I would write a sentence on the board that had about 10-30 errors and my students in First Grade had to correct them for points. They loved doing this. They could do it well in their daily exercises but forgot to apply the rules in their own, every day writing samples.

19. Don't under estimate the SDNY

Manhattan-based federal prosecutors can challenge Trump in ways Mueller canít. They have jurisdiction over the presidentís political operation and businesses ó subjects that arenít protected by executive privilege, a tool Trump is considering invoking to block portions of Muellerís report. From a PR perspective, Trump has been unable to run the same playbook on SDNY that heís used to erode conservativesí faith in Mueller, the former George W. Bush-appointed FBI director. Legal circles are also buzzing over whether SDNY might buck DOJ guidance and seek to indict a sitting president.

24. Well, I meant for conspiring w/Russia. That's not in the jurisdiction of the SDNY.

I know there are charges that may come in the SDNY and maybe elsewhere, relating to laundering and fraud and such.

It's not likely anyone will indict Trump for anything, since he's President.

Impeachment is the recourse, I suppose.

I feel like the evidence has been staring us in the face for a long time but now somehow Mueller has vindicated him and it doesn't make any sense. Why would he lie about the trump tower meeting, why would he lie about the trump moscow tower, why would he fire Comey, why would he keep denying that Russia interfered, why would he kiss Putin's ass every chance he gets, why would he tell the Russians that firing Comey got the heat off of him, why would Don Jr not tell his father about the meeting a trump tower, why the hell did all these trump people have contact with russians. I just don't get it. You will hear the words I told you so and witch hunt at least 500 times next week. SMH.

36. What consensus?

This sounds like a classic "some people are saying" post.

After listening to the mindless spin coming out of the WH for the past two years, what makes it credible now?

It was just a few weeks ago that Trump was yelling that the judge in Manafort's case had declared there was "no collusion" by Spanky - when of course the judge said no such thing, or anything remotely like it.

Right now, no one other than Barr and Mueller knows what it's the final report - ergo, no one is in a position to claim that it's "good news" for Trump.

45. Are you watching FOX-News?

I've had CNN on for hours, and no one (not even the GOP pundits) are saying that. The only thing they're saying is that Trump is probably relieved that there won't be any further indictments from Mueller.

Given that no one knows what's in the report as yet, claiming "exoneration" or "vindication" has no meaning whatsoever.

This is like being in a courtroom, the jury announces they've completed their deliberations, and before they announce their verdict, the defendant jumps up and yells "I've obviously been found innocent!"

In any event, pundits, WH spinners, etc. can say whatever they want - it doesn't matter. Mueller's report says what it says - and all the spin in the world isn't going to alter a word of it.

The GOP have been whistling past the Trump graveyard for two years - they're just whistling louder now.
