Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s report revealed no coordination or collusion between Russia and President Donald Trump or anyone in his campaign. None.
President Trump’s full exoneration was a disaster for Democrats, former-President Barack Obama’s Justice Department, Hillary Clinton and partisan media outlets who relentlessly flacked an objectively-false Russia collusion narrative.
Simply stated, Obama’s DOJ/FBI exploited a phony dossier paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign, misled the FISA Court for authorization to spy on a GOP presidential nominee, leaked unfounded rumors to discredit his candidacy, then, after he won, launched a probe to derail his presidency – while making Watergate look like the work of well-meaning amateurs.
Writer Roger Simon observed: “[P]eople who were doing that, …politicians and…intelligence figures, …were, as is becoming increasingly clear, betraying the American Constitutional system… […] It was a conspiracy and, worse yet, a conspiracy ignited and carried out from within the FBI and the Department of Justice. Nothing could be more dangerous to a democratic society than that. How high this conspiracy went is still somewhat unclear…. [T]he likelihood of it having reached into the White House of the previous administration is great. It’s hard to imagine how it could have happened otherwise.”
The same Obama administration’s agency operatives had hard evidence of Hillary Clinton’s national security email felonies and let her off the hook. The cover up will be more difficult this time, because too much is already known. No investigation will be complete without exposing the FISA Court documents and internal DOJ/FBI communications. America may safely assume that some of those involved in promoting the false Trump/Russia collusion narrative have been deflecting attention from genuine crimes and improprieties.
The Wall Street Journal’s Kim Strassel wrote: “Citizens have gone to jail not for conspiracy, but for after-the-fact interactions with Mueller’s team. Dozens more have spent enormous amounts of money and time defending their reputations.”
America cannot “just move on” until the malefactors who committed this fraud face charges and suffer consequences for the damage they inflicted on the republic and America’s election process. Their scam undoubtedly influenced the results of the 2018 midterm in which Democrats won a House majority.
Mueller found no grounds for Trump/Russia collusion, but, effectively, his findings indicted disappointed liberal media zealots who, failing even modern journalism’s meager standards, fixated for two years on fraudulent Russia allegations and got everything spectacularly wrong. Allegedly “prestigious” news organizations including The New York Times and Washington Post, as well as invariably one-sided sources such as CNN and MSNBC, confirmed their conspicuous pro-Democrat biases by ignoring logic and the law, taking sides, and inciting national trauma.
The only “Russia collusion” was among Democratic officials and their DOJ/FBI and media operatives.
Misinformation harms democracies that rely on a free press to honestly and accurately report news. Sadly, Russia-gate is just one more example of how partisan left-wing American media cover almost everything political.
Clearly, “fake news” is a righteous appraisal of media figures who have repeatedly unmasked themselves as Democratic Party proxies with bylines and broadcasts.
