They found no influence the same way the Senate found no evidence.

This is an impeachable offense. So. Add it to the list.

Trump is setting a record for criminal activity that will never be approached by another American president in our lifetimes.

See Trump did learn his lesson from being impeached.

"the assertion of a 'presidential communications privilege.'"

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but that doesn't apply if the actions were illegal.

The Pentagon's inspector general "could not definitively determine" whether the White House influenced the procurement process for a major cloud computing contract because senior Defense Department officials were barred from answering questions on the subject during interviews, according to a 313-page report released on Wednesday.


They're just following the Impeachment Playbook.

Move along now...

It applies to whatever Trump wants as long as McConnell and Barr have his back.

Mostly because we won't have another American president in our lifetimes.  The union is going to dissolve soon.

I really hope you're correct. Otherwise, this stuff is really just laying the framework

Swear to god I better not hear "we need to move past", or "the country needs to heal" if by some chance Biden wins. I want these mother farkers to pay for these crimes. I want every supporter to watch as their tower of Babel is dismantled brick by muddy brick. I want them to suffer for this.

Biden better hurt these farking pigs.

If only drug tests worked this way.

"Subject arrived smelling of rum and smoking a joint.  He then refused to provide a sample, so we had no choice than to declare him 100% drug free."

Now, THEREFORE, I, Donald J Trump, President of the United States, pursuant to the pardon power conferred upon me by Article II, Section 2, of the Constitution, have granted and by these presents do grant a full, free, and absolute pardon unto all members of the Republican Party and my Administration for all offenses against the United States which they committed or may have committed or taken part in during the period from January 20, 1969 through January 19th, 2021

Now let the healing begin :D

Please don't challenge the Russpublicans to do more crimes.

So in the end we are all awarded a 'black eye' for it?

Sigh. No one gets my puns or allusions anyway. Or I've gone into 'dad joke' realm.

See, Republicans don't mind it when the government picks winners and losers in the free market.

Just as long as they get to pick them.

I'm sure there were shenanigans, but it's Amazon so I don't really care.

The country does need to heal, and that healing starts by cutting open the wound and scraping out all the dead, infected material that's been building up since the last time we decided the country needed to heal and just left it alone.

That's what everyone thought when you elected Dubya, and yet here we are.

I can understand this because Amazon is suing the government and the IG wants to question people who may be called to testify in a pending civil case and perhaps may have knowledge of and/or have committed a crime. This presents complicated legal issues for those being questioned.

The curse filter on this website is interesting.  It only rearranged the first four letters, but it also added a space to turn it into a Star Wars joke which is kind of cool.

Being barred by the "Pentagon's attorneys" is not valid in an IG investigation, unless the Pentagon's attorneys advised those being interviewed that they are going to be exposed to liability (criminal and civil) if they talk.  That's it.  They can't claim any "oh proprietary procurement discussions" or "official confidential communications" because they only thing confidential is the details of the bids from the competitors.

So, yeah, we have criminal activity going on, and the Pentagon officials beholden to Trump know it.
