The Forecast

In other news, Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY) is going to remain on the November ballot even though he's been indicted for insider trading because Republican officials couldn't figure out what to do with him.

Republicans faced difficulty in removing Collins from the ballot under New York State law. The only option was to nominate him for another office and have a replacement take his place on the ballot for his congressional seat. But the NRCC, the campaign arm for House Republicans, told NBC News that the only other office available was a judgeship, and Collins is not a lawyer.

Meanwhile, it appears Turkey and Russia have negotiated an alternative to a full-on assault on Idlib, the last province held by Syrian rebels. An attack would have placed 3 million humans under siege. Turkey did not want to see another million refugees flood their border so they've slowly moved their own forces into Idlib to block an attack.

This looks like good news, but let's see what happens.

Finally, it looks like Michael Flynn is finally done telling Mueller everything he knows.

    “Only”? How about not having the indicted person run for office at all?

    How is it that trump is still trying to undermine the Mueller investigations. That ship has sailed. There are already people going to jail, convictions and guilty pleas. People from the highest reaches of the trump campaign, the trump transition and this week will be the sentencing of the man whom trump has appointed to be the Director of National Intelligence. The felony convictions justify the initial investigation and then some.
    They already found a whole lot of witches. And we have the foreign leader whom trump always praises and whose wishes he seems,…..what would be the word……, unusually solicitous of who is behind a chemical weapons attack one of our oldest and best allies. At this point, the attempts to de-legitimize the Mueller investigation are obvious attempts to prevent Mueller from getting to the truth and making that truth known to the public.

    A judgeship. The only other option for a corrupt elected official was to have him run for judge. Sure…

    Flynn will be declared a folk hero by the MAGA crowd. His crimes will be overlooked because of his military service conservative and let’s stick it to the libbies.
