Thread: #Trump legal team arguments for creating the constitutional crisis of complete #obstruction turns on 3 arguments that are all merit less:
#TrumpOnstruction arg 1.: The House must vote to have #impeachmentknquiry. Nope. Constitution doesn’t require it & neither do House rules. Judiciary must vote articles out & then send to full House. They’re working on it.
#TrumpObstruction arg 2: His #dueprocess rights are being violated. Nope. You don’t have a right to all the evidence before your charges & preparing for trial. And #Whistleblower protection is necessary given enormous power of #POTUS. But Trump knows the allegations. We all do.

The #Ukraine call is enough to impeach Trump. His refusal to respond to House subpoenas makes #impeachment even more likely. Despite Democrats’ strategy to keep the impeachment inquiry simple, the House should subpoena the transcript of Trump’s call w/ #Erdogan.
2/ Trump will no doubt refuse to comply. But an #HJC investigation of the #Erdogan call will winnow fact from fiction & eventually yield witnesses, perhaps another whistleblower.
3/ There are critical reasons for looking more closely at the #Erdogan call. On its face, Trump acted unilaterally against a US ally in support of a dictator hostile to that ally — an abuse of presidential power. Digging deeper, the call has an appearance of #QuidProQuo

Of 235 #Dems in the House, 139 publicly support #impeachment investigation on #Ukraine allegations that #Trump personally & directly intervened in release of foreig#n aid $ to a “hot” war zone & raised investigating #Biden. Today I expect we will hear #Pelosi saying it’s time.
While the #MuellerReoort gave ample grounds for concern on #Trump campaign 271 contacts with #Russians, this is a case where #Trump admits undeniably dangerous behavior & obstructing Congressional oversight of it.

Smug stonewalling Corey #Lewandowski & GOP cohorts are subverting democracy at today's #impeachment hearing. Americans voted to put Democrats in power to hold this corrupt POTUS accountable. But Repubs shamelessly obstruct & spew propaganda to protect idiot POTUS & their power.😒
Lewandowski/GOP Logic: Obama, Clapper, Comey, Brennan are to blame for Russia subverting our election to install Trump … which never happened.

Also let’s jail those who tried to stop Russia’s attack but failed b/c corrupt Trump & GOP encouraged & gave Putin cover.

🤡💩🔥24/7
GOP propaganda agitprop circus aside, Lewandowski & Trump KNOW their conduct is culpable #obstruction. Otherwise Trump wouldn't be directing White House lawyers to silence Corey w/ baseless privilege assertions. & Corey would answer Judiciary Dems' questions. #ImpeachmentHearings

#RobertMueller will be testifying before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees on July 17.

Here are some crucial questions that should be asked when he testifies (Thread 👇). | Article by Jeff Carlson @themarketswork theepochtimes.com/33-key-questio…
1) Did #AttorneyGeneral Barr in any way misrepresent your 448-page report?

#Mueller failed to identify the grand jury info in the #MuellerReport. Barr noted that “it immediately meant that you know it was going to be a period of weeks before we could get the report out.”
2) Who actually wrote Volume I and Volume II of the #MuellerReport?

At this point, it isn’t known with certainty if #Mueller had any hand in writing the report directly, or if he simply served in an oversight capacity.

The narrative of #ObstructionOfJustice originated prior to the conclusion of the #MuellerReport. (Thread 👇)

Less than 6 months after #Mueller’s appointment, @BrookingsInst published “Presidential Obstruction of Justice: The Case of Donald J. Trump.” theepochtimes.com/tracing-the-or…
The report outlined a scenario whereby #Mueller would refer his #Obstruction findings to #Congress, which would then take up the matter and continue investigating.

The report also discussed ways Congress could #ImpeachTrump, mentioning the word “#Impeachment” 90 times.
2 of the report's authors, Barry Berke & @NormEisen, were later retained by #HouseJudiciaryCommittee Chairman @RepJerryNadler on a consulting basis as special oversight counsels to the Democrat majority staff. judiciary.house.gov/news/press-rel…

