At this point, Democrats know they have no hope from Special Counsel Robert Mueller. His investigation reinforces the DC swamp theory.
This investigation fell apart months ago. So the only thing Mueller has been trying to do is provide cover for the Democrats.
He indicted Russians to support the ruse.
He targeted General Mike Flynn. That went south, as Flynn may very well have a case against Mueller and lots of Democrats.
Next, Mueller went after Manafort. After all, Manafort worked for a minute on the Trump campaign, so why not get him. Manafort was to be Trump’s Achilles’ heel, but Mueller got bupkus.
Then, Mueller raided the office of Trump’s former attorney. He too offered nothing, though he supposed to have audio tapes implicating Trump.
But let’s not forget Mueller’s first American catch. He was given 0 to 6 months in prison, and the whopping fine of $950. And now we learn that Papadopoulos might get a pass?
According to The Daily Caller:
Ratcliffe noted that the FBI opened its investigation on July 31, 2016, after receiving information from the Australian government about a conversation that Papadopoulos had on May 10, 2016, with Alexander Downer, the top Australian diplomat to the U.K.
But Ratcliffe, a top member of the House Judiciary Committee, suggested on Sunday that the FBI and Justice Department had information that contradicted its intelligence on Papadopoulos.
I can’t say I’m surprised to learn that Obama’s FBI and DOJ contradicted what they presented. They wanted to get Trump at all costs.
These are the same people who didn’t record or take notes when questioning Hillary Clinton for possible crimes. Also, the same crew who texted getting Trump at all costs.
The article continues,
“Hypothetically, if the Department of Justice and the FBI have another piece of evidence that directly refutes that, that directly contradicts that, what you would expect is for the Department of Justice to present both sides of the coin to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to evaluate the weight and sufficiency of that evidence,” Ratcliffe said.
“Instead, what happened here was Department of Justice and FBI officials in the Obama administration in October of 2016 only presented to the court the evidence that made the government’s case to get a warrant to spy on a Trump campaign associate,” he added.
Like the Kavanaugh witnesses, Mueller’s evidence is not only tainted, but non-existent against Trump. However, there is plenty of evidence against Clinton, Obama, and many others.
Democrats now hold on to one hope: win the mid-terms. They would do anything to get both the House and the Senate.
Worst case, they want the House. But there is another scenario: they win nothing. And that’s the scenario they should learn to accept.
