Mueller’ Testimony – Democrats Dilemma – A Solution

On Thursday, July 25, 2019, Jennifer Rubin wrote in the Washington Post:

“Democratic presidential candidates and voters had better get their act together to find someone to beat Trump. If not, Trump with the complicity of a craven party and the indulgence of those who know better will further fray our tenuous attachment to democracy and truth.”

Earlier she had written that Mueller: “confirmed that President Trump accepted help from a hostile foreign power and lied about it, that he lied when he claimed exoneration, that he was not completely truthful in written answers, that he could be prosecuted after leaving office and that he misled Americans by calling the investigation a hoax . . . . “

Mueller testified before Congress on Wednesday, July 23, 2019. He did reaffirm his conclusion that Russia attacked America during the 2016 election in a systematic manner. He spent the first section of his report spelling this out and noting that the purpose of this attack was to benefit Trump during the run up to the election spelling out the enormous amount of time and effort put in by Russia to do this.

He did note that he could not prove Trump or his campaign people had conspired with Russia to do this although he noted several instances where Trump attempted to interfere with is attempts to reach that conclusion.

Representative Devin Nunes the ranking member on the Intelligence Committee noted: “There is collusion in plain sight — collusion between Russia and the Democratic Party,” To believe him you must believe that Russia and the Democratic Party were colluding to get Trump elected.

Representative Guy Reschenthaler had the temerity to say to Mueller: “I find those facts and this entire process unamerican.” If there is one thing that you cannot say about Mueller after looking at his record of service to this country is that he is unamerican.

The Republicans made a hysterical attempt to defend the indefensible which are the actions of Trump as described in the Mueller report. They complained about the money, time and energy spent in his investigation while at the same time complaining he did not investigate other people that they thought he should have done. They repudiated his report and his methods while at the same time telling us that it exonerated Trump – which it clearly didn’t as Mueller told us.

I came away from the hearing with the same belief I had going in that the hearing with its format of having five-minute questioning time for each member of a committee a waste of time. I assisted a Congressman in the Clinton impeachment hearings and had the same conclusion.

I felt the Democratic members of Nadler’s committee had scripted their questions too greatly so that they took out all the excitement and emotion. They let their opportunity to use rhetorical questions put forth with feelings. They acted like the hearings were only to educate themselves and those who  watched. They appealed to the listeners logic. Forgetting the lessons of Aristotle they did not appeal to their emotions. There were no good “one liners” that would be remembered. There were many that could have been used. They educated but did not convince.

Now with Pelosi refusing to impeach without explaining why – and the strangeness of Trump and McConnell saying nice things about her lately – the only option the Democrats have left is to win the next election. Like Jennifer Rubin I believe “Democratic presidential candidates and voters had better get their act together to find someone to beat Trump.”

I believe she is saying, what I also believe, is that the crew now running has no chance. I’m tired of people nominating themselves for president. It should be up to the people to decide who will be nominated. For years I have believed Adam Schiff would be the best choice for Democrats. I still do.

  1. Wa-llahi! I wonder what’s going on in the Gulag Americana? All those dick-in-the-dirt -dumb white guys who espoused Christian Fascism must be delighted with the current turn of events. Helter-skelter is beginning to be reality rather than a nightmare. Manson would be proud.

    1. When you read your own posts, where do you tingle? Manson would be proud? And I thought you were an intellectual.

      1. Wa-llahi! Struck a nerve? Manson was an interesting fellow. See Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” There were thousands of kids with their thumbs in the wind, back then. I was one of them.

        1. “Wa-llahi! Struck a nerve?”

          Not even close. I can write shocking shit all day long. Manson was an interesting fellow? That’s a line right out of a Trump speech. Kind of like….”There were good and bad people….on both sides. Both sides.”

          Tarantino’s films are 98% bullshit, but they are interesting.

          All power to the Diabetic! May Alice be with you.

  2. I wonder if the El Paso shooter was schooled by someone like Nazi Tad? If, so, that kid’s 8-chan mentor should stand on the scaffold with him.

