Robert Mueller's first statement about Russia probe Special Counsel Robert Mueller gave his first remarks about his team's report into the Russia meddling into the 2016 elections. #Mueller #Politics #CNN #News.

I took some notes as Mueller gave his brief statement:

Muller is leaving the justice department to return to private practice.

- Advertisement -

"It was critical to obtain full and accurate information from every person we investigated."

"Report has two parts First volume details numerous efforts by Russia to influence the election. Conclusion there was insufficient evidence to support broader conspiracy."

"If we had confidence the president clearly did not commit a crime we would have said so."

- Advertisement -

"Charging the president with a crime was not an option we could consider."

"Constitution requires a process other than the criminal justice system to formally accuse the president."

"That report is my testimony. I would not provide any testimony beyond""

"The attempts by Russia to influence the elections deserves the attention of every American."

My take: Mueller made it clear he was not legally able to prosecute Trump, and another process is required. That process is impeachment. That is the message that screams from between the lines. And it's what Republican Justin Amash, making the call bipartisan says.

I just called my congressional representative-- Brian Fitzpatrick-- who represents a swing district and told him it is time to join Amash in calling for opening an impeachment investigation. Even if the Senate will not convict, it is the duty of the House to investigate. Failure to do so abrogates their responsibility to the constitution and to voters.

It's not clear a sitting president can't be charged with a crime, even if Muller & Justice believe so. If Trump really did shoot someone on 5th Ave. could he even be stopped if he can't be charged with a crime? What would be the process then?

Arresting someone is just step one in a process of charging someone with a crime. If you can't charge someone, can he even be arrested?

The closest thing is Diplomatic immunity, but even there, a diplomat can be stopped by police, and expelled from the country.

It's not clear a president has such immunity, and the courts have not made it fully clear, though there have been some rulings that address the issue.

Exactly. Who made the legal call that the president can't be charged or prosecuted? Is that the same kind of legal decision that was made allowing torture? I would assume that such a decision could be over-ruled by different administrations legal team-- if there were ever a team with integrity enough to do that.

See my comment to Scott... because it defines the lack integrity that enables the rogue lawyers to do whatever they want to do, for their clients... and of course, Barr's Client i Trump. He doe snot work for the American people.

Rogues. The lawyers who advice the politicians, and the government are rogues... that is IF the Rule of Law, --and the values by which they were underpinned, values that were embedded in them -- can be used as the models.

I have an entire file of links to articles that describe how a rogue lawyer found a loophole for a rich client, and shredded or skirted the rule of law.

We hear all the time about 'norms." Watch tv in prince time or go to the movies... t watch the behaviors that motivate today's society.

Behavior defines everyone, and anyone.

When the Supreme Court over turns decisions made by a past Supreme Court, then everything is over. There is precedent, and there i lawlessness!

But what do I know...I was born in 1941 which was in another time zone.

In American jurisprudence, we use the terms "guilty" and "not guilty."

To be "exonerated," one must first be charged with a crime. In this particular case, Robert Mueller recommended no charges--against Trump, or anyone associated with him. Conversely, Independent Counsel Ken Starr--in his September 11, 1998, report to Congress--outlined a case for impeaching Bill Clinton based on 11 charges--including perjury, obstruction of justice, witness-tampering and abuse of power.

Which proves that Special Counsel Robert Mueller could have done likewise--if he had proof that Trump committed any crimes. Instead, Mueller refused to testify before Congress, refused to answer any questions after his statement this morning, and looked shaky and nervous as he slithered away from his investigation and back into "private life."

But Uranium One won't just vanish; neither will his role in covering up 9/11.

And the Senate will never vote to remove Trump from office, even if House Dems are foolish enough to commit political suicide by bringing formal impeachment proceedings against him.

Did you actually listen to what Mueller said. He accepted the legal opinion that Trump could not be prosecuted so he did not consider charges. He made that very clear.


