Attorney General William Barr wrote in letter to lawmakers on Sunday that the Special Counsel had found no evidence of President Trump colluding with Russia to influence the election. And although he made no determination about the supposed obstruction of justice claims, he did strongly state that the president had been vindicated by Robert Mueller’s hit squad.
Many people argue that the entire Mueller investigation was simply a cover up of the crimes committed by Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and the elitist deep state players.
They were disgusted and frantic over an outsider like Donald Trump at the helm, and spent the last two years simultaneously blaming President Trump for crimes they committed, while they destroyed evidence and shifted the focus away from the horrible, and some claim, treasonous actions of the former administration.
“The Special Counsel’s investigation did not 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,” Barr said in the four-page letter describing the conclusions of Mueller’s nearly two-year investigation.
In fact, the Special Counsel determined that the campaign “did not conspire or knowingly coordinate with the Internet Research Agency to conduct disinformation and social media campaigns to sow discord and interfere in the election nor did it conspire or coordinate with the Russian government during efforts to hack Democrats,” despite offers to do that very thing.
The special counsel provided the only sop it could to democrats when it stated, “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”
Barr revealed that he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein have found that there is not “sufficient” evidence for that claim.
“After reviewing the Special Counsel’s final report on these issues; consulting with Department officials, including the Office of Legal Counsel; and applying the principles of federal prosecution that guide our charging decisions, 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,” Barr wrote.
The White House immediately announced the results:
“The Special Counsel did not find any collusion and did not find any obstruction. AG Barr and DAG Rosenstein further determined there was no obstruction. The findings of the Department of Justice are a total and complete exoneration of the President of the United States,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.
Even the Boston Herald admitted that Sanders spoke the truth, and argued that these drity FBI and DOJ officials should be investigated for the attempted soft coup.
Kurt Schlichter commented splendidly on the entire fiasco in an editorial:
It’s important to remember exactly what nonsense the elite liars were trying to stuff down our throats, because in the aftermath of their humiliation they are busy trying to hide it via their goalpost-shifting three card monte act. Behold their original assertion:
Donald Trump was a willing agent of Vladimir Putin actively acting in concert with Russia to betray the United States and steal the election!
Why? Because the dumpster fire ruling class they represent was outraged that we, the People, rejected its divine right to govern us when we chose a brash, pugnacious outsider over their designated monarch to-be, Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit.
This sham investigation was not anything like the administration of justice. It was part of, as people say but we’ve stopped being shocked when we hear it, a soft coup.
It was a deliberate attempt by the powerful to use the levers of government to eliminate a threat to the ruling class’s hold on political power by manufacturing a false narrative with the active assistance of those in government and media whose whole job is to prevent these sorts of fascist shenanigans.
The damage to our country is hard to calculate right now. It will take a while to fully appreciate how this betrayal by our alleged betters has undermined the foundations of our Republic.
But the signs are ominous. Normal people, those of us who build, feed, fuel and defend this country, have been awakened to the utterly incompetent and thoroughly venal nature of what Instapundit Glenn Reynolds correctly identifies as the U.S. franchise of a useless trans-national elite that prioritizes its own power and perks over the welfare of those is purportedly serves.
We’re woke now. We see that the people we’ve been electing – the people they allow us to elect – are really all the same. Only the labels are different, but the objective – their own money and influence – is identical.
Except for Trump, who neither respects the elite nor plays by its shabby rules. And that’s why they threw away any pretense of honesty, integrity or respect for the rule of law to drive him out of the Oval Office they covet.
And what collusion crimes did Mueller uncover? None. This was such nonsense that his pack of Democrats couldn’t even manage to frame anyone near Trump for Russia stuff. But they had their man so they found some crimes, or what are more or less crimes, among his associates.
Manafort was dirty long before Trump morphed from punchline to president, but does anyone imagine he would have been jammed up if had not dared cavort with the unapproved POTUS? In fact, the feds had looked at Manafort before all this and given him a pass.
Yet now he’s doing hard time while his Democrat partners are uncharged and free as birds, enjoying their plunder. Is that justice?
General Mike Flynn got arm-twisted into pleading to lying even though the FBI agents who talked to him said he wasn’t lying while the Three Stooges Brennan, Clapper and Comey lied their lizard hearts out to Congress and … nothing.
What about Felonia? Everyone knows that anyone of us doing a tenth of what that Looming Doofus Comey said she did right before he gave her a pass would still be making large rocks into small ones. Oh, and now Americans can rest easy knowing that our government is ready to face the menace of a PJ-clad Roger Stone with its SWAT teams.
Congrats. This whole fiasco has convinced Americans that there are two sets of rules in America, one for the elite and one for us, and that the justice system is just a scam designed to help the elite hold onto power by punishing those who would challenge its rule.
That’s poison to a free country, which is probably okay with our scuzzy elite since it does not actually want a free country. It wants a happy-face dictatorship, and it wants to do the dictating.
So, what next? What do we do?
Mr. President, pardon the people who are collateral damage to this witch hunt. Pardon General Flynn and Roger Stone and George Papaplatypus. Manafort?
Commute his sentence to one consistent with the sentences given others of the elite guilty of similar crimes – which effectively means commute his sentence to nothing. There cannot be two sets of rules. They must apply equally to everyone or no one.
Next, order Attorney General Barr to clean house at the DoJ. Fire anyone associated with any of these antics. Then direct an investigation of the investigations – another special prosecutor, this one not bestest buddies with the guys he’s investigating.
If we want the rule of law, we need to enforce the law and do it without the elite shoving manifest conflicts of interest in our faces.
Next, order Barr to sue the state of New York to enjoin the threats by its ridiculous AG of bogus investigations not based on actual crimes but on purely vindictive politics.
We cannot have a system where an out-of-control leftist prosecutor in some moral backwater like New York City can prevent the elected POTUS from doing his job by tying him down with endless, aimless fishing expeditions without any probable cause of a crime.
And if this attempted coup, with our elite running roughshod over the rule of law and using the force of the government to oppress political opponents, has taught us anything, it is the wisdom of the Founders in enshrining the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights.
It is absolutely essential that we, the American citizenry, remain armed and ready to protect ourselves, our families, our communities and our Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic.
Our elite has demonstrated beyond any doubt that it is morally unworthy of retaining a monopoly on armed force within our society. Do you have any doubt about what these people would do if we foolishly allowed ourselves to be disarmed?
Just look at Britain, where the people bought into the lie that being civilized means being defenseless. They now get arrested for mean tweets and their masters are poised to ignore the people’s vote on the Brexit referendum. Buy guns and ammunition and train with them. Be a citizen, not a subject.
The Mueller report marks the proverbial end of the beginning, not the beginning of the end, of this grave crisis. It’s a crisis where our Republic is in danger of becoming something very different, and something very much less free.
Eliminating the Electoral College, letting in millions of illegal aliens, packing SCOTUS, banning guns – these are all leftist policies designed with one singular purpose, to dispossess you of the power to participate in your own governance and to ensure that we can never again elect someone like Trump who might challenge the elite’s stranglehold on control. We won this battle, but there is a long campaign ahead.
Get ready, because if we let up then we will lose our liberty forever.
Many people agree.
It’s time for real indictments against the people who attempted to take control away from the American people.
It’s time that these unelected masters are held accountable for their criminal activity.