  3. Wa-llahi! All you Trumpsovki are going to have to take up arms to defend Glorious Leader, and, the fascist party, otherwise, they ‘ll be going down the toilet bowl. As Trump declines, his followers will become more desperate. There is a good chance there won’t be a 2020 election, if it seems likely Glorious Leader will lose the contest. Trump faces prison over his actions, once, he isn’t President, anymore. He’ll won’t hesitate to pull down the whole nation to save himself. Good luck trying to defend him. See you at the barricades.

  4. Mueller was not estopped from concluding “Conspiracy.” He concluded “No Conspiracy.” He was not estopped from concluding “Obstruction.” He failed to conclude obstruction. The A.G. rightfully concluded “No Obstruction.”
    The case is over.
    Mueller abused his power (1) by assembling a biased team, (2) by claiming he had the power or authority to “exonerate”, (3)by listing “evidence” of obstruction without listing exculpatory or mitigating evidence, without stating the weight, probative value or credibility of that evidence (other than to say it was “substantial” . . .It can be both substantial and contravened by substantial mitigating/exculpatory) (4) by giving a one-sided interpretation of that evidence (Prosecutors’ ethical duty is to disclose exculpatory evidence), and, (5) even after his job was done, after he submitted his report to the A.G., by writing a letter questioning the A.G.’s interpretation of his report.

    Power to the people who live under the U.S. Constitution, and in accordance with its Spirit of Freedom, Equality, Fairness and Justice.

    UP THE REPUBLIC of the good old USA.

    As was stated, “The President is not above the law, nor is he below the law.” Mueller’s team of pro-Hillary Democratic partisans, biased from the get-go, treated the President unfairly and unjustly.

  5. Wallahi! One of the first things Adolf Hitler did when he first gained power was to reinstate the death penalty. He was to add many crimes to his original list of heinous acts that merited death. Our Glorious Leader can do no less. Through work we shall be freed. All praise to the fighting Congress women ( Fantastic Four). All power to the dialectic.

  6. Lastly, let’s be precise when we use the term Russians.

    During Muellar’s hearings, a Congressman pointed out that Mueller’s team went to Court and was unable to offer evidence to a judge that the Russian Government attempted to interfere in our elections.

    There are RUSSIAN TROLLS, TURKISH TROLLS, POLISH TROLLS, CHINESE TROLLS, individual actors with cyber-internet expertise who gain access to public and private servers and computers worldwide. There are GEEKS.

    I WANT TO STUDY HOW MANY COUNTRIES AMERICANS HAVE INTERFERED WITH . . . .PRIVATE AMERICANS, AMERICAN CORPORATIONS, CIA, DEFENSE, ETC, PUBLIC AND PRIVATE ACTORS . . . .SINCE AND INCLUDING THE VIETNAM WAR . . . .HOW MANY FOREIGN ELECTIONS HAS THE US AND NATO INTERFERED WITH?

    WHEN WILL THE BRITISH AND FRENCH STOP INTERFERING IN OTHERS’ ELECTIONS?

    WHEN WILL THE PROPAGANDA, AGIT-PROP, AND WAR MONGERING STOP?

  7. Matt often reminds us that the law is what the judges say it is (of course judges sometimes misintepret the Constitution, Statutes and Case Law (precedents), but we all agree that what the Supreme Court says the law is is the law until the Supreme Court reverses itself.
    So, the Supreme Court said the President can LAWFULLY take billions from Defense to build the wall. The next day both Pelosi and Schumer said the President was “stealing” money from Defense to build the wall.
    You see, we are living in George Orwell’s age of Newspeak and Doublespeak. Words no longer have any meaning, except the meaning the power-brokers give them to stoke the masses into anger.

    I say reject the Leftist Academic Drivel attempting to silence our speech and narrowly channel our thinking. The Left does this by telling us certain terms are OFFENSIVE . . .

    The Left says Sex is not Gender. I say Sex is Gender, except in very narrow instances when a person of one sex identifies as the opposite sex. Because a small minority does so, we should not stop using the terms Male and Female.

    The Left says: Don’t Culturally Appropriate. I say wear Mexican or any other costumes you want on Halloween or any other day of the year. As a MUSICIAN, I say play the Girl from Ipanema, Brazil, or any other Latino song you want to whenever you want to.

