1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (196 sites): Palmer Report: Nancy Pelosi’s grandmaster chess game against Donald Trump

Robert Mueller is releasing his report without further indictments. He doesn’t have to. Mueller has referred out numerous cases to other US Attorneys’ offices for indictments. Expect many more prosecutions. Meanwhile, Mueller is still prosecuting Roger Stone, and he still has ongoing cooperation with Rick Gates.

Once the Mueller Report is published, complete with expected redactions for national security purposes, it is almost certainly going to be thoroughly devastating for Donald Trump. The report will prove to be, effectively, Donald Trump’s political and personal epitaph. It will establish beyond question Trump’s criminal collusion with a foreign power to steal the 2016 election.


Nancy Pelosi knows all this already, and that is why she has taken impeachment of Donald Trump off the table for now. Democratic candidates for president in 2020 will use the Mueller report to destroy Donald Trump. If Trump remains the only Republican candidate in 2020 then the Mueller Report will become the handbook, the Bible, that every Democratic candidate running against him can and will use — in debates, in advertisements, in interviews, and that will be a Bible that Donald Trump can’t sign. In effect, Democrats need Donald Trump to remain exactly, precisely where he is until November of 2020, so they can use the Mueller Report to destroy and defeat him utterly.



If the Republicans have any sense, and there is nothing to suggest that they have any, they would be drafting articles of impeachment against Donald Trump even as we speak. A lone Republican Trump candidacy, that is almost predestined to lose in 2020, may very well spell the end of the Republican Party as a separate autonomous entity, at least the party as we recognize it today.




Should the GOP mount a 2020 challenger against Trump, then Trump will probably remain true to his narcissistic roots, refuse to resign, and further splinter his own party, sowing seeds of destruction from within so devastating that the GOP may never recover from it. The only option open to them is to impeach Trump and mount a new candidate.


I generally don’t like to second guess the identity of political inflection points, but Friday the 22nd of March has all the portents of one, and a significant one at that. The only worry we have in the meantime is that Donald Trump is about to become a deeply wounded animal. And a wounded animal with power, particularly one as evil as Trump, can be very dangerous. Nancy Pelosi knows that too. We are fortunate indeed to have so capable a grandmaster playing for our team.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (196 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump’s Kid Rock incident on Mueller Weekend is even stranger than you think

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  



By any definition this is Mueller Weekend, right? We’re all sitting around waiting to find out what Special Counsel Robert Mueller has said in his report. The media and the public don’t know. The Democrats and Republicans don’t know. Donald Trump doesn’t know. Everyone is spending the weekend differently. Trump is spending it in a manner that’s strange even by his usually incomprehensible standards.



It’s not just that Donald Trump has kept quiet during the thirty hours since Robert Mueller submitted his report. It’s that his only communication with the public came through – of all people – Kid Rock. Considering that Trump is in South Florida, and he nearly always golfs when he’s there, we’re not all that surprised that he was out on the golf course today. We’re not even surprised that he golfed with Kid Rock, considering the D-list celebrities he likes to periodically trot out. What we can’t figure is why Kid Rock tweeted the photo of the two of them on the golf course, and Trump didn’t.




Think about it. If Donald Trump’s team put together this silly photo op because it wanted to give off the outward appearance that it’s (lazy) business as usual for Trump, why would they then rely on Kid Rock to be the one to announce it? Are they that tone-deaf about how ridiculous this looks? Even if this photo op was merely intended to boost the spirits of Trump’s base, without regard for how anyone else might interpret it, doesn’t this come off as weak even in the eyes of Trump’s base?


On the other hand, if Team Trump decided that radio silence was the way to go this weekend, and it was important enough that they convinced Trump not to be seen or heard at all, then why did they allow Trump to pose for a photo with Kid Rock? Why did they not bother to tell Kid Rock to sit on the photo for a few days? None of this makes sense. Considering that so little about Trump makes sense in general, perhaps it’s fitting this his final hours before the release of the Mueller report are being spent in such bizarre fashion.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (196 sites): Palmer Report: The big clue that SDNY is going to indict Donald Trump’s family

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  



Robert Mueller isn’t indicting anyone else. But we’ve already seen him hand off high profile federal criminal cases to the federal prosecutors at the SDNY, and now we’re learning that he’s also handed off cases and evidence to six other federal prosecutorial entities. The question of course is what’s going to happen to Donald Trump’s family. There’s actually a big clue in plain sight.



SDNY handles federal criminal cases that take place in Manhattan, and is a part of the Department of Justice. In contrast, New York Attorney General Tish James and New York County District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr handle state-level criminal cases that take place in Manhattan. James has said from the start of her tenure that she and her people would aggressively investigate and prosecute the Trump regime for its alleged crimes. Sure enough, she’s already had Vance bring criminal charges against Paul Manafort. But the timing was key.




New York State waited until the minute Paul Manafort’s federal case was over, then immediately unsealed indictments against him. Waiting was a way of keeping the prosecutions clean, even though New York had clearly been sitting on those Manafort indictments the whole time. This tells us that New York State is going to indict as many members of Trump’s family as it reasonably can.


If the Feds at the SDNY weren’t planning to indict anyone in Donald Trump’s family, they’d have told New York State this by now, and we’d have seen New York State move forward with whatever indictments it’s going to bring. Instead, New York State is still sitting and waiting. The most logical explanation is that the state is waiting for SDNY to carry out federal prosecutions of Trump’s family first – just like the state waited for the Feds to finish with Manafort.
