There were more investigations of Hillary than there are Ornaments on a Christmas Tree

Fascinating to have President Trump and Mitch McConnell warn the Democrats about not investigating the Trump administration.

Come again?

There were more investigations of Hillary Clinton than there are ornaments on a Christmas Tree. And they brought nothing. Zero indictments.[1] How many indictments does Mueller already have?

Then Trump threatened to investigate Democratic members of the House if they investigate him.

Come again?

Or precisely, here’s what Trump said:

If the Democrats think they are going to waste taxpayer money investigating us at the House level, then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all the leaks of classified information, and much else, at the Senate level. Two can play that game!

Alright, let’s break that down into its component parts.  First of all:

  • If Trump wants to check for leaks of classified information, he had better start with his own administration. That appears to be where the majority of leaks are coming from.
  • The Senate has no authority to investigate the House.
  • If they did, then the House could also investigate the Senate.

I realize I’m not breaking new ground here, but your President is an idiot. He’s been President for two years, and I still know more about government than he does. Sad!

And of course, later in the day Trump fired Jeff Sessions, or forced him into resigning. (More on that tomorrow.)

[1] All the “lock her up” zealots who want her in jail because Hillary used an insecure email server have a serious problem: President Trump uses and continues to use – despite being warned about this on many occasions – an insecure iPhone. There is reason to believe that the Russians, Chinese and a number of other countries have already hacked into his phone and are listening in on his conversations. In Hillary’s case, there is no evidence that her server was ever hacked.

A disturbed citizen and skeptic. I should stop reading the newspaper. Or watching TV. I should turn off NPR and disconnect from the Internet. We’d all be better off.
