Unfortunately, Black Friday came and passed and no new significant news came out of the Mueller investigation. I was really hoping that we could collectively breathe a sigh of relief as a nation knowing this national nightmare was coming to an end.
Unless the current Congress decides on a different day and time the new members of the House and Senate will be sworn in January 3, 2019 at 12:00 pm. I believe there is a good chance immediately after that Mueller will unseal indictments hence my prediction of 12:01 pm on January 3, 2019. The House of Representatives will no longer be crimson at that point. I call it the Crimson Congress because that is the color one gets when one takes GOP Red and mixes a few parts apathy, a generous helping of illegal Russian campaign contributions, and equal parts of criminal conspiracy, desire to bury the truth, and desire to cover one’s own ass.
It’s been clear to me for some time that many Republicans have had no desire to shine a light on the truth because that same light might bring forth some of their own misdeeds. So we have sat in darkness as a nation for two years because too many lawmakers refused to do their job.
At that point the Democrat that will be Majority Speaker of the House will be third in line for the presidency. I have not heard a single word leaked from the Mueller investigation about what Pence (second in line) knew or didn’t know or did or didn’t do. So that makes it harder to predict exactly what will happen as Trump is hopefully and rightfully removed from his position.
