The Mueller-Manafort Connection

Before we jump up and down for joy at the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel investigating possible Russian/Trump campaign ties: 

"Another potential legal complication could arise from the law firm where Mueller worked until his appointment as special counsel. That firm, WilmerHale, has represented Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who has been under investigation relating to his work and payments for advising Ukrainian government officials." (Washington Post)

The firing of James Comey is just the beginning.

When Nixon carried out what came to be called the Saturday Night Massacre, both chambers of Congress had Democratic majorities. Thus, Nixon's political demise was pretty much guaranteed.  Today, both chambers are controlled by Republicans.  So unless Republicans in the Senate and/or House agree to an independent investigation of Trump and his ties to Russia, this is only the beginning.  Eventually, we will all get Trump'd.

Can Trump say something bad about anti-Semitism?

This is a serious question. On International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the White House issued a statement that made no mention of the Jewish people or anti-Semitism. And now, when asked directly about the increase in anti-Semitic incidents in the U.S., Trump avoided using the phrase "anti-Semitism." Is it just coincidence? Or is there a reason why he can't mention anti-Semitism?

UPDATE:  So far, no, Trump cannot say anything bad about anti-Semitism.
