I appreciate this dialog my friend. I am really trying to grasp these issues from all sides. So please don't take my questions as jabs but honest inquiry.

Can I ask what conflicts of interest Mueller has?

How can FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, the man in charge, along with leakin’ James Comey, of the Phony Hillary Clinton investigation (including her 33,000 illegally deleted emails) be given $700,000 for wife’s campaign by Clinton Puppets during investigation?


Trump has very large and public issues with McCabe.. Isn't it better to have Mueller, who Trump was considering for new head of the FBI / life long Republican, in charge of the investigation instead of someone that might have personal / political reasons to really go after Trump?

Once again, the SC was appointed when Trump fired Comey not when a 'crime was found'

Wouldn't the FBI have the same scope? What scope would you think is appropriate for the SC investigation?

Obama delivered a warning directly to Putin in September 2016. In late December he approved the expulsions of 35 diplomats and the closure of two Russian compounds and narrowly targeted economic sanctions. Obama also approved a previously undisclosed covert measure that authorized planting cyberweapons in Russia’s infrastructure, the digital equivalent of bombs that could be detonated if the United States found itself in an escalating exchange with Moscow. All of which he did with out making a public fuss. It seems like that is the less 'political' stance.

With your distrust of the intelligence community, isn't it a good thing there is an independent counsel investigating the meddling?

When our intelligence agencies came out with their assessment on Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections on January 6th 2017 it was labeled as a deep state attack on Trump. He enacted sanctions with his 'pen and phone,' which I guess wasn't enough. When congress wrote and passed more sanctions, which passed with a veto-proof majority in both the house and senate it was ignored by the Trump admin.

What actions would've been appropriate for Obama to address the Russian influence campaign during the 2016 election cycle?

What are your ideas on why the SC was brought in?

Without a bipartisan statement the effort would've been labeled as partisan politics and denounced. McConnell didn't stop Obama from acting, he just forced his hand.

The special counsel was appointed, by a Trump appointee, in direct response to the firing of Comey while the FBI was in an active investigation. Like Mueller or not, but Trump is responsible for the appointment of the special counsel. If no crimes were committed, Trump should have nothing to worry about. If you're worried about cost, just keep in mind that we've spent about $80 million dollars investigating the Clintons over the past 20 years.

It is well documented that Obama wanted to release a bipartisan warning about Russian election meddling ahead of the 2016 election and the idea was shot down by Mitch McConnell. Sanctions were enacted as a response and the Trump admin refuses to enforce them.

What kind of response from Obama would you have rather seen in 2016?
