Adam Schiff: Barr Memo Claim On Need For Obstruction Decision 'Flimsy' |...

Barr had better be very careful not to lie. He could be charged with either obstruction or contempt of Congress. It is galling to see so many public officials mistreat Congress members with their own versions of "facts" with no support, as Betsy DeVoss for example, who; not only wasted precious Congressional time, preventing and/or slowing the corrective processes, but who showed utter contempt for Congressional oversight powers, by spewing some half baked inane garbage she made up "on the fly" for which she couldn't produce any material or studies.  Taking the committee and it's authority as some sort of joke.

While I understand Congressional reluctance to use contempt citations as a tool, because of the political nature of many examinations. Congress is being treated with such contempt of itself, it is approaching the point of becoming almost laughably ineffective. With the possibility of personal penalties in the offing, I doubt; these Trump syncopants, would have much stomach to make their dodging efforts.

Trump Aide Who Cooperated: ‘Bad Things’ Coming In Mueller Report | The B...

American reporters, ha! No Cronkites here, they are running with a newly released document that even Barr has panicked an hastened to say is no "summary" of the Mueller report. So what then is it? It's just worthless spinning written by a Trump syncopant, attempting to please his master.  The report does not say there was no collusion,  the report says what such reports always say:  that they will not draw any conclusions from the evidence they have gathered. They will leave it to Congress to draw conclusions.



You would have to be a very special sort of idiot to think that all these highly skilled and highly trained people, qualified to earn hundreds of thousands and millions of dollars per year, would place their entire lives and reputations in serious jeopardy, by lying to Congress about something that was legal and innocent,  if somewhat objectionable.



Flynn, for example, was a general. Generals, as a rule, do not lie unless it is about something extremely critical and usually not even then.  Generals do not tell needless or casual lies. These kinds of people were lying about things they knew had to be covered up because they were crimes. It was their hope that the locksteppping Republicans would provide enough cover that they would be able to get away with the lies. For a long while it must have seemed like it was working. Then Trump panicked and fired Comey and that set the kettle to boil.

I, sincerely hope that they are not attempting to set this case up as some sort of template for anything to do with the Mueller report. As you can see, if you frequent this blog, our regular US news outlets give slap dash coverage of critical issues as they choose. This leaves many voters out of the loop and easy prey for political hoaxes like the "Monkey Business" boat hoax. I'm pretty sure that more foreigners know what that was about, even while most Americans will have to Google for it. SMH.

Hahaha, just as we thought, the Republicans lunge forward to confirm that they are happy with the white house lying to Congress, they are quite satisfied with candidates seeking help from America's sworn enemies, in the effort to win the election. They can't get enough of a President using his office to put together multimillion dollar deals for himself, at the expense of American foreign policy and national interest.  From corruption to collusion to possible criminal conspiracy and unethical and disgusting behavior Republicans are very happy with it all. 



But, be honest ethical and patriotic and they will demand that you resign and leave office. Boy, are these the kinds of people Americans really want to hold high office?  I have to ask because we have quite a few of just such people leading the country.

The last five minutes or so are priceless as Chmn Schiff makes the Republicans squirm as he recounts the insane list of mendacity and lack of ethics and reasoning that they excused, that led us to this point. Enjoy.

The title of the Ken Starr report should have been "Sound and Fury Signifying Nothing"! Years of Republican pushed investigations at a cost of 50 million dollars, uncover a consensual blow job. We all knew how jealous that made the Republicans who need either massive amounts of money or a supply of weapons to get laid Hahaha

Trump took a bogus victory lap, hahaha we all know how that plays out. It will be extremely demoralizing, when there is even a hint that it might have to be retracted. It probably won't shake his strongest supporters but, those biting their nails over"repeal and replace", will have yet another reason to worry that Trump may not be prepared to replace anything anytime soon.

Documents Show Trump Practice Of Misrepresenting His Wealth | Rachel Mad...

I watched a few minutes of Trump's speech yesterday, long enough to note that they were keeping the camera view cropped so tightly you could not see how many or few there were in attendance. That usually means that it's nowhere near a "sell out" crowd. But they keep doing it because they are sure the audience is too stupid to ever catch on to this kind of trickery, no matter how many decades they've seen it. LOL



In any event, they were probably pumping up the sounds with "canned" applauding laughter and cheers. Even so it did not sound very robust. The crowd did follow their applause and other prompts faithfully,  but their hearts didn't seem to be very much in it. Could they possibly be worried about "repeal and replace"?   I mean that by now they should realize that not all Republicans are in favor of repealing the ACA, and there's no sign of anything having been crafted to replace it. Nor does Mr. Trump,who doesn't read much, appear to be aware of how heavily his base relies on the ACA.



Perhaps they have somehow gained a clue that,in these contentious times and without both houses in their hands, getting a bill to replace through Congress would be fraught with difficult, to say the least. Thus, to have any chance at quick passage, a bill should have been being debated some time ago, but there is nothing. So if their tempered applause means they have some trepidation about whether :replace" will be done in a timely fashion, then good on them!

Perhaps the utility of the bombastic self aggrandizing braggidcio is passed its prime. Hahaha.

Oh no... Now Trump has opened a politics to prison pipeline!  Did anyone besides me find it unsurprising that Popadopalous found the prison so full of doctors and lawyers who were Trump supporters?  What does that mean? Nor is it anything to be bragging about. "Hey, the rest of the convicts were were doctors and lawyers who supported Trump, they loved me!"
Shouldn't you be keeping that kind of thing secret? But then, Trump supporters aren't known for being able to think clearly.

Clearly this report is fueling too much controversy to be allowed to be kept secret. If things are allowed to end with large questions unanswered regaining full faith and credit of the people will hardly be possible. Unlike "normal" prosecutions , this one requires different rules be followed. You can't get involved in national politics and expect the same levels of privacy that an ordinary person would have.

This was not a normal investigation where the targets are entitled to secrecy if they are not to be charged. This is an investigation of national scope and importance where all the people who could have been accused are known, as well as what they could have been charged with but were not.  It is of paramount importance that the nation be able to have faith in this report. Full disclosure, is the only way to make that happen. After all, why did they commit perjury to conceal matters that they thought or knew to be perfectly harmless and legal?

Whenever the person being investigated has control of the participants, it is unsurprising that no conclusions can be reached despite a plethora of damning evidence. Or perhaps the truth isn't the truth and there are alternative facts. I really would hate to live in a world like that, but hey, it seems there are many people who don't really care about facts and truth just as long as they get their way.  Unfortunately that would mean that, once again, everyone's life would depend on what people were thinking about them.  Oh yes, in order to be sure you were worth keeping alive, and not tortured to death, you would have to be carefully monitored. Bon Appetite.
