Mueller and Obstruction of Justice

by Daniel John Sobieski

{ } ~ The irony was that Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn was charged with and plead guilty to making false statements to the FBI… By his own standards Robert Mueller was guilty of making “false statements” in his parting gift to Democrat impeachment seekers. He was not, however, under legal oath, which is maybe why Democrats did not want him to be questioned by Congress in a hearing beforehand. Mueller has had to walk back his lie about Office of Legal Counsel policy keeping him from indicting a sitting president. In his alleged “farewell” address, former Special Counsel Mueller managed to channel former FBI Director scumbag-James Comey. Where is it written that former FBI directors get to recite a litany of possible charges against someone they are not going to charge? If, as Mueller had said, you could indict a sitting President, and that is why he was not indicted, then why did he spend some $40 million the past two years pursuing an indictment? Just what happened to the presumption of innocence? Mueller told AG Barr that it was not DOJ policy on not indicting sitting presidents that guided his decisions. Then, knowing the lamestream media would run with his lie, said the opposite. Elizabeth Vaughan noted at Red State: In his statement this morning, Robert Mueller said “if we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.” He also said that, because of Office of Legal Counsel guidance, his team did not have the option of charging a sitting president with a crime. This is the opposite of what he told Attorney General William Barr and several other DOJ officials at a meeting which took place on March 5th. Barr was asked about why Mueller had failed to come to a conclusion on the question of obstruction of justice during his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on May 1st. He said, “We were frankly surprised that they were not going to reach a decision on obstruction and we asked them a lot about the reasoning behind this. Mueller stated three times to us in that meeting, in response to our questioning, that he emphatically was not saying that but for the OLC opinion he would have found obstruction.” Barr made a similar remark at the press conference he held prior to the public release of the redacted Mueller Report. He told reporters, “We specifically asked him about the OLC opinion and whether or not he was taking a position that he would have found a crime but for the existence of the OLC opinion. And he made it very clear several times that was not his position.”…


Ex-Federal Prosecutor Shreds Mueller for ‘Absolutely Reprehensible’ Comments

by Ben Marquis

{ } ~ Special counsel Robert Mueller unexpectedly delivered a public statement with regard to the findings of his two-year investigation into alleged Russian interference and possible collusion… with then-candidate Donald Trump’s campaign in 2016. Nothing new or of substance was offered up by Mueller in the Wednesday news conference, save for his not-so-subtle insinuation that Trump, as president, was guilty of criminal obstruction of justice — and an equally unsubtle suggestion that Democrats in Congress should proceed with impeachment efforts. But outside of impeachment-obsessed Democrats and media figures, Mueller’s commentary didn’t sit particularly well with a lot of people, especially a former federal prosecutor named Fred Tecce, who decried Mueller’s statement as “absolutely reprehensible” in an interview with Fox Business anchor Neil Cavuto on Wednesday afternoon. Tecce didn’t hold back. “Quite frankly, I find Mr. Mueller’s comments to be absolutely reprehensible, and the part that bothers me the most is that the bedrock of our system of justice is that people are presumed innocent unless proven otherwise by a — beyond a reasonable doubt,” he said.“He could have said — and this the part I have a problem with — his report could have said that our investigation has revealed probable cause to believe that the president committed obstruction of justice,” he continued. “He could have made that report and made that findings available to the attorney general. He did not.” Tecce explained how it was “not his place” for Mueller — or any other prosecutor, for that matter — to attempt to “exonerate the president” or any other subject of an investigation. Rather, it is the job of a prosecutor solely to determine whether there is sufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution, nothing more and nothing less…



Anti-Trump Traitors Rip Blindfold Off Lady Justice

by Lloyd Marcus

{ } ~ What anti-American zealots in government and media are doing to president Trump is unprecedented and should scare the heck out of every American… They have created a parallel universe void of truth and reality. In the midst of Trump actually making America great again, millions of Americans believe Trump is a Russian agent, mentally ill, and leading America to destruction. Trump brought back jobs that scumbag/liar-nObama decreed were gone forever. Black, Hispanic, and female unemployment are at historic lows. Trump pulled us out of bad deals with foreign governments. Thanks to Trump eliminating absurd regulations and oppressive taxes, businesses are coming home to America building factories. The average American wage is $27 per hour. Americans are enjoying an economic boom. All this incredible good news is for the most part being hidden from Americans. Instead, Democrats, fake news media, Hollywood, and social media flood the airwaves with their lie that Trump is horrible for America. They claim he obstructed justice in the Mueller investigation. Hogwash! The truth is the Mueller so-called investigation was really an illegal witch-hunt, a silent coup undermining Trump’s presidency; to reverse the 2016 presidential election. Mueller’s investigation was based solely on the Steele Dossier, a bogus document written in 2016 and paid for by scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton. scumbag/liar-Hillary’s despicable fake document claimed that Trump paid prostitutes to urinate on a hotel bed slept in by scumbag/liar-nObama. Mueller and the 19 scumbag/liar-Hillary lawyers he hired knew the document was filled with lies. And yet, they used it to illegally obtain warrants to harass the Trump administration for three years. Trump knew the Mueller investigation was a scam to destroy his presidency. Still, Trump did not exercise his authority to fire Mueller. Trump turned over a million documents to Mueller’s evil minions. Still, fake news media is helping Democrats to sell their obvious lie that Trump is engaged in a cover-up. Trump pushed back against his treasonous conspirators by publicly calling them out on their lies and behind-the-scenes illegal dirty tricks. This enraged them. Republicans usually allow Democrats and fake news media to spread lies about Republicans and policies beneficial for We the people. Trump is a different breed of Republican, one who stands up for himself. This has caused anti-American zealots Democrats, fake news media, Hollywood and deep state Republicans to declare Trump insane…


