You may disagree with President Trump ending the special prosecutor, But it’s not a crime

Meanwhile the media pushes another false narrative.

As Chief Executive, Donald Trump ending the Mueller probe would be exercising his Constitutional authority.

The Constitution gives the authority to Congress to impeach the President. The Founding Fathers didn’t think unelected federal employees should have that authority. The Department of Justice and the FBI are under the Executive Branch of government. Donald Trump is over them. He’s the elected head of the executive branch. You may disagree with President Trump ending the special prosecutor, but it is not a crime.

So if he did it on Twitter (he didn’t), he is still not guilty of obstruction.

The Daily Mail reports, “Trump was just ‘stating his opinion’ when he told Jeff Sessions to put an end to Russia probe as the White House denies obstruction and says the president never gave his AG an ‘order.’

The White House says President Trump was not giving Attorney General Jeff Sessions ‘an order’ when he mentioned the nation’s top law enforcement officer by name and said he should ‘stop’  the Russia probe.

Faced by a new round of accusations the president was deliberately trying to obstruct special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the president thinks it’s time for the probe to ‘come to an end’ – but was not instructing Sessions to end it.

‘The president’s stating his opinion. It’s not an order,’ said Sanders, engaging in a delicate rhetorical dance over the Russia probe even as Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort is on trial for money laundering and tax charges.

She allowed that it was pretty clear when Trump was giving her an order as opposed to simply stating his views.

‘But he’s been I think crystal clear about how he feels about the investigation from the beginning,’ she said.  

Trump ratcheted up his pressure on Sessions, which has gone on for more than a year, when he said he ‘should’ put an end to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s long-running Russia probe

‘Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now,’ the president tweeted. ‘Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to USA!’

Sanders referenced ‘corruption’ in the FBI, and said the probe was based on the golden showers dossier – when in fact there were other strands of information at the start of the Russia probe, including warnings from overseas about the conduct of Trump foreign policy aides.

‘The entire investigation is based off of a dirty discredited dossier that was paid for an opposing campaign and had a lot of corruption within the entity which was overseeing it, which was Peter Strzrok, James Comey, Andrew McCabe,’ she said, reeling off high-level FBI officials who were there during the inception of the probe.

AOC Tries to Use Meteorological Event to Push Climate Change, Gets Harshly Rebuked by Expert

You live by social media sword, you die by the social media sword.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been one of the most avid social media users in Congress, but that distinction has backfired far more often than it hasn’t for her. AOC, as she has advertised herself, is undoubtedly one of the millennial-ist members of Congress to ever saunter about the Capitol.  Her constant social media PR and far-left ideologies appeal to a wide swath of the American youth, giving the political newbie a gravitational pull that her fellow democrats have not yet experienced. But this also means that every tidbit of AOC’s life will be subject to criticism, since every tidbit of her life is being broadcast. Her latest social media stunt saw the New York House Rep panicking over a tornado warning in Washington DC and attempting to draw a parallel to global warming. Meteorologists were quick to rebuke her. Here is the frantic video: https://youtu.be/zBG-BmMdP70 The Green New Deal advocate then shared a story published by PBS in March questioning if climate change makes tornadoes worse and put emphasis on a quote from the piece that read, “Rather than lie squarely in the Great Plains, America’s tornadoes appear to be sliding into the Midwest and Southeast.” “Tornadoes are challenging to link to climate change links due to their nature (geographically, limited, acute patterns, how they form, etc.),” Ocasio-Cortez told her followers as she reviewed the article. “But we DO know that tornadoes HAVE been changing. They are no longer being limited to the Great Plains, and are shifting to other regions of the country.” Then came the clincher. “The climate crisis is real y’all … guess we’re at casual tornadoes in growing regions of the country,” she later wrote on Instagram. That theory was quickly shot down, however. Meteorologist Ryan Maue, though, argued that she was confusing climate change with “weather” in…

RED HANDED: 2020 Candidate Tied to Early SpyGate Setup

Bill Barr has his work cut out for him.

President Trump is officially on the warpath. After literally years of talk about the Mueller report, the document has come and gone.  Its conclusions were a resounding win for this President, and, in the minds of many Americans, the democrats are again acting like sore losers. This accusation is particularly pointed given their behavior back in November of 2016. Trump is now pushing forward with his investigation of the investigators, aimed at getting to the bottom of why and how the entire debacle began. The latest reporting from the Washington Post puts one of the 2020 democrats squarely in the midst of it. Former Vice President Joe Biden was reportedly one of the few Obama administration officials who participated in secretive meetings during the early stages of the Obama-era intelligence community’s initial operations regarding suspected Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign. That tidbit was contained deep inside a 7,700-plus word Washington Post article published June 23, 2017 in which the newspaper also detailed the highly compartmentalized nature of the original Russia interference investigation and the manner in which other U.S. intelligence agencies were deliberately kept in the dark.  Part of the efforts eventually involved unsubstantiated and ultimately discredited charges made by the Christopher Steele dossier that Trump campaign officials were colluding with Russia. The move could have major implications as 2020 rolls around. Biden’s largely unreported role in the initial Obama administration meetings on the matter of Russian interference could spark further questions now that Attorney General William Barr has appointed a U.S. attorney to investigate the origins of the Russia collusion claims. Biden is currently the far-and-away frontrunner of the crowded 2020 democratic field, besting his closest opponent Bernie Sanders by double digits in the latest polling.
