Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, November 09, 2018

Sens. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Chris Coons (D-Del.) plan to ask for a floor vote on legislation to shield Special Counsel Robert Mueller from a firing when the upper chamber returns to session next week, Flake said on Thursday.

McConnell will never let it come to the floor.

I'm not sure about Senate rules but House rules allow the majority to override the Speaker to bring a bill to the floor. If it's the same in the Senate, it's going to take one hell of a lot of bi-partisanship to override McConnell. He rules with an iron fist.

Will the Senate take the leap? I seriously doubt they have the guts. Where's the quid pro quo in it for them?

The Benghazi!! investigation took 2 years and 4 months and found nothing. Several people have already been indicted from Meullers investigation.

I suspect Sniper has been a moron all his life. Isn't that long enough?

Perhaps you should follow your own advice and plonk Tony and I instead of whining about our posts being too long and/or our use of blockquotes.

Sensitive about your walls of text? I've done that a couple of times, when warranted. JPWitless does that every single day.

ps. I don't read tiny text AKA blockquotes from anyone, regardless of ideology. I'm not going to enlarge the font to make your cut and pastes readable. Life is too short.

#13 Since folks like RoC, who you probably want to read, sometimes use blockquotes, here's a hint for you:

Use the Zoom button at the top of your browser (on mine it's in the top right hand corner) to enlarge the page/text to 125%. You can easily then use that same button to reduce the text/page back down to 100% once you've read the blockquote/s. That's what I do. With this method, you don't have to enlarge the font size, per se.

How old and decrepit are you that you can't even read blockquotes?

I know how to zoom text. Not going to do it unless I'm very interested in the content. Most of the time I'm not. Sorry.

You just don't complain when folks like RoC do it. Gotcha. Which proves my point: you'd rather whine than plonk someone or scroll on passed their posts.

Then follow your own advice and stop whining when certain people do it:

You're really butthurt because one time in the last year I criticized you or Roma for walls of text. Maybe you should plonk me.

Not a single one of your posts on this thread has anything to do with the topic of the thread.

Just a little FYI.

I can't speak to the veracity of this, but maybe we'll know one way o the other soon:

Your Friday afternoon Trump/Russia update:

IC official says Team Mueller is holding "dozens of sealed indictments ... Nobody who's close to the Russians is getting out of this."

If your Orange Fuhrer is innocent as you always claim there troglodyte, what are you worried about if it takes 2 years or 20? If Orange Adolf is innocent, he has nothing to hide and he wouldn't be trying to stop Mueller's legal investigation. But you, I, and the rest of your kind know he is gulity as F***!

BTW weren't you one of the --------- that cried Beeeennnnnggghhhhaaazzzzziiiii For years..... Like a child that missed his nap time?!?!

Answer is YES, FWIW!

Will the Senate take the leap? I seriously doubt they have the guts.

The last election demonstrates that Trump is an unpopular president, that the republican brand is tarnished and voters will toss incumbents out on their butts. Republican senators that are up for re-election in 2020 that represent states won by HRC in 2016 and showed a distaste for the republican brand in 2018 should be nervous. They are probably more predisposed to support a bipartisan effort to protect Mueller's investigation.

Trump was probably advised that Whitaker's appointment would be problematic but he didn't care. I don't think Whitaker will fire Mueller or impede his investigation. Whitaker's role is to continue his spying for the White House. Whitaker knows that any adverse action he takes against the Mueller investigation is likely to viewed as obstruction of justice.

Whitaker is only the acting AG, someone else will be nominated as the official AG and they will have to be confirmed by the senate.
