Mueller Tried to Entrap Trump

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 5/31/2019 11:21:25 AM

Robert Mueller knew there was no collusion the first time he read the Steele dossier, which reads as if it was written by a high school sophomore who spent most of his time huffing inhalants behind the gym. (Snip) At the latest, the indictment of 12 Russians on 02/16/2018 should have been the end of his “collusion” investigation. Why did Mueller keep going? To entrap the president into obstructing justice, of course. Mueller had a plan. He would use his witchhunt to anger the president enough that he would try to stop the investigation and if he didn’t,

Comments:

Diabolical. Barr figured this out (as did many of us) and put a stop to it. Gensert explains just how Barr did that.

I listened to an interesting interview with Trump's lawyer (not Guiliani) who talked about how he confronted Mueller when Mueller was demanding an interview with Trump. He kept asking Mueller what he wanted to ask Trump that he hadn't already asked him, and Mueller couldn't answer, so no interview.

There is no reason other than entrapping President Trump in an obstruction of justice charge for the Mueller Investigation to continue after Mueller determined that Trump did not “collude” with the Russians to steal the election from Hillary Clinton.

Herr Mueller KNEW from the beginning that Trump was NOT GUILTY. Hence his attempt to entrap him in obstruction. There was NO crime to begin with, so how in tarnation could he be expected to obstruct what didn't even exist. Nixon committed a crime in Watergate, then attempted a cover-up. BIG DIFFERENCE! The only thing Nixon and Trump have in common is that they both were elected president. Mueller attempted to entrap Trump, but Trump and his team of savvy lawyers, outsmarted Mueller. Case closed!! At the outrageous cost of $40 million. EGREGIOUS!!

The ONLY thing Mueller and his team of vindictive Democrat lawyers are good at is entrapment. Process crimes. That's it. They tried to enrage Trump and goad him into doing something that could be construed as obstruction, but Trump wouldn't fall for it. So all he's left with now is this cheap stunt where he walks away leaving a cloud of suspicion hanging for others to create a storm from.

There is no need to charge him for his fraudulent investigation of Trump. Most people that have read it know that Mueller failed to compile any evidence beyond whiney gossip. Mueller looks like a failure and acts like a jerk. Instead, lets indict him for his involvement with the clearly ILLEGAL NSA database searches by FBI contractors when HE was head of the FBI. Then we can go after him for conflict of interest for ever accepting the prosecutor job because the database searches morphed into the Russia investigation. Mueller was involved at the start of the illegalities he was charged to investigate. He can share a cell will his "higher loyalty" buddy, Comey.

I saw Mueller's press conference live. I immediately remarked to my wife "something's wrong" based on the visual - the suit looked wrong and the tie was cockeyed. Not how he normally looks at all. Upon reflection, it looked like Mueller either slept in his suit, somebody woke him up, and he ran out to do the press conference because Barr was incommunicado on a flight to Alaska; or he had really gone on a bender the night before. I figure the former was more likely than the latter. Then I started listening to the sound. Mueller's delivery was shaky and his body language was like he was cowering. Sort of like he was a little kid, mommy's out of the house, and he's gonna steal a cookie from the cookie jar. He knows he shouldn't, does it anyway, and knows he's gonna get spanked once mommy gets home... Bottom line - tried to re-ignite the impeachment narrative and temporarily succeeded. Then mommy came home.

Mueller kept it going hoping that 40 FBI agents and 10 Democrat Prosecutors would find something. Plus, keeping it open allowed the Democrats to regain control of the House. That was a DIRECT consequence of a deliberately prolonged investigation.

The contrast between Mueller and Barr has been shocking. Mueller woodenly read his statement (that he likely didn’t write) and didn’t add or stray a syllable from it. I wonder how much input he even had in the witch hunt. Compare that to Barr’s calm demeanor. He was completely unfazed by personal insults from the likes of crazy Maisy and nasty Kamala. He didn’t even bother to offer a wise crack in return or twitch an eyebrow. At the very least I would have publicly thanked their husbands on behalf of the rest of mankind for jumping on the grenades of being married to those rabid females.

My long serving republican congressman repeatedly lectured me on the integrity of Mueller, as if I were a child, whenever I wrote to him asking why this Witch Hunt continued. Amazing that a rube like me in flyover country got it when this "professional" was clueless. But that is basically the root of the problem in Washington, isn't it......

Wow, what a revelation. Really? Mueller tried to entrap Trump? Geez, so since November, 2016 when it was obvious the deep state tried to entrap Trump, then in March, 2017, when Levin laid out in detail how Mueller and the deep state were in the process of trying to entrap Trump, and then for over two years, Hannity sold pillows as we watched Mueller do nothing but try to entrap Trump, Barr somehow laid low the blatant, open in broad daylight Mueller plan to entrap Trump? Holy cow!!! It must be true then since Barr figured it out! I know, let's do exactly what the DOJ and FBI did to Mueller when he was caught illegally and knowingly holding four innocent men in prison for over twenty years, PROMOTE AND REWARD HIM!! Then we can listen to four guys on the radio for another two years tell us that the deep state shouldn't keep being rewarded for their broad daylight crimes but should be indicted, tried, convicted, and jailed. Say, I just figure that out. I must be a freaking genius!

I think it was Mark Levin that made the point that if Mueller couldn't indict Pres. Trump for obstruction, then why didn't he indict anyone else with obstruction, like his staff or family? Supposedly the President did all this obstruction alone? Presidents don't do anything totally alone. Mueller was out to get the President from day one, along with Comey and all their cohorts at the Not So Much Justice Dept.

What irks the hell out of me is these so-called "special" inquisitors who keep on plowing ahead setting up all these process crimes long after they KNOW that they have no case on the original predicate they are tasked with investigating. Mueller is just the latest. Prior to that we had Fitzpatrick schlepping around trying to take down Dick Cheney and having to settle for Scooter Libby when he knew from Day One that Richard Armitrage outed Valerie Plame whose identity was not even protected. Scooter Libby's crime? His account of a conversation didn't jibe with Tim Russert's account and Fitz determined that Russert's was the bona fide account. Meanwhile all the individuals ensnared in the investigation are out thousands of dollars in legal fees and likely wind up with a felony conviction.

In his muddled, obfuscatory farewell remarks, Special Counsel Robert Mueller strongly suggested that, although he and his cohort of Hillary Clinton acolytes had reached no conclusion as to whether President Trump had obstructed justice, Congress should address that question by means of the impeachment “process.” Why? Because Team Mueller had not been able to “exonerate” the President. But exoneration is a non-legal standard which completely inverts and perverts our system of justice which places the burden on the prosecution to prove its case.In every criminal trial across America, the judge instructs the jury that the burden of

Kamala Harris’ first significant political role was an appointment by her powerful then-boyfriend Willie Brown, three decades her senior, to a California medical board that has been criticized as a landing spot for patronage jobs and kickbacks. Then 30, Harris was dating 60-year-old Willie Brown, at the time the Democratic speaker of the California State Assembly, when he placed her on the California Medical Assistance Commission in 1994. The position paid over $70,000 per year, $120,700 in current money, and Harris served on the board until 1998.
