On Thursday morning, Attorney General Bill Barr seemed to use even stronger language than he a couple of weeks ago to ultimately express to the American people that President Trump was cleared of collusion allegations with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential election.

“The report details efforts by the Internet Research Agency, a Russian company with close ties to the Russian government, to sow social discord among American voters through disinformation and social media operations. Following a thorough investigation of this disinformation campaign, the Special Counsel brought charges in federal court against several Russian nationals and entities for their respective roles in this scheme.
Those charges remain pending, and the individual defendants remain at large,” Barr said (bolding is mine). “But the Special Counsel found no evidence that any Americans – including anyone associated with the Trump campaign – conspired or coordinated with the Russian government or the IRA in carrying out this illegal scheme.
Indeed, as the report states, ‘[t]he investigation did not identify evidence that any U.S. persons knowingly or intentionally coordinated with the IRA’s interference operation.’ Put another way, the Special Counsel found no “collusion” by any Americans in the IRA’s illegal activity.”
Remember this, after two years and over 30 million dollars, partisan hacks couldn’t find any evidence or manufacture any credible charge, yet Mueller still left room for Congressional morons to pursue impeachment by saying they couldn’t say Trump didn’t do it. To me, this is an admission by Mueller of how inadequate his investigative efforts were.
As I said last night on my radio show, this report is not going to change anybody’s mind. If you’re a “resistance” Hillary Clinton diehard, you already have your mind made after 2016. If you’re a “MAGA” diehard, you already knew he was innocent and didn’t need the report.
Sadly, facts don’t have as much sway as they used to.
Usually, when the subject of an investigation says its a witch hunt, I view that with suspicion. But throughout this whole process, not a single piece of evidence has been presented that would convince me. And yet, Democrats initiated how many articles of impeachment against him?
It’s frankly pathetic, and any elected person who tried to convince us he was guilty should issue an apology if they had any integrity at all.
Now the real investigation should begin. The administration can start with why they started an investigation with a document that was paid for by Hillary Clinton; How the FBI and DOJ handled the Hillary investigation questioning; The FBI and DOJ questionable actions toward then-candidate Donald Trump; How Hillary was cleared of criminal charges before the election while they were investigating Trump from the very evidence paid for by Hillary.
Why was Mueller given the job after he had talked with Trump about the FBI director’s job and was good friends with Comey? Why were so many investigators also Hillary campaign donors? Why the investigation was so one-sided. A complete, unredacted accounting of where and how the 25 million dollars was spent.
The problem is that a vast majority of Americans are clueless, get their news from the opposition media, and will lap up the nonsensical lies that they hear that will support the Dems continued fairytale scenarios and continued unwarranted pursuit of our president. We are in for frustrating long six more years.
