Mueller Warns of Active Russian Meddling, Seeks Disclosure Lid

Source: Bloomberg

U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller warned that Russian intelligence services have active “interference operations” in the U.S. and asked a judge to limit the pretrial evidence provided to a Russian firm indicted over meddling in the 2016 election.

“The substance of the government’s evidence identifies uncharged individuals and entities that the government believes are continuing to engage in interference operations like those charged in the present indictment,” prosecutors wrote.

There are still individuals and entities engaged in attacking our country on behalf of Russia. Mueller still plans on charging more people.
Wonder when and whom he plans on charging.

1. republicans don't give a shit

They are happy to let the russians have their way as long as they can break up families, put children in cages, hug their guns, screw the middle class with tax gimmicks, and give massive tax cuts to the wealthy.

11. Oh they most certainly do give a shit.


About 70% are simply loving the power they got, even if the party can't govern even with majorities. They are very fearfully looking over their shoulders at the blue wave, but they figure hey that's tomorrow.

About 20% are as complicit as heck and are trying to cover their asses.

About 10% are wondering what the hell their party has become and publicly don't like it. 10% is not enough to save the party.

18. They're all traitors. The 70% and the 20%

Silence is complicity.

They are all backing a foreign power and a corrupt thieving White House resident who is destroying the post-WWII alliance system that kept all all safe. All because he wants to help Russia, for whatever reason - money or blackmail - we don’t know.

This is a national emergency and anyone not working to throw out Republicans is complicit.

2. Wonder when and whom he plans on charging. (Trump?)

Please let it be so.

https://www.senate.gov/reference/resources/pdf/98-806.pdf

Art. I, Sec. 3, Cl. 6 & 7:
The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that
Purpose, they shall be on oath or affirmation. When the President of the United States is
tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: and no Person shall be convicted without
Concurrence of two-thirds of the Members present.
Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from
Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under
the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to
Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment according to Law.

15. I, too, "wonder when and whom he plans on charging"

But as far as Article 1, Section 3,
It will never happen as long as Eddie Munster & the GOP (Gang of Pigs) control the House of Representatives.
Impeachment starts in the House, and, if the House votes to impeach, THEN it's sent to the Senate under Article 1, Section 3 for possible conviction.

We, as Democrats, MUST DO ALL WE CAN TO REGISTER MILLIONS OF NEW VOTERS BEFORE
THE NOVEMBER MIDTERMS
We have to attract millions of millennials to help accomplish this.
We NEED the 18 to 30 year-olds to A) Register to vote, B) Help get their friends & others to register to vote, and then C) we need to GET OUT THE VOTE BY THE MILLIONS before November 6 of this year.

The Republicans can only steal elections that are CLOSE (Obama proved this in 2008 & 2012)

Please let it be so.

22. The part I'm pointing out is that Mueller can charge the President, separate from impeachment.

I agree that we need to register millions of voters and get them to show up in November.

However, even if we win 100% of the races, impeachment is mathematically impossible. If we do well, we'll flip the House, maybe (long shot) get a slim majority in the Senate. Those things would help reign in Turd. But impeachment requires 2/3 in the Senate and that's not a possibility.

So we need to keep sight of the fact that the Constitution expressly permits indictment of the President, and even an Impeachment does not foreclose criminal indictment, trial, and punishment - it is explicitly not a double-jeopardy situation.

Not criticizing you OliverQ. "Attacking", or "assaulting" would be more appropriate.

14. Anti American Fox News won't report this. Or...

Anti American Fox News will call Mueller a liberal. Or...
Anti American Fox News will blame it on Obama.

Or... I just love writing Anti American Fox News. Say it enough times and it just imprints in your brain. Think I’ll have a bumper sticker created.
