    Add that to the list of wishful things democrats have been swashing around their pea brains for more than a year. In fact its quite the opposite. They have already started the process in bringing down Hillary/McGabe/Comey/Lynch and whomever was trying to destroy our democratic process under the US constitution.

    When does the Leftist wishful thinking stop preventing reasoned analysis? This whole thing is absurd.

    Mueller CANNOT rationally conclude that the firing of J Comey was an attempt to "obstruct" justice. Can not. Why? Because there were at least three or four different reasons justifying Comey's firing, and Mueller does not have the supernatural power to ascertain that any one of them was paramount.

    Most rational observers believe that the main reason was the combination of Comey's feckless handling of HRC's crimes, while at the same time keeping the preposterous "Russia Collusion" meme alive.

    For most of these discussions over the past year or so, one must also keep in mind that the President cannot "obstruct justice" with respect to a case in which he has the absolute power to grant a pardon. For example, if he told Mueller to "back off" with respect to Manafort's Ukraine activities. So what? He could simply pardon Manafort and put the whole matter to bed. It cannot be obstruction where he has the power to pardon.

    What Trump cult member FAIL to recognize is that most of us on the left do NOT like Comey all that much.....(including the fact that he....Comey....failed to mention that Trump was ALSO under FBI investigation prior to the 2016 elections.)

    That stated, the obstruction case boils down to the entire Trump cabal trying to get Flynn off the hook and not about Comey's firing........

    Comey's firing may have prompted the need for a special counsel (Mueller) but the obstruction case goes way beyond the firing...

    The steps that trump has been taking to block Mueller are textbook obstruction of justice through abuse if power.

    I don't know how Mueller can conclude anything else. Nixon didn't even do many of the things trump has done.
