Trump briefly admits to Russia 'helping me to get elected'


For the first time, Donald Trump publicly acknowledged Russia's role in elevating him to power. He changed direction soon after, but it was too late.

I think the point is he rephrased into a lie after hearing himself tell the truth. I remember his public encouragement calling for the Russians to steal Clinton emails. That IMO is enough to impeach.

Trump still thinks the courts can prevent impeachment (they can't)


If Donald Trump plans to sue to make sure impeachment doesn't happen, he should probably start working on a Plan B.

Stepping down, Mueller delivers a message Trump didn't want to hear


Mueller didn't have to issue a public statement, but a chose a few key points he wanted the public to know. That makes his choices that much more important.

For discussion, I believe it is important to understand who wrote the OLC memo saying the DoJ cannot indict a sitting President with a crime. It was written by the Nixon administration in 1973 and affirmed by the Bush administration in 2000. The legal remedy is defined in the Constitution and Mueller is clearly referring impeachment and further conspiracy investigation to Congress.

"WHAT IS THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT POLICY?
In 1973, in the midst of the Watergate scandal engulfing President Richard Nixon, the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel adopted in an internal memo the position that a sitting president cannot be indicted. Nixon resigned in 1974, with the House of Representatives moving toward impeaching him.

“The spectacle of an indicted president still trying to serve as Chief Executive boggles the imagination,” the memo stated.

The department reaffirmed the policy in a 2000 memo, saying... show more

It is also clear the conspiracy investigation into the Trump Campaign in 2016 was also getting too close to Trump himself so Barr shut it down before sufficient evidence could be gathered. Mueller's message to Congress includes continuing that investigation with the work product he preserved for them and passed to other agencies in NY and VA.

HUD official on ethics law: 'I honestly don't care anymore'


When federal officials declare their indifference to legal limits, there's a problem.
http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/hud-official-ethics-law-i-honestly-dont-care-anymore

HUD is a necessary social agency that needs transparency and greater oversight. What we are seeing is corruption at its finest championed by a man who spent his life discriminating against people of color in housing, not paying contractors, and denigrating the poor. He does this while exploiting people of color with modern day slavery as well.

We don't know what this is about but it is a significant event considering he has not spoken publicly throughout the investigation. Something has changed recently.. 11 an Press Conference today.
