After two years of silence, former special counsel Robert Mueller III spoke. Now that he has separated from the Department of Justice (DOJ), he first warned the American people and Congress that Russia’s military attacked the U.S. Then, Mueller blew Trump’s Roy Cohen Attorney General William Barr out of the water. In essence, he said Trump committed a crime of obstruction and maybe more. Russia threw the election to POTUS, and the Trump campaign welcomed the help with open arms. The president has been so upset with Mueller’s words, he betrayed himself in a tweet.
The commander-in-chief does not operate out of logic, but purely emotion and native cunning. Only logic saves us from insanity. In an impassioned early morning tweet, Trump betrayed his dark angel, Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying “I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected.” Soon after, he retracted those written words, but in the tweet, Trump frothed:
‘Russia, Russia, Russia! That’s all you heard at the beginning of this Witch Hunt Hoax…And now Russia has disappeared because I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected. It was a crime that didn’t exist. So now the Dems and their partner, the Fake News Media,…..’
Still upset the day after Mueller’s press briefing, Trump met with reporters on his way to his helicopter, as he often does. When a reporter asked about what he said in his tweet, Trump said no, Russia did not help him win.
He was on his way to deliver the commencement address at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. In a chant that was reminiscent of The Brady Bunch’s “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia Trump, The Boston Globe reported that he said:
‘Russia, Russia, Russia! That’s all you heard at the beginning of this Witch Hunt Hoax…And now Russia has disappeared because I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected. It was a crime that didn’t exist.’
Mueller’s first words were that the Congress and every American should be very worried about the Russian military’s attack on our country. Trump tried to cloud the former special counsel’s wording.
However, the 74-year-old Mueller did find strong evidence that Russia attacked the nation during the 2016 election and implied that was just a trial run for 2020. The man who occasionally sits in the White House closed the office in his administration responsible for investigating cyber attacks. Plus, Trump has done nothing to respond to his good friend Putin for that attack. Neither has the commander-in-chief set up any special central investigative panel to deal with the foreign attack. Perhaps, Trump would like more help in the next presidential campaign?
Mueller explained that there was no way that he or anyone in the Department of Justice (DOJ), emphasis on the DOJ, could indict the president. He said it was “not an option” due to existing federal rules forbidding it. As the head of the DOJ, Attorney General William Barr would be included in that statement.
Then, the former special counsel said he did not exonerate the president, because he could not. However, Mueller emphasized that he could not declare Trump free of guilt. In layman’s terms: POTUS is guilty as sin.
Trump continued with the White House reporters, saying that the Russians wanted the U.S. to elect his presidential opponent Hillary Clinton. Of course, there was no evidence of that at all:
‘Russia didn’t help me at all. Nobody has been tougher (on Russia) than me.’
