    The truth is gonna hit some folks like tons of bricks.
    They will be so blindsided they won't know what hit them.

    When special counsel Robert Mueller formally closed the Russia investigation on May 29th, he opened the door to wide-ranging speculation as to the intent behind his statement. In the eyes of Former Texas Prosecutor Sidney Powell, Mueller’s words stood the rule of law and the presumption of innocence on their heads.

    This is American Thought Leaders, and I’m Jan Jekielek. Today we sit down with Sidney Powell, who is the author of LICENSED TO LIE: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice. She was lead counsel in more than 500 appeals in the Fifth Circuit, and she’s is ranked by her Texas peers as a "Super Lawyer." We discuss the implications of Special Counsel Mueller’s May 29 press conference, the recent DOJ decision to not prosecute a serial leaker, corruption in the DOJ in general, and what can be done to correct it.

    Our entire system of justice is built upon one bedrock principle...that we are all considered innocent until PROVEN guilty! That goes for a penniless homeless person. That goes for the President of the United States! Robert Mueller and anyone else on his "team" that wrote those passages about them not finding enough evidence to "exonerate" Trump should be ashamed of themselves!

    If you can't understand that the "rule of law" begins and ends with the presumption of innocence...then you have no business being a lawyer!

    Everyone knows that Robert Mueller being a Republican who hates Trump with a passion. But he couldn't get Trump on any crime.

    "And as set forth in the report after the investigation, if we had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so."

    Meaning, Robert Mueller knew all along that the President was innocent. He couldn't prove without a reasonable doubt. If they had known all along that Trump had "colluded with Russia", it would have been said.



    Of course, the Democrats and those on the left don't want that as an answer. They see it as that Trump "obstructed justice". And therefore, he is guilty without a reasonable doubt.

    Mueller, however, refrained from recommending prosecution, saying that there were “difficult [legal] issues that would need to be resolved,” in order to reach a conclusion that the crime of obstruction of justice was committed by Trump.

    Factoring into his decision not to weigh in on prosecution, Mueller wrote, was an opinion issued by the Office of Legal Counsel finding that “the indictment or criminal prosecution of a sitting President would impermissibly undermine the capacity of the executive branch to perform its constitutionally assigned functions” in violation of “the constitutional separation of powers.”

    “Because we determined not to make a traditional prosecutorial judgment, we did not draw ultimate conclusions about the President’s conduct,” Mueller wrote.

    Mueller emphasized, however, that his analysis of the evidence did not clear the president of obstruction. Said Mueller: “f we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, we are unable to reach that judgment.”

    Nor does the fact that many of the president’s acts occurred in public view — “including discouragement of cooperation with the government and suggestions of possible future pardons” — necessarily clear him, the report states.
