    Bombshell Report Finds Trump Likely Obstructed Justice And Could Be Impeached

    By Jason Easley on Tue, Oct 10th, 2017 at 11:41 am

    A 108-page analysis of Trumpís actions in the firing of James Comey done by the Brookings Institute concludes that the President likely obstructed justice and that Special Counsel Robert Mueller could recommend impeachment.

    The report concluded:

    presidential-obstruction-of-justice-the-case-of-donald-j-trump-final

    http://15130-presscdn-0-89.pagely.ne...rump-final.pdf

    The findings from Barry H. Berke, Noah Bookbinder, and Norm Eisen are so damning because they donít contain conjecture. It is an analysis of the known facts and the laws involved with the behavior of Trump and his associates. The deliberations and discussions in the report likely mirror those that are going on with Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his staff.

    Contrary to what Trump and the White House claim, the investigation is not fake news or a nothing burger. There are literally more than 100 pages of facts that support that this president has been violating the law while trying to sabotage the Russia investigation.

    The cold hard truth is that Mueller might recommend that Trump is impeached, and if Republicans still control Congress, they could ignore his findings. This course of action would require them to put their necks on the line for Trump which is something that Congressional Republicans have shown no interest in doing. If Democrats control the House, and Mueller recommends impeachment, it is a certainty that Trump will face an impeachment trial in the Senate.

    There is a lot riding on the 2018 election, and if America wants to rid itself of Trump the fastest way to do so would be to elect a Democratic House and Senate majority.
    the sentence that stood out to me was this one:

    Mueller could recommend impeachment? That's not what he is there for but it took 23 comments for a DUer to point this out.

    23. Impeachment is a Political Solution not a Legal Solution.

    Muellerís group is impaneled to investigate and answer if any laws were broken. If there were, then Mueller would go to the Courts to obtain a Indictment and send the case to trial. That OP is offering an opinion about Impeachment, since that would only be up to the House of Representatives. Mueller wouldnít intervene or recommend Impeachment since he could be called as a Witness.

    36. Just more evidence that will be ignored by Congress.

    Yawn.

    Until Dems hold the house Trump will remain the symbol and soul of the US.
    He could walk into Congress with a gun and start killing Congressmen and they would do nothing.

    Our only hope is the 2018 election.

    They're so funny when they get excited over meaningless think-tank barf.

    The Norman L. Eisen who campaigned for Obama, served as Obama's "Special Counsel for Ethics and Government Reform" from 2009-2011, and as Ambassador to the Czech Republic from 2011-2014 (3 1/2 years)? He and Noah Bookbinder are both part of the reliably liberal CREW. Writing their conclusion was the first part of their "investigation".

    A think tank's opinion, of whatever partisan leaning, is not evidence.
    I support UNexit: Get the US out of the UN; Get the UN out of the US!

    BIG CHEETO Is Watching You!

    Note to "Warpy": I voted for Donald Trump! I would do so again!

    ' Bombshell '...

    What does that word even mean anymore?

    Brookings has never solved its stance on the FOX-News viewership-issue from the late 90's yet.

    Americans don't want news filtered through an out-of-date ideology.
    Americans will reject conservative-news.
    After the Lewinsky-hearings, Americans will reject FOX-News.
    Ratings giant, FOX, may tumble


    etc. *yawn*
