“That’s the classic prosecutor’s cheap shot.”

So says Gregg Jarrett (who wrote the appropriately titled THE RUSSIA HOAX) of special counsel Robert Mueller’s decision to include the “we-didn’t-exonerate-Trump-on-obstruction” language in his report, which was finally released to the attorney general on Sunday. When a prosecutor loses a case, Jarrett explains, he sometimes just can’t resist adding that, well, even though they didn’t find sufficient evidence of any crime, that doesn’t mean the subject is innocent. So when Mueller found no basis to recommend any further indictments –- on “collusion” (conspiracy), obstruction, anything having to do with the Russia case –- he added that language on obstruction to muddy the waters.

And that’s the line that all Democrats and almost all media will run with --- not the truly stunning line about the Trump campaign not colluding with Russians “despite multiple offers from Russia-affiliated individuals.” Let that sink in a minute. Who were those individuals? Which ones were also affiliated with the Hillary campaign, perhaps trying to lay a trap, perhaps involved in the fraudulent Trump “dossier.” This –- not whether Trump said something disparaging about Robert Mueller in a tweet –- is the important stuff that cries out for more investigation.

But, anyway, after almost two years (not counting the fraudulent FBI probe that led to it); after issuing 3,000 subpoenas; carrying out 500 search warrants; and conducting 500 witness interviews –- along with spending a conservatively-estimated $35 million of taxpayer money –- Mueller and his team obviously didn’t get the result they wanted. So this is the little parting gift they offered to keep the door open for Democrats to keep going after the President. Even though he still lacks evidence to say Trump obstructed justice, Mueller left it up to Attorney General Bill Barr and deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to decide that question for themselves, which they did in short order because they simply don’t have sufficient evidence. In bringing it up but leaving the determination to them, Mueller “abdicates his responsibility as prosecutor,” as Jarrett explains it.

Sunday night, Democrats frantic to get rid of Trump were clinging tightly to that one tiny tendril of hope. Listen closely to the phraseology in a tweet like this one from Adam Schiff: “Mueller spent two years investigating obstruction of justice and found EVIDENCE [emphasis mine] that “does not exonerate” Trump. Barr took two days to set aside that EVIDENCE... [emphasis mine]. Follow me here: Dems have decided that by not exonerating Trump on obstruction of justice, Mueller is saying there is evidence Trump actually did obstruct justice. Those two things are not the same, except in demented minds so full of hate that they can’t even function.

Speaking at the airport in West Palm Beach, Trump referred to the report as “a complete and total exoneration.” As there is no recommendation for indictment in that report, he should be able to say that and go unchallenged. But by inserting that one bit of language into a report that overwhelmingly clears him, Mueller has made it possible for Democrats to say, “No, it isn’t.”

Mueller has had to admit –- along with other investigators such as McCabe, Comey and Rosenstein –- that his investigation was never impeded. He knows that even the firing of Comey was well within the President’s authority and did not constitute obstruction. And now that he is finished, we can be sure Trump would like complete transparency about the report if at all possible. Trump has even called for that, no doubt because it would help neutralize the Democrats’ endless cries of “Obstruction!” It wouldn’t surprise me if we found out this team of prosecutors had deliberately included material that can’t be released due to its classified nature or its disclosures about innocent individuals, so that when Barr inevitably had to withhold it there would be screams of “the White House is withholding evidence!”

Speaking of transparency, Democrats –- and with them I include all vicious anti-Trumpers –- are as see-through as the air inside Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s head. The only way I can explain it is that they think WE’RE too stupid to figure out their brilliant strategy. Today, Democrats are screaming “You better let us see every word of that report!” while hoping to God that some of it is withheld. Remember when they screamed “You better not fire Mueller!” while hoping to God that Trump would fire him? This is like that.

I’ve been saying for a long time that the Democrats obviously WANTED it to be true that Trump colluded with the Russians. Today, it’s very obvious that they did, as they are horribly disappointed to find out he didn’t collude. Talk about twisted; think of the implications if it were true: that the President of the United States stole an election and was a dirty traitor, on par with Benedict Arnold, the kind of low-life they used to hang in the public square, and also that Russia had actually succeeded in putting a puppet of Vladimir Putin in the most powerful position on earth. Do they even care how destabilizing something like this would be? That countries have been plunged into civil war over less? But look at how upsetting it is for them to hear conclusively that this didn’t happen!

