    Mueller has also accused former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort of lying about his contacts with a Russian associate in Ukraine, though we don’t know all the details there yet.

    Fully 75 percent of Republicans say such lies have not been proven, although they have been, legally speaking. Some might argue that Flynn and Cohen don’t technically fit the definition of “members” of the Trump campaign, but it’s highly unlikely most people are drawing such a fine and highly debatable distinction between surrogates and campaign aides.

    Americans are also confused about whether Mueller has proven collusion or obstruction of justice by Trump. Americans say, 54 percent to 34 percent, that Mueller hasn’t proven that Trump’s campaign “coordinated with the Russians” and, 57 percent to 28 percent, that he hasn’t proven Trump interfered in the Russia investigation.

    But that leaves 34 percent and 28 percent, respectively, who believe Mueller has proven those things. And here’s the thing: He hasn’t even alleged them yet, much less proven them. Yet still, on collusion and obstruction of justice, 55 percent and 51 percent of Democrats believe that they have now been proven.
    Odds are you're just not going to get the kind of slam dunk you were hoping for. Barring something totally unforeseen coming out of the woodwork, impeachment is off the board. And Democrats in the House are smart to not engage in kowtowing to the ignorant base to fight the other side's ignorant base. Because that's where you lose the middle. Like the late 90's GOP can attest.

      The only reason impeachment is “off the board” is that the Republican party doesn’t care about the rule of law. Trump has commited multiple impeachable offenses, and should’ve been removed long ago.

        He was (unfortunately) elected with most of these same shortcomings in pretty plain view.

        DC no longer knows any justice other than political. That's been made clear again and again. Ultimate judgement will come down to an election.

          Fact: In spite of the GOP fishing expedition which culminated in impeachment, Clinton remained a popular president.
          tRump has NEVER been a popular president.

            Make that “the Republican Party and tRump’s supporters don’t care about the rule of law.”

                Did you just accuse someone else of being obsessed with the Clintons?

                Without the Clintons as full-time scapegoats, you would have no party platform. Click image for larger version

                    The actual tragedy is that neither party does.

                    And things won't get better until partisans in both demand better from theirs.

                      Ah, right on cue with the false “both sides” narrative.

                      Whatever helps you sleep at night.

                        Says the happy "witch hunt" Clinton voter waxing poetic on "the Rule of Law"

                        I mean that's spit take material all by its lonesome.

                        Not to say actual conscientious concerns about the reckless disregard for law in DC aren't extremely valid. They are. It just helps to hear it from people who treasure it as much when they're driving as when they're being driven over.

                        Labron obviously need not apply.

                          One of these days you're just going to have to face reality, Beaver:

                          Decades-long fishing expeditions looking into the Clintons, and the most "impeachable" offense you've been able to come up with has been a lie about an extramarital affair.

                          I know how badly you want the "both sides" narrative to be true (your ability to sleep at night must surely rest upon it) but it just isn't.

                            Kenneth Starr's investigation was the very definition of a fishing expedition. Started with Whitewater, there was nothing - he looks around, but still nothing - is it under the couch? No? Check behind that chair ... anything? Ask Newt if he knows where anything is. What? He's banging a legislative assistant on his office desk during breaks in House sessions? Just leave him a note to call me then.

                            I don't like what Clinton did in the Oval Office either, but what's worse is how you guys were a little murky on the rules back then, but now with Mueller suddenly your eyesight has improved.


                            It's simple:

                            Clinton: Gotta couple BJs from a star-struck intern, violations unrelated to his job duties.
                            Trump: Secretly lets Russian officials into the Oval Office after publicly asking them to hack into Hillary's e-mail account. And STILL he lies his ass off to every one of us on a daily basis, even to Tim Apple. Actually, he's working overtime on Tim Apple issues - told us two different lies about Tim just yesterday.

                              Now how about the lady who ran classified Intel through a pedo surfing device to avoid oversight of her "charitable" influence peddling operation.

                                What do you mean ... "The "Lady?"

                                Beavis, we've never had a woman president.



                                Unless .... okay, yes! I SEE NOW!

                                You're "deflecting" in an effort to change the subject aren't you?
