Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

If you take time off like that, you fall behind our president's tweets. For example, Fox News showed third-rate congressman John Ratcliffe taking aggressive pot shots at Mueller, so the president abruptly fired (via Twitter) the current Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats, who from all reports was a truth-teller and already in trouble for being so, and said (via Twitter) that he would nominate Ratcliffe in his place.

But subsequently some minor shortcomings in Ratcliffe's resume were exposed by the fake news media, to the point where even the GOP couldn't stomach his appointment, and today Trump yanked (via Twitter) his nomination, after which Ratcliffe withdrew his candidacy.

At this point, according to law, the second in command under Coats should be in line to run things, but she is unfortunately a female and another one of those troublemaking truth-tellers, so all bets are off.

Luckily, our government is by Only The Best, so a solution will be forthcoming quite soon. Check Fox News for next nominee.
