What’s a grifting, conman of a GOP president to do when he starts losing even some of his more supportive voices on Fox News after a report shows 10 separate incidents of federal crimes were committed and talks of impeachment grow even louder than before? He quotes The Federalist, of course, as a source of support.
Trump is digging deep for support these days after Special Counsel Robert Mueller gave a press conference on Wednesday laying out all the reasons why he would not be used as a political tool and reiterating the facts in his two-year-long investigation. Most importantly, Mueller repeated publicly this line from the report:
‘If we had confidence the President did not commit a crime, we would have said so.’
That does not, in any way, mean that Mueller found no evidence of a crime, as Trump and his friends at The Federalist would like everyone to believe. It means, in fact, that while Mueller is legally prohibited from bringing charges against the president, enough evidence exists for Congress to open an impeachment inquiry. Should Trump lose the 2020 election, he can also be held accountable for the multiple instances of obstruction of justice laid out in the Mueller report.
There is also significant evidence in the report that the Trump 2016 presidential campaign was open to working with the Kremlin, although Mueller said he could not prove that “a broader conspiracy” occurred. However, simply the knowledge that a crime was being committed against the United States by a hostile foreign government without reporting it to U.S. law enforcement officials is, for anyone other than the president and his friends, sufficient proof of a crime. It should also be impeachable.
Twitter is done with Trump’s denials, so easily disproven. Read some of their comments below:
