Barr’s Interpretation of the Mueller Report is Just That

Bill Barr has turned out to be exactly what we were afraid he might be, another Trump enabler. Barr is protecting Trump. With the release of his version of Robert Mueller’s report, he’s stated that, if he does release the Mueller’s report, it will be redacted in such a way that anything negative regarding Trump will not be seen. This is propaganda by definition, misleading and biased.

*See the Bloomberg story attached.

Barr also quoted Robert Mueller:

“While this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”

Regardless, Bloomberg.com gave their story the following headline:

“Mueller Finds No Trump Collusion; Barr Sees No Obstruction Case”

Those are Bill Barr’s words. Barr’s interpretation of Mueller’s, words are not the same as Mueller’s words.

We deserve to make the determination ourselves, by having access the report we (tax payers) funded.

Incidentally, Bloomberg again shows bias in reporting by claiming the investigation cost tax payers $25 million. They fail to mention the fact that the investigation actually turned a profit when Paul Manafort’s assets were seized. Forfeiture of his real estate and cash is estimated to be between $42- $46 million.

Mueller Finds No Trump Collusion; Barr Sees No Obstruction Case

Congress has issued a subpoena for the full report and to question Robert Mueller himself. We have a democratic majority House investigating this.

This is not how we wanted the Trump/Russia investigation to end, but this is not the end. The fat lady has not sung. This is intermission. Act 2 starts tomorrow.

Let’s forget Barr for now and take a look at the SDNY:

The Southern District of New York has retained attorney Audrey Strauss.

She defeated Roy Cohn, Trump’s first mentor. She’s been called a mob buster. Since that success, she has had an aggressive focus on white collar criminals.

Additionally, Robert Mueller has turned over much of his information to the New York State Attorney General, for good reason. Crimes under state jurisdiction render Trump’s power to pardon impotent. That is the likeliest reason Mueller did not issue indictments for Trump’s family members.

DC, EDNY, EDVA are more jurisdictions where the Trumps may pay for their crimes, like their comrades:

Rick Gates case was transferred to DC,

Michael Flynn was sent to EDVA & DC,

Michael Cohen was sent to SDNY,

Stone’s indictment was sent to DC.

Justice will be served.

Let’s just wait for the fat lady. Let the process play out.

This is not over.

Mueller’s Report: No One Knows… a poem

~

Mueller’s report has been turned in, at last

On Trump’s Russia treason, the probe was vast

What was investigated? This we know:

Mueller found much and shared procured info

~

~

Treason, beyond Russia, to entertain:

Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain

Qatar, Israel, and the UAE,

Played part in this widespread conspiracy

~

~

Trump’s crimes, Mueller shared his gains

The Southern District of New York— remains

And Virginia’s Eastern District Court too

Financial crimes, RICO, fraud, the probe grew

~

“No further indictments” doesn’t account

For all Mueller shared it’s a large amount

Not to mention the sealed indictments filed

Plea deal inquests, several, all compiled

~

Trump tries to distract with his insane rants

He’ll claim to know he’s been cleared, but he can’t

We know less today than we knew before

It’s not over, we should expect much more

~

~

We wait for Attorney General Bill Barr

To sum up Mueller’s work, that won’t go far

The report’s been subpoenaed by Congress

No one knows the future, we only guess

~

My big hope lays in AG William Barr

That he’s not who Trump thinks, but Bob Muller

Planted him there, and he’s a patriot

In place to take down traitor idiot

Robert Barr and Robert Mueller, 1991

SDNY Charges Manafort

I ❤️ New York!

In federal court today, Paul Manafort was sentenced to an additional 43 months in prison. Adding that to last week’s light sentence brings his total sentence to 7.5 years. Today’s charges were related to his political consulting work in Ukraine, while last weeks were for federal tax evasion.

Rampant conjecture by talking heads, discussing the likelihood that Donald Trump’s pardon was a forthcoming inevitability, came to an abrupt halt when Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance filed 16 new state charges against Manafort.

Those 16 counts include mortgage fraud, conspiracy, falsifying business records, etc.

The most satisfying aspect of the move by Mr Vance, besides the timing, came with the knowledge that Donald Trump has no authority to pardon state crimes.

Paul Manafort has yet to be charged for the crimes he committed during the 2016 election, that can of worms remains sealed. He could also still face additional charges in other states.

Justice may yet be served.
