Republicans can't maintain Trump and Family's innocence for too long

...there have been tens of thousands of subpoenas in the Mueller investigation, alone.

The report will be a wealth of crimes and abuses to investigate further, and for Congress to determine whether they crossed the line into impeachable offenses. More bombshells are coming, more shoes to drop, and lists of questions still unanswered by Barr's opportunistic, clearly biased summary.

Also, as observers have noted, much of the collusion with Russia was not directly with Putin's government, so it's probable there are paper-thin defenses about degrees of separation Trump and family's Russian oligarch partners had with Putin. Most of the conspiracies involving Russia will be found in the financial connections surrounding Trump Tower Moscow.

There are other less treasonable matters like Cohen's payoffs to women accusing Trump of sexual assault and other misconduct, which, nonetheless put Trump and associates in legal jeopardy. There are also other investigations and prosecutions to come from probes into Trump charities, which are out of reach of Trump's pardon power.

The right wing is having their day behind Barr and Rosenstein's attempt to absolve with a memo to Congress. That moment is actually over today, as more people are pointing out the lack of ANY guidance in Barr's summary from what Mueller actually wrote in the report.

I guess they were hoping we didn't notice the president's handpicked appointee, ramrodded through by the republican-controlled Senate, and the president's flunky, Rosenstein (who wrote the cover memo for Comey's firing), crafting a defense friendly to their boss almost completely removed from the reams of evidence contained in the actual Mueller report.

Eyes on the prize.
