Trump says he probably won't watch Mueller hearing Trump comments on upcoming congressional testimony from former special counsel Robert Mueller. Fox News will be live streaming Mueller's testimony before ...

  Details   DMCA
Politico reports:
"Robert Mueller told lawmakers that his investigation of Russian interference into the 2016 campaign "did not address 'collusion,' which is not a legal term" contradicting President Donald Trump who has claimed that's what the special counsel's report found.

Mueller also noted that despite 10 potential instances of obstruction of justice, "based on Justice Department policy and principles of fairness, we decided we would not make a determination as to whether the president committed a crime."

Mueller confirmed that the president could be indicted after he leaves office.

Mueller made it clear that the report did not exonderate Trump and did not clear Trump of obstruction.

Fox News is focusing on the questions from Repubican committee members who are using their questioining opportunities to make opinion statements, rather than getting Mueller to say anything.

The real question is, can the Democrats get Mueller to actually say that the report provides information that would justify beginning of impeachment hearings.

Mueller is refusing to discuss the thinking behind decisions.

What are your observations? What is your take?

I've been watching the live feed from the NY Times all morning. Reporters are commenting along the way, and citing previous articles. This one from 2 years ago caught my attention because it seems to show that, contrary to Muller's testimony, a sitting president CAN be indicted. This comes from a 56 page memo by Ken Starr during the Clinton investigation.

So, Mueller is being selective...again, in what he chooses to interpret. Mueller is being castigated over that interpretation.


While I find parts of the findings thorough, there are major areas of the investigation that have not been pursued.

The idea that the Russians "hacked" the DNC server, is just taken as given, even though The Nation magazine, and VIPS, featured in that article, and elsewhere, have said that it was not physically possible for Russia to have hacked such a large volume of data in such a short period of time.


In general, the Democrats are focusing on the obstruction charge, while the Republicans are focusing on the underlying charges. Clearly, the Democrats do not believe there is sufficient evidence to charge the president with the underlying crime, for the most part. I agree there was obstruction to the investigation itself on the part of Trump, mostly in trying to fire the A.G. or impede the investigation.


Mueller is halting, hesitant and uncertain, also hard of hearing or can't always follow questions. He may be past his prime, and the NYT reporters say he was not like this in previous 80+ appearances before Congress, the last of which were 12 years ago. Mueller is deferring to the report a lot. It's a bit unfair to have 41 Congresspersons grill a single witness, no matter how expert, but Mueller's performance is clearly not inspiring.

Mueller perked up at the end, successfully rebutting Republican questions.

Nothing much has changed in this morning's testimony. The positions and findings may be new to many Americans, however.

Mueller confirmed that the Barr letter did not capture the findings of the Mueller report. But he did not identify those in his testimony and referred back to his statement and letter issued previously.

Throughout, Mueller has refused to delve into witness's mental operations, only behavior.

He has refused to use the word "impeachment".

Democrats are making a critical mistake in not immediately rehabilitating Mueller after a Republican strikes an effective and misleading blow.

#StallingForTime - the Democrats already have "all they need" to begin "impeachment hearings" immediately - Trump has already been "officially condemned" by the House for #RacistTweets and Rep Al Green (D-TX) has an Article of Impeachment "ready to go" on #bigotry but Pelosi ("the political capital of the president") may be "running out the clock" until "the next election" with her "investigating" Trump in lieu of asking her Super Democrat Majority House to vote for "impeaching the president". Trump #ArticlesOfImpeachment - Chairman Nadler should have/could have already started their "impeachment hearings" if they were "really serious" about "impeaching" Trump? #RussiaMeddled?

The Republicans are acting as trump's defense attorneys by trying to discredit Mueller. That is all they are doing. They don't care what trump has done, but only want to protect him at all cost. The facts and truth be damned.

If impeachment proceedings don't begin tomorrow, this country is finished.

I absolutely believe that Mueller found that trump did conspire with Russia/Putin, but didn't include it in the report out of fear that it would tear this country to shreds. There was WAY too much Russian smoke for there to not have been a fire.

Right on cue Pelosi says there will be no impeachment proceedings and will only challenge trump in the courts. She ensured we will be re-trumped.

Congratulations liberal Democrats, you have wasted 3 years obsessing about a phony Russian conspiracy to elect Trump (sarcasm). Instead of attacking his politics, you have inflamed world tensions, helped create a Cold War 2.0.

