Mueller Report is finally in. Now what?
report reminded me when of former U.S. General Attorney Eric Holder
tempered the expectations of Ferguson protesters towards the
Department of Justice’s investigation into the murder of Mike
Brown. During the Ferguson Uprising and demands for the hide of
killer cop Darren Wilson. Holder let us know the bar was too high for
a criminal indictment. There’d be plenty in the investigative
report that could be used for other purposes. In short, a gift to the
movement for racial justice.
400+ page Mueller Report found no direct evidence that trump’s
campaign colluded with the Russian government during the 2016
presidential election. Ditto on evidence that trump obstructed
justice. Once the public gets the un-redacted copy of the report, I’m
sure it will contain a treasure trove of evidence that proves trump
is a liar, a thief, an obstructionist of justice and a colluder with
a foreign power. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s

justice. Let’s not forget the investigation led to the

from his foundation to his taxes. The U.S. House of Reps is going
hard against the prez and the bulldogs at the South District of New

time for a mass civic lesson to educate people about the checks and
balances in a democracy. There are three branches of government and
there’s The People. This is not just a national hatin’ on
trump campaign. If he gets his way, trump would love to crown himself
King of the U.S.
abuses of power and corruption in the trump administration have been
relentless. Many constitutional scholars believe that some fall under
the impeachment scope of “high crimes and misdemeanors.”
Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats have been reluctant to go down the
impeachment road fearing political backlash at the 2020 ballot box.
This cannot be about political expediency. We cannot make this about
convenience or financial costs or partisan retaliation.
country is at a serious crossroads, democracy is hanging in the
balance. Most of us don’t know much about this country’s
history or how government functions. It’s time to learn. It’s
time to stop the advancement of a dictator.
