Yea, subpoenas don’t work like this. You can’t just pass.

This is your president, screaming at you that there was no collusion & no obstruction (although that’s not what the Mueller Report concludes on either count.) If true, he would want Mueller to testify & exonerate him.

Typical of this WH, they left out the key facts: Mueller convicted Trump’s campaign manager & his deputy. Trump’s lawyer is in prison & Trump is an unindicted coconspirator in that case. Longtime ally Roger Stone awaits trial. Russians are charged with attacking our election.

That’s exactly what I heard too.

Actually, impeachment doesn’t add much to subpoenas. But it arguably makes it easier to get grand jury material Mueller accumulated, although I think there is a strong argument that Congress is already engaged in sufficiently judicial-like proceedings to warrant the turnover.

From - “the cover up is often worse than the crime.” She says in plain sight the Pres. is obstructing justice & engaging in a cover up. She notes the House investigations r bearing results. She “implies” they are working toward impeachment proceedings.

Actually, I wrote against Barr’s confirmation. That aside, I appreciate the points y’all are making & think it’s important for us to consider each other’s views. Thank you for sharing yours with me.

Pelosi on Trump “taking a pass” on funding a signature infrastructure bill: “maybe it was lack of confidence on his part-he couldn’t match the greatness of the challenge”

As Sec’y Mnuchin testifies, keep in mind that executive privilege preserves a president’s ability to get candid advice from advisors as he formulates policy. It doesn’t protect his tax returns from years earlier or even the present. It’s not meant to help him conceal misconduct.

Yes, to my point, no evidence of bribery based on what’s here but certainly reason to investigate, especially given indicia Trump’s finances were in a condition that made him a risk for banks.

My (likely unpopular) view: Pelosi is handing Trump masterfully, signaling to anyone listening there is a move towards impeachment (President is engaged in a “cover up”) w/out giving him a sound bite w/the word impeachment he can weaponize. Even more unpopular view: patience.

Former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman was convicted in federal court of bribery for appointing businessman Richard Scrushy to a state board in exchange for loans related to a failed lottery.

Comments are asking if this is a crime. The easiest example would be bribery if there was an agreement to make the loan in exchange for the appointment under 18 USC 201. Not clear that’s the case here.
