Mueller report: Subpoena issued for unredacted version

 

Quote

A subpoena demanding the release of the full report into Russian meddling during the 2016 election has been issued, amid claims the current version "leaves most of Congress in the dark".

 

Democrat Jerry Nadler, chairman of the House judiciary committee, argued it is entitled to an unredacted version.

 

Mr Trump's legal team argues it completely exonerates the president.

 

The Department of Justice has reacted by calling the subpoena "premature and unnecessary".

It said it would "continue to work with Congress to accommodate its legitimate requests consistent with the law and long-recognised executive branch interests".

 

Elizabeth Warren became the first Democratic presidential candidate to call for Mr Trump to be impeached.

"The severity of this misconduct demands that elected officials in both parties set aside political considerations and do their constitutional duty," said the Massachusetts senator.

Not 'not guilty', just the Scots verdict of 'not proven'.

Yes, let's clear that up for everyone with a little analogy. Say you bought a used car  at a dealership. It looked good and drove pretty well, but you got a warranty anyway. After a little while, you noticed it wasn't running well, so you went back to the dealer. The dealer's mechanic said, "No, problems. It's just fine." Yet, you still had the problem. So, then you went to an independent mechanic and you asked him to tell you what was wrong. He came back to you with a laundry list of things, some major and some minor. 

Do you expect the mechanic to sue the dealership for you?

What if the customer completely fabricated the problems and the independent mechanic verified that the car was sound but the dealer had been unpleasant when confronted with false accusations of impropriety?  :lol:

 

You never learn.

That's not what happened. I see you haven't bothered reading the actual report. Barr lied to you. Again.

In his press conference, Barr stated that he has no objection to Mueller testifying in front of a Congressional panel.   If Barr has made material misrepresentations, Mueller will have a chance to publicly clarify any open points.    This is important. 

 

Congress is back in session on 29 April.   Hopefully, something can be arranged soon after.    

 

If Mueller does not deliver the next domino in his testimony, you can complain that the redacted parts of the report are key to determining the truth, and Mueller is in on the coverup.   

 

What do you think John Brennan meant when he said he had been given "bad information" after making sensational claims for 2+ years?

Awww, everyone look at alt-bicus - isn't it cute? In addition to insisting that it's a female from Estonia, despite having long been busted as another SA618 alt, it has now decided to live in March 29, 2019 forever. For those of you who haven't been following at home, that's the day after Barr delivered his fictitious 4-page "summary" of the Mueller Report (although he realized just what a dumbfuck move that was a day or so later and tried to walk back the "summary" part several times since). That's when John Brennan was quoted stating that he had been given "bad information" (on Fox News, of course, which is why alt-bicus/March 29 Loretta knows about it).

 

Turns out, that will have been the happiest day in alt-bicus'/March 29 Loretta's life, because every day that has come after that has produced more and more bad news for Trump and those in his inner orbit - whether it's Trump fearing that he was "fucked" after learning that a special counsel had been appointed, Sarah Wonkeye Sanders admitting that she flat-out lied to the White House press, or Mueller taking steps to ensure that Trump's malfeasance will follow him long after he leaves office.

 

Too bad alt-bicus is as bad at gaslighting as s/he is at herding alts, because s/he's bet on the wrong pony. As the days pass and people get the chance to read and digest even the heavily redacted version of what Mueller and his team have written, they've found at least 10 instances of possible obstruction of justice committed by Trump personally, even as Trump's team continues its feeble efforts at distortion - much like alt-bicus does on here.

 

Trump may be able to order his follower sheep to watch his friends at Fox News and OANN continue the spin the bullshit that Barr is serving for breakfast, but you don't have that power, March 29 Loretta. The rest of us will continue to use real sources that are reporting in the present while you live in the past.

"As Russia probe began, Trump called on spy chiefs for help"

 

Quote

WASHINGTON (AP) — Two months before special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed in the spring of 2017, President Donald Trump picked up the phone and called the head of the largest U.S. intelligence agency.

Trump told Mike Rogers, director of the National Security Agency, that news stories alleging that Trump’s 2016 White House campaign had ties to Russia were false and the president asked whether Rogers could do anything to counter them.

 

Rogers and his deputy Richard Ledgett, who was present for the call, were taken aback.

Afterward, Ledgett wrote a memo about the conversation and Trump’s request. He and Rogers signed it and stashed it in a safe. Ledgett said it was the “most unusual thing he had experienced in 40 years of government service.”

 

I wonder how often Dodgy Donny says "I'm fucked"...

I must be on acid:

 

"Giuliani: Nothing wrong with Trump camp taking Russian help"

 

Quote

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani insisted Sunday there was “nothing wrong” with the president’s 2016 campaign taking information from the Russians, as House Democrats pledged stepped-up investigations into campaign misconduct and possible crimes of obstruction detailed in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report .

 

Giuliani called the Trump campaign’s effort to get political help from representatives of the Russian government possibly ill-advised but not illegal.

Knowing Trump, he'll lash out at the legal pot industry after having his eggshell feelings tapped with the teaspoon of satire...

I might be wrong but I think that legal pot is determined state by state and not by the federal guvment. Besides, it would be a stupid thing to do when one has a teenage son.

It is but it remains illegal at the federal level, so if Trump wanted to flex his flabby muscles, he could. He'd get the FBI to start raiding Pot pharmacies and so on...

An editorial in The Observer newspaper on Sunday called for the cancellation of PresidentDonald Trump’s upcoming state visit to the U.K. in the wake of the Mueller report.

“The prospect of Donald Trump making a state visit to Britain in June is stomach-churning,” the Sunday sister paper of The Guardian noted. “The corruption investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, whose damning report was published last week, provided ample evidence of what we already know: Trump is unfit to hold the office of president of the United States.”

The paper’s editorial said that honoring this “unworthy man” with a state visit, including an address to Parliament and a carriage ride with Queen Elizabeth II, would give an “undeserved boost to a wounded charlatan.” It also attacked Trump’s “reactionary policies” on climate change, migration, race, multilateralism, Yemen, nuclear arms and civil liberties.

“By his words and actions over two wretched, destructive years in power, he has proved beyond doubt he is no friend of Britain,” the editorial said.

Trump hit a wall of opposition among Brits during his state visit to the U.K. last summer. Almost all of Trump’s events took place outside of London, where the crowds of protesters were the largest.

His visit also marked the debut of the famous Trump baby blimp, which depicts the president as a toddler in diapers having a tantrum.

In response, Trump went golfing at his resort in Scotland. But protesters gathered there, too, including a paraglider bearing a sign that read: “Trump: Well Below Par. #RESIST.
