Opinion: Is a blow-job more of a constitutional crisis, than actual foreign interference?

I know that the one time the world was following an impeachment of an American President, live and in living-colour was back in the 1990s. Those was the days of Kool-Aid and a Presidential Affair turned into a Constitutional Crisis. This because the Republican Senators and Representatives took their shot at the Democratic Party President William J. Clinton.

They started impeachment inquiry in December 1998 over his affair in the oval office with a White House Intern Monica Lewinsky. By the end of February 2019, the whole case got acquitted, even after strong intentions and will from both Ken Starr and others to get rid Clinton. Still, it didn’t work.

Today in 2019 were seeing a move in this way today’s lucky bastard, Donald J. Trump, whose character and actions can be put into question. As his will to use Russian help, coordinated efforts and the investigation of over 2 years have shown. Still, the Congress is hell-bent on not acting upon it.

So, by this definition, in the 1990s a blow-job by an intern is more dire, than actually a foreign intervention and direct corrupt behaviour of present day government. Surely, in hindsight, people will say they would have supported the impeachment of Trump. But right now, the gravy-train, the slow train of reform isn’t there. It wasn’t as needed, as the strike and the fury of the acts of Clinton.

Sure, it was bad. He destroyed nearly his marriage to Hillary. He showed a lack of character and that he could misuse his power to get a happy ending. Well, the current day President has gotten a lot more and done a lot more in return. The President haven’t tried to stop a possible intervention in the up-coming elections in 2020. Neither has he tried to make the sanctions nor react to all the intelligence shown, that the Russians did interfere the previous election for the benefit of Trump.

Also, the obvious case of obstruction of justice, the ill-behaviour and the misuse of office. There is enough deeds to put this White House and this Administration under question. Clearly a long bucket list of foreign affairs and donations, sudden strikes of corporate deals done and to top-it off, the pay-to-play acts done by Trumps. Surely shows that the Tea-Pot Dome Scandal was only a fluke, but a daily occurrence in this government.

That is why the Congress, the House of Representatives should start an Impeachment Inquiry, where they will put the President under subpoena and by a grand jury to investigate the possible misdeeds of the President, as the Congress can do.

A CRS Report of 2005 states this: The focus of the impeachment inquiry is to determine whether the person involved has engaged in treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. If the House Committee on the Judiciary, by majority vote, determines that grounds for impeachment exist, a resolution impeaching the individual in question and setting forth specific allegations of misconduct, in one or more articles of impeachment, will be reported to the full House” (CRS Report for Congress – ‘An Overview of the Impeachment Process’ 20.04.2005).

This is clear on the memo. As the Congress and House Committee of the Judiciary and the House Representatives can start an inquiry and start an investigation into the President. To see if there is evidence of treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. Just like in the past when they checked the blow-jobs of Clinton. In today’s world, the House of Representatives has to see if they can find clear evidence and in the collected reports of Special Counsel Robert Mueller; if there is anything that is criminal. This can be done by them. As there been plenty on the Trump Team and Campaign staff, which have been implicated in the probe and even sentenced ever since. This is why, with the knowledge of this and the secrecy, not only the release of all the volumes of the report. Plus the trying to deflect it all and overshadow the evidence collected. There is surely more to shed a light on, an underworld the President doesn’t want the public to know. Just like his hidden tax-returns, which is more secret than the golden showers in Moscow.

Alas, there is a need to start the proceedings, that is if a blow-job in the oval office is more critical to the state, than foreign interference from the Kremlin. Peace.

Opinion: The Mueller Report is damning for President Trump

After reading the 2 released volumes of 11. There is clear intent and actions made by the Trump Campaign Team, the Trump Transition Team and when the Trump Administration got into power. There are clear signs, even if the report doesn’t state it directly, as the was so many connections. So many meetings and such a variety of gathering between Russian operatives and the Trump associates. It is like they coordinated and ensured they had meeting point. That they could come together and get things done.

To say otherwise is naive. The levels of this is special, from the Trump Tower Moscow, the Miss Universe and beyond. The central meetings, which the Trump Team have earlier denied and later said was “much ado about nothing” but must have been something since your covering it up.

The same, all the times in volume two, where the Special Counsel describes the intent and acts to interfere and obstruct justice from the President. Where the President even states that an unrecused Attorney General could shield the President from the ongoing Russian investigation. Maybe, why he got rid of Jeff Sessions and had an acting AG, before ending up with favourable AG Barr. Seems so by the looks of it.

Just like with Michael Cohen, the President discouraged his previously personal attorney to testify and cooperate with the Department of Justice and the Special Counsel, as this could hurt the President. Therefore, he was tampering with the investigation, by trying to stop Cohen from talking and giving evidence to the law officials. Secondly, he tried to do the same thing with Michael Flynn. That is why, this Presidency has deliberately tried to obstruct, by silencing the ones in association and the ones close to it.

The President trusted Manafort and knew that he wouldn’t cooperate, even as he was convicted of crimes. His associate and partner Richard Gates offered the needed information and got a plea agreement. Meaning, that the business of Manafort and his companies would be covered by the scope of the investigation, even if Manafort didn’t plea guilty.

This report of volume two of the Mueller Report specifies that the President obstructed with intent and had motives of doing so, but it was unsuccessful, because the persons around him didn’t follow his direct orders. That is damning evidence of acts against justice and rule of law. By the man that is the Executive branch and the man of the highest office of the Republic. That he was personally interested in closing the investigation and making it harder for the officials to investigate the matters.

After reading the report, I wonder what is written in the volumes that is not public and not released. What is so important that it was redacted and not official yet. Because, this is the first report and not the whole. Because then the public would have all the volumes, not just the first two ones. This is deliberate from the Attorney General and Department of Justice.

We know there are casing going against Roger Stone, Internet Research Agency and others in the parameter of the Trump Campaign. As well, as more Grand Jury inquires and possible subpoenas to come. Also, the launches of more investigation from the Committees on Capitol Hill. This Russian Investigation isn’t over, even if the Report is unleashed. Since, this is telling a lot, but still not the whole picture. Though a deeper dive into the material. Much, which is already unleashed by reporting over two years. Where the realities of the communications, the meetings and the intelligence of Russian agencies where involved.

We just have to see where this leads us, but this report is really damning. It is setting everything in perspective and shows how much contact the Trump Campaign had with Russians. Which was like they were close and knew each other. Because, this much activity is weird. Especially, if your not supposed to have any foreign interference in the elections. Peace.
