The Argument Dividing Democrats

It is in the vested interest of the GOP, and several foreign entities: Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, Israel, UAE, etc., that Donald Trump remain in the White House. The GOP knows Donald Trump is the end of their party, but his greed and malleability enables them to govern on behalf of their lobbyists and donors, and for their own self enrichment… they’ll stuff their pockets as long as they can. And they will lie, steal and cheat to keep him in office, for as long as they can.

Bill Barr was chosen to be Attorney General, by Donald Trump, because of his belief that a sitting president can not be indicted.

Because the U.S. has never been in a situation like this, there is no precedent. Nothing in the constitution, pertaining to the powers each branch of government holds over the others with regards to criminality within, has been tested… although a federal panel of judges dismissed all 83 ethics complaints filed against Supreme Court Brett I(LikeBeer) Kavaneugh when he was sworn in.

Robert Mueller is an agent of the Department of Justice, and as he explains in his report, he is bound by the DOJ’s Office of Legal Counsel guidelines. He says those guidelines do not give him the authority to indict a sitting President.

But does congress have that authority?

“Although the president has broad authority under article II, that authority coexists with Congress’s Article I power to enact laws that protect congressional proceedings, federal investigations, the courts, and grand juries against corrupt obstructive acts.”

Volume II, Page 160 👇🏼

In his report, Robert Mueller establishes multiple (10) episodes of prima facie obstruction of justice.

1. “The Trump campaign’s response to reports about Russian support for Trump” – the response was to try ascertain whether or not Wikileaks had more e-mails to release,

2. “Conduct involving FBI Director Comey and Michael Flynn” – asking Comey to let the Flynn thing go,

3. “The President’s reaction to the continuing Russia investigation” – asking AG Sessions to un-recuse himself,

4. “The President’s termination of Comey” – from the report: “The day after firing Comey, the president told Russian officials that he had ‘faced great pressure because of Russia,’ which had been ‘taken off’ by Comey’s firing. The following day, the president acknowledged in a television interview that he had been planning to fire Comey regardless of the DOJ’s recommendation and that when he ‘decided to just do it,’ he was thinking that ‘this thing with Trump and Russia is a made-up story.'”

5. “The appointment of Special Counsel and efforts to remove him” – “Oh my God, this is terrible, this is the end of my presidency. I’m fucked!”  After that exclamation, Trump told Deputy AG Rosenstein, to tell White House attorney, McGahn, that Mueller had conflicts of interest and must be removed. 

6. “Efforts to prevent public disclosure of evidence” – he tried to cover up the “nothing burger” meeting with a Russian lawyer, to get Hillary dirt. Mr. Trump ordered his aides “not to publicly disclose the emails setting up the June 9 meeting, suggesting that the email would not leak and that the number of lawyers with access to them should be limited.” He dictated a lie for his son, to say the meeting was regarding “Russian adoptions.”

7. “Further efforts to have the Attorney General take control of the investigation” – Trump still riding the Keebler Elf, also instructed him to investigate Hillary.

8. “Efforts to have McGahn deny that the President had ordered him to have the Special Counsel removed” – He wanted McGahn to say he did it.

9. “Conduct towards Flynn, Manafort, [Redacted]” – He wanted them to share information with regards to questions they were asked by SC Mueller. – tweets that praised them as brave and honorable.

10. “Conduct involving Michael Cohen” – tweets that went from “stay strong” to calling him “a rat.”

Were Donald not president, he would have been indicted— that’s a fact, Jack.

Mueller stated:

“With respect to whether the President can be found to have obstructed justice by exercising his powers under Article II of the Constitution, we concluded that Congress has authority to prohibit a President’s corrupt use of his authority in order to protect the integrity of the administration of justice,” ~Robert Mueller

How does congress prohibit the President’s abuse of power— through impeachment, or through indictment? Either, right?

I’m asking, because I don’t agree with what I’ve heard.

The argument as to whether it is within the powers of congress to indict the president, will be mulled over (pun intended), in the coming weeks… I hope.

Regardless, Trump’s obstructive actions, without question, are grounds for impeachment, and it is the duty of congress to follow through.

Trump’s many conspiratorial behaviors, covered in Volume 1 of the Mueller Report, are also absolutely impeachable offenses, despite Mueller’s belief that there is not enough evidence to indict— because of destruction of evidence, invocation by witnesses of the 5th Amendment, lying among witnesses, and limitations put on the SC.

