The Important Issue About the Events Around the Russia Investigation

The important issue to me in the Mueller Report and the investigation so far, is the standard used to bring indictments. The Mueller investigation is about American citizens, many in the government right now, who may have conspired with a hostile foreign power to defraud the American people. In layman's terms, Treason.

Now, the Justice Department has put a criteria on indictments for these crimes as "beyond a reasonable doubt, as well as being able to prove the case to a jury of 12 reaching a unanimous guilty verdict." These guidelines are fine for putting a person in jail. These guidelines are fine for the average Joe who may have committed bank fraud or tax evasion. But they are not fine with me when it comes to Treason, and they are not fine with me that a person, who may have committed Treason staying in his or her government position.

If there is "probable cause" that a person may have committed Treason, that person should not hold a position of trust in the United States. That person should not still be negotiating agreements with foreign governments. That person should not still be appointing judges. The American people should know that there is "probable cause" the he or she is a traitor, even if they are not indicted because the bar is so high as I described. "Beyond a Reasonable Doubt" is a great concept to prevent incarceration, but that bar is far too high when it comes to remaining in office when the charge is tantamount to Treason.

1. This is what will come in the report


The details of all of this.

Barr wont be able to just say... No further indictments and doj is prohibited about talking about citizens who have not been indicted.

This would essentially be the president is above the law.

What will happen here is that it will be left to congress. Congress will get the details and we are not sure that he Rs will move to impeach.

At this point the R's are ok with treasonous behavior with the Russians because they all profited from this arrangement. Their base is going to accept it because there will be enough spin.

It will be up to us to vote him out of office and then further investigations and actions can happen.

We have to VOTE HIM out. EVERYBODY has to get behind the DEM candidate.
