REPORT: Impeachment Buzz Rattles WH Insiders

Vanity Fair reports:

Until now, Robert Mueller has haunted Donald Trump’s White House as a hovering, mostly unseen menace. But by securing indictments of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, and a surprise guilty plea from foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos, Mueller announced loudly that the Russia investigation poses an existential threat to the president.

“Here’s what Manafort’s indictment tells me: Mueller is going to go over every financial dealing of Jared Kushner and the Trump Organization,” said former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg. “Trump is at 33 percent in Gallup. You can’t go any lower. He’s fucked.”

The first charges in the Mueller probe have kindled talk of what the endgame for Trump looks like, according to conversations with a half-dozen advisers and friends of the president. For the first time since the investigation began, the prospect of impeachment is being considered as a realistic outcome and not just a liberal fever dream.

According to a source, advisers in the West Wing are on edge and doing whatever they can not to be ensnared. One person close to Dina Powell and Gary Cohn said they’re making sure to leave rooms if the subject of Russia comes up.

Further down in the above-linked piece, Steve Bannon is reported to blame Kushner for the latest dumpster fire. Bannon is also reportedly worried about a 25th Amendment revolt from Trump’s cabinet.

    How utterly stupid must you be if NOW is the moment you are rattled about Trump Impeachment prospects.

    • bkmn

      In their defense, can you imagine how hectic and chaotic the work day has to be with him in charge?

      • pch1013

        They chose to work for Trump. They deserve every bad thing that happens to them.

        • Uncle Mark

          • AaronD12

            I thought that was a recent picture.

            This is what happens when you ask your fairy godmother for eternal life but, forget to ask for eternal youth, also.

          • RoFaWh

            There’s a Greek myth on that very subject. Those given eternal life but not eternal youth end up as crickets.

            BTW, that lady needs some serious advice. She’s far too old and wrinkly to wear a bikini, or even to show her skin off at all in good light. Ever wonder why older gays prefer to turn the lights off before disrobing?

    • danolgb

      Well, he has been protected by a majority in Congress who care more about protecting their jobs than protecting the company. At a certain point, there will be far too much in the open for them to continue that. Although, there is still 33 percent of the country who are immune to facts.

    • Karl Dubhe

      They only watch Fox News.

      They’ll get what they deserve, and can keep on watching it in prison.

      • AmeriCanadian

        Well then they must be well-versed in hamburger emojis!

    • jerry

      I read an article on Friday, when it was first announced indictments were coming, that all of Trump’s attorneys were either at home or vacationing…everyone caught by surprise. So yes, utterly stupid.

  • bkmn

    Dear WH Staff, remember that staffers were the ones who went to prison over Watergate. He will throw you under the bus without hesitation.

    • Ninja0980

      The people being charged or likely to be charged know that as well.

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen

      Then he’ll throw it in reverse and back over you again… and again… and again… and…

        Yo Guys at the WH … run, do not walk, do not pass ‘GO’, do not collect $200. to the Special Councils office at 1730 M Street in D.C. and dump your guts. TELL ALL and maybe … just maybe you won’t end up making license plates or office furniture for the next 20 years and having a hairy-backed bunk mate named ‘Butch’.

        • Bluto

          I wouldn’t mind a hairy-backed bunk mate named Butch.

        And then tell you Hillary was driving the bus.

        Like Serial Mom with that teacher in the parking lot (I was unable to find a clip on YouT).

    • MichaelJ

      That loyalty to Trump is only a one-way street is one of the few things that gives me any hope that Trump will be out of office before his terms is up. However, I can’t help but think that Republicans will turn a blind eye to Trump’s corruption and obstruction of justice, no matter how much evidence gets publicized.

      • Jeffg166

      I just finished watching the WH presser…I’m sure hoping the first to go is Sarah Huckabilly.

      • RoFaWh

        I accidentally heard her speak a few syllables. What the hell is going on? She’s a fucking ignorant, stupid hillbilly and she’s the head of White House communications? Really?

