Why fire him if it isn’t getting too hot and the noose tightening.

No innocent man would do such a thing. I can't wrap my head around it.

But do the republicans have any sense of morality anymore? He'll be gone after the midterms though I have to imagine.


Mueller or Trump?

Trump (after mid terms) if he fires Mueller.


You'd still need, at a minimum, something like 17-18 GOP Senators to vote for impeachment. That's a huge ask. I still think that impeachment is an absolute pipe dream unless Mueller's investigation reveals direct, conscious illegal decisions that Trump made during the campaign or after the election. I don't think charging Trump as the head of an organization that committed crimes even though he committed crimes (I can't think of the term for this right now) is going to be convincing enough to flip that many Senators.

Agreed. Feels very unlikely that they will take down Trump at this point, unless something changes radically.

The Democrats need to win in 2018 and 2020 in order for Trump to face justice.

Not necessarily; they could have had a placeholder article ready to put up quickly if McCabe ended up being fired (which had been rumored for several days), and someone accidentally uploaded it.

I don't know how it's a thing at all. They had the story ready, like every other outlet, and prob got advanced word of the firing due to their good relationship with the WH but slightly jumped the gun. Not everything Fox does is sinister.

It was right before the news broke. These drafts are common in the breaking news obsessed era.

supposedly McCabe won't be able to receive his pension bc he was fired (hours) before his retirement kicked in

Its all theater, of course.

McCabe is also maybe an argument for means-tested pensions for public sector employees. He won't notice the difference between his partial pension and the full one.

Zuckerberg's presidential run is getting off to a bad start.

Channel 4 in the UK did an undercover in-depth report on Cambridge Analytica. It’s really damning stuff and you guys should watch. CA tried to stop it being broadcast but to no avail. You have this company to thank for all this shit. Aka Trump.

I saw hints and allegations of that this morning from several British folks I follow. I'll have to watch it when I get home, though if it's anywhere near the interview I read yesterday it'll just make my blood boil.

All we truly are anymore is a bunch of zeros and ones.