The Trump 2020 campaign has already created a video that should embarrass the life out of Democrat leaders like Jerrold Nadler, Adam Schiff and Richard Blumenthal, if they were capable of feeling embarrassment. The internet is forever, and we will always have this hilarious video of these clowns intoning that “we have strong evidence of collusion” –- between Trump and the Russians. Even “a mountain of evidence.” I don’t need to tell you what this is a mountain of. CNN and MSNBC created their own mountains of that same material.

https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/435540-trump-campaign-slams-dems-for-collusion-hoax

 

Also, if Mueller found no evidence of collusion with Russia, what was the “evidence” used by the FBI to start the whole investigation into Trump in the first place? If the FBI had had anything real, wouldn’t it have been looked into and included by the Mueller team as an indictable offense? If there’s no evidence now, it means there was no evidence then, so what they had was lies. I’m talking mid-2016, perhaps earlier, with the “evidence” provided by Christopher Steele, Alexander Downer, Nellie Ohr, and the rest. I’m talking the lies told by ex-CIA chief John Brennan (who flat-out called Trump a traitor), James Clapper, Comey and more. The lack of findings in the Mueller report tells us: there was apparently never anything to it at all. 

So that’s where we need to go next. Trump could start by declassifying a lot of material related to the FBI and the FISA court. This nation will not heal until we have answers about that, nor until we can see that America operates under one consistent form of justice. Bill Barr, take notice: We need to follow that trail back wherever it goes. WHEREVER it goes.

The left can’t risk exposure, so they still scream about obstruction as a way of saying, “Look over here! Not over there! Over here!” And Mueller, with that one little phrase about not exonerating Trump on obstruction, has made their game much easier. Which brings our discussion full circle. Mark Levin took on Mueller’s handling of the obstruction case in a post I’ll share with you here. He says that since Mueller didn’t actively pursue the obstruction issue (as he had no case), he should never have made it a part of his report in the first place. Levin also notes it’s not Mueller’s job as prosecutor to “exonerate” anyone. It occurs to me that Mueller seems as unclear about his responsibilities as special counsel as Comey did of his as FBI director.

https://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3737058/posts

 

Alan Dershowitz also criticizes Mueller, calling his non-decision on the issue of obstruction a “cop-out.” In its wishy-washiness, he says, Mueller’s report sounds like “a law-school exam.” If Mueller didn’t have enough evidence to indict, he should have just said so and ended this charade.

    Mueller did what any soldier should do when given his "marching orders." Do the best you can to follow them. Everyone with a useable brain knows his marching orders were to give the left something they could use to impeach and remove the duly elected President. The fact he took almost two years getting to the point he did is a clear indication of his willingness to obey. He even recruited a squad of lieutenants who were enthusiastic about the mission themselves. And when they were unable (without lying more egregiously about what got them started) to produce the product they were ordered to, "general" Mueller did the only thing he could to do in order to show he was following his orders: Allow some "mission creep" by making that cheap and BS declaration that he "couldn't exonerate" the President of a charge he wasn't ordered to look into in the first place.

    Well, that stinks that these democrat thiefs got rich off of false claims! We, the tax payers, will never see that money back! Every child in America could probably go to college on what they put in their pockets! They are smarter than anyone gives them credit!!! The republicans are real shisters if they don’t stand up for our rights as citizens of this country and proscecute these criminal hoaxsters! Either they are spineless, being paid to shut up or just plainly don’t care! All these politicians need to be replaced if they don’t stop looking the other way! If there were a better place to go I would go.... That’s a really sad fact! We all hanging onto God and Trump and a few good people but Hillary is right when she said if she goes, half of DC will go with her! ??????

    trying to be a Comey. But then Mueller is NOT a prosecutor, he is a failure post FBI and likely Pre FBI. ergo Boston? His job is to say yes or no. That's all yes he cast doubt. But he has no basis to say if there was obstruction. if ther was then he should have clearly stated there was. This is nothig more than slander and innuendo which has NO place in a legal proceeding. If Mueller didn't know that Greg Jarrett jsut told him and so did Dershowitz. The dems have zero to run with. We don't investigate to find a crime, we investigate crime. End of story

    Thank you for your great article. I only pray that all the truth will be revealed and completely exonerate our president. Mueller still looks pro Democrats. He also needs to be exposed completely. He's not a friend of President Trump. Right now it seems that the president will not go into the damning claims that are still in the report. He is letting it alone for now and I think rightly so. Greg Jarret and Allen Dershowitz are so right in their declarations.

