William Barr: Mueller Clears Trump in Russia Probe



The Washington Times
 

Special counsel Robert Mueller vindicates President Trump of conspiring with Russia to influence the 2016 election, according to a summary of his findings released Sunday by Attorney General William Barr.

“The Special counsel recognized that ‘the evidence does not establish that the President was involved in an underlying crime related to Russian election interference,” Mr. Barr wrote.

“The Special Counsel did not find that the Trump campaign, or anyone associated with it, conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in these efforts, despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign,” Mr. Barr also wrote.

Mr. Barr also said Mr. Mueller did not reach a conclusion on the president’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey did not constitute obstruction of justice. But Mr. Barr said he could not find any evidence in Mr. Mueller’s conclusions that Mr. Trump obstructed justice.

“The report identifies no actions that, in our judgment, constitute obstructive conduct, had a nexus to a pending or contemplated proceeding, and were done with corrupt intent,” Mr. wrote.

Mr. Mueller finished his nearly two-year probe and turned his report into Mr. Barr on Friday. The attorney general spent the weekend reading the report along with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the man who initiated the special counsel in 2017.

Video: Tucker: No American Citizen Has Been Charged With Collusion


Democrats are extremists who want to continue chasing the ‘Russian collusion’ hoax while our country goes to hell in a hand basket
 

By Jon Dougherty

When you think about what Democrats campaigned on during the 2018 midterms, they gave us every indication that, if they were to win, they weren’t really interested in governing.

Oh, they talked here and there about “jobs,” “the economy,” “health care,” etc., but really, mostly what Democratic candidates talked about was “impeaching Donald Trump.”

Three months into the current congressional session, majority Democrats in the House have spent precious little time on real issues that most Americans believe are important, and nearly all of their time virtue-signaling to their insane Left-wing base. They’ve proposed new gun control legislation, a bill to require presidents to release their tax returns, a bill to prevent the president from firing Robert Mueller (not that it matters now that his probe is over), and a law to make it easier for 16-year-olds and illegal aliens to vote, among other pointless legislation.

Meanwhile, as Fox News‘ Tucker Carlson pointed out on his show Friday, the country has been in dire need of some congressional attention because we’ve got real problems that need real solutions. And lo and behold, none of them have anything to do with deposing our president.

While Congress busied itself with investigating the “Russian collusion” hoax, “this country, the country they’re supposed to be running, has become obviously and measurably worse.”

He noted that suicides and drug overdoses are up, “life expectancy” in America “is falling, the borders are a mess — we have no clue who lives in this country,” he continued.

In addition, the nation’s “public schools are a joke — you wouldn’t send your kid to them if you had a choice,” Carlson noted. “Infrastructure is crumbling. Hundreds of thousands of Americans sleep outside every night. So what are our leaders talking about? What are they spending their time obsessing over? What do they get TV bookings to rant about? Some irrelevant meeting with a minor Russian lawyer in Trump Tower three years ago.”

“The New York City subway barely works,” Carlson said. “The largest city in the United States smells like garbage. People are fleeing it. What is Bill DeBlasio talking about? He’s ranting about Putin.”

“This has been a disaster. How can we let the people who are responsible for it continue as if it never happened?”

Watch around the 5:10 mark:

 

For the record, according to various polls and surveys (Pew Research, Gallup, etc.), here are the issues that are, by far, most important to Americans:

— The Economy

— Foreign policy/defending against terrorism

— Immigration

— Health care (remember when Obama and the Democrats said the Affordable Care Act was going to fix all of our healthcare problems and issues?)

For states, they are:

— The opioid epidemic

— Transportation/infrastructure

— A trained, educated, ready workforce

— Cybersecurity/privacy

— Vote fraud

According to the most recent Rasmussen Reports figure, just 37 percent of Americans believe the country is headed in the right direction. Notably, this figure fell from 43 percent in early December to 31 percent in early January — or about the time Democrats won a majority in the House and prepared to take it over.

“The Mueller investigation is over as of tonight but the wreckage remains,” Carlson said Friday. “For the sake of this country, let’s clean it up quickly and move on.”

Most Americans would agree.

Sara Carter: Americans Will be Stunned by Depth of Deep State Anti-Trump Plot


Americans Are No Fools, Trust Is Eroding In Dems ‘Witch Hunt’

There should be no doubt the American people are not fooled by the nearly three years of the politically charged ‘witch hunt’ against President Donald Trump.

In growing numbers a greater majority of people, who are exhausted of being the pawns of Trump’s enemies, both Democrats and yes, some Republicans, want it to stop. Those enemies have worked diligently for two years to turn the nation against a sitting president and have him impeached.

It’s now backfiring. Why? It’s simple: truth.

There is no evidence that the Trump campaign was colluding with Russia. No matter which way his enemies try to dice it and slice it – they just can’t prove it because it is based on lies. The false narratives they’ve been spinning for nearly three years and frankly, their constant badgering of everything Trump, is exhausting.

California Democrat Adam Schiff, who promises to investigate everything Trump, should take heed of this public warning, and his like minded colleagues who want to pursue impeachment should do the same.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report is expected to be completed soon. In fact, it already may be in the hands of Attorney General William Barr. However, it will be up to Barr to decide whether it is made public and more than likely some form of it will. Trump, along with all House members, have asked for transparency and they are right. After all, it’s tens of millions in tax payer dollars that were invested in this two year investigation.

