Trump approved extra $129M to help House investigate Hillary. Now Pelosi has it.

Mod: I guess you could call this an unintended consequence. Trump's rather notorious mood swing management style has once again come back to bite him on his large rear end. Ouch!

Trump approved extra $129M to help House investigate Hillary. Now Pelosi has it. (Daily Kos link): 2019 is going to be great. 2020 even better.  Yeah, the shutdown sucks, but I imagine it can only last so long—Trump’s 54,000 border patrol agents are currently not getting paid, nor are the farmers who can’t get their bailout payments until the furlough ends.  Trump will cave, and its not going to get any better for him.

Several months ago, House leaders impressed upon the Donald the need to fix the damage done by Newt Gingrich. Back in the day, he took away staff from committee chairs to consolidate his own power. He figured he could outsource policy making to lobbyists and right-wing think tanks—which is exactly how the GOP runs Congress. The big problem here is that oversight and investigations are hard to run with limited staff, and Hillary Clinton is not going to investigate herself.

Back in late August, Donald—living in his ego-inflated bubble--kept insisting that there would be a “red wave” and listened to pundits who told him that not only would the Democrats not take the House, but the GOP was likely to gain seats. That was the selling point for Congress to get their staff funding. The extra staff would be critical for conducting hearings and investigations, which would be “handy for investigating Hillary Clinton’s emails.” Trump approved the extra $129 million for staff. DOH!

On the flip side, the GOP just closed their investigation into Hillary’s emails and had to admit they had absolutely nothing. However, during this same time period, with the GOP and Trump obstructing in every way, Mueller’s team has managed to get either indictments or guilty pleas from 35 people and 3 companies. Just imagine what the Democratic House is going to find, now that they have subpoena power, staff, funding, and a toothless GOP that can no longer obstruct.

It has also been pointed out that Nancy could even put some funding aside in reserve, just in case Trump tries to fire Mueller and his team.

It’s almost sad that Trumpy really did think that the shutdown would “distract” Nancy from focusing on his Russian collusion and multiple crimes. Wrong again. Nancy knows a thing or two about multi-tasking. Trump is a mentally impaired toddler who can’t concentrate on a single thing--hell, he can’t even drink out of a cup with one hand. It’s really not fair to pit these two against each other. But I’m already having so much fun watching.

  1. Better than that, a new investigation is centering on 'djt' hiring and employment practices at all his goo-logs that he calls businesses. 'djt' jr. was pleading on FuX news about how everyone is picking on him and his family including the orangeade faced clown. https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Investigators-examining-Trump-golf-club-s-13497806.php

  7. Patience is virtue. The GOP has gain an even larger voting block now from the individuals affected by the Schumer Shake Down, Shut Down.
    Hopefully the stopping of funds being sent to the Central American countries and the permanent closing of the Mexican border will happen next. Stay tuned.

  9. Former U.S. Commander McChrystal: Trump is Immoral and Dishonest

    Retired Gen. Stanley McChrystal said in a rare interview Sunday that he considers President Donald Trump “immoral” and wouldn’t take a job in the administration.

    McChrystal, a retired four star general and former top commander of U.S. and international forces in Afghanistan, spoke to ABC News anchor Martha Raddatz about the resignation of Defense Secretary James Mattis and the administration’s Middle East policy.

    “If you were asked to join the Trump administration, what would you say?” Raddatz asked.

    “I’d say no,” McChrystal said.

      Has Trump nationalized profits from trade, or does 10:27 not understand a single thing he spouts?

  13. If I were Trump (thank god I'm not) I would resign tomorrow. More and more investigations are starting everyday. He is truly skewered. He should make some sort of deal and resign. If he doesn't he will be completely destroyed along with his family and organization. It may be already too late.

  17. A dumbbell is used in weight lifting not useful for wall jumping. It would take months to build up muscle and stamina for the purpose of building ladders or digging under with shovels.
    The next caravans are grouping to leave Central America, the illegals demanding to cross the southern border now would not find your dumbbells purposeful because soon they will have to share tent space with the new arrivals and simply do not have the time for weight training.