Trump is guilty of accepting bribes. He has also been compromised with threats of a sex tape, which may or may not exist. The threat of one exists, and that has had Trump on edge his entire term.

“The conclusion that Congress may apply the obstruction laws to the President’s corrupt exercise of the powers of office accords with our constitutional system of checks and balances and the principle that no person is above the law,” ~Robert Mueller

Let’s assume (the impeachable) AG Bill Barr is correct, that Donald Trump, the acting president (and he is acting), cannot be indicted; there is nothing to prevent a president from being indicted after he leaves office.

He will leave office in one of the following ways:

  • Resignation- doubtful
  • Impeachment- based on a vote by congress
  • Election loss in 2020.
  • Hauled away in handcuffs- is looking like a pipe dream.
  • Dementia— he wanders off and is never heard from again.
  • The statute of limitations on the crimes cited in Mueller’s report stands at five years, Trump could be charged were he to leave office following the 2020 election. If somehow (Russia) he pulls off a win again, congress will have very little time to act.

    The argument dividing Democrats is whether to impeach, or wait.

    I had a discussion over lunch with a person who, like Nancy Pelosi, thinks we need to wait until 2020 and then indict Trump.

    The valid argument was that unless 9 republican senators commit to impeach, Mitch McConnell will shut it down. This person believes that this would unite Trump’s base… (they’re already united), leading to massive losses in 2020.

    So this is a political decision rather than one based on national security, of which Trump is a threat.

    My argument is that interference in the 2020 election is a valid concern, considering 2016, 2018, Brexit. The GOP is fighting every attempt to secure our elections, because the only way their party can exist is by cheating.

    And think about the damage Trump can do in 18 months. Look at what he has done in the last 18 months. He will push through more unqualified and unethical federal judges, and do what he can to change policies in order to protect himself.

    So what can we do? We have to see the un-redacted report; we need to hear Mueller testify, and we can only hope enough criminal behavior is uncovered that the GOP will no longer be able to pretend it doesn’t exist.

    There is no perfect answer.

    But there are always numbers:

    • 215 criminal charges
    • 38 indictments or pleas
    • 5 prison sentences
    • 500 search warrants
    • 2800 subpoenas
    • 13 requests to foreign governments for evidence
  • ~~
    • 20 ongoing federal and state investigations
    • 14 referred Mueller prosecutions
    • 2+ ongoing counterintelligence investigations
    • 1 pending impeachable felony charge in NYC
    • 1 pending impeachable felony before Congress
    • 100+ Congressional subpoenas coming


    The man who investigated Bill Clinton for 5 years, then impeached him for lying about consensual sex, releasing his entire un-redacted report to the public immediately, Ken Starr, says Democrats shouldn’t pursue impeachment of Trump because “it’s so bad for the country”

    Trump/Russia… Same as it Ever Was


    ~ Donald Trump, on learning Robert Mueller had taken over the Russia investigation.

    🎵🎼🎶And you may say yourself, “My God! What have I done?”🎶🎵🎼

    Bill Barr, Trump’s pseudo Attorney General, and White House lying spokesperson, Sarah Sanders, seem to be on an ‘I’m an asshole tour’, designed to diffuse Trump’s situation…

    Don’t let them:

      Ignore Sanders,

    • Arrest Barr.

  • How did we get here?

    🎶🎼🎵“How did we get here? 🎵 🎶 🎼 This is not my beautiful House.“🎵 🎶 🎼

    2016, Democrats were afraid to call Trump a fraud,

    🎶🎼🎵”Into the blue again in the silent water”🎶🎼🎵

    2017, Democrats reluctant to call Trump a racist,

    🎵🎶🎼Letting the days go by (same as it ever was)🎶🎼🎵

    2018, Democrats hesitant to call Trump a traitor,

    🎶🎼🎵”This is not my beautiful house!”🎶🎼🎵

    2019, Democrats are averse to impeaching Trump.


    🎼🎶🎵Into the blue again; into the silent water.👆🏼🎵🎼

    • 20 ongoing federal and state investigations

    🎶🎼🎵 “Same as it ever was”🎵🎼🎶

    • 14 referred Mueller prosecutions

    🎼🎼🎵 “Same as it ever was”🎵🎼🎶

    • 2+ ongoing counterintelligence investigations

    🎵🎼🎶 “Same as it ever was”🎶🎼🎵

    • 1 pending impeachable felony charge in NYC

    🎵🎼🎶 “Same as it ever was”🎶🎼🎵

    • 1 pending impeachable felony before Congress

    🎶🎼🎵 “Same as it ever was “🎶🎼🎵

    • 100+ Congressional subpoenas coming

    🎶🎼🎵“Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down“🎵🎶🎼

    Trump will not resign despite:

  • As per Robert Mueller’s report, any money Trump received while President, outside of his salary, is a bribe.
  • Donald Trump has been caught accepting bribes in exchange for political favors.

