Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, April 19, 2019

Analysis: On Friday morning, Donald Trump took to Twitter to attack the Mueller report -- and, not-so-subtly -- his former White House counsel Don McGahn ... Here's the delicious irony of Trump attacking his former top lawyer: McGahn's refusal to heed the President's directive to fire Mueller -- or to tell the deputy attorney general to fire Mueller -- very well may have saved Trump's presidency.

Saved it for the time being, maybe.

Or maybe had another SP been appointed, they wouldn't have been so prissy about having plenty of evidence for obstruction and not pursuing it to the fullest, only leaving that to Congress.

Hmm...Corky sees plenty of evidence while the federal prosecutors saw insufficient to charge amounts.
Who to believe, noted liar Corky or bilaterally applauded Mueller and company?

ABIGBORE seems to have missed Mueller demurring from trying to charge a sitting Pres with crimes, but rather providing Congress with plenty of evidence for Hearings.... such as those that pushed Tricky Dick out of office.

If only he were brighter... OK, a great deal brighter, be might learn something here from Lawfare:

But no one who's ever had the misfortune of reading his drivel will believe he will learn anything at all.

#2 I've yet to see anything indicating a lack of evidence or insufficient evidence charge with obstruction.

Mueller's concern was deference to DoJ policy and the possible unconstitutionality of hindering the executive's ability to govern by charging and the inability to a Constitutionally guaranteed right to a fair and speedy trial.

At least read the summaries before commenting.

Seems like President Bucket of ---- was mostly incompetent at obstruction.

And the Trump Campaign has already punished the law firm that Don McGahn works for. Up until the Mueller report was released this week, McGahn's law firm was working for the campaign, but they've now been told that their services are no longer needed. As one campaign employee was reported to have stated, why give money to people who have harmed the president.

Mueller listed 10 instances of obstruction. He couldn't indict a sitting president, so he laid it all out for Congress and prosecutors to use in the future once Trump is out of office.

Not to mention the plethora of US attorneys (4 districts), state AGs, local DAs, 6 Congressional committees, and state agencies investigating Trump and his business activities.

Republicans in the Senate will never do the right thing and convict if he was impeached. They've stood idly by, looking the other way or justifying one egregious action after another, afraid of Trump's 30% base and more concerned about their own political as*es instead of the well being of American democracy.

Well, we certainly are not going to believe you.

You didn't even read the report.

No one is above the Law.

It's right in the Report.

@#2 ... the federal prosecutors saw insufficient to charge amounts ...

Your interpretation of what Mr Mueller wrote may not be correct. Perhaps you are going on AG BArr's spin control comments.

In the area of obstruction, Mr Mueller wrote along the lines of the following...

- The DoJ guidelines prevent the indictment of a sitting president.

- If he (Mr Mueller) were to charge Pres Trump, there could be no trial, according to those DoJ guidelines.

- Mr Mueller did not want to charge Pres Trump because, without a trial, Pres Trump would not be able to prove if he were innocent.

- So Mr Mueller preserved the evidence and contemporaneous documents until such a time when non-Pres Trump could be charged, i.e., when he leaves office.

It's all there in the report, quite nicely written, if only you take the time to read it.
