The media haven’t managed to take down Donald Trump yet, but that may be about to change thanks to this white-hot scoop from the Washington Post:

This is YUGE.

More from WaPo:

More than 370 former federal prosecutors who worked in Republican and Democratic administrations have signed on to a statement asserting special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings would have produced obstruction charges against President Trump — if not for the office he held.

The statement — signed by myriad former career government employees as well as high-profile political appointees — offers a rebuttal to Attorney General William P. Barr’s determination that the evidence Mueller uncovered was “not sufficient” to establish that Trump committed a crime.

“Each of us believes that the conduct of President Trump described in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report would, in the case of any other person not covered by the Office of Legal Counsel policy against indicting a sitting President, result in multiple felony charges for obstruction of justice,” the former federal prosecutors wrote.

“We emphasize that these are not matters of close professional judgment,” they added. “Of course, there are potential defenses or arguments that could be raised in response to an indictment of the nature we describe here. . . . But, to look at these facts and say that a prosecutor could not probably sustain a conviction for obstruction of justice — the standard set out in Principles of Federal Prosecution — runs counter to logic and our experience.”

Wow, guys. Talk about a game changer. This totally changes the game. By which we mean … it makes absolutely no difference whatsoever. Not even with this assist from CNN:

But since when do the Guardians of Truth let pointlessness stand in their way?

Now … impeachment?


It’s gonna be a loooong six years for our brave firefighters.
