A good guy who was treated unfairly by both state and media is given a pardon. Justice served.


Only because it should have been Rove and Cheney.

No.
Sessions did. As a result of the inquiry.


...and if Sessions snipcanned Rosenstein, you'd be shouting about Trump personally obstructing justice until you lost your breath and gave the world a bit of peaceful silence while you recovered. Hypocrisy at it's finest right there.


If Trump fires Rosenstein, it would be congress that impeaches him, not out of moral imperative, but out of politicians primary instinct...survival.

Watch what happens if that comes to pass.


I wish you were right, but if/when Rosenstein gets canned I'm predicting every one of the Republican politicians who claimed it would be a line in the sand will quietly retreat to their chambers...


Possible, but they got elected by understanding which way the wind blows.

Its already getting scary for them.

GOP breaks the glass as House outlook darkens
The party is scrambling to shore up seats deep in Trump country, where incumbents won by double digits in 2016.

I've heard this as well. Part of me worries though that at the realization that no amount of retreating to their safe spaces is going to save them, so instead they double down on Trump and ride the train as long as it'll take them (since it may be fractionally longer than just bowing out now).


Maybe. But that is all good too. At least they will be transparent about their loyalty.
In that scenario we are spared a President Pence, but the GOP is reduced to ashes.
Objectively I am don't see success by any strategy being proposed by the GOP thus far.


I genuinely hope you're right. I kinda feel like holding my breath lest I jinx it. Its important to remind ourselves that the vocal conservative majority here on ATS tends toward the extreme more than the middle.

I don't know why Democrats despise Trump so much. No one has weakened the GOP more than Trump.

My "outraged" meme.

I think this is definite cause for impeachment. This is the smoking weapon of war!

Trump first. Everything and everyone else comes second. That is the only lens that consistently explains his actions.

He railed about the false evidence that led to the invasion of Iraq.

And pardons one of the men that orchestrated it and punished those that disputed that false evidence.

It only appears contradiction until you put Trump first above all else.

The move rallies a conservative base that defended Libby.
And it dings Comey for having successfully prosecuted Libby.
And it sends a signal to Cohen and Manafort et al...."Hold tight, don't talk. I got your back".

Good luck to him on the strategy. I am a believer that the truth wins in such scenarios. Not optimistic, but lived long enough to see how these things always work.

He also railed against Obama. I expect he'll pardon Blagojevich eventually, too.

Why? Blagojevich was a corrupt Democrat. That A-hole deserves every year he serves.

This will turn into a derailing...if you are really interested in my take, U2U me.

Perhaps Trump can hire Scooter to help with his war in Syria. Scooter certainly gained plenty of experience with Iraq with his deepstate neocon friends.

The hypocrisy here is thick as a steaming pile of covfefe.

I will say this with a smile


Amazing indicator of the current state of ATS that:

1) I can casually take my time to post breaking news like this. No rush to post questionable trump actions.
2) It gets less flags than obscure news of Obama's brother getting pulled over for speeding.

Wild to watch the bias real time.

That said I have grown to cherish this reaction:

This is exactly what I would have thought Trump would do. BAM!! In the art of war there is a passage:
" If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him."

An irritated Comey will lash out verbally and risk outing himself in front of the media. This move also seems to serve the notion that the corruption that we had seen in the last few administrations will be brought forth. While Libby was a member of the Bush White House, he didn't get much more then a commutative sentence from Bush. On the other hand both Bush and Obama had bent over backwards to pardon less savory characters from their crimes.

Libby took the bullet for Cheney, and got rewarded by being labeled a criminal. Libby could see this action by Trump as a way of getting revenge on those that basically ignored him when he stood up for them.


***IMPORTANT PERSONAL NOTE***



I don't care for how the Valerie Plane event took place, it was dirty, nasty, and out right illegal. There are other issues that could be brought up about this pardon, but I'll just going to keep this event as what Trump is doing vs, the media's nonsense of how chaotic they think he is. "Art of War" is Trumps play book, but nobody is looking at it.
