And this isn't even addressing Trump's personal assistant, who was thrown out of the White House by security yesterday, without even being allowed to grab his jacket, because of some criminal fraud investigation.

He won't fire Sessions because of the domino effect. In the end, Mueller winds up fired but he has the NY DA office lined up. This is extremely problematic for Don Jr. and Jared. Maybe even Donald but they haven't seemed to make that connection yet. Anyway, any crimes committed I NY will be charged by the state. Those cannot be pardoned by Trump. Down the road, that could be an issue anyway but firing Sessions which would ultimately lead to Mueller being fired would accelerate that.
Oh, that connection has been made a few times over.  The evidence is out there.  We don't know yet what Mueller has proof of, but the evidence is overwhelming.
They absolutely have obstruction of justice on Trump.  They have collusion on, at the very least, Jared and Don Jr. aka Fredo.  Mueller is working to find a connection to Trump.  One of the keys is that meeting on "adoption" that Fredo set up at Trump Tower.  Everyone knows that, as proven by Fredo's own email, it wasn't about adoption.  The key is if Mueller finds any evidence that they told Trump beforehand and he said OK.  The other connection is Wikileaks.  Looks like Roger Stone is in deep trouble over this.  
I still think, in the end, they have Trump cold on obstruction of justice (I mean he basically confessed to NBC News) but proving collusion directly to Trump will probably not happen.  Fredo, Jared and Stone will probably go down for that.  
The issue then becomes about what can be done?  Yes, a Democratic House can Impeach.  I suspect they will do that.  However, the Senate does not have 67 members with enough balls to convict.  So, he and Clinton both get to live with that stain of Impeachment. 
Trump probably will need to wait to Pardon them until AFTER the trials because if he pardons them before, it can be argued that double jeopardy does not exist and them the NY DA's office can charge them and Trump can do nothing about that.  At least Fredo and Jared can be charged because of what happened in Trump Tower.  It is unclear whether Stone could be charged as well.  Of course, this means that Russia never leaves the news cycle.

You can't make this shit up.  Minutes ago he was announced as the Senior Advisor to the re-election campaign.  Draining the swamp indeed.

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/03/13/trump-personal-assistant-john-mcentee-fired-joins-campaign.html

President Donald Trump's personal assistant, John McEntee, was fired Monday and escorted out of the White House amid a Secret Service investigation into serious financial crimes, NBC News reported Tuesday.

He has now joined Trump's re-election campaign as a senior advisor. Trump 2016 campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson is also joining the 2020 re-election campaign as a senior advisor.

"Katrina and John will play pivotal roles on our campaign once again as we develop a winning strategy through 2020 to Keep America Great," said Michael Glassner, the campaign's chief operating officer. "They will also contribute tremendously to our national engagement in the mid-term elections this year. We're delighted to have them back on the team."

McEntee, who served on Trump's winning presidential campaign beginning in 2015, joined the Trump administration after the election. He was escorted off the White House grounds on Monday over an "unspecified security issue," the Wall Street Journal first reported, citing sources.

Federal law enforcement officials later confirmed to NBC that McEntee was under investigation by the Secret Service for serious financial crimes. The Wall Street Journal reported that McEntee had problems relating to gambling and taxes that were an obstacle to his obtaining security clearance.

The news of McEntee's firing came just minutes after reports that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had been booted after more than a year as the top U.S. diplomat.

I have extreme conservative friends who think DeVos is certifiably crazy and cannot legitimately fulfill her role as Secretary of Education.

Come on.....she did not need any hatchet job....her answering any questions is catastrophe waiting to occur. It was on “60 Minutes” and the questions were pretty rational and should have been fairly easy to answer.
Absolute disaster letting her speak anywhere.

Yea, I know a GOP guy who has worked for candidates in PA and he says this is a disgrace. Still supports Trump though although he is "concerned". For the sane with half a brain, this is part of the necessary grieving process that occurs right before the split.

Can even the liberals here admit that Rand Paul has been a fucking boss this past year?  I've always accused him of not having the convictions of his father, and they're obviously different, but at a time when so many in the GOP are completely folding to Trumpism, Rand is one of like 3 Republicans who keeps trying to shout them down (albeit unsuccessfully).  After this past year, I'd be a lot more confident in voting for him for President if he ran in 2020.

http://reason.com/blog/2018/03/14/rand-paul-will-oppose-trumps-nominees-fo

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) plans to oppose the nominations of Mike Pompeo for secretary of state and Gina Haspel as Pompeo's replacement running the Central Intelligence Agency.

Paul's opposition could complicate the Trump administration's plans to replace outgoing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who was fired this week and will leave his post at the end of the month.

When it comes to picking a replacement for America's top diplomat, Paul says he could not support nominees who are trying to steer Trump in a more interventionalist direction.

"I cannot endorse his nomination of people who loved the Iraq war so much that they want an Iran war next," Paul says. "President Trump sought to break with the foreign policy mistakes of the last two administrations. Yet now he picks for secretary of state and CIA director people who embody them, defend them, and, I'm afraid, will repeat them."

Paul sits on the crucial Senate Foreign Relations Committee, giving him significant leverage over these nominations. If the committee's 10 Democratic members also oppose Pompeo's or Haspel's appointment, Paul would be the swing vote on the 21-member committee. If either nominations make it to the Senate floor via a different route (Senate leaders could bypass the committee process, Politico says), Republicans could face another close vote with a slim 51–49 majority.

There's good reason for lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to think long and hard about a confirmation vote for Pompeo. As Emma Ashford explains, Pompeo has been very vocal on policy, including his outspoken support for withdrawing from the Iranian nuclear deal. It's unusual for the director of the CIA to speak out on matters of policy, and Pompeo's tendency to do so might complicate the high-level diplomatic negotiations he would oversee as secretary of state. When it comes to other potential hotspots, from North Korea to the ongoing proxy war on the Arabian Peninsula, Pompeo is likely to take a more hawkish stance than Tillerson did.

Domestically, Pompeo has supported the expansion of a surveillance state. In a 2016 Wall Street Journal op-ed, Pompeo called on Congress to "pass a law re-establishing collection of all metadata, and combining it with publicly available financial and lifestyle information into a comprehensive, searchable database." He has also called for the execution of Edward Snowden.

Paul opposed Pompeo's appointment to run the CIA last year, saying in January 2017 that Pompeo's "desire for security will trump his defense of liberty."

Less high-profile but no less important is Trump's pick to replace Pompeo at the CIA. Paul says that Haspel's record on torture, which includes running a CIA "black site" prison in Thailand, should disqualify her from consideration.

Well, this is what we get with Trump. All over the map. At heart, he is a strongman who wants intel on all his enemies. So, these people make sense as his nominees.

To srossi’s post: I don’t always agree with Rand Paul but do respect him. He is more consistent than any of them. Not completely but certainly more true to his convictions regardless of party than the others.

From Trump's demeanor today it seems that he's finally realized he backed the wrong horse. He will probably try to backpedal on Russia now, but he is probably worried that Putin will try to kill him. Maybe Hulk Hogan's offer to backstroke him out of harm is still good.
