Friday Open Thread | Sen. Blumenthal: “There are indictments in this president’s future”

There are indictments in this president’s future,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal predicted on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Thursday morning. “They’re coming. Whether they’re after his presidency or during it.”

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Let me ask you about the Mueller report. Do you have information to suggest that the release is imminent?

SEN. RICHARD BLUMENTHAL: Nobody knows except Robert Mueller. Nobody really has reliable information about when it’s going to come out, and even he may not know when it’s going to come out, but one of these days all the predictions will be true and it will come out.

If there is a report — you know there’s some speculation now that he may now simply say, “I did my indictments, read my — they are speaking indictments. Read the warrants, that’s my report.”

I hope, and I think he has an obligation, to do more, to actually do a report, putting together all the pieces of the mosaic about the credible case of obstruction of justice that is right now against President Trump, about other crimes that clearly there’s evidence he’s committed.

SCARBOROUGH: He’s indicted dozens of Russians. Isn’t it important for us to know what information he has on how the Russians tried, in the words of Homeland Security Secretary, how Vladimir Putin tried to undermine American democracy in 2016 and the still trying to undermine democracy now?

BLUMENTHAL: That is really the critical point here. Even more so now than ever before, according to the intelligence we’re receiving, we need to understand what Vladimir Putin and the Trump campaign may have done together, but also the obstruction of justice that was done by the president of the United States in real time.

There are indictments in this president’s future. They’re coming. Whether they’re after his presidency or during it, obviously the Department of Justice has said you cannot indict a sitting president.

    Americans deserve to know the truth now that the Mueller report is complete. The report must be released immediately and AG Barr must publicly testify under oath about the investigation’s findings. We need total transparency here. https://twitter.com/KamalaHarris/status/1109212955147755520?s=17

    Special counsel Mueller has submitted a report to the attorney general, signaling the end of his Russia investigation

    The contents of the highly anticipated report from Robert S. Mueller III were not immediately known, but its submission signals the culmination of the nearly two-year probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election — a case that has consumed Washington and led to multiple guilty pleas from former advisers to President Trump.

      Interesting. Thanks for posting this clip, Rik.

      I’d love to see Stacey Abrams run at the top of the ticket, personally.

      Your thoughts?

    Americans are pessimistic about what life will be like in 2050. Here’s what they fear most.

    A Pew Research Center study published Thursday is full of sobering data points that underscore the level of unease in the body politic and help explain why every two years brings another change election. The comprehensive poll, released with a 58-page report, paints a grim portrait of Americans who feel trepidation about the day-to-day lives that they and their children will be forced to live in 30 years. The numbers bear out what I’ve heard for years now from voters across the country and across the ideological spectrum.
