Here’s some more analysis of Robert Mueller’s statement yesterday, this one complete with the utterly predictable responses from various Democratic Presidential hopefuls (apparently, “impeachment referral” was the big winner of the buzzword focus group test.)
This writer, Joe Sauders at Conservative Tribune, agrees with me that this was Mueller’s attempt to fire up more anti-Trump lunacy in the House as cover for his own shady investigation, and so that’s all we’re going to get out of this House for the next year and a half. He also makes a point made by Roger L. Simon at PJ Media, that the only important question Mueller really needed to answer was the one he studiously dodged: when did he realize that the “Russian collusion” narrative was a hoax? Because if he knew as early as he should have, then he must've been dragging out the investigation while he tried to lure Trump into a perjury trap, pressured innocent people to turn state’s evidence for a charge he knew to be a hoax, and allowed FISA warrants to be renewed based on false evidence.
Personally, I would compare Mueller’s lobbing of this stink bomb of innuendo as he exits with vows never to speak again to a bad magician who tosses a smoke bomb so he can flee the stage unseen before the tomatoes start flying at him.
Mollie Hemingway of Fox News made an excellent point: that after seeing their ratings collapse with the demise of the “Russia collusion” narrative, the media need impeachment even more than the Democrats do.
And Byron York of the Washington Examiner has a good look back on how the “Russian collusion” fairy tale got started, was whipped up, repeated, amplified and turned into the Democratic version of holy writ, so much so that they just can’t give up believing in it even after their own exhaustive, partisan investigation could find no evidence that it ever existed.
Finally, leave it to the conservative satire site, The Babylon Bee, to explain at last what is really at the bottom of Mueller’s report and more than two years’ of vicious partisan warfare that’s torn America apart: Hillary Clinton’s unbreakable refusal to admit to herself that she lost to Trump because Americans really, really didn’t want her to be President.
