    I think Trump is losing it having a melt down.

    Whether or not there has been, the Donald's refusal to cooperate until investigations are halted sure sounds like obstruction of justice to me.

    Relax, Kiddo, there's an ancient saying something like this: "The mills of the gods grind slow but they grind very small." The Donald hasn't been ground fine enough. Wait till the Supreme Court approves all the subpoenas against him, his kids, and his minions.

    Yep, so much for the "Party of Family Values" and "... Fiscal Responsibility".

    From William Butler Yeats' "The Second Coming":

    "Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity."

    I think the best strategy for Democrats is to continue calmly carefully to investigate Trump in a lawful manner. That is where the most bang for the buck is as far as showing Trump as the unhinged person he is without getting too vehement about it.

    He is so thin-skinned...

    I also think that he should be allowed to order whatever investigations he wants into the Russia investigation. Whether they find any wrong-doing or not, I am confident that the employees in the intelligence community will unbiased enough.

    And then Trump will just look foolish and as impotent as he must fear to be at this point.

    I agree, whether Barr's investigation on behalf of Trump reveals something or not.
