No. Now, the question really becomes does Mueller have a surprise for everyone later today?
And, I think the Republicans have waited too long to go after Trump. Any kind of action against the administration will take time to play out. And so will the rest of Mueller’s investigation. My guess is that they have Trump hanging around their neck, as well as an unpopular bill come November. Just a wait and see.
When the FBI can’t find a crime to charge you for they get you for lying to the FBI !
The feds identify some fact that they can prove. It need not be inherently incriminating; it might be whether you were at a particular meeting, or whether you talked to someone about the existence of the investigation. then government’s chickenshit false statement trap works — even though the government agents set it up from the start. Now, however weak or strong their evidence is of the issue they are investigating, they’ve got you on a Section 1001 charge — a federal felony. In effect, they are manufacturing felonies in the course of investigations. ALL BS …
Folks on MSNBC are now saying that this means that he is cooperating and because he won’t be sentenced on this guilty plea for perhaps months, he is now obligated to continue to cooperate. Because there is so much they could have him on and prove, this very light guilty plea means he gave up something pretty good already.
The only way I think that this could possibly play as a negative to the administration is that when Pence became aware for Flynn lying to him was a couple of weeks after senior officials… including perhaps Trump became aware of his meetings. I’m not sure that this actually harms the administration unless someone was acted about the earlier briefings and they denied knowledge… Hummm
So - as usual - everyone on the Right can easily be convicted for the smallest infraction; everyone on the Left is untouchable no matter how outrageously treasonous and capital criminal their crimes are.
We need justice reform fast, or this country will not last no matter what else we do.
