“Trump has been in a foul mood since Monday, snapping at aides about his rally in PA and complaining about news media coverage of the investigations.

“In his view, people close to him said, Democrats are seeking to render his presidency illegitimate.”

President Trump spoke about the Mueller investigation on Wednesday in the Rose Garden.

We are all witnessing Trump’s massive effort to cover up his criminal behavior. As POTUS he is incapable of accomplishing anything. Trump’s printed sign at his Rose Garden press session today shows this was pre-planned by the White House. Donald likes playing the victim.

Trump cites Pelosi's statement this morning on a "cover up."

"Instead of walking in happily to a meeting, I walk in to look at people who said I was doing a cover-up. I don't do cover-ups. You people know that probably better than anybody," Trump says to reporters.

"I don't do cover-ups," Trump says, making no mention of the hush money payments to a porn star and a Playmate to secure their silence about his affairs in the weeks before 2016 election

.@ActingSecDef Shanahan on Wednesday approved a request from @DHSgov to build 6 tented camps to house at least 7,500 migrants, DoD & Congressional officials tell CNN. The request also asked the Pentagon to provide ~350 personnel to help run non-detention related camp operations

Pentagon now officially confirming: "The Dept. of Defense will loan on-hand tents to DHS & erect_tents on prepared land identified by DHS." The six camps will eventually be located in Arizona (Tucson & Yuma) & Texas (Tornillo, Donna, Laredo, & Del Rio).

 That's not a hard one considering the Russian interference and the fact that,

despite the cheating,

you still didn't win the popular vote. LOL

After Trump abruptly left legislative leaders meeting today, Kellyanne Conway asked Pelosi if she wanted to respond to what Trump had said. "I'll respond to the president, not staff," Pelosi said. "Wow, that's really pro-woman of you," Kellyanne Conway said back, per aides.

No, That's really Speaker Pelosi demanding her respect as a Congressional leader.

After Trump's stunt with Pelosi and Schumer over infrastructure, consideration of impeachment may be much more viable.  Trump has stated he will not do his job as president by refusing to cooperate with the Democrats.

However, it is still somewhat of a slippery slope.  His job is to carry out the laws enacted by Congress, but so far Congress has not actually enacted any laws that he should carry out.  Such as infrastructure, prescription medicine cost containment, health care, immigration, etc.  Primarily due to Dictator McConnell's almost total control of the Senate and the GOPers cowardice toward Trump.

The House Dems need to go ahead and pass reasonable bills that can be forwarded to the Senate.  Forcing McConnell to deal with them.  Leave all the New Deal, Medicare for All, free college, unlimited immigration, etc. out of them.  Make them reasonable enough that 10 Republican senators can vote for them - it they have the courage.

But it is definitely a dumb move on his part as to giving the House Dems more grounds to investigate him and possibly have impeachment hearings.  When the GOP senators go home to run for re-election (McConnell among them), they will have to explain why they have not brought home the bacon for over a year or two.

Congress has already passed a bipartisan bill (twice now I believe) to strengthen protections for the 2020 election but McConnell refuses to bring it to a vote.

While he points to democrats as being obstructionists Mitch does it times 100.
