True to his word the attorney general will release the appropriate material as
stated in his letter to congressional leaders.
We all know what will happen here now the witch hunt is over by Mueller.... The
democrat party will continue it. They have gloated that they caught Trump in a
snare via Mueller. Now that nothing proved this ever happened they will pursue
their hunt to continue making their case. It is shameful so much
taxpayer dollars have been spent, especially seeing that Mueller did not limit
his scope to the issue of Russian collusion but went so many different
directions on taxpayer's dimes.
No further indictments connected with the Mueller investigation doesn't
mean there will be no more indictments . Mueller did his job now other
jurisdictions will begin to move in and do theirs. Stay tuned- the fat lady
hasn't sung yet.
I love all of the hot air coming from the Republicans here. Stop blaming Hillary
for everything. You tried for 8 years to lock her up and you couldn’t.
You never found anything wrong that you could convict her of. She is old news.
Move on. Stop blaming everything that is going wrong now on her. It’s been
6 years since she held any office. Give it up and accept how corrupt Trump is.
@Ginger MarshallOh, the investigation "turned a profit", did
it?Suppose the money can be used to buy more crab and lobster to be
served at congressional dinners and parties.(Please see a prior
article re same).🤔
Much to the Democratic hopes, apparently Mueller found nothing to report against
Trump. Some of the people who had helped Trump were found guilty of various
offenses, but none, so far against Trump. This has really upset the Dems who
were sure that there was some hidden facts or facets that would entrap Trump!
Mueller is regarded as being very honest even by the lying liberals, but
apparently he has suddenly become a pariah! The House is threatening to
subpoena him and his ruling! When people lie, it's wise to not do so too
loudly. When you do, you are usually found out! Somehow they don't seem
to realize that you can't make a lie be the truth! It'll always come
@worf:You said: "When are people going to see past the
deceit?"Russian collusion, man made climate change, Hillary
being shot at in Bosnia, etc."The evidence is clear. Deceit is
all around us!"My response: Why do so many people think
there is only deceit on one side? Both parties are full of deceit! Both parties
are corrupt, but in different ways. Trump, himself, is the king of deceit!
It's incredible to me that people are so entrenched in believing that their
side is always right, that they fail to recognize when their side is making
mistakes, too. Why does one party have to be right? Can't they both be
wrong together (but in different ways)?
Re: ". . . the Supreme Court has essentially rewritten the statue to require
intent to sustain a conviction [of Hillary Clinton].Laughably
false.The Roller, Gonzalez, and Smith cases all resulted in
convictions for grossly negligent disclosure of classified information. The
Supreme Court never overruled any of those cases. No Supreme Court or lesser
court precedent exists that repeals clear Congressional intent, or that requires
proof of specific intent for conviction of violating Section 793(f) of the
Espionage Act, [18 U.S. Code, Section 793(f)], merely gross negligence.Comey's fawning, exculpatory statement to the effect that no
reasonable prosecutor would indict Hillary is a transparent lie.
Herbert,I wouldn't be so sure this over just yet unless you
have seen the report, the sealed indictments and have insight into what the
southern district and the two other districts are investigating. But if Trump
somehow escapes unscathed, you Republicans should be able to talk the Democrats
through the problem since your guys spent four years and over 100 million trying
to pin something on Hillary and you failed. The Republicans witch
hunt of Hillary may have succeeded enough to keep her from being elected. Maybe
the Democrats will be able to bloody Trump enough to keep him from being
re-elected. You may want to wait a bit before starting your celebration.
Not sure how anti-trumpers can not come to the conclusion when facts like:Carter Page was the original target for the investigation that helped
spawn the steel dossier and Carter Page was not charged with any crimes.Steel Dossier, a unverified document paid for by trumps political
oponent.Investigation launched after Comey illegaly leaked govt fbi
docs to insight reason for a probe.Four fisa warrants obtained based
on the fake steele dossier to spy and record the trump campaign.Comey told trump personally that the dossier was unverified and salacious in
nature, yet used it to start the investigation anyway.No collusion
is found so deputy doj director rosenstain changes the scope to go after trump
associates criminal past and strike plea deals to get them to divulge anything
criminally tied to trump regardless if it ties to russian collusion.All indictments and convictions resulted from the probe had absolutely nothing
to do with trump or russia.The probe ends with no more
indictments.And conclude that this president, like him or hate him,
was investigated without probable cause or evidence, a crime in of its self.Someone needs to go to jail for this.
