The Russian Hoax

So we have been hearing for a little over two years now that Trump colluded with Russia. That he stole the election from Hillary Clinton, that he accepted laundered money from Russian spies in the NRA to fund his campaign. That he does President Putin's deeds and that he is a Russian asset and a Putin puppet. We have heard this from the media, our representatives, and most of the Democratic party. So it has to be true right, there is "mountains" of evidence its everywhere, its obvious, they all said. Well guess what, on Friday March 22nd, the Mueller investigation has come to an end. No collusion, Robert Mueller did not recommend any further indictments. The President did not collude with Russia to win the 2016 election. So you would think everybody from both sides of the political ideologies would be happy to know their president is not a Russian asset right? Wrong, from the left all we are hearing is more hate and some skepticism. Which is all fine if they had not lied about the amount of evidence for 2 years and continuously pushed this story to try and manipulate the American voters. They wont apologize for it either they will just find another way to spin the story and not accept the facts that they say they are 100% about.

Democrats Only Takeaway

The only part of the summary CNN & MSNBC have been pushing

The Summary of the Report

Shortly after Mueller released his report to Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Barr released a summary of the report. In the summary Barr stated that in the question of Collusion with Russia to hack the Presidential Election in 2016 there was no evidence of Trump or anyone related to Trump colluding. He also states that in the question of Obstruction of Justice there is not enough evidence to indict the president, but this "does not exonerate him". This is what we are seeing from the media right now is that line and that line only, at least from CNN and MSNBC. That one single line in the 4 page summary, they do not care about the no collusion, they are now after the obstruction. Even nitpicking the president after he said he was fully exonerated, people took to twitter and tweeted back to him saying he wasn't. He was however, he did not do the crime that is in question and the only reason obstruction of justice would be a charge is if there was any justice to obstruct. The thought of people taking this as a win for the destruction of Trump is asinine, they are only using it and saying it on the media to cover their butts on the 2 year lie they have been spewing.

Democrats are saying that maybe Mueller was compromised or Trump paid him off, they are saying Barr is lying and is hiding something because the full report hasn't been released. People are demanding that the full Mueller report gets released and yelling at the president to do it, one problem with that though, he already said he wants the whole thing released! If you read the last couple paragraphs in the summary it states "Based on my discussions with the Special Counsel and my review, it is apparent that the report contains material that is or could be subjects to Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 6(e), which imposes restrictions on the use and disclosure of information relating to "matter[s] occurring before [a} grand jury"" So why are people so angry and demanding? Well in reality the full report word by word probably wont be released due to some confidentiality, but most of it will be viewed by the public and everyone just needs to calm down.

The truth is Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election, fair and square. Trump did not collude with Russia and most people knew that, even Democrats. What people need to do now is come together and figure out what the actual divide of the country is instead of hating a president that has done a great job despite all the hateful rhetoric, and lies from the media. It wont happen though, the media and Democrats will double down, and I'll tell you right now it is a horrible decision for them. They do not have much leeway to run on and pretending none of this happened is not a good thing to bank on.

Gen. Barr's Summary of the Mueller Report

What Should the Media Do?

So what should the media do? Well for starters all those who pushed the narrative saying that the Russian investigation was based on heavy evidence (that started from a fake dossier) should apologize to President Trump, his family, and the American people. I do not think that the Republican party absolutely needs an apology, we already knew that this was a hoax and it was used to try to defame the winner of the 2016 presidential election. Who the apology should really go out to is the viewers of the left wing media who have been constantly attacking Trump supporters and Republicans on the bases of allegations of the Russian hoax. They faked a dossier, they told us multiple time he colluded they even went as far as to say Trump and Republicans are Putin's assets and their party and their viewers believed it. The media most likely knew it was fake too, they just lied so many times they started believing it themselves. They need to apologize to their viewers and to Donald Trump and his family. We will not see that though, we already have people on CNN saying "We are not investigators, we are journalists and we did our job in reporting the facts." What facts did they report because as we have come to realize there has been no collusion or obstruction and they were saying that its a fact that there was.

