Mid Month update - THE LOG JAM BREAKS LOOSE!

The last couple of months have been difficult.  I'm finally over whatever it was that slammed me. I don't think its just me, I see all sort of people struggling with illness, or one issue or another. And then there's that viral mess in China... 

BTW Denice's husband is not feeling well either,  please send energies to her and her husband (she's asked me to not name her family members).   They do not know what the problem is yet. 

The "interim" between the old and new has seemed to drag on forever... with no hope of change in sight until the last week!  And could anyone stand to hear yet one more word on impeachment?  That too blew away like a tumbleweed down the old streets of Tombstone.

Then yesterday it was like a log jam busted loose! We've known since 2017 the corruption that is in the US District Court in DC, but what a whirlwind went through there yesterday. I am pasting some tweets (in text that can't be deleted from twitter by twitter)

Two down, how many more to go? The D.C. U.S. Attorney's office is apparently a rat's nest of corruption controlled by rogue operatives hired by Robert Mueller to overthrow Trump. The sooner these clowns all self-deport, the better.

Scoop: Trump pulls nomination for former U.S. attorney for D.C. to Treasury post

President Trump is withdrawing his nomination for former U.S. attorney for D.C. Jessie Liu to serve as the Treasury Department's undersecretary for terrorism and financial crimes, a top position overseeing economic sanctions, according to two sources with direct knowledge.

The big picture: Liu was confirmed in September 2017 to lead the largest U.S. attorney's office in the country, overseeing a number of politically charged prosecutions that included the case against Trump associates Roger Stone, Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort and other spinoffs from the Mueller investigation.

* Liu stepped down from the U.S. attorney's office last month after Trump announced his intention to nominate her to the Treasury position in December 2019.

* Liu was expected to stay in her position through her confirmation — with a hearing before the Senate Banking Committee scheduled for this Thursday — but was unexpectedly informed last month that Attorney General Bill Barr was replacing her with his close adviser Timothy Shea.

* She was informed that Trump was pulling her nomination Tuesday afternoon.

Behind the scenes: This was "the president's call," according to a former administration official familiar with the situation.

The decision, which was made today, has administration officials questioning the circumstances that led to Trump changing his mind — with the developments in the Roger Stone case today being the only new information they are aware of.

* Four career prosecutors from the D.C. attorney's office withdrew from the Stone case after the Justice Department overruled them on a sentencing recommendation.
