Annnnnd Sessions resigned not even 24 hours after midterms at Trump's behest.

Strap yourselves in and expect a Mueller firing within weeks - if not days, or even today.

Also he was on some "Let's milk the fuck out of patents" board.

He's basically a grifter.

Apparently Whitaker has previously floated the idea of keeping Mueller but cutting his budget to the bone.

If Whitaker interferes, he opens himself up to an obstruction of justice investigation.

If we accept that impeachment is unlikely and the best outcome of the Mueller probe is that Trump doesn't get re-elected because he's a crook, there are plenty of things a Democratic House can do to make that point.

Not saying that any interference with the Mueller probe would be a good thing. Just that it would be a lot of risk for a uncertain reward.

Trump, of course, is not a rational person. He doesn't have a plan. He doesn't listen to advice or consider consequences.

If you lived in Donald Trump's reality you wouldn't pay much attention to logic either.

(Especially because he keeps making fun of your name.)

By the way, did anyone else see the bit about Sarah Huckabee Sanders (who is apparently being referred to online as "Shucks" now) actually using an InfoWars video the other day to justify Trump's position?

We're at the point where Alex Jones is essentially interchangeable with the POTUS.

The one about Jim Acosta shooing away and/or assaulting the intern during that press tantrum the other day? Because the fact that we're having to Zapruder whether he gently touched or karate chopped someone makes me want to crush my skull between my own palms.

Like, does anyone else feel personally insulted when this administration tries to get us not to believe our lying eyes? Like, how fucking stupid do you think we are?

Yeah, that's the one.

His descending past the level of InfoWars aside, I'm amazed Trump hasn't already banned any of the press who are the least bit unfriendly to him.

The article itself is incredibly spicy, with highlights like this one:

And perhaps most importantly, he could be found using his résumé as a former U.S. attorney to threaten clients who intended to go public about how World Patent Marketing had scammed them. In August 2015, the Miami New Times tells us, Whitaker decided to go after one possible client himself, sending a threatening letter from his official firm account:

That, ladies and gentlemen, is the current acting attorney general in a previous life, leveraging his career in federal law enforcement to run protection for a criminal enterprise.
