Democrats have spent the last two years using their “Russia collusion” subterfuge to undermine real progress for all Americans — and will spend the next two years doing the same thing.
“It has been a source of great pain to me to have met with so many among [my] opponents who had not the liberality to distinguish between political and social opposition; who transferred at once to the person, the hatred they bore to his political opinions.” —Thomas Jefferson (1808)
The Mueller v Trump charade may have concluded, but the Democrats v America charade remains in full swing.
Most Americans want political leadership that is, first and foremost, dedicated to promoting a domestic agenda that is good and right for our nation. On a personal level, we want safe communities to raise our families, good jobs that provide income so we can afford to support our families, and a sense of security about our future and that of our nation.
Those of us who are military families have more at stake. Democrats constantly endeavor to undermine the president’s foreign-policy agenda by undermining his office. At a time when Donald Trump is dealing with critical national-security issues, some of which have been neglected for decades including the crisis on our southern border, that endangers our military personnel.
Democrats often repeat the mantra that they are doing “the work of the American people.” But all they have to offer is their vitriolic “Hate Trump” platform that feeds the anger and fear of their increasingly deranged constituents.
Donald Trump has genuinely endeavored to make America a better country for all of its citizens — and in many respects has accomplished that despite that Democrats’ best efforts to obstruct that agenda.
But Democrats have spent the last two years using their “Russia collusion” subterfuge to undermine progress for all Americans — because that progress threatens their power. They will spend the next two years doing the same thing.
To that end, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), along with her House tag team of Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and Intel Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), are desperate to keep their collusion/obstruction narrative alive.
Last Thursday, Attorney General William Barr delivered his remarks ahead of the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s lightly redacted 448-page report — the findings of his 675-day, $35 million investigation into alleged collusion between Donald Trump and Russia in order to influence the 2016 election.
The origins of those allegations were fabricated in a fake dossier funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and her Democrat Party cronies. It was then used by Barack Obama’s corrupt deep-state operatives in the FBI and CIA as the basis for a FISA warrant, which then allowed them to spy on the Trump campaign and ultimately to appoint a special prosecutor to “investigate” Donald Trump and his associates.
The purpose for setting up this two-year sham investigation served no other purpose than to obstruct Trump’s political agenda and potentially even find grounds for his removal from office. Arguably, this was the most dangerous and disgraceful episode in American political history.
The “bottom line,” according to Barr: “After nearly two years of investigation, thousands of subpoenas, and hundreds of warrants and witness interviews, the special counsel confirmed that the Russian government sponsored efforts to illegally interfere with the 2016 presidential election but did not find that the Trump campaign or other Americans colluded in those schemes.”
Three weeks ahead of the Mueller Report’s release, Barr provided an executive summary in which he concluded, “The Special Counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election.”
The full Mueller Report bears out that assessment. As former U.S. Attorney Andrew McCarthy declared, “It cleared the president of the vacant collusion allegation that Democrats peddled for two years.”
As Barr noted, “The White House fully cooperated with the special counsel’s investigation, providing unfettered access to campaign and White House documents, directing senior aides to testify freely… The president took no act that in fact deprived the special counsel of the documents and witnesses necessary to complete his investigation. … [Mueller’s] evidence of non-corrupt motives weighs heavily against any allegation that the president had a corrupt intent to obstruct the investigation.”
Barr’s summary also concluded that Trump, “in the interest of transparency and full disclosure,” did not assert executive privilege to withhold information from Mueller, although it would’ve been well within his rights to do so. And all redactions were done in accordance with Department of Justice protocols for protecting ongoing investigations and national-security sources and methods.
Does that sound like a president who’s trying to obstruct justice?
