It seems that the whole country should be delighted to have verified proof that an American President and his staff did not collude in any way with the Russians, and in fact with any other foreign entity to tamper or fix the last election. This is more than we can say about any other politician. There is now overwhelming proof through two years of special counsel investigative effort by Robert Mueller and a team of 19 FBI investigators. Not only is this good news for the American voter, but it assures us that the president Trump is in fact the legitimate office holder.
Unfortunately, many people, and of course those on the political Left, i.e.; Democrats and their loyal far-left stalwarts, the mainstream media, Establishment Republicans, and NeverTrumpers…now really all one-in-the-same say, just because he is not guilty, it doesn’t prove that he is innocent. Such an idea undermines the entire U.S. judicial system that holds that you are innocent until proven guilty. Undermining both the executive and the judicial branches is treasonous, and we should have nothing to do with this.
And with that, what about interfering with the investigation? The facts are the same. There is no proof of criminal interference on any account, nor that Donald Trump either as candidate, as president-elect, or as president was involved at – zip, zero, nada as Rush Limbaugh would say … he is innocent on that premise too.
Did the media, both political parties, yes, all legislative members, and the rich and powerful try to influence the Democrats and Republicans, outcome? Of course, they did. In fact, we all did, using whatever tiny bit of political influence and persuasion we have to try to influence family members, friends, and colleagues on the job … in any way we could.
That is part of our American political process. Remember with regard to the fourth estate, with reason for that — ‘only the media should have not been part of this.’ Unfortunately, they failed and did so miserably…once again. Should Soros, Pelosi, and Schiff go to jail? Of course not, unless they are found to have abused their positions and the legal and professional privileges afforded them. Are they considered trustworthy by most Americans? Of course not. There are legal mechanisms to address their shortcoming, be it unlawful acts ranging from financial improprieties, violations of their oath, sedition and treason. And there is the ballot box.
And what about the far-left media? Should CNN, MSNBC, the NY Times, etc.? Should they be yanked from the airwaves? Well that’s up to their viewers and advertisers through changing the channels, letters and of course boycotts by all. Or from a legal standpoint, unless they are subject to FCC violations as part of their effort to conduct a contrived smear campaign to destroy a sitting president. That of course, would involve an investigation. That said, let’s be clear– the media ‘should not and must not’ be biased and for the last two-years, “the mainstream media” emphatically and whole-heatedly lied about the facts and deliberately in a desperate effort to intentionally fool the American people. Yes, they should be and need to be held accountable, especially by the liberals and the progressives who were taken for a ride, of course through their own ignorance and hate-bias for President Trump. They have damaged the country for these last two years and they cannot take it back, even if they want to. And you know they will come up with more lies to get their desired outcome.
The indoctrinated and brainwashed political-left will continue to investigate for evidence, by the likes of ‘Russia on the Brain’ Eric Swalwell, Pencil-neck Schiff for Brains Adam Schiff, and ‘No Brain’ Jerrold Nadler.
They will continue to use unsubstantiated facts, innuendo, and rumors of suggestion. Unfortunately, there just isn’t any evidence. Do you think that a Congressman will come up with something that 40 federal agents, issued 2,800 subpoenas, 500 search warrants, and questioned 500 witnesses as part of its investigation into allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 campaign, could not discover in two-years?
In the meantime, the rest of the clear-thinking country will wonder how we got to this point and will ponder what other lies they are being fed. They will yearn to get closure and will press Congress to investigate why the effort to sow discord in our election by the Russians was aided by the FBI, other political parties, and members of Congress, the media, and other countries. As a country, we need to get clear of these scandals, hence, partisan “witch-hunts” as the President calls them and discord, and yes they’re a rally calls by the Democrats. As a nation, we must move on and come together as one united country. We will probably have to wait for this to occur until President Trump gets re-elected for his second term.
