Today the former special consul Rober Mueller gave a press conference where he made a public statement regarding the release of his report and on the ongoing back and forth between The White House, Congress and the Media. Mueller in so few words, referred to Congress that Impeachment proceedings ought to begin against the President. That if the Donald J. Trump was not a sitting president, he would be indicted. That if they had confidence that the President did not commit a crime, then they would have said so. Rober Mueller today showed the American public and the world how deeply in a crisis we are truly in.

33 – Impeachment

President Trump has been waging political war on his enemies for some time and with the release of the Mueller report as well as a number of other investigations into the President, and oversight committee hearings, subpoenas and all else, the president is ramping up his rhetoric, and his combativeness with the coequal branch of government- Congress. Currently the House is considering beginning impeachment proceedings, and a number of requests by the House to testify have been ignored. Should the President be impeached?

32 – Nancy Pelosi, The Great Maintainer

Nancy Pelosi is the antithesis to the progressive wing of the Democratic party which is the true core of the party, she consistently works to undermine her own party and is one of the establishment’s core figures in American politics – her leadership is a hindrance to the Democratic Party, and in some ways to the country. She is excellent, great even at her ability to maintain the status quo.
