Read the Mueller Report: Searchable Document and Index BY THE NEW YORK TIMES

In 1966 Robert F. Kennedy delivered a speech that included an instance: There is a Chinese curse which says “May he live in interesting times.” Like it or not, we live in interesting times. They aretimes of danger and uncertainty; but they are also the most creative of any time in the history of mankind.

Two days ago special counsel Robert Mueller made a 9 1/2 minute report to the country. Whether you like him or you don’t like him this man is a patriot and I believe he wanted to warn us not just about the abuses in the white house but also the threat to our democracy by foreign actors, especially Russia, but with thanks to this Administration to others including China and Iran.

he urged that all Americans read the reports that he and his team put together. It’s not a dry read but it’s certainly not a John Grisham novel I’m posting this because I’m hoping that my followers on this blog will take the time to download this and read the part they are interested in if not the whole 485 pages.

Our democracy is at stake here. I think it is our civic duty to read this report that took two years in the making. Yesterday the report paid for itself. Paul manafort’s for securus of his properties including a condominium on the 43rd floor of Trump Tower are now the properties of the United States of America and its citizenry. The Marshal Service will be posting these properties for sale and they’re value is considered to be conservatively at 42 million dollars. The whole power investigation cost $22, 000,000.

Let TV commentators be TV commentators but it’s time for us to get on the saddle and read the report itself.

QAnon Believers Crushed After Mueller Report Fails to Lead to Hillary Clinton’s Arrest – The Daily Beast

It must feel like they were just told there was no Santa Claus. PizzaGate, child slave trade markets, all the other idiotic things that they came up with in their cult-like beliefs are all going down the drain.

I hope the sting they are feeling today will last for the next 18 months and they don’t go out and vote for Trump. It’s quite clear now that the dust has settled and smart people have read them all a report or what we can see of it that’s Trump was not indicted or brought up on charges because of the Justice department’s weird regulation that a president cannot be indicted while in office. Robert Mueller made it quite clear and its final pages that when or if the Congress decides to impeach Trump then criminal prosecution can follow because statute of limitations would not be running out at that point.

I’m a little disappointed and not hearing from Nancy Pelosi today. I know she’s in Europe but I believe there is these newfangled things called telephones or Internet, television camerasshe is an effective leader of the democratic party until we have a nominee and we needed to hear from her. That being sent I think the Democrats have the wind in their backs now as I’ve said so many times before Republicans win by cheating did the Democrats know how to lose better than anybody else on the planet.

At least the night as I lay my head on the pillow I go to sleep knowing that there is a larger crook in the white house then even Richard Nixon was. Richard Nixon made the mistake of recording his crimes something that Trump did not do. I don’t think the shoes of all dropped. Mother farmed out so much of the work that did not involve Russia or collusion and the difference offices of the Department of Justice across the country will follow suit as well as the FBI. This is not over.

White House and Justice Dept. Officials Discussed Mueller Report Before Release – New York Times

Yes, I am a partisan Democrat and very proud of that. When my dad came to this country he saw which side was good and talk me the same.

Republicans win because they cheat. Democrats lose because they’re good at it.

I have watched a litany of amazing people who ran for president and did not win because Republicans cheat

Let’s start with Nixon, Hubert Humphrey was the vice president under Lyndon Baines Johnson and would have been a wonderful president of the United States but Nixon had to cheat it’s called Watergate.

George McGovern who ran in 1972 and who received my first vote in a presidential election. He ran against Nixon cheats.

After the Fall From Grace that Nixon suffered Gerald Ford immediately pardon him when he became president. A move I’m sure that Mike Pence would emulate in a second if he got to be president. Jimmy Carter 1 in 1976 when the United States needed a change from all of this cheating.

But never fear Ronald Reagan came to the scene and went and negotiated behind Jimmy Carter’s back to release the Iranian hostages. he made Jimmy Carter look weak and one of the best presidents we ever had lost in his re-election bid. You all know Jimmy Carter has one of the most amazing ex-presidents who even had his current age is building homes for the needy.

