Donald Trump's presidency can't be saved - so what happens next? President's team scouring FBI investigator Robert Mueller's records in search of conflicts of interest and readying pardons as desperation over Russia controversy grows In light of news reports that President Donald Trump's team is scouring the record for conflicts of interest on special counsel Robert Mueller's team (the essence of chutzpah) and contemplating pardons (of aides and/or himself), it is worth considering how this may all play out. We offer several scenarios: 1. Trump orders Attorney General Jeff Sessions to fire Mueller. Sessions quits, as does Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand. Eventually someone agrees to fire Mueller. Republicans either will not pursue impeachment or are obliged to begin impeachment hearings but refuse to vote out articles of impeachment. In 2018, Democrats sweep to victory in the House and gain a seat or two in the Senate. Trump cannot be removed (two-thirds of the Senate is required for removal), but his presidency is in tatters. Some aides or ex-aides face criminal prosecution. LESSON: Republicans' failure to stand up to Trump early dooms his presidency and crashes the GOP. 2. Trump orders Attorney General Jeff Sessions to fire Mueller. Sessions quits, as does Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and Associate Attorney General Brand. Eventually someone agrees to fire Mueller. Republicans, together with Democrats, pass by a veto-proof majority an independent prosecutor statute. Before impeachment proceedings can finish, Democrats sweep to victory in 2018 in the House and gain a seat or two in the Senate. Trump cannot be removed, but his presidency is in tatters. Some aides or ex-aides face criminal prosecution. LESSON: Fire Mueller, and Congress will hire him back. 3. Republicans join Democrats in warning Trump not to fire Mueller. Mueller remains and keeps digging. Mueller subpoenas damaging documents; Trump refuses to comply. A court orders him to comply. He doesn't. We have a full-blown constitutional crisis. LESSON: Congress cannot delegate all responsibility to Mueller. It must conduct a parallel investigation and, if need be, commence impeachment proceedings. 4. Republicans join Democrats in warning Trump not to fire Mueller. Mueller remains and keeps digging. Mueller subpoenas damaging documents; Trump refuses to comply. A court orders him to comply. He declares this a witch hunt, an attack on his family (or whatever). Then he resigns, claiming he has already made America great. He tells the country that Vice President Mike Pence will carry on in his place. LESSON: Congress must protect Mueller and preserve the possibility that Trump may be forced to resign. 5. Republicans join Democrats in warning Trump not to fire Mueller. Mueller subpoenas damaging documents. Trump complies. The evidence of collusion and/or obstruction is overwhelming. Mueller recommends prosecution or impeachment. The GOP turns on Trump, who is impeached and removed (with the GOP by that time possibly in the minority in one or both houses). LESSON: Congress must protect Mueller and pay the price for failure to oppose Trump's nomination and election. Is there a sixth scenario in which Mueller exonerates Trump? That's the least likely outcome after Trump has fired former FBI director James Comey and threatened the special counsel. Why would he do those things unless there was something really, really bad to find? And if there is something bad, Mueller will find it. You can understand why Trump sounds frantic. In no scenario does Trump's presidency recover.

interesting announcement from Greg Clark today on enery storage and efficiency. It would seem to be right up the street of someone like CWR.. http://www.bbc.com/news/business-40699986 this one as well, would seem to tie in with CWR's work with Nissan and Honda hxxps://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/industry/uk-become-world-leader-battery-technology-electric-vehicles

I was in Guildford yesterday afternoon and the amount of new large 4x4's on the roads in quite remarkable it reminded me a little of a trip to Dublin just before the last property crash.

would agree with that, going back to CWR, from my limited research at the weekend, their cell seems to be compatible with both conventional and sustainable fuels. It then stores and generates power from its cell more efficiently. Still reading up on it, but i'll be keeping a watching brief. One decent contract and it could melt up.

Mr R... yes, timing is everything with non profit makers. The potential has always been there but imo there is still no sign of any profits which always puts me off. I think like ALK its real potential is in a buyout for those who are patient.

henry, good to have your view. I noticed their revenues have increased 4 fold this year and have some pretty interesting tie ups with Honda and Nissan as well. Lansdowne and Hendersons both invested in it.

I've looked at CWR on many occasions over the years. The British gas tie in is old news. - don't waste your time or money unless you are prepared for further dilution. Shares in issue in 2004 41m today over 1000m.

Interesting post bluster, on the storage point, have you come across Ceres Power - CWR. Very interesting fuel cell technology and they are working with British Gas already.

One way to smooth demand and supply would be to have EVs discharging to the grid at times of high demand and charging from the grid at times of low demand. An effective spot-pricing market would be necessary.

htTp://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-40699986 Consumers in the UK could save billions of pounds thanks to major changes in the way electricity is made, used and stored, the government has said. New rules will make it easier for people to generate their own power with solar panels, store it in batteries and sell it to the National Grid. If they work, consumers will save £17bn to £40bn by 2050, according to the government and energy regulator Ofgem. The rules are due to come into effect over the next year. They will reduce costs for someone who allows their washing machine to be turned on by the internet to maximise use of cheap solar power on a sunny afternoon. And they will even support people who agree to have their freezers switched off for a few minutes to smooth demand at peak times. They'll also benefit a business that allows its air-conditioning to be turned down briefly to help balance a spell of peak energy demand on the National Grid. Thanks to improvements in digital technology, battery storage and renewables, these innovations in flexibility are already under way with millions of people across the UK generating and storing electricity. The new rules have been designed to cash in on this. The tiny energy savings of millions of people and firms will be pulled together into packages by traders, who will offer substantial chunks of energy saving to the National Grid at the click of a computer. So instead of predicting peak demand then building power stations to meet it, energy managers will be able to trade in Negawatts - negative electricity.

bamboo...I agree that Graduated Contribution System would be a much better name than Student Loan. Its not a loan in the way that most of us would define the word. Very well constructed article...

Regarding cyborg technology, it is being considered. Assuming it's possible, avoiding it would presumably involve the ballot box. htTps://www.theguardian.com/technology/2017/feb/15/elon-musk-cyborgs-robots-artificial-intelligence-is-he-right

That is partly true. We are selfish basically and animals but we work better as a community. Again, we are intelligent enough to know that as a species,we are better served to restrain those individuals who demand a bigger slice of the pie and by subterfuge seek to mislead. That is what rising above our roots is about. I am optimistic this is just a stage and things will get better again. I think those were great posts though,thanks spittingb and hosede these things need to be brought out in the open or people will go on believing that these things are done 'for the greater good'.

Hazl "I always hoped we would become more civilised as time went by but it appears not" Because it's LEARNED behaviour - it's not natural: Homo Sapiens is not a social animal - he's greedy and selfish - that's how he got to the "top of the tree". I'm afraid money leads to power and power to control, so the rich will always be rich and the poor poor - just like lions (while they still exist) will eat antelopes and dogs will chase cats. We've quoted the old song here before "It's the same the whole world over....

'The papers Nancy MacLean discovered show that Buchanan saw stealth as crucial. He told his collaborators that “conspiratorial secrecy is at all times essential”. Instead of revealing their ultimate destination, they would proceed by incremental steps. For example, in seeking to destroy the social security system, they would claim to be saving it, arguing that it would fail without a series of radical “reforms”;. (The same argument is used by those attacking the NHS). Gradually they would build a “counter-intelligentsia”, allied to a “vast network of political power” that would become the new establishment.' Sorry have to quote again from hosede's link. I have read about this sort of thing from sources elsewhere but it is put well above. I begun to question any charity that the big corporations in particular started for just those reasons. That is why rebellion was needed.
