What's coming in 30 minutes or whatever is not the Mueller report.

It's some kind of document produced by Bill Barr, who was hand selected by Trump because he didn't want Rosenstein in charge of this process.

The procedure is a direct result of Trump's efforts to interfere.

This is very strange. The President is an unindicted co-conspirator in two felony campaign finance violations. It was stated in open court.

There’s no reasonable argument why Barr, who was installed by Trump to oversee the Mueller investigation, should get access to the Mueller report and not the American people.

The American people don’t need a summary by Barr. They need the full report now.

We already know the Mueller investigation ended with Trump as an unindicted co-conspirator in multiple felonies, the conviction of Trump’s campaign manager and national security adviser, and indictment of Trump’s longtime political adviser.

But apparently it’s a “win” for Trump

WOW

"Since the tax cuts were passed, the 1,000 largest public companies have actually reduced employment, on balance. They have announced the elimination of nearly 140,000 jobs — which is almost double the 73,000 jobs they say they have created"

Can someone explain to me why Elizabeth Warren’s claim to Native American heritage warrants continued, obsessive coverage by the political media but the fact that at least 12 women accused Trump of sexual assault was forgotten as soon as he was elected?

There is strong evidence emerging that Republicans stole a Congressional seat in North Carolina by destroying, falsifying, and manipulating absentee ballots.

This is an affront to democracy.

They can’t be allowed to get away with it.
