing. And that’s very different from right and wrong. And right now he’s in pure terror that he is going to lose. And by the way he is going to lose. I surely believe that at some point over the next period of time he’s going to have to figure out a way to resign and the reason he’s going to do that as opposed to go through what could be an impeachment process, or a continuing humiliation, is that he wants to figure out a way — as he’s done all his career — to turn a loss into a victory. And so he will declare victory when he leaves.
On Wed, May 10th, Robert Mueller was at DOJ (he arrived at 7:18am) and began informally acting as Special Counsel until off. ancmnt on 5/17.

Rachel Maddow relays late news reports that the Trump transition team warned Mike Flynn about his contacts with Russians, and the Obama team was so wary of the Trump camp's Russia ties that according to NBC News they gave only hours notice before retaliating for the hacks of the 2016 election.
Wisconsin What Happened in Wisconsin 3 Weeks After Election 7 Precincts with over 100% of Vote! That's Crazy!
I defy anybody to look at these voting percentages from PA and tell me how it was not hacked. 3 Precincts with exactly .6666667 for GOP.
See the astonishing results from Unhack the Vote!

GOP cheers, claps. Dems sing, "Nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah, hey, hey, goodbye!" in anticipation of Repubs losing their seats in 2018
BREAKING: House Republicans vote to approve Obamacare replacement bill, 217-213; bill now goes to Senate.
I have to believe it's all some kind of bluff. The GOP wins either way.
The evil GOP either do it and chaos ensures. We are truly Russia's bitch for oh, say, the next decade.
It get's shot down and they get to reinvigorate their base with a hearty we tried so hard and that damn Hillary, Obama, Democrats....
Paul Ryan's #TrumpCare is insane. If you get pregnant, your premium could spike by $17,000! This bill is cruel and immoral. https://t.co/L0ANGL9D72— Stop the Speaker (@StopTheSpeaker) May 4, 2017
After house hearing yesterday I feel like this weekend holds a huge diversion for us. Stay woke.
Rachel Maddow points out how the Republican Party has switched to full push-back mode on the Trump Russia dossier and the overall investigation into ties between the Donald Trump campaign and Russian interference in the 2016 election.
FBI Director James Comey says the thought that his actions may have impacted the 2016 election makes him 'nauseous.' Talk about relatable!
