Special counsel is investigating
Trump for possible obstruction
of justice, officials say

Washington Post, by Devlin Barrett & Adam Entous*

The special counsel overseeing the investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 election is interviewing senior intelligence officials as part of a widening probe that now includes an examination of whether President Trump attempted to obstruct justice, officials said. The move by Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III to investigate Trump’s own conduct marks a major turning point in the nearly year-old FBI investigation, which until recently focused on Russian meddling during the presidential campaign and on whether there was any coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. Investigators have also been

The psychological warfare from the far left side of the aisle continues to ramp up, even after a horrific morning in DC that could have effect the stability of our nation. I believe that the dRATS were taunting President Trump to fire Mueller so they could have added that action to this new stink bomb. We in Texas (and Congress) went through a similar open-ended witch hunt by the dRATS with former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay.

Congress should step in and call Mueller in front of Committees. Put him under oath and grill him. See how long his pretenses to truth, justice and the American Way stands up.

This goes hand in hand with Al Green (?) who is planning impeachment charges against Trump claiming Trump is committing obstruction of justice. The witch hunt continues.

No surprise, the object of these investigations has always been a political initiative by the insider D.C. Democrats and some never Trumper insider Republicans to undo the election and remove President Trump from office.

The "Collusion with Russia" mantra has always been a hoax and a sham designed to serve as a basis for initiating this Special Counsel investigation.

# 1 that was sarcasm right? Paul Ryan is all for Mueller doing whatever. The Speaker needs to be removed and someone who´s not a globalist replace him and do what you suggested and a lot more. The Democrats have opened the flood gates if the Republicans had any testicles they would not only bring Mueller up there but hillary, valarie, susan, loretta all of obama´s female sycophants testifying under oath! But we all know the Republicans are more concerned about the msm than WTP! Godspeed Rep. Scalise!

Comey leaks a memo alleging that Trump attempted to stop the Flynn investigation (which he could have legally done). Comey claims he was trying to trigger the appointment of a special prosecutor. Voila! Rosenstein appoints Comey´s best friend who is now investigating Trump for obstruction of justice. Could this be any more obviously orchestrated and corrupt? Do they think we are that stupid? Evidently they do.

A backdoor way for Mueller to "immunize" himself from being fired. This cannot stand. Trump should replace Rosenstein and then have either AG Sessions or the new Deputy AG then replace Mueller. This is war: fight it.

What will the Democrats do: turn to violence? /s

Of all the ginned-up "investigations"

Still don´t know what crime they are investigating - Russians did what and Trump and team colluded with what? Huh? Totally ginned-up.

No substance, FTA: "Investigators will also look for any statements the president may have made publicly and privately to people outside the government about his reasons for firing Comey and his concerns about the Russia probe and other related investigations, people familiar with the matter said."

"People familiar?" Who? This will result in Stalinist and Maoist-like show trials, and the Dems think this will help them?

FTA: "Five people briefed on the requests, speaking on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly, said Daniel Coats, the current director of national intelligence, Mike Rogers, head of the National Security Agency, and Rogers’s recently departed deputy, Richard Ledgett, agreed to be interviewed by Mueller’s investigators as early as this week. The investigation has been cloaked in secrecy, and it is unclear how many others have been questioned by the FBI."

Five people?? I can´t even believe this!! Who are these traitors, one of those many Democrat lawyers involved? It is laughable that they state it has been ´cloaked in secrecy´ and yet these leaks come out. I thought this was supposed to be the ultimate of secrecy when the special counsel is involved. I would hunt down those leakers and punish them to the fullest extent of the law.

It is totally outrageous and very obvious that the only goal of this sham of an investigation is to bring Trump down. I still cannot believe that Jeff Sessions allowed this to happen. I have always been one of his biggest fans.

If the D.C. Congressional Republicans allow this sham investigation to continue to a conclusion with attempts to remove President Trump from office, and thus undo the election, everyone of them should face primary challengers, with the survivors not receiving any votes from the 60 some million Americans who elected President Trump. That´s the only way to get rid of those Uni-Party wimps.

The whole episode is a setup to get Trump. Comey knew he was going to be fired, so he stayed behind for a setup meeting with the President so he could write a memo to take back and get a special prosecutor appointed, then Trump removed from office based on obstruction of justice, as evidenced by Comey´s memo. This is the way Comey works his process prosecutions. Sessions should fire Mueller right now.

Of course, they need to investigate this point, but that does not mean any happened either.

Seems Comey already acknowledged that much.

So, you rule things in, and rule things out.

We also now know the Special Council has no more lid on leaks as the FBI.

And the sad thing is he will cheery pick Obambi hack judges and make this even worse.

Mueller´s political motivation is crystal clear, he´s being supported by Trump haters like McCain on the GOP side, he´s staffing his lynch mob with Hillary donors. "Obstruction" is a non-crime that is almost impossible to defend against. Mueller is a crook, get rid of him.

This isn´t about the far left or Democrats. It´s about the entire political class. However, Trump´s compulsion for self sabotage has brought him to this point. At his 1/11/17 press conference, the first since his election in Nov. 2016, Trump said he agreed--without a shred of independently verified evidence--that Russia hacked the election and that Putin shouldn´t have done it. Thus, Trump nullified his election and proved stupendously weak. In more self sabotage, Trump hired as NSA chief Mike Rogers who is a major promoter of ´Russia hacked the election in order to tip it to Trump´. Why would you hire someone who believes your election was a fraud? Trump has no stomach to fight the Deep State. He should resign now so we don´t have to watch this in slow motion.

