09:55 pm - Politics and My Visiting the DC Area
I’ve been reading about Mueller obtaining the Trump transition team’s emails:
On Sept. 1, after requests in late August from Mueller’s office, the GSA turned over a flash drive containing tens of thousands of records without informing Trump for America of its move,
Mueller has had these emails for months, and as the article mentions, the person Trump put in the GSA to “handle” this (IOW, to actively obstruct justice, because the GSA is legally required to turn over any emails on government servers to law enforcement officials) got sick, and later died.

This all means that Kushner, Don Jr., and everyone else Mueller’s people interviewed over the last 3 months has had all of their answers compared to these emails. Given that Mueller is now said to be focusing on 18 days shortly after Trump took office, this investigation is clearly about more than just obstruction of justice, it’s directly about Russian connections with Trump and who knew what when. Obviously, this has the entire White House rattled, since their whole house of corrupt cards may be about to collapse. One rumor floating around is that Trump is planning on firing Mueller on December 22 (which he can’t legally do and is clear obstruction of justice), after Congress is out of session. There are already plans for how to deal with this – by massive protests, see this site for locations and details. The basic plan is simple:
Rallies will begin hours after news breaks of a Mueller firing:
• If Mueller is fired BEFORE 2 P.M. local time —> events willbegin @ 5 P.M. local time
• If Mueller is fired AFTER 2 P.M. local time —> events will begin @ noon local time the following day
Interestingly enough, [personal profile] teaotter and I will be visiting my parents in the inner DC suburbs (McLean VA) at that time, so if this happens, I’ll be protesting outside of the White House or the Capitol (the two options for downtown DC). I’m bringing foam core so I can make a sign.

That said, I don’t expect this to happen, but it’s exceedingly difficult to know what to expect, options horrifyingly range from Trump starts a war to he fires Mueller (or indirectly fires Mueller by firing Jeff Sessions, who will be replaced by another already appointed cabinet official (since in this case, no confirmation hearing is needed) who will fire Mueller, to nothing beyond rantings about how this is illegal and all a progressive plot by the racist right media. I am now expecting Kushner & or Don Jr. to be arrested in the next month.

On a related note, [personal profile] teaotter is a forensic accountant who works in all sorts of investigations of fraud, embezzlement, and suchlike, and so she understands the basics of legal investigations. According to her, the fact that George Papadopoulos was arrested and convinced to cooperate less than 2 months after Mueller began his investigation means that there was lots of evidence to find, because having to seriously dig for enough to arrest someone takes lots of time. So, John Oliver’s calling this whole mess “Stupid Watergate” seems exceedingly apt.

In any case, if I am in DC protesting, I’ll take and post video, assuming that I’m not arrested and my phone destroyed. So it goes…
