  • Alfred Degiorgio Post author

    Mueller's recent statement was a wake-up call for House Democrats to do their duty and impeach Trump. He clearly believes that his report and relevant documents provide enough evidence for a credible impeachment bill. Barr would then be forced to give the House the unredacted report that it needs to prove Trump's multiple obstruction-of-justice acts before the Senate.

    Trump has undermined our Constitution and has assumed dictatorial powers; he created two fake national emergencies and is blocking valid House oversight investigations. Should the House surrender its impeachment power, Trump will hijack more (all?) of its powers before the 2020 election. Opponents of impeachment-now are encouraging Trump to do his worst; he has nothing to lose! The more time he's given the more mayhem he'll cause! Why is this simple concept so hard to understand?

    Those are the transcripts that prove the Obama administration was spying on Trump. It goes all the way to the top. Sorry dems, you been lied to for three years.

  • The Philosopher of Culture Post author

    It is civil war in the USA. The people who believe in The Constitution versus the raiders, grifters and pillagers who managed to misinform and fool the American people for 40 years and are now reaping the rewards. They expect another $5000 billion after 2020 if Trump gets re-elected. It is all fought in the news media. The news media that the government calls 'fake news' try to bring out the actual news, and the Fox and Sinclair channels are promoting the government's statements so that they themselves won't be considered what they are, viz. the really fake news. It is an interesting situation from propaganda point of view. http://thephilosopherofculture.blogspot.com/2018/12/the-sources-for-human-manipulation.html

    How many trial lawyers are looking at precedence with Trumpt's obstruction, and denial of judge's orders with their own clients. You want my client's cell phone records, yeah right, go blow!! Nice democracy and rule of law we have there.

    This country is getting sicker by the day… Looks like we now have six instead of three separate branches of government : 1.The Executive 2.The Legislative Senate 3.The Legislative House of Representatives 4.The Judicial Supreme Court 5.The Judicial Lower Federal Courts & 6.The Department Of Justice… The Trump Republicans are in complete control of 4 out of the Newly created 6 Branches of the Government of The United States of Ambiguity…. or all but The House and Lower Federal Courts. I'm gonna go listen to some Old Beatles songs and hope that All right will be All corrected and the country has sanity again and very soon.

    You say you want a revolution

    Well, you know

    We all want to change the world

    You tell me that it's evolution

    Well, you know

    We all want to change the world

    But when you talk about destruction

    Don't you know that you can count me out

    Don't you know it's gonna be

    All right, all right, all right

    You say you got a real solution

    Well, you know

    We'd all love to see the plan

    You ask me for a contribution

    Well, you know

    We're doing what we can

    But if you want money for people with minds that hate

    All I can tell is brother you have to wait

    Don't you know it's gonna be

    All right, all right, all right

    You say you'll change the constitution

    Well, you know

    We all want to change your head

    You tell me it's the institution

    Well, you know

    You better free you mind instead

    But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao

    You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow

    Don't you know it's gonna be

    20/20 will bring revolution. gop are confident they will win with Russia help, Kushner and others with invalid clearance are now helping Russia prepare by providing classified info, so All Americans know if trump wins it’s because he helped Russia and blocked attempts to prevent it….as a simple lay person it looks like the centrist dems are helping as well. I am a laborer with only a ged. Don’t you think everyone else gets it too?

    If Obama were under investigation for half of Trump's, the republicans would've had papers flying all over the place. About 80% of people connected to Trump are more or less criminals. The judge should have the prosecutor thrown in jail, period. No one is above the law–one of Barr's lines LOL. He's a lying joke-just like his boss.

    Wow so an individual can now tell a judge they aren't going to obey his instructions. The judge would throw me or you in jail. Why not the Whitehouse. Donnie keeps screaming treason, it sounds as if he is definitely involved in this matter. This group of people are definitely the most crooked Whitehouse staffers that I can ever remember.

