Mueller should have indicted then allowed the supreme court to decide this issue:
But here’s the thing: There is not a syllable in the text of the Constitution that supports the conclusion reached by either the Nixon-appointed OLC lawyer that Nixon was immune or the Clinton-appointed OLC lawyer that Clinton was immune. The foundation of Mueller’s reluctance to indict is rotten to the core.
As I have written previously, both of the OLC opinions upon which Mueller relied have been described by scholars as “shaky” and “political.” Indeed, recent historical discoveries (of which Mueller might not even be aware) make them even weaker.
I think this is a fair question. Once again Trump defended Robert E. Lee because he knows it’s a dog whistle that incites his base. He will do anything to save his presidency including start a civil war. Trump knows that if he loses the election in 2020, or is impeached, that he will certainly go to jail. The only thing that could save him then is a revolution lead by well armed white supremacists.

It’s about time the NRA was taken to court for taking Russian money to give to Trump:
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) was sued in federal court on Tuesday for allegedly failing to enforce campaign finance laws against the National Rifle Association (NRA).
Giffords, the nonprofit organization founded by former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) after she survived an assassination attempt, sued the FEC for allegedly allowing the NRA to violate campaign finance law — including to help Donald Trump.
Impeachment is the duty of our government. We must demand it even if they don’t want to. We cannot wait for the next election in 2020. There is no guarantee Trump will lose. We must act like we are being occupied by a foreign power. Because that is what is happening:
One of the most challenging tasks Americans can undertake at the moment is to impeach the president for his myriad high crimes and misdemeanors. It’s challenging but we have no choice. It has to be done for a variety of reasons including and especially this: it’s almost impossible to simply name, much less adjudicate, every impeachment-worthy trespass by Donald Trump simply because there are so many.
The coverups started early and often:
Two months before special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed in the spring of 2017, President Donald Trump picked up the phone and called the head of the largest U.S. intelligence agency. Trump told Mike Rogers, director of the National Security Agency, that news stories alleging that Trump’s 2016 White House campaign had ties to Russia were false and the president asked whether Rogers could do anything to counter them.
Rogers and his deputy Richard Ledgett, who was present for the call, were taken aback.
Afterward, Ledgett wrote a memo about the conversation and Trump’s request. He and Rogers signed it and stashed it in a safe. Ledgett said it was the “most unusual thing he had experienced in 40 years of government service.”
We won’t stop until you are brought to justice:
Are impeachment hearings inevitable? Since a redacted version of the Mueller reports was released late last week, the talk of impeaching President Donald Trump has picked up steam. And if you watched the Sunday morning news programs, the momentum for impeachment is palpable.
Outright calls to start proceedings that could lead to the ouster of the president have only come from a handful of politicians—no surprise, all Democrats. And, so far, only three Democratic 2020 presidential candidates have clearly stated their desire for Congress to move in that direction: Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and, to a lesser extent, both Julián Castro and Pete Buttigieg.
Donald Trump is literally the head of an organized crime family. A family of grifters:
Over 448 pages, Mueller does not present Trump as a traitor but does portray him as a serial liar willing to abuse power, shred norms and bend the rule of law in a White House rotten to the core. Amid this culture of malfeasance and mendacity, trusted lieutenants are expected to demonstrate absolute loyalty, up to and including obstructing justice to save the president’s skin.
“He conducts himself like a New Jersey mob boss who is unconcerned about asking the people around him to conduct unethical or legally challenging behaviour,” said Kurt Bardella, former spokesperson and senior adviser for the House oversight and government reform committee. “Truth and accuracy just don’t factor into his thought process at all.
Idiot Giuliani is at it again. But defending Donald Trump means having to make contradictory and outrageous statements:
Surprisingly this article appears in the New York Post:
Their political affiliations may differ, but many of the ranchers along the Rio Grande are angry about the same thing — they don’t want to lose their land to the federal government.
“This isn’t about Republicans or Democrats,” said Rusty Monsees, who owns 21 acres steps from the river. “We’re Texans.”
Although he supports President Trump’s proposed border wall, he says he is worried about being forced to sell his land cheap in order to accommodate the new barrier.
He is one of thousands of landowners who are gearing up for a legal battle along the 138 meandering miles of the Rio Grande as US Customs and Border Patrol begins the “Border Infrastructure Project” to survey lands needed for a border wall.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on President Donald Trump and Russian meddling in the 2016 election was released with redactions by Attorney General William Barr.
