1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (196 sites): Palmer Report: This isn’t going how Donald Trump was hoping

Speculation continues to run rampant regarding Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, which he delivered to Attorney General William Barr last week. We all know that Barr miraculously reduced over 300 pages of information into a four-page memo, and most agree that Barr’s memo cannot possibly give a clear indication of everything contained in the report.


While speculation as to the report’s contents and its release to the public continue, “President” Trump held one of his hate rallies in Michigan, proclaiming his innocence to the crowd. Those proclamations are based on Barr’s whitewashing of the Mueller report. Barr’s memo obviously leaves more questions than answers, and while Trump may crow about his innocence, others want to know what Robert Mueller wrote about his investigation in his more than three hundred pages. While the public anxiously awaits the outcome of the battle for the release of Mueller’s report, NPR and PBS teamed up with Marist to gauge where voters stand on Trump’s self-proclaimed exoneration.



According to the NPR/PBS/Marist poll, only approximately one-third of Americans believe that Trump is in the clear. The same poll asked whether Democrats should continue their investigations into Trump, and the results were split 48% to 46% in favor. Lee Miringoff, who is the director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, states the obvious: People want to see the report. According to this poll, people also want to see both Mueller and Barr testify to get a better understanding of how everything has transpired.



I tend to agree with those polled, though I want the testimony because I believe Barr whitewashed Mueller’s report to try to save Trump’s hide. It will be far more difficult for him to continue to do so once he is under oath. Having Mueller testify as to what’s really in the report, as well as his investigative methodology, would go a long way toward clearing up any ambiguities. Most agree. This poll reveals that two-thirds (or 66%) of those polled want Mueller to testify before Congress, with 64% requesting testimony from Barr. Again, I believe people sense that something is not quite right with this entire fiasco.


The most damning part of this poll for Donald Trump is that almost six in ten participants believe that questions remain as to Trump’s involvement in criminal activities, with 36% claiming Trump is in the clear. According to the poll takers, that 36% figure is “close to where Trump’s approval rating has been throughout his presidency.” Interestingly, while the Barr whitewashed memo clearing Trump of collusion increased his approval rating, it did so by only 3% (up from 39% in January to 42%), still well below that of a successful presidency.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (196 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump goes completely off the deep end about Robert Mueller

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


When the week began, Donald Trump and his newly handpicked Attorney General William Barr were trying to sell us on the notion that Barr’s silly four page pro-Trump “summary” of the Mueller report meant we didn’t need to see anything in the actual Mueller report. As the week ends, that attempted coverup is rapidly falling apart. Barr is now trying to incrementally backpedal, even as Trump simply goes berserk about it.



Here’s what Donald Trump had to say about Robert Mueller this evening: “Robert Mueller was a Hero to the Radical Left Democrats, until he ruled that there was No Collusion with Russia (so ridiculous to even say!). After more than two years since the “insurance policy” statement was made by a dirty cop, I got the answers I wanted, the Truth. The problem is, no matter what the Radical Left Democrats get, no matter what we give them, it will never be enough. Just watch, they will Harass & Complain & Resist (the theme of their movement). So maybe we should just take our victory and say NO, we’ve got a Country to run!” There are obviously a couple of problems here.



First, when Trump says things like “so ridiculous to even say,” he sounds like a teenager who has falsified a report card and is now trying to spin it after having gotten caught. Second, when he says things like “So maybe we should just take our victory and say NO,” he’s obviously making direct threats against the rule of law and the American democracy, but he’s also revealing just how scared he is of the Mueller report becoming public.


It’s only been five days since William Barr tried to bury the Mueller report with his laugh-out-loud phony summary, and Donald Trump is already expressing thinly veiled fear that the report is going to come out despite his team’s best efforts. By the time we reach the April 2nd deadline that House Democrats have given Barr to turn over the full report under threat of subpoena, Trump’s behavior will likely be even further off the deep end.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (196 sites): Palmer Report: Rachel Maddow is absolutely right

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

Nobody’s favorite conservative pundit, Rich Lowry, wrote a piece in Politico titled “Rachel Maddow’s Deep Delusion,” and apart from missing the mark by about three million popular votes, I think it exemplifies something that’s wearing on in the minds of many Republican pundits and Republicans on Capitol Hill – fear.

Lowry repeatedly refers to Maddow’s famously trenchant analysis of the facts as having a “conspiratorial” hue, saying too that she practically fetishized covering this saga. He essentially criticizes her and her team’s exemplary journalism for being too detail-oriented. He then proceeds to misinterpret reality further by saying that the Roger Stone indictment “should have been the final indication, demonstrating in detail how the Trump campaign was on the outside looking in on the WikiLeaks operation … yet [Maddow] still hasn’t truly grappled with the fact that Mueller came up empty on collusion.” His conclusion: she’s deluded.


Here’s the thing about Maddow: she reports the facts. She goes where the facts point her, and she doesn’t spin them. It’s remarkably easy to fact-check Maddow because she cites virtually every source by name during her show, often displaying the source or some form of it on the screen. Conflating enthusiasm with imprudent glee at the tribulations of the Trump administration is his partisan spin on playing the victim, something conservatives are often taught before they can even speak. It’s their signature go-to “defense.” Lastly, saying that Maddow can’t grapple with the fact that Mueller didn’t find evidence of collusion is, as we know, patently absurd. We don’t really know what Mueller said, but we know what AG Barr said.



Lowry’s delusion here was a predictable one: conservative pundit writes pro-conservative piece on liberal woman’s reporting on conservative leader’s corrupt dealings while employing typical conservative defenses of distorting reality and playing pseudo-victim. In effect, he’s saying that Maddow is delusional for reporting facts and adhering to reality. Why do this? Fear.



Lowry, his ilk, and the conservatives in DC are riding their defenses hard now to poison the well of public opinion. Barr’s report came out first and came to a shamelessly pro-Trump conclusion. The public heard it, took note, and some will surely be skeptical when we get more details about what really lies in Mueller’s report. When the headlines change, people get suspicious. Some will buy into a “deep state” explanation, which Trump will almost certainly roll out again. That gets us to the reason they’re afraid.


Robert Mueller “did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.” What Mueller is saying here, in somewhat lawyerly speak, is that there was insufficient evidence established at the time to come to that conclusion. When Mueller says that the findings didn’t exonerate Trump or prove him guilty, it doesn’t mean no crimes were committed. That’s for Congress to decide. This isn’t over, and that’s why so many conservatives are taking this lull in developments to defend, deny, and sow some deep delusions.
