On Sunday afternoon, a summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report was issued by the government that says Mueller did not find any proof that Donald Trump “colluded” with Russia, nor that he “obstructed justice” during the investigation. Liberals are now losing their tiny, hive mind.
U.S. Attorney General William Barr sent his summary letter to Congress on Sunday revealing that Mueller found that Trump did not collude with Russia “despite several efforts” by Russian agents to get him to join them in the plot.
This is new in that Mueller not only found there was no collusion, but that he found Trump actually turned down offers to collude.
The summary effectively exonerates President Trump of all the charges the left has been hurling at him for over two years.
Some of the letter states:
The Special Counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 US. presidential election. As the report states: “[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”
The Special Counsel found that Russian government actors successfully hacked into computers and obtained emails from persons affiliated with the Clinton campaign and Democratic Party organizations, and publicly disseminated those materials through various intermediaries, including WikiLeaks. Based on these activities, the Special Counsel brought criminal charges against a number of Russian military officers for conspiring to hack into computers in the United States for purposes of influencing the election. But as noted above, 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.
AG Barr added that the investigation cited sources of information spanning 13 countries and took statements from over 500 witnesses.
Barr added: “The Special Counsel states that while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.” He also said the “evidence developed during the Special Counsel’s investigation is not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense.”
All day Sunday the liberals squirmed.
Many hit TV in a desperate effort to move the goalposts and alter the debate to obscure their three years of lies.
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.
Republican @SenTedCruz: “If anyone thinks that the Mueller report being concluded is the end of the Democrats' attempt to take down President Trump, they haven’t been paying attention the last two years.” #CNNSOTU https://t.co/aMJgMvHxFY pic.twitter.com/m8NnRyyIOp

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.
