Emmy award winner and White Wizard Kate McKinnon, who apparently can conjure anyone she wants anytime she wants, last night took to SNL’s Weekend update as Robert Mueller, and though Kate/Mueller plays it coy at first, prospects for his investigation are so good they soon have her/him pounding the Weekend Update desk in affirmation…
“The “Weekend Update” sketch featured McKinnon as the long-faced, toothpick-chewing Mueller who’s so excited about getting the goods on the White House crew. But it’s all the “special counsel” can do not to spill the beans about his probe into Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election.
Asked by Colin Jost how the investigation is going, McKinnon battles with Mueller self not to say anything too revealing, hemming, hawing and smiling wickedly, until she says: “Yeah, we good.
“I mean,” she adds, squirming. “You just wait … you’ll see. Situation’s under control. You gotta remember I have actual footage … I want to tell you so bad, I can’t. … It’s gonna be fun … oh man … Don Jr. he wrote in his Venmo description, ‘Russia …’”
“Colin, you gotta understand: The guy didn’t leave me a trail of bread crumbs. He left me full loaves … seven-grain loaves straight from Panera Bread. I’m having a blast.”
Watching you channel Bobby Threesticks Kate, we are having a blast, too!
On Morning Joe a couple of days ago, Professer Allan Lichtman of American University, who has predicted correctly the results of every Presidential Election since 1984 (including the 2016 debacle), might have prompted Kate’s sketch with his interview with Mika in which he predicted impeachment and conviction of the Menace…
“It’s a conspiracy,” Lichtman said. “I believe we have the tip of the iceberg of what the special counsel knows about the relationship between Trump and the Trump team and the Russians. There’s a fair chance that the reason they were covering up all of those calls from then to be national security adviser with the Russians was to cover up a possible quid pro quo, the Russians will help us and in turn we’ll ease those sanctions. Why else make those calls and why else lie about them?”
The historian said the public had already seen strong evidence of obstruction, but he said there’s plenty of reason to predict charges on a “host of crimes” — some of them deadly serious — related to a Russian conspiracy.
“I wouldn’t keep saying collusion isn’t a crime,” Lichtman said. “Of course not, but taking things of value from foreign nationals is a crime, aiding and abetting illegal computer hacking is a crime, negotiating as a private citizen with a hostile foreign power with which there is disputes is a crime. If this is serious enough, and I’ve taken a lot of flak for that, I think there even could be charges of treason. After all, Russia was waging war against us — not a war with bombs and bullets, but a cyber attack, an online attack designed to destroy democracy.”
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), who has compared Trump to Stalin, told MSNBC that he still wouldn’t vote to impeach the president — but Lichtman said the public would eventually see evidence that would force Republicans to act.
“Talk about premature — how could he know whether or not he would vote to impeach when a case hasn’t been made yet?” Lichtman said. “He hasn’t been impeached and there hasn’t been a trial in the Senate. I think Mueller — and this is my prediction — is going to come up with findings that are going to shock the country, not only involve conspiracy with Russia but could involve serious financial crimes.”
From your mouth to the Spaghetti Monster’s noodly ears, Professor!!!!
