    Donald Trump - Possible Russian Collusion - 2016 US Presidential Election

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...robert-mueller

    Russia collusion inquiry faces a big 2018 – but will Trump let Mueller finish the job?

    Tom McCarthy
    Sat 30 Dec ‘17

    From his starting point in May through the end of 2017, special counsel Robert Mueller indicted two former top aides to Donald Trump and made plea deals with two others, including the president’s former national security adviser.

    Mueller’s work is almost done, the White House says – but almost no one else thinks that.

    Mueller is investigating alleged collusion between Russia and the Trump presidential campaign during the election. He also spearheads an older counter-intelligence investigation into Russian tampering with the election.

    Twenty-eighteen is going to be a big year for Mueller, former FBI and White House officials predict. They expect further indictments and, perhaps, a face-to-face interview with the president himself. They expect the investigation of the White House to run through the summer at least, and the investigation of Russia’s election-tampering activities to last longer.

    And that’s if things unfold smoothly. There is an alternative set of scenarios widely regarded as plausible, in which the president decides to fire Mueller or Rod Rosenstein, Mueller’s direct supervisor in the justice department. In such a scenario, a desperate struggle will be joined, in public and in secret, to preserve the essence of Mueller’s investigation, even as the national discourse explodes with alarm over what kind of slide the country is on and what is at the bottom.

    In one scenario, said Asha Rangappa, a former FBI special agent and senior lecturer at Yale University, Mueller uncovers evidence of criminality on the part of Trump personally, and then – what?

    “If he [Mueller] gets to the point where there’s maybe enough evidence to bring charges, there’s a big question mark on what he does with that,” said Rangappa. “Because it’s not entirely clear as a matter of constitutional law whether you can indict the president. So what does he do at that point?

    “It will create basically a big constitutional crisis.”

    They have found absolutely nothing on Trump that points to russian collusion. More than a year and millions of dollars of tax payer money wasted on angry, temper tantrum throwing Democrats. There is not one single stitch of evidence on Trump but because Democrats view taxpayer money as their own personal piggy bank this nonsense continues. And let me ask all of those under educated libtards, suppose Trump is caught dead to rights colluding with Vladimir Putin himself tomorrow? What does he get prosecuted for?

    It's called Treason

    Punishable by Hanging

    Looking forward to Fatso at the gallows

    WRONG. Collusion is not called treason. there's NOTHING, and I repeat NOTHING in the way of laws that would be broken.

    The president can be impeached for the following reasons:

    Bribery, Treason, High crimes, and Misdemeanors.

    Collusion does NOT constitute Treason and even a left wing guy like Alan Dershowitz has pointed that out to big name democrats over and over again. That's a lawyer that is on the democrats side very clearly that still knows there is NOTHING to this investigation. I'm sorry but the millions of dollars being wasted on this nonsense is just another attempt to try and make Republicans look bad when the fact of the matter is, they are simply angry because they lost the election. the democrats need to get over themselves.

    Dershowitz is a left wing guy just like you.

    Rump has committed 147 high crimes and misdemeanors in just his first season, not to mention his business crimes.

    Mueller is coming first

    Then the November GOP bloodbath

    And in January, Speaker Pelosi will announce Rump's IMPEACHMENT by a 70 vote margin in the House of Representatives

    I don't think that Donald Trump has done anything worthy of impeachment. But he's such a effing d-bag that I just don't care what happens to him.

    The only thing to prevent the November 2018 GOP bloodbath is if Republicans dump Trump and get Mike Pence in the White House.

    Or perhaps the opposite.

    House Intelligence Committee Votes To Reveal “The Big Ugly”…
    January 18, 2018

    The House Intelligence Committee voted today to allow all congressional members to view a summary report of classified documents behind the “Clinton Dossier”.

    As Byron York writes in the Washington Examiner: “At the committee’s meeting Thursday morning, Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., offered a motion to allow all House members to review a brief report prepared by the Republican majority summarizing the panel’s investigation into what GOP members call “FISA abuse.””

    The American people will find out this was dirty politics on Democrats. I hope this comes out as a sweeping vindication for Trump.
