With D-day looming ever so closely for President Donald Trump and his cohorts after the news that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had filed the first charges in the ever-widening investigation into basically everyone involved in the Trump campaign, Trump tried to tell people via Twitter that mostly everyone felt there was no collusion between his campaign and the Russian government to sway the 2016 presidential election. He tweeted:
‘It is now commonly agreed, after many months of COSTLY looking, that there was NO collusion between Russia and Trump. Was collusion with HC!’
That blustering vomit that came from Trump’s stubby little orange Cheetoh fingers, however, is a bunch of phony baloney – at least one senator feels that way. Senator Angus King (I-Maine) appeared on CNN’s State of the Union to speak with Jake Tapper. When asked by Tapper if he agreed with Trump’s sentiment that everyone “commonly agreed” there was no collusion, he had a differing opinion. King replied:
‘It’s certainly not commonly agreed in our committee, and we’re the ones doing the investigation. So, I don’t think he has any basis for that statement.’
What is significant about that? It’s significant because King is part of the Senate Intelligence Committee. They are the guys actually investigating whether there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. King also added:
‘We may end up, it’s entirely possible we’ll end up in the investigation, at the end, finding there wasn’t, but the contrary could also be true. Right now, as Chairman Burr said, we’re not talking about winding up for some six months. So, there’s a lot of work to be done, a lot of leads to be followed, a lot of witnesses to be interviewed. It’s way premature to say that some kind of conclusion has been reached.’
You hear that Trumpy? It’s “way premature” to even think you’re out of the clear yet. We know it’s easy for you to spout off a lie; however, take that as a notice Trump and Trump supporters. It isn’t over, yet. There is still plenty to do, and there is still plenty of chances some piece of evidence will put you and your cohorts away. For now, all we can do is wait eagerly for the first arrests to be made under Mueller’s first charges.
