This Post Begs The Question - What Will Mueller's Report Have To Prove....

in order to stop Trump once and for all?

Really - all this time that Mueller has been investigating Trump - Trump has been out there using his bully pulpit to taint the jury pool (half of the American public). He's called the Press/Media - the enemy of the people; he's belittled the FBI and the DOJ; he's gotten away with all sorts of things that other presidents couldn't have gotten away with. He uses one news network as his mouthpiece. He's supported racists. He calls himself a nationalist (white implied). He's attacked women, gays, immigrants. Just about every thing he says is a lie. He's basically gotten away with all of that up to now. Though we all know this - there just ain't nothing anyone can do about any of this.

He just shoves our noses in it and laughs at us. Everything he does is rationalized as "that is just Trump being Trump". All his erratic behavior has been normalized.

So I ask - what will stop him? What does Mueller's report have to say that will put a stop to Trump?

I know that a lot of the American People will welcome Mueller's report - but I ask - will it be effective in anyway to stop the madness. We know Trump's supporters will follow him and support him no matter what it says. We know the impotent Repug's will just circle the wagons around him. We know that he's stacked the courts - SCOTUS included. We know that he will use the power of the pardon to give a get out of jail card to his partners in crime.

Will more indictments of more of his cronies even help?

I really feel sick bringing up all this. I've been demoralized in the two years that he's been around. I wake up every morning and check DU to see what crazy thing he's done or said and what kind of trouble he's brought on to this country. I want it to stop - but I'm not sure if even Mueller can make it stop.

1. Nothing will cause many if not most GOP voters to abandon Trump.

His racism is their racism.

3. So Why Are We Hanging Everything On Mueller To Save Us.....

if we know nothing will stop Trump? Seems to me a lot more American People will be demoralized - or even more demoralized.

I just don't want the feeling I had when the 2016 election results gave it to Trump. Seems like we might be setting ourselves up for more demoralization.

6. I did not say that we cannot stop Trump.

A great beginning happened Tuesday. 2020 will be the next step in a long journey. We need to change the political narrative, and that takes time, especially in a country with a mainly conservative media.

Mueller will not save us. We will save us.

2. I doubt Mueller's report will include anything most people don't suspect.

Question is whether enough people will care.

4. It would have to be so conclusive that it would shame the GOP not to do something....

Problem with that is that I am not sure if the GOP caucus has any shame.

7. With Everything That's Been Said About Trump; Russia; Collusion; Money Laundering;.....

PP tapes; pussy grabbing; porn stars; white nationalists; racists; immigrants; tax forms; etc, etc, etc - really - is there anything that can be said that will be conclusive or shocking enough to move the GOP or any of his supporters to do something/anything?

5. You are doing this wrong. Wake up in the morning and check DU

to see if he's DEAD to obtain maximum frustration. Half measures avail you nothing. (I think I may have stolen that sentence from AA).