"Herbert Gravy - Salinas, CAMarch 23, 2019 6:15 p.m.@I M LDS2Whadya mean? Liberals have been celebrating for the past two years in
anticipation of Mueller's "findings"."I'm
pretty sure you don't even know any "libruls", let alone any who
celebrate what you claim. But it makes for more Faux/fake News, so just run with
it, right!Go Cougs!
@I M LDS2Whadya mean? Liberals have been celebrating for the past
two years in anticipation of Mueller's "findings".So
sorry it didn't work out. What will we be "celebrating" now.How we celebrate America?🤔
@RiDal: "The witch-hunters have finally had to admit that there is no
Witch"Mueller got guilty pleas from 34 people - including his
Campaign Manager. We don't know what the report says. There may
not be any more indictments. I believe Mueller did his job. Others say it was a
"hoax" so perhaps we can not trust the results. Who was it complaining
about Mueller not being elected? Maybe since he wasn't we shouldn't
put much weight behind the investigation. I'm willing to wait and see what
else we find out.Perhaps there was just a tremendous amount of smoke
around Trump, but not enough evidence to convict him of a crime. (He seems to
wiggle himself out of a lot of situations). We will see.But even if
that is the case, is that really something to gloat about? We should all breath
a sigh of relief that although our President is a vulgar, serial adulterer,
womanizing fraudster that surrounds himself with criminals and spends 1 in 5
days at his private golf resorts and a good chunk of every day watching TV and
Tweeting out degrading nick-names between trips overseas to prostrate himself
before Putin...they didn't get him for collusion!
Trumps haters are all making the same talkng point as the msm to save face, and
that is, a sitting president cannot be indicted per law and just because there
are no future indictments it does not exonerate trump?For the last
two years every trump hater posting comments made claims trump would be
indicted. Either I'am confused or trump haters are.It must be
awfully difficult for trump haters to reconcile the fact that this investigation
was a complete waste of time if knowing in advance regardless of the findings a
sitting president cannot be indicted, yet that is not what was reported by the
msm and all trump haters for the past two years.Especially when
former fbi lawyer Lisa Page gave congressional testimony admitting they had no
evidence for collusion before they started the investigation.Some
say there are the campaign finance violations between cohen and trump, unless
campaign funds were used it is not a campaign finance violation. Paying hush
money is not a campaign finance violation, dem sen John Edwards had a similar
case brought against him for hush money payments and he was exonerated.Trump has done nothing wrong, plain and simple.
No more indictments? Well, gee whiz.What about that "trumped
Those who are still complaining about Hillary Clinton's e-mail procedures
would do well to take a long look at Kushner's e-mail prodecures. As far as the Mueller report: He did what he was hired to do. No
lies, no fanfare, no name calling, just a thorough investigation of what
happened that was within the scope of his assignment. We need more people like
him. We still don't know what the report tells us. Chris
Stewart does not know, and posters on this comment board don't know.
It is finally over.The witch-hunters have finally had to admit that there
is no Witch. ...or at least that they couldn't catch any in the act of
flying their broomsticks. Great men are determine by how they handle
adversity. Donald Trump will now take his rightful place along Abraham
Lincoln as one of the two controversial and maligned Republican Presidents who
so enraged the Democrats, by simply forcing them to follow the Constitution,
that they tried to completely split the nation. Just like the post war
"reconstruction years" it may take decades to repair the rift now that
the sane people of America have preserved the Union. But Trump has weathered
all the storms and won yet again.
"Comey declared Hillary had 'no intent' but this is NOT part of
the law in this case. Whether she intended or not was irrelevant to whether she
should have been charged.."Not true. Even though the plain
language of the statute reads “gross negligence,” the Supreme Court
has essentially rewritten the statue to require intent to sustain a conviction.
This has occurred over decades and is plainly the law now.
