in a concise, one-paragraph conclusion, Mueller notes that “if we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state.” There is no such stating.

The long-awaited report by special counsel Robert Mueller confirms what we already knew: that Donald Trump and his campaign privately interacted with Russia while Putin’s regime was preparing—and then carrying out—an attack on the 2016 US presidential election; that Russia’s goal (as early as the start of 2016) was to help Trump become president; that Trump and his campaign had good reason to believe Putin’s regime was behind the ongoing assault (but kept insisting Moscow was doing nothing); and that Trump and folks in his orbit have lied about much of this.

Lies, lies, and more lies. They lace this report.

 

The basics of the Trump-Russia scandal were well established long before Mueller concluded his investigation, because so much of it had taken place in public view—Trump repeatedly echoing Russia’s false claims of innocence, for example.

 

Other elements had been exposed by media reports—including Trump’s pursuit of a secret Moscow project while he was running for president, as well as the June 2016 Trump tower meeting, during which top Trump aides gathered to participate in what they were told was a Moscow plot to help Trump get elected. Numerous lies had already been exposed, including Trump saying he had nothing to do with Russia, and he and Donald Trump Jr. claiming that the Trump tower meeting had only been about adoption policy.

 

Yet the Mueller report—while, as expected, not revealing any further criminality beyond the indictments already brought during the investigation—reinforces the case that much wrongdoing occurred on the part of Trump and his crew.

Then why didn't Mueller state it?   

 

LMAO...thread fail!

Now it is up to others to step up and demonstrate some backbone = bring Trump under the investigation umbrella thus allowing Trump to further jeopardize himself.

"This report does not allege the President committed a crime". 

 

No collusion.

No obstruction. 

No impeachment. 

 

 

Now liberals are relegated to their standard "He's a RACIST" screams used against every Republican nominee.

Mueller could not allege, accuse, or indict a sitting president of any crime. His hands were tied by FAT BASTARD BARR. Let congress do their job to charge FAT BASTARD and THE PIG with obstruction of justice. This senate will never vote to convict, but it will be a black spot on their record, and the American people will learn at least some truths.

I can subscribe to the above position = just the facts.

Here is just one overview Mueller provides in the report:

During the 2016 campaign, the media raised questions about a possible connection between the Trump Campaign and Russia. The questions intensified after WikiLeaks released politically damaging Democratic Party emails that were reported to have been hacked by Russia. Trump responded to questions about possible connections to Russia by denying any business involvement in Russia—even though the Trump Organization had pursued a business project in Russia as late as June 2016.

 

Trump also expressed skepticism that Russia had hacked the emails at the same time as he and other Campaign advisors privately sought information [redacted] about any further WikiLeaks releases.

Lying and subterfuge—not crimes, but that’s what Mueller accuses Trump of engaging in. And given that this particular redaction probably refers to longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone, whose lying-to-Congress case is still pending, this portion suggests that Trump himself ordered Stone to be in contact with WikiLeaks, while Julian Assange’s outfit was being used by the Russians as part of their covert operation to help Trump.

 

Pause for a moment: A presidential candidate apparently directed a henchman to make contact with—perhaps collaborate with—an ongoing attack on American democracy.

 

Another page of the report that is full of redactions shows that after WikiLeaks released emails swiped from the Democratic National Committee, Trump was keen on getting information about future WikiLeaks dumps—even as, as Mueller points out, Trump and the campaign were publicly dismissing the notion Moscow was intervening in the election. Trump, at the time, called “this whole thing with Russia” a “total deflection” and said that it was “farfetched” and “ridiculous.”

THIS is UTTER HOGWASH !!

 

If they had ANYTHING to charge Donald Trump with, THEY WOULD HAVE... and it IS, THEY DID NOT.  So, that means they have NOTHING !!  AND, in America... a person is INNOCENT until PROVEN GUILTY !! 

 

In Soviet RUSSIA, THAT'S where a person was GUILTY until proven INNOCENT... it seem the Liberals think we ALREADY live in a Socialist Totalitarian Police State !! 

 

WE DO NOT... and we WILL NOT as long as we keep Liberal SOCIALISTS OUT of OFFICE !!

There was no collusion, dumbass and there was no obstruction of justice.

Robert Mueller was granted the authority to point out any criminal activity that surfaced ....... the bottom line. Obstruction of justice is a crime.

News about Trump’s latest attempt to solicit foreign interference to aid him in U.S. elections confirmed yet again he thinks he’s above the law.

if congress does nothing, he’ll be right.

A president is sitting in the Oval Office, right now, who continues to commit crimes. He continues because he knows his Department of Justice will not act — and he believes Congress won’t either.

After the Mueller report, Congress had a duty to begin impeachment. By failing to act, Congress is complicit in Trump's latest actions. It’s time for Congress to do their constitutional duty and impeach the president.

Mitch McConnell is also complicit. The Senate must vote on the bill, already passed by the House, to help states and localities protect themselves from the foreign attacks on our elections that the president has previously welcomed.

In 1974, Democrats and Republicans united in support of impeachment not out of mutual contempt for Nixon but mutual respect for the rule of law. Congress refused to be complicit in future law-breaking by Nixon or other presidents.

I said it before, and I’ll say it again: It’s time for this Congress to start impeachment proceedings.....Elizabeth Warren

 

The GOP has become mentally unstable documented by their president daily..... the party is sick!
