“I can confirm that we’ve transported one patient with burns from the Ellipse and we’re now on the scene assisting law enforcement,” a spokesman for the D.C. Fire Department told CNBC.
The incident occurred just after Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III announced that his office was closing shop and that he was retiring from the Department of Justice.
Big League Politics reported:
FBI spook Robert Mueller closed up his “nothing burger” today, formally ending his special counsel, and resigning from the Department of Justice during a brief 10-minute press conferencein front of reporters in Washington D.C.
“I’m speaking out today because our investigation is complete,” Mueller said. “The Attorney General has made the report on our investigation largely public. We are formally closing the special counsel’s office, and as well, I am resigning from the Department of Justice to return to private life.”
Mueller noted that “it is important for the office’s written work to speak for itself.”
He noted that Russians did use sophisticated attacks on our electoral infrastructure, crediting them with giving information to WikiLeaks, and damaging the candidacy of a particular presidential candidate – obviously referring to Hillary Clinton. He also credited some social media posts by Russians for influencing the election.
Mueller talked about obstruction as well, giving a vague diatribe against obstruction but not implicating Trump or anyone close to him as being guilty of the crime.
“We did not… make a determination as to whether the President did commit a crime,” Mueller said.
He noted that charging the President for a criminal act was “not an option we could consider.”

President Trump: Best Pro-Life President Ever?
Karen Cross, the Political Director for National Right to Life, praised President Donald Trump for his pro-life efforts during his administration.
At Life News, she wrote “President Donald J. Trump and his Administration have established more pro-life policies than any other president in history.
The National Right to Life Committee endorsed president Trump’s re-election bid on July 4, 2019.
That day, Carol Tobias, the president of National Right to Life, said:
“As our nation celebrates Independence Day, we are proud to endorse the only presidential candidate who stands for the unalienable right to life. From his first day in office, President Trump and his Administration have been dedicated to advancing policies that protect the fundamental right to life for the unborn, the elderly, and the medically dependent and disabled.”
One of the Trump administration’s first actions as president was to restore the Mexico City Policy, which bars tax funds from going to organizations that carry out abortions or lobby to bring pro-abortion laws to host countries. Trump followed up by expanding this policy to keep $9 billion in foreign aid from being used to bankroll the global abortion industry.
The Trump Administration also slashed funding to the United Nations Population Fund due to that agency’s involvement with China’s forced abortion program.
President Trump originally pledged “to veto any legislation that weakens current pro-life federal policies and laws, or that encourages the destruction of innocent human life at any state.”
According to Cross, President Trump vowed to sign the following pro-life legislative items:
- The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act;
- The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act; and
- The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.
The National Right to Life Political Director emphasized the importance of the 2020 elections. She stated that this election “will determine who appoints justices to the U.S. Supreme Court and numerous federal judges to lower courts.”
Having Republican control of the Senate will allow Trump to continue to nominate conservative judges.
So far, Trump has nominated 192 federal judges, which include U.S. Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, who were ultimately confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
Having Nancy Pelosi out of the picture as House Speaker will allow for pro-life legislation to actually move out of the House.
All in all, pro-lifers’ best bet for any type of policy change will be for Republicans to gain control of all three branches of government.
