The Most Unlikely to be Accepted Counter-Offer of All Time

In response to indications that Mueller is going to require an interview with Donald Trump, the White House has offered to provide Mueller with a letter from Trump personally attesting that he has never broken any laws of any kind.

I kid you not.  That's their offer.  Well, that should pretty much set everything straight, right?

I just want to say something that I have believed for months now:  The Republicans in the White House and Congress are never going to allow the actual record of Trump's behavior made public.  Instead they are going to hide the testimony from Fusion GPS, and "leak," or to speak plainly, lie in public about what came out at that testimony, which they have already done on numerous occasions.  The people in the White House, up to their necks in treason, are of course going to lie every chance they get.  And as we know damned well, the minute Muller really gets close to releasing his results, he is going to be terminated, possibly with a bullet to the back of his head, and replaced by a corrupt Republican toady with no more interest in having the truth come out than Paul Ryan or Mitch McConnell.

The only chance we have of learning the truth at this point is for Muller or someone in his investigation, and either Fusion GPS or the Democrats in Congress to say, "to hell with Republican misuse of security law to hide their treason," and release all of this information.  The right of the American people to know clearly that one of their two supposed political parties is a traitorous criminal cabal working to destroy our government, is overwhelmingly more important that the mangling of security law to hide Republican criminality, but we are likely never to know the truth unless someone, or preferably multiple people, stand up and refuse to be intimidated by the jackboot behavior of the Republican party.

Like This:  Diane Feinstein is hardly my favorite Democrat- I have been more than suspicious of her since living in San Francisco in the 1970's- but she did the right thing this time by unilaterally releasing transcripts of the Fusion GPS hearings in Congress, which Republicans refused to release, while lying endlessly about them.  Feinstein, in an amazingly forthright comment, said:

"After speaking with majority and minority committee staff for 10 hours, Glenn Simpson requested the transcript of his interview be released publicly. The American people deserve the opportunity to see what he said and judge for themselves,” said Senator Feinstein. “The innuendo and misinformation circulating about the transcript are part of a deeply troubling effort to undermine the investigation into potential collusion and obstruction of justice. The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public."

Democrats:  More of this, please.  A lot more, and soon, too.

She's setting a good example! I,too, was not a fan, but she did the right thing today.
