THE FIX IS IN, AGAIN? – BERNIE SANDERS supporters are fearful that the rigging of the 2016 Democratic presidential primary will relived in 2020, as the Democratic Party seems poised to support Joe Biden.

Cory Booker :”Robert Mueller’s statement makes it clear: Congress has a legal and moral obligation to begin impeachment proceedings immediately.”
“This is as close to an impeachment referral as it gets. Robert Mueller could not clear the president, nor could he charge him — so he has handed the matter to Congress, which alone can act to deliver due process and accountability.”- Pete Buttigieg
Oh Bernie Sanders. >>> “Given the reality that we have a president who believes he is above the law, Congress must continue its investigations. If the House Judiciary Committee deems it necessary, I will support their decision to open an impeachment inquiry.”

How do you impeach a Republican President for a crime that was committed by the Democrats? WITCH-HUNT!

Mueller found obstruction & now the WH is part of an ongoing cover-up.
