In law school I learned very early on that almost anything can be interpreted or viewed from many

different perspectives. That’s what lawyers do and when necessary try and bend the law to fit their clients factual situation or, on occasion, try and set new precedents. However, the one of the very few indisputable, written in stone things we learn is that “shall”means “must”, not “maybe” but “must”. Practicing for over 30 years as a trial attorney, I am not intimidated by many things in court. However, a sitting Federal judge issuing a court order is not someone or something to be trifled with especially when the law says “shall”. Barr and the DOJ defy the federal judiciary at their own peril. I have gone toe to toe with federal judges but only when I had a legally reasonable argument. Trump’s lawyers should be ashamed of themselves making the absurd arguments they did and should be hauled in front of the ethics committee for lying about not having knowledge of the law as it applied to Clinton and Nixon and congressional oversight of the executive branch.

I don't know if Warren can beat Trump but she is the best prepared. If she isn't on the

Warren needs to be appointed to or a job needs to be created to allow her to implement many of her policies. Maybe something like “Take Down the Aristocracy Czar” or “Trust Buster Czar” and let her loose on Wall Street, Pharma, and the likes of Amazon, Google and Facebook. Imbue her with the regulatory authority to break these companies up and re-order our country. And now that norms and traditions are a thing of the past so it by executive order. Create seats on the federal judiciary
And clean house of all these crazy federal appointees of Trump like newly appointed federal judge Vitt. Warren can be today’s version of Theodore Roosevelt.

You are correct. They are completely brainwashed. Then I ask myself, am I the brainwashed

one? By every metric, be it moral, political, and/or social Republicans are on the wrong side of the issues. Now I cannot fault someone who identifies as conservative for issues like abortion because of their religious indoctrination. But pro-lifers cannot justify their beliefs in limited government while also allowing government to dictate the most basic and personal decision a woman can make. I know many Republicans and many who are very wealthy and smart. The all posses certain undeniable traits. For the most part, the conservatives I know share the following qualities: they are hypocrites, racists, misogynistic, selfish, paranoid, greedy, narcissistic and uncharitable people. They profess to believe in God but act in the most ungodly ways. They are sociopaths. John Dean’s “Conservatives Without Conscience” expertly explains conservatives, the group think “Dunning-Kruger” effect that helps explain conservative ideology.

Trump administration dumping long time independent advisory group the Jasons.

A secretive group of scientists who advise the U.S. government on everything from spy satellites to nuclear weapons is scrambling to find a sponsor after the Defense Department abruptly ended its contract late last month.
The group, known as the Jasons, will run out of money at the end of April.

The Pentagon says that the group's advice is no longer needed, but independent experts say it has never been more relevant and worry the department is throwing away a valuable resource.

Russell Hemley, the head of the Jasons, says that other government agencies still want advice and that the Jasons are determined to give it.

Late Thursday, it appeared that another government agency might be willing to take on the group. The Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration posted a solicitation saying it intends to take over the contract for the group. That could happen in a matter of months, and it is unclear how the Mitre Corp., which manages the Jasons, would fund the group in the interim.

Take nothing for granted but this MF'er will lose 2020. Everything he touches turns to shit so no

doubt the economy will stumble and he will be tossed out on his big fat ass. Also I am reserving judgement until we see the Mueller Report. I don't want him impeached but i want to set the record straight for historical purposes. Mueller exonerated him with regards to collusion/conspiracy and would have done so with obstruction if he could. Mueller could not indict thus could not conclude Trump obstructed which would have delegitimized the United States President. Mueller had 2 choices; Exonerate or leave it to congress. The evidence could not exonerate so he left it for Congress, not Barr to follow up.

I love you posts H20 but have to disagree with you here. No more indictments means Trump can pardon

his way out of this. State charges, come on really. The Manhattan DA is gonna take down a president. State AG is gonna take down a President. Never ever gonna happen. Republicans and the RW spin machine will have a fun with this. We are all fools put out the doormat over Democrat’s forehead because we will be the laughing stock. I am indeed freaking out and if anyone thinks that Barr will say or do anything to hurt Trump well they need a reality test. America has officially become a banana republic and we are all stooges. The sooner you realize this the better we can move on picking bananas.

No. The writing is on the wall. We were had. I now feel bad for Cohen going to jail for lying.

No more indictments is all we need to know. Forget SDNY that’s another media scam to get us to watch. WE are all suckers, dupes, raving lunatics. For 2 years we have read and obsessed over this investigation and it’s a NOTHINGBURGER. Just get accustomed to hearing the word NOTHINGBURGER. WE GOT FUCKED GOOD.

Thanks for the attempt to pick us up Shockey80 but Trump will not be

held accountable. The right wing media will spin Mueller’s report so that no Congressional investigations can penetrate. The media got us again. Fool me once, Hillary will be elected, shame on you; Fool me twice, Mueller will hold Trump and company accountable, shame on me. We are going to look like the raving fools that the righties say we are. I am so disgusted I m beside myself. Clinton is impeached and Ken Starr orchestrated it going public at every stage. Fuck Mueller, had he been investigating a Democratic president nothing would be off the table. WE HAVE BEEN HAD!!

I hate to say this with all my heart and soul but unless there are some huge revelations in the

report this will be, I bite my tongue as I say it , a nothingburger. I hope and pray I am wrong, but looking at it from Mueller’s perspective there had to be indisputable, beyond reasonable doubt evidence to charge the criminal president. Looks like there is tons of evidence but not enough to take the extraordinary step of indicting a president. We have all been once again conned by the media who has enjoyed incredible rating. Young reporters getting Pulitzer’s for what? Looks like a nothingbuger. Excuse me, I must now take my leave to vomit and choke on my own words. This criminal president is going to get away it’s it all.

Piece by piece they are destroying the institutions that make our country

unique. The last vestige of relief for the people is the judiciary which just took a swift kick in the gut. At the time when the rule of law most needed to be buttressed, this ignorant judge undercut the entire legitimacy of the criminal justice system with a sentence that can only been seen as rigged in favor of rich white men. This was an American Travesty.
