    Dershowitz says that collusion is not a crime. :)

    It isn't by itself. Even if Mueller WAS running his investigation(his democrat Hillary supporting lawyers did instead), his job description doesn't give him the power to exonerate or not exonerate anything either. Looks like 'Nadler's'(pus ball on a Gonad) little trick hearing blew up in his stupid face, huh. Very telling.

    Southwest being an "All Boeing 737" airline must be getting something under the table from Muilenburge. "Collusion" may not be a crime, thank you for clarifying that Mr. Mueller for us layman. They should turn to the show "Law and Order" (the original one) for inspiration. Executive Assistant District Attorney Jack McCoy's character who always uses "Conspiracy" in way to drum up an indictment. Was Boeing and Southwest involved in a Conspiracy to defraud the public and it's employees?

    The FAA is gun shy. It appears no one wants to make a decision!

    ......Like imagine if some FAA manager signed off on returning the MAX to service and production and then another foreign operator dumps one!

    I don’t blame the MAX design completely on the crashes. It is common knowledge that some foreign operators have poor training and over work their pilots.

    BTW it is costing Boeing some where around 100,000,000 a month with the MAX grounded. There were approximately 350 in service.

    If the FAA doesn’t to move on the MAX, I think it could bring Boeing down!

    A shame!!! a real shame!!

    Btw, I forgot. Clinton lied to Dershowitz and Dershowitz BELIEVES him! The manifest filled out by the pilots of the 'Lolita Express' 727 show Slick Willie was on that plane to Epstein's Little St. James Island(Pedo Island) up to 46 times!(6 times after dumping his S.S. detail) Slick Willie said the other day that he didn't know Epstein. RIIIIGHT. They just found some W.H. visitor records(W.H. logs) stashed away that showed Epstein was on the official(undisputed) W.H. visitor list back when Slick Willie was POTUS in 1993. Here's some points to ponder as well.

    We would hope so, but the 797 program seems to be on shaky ground right now. I see where United is contemplating separating from the NMA, because Boeing can’t make up their mind on it. If that happens, that may end the NMA program. :eek:
