Step by step, Mueller gets closer to Trump

Treasury Sec Mnuchin says Trump will see tax increase under tax plan

So when is Trump going to try to fire Mueller? After all, he’s interviewing Trump’s aides now:

Washington (CNN)White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller has been interviewed as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, according to sources familiar with the investigation.

The interview brings the special counsel investigation into President Donald Trump’s inner circle in the White House. Miller is the highest-level aide still working at the White House known to have talked to investigators.

Miller’s role in the firing of FBI Director James Comey was among the topics discussed during the interview as part of the probe into possible obstruction of justice, according to one of the sources.

Special counsel investigators have also shown interest in talking to attendees of a March 2016 meeting where foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos said that he could arrange a meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin through his connections. Miller was also at the meeting, according to a source familiar with the meeting.

From Josh Marshall:

With the news that Robert Mueller has a copy of the original letter on James Comey’s firing written by Trump aide Stephen Miller and Trump himself, we need to return to the great mystery of that lost hour on the tarmac on Air Force One.

What am I talking about? Well, with a touch of dramatic flair I’m talking about this odd and increasingly odd over time mystery about what was happening the night President Trump came back from his Bedminster villa after a weekend of stewing about James Comey and then fired Comey 36 hours later.

At the time, it just seemed like another Trump era weirdness. Air Force One landed. Jared got off the plane, put Ivanka and the kids in an SUV and then got back on the plane. And then Trump and a group of his closest aides were apparently arguing on the plane for about an hour while the traveling press cooled its heels and wondered what was going on. They never got an explanation. But after about an hour a rather disheveled President Trump got off the plane and went back to the White House. Who was there on the plane with Trump? Stephen Miller.

Go read the rest.

    Quite frankly it’s a hoot watching Trump “twist slowly in the wind” day after day.
    Then there’s the fact that after Trump is told to leave office, or is dragged off on a door in a prone position, we’ll be stuck with President Pence.
    The prospect of Pence being the president should send shivers up all of our spines.

    With Pence as the president the Republican ‘enrich the rich’ tax bill might easily become law and who knows what other evil “Christian Capitalist” acts Pence has up his sleeve?

    Note to all Democratic Senators and Representatives:

    Republicans are the enemy.

    Quit fraternizing with the enemy.

    By the time Mueller finishes exposing the Orange Anus for all his wrong-doing, Pence will have nothing to work with in Congress, especially in ’18 and beyond. Who among us would like to be Biden’s running mate in ’20?