    I've been thinking about the release of the Mueller report after I just submitted a comment on the same. By the way, thanks for providing a spot for ordinary people like me to safely express an opinion. That said, I've been looking into the profile and history of Robert Mueller and he seems to be a good man who has served his country and tried to be an honorable person. I think he is. I believe we should be grateful that he didn't alter the report to bolster the hopes and dreams of the liberal left and that he truthfully concluded that there was no Russia collusion. I also realize now that it wasn't his place to exonerate President Trump in his report; that is the job of the Attorney General Barr. I admit my mistake. I wish the liberal media that take facts and run with them after they have been doctored would admit the same!

    In spite of l'il Bobby's snarky, spineless comment about obstruction at the end, Mueller's report is a full vindication - of Trump and his election campaign. It is NOT a vindication of Mueller, nor of the senior leadership (all Obama appointed) FBI and DOJ. The left will whine and pule (no matter what happens) if Bill Barr goes after Obama and his senior political appointees for their criminal activity, In fact Mueller, who set up as partisan a group of prosecutors as one can imagine, and who was guilty on multiple fronts of prosecutorial abuse should also be put under the Loupe. It is not revenge - it is cleaning up the cess pool that styled themselves "the deep state". And at the top of the list of malfeasants should beJohn Brennan and Clapper. (If you want to see what Brennan looks like, go to the new Funk and Wagnall dictionary. His picture is near the front, right between 'aspirin' and 'astronaut').

    03/26/2019 12:02 PM

    Thank you once again for a well written article that clearly explains a complicated issue! This charade that drove the Mueller 'report' is so childish it reminds me of a playground bully smugly announcing "Oh, yeah? Okay, Bobby didn't steal the softball like we said, but that doesn't mean he didn't take Milton's cookie." I'm always hoping that someone who appears to be one of the bad guys will prove me wrong, but I was disappointed once again with the Mueller report's cheap parting shot paving the way for President Trump haters to skip down the yellow brick road of insanity.

    HM had it exactly right. The Libs always command the narrative. They take the offensive and control the language and the words that sway public opinions. The GOP is always slow on the draw or don't draw at all. They come across as a bunch of weak spined wimps. Why do we elect so many of this ilk?

    03/26/2019 02:41 AM

    No doubt the investigation was a hoax!!! The Demos clearly - without a doubt - would have to prove vote tampering for me to believe any type of injustice by the president. I do not have any type of social media account so nothing of that nature coerced me to decide to cast my vote for the right presidential candidate. It was all about history in my book.

    While on the subject of Demos, here is something for you to ponder. Is it possible that AOC and the "Green Dreamers" are big fans of Merle Haggard's song "Rainbow Stew"? Some of the lyrics make reference to learning how to burn water, the gasoline car being gone, airplanes flying without any fuel, and the sunlight heating our homes. Could they have taking The Hag's sarcastic lyrics seriously? His rainbow stew recipe contains no beef...Hmmm! (No offense toward the family of the late Merle Haggard. I still enjoy hearing his songs.)

    Apparently, being a Democrat means never having to say you're sorry!
    I was shocked at the liberal media being so angry and upset about Mueller's report. I thought that it was obvious that there was no evidence against President Trump, and they were just saying that he was guilty because they wanted him to be. Their reaction shows how little research they did; they just believed the collusion narrative.
    Also, no matter what the political party of the president, it's a terrible and serious thing for him to be found guilty of working with a foreign country to steal the election. Everyone SHOULD be relieved that this didn't happen.
    The Democrats who claimed to have evidence of Trump's wrongdoing, and the media people who believed it just because they wanted to are the people who are dividing this country. They are the ones who are being used by the Russians to weaken America.

    If there ever was a reason to despise Mueller, this is it. Isn't MAN enough to admit he failed. He knew from the start, this was a hoax. Time for him to pay, dearly for his corruption, he KNEW better and did it anyway. Time for GITMO and the execution of sentence.

    It's funny how one line-- which meant-- Mueller either doesn't understand what the laws on obstruction are, he was unable to separate his personal animus against Trump from the decision making process, his loyalty to Comey interfered with his ability to make the decision, or he was using his position as a weapon against Trump to create trouble because of his personal bias--That one line means he never finished the job --so his boss had to do it for him. Mueller was not separate from the DOJ, he was accountable to them, he was funded by them, Barr was his superior left to clean up after him. Thank God that Barr, Rosenstein and the legal council of the DOJ didn't have his problem.

    If the President is not innocent until proven guilty then no American is innocent until proven guilty. The Mueller Report should not have contained the statement that his report does not exonerate the President.

Point is that when a snipe hunt is instigated and nothing is found, to the tune of $23,000,000 +, someone needs to be held accountable and someone or ones need to pay that back.