    “Who was in the room talking about Russia when you left?” they asked the material witness. “And who brought up the subject?”

  • The_Wretched

    New name for me in that article. Dina Powell. She apparently works at the NSC and used to be at Goldman-Sachs. Very swampy. Oddly, the article says she leaves the room whenever Russia is mentioned (so does gary cohen). We haven’t seen what her connection to Russia is yet.

    • Tawreos

      She may be smart enough to keep from having one.

    • Natty Enquirer

      Not odd. Preventive. They don’t want anyone to be to say truthfully that they were part of any Russia conversation. Which means they definitely have been already.

      • The_Wretched

        it’s odd that anyone in the Trump universe isn’t entirely incompetent ;p.

  • Lazycrockett

    The GOP serves their Oligarchs and they want their tax cuts. Nothing will happen.

    • Uncle Mark

      I would normally agree with you, but these (and future) indictments won’t go to trial, until well-within the 2018 midterms. These ongoing trials will be crippling to the complicit GOP…PLUS Trump’s self-sucking buddy, Bannon, is working to undermine the establishment GOP. For the sake of their own survival, they will have to jettison Trump & Co.

      • Karl Dubhe

        Same, I would have agreed at one point. But not anymore.

        This can’t be allowed to continue, and things that can’t continue don’t.

        then pit the middle class against the poor working class.

    • melllt

      You know how you read something online, and you think, that can’t be true. That would be ridiculous. And then you read some more. And then you remember that guy from The Apprentice is our president, and you wonder how the onion staff is doing. Are they “making stuff up” or just reporting the news.
      That’s me today.

      • lymis

        I remember that Gary Hart was instantly made unelectable by being seen on a boat with his mistress. Compare that to what everyone had public documentation on about Trump going into the campaign.

        • The_Wretched

    • lymis

      Well, yes, that’s true enough as it goes.

      But if Trump and Pence are taken out by either impeachment or the 25th Amendment, Ryan cannot fail to be conscious of being next in line of succession.

      He’s likely trying to keep the splatters from reaching him so he can step into the Oval Office.

    • kelven

      Here’s hoping one of those sealed indictments has his name on it.

    • IMHO Paul Ryan is as big a POS as Trump, maybe bigger. He was a Trump critic early on, started kissing his ass when Trumpski got the nomination and has had his nose so far up Trump’s butt since his election that he can’t see anything but ass hairs.

  • DanimalChgo

    Bannon’s name turns up in that piece an awful lot for someone who supposedly doesn’t work in the White House anymore.

  • The Sentinel

    Impeachment Buzz gives me a boner.

  • AdamTh

    Impeachment is a political process. With the GOP/NRA/Nazis in control of Congress, I don’t see that happening.

    I can see Donnie being indicted and tried in a regular criminal court, along with the rest of his thugs..

    • The_Wretched

      He might be indicted but the indictment would sit there until he’s out of office with nothing going on.

    • Sam_Handwich

      on the other hand, republicans in congress are more interested in keeping their own jobs than with Dotard keeping his. heading into midterms with a party leader who has 33% approval really sucks.

      and also, Mueller has only revealed the tip of the iceberg. we’ll see where the next few months lead

      • another_steve

        That, Sam… plus I believe most congressional Republicans would much prefer Pence at the helm than Trump.

        Pence wouldn’t tweet, is polished and is articulate. He could get stuff done.

        He’s their boy, not Trump.

        • Adam Schmidt

          Pence at this point would feel like a relief. Oh sure, he’ll work to screw over women, LGBTs, and minorities but we probably won’t end up in WWIII and he’ll work with the Republicans in Congress rather than do whatever Bannon says is a good idea.

          • another_steve

            Yes. Well said, Adam. Though I’d much prefer that Trump not be removed from office. He’s the gift that keeps on giving. He could potentially destroy the Republican brand, which would be a very good thing indeed.

            I do fear the possibility that he’ll initiate a nuclear war with North Korea as the ultimate diversion from Russiagate.

            That worries me.

