No doubt. Poor guy...Mitch knows all too well that anything can set off the impatient mad man. Kudos to McCain, Corker, and anyone else in a position of power who has told the spoiled "billionaire" to FO.

Trump was not elected, he was appointed by a bunch republican officials in accordance with an archaic system, aka Electoral College, that goes way, way back to a time when only white male landowners had the right to vote ... any questions?

Ironic, isn't it? Trump became POTUS #45 precisely because of the Electoral College which was designed to thwart an attempt by a demagogue seeking the White House. In the old days, the popular vote didn't count for much. In fact, it was hardly counted. It wasn't until Jackson...blah, blah blah. And, it irks Trump bigly to have to - deep down inside - realize that Hillary got more popular votes than he did.

What I have not learned yet is whether McConnell has tiny hands or will be in an IQ-off against Ill Duce Trump in the foreseeable future. And I would like to know these things as I keep up with current events.

Good for TRUMP. I think he realizes by now that he has good Republican support, but good is not enough when you only have a slim majority and the problem with his agenda being thwarted lies not with Republican Leadership in the Senate, but rather the Republican SWAMP PEOPLE, whose loyalty
is with the GLOBALIST OLIGARCHY.

True, enough. Liberals are the scum of the earth, especially the Clintons, Holder and Obama.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has launched a full-scale probe into a Russian nuclear bribery case, demanding several federal agencies disclose whether they knew the FBI had uncovered the corruption before the Obama administration in 2010 approved a controversial uranium deal with Moscow.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the committee chairman, gets his first chance to raise the issue in public on Wednesday when he questions Attorney General Jeff Sessions during an oversight hearing.


Though the hearing was scheduled for other purposes, aides said they expected Grassley to ask Sessions questions about a story published in The Hill on Tuesday that disclosed the FBI had uncovered evidence showing Russian nuclear officials were engaged in a racketeering scheme involving bribes, kickbacks and money laundering designed to expand Russian President Vladimir Putin's atomic energy business on U.S. soil.

The evidence was first gathered in 2009 and 2010 but Department of Justice officials waited until 2014 to bring any charges. In between that time, President Obama's multi-agency Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) gave approval to Russia's Rosatom to buy a Canadian mining company called Uranium One that controlled 20 percent of America's uranium deposits.

The committee's members at the time included former Attorney General Eric Holder and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whose husband collected large speech fees and millions in charitable donations from Russia and other entities interested in the outcome of the decision.

Sen. Grassley presses Sessions on Obama-era uranium deal
Republican senator from Iowa questions the attorney general about whether the Justice Department has investigated whether Russia compromised Obama administration decisions.

A top Senate Republican is probing potential “conflicts of interest” for Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration regarding the 2010 approval of a controversial uranium deal with a Russian company, amid new details about donations from “interested parties” and an FBI corruption probe involving employees of the same Russian firm.

“This committee has an obligation to get to the bottom of this issue,” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said Wednesday, at the start of a hearing with Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

The Hill reported a day earlier that the FBI had evidence as early as 2009 that Russian operatives used bribes, kickbacks and other dirty tactics to expand Moscow’s atomic energy footprint in the U.S.-- but the Obama administration approved the uranium deal benefiting Moscow anyway.

Grassley on Wednesday released a series of letters he fired off last week to 10 federal agencies, addressing those issues in detail and raising the question of whether the committee that approved the transaction was aware of the FBI probe. The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) included then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
