I believe that today a few republicans will come out against Trump.

The threatening tweet did it. That is against the law, but it may take a few hours for this to happen.

2. I agree they brought this about, but

when someone clearly breaks the law for all to see, then a couple may take a stand. If 2 or 3 do, that would be a start. But who knows, but we will see as the day goes on.

6. Sessions is about to come forward at a presser...

(no faith whatsoever that he'll be the one who calls for an Independent Prosecutor)

Yup, we will see.

4. It's getting to the point ...




that some will come forward and tell all they know rather then be subpoenaed and arrested later on.

5. I fear that's not likely.

All of the ones I've read about or listened to are spewing out the same partisan bullshit, the official rethug line...that the entire Russian investigation is sour grapes over losing the Election and the outrage now over the Comey firing is just "Democrat hypocrisy".

I still have hope but being ethical is not exactly a strong point of most of this crop of republicans.

7. Except this morning's tweet isn't about Trump Russia

It was about Trump firing Comey. It was a warning shot to Comey that their dinnertime conversation had been recorded. It was a not-so-veiled threat. It was an admission of obstruction of justice.

There is a there there.

9. I think it will take more than this imo

If anything, they would do so silently (support Trump).

11. Nothing will happen, the right talking heads have gone into hiding. Fox news couldn't book

Right wing talking heads for the weekend shows.

12. I respectfully disagree...Something will happen.

It may not happen today, perhaps that was wrong. But I believe there has been a shift with this tweet that is really a public threat. But as it plays out, we will see. Perhaps something really weird. Like a direct apology from Trump over this. A couple of republicans, let's hope for 3.

13. It won't come from the GOP in congress or the senate. This headline is perfect.
