Alan Dershowitz Discusses the Conniving Political Duplicity of Team Mueller…

Alan Dershowitz is exactly correct on the point; but he’s incorrect on the Mueller team’s motive.

Team Mueller didn’t punt the Obstruction issue to the Attorney General because Mueller’s a coward…. Team Mueller punted the Obstruction issue because they specifically wanted to create room for The House to work an impeachment angle.  It was a political decision.

  2. Mueller and Hillary’s imbeded assault lawyers knew they didn’t have a collusion or Russian conspiracy case well over a year ago, so they started charging people with any ridiculous thing they could think of and began using gestapo tactics in an attempt to goad the president into firing the SC so they could manufacture a Nixonian “Saturday Night Massacre” fantasy scenario and potential obstruction charge. . . , but Trump did not take the bait.

    As W.C Fields would say:
    “You can’t cheat an honest man”

    Congratulations President Trump.

      Exactly right!

      This was all designed to lay a trap… as far back as during the election when they were trying to goad Trump into colluding with Russians.

      I have no doubt the Russians did nothing. And that every single claim of election interference was on the part of the Deep State, who then tried to frame the fingerprints of it on to Trump and Russia.

    • Actually I think Barr did make the call–as he says, along with Rod Rosenstein, to not charge after SC Mueller left the question open.
      His logic about whether to charge for Obstruction of Justice is impeccable–no crime, most purported “actions” in public (probably tweets), and overall any action does not meet the guidelines used for such charges.

      The fact that the Left would ignore that is not surprising–remember that rules are for “the little people”—or anyone not in their sphere.

      And again, Barr was absolutely correct to retain Rosenstein so that he can be on the hook for this decision, as well as helping to find the 6(e) and other materials from Mueller’s report that cannot be made public.

      DeGenova told us that Barr was a good guy and I”m seeing the evidence to back-up DeGenova’s claim.

            “Pelosi and Schumer say Barr’s letter ‘raises as many questions as it answers’. According to Barr’s letter, Mueller’s report does not exonerate President Trump “on a charge as serious as obstruction of justice,” and this “demonstrates how urgent it is that the full report and underlying documentation be made public without any further delay,” the Democratic leaders said. “Given Mr. Barr’s public record of bias against the special counsel’s inquiry, he is not a neutral observer and is not in a position to make objective determinations about the report.”

      Sorry, there was no waffle on obstruction. Mueller did what the law requires. He did not find any evidence of a crime. Obstruction cannot exist without an underlying crime. His role is NOT to judge, but to report. So what he did was set it up on a silver platter for Barr to reach the only conclusion he can reach — there was no obstruction, either.

        He deferred the decision in re obstruction to Attorney General Barr. There was no good faith basis to go into the dissembling about “does not exonerate” in doing so. It’s for Barr to decide. Mueller admits and asks for that to happen. Then he drops a big stinking turd about exoneration in the punch bowl.

        It seems malicious, petty and it perhaps rises to the level of professional malpractice. It’s difficult to explain as a good faith rhetorical convention.

      • B Woodward says:

        Mueller left some “waffle” regarding the obstruction issue in order to give the Democrats an opening for an impeachment charge. And neither Rosenstein nor Mueller did what federal law requires. If they both did what the law requires there never would have been an illegal special counsel conducting an illegal investigation of the President. Rosenstein’s appointment of the Mueller was illegal. Federal law 28 CFR 600.1, states that “The Attorney General … will appoint a Special Counsel when he or she determines that criminal investigation of a person or matter is warranted…” Rosenstein did not identify a crime to be investigated. And the DOJ regulation does not authorize a special counsel to be appointed for a counter-intelligence investigation. Mueller was also disqualified from being the special counsel because of his conflicts of interest (28 CFR 600.7). Mueller is best friends with James Comey who was a key player in the FBI’s illegal spying on Trump. That alone legally disqualifies Mueller.

    Thinking Outside The Box… Mueller’s “Obstruction-No-Obstruction” is actually not such a bad thing.

    Consider: he just unwittingly took a 90-Ton Excavator to that particular Rabbit Hole, and the Dems appear to be more than willing to jump (fall, really) right down to the bottom of it. So predictable. I call it: Fuel For The Dumpster Fire. Entirely by accident, of course.

    How many weeks of “Obstruction Delusion” are we looking at now? Months? It’ll be the hot topic. And there will be testimony. And media coverage. And interviews. And great gnashing of teeth. And more testimony. And more interviews. And more media coverage. And Impeachment Fervor will grow to a crescendo. It will be all-consuming. And the 2020 Candidates will have to talk about it. And talk about it. And talk about it. And talk about it. And at some point if they refuse to talk about it they will be asked: “Why do you refuse to talk about it?” And Pelosi will lose control over the “2020 Message”. They already don’t have a “2020 Message”, but by the end of this thing they will be in negative territory. Negative message. Which, bizarrely, is somehow better than no message whatsoever, but I digress…

      No way I think Mueller is a white hat. The evidence against that idea is too long to list.

      My theory is that the offense against Mueller (past cases like Richard Jewell, etc.) combined with the revelations about Spygate, the mysterious beginnings of the entire “collusion” affair, the various testimonies being released (ohr, sztrok, page et.al.), have made it seem highly probable that the coup players are going to be revealed and charged.
      Mueller was almost certainly going to be implicated with them. This (almost) total exoneration of Trump was his only way out.

      Had Nunes and company not persevered in uncovering this deep state abomination – had the players maintained the feeling they were getting away with it – Mueller’s report, in my opinion, would have been damning.

      I see Mueller’s report as pure self-preservation. His deniability for being a part of the the Treasonous Deep State.

    Mueller couldn’t find anything against Trump but he had to get in one last dig before he was done with his wording.

    “…while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”

    Well, Mueller, like Comey before him, has no authority to convict or exonerate anyone. His job was to investigate the issues involved and present the facts to the Attorney General.

    One fact that was presented was that no American was involved with Russian collusion or Russian hacking. Consequently there was no crime to prosecute against any Americans (the ones indicted have been because of process or other unrelated crimes).

    Logically, it seems to me that if no American including Trump is guilty of collusion then Trump himself can’t be guilty of obstruction. Why? Because, if there was no collusion, what would be Trump’s motive to obstruct justice? On the contrary, he would want quick justice to prove the innocence the he knew all along.

    This is what burns me up about Dershowitz. He constantly throws out this ostensibly even handed approach crap. That’s how he has repeatedly positioned the obvious Hilary criminal behavior and contrasted it to Trump, saying we shouldn’t go after political opponents. BUT THERE WAS NO CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR BY TRUMP- this is how he lightens the load team Hilary is carrying by putting some of Trump side – and cleans it up and appears even handed. Makes it sound like going after Hilary for real charges is the same as going after Trump for bogus charges.

    So tonight he dares to contrast the outlining of wrongdoing by Comey re Hilary with outlining of “obstruction” by Trump by Mueller???? And then says its the same thing and thereby all a wash. There was no effing obstruction!!!! It’s not the same effing thing.

    Mueller is a total weasel and this phrase “cannot exonerate” on obstruction was put there to be used exactly as it is being used by every MSM. It is so despicable and disgusting.
