    “That gives him time to practice his lies, like He hasn’t done it before, but the Democrats love it. It’s easy to tell when he’s lying, his lips are moving.”

    Bergeron -
    “There's got to be a pony in there somewhere!”

    Lost again-
    “Mueller concluded there was insufficient evidence that trump worked with the Russians, though he did not appreciate trump’s vigorous defense.”

    Comrade RiDal -
    “This should be hilarious, because now Mueller will have to answer questions from Republicans.”

    Still lost-
    “Ties to Russia. You mean how hilary sold them nuclear development rights in exchange for a “gift” to her foundation?”

    Worf-
    “Why hasn't Mueller found evidence of Russian collusion? Is it possible Trump didn't collude with the Russians?”

    high school-
    “If it isn’t exactly what his official report says then he has committed perjury.”

    A sincere ‘thank you’ to the enabling sycophants. Proving yet again by their verbiage that they in fact still haven’t read Mueller’s report in its entirety. The truth is difficult to accept, especially after years of defending the indefensible. Again, HRC’s description of this “ilk” is 100% accurate! Read the report! You’re welcome comrades.

    What exactly do you Liberals believe Mueller is going to say? If it isn’t exactly what his official report says then he has committed perjury, it is a no win for him if he doesn’t say exactly what his report says.

    This should be hilarious, because now Mueller will have to answer questions from Republicans.

    Simple questions like "When you reported "no evidence" were you telling the truth?"
    "Are yourealjy sure there was zero evidence?"

    Uh, oh.

    worf let me help you out.

    * Why hasn't Mueller found evidence of Russian collusion? Is it possible Trump didn't collude with the Russians? Collusion isn't a word found in the report, and the barr for conspiracy was set a bit high in that they didn't find signed contracts with the Russians.

    * Trump has had the most intense investigations of any president and all of the investigators hate him. Why?
    Absolutely false, you have nothing to back this up but Trumps own whoa is me tweets, prove "All" the investigators hate him, OK find me just one statement from Mueller's team.

    * There are many politicians with similar personalities and arrogance as Trump. Is there something about Mr Trump which scares Democrats.
    For now this is false unless one of your radio demi-god conservatives decide to run.

    * Why are Democrats all of a sudden concerned of moral behavior?
    You do Not speak for democrats, but do go on about what's moral when you blindly support an immoral person by any measure of moral

    Democrats aren't for open border.

    Where is your compassion...period.

    Worf,

    The better question is, why did Trump obstruct justice?

    Mueller found “substantial evidence” to support multiple counts of obstruction of justice, including 10 episodes involving President Donald Trump interfering with the investigation.

    If Trump is actuall innocent then why would he obstruct the investigation?

    Far from “clearing” or “exonerating” the Trump campaign for misconduct, Mueller found numerous links between individuals with ties to the Russian government and individuals associated with the Trump Campaign, but insufficient evidence “to charge a broader conspiracy” with Russian efforts to influence the election. Would an investigation free from obstruction have established evidence sufficient for criminal conspiracy charges?

    Every day Trump bellows, "No collusion!".

    Remember this;
    If you tell a lie and make it big enough and repeat it enough people will eventually start to believe it.

    Some thoughts and questions:

    * Why hasn't Mueller found evidence of Russian collusion? Is it possible Trump didn't collude with the Russians?

    * Trump has had the most intense investigations of any president and all of the investigators hate him. Why?

    * There are many politicians with similar personalities and arrogance as Trump. Is there something about Mr Trump which scares Democrats.

    * Why are Democrats all of a sudden concerned of moral behavior?

    * Why do Democrats favor open borders?

    * Where is the kindness and compassion for the millions of babies denied birth and the thousands of American killed because of southern border drug trafficking?

    Those are some bad, bad people, them Liechtensteiners.

    I thought you read the report. Mueller concluded there was insufficient evidence that trump worked with the Russians, though he did not appreciate trump’s vigorous defense.

    At what point do we kick Russia out of our government? They’d have to be in it, first. I guess you’re ignoring all putin is doing to try and negate trump’s sanctions against the mullahs because that does not fit with your narrative.

    Craig,
    You are correct about this being nothing but political theater. This is not the worst scandal, though.

    Watch Trump try to stop this. Barr will try to help him. Trump has hid behind NDA's, payoffs and cover ups his entire life. The Truth will eventually come out, I hope it's while he's in office. I don't understand the Trump supporters that also consider themselves "patriots". True patriots wouldn't stand for any other US President with ties to Russia.

    Mueller testifying before Congress will not settle anything whether or not he drops any bombshell. The hearing is sure to be a political spectacle with both sides of the aisle in their allotted five minutes in front of the cameras eagerly offering generous and pious contributions for the benefit folks back home watching on TV.

    Not much of an endorsement. But what has become the worst scandal in American political history has gone much too far to NOT have Mueller appear.

    Trump must be twisting in his chair.

    Barr can not stop Mueller from testifying. He is private citizen. Trump's shill can no longer stop Mueller from explaining to the American public his findings. Barr tried to spin this, and falsified verifiable facts.

    Trump will lose more cases in the courts and those who have illegally defied Congress will testify.

    Let's just hope that our memories will not be bombarded as they are with the daily lies from Trump causing us to forget the reason this report was done.

    Trump and his supporters are hoping that this will fade away, as he does more of his daily distractions and falsehoods.

    Let's keep him under pressure and get Mueller on the stand.

    Not a single supporter could have read the Mueller report and still say Trump is vindicated of all charges. The indictments, the convictions, and the jail times being served by Trump's inner circle sure tell us otherwise.

    Finally. Something worth paying attention to.

    I agree with Schiff and Nadler. Mueller is the lynchpin of accusations against Trump. It all starts (lends, but probably not) with Mueller.

    He has to testify under penalty of perjury. He can’t just walk away after a 2-year investigation.

    But, Mueller should not expect this to be over in one day. On the other hand, if Mueller’s testimony is really a nothing burger, I expect Nadler and Schiff to cut it short.

    Bob Mueller did not exonerate Trump.

    Trump has had more contact with Russians before and after the elections then should ever be allowed.

    Trump's election committee has had more contact with Russians then should ever be allowed.

    Trump cried out to Russia for help with his election.

    Trump was trying to build a big fancy motel in Russia.

    Trump's family still has ongoing business with Russia.

    Russia is still bombarding our social media and Trump people are spreading it.

    At what point do we kick Russia out of our government?
