The Washington Post fact checks Trump's statements on any of financial entanglements with Russia. The newspaper took past statements made Trump and compares them to the information that is emerging about Trump Organization's dealings with Russia creating a timeline.

For me, this still does not provide an explanation why candidate and Pres Trump, and those around him, lied so many times, about so many things, involving Russia.

If it were, as Pres Trump has recently stated, that he was just conducting his business while he was campaigning, why didn't he just say so during the campaign, and then just continue campaigning?

It still seems that something is being hidden from the Country because of all the lies told by those in the Trump circle.

Republicans are okay with his lying about doing business with an opposing foreign power during the election.

Why?

Because their party's only remaining priority is white supremacy. It is more important to them than the health of the planet, their kids, the budget, or even the concept of patriotism itself.

Here's how this will shake out from here:
-DJTJ will be indicted for lying to Congress. After a lot of ducking and diving by the GOP, he will be convicted and then pardoned, after which the Dems will subpoena him and keep him testifying until he gets sores on his butt
-Jared and Ivanka will skate--barely. Eric will have time out in the corner for many months
-After a huge fight, Trump's taxes will be delivered to Congress. They will turn to the page where the lenders for his real estate deals are listed. There will be a number of unpronounceable Russian banks named, along with Deutsche Bank. Trump will put out some lefthanded tweets, scarcely recognizing the national humiliation he has brought upon the country
-After all this, some GOP hacks will still support Trump
-President Pence, after about 11 months in office, will decide to not run for the presidency in 2020, recognizing the stink that envelopes him, like dog feces on both of his shoes
-Joe Biden will become the nation's 46th president, much to the rejoicing of nearly all the free world

Clip and save--you heard it here first

#9 Some accuracies, but you omit a critical piece which is how you get Trump removed from office. The Republican senate will never vote to impeach him, regardless of what the Mueller report shows.

@#10 ... The Republican senate will never vote to impeach him ...

As I understand it, briefly...

The House impeaches.

The Senate convicts.

Impeachment is like an indictment, one needs to go through a trial before a conviction is reached. The trial for conviction occurs in the Senate.

totally true. The whole impeachment process happens in the house. The trial after impeachment happens in the senate which requires 67 votes to convict.

you're suggesting that a republican senate won't convict. if the democratic house finds cause to convict and offers the proof to the american public..and votes in the senate are party line votes, then it's up to repub senators to explain why they choose to ignore evidence..and should be re-elected

#14 that's not nearly as perilous position as you seem to think it would be.

Hell, no matter what Mueller says the righties will justify it away and get mad at the Dems like the good little brain dead, spoon fed morons they are.

#14 If Congressional Republicans had any shame, Trump would already be gone. You're giving them way too much credit. Everyone already knows he is criminal scum and they haven't done a thing about it. The Mueller report isn't going to change that.

Trump owns their party now. If they impeach him, he can start his own party and Republicans will never win another election.

Joe,

The same doomsday prediction was made about the GOP after Nixon. During W the Republicans bragged of a permanent majority. Politics is cyclical. Clinton thrived while grifting. LBJ was a more contemptible person than Trump. Harding's Ohio Gang of cronies was arguably the worst corruption at that level the country has ever experienced.

This isn't to downplay the awfulness of Trump. It's historical perspective.

Unfortunately for justice, the impeachment process is more of a political animal than a legal one.

Citation needed. At least LBJ worked hard.

LBJ's Great Society legislation sought to help poor and disadvantaged people, not hurt them.

What's Trump's legislative accomplishments, and who did they help?

LBJ was married to the same woman for over 35 years.

This is Trump's 3rd marriage (so far).

Historical perspective.

LBJ was a vicious man. From a historical perspective I'd say he was an above-average POTUS when looking at his accomplishments/failings.

LBJ was a POS. He lied about the tonkin incident just to get us deeper into war in viet nam.

September and October 2015: Cohen and Sater, who had worked on previous real estate proposals for Trump in Russia, began discussions about a potential deal. According to The Washington Post, "an unidentified investor planned to build the project and, under a licensing agreement, put Trump's name on it." Sater believed that, with Trump's publicity from the campaign, it would be perfect timing. He began to contact former contacts in Russia and put together a licensing deal for the Moscow project fairly quickly.

Jan. 14-16, 2016: Cohen emailed Dmitry Peskov, a top aide and spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, to enlist his help "to secure land and permits," according to documents submitted to Congress.

So which was it, someone wanted to build a hotel and pay Trump to put his name on it or Trump wanted to buy land and build the hotel himself.
Wow, and talking to Cohen a whole 3 times about this in nearly a year sounds like the clincher!

It's funny because Trump went to Wharton, an Ivy League school.
