I am unsure of the source since I got it from my son . He says Assange showed proof the the DNC hack was a download . That is all I know but have read information before about the download speeds . I have no faith in crowdstrike and it was covered in Bongino's book Spygate .
First, a traditional prosecution or declination decision entails a binary determination to initiate or decline a prosecution, but we determined not to make a traditional prosecutorial judgment. The Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) has issued an opinion finding that "t he indictment or criminal prosecution of a sitting President would impermissibly undermine the capacity of the executive branch to perform its constitutionally assigned functions" in violation of "the constitutional separation of powers." 1 Given the role of the Special Counsel as an attorney in the Department of Justice and the framework of the Special Counsel regulations , see 28 U.S.C. § 515;28 C.F.R. § 600.7(a), this Office accepted OLC's legal conclusion for the purpose of exercising prosecutorial jurisdiction. And apart from OLC's constitutional view, we recognized that a federal criminal accusation against a sitting President would place burdens on the President's capacity to govern and potentially preempt constitutional processes for addressing presidential misconduct.

They are alive and well.
Anyone who is still swallowing ANY of this mueller time bull# isn't watching their diet very closely, IMO. We're on our own now. No "justice" department. No balance of powers. No Constitution.
Stop chewing and spit it out. We have to make our leaders do what we elected them to do - not allow another repubican criminal (recent example; george w bush) to just get away with anything and everything as they forever alter the "precedents" we all used to consider laws.

Wow, folks Obama *really* dropped the ball on this one didn't he?
Why did he think a "stern talking to" and a warning to "knock it off" was an appropriate response?
What a castrado, low-IQ fool that Soetoro (err, Obama)

They specifically said the decision NOT to prosecute was NOT based on the DOJ's *opinion* that a sitting President can't be indicted.
