Adam Schiff (or Neal Katyal?)

Although someone here at DU made a good case for Neal Katyal. I thought that was a great idea.

Does anybody else like the idea of Neal Katyal?

Neal Kumar Katyal (born March 12, 1970) is an American lawyer and academic. He is a partner at Hogan Lovells and the Paul and Patricia Saunders Professor of National Security Law at Georgetown University Law Center.[2][3] During the Obama Administration, Katyal served as Acting Solicitor General of the United States from May 2010[4] until June 2011. Previously, Katyal served as an attorney in the Solicitor General's office, and as Principal Deputy Solicitor General in the U.S. Justice Department.

Katyal has argued more Supreme Court cases than any other minority lawyer in American history.[5] He is a self-described "extremist centrist".[6]


Howard Stern has been trying to get this point through to the MAGAts for

years: Trump loathes you, he wouldn't be seen with you, he wouldn't allow you into Mar-a-Lago, he'd throw you out.

But this pattern with Trump and his kids is a repeat of what happened with Trump and his siblings with Fred Senior. You don't step out of line, and Daddy holds the purse strings. They remain children forever. Coping mechanisms they develop in childhood to "survive" don't serve them as adults, but they don't abandon them.

"I'm a total act and I don't understand why people don't get it"

Trump to Scaramucci.

Anthony Scaramucci Claims Trump Told Him He's a 'Total Act' in New Book By Washington Post Reporters


Great article. This sentence rather leaps off the page:

Shame is worse than death for a pathological narcissist, because it exposes some flaw in him, even if it is a natural human flaw.

Shame Intolerance is superficially dealt with in The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump, in nowhere near the depth it is explored in this article.

Ever since reading Peter Strzok's book, I've wondered if there was

and still is a counterintelligence investigation into Trump that we don't know about. He strongly suggests that such investigations were opened on more Trump administration officials than we know.

Secondly, there's no good reason why one couldn't be opened (or, similarly, a counterespionage investigation) if there is sufficient grounds for doing so. His communications could legally be monitored.

The FBI could currently be monitoring individuals with whom Trump might come into contact if he does mess around with foreign adversaries, just like Carter Page (?), Mike Flynn and George Papadopoulos (?) were wrangled into investigations because of their contacts with people already being monitored.

Thirdly, in the 2018/19 timeframe, we heard a lot about sealed indictments. I'm not aware of any follow-up, so I don't know if those indictments were ever unsealed. Is it possible there are unsealed indictments already waiting for Trump?

Just this week I purchased a simple leather toggle necklace, nothing special about

it whatsoever, and it was also branded as "survival gear" and made by a guy who calls his company Survival Gear U.S.A., and on the receipt he wrote a handwritten note thanking me, and in big letters he wrote "Please Stay Safe!"

From what I could tell, all he makes are men's braided leather necklaces.

I don't understand why a braided leather toggle necklace is survival gear that somehow enhances my safety in a dangerous world?

Very strange.

I wonder if we've finally got a "satellite killer" to checkmate Russia's

alleged "satellite killers."

That is, if there really is such a thing.

Russia has unleashed a satellite killer: US officials



Just watched this interview with Mary Trump. In addition to his physical woes, mental illness and cognitive decline, she points out that his fragile ego will never allow him to put himself in a position of losing ever again. She believes her uncle is experiencing humiliation, helplessness and rage unlike anything he's ever had to face before, and there's no one to rescue him, and that he'll never want to even risk experiencing these feelings again.


And look at this thread about the firing of a cybersecurity specialist in DHS

and some of the comments, trying to determine the implications of the firing:


I don't know who gives a shit either. Malaise, it's like you said yesterday:

Paraphrasing: how dare he even have had the temerity to run for a second term after killing a quarter of a million Americans.

I can't even get past that. That was one of the truest things I've read all year.

It's an insult to every American that he even ran for re-election.
