Conspiracy by Democrats Falls Flat

So after more than two years the Robert Mueller report exonerates president Trump from the primary accusation of collusion with the Russian government.

Tens of thousands of comments were written across the ocean at the pond. Multiple fp stories and diaries with the same conspiracy ... I have taken months of abuse for differing in opinion. Salem 21th century tarfeathered me and chased me off the blog after my contributions as a main diarist on foreign policy since the spring of 2005. Thx guys ... you've just fallen on your own sword.

The Justice Department's Summary of the Mueller Report | NPR |


Russian Interference in the 2016 US. Presidential Election.

The Special Counsel's report is divided into two parts. The first describes the results of the Special Counsel's investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The report outlines the Russian effort to influence the election and documents crimes committed by persons associated with the Russian government in connection with those efforts. The report further explains that a primary consideration for the Special Counsel's investigation was whether any Americans -- including individuals associated with the Trump campaign -- joined the Russian conspiracies to influence the election, which would be a federal crime. 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 U.S. 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."

A sorry state of affairs and will it give Der Trumpf enough boost to sail him through into a secong term?

I have taken over a year of daily abuse and troll ratings by a gang of four ... I stayed on course until some rights were taken away ... totalitarianism by any means to silence dissent.

Following through after BIG defeat ...

Given that we have yet to see Mueller's report but only Barr's "summary", and given that Barr is a fascist whore whose lips couldn't have truth pass them if a Fair Witness shoved his hand up Barr's bum and operated his mouth like a ventriloquist's dummy, I'm withholding judgment.  There is so much fudge in that summary that Barr could be the sole supplier for Keebler's cookies.

I promise you.

Mueller's NAKED, UNADULTERATED conclusion to investigation of "meddling and interference" by RUSSIAN agents colluding with Trump Campaign (LLC) to commit WHAT CRIME? would offer no reasonable explanation or evidence (material or circumstantial) to persons opposed to Trump's election to POTUS.

Such persons cannot even spell RICO.

Such persons are quite comfortable accepting conclusory statements as sufficient cause for action to remove, maim, and murder anyone who offends their personal ideers of justice in the USA. That's why the state of California admits the greatest number of death row prisoners on the planet.

fuck 'em.

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 requests to foreign governments for evidence, and interviewed approximately 500 witnesses.

I promise you.

Such persons are either unable or unwilling to read and analyze this material in order to to prepare an argument against Mueller's NAKED, UNADULTERATED conclusions.

Such persons are either unable or unwilling to RE-read the documentary "evidence" presented in Minority VIEWS and MEMOs. I read them. These are all circular references to US press reporting on claim asserted in the "dossier" provided by

Christofer Steele

paid for in part by

Fusion GPS

Remember that Feinstein released transcript of secrect senate hearing of testimony by Glenn Simpson et al.

I read that too. Over 250pp disclosing the industry that manufactures credentials of political enemies within the uniparty. Disgusting.

I'm absolutely in awe that anyone would expect the Republican perjury cop to save us from the orange menace.
My favorite part is still that the initial source of the Trump - Russia collusion was the LaRouche newsletter:
It's official: Russiagate is this generation's WMD
Only two facts in the piece could conceivably have been used to support the thesis: Trump met with a visiting Soviet official in 1986, and visited the Soviet Union in 1987. That's it. That's your cover story.

Worse, Chait's theory was first espoused in Lyndon Larouche's "Elephants and Donkeys" newsletter in 1987, under a headline, "Do Russians have a Trump card?" This is barrel-scraping writ large.

And anything less than proving Larouche right would be a massive disappointment. That Trump does nickel and dime corruption is as painfully obvious as could be. He also does the usual warcrimes. What more could you want?

Iraq WMD was garden-variety assault on a foreign territory.

"Russiagate" is this generation's red scare, a domestic assault on US civil rights.

Too bad Taibibi can't admit that. His Hunter-S-Thompson ICON-O-CLASTIC mantel has worn thin. His $$ must be on the line.

Mueller has already done far more than I ever expected him to, but I refuse to take Barr's word for what the report says.  I would call Barr a lying crapsack, but that would be an insult to lying crapsacks.

Soooo ...

You put yourself in the position to judge the truth embargoed by, at least, seven "lying crapsacks" (all veteran Republican bureucrats) hired by the DNC to railroad Trump into impeachment (which the majority leader has disavowed since January, because natural born punk) with a secret stash of inculpatory evidence.

From where does this expectation of honesty evidenced by Mueller's report come?

Dem lawmaker says party has evidence Mueller wasn't covering
"We have the evidence over the last two years that the Mueller investigation was not covering that is highly, highly suspicious," Rep. Katie Hill [CA-25], a member of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, told CNN's Alisyn Camerota on "New Day."
Hill cited ongoing controversies and questions relating to White House officials' security clearances, the possible sale of nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia and separation of migrant children and their parents at the U.S./Mexico border.
izzat collusion with hostile foreign agents OR obstruction of justice?

No, the Media Didn't Over-Hype 'Russiagate'
No human being on Earth has done more
to keep the Trump-Russia narrative in the news than Donald Trump.

Press corpse best guesstimate of the number of Mueller's report's pages moved from 300 to "nearly 400" this week. So there's that.

About accuracy in best guesstimate of the number of redacted words and phrases over all, delivered to the House Intelligence Committee approximately "mid-April."

Not quite.

YouTube contributor reveals Washington Post headline (image),
"Former CIA leaders give 'briefing book' to 2020 candidates to counteract 'fake news' and 'foreign election interference'" (27 Mar 2019)

How did I miss that?!

I do. not. do WaPoo. It's paywall locked away from "ad-blockers" --actually, blocked IP trackers.
