An American Coup D'etat?

This has gotten completely out of control. I never thought I would see our country's politics reduced to the degrading levels of a Banan...

Mr. Mueller, Your Fifteen Minutes are Up. Please Leave . . . Oh, and Dogs

Mr. Mueller, go away, sir, go away.

That's enough.

You spent north of $34 million, had a staff of dozens, interviewed hundreds of witnesses and issued only God knows how many subpoenas, and after some two years produced a nothing burger report of some 448 pages in length that concluded the President did not collude with the Russians and that there was insufficient evidence to charge him with obstruction of justice. That's not enough, I guess. No. You had to come back for one more carefully orchestrated slam of the President by way of an eight minute statement to a press gaggle not allowed to ask questions. In that statement you did your best to "dirty up" the President, a la Comey and Hillary, but added nothing new or interesting. All you did was provide some slimy innuendo that the Congress should proceed with impeachment, a recipe for sure-fire political disaster for the Dems, by the way.

Clearly, it would seem, that Mueller seeks to escape testifying under oath and avoiding tough questions from the Republicans: e.g., When did you know that there was no there there on collusion? Why did you continue "investigating" after that? Was it to try to set a perjury and obstruction trap for the President and his staff? Why didn't you explore the origins of the Steele "dossier"? What about Hillary collusion with the Russians and other foreigners? You managed to investigate people for tax fraud and taxi medallion abuse, but not the abuse of FISA, "unmasking," framing American citizens with FBI informants, the role of MI5/MI6 in all of this, etc.?

I say, yank him in and ask. He doesn't get to say when the game ends.

On the other hand, I am tired of his pompous virtue signaling, and want him to just go away and write that book, the one nobody will read . . .

On a more pleasant note, two days ago while at the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office registering my two dogs, I heard barking. I asked the nice lady whether there was a dog pound on the premises and, if so, could I take a look. She said, "Of course you can!" Off I went, and immediately spied a wonderful young--about 18 months old--German Shepherd mix in the last cage; I declared I wanted him. So the Diplowife and I interviewed the pooch, and fell in love with the guy. Overcoming any good sense we might have left after all these years, we said we'd take him, and did.

He got a mixed reception from our two established Diplodogs, but gradually they worked things out. Charlie is now our new four-pawed son.  Picture follows.

  2. Yeah subpoena his ass.

    Mueller not the dog.

    Though I expect the dog has far better communications skills.

  5. A bit of Mueller's press statement appeared on the news down here. I was struck by the bit that said there was no evidence that "the Donald" was innocent.

    There was obviously no evidence that he had done anything wrong either so given the way the Justice system is supposed to work he is therefore in the eyes of the law innocent.

    Unless of course I have misunderstood the American justice system as it is supposed to be.

    1. Oh, well, you know that the innocent until proven guilty only applies to the Democrats/Progressives et al (Jussie Smollet for one). If you're on the other side, it is guilty until proven innocent.

    2. David, you understand exactly how it's SUPPOSED to be. Prosecutors don't get to be judge and jury, also.

  6. Oh and reference to the newly acquired pooch well done.

    A home without a dog [or several] is just a house.

  7. So Mueller is frustrated that Trump would not participate in the attempted take down and coup of his own presidency? Mueller the Deep State hack. Impeachment? Come ahead on with that commie libs.

  8. Indict Mueller as part of the Seditious Conspiracy against the legitimately elected U.S. Government. Make Prisons Full Again.

  9. Off topic but something you follow:
    Contrary to MSM reports, the section of wall built on private land by we the people is complete. “We built up a mountain where the @USArmy Corps of Engineers said it was impossible to build! NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!”
    Since it was a startup and in an area that the Army Corp of Engineers said it could not be built, it took longer than the 1 mile per day of wall being built claimed by Fisher Sand and Gravel.
    See the link for updates and video of the construction progress.

  10. "I say, yank him in and ask. He doesn't get to say when the game ends."

    And if he testifies before Congress the Dems will give him sweeping immunity, yes?

  11. Good for you! I have two rescued springer boys and they provide a lot of entertainment. Hate to see bad things happen to good dogs.

  12. A caller to a talk show here in Boston said that Mueller at his presser looked a lot like a prisoner of war in Hanoi reading from a prepared script. And yesterday, after a sitdown with Barr, he walked back his claim that he didn’t offer a finding on Trump’s obstruction of justice because of DOJ policy. (Won’t see this in the MSM.)

    1. There is a person I watch called "Body Language expert". Her commentary was that Mueller looked stressed, and had not prepared to read the statement, as he read it verbatim, rather than looking at camera and being able to recite portions, without looking down. She noted that when he mentioned testifying to congress, that is something that invoked fear, and finally at the end, she mentions that it seems like he was under duress. He claimed in the statement he was not forced to make this appearance. But his body language seems to imply that somebody had some dirt on him and was using it to leverage this statement. So Maybe "Nads" Nadler, who was prepared in advance for press conference about this, threatened Mueller to do this, or something he did in the past wasn't going to stay covered up.

    2. Good observations ... If didn’t take Nads half an hour to say that Mueller’s presser said everything and therefore he wouldn’t need to call him to testify. It might have been that Mueller was Nads puppet in this theater ... and Nads might have even written Mueller’s script.

  13. The three boys are happy! Looks like the band is back together! Where are the "groupies'?

  14. I for one would be very happy if Bob Mueller just went away forever and we never heard from him again.

  15. He pulled a "Lois Lerner" without taking the 5th. Graham needs to bring him in for a sit down and see what he has to say. If not, the fix is in.

  16. As Mark Levin commented, aside from Muler's misinformation and misinterpretation of the facts of the case, he looked downright "feeble". I agree, and moreover, recognize his sudden feebleness with the usual hang-dog look of a criminal in the shadow of the gallows, trying to evoke mercy through avoidance of indictment! Oh, the Poor man, dying from old age, not worth jail-time, nor prosecution! Not working on me! Every last one of these co-conspitrators in the COUP and cover-up NEED to be charged tried, and sentenced - no matter how long it takes or how much it costs! This was a criminal assault on every citizen who abides and survives by the grace of The U.S. Constitution!

  17. An uninformed question (at which I excel):

    Is Mueller subject to subpoena and questioning about his role in this investigation? Or is there a statute or rule or even a tradition that a SP is out of bounds for such treatment?

    I keep hearing vague mutterings from Democrats that the entire investigation process is sub rosa and cannot be questioned outside of the final report or resulting indictments - that it is handled much like a grand jury proceeding and can only be disclosed or questioned in certain limited circumstances.

    I suspect that this is their wishful thinking, as no one has been able to cite any law supporting this assertion.

    1. Mueller is subject to congressional subpoena. Everybody in the US is with the only exceptions being claims of separation of powers privileges by the executive or legislative branches.
      The Constitution is the only controlling document for legislative authority or constraint.

    2. ... and by Constitution, I mean that yes, Mueller would be smart to invoke his 5th amendment rights against self-incrimination and refuse to testify... Now, Congress can force it by issuing him blanket immunity, in which case, he theoretically cannot refuse to testify (I think there's still some legal question around this), and will be jailed if he refuses to do so on account of covering for his cohorts.