It would seem that there is one person in the USA who CANNOT obstruct justice - the President. Since the President has the power to pardon anyone, for anything, at any time, how is it possible to be obstructing justice when he could just say. "OK, he is pardoned" and it is instantly, irrevocably, and unreviewably OVER? Saying "I hope you can get past this" or something similar is just a passing conversation. If Trump meant it, he would have pardoned Flynn.

While the concept of obstruction of justice makes perfect sense for anyone else, it is an impossibility, really, for the President.

I don´t care what the Post says, conjectures, opines or fictionalizes in anything they cover regarding politics these days. No thinking person should. Sessions says he has confidence in Mueller, and if he loses that confidence he´ll do something about it.

Well, don´t expect any support from the Republican Political class. They want the President´s head as much as the democrats do. What we are witnessing is the globalist cabal of which many are members of both parties is flexing its muscle. They cannot allow Obama´s hard work these past years to be destroyed by the President´s policies. They are only successful if the USA is a hollow shell of its former self. They need us weak, broke, and divided. I wouldn´t put anything past these evil psychopaths. They have no conscience and will do whatever it takes to get Trump out of the White House. If impeachment fails, they will use violence. Count on it.

It is heartbreaking that there are so few men in DC who will stand up for this President. It seems as if he stands alone. Where are the patriots? The time to take a stand is now.

Fleas in two Arizona counties are carrying bubonic plague, an infectious disease that took the lives of millions of people in the Middle Ages, according to news reports. So far there have been no reported illness and deaths. Health officials in Navajo and Coconino counties in Arizona recently issued a warning to the general public after fleas in the northern part of the state tested positive for Yersinia pestis, the bacteria that causes the bubonic plague. Humans can contract the plague in a number of ways. In addition to flea bites, people can pick up the bacteria by handling the fluids or tissue of a rodent or another animal that has the illness.

Kellyanne Conway, a senior adviser to President Donald Trump, has taken steps to sell her political consulting firm, according to a document released Monday by the federal Office of Government Ethics. Conway received the right to defer capital gains taxes for her sale of the Polling Company/Woman Trend, the documents show.

North Korea’s Missile Success Is Linked

North Korea’s success in testing an intercontinental ballistic missile that appears able to reach the United States was made possible by black-market purchases of powerful rocket engines probably from a Ukrainian factory with historical ties to Russia’s missile program, according to an expert analysis being published Monday and classified assessments by American intelligence agencies. The studies may solve the mystery of how North Korea began succeeding so suddenly after a string of fiery missile failures, some of which may have been caused by American sabotage of its supply chains and cyberattacks on its launches.

Saturday was marked by bloodshed in Charlottesville, Virginia after an apparent white nationalist plowed into a crowd of counter-protesters in a blatant attack. And on the morning after, NBC’s Sunday Today put President Trump in their sights as they unloaded on him while appearing to pin the blame for the attack on him. At one point even claiming he “enjoys” the support he gets from the bigots who were rallying in Virginia. “President Trump condemned the violence there on Saturday but he did not specifically speak to the white nationalism that was on display,” complained Anchor Willie Geist as he was

Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett said he plans to sit during the national anthem for the entire season after staying on the bench for the anthem during Seattle’s first preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. Bennett said he was motivated by the events in Charlottesville and wanted to speak out on racial injustice. On Sunday, Bennett remained on the bench with a towel around his shoulder pads while the rest of his teammates stood for the anthem. “First of all I want to make sure people understand I love the military — my father was in the military,” Bennett told reporters. “I love hot dogs like any other

President Donald Trump insisted on Monday that he and his administration forcefully denounce the ´evil´ embodied by white supremacists and other bigoted hate groups whose weekend rally in Virginia left one woman dead and 20 others injured. ´Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans,´ the president said at the White House. ´We are a nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal. We are equal in the eyes of our

A day after violence broke out between counter-protesters and white nationalists in his city, Charlottesville Mayor Michael Signer on Sunday said President Trump deserves at least some of the blame. “Look at the campaign he ran,” Mr. Signer told CNN’s “State of the Union.” “Look at the intentional courting, on one hand, of all these white supremacists, white nationalists … and look on the other hand at the repeated failure to step up, condemn, denounce, silence, put to bed all of these different efforts, just like we saw yesterday. This isn’t hard.” Mr. Trump has come under bipartisan fire for failing to explicitly condemn white

Dear John: You recently criticized the FBI for its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails. I am a retired FBI agent and extremely proud of my career and service. I feel compelled to write. Former FBI Director James Comey’s statements, testimony and behavior are truly abhorrent. Comey admitted under oath before Congress that the bureau did not utilize a federal grand jury in the Hillary e-mail investigation. Furthermore, he testified that in his experience, when dealing with attorneys, you can obtain information easier and faster than via a federal grand jury. Never, I repeat never, in my 25-year career have I or any FBI agent

‘We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides. On many sides.” Such was President Trump’s statement Saturday on the violence in Charlottesville, Va.Really: That was it.Yet “many sides” didn’t drive a car into a crowd, an evident act of terrorism that killed Heather Heyer, 32, and hospitalized many more, with some still in critical condition. It shouldn’t be that hard to summon up a few Trumpian terms like “losers” and “really, really bad people” to describe the hundreds of neo-Nazis, Klansmen, white supremacists and the like who descended on the