And I totally disagree with you about impeachment being suicide. NOT starting impeachment will be suicide. You're buying McConnell's and Trump's tripe about impeachment and how it hurt the Republicans with Bill Clinton. They impeached over a blow job. Trump is going to be impeached over very serious charges.

Do you think McConnell's senate will vote to impeach? I do not think that is remotely possible. If Congress spends the next year on this and continues to get absolutely nothing done for the people, while Trump continues to rob the treasury and turn over all of our money to billionaires and dismember all government agencies, no matter what happens in the election there will be nothing - nothing - left of this country . nothing left to save.

I tend to agree with that.

While the Democrats waste time and try an exhausted public's patience on an impeachment proceeding that will ultimately go nowhere, rile up Trump's 35% unshakeable base, and fail to get anything done for the next year and a half, Trump will get the cover he needs to hide his own failures and malfeasance.

Infrastructure is getting critical red now, with double the number of Mayors talking about it at the last Mayor's conference than the one a year ago. Trump is unable to deliver anything on infrastructure, which was the real reason for the blow-up at the White House last week. But having this impeachment threat hanging over him gives him cover - at least to his base and to virtually every Republican and many independents - and to not do anything he can't do anyway. It's all B.S. of course, but these folks don't care or don't understand that. They only see hate and persecution (not prosecution).

Rep. Justin Amash won't change that and he is toast now too, an object lesson to any Republican who steps out of line, even a Founder of the nefarious Freedom Caucus like Amash.

Mueller, a Republican, whiffed. He could have made it clear that anyone else but a president would have been charged with obstruction, lying to federal investigators (a felony), suborning perjury, etc., but he buried the findings so deep in the report only dedicated wonks can find them.

Pelousi, whatever her other faults, has good political instincts and she knows all this and that it would hurt Dems' chances in 2020. Trump knows it too.


On top of that, there is substantial doubt, even among the Left, that Russia hacked the DNC and provided info to Wikileaks, even if Mueller says it did and half his indictments are for Russians who will never stand trial. The VIPS say it can't have been Russia due to the download speed and the timestamps.

Many on the Left watch RTTV - and both Rob and I have been guests on that Russia-supported station. The charge that Russia put misleading info on FB etc. doesn't carry much weight with a public convinced it can tell truth from fiction, no matter the media, and what's that got to do with Trump anyway?


The Dems need to show they can cohere on how to govern, should they get the chance again. I'd like to see a list of the top 10 things they will do if they regain power, preferably endorsed by every major Democratic candidate. Trump is so abnormal, that this should not be as hard as it sounds. This would remind people of what normal, but progressive policies, look like.


Victory in 2020 - and that should include taking back the Senate - is by no means assured, and may even be unlikely. Say whatever you want about Republicans, but aside from Amash, they vote as a block and that's true of their base too. Given voting/election obstructions too, if I had to pick a winner today, I'd lean towards Trump again, unless we have a recession by then, which I give a 50-50 chance of happening (the Bond market is inverted and flashing red, almost always a sign of a recession looming). But even then, Trump has lined up the Fed and others as scapegoats for his own failures. He might get away with that too or at least scare people that "Socialist" Bernie Sanders would make things worse (he wouldn't, but it would take at least a year for increased middle class demand to stir a recovery, and that's if he gets his policies passed).

Exactly what are the very serious charges? Mueller couldn't find any. Congressional reps have access to the full unredacted report, but refuse to read it. Why? I suspect because if they did so, they would have to give up and end this madness.

I believe I addressed this issue to Lila in a separate comment below:

Yes, I listened to what Mueller said. Several times, in fact, before I left that comment. Incidentally (and as a general rule), I almost never pay attention to anything that Mitch McConnell says.

As I have stated here countless times in the past, I am an historian, not an ideologue; I expose criminals on both sides of our wretched duopoly with equal fervor. That said, I still contend that Mueller is a treacherous, lying weasel who--given his role in Uranium One, covering up 9/11, his involvement in the circumstances surrounding Whitey Bulger, and his previous witch hunts against Curt Weldon and Ted Stevens--should never have been presented with the authority or opportunity to investigate ANYONE, and certainly not the President of the United States...

