    If he pulls either of those moves it will be rather interesting. In days past he would be in serious trouble (even with his own party controlling Congress) because they wouldnt want to deal with the fallout. (which will be bad) These days though if the GOP turns on him the Nazi Troll Army will riot. Rock meet hard place...

    Now if the GOP had any integrity and brains they would let the Trolls split off and regain some of their sanity but since we know they will support clowns like Roy Moore as long as they vote for Tax Reform (man Jon Oliver roasted them for that) we know they wont even pretend to care.

He's a complete charlatan. Manafort on the other hand.....look at the dudes he's running with over in Russia. That's the real deal.

    Papadopoulous may be more likely to flip, and if he's already pleading guilty, maybe that means he is cooperating.

    Hasn't been thrown under the bus at all. In fact, he's noted the charges had nothing to do with the campaign, but rather blackmail bargains.

    He can't directly fire Mueller, at least not legally. But he can fire Assistant AGs until he gets one that will fire Mueller for him. See, also, the Saturday Night Massacre.

    Manafort's stooge has been in the White House all along (Rick Gates). So, sorry, no skating on this one.

    Trump, ala Nixon, will fire Mueller if he gets too close. Like if Jared Kushner gets indicted which is probably coming. Chump won't wait for his own indictment that's for sure. If he does so and Dems regain House (which they probably would in that scenario) they will pretty quickly impeach him, while Trump then pressures the wusses in the GOP Senate caucus to save his fat arse. I'm guessing they would as in a closely divided Senate I find it hard to believe you'd find 15-20 Goopers to vote to convict even if there's videotape of Trump giving Putin cash payments to disrupt the election.

    Again, what are the charges against Gates? The same as Manafort. Nice try.

    Given the timing of the conspiracy charge- being inclusive of Manafort being part of the campaign AND of Gates being part of the current administration, I'm not sure how one can conclude that this has nothing to do with the campaign.

    The Laundering money charge does go into 2016, so that can also be part of the campaign. And the direction of where that money was used....

    Finally, the FARA statements were post winning the election- so how that is outside of the campaign takes some dreaming. Especially since a lot of that is about meetings DURING the campaign, meetings which we all now know did happen, with the desire to get dirt on Secretary Clinton, and the source being Russian Agents. Thank you Papadopoulos for clarifying that.

    One has to be really creative to pretend that this has nothing to do with the campaign.

    Take a look at the actual indictment itself. The campaign is mentioned nowhere.

    I know there was a lot said but I just want to address a few points. First and foremost, I am 100% in agreement that opiates are over prescribed. Les has already correctly identified the main issue that caused this, which was the push to make pain a "vital sign." (which is wrong...vital signs need to be objective) The main problem now is that hospital reimbursement is tied to patient satisfaction, which is tied to pain scores. Imagine covering 50-60 patients, getting calls on half of them overnight that they are in 10/10 pain and tylenol does not work. This happens all the time on nearly every hospital service. This happens because patients have an expectation that they should be pain free (which is wrong), because nurses get in trouble with the admins if their pain scores are terrible (also wrong), and that doctors are too busy to go and talk to each patient to address their pain in a real way, it is easier and quicker to write an order inpatient to get them to shut up (also very wrong). Imagine being paged every 10 minutes for 28 hours straight about these issues and then you can get close to the mindset of a hospitalist on call.

    It is a stawman to say that they are prescribed for almost everything. There are problem people and specialties and they should be addressed but I can tell you I have not written a single prescription for opiates in my outpatient clinic. It is not everyone. I am also of the new generation who was trained after the "pain is a vital sign bull****" so I have a much different outlook. It is somewhat of a punt, but if my patient's have chronic pain that I cannot control with meds that have strong evidence for (opiates do not have great evidence for chronic pain) then I send them to pain management. Most outpatient opiate scripts I write are hospital discharges to hospice.

They dont have enough room at the morgues for the bodies over the weekend and that isnt hyperbole...
    Speaking as someone who prescribes in Ohio...that is hyperbole. Ohio has one of the better programs right now to address this (from strictly a medical standpoint). We have the OAARS system where I can look up any opiate prescription(or benzos) on any patient to audit them. We are required to do this for any script over 7 days. If we live in a county next to another state we have to check that state as well. We have to document this audit in the medical record and if we don't, we can lose our state license. The restrictions are getting stricter as well (which I agree with). I now have to give my DEA number and audit for gabapentin scripts (non-opiate) because people are now ****ing abusing this for some **** reason.

    I agree with increased regulation and agree with most of you all in principle, don't mistake me. But the real driver of this is using pain as a vital sign and the government reimbursing hospitals based on patient satisfaction.
