The left thinks President Trump is guilty and they have already handed down their sentence – impeach the mother****.

What he is guilty of, they do not say (collusion is not a crime if that is what he did) but all the evidence points to his main crime being taking advantage of a terrible candidate – Hillary Clinton.

Hillary is and was an establishment stooge and in the election all about sticking it to the established order, she really had no chance.

Enter Robert Mueller as the left’s best hope to avoid electoral oblivion – the soon to be famous Mueller report.

The left thinks this will solve all their problems but they forgot one thing and it is making Pelosi nervous.

Trump can claim executive privilege or even classify the report and it will never see the light of day and there is not a darn thing Pelosi can do about.

From The New York Post: The White House may claim executive privilege to block parts of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation from Congress and the public, according to a report Monday.

Mueller could release his report to the Justice Department as soon as February, and the House, which is controlled by Democrats, will demand the department give them the report so it can be made public, Bloomberg News reported.

To prevent that from happening, Team Trump might claim executive privilege to keep it bottled up.

“We will look at it and see if the president thinks there is a valid claim and if there is, do we want to make it,” Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani told Bloomberg. “We reserve the right. We don’t know if we have to, but we haven’t waived it.”

Giuliani, the former New York mayor, said the administration would be willing to go to court to protect material it considers privileged.

Mueller is investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election and any possible collusion by Trump or members of his campaign. Mueller is also investigating whether Trump obstructed justice.

According to federal regulations governing special counsels, Mueller is required to give the report to top officials at the Justice Department — and not to Congress or the public.

At that point, the decision would be up to acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, or AG-designate William Barr, if he’s been confirmed to lead the Justice Department by then.

Both men have been critical of the special counsel’s investigation.

Trump and his lawyers are expected to get a chance to view the report in advance if the Justice Department is planning on releasing it publicly.

They may then claim executive privilege if the report contains information about Trump’s time in the White House or during the transition.

Presidents have claimed executive privilege to keep certain communications private to preserve their ability to get candid advice from their aides and advisers.
