NEW: Rick Gates deserves leniency for his “extraordinary assistance” in the Mueller probe, prosecutors said They aren't opposing Gates's request for probation and no prison time, @AndyNewsNowInDC reports
“We thought it was going to be 4 or 5" articles of impeachment, press secretary Stephanie Grisham says on Fox News. "Bribery, Mueller, emoluments—I don’t know where all that went," Grisham says. Obstruction article is “code for he didn't play nice with us. ... That‘s silly.”
I was impressed how they managed to get in Mueller’s obstruction of justice arguments as support to his Obstruction of Congress charge. Presumably means they can bring that up during the trial without relitigating Mueller
Why didn't Mueller charge Joseph Mifsud for lying to the FBI?
Here’s what Mueller said: ➡️ Russia interfered in our election to help Trump. ➡️ Russians made numerous contacts with the campaign. ➡️ Campaign welcomed their help. ➡️ No one reported these contacts or interference to FBI. ➡️ They lied to cover it up.
Wow, Mr. President, that’s a good one. Was that like your answers to Mr. Mueller’s questions, or did you write this one yourself?
