Hoax deniers are sick and still reeling from the Robert Mueller Report and his testimony.
The result was devastating.
There was no crime committed by President Donald Trump, his family or any American involving a Russia conspiracy. Worse, there was not enough evidence to indict for obstruction resulting in Trump’s total innocence.
Innocence - it’s a word that will not cross the lips of hoax deniers. But in the U.S. Criminal Justice System, there must be enough evidence for indictment and trial or not. If not, you are innocent. Period.
Many Trump haters believed he would be forced to resign, or quit for health reasons or frustration or be impeached for multiple reasons, from money laundering to the great Russia Hoax. None of that happened, of course, and even after the incredible debacle of the Mueller investigation, the attack on Trump continues.
Many left Democrats laugh at Republican conspiracy theories and don’t believe in the possibility that a group of people - Democrats/Bureaucrats/DOJ/FBI - conspired to create and deliver dirt on Trump to discredit him and set him up for removal from office in some manner: criminal accusations or impeachment or both.
Democrats and some Independents believe Trump is a crude, rude, distasteful, biased, arrogant, unethical man, but hate admitting that he has proposed and implemented outstanding policies for the economic growth, protection and future of America.
That is all beside the point.
We live in a new world of race-baiting, identity politics, hyper-partisanship, safe spaces and infatuation with socialism.
Republicans believe that a “Cabal” of likely suspects includes John O. Brennan, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr and his wife Nellie, John Podesta, Hillary Clinton, Glenn Simpson, Loretta Lynch and Andrew Weissmann. There are many others.
They claim the Cabal deliberately used a fake dossier paid for by Clinton (estimated at $10 Million) with Simpson as CEO of Fusion GPS and their British former MI6 agent Christopher Steele’s assigned task to create the dossier with Russian input. The purpose was to use this derogatory tool, disguised as “oppo research,” to bring charges against Trump.
But the conspiracy didn’t stop there.
They mislead a FISA court multiple times with the fake dossier to get warrants to spy on the Trump campaign. Some were caught in traps to get them to mistakenly lie about something/anything to convict them of trivial nonsense but enough to get them to reveal something/anything negative about Trump. Paul Manafort was an exception with his unrelated crimes a decade old.
One alleged example is the payment of $10,000 to George Papadopoulos in a meeting set up by a supposed Russian spy who was really a State Department/CIA agent. The trap for Papadopoulos was set. He would bring the money back to the States where the FBI would be waiting to immediately arrest him at the airport. Suspecting a trap, he outsmarted them by giving the money to his attorney in Greece. They interrogated him relentlessly and finally got him with a conviction (two weeks in jail) for mistaking a date.
Another example: Lieutenant General Michael Flynn was accused of having a Russian girlfriend (fake) and again caught him in a lie (because the FBI knew the answer from a wiretapped phone conversation) about having a meeting with the Russian Ambassador. Again, a trivial charge was enough to get him some jail time and enough to bankrupt him. This would force him to give up valuable dirt on Trump. It failed. Flynn’s case was ultimately dismissed.
Many examples like this failed, including the Trump Tower meeting, the roles of Donald Trump Jr. and family, Wikileaks and the lawsuit by the DNC, even hush money payments for Stormy Daniels and her now disgraced lawyer, Michael Avenatti.
But the “Coup de Grace” was Mueller’s Volume 1 admitting no crime was committed regarding conspiracy (“collusion” is legally not a crime).
Volume 2 included no substantive evidence about obstruction (otherwise he would be indicted) but Mueller used the incorrect term of “no exoneration.” The fact is that no American is ever exonerated as it is an expression or concept that is not part of our Criminal Justice System.
We still have the presumption of innocence in America for everyone, including presidents.
To seek impeachment without a “high crime or misdemeanor” is proof of political revenge and retribution.
It’s the ultimate power play by leftist Democrats.
For hoax eeniers who have been sick, they may vomit when they watch what happens from the “J. Durham-IG Horowitz-W. Barr” team.
It could be the real climax to an incredible political drama for the ages.
From Russia Hoax to Democratic Nightmare.
