OK so the Mueller report says there was no collusion between any Americans and the Russians trying to mess with the election. This reinforces the similar conclusion from the Senate’s investigation. According to people who are willing to listen to investigators on both sides of the political aisle:
any evidence that the Trump campaign was conspiring with Russian agents to interfere with the 2016 election. There was never any evidence of it.
. . . except for the Steele dossier. The Steele dossier, which was paid for by Clinton dollars and was full of literally false information. Including known lies and a prank from 4chan idiots involving prostitutes and urine. It was known by the FBI to be Clinton opposition research FAKE stories, the dossier. Some people in the FBI tried to warn other people in the FBI that it was fake and they should be careful with it. What did they do? they lied to the FISC to get their warrant, and lied again to renew it three times.
So we are interested in the truth, yes? We are willing to spend ten-millions of dollars and employ dozens of people for years to find the truth, yes? We don’t want criminal activity to go unpunished, n’est-ce pas? If that is the case then the question should now properly shift to: why was this done?
Some of us have a pretty good idea of why. But you’ll want me to take off my tinfoil hat before telling you. It will sound like madness today. Let the investigation be concluded and then you will find yourself so shocked at the depth and malignity of this scandal that you will hardly believe it could be real.
So now the press corps will shift to mention of Obstruction of Justice by Don John Trump. I will only remind you of the requirements for a case of obstruction of justice:
- There must have been a crime under investigation
- The investigation/trial process must have been obstructed somehow, or with corrupt intent someone intended to obstruct the process.
Donald Trump did not collluuuuuuuude with muhRussians to mess around in the election. There was never a crime and everyone in the investigation knew that. SO there cannot have been obstruction of justice. Donald Trump actually took no action to impede the investigation (contrariwise, he co-operated (!) as stated by Messrs Mueller and Barr). SO there cannot have been obstruction of justice. The President is the absolute boss of the Department of Justice. He could literally have fired everyone and stopped the investigation. He could have insisted his underlings stop or actually impede the investigation in various ways, and he never did. The absolute worst you find in the Mueller report is that he was frustrated and wanted the investigation to stop but utterly failed to stop the investigation. If words mean anything, then there was no obstruction of Justice by D.J.Trump.
Judge the quality of your chosen source of news accordingly.