    Thank you Mike for keeping us informed on the Mueller investigation. My hope is every Republican in Congress reads your newsletter today, complete with the comments of your readers. I am THRILLED to hear Lindsay Graham wants to get this story out to everyone. The money spent on this report makes me ill. I think about what could have been a better use for the money spent. I am also upset with other Republicans who have not supported President Trump; it is time for all the Republicans in Congress to get their act together and support President Trump and to listen to the voters for a change. Some of them are thinking about running in 2020 for President; it appears we have men and women who are self-serving and hungry for Power in this party and could care less about combine wisdom of the voters.
    I pray when the whole story is revealed, those who chose the dark side will be brought to Justice. Again thank you.

    Hi Governor!

    I noticed a section of one of your statements that might very easily be used out of context. The beginning of the 8th paragraph: "... WANTED it to be true that Trump colluded with the Russians. Today, it’s very obvious that they did..." can be spun to falsely indicate that you claim "it's very obvious" that Trump colluded with the Russians.

    With the conditions we live in today, we all need to be very careful how we word our statements.

    If the Dems & Liberals succeed in taking down Trump then it will then be America's last days.

Just how many thousands have already illegally entered our country with more coming. The continued delay of our wall is to allow as many to enter as possible before it can be stopped... the total may end up in millions... and they will end up VOTING!!!

    Well, that stinks that these democrat thiefs got rich off of false claims! We, the tax payers, will never see that money back! Every child in America could probably go to college on what they put in their pockets! They are smarter than anyone gives them credit!!! The republicans are real shisters if they don’t stand up for our rights as citizens of this country and proscecute these criminal hoaxsters! Either they are spineless, being paid to shut up or just plainly don’t care! All these politicians need to be replaced if they don’t stop looking the other way! If there were a better place to go I would go.... That’s a really sad fact! We all hanging onto God and Trump and a few good people but Hillary is right when she said if she goes, half of DC will go with her! ??????

    trying to be a Comey. But then Mueller is NOT a prosecutor, he is a failure post FBI and likely Pre FBI. ergo Boston? His job is to say yes or no. That's all yes he cast doubt. But he has no basis to say if there was obstruction. if ther was then he should have clearly stated there was. This is nothig more than slander and innuendo which has NO place in a legal proceeding. If Mueller didn't know that Greg Jarrett jsut told him and so did Dershowitz. The dems have zero to run with. We don't investigate to find a crime, we investigate crime. End of story

    Thank you for your great article. I only pray that all the truth will be revealed and completely exonerate our president. Mueller still looks pro Democrats. He also needs to be exposed completely. He's not a friend of President Trump. Right now it seems that the president will not go into the damning claims that are still in the report. He is letting it alone for now and I think rightly so. Greg Jarret and Allen Dershowitz are so right in their declarations.

    I've been thinking about the release of the Mueller report after I just submitted a comment on the same. By the way, thanks for providing a spot for ordinary people like me to safely express an opinion. That said, I've been looking into the profile and history of Robert Mueller and he seems to be a good man who has served his country and tried to be an honorable person. I think he is. I believe we should be grateful that he didn't alter the report to bolster the hopes and dreams of the liberal left and that he truthfully concluded that there was no Russia collusion. I also realize now that it wasn't his place to exonerate President Trump in his report; that is the job of the Attorney General Barr. I admit my mistake. I wish the liberal media that take facts and run with them after they have been doctored would admit the same!

    In spite of l'il Bobby's snarky, spineless comment about obstruction at the end, Mueller's report is a full vindication - of Trump and his election campaign. It is NOT a vindication of Mueller, nor of the senior leadership (all Obama appointed) FBI and DOJ. The left will whine and pule (no matter what happens) if Bill Barr goes after Obama and his senior political appointees for their criminal activity, In fact Mueller, who set up as partisan a group of prosecutors as one can imagine, and who was guilty on multiple fronts of prosecutorial abuse should also be put under the Loupe. It is not revenge - it is cleaning up the cess pool that styled themselves "the deep state". And at the top of the list of malfeasants should beJohn Brennan and Clapper. (If you want to see what Brennan looks like, go to the new Funk and Wagnall dictionary. His picture is near the front, right between 'aspirin' and 'astronaut').

    Thank you once again for a well written article that clearly explains a complicated issue! This charade that drove the Mueller 'report' is so childish it reminds me of a playground bully smugly announcing "Oh, yeah? Okay, Bobby didn't steal the softball like we said, but that doesn't mean he didn't take Milton's cookie." I'm always hoping that someone who appears to be one of the bad guys will prove me wrong, but I was disappointed once again with the Mueller report's cheap parting shot paving the way for President Trump haters to skip down the yellow brick road of insanity.

