What if Mueller finds the Russians and Trump worked together to get him elected?…Open Thread for Feb. 12, 2018…

FiveThirtyEight asks the unthinkable….

What does America have in place to deal witha President that got help from a foreign power to assume office?

The lack of an established process for reviewing elections points to a larger issue: The structures established by the Constitution assumed a world in which the presidency and the Electoral College were not fully absorbed into a contentious national party system. That vision has long since been replaced by one in which presidential elections are national contests over policy agendas and ideas. The text of our Constitution has never been changed to reflect this reality. Instead, the Electoral College remains the final word on who gets to be president. When it comes to the possibility that the winning side colluded with a foreign power to influence the election outcome, the Constitution doesn’t offer much in the way of a plan….

….experts disagree about whether courts can order presidential elections to be held again. That’s not great news for angry people hoping for a do-over. And even if it is constitutionally permissible, there’s much broader agreement that the standard for invalidating an election result and holding another vote is quite high. University of Memphis law professor Steven Mulroy told me that courts will usually entertain this option only if they determine a violation of rules that would change the election outcome. In the case of the 2016 election, this would likely require proving tampering in several states where the vote was close — enough to change the result in the Electoral College. In that case, a few states would vote again, not the entire country,…

Note…

The solution has been in the few instances?

It’s up to the President himself to to ‘do the right thing’….

THAT certainly is NOT comforting….

Update….

Mueller and Co. just answered the question that headlines this post….

NOT about his other actions ???

Inaddtion, it is unknown if Kushner will be called in to answer anymore questions and if this was the only time he was questioned…In addition?

The questioning itself had to have an effect on the President’s son-in-law….

President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner has been questioned by special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of investigators about former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

That’s according to a person familiar with the investigation who spoke to The Associated Press Wednesday night on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to speak publicly about the matter.

The person said the questioning of Kushner took about 90 minutes or less and was aimed in part at establishing whether Kushner had any information on Flynn that might be exculpatory.

The person said multiple White House witnesses have been asked about their knowledge of Flynn, who was forced to resign from the White House in February after officials concluded he had misled them about his contacts with the Russian ambassador….

WikiLeaks: Officially in the bag for Trump…Daily Kos…

In case you had the slightest shadow of a doubt that Julian Assange and WikiLeaks have taken a permanent turn away from the pursuit of spreading truth and are now instead (for some godforsaken reason) serving as a pro-Trump propaganda outlet, they’ve done you the kindness of clarifying the issue by trying to sling dirt on Robert Mueller in the most disgustingly dishonest way possible.

We already knew that Assange coordinated with Roger Stone and hates Hillary, but this is a whole other can of worms: Now WikiLeaks is trying to protect Trump from the man investigating him by attempting to discredit Mueller as some sort of deep-state criminal who sold nuclear weapons to the Russians.

So, without further ado, here’s the lie of the day:

Special Prosecutor Robert Muelller flew to Moscow and gave the FSB 10 grams of Highly Enriched Uranium (HEU) in 2009

Oh my god, what a startling revelation!

… Oh, wait, what’s that?

Ah, right, it’s total bullshit.

It sure takes cojones to post the entire text of a document on your website, then lie openly about its contents. Or maybe it’s just stupidity and sloppiness. Or maybe it’s just the knowledge that a huge chunk of the American people will accept anything pro-Trump without question…..
