What Robert Mueller's questions for Donald Trump reveal about the Russia investigation
https://www.cnn.com/2018/05/01/politics … index.html
It's interesting that the questions were leaked to the New York Times - our government has an uncontrollable problem with leaking and it's likely going to cause someone injury or worse in the future. I'm certain many people (including James Comey) feel its acceptable to leak something if it hurts President Trump (taking the so-called "moral high ground" approach) but it won't end there. Each future administration will face the same issues until someone puts a stop to it.
I think that the preponderance of evidence today proves what everyone knows at this point without one doubt . Mueller needs to contain his LEAKING Titanic of an investigation .
In fact, if there was ever a time to end this catastrophe of an investigation , it would be most evident right now , I've mistakenly stated lately to let it play out to remove all doubt to the public but when the public is informed of the process by LEAKING , maybe it IS time Trump fired the apparently incompetent Mueller !
Hey there ahorseback, have you heard any of the stories that the leak came from the White House, not Mueller's team? The stories are also saying the leaked questions are not Mueller's questions to the White House, but the President's attorney's summation of the question areas Mueller notified Pres. Trump's legal council they were interested in.
Do you think all that is fake news and it really was Mueller's team that leaked to the New York Times? Even thou, (I think), the NYT identified their source as a White House source?
So, now Trump's former lead attorney John Dowd is "leaking" what Mueller told President Trump's legal team during a meeting in March. Dowd was asked if he had leaked the list of questions, but he denied it.
What I don't understand is Trump's ascertain, "I won't answer the questions because it is all fake. There is no collusion." If it is fake, just answer truthfully. What harm will it do? I have been asked questions, after being accused, and had no problem answering truthfully.
What's wrong with telling the truth?
It sets precedent for the future - Mueller does not have oversight on what a sitting President does or doesn't do. Why should we start granting power to a subordinate of the Executive Branch with that much power?
Not sure which country of jurisdiction you're referring to, but via his special prosecution here in the United States, Robert Mueller does indeed have the right and authority to investigate, subpoena and of course indict the sitting illegitimate president, and from the leaked questions, it looks like the law got Spanky on we'd assume several counts of Obstruction of justice and conspiracy at an absolute minimum:
Who's Spanky? Maybe you should brush up on the term 'Executive Privilege' and how Presidents can be prosecuted. I'm not here to argue with you, so if you feel Mr. Mueller has the "goods" on President Trump then you should definitely run with it. Enjoy your day and remember what comes around goes around!
Spanky is the 71 year old man who Stormy Daniels said she 'spanked' lightly with a magazine or newspaper or whatever up in Lake Tahoe a while back: She said It was consensual and Spanky was caught in shall we say, a very compromising and embarrassing position: She has filed a couple of law suits against him that have recently been bolstered by Spanky's new attorney, Rudy Giuliani, the crazy guy who apparently likes to dress up as a woman:
Experts agree that Spanky may have waved any 'executive privilege' or perhaps in many cases it doesn't even apply, but with all the 'goods' the prosecution must have on him and perhaps his family, with regard to obstruction of justice, abuse of power and conspiracy, I guess we'll soon find out how effective 'batty' Rudy is with asserting all that 'ep' stuff:
You're parties so full of the disease of hypocrisy , if Bill Clinton and Monica can get it on IN the white house , giving Monica all the "On the Job Training " any W.H. intern could even need , why is the sex life of Trump before he was even a candidate so offensive to your delicate sensibilities ? Is it jealousy ? That's it isn't it for liberals ,the beautiful Stormy to walk by you on the street and not even make eye contact ?
In case you haven't heard, Bill Clinton is a retired grandpa in NY now and was impeached for his disgraceful behavior: The 'Stormy' part of Spanky Trump's downfall has nothing to do with his risky one night stand that she said was 'generic', it's all about the pre-election payoff of Stormy by Cohen: A payoff which 'batty' Rudy Giuliani turned into a raging inferno for Spanky in just a few short minutes on fox fake channel a couple days ago:
Rudolph has now applied another noose of felony criminal behavior around Spanky's double neck, another count to go along with obstruction, conspiracy, abuse of power, constitutional violations, treason etc:
Spanky cult members can thank this man / woman:
If he were a suspect in a murder, would you feel the same way. What is the red line between doing what you want to do and be subject to the law?
Many, many innocent people have gone on trial.
