Behind me at the top, my framed copy of my 1973 record of the missing 18 minutes. A nearly successful hoax.

Trump WH strategy appears to be, “go ahead, impeach me, dare you.” And the Dems might fall for it.

Also Comey says Trump will be indicted when he’s no longer President. Comey will be cheering the proceedings from his cell.

AOC and Bernie going after the credit card companies for high interest rates, want cap at 15%. This is an attack on the Senator from Credit Card, Joe Biden. Plus it’s not a bad idea at all.
