Yes, Dotard tRump And Vladimir Putin Colluded!

The iconic New York Times writer William Safire referred to [Bill Barr] not as "Attorney General" but, instead, as "Coverup-General", noting that in another scandal—having to do with Bush selling weapons of mass destruction to Saddam Hussein—Barr was already trying to cover up for both Bush, himself, and his friends ~ Quote excerpted from Thom Hartmann's 1/17/2019 article "William Barr's shady track record of covering up the crimes of a Republican president".

The following is an excerpt from the Monday (3/25/2019) airing of The Stephanie Miller Show in which host Stephanie Miller and Malcolm Nance (via phone) discuss the summary of Special Council Robert Mueller's report on the Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections provided by AG William Barr.

Stephanie Miller: ...so you tweeted this morning, "maybe I was wrong when I said "There is no way Barr will commit he greatest scandal in history to cover-up the greatest scandal in history". It looks like it just happened". Ah, nothing to see here, just a regular day in Washington. It is hard to get your head around him injecting himself like this. With his ridiculous 4 page book report.

Malcolm Nance: Now that I realize that he was the Attorney General during the Iran-Contra scandal, and he apparently did the exact same thing for Ronald Reagan... Now it doesn't surprise me anymore. But the thing that surprised me the most... is the question of conspiracy or collusion. I've said this about 20 times since yesterday - I've seen this with my own eyes.

Donald Trump stood on a stage and said "Russia, if you're listening, please release Hillary Clinton's emails". He called on a foreign power to work with [his campaign]. His son had a meeting where he agreed saying "I love it", and sat down with agents of the Russian government. That happened. Then the White House, one year later, formulated a cover-up letter, saying that this did not happen [the meeting was about Russian adoptions, not collusion]. There were over 100 contacts with 19 of his staff with Russian agents.

Someone who was on a radio program that I appeared on earlier this morning said, "...I think that the Mueller report will show that they didn't meet the complete perfect legal definition of conspiracy beyond a shadow of a doubt. Not even a reasonable doubt. But I believe they were collusion-curious". Well, they were more than collusion-curious.

The only thing that was missing was where this investigation stopped. ...Roger Stone's [indictment] was the last one and the next one would logically be WikiLeaks and Julian Assange - the bridge to the Trump team. This investigation abruptly ended. So, I'm starting to believe that Bill Barr was brought in to put the knife into the investigation.

Stephanie Miller: Thank you! How do we know Bill Barr didn't stop this?

Malcolm Nance: [the end of the investigation could have come about if] ...Robert Mueller said, "we won't be able to get these guys beyond a reasonable doubt". In the US intelligence community, you are taken away, polygraphed, and you are brought up to consider if you should have criminal charges filed against you by the FBI - if you even cross one of the lines that these people crossed by the hundreds. So, explain to me, what was the legal standard for conspiracy. Because all the conspiracy I've seen with my own eyes - anybody else in the US government would be considered an agent of a foreign power at that point.

Stephanie Miller: Well, you tweeted, "this is absolutely impossible. Technically they ignored every contact between the campaign [and Russia] and couched conspiracy as only tacit or expressed agreement. In other words, no oral or signed FSB contract, no crime". That's a ridiculous standard.

Malcolm Nance: It's an impossible standard. Look, and I tweeted a little later, "here's trump's signed contract" - and I put up the BuzzFeed photograph of the signed letter of intent for Trump Tower Moscow. That is your contract. Trump, from 2012 on, talked about Trump Tower Moscow with his Russian contact. Especially at Miss Universe. From 1987 on he has been trying to build Trump Tower [Moscow]. This is the only thing that explains his slavish devotion to Vladimir Putin.

...I've seen all the evidence over the last two years. Both from the Russia side - and I'm glad this report validates everything I've ever said about the Russian intelligence operation. That the United States was not openingly attacked. But you cannot tell me, that if this was the government of Iran and the Obama administration, and there were 100 secret meetings with them - trying to get them nuclear power plants [as Trump did re Saudi Arabia], that we would not be having treason trials right now. So, I'm sorry, that standard is going to have to apply to each side.

Stephanie Miller: Um, Malcolm, ...Joy Reid said to you yesterday, "sounds like the seeds of a cover-up" and you said, "Bill Barr is one guy. There are secretaries that have to handle these documents, the secretaries and FBI agents who did the work themselves". I sure hope there is some patriot out there [will leak the report if Barr suppresses it].

Malcolm Nance: This morning Donald Trump made it clear that he is now going to use the Justice Department and the Senate to start investigating everyone. ...they're talking about going after Hillary Clinton. Everyone who was in the FBI - Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, all the judges on the FISA court, and President Barack Obama. John Brennan. They're talking about literally attacking anyone who looked into Trump. This is the mafia tactic that they're going to use. They have now weaponized this. He is planning not to just get away with it, but to go to war with everyone who is opposed to him. The Democrats.