And I still say the Democratic Party is doomed. Moving forward with the harebrained idea to impeach Trump, when Dems know it is wrong-headed and ultimately futile--considering the present composition of the Senate--will, in my studied opinion, act to expedite that reality.

To trust Mueller's report I would need to have some reason to trust Mueller. I do not. I have yet to see any hard evidence that "Russia" - we assume he refers to Putin and/or the Kremlin - interfered in any way with the 2016 election. When one of the 13 "click baiters" showed up in a DC court to defend his innocence, (much to Mueller's surprise) it turned out that Mueller had no evidence and no case against him. The case was dropped and the "click-baiter" returned to Russia. So yeah, I wonder what actual evidence that would stand up in court Mueller had against anybody at all for any offense. He is conveniently skipping town before any of the charges listed in his report can be challenged.

There is ample reason not to trust Robert Mueller. Among other things, it appears that he blatantly lied to the American people in his press conference this morning.

Mueller, in that statement, implied that restrictions imposed by the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) of the Department of Justice prohibited him from recommending charges against the president. However, AG William Barr--in preparation to release Mueller's report findings, back in March--specifically asked Mueller if OLC guidelines had any bearing on Mueller's decision, in his report, not to recommend charges against Trump.

Mueller said they didn't in March; today, though, he reneged on his earlier statement to Barr.

I think it is worse. Mueller is trying to keep the focus on Trump and off of his own illegal activity by innuendo - because he does not have actual evidence to present. Like Maddow he thinks he can get away with yelling "Russia interfered with the 2016 election" when he has no proof of that at all.

Trump is the most corrupt President in American history and that is saying a lot.

To fail to impeach him would be an act of cowardice and would only embolden his base and demoralize the progressive wing of the Democratic party. There are several reasons outside of the Mueller report on Trump's Russian connections that deserve examination. Only through an impeachment enquiry could they be properly examined.

Trump's 20 year relationship with Russian banks and oligarchs is public knowledge and should have been enough to stop the R party from giving him the nomination. We do not need impeachment hearings to learn of those likely illegal dealings - we already know.The guy is a gangster and always has been. He has also failed at every business enterprise he ever got involved in. The only charge that would stand up in daylight in an impeachment hearing is his use of the office of the presidency to get richer. They should focus on that and leave the rest to the biographers

That might be something, if it weren't for this:

click here

ey.com/money/5188095/donald-trump-net-worth-2018/

I was unable to find any articles stating that Trump's net worth has increased since he became president. Most estimates claim that Trump's net worth has dropped $1.5 billion--from $4.5 billion to $3 billion--since he announced for president in 2015. Additionally, for the ninth straight quarter (encompassing his entire presidency, thus far), Trump refused his presidential salary and diverted it instead to another area of the federal government.

Hardly the actions of a man who has used the presidency to enrich himself financially.

I have read several accounts of Trump housing Saudis and others at his hotels at high rates. I am not interested in the subject enough to research it, but there is probably something to it. If his tax returns are ever released I guess we will have an accurate picture/

"Given that Special Counsel Mueller was unable to pursue criminal charges against the President, it falls to Congress to respond to the crimes, lies and other wrongdoing of President Trump and we will do so," Nadler said in a statement. "No one, not even the President of the United States, is above the law."

"Mueller links Trump and campaign to 11 instances of potential obstruction of justice" - surely Pelosi can find something, anything, "if she starts there" just like the Republicans did for Democrat Bill Clinton ("I trust the American people") - Starr can find something, "anything will do" for the Republican Majority House. Oh, a personal "marital" matter between Bill, Hillary, and Monica - yes, "that's good enough" for Newt and the Republican House to impeach the president.

"Even for the hard core, this is where he turns into just a crooked business guy and one worth $50 million instead of $10 billion" - Steve Bannon.

