On Friday, March 22, 2019, the report from the Special Counsel Robert Mueller (Report on the Investigation into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election) was handed to Attorney General William Barr. Very few details of the content of the report were actually released to the media. Other than the fact that the report was completed the only detail that was released was that there were no further indictments recommended by Mueller. That was it, you could have heard that in a few seconds, but the media talked endlessly about a report, which they knew nothing about. Today (March 24, 2019) a 4 page summary of the report was released to the public by Attorney General William Barr. (Download the original document here.)
From the summary we now know that "a primary consideration for the Special Counsel's investigation was whether any Americans - including individuals associated with the Trump campaign - joined the Russian conspiracies to influence the election, which would be a federal crime."
It then says; "The Special Counsel's investigation DID NOT (my caps) find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. Presidential election."
The next paragraph names a Russian organization, the Internet Research Agency (IRA), as the organization which conducted a disinformation campaign on social media* "designed to sow discord, eventually with the aim of interfering with the election." On this accusation the Mueller report says "the Special Counsel DID NOT (my caps) find that any U.S. person or Trump campaign official or associate conspired or knowingly coordinated with the IRA in its efforts."
* In other words the Russians colluded with FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and maybe Google and others. This is of course the most despicable type of treachery, selling your country out for money.
This means that no American was involved, including any American who has been charged or has pled guilty to any crimes during this investigation. They pled guilty to crimes NOT associated with Russian interference in the election or President Trump. This includes Michael Flynn, Roger Stone, Paul Manafort and any other American. I name them only because these are names you might actually know.
There are two areas in the summary that the democrat party and the media will (and already have been) using to keep the kool-aid drinkers happy. On page 3 of the summary (Obstruction of Justice) Barr states that "the Special Counsel therefore did not draw a conclusion - one way or the other - as to whether the examined conduct constitutes obstruction." Furthermore; "The Special Counsel states that while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him." Barr surmises "Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and I have concluded that the evidence developed during the Special Counsel's investigation is not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense." In the next paragraph they explain their thought process and how they came to that conclusion. To boil it down, you can't obstruct justice to cover up a nonexistent crime.
The other area they will use is this line in the summary. "During the course of his investigation, the Special Counsel also referred several matters to other offices for further action." This is the only reference to any further investigations in the summary of the report. It does not indicate or imply that Trump is the subject of these "other matters," but it does not say he is not either. We don't know who they are referring to or what the crimes may be, this will come out in the fullness of time. It serves no purpose, other than to divide the country further, to speculate about them here.
I will not reprint the whole report here, you can just download it and read it yourself with the link above. I will however point out that there WAS collusion, not only in the 2016 election, but far beyond. The collusion of course was committed by the democrat party, all the lying democrat pundits and the left-wing media. They colluded against Trump and Republicans before the election and have continued to collude in the false story of Trump and Russia. Their collusion was to overturn the election, this is normally called a coup. In other countries they use guns to overthrow a president, here they use the media.
Now lets look at the reaction from the democrats and the media, who loved Mueller...until today.
Not one of the democrats running for president in 2020 have made a positive statement about the summary of the report. Elizabeth Warren, who lied for decades claiming she was a Native American tweeted (that is the first time I have ever used that word on this website) "Congress voted 420-0 to release the full Mueller report, not a summary from his (Trump's) handpicked Attorney General."
Kamala Harris said "a short letter from Trump's hand-picked Attorney General is not sufficient." I guess the word of the day for the democrats is "handpicked Attorney General." Perhaps I should note that ALL Attorney Generals are "hand-picked" by the President. They of course know this, it is just their way of downplaying the legitimacy of the summary. House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler also disparaged the A.G. in a press conference at 6:45 p.m. today (Mar. 24.) The coordinated attack on the A.G.'s credibility begins today.
Mr. Nadler also, during his press conference, in response to a question, said that the President or his people are lying about the summary. He also said "we should not be surprised that they lie anymore." Quite a statement from someone who has been lying since the day this all started. On one occasion Mr Nadler has said "well we KNOW there was collusion with people in the campaign." This is just one example, there are many more. So I say Mr. Nadler, show us your proof. There is no longer an investigation so you can't say that you can't release it, so lets see the proof. I make the same request of all the liars in the media and the democrat party, show us the proof you have been claiming that you have. You and the liars in the media have said over and over that you have proof, you KNOW he did it. As Mr. O'Rourke said just Saturday (the day after the Mueller report was released, but the day before the summary was released);
"You have a President, who in my opinion, BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT, sought to, however ham-handedly, collude with the Russian government, a foreign power, to undermine and influence our elections......
It is BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT, that once in office, the President of the United States sought to obstruct justice first, by firing the principal investigator into what had happened in the 2016 election and then in the light of day tweeting at the Attorney General to stop the Russia investigation. If that's not enough, do not take my word for it take conservative columnist George Will's word for it. If you're wondering about collusion, we saw the President of the United States, standing next to the leader of Russia on that stage in Helsinki, Finland, defending him and taking his word against out own intelligence community and our country, George Will's words not mine, that is collusion in action."
And this O'Rourke guy wants to be President. He alone has decided that Trump is guilty BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT. So with no information about the report (as I said earlier, no details about the report had been released on Mar. 22) and before the Barr summary was released on Mar. 24th, O'Rourke, on Mar. 23rd already KNEW the conclusion. Seems he was totally wrong, guess we don't need someone with judgment like that as president. A fair man or if not fair at least wise man, would have said I will wait for the report before I make a judgment, but not O'Rourke. He is neither fair or wise. Of course he was only speaking to what appeared to be a half full middle school gym so I guess even the people in that town were not overly interested in him.
So where do we go from here. I think the first thing we need is answers...answers from the media and the democrat party. Both of whom have for years said they had the proof, they knew Trump was guilty, his children were guilty, anyone who ever came in contact with his was guilty. So you can now show us the proof.
So I say to the liar, former CIA director John Brennan, show us your proof, to the liar former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, show us your proof. To the liar Adam Schiff (democrat Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee) show us your proof. To the liar Jerrold Nadler, show us your proof. To the liars at CNN like Lemon, Cooper and Cumo and the liars who join them on their shows, show us your proof. To the liars at MSNBC, ABC, NBC, New York Times, Washington Post and all other liberal media outlets, show us your proof. You and the likes of you are despicable liars. Unlike the kool-aid drinkers who watch and listen to you who want to be fooled, liars like you are dangerous and can not be trusted to deliver the news. I would ask everyone who watches or listens to you to stop doing so. Boycott these outlets as they are not purveyors of reliable news. They are nothing more than the propaganda arm of the democrat party. Of course this is no surprise, everybody knows this, that's just who they are.
Just remember everyone who you heard say we know there were crimes, we know there was collusion, we know there was treason, every one of them is a liar, a deliberate liar. Every one who said Trump will be charged, Trump's children will be charged, he will not finish his term, he will be impeached, they are all liars. They did not just make a mistake, because they have never provided one piece of evidence. Only opinion and lies. If the media had been fooled that would be one thing. I forgive mistakes in everyone. But they were not fooled, they did not ask for proof, they did not ever see any proof, they did not follow up when stories came out which showed there was no collusion, they did not make a mistake or error. They deliberately lied and allowed others to lie to you. There can really be no other conclusion, unless they are just too stupid to ask the right questions. I suppose that could be the answer, but I doubt it.
Oh yea, by the way, I used the words lie and liar because it is not perfectly acceptable to do so. Before Trump was elected there was an unwritten rule that you don't call politicians liars, the media and other politicians observed this on both sides. However, since Trump was elected they throw out the word liar every day, but look who was lying all this time.
