Grand jury issues subpoenas for associates of former National Security Adviser Micheal Flynn, Donald Trump reported to be screaming at his TV sets.

Courtesy of CNN: 

Federal prosecutors have issued grand jury subpoenas to associates of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn seeking business records, as part of the ongoing probe of Russian meddling in last year's election, according to people familiar with the matter. CNN learned of the subpoenas hours before President Donald Trump fired FBI director James Comey. 

The subpoenas represent the first sign of a significant escalation of activity in the FBI's broader investigation begun last July into possible ties between Trump campaign associates and Russia. 

The subpoenas issued in recent weeks by the US Attorney's Office in Alexandria, Virginia, were received by associates who worked with Flynn on contracts after he was forced out as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014, according to the people familiar with the investigation.

CNN learned of the subpoenas "hours before" Trump fired Comey?

Could that be the actual reason WHY Comey was kicked to the curb?

You may remember that I posted that Keith Olbermann video on Saturday where he suggested that there was a grand jury already in place.

We received some blow back on that but it appears that he was on the money.

In other news Donald Trump is currently losing his shit.

Donald Trump was so frustrated by the ongoing investigation into his administration's links with Russia he would sometimes scream at television when news concerning it came on, according to one of his advisers. 

The US President has been growing increasingly enraged at his inability to control the probe exploring allegations of collusion between the Kremlin and his presidential campaign, two advisers told Politico. 

According to the unidentified staff members, Mr Trump repeatedly asked aides why the allegations would not disappear and demanded they defend him publicly. 

It looks like Trump is heading for that breakdown that we all predicted right after the election.

    OT?"He sent his longtime private security guard to deliver the termination letter in a manila folder to FBI headquarters."He had grown enraged by the Russia investigation, two advisers said, frustrated by his inability to control the MUSHROOMing narrative around Russia. "Trump had grown angry with the Russia investigation — particularly Comey admitting in front of the Senate that the FBI was investigating his campaign — and that the FBI director wouldn't support HIS claims that President Barack Obama had tapped his phones in Trump Tower."By Tuesday evening, the president was watching the coverage of his decision and frustrated no one was on TV defending him, a White House official said. He wanted surrogates out there beating the drum." OR SOMEONE?
    "Trump received letters from Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, and Jeff Sessions, the attorney general, calling for Comey's dismissal,"several other people familiar with the events said Trump had talked about the firing for more than a week, and the letters were written to give him rationale to fire Comey."Trump, as one White House official noted, believed Comey was TOO SOFT on Clinton — not too unfair, as Rosenstein’s letter Tuesday indicated." WTF?
    " the mood was more elated at Roger Stone's house in Florida. Several Stone allies and friends said Stone, who has been frequently mentioned in the investigation, encouraged the president to fire Comey in conversations in recent weeks.

    On Twitter, Stone signaled praise for the move by posting an image of Trump from The Apprentice saying, "You're fired.""

      "It was Rosenstein who had to say the decision was all about Comey’s mishandling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation and didn’t have anything to do with the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties with Russia."
      "Monday, Trump himself had tweeted, “The Russia-Trump collusion story is a total hoax, when will this taxpayer funded charade end?”Michael Vatis, who served in the office of the deputy attorney general from 1994 to 1998 and is now a partner at Steptoe & Johnson, pointed out on Tuesday night that there was a “very weird but very strong parallel” between Rosenstein and the man he just urged the attorney general and the president to terminate."In his confirmation hearing, Rosenstein said, “I believe it's critical for the American people to have confidence in the integrity of our investigations.” The deputy attorney general should be smart enough to recognize that it’s now his own integrity that’s in danger."

    Claude Taylor has been saying this for weeks now and CNN just picked it up. Funny how yesterday someone, probably a Russian troll, posted that Taylor and Louise Mensch were nutty conspiracy theorists and always wrong. Think again. So far, their Twitter feeds have been correct. Keith Olbermann has even acknowledged them. I sure trust Olbermann. I only hope that Trump and his cronies get thrown out of office before Dump declares martial law. They are totally corrupt, much worse than Nixon.

    Well, we know for sure that Trump did not fire Comey because of his concern for Hillary Clinton. (Who did he think he'd fool with that one?) The Senate hearing is just getting to close to the Oval Office especially with Sally Yates' testimony. Donald must be apoplectic with the latest news about a grand jury's subpoenas.

    "Kissinger talks about Nixon being loaded and calling him sounding semi-hysterical and saying essentially, “They are out to kill the president and I may physically die.” You have Brezhnev in Washington saying they should pull back, because the president is going off the deep end and we don’t want to start a war. Even real Nixon defenders like his daughter Julie, and Billy Graham, concede Nixon was drinking more.

    He said: "My father thought it would be good for discipline reasons. I was just somebody who was rebellious."

    FB>"Future generations may mark today as one of the truly dark days in American history, a history that may soon take an even more ominous turn.
    President Trump's sudden firing of FBI Director James Comey is a matter that should deeply concern every American, regardless of party, partisan politics or ideological leanings.
    The independence of our law enforcement is at the bedrock of our democracy. That independance, already grievously shaken under the brief tenure of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, is now shattered by uncertainty.
    The firing of an FBI Director is always a very serious matter in normal times. But these times aren't normal. Far from it. The Bureau is engaged in one of the most important and perilous investigations of this or any other presidency—the investigation of connections between the Trump election campaign and the Russian government.
    The questions mount and the shadow grows darker. What were those connections? What did Mr. Trump know about them and when did he know it? How can the President explain the serious allegations against his former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn? And what is President Trump hiding in this regard? It’s imperative that the nation—We The People—get answers to those questions. It will take time, but the process must start now.
    A politicized FBI is the last thing we need as we struggle through the maze of lies, concealment and ever-deepening mysteries. The last time a President fired prosecutors who were investigating him was Richard Nixon during the widespread criminal conspiracy known for short as “Watergate.” We all know how that turned out. In real ways, this potential scandal and coverup are much graver. We are talking about the very security of the United States and the sanctity of our republic.
    Thomas Paine famously wrote in 1776: "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. "
    I see this as having the potential for a similar reflection point in our American story. If there is a cover up, if our nation is at the risk that has certainly been more than suggested, it is incumbent upon everyone who claims to love this nation to demand answers.
    We need a special prosecutor. We need an independent investigation. There is, obviously, much we don’t know about what has just happened, why it happened and why now. Just as obviously there is much more, so much more that we need know. We need to damn the lies and expose the truth."

      If we only knew what really goes on behind the scene. We only see the tip of the iceberg and it's bad enough. My fervent hope is that the whole truth will come out in the end and that all those who participated in the collusion with the Russians will be adequately prosecuted and not just allowed to resign. The countdown has just started with the very public and botched firing of James Comey.
