And now my take on the Mueller Report
April 19, 2019
The Mueller report was released yesterday,
April 18, 2019. It's a shame it took more than
two years to come to the conclusions
arrived at in the report on the patently false charge of Russia
But, at least, there was a
conclusion from Mueller and his team of investigators.
One aspect of the conclusions,
strangely, could best be described as a non
conclusion – to be specific, a poisoned pill
that sought to keep the charge of Obstruction of
Justice alive and, thus, encourage House Democrats
to continue the resistance.
And indeed, the House
have already seized the opportunity by calling the pill their “road map” for
the impeachment of Trump.
Special Counsel Mueller was
charged to investigate two specific areas
affecting the 2016 presidential election, which
Trump won and Hillary lost.
aspects of the investigation were:
Whether there was collusion with the Russians
b) Whether there were Russian Interferences in
the 2016 presidential election.
the investigation got underway, the approach
quickly betrayed the nature of its
mission. Suddenly, the two
aspects of the mission became conflated into one:
Get Trump because he won.
The assumption was, it was collusion with
the Russians that brought Trump to power.
Funny enough, Hillary and the Democrats had
invented the "collusion" theme. It was
done soon after the 2016 election loss
- and long before Mueller and his team were
Was this common theme a shared
coincidence - a happenstance?
But it could be part of a plan
conceived by political rivals to get rid of Trump once he won the
Right from start, Mueller
and his team began their
investigation with a perception of bias problem.
None of the 17 of his
special investigators was a known
Republican, except, by hearsay, Mueller himself.
Thirteen of his investigators were
known donors to Hillary and the Democrat party
campaign of 2016.
One even served as a
lawyer for the Clinton Foundation; a brass knuckle bias
that went uncommented on by the Trump hating

the logic for investigation into a Russia
interference ought to entail more that one
target. In this case, Trump vs. Hillary.
So investigate both.
Hillary was never

whole process was on Trump, his campaign and
was scrutinized for Russia Interference as well
as the Collusion.
Media types like CNN, MSNBC, New
York Times, Washington Post, all liberal
outlets, provided enthusiastically so toxic an
anti-Trump atmosphere that made it impossible for sane citizens to question the investigators'
rationale and approach.

Mueller finding added to their frustration.

Why Barr and not Jeff
Sessions for the blowback?
Sessions, the former Attorney General who
recused himself and thus was a non-effective
asset for Trump, and Barr were Trump appointees.
Under Sessions, the witch-hunt, as Trump had correctly
described it, continued freely and truly in the
nature of all witch-hunts.

team came to a legal dead-end with the Collusion
as concluded by their report and read by Barr.
But, something was
amiss in the first part of the report. And and it was found in the second part under a new charge of Obstruction.
Though Barr had read
the points raised as none consequential to the
law, Democrats in the House of Congress
found reasons in them to continue the harassment
on the basis of Obstruction.
The report, in
part, was cleverly seeded with
accusatory crumbs and Democrats, who now control the
House, seized the opportunity to push for a
process, which they hoped would lead to Trump's

the road map they prayed for.
If ever there were a classic example of a
circular argument, House
Democrats and their collaborators had found it.
And what did Trump do
to deserve the obstruction charge?
He had vigorously
fought against the charge of collusion; a baseless charge
that sought to
destroy him, his presidency, his business and
his family. Not to expect him to do so
would be a violation of some law of human

majority, started. And a side of politics that

America kept unfolding.
No obstruction, but we are now comfortably settled in a police state
to find one.
Trump did not obstruct,
as Attorney General Barr found after reading the

Trump never once used the

having been turned down a few weeks earlier by
Trump to succeed Comey as FBI Director, ended
up as the Special Counsel to investigate Trump.
Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General,
who recommended that Comey be fired, had also
been accused by ex-officials of the FBI for
wanting to wear a wire on Trump to trigger the
25th Amendment; meaning cause Trump's removal
from office by a coup.

concluded, should cause sane men to wonder about the depth of the
conspiracy arrayed against Trump.

He did his legal duty by the way he handled the
For that legal
duty, Attorney General Barr became instant
public enemy number one for House Democrats and
some major media figures.
Why? Because Barr
was not behaving like Sessions.
The report said there
was no "collusion," but it was time to ignore Barr and the essentials
of the report itself.
So, Trump who
offered the Mueller investigators almost
everything, except a face to face interview with the
investigators, is now being set up by
House Democrats for possible charge of
obstruction for a crime that was found to not
have been committed; namely, collusion.
There was no
obstruction. Trump didn't fire Mueller. Mueller completed his
assignment in spite of the obvious perception of
bias hurdle that his pro-Democrat party
still continues under the obstruction theme, a theme
that has no crime base!
You wonder at this time who is
seeking to destroy America, her institutions and
presidency now; the Russians?
Or is it time to wonder
who had staged an attempted coup against a
constitutionally elected president of the United
States of America and failed?
