Like an addict reaching for their drug of choice, I turned on the television set to hear Attorney General Barr wax lyrical about our poor benighted President and the complete lack of evidence of anything illegal……………
And I wondered how the Senate could have approved this scum-sucking sycophant for his position.
Does Mr. Barr not understand the job of the Attorney General is NOT being the lawyer for the President? How could he fail so spectacularly to heed the oath he swore? (yes, I know I answered my own question with the prior description of the man) His JOB was to be the Attorney for the PEOPLE of the United States. His job is to uphold the rule of law…not bury it under lies and groveling.
I am so tired of people in “high places” acting as if they don’t have to follow any rules but those they make up as they go along.
What ever happened to INTEGRITY?
I actually downloaded the redacted version of the Mueller report yesterday. I started reading it….it reads like a novel. It’s fascinating to see all the machinations of the people working with the Trumps during the campaign and election…and into the administration.
It was like reading a collaborative effort of Proust, Hugo and Camus………..with a soupcon of Hunter S Thompson thrown in for good measure.
And I realized that the ONE intelligent thing our idiot of a President accomplished was to NEVER TALK TO THE SPECIAL COUNSEL…if he had, I am quite sure he would have bragged about the laws he broke that didn’t have anything to do with conspiracy but would have him impeached and thrown under a jail anyway.
I do wonder what those things were…for in his own words if we had found out he would have been “fucked”.
The Mueller Report has a single paragraph in it that not only caught my eye, but caused me to read it several times….and it made me think for a moment..”ah, this why Donald is “fucked”…..
“Fourth, if we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President
clearly did not commit obstruction of justice , we would so state. Based on the facts and the
applicable legal standards , however , we are unable to reach that judgment. The evidence we
obtained about the President ‘s actions and intent presents difficult issues that prevent us from
conclusively determining that no criminal conduct occurred. Accordingly, while this report does
not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”