    HM had it exactly right. The Libs always command the narrative. They take the offensive and control the language and the words that sway public opinions. The GOP is always slow on the draw or don't draw at all. They come across as a bunch of weak spined wimps. Why do we elect so many of this ilk?

    No doubt the investigation was a hoax!!! The Demos clearly - without a doubt - would have to prove vote tampering for me to believe any type of injustice by the president. I do not have any type of social media account so nothing of that nature coerced me to decide to cast my vote for the right presidential candidate. It was all about history in my book.

    While on the subject of Demos, here is something for you to ponder. Is it possible that AOC and the "Green Dreamers" are big fans of Merle Haggard's song "Rainbow Stew"? Some of the lyrics make reference to learning how to burn water, the gasoline car being gone, airplanes flying without any fuel, and the sunlight heating our homes. Could they have taking The Hag's sarcastic lyrics seriously? His rainbow stew recipe contains no beef...Hmmm! (No offense toward the family of the late Merle Haggard. I still enjoy hearing his songs.)

    Apparently, being a Democrat means never having to say you're sorry!
    I was shocked at the liberal media being so angry and upset about Mueller's report. I thought that it was obvious that there was no evidence against President Trump, and they were just saying that he was guilty because they wanted him to be. Their reaction shows how little research they did; they just believed the collusion narrative.
    Also, no matter what the political party of the president, it's a terrible and serious thing for him to be found guilty of working with a foreign country to steal the election. Everyone SHOULD be relieved that this didn't happen.
    The Democrats who claimed to have evidence of Trump's wrongdoing, and the media people who believed it just because they wanted to are the people who are dividing this country. They are the ones who are being used by the Russians to weaken America.

    If there ever was a reason to despise Mueller, this is it. Isn't MAN enough to admit he failed. He knew from the start, this was a hoax. Time for him to pay, dearly for his corruption, he KNEW better and did it anyway. Time for GITMO and the execution of sentence.

    It's funny how one line-- which meant-- Mueller either doesn't understand what the laws on obstruction are, he was unable to separate his personal animus against Trump from the decision making process, his loyalty to Comey interfered with his ability to make the decision, or he was using his position as a weapon against Trump to create trouble because of his personal bias--That one line means he never finished the job --so his boss had to do it for him. Mueller was not separate from the DOJ, he was accountable to them, he was funded by them, Barr was his superior left to clean up after him. Thank God that Barr, Rosenstein and the legal council of the DOJ didn't have his problem.

    If the President is not innocent until proven guilty then no American is innocent until proven guilty. The Mueller Report should not have contained the statement that his report does not exonerate the President.

    Okay, Mueller report is out. They got nothing.
    Now it's time to bring charges against the people who started this nonsense. Hillary needs to be at the top of the list, then Coney, then, well the list goes on and on. Point is that when a snipe hunt is instigated and nothing is found, to the tune of $23,000,000 +, someone needs to be held accountable and someone or ones need to pay that back.

    Thank you Mike for keeping us informed on the Mueller investigation. My hope is every Republican in Congress reads your newsletter today, complete with the comments of your readers. I am THRILLED to hear Lindsay Graham wants to get this story out to everyone. The money spent on this report makes me ill. I think about what could have been a better use for the money spent. I am also upset with other Republicans who have not supported President Trump; it is time for all the Republicans in Congress to get their act together and support President Trump and to listen to the voters for a change. Some of them are thinking about running in 2020 for President; it appears we have men and women who are self-serving and hungry for Power in this party and could care less about combine wisdom of the voters.
    I pray when the whole story is revealed, those who chose the dark side will be brought to Justice. Again thank you.

    Hi Governor!

    I noticed a section of one of your statements that might very easily be used out of context. The beginning of the 8th paragraph: "... WANTED it to be true that Trump colluded with the Russians. Today, it’s very obvious that they did..." can be spun to falsely indicate that you claim "it's very obvious" that Trump colluded with the Russians.

    With the conditions we live in today, we all need to be very careful how we word our statements.

    If the Dems & Liberals succeed in taking down Trump then it will then be America's last days. Trump is the only one that stands between the good Americans and the traitors that want to destroy our country. Another horror is the invasion of our southern border. Just how many thousands have already illegally entered our country with more coming. The continued delay of our wall is to allow as many to enter as possible before it can be stopped... the total may end up in millions... and they will end up VOTING!!!
