1. Guess you didn't get the memo.

Believe it or not, sometimes Individual-1 lies. Sometimes frequently.

3. Democrats should ask Rosenstein to comment publicly on this

 

But, no, I don't believe it for a second.

4. I can tell the exact source of the information.

The source is called "Donald Trump's ass."
This is the DU member formerly known as Tommy_Carcetti.

7. There's a reason his mouth looks like a sphincter. It spews forth the same product.

5. This has been discussed before

There is a "technicality" here. If DOJ guidelines say the POTUS can't be indicted, then technically, he can't be a target of an investigation. That's the theory here - if Rosenstein said any such thing, its based upon the DOJ policy about indicting a POTUS. It doesn't mean that he isn't being investigated as a target.

16. Don't think that's the reason.

Trump could be indicted regardless.

8. Yesterday was a two-fer:

Trumpy lied about his meeting with the intel chiefs, AND he lied about Rosensteinís denial that Trumpy is neither a target nor a subject.

Remember that Trumpy goes to any length to create his own reality. This is what he did.

10. The problem is, to some extent (because of media and GOP complicity) he creates

our reality in doing so; temporarily at least, and damage gets done.

20. The M$M is gaslighting us. Just watch Chuck Todd

11. We Know Mueller Describes Trump As Individual 1.....

so because of this Trump is part of the investigation. However, is it possible that Mueller hasn't officially designated Trump as a 'target' yet?

They are investigating many people all around Trump now. If Trump is not officially designated as a 'target' - it gives Rosenstein the cover to say to Trump - he is not a target. That doesn't mean that at some future time they could officially designate Trump as a target.

Not officially designating Trump as a 'target' doesn't hinder Mueller's investigation in any way.

14. Well back in April of 2018

Roesnstein did tell tRump he was not a target.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-04-19/rosenstein-said-to-tell-trump-he-s-not-target-in-mueller-probe

Maybe he just remembered this and is pushing it again to confuse.
