Trumpistan Thursday

1a

Michael Cohen on Wednesday delivered a sharp warning to Donald Trump and the Republican party that the president faces legal and political peril on at least two fronts.

First, the Trump-Russia investigation.

Cohen became the first Trump associate to allege that, in 2016, Trump knew in advance that his eldest son, Donald Jr, was meeting Russians promising dirt on Hillary Clinton – and that WikiLeaks would be releasing emails stolen from Democrats by Russian operatives.

Moreover, Cohen hinted that Robert Mueller, the special counsel currently wrapping up a two-year inquiry into whether Trump’s team coordinated with Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, may have proof.

Cohen was asked by Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Florida Democrat forced to resign as party chairwoman over the WikiLeaks disclosures, how they could corroborate his explosive allegations, which are based on remarks he says he overheard in Trump’s office.

“I suspect that the special counsel’s office and other government agencies have the information you’re seeking,” Cohen said. Trump denied both allegations in his written answers to questions from Mueller.

      Shoveled the back walk to the b back stairs. Inside for a warming cuppa java. Only once before, decades ago has the snow been this deep and deeper.

        Oh yes, sun came out for that picture perfect winter view. Temperature up to -3 °C; seems balmy. 🙂

        I can’t believe how much snow you’ve had. I can’t complain, we did pretty well this winter. Only had the drive plowed one time.

        We got about 3 inches the other night, but it’s already seeping away.

      Recoperating after the trip to the grocery store. Will leave the more challenging front stairs until tomorrow; enough for today, my lumbar muscles indicate.

        Happened to be out just when the sun was at the right angle, not too low in the sky, so that many of the snow crystals at the top of undisturbed snow acted as prisms, sending just one color to my eyes. By slightly rocking in place the same crystal would show different colors.

        Not all the rainbow colors showed over the snow field, speckled with tiny spots of color over the general white.
        Red rare
        Orange common
        Yellow present
        Green common
        Cyan very rare
        Blue common
        but no violet, indigo or magenta

        Don’t recall ever noticing this before. 😐

    “It is going to be for defeating climate change. It will be the first thing I say. It will be the launch vehicle for the rocket,” Inslee said in an interview. “I will be the first candidate in history to say this has to be the No. 1 priority in the United States. This has to be the paramount duty of the United States.”
