It’s like talking to a brick wall. House Democrats are so determined to get their hands on the full Mueller report that they are ignoring anyone who says that classified information in it can’t be released.
After making a barrage of threats demanding the full report, the Democrats voted to authorize a subpoena ordering that Attorney General William Barr give them the document. It was written by Special Counsel Robert Mueller who spent nearly two years investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to gain him the presidency.
To the dismay, surprise, and utter disgust of Democrats, the report found there was no collusion, according to Attorney General Barr. As far as the allegation that Trump had obstructed justice, Robert Mueller didn’t exonerate Trump. Instead, he left it up to Justice Department officials who found no evidence to support charges.
Despite many Democrats admonishing Trump backers for months to accept Mueller’s findings, they’ve moved the goalposts considerably since he concluded his investigation. They now say they won’t accept anything less than the full report. The four-page summary released by Barr is insufficient, they cry.
The House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday voted 24-17 to issue the subpoena demand. At the helm of this effort is Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler. He’s convinced himself and is trying to convince anyone who’ll listen that Trump is up to something sinister.
He waltzed up to the TV cameras immediately following the vote.
The blind hatred of Trump has led these politicians to put their own reputations at risk. Trying to get Nadler and Democrat sidekicks show their evidence is an exercise in futility.
Their questioning Mueller’s and Barr’s credibility comes on the heels of their praising the two men. Of course, that’s before they cleared the president.
Further showing their insatiable desires to impeach this president, they are ignoring the fact that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein agreed with Barr.
Remember, Rosenstein was thought to have considerable disdain for Trump. Why would he sign off on this report? Because there’s no there there!
No matter, both Barr and Rosenstein said the evidence was:
“not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense.”
Democrats who continue to talk of their “belief” that Trump did something nefarious, without presenting a shred of evidence are doing nothing but further damaging their own beleaguered reputations.
The Democrats have been itching to impeach Trump since the day he raised his right hand to be sworn in. They’ve not even made a secret of it.
Representative Doug Collins of Georgia, the top Republican on the Judiciary panel, said Democrats are “desperately searching for something on the president.”
They delusionally believe folks who support Trump will take with a grain of thought their unproven, unseen evidence that Trump’s done something so wrong that he should be impeached.
Legal scholars warn that releasing the report un-redacted would violate the law. Who cares, the Democrats seem to charge over their unprecedented request. They must scour the 400-page document and come up with their own biased opinions to impeach a duly-elected president.
Republican Mark Meadows, a member of the House Oversight Committee, sharply criticized the subpoena authorization.
For reasons that only the Democrats can explain, this subpoena came before Barr’s announcement that he’d release of portions of the report sometime this month. By Rep. Jerry Nadler’s own admission, it also came before committee members had even tried to discuss a resolution with Barr.
