      You betcha!!! Thanks, df.

      Speaker Pelosi has an extraordinary opportunity to educate, 24×7, every American to the vast criminality and threat to our National Security that Trump and his family and cronies are. MI 3rd District was crucial to defeating Hilary Clinton in 2016, btw.

        No problem!!! I hope she listens. I understand both points of view, but I am now firmly in the impeachment camp now. We can not allow this criminal fraud to go on another day longer than we need to. I don’t give a shit if the Republicans in the Senate show everyone in America they approve of this fraud! Let all of America finally see them for the enablers they are!! Let’s Go!!!

          ” I don’t give a shit if the Republicans in the Senate show everyone in America they approve of this fraud! Let all of America finally see them for the enablers they are!! Let’s Go!!!”

          Precisely, df.

          I’ll gladly give Speaker Pelosi a standing ovation for “building a head of steam” behind Impeachment, if that’s been her objective. But, the big problem with ‘a head of steam’ is that it can either propel an object in a specific direction or it can be a bomb that destroys everything in its impact zone!

      It appears she took a jab at Obama with the line “Leadership is more than a pretty speech”. Why would she throw that in at the very end of the show?

        Not sure I picked up on that. Hopefully it wasn’t about President Obama. That would be such a turnoff. Do you think she could have been referencing Joe Biden (not that he’s known for speeches)?

      • May 29, 2019 at 10:36 am

        I heard it as a jab at Bernie. He makes all of these “great” speeches, however, has no substantive plans and totally bombs interviews.

    Mueller making a statement at 11:00. WOW! Literally, truthfully find myself shaking and unnerved. For reasons I can’t explain, I don’t trust him. What an awful feeling. Time will tell…………little over an hour. 😦 😦 😦

  30. May 29, 2019 at 9:50 am

    Although it is not bad that Congressman Amash..get coverage of his defiance….there are a few Dems who have expressed this same defiance from the beginning…namely Congresswoman Maxine Waters and Congressman John Lewis….the media always has this love affair with white males..cause after all…it reflects back to the overwhelming whiteness and maleness of the press

    • May 29, 2019 at 10:07 am

      I don’t even know if I can watch. I don’t trust anything coming out of this disgusting DOJ at the moment. Not even Mueller if he follows orders not to testify in public.

      Every day we face an historic perversion of our government based on bottomless greed and lust for power. Trump has soiled every last American institution, including the rule of law.

      • May 29, 2019 at 10:29 am

    Mueller: “If we had confidence the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.”
    He mad some basic points including:
    – From the beginning, Mueller and staff decided unconstitutional to charge Trump with a crime.
    – Russia interfered with the election is a systematic way and Americans must be aware going forward.
    – Many examples of obstruction of justice and Congress must investigate.
    – Zero mention of ‘collusion’ because Mueller wasn’t looking for collusion.
    – Not enough attention to the first volume of the report. Mueller clearly disagrees with Barr’s ‘exoneration’ disinformation.
    – Muller constrained by DOJ decision not to indict.
    = Congress must investigate and pick up where Mueller left off.

      If there was any clearer example that Americans are lazy and want to be spoon fed, I don’t know what it is. That said, the visual of impeachment inquiry and stories in the news EVERY DAY might wake America up to what happened when they weren’t paying attention and make this more urgent than it is now.

      Robert Mueller has advised Americans to go back and actually read his report if we want to understand what happened in 2016. “We chose those words carefully, and the work speaks for itself,” he said on Wednesday morning, speaking for the first time since his appointment.

      But the words of the report are damning.

      “The Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion,” Mueller wrote. This help “favored presidential candidate Donald J. Trump and disparaged presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.”

      The Trump campaign “expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts,” and it “welcomed” this help.

      There is insufficient evidence to accuse the Trump campaign of criminal conspiracy with its Russian benefactors. However, “the social media campaign and the GRU hacking operations coincided with a series of contacts between Trump Campaign officials and individuals with ties to the Russian government.”

      Speaker Pelosi:
      (https://www.speaker.gov/newsroom/52919/)
      “It is with the greatest respect for Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the deepest disappointment in the Department of Justice
      holding the President above the law, that I thank Special Counsel Mueller for the work he and his team did to provide a record for future action both in the Congress and in the courts regarding the Trump Administration involvement in Russian interference and obstruction of the investigation.
      “Special Counsel Mueller made clear that he did not exonerate the President when he stated, ‘If we had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.’ He stated that the decision not to indict stemmed directly from the Department of Justice’s policy that a sitting President cannot be indicted. Despite Department of Justice policy to the contrary, no one is above the law – not even the President.
      “The Special Counsel’s report revealed that the President’s campaign welcomed Russian interference in the election, and laid out eleven instances of the President’s obstruction of the investigation. The Congress holds sacred its constitutional responsibility to investigate and hold the President accountable for his abuse of power.
      “The Congress will continue to investigate and legislate to protect our elections and secure our democracy. The American people must have the truth. We call upon the Senate to pass H.R. 1, the For The People Act, to protect our election systems.
      “We salute Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team for his patriotic duty to seek the truth.”

      I encouraged people on two different Facebook threads that “We are the one’s we’ve been waiting for” and we have to make them do it. Call, call, call the Speaker and others. Send messages online them. (I called Speaker Pelosi yesterday, then sent a message early this morning. Two people told me that Pelosi’s box was FULL. Good sign. We have to keep it up and make them do it.

    Wow.
    Chairman Nadler right away on Mueller’s statement:
    “The Special Counsel clearly demonstrated the President Trump is lying.”

    • May 29, 2019 at 2:25 pm

      – Special Counsel did not exonerate the President of the United States of obstruction of justice.
      – Obstruction of Justice, of which Special Counsel found substantial evidence, is a serious crime.
      – The Constitution points to Congress to take action to hold…accountable.
      – Special Counsel was unable to pursue criminal indictment. Nadler said he believes this policy is wrong and it prevented the Special Counsel from pursuing justice as fully as possible.
      – Special Counsel is calling on Congress to pursue and “we will do so”.
      Mueller ‘reaffirmed what is in the report”: Substantial evidence that Russia attacked, the campaign benefited, it was welcomed, Trump obstructed justice, undermined Mueller “over and over” again. Special Counsel did NOT exonerate. DOJ policy prevented indictment. Trump is lying about findings and (…see list). Barr too.
      “No-one, not even the President of the United States, is above the law.”