      • Snarkaholic

        Hopefully, Papsmear’s wire recorded Chump making numerous, VERY disparaging remarks about the Nazis and impoverished Chump voters…and bragging about how stupid they are, etc.
        It will cause at least some of them abandon him.

    • TexasBoy

      I think it will depend upon how badly the GOP congressional candidates want to distance themselves for The Donald.

    • lymis

      If Mueller has enough on Trump, or better yet Trump AND Pence, the GOP will run away like cockroaches.

      The moment you start seeing some serious “He was never really a Republican” and dusting off the “He used to be friends with the Clintons” (complete with pictures), you’ll know they’re ready to throw him under every possible passing bus.

      • jerry

        Same as when the minister gets caught in the sex scandal/child molestation…”He wasn’t REALLY a Christian.”

    • pkb10r

      Unfortunately, it appears a sitting president cannot be indicted while still in office. A VP can be indicted (as was Spiro Agnew, Nixon’s VP), but not a president. If he resigns, however, he could be indicted–particularly by New York State. If he resigns and faces federal indictment, the next president would probably pardon him, but if he resigns and is convicted of New York State offenses, the next president cannot pardon him for those.

    • Lantor

      I know the Supremes say he could have been and I know Bill Clinton was impeached, but was Clinton ever actually indicted?

      • Tomcat

        Wow, so he wants to take both the healthcare and their money to add to his tax cuts. MAGA

      • Tomcat

        Maybe we could contract Russia to protect us and use our military budget to add more tax cuts for him also.

    No way Republicans will impeach unless felony charges are brought. Even then…

    • another_steve

      If Trump’s approval number continues to fall, I think Republicans up for reelection next year will abandon him.

      The “Don’t Want to be Tied to the Titanic” Principle.

      • Bambino

        Also to usurp the Dems and taking credit for cleaning the White House as a talking point. They can blame the failed Wall, failed repeal of Obama care and the failed tax cut on the fucking moran. A reset button to forget since inauguration.

      They’ll blame him on the Clintons.

      Isn’t Bannon part of the investigation? If not he should be.

    >“Jared is the worst political adviser in the White House in modern history,” Nunberg said.

      The Trump Gang all think they understand how government works and how to pervert it to one’s own ends.

      In fact, they don’t have a clue about the subject and their efforts aren’t working, but thanks to the Dunning-Kruger effect, they’re too stupid to realize that the fundamental problem is their own stupidity.

      I wonder if they’ll let Ivanka wear heels in prison0?

  • Mike C

    Again, its all typical of someone who has gotten away with everything and is used to skirting the law because when you’re wealthy enough (and your business is NYC real estate) you can get away with it. This is a group of people that have never been held responsibility for anything they do. They’ve never been charged with crimes (that are obvious). They routinely buy their way out of and bury lawsuits. And Trump himself has hit the bankruptcy reset button at least 4 times. This whole accountability thing is brand new to these people.

    • pch1013

      Now they are, and it’s killing him.

      • RoFaWh

        I’ve thought exactly the same.

        Perhaps the reason we never see a smile on Trump’s face except those phony ones he learned from Roy Cohn is that he’s effectively in a state of perpetual tantrum. And it shows. He does appear to have the self control not to throw himself on the floor and scream while thrashing his limbs around.

        Youtube has some videos of kids tantruming so intensely I’d send them back and ask for a refund.

  • AlternativeQuacks


    Apparently the reason for this is called the ‘crime-fraud exception’ and it’s “the rarest exception of them all. These cases are so infrequent precisely because they require uniquely awful behavior by the client and even sometimes by the client’s attorney.”

    • Ernest Endevor

      Holy shit.

    • Rillion

      This is pretty narrow. The lawyer filled out a federal disclosure form on behalf of Manafort and this allows the prosecutors to ask the attorney if the information on the form was what Manafort told the attorney. Basically it is just to prevent Manafort from trying to say he didn’t lie because he didn’t fill out the form.

