Dems need candidate to defeat Trump in ’20

Well, the Mueller investigation has finally ended.

It seems the report is subject to interpretation, but one thing the report did answer was the question of Russian interference. It was indeed proven that Russia did interfere in our 2016 election.

Whether or not Donald Trump or others knew or helped with this interference is not relevant. Trump was put in the White House by a process that was unlawful, illegal and unethical to the extreme.

His presidency should be deemed illegitimate.

Barr also stated that Mueller reached no conclusion concerning Trump obstructing justice. Trump admitted on national TV that he fired James Comey because of the Russia investigation. How is firing someone who is investigating you not obstructing justice? Additionally, it was stated in the report that Trump said “Mueller has to go.”

Another attempt at obstructing justice?

Hopefully in 2020, the Democratic Party can put forth a worthwhile candidate who will have no trouble defeating Trump.

I agree 100 percent with Elizabeth Warren and some others who want to do away with the Electoral College. Do some research and see how the Electoral College came about. It has something to do with a black slave being counted as three-fifths of a person.

As far as William Barr, Trump’s hand-picked attorney general, does anyone actually believe that he is looking out for the interests of the people, or for the interests of Trump? He’s nothing more than a Trump protector, a puppet.

The fix is in, and the Democrats better find a way to deal with this so we don’t end up with another four years of this president.
