“While this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”New Yorker Editor David Remnick
Will we ever see the light of day?
We doubt it. The royal ‘we’ seems fitting here, because the conspiracy to re-elect Donald Trump stretches now to his attorney general, a guttersnipe named Bill Barr, who by dint of his oleaginous underpinnings, has uprooted democracy and the rule of law to favor a man who is, by definition, mentally unhinged and most assuredly a Russian asset. A useful idiot in the parlance of the old KGB.
“Barr, who took office as Attorney General last month, writes that Mueller, the special counsel, determined that no one associated with the Trump campaign conspired with the Russians in what all the leading intelligence agencies have determined was a concerted effort to manipulate the 2016 election to hurt Hillary Clinton and help Donald Trump.”
New Yorker Editor David Remnick
There are no precedents for what is happening in the United States of America. This is uncharted territory that we’re treading here folks.
An attorney general of the USA is openly conspiring with a president to entrench the views of that race baiting, lying, crooked piece of shit, Donald Trump.
“After a long investigation, after so many people have been so badly hurt, after not looking at the other side, where a lot of bad things happened, a lot of horrible things happened, a lot of very bad things happened for our country, it was just announced there was no collusion with Russia, the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard,” he said. “There was no collusion with Russia. There was no obstruction, and none whatsoever, and it was a complete and total exoneration. It’s a shame that our country had to go through this. To be honest, it’s a shame that your President has had to go through this; before I even got elected, it began. And it began illegally! And hopefully someone’s going to look at the other side. This was an illegal takedown that failed.”Donald Trump – Racist and Crook
Why is Barr suborning treason?
Why is the attorney general covering up the Mueller report? Why won’t Mitch McConnell allow congress and the senate access to the full report. Well, we know that McConnell is a stone cold acolyte and sycophant for the president, not because he has any respect for the malignant narcissist, but rather because Trump has captured the heart of a base that the Republican Party needs if it is to remain in power.
The GOP has sacrificed respect and ethics for political expediency. They have collapsed their peripheral view to a tunneled aspect skewed toward a new party fabric that now consists of a deplorable base of white supremacist, mad evangelicals and a mercenary underclass of survivalists. It is a new base that is so vile as to bugger belief.
This vanguard of fascists and unenclosed bigots stands in bas-relief to the Democratic Party, which at its heart encompasses the only way forward for America. The electoral college is the only lifeline remaining for McConnell and his GOP.
No electoral college? NO GOP presidency for the next two decades. The GOP have lost the popular vote and they have abandoned the popular consensus.
There is no way back, because the Republican congress have sold their collective souls to Trump.
They met Satan at the crossroads and are now embroiled in a Faustian bargain with a sociopath so engrossed in self-interest that he has threatened civil war should his plans be challenged.
The obstruction of justice issue, however, is too important to be dismissed by a Trump-appointed AG with a predetermined view on presidential accountability to the rule of law. We need to see the report.John Brennan , former CIA Director – Tweet
Maybe 2020 is too late? Impeach Now!
The time is now people.
The rule of law, yes that rule of law, which proscribes decency, fairness and truth, has been eroded by a Mafia Don, and his Capos, his lickspittles, his acolytes and his henchmen.
Fascism grows in a void and is abetted by power hungry apparatchiks who seek not the democratic solution but instead abandon all hope in favour of the autocracy.
This was never America.
But it is now.
