a lesson, as per Susan Collins?

What do yu think of his firing the Vindman Brothers? Do you think there was a chance of those twin brothers doing a "Parent Trap" on Trump.

Or how about firing Sondland despite his $1M contribution to Trump's inauguration and all the donations to GOP Senate members. They're sorry that Trump fired them

Trump has every right to fire or reassign anybody in the White House. Furthermore, loyalty is paramount (as long as it doesn't involve breaking the law a la the Watergate break-in). In this day and age, political enemies are vicious. We know for a fact that people high in the DoJ/FBI under Obama infiltrated the Trump campaign and also the Trump White House with the intention of taking him down. To put it another way, enemies sought to prevent Trump from being freely and fairly elected, and then after he was elected they sought to make it impossible for him to execute his duties as President. Some might call it treasonous behavior.

But in any case, there is no moral or legal obligation for any President to keep any person in the White House. If that person is actively operating as a political enemy, he has an obligation to remove them. The President was elected to enact his agenda. The opposition has legitimate avenues to work through, such as the legislative process in Congress or the judicial process in the courts, or even the arena of public opinion.

The lesson to be learned is by the Democrats. They have been throwing everything they can find or create or simply lie about, in hopes something may stick. Everything from portraying him as an unlikeable person all the way up to calling him criminal and impeaching him. Yet the public doesn't care. Trump's favorability only goes up! Even many registered Democrats disliked the impeachment.

Pelosi, Shumer, Schiff, et al have now made Trump bullet proof. Absent clear proof of significantly bad criminal behavior, there is nothing that will damage or remove Trump. This is like an employee winning a big discrimination lawsuit against their employer - the employee is now almost impossible to fire in the future even for legitimate reasons.

If Trump wins the next election, and all indications are he is going to win by a huge margin, the Dems will only look even more foolish than they already do if they keep trying to smear him.

You have your opinion and others have theirs.

“Fact is, no one knows or can know what will happen to Trump in 2020 — or to his challengers. No one knows what else will happen in 2020 that will affect and perhaps determine the November outcome.”

Trump smears himself. Anyone who can't see his moral failings and deliberate attempts to hurt anyone who doesn't agree with his sociopathic views is as bad as he is.

Albeit, Trump's tweet about Roger Stone was a fly in the ointment for Barr, (although I thinks its overrated by the media) it did draw attention to differences in the treatment of Republicans who lie to investigators and Democrats who lie to investigators. That in itself is a good thing. Plus, by the middle of March, no one will remember anything about it.

That's the Democrat electoral strategy: insult everyone who supports your opponent.
How's that working out for them so far?

It also got the media to support Barr against Trump.
This may have been a 4D chess move.

Now everybody is watching. If Stone gets 8 or 9 years, while anti-Trump folks like McCabe walk after doing the same crime, the Dems are going to look worse than they already do.

You guys are too much.

Just wait until Trump starts doing 18D chess, which is just really more narcissism and petty selfishness, but you guys will do a million back flips to paint it as 15,000D chess.

Actually Stone didn't do anything nearly as bad as what McCabe did.
However, that just emphasizes your point about the disparate treatment.

Related to the charges of both Roger Stone and General Flynn, McCabe lied under oath to investigators and walked while Stone and Flynn are looking a jail time. Flynn wasn't even under oath.

Who cares about due process right? McCabe is guilty, because Trump said so.

Don't even bother to note that he was never charged, never tried, and is actually filing a civil case that he was unjustly fired. Also, don't worry about the multiple sources criticizing the DoJ for the way they handled this and kept it open for 2 years, despite no new information or no charges. 87D Chess my friends.

What are you complaining about Tas? McCabe walked. Stone and Flynn went down for lying to the FBI.

So Trumps DoJ just let him go with rock solid evidence? So rock solid that he is suing them for wrongful termination?

Why did Barr and Trump let him go, if he is so evil? You make it seem like they cannot do anything against this massive conspiracy of Dems. What a pile of crap.

Tas, lying to the FBI doesn't necessarily make him evil. I'm sure lying to investigators has different ranges of severity, like other crimes. But to put in perspective, you'd have to compare McCabe's lying to Stone's and Flynn's lying.
