    It is Trumps undoing. He has no control over Mueller, the report or Congress. I can see his resignation arriving soon. Trumps exposure now has built steam and will continue. A.G. Barr has recused himself in a contempt in that he can no longer act as Trumps A.G. or as his personal lawyer, as good as a recusal, for working purposes with Congress. Trump will be flat lining soon. His legal council and options are closing and will cease to function. As with Trumps Sister, the Judge, leaving her position ended her investigation on the family Trust Fund scandal.

      It shouldn’t end anything. Wealthy people should be as subject to the law as anyone else! Why else have a republic! Democracy at its heart, the American constitution is designed to protect the people. Wealth and privilege should not mean entitlement to act above the law!

    Just read that the Press Briefings are now being only allowed for certain people. Why isn’t this a public topic honestly. Yes we don’t see that as often as we should but when the WH puts a limit on what the American people should know. Yes Sanders no longer does Press briefings. But is should be said she is paid to INFORM us the USA… I’m starting to worry where TF our country is going if we let this man just do as he pleases. Nothing happens when he changes the norm. The GOP doesn’t care and that is sad honestly. There is nothing to stop him from doing what he is doing… The whole GOP is scared of Trump and his mouth. Didn’t realize that we hired cowards to take care of our government. Didn’t realize these people had no voice of their own. Didn’t realize these people only work for what will get them rehired.. Huh… Did they at any point think about the American People. Nope. Did they think about themselves. Yep.. Muellers report shows all honestly but now the Trump team doesn’t want us to see it. After saying OH were okay with it being released.. LMAO… He knows that it will not be good for him at all.. And with Don JR. Don Junior is a scam by the GOP just playing with people hoping to change the subject and make them look better if they actually try to do something. But they haven’t done anything and denied EVERY request that the Dems have asked. The GOP hasn’t turned over anything that the House has asked for. What are they hiding that they are so scared of.? Muellers report made Trump free of everything as the way he talks.. So let Congress and the American people read the full report.. LOL which won’t happen cause he doesn’t what US to know how much of an obstruction he did. Simple as that… And to the GOP.. Keeping control is it worth it for selling your soul? I get they are cowards cause they don’t want Trump to diss them but really..

    *PROMISES THAT TRUMP MADE — BACK IN 2016:*
    (1) A big, beautiful concrete wall. _Didn’t happen — he lied._
    (2) Mexico will pay for that wall. _Didn’t happen — he lied._
    (3) A ban on all Muslims entering the USA. _Didn’t happen — he lied._
    (4) Better and universal health care. _Didn’t happen — he lied._
    (5) “Draining the swamp.” _Didn’t happen — he lied._
    (6) “Full transparency.” _Didn’t happen — he lied._
    (7) A middle-class tax cut. _Didn’t happen — he lied._
    (8) An immediate end to all foreign wars. _Didn’t happen — he lied._
    (9) Every single other promise that Trump made. _Didn’t happen — he lied._

    The Congress needs its own detention facility to hold all the people who receive Contempt of Congress citations, since the Department of Justice has become the Department of Injustice. As I understand it, a finding of Contempt usually results in incarceration until the contemptible person rectifies the situation. Oh, the measures that will become necessary to restore the US Constitution to its rightful place in our government!

    Republicans project coup on Democrats impeaching Trump (preposterous right-wing propaganda, as impeachment would result in Republican VP becoming President)–while conducting their own coup against Constitution. Republicans–masters at playing Americans for fools while remaining derelict in their duties and gorging themselves at the public trough.

    Rachel Maddow is like the Judge Jeanine Pierro of MSNBC. I like my news to be a presentation of the facts, to be shown recordings of things that happened. Not to be “convinced” of a stand point.

    Everyone is saying to jail JR but think about it. Trump will just pardon his son.

    • John Swofford
      May 9, 2019 @ 7:32 am

      Trump can’t pardon him until after he is convicted in a court of law. Pardoning his son after a solid conviction will only burnish Trump’s attack on the rule of law.

    Redactions and referrals. IMO the natural procession for Robert Mueller, would be to pass that on to the CIA, NSA and more specialized intelligence investigative prosecutors at the FBI.

    If Trump thinks he and his so-called AG Barr can prevent the House or the Senate from investigating the Trump team, they have another think coming. Barr is due to be called in for lying to congress which is an impeachable offense. Beginning the impeachment of Barr might be the best way for the House to proceed against the Trump team’s assault on the COTUS.

