    The angle of attack is whether his tweets threatens, awarded or provided pardons to individuals. That can be seen as witness tampering. Hypothetically "fall guy(s)"

    No it's still part of the collusion and election meddling as per witness tampering. Mueller is looking to see if the tweet influenced anyone.

    Hypothetically Trump tweets a promise pardon for X. X rolls over to Mueller but does not provide anything for Mueller regarding Trump. X is pardoned after the case is over. Same idea if he threatened Y or made remarks about Z. Trumps complaining about Session can be seen a number of ways not just regular complaining.

    Seriously? I guess at some point the Tweets will be prosecuted and the Tweets will be sent to prison.

    Sounds like a lot, until you realize the USA is spending $600 billion or nearly ten times that.

    Which explains why Putin opts for the higher "bang for the buck" cyber attack method. Given the number of low information voters and freedom to speech laws, it's a no-brainer strategy.

    Why bother with military options when, for a few million bucks you can get the USA electoral college to appoint a weak, divisive and incompetent president to do most of the work for you?

    I guess you'd have to believe that people change their views in response to constructive arguments or memes. I don't, because my experience is simply that all it does is reinforce their silliness via the backfire effect. :D

    No Mueller said its ab investigation on weather he committed obstruction of justice not the other one. In fact they said Mueller said that are you saying Mueller lied? Hes investigating Trump for obstruction of justice because he fired Comey.

    As a matter of fact the Russian collusion probe is already over and they Mueller said in his wrap up of the Russian Investigation that there are no Americans listed and Trump is not a target of that and there aren't any other Americans listed guilty in the Russian probe. His written letter wast that there would be no other Americans in his WRITTEN report no Americans none.

    Are you saying Mueller's been lieing this whole time? Maybe we should investigate Mueller. You just wish it was a aprt of the old investigation, he specifically said on the news that it is a part of an investigation on Trump for Obstruction of justice obstruction not collusian with Russia obstrction of justice please get your facts straight you are living in a fantasy world.

    There is no evidence of illegal immigrants voting in the 2016 election.

    So, this will get him impeached you think?

    Is it worse than him grabbing female genitalia (in the eyes of the average beholder)?

    It’s simple, don’t obstruct an investigation especially for a crime you didn’t commit. Anyone can obstruct just by withholding evidence, they don’t have to be guilty of anything else.

    No name designated at this time.
    Just two questions?
    1. Was Comey directly involved in the investigation?
    2. Why by firing Comey would it directly affect any investigation.

    1. The Russian investigation was started under FBI director Comey
    2. Trump fired Comey who was investigating his campaign.

    Sounds like you should ask Dolt45 why he fired Comey if he didn't affect the investigation.

    Correct, the FBI investigation is over the Trump campaign colluding with Russia. Where there have been plenty of campaign members lying to the feds.
    Don't spin this investigation to be about Trump. It's always been about the campaign.

    I guess you should have notified Dolt45 that Comey wasn't investigating him. Seems kinda pointless to fire the head of the investigation right?
