Are We In The ‘End Game’ of the Mueller Investigation?

As several social media users have insinuated over the course of the last few days, there is a belief among the devout democrats that we are in the end game of the Robert Mueller investigation.

It’s easy to agree with them.  There just doesn’t seem to be any way in which this extraordinary event could continue long into the future without some sort of chaotic, cathartic explosion of egos in the coming days.  There’s too much at stake, and far too much emotion involved on the left side of things for it to end pretty.  There will be some sort of chaos; whether it is political or physical will be up to the players on the stage themselves, in Berkeley, Charlottesville, and Washington DC, as well as on Main Street, USA.

One bureaucratic thespian has announced his curtain call today, possibly hoping to avoid the tumult to come.

Top White House officials and sources close to White House counsel Don McGahn tell Axios that McGahn will step down this fall — after Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court, or after the midterms. The president later confirmed Axios’ reporting in a tweet.

The big picture: This potentially puts a successor in charge of fielding a blizzard of requests or subpoenas for documents and testimony if Democrats win control of the House in the midterms. And if the White House winds up fighting special counsel Robert Mueller, an epic constitutional fight could lie ahead.

A source familiar with Flood’s thinking said: “The reason he can represent both Bill Clinton and Donald Trump is because he thinks these investigators come and basically put a target on their backs, trying to overturn every aspect of their lives searching for a crime.”

In the meantime, the indictments of Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort have begun rattling the cages of those involved in #RussiaGate, sensing that Mueller’s major moves will no longer be a distant event on the horizon.

Of course, the left is hoping to time any further interference for the midterm elections, seeing a path to impeachment in a congressional majority.

Maxine Waters Escapes Censure, Goes on MSNBC to Gloat

It certainly doesn’t appear as though Waters has learned her lesson.

Maxine Waters is no stranger to controversy, especially when it comes to her vision of the role of violence in the political process. Back in 2018, the California Congresswoman told a group of constituents that they should confront staffers for then-President Donald Trump. “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up,” Waters told a crowd in California over the weekend. “If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd, and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.” Then, just days ahead of the jury’s deliberations in the Derek Chauvin trial, Waters again suggested that Americans should be “more confrontational” regarding the case. This comment drew widespread criticism from her colleagues in Congress, and Maxine was soon facing a censure by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Now that this effort to admonish Waters has failed, the longtime Democrat seemed to take a victory lap on MSNBC. On MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” Tuesday, Waters knocked the censure efforts led by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. The vote to table McCarthy’s censure resolution was 216-210 and split along party lines. “Of course, I’m criticized all the time, and of course, the Republicans make a target of me, but as you know, I am passionate on these issues,” Waters told host Joy Reid. “I’m so sorry that it causes pain oftentimes with my colleagues. Many times they’re in these districts where they are frightened, where they have a lot of racism, where they haven’t moved to the point that they can have a decent conversation about these issues and sometimes it’s very difficult for them. “But they stood up with me today,” she added. “They put…
