Investigate the S.O.B.

Is he beginning to act like a cornered rat?

Only in Donald Trump’s world of double-speak and garble-think could a decisive loss of a majority in the House of Representatives be considered a victory. But up is down and out is in when you visit the world of Trump. Right after the election results revealed he had lost the House of Representatives he tweeted:
“Received so many Congratulations from so many on our Big Victory last night, including from foreign nations (friends) that were waiting me out, and hoping, on Trade Deals. Now we can all get back to work and get things done!3:21 AM - 7 Nov 2018”
However, Trump may not be feeling as victorious as he lets on. Something about the Democratic House majority scares the living crap out of Trump. What do you suppose it could be?

The New York Times reports: 
But even as he claimed victory, he quickly went on offense against the newly elected Democratic House, threatening to retaliate if the opposition uses its new subpoena power to investigate him for corruption and obstruction of justice in an early foreshadowing of the bitter partisan warfare that could dominate the next two years. 
“If the Democrats think they are going to waste Taxpayer Money investigating us at the House level, then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of Classified Information, and much else, at the Senate level,” he wrote. “Two can play that game!”
If Trump has nothing to hide — if he is covering up nothing rank and criminal  — he could blithely let the Dems waste their precious time investigating to their heart’s content. The fact that, before the new Congress even finds its seats in the House, he’s threatening a counter-investigation if anyone dares investigate him reeks with the rank aroma of fear. 

His behavior merely adds to the growing stink of criminality in the White House. Foreign emoluments are already way out in the open, from foreign diplomats making certain to stay at Trump hotels, to China’s licensing of Ivanka’s trademarks.  The question is, what lies hidden under the rocks — and inside Trump’s thus-far secret tax returns?

There’s only one way to find out. It’s time for a House investigation.

And then he fired Jeff Sessions. A few hours after I posted the first part of this piece, Trump fired Jeff Sessions, his attorney general. It's clear what Trump is after — an end to special counsel Muller's investigation of collusion with the Russians — and other matters that for all we know range from bribery, to multiple forms of corruption, to espionage, to possibly even treason.

Desperate men do desperate things. Tump must be intensely desperate to commit a contemporary version of the Saturday Night Massacre that led to the unraveling of the Nixon Administration and Nixon's resignation in anticipation of impeachment.

When the rock under which Trump's grave crimes and misdemeanors are hidden is turned over, what crawls out from under it may be enough to turn your stomach.

Obviously it goes without saying that Trump is a moron. But what's with the constant capitalization of Words that he thinks are Important? I think that is what barely literate people typically do.

Sorry for being a grammar nazi, but you had a misspelling. The correct spelling is TRE45ON.

Whatever the 45th occupant of the White House says he can turn around and claim he never said it. Trumpism turns everything upside down and backwards. The truth is never spoken. We now have Trumpspeak.
