The latest burst of hail

Charles Pierce at Esquire says things are speeding up on Trump’s train to the cliff edge.

The latest burst of hail comes from a federal appeals court in Washington. From the Washington Post:

The request followed closely on the heels of Friday’s conviction of longtime Trump friend Roger Stone. Testimony and evidence at his trial appeared to cast doubt on written replies from Trump to Mueller about the president’s knowledge about attempts by his 2016 campaign to learn more about the release of hacked Democratic emails by the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks. “Did the president lie? Was the president not truthful in his responses to the Mueller investigation,” General Counsel Douglas N. Letter said. “The House is trying to determine whether the current president should remain in office. This is unbelievably serious and it’s happening right now, very fast.”

If the president* lied to Mueller’s people, that’s the entire ballgame.

Is it though? If Barr and the Senate won’t admit it’s the entire ballgame then it isn’t, right?

And that’s not even to get into the possibility that he—or nature itself—may be crafting a medical bailout for him even as we speak. (Reports are that he received the Fed chair in the residence today, and not in the Oval Office. Edith Wilson, white courtesy phone, please.) The rivets are all popping and the gears are springing loose. And now there’s a whistleblower from the IRS charging that a political appointee at Treasury may have monkey-wrenched an audit of either the president* or of Vice President Mike Pence. The hailstorm’s getting stronger, and the jackasses are running out of room.
