I read Mr Conway’s critique.

There is little factual there regarding the scope and supervision of Mueller’s investigation. The scope of the investigation has been deemed to be classified so it can be as far ranging as the imagination as the mind can imagine. And Mr Rosenstein hasn’t publicly discussed his supervision other than to say vaguely that he’s got everything under control. Such are the quotes Mr Conway has granted us.

If you wanted to learn what is being investigated or how it’s being investigated, other than some hand waiving and to “just trust them”, Mr Conway cannot enlighten you.

As a lawyer in the Federalist Society, Conway is of course very much aware of the proper way to screw the American people.
.
FIRST you change the law or engineer loopholes to make the desired actions legal (limitless, anonymous political donations, gerrymandering, appointment of incompetent but loyal judges, etc.). THEN you screw the American people with goodies for the rich and crumbs (and crumbling infrastructure) for the masses.
.
It's got to be done right for it to have a permanent impact, inforced by the law and backed up by the strong arm of the state.

It can be a well-thought family strategy how to survive the times of Mr Trump. Once these times are over family may return to lost family peace.

Clearly Kellyanne will shortly need to choose between her slavish loyalty to an incompetent infantile halfwit and her marriage.

Her husband will definitely be far better off without her.

Effective powerful love spell to get your Ex lover back urgently after breakup/divorce!.
Hi everyone,
I'm so excited. My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup, I’m extremely happy that will are living together again.
My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.
I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 17 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again...
All thanks to Dr Ahmed if you have any problem contact Dr Ahmed now and I guarantee you that he will help you. Here’s his contact. Email him at: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com Call/what’s-app him: +2348160153829

George Conway is a legal eunuch who has been emasculated by his brilliant and successful wife's performance in the Trump administration. Anything that he says is irrelevant.
.
Moreover, the Mueller investigation is based on a lie perpetrated by the criminal Hillary Clinton and her band of goons when she paid for the Steele dossier. The only Russian "collusion" was with the Democrats who were desperately trying to undermine Trump. This entire investigation may be an attempt to distract everyone from an investigation into the Uranium One debacle where Mueller was as corrupt as Hillary. The evidence for this is in a statement by Hillary when she said, "If Trump gets elected, we will all hang."
.
Well, I am patiently waiting for her prophesy to come true. The first shoe will drop on June 14th when the IG report is made public...I can almost hear the faint hammering as the gallows take their shape...

Your entire comment is, as Kellyanne herself would say, one huge "Alternative Fact". Literally every single sentence is laughably false, and the only thing you were able to get correct is the date of the release of the IG report. In other words, Aja, your record for outrageous BS is still going strong.
