Why are people not adding 2 and 2? BARR FORCED MUELLER not to indict Trump, and that's why he lied about this. He said, himself that he had multiple disagreements with Mueller on policy. THIS IS WHY. Mueller probably wanted to indict Trump, but Barr shut him down.

BREAKING: Congressman Jerry Nadler Opened the door to Trump impeachment

HE SAID THIS

"The Special Counsel made clear that he did not exonerate the President. The responsibility now falls to Congress to hold the President accountable for his actions."

So... I’m not sure what the hell Barr read, but the report he released had a lot of collusion and a lot of obstruction in it.

Time for Congress to do their jobs.

I’ve had screen down & just reading but this I found unbelievable even though FAR from the most important thing. Sarah Sanders told special counsel that her slander of Comey (rank & file FBI had lost confidence) was a “slip of the tongue” and was not founded on anything. Liars.

New from me: After working to help Trump win, Putin wanted to cash in. So he encouraged his oligarchs to make contact with Trump’s transition team about sanctions, and it worked—One document drafted by Dmitriev made its way to Rex Tillerson via Kushner.

A complete lie. See the whole section on the 2015-16 Trump Moscow project.

Why did he lie?


David Corn Verified account @DavidCornDC 4 hours ago

At that time, Trump also said, “We could make deals in Russia very easily if we wanted to, I just don’t want to because I think that would be a conflict.”

So he was secretly confessing in public to having engaged in a conflict?

Trump supporters, how do you defend this?

"Barr has so thoroughly betrayed the values of his office that voting to impeach and remove him is almost obvious." #BarrCoverUp

http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/04/impeach-attorney-general-william-barr.html

House Democrats are going to face a difficult decision about launching an impeachment inquiry into President Trump. Balanced against the president’s impressive array of misconduct is the fact that several more criminal investigations that may add to the indictment are already underway, and that impeaching the president might jeopardize the reelection of red-state Democratic members. But in the meantime, Attorney General William Barr presents them with a much easier decision. Barr has so thoroughly betrayed the values of his office that voting to impeach and remove him is almost obvious.

There is no department in government in which mere norms, not laws, are all that stand between democracy as we know it and a banana republic. Barr has revealed his complete unfitness for this awesome task. Nearly two more years of this Trumpian henchman wielding power over federal law enforcement is more weight than the rickety Constitution can bear.

A lot of elected Democrats seem concerned with how an impeachment inquiry would play politically.

I don't get it. Isn't the point of getting elected to do the right thing once you get there?

Who cares how it plays politically? This is much bigger than that.


Judd Legum Verified account @JuddLegum 9 hours ago

Why a detailed examination of Trump's obstruction of justice, which Mueller just outlined in detail, would be damaging to Democrats politically is not something I understand either. But I also don't care. Just do the right thing.

Judd Legum Verified account @JuddLegum 9 hours ago

Something I think that is politically damaging is when someone asks whether you believe the president committed an impeachable offense and your answer is it depends on how it might play in the next election.

I still want to know what I wanted to know in 2016: Putin's Russia obviously has some kind of hold upon the man in the presidency. What is the origin and nature of that hold? It's not a legal question, it's a national-security question.

There is a fairly common narrative going around that the Mueller Report changes nothing. Both "sides" feel just as they did before it came out. This is nonsense and essentially a pro-Trump narrative because it suggests there are two reasonable sides to this discussion.

David Rothkopf Verified account @djrothkopf 14 hours ago

Instead, what happened today is that the Mueller Report, even in its redacted version added many layers of fact and confirmation to what many have known to be true for some time: Russia sought to help Trump win. Trump sought Russian help.

Mueller Report: The Next Step In The Inevitable Legal Fight | Time - &#128563; Robert Mueller Told Congress They Can Prosecute the President. Now It Gets Ugly

http://time.com/5572397/mueller-report-congress-referral/

More than two years after Robert Mueller began investigating whether President Donald Trump attempted to obstruct justice, the Special Counsel offered the American people a sobering conclusion in his final report, released Thursday: the most powerful law enforcement officials in the country are not in a position to prosecute their boss, the President.

But Congress, Mueller said, is.

Despite witness testimony that Trump tried to get underlings to derail Mueller’s probe and lie under oath, Mueller and his team determined not to make a “traditional prosecutorial judgment” about whether the president violated the law that criminalizes obstruction of justice. That doesn’t mean Trump can do whatever he wants, though. “Congress may apply the obstruction laws to the President’s corrupt exercise of the powers of office,” Mueller wrote. That conclusion, he said, “accords with our constitutional system of checks and balances and the principle that no person is above the law.”


That Solomonic decision left some unsatisfied. For Trump opponents hoping for his ouster, Mueller’s apparent referral to Congress seems like a punt. For Trump’s backers, it was a source of outrage. But at a moment when Americans see threats of government overreach on the left and the right, Mueller’s restraint has its merits. Rather than reaching to bring down a democratically elected President, Mueller has deferred directly to voters’ popularly elected officials on the Hill.

Which is where things are likely to get ugly.

Democrats have heard Mueller’s message loud and clear. “Mueller makes a very powerful argument that the President can be found guilty of obstructing justice and he essentially puts the ball in the court of Congress,” Rep. Jamie Raskin, who sits on the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees, told TIME. The six Democratic committee chairs of the committees with the broadest oversight jurisdiction are also preparing for battle. “We are profoundly troubled by the astonishing efforts by President Trump identified in the report to obstruct the investigation, including his attempts to remove the Special Counsel and encourage witnesses to lie and to destroy or conceal evidence,” they wrote in a statement Thursday evening. “It must fall to Congress to assess the President’s improper, corrupt and immoral conduct in an effort to obstruct the investigation.”

Republicans for their part, are preparing to counter a new round of Democratic investigations with attacks of their own. Trump supporters are claiming Mueller’s refusal to prosecute Trump is vindication. “It seems nothing will stop Democrats in Congress from trying to get the President at all costs,” tweeted GOP Congressman Jim Jordan. Some Republicans say they want to launch their own probes into the origins of Mueller’s investigation. “We must take a hard look at how we got here and at the relevant issues that the Mueller report did not address,” wrote Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, “Were our premiere law enforcement and intelligence agencies co-opted by candidate Trump’s political opponents in an attempt to take him down? Did political bias or unverified claims taint decisions by senior agency officials?”
