Mary Trump, the president’s psychologist niece who wrote the bestselling book Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, had three key questions:
Has any reasonable American ever
–doubted the validity of mail-in ballots?
–questioned the value of the postal service?
–questioned the legitimacy of an election before a single vote is cast?

Read a transcript of Trump’s briefing:
“Are you considering at any point an executive order concerning mail ballots?” Basically “yes, and”-ing the president on a premise that makes no sense.

Watch: GOP Congressman Screws Up as Mueller Gives Him a Damning Answer Extremely Dangerous to Trump
A three-term Republican Congressman who is a former district attorney asked Robert Mueller a critical question and received an answer he clearly did not expect.
Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) asked the former Special Counsel if a president can be charged with a crime after he leaves office, and received an answer he did not expect.
“Could you charge the president with a crime after he left office?” Congressman Buck asked Mueller.
“Yes,” the former special counsel and former FBI Director replied.
Surprised, Buck tried to clarify to get the answer he assumed he would get.
“You believe you could charge the President of the United States with obstruction of justice after he left office?” he probed.
“Yes,” Director Mueller again replied.
Rep. Ken Buck: “Could you charge the president with a crime after he left office?”
Robert Mueller: “Yes”
Buck: “You could charge the President of the United States with obstruction of justice after he left office?”

Many on social media cheered.
Let me be the first to welcome Ken Buck to the resistance. https://t.co/Pb7JmMBdTN

Did Ken Buck just get Mueller to confirm that Trump can be charged with crimes for what he’s done after he leaves office?
A Republican did that?

Ken Buck just violated the first thing you're taught in trial practice in law school: "On cross examination, don't ask a question you don't already know the answer to". And he asked the question twice! 😂 https://t.co/8XvkhH8m9e
