On March 22, Robert Mueller, who served as the special counsel on the issue of the Russian attack on our democracy, delivered his findings to the attorney general of the United States.
The attorney general is a Trump appointee; the deputy attorney general is a Trump appointee, who at one point considered wearing a wiretap to ensure the removal of his boss (Mr. Trump).
The Attorney General decided to clear the President of charges, one of which- obstruction of justice, Mueller made no de-laration on. Furthermore, Mueller stated he would not make any declaration on whether Trump was guilty or innocent.
The William Barr report, which was delivered to Congress March 24, contains no more than four pages of content. We now know the original report from Mueller report is longer than 400 pages. What is being hidden? I don’t know what is contained in the report, nor does anyone else.
The only person who knows the full extent is Barr, who was appointed by Trump. What I do know is if this administration wants anyone to vote for them, the voters will demand to see the entire report. Regardless of how damning that particular report, we have a right to see what secrets the government wants to keep from the people.
I am not going to suggest some wild government conspiracy, however, where there is smoke there is fire- and there is still smoke. We know several Trump administration employees are going to prison. Michael Cohen, his longtime lawyer, and personal problem-solver, his former campaign manager Paul Manafort who not only supplied a Russian oligarch with polling data on the 2016 presidential election but also was committing fraud from the federal government. These are two perfect example of Trump’s close allies commiting crimes and going to jail.
Then we get to the one man who committed a crime more severe than the others Michael Flynn, who committed treason by violating the Logan Act.
The Logan Act prevents an individual from attempting to create a backchannel with a foreign power.
Say for example if Mr. Trump was in talks with the Russian government prior to taking the oath of office, and they discussed domestic U.S. Relations, could one argue that is a violation of the Logan Act?
At what point does business end and law-breaking begin, with the criminality that we see every day from a President hell-bent on raping the piggy bank that is the Federal Government.
I and so many other Americans still want this president impeached. It is no longer about the victory and the white supremacists on the rise it is about the Republic, which somehow is still standing.
The soul is still trembling. It has to tremble a little while more but hopefully only until we decide impeachment is a political question and decide that it needs to be a reality.