Al Gore won the election against George W Bush, but the Republicans cheat and because of the mess that the State of Florida is we got the wrong man to be president and we got to Wars that we still are in because of that. Think about what an Al Gore presidency would have done for our planet, instead of making videos he would have been able to actually make policy that would have reversed climate change in time for all of what’s happening right now not to have happened.

In 2004 John Kerry a military hero was Swift boated by the cheating Republicans and made to look like a deserter. This is coming from a president who had never done anything except to avoid military service. George W Bush came from a family of military service but he had nothing to do with it.

They try to cheat against President Obama but he was good and he had moderately honorable opponents.

Which takes us to present day and the cheater in Chief who currently occupies the White House. He colluded with Russians, wikileak, and anyone else he could get to cheat himself into the White House.

so it’s not surprising that tomorrow when the Mueller report comes out they would have already cheated. They are going to try to eclipse the Mueller Report with news coverage of their own but the American people are smarter than that and I think they’re going to see through it.

Always remember Republicans win because they cheat.

Attorney General William Barr should be looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life because he can look at history books and see. Attorney General Mitchell went to jail for what he did for Nixon during Watergate. May William Barr suffer the same fate.

Manafort’s lawyers taunt Mueller for not tying him to Russian interference in 2016 election – CNNPolitics

First a little bit of editorial comment.

Bravo CNN, once again you prove to be anything but the leader in news. Instead of showing disc traders mugshot you instead show him with Cadillacs in the background. I’m not doing that. So mugshot it is.

Mr. Manafort when you signed the plea agreement with the special council you waived your rights to plead for a lighter sentence. You agreed that if you did not meet the requirements are the plea agreement that the book would be thrown at you. If I had my way I would throw the whole library at you. Your traitor and saying that you were trying to make these bad people better did not work out. everyone that you did business with was a bad person and they remain bad to the core and were thrown out of office except for Putin who is your good friend.

your plea agreement clearly stated that you are not to do anything illegal while you are waiting for sentencing. I guess a criminal to the Core cannot stop himself. So a life sentence is I hope what you are going to get.

Traitor!

Manafort lied to the FBI after his guilty plea, special counsel says – Los Angeles Times

He cavorted with tyrants, oligarchs and dictators. That’s the kind of man Paul manafort, with a small m is. So it’s not surprising that the chairman of the Trump election Committee in 2016 would lie after he made a plea deal. Have you ever heard of a den of thieves, that’s what’s Trump, his White House staff and everyone associated with his campaign are, a den of thieves.

Liars are liars and they won’t stopeven if it means they’re going to spend the rest of their lives in jail

Trump feels angry, unprotected amid mounting crises – Washington Post

This reminds me of the scene in a movie when the accused murderer has been sentenced and he or she starts crying knowing that their fate has been sealed. Sure, he can use the power of the presidency to unclassified documents for his Russian overlords. He can claim that he has no Attorney General. He can put up obstacles throughout the investigation. You can have a clown of an attorney talkin on television nonsense including saying things like the truth isn’t the truth. He can appoint to the Supreme Court a man completely unfit, who believes in an imperial presidency. All this is not going to and the fact that at the end of the day he is going to be in deep trouble. And it’s a trouble of his own making. Perhaps he never thought he was going to be president. Perhaps he believed the polls. Sure now he goes on and on about his miraculous and legendary victory. But in fact he stole the election. He cheated. Do we need to say anything more than to quote him when he said in a speech during the campaign, Russia if you’re listening Please Release Hillary Clinton’s emails.

I can’t wait till this nightmare, of the tangerine color is out of our Lives. The sooner the better. And don’t think that Mike Pence is in better shape, in fact he was in charge of the transition and therefore had to know everything that was going on. perhaps the American people finally figure out that the Republicans don’t have their best interest on their mind and its current configuration. It’s time to vote them out of office and truly get back to the normal order of business. I just hope that this man does not take the country down with him.

Aides expect Trump to go rogue on Manafort pardon – POLITICO

Great tactician have been defeated by the smallest details. Alexander didn’t realize how hard it would be to rule an Empire that large. Napoleon Bonaparte never thought how he would feed his troops while invading Russia. And I could go on. Now mind you I don’t think of Trump as a great tactician, his tactics car seat of the pants. So I say all this because I’m not sure that he realizes if he pardons Manafort that will make it easier for prosecutors to question Manafort because he has no self-incrimination problems and cannot plead the Fifth Amendment.

