If Republicans lose out "big league" in the 2018 midterm elections, they could turn on President Donald Trump and might even make moves to impeach him, GOP strategist and Senator Ted Cruz's former presidential campaign spokesperson said Thursday.

If the House of Representatives and the Senate switch control from the GOP to the Democrats, Republicans in Congress would turn on Trump "to the point where they will impeach him, and they will get 67 percent of the vote in the Senate to impeach him, to do that. But it will require a wipeout," MSNBC political analyst Rick Tyler predicted on Morning Joe Thursday.

"When does the Republican Party turn? When they get wiped out. That's what happens. If they get wiped out in [2018], the Republicans will absolutely turn on Donald Trump," Tyler said.


Mueller, Making America Great Again

I love this high ranking post on a story about Nunes not reading his own memo

As Trump was stringing along his no brain cult members with his nothing burger memo, American hero, war veteran, and Bronze Star recipient, USMC Captain Robert Mueller was in the office at 7:00 AM Making America Great Again.

Opinion The Nunes memo is no smoking gun

If Trump thinks he could be going down, him doing a strike on N. Korea is a very real

possibility. He is that fucking nuts and desperate! I would not put anything passed him. I guarantee you he is looking for a way to start a war right now. It's probably exactly why N. Korea is making nice with S. Korea because they know he is a cornered animal and is capable of doing anything irrational to get everyone off his back.

Is it just me or does Nunes look like a deer caught in the headlights of a semi-truck

His body language has screamed "TERRIFIED" for months. Even Republican's were picking up on his body language 10 months ago. Snip > Is it just me, or did Devin Nunes actually look scared or nervous?? (self.The_Donald)

It reminds me of how the Roman's might have felt in the battle of Cannae after Hannibal's army surrounded them on all four sides:


What Ex-Agents Are Saying About Trump's Brewing War with the FBI

Some were stunned at the increasingly aggressive attacks on the Bureau as the Russia investigation inches closer to the Oval Office.
Matt Taylor - Vice News

Feb 1 2018, 2:51pm


It's one thing for the president to fire James Comey—a man who was generally supported by the FBI's rank and file—and pressured his deputy Andrew McCabe to quit, as Trump did earlier this week. It's quite another matter to cast a shadow over the entire agency and attempt to discredit an important investigation that's still in progress, as many Republicans seem to be doing.

"It's a deliberate attack designed to ruin the reputation of an institution that's over 100 years old," David Gomez, a former FBI counter-terrorism executive (and past VICE contributor), told me Wednesday of the GOP broadsides against his old employer. "It boggles my mind—I'm almost at a loss for words."


"Each side is ratcheting up," German, the former agent, told me. "It makes me wonder what they all know is coming."

Nunes memo centers on a 40-year-old law written to prevent surveillance abuses

By Ellen Nakashima, The Washington Post


Now, the House Intelligence Committee's Republican leadership, which plans to release the memo, suggests a politicized FBI and Justice Department abused the law to put surveillance on a former Trump campaign aide to advance an investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

"It's possible, but not likely," said Elizabeth Goitein, co-director of the liberty and national security program at the Brennan Center for Justice. "The warrant was obtained under the part of FISA that is least susceptible to abuse."


Goitein, a former aide to former senator Russ Feingold (D-Wis.), said the disclosure provision exists for good reason. "Congress needs to be able to bring information to public light when the executive branch is improperly trying to conceal it."

But, she said, "if the goal here were to make sure the American public was aware of the facts surrounding this FISA application, then the Republicans would have voted to release the Democratic memo as well."

"I ain't worried about the Gov. listening to my calls cuz I ain't done nothing wrong."

Remember when Republican's used to be all for things like the Patriot Act and the Gov. being able to listen to the phone calls of American citizens? It seems they know the the courts have some major shit on them so their only defense now is to try and say the law breaking that was discovered, was discovered improperly.

This is looking extremely desperate.
