Collusion Delusion: A Review on the Mueller Report

After nearly 2 years, 2,800 subpoenas, 500 search warrants, Robert Mueller concluded that there was absolutely no Trump-Russia collusion during his campaign and he left Obstruction of Justice to be determined by both Attorney General Bill Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Mueller was appointed by Rosenstein in May of 2017 after President Trump fired FBI director James Comey. The background for the start of the investigation goes all the way back to the summer of 2016, when Christopher Steele, a British Spy, wrote “The Dossier”, a document which explained Trump’s ties to Russia and included material on Trump’s campaign coordinating with the Russians to get “dirt” on then-candidate Hillary Clinton. President Trump has tweeted “NO COLLUSION”, “WITCH HUNT”, “FAKE DOSSIER”, “DEEP STATE COUP”, and “RUSSIAN HOAX” for nearly 2 years, and after Robert Mueller released his findings, the President seems to have been proven right. Though the whole report has not been released to the public, Attorney General Barr released a four-page summary in which he quoted Mueller, writing, “The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.” The no collusion report, even after the arrests of Paul Manafort, Michael Cohen, and Roger Stone, provided a huge victory for the President. The President has been called a Russian spy and agent by Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Eric Swalwell (D-CA), yet neither man has apologized to the President, nor has the mainstream liberal media. MSNBC and CNN have screamed collusion and impeachment for 2 years and promised the American people that they had evidence for these claims, but they have lost nearly all credibility and trust. They pushed this story based on a phony dossier, which stated that Michael Cohen went to Prague and that Putin had incriminating videos of Trump with prostitutes in 2013. On the topic of Obstruction of Justice, Robert Mueller left the decision up to both the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General. People have complained that Barr is protecting Trump by declaring no Obstruction, yet Rosenstein also had to agree on that decision. In his four-page summary, Barr wrote, “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.” Both men declared there was not enough evidence to charge the President, though the full report will make the evidence on both sides more clear. President Trump has been totally vindicated by the Mueller Report and will certainly use it as a 2020 campaign strategy. On that note, AG Barr testified in front of Congress that he believes spying occurred during 2016 election and that he will be looking into unelected bureaucrats staging a coup. Andy McCabe, who was acting FBI director after the firing of Comey and was fired after lying to investigators, has said that he talked about invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the President from office. This statement should deeply alarm every American, regardless of political affiliation, since an unelected man attempted to stage a coup to remove a duly elected President from office solely because he did not like that he fired his boss. Comey even admitted that Trump had the complete right to fire him in Congressional testimony in 2017. AG Barr has vowed to investigate this as well as the spying on Carter Page, a Trump campaign member. It is also worthy to note former-AG Loretta Lynch’s involvement with Peter Strozk and Lisa Page and how their text messages reveal that POTUS wanted to be informed about everything. Obviously, POTUS was former President Obama, and it would be deeply troubling if these orders of spying came from him. A current President, spying on a candidate that he does not support, clearly violates the 4th Amendment and the protection of American citizens. The Mueller Report has answered the main questions about President Trump but has now revealed more questions about the Dossier, the FISA Courts, Hillary Clinton’s campaign, and President Obama’s conduct, all of which need to be investigated for actual crimes.