So do not fall for it, there was no facts, it was all fake it was all a smear campaign and most people knew it. We have seen over this entire presidency the lefts goal of smearing Republicans and trying to defame them. This is over now, they say we are not going to drop the Mueller report coming up with nothing and we should. We shouldn't because they couldn't stop reporting nonfactual things about it for over 2 years and wasted their time reporting on that rather then telling their viewers what this administration is accomplishing. So what next, what is going to be the new story the left will push? Well they are probably going to go back to the children in cages and trying to say Republicans are all racist. They will not apologize and I think many of them should get fired. Mainly Don Lemon, who has constantly calling out the president on false pretenses numerous times. We as a country should not stand for this and we should not let it just go away. We must get rid of the tyrants that lie to us because there is always a reason and alternate intentions to do so, although we may not know what they are.

      I wrote this for an answer to a anti Trumper.

      "I have the answer why Mueller didn't even try to decide about obstruction charges

      I have the answer why Mueller didn't even try to decide about obstruction charges against president Trump.

      First, he had no evidence, certainly no evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt.

      2nd, because he couldn't indict president Trump for the obstruction he would leave it to Barr the AG to determine whether any crimes were committed by president Trump. And that part is in the memo.

      3rd, the would continue the democrat hype that Barr would let Trump off the hook, This would enable people like Mike, Scott, and Perry to continue to say that Barr wasn't neutral and that is why Trump picked him. They could then continue to do this all the way up to the 2020 election, and even after it when they lose again.

      This whole investigation served the purpose of the democrats to influence the 2018, and even the 2020 elections.

      4th Mueller should have never accepted the appointment as special counsel, because of conflict of interest. That conflict came when president Trump rejected Mueller for his old job as FBI director.

      Then Mueller and Comey conspired to get president Trump when they met shortly before Comey was to testify before congress. The conspiracy was to get congress to appoint a special counsel to investigate president Trump.

      And another conflict of interest existed for Rod Rosenstein because he is the one that actually fired Comey. But the left is OK with that because only conflicts or bias that is against their interests is bad.

      It is clear that Mueller came up empty on all things Trump.

      "Brad: From Barr's Summary, Please read the last sentence in the last paragraph. Trump is lying again.

      ----------------------------------------------

      Obstruction of Justice.

      The report's second part addresses a number of actions by the President – most of which have been the subject of public reporting – that the Special Counsel investigated as potentially raising obstruction-of-justice concerns. After making a “thorough factual investigation” into these matters, the Special Counsel considered whether to evaluate the conduct under Department standards governing prosecution and declination decisions but ultimately determined not to make a traditional prosecutorial judgment. The Special Counsel therefore did not draw a conclusion - one way or the other – as to whether the examined conduct constituted obstruction. Instead, for each of the relevant actions investigated, the report sets out evidence on both sides of the question and leaves unresolved what the Special Counsel views as “difficult issues” of law and fact concerning whether the President's actions and intent could be viewed as obstruction. The Special Counsel states that “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”

      ---------------------------------------------

      B:

      To obtain and sustain an obstruction conviction, the government would need to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a person, acting with corrupt intent, engaged in obstructive conduct with sufficient nexus to a pending or contemplated proceeding. In cataloguing the President's actions, many of which took place in public view, the report identifies NO actions that, in our judgement, constitute obstructive conduct, had a nexus to a pending or contemplated proceeding, and were done with corrupt intent, each of which, under the Department's principles of federal prosecution guiding charging decisions, would need to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt to establish an obstruction-of-justice offense.

      -----------------------------

      B:

      The statement by Mueller that he decided to just give both sides and leave it to the AG to decide if there was a crime. Is Mueller's failure to find evidence that can be found beyond a reasonable doubt.

      If he couldn't find that evidence with 19 attorneys, 40 FBI agents, intelligence analysts, forensic accountants, and other professional staff.

      2800 subpoenas

      nearly 500 search warrants

      230 orders for communication records,

      almost 50 order authorizing use of pen registers

      13 requests to foreign govt for evidence

      nearly 500 witnesses were interviewed

      That is an exoneration and compare that with Comey exonerating Hillary Clinton. If you believe that Hillary was exonerated, then why don't you believe Trump?

