Anybody want to guess exactly how angry 45 is right now?

That can't be good for a fat, old, out of shape man.

Does anyone know of this would apply to Flynn?

Rule: The U.S. Constitution prohibits retired military personnel and reservists from receiving pay from foreign governments without Congressional authorization. This can extend to receipt of pay from a U.S. contractor or subcontractor for providing services to a foreign government. In 37 U.S.C. 908, Congress authorizes the Secretary of State and Secretary of the appropriate Military Department to approve such receipt of pay. Each military service has implementing directives. Retired personnel and reservists who violate this Constitutional proscription may forfeit pay equal in amount to their foreign pay.

Just wondering.

When, not if, when we get back in power

The first thing we do is shove single payer health care down the repubs throats and be done with it. Health care is a right. Stop treating it like an industry and there will be more than enough money to pay for actual care. Economically, it is much cheaper to keep people healthy then wait till someone has to call 911 and haul them off in an ambulance.

Another Sessions theory

Donnie - Hey, Beau if I make you AG you'll help out an old friend, right?
Beau- What are friends for?

Sessions then intentionally lies about Russian contacts so he can recuse himself. Sessions gets to be AG. He will have to deal with some fall out but he doesn't have to worry about that whole Russia mess and he can tell Donnie it's not his fault.