    🎶🎼🎵”Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down”🎶🎼🎵

    We watched Donald Trump obstruct justice in real time. These are some instances listed in the report:

    — Flynn investigation: “I hope you can let this go.”

    —The firing of FBI Director James Comey;

    —The firing of Acting FBI Andrew McCabe

    — Ordering Mueller to be fired;

    —Prevent disclosure of campaign emails about Trump Tower Russia meeting;

    — Ordered Jeff Sessions to end his recusal;

    —Order for McGahn to lie;

    — Indirectly offering pardons, in exchange for cooperation, to: Flynn, Manafort, and Roger Stone

    —Threatening Michael Cohen.

    All this, and Trump’s overall abuse of power make me wonder… why isn’t the self proclaimed deal artist trying to make a deal that would include his walking off into the sunset?

    He knows the presidency is keeping him out of jail.

    🎶🎼🎵”Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground”🎶🎼🎵

    Trump thinks he is going to get away with treason, as long as he stays in office.

    Trump is not a legitimate president, as such, he does not deserve to be protected by the subjective belief that a sitting president can not be indicted.

    🎶🎼🎵”Under the rocks, and stones there is water underground”🎶🎼🎵

    Very few items in the Mueller report were not whispered about on twitter. People who had inside informants with knowledge have told those who would listen most of it. This should not be a surprise.

    🎶🎼🎵”Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean!”🎶🎼🎵

    Why do 33% of Americans still support him?

    The billionaire bracket who don’t pay taxes have real motivation, all be it unethical.

    But what about the ones who vote against their own interests?

    🎶🎼🎵”Into the blue again after the money’s gone”🎶🎼🎵

    Do they support Trump because they’re racists, or to protect an embryo at all cost, but not provide for it once it grows into a child? Maybe it’s because they want access to machine guns, or maybe they think Trump is the guy from the Apprentice.

    🎶🎼🎵And you may find yourself
    Living in a shotgun shack🎶🎼🎵

    What ever the reason is, that leaves 77% of the American voting population who need to take action.

    What happens now?

    Do we have the luxury of waiting for the 2020 elections?

    🎶🎼🎵“Into the blue again after the money’s gone”🎶🎼🎵

    The Mueller report includes Russian hacking into our voting system.

    🎶🎼🎵”Under the rocks, and stones there is water underground”🎶🎼🎵

    Paul Manafort gave the Kremlin polling data from swing states: Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.

    Trump shocked everyone who had been following the exit polls, by “winning” those states at a 1% margin.

    🎶🎼🎵“Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down“🎶🎼🎵

    Do you think that was a coincidence?

    🎶🎼🎵“Letting the days go by, water flowing underground”🎶🎼🎵

    Nothing has been done to secure the elections from tampering… nothing.

    Ted Cruz beat Beto O’Rourke in an election that saw Texas go from red to blue.

    There were many reports of voting machine “glitches”, all in Cruz’s favor.

    🎶🎼🎵”Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down”🎶🎼🎵

    Russian media crows over Mueller report: ‘We will help you elect Trump once again — just like last time!’

    Our Democratic leadership knows Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, will block any vote to impeach Trump, once it get’s to the senate, that’s his modus operandi.

    Caught on tape:

    “There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump, swear to God.” Kevin McCarthy,

    “This is an off the record . . . No leaks! . . . All right?” ~Paul Ryan’s réponse

    Which brings me to my last thought: who is Barr protecting in the redacted sections of the Mueller report?

    Pence knew, Devin Nunes plays the guilty perfectly, Mitch McConnell has been Trump’s wingman since before he was inaugurated.

    Paul Ryan Keeps It All in the Family

    Republicans can not win an election without— gerrymandered borders, the electoral college, voting machines with “glitches“, voter registration purging, disenfranchisement— cheating. But somehow they still hold office.

    Despite the knowledge that the GOP cheats, democrats want to wait to impeach, until 2020.

    Can Democrats win back the senate despite republican cheating?

    Which Came First, My Migraine or the Mueller Report?

