In short, Mueller clarified two things today; Trump lied and Barr lied.

 

Mueller also clarified that his report did not exonerate Trump, and then spiked the football.

 

Trump needs to resign.

For the GOPers who cannot understand "nuance", Mueller pointed out that the reason his team did not charge Cadet Bonespurs with any CRIMES was ENTIRELY due to the fact the DOJ operates under the premise it is Unconstitutional for a President to be charged with a FEDERAL crime to be tried in a Court. The only legitimate forum for making such charges is in the CONGRESS, to wit: an Impeachment proceeding in the House and Trial by the Senate.

 

In short they did not charge the ToadPOTUS because they had no Constitutional authority to do so, NOT because there was no evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors. As Mueller pointed out, his job was to INVESTIGATE, not to litigate. The results of the INVESTIGATION include considerable evidence ToadPOTUS and others committed felony crimes that must be addressed either by Congress though Impeachment, or by the courts who can prosecute donny and his family AFTER he's out of office in Jan 2021.

 

In no way, shape or form did the Mueller Investigation EXONERATE the Toad or his family.

 

Since Mueller is resigning from DOJ, I'm wondering if the constraint he operated under for two years while investigation Russian interference - namely, that he, as an agent of the DOJ,  could not even suggest a President had committed a crime-would hold when he's no longer a agent/representative of DOJ and becomes a full-time member of America's "Ruling Class - We the People" -  with opinions he's free to express. Wonder if donny and the trumpettes wonder this as well.


Even MSNBC dropped the "Russian Collusion" thing - time to find a new tic-toc.


Time to find a new pathological liar with over ten thousand lies told to support - just as if he was telling the truth...

Mueller addressed the question of why his investigation did not charge President Trump with a crime for obstructing justice by essentially reiterating what was in his report:

 

"[U]nder long-standing department policy, a president cannot be charged with a federal crime while he is in office. That is unconstitutional. Even if the charge is kept under seal and hidden from public view, that too is prohibited."

 

  • "The Special Counsel's Office is part of the Department of Justice and, by regulation, it was bound by that Department policy. Charging the President with a crime was therefore not an option we could consider."
  • "When a subject of an investigation obstructs that investigation or lies to investigators, it strikes at the core of the government's effort to strike at the truth and hold wrong doers accountable."
  • "There were multiple, systematic efforts to interfere in our election, and that allegation deserves the attention of every American."

In view of that, don't you think the House should move to start impeachment?

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) reacted to special counsel Robert Mueller’s press conference on his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, saying that he hinting Congress should begin impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.

“Mueller is playing a game of Taboo with Congress,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter Wednesday afternoon.  “His word is ‘impeach.'”

Mueller is playing a game of Taboo with Congress.

His word is “impeach.”

Bob Mueller today: “And second, the opinion says that the Constitution requires a process other than the criminal justice system to formally accuse a sitting President of wrongdoing.”

In a follow-up tweet, the self-avowed Democratic-socialist wrote “that part,” an apparent endorsement, of Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) calling for the House Judiciary Committee to open an impeachment inquiry to considering whether an article of impeachment should be filed.

Replying to @davidcicilline

The next step is for the House Judiciary Committee to open an impeachment inquiry to formally begin consideration of whether or not articles of impeachment should be filed.

 
 
2,543 people are talking about this
 

In his first public remarks about his two-year Russia investigation, Mueller stated the inquiry has been closed and he is leaving his role and returning to civilian life. Speaking at the Justice Department, Mueller reiterated his report’s findings — that there was no evidence to indicate collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election. The special counsel emphasized that his team could not charge Trump due to longstanding Justice Department policy. Mueller also said he appreciates that Attorney General William Barr made his report “largely public” and does not question the top Justice Department official’s “good faith” regarding his decision to do so.

 

Earlier this month, Ocasio-Cortez expressed support for moving forward with impeachment, breaking with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who has opposed Congress ousting President Trump. “I trust the Speaker is taking a measured approach to ensure that we’re moving everyone forward and, you know, being a Speaker is hard, holding this party together is a difficult task, but I personally think so. I think we have to move forward,” the New York Democrat told CNN’s senior congressional correspondent Manu Raju.

 

Meanwhile, a flurry of 2020 Democrat White House hopefuls voiced their support for Congress to consider impeachment.

 

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) declared Mueller’s remarks “makes clear” that his report is an “impeachment referral” for Congress to act, adding that “They should” do so.

“This is as close to an impeachment referral as you could get under the circumstances,” South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) told reporters.

 

President Donald Trump cheered Mueller’s statement, stating that his comments do not alter his report’s findings.  “Nothing changes from the Mueller Report,” the president tweeted. “There was insufficient evidence and therefore, in our Country, a person is innocent. The case is closed! Thank you.”

Lack of mechanisms. It so surprising to me that there is not one in this country never entered the possibility that they would have a President that thinks that he is above the Law, and that his political Party would also follow this above the law President. for political reasons.?

Cannot indicte a sitting President' has anyone heard  ever something as ridiculous as this statement before?

So is a Presiden decides to kill anyone while President, we have to sit and what until he or she gets out of office?

Wow, you certainly blew i on that one.

Mechanism are what we need in this country laws that prevent bad behaviour by anyone in government.

Whether is the President of anyone in government.

And specially the President. he cannot under any circumstances be above the law.

And yet, he is. and there is nothing that anyone can do about it.


 


There is a mechanism, it's called impeachment.  You should rally your folks and demand Nancy move to impeach the President.

 

I will be watching from the edge of my chair.
