That time leading Democrats promised evidence would point to ‘collusion’

THEY WILL FACE NO CONSEQUENCE FOR THEIR DISINFORMATION CAMPAIGN

Over the past two years of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into collusion with Russia by President Donald Trump’s campaign, leading Democrats have bet the farm on certain outcomes and hyped the “collusion” theory to all of America, with the help of the mainstream media. They said it was a slam dunk: Collusion and impeachment.

Today, Attorney General William Barr released a summary of the report. The verdict? No collusion. Pure and simple. If Barr’s summary is inaccurate, surely Mueller would have stated that by now.

Here’s a brief sample of what key Democrats have been saying to warp the public dialogue for the past two years. These are but a fraction of the “on message” unfounded allegations from sitting members of Congress in a coordinated effort to destroy public confidence in the president. In other words, actual collusion by Democrats:

COLLUSION HYPE

  • Sen. Richard Blumenthal: “The evidence is pretty clear that there was collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians.” (MSNBC’S “All In,” 10/17/18)
  • Rep. Adam Schiff: “Well, look, there’s clear evidence of an attempt to collude.” (CNN’s “The Situation Room” 12/14/17)
  • Sen. Ron Wyden: “I think there was clearly an intent to collude.” (CNN’s “Wolf,” 12/15/17)
  • Rep. Adam Schiff: “I think there’s plenty of evidence of collusion.” (“CBS This Morning” 08/05/18)
  • DNC Chair Tom Perez: “Over the course of the last year, we have seen, I think a mountain of evidence of collusion between the campaign and the Russians.” (Fox’s “The Five,” 04/23/18)
  • Rep. Eric Swalwell: “We saw strong evidence of collusion … I think that’s clear collusion.” (CNN’s “Wolf,” 03/16/18)
  • Rep. Jerry Nadler, chair of House Judiciary: “…we know there was collusion with people in the campaign with Russians.” (MSNBC’s “All In,” 10/27/17)
  • Rep. Maxine Waters: “And I am so depending on our special counsel Robert Mueller to connect the dots so that he can prove the collusion.” (MSNBC’s “All In,” 08/04/18)
  • Sen. Richard Blumenthal: “There are indictments in this president’s future,” (MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” March 21, 2019)
  • Sen. Richard Blumental: “Even more so now than ever before, according to the intelligence we’re receiving, we need to understand what Vladimir Putin and the Trump campaign may have done together, but also the obstruction of justice that was done by the president of the United States in real time.” (MSNBC’S “Morning Joe” March 21, 2019)

IMPEACHMENT/WATERGATE HYPE

  • Rep. Adam Schiff: “I think, of a size and scope probably beyond Watergate.” (ABC’s “This Week,” 05/27/18)
  • Sen. Richard Blumenthal: “It may well produce impeachment proceedings.” (CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” 05/10/17)
  • Rep. Jerry Nadler: “I think it shows that Mueller is in the old Watergate sense, following the money.” (CNN’s “Erin Burnett Outfront,” 04/04/18)
  • DNC Chair Tom Perez: “On a certain level, this is worse than Watergate.” (Fox’s “Trish Regan Primetime,” 11/08/18)
  • Sen. Richard Blumenthal: “It’s a Watergate Moment.” (CBS’ “This Morning,” 08/23/18)
  • Sen. Bernie Sanders: “Obviously, the suggestion is it goes back to Watergate.” (CNN’s “The Situation Room,” 05/10/17)
  • Sen. Ron Wyden: “That is almost a Watergate-level effort to interfere with an ongoing investigation.”  (CNN’s “New Day,” 06/08/17)

  • I heard the letter read on FOX News. Clintons and DNC were not cleared in the letter and they were commented on, not in a neutral or positive light either!
    LOCK HER UP!

  • “The second element involved the Russian government’s efforts to conduct computer hacking operations designed to gather and disseminate information to influence the election. The Special Counsel found that Russian government actors successfully hacked into computers and obtained emails from persons affiliated with the Clinton campaign and Democratic Party organizations, and publicly disseminated those materials through various intermediaries, including WikiLeaks. Based on these activities, the Special Counsel brought criminal charges against a number of Russian military officers for conspiring to hack into computers in the United States for purposes of influencing the election. But as noted above, the Special Counsel did not find that the Trump campaign, or anyone associated with it, conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in these efforts, despite multiple. offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign.”

    Yep hacked into Clinton’s e-mails including classified TS maybe higher! This ain’t over by a long mark, I HOPE!

  • So when will Hillary Clinton be indicted, along with her co-conspirators for this fraud? When will we see justice for the most significant corruption we just witnessed in our nation’s history? These conspirators are trying to take down a duly elected president, and destroy our nation. How much more are we willing tolerate as a nation, and when will we rise up against these tyrants?

    • Apparently never. One of the prongs of Trump’s campaign, “drain the swamp,” of which “lock her [and the rest of ’em] up” was the main part of, isn’t ever going to happen.
      This situation is toast. And despicable.

