And Trump always complaining about 13 angry Democrats (in OSC)

Would be so cool if it had anything to do with Strzok--something so incredibly validating and redeeming that even Trey Gowdy would say, "OK. I get it."

"Great minds think alike."
"Fools seldom differ."

Take your pick. I think the former rather than the latter. But in truth, I think that great minds "think different", to use Apple's bastardization of the English language, and fools most often agree with each other (for example Trumpanzees and Fox News fans).

Indictment expected for Russian intelligence officers. But the U S has indicted 18 or 19 Russian people/reps, and there was no press conference.

If this is what the announcement is, it doesn't related to the Trump team or Trump. It really is just about Russian interference in our election system.

Trump: "Help me, Rusher!"

Putin: "Hack DNC."

Trump, Jr. "We love this!"

Putin: "Send to asset Assange."

Assange: "Who do we coordinate this with?"

DOJ: "To be announced."

Can't help but say I'm a little disappointed.
Was hoping for Jared.
But I'll take it. I know Mueller is smarter than I am, something the GOP congress and so-called president are too stupid to see about themselves.

If so,would he try to stay away?
Would those around him basically take him into custody and bring him back?

Or would they wait until he got back?
