    Nadler just said he did not get any "paperwork' from the W.H. They will "stonewall" it forever. I guess I said so before; sorry the Dem's think they have the "oversight job" but Trump and his cronies won't budge. Yes it is an "banana republic" by now.

    Also Trump said that he has no problem releasing the Mueller "report" to the "public". I guess another "lie". He already told Barr what to do. As the "news" said he will "weaponize" the GOP to have plenty of rebuttals ready. He hired in already another bunch of "lawyers" to defend or "undo" anything in the report.

    Since Barr promised "loyalty" as shown with the "veto" signing where he praised Trump into "heaven", then I bet the "public" will only see the "fight" but not the "report". Yes , that is the American way! Bring the barf bucket please.

    Let the "wrestling party" begin; I'm selling tickets! Ha ha.

    If I was Mueller, I would wait until just about a couple of month before the 2020 elections; that will have more effect.

    Every news source that you think of has speculated about when Mueller will release his report, and what effect that will have on the country.

    I occasionally get reports from The Daily Caller, the conservative site started by FOX commentator Tucker Carlson:

    https://dailycaller.com/2019/03/21/mueller-report-faq/?utm_medium=push&utm_source=daily_caller&utm_campaign=push

    As is typical of many right wing sources, it contains a mix of truth and fiction. The story in the link above claims that the Steele Dossier was paid for by the Clinton administration and the Russian government. It's hard to imagine why Russia would pay for a report that would be damaging to itself, but there IS some truth to the idea that money from the Clinton campaign provided at least some funding for the report, even though Mrs. Clinton and her campaign managers were unaware that campaign money was used to pay for the report:

    Arizona, as usual "muddy" the waters is the "motto", so let the "children" fight it out in the sand box ; sorry all of this is laughable. That is what you get if you don't make enforceable rules/laws/limits what Presidents can do, as well have "solid" base laws which don't need interpretation by a zillion lawyers.

    Robert Mueller has submitted his report to the Attorney General. It's about to get real...

    Mueller report sent to attorney general, signaling his Russia investigation has ended - Washington Post

    Barr has said that key findings might be made available to the public as early as this weekend. Whatever is revealed, we can expect Trump to Tweet, "NO COLLUSION!" Any bets?

    The Mueller report was released to Barr today; it shows Mueller has no "brains" except Republican "brains" . He could have waited to solve the loose ends, like Roger Stone; the other Manafort trial coming up and what about Kussner and Ivanka's missteps. He should have waited until at lest 3 or four month before the 2020 election. Giving it to Barr then I know the results beforehand. Yes an awful stupid country which still lives in the stone age. Trump is golfing and enjoys this stupid circus. Unbelievable, where are the brains. Naive, Naive.

    Day 1 through 5, 122 lawyers and other parties sift through every word and punctuation mark. The AG calls a meeting with the president. They have serious evidence about 274 illegal things. It's ours now. Throw it in the fireplace and tell Fox news No Collusion. No Obstruction of Justice. No comment until I tweet overnight.

    Hopefully there's a dozen duplicates in storage somewhere. Public deserves the truth and facts without a spin.

    Did Mueller get "threats" from an certain "corner"? What was the "hurry"? He absolutely did not finish the job, let alone honed in on the Trump family. Was he scared or fed up with Trump's scolding? Kussner met several times with the Russians and loaned money from them. The "timing" of all of this is awful and stupid. On top of that give it to Barr who clearly showed during the signing of the border "veto" which side he was on; like being against the Constitution by approving Trump's "emergency" at the border, as well praised Trump for the "veto". Mueller should have sent also an copy of the full report to Pelosi if he had an "backbone" but yeah he's an Republican so forget it.; now the Dem's will have to fight forever to get the "complete" thing. I guess all Republicans are "traitors" if it concerns Trump. As I've said a million times, this is and stays an untrustworthy corrupt country which refuses to change.

    Robert Mueller has confined his remit to just the Russian collusion investigation farming out all the other stuff to other prosecutors. While Mueller’s investigation has led to 215 criminal charges, 38 indictments or pleas, and five prison sentences so far, that other stuff may prove to be more condemning of Trump and the Trump Organization. The Atlantic has listed all the other investigations that are ongoing after Mueller leaves the scene.

    The Atlantic: After Mueller: The Ongoing Investigations Surrounding Trump

    The United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York has at least three investigations that have not yet concluded: 1) the financial dealings of Trump’s inauguration committee, which took in a record $107 million for the festivities surrounding his inauguration, 2) whether Manafort, as chairman of Trump’s campaign, illegally coordinated with a pro-Trump super PAC, Rebuilding America Now, and whether that super PAC also received donations from people connected to Qatar and other Middle Eastern countries, and 3) Cohen's communications with Trump and Trump’s representatives following the FBI raid of Cohen’s office in April 2018.

