    They would just spam bullshit for 100 posts, takes them 5 minutes longer and back they are. In the meantime, those other forums are full of spam shit and their mods are not used to dealing with outright bullshit like that. I mean, seriously, as far as modding goes, I imagine GenOT and /politics are probably the worst biohazard on this forum. The amount of finely tuned "near-infractions" that regular posters like me are doing constantly probably gives them headaches on a good day. Like what I'm doing right now, by all rights I should be infracted for moderation discussion, but probably won't as long as I shut up about it within about 1-2 posts... :P

    Any useful discussion on this topic was shut down when the report came out. This chat thread is not constructive at all for the nothingburger it is.

    Trump is a racist.

    He has said things about brown and black people that might get us banned for even quoting. He describes them using the same language that white nationalists use, like "invasion." His administration is splitting up immigrant families and has banned people from random Muslim countries from entering. His dad marched with the KKK, and Donald himself made a 1page ad calling for the execution of 5 black accused rapists, and never apologized when they

    There is interesting discussion to be had when the details of the report are public, but probably not before. The legal battle to have it released is going to be pretty boring though.

    After reading a bit more on the subject... I don't think Mueller intended Barr to make any determinations on Obstruction as it's congress's job to make that determination.

    Notice how there are no quotes in Barr's memo that are complete sentences. We're missing a ton of context.

    Then there's the fact there are numerous other investigations into the president and the job he's done in office. The fact Trump is going to use this to go after his enemies shows his character, as if we need another example to prove he's a horrendous individual.

    He got nothing. Look elsewhere, deal with it politically.
    Trump's appointed AG Barr, who helped Republican cover ups before, refuses to release the report, not Mueller.

    Also worth noting Barr is refusing to release to the public or Congress Trump's written answer to Muller's questions.

    The DoJ makes prosecutions, not Mueller. It's the job of Barr and Rosenstein to find any cases for prosecution and present them to the house. Rosenstein, who by the way detests trump and plotted for his impeachment. If Rosenstein can't find a prosecutory case in the report then maybe just maybe the game is up and it's time to let your fuckwitted conspiracy theory go.

    I'm not even American and it seems like 90% of the yanks posting here have even less understanding of their political system than AOC.

    If that's how you feel, don't vote for him. As for me i'll continue voting libertarian for federal elections. AOC's tweet is a hate filled ball of vile meant to catch up everyone not with her cause. I see it for what it is and gave it what it justly deserved.

    Barr never believed the President could obstruct justice. He laid it out in a memo last year.

    The fact the letter has language such as this - “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him." - means that there's something there and we need to see the full report.

    Rosenstein is subordinate to Barr, and so the four page summary is of Barr's judgement, not Rosenstein's. Either way the US is in a critical test for legitimacy right now. A political appointee is now denying the public release of the report.

    Liar.

    The report is not out.

    All we have is Trump's handpicked AG's own hot take.

    How about we wait for the report and see if Mueller has uncovered a really good explanation for why Trump tried to stop any investigation into how he and his toadies lied about their dealings with Russia while Trump was asking for and received Russian help getting elected?
