What has draft-dodger sweating bullets. . . *PIC*

(Salon.com) . . . Mueller is asking Sean Spicer what the president told him before he faced the press every day and lied over and over again, saying that there had been no contacts between the Trump campaign and Russians.
Mueller is asking former chief of staff Reince Priebus what the president told him about why he fired FBI Director James Comey.
Mueller is asking former campaign aide Papadopoulos whom in the Trump campaign he informed about his contacts with Russians who promised “dirt” on Hillary Clinton and told him they had “emails” belonging to Clinton and the Democratic Party.
He’s asking former National Security Council executive secretary Keith Kellogg what was done by his compatriots to help House Intelligence chairman Devin Nunes gather his “intercepts” in the White House that supposedly proved that Trump’s “wires were tapped.”
Mueller is going to ask Hope Hicks and Jared Kushner and others what was said on Air Force One the night that Trump came up with the absurd excuse for the Trump Tower meeting with four Russians — that it was all about “adoption.”
Mueller is going to ask Jared Kushner and White House counsel Don McGahn about the letter that Trump and Kushner cooked up one night at Trump’s New Jersey golf course justifying the firing of James Comey.
. . .So what charges could Mueller bring against the remaining Trump officials who aren’t already charged, and, most especially, Trump himself? An excellent place to look is 18 U.S. Code § 4 -- Misprision of felony: “Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.”
The “felony” that was committed was theft of the Democratic Party emails by the Russians. We already know that no one on the Trump campaign reported the theft of the emails to the authorities. Instead, Trump weaponized them against Hillary Clinton by using them more than 160 times to attack his opponent during the campaign.
Judging by the Trump people Mueller has questioned, and the nature of the information he is seeking from them, it seems a sure thing that he is looking at charging Trump officials and Trump himself with obstruction of justice in the firing of Comey, and perhaps in the way Trump leaned on the heads of the Central Intelligence Agency and National Security Agency (as well as Comey himself) to end the Russia investigation. On Friday, thanks to the New York Times, we learned that Trump spent the summer calling senators and congressmen on the intelligence committees, asking them to end the Russia investigation.