    The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia has three unresolved cases under investigation: 1) the indictment of Kamil Ekim Alptekin, an associate of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, charged for acting as an agent of the Turkish government and lying to the FBI, 2) charges against another Flynn associate, Bijan Kian, for failing to register as a foreign agent after working on behalf of the Turkish government, and 3) the indictment of Elena Alekseevna Khusyaynova, the accountant for the Internet Research Agency, the Russian troll farm that authorities believe created fake social-media accounts to influence United States elections.

    The United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia has ongoing cases related to the WikiLeaks release of hacked emails from the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party: 1) Roger Stone was arrested and charged with making false statements, witness tampering, and obstructing an official proceeding, 2) Michael Flynn the former national security adviser, pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI but has not been sentenced, because he is still cooperating with Mueller, 3) Rick Gates Rick, a business associate of Manafort, charged with conspiracy and failure to register as a foreign agent, among other charges has pleaded guilty and cooperating with Mueller’s investigation, 4) Konstantin Kilimnik, another Manafort associate, has been indicted on charges of obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice, 5) Maria Butina, a Russian national attending graduate school in the United States, pleaded guilty to conspiring to act as an unregistered Russian agent and is cooperating pending her sentence, and 6) three Russian businesses, including the Internet Research Agency, and 13 Russian nationals charged with federal crimes committed while they allegedly attempted to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

    The Department of Justice (Public Integrity Section) is investigating Elliott Broidy, a prominent Republican fundraiser, for possibly attempting to cash in on his connections with the Trump administration by requesting millions of dollars from foreign governments in exchange for pushing the administration to take actions benefiting those countries.

    The State attorneys general of Washington, D.C., and New Jersey, have each subpoenaed the records of Trump’s inauguration committee, indicating a widening prosecutorial interest into that committee’s practices.

    New York State and New York City tax departments have at least four ongoing investigations into Trump’s taxes after a New York Times investigation found that Trump benefited from a $400 million tax scheme. The New York attorney general is investigating Trump Organization projects, including four major Trump Hotel and Tower projects and the organization’s failed attempt to purchase the Buffalo Bills football team with suspect loans from Deutsche Bank and Investors Bank.

    The New York attorney general also has an ongoing criminal investigation into the activities of the Trump Foundation, even though the foundation is dissolving.

    The state attorneys general for Maryland and the District of Columbia are suing Trump for allegedly violating the emoluments clause of the Constitution.

    The Manhattan district attorney has indicted Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman, on 16 charges, including mortgage fraud to ensure that a presidential pardon will not get Manafort out of jail.

    In addition the various Congressional committees -- the House Intelligence Committe, the House Finacial Srvices Committee, the House Oversight Committee, the House Judiciary Committee, the House Ways and Means Committee, the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and the Senate Intelligence Committee are all actively pursuing different aspects of possible criminal conduct by the president and his staff. They have enough on their plates to last well beyond the 2020 election.

    Sorry for the long list. I just wanted to emphasize the enormous scope of the ongoing investigations and future trials that will consume Trump and his Tweets and the media for the next couple of years if not longer. The Mueller report is just the end of the beginning.

    There must be an impeachable offense somewhere in that list. No?

    Schmidt ; good work, but did not see anything related to Deutsche Bank, unless I overlooked it. Looking at your summary, then I get the feeling that "processing" all these items will likely take well beyond 2020. In other words, if the Mueller report does not shows anything "criminal", then we may be stuck with this "mobster" for a while and even beyond 2020.

    In other words the "party" is not over by a long shot ; except in Mar- a-Lago there is an dinner with prominent Trump supporters including Linsey Graham, where they likely renew their "loyalty" to Trump. Also Pompeo believes now "god" did sent Trump to "save" this country and Israel. Hallejuja, "god saves the King" Barf, Barf.

    It will be interesting to see how McCain ties into any of the Mueller report. Several commentators have suggested that Trump was given (ie leak from DOJ to WH) several days warning that the report was going to drop, and he was provided a very board overview as to the contents of the report, but no details. The information he was given was enough to go on the offensive last weekend when he wigged out with his biggest tweet storm since taking office. The speculation is that last weekend was when he got the bad news, and he started attacking McCain. He is likely blaming McCain because McCain can't fight back to refute anything Trump says about him. Trump can continue to make up lies about McCain, and there is nobody to stop Trump from blaming McCain anything, Trump can even suggest McCain committed crimes and lied to the public. A dead person can't refute any charges, let alone disprove a negative (ie when did McCain stop cheating on his wife?)

    I think we need to brace ourselves for a report that does not implicate Trump directly with any crimes connected to russia.

    There is likely to be a lot good news otherwise, but we all know Trump will be saying every day, over and over and over and over and over and over "I told you so, I told you so". Even if the reports directly says some like "Trump has repeatedly lied about....XXXX But, lying to the american public is not a crime, even if the president lies every day, about everything, its not a crime. As long as he does not commit any crimes, he is free to lie as much as he wants, about anything he wants".
