Default Re: Obstruction of justice bombshell will explode before midterms

Three points...

1) This is an opinion piece...and it's by a guy who was a staffer to TWO different Democrat representatives...a grain of salt will be too much salt...

2) Notice how the headline is a statement of fact...It "will explode"...yet the second sentence in the article says...

Quote:
The reason is that the odds are very high that Mueller will offer a declarative public statement before the midterm elections, and very likely before Labor Day, that the president is guilty of obstruction of justice.
Even if you believe this partisan hack, "very high" and "very likely" do NOT mean "WILL"...in any language...

3) Read the bolded parts of this sentence again...

Investigators (and prosecutors) do NOT declare someone guilty...To do so before an indictment, trial, and conviction is retarded...Beyond retarded...
