Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
As the Justice Department now openly discusses when the Mueller investigation will end, the nation is anxiously awaiting its final report. Ultimately it is the attorney general, William (Bill) Barr, who will decide what will be released to the general public.
It may only days away from the end of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into President Trump and his connections to Russia. Stephanie Ruhle is joined by former Assistant Special Watergate Prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks and Daily Beast Reporter Betsy Woodruff to discuss what could happen when Attorney General Bill Barr receives Mueller’s report, in the video “Jill Wine-Banks: Bill Barr Isn’t Bound By Rules, He’s The Rule Maker, Velshi & Ruhle, MSNBC“, below:
Official Washington is on edge with the news that special counsel Robert Mueller could finish his report on the Russia investigation in the coming days. After nearly two years of investigation and numerous indictments and guilty pleas from former associates and campaign aides to President Donald Trump, the long-awaited report on Russian interference in the 2016 election could have huge ramifications for Trump and the country. VOA national correspondent Jim Malone has a preview from Washington, in the video “Washington on Edge as Mueller Report Looms“, below:
In a special report, MSNBC Chief Legal Correspondent, Ari Melber, breaks down a 2015 Mueller report that could reveal what might be expected from Mueller’s forthcoming report on alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. Melber walks through how Mueller’s most recent report, following an investigation into the NFL and Ray Rice, demonstrates his approach to fact-finding and indicates that Mueller could detail structural failure, even if it falls short of a crime, in the video “Here Is The Mueller Report: NFL Report Offers Russia Probe Clues, The Beat With Ari Melber, MSNBC“, below:
Just a quick review of the situation, based on a panel discussion of Washington Week from 2 months ago: federal court documents provide a glimpse into the progress, and scope of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe. Is the investigation winding down? Or up? Plus, staff turbulence shake up President Donald Trump’s circle. And, the nation remembers President George H.W. Bush, in the video “New clues in Robert Mueller’s Russia probe“, below:
- Michael Flynn, President Trump’s former national security adviser, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and cooperated early and fully with Mueller investigation, waiting to be sentenced in few months.
- Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former lawyer, pleaded guilty to lying to Congress. He also has issue in tax evasion. Prosecutor said Cohen deserves prison time, due to his late and reluctant cooperation.
- Paul Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman, pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges, violated his plea agreement, and has been in solitary confinement.
- President Trump himself directed the payments to two women during campaign, breaking campaign finance law.
- Russian attempts to infiltrate campaign, offering synergy.
- There is need to see President Trump’s tax returns.
Attorney General William Barr may announce as early as next week the end of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. The politically-charged probe into the Russian attack on the 2016 election has loomed over President Donald Trump for two years. The panelists discussed the potential impact of the report’s release, along with the investigations into President Donald Trump. The group also previewed the president’s upcoming trip to Vietnam to meet with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, in the video “The latest developments in the Mueller report“, below:
Intelligence chairman Adam Schiff told ABC’s “This Week” that his committee will be watching Attorney General William Barr very closely to see if he would “try to bury any part of this report”. Senator Schiff warns thtat there will be intense scrutiny and pressure on Barr to fully release the report.
In a special report, MSNBC Chief Legal Correspondent, Ari Melber, breaks down a central question in modern American politics: Can a sitting President be indicted? Melber examines how the constitution’s core remedy for a President who commits “high crimes or misdemeanours” is through Congress and the power of impeachment, but that this doesn’t legally mean a sitting President cannot be indicted. Melber also walks through how both the Special Counsel in the Watergate investigation and Ken Starr, in the investigation of Bill Clinton, have both argued that a President could, in fact, be indicted while in Office and that while DOJ guidelines recommend against it, if Mueller thought there was a public interest requirement to indict Trump, he could ask Attorney General Bill Barr for an exception, in the video “Why Robert Mueller Could Ask AG Barr To Indict Trump In Office, The Beat With Ari Melber, MSNBC“, below:
