Trump campaign

Mueller’s Bitter End

Beyond infuriating Democrats Mueller stated only the obvious. However, he created a further problem for Trump-haters because buried in Mueller’s statement was an important statement of fact that further exonerates President Trump.

No question there was spying on Trump campaign, but how much?

Byron York, Washington Examiner

There was no doubt spying happened. Now, the question is whether there was more than is now publicly known. Congressional investigators are anxiously awaiting the results of an investigation into at least some of the surveillance by Justice Department inspector general Michael Horowitz. That report is thought to be coming in the next couple of months. They are also watching to see what Barr will investigate on his own. Both are deeply important efforts. Just as the public needed to know what is in the Mueller report, it needs to know about the FBI's secret political operations in the 2016 campaign.

Attorney General Barr: “the evidence is now that the President was falsely accused”

We ignored the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary grandstanding and making fools of themselves to bring you a mash-up of the key points from Attorney General Willam Barr's testimony during yesterday's hearing on the Special Counsel's investigation and report on Russian involvement in the 2016 election.

When did Mueller know there was no collusion?

Byron York, Washington Examiner

In the wake of the release of Mueller's report, there are indications that special counsel prosecutors mostly knew by the end of 2017, and certainly by a few months later, that the evidence would not establish that conspiracy or coordination — or collusion, to use the popular term — had taken place. It is clear Mueller first looked for collusion in all the obvious places. Failing to establish that it took place, he looked farther to the fringes of the Trump-Russia affair. He failed to establish that it took place there, either. As time passed and the two-year mark for his investigation approached, he finally gave up.

Trump’s Intersectional Weekend

While we don’t buy the idea that all of society is controlled by oppressive intersectional institutions, the Trump team has, from the beginning of his unlikely rise to the Oval Office, recognized that the key elements of a winning political coalition on the Right do intersect, and their nexus is constitutional liberty, especially as protected by the First and Second Amendments.

The Biggest Hole In The Mueller Report

We have been going through the Mueller Report and will have a few more things to say about it as we complete our review and analysis, but first let’s go over what we see as the biggest hole in the Report. The biggest hole is the Report’s utter failure to address the validity of the “predicate” to the entire Trump investigation.

The Real Reason Democrats Went Nuts Over AG Barr’s Testimony

That participants in the Trump campaign were spied upon an irrefutable fact. So, why did the Democrats and their Leftwing media do-boys go nuts about it? Because if Barr investigates whether the spying was “was adequately predicated" it will reveal the Democrat-generated falsehoods behind the closed loop system that set-up the entire Trump – Russia investigation.

Barr is right, spying on Trump campaign did occur

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Cable news commentators called Barr's statement "stunning" and appeared baffled that the attorney general would make such a claim "without evidence." The baffling thing was why they were baffled. Barr's statement was accurate and supported by publicly known facts. There is simply no doubt that the FBI wiretapped a Trump campaign figure. Is a wiretap "spying"? It is hard to imagine a practice more associated with spying. Despite the cries from outraged Democrats and the media analysts who simply can't imagine what Barr might have been referring to, the attorney general's words were demonstrably true.

It’s Not Collateral Damage To The Victims Of The Mueller Witch Hunt

Unlike Democrat and Far Left figures, such as Christine Blasey Ford, there is no million-dollar GoFundMe pot of gold at the end of the ordeal for Caputo, Corsi, Papadopoulos, Stone and the rest of those caught up in the hoax that became the Mueller investigation.

The Cynical Liars Who Started The Mueller Investigation Must Be Punished

Senator Lidsey Graham's investigators should start working their way backwards through the chain of command at the FBI and DOJ to find out who ordered the normal FISA warrant verification and factfinding process to be waived. Only at that point will the real extent of the conspiracy against President Trump be revealed, so that action may begin to punish those who perpetrated it.