      • Larry and Newlife. Don’t lose hope yet. Now that this is done, at by Mueller (Congress will continue stupid), I’m betting the drain will begin in earnest. FISA, will now come out. The Pres holding off until he was exonerated, now Barr is free to go after.

  • The dims run their mouths, lie like a rug, besmirch, slander, defame, demean, insult and try to frame the President of the United States. What happens when they are all proven WRONG?? NOTHING!! They get a free pass and ramp up their insults, accusations and lies. I am very disappointed in the establishment repubs for letting the wingnuts get away with the disgusting attacks on our President. When the citizens are the only ones calling the dims out, something is very “out of gear”. Where the hell are the republicans? Aren’t they in the same “‘party” as the President? You certainly wouldn’t think so, from their lack of response. Bunch of spineless do-nothings. All run their mouths but almost none do anything, at all. Disgraceful.

    • Betting the RINO’s will be out in 2020, sadly we have to wait until 2022 to kick out Lisa.

      • There needs to be a grass root effort started now to ensure that Murkowski is reelected in 2022. She has been a disgrace to majority of Alaskans these last two years with her continued non-support of a duly elected President and the lies and manipulation of the mainstream media to deflect criticism from where it belongs.

  • Just take a look at the Clinton Foundation tax documents for the time Hilliary was at State. This is not a theory. Bill’s speeches are valuable because all that hot air keeps hurricanes away from Haiti. And look at how many ‘likes’ the State Dept bought on Facebook. Who were they trying to influence? History trivia, who had approx. 900 FBI files in her closet? Can’t we just moveon.org? Evidently not.

  • “it also does not exonerate him” ask yourself why Barr would put that in his letter. My theory is so this will drag out till the end of time. “It is not Barr’s job to make that conclusion”. That is a quote from a talking head on CNN, believe it or not.

  • I think its time to investigate all of the demoncrats listed above that kept this BS going and make them pay us (Government) back for what it cost!

    It’s disgusting that there are bunch of murkowskis in the Republican party. May this orchestrated exercise to take down a President wake up the Republicans and kick all of the RINOS out!

    MAGA

    • Mueller investigation made $ through fines to convicted republicans/MANAFORT.

  • In a Dems convoluted mind refuting an accusation is obstruction of justice. The collusion story having been unequivocally proven false the narrative will switch to “obstruction”. The President should tell them all to “stuff it, go ahead and impeach” which will guarantee his reelection when the effort fails.

    • Impeachment, good luck with that. Two presidents impeached and both kept the office. I never got satisfaction from Chappaquiddick or Tawana Brawley or White Water so I know how the Dems feel. Except there was more proof of crimes in those instances. Or in the case of Tawana Brawley, proof of fraud by the Reverend.

  • All these individuals are guilty of Sedition and Treason and must stand accountable

  • The 2016 presidential election has been OVER for 2.5 years. GET OVER IT, YOU POS DEMOCRATS. TRUMP 2020. BY A LANDSLIDE. BUILD THE WALL. LOCK UP THE CLINTONS.

  • Treason is afoot and has been for some time. This is a dark time in the history of our Country. This goes beyond bickering opposing political parties and has entered the realm of trying to overthrow the President by manufacturing evidence out of whole cloth. The leadership of the Democratic party is in league with the propaganda machine known as the media. If there are any Democrats left who love our Country they will need to purge those in their ranks who have tried to overthrow the rule of law and the foundations our Country was founded upon.

  • Laughing all the way to the bank: ROBERT MUELLER. Crying all the way to the asylum: HOUSE DEMOCRATS. Running all the way to her defenders: HRC. Wiping away tears all the way to 2020: THE MAINSTREAM LYING MEDIA. Running to victory all the way through 2024: DONALD JOHN TRUMP.

  • Oopsie! Whoops! Anyone want to bet that YouTube maintains their standard on not tolerating conspiracy theories on this one? If they did CNN and MSNBC channels would be going down like Alex Jones.

  • He paid a prostitute hush money with campaign money to shut up. Cohen is going to jail for this. Manafort, his campaign manager is going to jail. Flynn has pleaded guilty, Papodopoulos guilty….All investigated by life long republicans.

    • Seth Rich didn’t go to jail. Neither did Vince Foster.

      Who stole the DNC nomination? Who went to jail?

    • All the dead bodies from Clinton years. Gun running in Mexico thanks to Holder and Obama. 400 million in cash to Iran by Obama. Markie boy, you run with crooks, thieves, liars and criminals. Democrats are going DOWN.

  • Although I taste vomit in my mouth at the mention of Mueller, this has been dug all the way to China (figurative and probably literal) and the POTUS did not collude. Mueller is good at digging for stuff unrelated to the issue, just to make something stick. Trump’s great-niece twice removed must have jaywalked in 1973 so I’m surprised she’s not serving a 20-year sentence. The dollars pumped into this is astronomical. The Dems could have put all that money towards Planned Parenthood don’t they know? This isn’t over. The Dems will keep at it for the rest of this term and into the next one (Please do Dems – the more you act like Sophomores and the more AOC opens her mouth it gives Trump another electorate). So, keep it up Pelosi and company! America needs you to keep the white house RED.
