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

Source: Raw Story


BOB BRIGHAM
17 APR 2019 AT 20:48 ET


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.

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.

....big, fat, waste of time, energy and money - $30,000,000 to be exact. It is now finally time to turn the tables and bring justice to some very sick and dangerous people who have committed very serious crimes, perhaps even Spying or Treason. This should never happen again!

Elizabeth Warren Calls For Impeachment Proceedings Against President Trump

Source: Boston Globe



US Senator and presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren is calling for lawmakers to start impeachment proceedings against President Trump, saying he obstructed Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

In a Friday afternoon tweet, the Cambridge Democrat said, "The severity of this misconduct demands that elected officials in both parties set aside political considerations and do their constitutional duty. That means the House should initiate impeachment proceedings against the President of the United States."

Warren's tweet comes a day after a redacted report from Mueller's investigation was made public. The report details multiple efforts Trump made to curtail a Russia probe he feared would cripple his administration. On Twitter Friday, Warren said that the report "lays out facts showing that a hostile foreign government attacked our 2016 election to help Donald Trump and Donald Trump welcomed that help. Once elected, Donald Trump obstructed the investigation into that attack."

She said that Mueller "put the next step in the hands of Congress," adding in another tweet that "[t]o ignore a President's repeated efforts to obstruct an investigation into his own disloyal behavior would inflict great and lasting damage on this country, and it would suggest that both the current and future Presidents would be free to abuse their power in similar ways." -More...

Giuliani: 'There's nothing wrong with taking information from Russians'
 
https://www-m.cnn.co...nntv/index.html

That's a weird thing for Giuliani to say, since the redacted version of the report doesn't make an airtight case for that from Trump. It could be that this is in the redacted portion of the report, that mentions Roger Stone.

Mueller Report: 'At least one Florida county' hacked and accessed by Russian intelligence

Source: Orlando Sentinel 4-26-19


The FBI believes “at least one Florida county” was infiltrated in 2016 with malicious software sent out by Russian intelligence agents, according to the Mueller Report released Thursday.

But the Florida Secretary of State’s office maintained its elections systems weren’t hacked, adding that the FBI hasn’t told the state which county they believe was compromised.

Sally Yates: If Trump Weren't President, 'He Would Likely Be Indicted On Obstruction'

Source: TPM


April 28, 2019 1:03 pm


Former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates said Sunday that she believed the evidence of obstruction of justice in special counsel Robert Mueller’s redacted final report would be sufficient to charge President Donald Trump criminally if he weren’t in office.



“I’ve been a prosecutor for nearly 30 years, and I can tell you I’ve personally prosecuted obstruction cases on far, far less evidence than this,” Yates told NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell in an interview on “Meet the Press.”
......................................................

Yates said that while not all evidence of obstruction cited in Mueller’s report carried the same legal significance, as Mueller himself acknowledged, “there are several incidents that he described to which special counsel Mueller really couldn’t point to any significant factual or legal defenses.”

Trump fired Yates days into his presidency after she refused to defend the first iteration of his travel ban executive border that barred entry to the United States for people from several Muslim-majority countries, among other measures...............................

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to resign effective May 11
Source: Washington Post

AUB7ZRDKY4I6TPR2GMQXEQFFHE.jpg

Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, whose tumultuous two years as the second-highest law enforcement official in the government was marked by battles over the special counsel probe of President Trump, submitted a resignation letter Monday indicating he will leave the job in two weeks.

Rosenstein’s departure had been expected since the beginning of the year, but the date was repeatedly pushed back as special counsel Robert S. Mueller III wound down his investigation and compiled a report detailing his findings.

Since his first days on the job, Rosenstein’s role in the Trump administration has been controversial, from the firing of then-FBI Director James B. Comey in May 2017 to the conclusion reached by Rosenstein and Attorney General William P. Barr that the president had not committed obstruction of justice.

In his resignation letter to Trump, Rosenstein praised the president for his personal charm and policy goals. “As I submit my resignation effective on May 11, I am grateful to you for the opportunity to serve; for the courtesy and humor you often display in our personal conversations; and for the goals you set in your inaugural address: patriotism, unity, safety, education, and prosperity, because ‘a nation exists to serve its citizens’,” Rosenstein wrote.

Biden calls for everyone having the choice to buy into Medicare

https://thehill.com/...y-into-medicare
 



Former Vice President Joe Biden on Monday called for giving everyone the option to buy into Medicare but stopped short of supporting the full "Medicare for All" proposal backed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

Biden framed his approach as giving people a choice between government-run insurance and private plans. In contrast, the proposal from Sanders, a rival presidential candidate, would require everyone to be on a government plan.

"Whether you're covered through your employer or on your own or not, you all should have a choice to be able to buy into a public option plan for Medicare," Biden said in a speech in Pittsburgh, the first major address of his presidential campaign, which he announced last week.

"Your choice," Biden added. "And if the insurance company isn't doing the right thing by you, you should have another choice."

Mueller complained that Barr's letter did not capture 'context' of Trump probe
Source: Washington Post



Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III wrote a letter in late March complaining to Attorney General William P. Barr that a four-page memo to Congress describing the principal conclusions of the investigation into President Trump “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” of Mueller’s work, according to a copy of the letter reviewed Tuesday by The Washington Post. At the time the letter was sent on March 27, Barr had announced that Mueller had not found a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian officials seeking to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. Barr also said Mueller had not reached a conclusion about whether Trump had tried to obstruct justice, but Barr reviewed the evidence and found it insufficient to support such a charge.

Days after Barr’s announcement, Mueller wrote a previously unknown private letter to the Justice Department, which revealed a degree of dissatisfaction with the public discussion of Mueller’s work that shocked senior Justice Department officials, according to people familiar with the discussions.

“The summary letter the Department sent to Congress and released to the public late in the afternoon of March 24 did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this office’s work and conclusions,” Mueller wrote. “There is now public confusion about critical aspects of the results of our investigation. This threatens to undermine a central purpose for which the Department appointed the Special Counsel: to assure full public confidence in the outcome of the investigations.”

The letter made a key request: that Barr release the 448-page report’s introductions and executive summaries, and made some initial suggested redactions for doing so, according to Justice Department officials.

Pelosi: Barr committed a crime by lying to Congress

Source: Politico

By HEATHER CAYGLE and ANDREW DESIDERIO 05/02/2019 10:35 AM EDT


During a closed-door meeting on Thursday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused Attorney General William Barr of committing a crime by lying to Congess.

“We saw [Barr] commit a crime when he answered your question,” Pelosi told Rep. Charlie Crist (D-Fla.) during a private meeting Thursday morning, according to two sources present for the gathering.

Pelosi’s comment was an apparent reference to Barr’s response to Crist last month during an appropriations hearing, in which the attorney general said he was not aware of any concerns that special counsel Robert Mueller’s team might have expressed about his four-page summary of Mueller’s findings.

Barr’s response appeared to contradict the revelation earlier this week that Mueller himself wrote to the attorney general saying he was worried that Barr’s summary “threatens to undermine ... public confidence” in his investigation. Mueller also said Barr’s memo “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” of the probe.

BREAKING (CNN): Former DNI Clapper Says Trump Campaign "Aided and Abetted" Russians

This is what I've been arguing since 2017—and laid out in my 2018 book Proof of Collusion. Aiding and Abetting is a collusive crime, impeachable, and not an offense the Mueller Report considered.

That's taking it too far, even though this rule only applies to certain procedures such as abortion.
