Timelines: Russia and Trump, etc

The ones at the link my eldest daughter just sent me seem to be quite extensive but please feel free to add other timelines, diagrams, etc that might help us keep things straight. Goodness knows my head is often spinning with the constant flood of info and I know others have mentioned feeling much the same.

Investigative reporters have begun to flesh out the Trump/Russia timeline. To keep everything in one location, hereís an updated summary (so far).

Impeachment of the president, explained (Source: Vox)

This seems to match what I learned eons ago so I thought it might be interesting and perhaps helpful given all that's going on with Trump ATM.

Like so many others I'd love to see him and his whole cabal disappear like NOW but there's a process and unfortunately for us it's not normally a speedy one.

"The history and logistics of trying and removing the president from office."

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2017/5/12/15615066/impeachment-trump-process-history

President Donald Trumpís firing of FBI Director James Comey has raised questions about whether he was trying to obstruct an investigation into his campaign and associates. And this, not even four months into Trumpís term, has led to chatter about impeachment ó the process by which a president can be charged with ďhigh crimes and misdemeanors,Ē and removed from office if he is convicted of those charges.

For the moment, this chatter is just that. Itís quite difficult to impeach, convict, and remove a president from office ó so much so thatís itís never happened in US history. (Two presidents have been impeached but acquitted; another resigned to avoid near-certain impeachment.) So far, we are not even remotely close to this politically charged process getting started for Trump, let alone actually happening.

But if youíre interested in understanding how impeachment works, the important thing to know is that while it looks and feels a whole lot like a legal or judicial process, in practice it is dominated by politics from start to finish.

Thatís because, rather than being run by any courts, impeachment and any ensuing presidential trial are carried out by the House of Representatives and the Senate, which are partisan bodies

The Russian Connection 🐸 - A new Randy Rainbow Song Parody

Delusional Trump says if election held now 'I would win by a lot more than I did on November 8'

http://www.cnbc.com/2017/05/12/trump-says-if-election-were-held-now-i-would-win-by-a-lot-more.html

President Donald Trump said he has seen new poll numbers that make clear if the presidential election were held now "I would win by a lot more than I did on November 8."

"And I think we're doing a great job," Trump said.

Trump's brash claims, which contradict recent public polls that show his already low approval ratings are falling even lower, came during an exclusive interview with NBC News at the White House.

"We had a group in the other day with poll numbers that were so good," Trump said in a clip that aired on the "TODAY" show Friday.

"That were so good, so strong, that if the election were held today, I would win by a lot more than I did on November 8," Trump told NBC's Lester Holt.


Umm... Wow... He really is totally delusional... unless... he knows Russia would 'help' him again.

FWIW - Info And The WHOLE Tumpcare Bill Passed By The House

Aka: H.R.1628 - American Health Care Act of 2017

ETA: Apparently the above doesn't include the MacArthor Amendment. Did the Upton Amendment pass too. It's here as well...

I wanted to see the exact wording on a few things and thought I'd share it here for others use, dissection and discussion.
