A lifetime of misuse of a word. Thanks teach.
It could've been intentional.

Stanch and Staunch. Although the two spellings are often seen used interchangeably, recommended modern usage is to distinguish between them: stanch: verb. to stop the flow of something, usually blood. staunch: adjective. (of persons) strong, standing firm and true to one's principles.


The debate is, what more, if anything, should be done to help staunch the flow of blood?

That can’t be right.  The Steele dossier was widely discredited.

Dog WTH?
I gotta tell you, the next tweet (or utterance) by Trump will be that the emoluments clause is unconstitutional.  

We’ll see!

so is mueller getting grilled wed or fri?
Depends on how long they need to marinate that tough old bird.....

 My theory is that he will have a medical issue the night before, and need to be hospitalized, then recuperate before testifying..... It could be months. He's already made it clear that he wants nothing to do with this situation any longer.

Can ya blame him?  He spent 2 years doing what was asked of him, with people on both sides making all kinds of spurious claims about his integrity, and since he published his findings, everyone wants to twist what he reported to suit their own agendas.   I'd be really tempted to tell everyone to STFU and leave me alone too.

I think it’s more about getting the story out to the general population. Very few regular folks read the report, but this will get TV coverage. Huge difference.

Now there's a pile of new information about Assange's communications, contacts, and interactions with the GRU (KGB), and the Trump campaign..... I'm guessing this is why the hearing was delayed. Now that this is out in the public, maybe Mueller can say more than he could before......

Yeah, over two years he was paid ( I'm assuming ) fairly well from the public purse. After two years the report comes out and the conclusion is ambiguous enough that both sides can claim different conclusions and plenty of people are unclear on what the conclusion was. After that he doesn't really feel like explaining himself, I thought the guy was a public servant, paid by the public to let us know if the president was a naughty boy or not. I think a significant number of the public, even those who have read the report aren't really sure what the conclusion meant, therefore he hasn't finished yet.

For people who read and understand English there is not much ambiguity about Trump's attempts to obstruct justice among other things. It was also stated that the under present circumstances he felt a sitting POTUS could not be charged. Certain news sources of course offer a different opinion. I prefer the facts.

It was a double negative. "I am not saying the president is not a criminal". Well OK then.........

I hear you , but there are plenty of people who can't or won't read the whole 400 page report. They might be too busy, not sufficiently literate, intelligent, maybe english isn't their first language. I guess my point is that we the people seemingly want further clarification we should get it because we paid him.

As for the conclusion that the POTUS can't be charged, when did he realize that bit right at the end or when he got started ? I feel like that could have been mentioned earlier.
