More than two years after the election of Trump to the presidency, U.S. Attorney General William Barr released a letter Sunday with ‚Äúprincipal conclusions‚ÄĚ of Special Counsel Robert Mueller‚Äôs investigation apparently vindicating the president against allegations of collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign.
‚ÄúThe special counsel‚Äôs investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its effort‚ÄĚ to interfere with the 2016 presidential election, stated Barr‚Äôs letter to lawmakers on Capitol Hill....
An interesting opinion piece on why we should wait for a lot more of the Mueller report being brought to light. The author got into trouble publishing a secrets-free book, on Vietnam but didn't get the CIA permission to do it. So, he's got some insight into the problem of material that isn't exposed to light yet.

‚ÄúWe shouldn‚Äôt draw the conclusion,‚ÄĚ he recently said on Morning Joe, ‚Äúthat if you ask for the assistance of an adversary, you receive it, you benefit from it, and you reward it, you‚Äôre okay. Because, you know what? It‚Äôs going to be a greenlight for people to do it again.‚ÄĚ

I still attend Saturday Vigil Mass at the local Catholic parish. This past Sunday at my Baptist Church the sermon by Pastor Steve was titled "Jesus Green Mile" about Jesus riding a donkey on Palm Sunday and about Him carrying the cross to Jerusalem for His crucifixion.
I bet ten thousand people have gotten saved reading Jim‚Äôs continual criticism of Republicans. For a man who often talks about the importance of evangelism, he apparently isn‚Äôt doing anything about it.
Besides, the Republicans already have bizarre leaders.

George Will and others have pointed out that the Mueller's report is a gift to the Democrats--if they can control their love for bizarre
George Will wrote: Robert Mueller's report is a gift to the nation, which now knows what was already a reasonable surmise: that its chief executive's unlovely admiration for a repulsive foreign regime, Vladimir Putin's, is more a dereliction of taste and judgment than evidence that he is under that regime's sway.
The report is an even larger gift to the nation because it might help stabilize the Democratic Party -- if the party reacts more reasonably to it than most of the party's most conspicuous presidential candidates have been reacting to the political stimuli of 2019. What Mueller's report makes possible is something like a normal presidential election in 2020....

Not happening, John. There's just too much on the public record, from Trader Trump himself for any apology even to be needed. The Mueller report never even said that Trump was innocent

Christopher, This past Sunday at my Baptist Church there was a man and wife Missionary team who spoke during the time of the sermon. They gave their life stories. My Baptist Church is going to sponsor that man and wife Missionary team. It was very educational listening to that man and wife Missionary team.

It will be entertaining if lot of this continues during or after Presidency
Good points, WP of Lubbock, Texas, it works when your last name is Clinton and first name is Hilary. A friend told me of the scene he saw on CNN yesterday in a fast food restaurant that regularly has only that channel airing. It was apparent the there was much 'gnashing of teeth' going on among the Big Panel of Experts they had convened. I can just imagine if Obama instead of Trump was the object of their scorn--right away there would be Race Riots in the streets, encouraged by his black (and some white and some self-hating Jewish) apologists, who will not allow One Single Word of Criticism of the High Poo-Bah.
I still don‚Äôt know how you can set up a it system in your basement, allow your computer to be hacked and immediately notify your friends in the FBI and question your opponent as to whether he‚Äôs colluding with the Russians. Oh, never mind.
You have to handed to the Dems how they stick to the narrative. They never let the facts nor the truth get in their way. They do the same thing with what is and isn't life, what is or isn't male or female, what is or isn't marriage. The sad thing is the number of people who continue to listen to their swill.
I would also like to have Mueller brought into Congress and questioned by someone like Sen Graham. If it was me asking the questions: First I would thank him for his thorough investigation and summary of his findings. Then I would ask him to give his opinion of whether now, in hindsight, if the whole thing was worthy of his time and effort (and our money). If he would consider if he and the position of Special Counsel was used politically. That more caution be used in advocating for use of a Special Counsel. If he would recommend that Congress have hearings to investigate if FISA was misused by the Justice Dept. And finally, since the primary piece of evidence (the infamous dossier) originated with the other campaign if he would recommend that she be thoroughly investigated to see if her actions would rise to the point of Special Counsel; and would he lead if that was the case.
Maxine Waters is unhinged, as she drinking in the Spiritual Pride of Sin, as she is such a good person. She must get her bottles water from the basement location located in Lincoln!
Gal 1:6-9 I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.
Here‚Äôs a great idea! Let‚Äôs take four old biddies who are spiritually as well as politically blind, women who cannot see the truth when it flashes like lightning before them, common, potty-mouthed ne‚Äôer-do-wells with no vision for actually improving society, and give them a talk show. What will we call this daily presentation of The Four Blind Mice? Why, ‚ÄúThe View,‚ÄĚ of course!

"But did Trump somehow obstruct justice in connection with the claims?
Barr‚Äôs letter says Mueller‚Äôs team could not reach a solid conclusion. ‚ÄúThe Special Counsel therefore did not draw a conclusion ‚Äď one way or the other ‚Äď as to whether the examined conduct constituted obstruction,‚ÄĚ the letter indicated."
Utter nonsense, and how did Mueller satisfy the crowd, knowing that he had bad news to deliver to them, 2yrs, and like $25M in taxpayer dollars later? Paraphrasing, he says that after almost 2yrs of exhaustive investigation with unlimited financial, law enforcement, and data gathering resources at their disposal, and after interviewing, and extorting hundreds of witnesses, leaving no stone unturned, and no piece of raw data, unanalyzed, in order to try and satisfy Trump's haters with a red stamp that reads, "Guilty!", the verdict is, no crime was committed. However, that comes with a Mueller caveat. Mueller knows the liberals are gonna flip, because, afterall, Mueller was their knight in shining armor...their savior; their hope. The report's caveat is that while no evidence of any crime or collusion was found, he can't say with certainty that there was no collusion or crime committed.
Unreal, and of course, this is what they're running with...open-ended nonsense.

The head of the FBI is part of the executive branch. He serves at the pleasure of the President (whomever that may be). The President can fire him at any time for any reason, that is part of his executive powers. Schumer, Pelosi, and Maxine Waters called for Comer to be fired back in October of the previous year. Thus Jim's quote is again bogus as there is no obstruction when the administration is doing what is granted in the Constitution.
