    Flake, Coons push for vote on Mueller protection bill


    Sens. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Chris Coons (D-Del.) plan to ask for a floor vote on legislation to shield Special Counsel Robert Mueller from a firing when the upper chamber returns to session next week, Flake said on Thursday.

    The bipartisan Mueller protection legislation cleared the Senate Judiciary Committee in April but has seen no floor action amid public skepticism from Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) that Mueller’s Russia investigation faces any legitimate threat from President Donald Trump.

  2. Well now if Mitch says honest Injun Trump won't interfere..

    Wasn't Trump calling him a cu&t a couple of weeks back? Must be true.

    OT) Someone told me "Peaky Blinders" is a good series. About Irish gangs after WW1. Gypsies. Said its a great show. You seen it? I know you like your Irish ancestors. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2442560/

    Edit:
    Reading those reviews... it is well liked for sure.

  5. It is a good show, based on a real family though dramatised a lot of course. I have not seen the last season yet. I have literally just started watching the first episode of Vikings tonight, catching up with the other ancestors.

    That movie you liked I only got through a third. It was OK but at the bottom of the pile to finish right now.

    Vikings goes full fledged feminist by 2nd or 3rd season.

  7. My girlfriend wants to see the sexy men, I have a feeling it goes a bit like Outlander which is basically girl porn. Weird though as I know at least four of the actors in Vikings, I think half the cast are Irish.

    I thought they were mostly Canadian. Tried watching outlander's first episode, key word, tried
     

  9. Canadians don't have the look anymore in general plus the accents, the problem is worse in the US with a lot of blending of genes plus the fatness of course. Looking at the cast list now, Irish, Scottish and Scandinavian.

    Outlander was OK, though I posted on ET through a lot of it.

    Trading is great, err I need to check on a position honey.
