I don't doubt that Andrew Weissman drew up an obstruction indictment, but when it didn't pass the smell test, it was shelved.

And the Mueller team has come out and advised it's not true. Weissmann has a habit of not playing by the rules, and using bully tactics. Ask the 11, 000 Anderson Cooper employees who all lost their jobs from his over-zealous prosecution that was later unanimously over-turned by SCOTUS. Besides the 4 who went to prison from his bogus prosecution, how many families were destroyed and forever altered after their family lost that AC job, benefits, etc...

It's not a "stunning revelation." It's an unsupported allegation made to sell a book.

Weissman may have drawn one up. Someone decided it wouldn’t fly. They may be able to indict a ham sandwich, but it takes a lot more to pull this stuff with a popular sitting president who clearly has done no wrong.

It was pure poetic justice that the weather ruined Mayor de Blasio’s latest stunt — turning his plans to preen about his Green New Deal efforts outside Trump Tower into a humiliating debacle inside the building.

They also argued over whether the warrant adequately informed the court that the dossier was, in

“The president’s behavior in the Cabinet Room, the Rose Garden, and subsequently was justifiably alarming, but it is about time we recognize that we are dealing with someone who is not capable of thinking rationally—our report on the Mueller report has proven that.

Are dads’ essential DIY skills in decline? According to new research, millennial dads are less capable than their own dads when it comes to everyday DIY fixes, preferring to rely on professional help instead. A new poll of 1,000 millennial dads and 1,000 baby boomer dads found that when a DIY task needs to be done at home, more than half of millennials prefer to call a professional. And when it comes to emergency “handiness” scenarios, millennial dads fall short in almost every category.
