Let me put this plainly:
There was no collusion with Russia in the 2016 Donald Trump Presidential election campaign. In Attorney General William Barr’s letter to the public, written on March 24th, he gave a summary of the Robert Mueller investigation, and it states that “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 Presidential Election.” It is quick to jump to the conclusion that this investigation may not have been rigorous enough, but keep in mind that the “Special Counsel issued more than 2,800 subpoenas, executed nearly 500 search warrants, obtained more than 230 orders for communication records, issued almost 50 orders authorizing use of pen registers, made 13 foreign requests to foreign governments for evidence, and interviewed approximately 500 witnesses.” Now if you don’t think this is enough to prove that there was no collusion in the campaign, and you still hope that Donald Trump might face indictment, the summary also notes that “the report does not recommend any further indictment nor did the special counsel obtain any sealed indictments that have yet to be made to the public.”
The $25,000,000, 3-year long investigation confirms that the President is not in office because of outside forces, but because he was able to honestly win the election. But there is still one area where the Democrats, namely Representative Adam Schiff, still want to attempt to indict the President: obstruction of justice. Attorney General Barr’s summary contains two sections, the first one addressing Russian collusion itself, and obstruction was the other one. This section does leave some grey area for the President, as it notably references the Special Counsel, stating “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.” What the report is referring to is the firing of FBI Director James Comey, but this event provides a minimal basis for a new investigation. James Comey was insanely unpopular with Democrats for announced the results of an FBI Investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails from the State Department shortly before the 2016 election. However, when Donald Trump made the decision to fire him, Democrats uproared as if they never wanted Comey out.
The Democrats are scrambling to fulfill their promise of impeachment to those who voted for them in the 2018 midterms. Adam Schiff, the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, is desperate to find a way to get the President behind bars. Soon enough, the Mueller report will be made public, and will likely align with Barr’s summary. The American public will then be able to see through the Democrats weak, impeachment based agenda. They keep doing so because they secretly know that Donald Trump will be serving till 2024. The candidates being put forward in the primaries are poor matches for someone like President Trump, and this recent news definitely will not help paint the President as someone who needs to work with foreign governments to win.
If you remember, Donald Trump was a vocal critic of the Mueller report, routinely calling it a “witch hunt.” There was even concern that he would fire Robert Mueller, and the media was going in circles about the situation. Of course, Donald Trump allowed the investigation to go on, and there was nothing.
Please remember that regardless of how much you may despise a politician, that you should not want collusion from a foreign government in your country’s election. Better luck next time, Dems.