You have given the MIC a huge gift to militarize the world against a chicken-little paranoia about "Russian Aggression". In doing so it is likely that you have handed Trump reelection in 2020.

The worst crime which should keep you awake at night is that you have abandoned the millions of people who are being slaughtered all over the world in US wars of aggression. Social programs at home have been ignored because you have been sucked into the politics of distraction from real issues.

Real journalists suck as Arron Mate, Ray McGovern, Glen Greenwald and too few others have completely debunked Russian interference in the 2016 election. Since there was no collusion it is impossible for their to have been any obstruction of justice when no crime has been committed.

You have elevated the criminal FBI, CIA and other fascistic US oppressive state organs to heros, whom you idolize as upholders of justice. You have been silent while a real hero Julian Assage has been criminalized, tortured and imprisoned for telling the truth. Those who fought for civil rights and anti-war causes are spinning in their graves.

The damage has been done, regardless of the facts, and the consequences will be with us for decades.

(example of real reporting by a jagoff comedian in his garage and a real journalist.)

Your comment is the only thing worth reading here. The article included. How reasonable adults can entertain the possibility that the Rooskys needed to "intervene" in our bogus elections still mystifies me. Why would anybody give a sh*t what Orange Mussolini watches or doesn't watch. Meanwhile school buses are being bombed by our "allies" and people are dying from our bombs and "sanctions". People live in tents in the Great USofA and the drinking water causes brain damage. But let's agonize over the television habits of a fool who probably can't even find the countries we are bombing on a map.

Everything you says true, and I loved David's response... but then, this angry child man seeking his fathers validation forever, is so incompetent, so self-absorbed to the point of being able to ignore the very laws that govern our land-- that he is dangerous.

He needs to be exposed in front of the people, not by the media but by the branch of government the is set up to do this.

The world knows who he is... everyone who has ever met him knows what he is-- and they taught at the US, as they take their trade elsewhere, isolating us. He made America alone and abandoned, untrustworthy and a laughitng stock.

he has emptied the WH of staff, and has allowed his 'temps' to eradicate rules of clean air, for clean water, for use of the national lands... he is the destructor... and even if he did' collude, everyone knows about his permission to grab women's' genitals, and then there is the story Maria.

Don't miss this. Meryl put Robert Reich's analysis of this moment in time... a great explanation.

All of the Russian indictments have been thrown out of court. The rest had virtually nothing to do with the case. The judge ordered Mueller to NEVER again say he had proof those Russians indicted had anything to do with the election. The "intelligence" report was pure frivolous (a 12 year old could see that). The VIPS provide the most evidence to date regarding the server/emails, the latter was never forensically processed - the VIPS finding: it was NOT hacked, but leaked via download and handed off to Craig Murray, who passed it on the Wikileaks.

This was a ruse from the get-go to distract from what the DNC and HRC campaign had done to Bernie.

Shut and closed case. The problem with Trump is how deeply he represents what we don't want to admit - not just who we are by what we say, but what we do through our actions, inactions and complicity.

Not least of which is the slaughter of innocent men, women and children by our bombs and sanctions.

As you say, David William Pear. Bravo, "The worst crime which should keep you awake at night is that you have abandoned the millions of people who are being slaughtered all over the world in US wars of aggression. Social programs at home have been ignored because you have been sucked into the politics of distraction from real issues".

While the circus performs behind the curtain our Treasure, Commons and Inalienable Rights of citizens worldwide are being stripped in plain sight on a daily basis. At home the House passes resolution condemning boycott of Israel, freedom of speech no longer exist and it is one more in your face, in plain sight!

We know most of the members of Congress have taken an oath to a foreign country over the rights and preview of US citizens, they have just overwhelmingly approved a non-binding resolution that condemns the BDS movement as harmful to the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, stopping short of openly declaring it anti-Semitic. HR 246, which was introduced in March by Rep Bradley Schneider (D-Illinois), passed with flying colors in a 398 to 17 vote in the House of Representatives on Tuesday. The bill opposes the BDS movement and particularly any "efforts to target American companies. AIPAC immediately welcomed the resolution, claiming that BDS is discriminatory and "disguises its true intentions under the banner of human rights. sic

The modus operandi continues to reveal itself. Not because you did not see it, as it really is hiding in plain sight. Never before has the death of a free and open society reached such crescendo brought to us by what is a transnational criminal cabal.

