Robert Mueller Tag

Robert Mueller's statement today could have served only one purpose -- to breath life into Democrat attempts to commence impeachment proceedings against Trump. Mueller didn't add any substance to the 400-page report, and most of his statement was related to procedures, including his resignation, the closing of the special counsel's office, and his desire not to testify about the report beyond the report itself.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller made a public statement about his Russian probe. His last public statement came out in March 2017 when then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed him to lead the Russian investigation. He released his report on April 18. It showed that Russia tried to interfere with our 2016 election, but found no collusion between President Donald Trump's campaign and Russia. Summary of Mueller's statement? READ THE REPORT.

Remember when everyone on the left gushed over Michael Wolff's book Fire and Fury about President Donald Trump's White House even after he admitted it has parts that are not true? Well, Wolff wrote another book called Siege: Trump Under Fire, which The Guardian obtained. Wolff claimed Special Counsel Robert Mueller "drew up an indictment of Trump that named three counts of obstruction of justice." Mueller's spokesman immediately shot down Wolff's claims.

President Donald Trump granted Attorney General William Barr permission to declassify the documents related to surveillance on his 2016 presidential campaign. From Fox News:
Trump also ordered the intelligence community to cooperate with Barr. The memo read: "The heads of elements of the intelligence community... and the heads of each department or agency that includes an element of the intelligence community shall promptly provide such assistance and information as the Attorney General may request in connection with that review."

One of the first and most vocal #NeverTrump members of Congress, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) is now making headlines as "the first Republican" to call for President Trump's impeachment. So far, there is no indication at all that he is "first," it seems more likely he is the "lone" Republican making such a call.  Even Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) stated Sunday that the case for impeachment "just isn't there."

Attorney William Barr gave Fox News an interview while in El Salvador about the Department of Justice's (DOJ) investigation into the origins of the probe into possible collusion between Russia and now-President Donald Trump's campaign in 2016. Barr defended his decision to investigate the origins because he found the answers people gave him inadequate.

Former Deputy Attorney Rod Rosenstein and former FBI Director James Comey have ventured into a public spat over President Donald Trump and Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian collusion. Comey wrote earlier this month that Rosenstein did not have the strength to "resist the compromises necessary to survive Mr. Trump." Rosenstein lashed out at Comey for becoming a "partisan pundit" and showed disgust that the former director would speculate "about the strength of my character and the fate of my immortal soul."

There is no constitutional crisis regarding the House Intelligence Committee's unsuccessful attempt to get the unredacted Mueller report, including secret grand jury information, and the documents underlying the investigation. Disregard what Jerrold Nadler says about there being a constitutional crisis.

2020 presidential candidate Robert O'Rourke became the latest Democrat to call for Congress to begin the process to impeach President Donald Trump after the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report. From The Dallas Morning News:
"We're finally learning the truth about this president. And yes, there has to be consequences. Yes, there has to be accountability. Yes, I think there's enough evidence now for the House of Representatives to move forward with impeachment," he said in an interview with The Dallas Morning News. "This is our country, and this is the one chance that we get to ensure that it remains a democracy and that no man, regardless of his position, is above the law."

Attorney General William Barr testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee over the way he handled Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report. We all know that the Democrats desperately wanted Mueller to find that President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russia and he obstructed justice. Mueller and his team found no collusion and punted on the obstruction charge.

Outgoing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is no friend to President Donald Trump, criticized President Barack Obama's administration over its handling of Russia hacking in 2016 and called out former FBI Director James Comey at the Public Servants Dinner of the Armenian Bar Association. From Fox News:
“The FBI disclosed classified evidence about the investigation to ranking legislators and their staffers,” he said. “Someone selectively leaked details to the news media. The FBI director [Comey] announced at a congressional hearing that there was a counterintelligence investigation that might result in criminal charges. Then the former FBI director alleged that the president pressured him to close the investigation, and the president denied that the conversation occurred.

Last week as the Mueller Report was about to drop, Victor Davis Hanson of the Hoover Institution and the National Review Institute was interviewed by The Epoch Times as part of their American Thought Leaders series. He offered his thoughts on the Mueller investigation, the Trump presidency, and much more.
