#3 The current DoJ investigations are rapidly approaching the point or level of discovery I thought possible. I now fear for the Orange Man and key DoJ investigatory personnel.

#4 Me, I worry about something else.
It's believed that J. Edgar Hoover blackmailed politicians. It's likely that his successors continued the tradition. Can we be sure that they don't have enough "kompromat" on enough R-senators to assure impeachment?

#5 This is getting out of control.

James B. Stewart is too smart to buy into this bullshit.
That he's fallen for it suggests that lots of otherwise intelligent and fair-minded people have simply lost their good sense when it comes to Orange Man Bad.

Very disturbing.

#6 They do not work for the President, they work for the American people,

Hey - why doesn't a Federal employee look out the window in the morning? So he has something to do in the afternoon!

Fire 1/3 of all Federal employees, save the military.

#8 Years ago a worked for a boss who worked for the vice-president of a large manufacturing company. I was privy to a conversation at the time by the VP of the division with my boss.
The VP popped in and said "He's gone or at least he will be in 5 minutes." IMO, that ought to be an option available to Trump as well to clean out the seditious weasels in the Deep State.

#10 Not unique to the Feds:

John XXIII: In reply to a reporter who asked, "How many people work in the Vatican?", he reportedly said: "About half of them."
