Mueller’s Gift to Obama

Shouldn’t the special counsel investigate the crimes that drew Flynn into his probe?

Robert Mueller looks to be approaching his endgame, and the press is alive with speculation as to how bad the special counsel’s report will be for President Trump. It’s also worth noticing how good Mr. Mueller has been to another president, Barack Obama, and his team.
This benevolence was on display in the sentencing document the special counsel’s office filed on Tuesday for Mike Flynn. The former Trump national security adviser, we are told, has provided “substantial assistance,” sitting for 19 interviews that aided in “several ongoing investigations.” In light of this help, the Mueller team recommends leniency—perhaps even sparing him prison time.

Bush41 was right for his TIME. Voters blew it and shared too many votes to anger and Ross Perot so we did not get his full benefit because Clinton Took the prize and the legacy of a solid economy base built up by Reagan and Bush. All the errors since got us to this point. And in my opinion, as "un-presidential" as TRUMP is, he is the right man for THIS TIME. Warts and all we have had some pretty good Republican Presidents over the last 50 years. And every single one was vilified by the left and praised once out of office ... when it was advantageous to do so.



Yet - there are Conservatives as well who are not at all pleased with the direction taken by the Bush41 Administration.... For a less happy reflection. READ HERE

"You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end – which you can never afford to
Lose – with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever
they might be."
           - VAdm James Stockdale, USN (1923-2005)
