Release the Hounds !

The "FULL" report must be released !

What a funny....yet weird "Demand". jrSmiley_99_smiley_image.jpg

Now we know most of the folks "Demanding" this "Full Release" of the Mueller report, have been in congress for quite some time now. "WE" know, they are "Adults" knowing the rule of laws of congress on what is allowed and what isn't. Or so we think anyway ! jrSmiley_30_smiley_image.gif

Now I have a question. jrSmiley_68_smiley_image.png

Since these "Adults" have been in congress for quite sometime, and they know the "Laws" of the land they MUST follow, will they accept the "FACT" that the "Full" report may not be able to be "Released" ? jrSmiley_87_smiley_image.gif

Do these "Adults" actually know that "Fact" ? jrSmiley_87_smiley_image.gif

For Political Reasons....will they "Ignore" that "Fact" ? jrSmiley_15_smiley_image.gif

I will guarantee .... if the "Full" report isn't released....a "Certain Group of Folks" will claim ..... COVERUP ! jrSmiley_42_smiley_image.gif

Think about it. For two years this "Certain" group has been ranting about how the "Mueller" investigators are beyond reproach and shouldn't be hindered. How the "Mueller Group" is what everyone should wait for, as this will be thee "Truth" !

THIS IS THE ENDALL REPORT NEEDED,to get this country back together ! jrSmiley_20_smiley_image.gif

At least that's what the media, and the politicians for that matter, have been telling us day-in and day-out ! 

Guess what ? jrSmiley_91_smiley_image.gif

THAT ISN'T THE CASE AT ALL !!!!!!!!!! jrSmiley_97_smiley_image.gif

The "End All" Mueller report says "No Collusion", and the "Liberals are pissed.Surprise, Surprise …… NOT ! jrSmiley_22_smiley_image.gif

So know that "God" has forsaken them, Liberals are gonna drag this thing on, and on, and on, and on, and …………..hoping to get a new Blue wave that doesn't actually refer to being "SICK"jrSmiley_98_smiley_image.gif, tell us they are just dragging this on because they "Care" about the "People" again ?  jrSmiley_10_smiley_image.gif

What if we all just watched the OJ Simpson trial and the judge selected was a known "Juice" fan and had written an open letter dismissing the possibility that Mr. Simpson could have done something like what he'd been accused of. Then the jury comes back with their verdict and hands it to the judge, who, instead of reading it, says "Well, the jury looked at the evidence and believes there is a strong case either way on first degree murder or perhaps manslaughter, so they left it up to me and I've decided he's not guilty, you're free to go Mr. Simpson"...

Don't you think people would have a right to see the jury verdict for themselves? Should we just leave it at "just trust me"?

And on that note, regarding the actual OJ trial, question: Do any conservative republicans believe after watching the actual OJ Simpson trial that he was innocent because the jury came back with a verdict of not guilty?

Point being, just because Mueller was unable to find any concrete conclusive evidence of illegal conspiracy doesn't mean it didn't happen. Just because the Trump associates so muddied the waters and lied constantly about their contacts with Russian agents that Mueller wasn't able to find the smoking gun doesn't mean there wasn't one. As the report literally says “while this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him”.

Personally, I believe OJ murdered Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman regardless of the jury verdict and Trump has been in Putin's pocket for a lot longer than any of us know regardless of the inconclusive report.

There is two parts to that sentence. Funny how the first part is always left out when one is against trump.

"while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him."

"The Special Counsel therefore did not draw a conclusion — one way or the other — as to whether the examined conduct constituted obstruction."

OMG...are you being obtused on purpose?  Where did you come up with that analogy?  In the OJ case, two people where murdered, a crime was committed regardless of who the perp was.  There was no crime committed for Mueller to investigate, he spent $25 million dollars investigating a fucking fairy tale.

We had the dead body in all the evidence that Russian did in fact hack State election systems, hacked both the GOP and the DNC and illegally disseminated stolen emails in an effort to aid Donald Trump win the Presidency which they felt would benefit them.

“President Putin, did you want President Trump to win the election and did you direct any of your officials to help him do that?”

“Yes, I did. Yes, I did. Because he talked about bringing the U.S.–Russia relationship back to normal.”

The only question was whether it was premeditated election murder or whether Trump was just an unwitting accomplice guilty of nothing more than manslaughter at best. It appears Mueller has concluded there is not enough evidence to prosecute Trump with criminal conspiracy aka premeditated murder, but that the report does not exonerate him of all wrongdoing.

