Trump Goes on Another Twitter Rampage About Mueller

For the most part, as you've probably noticed, I tend to ignore Donald Trump's near-daily morning tweetshitz. Occasionally, however, and more frequently in recent weeks, his early AM tweeting hovers on the precipice of outright criminal, and that's when I feel it's worth some attention.

This morning, Trump went on yet another rambling rampage about Special Counsel Bob Mueller's investigation, and it was a real doozy. The series of tweets reads (bizarre punctuation, random capitalizations, and misspellings original):
Robert Mueller and Leakin' Lyin' James Comey are Best Friends, just one of many Mueller Conflicts of Interest. And bye the way, wasn't the woman in charge of prosecuting Jerome Corsi (who I do not know) in charge of "legal" at the corrupt Clinton Foundation? A total Witch Hunt...

....Will Robert Mueller's big time conflicts of interest be listed at the top of his Republicans only Report. Will Andrew Weissman's horrible and vicious prosecutorial past be listed in the Report. He wrongly destroyed people's lives, took down great companies, only to be........

.....overturned, 9-0, in the United States Supreme Court. Doing same thing to people now. Will all of the substantial & many contributions made by the 17 Angry Democrats to the Campaign of Crooked Hillary be listed in top of Report. Will the people that worked for the Clinton....

....Foundation be listed at the top of the Report? Will the scathing document written about Lyin' James Comey, by the man in charge of the case, Rod Rosenstein (who also signed the FISA Warrant), be a big part of the Report? Isn't Rod therefore totally conflicted? Will all of....

...the lying and leaking by the people doing the Report, & also Bruce Ohr (and his lovely wife Molly), Comey, Brennan, Clapper, & all of the many fired people of the FBI, be listed in the Report? Will the corruption within the DNC & Clinton Campaign be exposed?..And so much more!
This latest despicable disgorgement doesn't quite rise to the level of criminal obstruction, but it's nonetheless the President of the United States leveraging (abusing) the immense power of his office to publicly try to discredit an investigation into his alleged collusion with a foreign adversary to steal an election.

In other dirtbag presidency news, it was reported last night that former FBI Director Andrew McCabe, whom Trump pressured then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to fire one day before McCabe was set to retire anyway to rob him of his pension, had launched an obstruction of justice investigation into Trump's firing of his predecessor, James Comey.

So Trump apparently circumvented that obstruction investigation by replicating precisely the same behavior that had warranted it in the first place.

Further, there is a report this morning that Trump's Chief of Staff John Kelly is imminently on his way out the door. CNN's Kaitlan Collins reports: "John Kelly is expected to resign soon, I'm told. Trump and Kelly are essentially at a stalemate in their relationship and it's no longer seen as tenable by either party. They have stopped speaking in recent days, I'm told. Of course, it's all ultimately up to Trump."

Which makes me even more certain that yesterday's item about Trump's doubts about Mike Pence was placed by Kelly. Looks like he lost that mighty power struggle, as I assumed he would.

He got in Pence's way. And in Trump's way. I don't know which one was ultimately more perilous for him.
