The Golden Shower

Something interesting—this is number 18.

I am having fun that just will not go away. Last November we all elected what we knew to be a Schlemiel-in-Chief and a Snowflake-in-Chief, but what we failed to realize was that along with these plums of life we were also receiving a shower of pure gold. The story is a week stale (been busy), but The New York Times had it last week:

WASHINGTON — President Trump sought to turn attention away from the Russia investigation on Monday, saying that “the real story” was what he called a “crooked scheme against us” by President Barack Obama’s team to mine American intelligence reports for information about him during last year’s presidential campaign.

The president’s broadside against his predecessor coincided with a string of reports in conservative news media outlets that Susan E. Rice, Mr. Obama’s national security adviser, requested the identities of Americans who were cited in intelligence reports about surveillance of foreign officials, and who were connected with Mr. Trump’s campaign or transition.

The Russia investigation may or may not have anything to do with a dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, describing humorous accounts of Donald Trump in a Moscow hotel:

However, there were other aspects to TRUMP’s engagement with the Russian authorities. One which had borne fruit for them was to exploit TRUMP’s person  obsessions and sexual perversion in order to  obtain suitable ‘kompromat’ (compromising material) on him. According to Source D, where s/he had been present, TRUMP’s perverted) conduct in Moscow included hiring the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton Hotel, where he knew president and Mrs OBAMA (whom he hated) had stayed on  one of their official trips to Russia, and defiling the bed where they had slept by employing a number of prostitutes to perform a ‘golden showers’ (urination) show in front of him. the hotel was known to be under FSB control  with microphones and concealed cameras in all the main rooms to record anything they wanted to.

That would be embarrassing even to me, and I’m not easily embarrassed (Trump is?). President Trump’s efforts to deflect are falling considerably short, as neither Democrats nor Republicans are buying his excuses:

CNN Exclusive: Classified docs contradict Nunes surveillance claims, GOP and Dem sources say

Updated 7:25 AM ET, Wed April 12, 2017

Washington (CNN) — After a review of the same intelligence reports brought to light by House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, both Republican and Democratic lawmakers and aides have so far found no evidence that Obama administration officials did anything unusual or illegal, multiple sources in both parties tell CNN.

Their private assessment contradicts President Donald Trump’s allegations that former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice broke the law by requesting the “unmasking” of US individuals’ identities. Trump had claimed the matter was a “massive story.”

Forget Pink Floyd. This rain is golden.