    Scenario… Early next year Trump is impeached. Republicans join ranks in removing him. Pence becomes President. News and advert cycles praise the new, steady, calm Commander in Chief. Republican popularity rises (while they’re fucking over the country with legislation to enrich and empower themselves). The news cycles are dominated with “Look how well Pence is behaving. Look at what an amazing statesman he is.”
    Republicans are re-elected to House by a mudslide landslide in November next year. Pence is re-elected in 2020 as the steady hand at the tiller of Good Ship America.
    Meanwhile, you’re all fucked.

      Manafort wanted Pence on the ticket because of HIS Russian ties.

      He’s up to his neck in this TREASON, too, tiger!

        Trump’s instinct was to pick Chris Christie due to his craven loyalty, but in comes Manafort and in a moment Trump goes completely out of character and chooses a person he knows nothing about over a person he knows would swallow cyanide if he thought it would make Dear Donald happy.

        So? That’s not part of the plan.

      The media would behave like that because they are run by ratings chasing retards. Just look at the 9 month long “but her emails” saga and the zombified Uranium One ordeal. Praise Satan we are not wholly governed by media barons.

        Yes you are. I guess you missed last year.

      Pence will use marriage records to round us up for his camps.

        A President has no such authority by himself.

    • If your scenario came to pass, everyone in the DNC, and every prominent Democrat needs to be fired/deserves to be voted out. If you can’t turn the Trump Error into electoral gold, can’t paint the whole party as corrupt, and the GOP wins in a landslide less than a year later? It would be political malpractice.

        Democrats dont control the news cycle.
        It’s really simple for the Republicans to paint themselves as the heroes for impeaching Trump, and installing the steady handed Pence.
        You dont think 24hr news bites of Republicans congratulating themselves, and comparing Pence to Trump wont sway the electorate that Republicans are the party of responsibility?

        • Gianni

          You make an excellent point. It is easy to see how if the Reps unite and impeach Donnie and he is removed by the Senate, they will be the heroes for stepping up to the plate when absolutely necessary for the good of the USA. The whole image of courage as a party would likely be unstoppable by the Dems.

    “Steve Bannon is reported to blame Kushner…”

    Well Kushner is a Jew, and Bannon a Nazi.

    Trump may never see a prison, but his aides and staff will be wearing prison jumpsuits if they don;t start cooperating with investigators now. And no, Trump will not be paying for your defense.

    Ok here’s my prediction…Mueller has shown himself to be not only smart but clever…they are not one and the same. Smart was getting the goods on Manafort and turning Papadopoulos. Clever was releasing the manafort indictment and holding back georgie knowing trump would run to his tweet account. Then dropping georgie right after trump did what you knew he would do making him look like a fool. The anger of events like this as we move forward will make trump even more unstable precipitating more unforced errors. Mueller, I think, has someone in his sites that will bring the house of cards down and have trump come apart. Jared will take the he ain’t theone. Don Jr on the other hand will unravel like someone who stepped on a thread of a woven fabric. Don Jr is the one who will have to wear industrial Depends when they call him to deliver the coup de gras. Hopefully TMZ cameras are around if they raid his house.

    Hillary doll, I hope you are as conniving as they say. If you are, having been secretary of state and married to a president, there has to be plenty you know. I sincerely hope you are just waiting for the most efficacious time to LET HAVE!

    ” they’re making sure to leave rooms if the subject of Russia comes up.”

    Scurrying like mice, are they?? The only one 45 can’t pardon is himself, so look for
    some deal with pence where he’s nixonized. Of course everyone else will
    probably be thrown under the bus….actually, .that’s already started….

    “According to a source, advisers in the West Wing are on edge and doing whatever they can not to be ensnared. ” Sorry, it’s a little too late for that – you’re still working there.

    “Bannon is also reportedly worried about a 25th Amendment revolt from Trump’s cabinet.”

    It’s probably just a dream, but that is why we need to have some somewhat sane people in the cabinet. People ask “why are those people serving in Trump’s cabinet?” It’s because they realize that someone needs to grab the helm as the ship is going down. (probably not the best metaphor, but you knwo what I mean.)