    I tried to read Robert Mueller’s report yesterday, with a migraine. I rarely get them, and I know you aren’t reading this post to learn what the symptoms of a migraine are:

    • blinding pain,
    • waves of nausea,
    • loss of will to live
  • As I tried to read the report I became more focused on pressure in my head, than I was on the words I was reading.
  • I was confounded as to why Mr Mueller would say his results were inconclusive… it seems to conflict with his statement “I can not exonerate him.”

    Was it the fog of my migraine that made this so confusing?

    The report confirms what I believe we already knew, but details Trump’s actions, his coordinated efforts with Manafort, Flynn, Don Jr, Kushner, etc, several Russian Oligarchs, and Putin. Why has Trump not been indicted?Trump is a criminal, that’s my belief— no, I am not an attorney.

    Which came first, my migraine or the Mueller report?

    I read without comprehension, and took breaks to check the news and twitter, to see what the general consensus was.

    I ended up following the Twitter feed of Seth Abramson. Seth is a Lawyer, and author of the book “Proof of Conspiracy”, which reads as a sister report to Part 1 of Robert Mueller’s report.

    I’ll add a link to the Twitter feed at the end of my post… did I just lose everyone to Seth Abramson? 🤔

    The string of Seth’s tweets began the night before Bill Barr’s announcement, covered Barr’s announcement, and then went onto cover the redacted Mueller Report.

    I scrolled back to Seths first tweet in the string and quickly caught up to the live tweets. He was reading the Mueller Report with a line by line analysis. This went on until 11:46 pm… which is when he finished reading Part 1. He had only stopped once, for dinner.

    In case you’re wondering, my migraine is gone today, thanks for asking. I do plan to go back to the point where I stopped reading and carry on from there.

    Regardless, today I would like to share with you—Seth Abramson’s conclusions. Again, he is an attorney who has been investigating Trump’s collusion for 2 years and, based on his findings, wrote that NYTimes best seller, “Proof of Conspiracy”.

    There is proof that Donald Trump is guilty of collusion and obstruction of justice. Mr Mueller’s investigation may not have met the standards, or burden, of proof required to prosecute Trump’s conspiracy in a criminal trial, however that is only because of the concerted effort to destroy evidence, and the rampant lying among Trump’s associates, Trump himself, and other witnesses; and, in my opinion, Robert Mueller’s investigation was ended before he had finished his work.

    Part 1, Page 10 Mueller Report 👆🏼

    Mueller lists the following impediments to his investigation:

    • Destruction of evidence
    • Invocations of Fifth Amendment
    • Witnesses and documents abroad
    • Department of Justice policies on attorneys and media
    • Legal privilege protected by “taint team” review
    • Trump’s people giving false or incomplete information
    • The scope of his investigation was limited

    Part 1, Pages 12 & 13, Mueller report 👆🏼

    For the reasons listed above, there was not enough evidence to meet the standard of proof required in a criminal investigation:

    The three standards of proof are: “Preponderance of Evidence”, which requires 51% or more evidence of the crime, “Clear and Convincing Evidence”, needs 70%, and “Beyond Reasonable Doubt”– in which you must find the evidence true with 90-100% assurance. Criminal trials require a preponderance of evidence (90%+).

    Donald Trump’s crimes have, however, exceeded the standards required to be impeached on many grounds. He is a threat to national security, a traitor to the United States, he was compromised by Russia long before the election.

    His unscrupulous ties are not only with Russia, but with Saudis and China, and Israel…

    As far as Trump colluding with Russia, we have evidence. We all saw it happen in real time. 👇🏼

    We also know Russia interfered with the 2016 election, and did so to help Donald Trump. Trump wanted their help, and accepted it. His campaign met with Russians to seek out that help. Trump and his campaign repeatedly lied about those contacts.

    Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort, gave polling data for: Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, to the Kremlin. Those are states Trump won unexpectedly, and contrary to exit polling data.

    Trump fired the FBI Director to stop an investigation into the matter and then tried to fire Mueller.

    👆🏼During the presidential campaign, in Trump Tower, Don Jr told a Kremlin agent that Trump would revisit the question of sanctions, if elected.


    Let me go back to Bill Barr. He lied. He lied when he said Bob Mueller left it to him to decide how to proceed with the results of the report.

    Mr Mueller clearly stated, the decision of how to proceed with his report should be left to congress:

    Barr lied about Mueller’s findings with regards to Trump’s obstruction:

    “With respect to whether the President can be found to have obstructed justice by exercising his powers under Article II of the Constitution, we concluded that Congress has the authority to prohibit a President’s corrupt use of his authority in order to protect the integrity of the administration of justice,” ~ Special counsel Robert Mueller

    Barr lied when he said Trump “fully cooperated with the investigation”: Trump and his campaign repeatedly lied to investigators, Trump fired FBI Director, James Comey, hoping to stop the investigation, and the only reason Trump did not fire Mueller is because the people he ordered to do it did not comply with his order.

