Who are the "you guys" in your comment? If there aren't Republicans who want impeachment after reading the report, we truly are in an era of party over country; whatever it takes to "win".

You’re proud he is your leader after reading what he did in the report?

So now that you’ve had a chance to see what is actually in Mueller’s report what are your thoughts on Trump?

You’d rather stick it to the Libs than to admit that Trump is a immoral President who was fully aware of the Russian interference in the election and not only did nothing to stop it but stood in front of the world and praised Russia while undermining the US?

To quote a once-famous scholar of the forum, you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.

But also:

I went out on the street today
The Canadian Dream was as far away as it's ever been
As it's ever been
I went out on the street today
The Canadian Dream was as far away as it's ever been
As it's ever been
S.O.C.I.A.L.I.S.M. is here to stay
S.O.C.I.A.L.I.S.M. is the only way
Frozen land, frozen minds
Frozen hands and frozen time
'Cause everything moves real slow when it's forty below
Everything moves real slow when it's forty below
Yeah, everything moves real slow when it's forty below
When it's forty below
S.O.C.I.A.L.I.S.M. is here to stay
S.O.C.I.A.L.I.S.M. is the only way
'Cause everything moves real slow when it's forty below
Everything moves…

No obstruction. Every time Trump ordered his staff to do an illegal act of obstruction, they wouldn't do it. Thank goodness for people who believe in the rule of law.

No collusion. Don Jr. and Mannafort sure tried to collude, but they couldn't pull it off. Thank goodness for general incompetence.

Nothing to see here. Move along.

I’ve said all along that Trump is Mr. Magooing his way through the Presidency. If people didn’t put girders in front of him he’d walk off a building. Too bad so many people are willing to lay down girders.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

This sounds very innocent:

"Lewandowski and Dearborn did not deliver the President' s message to Sessions that he
should confine the Russia investigation to future election meddling only."

I wonder what the threshold will be for impeachment in the future. It's certainly changed quite a bit in the past few decades.

It was made as clear as possible given Department of Justice guidelines on what can and can't be said about people who are not indicted.

There's a difference between "insufficient evidence to indict" and "policy that prohibits indicting a president".

The report doesn't say insufficient evidence to indict (with respect to obstruction). The report explicitly states that, because of the DOJ's policy that the President can not be indicted, the Special Counsel would not make a traditional prosecutorial judgment. It also states that the facts do not exonerate the President. That is as much of a roadmap as the Special Counsel could possibly lay out.

Not only did nothing but still denies it and is doing nothing to this day.

"Third, we considered whether to evaluate the conduct we investigated under the Justice
Manual standards governing prosecution and declination decisions, but we determined not to apply
an approach that could potentially result in a judgment that the President committed crimes."

That seems pretty clear.

Just imagine what's going on now that he has nothing but Yes men.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Besides keeping his insanity in check (see the days after Barr's summary), Congress will have more investigative power with impeachment to uncover other crimes. Plus there is no way of knowing what could be uncovered that may switch some Republicans to vote for impeachment (yes, very unlikely). But ultimately, it'll make trump & co scared shitless, feeling less invulnerable, which is a major plus.

Because we don't need more shit like this...


Also, as if it wasn't clear before, Mueller clearly wanted the House to impeach...

Agreed. This is just as shameful and unacceptable as DVD P calling AOC a whore. But I don't think anything happened to DVD P for his comment, so nothing will happen to Why So Blu? either. This is just the state of commentary on the political forum now.

I agree with the misogyny, but looks-shaming? People have been making fun of Trump's looks since forever, and no one bats an eye. Is that OK because he's a man?

3) Wasn’t Mueller “honorable” to Trump just a few weeks ago?

I'm pretty sure someone in his administration tackled him after the second tweet and hasn't returned the phone.

I'm betting the level of treachery that has gone on since the inauguration, after he and Kushner and Bannon and others have had access to TS/CI matters, is several defcon levels worse.

Not that we're likely to get detailed verification about any of it anytime soon, but this report should stimulate people's imagination in that direction. It would be far from whole cloth fantasy at this point.
If you don't have detailed information, what exactly are you talking about other than more conspiracy theories based on assumptions where no facts are to be found. You say the treachery is so bad. Ok, so demonstrate where it was applied.
