With the end of Mueller’s so-called “Russia” investigation turning up nothing and leading to no serious crimes or indictments, the Democrats who have daily pushed the “Russia collusion” lie are already pivoting to a new conspiracy maintaining that Mueller is meaningless or is even part of the cover up!
For over two years, now, the Democrats have told us that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is an “honorable” man who is above reproach. But now that it looks like he is not indicting the president, his sons, or anyone in Trump’s inner circle, the Democrats are starting to throw their “honorable man” under the bus and blaming him for being part of a wide-ranging “conspiracy.”
After taking several days off Twitter, President Trump jumped back on the social media platform Sunday to show that he is in fine spirits and tweeting that it is a “great day.”
Good Morning, Have A Great Day!

But the joyous attitude is not shared by the dour Democrats whose Mueller god has failed them.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D, NY), for instance, is now saying that Mueller’s investigation doesn’t mean a thing. Despite telling us all for two years that Mueller’s investigation was the key to Trump’s downfall, Nadler is now saying the investigation doesn’t mean anything because despite Mueller’s finding of no collusion, “We know there was collusion.”
Nadler is sort of like Chicken Little crying the sky is falling despite the proof all around him that it isn’t.
Democratic California Rep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, also jumped in on Sunday to insist that the evidence doesn’t matter because “we just know” things.
Schiff claimed he trusted Mueller, but that his investigation is essentially meaningless. Schiff also claimed that Mueller hamstrung himself by not interviewing the president.
But there is a more serious undercurrent among the left. One of MSNBC’s resident fools, commentator Joy Reid, spoke the words all Democrats are secretly feeling: Mueller is part of a cover up.
“The fact that this investigation takes place within the Justice Department, which Donald Trump essentially controls and he got rid of the problem Jeff Sessions, who the one decent thing that he did was recuse himself,” Reid explained on Saturday.
“This guy is not recused,” she said about Barr. “It feels like the seeds of a cover-up are here.”
So, what you are seeing is the Democrats claiming that the Mueller report is meaningless, that Mueller is now part of enemy operations, and Trump is guilty, anyway, despite all the proof to the contrary.
Don’t let facts get in the way of their conspiracy theories, OK?
In the end, Sen. Ted Cruz is right. The Democrats intend to impeach Trump regardless of any facts.

Yeah. There’s all sorts of hoaxes in the world. There’s the flat earthers, the Loch Nessies, the Yeti fans, the ones that say the moon landing really happened on a Hollywood stage, the 9/11 truthers… oh, and the Muller “Collusion” fanatics. Yep, lots of nuts out there.
