Trump touting a victory after Mueller’s testimony once again exposed how dishonest, insecure and disordered he really is. The reaction had no basis in reality. His game of saying the opposite of what is true is transparent. So Republicans, wake up. Yesterday Robert Mueller answered, “yes”, “that’s true”, and “correct” to questions exposing Trump’s lies and acts of obstruction of Justice during the Russia Investigation.
He affirmed that there is evidence that Trump instructed his attorney Don McGahn and former Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski to pursue getting FBI Director James Comey fired. He found that there was evidence that Trump then tried to get people to lie and say he had ever made those requests.
Mueller told us that Trump tried to get James Comey to ” let things go” related the investigation into General Michael Flynn’s involvement with communication and financial dealings with Russia.
Mueller told us that there was evidence that Trump asked Michael Cohen to lie under oath about the payoffs to porn star Stormy Daniels in an attempt to influence the investigation as to his part in the transaction.
Mueller said Trump’s written responses to questions posed to him about the investigation were not always honest. He said Trump chose to respond that he didn’t recall information an excessive amount of times.
Mueller expressed concern about Trump’s public excitement about WikiLeaks hacking DNC emails and his encouraging Russia to ” find Hillary Clinton’s missing 30,000 emails. His exact words were, ” problematic would be an understatement.”
Mueller made it clear that Trump could not be indicted for these criminal, unpatriotic behaviors because of the DOJ’s policy that a sitting President cannot be indicted. However, he answered affirmatively to the question about whether the President could be indicted after he leaves the office. His voice was clear with a resounding “YES.”
YIKES. Instead of the media wasting air time feeding into the unimportant narrative that Mueller was no Al Pacino in his presentation, let’s digest the gravity of Trump’s disregard for the rule of law and take action to stop normalizing this assault on our Democracy.