A crime was committed whether the Trump sycophants want to admit it or not. The Russian meddling did make a difference regardless of our lack of ability to quantify it with anything more than the 122 million Americans it reached. The attack on our elections were the digital equivalent of Pearl harbor but apparently there are some traitors among us who dance with glee at the fact we were attacked, an attack which they know gave their candidate an edge in a narrow electoral college victory but they're too dishonest to admit it.

There never was a crime committed because there was no crime to commit! There is not a law prohibiting collusion no matter how much you want there to be.

I would suspect that left wingers and blacks thought he was innocent, remembering the reactions of some people I worked with back then. I'm not a conservative, so I have no idea how they felt.

You desperately want to believe that Trump did all these bad things, but there is no evidence that he did. The majority of Americans accept Mueller's conclusion. The opinions of a small number of far left loons doesn't amount to much.

Okay.

Yeah...  real reliable poll this one is: https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/most-americans-say-trump-not-exonerated-of-russia-collusion-after-barr-letter-poll

The poll, commissioned by CNN, was conducted SSRS, an independent research company. The firm interviewed 701 respondents from March 25 to 26. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 5.4 percentage points.

It's interesting that there is no verbiage of what was asked in the "poll".

https://www.axios.com/poll-majority-think-trump-is-not-exonerated-of-collusion-ff864673-aa71-44af-930e-d24e6b790e4b.html

It seems you've sourced two different places using the same "poll"

The majority (56%) of individuals polled in a CNN survey conducted this week said they don’t believe President Trump and his campaign are exonerated of collusion based on what Attorney General Bill Barr revealed about Robert Mueller’s report.

And using CNN for anything Trump is not what anyone could call unbiased.  Hell, they hate him almost, not quite but almost as much as Hillary herself.

Members of the jury later admitted that they thought Simpson was guilty as sin:

"In an excerpt aired on public radio show “Fresh Air” this week, juror Carrie Bess, who is now in her 70s, is asked whether “there are members of the jury that voted to acquit OJ because of Rodney King.”  “Yes,” she says simply. Later she says that she was one of them."

The point is, we don't believe Barr's summary, it is meant to protect Trump.  We won't know what Mueller really says until we read it.  Congress will get it one way or the other and the truth will come out.  Until then, we know it can't be good because Barr said in his pre-job interview he would protect him.  Barr's letter means nothing.

Actually, all the money that the Russians spent was on Facebook with ads that aided both sides.  In other words, the Russians didn't really care about who won, they just wanted chaos in the USA.

“President Putin, did you want President Trump to win the election and did you direct any of your officials to help him do that?”
“Yes, I did. Yes, I did. Because he talked about bringing the U.S.–Russia relationship back to normal.”

You do realize he was asked this question AFTER Trump had won?  What else was he going to say about the person he had to work with?  "I didn't want him to win, because he wanted to bring things back to normal where we wouldn't get anything except through threats of force."  Remember, Clinton and Obama had the Russian reset, in other words, they tried to bring things "back to normal" and the Russians just thumbed their noses at them.  If Hillary had won, the Russians had a lot of dirt on her already and could have used that as leverage to get WHATEVER they wanted.  They had the payments to Bill Clinton while Hillary was Secretary of State and the subsequent deals for Rosatom and technology exchange via Skolkovo (aka Russia's Silicon Valley).

They had ads that targeted black Americans constantly reminding them that Hillary wanted to lock them up back when she was first lady. They had ads pretending to be liberals organizing hate rallies against conservatives and ads pretending to be conservatives starting hate rallies against liberals. They had ads claiming conspiracy theories against Hillary and ads claiming conspiracy theories defending Trump. There is no evidence they ever wanted Hillary to win, their support was for Trump and they got what they wanted. Putin believes Trump to be the equivalent embarrassment as Gorbachev is to the Russians. Russians hate Gorbachev for what they see as the selling out of their nation to the west, Trump is Russia's retaliation for that. They saddled us with one of the most ignorant and incompetent Presidents in American history and have been laughing at us for the last two years and applauding our increased divisions they helped widen. Divide and conquer. That was their strategy and conservatives jumped on their bandwagon believing the enemy of my enemy is my friend. What they don't realize is Putin hates them just as much as liberal Americans and will stab them in the back the first time it becomes profitable for him to do so. Conservatives and liberals should be joining forces to condemn the Russian attacks and work together to make sure it never happens again. Sadly, it appears many conservatives are willing to let half of their nation crumble and die if they feel they might be able to gain permanent control of the nation and implement their religious agenda.