Bread and Circus in these modern times has led to a state terrorism, propaganda and if you do look behind the curtain you have better not speak of it.

"You have been silent while a real hero Julian Assage has been criminalized, tortured and imprisoned for telling the truth. Those who fought for civil rights and anti-war causes are spinning in their graves".

The loss of a free and open press as a megaphone of the true State of the Union and its loss of impact of voice in our governance, it's Treasure, Commons and Inalienable Rights here and abroad, This defining our future whether you just stumble blindly while making ends meet or have been paying attention and are being drug into this participation in War (at all levels local to international) and into a process of "grotesque self-deception".

"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing tactics, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain

OF COURSE Trump will watch him, then listen to Fox, and then tweet away... hopefully he will once again shoot himself in the mouth.

Already the dictator-in-chief told his lackeys at the Justice (LOL) Department to order Mueller to NOT answer questions. which is pure obstruction; but then, ignorance of the Laws 'allows' a president to interfere with both the legislative and judicial branches... right?

Mueller's report lays out damning evidence about Trump's obstruction of justice and makes it clear that Trump and his team amplified, defended, and encouraged the Russian attack along the way.

In case you didn't read the 448-page report but only go to see Lackey-General Barr's black striped version, here are another 20 Questions Congress Should Ask Robert Mueller

Well,, Mueller asked the DOJ how to respond. And when asked about how this all began and he said he can't say and did not know what Fusion GPS was, he admitted this was now being investigated. So he and his team and more are being investigated now by the FBI inspector general. If his lawyer is any good he has been told to say nothing new as the investigators are being investigated.

That was a massive fail for the Dems. Mueller came off as a befuddled old fool that didn't seem to be in charge of his investigation. 3 years of this bogus investigation and the Dems are still trying to wiggle impeachment out of it.


Mueller: "Uhhh uhhh, can you repeat that question?

Uhhh uhhh, I am uhhh, uhhh I, uhhh, I'm uhhh not uhhh, I uhhh am not going uhhh to uhhh speak to that uhhh.

Uhhh I'm uhhh not going to uhhh uhhh to get into that, uhhh, that uhhh was not uhhh in our uhhh purview."


Stunning testimony.

"Aaron Mate' recaps Robert Mueller's Congressional appearance, which delivered no new bombshells; more unhinged Russia-baiting; and only more doubts about the Russia investigation and the Democrats that promoted it..."

The combination of the publication of the Mueller report and the open letter from hundreds (now 1000+) former fed prosecutors was the high-water mark for impeaching Trump. Pelosi then and now opposed impeachment for political reasons. The staging of yesterday's hearing was one more stall by senior Dem leaders. They also refuse to ask for Trump's NY tax returns in spite of a recent NY law allowing this. Depressing!

I was dissappointed at first but after giving it time to settle I think democrats did what they had to Considering Muellers demanor. It would have been good to see him rebutt some of the ridiculos accusations from repubs. However i think dems should have used their last 3 quetioners in each committee to rebutt the repubicans Some of that they could have seen coming and staffers could have witten a response during the hearing and given it to the last few questioners but all in did well. It wont change anything however. They will need to pound home day after day from now to election all the crap republicans are spewing.

The fed is not "sitting on the sidelines" during the Mueller era of "investigations" and "congressional hearings", which have been seeking "a good reason" (#RacistTweets #Bigotry "not enough" for Pelosi/Nadler) for the super Majority House Democrats to "impeach Trump" - the fed "central bankers" have "raised the interest rates" eight times already in Trump's first three years in office and they also are selling off their balance sheet assets rather "quickly" (#QT - "Quantitative Tightening" which restricts "monetary liquidity" in the economy") which has at least a "six months" delay before another "recession and/or stock market crash" at the time voters are heading to the polls and deciding Trump's reelection bid - Trump "ran on the economy" but the fed may have already "decided the outcome" (Trump rejected by the voters in 2020?). Trump carries "trillion dollar deficits", "going forward", largely deliberately and even carelessly caused by his reckless corporate "tax cuts" for the wealthy and if the fed were to decide on "raising interest rates" only a .25% "quarter basis point" more that would astronomically raise the Trump's deficit many trillions more and quite possibly totally destroy Trump's inflated budgets to come forever more - impossibility to "borrow" so many trillions more just to pay down the "interest" due on the national debt in lieu of the Treasury issuing new debt-free money (United States Note) as legal tender "for the benefit of the American public rather than the benefit of the banking industry".
