I would assume that the position will only be temporary
What difference does that make for the duration of his tenure?

Judge Ken Starr, former Solicitor Generel & Independent Counsel, just stated that, after two years, “there is no evidence or proof of collusion” & further that “there is no evidence that there was a campaign financing violation involving the President.” Thank you Judge. @FoxNews
Generel!!

Ken Starr on Dec 13th;
Quote:
Ken Starr said Robert Mueller, serving as special counsel to the U.S. Department of Justice, has done good work prosecuting Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Starr defended Mueller’s integrity as a nonpartisan prosecutor, and said President Donald Trump would be unwise to fire him.

America, we have a problem, because the degree of interference and fraudulent interference with our election was horrible. However, there’s been no evidence that I’ve seen of collusion with the Trump campaign, but let’s stay tuned.”

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

in other news,

North Korea responds to US sanctions by threatening to stop pretending they are going to disarm.

Draft dodger Gulliani makes a clown of himself defending Spanky.

I'm not sure I can fit any more popcorn in, how much longer has this to run?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

So, I'm wondering, how does Rudy Giliani, the guy who held it together after 911, Time magazine man of the year, become this laughing stock we see today?. A little digging turned up another view of 'Americas Mayor' note this was sponsored by the International Association of Firefighters back in 2007.



Spanky defender turns out to be a bad person, hold the front page.

Anytime you hear a Democrat saying that you can have good Boarder Security without a Wall, write them off as just another politician following the party line. Time for us to save billions of dollars a year and have, at the same time, far greater safety and control!

He really struggles with that word. It's like he's been institutionalized away from his parents in private schools all his life and is fixated by it.

So everyone who isn't happy with Trump's opponents, is a bad person?

Hold the front page indeed, for a dogmatic echo chamber.

These ubicuituous typos must be deliberate. Anybody who cares about them, and everybody would unless they use them to get a message across, would have gotten rid of them ages ago.

Trump:
"I'm one of you. See, I even make lots of orthographic errors, mine are even worse than yours."

Possibly but then why does he delete the incorrect tweets and replace them with correct ones?
Then he is saying "I am not one of you, I correct my errors"?
In this case he corrected his tweet in less than 2 hours.

Near record falls today in all the major US stock indices; over 2%.
Deep in negative territory, back to November 2017 levels.

Today I am making good on my promise to defend our Farmers & Ranchers from unjustified trade retaliation by foreign nations.
I have authorized Secretary Perdue to implement the 2nd round of Market Facilitation Payments.
Our economy is stronger than ever–we stand with our Farmers!
Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) "My fellow Republicans used to oppose bailouts," "Now, they euphemistically call them 'market facilitation payments.'"

Moving back to the states next month and dreading it. It has been such a pleasure to be removed from the reality of this stage of history.

You will certainly have more power there to improve it

It is the "if you don't agree with me your are either dumb or an enemy" mindset that really annoys there. Overbearing.

Good luck today in court to General Michael Flynn.
Will be interesting to see what he has to say, despite tremendous pressure being put on him, about Russian Collusion in our great and, obviously, highly successful political campaign.
There was no Collusion!
Tremendous pressure? Trump trying again to destroy the rule of law with no evidence.

The FBI have released the memo summarising their first meeting with Flynn here. There is no indication of tremendous pressure or even of any pressure?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

New Gallup poll on what Americans see as the top problem, details here.

Top problem is the US Govt.!
Immigration and healthcare have both fallen in importance.
