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.
Attorney General William Barr, the third Attorney General under President Donald J. Trump, whose been under investigation by the Special Counsel Robert Mueller for over 2 years. Today, was the day, that the public might see the report. However, before the redacted report get released. Even as the Congress and various of committee have been asking it for weeks. The Department of Justice and other in the administration. Have done whatever they can to spin the report.
Today is nothing different. Instead of letting people decide for themselves and look into the verdict of the Mueller Investigation. We get for the second time a spin from the Attorney General. Who previously only written a letter, which didn’t say much. All of the time playing the tune the President wants to hear. Surely, if he don’t, there will be a new acting Attorney General soon.
We know that the investigation isn’t winding down, we know there are still people under legal scrutiny, whose in close proximity to the President. While his former Campaign Manager, his aides and his former personal lawyer are all either felons or becoming state property soon. Therefore, it is not like the state have not found illegal or breaches of the law within the parameter of the President. It is just mere luck, that they haven’t found more or able to find more. As the Congress Committees are subpoena the people around the president and also the Trump Organization.
Therefore, the investigation is still ongoing and weird that the AG and the President are in public exonerating themselves. Even when there been so many people indicted and also put charges on. From Michael Cohen, Michael Flynn, Alexander Van Der Zwaan, Paul Manafort, George Papadopolous, Richard Gates and Roger Stone to mention a few. Whose all been in Court or indicted for breaking the laws.
That is why its rich for the Attorney General to say nothing was found and he was totally guilty. When so many was found guilty around him. The group and people around him has been taken into custody and had to answer to the rule of law. They have all been charged and even given plea deals to feed the investigation. The Special Counsel wouldn’t do that, if he didn’t believe he could build a case. That is why, it is rare and unique, that an investigation seeking this deals with several of close allies of the President. Couldn’t find a single thing on the President and further more people around him.
That sounds like spinning the report to me. I want to read that report, to see what Mueller found and what he asses. What sort of possible breaches and explanation to the erratic and hasty acts of the Trump Administration. This doesn’t sound like a true statement from them. Especially considering the reports of close communications ahead of the Presser. Where the White House and DOJ have communicated, meet and negotiated the Press Conference. This is a clear memo, that the law is directed from the Executive and not independently after the legal status, the DOJ is supposed to abide too. Just think about that and then, see if you find something wrong.
We don’t know what the report says, it hasn’t been released, only the mere biased opinion of the third AG under Trump. Peace.
That Department for Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen has now resigning and still it isn’t good news. It is just someone who has offered her greed for being in power, by defending someone indefensible. That is who she is and how she will be remembered.
This former DHS Secretary will be remembered for the way the she handled the Zero Tolerance Policy. The way she has defended the policy of separating children from the parents on the border. The way the state has built camps for kids and let them even lose their lives there. If not traumatise the kids and even cage them in. Depending on which private firm the state had given contracts to do this for ICE and the DHS.
Therefore, I am not felling sorry for Nielsen. She has written herself into the Zero Tolerance Policy History and will be remembered for the two years of tears, pain and sorrow, she has helped push on innocent people crossing the border. Which shouldn’t be done in this and treating the people like they are illegal. There are procedures and laws to enforce this, there always has been for sovereign republic.
However, making them criminal by passing over the border is totally outlandish. Instead of ensuring they are following the codes and the justice for everyone. Not everyone passing over the border would have the right or opportunity to get visa to stay. Nevertheless, the state shouldn’t act upon them this way. It is injustice to the innocent children and tormenting the parents for trying to find a better life or even trying to live the “American Dream”.
Like D’Angelo Gore reported in June 2018: “DHS told us the “zero-tolerance” policy went into effect on May 5, and between May 5 and June 9, there had been 2,342 children separated from their parents. Contrary to what Nielsen claimed, other administration officials have acknowledged a change in policy to serve as a deterrent to illegal immigration” (Gore – ‘Nielsen’s Rhetoric on Family Separations’ 20.06.2018, FactCheck.Org).
The Texas Observer reported this also in June 2018: “In a letter sent last week, 19 special agents in charge at ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations unit said that ICE’s controversial detention and deportation policies have made it hard for them to conduct investigations into threats to national security, organized crime, narcotics smuggling and human trafficking. “HSI’s investigations have been perceived as targeting undocumented aliens, instead of the transnational criminal organizations that facilitate cross border crimes impacting our communities and national security,” the special agents in charge wrote in the previously unreported letter. They also wrote that “the perception of HSI’s investigative independence is unnecessarily impacted by the political nature” of ICE’s immigration enforcement. “Many jurisdictions continue to refuse to work with HSI because of a perceived linkage to the politics of civil immigration.”” (Jason Bunch – ‘ICE Criminal Investigators Ask to Be Distanced from Detentions, Deportations in Letter to Kirstjen Nielsen’ 27.06.2018, Texas Observer).
We can see what her work did. She tried to defend and even downplay the narrative, as the innocent civilian migration, the asylum seekers was taken into custody and the kids separated by the authorities. This even made it worse for the same authorities to investigate or follow the illegal crime of drugs. Which has been part of the issue, this Trump Administration has used as a pawn in the Zero Tolerance Policy. Even making it worse to investigate that, because of the horrific tactic of separating families on the border.
She is despicable, she is part of the paradigm that brought the “Shameful Era” back in the United States. Together with Stephen Miller, Sebastian Gorka, Stephen Bannon, Jeff Sessions and the list goes on.
Now, she will not be the DHS Secretary anymore, however, she will always be remembered for caging in kids. For saying to the world that no kids died in the detention camps, when it did. She defended the evil of men. Kristjen stood by this and worked hard to downplay the results of the acts of the Zero Tolerance Policy on the Southern Border.
We can clearly see and remember what she did. Her legacy is sealed by her actions. The words done in defending something no-one should defend. Nielsen has done this to herself. The acts and words are defining her time in Office.
I don’t feel sorry for her, she made the cake and has to eat it. The ones defending her doesn’t care about violations against humanity. They don’t care about the innocent who was violated and taken into custody, because of her enforcement of the Zero Tolerance Policy. That is what will stain her name and her memory. Peace.
