Robert Mueller nearly ready to present findings on collusion, obstruction: Report

ㅤ"Bloomberg reported that Mr. Mueller’s findings won’t be concluded until after the midterms, which could be a critical time for shaking up the Justice Department."

ㅤô¿ô …Apparently the investigation hasn’t uncovered anything so important that voters need to know about it. I think that means Mueller has nothing.

ㅤ"The New York Times reported that attorneys Jay Sekulow and Rudy Giuliani did not completely reject an interview, but instead countered Mueller’s offer with another one of their own. The lawyers did not comment on the specifics of their proposal, but sources told the newspaper that it rules out potential questions about obstruction of justice."

Giuliani to Mueller: 'Put up or shut up'

ㅤ”‘We believe that the [Mueller] investigation should be brought to a close,’ Giuliani told reporters. ‘We think they’re at the end of it. They should render their report.’
ㅤ’I mean, I guess if we were playing poker, we’d say ‘put up or shut up,’ ‘ he continued. ‘What do you got?'”

ㅤô¿ô …The President finally hired himself a hit man.ㅤ

ㅤ"Several current and former U.S. officials said Mueller is adding prosecutors from U.S. attorney’s offices and the Justice Department headquarters, Bloomberg reported Thursday.
ㅤOfficials added that this could be a sign that Mueller is prepared to step away from the probe and leave it in the hands of a larger team of prosecutors, officials said."

ㅤô¿ô …I’m hearing that the investigation is being put on the DOJ’s back burner. Not "moving forward."ㅤ

ㅤô¿ô …Obviously a stunt. No federal judge, liberal or otherwise, would dare make a ruling that could compromise a special counsel investigation.

Senate Judiciary Committee drafts bill to protect Robert Mueller from Donald Trump firing

SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE DRAFTS BILL TO PROTECT ROBERT MUELLER FROM DONALD TRUMP FIRINGp22article212020wp.png

ㅤ”Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has flatly ruled out bringing the bill to the floor even if it clears the committee.
ㅤDemocrats said they hope a strong committee vote will persuade the Kentucky Republican to change his mind.
ㅤEven then, it would have to clear the House, and after that Mr. Trump would likely veto the legislation. There’s little chance of getting a two-thirds vote in both chambers to overturn a veto.”

ㅤô¿ô …In other words, rather than take another shot at healthcare, build on the success of tax reform or just do nothing and allow the GOP to focus on campaigning, Grassley and Alexander want to join the Democrats and treat the people to yet another pointless circus.
ㅤThen again, Grassley is pissed about the tariffs and Alexander has been shut out of the President’s inner circle, so there could be an attempt at revenge happening here. McConnell is correct to call his fellow Republicans on their BS.

Robert Mueller tells Trump lawyers president not criminal target: report

ROBERT MUELLER TELLS TRUMP LAWYERS PRESIDENT NOT CRIMINAL TARGET: REPORTp03article220914wp.png

ㅤ”Citing ‘three people familiar with the discussions,’ The Washington Post reported Tuesday evening that Mr. Mueller told the President’s attorneys that his actions are a ‘subject’ of the investigation. But the special counsel told them he does not think there is enough evidence to bring charges.
ㅤThe statements were made during an early March discussion on whether Mr. Trump will agree to an interview, the Post reported.
ㅤIn those negotiations, Mr. Mueller reiterated that he wanted to speak with the President on obstruction of justice issues ‘to understand whether he had any corrupt intent to thwart the Russia investigation and to complete this portion of his probe,’ the Post wrote.
ㅤThose mixed signals — saying both that Mr. Trump is not a target and trying to coax him into an interview — produced a split within the Trump legal team, the Post reported.”

Trump lawyers hand over documents to Robert Mueller: report

TRUMP LAWYERS HAND OVER DOCUMENTS TO ROBERT MUELLER: REPORTp19article180130wp.jpg

ㅤ”According to the Washington Post, President Trump, also a man not lacking in self-confidence, has told aides he is ‘champing at the bit’ for a chance to testify. His attorneys fear that Mr. Trump may unintentionally or carelessly perjure himself. This would create a crime or grounds for impeachment even if there is no underlying crime to lie about — a prosecutorial strategy known as the ‘perjury trap.'”

ㅤô¿ô …No way. The Trump admin is right about Graham. He may have experience with Clinton’s impeachment. But he is out-of-touch with current doubt about Mueller’s objectivity. The GOP has justifiable reason to vote against impeachment if it is based solely on the special counsel investigation.

Gates: Mueller could elate some people and anger some people with findings

p27172656.jpg
Pictured: Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates

ㅤô¿ô …I doubt Mueller will be voicing his personal beliefs, which is going to surprise everyone.
ㅤMueller is simply determining if and by whom any crimes may have committed, whether the evidence warrants indictment, and whether the indictment has a chance of leading to a conviction.
ㅤIf an action by an individual results in a “no” answer to any of these criteria, Mueller won’t be voicing any conclusions about the action.

ㅤAs of May 2017, Strzok had not been persuaded that the investigation would be a major case, as it has been portrayed in the press. According to the source close to Strzok, he did not see evidence that the upper echelons of Trumpworld had committed a crime.”