National polls indicate that some 85-90% of the American taxpaying public wants
the Mueller report to be made available to the public. And as this article
notes, "a bipartisan bill has been introduced in the Senate that would
require the Mueller report to be made public." But the article quickly
notes that, once again, "Majority Leader Mitch McConnell isn't likely
to allow to come up for a vote."If McConnell isn't the
power behind the throne, I don't know who is. So much for "American
democracy"! McConnell sabotages our democratic ideals at every turn and
there seems to be no stopping him.
Calling "no indictments" a total victory is a hollow cry. Lies, indicted Russian agents, indicted advisers, prostitutes and other links
to the Trump campaign were all exposed, some strong and some weak. No
indictments is a pretty low bar for victory.
Incessant vitriol pushed by the left, the right, and the middle. Term limits
needed so we have citizen legislators, instead of professionals who promote
divisiveness so that they can hold on to their power/jobs.
Thid are you also going to call for Chaffetz, Jordan and the boys to do the
"honorable" thing and apologize to Hillary and the American people for
four years of investigations and over 100 million tax dollars wasted and finding
absolutely nothing? We haven't even seen this report but in two years over
30 indictments and or guilty pleas which is actually something. There are also
other sealed indictments and investigations by other agencies that will probably
turn into some more something.Before you say dossier and uranium
one, I am sure you realize that since your boys spent four years on nothing if
they had anything even remotely like proof they would had Hillary before another
This has taken so long, I can’t remember some of the details. There were
others indicted during this investigation. Were any of them indicted for
collusion with Russia? If somebody was indicted for collusion with
Russia, this wasn’t a waste of money. If that didn’t
happen, what was gained? If indictment was for perjury, you found out somebody
lied under oath during the investigation. Fair enough. But that wasn’t
the point of the investigation. If you didn’t prove that Trump rigged the
election, this whole Mueller project has been a major waste of tax payer money.
Perhaps we should investigate why a warrant was ever issued since
the dossier was known to be undubstantiated and paid for by members of Trumps
opposition. Hardly unbiased reason for a warrant.
The honorable thing would be for Schiff, Pelosi, Schumer, CNN, MSNBC, etc. and
the entire DNC to issue an apology to President Trump! Honor is simply the
morality of superior men and women! We will see how much morality they actually
I imagine the most likely outcome would be something similar to Comey's
press conference on Clinton's emails. Strong criticism of actions but
enough ambiguity that supporters will call it nothing and opponents will be
calling for indictments.
"Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah, tweeted that "early reporting appears to
confirm what we've been saying for over a year: no collusion or conspiracy
between Russia & the Trump campaign."Stewart, one of
Trump's leading sychophants, mistakes "early reporting" for
"early rumors." He has no knowledge of what's in the report."Rep. Ben McAdams, D-Utah, told Caplan on air, "I’m glad
to have this chapter over. I think, you know, there’s important work in
front of the Congress. I think it’s important that the public know what
happened and that the facts are known, but there’s important work for
Congress and this isn’t the only thing we’ve got to do."Positive outlook and non-partisan response.
The two year conspiracy by members of "deep state" to unseat a duly
elected President is now over...
2020 has nothing to do with trump and everything to do with democrats. If they
nominate a horrible candidate then trump could win.
I think it's wonderful, and gives America back its faith in the due process
of our laws. The progressives have loved having Muehller investigate every
single detail of the campaign, and now have NOTHING to gripe about.
Congratulations to the special counsel: you have given us back our faith, not
only in our president but America itself!
Pragmatistforlife- Comey declared Hillary had 'no intent' but this is
NOT part of the law in this case. Whether she intended or not was irrelevant to
whether she should have been charged or not. Hillary clearly violate the law
and should have been charged by the DOJ in the Obama administration. There is
nothing that changes the unvarnished facts that she should have been charged for
national security violations.
Once the Mueller reported becomes public knowledge you democrats will even have
more egg on your face.
To all who cry conspiracy or political investigation. Then cry out about Hillary
and Benghazi. Really? How much money, time and focus was spent on those
events. Dems and republicans hold about as much credibility in their arguments
against one another. Both are guilty of the exact same behaviour. Hillary was
not exonerated nor was Trump, ( even without seeing the report enough
information has been shared through indictments to know that Trump has
surrounded himself with corrupt people). This report is likely to spell out
unsavoury actions by the President, but just as Hillary not rise to an
indictable level. Both are as corrupt as the other. But I’ve always
had a question- Why when the Republicans held the house, senate and Presidency
did they not launch another investigation into the email scandal? The rhetoric
about it is deafening, yet no further investigation?Also those emails were
not isolated. They were sent to or from individuals. You can destroy your server
but you can’t eliminate them from those who sent or recieved. Clarity anyone?