RJ did you say that about Kenneth Starr and his runaway horse of an investigation into "Clintongate"? Republicans thought it was A-OK back then. It was OK to put an innocent woman, Susan McDougal, in jail, right? Susan was just the "trophy wife" of old Jim McDougal and didn't really know enough to tell all, but Starr certainly made an example of her. The shoe pinches when it's on the wrong foot.
In this case it can, and has, produced a sudden interest in things far removed from the topic. Interest that leads to a conviction of some other, completely unrelated, crime.
Plus, of course, any answer that could possibly be used (whether reasonable or not) for slinging political mud will be promptly "leaked". There is a very good reason this "investigation" has been termed a witch hunt, for that's exactly what it is. A desperate search for political mud, cloaked and excused by a legal investigation with all the resources of the US government behind it, into something that never happened.
Conspiracy, obstruction of justice, abuse of power and derivatives thereof, three serious crimes against the United States for which there is a mountain of public evidence to potentially prove your president committed, are at the center of the criminal investigation: The scope also includes crimes that may 'sprout' out of the investigation:
This doesn't include potential treason, money laundering, shady business dealings etc etc or his pending emoluments clause violations which creates the current constitutional crisis: The depth of corruption in this white house is unprecedented and unreal, and we have a nut case in the oval office who at this point, probably believes he can get away with just about anything:
There sure is - a mountain of public evidence. Stuff like that you produce - claims without a hint of evidence or even truth. Some day you will have to accept that your opinion is worthless without hard evidence to back it up - that empty claims are not proof of anything or even evidence.
You're not really srious right? Well, here's just one exhibit of public evidence related to obstruction of justice, this excludes the additional non public evidence the Mueller prosecution team must have unearthed:
Spanky confesses that he was going to fire Comey regardless of the Rosenstein memo and he also had Russia on his mind when he did it: Nothing better than a filmed confession:
Here's a photo of the suspects in that secret 'conspiratorial' meeting between Donny Junior, Kushner, Manifort who has already been indicted for conspiracy against the United States, and several Russian spies but don't worry, I guess accepting a covert meeting with the enemies of the United States with the intent to receive stolen U.S. property and perhaps even worse, is now acceptable:
Donny's must be going straight to prison, and from witnessing his raging little tizzy fits on fox channel, it must be sinking in:
Anything that is "public" information is what has been filed in the courts. Is fake information being filed in court? These attorneys jobs depend on what they do. Are they really going to pursue leads from Spanky haters?
Not sure what you mean diane, but two hardcore facts pertaining to public evidence against Spanky and family were posted in my previous comment and from the leak of Mueller's questions, they must have him on Obstruction of justice, abuse of power and conspiracy at a minimum and thank God:
I agree with you. I don't understand how they accuse people of making stuff up. Information coming out is from people that have some proximity to the alleged facts.
One of Donny Junior's E*Mails became public months ago and he confirmed it: The correspondence in essence and I paraphrase, was an invitation from a Russian Spy to Donny for them to meet secretly and discuss dirt on Hillary and they did according to Donny Juniors own testimony::
Regardless of an individuals ignorance of the law, meeting with a Russian Spy with the intent to conspire and subvert American Democracy such as an election, is a crime in and of itself: White Nationalist Lover Steve Bannon said he thought there was a zero percent chance Donny Senior, aka Spanky was unaware the meeting took place considering his relationship with his children and the location of the secret scheme, TRUMP Castle:
Let this sink in for a moment: right before the presidential election, Donny Junior, Manifort and Kushner were entertaining Russian Spies for what can only be described as nefarious purpose on their premises at Trump Castle: UNREAL:
Mueller understands fact from fiction and he's probably looking for corroborating evidence to support what he presumably already knows, did Donny Senior know about the meeting, hence the questions pertaining to this segment of the criminal investigation:
"Well, here's just one exhibit of public evidence related to obstruction of justice, this excludes the additional non public evidence the Mueller prosecution team must have unearthed"
Nice! But your pretty little meme is not proof of collusion; only that you WISH it was. But I love that "non public" evidence (that neither you nor anyone else has ever seen) that Mueller "must have" found. Meaning, of course, evidence that your imagination conjures up and that you hope will be found one day. Not much for actual proof, are you?
