Meanwhile GUILIANI thinks he can shut MUELLER down in a week.
Very misleading statement that not even YOUR source can attribute to Rudy. I checked other news reports, including CNN. No backup for you there either. Quite an embellishment on your part, especially since there is great personal and professional respect between Mueller and Rudy.

Your own Politico article says what many of the articles say regarding Rudy's view of his role and planned efforts:
Giuliani, who's known Mueller for decades, has said his job is to speed along the Russia probe, which encompasses questions of whether Trump tried to obstruct justice, including negotiations about Trump's participation in an interview.
Rudy was quoted by CNN as hoping for a list of needs from Mueller in order to provide what is necessary to reach a conclusion. Rudy said that it could wrap up as quickly as two weeks if both sides come together -- NOT that he would "shut MUELLER down in a week." I don't even know how you could even pretend to know what Rudy thinks. 55555

The Politico article is all speculation and hypotheticals regarding any legal conflicts. I would think that if Rudy was as important to all of Mueller's digging as you and Politico seem to think, Rudy would have been called to testify a LONG time ago as a major player, since this is already over a year old. I also give credit to Rudy to know, based on his extensive legal background and access to some of the best legal minds, whether or not there would be a legal conflict in taking this role with Trump.

If Trump has something in his past before he ever ran for president that becomes his undoing, I won't be surprised; and it's how the political cookie crumbles. Oh well. But there's one thing of which I am absolutely certain: Trump is doing what he believes will help America and Working Americans prosper; and I can see the improvements in many areas just through the explosion of optimism in the private sector that reflects itself throughout the society. I can't say the same for the last FOUR of his predecessors, and one in particular did all he could to destroy the country. If Trump goes down, then he goes down. The Law and Blind Justice should always be the focus -- even when it negatively affects people who I'd like to see succeed.

So keep hoping and hating, jj. Eventually, you're bound to predict something correctly. 555

The #LOSING continues.

"Ronny Jackson withdraws as VA secretary nominee"

https://edition.cnn.com/2018/04/26/poli ... index.html
(CNN)Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson has withdrawn as President Donald Trump's nominee to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs, he said in a statement Thursday morning.

His nomination was hampered by a flurry of allegations about Jackson's professional conduct.

Jackson said he was motivated to withdraw from consideration because the allegations against him "have become a distraction" for Trump and his agenda.

For those concerned, no relation to this guy:

Nineteen more of Trump's nominees approved in the US Senate today -- including Ambassador to Germany and Secretary of State.

Ohhhh, Ambassador to Germany! WOW! Our interests with regard to sauerkraut are in good hands once more.

How many Secretaries of State will there be anyhow by the time this is a pile of smoking embers? Does the position even matter anymore under Donny T? Won't he just over-rule and do his own thing from one minute to next? Not to mention the evil machinations of Dark Lord BOLTON all set to sabotage any possible peace. It's gonna be hilarious when the North Koreans and China CLOWN the Prez come "negotiation" time. Fake-out of the Century in the making, that one.

Bravo. Nineteen more spineless "yes men" approved at the mercurial speed of a year and 4 months after election. And the sorry success rate of 19, versus failure rate of 24 who had to be withdrawn. Plus the 53 who had to be sacked or resigned.

It looks like more have joined in on the "List" thing due to this guy's SERIAL FAILURES at governance beyond the confines of his immediate oval office / mar-a-lago surroundings, and gauche Twitter-While-On-The-Toilet-Leadership-Style

24 withdrawn, 53 dismissed or resigned = 77 TOTAL #losing.

And despite poor choices, blocks by Democrats, undermining by the Deep State and a media that is as hopeful for failure as many on here, Trump proves to be a multi-tasker and continues to move his agenda forward. His approval ratings are also rising. I'm hoping for the continued success of the economy, society and the American Worker.

And despite the best laid plans of mice, men, chimps, and mofos, YET ANOTHER TRUMP LAWYER HITTING THE DOOR, TY COBB RINGS THE GONG.

TALK ABOUT THE PERFECT EXCUSE.
Ty Cobb, the lawyer leading President Trump’s legal team in the special counsel’s Russian investigation, is retiring and Trump is planning on hiring an attorney who represented Bill Clinton during his impeachment as a replacement, a report on Wednesday said.

​“It has been an honor to serve the country in this capacity at the White House. I wish everybody well moving forward,” Cobb told the New York Times, adding that he informed the president weeks ago that he planned on retiring.

He said he would remain on the job until the end of the month to help Emmet Flood’s transition, the report said.

Trump’s legal team has seen some major changes in the past couple of months.

Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a longtime confidant of the president, joined the legal team last month, and John Dowd, then the lead attorney representing Trump in Robert Mueller’s probe, quit In March.

Cobb’s departure comes as reports revealed that Mueller told Trump’s lawyers in March that he would use a grand jury subpoena to force the president to answer questions in the Russian investigation.

And the long exit march continues this time the primo CLIENT CHANGE SKEPTIC

Scott Pruitt quits as EPA chief amid ethics controversies

https://nypost.com/2018/07/05/scott-pru ... -scandals/
Embattled EPA chief Scott Pruitt resigned under mounting pressure on Thursday — as the number of ethical controversies over his personal and professional behavior continued to pile up.

Pruitt was facing 13 congressional ethics investigations over his lavish spending of taxpayer money on security and first-class flights, as well as a sweetheart deal he cut on a DC condo owned by a lobbyist whose husband had business with the EPA.

In a resignation letter issued to media outlets, Pruitt heaped praise on the president and expressed no regret for any of his own actions.

“It is extremely difficult for me to cease serving you in this role first because I count it a blessing to be serving you in any capacity, but also, because of the transformative work that is occurring,” Pruitt wrote.

“However, the unrelenting attacks on me personally, my family, are unprecedented and have taken a sizable toll on all of us.”

Trump said in a second tweet that Deputy Administrator Andrew Wheeler, a former coal industry executive, will assume the acting administrator position at the EPA on Monday.

“I have no doubt that Andy will continue on with our great and lasting EPA agenda. We have made tremendous progress and the future of the EPA is very bright!” Trump wrote.

Pruitt’s resignation came days after two of his former senior staffers spoke to House Oversight Committee investigators and made new allegations about how he conducted himself.

Samantha Dravis, Pruitt’s former policy chief at the EPA, told the investigators last week that he had made clear to her before and after he became administrator that he wanted the attorney general’s job, held then and now by Jeff Sessions.

Pruitt denied her account.

During his one-year tenure, Pruitt crisscrossed the country to speak with industry groups and hobnob with GOP donors, but he showed little interest in listening to advocates he derided as “the environmental left.”

The feeling was mutual.

“Despite his brief tenure, Pruitt was the worst EPA chief in history,” said Kieran Suckling, executive director of the Center for Biological Diversity.

“His corruption was his downfall, but his pro-polluter policies will have our kids breathing dirtier air long after his many scandals are forgotten.”

Like Trump, Pruitt is a climate-change skeptic and a fierce critic of the Paris climate agreement, from which Trump withdrew.

None of the others have mattered, and neither will this one. His successor has already been chosen, and the slashing of regulations will continue.

Dems get a scalp that won't do anything to help their electoral prospects, and Trump won't miss a beat. :)