Like others on this board I am not surprised at the outcome. Yes, there are
people around Trump that were found guilty and even in jail. And yes there is no
doubt the Russians meddled in the election. But seriously does anyone believe
the Russians would have trusted Trump if they were doing what they were doing?
In the words of Lenin, Trump was a "useful idiot". No way would the
Russians have included him in their plans.
Being Offensive is not against the Law. So many laws In this country anyway,
if there was a way to twist any law to charge him they will do it. When Party
becomes religion this is what you get. When we dig pits we also can fall into
@n8ive american - Oh, you read the report.... please do share what it says with
all of us.... please!
ute alumni - Do you just make stuff up? Hillary Barry are up next? For what?
Hillary was investigated four years, by five different panels and group. No
indictment there. So what are you thinking... Remember on the email side
Trumps own kids did the same thing. Are you going to chant "lock them
up" too. Its just so silly.I'm looking forward to seeing
what the findings are. Which ever way they flow. I just want the truth...
what ever that may be.Can't believe people are thinking this is
over without knowing what is in the report. Talking about blind allegiance.
They have absolutely no clue whats in that report.
Well, you can tell the DN readers are mostly Republicans and BYU fans -- because
on this topic, they have prematurely celebrated a non-existent victory!
We all know that HRC, FBI, DOJ, CIA had rigged the 2016 election in favor of
HRC. So the Mueller hoax was supposed to expose how Trump cheated to win because
they all knew it was rigged. He could never have won because the fix was in.
Well, what we just learned is that Trump won by a much larger percentage that
we'll ever know.The Trump presidency saved America for future
generations. The coup was stopped.
I consider Rep. Stewart's remarks to be both hypocritical and the worth
kind of political grandstanding. Hypocritical because he and his
fellow Republicans still hurl innuendos and accusations at Hillary Clinton over
things their own investigations could find no evidence for, yet he expects a
lack of new indictments to be seen as exoneration and if Trump isn't
implacated he expects everyone to drop it and move on. The worst
kind of grandstanding because early reporting tells us nothing. It indicates no
new conclusions, especially with prevailing wisdom being that a sitting
president can't be indicted. Stewart is putting the cart before the horse
and making a completely unsubstantiated claim.
@Mainly Me: “How many millions of dollars were wasted on this
farce?”The investigation turned a profit. The various fines
collected - including $46 million from Manafort - more than covered the cost
because Mueller investigations got convictions.
First of still declaring no collusion when the contents of the report are still
not public is at best intellectually dishonest. What you do know is there are
no indictments for collusion, not that there is no collusion. Secondly the claim.."Sorry to pop your balloon Democrats! As Gertrude
Stein said, "There's no there there."What a waste of time,
money and energy." is absolutely ridiculous with the success of indictments
and convictions that this investigation has generated. Even if some of the
convictions were "process" crimes, the investigation has openly
demonstrated that Trump is the leader of a hoard of liars, criminals, and
cheats. Including criminals that did involve themselves in foreign
conspiracies. Trumps legal worries are far from over. The scab has
been torn off of his business dealings, and he still has the campaign finance
crimes to deal with. Here's a prediction...that the
obstruction of justice issue will rise to the level of legality that the Hillary
Clinton emails rose to (for which the righties on this thread still scream
about), where provable intent is the point. See if they scream now.
The end of this sham of a presidency is near.
Notes to Democrats and fake news: How to clean egg off your faces! Step 1:
Splash your face with cold water and dry. Step 2: Once the egg is rinsed
off, splash your face with cold water to tighten your pores further. Step
3: Pat your face dry with a clean towel, and apply some soap (cleanser) and
moisturizer. Step 4: Repeat step one!"Don't worry about the
2020 election, you just did more to re-elect Donald Trump than the GOP ever
could! Thank you! Carry on!
