    Imagine how different government would be if we only elected people that have done things that no one could ever be ashamed of. I do wonder if the resident feels shame.

    Superposition asks if tiny feels shame. That’s an interesting question. Typically, psychopaths have zero empathy, defining the core of their mental illness.

    That’s the case here, of course. Shame is an unknown emotion to tiny because he’s clearly, obviously psychopathic.

    Some of the people who CREATED the guidelines that govern what can be released have already written publicly that Barr’s statement about what he can not release to Congress is WRONG and not what the guidelines say.

    I am curious about the fallout from some other questions. Certainly, there have been past cases which went after people who facilitated crime not by participating in those crimes but by creating barriers to law enforcement, AND there have been past cases in which crime lords, drug cartel leaders, etc. were called to pay for what their employees did to aid them. Setting a new precedent on either of these two issues could greatly hamper law enforcement against some very serious criminals by badly complicating such cases in court.

    Obstruction of Justice is such a very bad charge against a president that it has been the one reported to be most worrying Trump’s legal team. Trump DID make public statements that appear to fit the definition, but there is a question raised whether he can be charged with Obstruction of Justice without it being connected to charges of a crime by that individual himself rather than just by the person influenced.

    Meanwhile, there DEFINITELY were successful prosecutions of Attempted Collusion (not the exact term (?), but easily understood) by multiple members of the campaign, which itself is a crime, so that raises a different question: at what point do illegal actions of employees have to also infer responsibility of the boss?

    So, there are questions if Trump can be held at all responsible for the actions of multiple high level campaign employees with whom he had direct meetings, AND there is the question (IF bosses get off the hook) of whether obstruction can be charged if a criminal charge is not being held against them.

    Depending on how Trump’s legal team thinks the questions will resolve in court Barr might release the full Mueller report, with retracted areas, or not, with Barr taking the fall.
