It's happening. And it's nothing. I'm just here for the meltdown.

Republicans covering for Republicans.
 
2019-03-24 03:59:21 PM  
F$ck it so much.
 
2019-03-24 03:59:23 PM  
Well, that's it. Now I'm seriously on the fence about voting for Donald Trump.
 
2019-03-24 03:59:32 PM  
not much is happening, according to bob barr.

read that sentence as many times as you need to.
 
2019-03-24 03:59:40 PM  
As far as obstruction: Barr's opinion, that's all.
 
2019-03-24 03:59:41 PM  
Summary. We're getting screwed.
 
2019-03-24 04:00:22 PM  
Good choice, Admin

Summary: Trump wriggles free of any real consequences
 
2019-03-24 04:00:40 PM  
You dropped the ball Mueller
 
2019-03-24 04:00:40 PM  
F*ck. I think Trump just won re-election.
 
2019-03-24 04:00:44 PM  
Time to getvthe full report.
 
2019-03-24 04:00:51 PM  
Isnt this just the bar report about the Mueller report?

Nice. Greenlight the wrong headline and ignore the 100+ comment thread
 
2019-03-24 04:01:02 PM  
The responses are going to be interesting. Can't look away.
 
2019-03-24 04:01:04 PM  
Well, that was disappointing. I'd love to hear how what we already know about the Trump Tower meeting wasn't coordination with Russia by members of the campaign.

Donald_McRonald: Summary: Trump wriggles free of any real consequences


Because that's how Bob Barr personally feels about it. The system works.

Bovine Diarrhea Virus: It's happening. And it's nothing. I'm just here for the meltdown.


Presidents obstructing justice is OK if it makes Libs mad.
 
2019-03-24 04:01:18 PM  
So there would be no issue in releasing the full report...
 
2019-03-24 04:01:23 PM  
Summary: No collusion.  Obstruction of justice? We'll leave it up to the Supreme Court that Trump has stacked in his favor.
 
2019-03-24 04:01:24 PM  
Barr won't press this. There needs to be a full release of the report and let the people decide
 
2019-03-24 04:01:24 PM  
I wasn't optimistic about this anyway. I'm just here to laugh at the MAGAts who think this means Dolt45 isn't a criminal.
 
2019-03-24 04:01:26 PM  
I has a sad
 
2019-03-24 04:01:33 PM  
NO CONCLUSION NO CONCLUSION
 
2019-03-24 04:01:34 PM  
So the question must be asked: what now?

We gonna continue to live under this regime?
 
2019-03-24 04:01:36 PM  
Scene: Mueller is called before the House Judiciary Committee to explain his report.

Q:  Mr. Mueller, I've looked over your report and am struct by how little editorializing we find in the report. Would you call that a fair characterization?

A: Yes

Q: Was that your choice?

A: Yes

Q: Why

A: My role was to uncover facts, not to comment on them. Additionally, when I uncovered crimes I could prosecute, I pursued those prosecutions.

Q: In the section devoted to the investigation of Obstruction of Justice, you list a large number of actions of the President that seem like Obstruction of Justice to me [ Mueller breaks poker face to raise his eyebrows ]Now there weren't many surprises in there, many tweets, the interactions with Mr. Comey that he has testified to, and the Lester Holt interview where President Trump appeared to confess to firing Comey to end the Russia investigation.

So why didn't you charge the President with Obstruction of Justice?

A: Long standing DOJ policy says we don't indict a sitting President.

Q: But doesn't all that --- the confession, the tweets harassing AG Sessions and Deputy AG Rosenstein, the whole DOJ, your team, and the FBI ---  doesn't that rise to the level of Obstruction of Justice?

A: That's not my call.

Q: What do you mean?

A: All those things are public information. They've been public information. He confessed on TV. He tweeted most of his actions. You were aware of his private interactions with Director Comey. It isn't up to the Special Counsel to indict a sitting President. It's up to the House of Representatives to Impeach the Treasonous Shait Gibbon, and the Senate to Convict his traitorous orange-tinted-ass and free the country from this nightmare.

Do your farking jobs.

Q: I yield the remainder of my time

Shadow Blasko: Isnt this just the bar report about the Mueller report?

Nice. Greenlight the wrong headline and ignore the 100+ comment thread


This was the right one.

It included no spin by media outlets.

FTFR: "executed nearly 500 search warrants"

Woah.

mikaloyd: You dropped the ball Mueller


I see Barr's signature on that - not Mueller's.
 
2019-03-24 04:01:49 PM  
My summary:

- AG is sitting on the report, won't release it today, won't say when he will
- no sealed indictments
- quote from the report "The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities"
- obstruction of justice, Special Counsel therefore did not draw a conclusion - one way or the other - as to whether the examined conduct constituted obstruction
- Special Counsel's decision...leaves it to the AG to determine whether the conduct described in the report constitutes a crime
- DAG Rosenstein and I (Barr) have concluded that the evidence developed during the Special Counsel's investigation is not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense

Hey see no conspiracy . That's why none of my campaign workers, managers, or friends plead guilty or are facing changes !!!!!!Total exoneration !

How insufferable will Donnie and his sycophants be now?:

No exoneration. LOL! So the nothing burger is full of mystery meat.

Coming this fall from a publisher near you: "If I Did It," by Dumbold Trump.
 
2019-03-24 04:01:57 PM  

Thank You Black Jesus!: not much is happening, according to bob barr.

read that sentence as many times as you need to.


Yep, exactly this.   Barr's gonna bend over for Trump.    We need the full report for the truth.

NeoCortex42: Well, that was disappointing. I'd love to hear how what we already know about the Trump Tower meeting wasn't coordination with Russia by members of the campaign.


Or how the Lester Holt interview didn't admit to obstruction but whatever. IOKIYAR.
 
2019-03-24 04:02:25 PM  
Well, sounds like a big fight a setting up between Congress and Barr to release the full report.
 
2019-03-24 04:02:49 PM  
Basic gist here:

No conspiracy or coordination with Russia to influence the election.
No actions constituting obstruction.

Badmoodman: How insufferable will Donnie and his sycophants be now?:

[img.fark.net image 728x232]


Except it didn't exonerate him at all.
 
2019-03-24 04:02:55 PM  
The fix is in. If you read the last 3 paragraphs:  Barr will be slow walking releasing the rest of this, probably as a way insulate herr Drumpf.

He needs to "evaluate" my ass.  He needs do the bidding of his capo is the more likely explanation.

Translation: "Voters, it's your own damn fault"

/Hard to believe how so divisive the country has gotten and it still is. Is all of that driven by hate?
 
2019-03-24 04:02:56 PM  
It's not happening.
 
2019-03-24 04:03:04 PM  
Key part comes near the end. The special counsel (Mueller) didn't decide if Trump obstructed justice. Rather, Barr and Rosenstein concluded that the things Trump did didn't meet sufficient criteria to convict him.

This very likely includes some gymnastic reasoning that others will agree with. However, it will now be much much easier for Senate GOP members to hide behind their reasoning.

4 pages. You couldn't list the indictments that have been made in 4 pages.

/something rotten in the state of Denmark