    Someone should shoot this incompetent president right in the head . It’s not like it would be a great loss . America could get back to the normallity of government. He is the worst president ever and Barr is going along with this goose . Iff America don’t stand up to this incompetence now it might be to late in the future cause Trump wants to become a king or a dictator and I can’t believe it 40 percent of the public want him to . America needs to wake up before this asswipe gets his own way

    Can he still be charged with lying to congress? Maybe if he refuses the subpoena he’ll be charged 🤷🏿‍♂️.

    What is inside the jar with the
    $ 35 000 000 million lid on it
    I wonder what every democratic president and vice president with national security around the world is thinking about this circus. All the internal jokes and memes during a coffee break. When Trump calls you to make a trade deal, you hang up because sanctions.

    My guess is that Trump Junior is being brought in to clarify whether or not he knew the law well enough to be charged for the crimes that he’s been cleared from due to not realizing he broke the law when he colluded.
    That wouldn’t contradict the handling of the other cases, since he wouldn’t be asked to build on or defend any prior testimony.

    Nixon’s Attorney General, John N. Mitchell, went to prison. One of the charges against Mitchell was Obstruction of Justice.
    Barr has already headed down that same path. Once you obstruct justice, you can’t undo that.

    It is clear that Barr ended the investigation early. In January Mueller asked and received an extension from the Grand Jury. Why would Mueller ask for an extension if he was planning on ending the investigation early?

    The Republican controlled Senate just wants to bring him in so they can rig the questioning to show that there’s “nothing here, let’s move on….”

    People forget it was a RepubliKKKan investigation held in a 2yr window when RepubliKKKans controlled both Houses under a RepubliKKKan administration and a RepubliKKKan president. Mueller wrapped it up within weeks of Democrats getting control of Congress. Trump Jr. subpoena is a staged event cuz Donnie Jr. did NOT appear before Mueller. So it’s a pre-emptive strike to avoid Congress calling him forward, friendly fire.

    Rachel Raddow, brilliant as always! Congress has the right to investigate a presidency. What we see from Donald Trump is obstruction of Justice on all fronts. Oh, it would be so nice to see that man in prison for all the harm he’s done to this country.

    DONALD TRUMP SHOULD GIVE IT UP & SHUT UP . MULLER KNEW HE HAD TO WRITE THE REPORT THE WAY HE DID BECAUSE IF HE HAD PUT IT ALL IN THERE IN THAT WAY SO WHEN TRUMPS PERSONAL ATTORNEY GENERAL LOOKED AT IT HE COULD DECIDE TO HAVE IT SEALED & NOBODY WOULD BE ABLE TO SEE IT. BUT WHEN TRUMP FOUND BARR & GAVE HIM THE JOB ID SAY TRUMP ASKED HIM IF HE WOULD PROTECT HIM FOR A BIGGER WAGE OR PAYOUT . THESE MEN WHO HAVE A LOT OF POWER HANDED TO THEM , ONCE THEY FEEL THE POWER THEY ALWAYS WANT MORE . TRUMP THINKS HE CAN PULL OFF EVERY LIE.HE WOULD HAVE TOLD BARR IF HE LGETS BUSTED HE WILL PARDON HIM . HOW MANY TIMES CAN THE PRESIDENT PARDON PEOPLE ?, THE MOST POWERFUL LAW MAN IN AMERICA GOT BUSTED FOR LYING TO PROTECT A CRIMINAL , THAT BEING THE SO CALLED PRESIDENT .

    How can a person that is being investigated allowed to interfere in an investigation about themselves? If we tried that we would be thrown in jail.

    Americans deserve to have dictators and mass murderers such as Stalin and even Hitler as leaders because that’s what they’ve shown to prefer by voting for Trump and overlooking all the nefarious activity by all his cronies. In fact, most Americans do not appreciate the system of government we have and tend to want to destroy it by selecting the worst elements of white collar criminals to be their leaders. American hypocrisy is so huge that every other emotion pales in comparison. The fact that they can be basically bought into accepting immoral filthy deceitful frauds as leaders just as long as the economy is good shows that Americans are basically prostitutes and deserve every bad that comes their way, for being so fake and easily bought.
