The Attorney General of Louisiana just set off a firestorm with jaw-dropping defense of Trump

While Democrats reacted to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s surprise morning press conference with renewed calls for President Trump’s impeachment, the reaction to Mueller’s blindingly clear repudiation of the message of exoneration being peddled by the president, his servile and protective Attorney General, and his many Republican apologists was to continue to lie and deny in the face of the special counsel’s damning words.


The complete disregard by GOP Trump supporters for the truth, for the rule of law, and for the constitution was perfectly exemplified by Lousiana Attorney General Jeff Landry in a tweet this afternoon that was so completely and purposefully misleading that one has to wonder how the people of Louisiana trust him to oversee the administration of justice in their state.

In an echo of President Trump’s own mendacious response to Mueller’s remarks, Landry totally misrepresents not only the special counsel’s findings but the role of the courts and the congressional impeachment process when a president is accused of acts that rise to the level of the “high crimes and misdemeanors” that the Constitution outlines as impeachable offenses.

Let’s be CLEAR, Attorney General Landry: no court has yet to rule one way or another on President Trump’s actions. This sad fact is solely due to Mueller’s overly-strict adherence to Justice Department guidelines that have ruled that a sitting president is immune from indictment, as the Special Counsel plainly explained in his statement today.

Since no court has ruled on the accusation contained in the Mueller report, then Landry’s conclusion that Trump has been found innocent is transparently untrue. Or a lie, as most people would refer to it.

Moreover, one point that Mueller reiterated from his report today is that he specifically did not exonerate President Trump of any wrongdoing. After all, how much clearer can one be than the most quoted line of his comments:

“If we had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that.”

Not exactly a resounding declaration of innocence by any stretch of the imagination.

To truly understand the implications of the Mueller Report and the president’s potential crimes, it’s worth reading the Twitter posts of the University of New Hampshire law professor and best selling author of Proof of Conspiracy, Seth Abramson.

Here’s a recent thread of Abramson’s that outlines why people like Attorney General Landry should keep their mouths shut rather than spout off misinformed and purposefully misleading comments on the day’s events.

Innocent? Hardly.

No Collusion? No.

No obstruction? Are you kidding?


Yes, Democrats need to move on. Move on to impeachment hearings as soon as possible.
