The Mueller Report Fall Out:
Amazing how Bob Mueller went from the saint who will tell the truth, to just another guy who was duped. The Democrat conspiracy theorists just can’t accept that the President did not collude with the Russians and to some is a foreign agent. Now they want to read the report. Some actually think AG Barr is misleading them, as if Mueller would not speak up.
Now when the report is released they’ll look at what was investigated and say “see there was collusion”, ignoring that Mueller and team thoroughly reviewed it. The other tactic will be, “we can’t see it all with what Barr redacted”, as if it is being hidden to cover a crime. Sounds preposterous? Watch the per-cent of gullible people who believe them.
Act 2 of this now is get past the release and then start to narrow in on who started it all. The MSM is not covering this angle, but someone led the country down a path with a phony dossier because they either believed the President was a crook or wanted to over throw an election. This could get ugly and some big names may emerge. At some point the MSM will have to cover it, and not as an opposition ridiculing the effort.
Watch what Lindsey Graham does in the senate.
Watch what Michael Horowitz finds and says.
Watch what the new DOJ does and who they go after.
So prosecutors drop all charges against Jussie Smollett. Then he does a press briefing and proclaims his innocence. Actually says he would “not be his Mother’s son” if he lied about any aspect of the incident.
Then a spokeswoman for the state’s attorney’s office said the charges were dropped because Mr. Smollett forfeited his bond and completed 16 hours of community service. But he assured us Jussie was guilty.
That was followed by more strong rebukes from Chicago’s Mayor Rahm Emanuel and his police superintendent. Both were angry they were not consulted and the action taken.
What happened? No one knows, or is saying yet. It appears to us that political connections were involved. Remember the prosecutor who excused herself because of connections to Jussie and others? That is where the road leads. Will anyone have the courage to go down that path to seek the truth, or will Chicago politics prevail and this be buried? Bet the latter.
Foreign Policy News
More fallout from North Korea to keep an eye on. They have withdrawn from a liaison office that it shared with the South near the demilitarized zone since September. Its decision follows its recent threats to suspend nuclear talks with the U.S. Are things breaking down here?
There was some thought that the cloud hanging over the President with possible impeachment was hurting him in worldwide negotiations. Now that he is cleared and reelection seems more likely let’s keep an eye on foreign policy.
The other major move was to officially recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan. Past administrations promised this, like they did Jerusalem, but never acted. Trump has kept his word.
You know how you hear the charge that the President and his family have profited from the presidency? We think it’s the opposite. We have heard the President’s net worth as declined. Then there is this on the Kushner family business
CHARLES KUSHNER in the Washington Post:
“Here’s the truth about my family and our business”: “Jared’s service to the country has brought unprecedented scrutiny of the Kushner Companies from the media and government investigators. We are happy to assist with all inquiries, but I must note that we are already voluntarily adhering to the strictest standards to avoid even the appearance of conflicts. As a result, we have passed up many business opportunities that we normally would have pursued. That might not be as alluring as some of the crazy stuff I read about my family and our business. But it happens to be the truth.”
Do The Democrats Still Want To Impeach?
Yes, they do. Congressman Greene was clear yesterday. Then add this
A FRESH IMPEACHMENT PUSH … REP. RASHIDA TLAIB (D-MICH.) has started circulating a letter that asks for co-sponsors to sign onto a resolution “to inquire whether President Trump committed impeachable offenses. Congress can provide an open and transparent process with the sole goal of ensuring we know the truth and make sure it does not continue, nor happen again.” The letter was sent around Monday night by Tlaib’s office.
— WHAT TLAIB WANTS INVESTIGATED: “Whether the actions of President Trump and his businesses violate the Foreign Emoluments Clause. Through President Trump’s businesses in the United States and abroad, the president has received payments, regulatory approval, and other forms of direct and indirect financial benefits from foreign governments.
“Whether President Trump committed crimes to defraud the United States by directing Michael Cohen to make illegal payments to interfere and affect the 2016 Presidential election, which has eroded faith in elections and perpetuated political corruption.
“Whether the Special Counsel’s evidence on obstruction of justice pertaining to the President’s actions and intents violates federal law. We all swore to protect our nation, and that begins with making sure that no one, including the President of the United States, is acting above the law. I urge your support in recommending that the House Committee on Judiciary begin hearings, take depositions, and issue subpoenas to answer this question that is fundamental to the rule of law and the preservation of our democracy.”
— THE RESOLUTION: “Resolved, That the Committee on the Judiciary shall inquire whether the House should impeach Donald John Trump, President of the United States of America.
“SEC. 2. The Committee on the Judiciary or any subcommittee or task force designated by the Committee may, in connection with the inquiry under this resolution, take affidavits and depositions by a member, counsel, or consultant of the Committee, pursuant to notice or subpoena.
“SEC. 3. There shall be paid out of the applicable accounts of the House such sums as may be necessary to assist the Committee on the Judiciary in conducting the inquiry under this resolution, any of which may be used for the procurement of staff or consultant services.”
— THIS WILL BE AN INTERESTING TEST of the support of impeachment post-Mueller. But, in the end it is up to the voters to fix this.
