    Last warning before banning
    Except:

    "By abdicating the role of prosecutor, Mueller cleared the way for Barr to take it on himself. Mueller and Barr were old friends. Several weeks before submitting the report, Weissmann writes, Mueller informed Barr of his intent to omit any legal recommendation. Barr didn’t object. Without telling Mueller, he saw a chance to disfigure the report into an exoneration of the president and thereby make its damning truths disappear. “Barr,” Weissmann writes, “had betrayed both friend and country.”

    Andrew Weissmann: America’s prosecutors know what Bill Barr did was wrong

    And Mueller? He was incapable of navigating the world remade by Trump. He conducted himself with scrupulous integrity and allowed his team to be intimidated by people who had no scruples at all. His deep aversion to publicity silenced him when the public badly needed clarity about the special counsel’s dense, ambiguous, at times unreadable report. His sense of fairness surrendered the facts of presidential criminality to an administration that was at war with facts. He trusted his friend Barr to play it straight, not realizing that Barr had gone crooked. He left the job of holding the president accountable to a Congress that had shown itself to be Trump’s willing accomplice. He wanted, above all, to warn the American people about foreign subversion of our democracy, while the greater subversion gathered force here at home.

    In our interview, I asked Weissmann if Mueller had let the American people down. “Absolutely, yep,” Weissmann said, before quickly adding: “I wouldn’t phrase it as just Mueller. I would say ‘the office.’ There are a lot of things we did well, and a lot of things we could have done better, to be diplomatic about it.”

    There goes any credibility. If sufficient evidence had been found, the Senate would have gone after Trump full bore.

    There was no evidence of Trump campaign collusion with the Russians. 2 years, $25 million and two dozen liberal Clinton Justice Department attorneys found nada...zip...squat. The prosecutions that resulted from this fiasco all were for process crimes that had nothing to do with the substance of the investigation. Many of the indictments have been dropped for lack of evidence.

    It was an issue fabricated by corrupt Obama FBI and justice department staffers using made up "intelligence" (Steele Dossier) paid for by the Clinton campaign and submitted to the US FISA court with misleading and fabricated evidence... Justice department and FBI officials colluded on undermining the Trump presidency at the highest levels--this isn't even debatable. Its all been proven. It also happens to be highly illegal and if a Republican had perpetuated this fraud and the illegal spying activity on a rival campaign all we would have heard for the last three and a half years is how its worse than Watergate... But the swamp has so far managed to shield its own...maybe not for long.

    Obama spied on his political opponents. That's what the Dems are trying so hard to hide.

    Hillary was absolutely going to win, so Trump would have sounded like a loon had he accused the Dems of what they had actually done. So, they’ve had to work overtime with all hands on deck to circle the wagon.

    If this nation had true, independent journalists we would have a scandal bigger than Watergate.

    The Atlantic is an enemy of the State and should be treated as such.

    Nixon spied on his political opponents. What Obama did was worse than that...he weaponized the FBI to spy on his political opponents.

    Watergate was only Watergate because Nixon was a Republican. There were multiple events and scandals during both Clinton and Obama's administrations that could have been 'bigger than Watergate,' but that's never going to happen to a Democrat if the corporate media can help it.

    Meuller was the figurehead that brought respectability, gravitas and unquestionable integrity to the hoax. His role was necessary to make the grift work. Weissman was the author and choreographer of the frame up.

    You must be smoking something?
    Weissman is knee deep in covering up a corruption scandal worse than watergate .

    And for the record, go look up some of the cases he was in charge of and what happened on appeal. He is known for malicious prosecutions where many innocent people went to jail, had their careers and reputations destroyed , but won on appeal . Go look at how they wiped their phones while investigated by the IG .

    Once again the facade of "fair mindedness" you attempt to deceive with is betrayed by your true nature. You are in denial of what is patently obvious due to a stage 4 case of TDS.

    Funny, the House Judiciary Committee, chaired by this loathsome individual...

    [​IMG]

    Can't seem to prove that and then put on a dog and pony show in which Barr made them look like the fools they are.

    You're not as independent as you claim to be...
