So Mick Mulvaney is holding the line on "the President is above the law" and "the President should not be investigated."

Interestingly, he tried an 'excluded middle' argument on Chris Wallace, who was having none of it:

Quote:
Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney on Sunday suggested that Donald Trump could not work with Democrats on legislation if they "punch him in the face" with investigations.

During an interview on Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace [asked about the oversight role of Congress].

..."What he's saying is, 'Look, you have a choice, we can either work together on legislation or we can spend all our time doing these investigations but you can't do both,'" the acting Chief of Staff said.

"Wait," Wallace interrupted. "You can do both. And presidents have done both plenty of times."

"Right, but it's not reasonable to expect the president to work with you on Monday on a big infrastructure bill and then on Tuesday have you punch him in the face over 15 different investigations," Mulvaney replied.
https://crooksandliars.com/2019/02/m...fuse-pass-laws

As was pointed out in the comments, Democrats have been expected to do their jobs while being investigated. If Trump isn't up to it, maybe he should resign, eh?

Ted Lieu literally entered the text of the Constitution into the record after he asked Matthew Whitaker where in the Constitution it says that the President can't be indicted while in office, and Whitaker refused to say it was Constitutional.

I like Ted Lieu and despise Hot Tub Whitaker, but that line of questioning was much more boring, droning and pointless than suggested here. Whitaker did say it wasn't in the Constitution, if you watch the video. He was just getting irritated; Lieu was going through a list of people saying "and does the Constitution say this (type of person) can't be indicted?" and Whitaker was trying to move on.

i kind of agree....but Whitaker even tried to blow the whistle when a congressman's 5 minutes expired, and the chairman wasn't having it. The witness doesn't get to decide when it's "time to move on".

Too bad; maybe he should work for a different boss. It is true, an unindictable President is not in the Constitution, just a tradition, but then so were approving or disapproving his appointments in a timely manner rather than letting them sit until his successor could make them instead.

Funny how the desire to keep traditions is resurgent among the Republicans now, isn't it?

As a textual-originalist, I would note that Congress is specifically given a get-of-jail-free card, so if the Founders (bow your heads) wanted the Executive to have that privilege, I think they would have mentioned it.

not really a textual-originalist

Most especially relevant is that the incident was in DC, meaning that it was under federal, not state, authority that he was arrested. I'm on record as saying that I don't think that the President can be federally indicted against his will, but this does seem to be precedent.

On the other hand, Grant's not showing up for the court date might be taken to mean that he did consent to the action, so the precedent might not be applicable.

And apropos of nothing, I've got a heck of a lot of respect for Officer West. Duty is duty, indeed.

I'm hearing noise like Mueller's final report may not be revealed to the public. Like all of this was for nothing. Like Trump may get away with everything...

If so, we need to find a new Fort Sumter.

The Much-Heralded End of the Mueller Investigation
No one knows when it will actually “wrap up”—or what it will mean when it does.
Quote:
Everyone is saying it: The Mueller investigation is winding down. The acting attorney general declared the investigation “close to completion” during a press conference. His wife, Marci Whitaker, has also insisted that the special counsel’s investigation is “wrapping up.” President Donald Trump’s nominee for attorney general, William Barr, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee that, given his public actions, Mueller is “well along” in his investigation.

The press is buying it. NBC says we could be looking at “mid-February” for a delivery of the so-called Mueller report; that would be, well, now. Yahoo! News reported that the probe could be “coming to its climax potentially within a few weeks”—a few weeks ago.

There have also been reports that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has been overseeing the investigation, will likely step down soon, but only after the completion of the Mueller probe.

Other sheep entrails and tea leaves are signaling the end as well.
....
I believe the truth lies in the subhead, i.e., NO ONE KNOWS... That means that Whitaker doesn't know and his wife doesn't know. Barr doesn't know. NBC News doesn't know. Yahoo! News doesn't know. The sheep entrails and tea leaves don't know.

Mueller and his team don't leak. So anyone who says s/he knows doesn't.

We must keep our wits about us, difficult as that may be. And, God help us, it is very difficult.

Is there any conceivable theory of the case that does not involve Manafort covering up something very, very bad? I mean, he took a huge gamble here (and lost). I can’t imagine he did that lightly and for no reason.

I think there's a simpler explanation.

The people in Trumpworld don't get the meaning of "truth" and "lying."

I've concluded that they really don't understand. You say what helps you in the moment, and it must therefore be true.

<speculation>

He doesn't want to 'fess up to the extent of his contacts with Kilimnik during the time he was a guy who hung around and occasionally got covfefe CFSG's campaign manager. Doing so would draw a great big double-ended arrow between the campaign and the Kremlin, and would also call his (Manafort's) loyalty into question. This would jeopardize his chances of a pardon, which is looking increasingly like his only chance to avoid dying in the slammer.

(Mueller almost certainly knows anything Manafort could tell him already, but the optics are the point.)

</speculation>

Why not?

This is a man who has never truly been held to account for any of the shady as fuck things he's ever done in his life. His experience and the experience of his equally reptilian peers has been, at worst, a mild scolding for the worst offenses.

It is not surprising if he simply assumed this time was no different. His behavior since his incarceration, including his ridiculous, privileged requests for the terms of his incarceration, have displayed this amply. If it has always worked for him and for all the asshats he associates with, why wouldn't he believe he could just spout transparent lies this time as well?

Yes, this. Sometimes there isn’t much disagreement as to the factual account of what happened, it’s just that team Trump and the law have different ideas of what is right and what is wrong.
Like that treasonous Trump Tower meeting, which they brush off as “Anyone would’ve taken that meeting”.

Which was a big deal and I don’t understand why they haven’t nailed Trump Jr to the wall for that. Well, I kind of know why. But regardless of what happened in the room, that whole email chain was damning. And possible kompromat. The Russians always had a copy of those emails, This would have made the Trumps very vulnerable to blackmail during the time before they were publicly released. It should be taken very seriously.

They knew the meetings were considered wrong... or at least "questionable"... by law enforcement because they lied about having them on their security applications.

There's also the fact that they're used to running two-bit real estate scams, and have now gotten in deep over their heads in the Great Game where the Russians play hardball and come charging at you sharpened-cleats-up.

Yeah. Trump really does think he's a great deal maker and can handle the Russian mob (and government). See, it's just like when he has his flunkeys pay off hookers (and they can't even get that right).
