So, speaking to the "Values Voter Summit" today, Trump threatened to sue Schiff and Pelosi. Because, they don't make him look good. Trump's attorney Jay Sekulow told CNN the President's legal team is "looking at all options" after Trump floated the possibility of a lawsuit against Schiff and Pelosi. 
That's the polite version of, well you don't have a snowball's chance in hell to win this suit, but it may still play well in Podunk.

So, the Kurds have been betrayed by the Yanks and the British.

As far as Yanks go, they were really betrayed by a unilateral decision by Trump, against advice and without consent. This is what happens when all the grown-ups have been thrown out of the room.

I think we need to go biblical or perhaps borrow from Hieronymus Bosch to come up with the proper treatment of Trump. Sadly, the best we can do is removal from office by impeachment followed by a criminal trial for treason and death by hanging. Which is a pretty weak remedy...

We are going to enter difficult terrain. At what point do you decide that it is unreasonable and/or inhuman to execute an imbecile? Todays meeting in the WH showed Trump at his worst, or close thereto.

Isn't it ironic that can take as little as a bacon sandwich to ruin a decent person's career, but in the case of Trump foreign interfering, sexual harassment and corruption are not enough.

I met a bacon sandwich-eating politician, possibly the same one, for all of five seconds. It was more than enough time to tell that he was missing that part of the brain used for interacting with humans. Maybe that part is next to the part that eats bacon sandwiches?

I am sure he was decent. Just really weird.
