    Yes please answer these and HOPE AG Barr doesn't arrest you for lying to Congress!!

    The Hill ^

    Would you have charged Trump if it weren’t for the OLC opinion?

    Democrats want to know if Mueller would have charged Trump with obstruction of justice in the absence of an Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) opinion from the Justice Department that says a sitting president can’t be indicted.

    Why did your office write a letter to Barr objecting to his March 24 memo?

    Mueller wrote to Barr on May 27 objecting to the attorney general’s four-page memo from a few days earlier outlining the Russia report’s principal conclusions, a revelation that sparked a firestorm in Washington on the eve of Barr’s public testimony before the Senate.

    Did you blame the media on your call with Barr?

    Lawmakers are sure to inquire about Mueller’s interactions with Barr following the March 27 letter, when he asserted that the attorney general’s March 24 memo “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” of his work and conclusions.

    Did any Trump campaign contacts with Russia put national security at risk?

    House Intelligence Committee Democrats are particularly interested in the counterintelligence implications of Mueller’s report and whether any contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow posed national security risks, even if they didn’t amount to criminal conduct.

    Did your investigation exonerate Trump of ‘collusion’ and obstruction allegations?

    Trump has cheered the Mueller report as vindicating him of allegations of “collusion” and obstruction of justice.

    But Democrats and other critics of the president note that Mueller’s report explicitly states that there was no evaluation of alleged “collusion” — a term often used by the press, Trump administration officials and lawmakers to describe accusations of coordination or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.

    Should Congress initiate an impeachment inquiry?

    Some Democrats took Mueller’s statement on May 29 as a green light to start impeachment proceedings against Trump.

    In his terse nine-minute remarks, Mueller did not mention impeachment but said the Constitution “requires a process other than the criminal justice system to formally accuse a sitting president of wrongdoing” while explaining his decision not to reach a judgment on obstruction. He’s likely to be asked what he meant by that.

    At what point did you know the investigation was not going to establish conspiracy between the campaign and Russia?

    Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), a Trump ally and Judiciary Committee member, previewed this question in an appearance on Fox News.

    What role did the Steele dossier play in the investigation?

    Republicans have focused on the early stages of the Russia investigation before Mueller took it over in May 2017. Of particular interest to them is the FBI’s use of information from the controversial Steele dossier in an application to surveil onetime Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

    The dossier is fleetingly referenced in Mueller’s report in the context of Trump’s reactions to media reports about its allegations and his interactions with then-FBI Director James Comey.

    Why did you select people for your team who mostly donated to Democrats?

    Another point of contention for GOP lawmakers has been the makeup of Mueller’s team of prosecutors, many of whom are registered Democrats.

    Why didn’t you compel Trump to be interviewed?

    Some legal experts have criticized Mueller’s decision not to issue a subpoena to compel Trump to testify under oath — a move that undoubtedly would have provoked a prolonged court fight.

    I'd be more interested to know why Mueller didn't consider that the FBI lied to the FISA court, why the Steele Dossier wasn't soundly dismissed on that basis and why actions by the likes of Strzok and Page within the FBI to "get" Trump were not factored into the equation.

    Bush Jr was the one who eased FISA warrants and Strzok and Page were fired. Nothing there.

    George W. Bush nominated Rosemary Collyer to D.C. federal court, and Michael Mosman to the District of Oregon. Ann Conway was a George H.W. Bush pick to the Middle District of Florida. Ronald Reagan tapped Raymond J. Dearie to take a seat in the Eastern District of New York. FISA court judges are appointed by the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, and the conservative Roberts named all of them to those position. Roberts was nominated to the Supreme Court by President George W. Bush.
    Judges Who Approved Carter Page FISA Warrants Were All Nominated by GOP Presidents
    ---------------------------------------------
    If they were nominated by a GOP Potus and it goes against tramp, they are bad and bias.
    If they are republican and go against tramp they are shit and bias.

    One can't win, it they are republican or democrat if they go against tramp they are bias arseholes ready to be prisoned.

    Meuller, Comey, Stzrok, Page, McCabe, Brennen, Rosenstein, Weinstein, Ohr, Lynch, Holder, Clinton, Obama and many more have perpetrated the most corrupt conspiracy in our contries history. Watergate is small peanuts compared to the treasonous coup and manipulation of our government that this totally corrupt bunch has done. Viva Trump

    You don't get it. It's the corrupt establishment from both parties that are running this coup against Trump. They like it the way it was, rigged and easy to profit. Viva Trump, the peoples President.

    All this shows is the totally incestuous relationship between establishment swamper remocrats and depublicans, against anyone they deem to be beneath them.

    But then you're a pom-pom waver for your team, who's too blinded by partisanship for them to see this obvious dynamic.

    My god, keep your POTUS boner in your pants. I used to think Bush and Obama's fans were a little thick but you guys take the cake.