Trump’s campaign worked eagerly to benefit from a Russian intelligence
operation that hacked his opponents’ emails and echoed them in phony
social media campaigns, an effort the U.S. government later concluded was aimed
in part at helping to deliver Trump the presidency. And investigators charged
that a succession of top aides then lied to pretend they hadn’t.“Isn’t it a remarkable coincidence — why are they all
lying?” said Robert Ray, a former independent counsel who investigated
President Bill Clinton. “Politics is one of those spaces where loyalty is
prized above most everything,” Ray said. “When you look at these
cases, it’s like everyone understood that — down to the lowest
staffer.”They all lied out of “misguided loyalty to his
master.”[ I cannot even imagine what this would be like if
this was Obama and his subordinates.]
Democrats have to much at stake in this witch hunt to say... Sorry we were
wrong. Nope that's not going to happen, they will turn on Robert Mueller
for not producing their intended outcome.
Has anyone here actually read the report? No.Does anyone here realize
that "No new indictments" does NOT exonerate Trump, since a sitting
president CANNOT be indicted? No.Does anyone here think that with so many
of Trump's top advisors indicted, he himself knew nothing about what was
going on?? Only if you live in la-la land.
"It seems like many people have forgotten that Mueller got Trump's
campaign manager, his personal attorney, and a bunch of other people in his
campaign."Mueller has become America's Beria. He
"got" people on charges that had nothing to do with Russian Collusion.
The perpetrators of this vicious hoax are cyberbullies and must be prosecuted if
America is to overcome the stain of the Mueller trainwreck. Rather
than starting at the bottom, AG Barr should start at the very top: Obama,
Clinton, Brennan, and Comey.
Trump 2020 confirmed!
They couldn't accept that their candidate lost, now they can't accept
that there was no collusion. This isn't about justice, this is about Trump
Derangement Syndrome. Time to move on, democrats.
Glad this part has concluded.
Couple of things. First, no indictment does not mean there will be no
information that is not murky; there may well be information that will allow
debate to continue, probably ad infinitum, ad nauseum. Second, had other
political figures on the Democrats side been investigated with the same vigor as
Trump, there would have been many sleazy figures indicted as well. I'm
surprised several high FBI officials who were fired were not indicted. After
all, if lying to the FBI is indictable, so should FBI officials who lie.
The Meliorist - CA, 00The Mueller investigation was to determine if
Trump colluded with the Russians, not whether all of Trump's advisors are
choir boys. Hillary Clinton's funding for the discredited Steele dossier
illustrates that neither candidate in the presidential election was standing on
moral high ground.
It's just amazing how many commenters on this article seem to know what is
or isn't in the report. I suggest we wait until it's released before
we declare its contents one way or the other.
The party's over, nothing to see here folks. Chuckles and Nancy are
speechless, this alone was almost worth the two and half years.
For two years we've been told by Democrats and the MSM to place all of our
faith in Mueller's investigation. Just wait and see! Now that we know
there's nothing in there, for the next two years we're going to be
told to ignore it. Pathetic.
I love the liberal social lefties Democrats spin this. It is obvious from the
comments they can’t read and comprehend or just want to perpetuate a lie.
They don’t understand the electorial process and the reason behind it.
This sets the stage for a yuge yuge landslide for Trump,
The investigation should never have happened. There never was any indication of
collusion. The beauracrates in Washington, who hate President Trump, have been
using our legal system as a political weapon. Which is a very dangerous
precedent. Also a lot of wasted money. Money that would feed a lot of hungry
children. I think Christ would say----ye hypocrites!
Nothing but a waste of taxpayer money.libs conspiracy is dead. Now that the
tables are turned prosecute libs to the full extent of the law. No collusion no
nothing. Hilliary Barry and team are up next. Pathetic
Well, this was a waste of time and money! The Democrats and the late John
McCain should be ashamed of themselves.I hope that President Trump
now orders the investigation of Hillary Clinton and the rest of the corrupt
liberals who have, for the past 2 years have done nothing to make our country
worse. I never seen such a group of sore loser crybabies. I hope
that The President wins another term and shows these folks what a real American
can do. So far he's done plenty for the country and he puts America first.
