IT JUST GOT ONE HELL OF A LOT WEIRDER OVER THE LAST 24 HOURS
CONGRESSIONAL BASEBALL TEAM SHOT UP & WASHINGTON POST CLAIMS TRUMP IS UNDER INVESTIGATION
I have to let the first issue, the shooting of Congressman Scalise, marinate for a couple of days. It raises a whole bunch of particularly thorny issues. But the second one? EASY PEEZY! Heres' the Trump Team's reaction to the Post article that Mueller is training his sights on Trump's obstruction of justice and personal involvement in all things Russian as portrayed in a Huff Post article below. (Oh and as you graze through the following, remember these are the same folks who just a month ago said that Robert Mueller was the best thing since sliced bread. How quickly the entire Trump claque turns on a dime displaying Marine like precision as it pivots to meet the next Trump challenge.)
Trump-World Turns On ‘Anti-Trump Special Counsel’ Robert Mueller.

It’s only been a month since the Justice Department appointed him, but the knives are already out for special counsel Robert Mueller.
The investigation into his presidential campaign’s possible ties to Russia, the president said on Twitter, is being led by “some very bad and conflicted people.”
Mueller is a highly-respected former director of the FBI and is the second-longest-serving director in the agency’s history. He was appointed by a Republican president in 2001 and confirmed unanimously by a 98-0 vote in the Senate.
Moreover, like another prominent target of the president, he is a decorated veteran of the Vietnam War. He received the Bronze Star, two Navy medals, the Purple Heart, and the Republic of Vietnam Cross of Gallantry.
But those details do not appear to have swayed the allies and surrogates of the president, who have stepped up attacks and criticisms of Mueller’s handling of the investigation. In fact, the campaign against the special counsel is beginning to resemble attacks against former FBI director James Comey, whom the president fired abruptly earlier this year.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a Trump ally, on Thursday called Mueller the “anti-Trump special counsel.”
Gingrich’s denouncement of Mueller comes just one month after he praised the former FBI director as a “superb choice to be special counsel.”
“His reputation is impeccable for honesty and integrity. Media should now calm down,” the speaker said after Mueller was appointed in May.
Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to the president, called into question Mueller’s independence by flagging past campaign contributions from some of the prosecutors he hired to help him handle the investigation.
“Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair. Look who he is hiring,” Gingrich tweeted on Monday.
Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy, a close friend of the president, ignited a firestorm last week when he said he believed Trump was “considering” firing Mueller. He, too, questioned Mueller’s appointment given that he interviewed for the position of FBI director.
“I think Mueller should have not taken the position if he was under consideration and had a private meeting with the president and was privy maybe to some of his thoughts,” he said Sunday.
NOTE: And anyone wonders why us liberals and progressives grow increasingly frustrated when suddenly expressing the totally opposite opinion today than a month ago about THE VERY SAME PERSON is considered justified, rational and sane? But since we no longer deal in concrete facts but more in flimsy foggie fantasy fictions and such, I guess it's perfectly okey dokey! And Kellyanne's bias charge? Well, didn't Trump himself claim that he donated to both Republicans and Democrats? Yeah. I think he did. Something like "It's just the way it works!" as I recall.
It's all just plain nuts, that's all it is.
Take Care! The Mueller/Trump thing is great news! Looking Forward to the Great Chess Match!