Transparency And Moving On

Americans are ready for the report, ready for the truth and ready to move on.

According to a new Suffolk/USA Today Poll, revealed Monday that 50 percent of American’s agree with the president that Mueller’s investigation is a “Witch Hunt.” Those 50 percent of American’s believe Trump has been subjected to more investigations than previous presidents because of politics, while 47 percent disagree. Only three percent don’t have an opinion, according to USA Today.

Here’s How The Steele Dossier Spread Through The Media And Government


By Chuck Ross
TheDailyCaller.com

  • More than 15 journalists, several U.S. government officials and multiple lawmakers were shown or given the Steele dossier during the 2016 presidential campaign or shortly after.
  • Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele disseminated the dossier far and wide in an apparent attempt to insert the document’s salacious allegations into the media.
  • Newly unsealed court filings show how widespread this effort was.

Court documents released last week in a lawsuit involving the Steele dossier revealed new details about the campaign to disseminate the infamous anti-Trump report to the press and within the U.S. government.

Much was already known about Fusion GPS and dossier author Christopher Steele’s efforts to seed the dossier with reporters and government officials. Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson orchestrated several meetings between Steele and Washington, D.C.-based journalists prior to the 2016 election. It has also been widely reported that Steele and Simpson met with government officials in an attempt to ensure that Steele’s unverified findings landed on the government’s radar.

A deposition given by David Kramer, a longtime associate of former Sen. John McCain, shed light on even more contacts with reporters and government officials. Kramer’s Dec. 13, 2017, deposition was released on March 14 along with a batch of other documents from a dossier-related lawsuit against BuzzFeed News.

By giving the dossier to government officials, Fusion GPS and Steele were able to create news hooks for journalists to write stories airing the dossier’s unverified allegations.

That was the case with Yahoo! News, Mother Jones, CNN and BuzzFeed News, all of which published stories not about the underlying claims made in the dossier, but about the fact U.S. government officials were handling the document.

Here are all of the contacts that Steele, Simpson and Kramer had with government officials and the press.

Don Jr. Calls For Jerry Nadler To Recuse Himself For Russia Ties



By Patrick Howley
BigLeaguePolitics.com

Don Trump Jr. stated that he believes Jerry Nadler should recuse himself from all investigations pertaining to Russia, after Nadler’s deep Russian ties were exposed. Nadler, the Democrat congressman, is leading the subpoena charge against President Trump in spite of national outrage over Nadler’s son’s work for Gibson Dunn, which is suing Trump on behalf of private clients — a clear and actionable conflict of interest.


Lachlan Markay reported: “As the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee goes all out in his investigation of President Donald Trump’s ties to Russian interests, one of his campaign consultants is working on behalf of a prominent employee of Russia’s foreign-propaganda apparatus.

Ezra Friedlander is a lobbyist and political consultant who runs outreach to the Orthodox Jewish community of behalf of New York Rep. Jerry Nadler’s campaign. He’s also a public-relations executive, and his newest client is the wife of Kirill Vyshinsky, the head of Russian media outlet RIA Novosti’s Ukrainian arm.”

Adam Schiff Proven a Liar As the Bruce Ohr Transcript Is Released


RedState.com

One of the weapons the ‘deep state’ has been using to protect itself and its allies is the use of classification and redaction to prevent the public from learning exactly what transpired in the process whereby an opposition research document paid for by the Clinton campaign and compiled by a man with deep ties to officials in Putin’s Russia was repackaged and deodorized and pawned off on the intelligence community, the FBI, and feckless, credulous judges on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court as legitimate intelligence product.

Former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes has made the case time and again that redactions are being used to obscure wrongdoing and not to protect sources and methods.

As the Washington Examiner reported:

Nunes has expressed frustration with redactions in the past. The report the House Intelligence Committee released earlier this year on Russian interference in the 2016 election contained “page after page” of redactions,” Nunes lamented last week on Fox News. Without those blackouts, made at the behest of the U.S. intelligence community, Nunes claimed special counsel Robert Mueller’s recent indictment of 12 Russian officials on charges of hacking Democrats’ computers during the 2016 campaign would look “ridiculous” because it left out Republicans who were also targeted.

This morning, a crack appeared in the dam of cover-your-ass-redactions as Georgia Republican Doug Collins, the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, unilaterally released the testimony Bruce Ohr gave before that committee back in August.

“Out of an abundance of caution, we gave DOJ an opportunity to review them for information that would endanger national security, but after many months and little progress, our patience has grown thin,” Collins said.

“The proposed redactions have nothing to do with national security and are anathema to our goal of government transparency,” he continued, adding that “I am, therefore, today making one of these transcripts public.”

“I intend to make other transcripts public soon,” he said. “I’m willing to consider any reasonable redactions DOJ makes in a timely manner, but won’t allow these transcripts to remain shrouded in secrecy.”

This may be close to unprecedented but, as the Mueller investigation winds down, it is imperative that this information be made public so that evaluations can be made on exactly how the Russia collusion story got started and how it went from a Clinton campaign product to creating Robert Mueller as the tool of a slow-motion coup.