These Democrats And #NeverTrumpers Must Apologize To America For The Russia Collusion Hoax

Will these Democrats and their #NeverTrump allies apologize to the country and to President Trump, his family and the innocent people whose lives they rent asunder? Tucker Carlson has said more than once, decent people apologize when they are wrong. As we see it, none of these Democrats and #NeverTrumpers can claim a shred of decency, but we should still demand that they apologize.

Ugly, Predicable and Irrelevant

What the Democrats, the anti-Trump media and the #NeverTrump crowd don’t seem to understand is that most of Michael Cohen's claims were aired in one form or another during the 2016 campaign and people still voted for Donald Trump.

New Poll: Conservatives Say Revoke Their Security Clearances

A new FedUp PAC poll shows that conservatives overwhelmingly agree that President Trump should revoke the security clearances of those involved in the unfolding scandal regarding the Obama administration’s spying on people in the Trump campaign.

Yes, the FBI Was Investigating the Trump Campaign When It Spied

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Representative Gowdy, Senator Rubio, and General Clapper maintain that the Justice Department and the FBI were just doing what we should expect them to do, and that we should applaud them. But this claim is based on the easily refuted fiction that the Justice Department and FBI were not investigating the Trump campaign. The claim also ignores the stubborn fact that, if all the Obama administration had been trying to do was check out a few bad apples with suspicious Russia ties, this could easily have been done by alerting the Trump campaign and asking for its help. Instead, Obama officials made the Trump campaign the subject of a counterintelligence investigation.

The London-to-Langley Spy Ring

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

What started in late 2015 with promise ended in panic, with British sources for the alleged Trump-Russia collusion going silent or mysteriously disappearing. A few days after Trump’s inauguration, the director of GCHQ, Robert Hannigan, abruptly resigned, prompting the Guardian to wonder if the sudden resignation was related to “British concerns over shared intelligence with the US.” All of this raises plenty of questions, but one conclusion about this epic fiasco requires no spying: the fingerprints of the British are all over it.

So They Were Spying On Trump's Campaign

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Doesn't pushing the idea that Trump colluded with the Russians require "a conspiratorial mind"? Is it fair to speculate endlessly on CNN and MSNBC about how special counsel Robert Mueller might prove collusion, when he hasn't done so after a year of trying? The media don't have to prove their Trump conspiracy theory to damage Trump's political standing. It can keep that black cloud of speculation hanging over his head on every front page and every newscast.

Obama officials' spying on Trump a departure from norms

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

Has an outgoing administration ever worked to delegitimize and dislodge its successor incoming administration like this? We hear many complaints, some justified, about Trump’s departure from standard political norms. But the greater and more dangerous departure from norms may be that of the Obama officials seeking to overturn the results of the 2016 election.

Defending spies in the Trump campaign is the height of liberal hypocrisy

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

The time is up for professional gatekeepers like Comey and Rosenstein to control what the public knows. They have done nothing but add to distrust of the FBI and that will not change if their ilk makes the final decisions. By insisting that the documents go online, Trump would be letting taxpayers see for themselves what the government was up to, and what it was hiding. And to connect the dots between the various agencies involved.

What Obama and his political Choom Gang did is far worse than Watergate

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

When Donald Trump was running for president, establishment Republicans and Democrats alike ran around thumping their chests feigning outrage that Mr. Trump would not be capable of respecting the Constitution. At that time, the Obama administration was spying on Mr. Trump and his campaign and carrying out the most extensive and brazen undercover espionage-war campaign against political opponents that we have ever seen. All the while nary a peep from these same smarmy swamp creatures as Mr. Obama rolled the constitution into joints so he and his political Choom Gang could smoke bales of weed.

The Inspector General's Report Will Expose the MSM as Treasonous

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

So what will the mainstream media who participated so heavily in this, who were in effect the enabler of this disgraceful anti-democratic enterprise, do when the inspector general's report is finally published? These next few weeks are going to be among the most interesting in our lifetimes -- especially for our friends in the press. We know from the NYT earlier this week they are preparing their excuses. Let's hope they don't have enough.
