Ryan Resignation/ GOP CYA?

Just had this thought:

Mueller's indictments and - for added fun and excitement - unleased just prior to mid-terms, end up bringing down Trump, Pence...even Ryan (knowledge, complicity, i.e.)

Who becomes President?

Nancy Pelosi...until 2020

House flips to Dems, too
Senate's a toss-up

What's the GOPs gamble? Take Ryan out & prey... I mean pray...the House holds GOP control.

Result: GOP holds the Presidency (as Speaker would then go to GOP's next pick for Speaker furthest from Russian ordeal, the House, and possibly the Senate.

Good gamble? How's everybody doing tonight?

Bosses at world's most ambitious clean coal plant kept problems secret for years

Where are you, Rob Joyce?

Can he be interviewed? Can he give the American public an update on foreign hacking, our upcoming election, and what is being done?

Where are you, Rob Joyce?

HA!

Always the master wordsmith!!

Hello riverbendviewgal

...and thank you for your welcome!

Absolutely, we can chat anytime about those things...did you have a choice/option when you became a Canadian citizen to keep your U.S. citizenship?

Please allow me to introduce myself, DU members

...hope I haven't infringed on any Rolling Stones copyrights!

Hello, DU, my name is Greg. I currently reside in Atlanta, GA, with my wife of 13 years, Ivana. We met while I was living and working in Prague, Czech Republic. We have no children. We moved to Atlanta from Palm Beach, FL two years ago, where we had lived since moving from Prague in 2005. We moved to Atlanta to be closer to my mom, who is getting up in years and ill of health, not to mention a job offer managing a medium-sized real estate law firm that was too good to refuse. My father passed away in 2010. My wife works from home for a large health insurance carrier.

My family is a family of immigrants- my father's family moved from Denmark to a farm in Iowa during the Great Depression, my Dutch/German mother immigrated at age 19 from Germany to Milwaukee. I am extremely proud of my wife, who gained her U.S. citizenship in 2007, a Masters degree from Florida State in 2010, and probably speaks a higher level of English than I do, even though her native tongue is Czech. We both have dual citizenship (U.S.-German and U.S.-Czech) and plan on retiring to Europe some time after my mom passes.

My entire family has always voted for Democrats and, because we compare and contrast our lives in the U.S. to that in Europe, have great reason to. Our greatest concerns are health care, gun control, women's rights, education/student loans, environment, job contracts/ security...all of which are not perfect in Europe but much better handled and addressed than here stateside, in our opinion. I want to point out that I am not here to lambast America, it is I that am damned for living and working on 2 continents and, therefore, more sensitive to differences.

So, enough said for now. Thank you for allowing me to have a say here and I look forward to many many discussions to be had!