    Academics and Leftists prepare lists of OFFENSIVE WORDS> I encourage all students to exercise your First Amendment Freedoms of Speech and Expression and to deliberately use those words and wear those costumes that offend the LEFTIST.

    Orwell said he saw the future: A BOOT STEPPING ON HUMAN FACE . . .FOREVERE.

    TODAY’S BOOTS ARE IN ACADEMIA AND AMONG THE LEFTIST POLITICIANS who misuse English Language to advance leftist socio-political causes and to intimidate.

    I say don’t be intimidated. Rebel against Leftist Newspeak and Doublespeak and “Offensive Language”.

    Building the Wall with DOD funds is not “stealing”, Mr. Schumer, Miss Pelosi. Stealing is a crime, is unlawful, is wrong. The Supreme Court said it is lawful, just, proper and right.

    STOP ABUSING LANGUAGE.

    REBEL AGAINST THE LEFTISTS IN POLITICS AND THE LEFTISTS IN ACADEMIA. DON’T GO ALONG.

    1. wa-llahia! Bill! Did you say you were gonna dress-up like the Girl from Ipanema? I have to reread that.

  8. What the Russians were trying to do – and largely succeeded and continue to do so – is sow discord and disruption. It is ridiculous to suggest that the Russians had better insight in the US politics than all the domestic experts, hardly any of whom thought Trump could be elected.

    Mueller still couldn’t say why, although he considered his role as that of a US Attorney investigating and considering a prosecution, his Report stated affirmatively in Volume 2 on Obstruction that it did not “exonerate” Trump. What prosecutor has ever said someone was exonerated? What is the burden of proof for exoneration? Who has it? What is the significance of the fact that he said it about Obstruction but not Russian Collusion?

    Sure the solution is the same as it always is: win the next election. It’s going to be hard for them to do with the Gang of 4 driving voters to Trump with new stories every day. The gift that keeps on giving.

  9. I agree generally with the three comments here.

    I think it’s one thing to say the Russians interfered to get Trump elected, and quite another thing to say that the Russians interfered to keep Hillary from getting elected. The latter is what I believe.

    1. Huh? What’s the difference between being against Hilary, or, for Trump? I don’t think the Kremlin can distinguish between the two. Glorious Leader is a traitor, either way. The only saving grace in this situation is that Trump’s defenders are, basically, unschooled. His army would have to be all privates. He wouldn’t have an officer corps. They’d be eliminated from gaining a commission due to over education. Remember, half the people of the United States are of sub-normal intelligence.

      1. The difference is this: No matter who ran against Hillary, the Russians’ aim was to keep her from gaining the Oval Office. That is, their focus had nothing to do with her eventual opponent and everything to do with working against her.

      2. So, Putin, and, Trump, are not like minded individuals? Glorious Leader envies Putin. Trump would like to have the power of life and death over his critics.

        It seems the civil war has already begun. I’m figuring bombs are next. The fascists won’t be satisfied with murdering people by the ten. High casualty events that kill hundreds of innocents are in the works. For all the criticism of the FBI that occurs on this blog, we better hope they know their business, and, can get a handle on the current situation.

        1. “Trump would like to have the power of life and death over his critics.”

          Like Hillary.

      3. “Remember, half the people of the United States are of sub-normal intelligence.”

        Really? Can you field dress a squirrel?

  10. Matt, you write as if you know nothing of GPS Fusion and the DOSSIER that DEFAMED TRUMP, a dossier prepared by British Agent Steele working with RUSSIANS, and a DOSSIER paid for by Hillary Clinton’s Campaign, and the SOLE PURPOSE of that DOSSIER was to destroy TRUMP.
    HILLARY, GPS FUSION, STEEL AND THE RUSSIANS conspired to destroy TRUMP.
    Get that simple fact straight.
    Muller’s report IGNORED hillary’s campaign’s contacts with Russians through Steele and other contacts of Hillary’s people with Russians. His report was one side, biased and blind to countervailing evidence.

    2. Adam Schiff is two-faced, typical liberal, who uses words as if words’ meanings were infinitely malleable, and facts and Truth were irrelevant, and the only purpose of speech is to win power. For two years he swore absolutely that there was overwhelming evidence Trump criminally conspired with Russia and implied Trump was a tool of Putin and the Russians.

