There was never any evidence that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to steal the presidential election from Hillary Clinton. It was collusion with the other national political party to play a dirty political trick to steal the election from Donald Trump. The whole thing was based largely on a dossier fabricated from the imagination of an ex-British spy Christopher Steele; and Fusion GPS Founder, Glenn Simpson.
It was paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democrats National Committee and then sold all over Washington to naïve journalists, the FBI, the State Department and the Department of Justice. It spread like wildfire despite that there were no credible facts.
There was still nothing remotely plausible in May when fired FBI Director James Comey stole government documents and leaked them to the media for the sole purpose of prompting the appointment of a special counsel, Robert Mueller. The closed door testimony of Lisa Page and James Comey totally discounts the facts represented in those documents.
Now, after an comprehensive 22-month investigation, we have finally learned from the Attorney General, William Barr, that “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.”
To Democrats and most in the media such trivial things as true facts did not matter. They allowed their personal bias toward Trump to drive their actions. Their fanatical belief in a conspiracy with Putin consumed them. Their hatred for Trump and his policies drove them to make outlandish statements and actually promote the removal of a dually elected President.
.Democrats like Adam Schiff, Richard Blumenthal, Nancy Pelosi, and Maxine Waters, made outrageous statements without any proof that Trump “colluded” with Russia. They found him guilty without a trial or even any evidence.
Many journalists were equally reckless and spiteful. Most of them never bothered to examine the facts, the evidence and the law. Instead, they abandoned objectivity and suspended their duty of fairness. They allowed personal dislike to override their judgment and ethics.
Now they are all promoting “obstruction of justice” Mueller said that Trump never “colluded” with Russia, however he dodged the question on obstruction of justice. He abdicated his responsibility as the prosecutors whose job was to make that decision, but maybe the question is mute.
Attorney General Barr and his deputy Rod Rosenstein concluded that the evidence developed during the Special Counsel’s investigation was not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction of justice offense.”
That conclusion took the two top officials at the Department of Justice along with their legal staff and they reached a well-founded consensus that, under the law, President Trump never acted “with corrupt intent” to obstruct “a pending or contemplated proceeding.” They added, the obvious fact that you cannot have obstruction of justice if no crime was committed.
Look at all that Trump has achieved in the middle of all this chaos. Think what could have been accomplished if the Democrats would work together? Yet, no the blind hate goes on and on. Who suffers? America