  • Jeannie Michelle Phillips Post author

    Omg 😱!!! How many more times are we going to hear about Trump interference with this drama. I don't care if it is a president doing it or if it was Joe Blow off the street. Trump is his own worse evidence by trying to stop the investigation. Trump never hide anything. I just see a government just doing a crappy job. Nixon went as far as hiding a tape recorder. Trump is all out there and not hiding anything and even tried to get some of the White House staff to do his dirty work. President or No Presiden law has been broken. Here is a question. What is the difference between Nixon and Trump? Clinton was royally screwed then was acquitted over an instance that was a husband and wife. So, the longer they keeping like Trump done nothing with when he has a long history of his cons, scams,fraud, unpaid taxes, undocumented employees and the list goes on and on. It is amazing that how Trump been able to survive this long especially with the Italian and Russian Mob over the years. Yes, I done my homework. I truly believe it is way over due for some new changes to be done with the election process and righting the wrong when it comes to NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAWS not anyone with a nice bankroll and especially a standing President/ Vice President. I truly want to believe in the legal system.

  • Wassily Kandinsky Post author

  • Thomas Thompson Post author

    This is quite extraordinary; and it fully demonstrates that the Executive Branch of our government no longer feels any obligation to obey the orders of federal courts or the orders of the pertinent Congressional Committees presently investigating Trump's perfidies. In the case of the Department of Justice's refusal to release the pertinent transcript, they should either have sought a reconsideration of the judge's order or a delay in producing the requested transcript. If they did neither, that's simply astonishing. A federal court judge is not going to be disobeyed with impunity. The only question is whether the judge will have the courage to actually fine and jail some of these DOJ lawyers for contempt. His best bet is to have the Attorney General himself arrested and jailed. That may be the only thing that gets their attention and persuades them that the Court means business.

  • fungoorstitch Post author

    This is very simple. Trump and his legion of doom knew the Russians were tampering with the election and let it happen. That's a clear violation of the people's trust and makes Trump a witting conspirator. It's more than enough to impeach. Lest we forget, subverting the election process is the ultimate dagger in the breast of democracy. For the House of Representatives to believe impeachment is a choice is, in point of fact, an outrage. The preponderance of evidence compels it regardless of agenda, motive or outcome. If Pelosi doesn't take point on it, she needs to go.

  • Uniqueness Entertainment Post author

    so how much more do we all need to see to realize that our government is being hostage are white house being taken over my foreign enemies including our president. Trump is the lap dog for Putin when Putin throw him a bone AKA a bonus Trump sells us out even more. Wake up Congress and every individual in here wake up. This is not United States as you think it is it's becoming divided real fast real quick. And the equality and prosperity is not Rising it is falling for everybody who is not rich Elite.

  • robert walton Post author

    The judge should summon them to his court and jail them immediately before anyone an make a move…right on the spot as soon as they enter the building. Then only he can release them. Start jailing these lawbreakers NOW !! If they still don't release them then he should sentence Flynn to thirty years.

    I wonder how many comments would be left in here if foreign trolls had real jobs. The conversations they play both sides of are too deep to be legit ;/ And, no, my foreign friends: deliberate writing mistakes don't seem more authentic. But, hey, even Trump and his Trolls gets that wrong. "Spell correctly? Must be a globalist elite!"

    I'm not surprised that Trump's DOJ is only about justice for the rich.

    Pretend like Hillary Clinton was president. What would happen to the members of her administration if they did this? The same thing should happen to these individuals.

    The Department of Justice is covering up for Trump and his traitorous co-conspirators like Flynn. Is letting Russia influence our government making America great again, MAGA?

  • John Peterson Post author

    Anne Marie, there are literally no facts against him. But, of course you'd believe your liberal media.

  • Kevin Winn Post author

    In the future (assuming we survive long enough as a species to have schools) the Trump presidency will be used as an example of what a fascist takeover looks like in a first-world-country civil war.

    I wish I were being hyperbolic.

    Well it turns out that Mueller omitted a piece of that phone message that changes the context of the entire conversation. So why did he do that? Surely a transcript means the entirety of the voice message.Seems that Mueller is omitting evidence from his report. I wonder how many other bit of information were selectively edited.

