I stated the elements of obstruction that Mueller is pursuing happened after November 9, 2016 and therefore does not meet the spirit and intent of the order 3915–2017 as the election had concluded.

Well yes, speaking of eye roll, obstruction of the investigation of a possible crime by necessity occurs after the crime. You know, just as Clinton’s obstruction of justice was well after he got BJ in the White House. The point is Mueller was specifically empowered to do exactly that. You asked “what is the special prosecutor’s scope of investigation??? Is it collusion with Russia? or obstruction of justice?

The answer is both. It remains both.

You clearly favor using the law to bludgeon those you dislike or disagree with.

I clearly favor using the facts to bludgeon down made up falsehoods like your suggestion that the scope of Mueller’s investigation did not include obstruction of justice of the investigation. It quite plainly does.

One can find articles supporting any opinion you want. The Flat Earth Society is even out there. I deal in verifiable facts. I’ll form my opinions from them and I don’t need the help of others in doing so. I can think for myself.