    Adam Schiff is a man I judge to have no moral constraints upon him.

    4. Bob Muller and Benedict Arnold both served honorably in combat. Benedict Arnold betrayed his country, became a turncoat.

    Bob Muller failed in his duty to conduct an impartial investigation, free from the appearance of impropriety, by assembling an all Democratic, pro-Hillary, biased team of lawyers to investigate President Trump. The bias was glaring, and he was blind to it.

    He also failed in his duty to conduct an investigation consistent with American Constitutional and American Ciminal Jurisprudential Principles, and instead he proceeded as if and concluded his job was to EXONERATE.

    Bob Mueller acted in an un-American way in assembling a highly biased team and in proceeding in contravention of the American principle of INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY.

    Bob Mueller acted in an un-American way in dragging his biased investigation out for over two years.

    Bob Mueller further abused his power by, after submitting his final report to the AG, writing a letter to the AG questioning the AG’s summation of his report.

    Bob Mueller exceeded his power by stating the President’s written responses were “generally untruthful.” If he thought so, his report should have flagged the president for perjury.

    Bob Mueller ended his career infamously, in an un-American fashion, and even previously as FBI director he likely infamously greenlighted the false “rogue FBI agent” theory, or sat idly by and did nothing to impede the grossly wrongful prosecutions of Connolly and Rico, based soley on the worlds of serial killers, attempted murderers and a truly corrupt FBI agent John Morris, a conscienceless man, an admitted attempted murderer and admitted recipient of bribes from gangsters, whom the FEDs used as a songbird after promising Morris witness protection. Morris would sing any song FED prosecutors wanted, and Mueller must have known this and known the “rogue agent” theory was false.

  11. Jennnifer Rubin of WAPO and WAPO itself is full of MALARKEY as is the New York Times.
    Matt: Try reading the Wall Street Journal..

    I agree 100% with NC.

    Mueller assembled a biased pro-Dem, pro-Hillary team which issued a biased report, and even so the report found “No conspiracy” and a footnote in the report expressly stated that collusion and conspiracy were synonymous and Mueller, the dunce, was not even aware what his own report said.

    Mueller’s report reached no conclusion on obstruction . . . .END OF STORY . . . . .evidence of obstruction is not synonymous with STRONG ENOUGH, COMPELLING ENOUGH, CONVINCING ENOUGH EVIDENCE to reach a conclusion.

    Mueller’s grotesquely biased team prepared a grotesquely biased report which nevertheless concluded “No Conspiracy = No Collusion” and which failed to reach a conclusion on obstruction.

    Idiots like Rubin of WAPO think contacts with Russians = CONSPIRACY, if so my grandnieces visit to Moscow last Spring means they Conspired and Concluded with Russians.

    NO GOVERNMENT ACTOR IN OUR SYSTEM OF JUSTICE “EXONERATES” OR DECLARES INNOCENT OR ABSOLVES ACCUSED FROM SIN, BUT THAT BOOB MULLER SAID IF HE HAD FOUND TRUMP WAS INNOCENT HIS REPORT WOULD HAVE DECLARED HIM INNOCENT. HIS REPORT WRITTEN BY BIASED IGNORAMUSES STATED AND MULLER HIMSELF REPEATEDLY EMPHASIZED THAT HIS BIASED TEAM OF LIBERAL HILLARY-SUPPORTING DEMS HAD NOT “EXONERATED” THE PRESIDENT. He has no power to exonerate, it is oxymoronic for an investigator/prosecutor to assume his role is to declare innocent.

    WHAT UNMITIGATED MORONS.

  12. The entire Russian Collusion story was a hoax. It had no merit whatsoever. A false charge from the get go. Mueller is a sorry, old confused man who framed Connolly and Rico. He was clueless at that hearing and the format had nothing to do with it. He, Comey and Obama lied about the Tsarnaev- FBI connection and the Boston Marathon Bombing. The only hope for the Demmies is Avenatti, Weinstein, Epstein or Rufus Jones. Four more years. Happy days are here again.