So if our fearless leader plans on pardoning Manafort he’s got to do it well into Manafort’s prison term. I’m sure that I am not the only person that has heard pundants talked about this on television. Me thinks that Mr manafort’s family may be listening to it as well and will tell their imprisoned family member that it’s time for him to flip. Yes I use the colloquial that seems to be Trump’s favorite, the language of the mob. He has referred to John Dean, of Watergate Fame, as erect. Yesterday he said in his Fox and Friends interview that he thinks flipping should be illegal.

That’s why I am of the same opinion as Bill Maher who honestly believes, and so do I that this election coming up in about 2 months will be pivotal to the continuation of the United States of America as we have come to know it. Bill Maher gave a million dollars last week and I will be pumping as much money into the Senate as I possibly can to make sure the Democratic candidates win.

Trump’s Lawyers, in Confidential Memo, Argue to Head Off a Historic Subpoena – The New York Times

For a failing newspaper the New York Times sure has it’s shit together while probing deep into this dark and brooding White House. Let’s face it these are not confidential memos but rather Public Relation documents put out so that when they try to say the president is above the law they can point to these false documents and say look here it is.

Representative Adam Schiff of California said it best, this President, no president is above the law. And Donald Trump above them all it’s certainly not above the law. He and his corrupt family have infested the White House like roaches or termites. There will be a cleansing and just like Jimmy Carter came after Nixon an unlikely president will be our next leader. Who would have thought that the Great and Mighty Nixon would be replaced by a peanut farmer from Plains Georgia. Basically an unknown quantity on the political scene and yet he became president.

I watched Bernie Sanders last night on Bill Maher. I was not and have not been a Bernie Sanders supporter. I was all in for Hillary Clinton from the beginning hell I was all in for Hillary Clinton in 2008 until she withdrew her candidacy. And as much as I think that nominating someone of my own faith, a Jew, is a mistake I guess the same thing could have been said about nominating Barack Obama, an African American. Bernie makes sense for these times and if we’re going to Unite the Democrats we need to do it with someone who doesn’t seem bought in any way shape or form and Bernie Sanders is that. I never thought I would say this.

Just one more thing, just in case you think he’s got a great legal team, they cited the wrong federal statute for obstruction of justice in this so-called confidential memo.

Rudy Giuliani Admits White House Is Trying To Discredit Russia Investigation – HuffPost

Discrediting the special counsel is all there is left for this corrupt and decrepit Administration and its supporters.

The special counsel has nothing to gain from this and must remain quiet because he’s a professional and so are all the fine men and women were working with him. Donald Trump says he Mourns the beautiful young lives that have been hurt by this probe. Donald Trump you caused this probe, you colluded with the Russians to win an election because you are a power-hungry oligarch to be.

We the people of the United States will not let you become an oligarch and the best that you can hope for is a short prison sentence for your son Don Jr and you and your vice president, who was in charge of the transition, leaving in disgrace.

Did Trump Bribe Ukraine to Stop Cooperating With Mueller? – New York Magazine

I honestly believe that this white house does not understand that there is an internet, or even if they’re understanding of how information is processed in our Modern Age. Leaking dubious questions about the investigation by the special counsel from the White House is making George Washington spin in his grave. His White House is corrupt to the core. It corrupts everything it touches that’s why we see all of these cabinet secretaries leave in a walk of shame.

Robert Mueller investigation has been watertight. Why would he or his people leaked the questions they’re going to be asking the president? There’s nothing to gain on their part and why would they break such a tight seal that they’ve had on this investigation from the beginning.

Now you add this new allegation that the white house sold anti aircraft missiles to Ukraine to stop them from cooperating with the special counsel. Again do they not realize that there is an internet and that all transactions are recorded and we will see this eventually? I am so tired of the daily barrage of scandals coming out of this White House. I so wish to go back to the days of President Obama where we had a government that work for the people and not for themselves.

And just one more thing, he wrote his own letter regarding his health during the election. He made Hillary Clinton’s health and issue while he was lying about his own.

How low can he go? I don’t want to find out.
