Mueller, Leakers, Kim Jung Un, MBS, Putin Unbound

Apparently, a lot of people went unbound after the election besides Trump.

Mueller made a plea deal with Michael Cohen about lying to Congress about Trump’s still seeking a Trump Tower in Moscow, late in the election.  Mueller probably held off on this just so that he would not be charged with interfering with the election.  Rudy turned this around, by accusing Mueller of being political and making the deal just when Trump was going to an international meeting.

Leakers say that Cohen gave 70 hours of interviews to Mueller, as well as other leaks.  The leading news sources can no longer be accused of influencing the election.

Trump has spent a lifetime buttering up customers to make his deals.  He has tried this on Putin, Xi Jinping, Kim Jung Un, and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.  These guys are far from the suckers that Trump was hoping for.  They are just the opposite.  Men who will stop at nothing to rule.

They all went unbound themselves.  Kim build more middle bases.  Xi countered Trump’s tariff threats.  MBS may have ordered the Khashoggi murder, but probably we will never know.  The Senate voted to break off assistance with the Saudi war in Yemen.  Putin seized three Ukrainian vessels and their sailors for exercising their rights to travel from the Black Sea to the Sea of Azov.  With the seizure of Crimea, Russia now completely surrounds the Sea of Azov.

No wonder Trump went on a tweet storm against his standard domestic targets in a twitter  retweet of them behind bars.  And criticizing Michael Cohen for not going to jail like a loyal co-conspirator would.  Like Manafort, who lied to Mueller, and who’s lawyer was a conduit of Mueller information to Trump’s lawyers.  No wonder Trump has been trashing the future of the planet by allowing climate change.

Trump hates to lose a deal, but to lose all of his deals at once is crushing.  It even caused him to cancel a meeting with his favorite bud, Putin.

Day 2 of Trump Unbound.  What does he do when he gets tired of losing?

By the way, Democrat TJ Cox was declared the winner of CA 21, the only uncalled House seat, making the House 235 Democrats to 200 Republicans.   The Democrats gained 40 seats.
