Of course the other big news aside from change in control of the House, is that Jeff Sessions has "resigned". Now, we don't know for sure why Sessions resigned, but I'm leaning towards this explanation:

https://thehill.com/homenews/house/415628-schiff-its-abundantly-clear-sessions-was-forced-out-for-not-ending-mueller

What a coincidence. You're leaning towards an anti-Trump explanation. Shocking!

Libs are already falling for it. Trump will goad them into wasting the next 2 years dicking around obsessing over his tax returns and Russia, and it will just further propel Republicans in 2020. I've never seen a political party so easily manipulated into sabotaging themselves. These fools are talking impeachment when not only do they not have 2/3's of the Senate, they don't even have 50%!

And you think Sessions actually resigned willingly, after reiterating time and again that he would not resign.  Trump Jr. is next...and Trump had to fire Sessions and end the investigation before his son goes down...but he couldn't take the chance before the mid-term elections.  The investigation will be terminated after Mueller is either dismissed or his funding exhausted.  Democrats will cry to high hell and Republicans will slowly excuse and dismiss the entire event...and the biggest turd in the Washington swamp will remain in power.  Cheers!

So now 2 years into this fiasco, Mueller has nothing. What's your point?  Mueller needs more time? For what?

I never understand this argument. He's issued 35 indictments and is preparing a comprehensive report.  He's moving swifter than past special counsels. I get that it's a distraction, but if he issues a report clearing the campaign, isn't that better than the perpetual cloud that would hover over the presidency if the investigation was wrapped prematurely?

Where are the indictments against Storcz, Page and McCabe? 
Doesn't the Mueller investigation smell just slightly partisan to you?
Is there no cloud over the FBI and DOJ for their blatant attempts to fix the election?

Another argument I never can understand.  The FBI broke with tradition to announce it was re-opening the HRC investigation DAYS before the election, while not disclosing an active investigation of the Trump campaign!  How is that possibly an attempt to fix an election?  And what crimes did Storcz et al commit?  Being in possession of poor judgement and a political opinion?

I think that Trump sees everything under the sun through a political lens, and through the magic of projection, can't fathom how any person, let alone a man with as sterling a reputation as Robert Mueller (a lifelong republican), could possibly take a non-partisan approach to public service.

That's fine. Let Mueller finish. But Rosenstein is obstructing justice, that is clear. He should be fired. The PUBLIC has a right
to see those FISA documents and all the supporting materials. Congress and the President have ordered it. Let the PUBLIC
see the documents and everyone can make their own conclusions.

The DOJ is not releasing those documents, just like all those other docs, when they get released - the corruption becomes apparent - and the bad actors get fired.

Wrong board!  This is where we vent about politics to keep it off the investing boards.  Cheers!

Well... Mueller has how many indictments? And, since you like to talk about the Clintons so much... 2 years into Whitewater the special prosecutor had exactly what?

I disagree on this point, just so the Trump advisory committee on here can't call me partisan.  I'm not sure Clinton and Trump aren't cut from a similar cloth...privileged, spoiled, cheating, egotistical men who associate on occasion with unsavory people.  The worst thing Hilary Clinton did was stick it out with Bill and lose all respect...otherwise, she probably would be President today.  But, she is as compromised as anyone else, and people knew it.

But again, what do the Clinton's have to do with Trump's lies, mis-steps, behavior and the current investigation against Trump and his cohorts.  You've got indictments coming out like a bag of Skittles with a hole in it, and all the Trump advisory committee can do is point a finger at the Clintons or Obama.  Don't make excuses for the turd, otherwise it will end up on the bottom of your shoe!  Cheers!
I'd say that I agree with you and what you say in general terms.

I'd disagree about privilege. Clinton had to use an outhouse. Trump received from his dad a bankroll that could choke a horse.

The sex stuff I don't really care much about. I guess what you say about Hilary and staying with Bill is true. But that's more of a thing for the housewives of America than for me to worry about. For the Trump advisory committee, I don't really care how many porn stars Trump shtupps either. If I really care at all about the sex stuff is about the family values Jesus people who are always glad to tell people how they should live their lives and what to do with their privates. But their guy gets mulligans. Get outta here!

My post was mainly in reply to cubsfan who always has a stick to chew about the Clintons but is exasperated with the length about the Muller investigation. I merely wanted to point out that while the Muller investigation at this point has a significant number of indictments, the Whitewater investigation at this point had none. Despite that the Whitewater investigation went on for years after that. What it found out in the end is that the President lied about getting a blowjob. The act itself of course happened years after Whitewater and had nothing to do with real estate.

I guess what I'm trying to say is if you want to bitch about the Clintons then shut up about Bob Muller. You can't have it both ways.

I bought a Peloton.  It's awesome!  You can snoop around the Facebook group to get a sense of how it works.  They have studios where you can test ride.  It's great for a work from home guy to just jump on the bike and get a 45 min work out in.  I'll let you guys get back to politics.

Sanjeev, would you consider creating a separate exercise category? I come to The Corner of Berkshire and Fairfax to read about politics and I'm tired of all this exercise talk drowning out the political discussions.

So he should sit around and hope for Trump to do an intern in the Oval Office?

RB - you are missing the point I was trying to make with my original post here:

Following up on Zorro's excellent post, about the actions of Clinton crime syndicate.
Listen to Byron York's description of "The actions of foreign government meddling in a US Election".


(fast forward to minute 7:15)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9E245klmCgo

If you will listen to the Byron York account of the Clinton episode, it provides the context that in one case,
a partisan press is not acting in the interest of the American people. That's all I was trying to say. It's really pretty simple.
Why don't you give it a shot? Perhaps you will see my point.

My comments had nothing to do with Whitewater or Monica Lewinsky at all.