How about we do just that:

"Congress let the independent counsel law expire in part because of concern among some lawmakers that Starr had exceeded his mandate. The Justice Department then crafted regulations to create the job of special counsel in 1999, with certain limits on powers.

The regulations require Barr to notify the top Republicans and Democrats on the House and Senate Judiciary Committees that Mueller's investigation has concluded. The Justice Department's policy calls for Barr to summarize the confidential report for Congress with "an outline of the actions and the reasons for them." According to the regulations, Barr "may determine that public release of these reports would be in the public interest, to the extent that release would comply with applicable legal restrictions."

https://www.aol.com/article/news/2019/03/06/why-muellers-report-letdown-for-trump-critics/23685661/

Dems did so much complaining after the Starr report that they got the rules changed. Now you don't like the rules!

Congress tried to introduce bills to protect Mueller from the 'evil' president .. but now a percentage of the 'Mueller is So Great' club have turned on him.   Those that have not turned on him now try to interpret what Mueller 'intended'  .. I wonder if Mueller knows that he 'intended' for congress to decide if the President was guilty of obstruction...?

I patiently waited for the report to come out, I did not speculate the end result .. the findings are what they are, like it or not... the bringing down of Trump will have to wait.  If the gnashing of the teeth continues, it may just strengthen his bid for reelection...…………… !

I never understood how so many could be so confident that there was 'proof/evidence' that would bring down Trump … Manafort was torn apart (perhaps rightfully so) because he was going to the big fish caught on the expedition ..?  Manafort broke the law, slept with Russia (figuratively speaking) but even he was not found guilty of collusion.    Flynn was financially squished for 'basically' nothing .. he took a plea to protect his son .. Papadopoulos was set up .. Carter Page's rights (I feel) were violated, he did nothing wrong and the FBI knew it .. the fishing expedition into his private life was in hopes of snaring a mythical creature ... and people cheered, because it was the destruction of Trump that was sought .. did not matter how those results were obtained .. thus the Steele Dossier was believed by so many...

I am still shaking my head over the outrage and anger individuals/elected officials are putting forth .. meanwhile, Trump sits back vindicated, no collusion, no obstruction, do you suppose that bugs peeps the most?

Others rambling about 'we do not believe Barr' ..

This howling at the moon for a report that has not even been released for a week, to be fully released, when it already has been stated by Barr that he is consulting with Mueller and Rosenstein on what can be released ..

"And it's not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations,"
-Senator Barack Obama

Hate is a pretty strong word … the refusal was personal for sure - all things anti Trump club rides again .. Viva Resistance .. or something like that...

"We the People" are pawn's in a game of not very well played chess .. 'we' see what is happening, but not everyone sees the same thing .. without compromise and bipartisanship, what can one do to prevent the US from to continuing to get more divided?  Sadly 'we' seem to be the ones paying the price for the poor decisions made in DC .. and to think 'we' actually 'elect' these individuals to obstruct, both sides of the aisle do it......

As a tax-paying citizen of this country,  I would love to see the full un-redacted report.

However I also understand that there are some parts that cannot be released. I don't know if the president can release the parts dealing with the grand jury,  I think those must remain confidential but I'm not sure. And I know it's not a good idea to release sources and methods but the president can authorize that information to be released.

We don't know how large this report is but it's easy to guess that it's several hundreds of pages so it will take time to go thru everything to determine what lines must remain confidential and what can be safely released. But party politics is pushing for the immediate release so that they can remain in front of the camera. Until proven wrong I think we need to take Barr at his word that he wants to release as much of the report that can be released. And have patience which is a rare commodity in Washington.

Agreed that the DOJ has the lead on this and Barr has stated several times that he wants to release as much of the report as he can while being consistent with DOJ rules and regulations and the law.

But as the DOJ is part of the Executive branch and the President has final say in these classification matters,  I think he can authorize to release the entire report including sources and methods but not grand jury material. As I said above it's not a good idea to release sources and methods but the president can un-classify them and have them released. I'm not sure however of the law around grand jury materials but I don't think they can be released even by the president.

LOL,  ok you went back and added this in. 

