(Q:) When Will We See The Last Nail in Trump's Coffin — (A:) Hopefully Soon

He might be headed down the trail to a final resolution 
(Or maybe not)

Who will have the honor of putting in the “last nail”
(Or maybe not)

Now add this to the mix vis-à-vis Robert Mueller being appointed as Special Prosecutor, updated from Reuters via
Trump has said that Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein's hiring of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to lead the investigation “hurts our country terribly,” ergo: Trump’s move to squelch that appointment within hours of Mueller's appointment on May 24, is: To have the House begin reviewing the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), which restricts newly hired government lawyers from investigating their prior law firm’s clients for one year after their hiring.
Note: An executive order signed by Trump in late January extended that one-year period to two years.
The impact: Mueller's former law firm, Wilmer-Hale, represents Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, who met with a Russian bank executive in December, and the president's former campaign manager Paul Manafort, who is a subject of a federal investigation.
Legal experts said the ethics rule can be waived by the DOJ which nominated Mueller. Mueller did not represent Kushner or Manafort directly at his former law firm.
If the department did not grant a waiver, Mueller would be barred from investigating Kushner or Manafort, and this could greatly diminish the scope of the probe, experts said. 
Plus, the DOJ is already reviewing Mueller's background as well as any potential conflicts of interest, said DOJ spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores.
Even if the DOJ grants such a waiver, the White House would consider using the ethics rule to create doubt about Mueller's ability to do his job fairly. Plus, administration legal advisers have been asked to determine if there is a basis for this at all.
All this appears to be totally new, and let’s call it for what it is: underhanded and sneaky which would allow such a strategy to occur allowing the administration to  raise the issue in press conferences and public statements to justify squelching the Mueller appointment while having it appear “all fancy and legal.”
I Note: And, who says Trump is a dummy? Ha… dummy like the proverbial fox in the hen house, um? Call it “Art of the Con.”
Stay tuned as usual … a lot more shoes to drop before this nightmare is over...!!!