Talk about collusion & obstruction! WH lawyers won't let Hope Hicks answer congressional questions about her time in the White House. She is a major eyewitness to multiple of Trump's obstruction crimes—documented in the #MuellerReport. It's beyond absurd. It's a criminal coverup.
FYI #HopeHicks is mentioned over 180 times in the #MuellerReport. WH legal spox Mark Corallo recently spoke about the time she suggested destroying evidence of the infamous #TrumpTowerMeeting w/ Russians. It made his "throat dry up." Then he quit. #ObstructionOfJustice #Maddow
Judiciary Chair @RepJerryNadler is rightly furious abt absurd WH "immunity" claim to prevent Hope Hicks from answering questions. Even Corallo knew convo wasn't privileged b/c no lawyer was present as they schemed to cover up Trump Tower Meeting w/ Russians. #Maddow #Obstruction

Why did Putin call Hope Hicks at 3am #ElectionDay2016? How did Putin get her personal cell #? What did he say? What did she say or promise? What did Kushner say to Putin? What did Ivanka say to Putin? What did Trump say to Putin? #SIGINT #muellerReport read it, listen to it!

Some updated reporting re the SEVERAL things that happened in Michael Flynn's case yesterday. Beginning with his firing of his legal team, indicating that Flynn might be considering backing out of his gov't deal. #FridayFeeling #TREASON
politico.com/story/2019/06/…
2-"Flynn’s case took several unexpected twists on Thursday as it inches toward closure. First, his longtime lawyers notified the presiding federal judge that their client had fired them and hired new attorneys. That move set off a raft of speculation in legal and political
3-"circles that Flynn is considering backing out of his plea deal with the government in a play for a presidential pardon. Also on Thursday, federal prosecutors released the audio recording of a November 2017 voicemail left by John Dowd, Trump’s personal attorney at the time,

#BREAKING Robert Mueller To Make "Lengthy and Substantial Statement" on Russia Investigation at 11am ET (in 20 minutes) nyti.ms/2KapwS0
Mueller is making his first public comment on the Russia investigation in a few minutes at the Justice Dept. WaPo says it will be 8-minutes long. AG Barr is out of town but briefed on content. As was the White House, per @CNN, last night.
#Mueller confirms the Russia investigation was NEVER going to indict Trump—b/c a sitting president CANNOT be charged, per OLC. It would be unconstitutional, so NOT AN OPTION, he said. But Trump IS NOT exonerated. UPSHOT: Evidence showed obstruction but Mueller's hands were tied.

"The Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion."

#MuellerReport
justice.gov/storage/report…
Russia attacked the US using a new form of warfare.

Essentially Russia invaded the US. They just used the internet instead of tanks.

#MuellerReport justice.gov/storage/report…
Take note of this statement from page 2 of the Mueller Report.

"A statement that the investigation did not *establish* particular facts
does NOT mean there was no evidence of those facts."

Watch for use of the word "ESTABLISH".

35 Questions for Bob Mueller

I teamed up with the great @AshaRangappa_ and @jgeltzer.

We came up with a list of questions the public has a right to know.

That's in addition to the 60 excellent questions from Senate Judiciary Committee Dems.

justsecurity.org/64137/what-con… <thread>
2. Think of our 35 questions as a supplement.

Here's a link to the 60 questions for Bob Mueller from the Senate Judiciary Committee Dems:

feinstein.senate.gov/public/_cache/…

What follows is a sample of some of the 35 questions that @jgeltzer @AshaRangappa_ and I came up with ...
3. Arguably the most important question on our list for Mueller is about missing counterintelligence analysis and why Congress has not been adequately briefed by Mueller/FBI.

For more background, read this important @pbumpinterview with @RepAdamSchiff:

🚨Trump White House just asserted executive privilege over the #MuellerReport. Just as House Judiciary is about to vote to hold Attorney General Barr in #contempt for refusing to provide the full report. Roy Cohn Barr threatened he would tell WH to do this. Absurd and abusive.
Louis Gohmert has said “coup” twice already, pushing the absurd and desperate propaganda that the Russia investigation was a “failed coup” to “set up” a legitimate POTUS. (Did Putin give Trump+/his propagandists that idea? It’s a favorite Kremlin trope!) #BarrContemptHearing
Sad Twilight Zone: Democrats are talking about the constitution, rule of law, defending our institutions. Republicans spew propaganda buzzwords—“liberal media overlords” “kangaroo court” “coup” “spying” “Strzok.” Can’t even defend Barr. #Obstruction #BarrContemptHearing

