Rudy Giuliani whines that it was ‘very unethical’ for Mueller to not exonerate Trump on obstruction

Published

on

Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani is happy that his client has been cleared by special counsel Robert Mueller for conspiring with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential election — but he’ still bitter that the special counsel didn’t give Trump a total pass on obstruction of justice.

According to Attorney General Bob Barr, Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election did not make a determination about whether the president’s actions constituted obstruction and merely laid out both sides of the argument.

Giuliani claimed that this shows Mueller’s team was divided about whether Trump had illegally tried to obstruct the investigation into Russian interference.

“They didn’t feel capable of making the decision probably because they had dissent within their ranks,” Giuliani said during a radio interview, according to Politico’s Kyle Cheney. “This extra language not exonerating him… very, very unusual and very unethical.”

Despite Giuliani’s complaints about Mueller’s treatment of the obstruction claim, the former New York mayor described Barr’s summary of the Mueller report as the “biggest win” of his career.

However, Republican strategist Stuart Stevens, who is currently working for Trump primary challenger Bill Weld, says it would be a mistake to confuse Trump's bigoted impulses with a well thought out battle plan.

"There is always this need to attribute this master plan to Trump because otherwise, you have to come to terms with the fact that he’s a blithering idiot," Stevens said in an interview with the Huffington Post.

Here is why Nancy Pelosi allowed a House impeachment vote

Published

Admitting that he isn't privy to insider knowledge from the Democratic leadership, Bloomberg columnist Jonathan Bernstein suggested that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may be playing a much longer game on the possibility of impeachment hearings on Donald Trump than her detractors believe.

Wondering, "Is Nancy Pelosi closer to impeachment?' Bernstein writes, "Usually, when a regular bill or resolution has been introduced, it’s then referred to committee. If the majority party doesn’t want to consider the bill, it will die with no further action. Under House rules, however, any member can force an impeachment resolution onto the floor as pending business. That’s what [Rep. Al] Green (D-TX) did Wednesday."

Trump falsely claims he stopped his supporters from chanting ‘Send her back!’

Published

On Wednesday night, President Donald Trump held a rally in Greenville, North Carolina, where he singled out Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), accusing her and the other Democratic congresswomen known as "the Squad" of not loving America.

In response, the crowd began to shout "Send her back!"

Trump allowed the crowd to continue the chant for a full 12 seconds before continuing his speech.

The next day, amidst criticism that he was riling up his fans to dangerous levels, Trump claimed that he had indeed shut down the chant, in direct contradiction to the video. New York Times journalist Peter Baker reported Trump's claim on Twitter.