    Additionally, Barr lied by omission with his heavy handed redactions at the end of Part 1, to protect Trump’s family, and likely to hide more damning information on Trump himself.

    Barr lied in several ways, he should resign, or be impeached.

    Congress has subpoenaed Bill Barr, and asked him to turn over all evidence and an un-redacted copy of Mueller’s report,

    ~ Based on Part 1 of Mueller’s Report, Seth Abramson explains under what guidelines Trump does meet the standards to be impeached:

    “426/ Recall the 4 categories of collusion:

    • Collusion (conspiracy): impeachable and a crime
    • Collusion (other crimes): impeachable and a crime
    • Collusion (national security threat): impeachable
    • Collusion (ethical violation): not impeachable and not a crime*
    *Political issue only.”

    All is far from lost, there are ongoing investigations, I believe Mr Mueller mentions 20.

    ~Listed by Abramson:

    “SDNY, EDNY, EDVA, CDCA, NYAG, NJAG, DCAG, MDAG, FBI, CIA, SSCI, NYCDA, and House committees (Ways/Means, Financial Services, Oversight, Judiciary, Intelligence). Some of these have multiple pending cases.”

    “144/ I want to note that *far and away the largest redaction category* is…


    That’s good news.👆🏼🤔👇🏼

    When Trump learned Robert Mueller had taken over the Russia investigation, he said:


    Why would he say that? 🤔

    Some of the facts already exposed by the Mueller Report will ultimately lead to Donald Trump’s demise:

    Trump knew exactly what WikiLeaks was doing.

    Tried to end the investigation, but was stopped from doing so, by his staff.

    He tried to cover up Trump Tower meeting

    Russia interfered

    Lordy, this is just the beginning.

    Barr’s Gaslit Announcement

    Q: When does an Attorney General make excuses for a person under investigation?

    A: Today

    Barr exonerated Trump of any interference with the investigation, due to Trump’s “frustration” over the investigation:

    “There is substantial evidence to show that the President was frustrated and angered by a sincere belief that the investigation was undermining his presidency…”

    Barr says Trump felt like the investigation was “interfering ” with his ability to perform his job as president. This is corruption in itself.

    (Meanwhile Trump’s staff prepares Airforce One for departure to Mar a Lago, where he will spend more tax dollars golfing through a long weekend. Prior to today the tab for his golf trips totaled $96 million. Is Trump’s excessive “presidential time” interfering with his job as president?)

    Barr ended his press conference after a reporter questioned him on his decision to spin his own version of the report. Barr shook his head, not unlike a wet dog shaking off water, and left.

    My questions were not asked:

    1. Was Barr chosen as AG primarily because of his letter, in which he stated a sitting president can not be indicted, because of his ties to Russian Oligarchy, or his experience in withholding information in the 1980’s.
    2. Did Mr Mueller abruptly end his investigation, by choice, or was ordered to end it?

    Today we were victims of gaslighting, the obfuscation of Mueller’s words prior to their release— Barr attempted to render the meaning of the Mueller report unclear.

    Representative Nadler, Last night:

    Rep. Nadler: ‘Attorney General Has Taken Unprecedented Steps’ to Spin Mueller Investigation

    Barr, this morning:

    We should see the heavily redacted, and color coated, report late this morning.

    Barr said no one in Trump’s campaign did anything illegal. Okay, Bill.

    I look forward to reading the actual report, and to hearing Mr Mueller speak for himself— when he testifies before congress.

    Safeguard 2020

    There is only one safe vote and that is a HAND MARKED PAPER BALLOT, along with random hand counted audits. Unfortunately the newest machines many counties and states across the country are purchasing, with tax payer funds, are not safe.

    Highlighted in the sale of these machines is “paper ballot”, but they are not “hand marked”.

    The difference is simple, they are vulnerable to hacking that can not be detected in audits. This threatens the integrity of the 2020 election.

    We know for a fact there was tampering in 2016 and 2018, so we can expect it in 2020.

    We have a right to secure elections.

    Call congress and tell them the only acceptable voting system is one using HAND MARKED PAPER BALLOTS: (202)224-3121

    New “hybrid” voting system can change paper ballot after it’s been cast
