The political left and all the Washington elites huffed and puffed — and with the release of the Robert Mueller report for which they’ve been waiting with such glee, with such eager anticipation — the wind in their sails collapsed.
Will they admit they were wrong? Will they apologize? Absolutely not! They will preserve.
The 488-page Mueller report released Thursday by Attorney General William Barr found that President Trump has been telling the truth. Neither he nor his campaign colluded with the Russians to steal the 2016 presidential election.
“… the investigation did not establish that the Trump Campaign coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities,” said the report.
And laboring over what has turned out to be a totally embarrassing narrative — that Mr. Trump and his campaign colluded with the Russians — Mr. Mueller and his associates also concluded, because they didn’t have authority, there was no “prosecutorial judgment” about obstruction.
However — to the delight of all the conspiracy theorists on the political left, which includes those in America’s ruling class that also encompasses the ever compliant media and those in government, particularly those in the “deep state” — Mr. Mueller’s report took a cheap shot stating that “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”
Which means — squat — nothing! But they will try.
Mr. Mueller and his cadre of Hillary Clinton loyalists who spent more than $27 million in this two-year wild goose chase investigated Mr. Trump for a crime he didn’t believe he committed and, says The Wall Street Journal, “which even Mr. Mueller now concedes he didn’t commit.”
So Mr. Trump has been exonerated.
The media, notably The New York Times, The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, CNN, MSNBC and the alphabet networks, are not admitting their mea culpas. In fact, they are clamping down, now brazenly pushing the impeachment narrative. They are furious, absolutely furious, that Mr. Trump won the election. And, never admitting they were wrong, they are not going to let it rest.
They won’t ever admit that their zealous, hate filled anxiety was never about the truth, that it was solely about bringing Mr. Trump down. And if they didn’t succeed, if they haven’t succeeded, well, try, try again.
Playing hypocrisy for all it’s worth, they refuse to allow Mr. Trump permission to halt the alien invasion of America. But today’s America has a much improved economy and full employment. Which they’ll have a hard time defending in 2020.
Never mind. They mean to prosecute Mr. Trump, by, if by nothing else, impeachment.
Which won’t work. But it will keep them occupied.
