On Not Firing Mueller. We chronicle the Media's current obsession with Trump NOT having fired Special Counsel Robert Mueller. We are led to conclude that Democrats have long been hoping Trump would fire Mueller, and are very disappointed that it hasn't happened, and are thus presently propagandizing to make it seem as though Trump actually HAD fired Mueller. Why the wishcasting? We speculate. Perhaps a Mueller-firing would have been the only thing that could have legitimized this fraudulent, empty investigation. Perhaps the Left has even been gambling on a firing, and has long been attempting to goad Trump into making such a move -- but Trump never did take the bait. We sample related audio from CNN's Chris Cuomo and Mary Katharine Ham. Anthony Scaramucci says it's all an "irrelevant" distraction. NBC's Tom Brokaw agrees, calling it a "non-issue." Meanwhile, we share our deepening doubts about Rep. Trey Gowdy, and consider the mysterious recusal of FISA Court Judge Rudolph Contreras. Also, we relay breaking news that the House Intelligence Committee will hold a Monday vote on releasing the Nunes Memo. Time for some yodelling? Plus, our heartfelt tributes to Warren Miller -- filmmaker, skiing legend, and all-around noble personage. With Listener Calls & Music via Sturgill Simpson and Metallica. Sacred Song from Dwight Yoakam.
