Mueller offers sly impeachment bait

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 5/29/2019 11:06:42 AM

Robert Mueller’s 11 AM statement to the media today stuck to what was in his report (which he said “speaks for itself”), but selectively highlighted and sequenced points intended to damage President Trump, providing obvious bait for impeachment proceedings. . Here is one example: …if we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so. We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime. It is not the job of prosecutors to state that a suspect “clearly did not commit a crime,”

I suspect the pace of declassification and naming of names will increase dramatically. The outgoing slap may be passed along.

Funny how Her Mueller isn't asking for a declassification...? Barr let this happen because he's ready to pounce with the TRUTH...! Dems think the next step is impeachment, when it's going to be IG Report & declass. Good night, Nadler.

Muellie seems to take it personal when he can't ruin someone. However, Muellie left the door open at the end of his monologue when he expressed the opinion there was Russian interference in the 2016 election. This cuts both ways. He just set the table for AG Barr to continue investigating democratic collusion with the Russkies. Muellie's carefully chosen words do not in any way, provide cover for Comey, Brennan, Clapper. Strozk, Lynch, Billary, Obie or any of their drones.

Bob Mueller will have an opportunity to prove himself innocent when Trump and Barr start prosecuting the numerous crimes committed on the Uranium One deal while Mueller was supposedly running the FBI.

I watched Mueller's statement today and came to the inescapable conclusion that Robert Mueller is a man of very low character. We are now hearing about his time as head of the head of the FBI when he new that four innocent men were falsely imprisoned two of which ended up dying in prison and instead of having them released he let them rot in prison so as not to stain the reputation of the FBI. How he could stay in the governments employ is a mystery.

Instead of attempting to be cute, Mueller should just keep his slimy mouth shut and leave the lying to Comey. You can't prove that something didn't happen. I can't prove that I did not help the Russians spy on anybody either but I HAVE spied on the Russians. Is that okay with you, Mueller? Do you understand the difference?

Mueller said his hands were tied, why didn't he quit 2 years ago? He said he didn't have the authority to indict, but he did have the authority to recommend indictments. Starr said Clinton was guilty 11 times, Mueller never said Trump was guilty.Why didn't he take questions? Comey & Mueller are both speaking from the same play book, they are both cowards.

Robert Mueller has had a terrible reputation in the past in terms of those he has prosecuted, often ruining the lives of innocents et al. So why was he chosen as special counsel and, having been named, why did nobody question the fact that he hired nothing but zealots like Weissman and/or kept going even after he knew that the dossier had no basis in fact. He is going out with a bang, and I suppose Comey-Like sanctimony, with his 8 minute presser this morning, encouraging impeachment by the likes of Nadler et al. There is no logic here, and innocent beyond being proven guilty is not an issue for him.

Mueller was FBI director in 2012, and his rear end is in a sling with the spying/blackmail scandals of the Obama years. I believe this parting swipe is simply an attempt to label the coming onslaught of declassified information as some sort of retaliation.

The frustration builds every time one of these sleazy nitwits gets on television and does their tired song and dance. I cannot wait for the releasing of documents by AG Barr that will reveal without a doubt that Mueller and his buddies have been barking up the wrong tree for over two plus years. I want him to be held accountable for ignoring the real crimes that have been revealed during his investigation. He has instead focused on the guy who did nothing to interfere in the election, a fact he knew from the get go. This whole fiasco was manufactured by HRC and the democrat party in conjunction with the CIA, FBI, DOJ, and the cabal surrounding BHO. There would be NO Russian collusion without the dossier. It was Democrat conspirators who interfered with the election and then on top of that, attempted to unseat a duly elected President. And folks, they are not done yet. They are desperately trying to destroy this President. They are not in any way deterred nor do I believe they will willingly stop this nonsense. They have decided that Trump is the hill they are willing to die on and to that I say, bring it! AG Barr, I hope has nerves of steel and the required determination to see that the real criminals are brought to justice. The democrats are making a mockery of every legal and constitutional principle on which this country was founded. Allowing this to go forward will only bring more harm to this country. It is in the best interests of the country to reveal everything. Declassify every single document and let the chips fall where they may. We cannot continue to allow the dems/media to beat the President over the head with these false accusations. The country cries out for justice and we simply cannot allow the democrats to keep manipulating the narrative. It’s time to lay it all out there and let the American people decide.

