The Mueller Report, Redacted – 04/18/2019

Thursday, April 18, 2019 to Sunday April 22.  Published on Tuesday, April 23rd.

 

THE RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION

The Mueller Report has been released.  At least a redacted version.  To be honest, it’s not nearly as blacked out as I thought it would.  I also thought it would be 400 black pages with a few words selectively left in place that would say something like “Trump not bad.”  Ever since Daily Check-In 03/22/2019 when the report was first handed over to Mueller, we’ve been waiting for this to come to light.  Of course, this is not the end, but simply the beginning.

I have to admit that I have not read the report yet.  As I’ve mentioned in the last few posts, I have a lot of things going on in my personal life.  Even with that, there’s a lot to digest from this weekend.

So, the short, short version.  The Russians helped Trump become President.  Trump and his team lied about it constantly.  They tried to conspire with the Russians but screwed it up.  They lied so much that no one could be trusted.  Richard Burr fed the Trump White House sensitive information.  The Reporters were right.  The whole of Team Trump broke a fuckton of laws.  They tried to get Clinton’s emails like there was a golden ticket attached to them.  Mueller referred 14 criminal investigations to other agencies, and only two of them are currently known to the public, and not in a lot of detail.

William Barr lied to cover for Trump.  His main argument, and I use that term loosely, for why he didn’t charge Trump with Obstruction of Justice was that no one carried out his commands.  Each time he ordered someone to do something to hinder the investigation, that person either pushed back, slow-walked the order, or just ignored it.  Because of that, Barr says that Trump’s actions don’t meet the requirement of the criminal statute.  If you think trying to commit a crime but fucking it up isn’t a crime in itself, I guess all the people Chris Hansen asked to have a seat on ‘To Catch A Predator’ are completely innocent, huh?

Also, Mueller didn’t charge Trump with Obstruction of Justice.  He said that duty should fall to Congress.

RUMOR MILL

 

That’s it for the last few days.  At least, from what I saw sitting on the sidelines.  Things should calm down in the next few weeks, but as of now they are still pretty busy.  It’s hard enough taking care of my own bills and house, but for someone else as well is pretty stressful.  Okay, the most stressful part of dealing with him and his shit is keeping up the appearance that I feel bad for him and his condition.  I’ve had more contact with him in the past month than the previous several years combined.

Also, I’m going to spend more time going over the report itself, but I don’t know when that will be.  Like I said last time, it’ll be a few weeks before I’m back to posting each day.  This week, I’d like to publish something for Monday through Wednesday, then maybe daily posts after that, assuming nothing else explodes.

That being said, my dog was walking with a limp yesterday.

 

Thank you, and have a good one.