.@TheDemocrats @HouseDemocrats @SenateDems @SpeakerPelosi @tedlieu @SenSchumer @SenWarren @RepAdamSchiff @RepMaxineWaters @RepCummings: The longer you allow Trump & @GOP to remain unchallenged w/o publicly releasing evidence of their crimes/corruption, the more you endanger us.
By "us" I mean not only the nation, the Republic, the Constitution, or all citizens: by "us" I mean the nation and the world. You't allow this corruption to continue. You *must* act now to publicly expose the corruption by ALL those who are #ComplicitAccomplices to #TrumpTreason.
To date, @realDonaldTrump has publicly lied over 10,000 times. @senatemajldr has seriously undermined the right & proper functioning of government to undermine checks & balances, to protect Trump from Constitutionally defined oversight, to obstruct investigations, & to facilitate

Le #breaking GOAT😉 de la nuit US. Le procureur spécial #Mueller a ÉCRIT au ministre de la Justice #Barr pour lui dire que son relevé de conclusions sur son enquête ne correspondait pas à son rapport sur #Trump. Retournement massif. washingtonpost.com/world/national…
2) Dans cette lettre, #Mueller accuse nommément #Barr d'avoir semé la confusion dans le public avec ses conclusions sur #Trump qui "ne capturent pas pleinement le contexte, la nature et la substance du rapport et de ses conclusions" (#verbatim)
3) D'après le @washingtonpost, dans 1 entretien téléphonique postérieur- mais attention, là, sources indirectes- à la lettre, #Mueller ne reproche pas à #Barr de mentir mais d'avoir présenté des conclusions égarant le public et les médias quant à l'obstruction de #Trump.

>> Chuck Rosenberg: Here's a useful exercise. Read Volume 2 of the #MuellerReport (on #obstruction) and substitute any other name and title for Trump and President. You would already have somebody in handcuffs. It's *such* a compelling case of obstruction. @lawrence @TheLastWord
Wow @FoxNews legal analyst rips Barr & Trump. Citing facts in #MuellerReport, Napolitano: Ordering ppl to break federal law to save him from the consequences of his own behavior IS obstruction of justice. It’s immoral, criminal, defenseless & condemnable.
Former DAG Sally Yates: "If he were not the president of the United States, he would likely be indicted on obstruction… I've personally prosecuted obstruction cases on far, far less evidence than this." @SallyQYates: #MuellerReport #ObstructionOfJustice

#Mueller did not recommend indicting @realDonaldTrump for #obstruction of justice--there was no crime
It's another #Weissmann-crafted narrative
He makes up crimes-Just ask four Merrill Lynch executives who spent a year in prison on indictment of conduct that was NOT criminal
See the excellent thread by @JohnWHuber for a full explanation of the
#ObstructionOfJustice allegations and "crime" alleged by
#Weissmann
#WeissmannReport
He has destroyed countless lives on false charges
LicensedtoLie.com
The #obstruction statute DOES NOT EVEN APPLY to an #FBI investigation!

The only two courts that have addressed this issue have decided squarely AGAINST #Weissmann's bogus theory.

Lisez et relisez cette phrase (et le passage souligné en rouge) sur la campagne #Trump et la #Russie du rapport #Mueller, elle revient 2 fois dans les 15 premières pages. De la notion de "collusion" qui est d'ailleurs aussi beaucoup discutée dans les 1ères pages. #teasing
2) Après le résumé du volume 1 sur 7 pages, dont le texte précédent page 5 est extrait, le rapport #Muller narre d'abord ses découvertes sur l'opération de déstabilisation de l'élection US 2016 par l'IRA de Prigozhin, proche de #Poutine, sur les réseaux sociaux.
3) Cette partie très caviardée sur l'ingérence de l'IRA russe sur les réseaux sociaux conclut clairement: l'IRA de Prigozhin viola les lois US contre l'influence étrangère des campagnes mais les campagnes locales de #Trump contactées par l'IRA ignoraient l'origine russe (page 35)

2) Two days after Comey's firing McCabe testified under oath no obstruction.
3) Aprox. 6 weeks after Comey's firing, he testified under oath no obstruction.

What happened to the #Mueller hype?
What happened to the Mueller will take down #POTUS threats [@JohnBrennan]?
Was MUELLER the 'insurance' policy aka #BLOCKADE designed to limit/restrict POTUS' ability to enforce the law?

"complexities, opaqueness &amp; length of counterintel investigations, I’d be surprised if #Mueller was able to uncover breadth of this #conspiracy. More digging will have to be done. But there’ll be crimes. &amp; we better get to see them://t.co/seYfCs0d6q