Next we will be told Trump is presumed guilty until proven innocent. Mueller's statement came close. It doesn't work that way. Watch how our government works, people. Mueller suddenly pops up to offer testimony without Trump having any attempt to rebut what is being said. This is all bogus.

As a prosecutor, he has no right to say someone "is exonerated." That is not his job. That is the job of the judicial system, if anything. His job is to bring criminal charges if the facts and the law fit. Nothing more. He brought no charges. I don't give a damn whether he exonerates or not. What a slimy jerk.

U.S citizens are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, and as far as I know, Mueller and his band of partisan, vindictive henchmen, couldn't find any evidence. And as much as I know about Mueller, if there had been any evidence at all, he would have included it in his report, and recommended impeachment. It must jack his jaws every time someone, like Michael Wolfe, puts out a book with hair-brained ideas that he has to refute.

When I heard this morning that Mueller was giving a statement, I said "He just wants to hang another cloud around Pres. Trump". Danged if that's not what he did. He wanted to smear the President one more time, and as the headline says: give the dems "impeachment bait". He and Comey are both lying creeps that have been exposed by this entire affair. And he doesn't want to testify because Republicans will ask him why he filled his team with Hillary lovers and when he knew there was no collusion.

Herr Mueller has annointed himself judge, jury, and executioner in the court of public opinion, the facts and evidence be damned. The purposeful dragging-on of Mueller's weak "collusion" investigation was obviously a politcally-driven strategy to bait POTUS into impeachable obstruction offenses. However, when POTUS didn't take the bait (i.e., by actually obstructing the investigation), Mueller was left to defend a massive nothing-burger. A prosecutor's job is never to exonnerate -- only to evaluate available evidence and recommend action, yea or nay. Since Mueller is not recommending any action, the investigation and allegations are moot, criminally speaking. Instead, Mueller has chosen to stoke the political flames after/because his politically-driven criminal investigation fell flat. Despicable.

Mueller's bias on display once again. It is not a prosecutor's job to declare someone innocent. Their job is to decide if there is enough evidence to charge someone with a crime. Even if Trump couldn't be prosecuted while in office, Mueller could have said the elements of a crime met. Ken Starr did that in his report on Clinton. Does anyone think Mueller wouldn't have done the same, if he could? No one in our justice system is required to prove his innocence, yet that is the standard Mueller is using.

I eagerly await Mueller being called out on the spying that was illegally done by FBI contractors on Mueller's watch starting back in 2012. That spying later birthed the Russian collusion meme in an effort to cover it up. As an involved party in the mess, Mueller had an enormous conflict of interest and had no business investigating any of this. We need to remember this when he is on the line. "We cannot make a determination that Mueller did not deliberately take part in this political scandal." "However, he knew he was involved and should have recused himself from any investigations. Any investigative work he did should be considered suspect of prejudicial bias."

Maybe I am being too cynical but, I will be very surprised if the democrats do not proceed with impeachment hearings, some type of quasi-impeachment process or keep up the impeachment threats. Not because the president has done anything wrong. But because they are terrified of pending DOJ declassification and ongoing investigations into the who-what-when-where-how-and-why's of this whole "collusion" investigation. They need an issue that will provide a big enough diversion / distraction to drown out the likely exposure of misdeeds. Predictably, the mainstream media will be totally focused on the emotions of an "impending" impeachment. Any investigation and findings of AG Barr, IG Horowitz etc. will be ignored, treated lightly or swept under the rug. I hope not and I believe prayer can make a difference. We need to know the truth.

If there was a reason President Donald Trump chose the small Pennsylvania town of Montoursville to hold a campaign rally, no one in the media is saying what it is. In the absence of any answers, let me suggest one, admittedly more speculative than proven but a possibility nonetheless. In 1996, during the midst of Bill Clinton's desperate drive to become president, 16 French club members from the Montoursville high school and five of their chaperones died in the crash of TWA Flight 800 off the coast of Long Island. Although the phrase has been much abused, there is none better than "cover-up" to describe what followed.

My hometown of Minneapolis has been totally transformed by the arrival of tens of thousands of refugees from Somalis, one of whom now represents the city and a few suburbs in Congress. Nobody there was asked if such a makeover was desired by the residents; State Department officials decided that the generous welfare benefits available in Minnesota were reason enough to send people whose native land was tropical to the coldest major city in the United States. But now that the old 97%+ Caucasian city has been made into a multicultural exemplar, the local establishment, including the newspapers and broadcasters, is ultra-protective of its prized diversity-endowing Somali community.
