Chuck Todd slams reports that DOJ briefed Trump on Mueller findings: 'This is actual collusion'

Source: The Hill




By Justin Wise - 04/17/19 08:43 PM EDT

................................................


"This is actual collusion," Todd said on MSNBC's "Meet The Press." "In case you’re wondering what does collusion look like, it looks like the attorney general’s lawyers briefing the president before Congress or the public.”

The New York Times reported Wednesday that White House lawyers and Justice Department officials have had "numerous conversations" about the details of Mueller's findings.

The discussions have allowed Trump's legal team to begin preparing a rebuttal to the report, which is expected to be more than 400 pages, the Times noted.

Todd went on to claim that impeachment proceedings would have begun if a Democratic president had been involved in such discussions, pointing to Republicans' response to former President Obama's comments on the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's email server.

"Where are all of these House Republicans now that were so up in arms about the president talking about Hillary Clinton’s emails, when what you have here, the attorney general briefing the President of the United States on a case that involves the President of the United States. What is the difference?” Todd asked. "Straight up politics.".......................................

Judiciary chair lays out 4 charges against Bill Barr -- that sound like Articles of Impeachment

House Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler blasted Attorney General Bill Barr at a hastily-called Wednesday evening press conference.

“The Attorney General appears to be waging a media campaign on behalf of President Trump — the very subject of the investigation at the heart of the Mueller report,” Nadler said. “Rather than letting the facts of the report speak for themselves, the Attorney General is taking unprecedented steps to spin Mueller’s nearly two-year investigation.”

. . .

“One, he summarized the report and cherry-picked findings in his March 24th letter to Congress,” he charged.

“Two, he withheld summaries written by the special counsel that were intended for public consumption,” he continued.

Complete title above:

US.Dept of Justice Report On The Investigation Into Russian Interference In 2016 Presidential Election Vol. I of II

The redacted report now sits on the justice.gov site for people to read.

It's PDF, so I don't think I can copy-paste any excerpts.

Mueller was unable to conclude that "no criminal conduct occurred"

Source: CNN



Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation was unable to clear the president on obstruction. The report states that the evidence obtained “about the about the President's actions and intent presents difficult issues that prevent us from conclusively determining that no criminal conduct occurred.”

Here's what the special counsel team said:

"If we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, however, we are unable to reach that judgment. The evidence we obtained about the President's actions and intent presents difficult issues that prevent us from conclusively determining that no criminal conduct occurred. Accordingly, while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him."

Jimmy Carter took call about China from concerned Donald Trump: "China has not wasted a single penny on war"

Former President Jimmy Carter told a church congregation this weekend that he had spoken with President Donald Trump about China on Saturday, and said the commander in chief was worried that Beijing had outpaced its global rivals.
According to Emma Hurt, a reporter for NPR affiliate WABE, Carter spoke of the call during his regular Sunday School lesson at Maranatha Baptist Church in his hometown of Plains, Georgia.
Carter, 94, said Trump was worried that “China is getting ahead of us,” and suggested the president was right to be concerned.
He told the congregation that Trump feared China's growing economic strength. Economic modeling indicated that China would overtake the U.S. as the world’s strongest economy by  2030, and many experts have said that we were already living in what has been dubbed the “Chinese Century.”
Carter said he did not “really fear that time, but it bothers President Trump and I don’t know why. I’m not criticizing him this morning,” he added, to laughs from fellow churchgoers.
Carter—who normalized diplomatic relations between Washington and Beijing in 1979—suggested that China’s breakneck growth had been facilitated by sensible investment and buoyed by peace.
“Since 1979, do you know how many times China has been at war with anybody?” Carter asked. “None. And we have stayed at war.” The U.S., he noted, has only enjoyed 16 years of peace in its 242-year history, making the country “the most warlike nation in the history of the world,” Carter said. This is, he said, because of America’s tendency to force other nations to “adopt our American principles.”

The cold fact is that the post-9/11 wars probably doomed the United States. I almost feel bad for Obama and Trump and whomever wins in 2020 in that regard, because they couldn't really do anything to stop what Bush II, Dick Cheney, and Donald Rumsfeld set in place.

For a country to throw away $6 trillion on an inconsequential war (that ultimately made things much worse) is always going to lead to that country's decline.


And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future.
