I now work in the county DA's office. So far, its been one of the more interesting gigs I've had. This morning, I sat in on a presentation by a police detective about a gang-related attempted murder that happened last week.

Well, Trump can’t be indicted per DOJ-OLC memos written in the 70s and 2000. If Mueller believes that Trump committed a crime by coordinating with the Russians, Mueller May submit a report to Congress recommending the impeachment of Trump.

Exactly the way it should be because I remember that was what happened during the Clinton Monica Lewinsky saga. Kenneth Starr referred the case to the House which impeached Bill Clinton but was acquitted in the Senate trial. The bottom line is that Dr Mueller will do his job well and will let the chips fall wherever. Trump can cry all he wants but he can't stop Director Mueller from completing his assignment.

Why Democratic presidential prospects are rushing to back Georgia's Stacey Abrams

Stacey Abrams' bid to become the first female African-American governor in America is the hottest ticket in Democrats' shadow 2020 presidential primary.

In Georgia's Tuesday primary, Abrams, the former state House minority leader, faces former state Rep. Stacey Evans for the Democratic nomination in what will be a closely-watched governor's race.
Just ahead of the primary, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders endorsed Abrams, and California Sen. Kamala Harris visited Georgia to campaign for her. In January, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker was in Atlanta for events supporting Abrams.
Nina Turner, the president of Our Revolution, the organization that emerged from Sanders' 2016 presidential campaign, spent the weekend in Georgia turning out the vote for Abrams.
The national figures' interest in the race and national support for Abrams is in part a result of her appeal to both the Democrats' progressive wing and its African-American base.

There's also Georgia's status as a key state in both the 2020 Democratic presidential primary. It votes on Super Tuesday, and black Democratic voters in the South are a crucial source of delegates. The formerly deep-red state has also emerged as competitive in general elections.
Hillary Clinton's strength with black voters in the South was at the core of her strategy to clinch the party's 2016 nomination, and Sanders was never able to make up the ground he'd lost there later in the nominating process.
Abrams' emergence as a Democratic star, fueled by her calls for massive black voter registration efforts, became clear to a national audience in August 2017, when the progressive gathering Netroots Nation was held in Atlanta.
Abrams was among the biggest stars at the event. And Evans attempted to speak, too. But protesters accusing Evans of taking stances on education issues similar to President Donald Trump's education secretary, Betsy DeVos, drowned her out for about 10 minutes with chants of "trust black women."
Evans is still seen as a strong candidate, and amid all the national attention, Abrams' campaign has become sensitive to the potential perception that she is ignoring local voices.
Abrams' list of endorsements on her campaign website first highlights a long list of Georgia Democrats and local organizations. Only at the very end of the list is a group of "Additional Supporters" comprised of national figures.
"Of course, we are really thrilled about the national support and endorsements we have received from senators from members of Congress, but really what we want folks to know is we have a really strong base of local support as well," an Abrams aide said, arguing that Abrams has told supporters and aides that her campaign is "grounded here in Georgia but nationally known."

Why do powerful people behave like people with no power in matters of sex? What's the difference between these #metoo guys and the incels? This is just crazy.

Hopefully though in Freeman's case it's not actual harassment but misunderstood signals and behaviour.

Dont mind them very soon, simply telling a lady she is sexy, will be deemed sexually inappropriate behaviour.Telling her a second time, will be deemed sexual assault.

We are heading there

Those of us who loathes the coming of Trump as our president are being proved right. What kind of government separates children from their mothers and fathers especially when they are running away from tyranny and violence in their home countries ?. As at now, ICE is telling us that 1.500 children can't be located. This is beginning of hitlerism in America and hopefully, Americans of all shades and colors will show their displeasure about these inhumane acts. What a pity a beautiful country is being run down the sewage by a bunch of Nazi clowns who thinks of others that do not look like them as animals.
