Wednesday Open Thread | Mueller preparing report about potential Trump obstruction of justice

Special counsel Robert Mueller is preparing a report on President Trump’s actions during his tenure in office and anything that could be considered obstruction of justice, according to The Washington Post.

Sources told the Post that Mueller relayed the information to Trump’s legal team, and emphasized his team’s need to sit down with the president in order to determine if he had any intent to foil the federal probe into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

The publication also reported on Tuesday that Mueller told Trump’s lawyers last month that he does not consider the president to be a criminal target at this point in his probe.
Trump was reportedly relieved to hear that Mueller had not considered him to be a criminal target, and has expressed more willingness to agree to a future interview.

The president has said in the past that he would be willing to sit down with Mueller’s team.

However, the special counsel still considers the president to be a subject of his investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump’s advisers have warned that the special counsel could potentially put the president at risk of becoming a criminal target.

Trump has repeatedly denied that there was any collusion between his campaign and Russian election meddling and has referred to Mueller’s probe as a “witch hunt” and a “hoax.”

    Black-ish Explores the Decision Between Attending an HBCU or a PWI That So Many of Us Had to Make
    Panama Jackson


    Last night’s episode of Black-ish hit home. Junior’s waiting on college acceptance letters, and he gets two at the same time: an acceptance and full ride to Howard University (father Dre’s alma mater), and an acceptance—but not as much money—to Stanford University.

    For Dre, the decision is simple: Howard. For Rainbow (Junior’s mother), it’s also simple: Stanford. Dre views Howard as an opportunity for Junior to experience his blackness for the first time at a fine institution (and for free), and Rainbow thinks they’ve been preparing their kids to go to places like Stanford, a superior school to Howard (in her mind). Junior agrees.

    To convince Junior to go to Howard, Dre takes him to Washington, D.C., to tour the school and show him the Howard University he loves. It seems to backfire with tremendous aplomb. Or so we think. Junior sees a school where blackness is celebrated in various fashions, and that’s alluring to him. He sees a place where he can go and be any version of black and be proud of it. I realize it’s a television show, but that made me happy, AND I think it was the right decision. You can always go to Stanford for grad school, but undergrad at an HBCU like Howard? Siiiiign me up.

    Why “Black Panther” is such a big deal for women
    Women and girls are loving “Black Panther,” which just passed the $1.28 billion box office mark worldwide

    Emily Rems,
    Poptarts04.04.2018•2:44 PM


    To discuss these issues and more, my “Poptarts” podcast co-host Callie Watts and I invited BUST magazine culture writer Bry’onna Mention onto the show to talk about her experience of the film as a black feminist.

    “There were whole groups of little girls getting together dressed as the Wakandan guards with spears and doing special dance routines, and seeing that, I ovulated,” I told Mention. “I just couldn’t even take it. How important is this cosplay element of Black Panther to kids and also to the broader culture?”

    “I’m a grown-ass 27-year-old woman and it’s important to me,” she replied. “I didn’t have any of that growing up. Like, I could have been Snow White, I could have been Cinderella, but it was always like, ‘Oh, you’re the black version.’ I had nothing [to dress up as].”

    “I think about when I was little and everyone was reading those damn ‘American Girl’ books, and all these white girls had all these time periods to explore, and they had Samantha and this one and that one,” she said. “Who did I have? Addy! She was fresh out of slavery and she was sneaking off to read. I was like, Geez! I like to read. This is not a fun time for me [to imagine]. I don’t want to be her!”

    “Even with Disney growing up, I think every little black girl somehow identified with Nala from ‘The Lion King,’ and she’s a damn cat! She’s an animal,” Mention continued. “But there were no other Disney princesses remotely close to how I look. And then there’s Jasmine, but she’s not black, she’s just brown. She’s Southeast Asian, but her complexion was closer to mine than Cinderella’s so I was rockin’ with her.”

    “So now, to see little girls have a variety of black women to choose from in one film — it’s like, I don’t even know who I’m going to be for Halloween this year! I have choices now! Whole choices. That movie was emotional for me. It was a lot. I think I cried within the first couple of moments. It was all I ever wanted and didn’t know that I needed and more.”

    “I also got emotional,” I told Mention. “I was crying early on. I had this sense rushing through me that this is what movies would look like if Hollywood producers saw women and people of color as people and not props.”

    “Yes,” Mention replied. “That one fact, that one statement says it all. They saw us as people.”

    ABC Scored With ‘Roseanne.’ But Where Are TV’s Black Working-Class Shows?
    04.04.18 5:14 AM ET

    The assumption that ‘Roseanne’ represents the working-class voters who helped put Trump in office is frankly ludicrous, no matter what ABC—and Trump himself—says.

    Happy HUMP Day, Everyone!

And we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. This is our challenge. This is the way we must grapple with this dilemma, and we will be a great people”.
