Mueller Finds No Trump-Russia Conspiracy – Doesn’t Exonerate Fake President on Obstruction of Justice


Salon

❝ The investigation led by Robert S. Mueller III found that neither President Trump nor any of his aides conspired or coordinated with the Russian government’s 2016 election interference, according to a summary of the special counsel’s findings made public on Sunday by Attorney General William P. Barr.

The summary also said that the special counsel’s team lacked sufficient evidence to establish that President Trump illegally obstructed justice, but added that Mr. Mueller’s team stopped short of exonerating Mr. Trump.

The fake president still faces numerous charges to come from Federal and State courts arising from the corruption uncovered in the course of this investigation. Corruption, sleaze, which remains meaningless to Republicans, racists, bigots of all stripes who will gladly follow their leader back into the 19th Century and beyond.

Nude selfie has turned up in probe of Trump and Russians


Is this the photo in question?

❝ A Russian company accused of bankrolling efforts to disrupt the 2016 presidential campaign says that a “nude selfie” is among the materials collected by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III in his ongoing probe…

Concord is owned by Yevgeniy Prigozhin, a Russian businessman known as “Putin’s chef” because of his close relationship to Russian President Vladimir Putin…

Concord is the sole defendant to appear in court in the indictment of Russian entities under Mueller.

So far…

Trump appointed a judge who actually pays attention to the Constitution

❝ A federal district judge who was appointed by President Donald Trump has upheld Robert Mueller’s appointment and constitutional authority in the special counsel’s case against Russian social media propagandists.

❝ “The appointment does not violate core separation-of-powers principles. Nor has the Special Counsel exceeded his authority under the appointment order by investigating and prosecuting Concord,” Dabney Friedrich wrote in an opinion published Monday morning. She was one of the first judges Trump placed into a federal court position.

Friedrich cited opinions by three other federal judges — Amy Berman Jackson, who oversees Paul Manafort’s criminal foreign lobbying case; T.S. Ellis, who oversees Manafort’s financial fraud case; and DC District Court Chief Judge Beryl Howell — to back up her decision.

All three judges also denied requests to invalidate Mueller’s authority…

Trump really has a problem with folks well enough educated to quality for their jobs. Especially when that education tends to support historic progress rather than regressive class-based retreat.