*skip*

Stephanie Miller: OK... I want to get your take on something [from last week] [reading] ...Adam Schiff maintained that the counterintelligence investigation was far more urgent to national security concerns than the investigation into Trump's potential criminality. What Americans should be concerned about is whether the president's Russia policy is not dictated by our national interests, but is dictated by his desire to make 100s of millions of dollars in Moscow. He also noted the limits of indictments in revealing whether someone is compromised by a foreign power. In fact, most counterintelligence probes don't end with indictments because criminality is difficult to prove, and the information involved is often too sensitive to make public".

..."Schiff is concerned that the question of foreign influence on Trump through his finances may not have been fully explored by Mueller, if at all. From what we can see, publically or otherwise, it is very much an open question. ...he added, "the red line Trump drew at Mueller investigating his personal finances is not a line that can be observed and still protect the country".

Malcolm Nance: They've got to go through his finances. You don't know whether there actually has been a payoff. We don't know whether the Trump Tower meeting involved some exchange of cash. We do know that he did offer a bribe to Vladimir Putin of a 50 million dollar penthouse. ...Sara Sanders right now is saying that Robert Mueller has fully exonerated him. No he hasn't at all.

Stephanie Miller: ...[reading a tweet] because so many Americans have so many questions and we are entitled to answers - why did Paul manafort share highly confidential polling data with Russian intelligence? ...which states and Americans were targeted with that data...?

Malcolm Nance: What I want to know is why all these people in jail or will be going to jail - like Mike Flynn, lying about his Russian contacts? Papadopoulos, lying about his Russian contacts. Maria Butina is going to prison if she isn't exchanged in a spy swap. ...this is impossible [that there was not collusion]. I want to see all the FBI 302s, I want to see the intercepts. You're telling me that the Trump campaign contacts were all just coincidence? ...you know what I say about coincidence - it takes a lot of planning.

  2. Today I come to you with so much excitement!
    My Ex and I broke up 1 year and 2 months ago and i was six months pregnant. We both love each other and it was a shock to me and it really broke my heart. I tried to call him and both of his lines were disconnected. I tried to reach him on social networks but he deleted me off of them. I tried to reach his parents and they told me that their son said that he does not love me and does not want to see me and they do not know what is wrong. I cried and cried everyday because I loved him very much. Until I gave birth and the baby was one year old, I could not get my love back. Again, I was confused. I do not know what to do and I also lost my job and I have no money to take care of the baby. I was miserable in life so I cried to my sister and told her my problem and said that she knew of one powerful spell caster that helped her when she could not get pregnant. I contacted him by email and he said he will help me and told me that a woman cast a spell upon my man and said he will help me break the spell so my man will come back to me and be mine forever. It was a great surprise to me that everything that he said came to pass. My man came back to me immediately, saying that I should forgive him. I am sending a very big thank you to this powerful and real spell caster. I pray for him to live long and do more of his wonderful work. If you have any kind of problem disturbing you in life, you have to contact this powerful spell caster! He can help you. He will not disappoint you, I give you 100% guarantee that he will help you,
    Here’s his contact: Email him at: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com

    2. I don't know about other blogs, but posting spam here is a complete waste. Because hardly anyone will ever see what she/he cut and pasted. And, of the very few people who read this blog, nobody will ever contact her/him at the provided email. I'd bet a lot of money on it.

    3. Good point. But I was jokingly referring to Nancy May being paid by her rightwing "handlers6".

  3. This post is a rebuttal to the PROGRESSIVE WITCH who is constantly sucking up to the Moocher as if she is some wonderful, beautiful, intelligent, and gracious First lady. . She is far from it, in fact she’s neither wonderful, beautiful, or gracious.
    Yes, she is on the cover of every magazine this year but so was Vladimir Putin, and so was Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and Tokyo Rose, so, so what!
    That's right I said it!
    Will somebody please tell her that she should stop telling me, and my Kids what to eat, drink, drive, read, watch, and what light bulb to use. I don’t remember her winning any election that gives her the right to tell me anything.

    Obama was leading our country into disaster, with dept, and with dishonor He was been caught in scandal and scandal, and now that he’s out of office he still is! . He ruined any chance of a future this country had. He was recording or phone data yeah even yours. Yet the PROGRESSIVE WITCH caled the First Lady the most wonderful things that was imaginable ? . Come on wake up she was, and is Not!

  4. Dear Liberals, Socialists and Assorted Idiots, especially Ms Shaw!
    If Mueller had any proof he would have said so in NO uncertain terms! We'd all have been reading it in his report, and in every newspaper in the land!.