Agreed, there is always some information that the general public should not see. Sources and methods should be protected always. My big problem around that is I don't really trust politicians who have in the past over-used classifications in order to hide their mistakes from us rather than really keeping what should be secret kept that way. I can wish all I want that they would be more open and transparent but I know that's not the world we live in.  As my father used to say,  wish in one hand and shit in the other and see which one gets full first.

The "President" has limits on what he can control over the DOJ !

https://www.latimes.com/nation/nationnow/la-na-justice-department-white-house-20161123-story.html

Do presidents oversee investigations of the Justice Department?
Definitely not.
Long-standing protocol dictates that the FBI and Justice Department operate free of political influence or meddling from the White House. That's one reason that the FBI director serves a 10-year term and does not turn over the reins as presidential administrations come and go. It also means that presidents are not supposed to supervise, initiate or stop law enforcement investigations.
White House officials and Justice Department lawyers aren't even meant to talk with each other about ongoing criminal investigations or civil enforcement actions, though there is some leeway granted for matters of national security.
A 2007 Justice Department memorandum says the department will advise the White House of criminal or civil enforcement matters "only where it is important for the performance of the president's duties and where appropriate from a law enforcement perspective."
"This limitation recognizes the president's ability to perform his constitutional obligation to 'take care that the laws be faithfully executed' while ensuring that there is public confidence that the laws of the United States are administered and enforced in an impartial manner," the memo states.

Current law dictates Grand Jury information must be protected.   The President can do nothing about that.   Not sure even an Executive Order can change that.   Other information that must be redacted relates to national security related issues.   The sanctity and privacy of the Grand Jury systems trumps any politicians desire for it to be otherwise.  

They'll piss and moan about it endlessly i'm sure but Democrats are "legally" shit out of luck in that regard.

From 1994 to 1998, independent counsel Kenneth Starr investigated alleged abuses including the dismissal of seven Travel Office employees and conduct relating to former Arkansas state employee Paula Jones's sexual harassment lawsuit against Clinton.

The final report included graphic descriptions of alleged sexual encounters between Clinton and Lewinsky, who is now an anti-bullying activist. Alleged improprieties related to their relationship formed the bulk of a section on activity that could warrant impeachment. 

The report was published online in full on September 11, 1998, despite attempts by Democrats to delay its public release by even an hour so the president and his attorneys could read it,The New York Times reported at the time. "It is important that we American people learn the facts," then Judiciary Committee chairman, Henry Hyde, told the Rules Committee, according to the Times.

In the end, distribution of the report was delayed only by overwhelmed government internet servers that crashed as journalists and members of the public attempted to download the 445-page document, Wired noted.

So a special council report could be released on the internet yet this special council report should not be?

Hello Ender ...

Mueller's report was given to the DOJ on Friday .. it is a counterintelligence report that looked into possible collusion with a foreign country .. I am confident there is information, contacts etc in Mueller's report that requires discretion .. the intelligence community cannot be outed.  There are also ongoing investigations...

I believe the report will be released, but it will be redacted, Barr has already said he would be consulting with Rosenstein and Mueller to determine what can be released... I think patience is required, it is a lil early to be thinking there is a cover up happening, although I know there are many that think the cover up has already begun .. yet I do not see any proof of that at this time - I could be wrong, or have missed something that has been released in regards to the DOJ blocking the reports release... ?  Congress does not have a say .. McConnell cannot block the report

I was naive, I thought the Mueller report was suppose to be the investigation that would put people at ease .. it has fired things up in a major way..

Cannot argue with you regarding Congress being able to read the report .. but I do not agree they need to read the complete document for the very reason you stated ….. Though congress has outed intelligence people before.

Congress also leaked the information that US intelligence was tracking bin Laden through his use of a satellite phone .. sadly, I do not think all our elected officials are competent nor capable in many ways .. I can foresee members of congress yacking just to hear themselves yack .. especially after the controversy that is seemingly surrounding this report already … 'We the People' are better off without the sound bites and innuendos with no facts to support them..

Just my never so popular opinion Ender …

I do not care for Trump .. think the man is a puke, but I am also thankful that there was no collusion found. (like it or not Trump is president)  I know it is going to take a while for people to come to grips with the idea that the US can/will survive the Trump presidency  … had there been collusion or obstruction identified, a huge can of worms would have been opened .. serving only to make the US healing process that much more difficult....