‘Bare minimum’: Britain decides no palace stay or parliamentary speech for Trump in low-key state visit

by Rob Crilly

{ } ~ Opening his speech to British parliamentarians in 2011, President Barack scumbag/liar-nObama said, “I have known few greater honors than the opportunity to address the Mother of Parliaments at Westminster Hall.”… It is an honor that will not be extended to President Trump next week during his first state visit to Britain, one of a number of differences from the trips made by his predecessors. British and American officials have played down concerns about protests and insist that Trump is being afforded every bit of the usual hospitality — from dinner with the queen to bilateral talks with Theresa May, the prime minister. But royal watchers said the Trumps will be missing out on many of the trappings of a state visit, such as staying at Buckingham Palace. “Not being invited to speak before Parliament is testament to the fact they know he is going to be rude and there’s going to be massive protests,” said Marlene Koenig, an author and expert on British and European royalty. “They are doing the bare minimum of what they would do for a state visit of a major ally.” Rather than staying with the Queen, Trump will be put up at Winfield House, residence of Woody Johnson, the United States ambassador to the Court of St James’s. Johnson, the owner of the New York Jets, was appointed by Trump. Winfield House, a neo-Georgian manion in Regent’s Park, has the advantage of being set in 12 acres of grounds, safely away from demonstrators…


scumbag liar-Nadler Just Openly Admitted the Truth on Impeachment: It’s ‘a Political Act’

by C. Douglas Golden

{ } ~ When it comes to the Trump impeachment drumbeat, few lawmakers have been as insistent and transparent as House Judiciary Committee Chairman scumbag liar-Jerrold Nadler… The New York representative was at it again Friday, although he may have let on a bit too much in his remarks during a radio interview. scumbag liar-Nadler was making an appearance on WNYC, Gotham’s NPR outlet, when he said there “certainly is” justification for impeaching President Donald Trump. However, his definition of impeachment — and what he thinks the role of congressional investigations are — may not resemble yours. “Impeachment is a political act, and you cannot impeach a president if the American people will not support it,” he said, according to Politico. “The American people right now do not support it because they do not know the story. They don’t know the facts. We have to get the facts out. We have to hold a series of hearings, we have to hold the investigations.” Now, let’s look at the assumptions there. The first is that impeachment is ostensibly a political decision, not a legal one.There might be legal language behind it — Trump lied! Trump obstructed justice! What about Michael Cohen and that non-disclosure agreement with Stormy Daniels? — but the decision for or against impeachment is now about how it would affect the Democrats’ chances in 2020 and beyond, not anything the president may or may not have done. And it’s been that way long before special counsel Robert Mueller released his report, mind you — you just heard it on the fringes…


The True Life Story Hollywood Won’t Tell

Nate Jackson: Louisiana Democrat Gov. John Bel Edwards signed the nation’s latest pro-life bill Thursday. Like other measures around the country, the bill, authored by Democrat Sen. John Milkovich of Shreveport, bans abortion once a baby’s heartbeat can be detected, which usually happens at about six weeks’ gestation. Beyond the bipartisan nature of Louisiana’s effort to protect life, however, is Edwards’ incredible personal pro-life story.

Edwards and his wife Donna faced an excruciating choice 28 years ago. CatholicPhilly reported in 2016, “Doctors informed the couple their baby would have spina bifida and strongly advised an abortion, to the point of taking Donna to see a clinic that treated spina bifida children, some seriously impaired and others less so. At the time there was no way to determine what effects it would have on a particular child.”

Donna said, “I was devastated — but, John Bel never flinched. He said, ‘No, no; we’re going to love this baby no matter what.’ And, at that moment, I watched the boy I fell in love with become the man I’m still in love with today.”

“It was our belief that God has a purpose in everything and we would have this child,” Edwards added. “I credit Donna. She is a very courageous person. … I cannot imagine what our life would be without [our daughter].”

That is exactly the kind of engaging, emotional story of love and sacrifice that would make for a fantastic Hollywood movie.

Unfortunately, Hollywood hypocrites are too busy attacking Georgia for its pro-life legislation. Georgia has become a hub for filming movies and TV shows, with productions made there by industry titans like Disney (“Avengers: Endgame”) and Netflix (“Stranger Things”). But, along with those two companies, WarnerMedia, CBS, Showtime, NBCUniversal, AMC Networks, Sony Pictures, STX, and Viacom are all now threatening to boycott the state for protecting life.

Why is that hypocritical? While Disney is heavily marketed to children, the company partners with and does a great deal of business in China, where abortions are not always by choice, and where the communist government abuses human rights and imprisons people for their political and religious beliefs. Netflix is no better, producing series in Egypt and Jordan, where abortion is illegal and punishable due to laws far stricter than Georgia’s. Yet numerous famous people had the gall to write to Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp saying they would “do everything in our power to move our industry to a safer state for women.” Just don’t tell Harvey Weinstein where those women are.

We’d say Hollywood’s craven display is all about the almighty dollar, except it’s hard to see how it’s profitable for these production companies to tell half of their American audiences that they’re “deplorable.” In reality, this is nothing more than the Hollywood hive mind at work. “I think many people who work for us will not want to work there, and we will have to heed their wishes in that regard,” opined Disney CEO Bob Iger. It’s a wretched hive of scum and villainy, where the only people they care to please are themselves. ~The Patriot Post