    The lefty loons are beaten but they won't let this dead horse die.
    I hope they spend all of 2019 with investigations and hearings. They will pave the way for a Trump win in 2020

    We tried to tell you this but you wouldn’t listen, YOU told US we were crazy.
    YOU voted for what you DIDN’T get…TWICE.
    And although your won’t admit it, YOU know it.
    For the previous years, the 8 years that the Emperor was in office, he made it very clear that he wanted to stick it to the “rich” and hike THEIR taxes. That’s what Socialist’s like Obama do.
    WE, as conservatives, TRIED to tell you that HE was lying all along..
    We tried and we tried and every time we told you he was going to hike YOUR taxes, even though YOU are part of the MIDDLE CLASS that the Emperor said MUST NOT be harmed by higher taxes…
    It’s really amazing how many times these Progressive- Liberals-Socialists have shifted narratives and moved goalpost, all because they refuse to accept they lost an election. It’s Pathetic!
    We told you that President Trump was the better choice, but you wouldn’t listen.
    YOU told us that WE had NO IDEA what we were talking about.
    YOU called US crazy. You called US names.
    YOU said WE were lying.
    Well, now that you’ve seen your paychecks, what do you think?
    77% of ALL Americans, regardless of their class, lower, middle or upper, have had their taxes jacked up.
    YOU are among them.
    WE were telling YOU the TRUTH.

    Remember Obamacare?Well, THAT’S ONLY just PART of your current tax hike, there much more to come..
    We told you so.
    died LAST year because, Capital Gains taxes are also UP, Up, UP!!!
    We told you so. Take another look at your paycheck liberals, socialists and assorted idiots Ms. Shaw included, Oh, let me revise that and say ESPECIALLY MS. SHAW! and while you do, realize the guy responsible for your shrinking bottom line just came back from a 6 MILLION DOLLAR Hawaiian Vacation WITH HIS GRUBBING WOOKIE AND HUNDREDS OF OTHERS... and YOU paid for it! .

    He left for vacation without having a deal to hike YOUR taxes yet, had to fly home to finish YOUR tax hike, flew BACK to Hawaii to play more golf and then, flew home again…ALL ON YOUR DIME WHILE YOU WAITED FOR YOUR FIRST…SMALLER…PAYCHECKS , AND THEN HIGHER TAXES!
    We told you too, that were the Emperor allowed to jack up taxes on the “rich” he wouldn’t be done with it there. We TOLD you he would want MORE.

    We were correct about that too.
    Over the weekend, Pelosi made it clear that YOUR Socialist party is not done yet.

    The Mueller investigation was a "Russian Collusion" investigation. Mueller's report clearly said that neither Trump, nor any of his administration, knowingly had any interactions with Russian operatives. Trump's son, was told by a Russian representative that claimed to have some dirt on Clinton, but it was found to just be a ploy regarding the adoption of Russian babies, which didn't involve Trump himself. Since this was an investigation into Russian Collusion and Trump was found by Mueller, to have committed NO deliberate collusion with Russians, there would be NO need for "obstruction."
    Despite the left's cries of a Constitutional crisis in the making, the only ones that would be responsible for it, would be the left. The left has become Leninist and have made it clear they would change the Constitution. Once the left is in power, it would be goodbye individual liberty and freedoms.
    Freedom of Speech? Gone. 2nd Amendment? Gone. Innocent until proven guilty? Gone and replaced with guilty until you can prove your innocence.
    The Electoral College? Who Knows?

  5. I couldn't agree more. This Liberal/Progressive blogger has been saying outrageous things since day one!
    She is a hateful, insulting, obnoxious, name-calling, bigoted, lair and shouldn’t even be given the time and space that she is given here. Her blog is full of the most arsine CRAP I have ever read.

    I’m not going to bore you with one of my rants now, we have enough here already.
    After all, what can I say that hasn't already been said above already.
    This is what these Progressives are doing to America!

    I personally do not have any problem calling a lying liberal LAIRS or is that an Oxymoron!
    When you have Old Hags like Shaw making up stories just to make Republicans look bad, this is a prime example of why we need more mental health care in this country. But Obamacare won’t pay for it.

    I have to wonder if she was complaining when George Bush was compared to Hitler and hung in effigy, and set on fire? And portraying George Bush as a dumb Chimp!
    Or when the Libs were drawing cartoons of Condi Rice with big Lips or their cartoons that made her look like Aunt Jemima ! Or calling her her a "house n******"? Was she also offended by those, or is it only offensive when a Republican does it?
    And how about when Harry Belefonte calling George Bush the “greatest terrorist in the world.” The liberals in America are constantly accusing Republicans of being racist simply because they do not agree with the liberals policies.. Well she is doing exactly the same sort of things now to President Trump, only because he dared to mop up the floor with Hillary during the 2016 election.

    Question: "Why the hatred for Shaw Kenawe?" Answer: "Why not? The answer is in their own party platform handbook." You’ll find it right there between “The vast Right wing conspiracy” and “Why it’s Donald Trump’s fault”
