The New Abwehr Hypothesis of The Operation Trump: A Study In Political Psychology, Political Criminology, and Psychohistory, and as the aid for the General, Criminal and the Counterintelligence Investigations of Donald Trump - by Michael Novakhov, M.D. (Mike Nova): Web Research, Analysis, Hypotheses, and Opinions | Current News | Reviews of media reports | Selected reading lists | Site: http://trumpinvestigations.org/
Trump says 'it wouldn't bother me at all' if full Mueller report is released – live The Guardian: The president says it is up to the attorney general whether the full details of the Trump-Russia investigation are released.
William Barr: Although my review is ongoing, I believe that it is in the public interest to describe the report and to summarize the principal conclusions reached by the Special Counsel and the results of his investigation.
In the report, the Special Counsel noted that, in completing his investigation, he employed 19 lawyers who were assisted by a team of approximately 40 FBI agents, intelligence analysts, forensic accountants, and other professional staff. The Special Counsel issued more than 2,800 subpoenas, executed nearly 500 search warrants, obtained more than 230 orders for communication records, issued almost 50 orders authorizing use of pen registers, made 13 requests to foreign governments for evidence, and interviewed approximately 500 witnesses.
The report does not recommend any further indictments, nor did the Special Counsel obtain any sealed indictments yet to be made public.
The Special Counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election. As the report states: “[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”
The Special Counsel therefore did not draw a conclusion – one way or the other – as to whether the examined conduct constituted obstruction. Instead, for each of the relevant actions investigated, the report sets out evidence on both sides of the question and leaves unresolved what the Special Counsel views as “difficult issues” of law and fact concerning whether the President’s actions and intent could be viewed as obstruction. The Special Counsel states that “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”
After reviewing the Special Counsel’s final report on these issues; consulting with Department officials, including the Office of Legal Counsel; and applying the principles of federal prosecution that guide our charging decisions, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and I have concluded that the evidence developed during the Special Counsel’s investigation is not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense.
Generally speaking, to obtain and sustain an obstruction conviction, the government would need to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a person, acting with corrupt intent, engaged in obstructive conduct with a a sufficient nexus to a pending or contemplated proceeding. In cataloguing the President’s actions, many of which took place in public view, the report identifies no actions that, in our judgement, constitute obstructive conduct, had a nexus to a pending or contemplated proceeding, and were done with corrupt intent, each of which, under the Department’s principles of federal prosecution guiding charging decisions, would need to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt to establish an obstruction-of-justice offense.
As I have previously stated, however, I am mindful of the public interest in this matter. For that reason, my goal and intent is to release as much of the Special Counsel’s report as I can consistent with applicable law, regulations, and Departmental policies.
As President Trump welcomed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to the White House Monday, the Israel Defense Forces announced they have begun striking Hamas targets along the Gaza Strip after a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip hit a residence in Israel.
"Our prayers are with our friends in Israel as they carry out an incredible way of life in the face of great terror," Mr. Trump said, adding the U.S. represents Israel's "right to defend itself."
Netanyahu was supposed to have a state dinner at the White House Tuesday and address the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), but cut his visit short after the residential rocket hit, building on already sky-high tensions in the region.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu mocked the investigations that have plagued Donald Trump’s administration at the White House on Monday, as the president signed an executive order officially announcing U.S. recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the disputed Golan Heights.
In comments made before reporters, Netanyahu told Trump, “I’ve brought you a case of the finest wine.” Continuing, the prime minister said, “I understand you're not a great wine drinker. But could I give it to your staff?”
Trump responded in the affirmative, prompting Netanyahu to quip, “And I hope they don't open an investigation on it.”

The Israeli leader’s remark came a day after Attorney General William Barr officially revealed the conclusions of special counsel Robert Mueller’s 22-month-long investigation into whether or not Trump’s 2016 campaign team colluded with Russia. Mueller’s final report concluded Trump and his associates did not conspire with Moscow, although it left open the possibility that the president had obstructed justice by interfering with the probe.
Netanyahu’s joke was met with laughter, and Trump, smiling broadly, shook the Israeli leader’s hand. The president’s staff, including his son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, smiled in the background.
Notably, the Israeli prime minister is facing indictment back home for alleged corruption. Netanyahu has been accused of favorably adjusting regulations to benefit Bezeq telecommunications, which in turn provided favorable media coverage. The prime minister and his wife allegedly accepted bribes as part of the scandal, including cigars, champagne and jewelry.
As Netanyahu faces a neck-and-neck election early next month, Trump’s decision to recognize Israel’s claim to the Golan Heights, which were captured from Syria in 1967 and later annexed, is widely seen as an attempt to boost a close political ally in the Middle East. The international community, based on numerous resolutions from the United Nations, does not recognize Israel’s claim to the territory.

“Under my administration, the unbreakable alliance between the United States and Israel has never been stronger," Trump told reporters at the White House on Monday, Bloomberg reported. Since taking office, the president has gone counter to decades of U.S. foreign policy toward Israel, officially recognizing Jerusalem as the country’s capital and disregarding the Palestinians claim to the historic city. He has also cut U.S. funding to the Palestinians and taken a hardline stance against Israel’s arch regional rival, Iran.
Analysts have suggested that if Netanyahu fails to win the upcoming April election, Trump’s foreign policy toward the region could face a significant roadblock. The president has tasked his son-in-law Kushner with mapping out a Middle East peace deal, but Netanyahu’s possible loss in the election may potentially derail the plan altogether.
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team included forensic accountants who helped the former FBI director investigate allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, according to a letter released Sunday by Attorney General William Barr summarizing Mueller’s findings.
The four-page letter provides few details about the investigation or Mueller’s conclusions, but mentioned the composition of his team. “In the report, the Special Counsel noted that, in completing his investigation, he employed 19 lawyers who were assisted by a team of approximately 40 FBI agents, intelligence analysts, forensic accountants, and other professional staff.”
The brief summary did not discuss the exact work of the forensic accountants, but Mueller’s team was involved in investigating former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who was convicted of tax fraud and bank fraud charges, and former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, who was convicted of tax fraud and lying to Congress. Mueller’s team also reportedly subpoenaed records from Deutsche Bank concerning Trump-related entities.
The report acknowledged efforts by the Russian government and a Russian organization known as the Internet Research Agency to meddle in the 2016 election in support of the Trump campaign and hack into the email accounts of officials on the Hillary Clinton campaign and in the Democratic Party. However, the report seemingly cleared Trump of collusion allegations, according to Barr’s summary, while leaving many questions unanswered about the Trump team’s contacts with Russians. ”As the report states, ‘[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.’”

I think that Comey is correct. It looks like Trump is engaged in (possibly deliberate) hostile, anti-English Speaking Alliance (see his recent anti-UK & anti-Australia remarks about the subjects of "Barr Investigation", with the Ukraine thrown in, for the good deceptive measure), PROPAGANDA; with overtly and/or covertly expressed "pro-Axis": pro-Germany and pro-Japan sentiments, and also some pro-Nazi racial hints, from his symbolic perspectives of the USS WASP, and other dubious optics of his Memorial Day 2019 Japan visit. I think humbly, realizing all the seriousness of this statement, that Mr. Trump might be the "unwitting" or "witting" (this has to…
