(Huffington Post)   Corey Lewandowski calls for an immediate end of the special counsel investigation into Trump's Russia ties, saying, "there's no collusion. There's no obstruction." Well, that's good enough for me   ( huffingtonpost.com) divider line

"This is amazing ― David Brooks is not a Trump supporter, he's truly a Trump hater and if you have someone as liberal as him from the failing New York Times coming on and saying [the investigation my not be justified], the people in Washington should understand this," Lewandowski said.

These people are incapable of original thought.

"Until there is an investigation, I can not be proven guilty.
Furthermore, I am innocent until proven guilty.
And as I am now demonstrably innocent, there is no need for an investigation."
Try this excuse yourself sometime, and see how it works.

Even if what Lewandowski says is true, that's not a reason to end the investigation.  The DOJ described Mueller's appointment as follows:

Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein today announced the appointment of former Department of Justice official and FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III to serve as Special Counsel to oversee the previously-confirmed FBI investigation of Russian government efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election and related matters.

It's not just about "collusion," which may or may not have happened.  The scope of the investigation includes the underlying Russian efforts to influence the election, which (a) most certainly did happen, and (b) most certainly involved criminal conduct.

(I wonder why no one in Trumpland seems to care about the Russian interference, and they all want to shut down the investigation.   Hmmm.)

I call for Corey Lewandowski to be tarred and feathered. I also call for trump to resign. While I'm at it, world peace as well.

Not really what David Brooks said:

On Friday's "PBS NewsHour," New York Timescolumnist David Brooks stated that while "the case is still out" on whether there are ties between Russia and the Trump campaign, the Trump administration does have "high levels of incompetence."
He stated, "We have a tendency to get a little overhyped to some of the Trump scandals. We go to outrage level 11 at every moment. And I think the Russia - the case is still out how serious it is, whether there's actual ties between Russia and the Trump campaign, which I think is the core of it, where Paul Manafort came from, whether there was any money laundering, and things like that. There's a lot we don't know. And I'm trying to not prejudge it."
Brooks continued, "What we do know is, there's high levels of incompetence. And we have a president who tweeted this wiretapping tweet, which was completely wrong. That's incompetence. We have this young man in the National Security Agency who the - who his boss tried to get rid of, but was preserved by Steve Bannon, who was involved in giving information to Nunes - Chairman [Devin] Nunes (R-CA). We have Nunes himself, who is behaving incompetently. Forget he's too close to the Trump campaign. There's a way to conduct an investigation. And it's not to cancel hearings willy-nilly. It's not to go brief the guy you're supposed to be investigating. It's not to create a civil war within your own committee. And so, we have just levels and levels and levels of just incompetence, of people who just do not know how to play this game. And when that happens, you never know what's going to happen next. And so I don't know if it's a scandal in the class of the Watergate scandal, but it's not inspiring to see what we've been seeing."
 
2017-06-21 08:57:02 PM  
"The investigation will turn up nothing so pack your bags and go home because there definitely isn't anything to see here."

Well, that settles it. Should save a tonne of money in the future when this sets new legal president precedent.
 
2017-06-21 08:57:07 PM  
I don't farking get it.

Just because the public-at-large doesn't have the evidence in hand, that doesn't mean that the FBI/Mueller/etc. doesn't either.

Why is this so difficult to understand?

If someone accused me right now of colluding with the Russians, I would be an open book and would want their investigation to continue as quickly and unfettered as possible so that I could be quickly cleared of any wrong-doing.

Trump isn't doing that, for some reason...

El_Perro: (I wonder why no one in Trumpland seems to care about the Russian interference, and they all want to shut down the investigation. Hmmm.)


Part of it is because Trump doesn't want confirmation of it to undercut his "landslide victory."

The other part is because Republicans are amoral scum.  They'd ally with ISIS if they promised only to attack liberals.

Bill the unknowing: "Hammond hates inspections - they slow everything down...." But nothing bad happened there, either.....I agree. Take your time - check me out from stem to stern. I'll be busy MAGAing, in the meantime.

If nothing happened, why the worry about the investigation? Nothing will come up so let Mueller do his thing and it will pass. After all, Obama never tried to stop the Benghazi investigations and Clinton was cleared of wrongdoing so if Trump and his associates are the same they will end up like Clinton: Not in jail and making millions off of speeches and book deals.

So it's not impossible that he could have been aware of or involved in any collusion going on.

But Clinton asked Loretta Lynch to refer to the email investigation as a 'matter' instead of an investigation, therefore not only are both sides bad, but the Democrats are obviously worse. I'm sure, if Obama had done the sensible thing and just fired the people investigating him and Hillary, the GOP wouldn't have flown into a frothing, screeching rage.
 
2017-06-21 09:28:42 PM  
How many of these Republicans that are now saying, "There's nothing to see here; move on," welcomed the 7 Congressional investigations into Benghazi by saying, "We just want to get to the bottom of it. What's wrong with that?"

None of us here on the sidelines know anything. What's more, we can't know anything at this stage.

That leaves us with expectations. You obviously expect the whole administration to come out smelling like a rose. I expect Trump will be found to be an ignorant, too easily manipulable doofus when it comes to Russian interference/improper handling of intelligence/etc. but personally culpable of lots financial shenanigans, but some of his underlings/associates/appointees will hang (in a figurative sense) for the Russia-trying-to-control-elections shiat.

That being said, that is why they are trying to besmirch Robert Mueller's reputation right now. They are going to try to paint him as an out of control zealot (after previously praising what a great and fair choice he was.)

I notice that you had to delete my "Of course, that just affects us poor slobs, not the rich, well connected or high profile." before replying, which tends to make one believe your point is less than honest.

I agree. Despite their screaming about leaks (mostly by themselves talking about "that farking meeting I need to attend"), we've seen very little classified info, which is a good thing as long as the reps are attending the classified sessions.

In Sessions' testimony, he was asked a list of names of who had met with Kislyak. The yeses he replied with "I don't recall" and the no or don't know, he replied "I don't know." Lewandowski was an I don't recall. Lewandowski is f#cking involved.

The one problem all the conspirators have:

If there was, ipso facto, no treasonous conspiracy to betray America's democracy, then no evidence at all would be being found.

And we are supposed to believe that there is not one single Trumper anywhere in either Congressional committee, in the FBI, CIA, NSA, DIA, or on Mueller's team that would leak this? Riiiight.
