The letter raised numerous questions, Lemon said, such as why Trump had "repeatedly deferred" to Russian President Vladimir Putin over his own administration.
For many Liberals, who have been long tortured by the wet dream of Trump's indictment, followed up with sensational impeachment proceedings, they are now left standing at the Russiagate terminal, unable to comprehend that the train has already left the station. "I would say treasonous things against our country".
When it comes to collusion, Barr states, "The special counsel's investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russian Federation in its efforts to influence the election".
On close reading, Barr's putative summary of the Mueller report clears Trump of only the most narrowly drawn accusations, which nobody was making. "And it began illegally", Trump said on March 24.
"Now the question is if there were three investigations - no evidence of collusion - who made it up?" The attorney general added that he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein also determined that Mueller's findings were not "sufficient" to prove Mr. Trump committed obstruction of justice.
In addition to the security clearance issue, Cummings' committee is probing Trump's alleged scheme during the 2016 campaign to buy the silence of two of his former mistresses, Playboy model Karen McDougal and pornographic actress Stormy Daniels.
Echoing remarks from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Senate's top Democrat, Sen.
"I think this is the weakest part of Attorney General Barr's conclusions", said Jessica Levinson, a professor at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. "He's just not worth it", she told The Washington Post earlier this month. "The way the process works is they leave that up to the attorney general".Читайте также: Us scores biggest ever opening box office weekend for an original horror
President Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani said in media appearances Monday that Robert Mueller's sweeping probe was "bad" for the country - and cryptically warned that whoever persuaded the feds to pursue it will soon be revealed. Congress needs to see the full report to assess the underlying evidence.
But Democrats, led by House Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler (D-NY) aren't convinced and want Attorney General Barr to testify before Congress.
Instead, Barr made a determination based on reviewing Mueller's report for less than 48 hours. This new development reveals the two Justice Department officials had more time to reach this conclusion.
Collins commended Mueller, whose legal team interviewed 500 witnesses, for being thorough, and the Department of Justice for not interfering in the investigation.
"To suggest that if you're a Republican and you want Trump to win, you can't do your job is absurd", he continued.
"As a lawyer, you don't waive privilege, you don't waive investigative detail", he said. Although Mueller determined that there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, he was able to charge and prove other crimes by Trump associates.
One of the classic jerk moves of a prosecutorial office is to believe in their hearts that investigations are like 70s rock and just fades away so everyone can imagine it just continues forever.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
