1. Mueller was an FBI Director and as such has information about all your activities
2. Any investigations into Russian involvement had to look at Congressional delegations going to Russia and involving contacts with Russians. Requests to meet with Putin and Putin refused to meet with them.
“Let he who is without sin through the first stone….”
In Volume II of the Mueller report there were twelve acts of obstruction outlined, proven by forty one items of evidence. Based upon those findings Over 700 federal prosecutors have said that this was a slam dunk case of obstruction of justice by the President.
If that’s the case, why didn’t Special Prosecutor Mueller charge or indict President Trump? The answer is that there is a Department of Justice policy that prohibits indicting a sitting President. That leaves two choices for dealing with a President who commits demonstrably criminal acts.
First, the Special Prosecutor investigates, outlines, enumerates, and provides the evidence to the Congress so that they can exercise their duty to oversee the executive branch by whatever means they see fit.
Second, he can preserve the evidence so that the President, after he’s out of office can be indicted and tried. The problem with this solution is the issue of the applicable “statute(s) of limitations “.
Next post we will look at the President’s first act of obstruction.
According to the psychologist Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, basic needs food, water, warmth, a job, and roof over our heads must be met before we address higher psychological and self-fulfillment needs. This would explain why so few have actually read the Mueller Report which addresses the Russian attack on our country which is arguably as great an attack as the British attempt to burn the Capital, Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor, or the Al-Qaeda attack on the Twin Towers.
To address this I am offering a simplified version in bite sized amounts.
The Mueller Report has two volumes.
Volume I of the report addresses whether Russia attempted to interfere in our 2016 Presidential election and if they were aided by U.S. citizens. The findings were that the Russians DID interfere and although there is not enough evidence to charge U.S. citizens with legal conspiracy, there were many contacts between the Russians and the Trump campaign leading up to the election. Thirteen Russians were indicted.
Volume II will be covered next time.
