Elderly Americans are dying angry because they did not get to read the Mueller report

Published

It has been 657 days since special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel to investigate Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign.

While the investigation has resulted in public criminal indictments against 34 individuals — including Trump’s campaign chairman, deputy campaign chairman, National Security Advisor and longtime personal attorney, Mueller has yet to publicly release a report on what he has found during his 21 month investigation.

As NPR reported Tuesday, that is leading to a situation where elderly Americans are dying before learning about the extent of Trump’s relationship with Russia and obstruction of justice.

The family of Mitchell Tendler, a World World II veteran, explained his last coherent thought before dying in the ER.

“It just was quiet for a little while and then he just sits up in bed halfway and looks at me and he goes, ‘Sh*t, I’m not going to see the Mueller report, am I?’ And that was really the last coherent thing that he said,” explained his son, Walter Tendler.

Mitchell Tendler is not alone.

“For nearly two years, those who find fault with President Trump have been hanging onto hope that Mueller will produce evidence that will be damaging to the president,” NPR explained. “These expectations are so high that there are even those who in their last years are hoping to survive just long enough to see the conclusion.”

“I know exactly how he feels. I feel the same way. I’ve been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer,” Richard Armstrong, 94, told NPR. “I was hoping to live to see the outcome of what I think it should be — justice.”

NPR said, “these stories show just how much communities across America are eagerly waiting news from the special counsel — and it’s even more urgent for those Americans approaching the end of their lives.”

Published

on

Incumbent Republican senators in swing states and blue states find themselves caught between a rock and a hard place. On one hand, criticizing President Donald Trump can result in a burdensome GOP primary battle; on the other hand, being perceived as pro-Trump can be the kiss of death in places where Trump is unpopular. And according to a report by Eli Yokley for Morning Consult’s website, things aren’t getting any better for incumbent GOP senators who are considered vulnerable in the 2020 election.

While the House Intelligence Committee is spearheading impeachment with its investigation into President Donald Trump’s Ukraine scandal, it seems Republican Rep. Devin Nunes of California can’t stop obsessing about the Steele Dossier.

According to the Daily Beast, the ranking member of the committee launched into an exchange during the closed impeachment inquiry hearings about the dossier on Thursday with Gordon Sondland, the ambassador to the European Union who is at the center of the Ukraine scandal. He was a point person in Trump’s efforts to get the Ukrainians to announce an investigation into the 2016 election as well as former Vice President Joe Biden in exchange for favorable treatment from the White House.

Trump was ‘yelling and screaming’: Reporter says GOP source fears Trump is ‘not in control of himself’ — and getting even worse

Published

on

CNN correspondent Jamie Gangel reported Thursday that Republicans at the contentious White House meeting the previous day featuring President Donald Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi were deeply alarmed by the GOP leader’s behavior and demeanor.

Citing a Republican source, who reportedly conferred with others who attended the meeting, said they were “completely shaken” and “shell shocked” by the president.

Pelosi and fellow Democrats had tried to make that point publicly on Wednesday, saying that Trump had a “meltdown,” went on a “diatribe,” and was insulting to the House speaker. Pelosi added that she was also concerned about the president’s “health.” But at least in public, some Republicans tried to turn the tables on Pelosi, saying it was she who behaved inappropriately by walking out of the meeting. However, even these Republicans didn’t really deny that Trump was acting bullying and insulting toward the speaker.
