WE HAVE NOT SEEN THE REPORT.
FOX News has not seen the report,
CNN has not seen the report,
Bloomberg News has not seen the report,
CBS News has not seen the report,
The New York Times has not seen the report,
THE WHITE HOUSE HAS NOT SEEN THE REPORT.
Keep that in mind when you read headlines reporting “No Collusion,” “Trump Exonerated,” “No Russian Interference.”
We are bombarded with propaganda right now. Bots and Trolls are out in masses pushing a false narrative with the intent that we will believe the Trump/Russia conspiracy is over, and let it go.
Who has seen the report?
Robert Mueller has seen the report. He handed it over to William Barr. (I think I’ve been calling him Bob Barr, and now will go back and correct previous posts.)
Although Bill Barr has seen the report, he can not possibly have read the report’s more than 1 million pages.
How could he come to a credible conclusion in less than 24 hours?
How could his four-page letter to Congress offer answers to the questions that have been looming for years?
He has had his 4 page letter on hand since he was hired. He inserted fragments of sentences as quotes, taken out of context, to add an illusion of veracity to it.
Barr’s report doesn’t not quote a single full sentence by Robert Mueller. It’s a ransom note with cut and pasted words from a magazine.
The latest conjecture is that Mueller had not finished his investigation, but was shut down. Mueller testifying is the only way to determine if that’s true.
In any event, Robert Mueller did not recommend what action should be taken with the information. That is not the same as “Robert Mueller did not recommend any action be taken.”
Barr was meant to share the report with congress who would decide what to do with the information. Instead Bill Barr has buried the report.
The press have been told how to spin the story. This is not a free press.
The Trump campaign sent this memo to TV producers:
While the media is doing Trump’s bidding, the White House issued the following memorandum to allies as talking points for them to use when speaking to the press.
Trump is not happy that people realize he has manipulated the press.
In a UNANIMOUS vote, 420-0 the House agreed to release the full Mueller report to the public. Members of Congress have demanded the report. Congress has also requested Robert Mueller publicly testify, as well as Bill Barr, saying they will use their subpoena power if necessary to compel them to testify. No need, Mueller and Barr have agreed to testify, and it is expected to happen as soon as next week.
When questioned by reporters, Donald Trump squeaked: “I have no problem with the report being released.” Why did he say that? Because he knew that what would happen next would prevent it.
Last night Senator Mitch McConnell blocked the release of the Mueller report.
Let’s review why career obstructionist, Senator Mitch McConnell, is the most divisive and destructive politician in the history of American politics:
- He blocked Merrick Garland, a qualified federal judge from CONSIDERATION to be on SCOTUS. No hearings, just blocked, saying it was his “proudest moment” preventing a vote on President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland
- He refused to warn us about the Russian threat- pre election. He knew what the Russians were doing but refused to allow President Obama to inform the American people BEFORE THE ELECTION.
- He claims making Election Day a National Holiday, which would allow more people to vote, is a “power grab”.
- He vote not to end the government shutdown.
- Now, in what is perhaps his most despicable move of all, he is helping Bill Barr to bury the Mueller report.
Let’s call Mitch McConnell!
Here are his Kentucky numbers:
McConnell must go.
We need to see the report. At the very least, our representatives need to see the complete, unaltered report NOW.
It’s exhausting trying to discern fact from fiction.
Mueller’s loyalty is being attacked, linking him to Barr with accusations that this entire investigation was a charade that everyone was in on. “Corruption at the highest level” That’s just one story trying to take flight on the internet. It’s disturbing, but not credible, from the style of writing to the font, it’s not true. These are Russian tactics. This is an attack on our sensibilities.
Russian TV is reporting Trump is now “guaranteed a win for re-election in 2020.
Mueller Report Has Moscow in Ecstasy, Opening the Way for More Putin Plots
So, let’s calm down (I’m saying that to myself), and remember what Robert Mueller has done. He anticipated Trump would attempt to burry his report and he planned accordingly.
Let’s also remember Attorney General Bill Barr’s job application memo: He ruled out impeachment for obstruction of justice.
Bill Barr is the new Trump fixer.
As Republican’s uncork Champaign, celebrating a temporary victory, claiming exoneration, they fight to keep the report buried. This is not the behavior of innocent people. This is the behavior of criminals.
We have known Trump would do anything he could in order to abort this report. We also knew Mueller was planning accordingly. Remember, Robert Mueller is the man who took down the Enron Corporation, the Gotti crime family, and the Gambino crime family. He’s one of the good guys.
While we hoped it wouldn’t come to this, it has. We have moved on to the next phase. It was planned for.
This is exhausting. We are all exhausted.
I’ll use a personal analogy that some will understand more than others. Take a deep breath and bear down. My first child’s birth took days. I was exhausted near the end.
(FYI, self hypnosis for childbirth only works for the spouse in the room. It helps them block out your screaming.)
By the time the nurse said I could push, I thought- fuck you, just cut me open, I quit, this is bullshit. (Okay, I may have said it out loud.)
It was too late to walk away at that point, and it’s too late for us to walk away now.
Breathe. Don’t pay attention to rumors, dont share them. (I almost did.)
Ask for an epidural. Have some herbal tea. 🙄 (or a valium)
They are repeating a false narrative. Trump has not been exonerated. This is Donald Trump gaslighting the American people.
The media is not reporting at the moment. They’re repeating lies.
If Trump was not guilty of any wrongdoing they would release the report.
Congress will fight this, but that’s a long process and with Bitch McConnell running the Senate, it’s an uphill battle unless we win back the senate in 2020. Either way, that is a year away.
Right now we have what Mueller planned for. State crimes that Trump can not interfere with.
New York seems to be our Obi-Wan Kenobi, our only hope...
but we have so much more to hope for:
- the SDNY- Southern District Court of New York
- the EDNY- Eastern District Court of New York
- the EDVA- Eastern District Court of Virginia
- the U.S. Attorney’s office in Los Angeles,
- the U.S. Attorney’s office in Washington DC,
- the DOJ National Security Division, and
- the DOJ Criminal Division.
This is not over.
WE HAVE NOT SEEN THE REPORT.
But, we will.