What we know. Numerous indictments of various members of Trumps inner
circle. Some who have passed in and out of his life for years. Russia
meddled in the 2016 election. Trumps associates had very close contact to Russia
numerous times.Trumps associates lied numerous times about their contacts
with Russians. The report will not exonerate Trump. But it seems the
report will not find absolute evidence of campaign collusion to influence the election. The report will hammer Trump associates for
their questionable behaviour and ties. Trump has been named a co
-conspirator in a campaign finance fraud.This was not a witch hunt. There
was legal Basis for every aspect of the process. There is now a web
of investigation because of information brought up through this investigation.
38 charges, 6 indictments with 5 of those with guilty plea's and 3 of them
with convictions.I read one trump hater after another claiming these
charges and indictments as proof trump is guilty.Yet they refused to
listen to all of the fox news trump supporters posting comments how none of
those charges and indictments have anything to do anything with russian trump
collusion.Muellers says no future indictments, investigation has
concluded, no more indictments? Must be nothing to do about collusion.So far no trump haters posting comments......Crickets.
It’s clear most commenters here get there news from Fox. We don’t
know what’s in the report. Claims that it vindicates the President are
premature. I hope the report is released. If it isn’t, we can
expect more speculation about its contents for the next 21 months.
When are people going to see past the deceit?Russian collusion, man
made climate change, Hillary being shot at in Bosnia, etc.The
evidence is clear. Deceit is all around us!
The witch hunt is finally over with no president to burn at the stake. Well,
surprise, surprise...NOT! How many millions of dollars were wasted on this
Sorry Democrat liberals, it’s looking like it’s gonna be a bust for
It's been interesting to watch the news feed tonight on FOX and remember
how the Dems have literally fawned over Mueller during the last 2 years of
this investigation, and now with the news of no collusion, they are threatening
to subpoena him to testify before Congress. The Dems must know with
attorney, Weismann, as the lead prosecutor, if there was any Russian collusion,
he would have surely found it. In fact, there were 16 Democrat lawyers in this
investigation assigned to find anything they could hang on President Donald
Trump. A mounting $60,000,000 of tax payers money paid their salaries and A big
NOTHING in collusion with the Russians and no indictments!If these
Dems and news outlets were smart, they would leave this witch hunt behind and
cover the more important things pertaining to the safety and security of our
country, i.e. border issues of crime, trafficking, and drugs; the economy (which
is booming), healthcare, etc. If they keep beating the hate-Trump dialogue, I
think it will bite them in the heels in 2020. Trump-Pence 2020.
God bless President Trump and our country!
@Silver Stingray“Sorry to pop your balloon
Democrats!”I’m sure the Democrats will just take a page
from the Republican playbook and hold at least seven or eight more
investigations and hearings.
I rarely agree with anything Stewart conveys, but I do agree that every word of
the report should be released.
It seems like many people have forgotten that Mueller got Trump's campaign
manager, his personal attorney, and a bunch of other people in his campaign. He
also figured out how the Russians meddled in the election. He's turning his
report to the proper authorities so they can continue the investigations.
It is becoming more and more apparent that the Russians meddled in the 2016
election (an election so close the elected candidate did not even win more votes
than his opponent).We also know that Trump surrounded himself with
corrupt traitors. We know he paid hush money to an adult film actress. And we
know Trump has been trying to discredit the process of investigating the facts
of what happened.Nixon suddenly looks like an ethical choir boy.Columbia, how thou hast fallen.
There will be some who won't accept the report no matter. Their hatred of
Trump will be greater than any non - collusion conclusion. But they will just
have to get over it
I wonder if Mueller feels that he has aided democracy in any way. This entire
investigation was a political event pursued to denigrate the President. And in
the end it appears to be another failed witch hunt.
Sorry to pop your balloon Democrats! As Gertrude Stein said, "There's
no there there."What a waste of time, money and energy.
A big nothing burgerCNN can sign off now.. they will have nothing to
report on for the next 2 yearMaybe they can switch to 24 hour
weather formatWe need another weather channel
Mueller has probably worked 10 hours a week on this for nearly 2 years and most
likely regrets taking this upon himself.
Well, well, well.....no more indictments? Ha!
I suppose this is it. We finally get to see what we have so far! Let’s
see what the report says and see how it holds up. Trump may be guilty of
collusion according to the report or Trump may have his name cleared once and
for all (although whether this improves his chances of winning another
presidential term is probably very debatable). Either way, I am glad we can
finally put an end to all the madness that came from the whole investigation.
