Mueller statement
 
Quote:

Special Counsel Robert Mueller just said that "charging the president with a crime was not an option we could consider" under DOJ policy.
Quote:

If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so,”
That's not what Barr said... :coffee:

YEAH BUT IF HE FOUND A CRIME HE WOULD HAVE CHARGED HIM RIGHT STFU LIBTARDS.

I don't know what more you need. He said it in the report. He said it out loud. Charging Trump was never an option for him, so he did not. The next step is Congress's job. His actual words.

I agree so let's get this impeachment going already. I am sick of hearing about it. Do it or not.

patswin 05-29-2019 11:06 AM

LOL. He said read the report and I’ve resigned. Slow news day. LOL

Anyone else think what a stammering fool?
What a useless 8 minutes.
JMO.

Is there something wrong with your comprehension? He was very clear that he could NOT charge him with a crime under DOJ regulations. He was also very clear that there certainly was enough there to charge him if allowed to.

He also made it very clear that it was up to others to pursue the matter that he presented in his report, clearly stated by him, and precisely NOT what Barr said, and he was handing this over to Congress with a clear roadmap to obstruction.

He also said NOT that he wouldn't testify before Congress in one of his first sentences "This will likely not be the last time you hear from me."

THIS public statement had multiple meanings, one of which was so that he wouldn't have to testify publicly, because he is apolitical and has integrity, but now could justifiably testify behind closed doors, as is his preference.

For those of you who think this was nothing, his words were carefully calculated and actually quite explosive.

What's the most disturbing is that he made it painfully clear in the beginning and ended with what nobody wants to talk about...the fact that there was significant interference in our election. There was interference against a presidential candidate. There was interference online, by Russians posing as Americans, by social media, by data manipulation.

And yet, $120 million is sitting there waiting to be spent on cybersecurity, and not one penny has been released for it to be used. And yet, the cybersecurity department has been disbanded.

It will be done again, and it will be done with this president's blessing.

His exact words were
I hope and expect this to be the only time that I will speak about this matter. I am making that decision myself—no one has told me whether I can or should testify or speak further about this matter.

There has been discussion about an appearance before Congress. Any testimony from this office would not go beyond our report. It contains our findings and analysis, and the reasons for the decisions we made. We chose those words carefully, and the work speaks for itself.


The report is my testimony. I would not provide information beyond that which is already public in any appearance before Congress.

AnOldTroll 05-29-2019 12:56 PM

But that white space in between... that's the explosive shit.

For 2 years... He's gonna be charged with colluding and treason...

AnOldTroll 05-29-2019 01:02 PM

Above all, what a fucking waste of tax dollars.

Coltsfan2theend 05-29-2019 01:23 PM

Just try to impeach him for the 10th or so time and see how far it gets. It may get out of Congress, but won’t happen in senate (the ones who remove from office). If it happens, it will be another bill Clinton, except people will be annoyed at democrats, which is why they haven’t really tried to impeach him yet.

For the Nth time, what tax dollars?

Manafort's assets covered the investigation times two. And now Manafort's condo at Trump Tower has been put for sale by DOJ.

So...no tax dollars. Though I'm sure Trump will continue to pursue that lie continuously, as he already has.

Mueller said that his options never included indicting Trump- because a DOJ memo said no, and because (as Baron and others have opined) it was not Constitutional.
So Mueller not indicting Trump is a 'nothing'- it was never going to happen. It isn't a win or a loss for either faction.
Mueller ALSO said that if they could have exonerated Trump, they would have. And they did NOT do that.

So, could not indict and therefore didn't. Could have exonerated if warranted and did not.

Criminal, but requiring a political remedy.

So Russians tried to convince people through FB to vote for Trump is “interfering”?
Man, imagine what those who live in central and South America call US interference in their elections.
Using social media to influence an election may be the weakest form of interference imaginable.
