Take note... the R. Kelly defense was previously called the Bill Cosby defense.

Indeed.

Is there still a chance Trump pardons him?

What Fly said, but also though the President's pardon power is essentially unlimited, if it's determined that he did it to obstruct justice, that can be added to any potential charges against him.

In the process of refuting Hillary campaign for screwing over Bernie, are you certain you have not become a Trumpeter?

You are starting to sound exactly like a Trumpeter. "Where's the proof?" "They have nothing!" "Mueller is the bad guy. Investigate him and go after him!"

Redeem yourself, Nanners. Don't stoop down to that level. You know they won't make everything public until they have a complete case, and these sorts of investigations take a lot of time.

House to release all Russia probe transcripts: Schiff

The House Intelligence Committee will release all transcripts of interviews in its probe of Russian election interference to the special counsel's office, its Democratic chairman said on Friday after Roger Stone, a longtime ally of President Donald Trump, was charged with lying to Congress.

"This is now the second witness who has been indicted for or plead guilty to making false statements in testimony before our Committee," Rep. Adam Schiff said in a statement. "The first order of business for the Committee will be to release all remaining transcripts to the Special Counsel's Office, and we will continue to follow the facts wherever they lead.”

Schiff and Elijah Cummings, the chairman of the House oversight committee, said on Wednesday they expect Trump's longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, to testify before both panels, despite his decision to postpone his Feb. 7 appearance, citing threats against his family from Trump.

The chairmen said they understood Cohen's security concerns, but added in a statement: “This will not stop us from getting to the truth. We expect Mr. Cohen to appear before both committees, and we remain engaged with his counsel about his upcoming appearances.”

Cohen is scheduled to begin a three-year prison sentence in March after pleading guilty to charges including lying to Congress.

ROBERT MUELLER WILL INDICT A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THE NEXT 60 DAYS: ‘THEY WILL BE QUITE FAMILIAR TO THE AVERAGE AMERICAN,’ SAYS FORMER CIA DIRECTOR

Former CIA Director John Brennan believes the indictments of many individuals “familiar to the average American” are just around the corner, following the Friday arrest of Roger Stone, a former adviser to President Donald Trump.

The FBI arrested Stone on charges including obstruction of justice and witness tampering, in connection to special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Calling the Trump ally’s arrest “unsurprising,” Brennan said more indictments were likely to follow. “I expect in the next 60 days you’re going to have a fair number,” Brennan told MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday.

“I think people are waiting for the report that is coming out from Robert Mueller. What I look for most are the indictments. It’s so rich in detail. To me all of these indictments will be basically the compendium of Robert Mueller’s, the special counsel’s investigation. I expect there to be a significant number, and a significant number of names that will be quite familiar to the average American.”

Brennan said Stone was one of many individuals close to the president who have “a track record of being unethical and unprincipled.”

So the dominos are starting to fall.


People didn’t understand that this level of investigation takes time but it’s starting to be laid out there. What a time to be alive.

I doubt Trump is impeached unless he's indicted and the chances of that happening are pretty much slim.

More likely scenario is that if the Mueller report does present plenty of evidence of Trump wrongdoing, the US electorate could turn on him and he gets a primary challenge or he simply doesn't run for a second term. There's always the possibility that Mueller might offer Trump the option of resigning to avoid a constitutional crisis and the US having to go through a national and international embarrassment.

This of course is all predicated on if in fact Mueller presents a damning enough case against the POTUS.
