Trump is manifestly unfit for office. He committed obstruction of justice to obscure his crimes and collusion. There is no ethical standard. Ignorance is not a defense of the Law.

Russia investigation

the Russians attacked the 2016 presidental election of the United States. The Special Counsel investigation was an investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections and suspicious links between Trump associates and Russian officials from May 2017 to March 2019.

Robert Mueller submitted his report on links between the Trump campaign and Russians as well as Donald Trump's attempts to obstruct the probe. Four days later AG Barr mislead Congress by releasing his summary of the report which was favorable to Trump, and later released the redacted report. Mueller objected about the handling of his report which led to misunderstandings of his team's work. And it was later revealed, and we now know, that he had twice raised concerns to Barr about the handling of his report.