    When Barr was nominated for this job every person who is even marginally sane knew why he was being nominated. Why this drama now?

    Judge Sullivan ordered Mueller's team not AG Barr's DOJ, since it was The Mueller Team that prosecuted Gen Flynn, to hand over the audiotape. Judge Sullivan was already given the transcript. The transcript was quoted in The final Mueller Report Vol 2, but surprisingly the actual audio recording was selectively edited, & different than the transcript provided by Mueller's Team(prosecutors)to Sullivan's Court & Mueller's Final over 400 page Investigation Report. The Mueller team, attempted to alter the audiotape to make it appear that Trump's lawyer, & Trump himself obstructed Justice. Mr Dowd was absolutely surprised that the lying transcript was used in a US Court & recorded in Mueller's 30 plus million dollar special counsel report. So basically, there is probable cause to believe that Gen Flynn's orginal FBI ambush by Peter Strzok & 302's were changed, at least 3 different times. At one point James Comey testified that Flynn never lied. Since the Mueller Report blatantly implied that The FBI had Gen Flynn under surveillance, at the time he spoke with Russian Ambassador, Judge Sullivan wants the truth. So evidence exists, including a NSA Whistleblower that The FBI & CIA set up Gen Flynn. His call with The Russian Ambassador was part of a very normal & routine action by an incoming investigation. It seriously took place 2 or 3 weeks before Gen Flynn was to officially become National Security Adviser, so it's not at all uncommon. In 2008, CANDIDATE OBAMA held back channel communications with Iran. Some also say President Elect Reagan, held back channels with Iran, about hostage negotiations. The Logan Act has been DEFUNCT & OUT OF DATE for over 200 years. Yet, we have John Kerry going to Iran, bypassing the current Executive Administration, but never heard of The FBI, rolling up to ambush him. The way they did to Gen Flynn, & implied A Logan Act Violation, which is not probable cause to warrant an FBI interview. Basically, not everything in Mueller's Report is solid FACT.

    The Honorable Judge Emmit Sullivan is ruling over a man, who was not at the time of his crime, protected by any Priviege (certainly not executive privilege). He was still just an unregistered freelance Foreign (double) Agent selling out his countrys' interests to Russian Oligarch and Turkish Oligarch interests for cash. That is the new normal.

    So did we ever get supplementary information or is the Trump DoJ still telling the judge "These aren't the drones you are looking for"?

    As an outsuder looking in, my advice to those who arent republicans and mainly to those who are democrats is to get hold of your party. You are going to lose again it's impossible for you to win while you have these extreme left globalist newbies like AOC, Swalwell etc. You have to rember only 8% of the US consider themselves a progressive or in support of the far left. 17% consider themselves Always Republican. But the main figure is the 56% of people who consider themselves independent and not solely in allegiance with one side. So with the US essentially being a 2 party system you have 2 groups fighting to get as many people from the centre over to their side. At the moment, the democrats (although some are trying to keep the lid on) aren't speaking out and often in support if these fake hate crimes we've seen, they're in support of higher taxes , of more rules and government control and are just pushing for too much and too irrational ..change . Regardless of what a few people on the far left say, the way to get past President Trump is Definately NOT by becoming more insane, more anti American, more open borders and government handouts from high taxation, media outlets calling everybody racist , not calling out a terrorist organisation in Antifa, by only discussing black folk being shot by the police but not the higher (even per capita) number of whites killed by police etc.
    This is the reason if you look at 'The Squad' , their overall approval ratings are between 1 and 9% . But Trump is at an all time record high if 56% with only 13months to go.
    The expression 'The truth/the answer lies somewhere in the middle' is accurate. Extremes alienate the majority.

    I have no dog in this fight but sometimes we can't see the wood for the trees. And I can see the whole forest. Up to you.

    Statements like Ms. Dunlap's are indicative of why demoRATS cannot be entrusted with the reins of government. DemoRATS are actually Stalinists. Some like Ms. Dunlap are even worse, they are clinically insane + have terrible judgement.
