“In the report, special counsel Robert Mueller outlined why obstruction by President Trump failed. It failed because others refused to “carry out orders.”
In other words: NO OBSTRUCTION
Tuesday CNN’s prime time average viewership was a meager 781,000 viewers.
Prime: FNC: 2.823 | CNN: 781 | MSNBC: 1.953
"Let's imagine for a moment what a conservative would say to all this..."
Let's imagine what a conservative would say. A panel of nine journalists sitting around imagining what a conservative might say.
A news channel, supposedly unbiased.
Collusion narrative dropped.
New narrative fantasy obstruction / impeachment.
So, what CNN is picking out of this 440+ page report is that Trump was hot-headed because the Democrats had successfully BULLSH!TTED their way into a witch hunt, and Trump wanted to cut the witch hunt off before it grew any kind of legs on which to stand.
This would be like me hearing Billy telling some bold faced lies about me. After someone heard me say, “I am going to kill Billy!” They want to have me arrested and put to the death penalty!
I mean Billy isn’t dead, Billy wasn’t even TOUCHED! Billy doesn’t even know that I said I wanted him dead! BUT...because I SAID IT, I should be arrested, prosecuted and put to death!
This would be funny, if we weren’t talking about the FIFTH COLUMN of the U.S. support system, attempting to actually undermine the other damn columns!!
They have watched them!
Sadly, they root for the defendants every damn time!
Nonsense. If you conspire with someone to do something that is illegal, you can still be charged whether or not they follow through with the crime or not.
Thank goodness, I once told my brother to go rob a bank. Thankfully he never did it so I’m not a convicted bank robber. Twisted logic.
I am going to start a pool on how many times congressional Dems and the media uses the word Watergate relative to Muellers report not exculpating Trump on an obstruction charge while finding no evidence that he could be convicted of the same. My guess is 1.4 billion times. Sorry, gents, its not as if Mueller found he destroyed e mails or billing records or found his dna on a dress.
I don’t understand the obstruction claims at all. Why would someone “obstruct” an investigation into nothing at all?
Barr said basically that although the Pres was vocally upset about this investigation dragging on he never withheld any documents, withheld any witness, nor invoked Executive Privilege, which is his prerogative, at any time. The WH got an advance look at the redacted report to give them one last chance to invoke Exec Priveldge which they did not do
Sounds like no Obstruction to me
But CNN and MSNBC relies on stupid people
Those “nattering nabobs of negativity” kind of phrases still echo in my mind.
They never would have gotten to Nixon if they had not taken out Spiro Agnew first.
Then they did their job and kept the President out of trouble. So what’s your point CNN?
Trumps attorneys are saying they might not even release a response after all...
If he had issued orders to obstruct justice, he would have been charged with obstructing justice.
It’s obstruction when you defend yourself against a frame concocted by a bunch of vicious “lawyers” trying to run a game on you.
Mueller and Comey are judge, jury and executioner and no opposition to them is to be brooked. If they say yer guilty of their fake charges, why you’re a criminal if you say no.
Comey actually tried this with Martha Stewart and the judge in the case eventually threw it out. He charged her with perjury for pleading not guilty.
These two a**holes tried to take the United States back 1000 years to the days of cave “justice” inflicted by the thugs who called themselves the “nobles”.
McGahn saved Trump by disobeying him.
excepting that President had legal right (and I would argue at least, responsibility) to fire the entire Mueller witch-hunt, at any time he wished). In other words, this report is just more CNN propaganda bs. Makes them look like super-jerks... which is why their audience, ratings are plunging so badly.. the American public (even those who dislike President Trump) can see through CNN
Trump can fire anyone he wants to and since 100000% no collusion how do you get to obstruction:-) You don’t!
