“He tasks me; he heaps me; I see in him outrageous strength, with an inscrutable malice sinewing it. That inscrutable thing is chiefly what I hate; and be the white whale agent, or be the white whale principal, I will wreak that hate upon him. Talk to me not of blasphemy, man; I’d smite the sun if it insulted me” – Captain Ahab, “Moby Dick” by Herman Melville

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff rejected reports that no more Mueller indictments are coming, and suggested he would call the special counsel before a House panel if necessary to learn what is in the report.
“If necessary, we will call Bob Mueller or others before our committee, I would imagine the judiciary committee may call the attorney general if necessary,” the California Democrat said during an interview on CNN.
“At the end of the day, the department is under a statutory obligation to provide our committee with any information regarding significant intelligence activities, including counterintelligence. And it’s hard to imagine anything more significant than what Bob Mueller has been investigating.
“We have a right to be informed, and we will demand to be informed about it.”
Schiff was then asked if he would be satisfied if “the most sensitive information” obtained by Mueller was only shared with the so-called “gang of eight.”
“No, it would not suffice. Now, there may be a select sub-section of information they feel they can only share because of the very sensitive sources which derived the information, but he volumes of information that has been found needs to be shared with the whole committee so we can evaluate what steps have to be taken to protect the country.”
“We’re going to need to have the same sort of discovery that we saw during the last Congress, and indeed it may be far more extensive than that, to make sure that U.S. policy is driven by U.S. interest and not because the president or anyone around him is looking to make money from the Kremlin on a tower or anything else.
Schiff did not answer host Wolf Blitzer’s question as to whether or not any potential testimony would be public or behind closed doors.
In a separate interview with MSNBC, Schiff disagreed with reports there will be no more indictments forthcoming, saying instead it is “entirely possible, if not likely, that there will be” more.
“Well, what it means is that the office of the special counsel, which is essentially a contract attorney to the Justice Department, that that office won’t be bringing any further indictments,” he said.
“It doesn’t mean, of course, that main justice or the Seventh District of New York and the Eastern District or others may not bring indictments,”
“In fact, given the lengthy redactions in many of the pleadings of the special counsel eluding to other investigations, I think it’s entirely possible if not likely that there will be other indictments.
“Now, how central or peripheral they’ll be to the core issues of potential conspiracy is yet to be determined.”
President Trump’s legal team projected confidence Friday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not find collusion connected to the president, as he turned over the results of his exhaustive probe into Russian meddling during the 2016 presidential election.
“This marks the end of the Russia investigation. We await a disclosure of the facts,” attorney Rudy Giuliani told Fox News late Friday. “We are confident that there is no finding of collusion by the president and this underscores what the president has been saying from the beginning — that he did nothing wrong.”
Giuliani’s statement comes after Mueller transmitted his report to Attorney General William Barr.
The conclusions are not yet known, but Barr indicated he might be able to advise Congress of the main takeaways as early as this weekend.
That alone was cause for optimism in Trump world.
“This is a grand slam for President Trump. If Barr says he can brief Congress by this weekend, that means he has nothing,” said Joe diGenova, a former U.S. attorney who has advised Trump on the probe.
Last night, a repeat of the night of November 8, 2016, was a great night for Liquor stores and stores that carry Kleenex.
The Far Left Democratic Party and all of their Hive-mind “New Bolsheviks” will be proving in the months to come before the 2020 Presidential Election that denial truly is not just a river in Egypt.
While it was definitely a hoot to watch the likes of Pelosi, Schiff, and Schumer attempt to make demands of Attorney General Barr, it made me wonder what lengths the Democrats up on the Hill will go to in order to try to obstruct, impede, and even end the Presidency of Donald J. Trump.
The thing is, if they spend the next two years and a ton of American Taxpayers’ money doing nothing but holding “investigate meetings” in order to attack the President and his family, the Far Left Democrats will most assuredly lose in 2020.
They will have shown their backsides way too often to average American Voters who elected Donald J. Trump as President because they were sick and tired of the Washingtonian Status Quo.
If the Democrats are ever to have even had a chance in the 2020 Presidential Election, it sure would not be by siding with those on the Far Left end of the Political Spectrum in their demented obsession to somehow get Trump out of office, while not championing any sort of legislation which would benefit those average Americans mentioned earlier.
Just like Captain Ahab’s obsession with the Great White Whale, Moby Dick, led to his and his crew’s doom, so will the Democrats’ obsession with extricating President Donald J. Trump from the Oval Office doom their political future as a viable party which average Americans can relate to.
The Democrats’ embracing of special interest groups, along with their advocacy of the Socialist brand of Marxism, and their obsession to destroy Trump, are the perfect storm of tone-deafness towards those Americans who could actually give them the political power which they so intensely crave.
However, their hatred of us average Americans, whom they have referred to as “Deplorables”, and their embracing of so many things which normal people living in America’s Heartland view as “anti-American”, will doom the Democrats, like Captain Ahab, to a political watery grave.
What makes me so sure?
Well, since my family were Southern Democrats until Ronald Wilson Reagan ran for President, I guess that you can just…
“Call me Ishmael”.
