After over two years of investigation and some $25-plus million of taxpayer expense, much of the Mueller report is now public.
Said report clearly stated that neither President Donald Trump nor any member of his campaign team were guilty of criminal conspiracy with Russia. After reviewing the report with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversaw the Mueller investigation, Attorney General William Barr declared in his four-page summary that Trump also was not guilty of obstruction of justice.
It is important to note that many of the attorneys and prosecutors recruited by special counsel Robert Mueller were not only Democrats but some also were financial contributors to Hillary Clinton’s campaign or Democratic candidates. One team member served as a lawyer for the Clinton Foundation on a case.
With that degree of bias, it is logical to assume that they were dedicated to finding a crime.
Recent action by Democratic House committee leaders — dissatisfied with the Mueller report — to conduct their own investigations means that a new “witch hunt” will take precedence over working to improve the lives of taxpayers.
It has become so ridiculous that House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler’s committee has voted to place Barr in contempt because he refused to submit an unredacted version of the report to said committee. In 1998, Nadler opposed the full release of the report of Ken Starr’s investigation of President Bill Clinton. This clearly shows that Nadler is as big a hypocrite as Sen. Chuck Schumer.
