Trump is a rather shitty negotiator for all his bluster

Mueller has now finished the Russia probe and delivered his report to the AG.

Needs to be leaked already....

Wow.  I guess if people predict the end of something enough times it'll eventually happen.  And it feels like the leaking holes have been plugged enough lately that we probably won't get any sneak peeks.

No, this is just interdimensional genius levels of intellect that we can't even begin to fathom. That's why it looks like it's shitty negotiation; we can't comprehend how smart it is.

Why twice?  Wouldn't it be once an eternity?

Now begins Phase 2, wherein the GOP will do everything they can to keep the report locked away on national security grounds, like the Ark of the Covenant. Or they'll try to issue a "summary report" that will whitewash the fuck out of it.

This is why the Dems controlling the House is so damn important. If need be, they'll subpoena Mueller and have him read the damn thing out loud on C-SPAN.

I doubt there's anything even in the report. Mueller is a Republican FBI agent, he's not going to do anything to seriously compromise Trump. Smack him around a bit, fry some small fish so he knows what it is, sure. But to actually create something that could help Democrats, or god forbid, leftists? That ain't happening.

On the contrary, Comrade Trump needs somewhere to go once the Mueller report goes public.

Really? I see no sign of them trying to block it so far, and they would have their own reasons for making it public.

Republican or Democrat, Mueller supposedly has an ounce of decency in him... And I can't imagine a decent man standing at Trump's side, especially when exposed that much to the details of his infidelities.

Your argument is that the cop has a fundamental decency to him?

While I'm well aware of the tragic state of US law enforcement, I find it a bit extreme to assume that it's impossible for a single individual to possess some amount of integrity.

That'd almost be like... Bigotry.

I think we all heard it would wrap up in March. And February, January, December, November, October...
