I suppose just to clear everything up. Trump committed obstruction by saying mean things about Mueller and in general for being a meanypants poopyhead. I think that is what the Dems have on him. Obvious grounds for impeachment. I now agree with Amash and the Dems, he has to be impeached.

That ... or we amend the Constitution and make The Donald Emperor for Life.

Who do we pay to get this bill entered in Congress? I would never support it, but boy would the howling from the Dems and MSM be fun.

It was said in jest. Considering how long it takes for a constitutional amendment to pass (IF it passes), I doubt that Trump would survive long enough to see the end of the process.

But it's fun to think about the weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth.

Transcript in Mueller Report Was Selectively Edited to Cast Suspicion on Trump

Quote
The Mueller report quotes a transcript of a Nov. 22, 2017, voicemail message from the president’s attorney, John Dowd, to the attorney for former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

A full version of that transcript released on May 31 in the court proceeding in Flynn’s case shows that Mueller’s team selectively edited the transcript for the Mueller report.

The edited version in Mueller report conceals Dowd’s sympathetic tone at the outset of the message, cuts out language that would show that Dowd discussed two separate matters, and omits the fact that Dowd specifically cautioned Flynn’s attorney that he wasn’t requesting any confidential information.

In response to the edits, Dowd said, in a statement to an attorney who noted the discrepancy on Twitter: “It is unfair and despicable. It was a friendly privileged call between counsel – with NO conflict. I think Flynn got screwed.”

They are taking another crack at their failed narrative. Mueller will try and massage his message to Congress today.

The Daily Beast has a great succinct rundown on what these lying propagandists are trying to make people believe.

It is an incredible shameless piece of propaganda.

Fox News' Chris Wallace has just labeled this hearing as a "disaster" for the democrats and "Mueller's reputation."
A local radio talk show host has labeled this the "retirement home inquisition." >:D

Mueller does come off rather poorly from what I have seen.  I don't wonder at all why he didn't want to appear in front of kongress....I believe he just wanted to retire.

I saw people are guessing he's having health issues. He's apparently struggling with answers versus shooting them off as he did previously. Whatever anyone thinks of him, I'm sure this whole process stressed and prematurely aged him. I agree that he probably just wants to disappear and be forgotten at this point.

Sooo, another big fat nothing burger.
Fully expect the dems to continue to run with the narrative that since Muller didn't prove Trump innocent that proves he's guilty.

The wrap-up of the hearing was on the TV screen in Burger King where I stopped for lunch. I heard a voice but I wasn't watching, so I don't know who said it but I guess it was the Democrat chair of the proceeding. He was grandstanding about "unprecedented" Russian attempts to influence our election, and he said we have to "lock down" out election procedures.

Great! I'm all for it. Let's start with requiring everyone to show proof of citizenship before they can register to vote. No more "motor voting" -- you get a driver's license at the motor vehicle department, you go to city hall to register to vote. I'd be fine if ALL voter registrations were cancelled and we all have to register again -- with proof of citizenship.

Early voting? Nope. Why call it "election day" if you're going to make it election week? Can't get to the voting location on election day? That's what absentee ballots are for. Absentee ballots get sent by mail, not delivered by campaign workers. And they get returned by mail.

My guess is that we are going to see a groundswell of support for impeachment after this. Both sides got some favorable tv clips out of it, but the substance overall was just devastating to the president.

CNN commentator said that yesterday's shitshow did NOT do a thing for Democrats, and likely hurt them.

That's pretty interesting when CNN gets off the reservation.

Trump, Schiff said, has proven himself to be "unethical," "unpatriotic," "immoral," and "criminal."

I'll go for the reduced charge of President Trump "being a meanypants poopyhead," per Hawkmoon's analysis.

I think Mueller deserves a bit more credit than he's received for the most part. This was yet another opportunity to really drag the presidents name through the mud, and despite all of his supposed bias and hatred for Trump he did no such thing.

It was clear from the start he knew Democrats wanted to use him as a prop to bring the findings of his report to life as part of a push for an impeachment inquiry. Mueller went out of his way to avoid regurgitating the contents of the report, wary of creating sound bites that could be used to suggest he supported impeachment. For instance, when Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-Texas) asked him whether his language referring to a constitutional process to “formally accuse a president of wrongdoing” was a reference to impeachment, he refused to admit the obvious.

Mueller did that all day long. He refused to answer leading questions whenever answering the question might draw him too close to the political fight, force him to say things that could spur controversy, or cause him to veer outside the four corners of the report. Mueller wanted to go no further than his report and he rarely did so, despite both sides egging him on. He swatted away Republican attempts to elicit answers about the origins of his probe as readily as he ignored Democratic attempts to get him to make their case against Trump.
I see no reason to give more power to the state when it can reside with the individual.

“As states are a collection of individual men, which ought we to respect most: the rights of the people composing them, or the artificial beings resulting from the composition?” asked Alexander Hamilton. “Nothing could be more preposterous or absurd than to sacrifice the former to the latter.”

IMO, that was probably the best course of action.  I think for him, trying to favor either side was a losing proposition.  I am having a hard time putting into words why.
