Mike's Blog Round Up
April 10, 2018

So here we are with new reports of the Orange Moron wanting to fire Mueller or Rosenstein or Sessions, and otherwise freaking out (the weakness in his Death Star now exposed), while he controls America's military and appears to be planning (to the extent anything he does is actually planned) an illegal (and no doubt pointless, beyond trying to vent his anger and shift the media's attention) strike on Syria.

Everyone ready for a constitutional crisis (beyond the one already in progress)?

Emptywheel: Republicans are providing cover for firing/blocking Mueller.

No More Mister Nice Blog: The FBI's Cohen raid has exacerbated Trump’s childlike id.

The Mahablog: Cohen is rightly being treated like a mob lawyer.

Hullabaloo: The Mueller investigation is looking into the Seychelles connection.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. (Twitter: @mjwstickings.) I'll be here all week.

Send requests and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