I would be infinitely more interested in investigating AIPAC. Even though the facts are already out there.

The investigation should have been about Israel's and Saudi Arabia's collusion with US Presidents and Congress. Trump has managed to rip off the mask for all to see. The US has guaranteed Saudi Arabia's safety due to the Petro-dollar. The US to stay in the Saudis good graces, has based our foreign policy on their objectives, even willing to join them as being the largest financiers of terrorists in the world and the genocide in Yemen. The Saudi objectives also align with Israel's, as outlined in their "Clean Break" policy in 1996 and thus ours by dictate.

The job of the Democratic Party is to take out progressives in the primary, for a corporate shill favorable to their donors. Impeachment would just divert their efforts. The Democratic establishments are working hard to take down Bernie and Tulsi Gabbard. They would rather have Trump than a true progressive.

"The Trooper didn't catch you speeding and has no evidence that you were speeding, but he doesn't have confidence that you clearly weren't speeding so your insurance company should infer what they will and change your rates accordingly. That's what Mueller just did."

Bob Mueller is a prosecutor.


A prosecutor's job is to prove guilt.


He spent 675 days and 35 million dollars and still could not prove the President guilty of collusion or obstruction.


Case closed. Period. End of story.


Charlie Kirk


But let's have a do-over?

Somehow I don't think that will fly with the general public. Time to move on.

Bread and Circus, where is the Bread? I like the last paragraph of Catlin Johnstone's latest, "Stop Hoping That The Swamp, Will Drain The Swamp "

"All political analysis which favors either the Democratic Party or the Republican Party is inherently worthless, because both parties are made of swamp and exist in service of the swamp. If you can't see that the entire system is one unified block of corruption and that ordinary people need to come together and unite against it, then you really don't understand what you're looking at."

I am still waiting for Bush-2 and Obama to be impeached and charged with war crimes. Trump too. Not to do so is a war crime.

So... Comey delineates crime after crime which Hillary DID commit (yet Comey exonerates her, because she probably didn't 'intend' to break each law) ... THEN they come after Trump, cannot find a single crime nor establish an underlying substantive cause (yet they they "know he 'intended' to break the law) ... and these LEFTISTs are afforded a supportive MSM to distract their lazy audience to "look at THIS shiny object" ... It's worse than sad -- in fact it's tragic that, although Citizens are to be presumed to be innocent until proven guilty ... Trump and Hillary receive such drastically different treatments because the LEFTIST-Agenda is interrupted by people who WANT the whole world to follow the "instead of Christ" -- because they, like their luciferian predecessor(s), refuse to accept God's Word as Truth. Not surprising, but amazing to be alive to watch this prophesied scenario play out on the world stage right before our eyes! A wonderful time to be on earth. Maranatha! Yep, it's Pete again.

As Secretary of State Mrs. Clinton committed multiple acts of treason by selling US foreign policy for bribe money. Using her private home server to conceal her crimes was the least of it.

Getting bogged down in the minutia of the Mueller Report is distracting us from what our main task is. To topple this corrupt empire. We're not going to accomplish that by impeaching Trump or helping the useless Democrats gain back the senate and the White House. We're going to do it by refusing to co-operate with the corporate state. If we don't get laser focused on that task now, we will lose what little is left of our right to protest or publish anything critical of the power structure.

While we're distracted by the Trump/Mueller saga, they are stripping away what is left of the Bill of Rights. Good luck getting it back.

They Meuller report is a play by play of Trumps diaregard for the United States Constitution. Documented proof that he obstructed justice and abhors the balance of power. If we don't care about that nothing else matters.


As for Pelosi's "good political instincts" all that means to me is she makes it look like she's working but is not willing to do right thing of it will cost her politically. The democrats are useless cowards. They won't dare impeach Trump lest their dirty laundry be aired in public by those who decide they went to far.


Time to shed these lifers for people willing to be courageous and do the right thing.
