Russian Bounty Hunters in Afghanistan

The last big bounty scandal in the news involved the New Orleans Saints. But there are no saints in this story. The NYT reported that Russian President Putin paid the Taliban to kill American soldiers. A WSJ editorial questioned the need for bounties, considering the Taliban already whacks Americans for the religious thrill of it. But considering Putin’s record killing journalists in his own country it sounds plausible.

And inquiring minds want to know what Trump did about it. Nothing. Though he did kill a couple hundred Russians in Syria in 2018, but that was before the story broke.

Or maybe 1980s are calling to get back their Stinger missiles that President Reagan gave to the Taliban to shoot down Russian helicopters.

Anyway, Catherine Herridge at CBS says the CIA and NSA are split on the bounty story, and the president claims he was never briefed.

John Bolton Cashing in and Everybody Hates Him

John Bolton is cashing in on his service as President Trump’s national security advisor. As is his habit, Trump fired Bolton. So he wrote a book called “The Room where it Happened.” And it seems plenty happened.

Bolton wrote, “obstruction of justice was a way of life in the White House.” And he claims Trump asked China President Xi to help him get re-elected.

Democrats are pissed because Bolton refused to testify at the impeachment hearings.

Meanwhile, the cat’s out of the bag, the horse is out of the barn, the train has left the station

Weaponizing the Justice Department

President Trump is weaponizing the Justice Department. At least that’s what former insiders told Rachel Maddow.

And they thought Trump was a Russian asset. So the FBI used a phony dossier to get FISA court approval to spy on the 2016 Trump campaign. But when Special Counsel Mueller investigated Russian Collusion for 2 1/2 yers he came up empty handed.

Weaponizing Wing Man

So now AG Barr is investigating the investigators. And President Obama’s “wing man” Eric Holder calls that “unprecedented” behavior.

Trump Tweet Trips Barr

President Trump is driving his best Attorney General, who never recused himself, around the bend. So much so that A.G. Barr told ABC News that Trump is making it impossible to do his job.

Trump Tweet

Here’s why. When federal prosecutors recommended a 7-9 year sentence for the president’s odd associate, Roger Stone, Trump was moved to tweet:

This is a horrible and very unfair situation. The real crimes were on the other side, and nothing happens to them. Cannot allow this miscarriage of justice!

As it turns out, the Trump tweet may have been right. Barr’s Justice Department wasn’t going to allow “this miscarriage of justice.” They had already decided to ask the judge for a more lenient sentence.

But now it looked like Barr was just following Trump’s orders. So the original 4 prosecutors got mad, quit and hell broke loose.

Acme Impeachment Anvil Falls on Wily Democrats

Things haven’t worked out well for the Wily Democrats. It’s dawning on them that Joe Biden has never won a primary in his 77 years.

Then there was there was the caucus chaos in Iowa.

Elizabeth Warren’s plans to appeal to the far left seem to be losing their favor. But that’s only because Bernie Sanders, a 78 year old socialist, who’s not really a Democrat, is leading the party even further left.

The 38 year old small city Mayor Pete nips at his heels. And 78 year old humongous city Republican Mayor Mike, with billions to burn, is coming on strong. And he says he’s willing to spend whatever it takes.

Wily Democrats

Maybe Amy Klobuchar will prevail in sensible shoes.

But whatever happens, they’ll always have impeachment.

Beep! Beep!
