Joseph Moreno is a former prosecutor for the Department of Justice. He’s not a Trump supporter but he is looking at the Russia investigation objectively and he has a message for the left. Prepare for disappointment.
He writes at The Hill:
Prepare to be disappointed with Russia investigation conclusion
For those hoping the Russia probe’s conclusion will finally help put the controversial 2016 presidential election behind us, prepare to be disappointed.
Nobody beyond special counsel Robert Mueller’s team knows exactly what evidence has been found that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election. We may learn there was no indication that President Trump personally did anything illegal. Or Mueller may lay out rock solid proof of a criminal conspiracy or other violations that causes a chain reaction leading to the downfall of the Trump administration.
However, based on what we know to date, the most likely outcome will be something frustratingly in between. Barring a major deviation from Department of Justice policy, President Trump will not be indicted. The unique role of the president calls for a unique remedy to punish wrongdoing: impeachment under Article II of the Constitution. This would require a majority in the House of Representatives to impeach and a two-thirds majority in the Senate to convict. Upon conviction, the sole punishment is removal from office.
The whole thing has been a sham from the beginning. The left has been trying to undo the 2016 election since it happened.