The trump tower meeting between Donny Junior and Russian Spies is indeed strong evidence of not collusion, but conspiracy: I never claimed collusion: FYI: Donny Senior probably obstructed justice again today when he went on a little twit tizzy crying fit by tweeting this winner:
"A Rigged System - They don’t want to turn over Documents to Congress. What are they afraid of? Why so much redacting? Why such unequal “justice?” At some point I will have no choice but to use the powers granted to the Presidency and get involved!"
lol, I'l bet Mueller must have printed and distributed this little doozy for his prosecution team to comb over: And then some people wonder why he can't retain a descent, reputable attorney, who wants to represent a nut case pathological liar who probably won't even pay his bill?
"The trump tower meeting between Donny Junior and Russian Spies is indeed strong evidence of not collusion, but conspiracy"
That's great! Now all you need is a secret recording of that meeting so you can tell us all what was said. Not what you THINK was said, but what the conversation actually was. Of course, that has nothing to do with an investigation into colluding with the Russian government to throw the election...
There may indeed be recordings given the the Trump family history of stupidity but not necessary, I'll bet Mueller has all the E*Mails he needs and perhaps phone correspondence to nail the conspiracy down and this is just one exhibit related to conspiracy against the United States, there are several additional public exhibits:
But there MUST be recordings! How else do you know what went on in the meeting - what was said and "conspired"?
Or wait. You don't know, do you? Even though you said you did, you haven't the faintest idea what was said and are just making up more tales without caring if they're true or not. (Betting that Mueller has "all the E*Mails he needs isn't knowing anything at all. If it did we'd all be rich betting which number comes up next on the roulette wheel.)
Here in the United States, when an individual who claims to an American citizen, as Donny Junior we assume does, secretly communicates with and thereafter sets up a secret meeting at Trump castle with an enemy Russian spy(s) with the explicit intent to receive info which would undermine and subvert a democratic election, and my recollection says E*Mails made public months ago confirm this activity, that's called conspiracy and even reaches the level of treason:
From the line of leaked questions, Mueller seems to have the goods on Donny Junior and 'disposable' kushner which is obvious even from public info, and piggy S Bannon said there is zero percent chance that grampy Trump didn't know about the secret meeting:
"with the explicit intent to receive info which would undermine and subvert a democratic election"
Proof, please, of his intentions? You must have a letter he wrote you before the fact explaining what he intended to do?
"Mueller seems to have the goods on Donny Junior"
"Seems to" isn't much in the way of proof, don't you know? You do seem to have real trouble distinguishing between evidence or proof and your own imagination. Should probably work on that.
"S Bannon said there is zero percent chance that grampy Trump didn't know about the secret meeting"
I presume you have a copy of the recordings from Trump that Bannon used to make his statement - would you care to share them publicly? Claims are just SO much better for having proof they are true, don't you think?
wilderness, I'd suggest you become acquainted with the public evidence available in the public domain: It's non-productive to discuss this extremely dire situation with individuals who are simply not up to speed:
Just try not to be overly surprised and devastated when Spanky and more than likely other members of his family are indicted:
Well, I try for evidence; I ask you for it all the time. It's just not forthcoming - all you do is is dig into your imagination for what you'd like to have people believe rather than provide any actual, factual information.
I wonder how many witch hunts led to our overcrowded penal system. Maybe some of those cases should be reiewed and people freed.
Nope, Spanky has his ass in a bind with many different crimes being looked at by Mueller. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean it isn't a proper investigation. I'll bet you really hated it when Bill had to sit down and answer questions from the prosecutor, or did you?
About a dirty blue dress! I wonder what Stormy has hidden in her video.
No tellin', Diane. It's funny how Spanky's supporters don't care how many lies he tells or what he tells them about. If Hillary or Obama acted in such a manner they would have been strung up, but this cretin gets applause from his supporters. Disgusting to say the least.
WE all know that "Sources say " is about as official sounding as it get's ,-ex. If I were to say CNN sources, who absolutely hate the entire administration, do you think I'm going to divulge that my sources were say the FBI or the DOJ or Mueller himself and lose that source or do you think I might say , "our White House sources say .........." ?
No , I don't trust anything the media tells me about where their places of origin for Trump resistance news bias originates .
For the information of the TR's ,Trump Resistance , he isn't likely to ever testify , maybe .....maybe in private but it will never give TR's any satisfaction for one because these TR's suffer a common plague of political immaturity and insatiable obstructionism .
Meanwhile Trump popularity 51 % or in other words ....................WaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaMama !
Somebody call the wambulance .
The incredible genius of the above rants : give us all one.....one ......one indictable offense for Trump to date ?
Fill in the blank,
Yea..... we know , orange hair .