      ------------------------------------

      B:

      Remember that Barr was summarizing what Mueller wrote, but if he didn't indict and convict he failed to make a case. His opinion is not the same as a court of law.

      Mueller was your guy, and he failed because there were no crimes by Trump.

      And what he did by keeping his investigation going till and through the mid term election was an influence on the election in favor of the left. And by you and the left continuing on with this baseless accusation are just trying to keep that influence going to the 2020 presidential election. It was just like the Judge Kavanaugh multiple investigations that didn't show any crime was committed, yet it delay the hearing, and impugned the president before the 2018 mid term elections. We didn't need the Russians when we have the democrats to influence our elections.

      Mueller also broke the confidentiality of the lawyer client which was the strongest of the protected confidences. So, now when anyone confides in their lawyer, they can't be sure if the government won't disregard it.

      B:

      Mueller and Comey should be investigated for conspiracy. They met before Comey was to go before congress, and president Trump had rejected Mueller for his old FBI director job. That should have been enough of a conflict of interest to have made Mueller decline. And it was part of what he and Comey discussed before Comey went before congress.

      B:

      Rod Rosenstein is the one that fired Comey, maybe he should be investigated as well as a co-conspirator. These are no more far out that what Trump was being investigated by Mueller.

      Mueller spent more than $30 million of our money for this politically motivated investigation that ended in Trump's exoneration, while it gave the democrats a political influence in the election."

      The cap of 1250 is just a recommendation.

      You might consider looking at the Mueller Investigation as itself and influence on the 2018 election.

      That would make it ironic that the Mueller investigation looking into the Russian Trump influence is actually being used to influence the 2018 election. And by the rejection by the democrats not to exonerate Trump entirely, it will be used to influence the 2020 election.

      Who needs the Russians when the democrats are so much better influencing elections.

      Thanks

      Brad excellent points, I usually talk about how asinine it is that Trump colluded with Russia and only won the electoral college it seemed like a fluke to start out with, I wish I had thought a bit more for this article and would have taken my time so I could have more of those points in there, but due to relavence at the time I wanted to get something out very quickly and I was at 1200 words and j think there is a 1250 cap. Thank you for your feedback

      Excellent article and summary of the Mueller report controversy.

      I would like to add, that in my opinion the point of the Russia Trump investigations. 4 congressional, and whatever Mueller was doing concluded with a finding of NO evidence.

      What the Mueller report also didn't do is bring out what Russia was doing in the alleged Russia Trump collusion. If Russia was going to help Trump win, then what did they do for him to win the primary. I he didn't win the primary, he wouldn't have been running for the presidency.

      How would the Mueller report explain how influencing the election for Trump resulted in Hillary Clinton receiving 3 million more votes than Trump.

      The Russian allegation of influencing the election was from Hillary and the DNC because these accused the Russians of hacking. Then when she lost to Trump she tagged Trump and conflated it with the alleged Russian hacking. Then she put her Russian Dossier to season the mix.

      The real reason that the left is still moving with the attacking president Trump notwithstanding the finding from the Mueller report of total exoneration is ironically they made their resistance of president Trump into their own way to influence the 2018 election. The started their resistance the day after Hillary lost, and they will continue till the 2020 election. That is the democrat plan to take the White House and maybe all of congress.

      Unfortunately, president Trump and a few republicans are the only ones in the republican party that have any fight in them. The rest of the republican are gentlemen, and emphasis on gentle, while the democrats are street fighters, and sucker punchers. They have only one rule, win by any means.

      As for the question of Obstruction of Justice there is not enough evidence to indict the president, but this "does not exonerate him".

      These words are propaganda, and they are legally meaningless. As I said after 5 investigations there hasn't been found any evidence to support any wrong doing by Trump. And that no evidence finding is the definition of exoneration which is to be free from blame.

      Mueller didn't recommend any indictments, he didn't find any wrong doing, and by his wording he is playing to the democrats. Why, because he failed, and he needed to justify his failure.

      Again, the real worth of Mueller was for the democrats to keep this cloud of criminality over Trump and the republican party so that the democrats have something to lure the voters to them.

      It is not like they have any political platform, much less on one that the democrats agree. We are not Trump, Trump is bad president, and so it continues.

      Thanks for the article.