If we have been lied to about the president for over the last two-years, it makes one wonder what other lies we have been told by the media. We have heard that the president is prejudiced against Hispanics and that walls don’t work. Of course they work, otherwise, they wouldn’t exist. Will they stop all immigration problems? No, but they will stop one, people coming across the border, drugs and human trafficking, criminal activity and violent gangs, terrorists and undesirables – all of which the Democrats could for the most part really give-a-shit about. Will they make it safer for Hispanics already here or coming? Of course. Fewer rapes and murders, fewer drugs, and gang activity for Hispanics and for the rest of us. Sanctuary cities are a crime against Hispanics and legal havens for crime, and are another horrific lie used by the Democrats and political-left.
And what about other minorities? The abundance of jobs has helped minorities leave the poverty of ‘socialist plantations.’ Imposing tariffs seemed to be a bad idea, but even this appears to be turning things around. We cannot be for all the president’s ideas, but we don’t have to be working to make them fail. Let’s see if he can be successful in the next two years. If he can, great. We will all be better off. If he can’t, he can always be replaced, and his failure will not be because we resisted him. All this bigotry needs to stop.
With everything said on both sides of the aisle, aside from the politics and more so aside from partisan political bias, legal experts call the conclusion of the Mueller Report a “vindication” of President Donald Trump of the charge of colluding with Russia, and the president has made it clear he agrees. It also, established there was essentially, based on the evidence that there was no indication of obstruction.
Mueller’s special counsel did not find that the Trump campaign, or anyone associated with it, conspired or coordinated with the Russian government. Period. Attorney General William Barr said in a four-page letter to Congress summarizing the Mueller report states: “The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”
Constitutional law experts have pointed out the language of the Mueller report, says the Trump campaign did not “conspire” or “coordinate” with the Russian government “despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign.”
Legally, this likely means that the Trump campaign did not seek Russian help, and also that they rejected and/or ignored any overtures of Russian help. I should also note that this essentially wrecks any claim of ‘collusion,’ which is not a crime in the first place.
Likewise, President Trump’s former attorney Ty Cobb reminds us that the special counsel was able to conduct a far more extensive investigation than a typical prosecutor which, he argues, makes the decision to exonerate President Trump on collusion and issued no further indictments against any other criminal activity or suspected criminal concerns. Again, it should be further noted, the special counsel employed 40 federal agents, issued 2,800 subpoenas, 500 search warrants, and questioned 500 witnesses as part of its investigation into allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 campaign.
Let me conclude with the fact that with all the tools afforded to the special counsel — this investigation was done in such an in-depth and thorough way, that no one can deny otherwise.
Nevertheless, as is always the case, the Democrats and the political-left, with the tied-at-the-hip mainstream media, have moved the goalposts on the original subject of investigation. The finding of no collusion is the reason why House Intelligence Committee Chairman, Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) has ‘shifted’ –no pun intended — from ‘collusion’ and instead now keeps using the phrase ‘foreign compromise.’ It seems to be another one of those vaguely crime-sounding terms. At the same time, is there a hint of a vengeance campaign, you can be assured I am looking at that closely – essentially vindication and vengeance to counter what the Democrats might be prepared to through at him in the remaining second half of his first term leading up to 2020.
That said, understand, the Democrats are now arguing from the belief that Mueller explicitly declined to come to a final conclusion on the issue of ‘obstruction of justice.’ However, again legal analysts and experts all say, President Trump won on that question, too. In fact Barr, in conjunction with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, says there is “not sufficient” evidence to charge President Trump with obstruction. In making this determination, Barr noted that the special counsel recognized that ‘the evidence does not establish that the President was involved in an underlying crime related to Russian election interference,’ and that, while not determinative, the absence of such evidence bears upon the President’s intent with respect to obstruction. Hence, this is a “total victory” for President Trump.
Not only was there no collusion, there was also no obstruction of justice according to Barr. For his part, President Trump has no complaints. After Barr’s letter was released, the president tweeted: “No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!”
