question one: Director Comey, has President Trump ever told the truth in your presence?

question two: Director Comey, in your humble opinion, what does President Trump appear to do at every opportunity?

question three: Director Comey, in your humble opinion, what are the White House press secretaries telling the American people?

In 1831, Charles Phillipon predicted Trump...

(It's actually King Louis-Phillippe, who was deposed in 1848 - but he is a dead ringer.)

Apparently, this matters because the transcripts reportedly of the audio reveal not only Trvmp Admin but members of Congress wanted Flynn to not talk (attempted obstruction) about this mess regarding ...
Flynn's messaging about Trump campaign officials talking about reaching out to Wikileaks...
an organization (?) that the Admin now calls a front for Russian hacking of DNC Hillary/Podesta emails etc....
yes, hacked = stolen...
which means that they knew and were coordinating efforts with wikileaks over the stolen material and were trying to not let that part of the info out...

and the transcripts are ordered to the DC Circuit Court by May 31...

and this all came out 16May, 2019 because the Special Counsel's Office just unsealed the Flynn indictment for that DC Circuit Court.
All legal, all correct. No leaks here. No fakes here!
This means what AG Barr's been saying the last few months... whether directed by Tramp or not,
is itself obstruction!

... and we're not even talking about the money, yet!

It seems your news has prompted Trump to scale new heights of incoherence...

"It now seems the General Flynn was under investigation long before was common knowledge. It would have been impossible for me to know this but, if that was the case, and with me being one of two people who would become president, why was I not told so that I could make a change?"

Before Tramp took office in the government he was told by people in the government that Flynn was in trouble...
but he apparently didn't want to hear the messengers...
and Faux news and Alex Jones etc. said the real problem was...
the messengers...
like Comey,
like Sally Yates,
like DNI Coats,
maybe even Obama.

But Tramp told us he believed Russia and Wikileaks....
An objective, charitable view might conclude Tramp was just incompetent...
just like he is in business.

"... Mueller’s report identifies multiple examples of conduct satisfying all the elements of obstruction of justice, and undoubtedly any person who is not the president of the United States would be indicted based on such evidence.

Contrary to Barr’s portrayal, Mueller’s report reveals that President Trump engaged in specific actions and a pattern of behavior that meet the threshold for impeachment.

Under our Constitution, the president “shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” While “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” is not defined, the context implies conduct that violates the public trust.

Barr’s misrepresentations are significant but often subtle, frequently taking the form of sleight-of-hand qualifications or logical fallacies, which he hopes people will not notice.
In comparing Barr’s principal conclusions, congressional testimony, and other statements to Mueller’s report, it is clear that Barr intended to mislead the public about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s analysis and findings.

I offer these conclusions only after having read Mueller’s redacted report carefully and completely, having read or watched pertinent statements and testimony, and having discussed this matter with my staff, who thoroughly reviewed materials and provided me with further analysis.

Here are my principal conclusions:
1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report.
2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct.
3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances.
4. Few members of Congress have read the report."

ONE. MORE. TIME. FOR. THE. WORLD.:

Caputh, you keep sinking (almost willingly?!) into quicksand since NOTHING you've stated above detracts from the below FACTS:


RETURN. OF. THE. RETURN. OF. THE. RETURN. OF. THE. RETURN. OF. THE. SON. OF. ONE. MORE. TIME. FOR. THE. WORLD.:

There is NO evidence proving Trump/Russian collusion or obstruction of justice (especially for a crime that did NOT even happen).

RETURN. OF. THE. SON. OF. ONE. MORE. TIME. FOR. THE. WORLD.:

Also, and again, as evidenced in Barr's televised testimony, when Barr phoned Mueller to ask him about his complaint, Mueller confirmed that it had NOTHING to do with Barr's summary being incorrect, but instead had to do with Barr not including the media's coverage in his summary. That's IT. And hence, this renders your above summaries to be moot points. Especially since Mueller did NOT recommend ANY further indictments, or complain or state after his phone call with Barr or after Barr's televised testimony that Barr's summary was inaccurate. Not only that but it's NOT even Mueller's job to exonerate - it's his job to investigate and present his findings. And lastly, Barr wasn't even required to release Mueller's report. :roll:

When I first saw this , I assumed you were trying to make some sort of correlation between my quote and a somewhat recent political cartoon about Trump losing almost a billion dollars as if that was some sort of new revelation.

Then I realized that you just post political cartoons with no regard for the validity of the content .
If it's left leaning , you post it.

If you could speak for yourself , you would have done some research and found that Trump himself talked about the subject matter in the above inaccurate cartoon you posted, in a book called ' The Art Of The Comeback ' from 1997 !

Kinda makes that cartoon , and you , pretty lame.

Pedro, there's really no need for you to put yourself through any mental gymnastics - besides, you might injure your brain. :roll:

I'll explain: I posted the cartoon and the quote because of the Wizard of Oz connection - and for no other reason. 8)

At the news last night, I saw Biden's speech.
He seems OK at first.
I particulary dig when he said that Trump inherited a strong Obama economy.
It was given to him... like all the rest in his life.

Well, Trump engaged in a coverup ?
OMG, could it be ?
:roll:

Coverup, makeup, fuckup, call it what you want...
That clown has to go.
:smoke:
Unfortunately, his fan base of stupid folks would see an impeachment as an insult
when it should be seen as a much needed cleaning up.

Can't bear to see him anymore on TV and hear his arrogant voice.
Only an idiot can tolerate his repeated excuses.

Yeah, that's the way of an innocent man !
:roll:

Down with Trump. Get yourself a President, a real one, not a poor imitation.
