White House threatening to kill political opponents.

sarahuckabeesanders03252019 White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders today threatened political opponents of President Trump with the death penalty for treason. In an interview today, Sanders said “They are literally, the media and Democrats have called the president an agent of a foreign government. That is an accusation equal to treason, which is punishable by death in this country,” she said to NBC.

The President said “There are a lot of people out there that have done some very, very evil things, some bad things, I would say some treasonous things against our country. And hopefully people that have done such harm to our country — we’ve gone through a period of really bad things happening — those people will certainly be looked at. ”

“I’ve been looking at them for a long time,” he added, “and I’m saying why haven’t they been looked at? They lied to Congress, many of them, you know who they are. They’ve done so many evil things.”

So now you have the Office of the President of the United States saying in so many words that he’s going to take a page from the Russian and North Korean playbooks, and go after those he views as enemies.

He’s been spending some time, apparently, studying the ways of Putin, Kim, and other despots around the world, and deciding their methods will work for him.

Trump sent out an email blast today, complaining about $25 million spent, and the two year “witch hunt” about collusion. Not a peep about the multiple investigations of Hillary Clinton by the Republican Congress, nor the money wasted there.

The GOP better move to clean up it’s act, and do something to reign in this madness, before Trump and party destroy what’s left of the United States.

These people are despicable.

 

That’s not how this works. That’s not how any of this works.

Mueller has sent his “confidential report” to the Attorney General, William Barr. Barr has sent a letter to Congress, saying the report finds no evidence of collusion between 45, or anyone associated with him, and the Russians in the run-up to the 2016 election.

In the report, Mueller says “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”

Naturally, 45 immediately claimed on Twitter, “No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!”

Sigh.

Donnie, that’s not how this works. That’s not how any of this works.

The Southern District of New York is still in the game. As are numerous state investigations. Not to mention the House of Representatives. You’re a long way from “complete and total exoneration,” Donnie.

I feel a bit like I’m in a crime drama, and the grizzled FBI agent tells me about this Mafia boss and his crime family and all the heinous crimes they’ve committed over the decades. When I ask why they’re not all in jail, the reply is “we’ve never been able to make anything stick.”  In no version of that show does anyone then say, “well, that must mean he’s totally innocent!” Well, the mafia boss might, but he doesn’t count.

Somebody on the Internet said Robert Mueller popped his head up out of the ground, saw his shadow, so now we’ll have two more years of this mess. I hope we can stand it.

We need to see the report, if for no other reason than to figure out how 45 pulled this off. Remember, he never expected, or really wanted, to win the Presidency. We need to see how Putin managed to manipulate the election, and how to protect ourselves from the next attack.

Meanwhile, Hair Furor will continue to scream “NO COLLUSION! TOTAL EXONERATION!” with every Tweet.
