Is President Trump taking a dip in the Swamp??

"Trump has now publicly acknowledged that McCabe violated several federal laws, not the least of which is the Hatch Act. Yet he now proposes to allow McCabe to retire next year, keeping his federal pension and benefits."

Not much different than pardoning dirt bags from prison.
Nixon never served time.
Clinton never served time. Either of them.
The list is long, nothing new here.

He's learning that you have to give a little to get a little. The fact that he's showing leniency tells me that he got something out of McCabe that will help him.

I really don't know what's going on and I sure don't trust the media to tell me. One thing I have noticed about Trump is he let's folks hang themselves. McCabe is done for no matter what and while he is set to retire in March that's a long way off. The inspector generals report is due out soon and it's possible McCabe will be exposed and hung by the report and if he isn't then it exposes the IG because we have all seen McCabes corruption.

I am just watching the show and not too worried yet. The swamp is filled with all kinds of creatures who want power and will throw their cohorts under the bus to get it. Get some popcorn and beer and enjoy the show, best potus ever.

Using a sharp knife for a screwdriver is to be avoided when possible,,, the procedures are there and available to be utilized as a executive privilege but the cost in executive political capital will be diminished,, Trump is presently operating on a narrow margin of political and public capital.

AG Sessions needs to grow bigger balls and at least investigate with just equality the FBI and reopen the biased Hillary investigation,,, we are owed that.

After a year of watching and getting pissed that President Trump wasn't attacking and taking the Deep State head on, I have come to the conclusion I was wrong. Trump is playing the whole world like a fiddle including Deep State. Trump has not only allowed but encouraged the Deep State Shadow Government to run rogue and try to destroy him but he is a master at revealing the TRUTH at the right time. Over and over they attack Trump and a little tweet disarms them. Doesn't take much effort on Trumps part for them to destroy each other. President Trump meanwhile is busy getting his agenda thru while the enemy is self-destructing. If President Trump would have attacked the Deep State head on in the beginning, he would have lost and got nothing done. That is what the enemy was expecting. President Trump is a Master of Deception and when the enemy is weakened enough and it's soft underbelly is fully exposed, he will deliver the kill shot.

No, the deal is off. McCabe wanted immunity to leave early, and Trump said no...........no deal.

the responsibility lies with congress, the power of the purse.

virtually all of this deep statist criminality would be resolved by defunding the federal deep state machine -- and a couple hundred of the right funerals to make sure habitual statist lawlessness is discouraged.



ain't that right, james martin?

immunity agreements typically involve the party seeking immunity for their criminal actions divulging evidence to convict a bigger fish, along with a non-disclosure article to silence further investigation.

this retirement deal was a red herring all along.

it didn't work.
