Russian collusion

The Russian collusion hoax meets unbelievable end

Rep. Devin Nunes, Washington Examiner

Having extensively investigated this abuse, House Intelligence Committee Republicans will soon be submitting criminal referrals on numerous individuals involved in these matters. These people must be held to account to prevent similar abuses from occurring in the future. The men and women of our intelligence community perform an essential service defending American national security, and their ability to carry out their mission cannot be compromised by biased actors who seek to transform the intelligence agencies into weapons of political warfare.

Collusion Clingers and Their Flat-Earth Forebears

Deroy Murdock, National Review

Today’s Democrats resemble 15th-century flat earth bitter-enders. No matter what, many insist that Donald Trump and Russia colluded to win the White House. Even after special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation finally repudiated their destructive myth, they still scream: “Collusion!” All told, some 770 interviews and 600,000 documents (perhaps with some overlap) have prompted three independent investigations to declare — two definitively and one initially — that “Trump–Russia collusion” is a hoax. How much more proof do they need?

CNN Officially Out Of Investigative Journalism

Given CNN's history of biased coverage of President Trump, it seems clear to us that, based on the results of the numerous studies the MRC has conducted on the network, CNN long ago got out of the investigative journalism field, it has just taken Jeff Zucker all this time to admit it.

The End of the Collusion Fantasy

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

A patriotic liberal would set aside personal and political hostilities and celebrate the vindication of his president. We're not seeing this because the loudest of President Trump's detractors — especially in the press — are radicals, not liberals, and they're quite willing to endure existential chaos if that's the price for Trump's removal. These self-righteous leftists who marched under the banner of "objective journalism" while advancing the overthrow of a duly elected president have lost all credibility. They have committed professional suicide.

Defining Collusion Down

W. James Antle III, The American Conservative

The Trump-Russia affair will take its next Clintonian turn in debating the definition of collusion. Trump world plays this game too when it suits their purposes, accusing the Democrats of colluding with Russian sources for the Christopher Steele dossier. If we learn that Mueller discovered other previously unreported incidents along these lines, those who once put their faith in the special counsel will begin to argue he was too narrow, conservative, and legalistic in his definition of collusion. The public may get tired of this, but Democrats will be tempted to define collusion down.

Trump Russia Collusion Treason Was All Just Another Elite Lie

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

This whole fiasco has convinced Americans that there are two sets of rules in America, one for the elite and one for us, and that the justice system is just a scam designed to help the elite hold onto power by punishing those who would challenge its rule. That’s poison to a free country, which is probably okay with our scuzzy elite since it does not actually want a free country. It wants a happy-face dictatorship, and it wants to do the dictating. So, what next? What do we do?

What Did Obama Know and When Did He Know It?

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

When will Attorney General Barr appoint a special prosecutor to do some serious transparency — to look into the role of President Obama, Vice President Biden, Secretary of State Clinton, CIA Director John Brennan, FBI Director James Comey and all of his FBI minions? When will Chairman Nadler dig in and start some real transparent investigations? Asking among other things what role did all and each of the players in the Obama administration — beginning with the president himself — play in all of this serious scandal?

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.

We should all be celebrating the collapse of Hillary’s big lie

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

The end of Mueller must not mean the end of investigating what happened in 2016. It was, after all, the Clinton-financed Russian dossier that formed the basis of the FBI investigation launched by the disgraced James Comey that summer. How did that happen? How did a partisan dirty trick result in an FBI probe of the other party’s presidential candidate? And how did so much classified information leak, including the names of Trump associates picked up incidentally on wiretaps? Who in the Obama White House broke the law?

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.

Did The Establishment Media Have Any Credibility To Lose?

The establishment media has been leaning left since the 1970s. Trump gave everyone permission to acknowledge whose side the media is really on, and those outside the establishment are no longer bashful about saying they do not trust the media to provide accurate facts free from bias in favor of the liberal establishment.

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. Click this link to read Attorney General Barr's summary of the Special Counsel Report.

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.

The Mueller and Inspector General Reports Should Be Released Simultaneously

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The Mueller report and the inspector general's (Michael Horowitz) next report, the one that is supposed to deal with these disputed FISA decisions and related accusations of FBI/DOJ bias and their roots, should be published simultaneously, neither one redacted. That way we, the people who pay for both, can see if Mueller's investigation was worth our time and money or whether it was indeed the "fruit of a poisonous tree," as David B. Rivkin Jr. and Elizabeth Price Foley wrote in the Wall Street Journal last June.

Much talk that something is up with Mueller. Too bad nobody knows

Byron York, Washington Examiner

All Congress really knows about Mueller is the cases he has brought — the charges of lying to the FBI or to Congress, the charges, in the case of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, of tax evasion and other financial crimes, and the charges against Russians. There are also the cases he has not brought. He hasn't alleged collusion. He hasn't outlined any scheme between Trump and Russia. House Democrats, on the other hand, are totally transparent. They're going after Trump full-tilt from now on, regardless of what Mueller does.

The Fabrications That Almost Succeeded In Overthrowing President Trump

Andrew McCabe would have us all believe that HE believed the Steele “dirty dossier” and other purported contacts between the Trump campaign and various Russians or Russian-affiliated persons, even though he knew almost all those contacts were set-ups orchestrated by the Hillary Clinton campaign, the FBI and various other organs of the Obama administration.

Resistance rattled by 'no collusion' talk

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Frustrated by Republican control the last two years, followed, potentially, by the failure of both the Senate Intelligence Committee and the Mueller investigation to provide proof of collusion, bound-and-determined House Democrats will have to rely on themselves to come up with grounds to impeach Trump. That is one reason why the talk in the House today is of new investigations that will go where Mueller could not, and finally uncover evidence of impeachable offenses. If the Senate and Mueller investigations reach a disappointing end, Democrats might have to go it alone.

The Democrats’ Real Motivation For Opposing The Wall

We already know that the Obama administration abused the existing FISA protections and undertook surveillance of Sharyl Attkisson and many of President Trump’s political associates, and maybe even then-candidate Donald Trump as well. How long will it take before the Democrats’ surveillance regime moves beyond the border zone to encompass the entire country?

Spawn Of The Fake Steele Dossier

What research on the Steele dossier has slowly revealed is the scope and logistics of the information operation designed to sabotage an American election. Players include the press, political operatives from both parties, and law enforcement and intelligence officials.

The Crime OF Being Trump

The prosecutorial harassment of Donald Trump, those related to Donald Trump or in Donald Trump’s “circle” is an outrageous perversion of justice. What's more, the opprobrium heaped on the Trump family by the establishment media and popular culture has also claimed entirely innocent victims, such as Josh Trump of Delaware.
