Attorney General Barr: “No collusion” by President Trump – or anyone – with Russian hacking of American elections

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Democrats are furious this morning after Attorney General William Barr re-iterated time and again at a press conference that there was no collusion between President Trump’s campaign and Russian hackers who tried to influence the 2016 election.

“So that’s the bottom line,” Barr said at a press conference held ahead of the release of a coveted report from Special Counsel Rober Mueller. “After nearly two years of investigation, thousands of subpoenas, hundreds of warrants and witness interviews, the special counsel confirmed — the Trump campaign nor any other Americans colluded,” with the Russians.

Democrats are furious as they claim Barr is acting as President Trump’s lawyer or spokesman rather than the country’s impartial Attorney General.

Senator Elizabeth Warran said, “The AG is supposed to serve as the country’s top law enforcement officer – someone who stands up for the rule of law & defends the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign or domestic. William Barr is standing up for only one person: the President of the United States.”

Hawaiian Senator ‏Mazie Hirono said, “At his press conference today, Bill Barr once again opened his mouth and Donald Trump’s words came tumbling out. What a farce. We need to hear directly from Robert Mueller.”

Democrats are already demanding that Mueller himself testify before Congress.

Representative Jerry Nadler said, “It is clear Congress and the American people must hear from Special Counsel Robert Mueller in person to better understand his findings. We are now requesting Mueller to appear before House Judiciary as soon as possible.”

    Mueller has been a puppet for the democratic party. He will soon disappear like eric “the gun runner” holder did.

      How would a puppet for the Dems get the power that Muller had? He was appointed during this President’s term, by a Presidential appointee who was a Republican. His report was not an indictment of Trump’s collusion with Russian rather it said there was no collusion. In other words, he backed up Trump’s claim. Why would a dem plant do that Allen? He did say that Trump tried several times to obstruct justice and he is leaving that to other agencies to investigate. You snowflake republicans won’t be happy until Trump is named GOAT by every single person in the universe. And that will never, ever happen. He is a crook and a con man.

        If people were accusing me of something I didn’t do, I would try anything and everything in my power to stop it..and so would you. To claim Donald Trump was obstructing justice when he knew the collusion charges were baseless and false is dishonest..and you know it.

    Hang on to your shorts folks, the crap just hit the fan. AG Barr just offered his report on the Mueller Investigation and bascially said Trump is “free and clear” of any collusion or obstruction. So what’s next ? It’s time for the Democrats to have a “piss and moan” fit along with the Fake News Media saying this is not true.
    I think the real question in this is twofold or certainly should be. So, when will the Dems decide enough is enough and understand they have lost in this situation ? And when is it time to do something positive for our country ? and the answer is, NEVER. This Party has such an obsession spured on by the TOP DOGS in this Party and their hatred for Trump along with his success, they will never stop trying to remove him. And due to this never ending obsession which they are so involved in, they will never accomplish anything positive for our country.— So if you have followed my thoughts in my different posts, you can now understand one of the past posts when I declared we have two Parties in our nation. Good and Bad. And this is really a very poor situation for our country to be divided on when everyone could work together for the good of us all. Please understand, there are many good and great Democrats, but they are being led astray by bad influence by a number of bad people within and even outside the Democratic Party. ( George Soros & others ) I think many of these are good Dems are starting to see, nothing good for our country is happening on this Party’s behalf. 99% of Americans want what is good and just for our country and want things to go well. So all of us need to continue to be strong, stand up for our President and our Country and we will all help our President continue to Make America even much GREATER than it already is.

    Fight on, Trump – “You magnificent bastard”
    My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #Never Trumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum.
    They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.” Here’s my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship.
    This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.
    I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds simply because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.
    I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks. I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

    The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ’60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one of the violent take-over of the universities till today.
    The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety. With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America ‘s first wartime president in the Culture War.
    During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in warriors. Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming.
    Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today. Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights…”

      …the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.” that statement right there so how full of crap you are. Do you remember Richard Nixon? Do you remember Dick Cheney? (If not, go see Vice). Do you remember WMDs in Iraq? Do you remember McConnell and his statements about doing everything possible to make Obama a one term President? Hypocrisy is in full bloom in your post.

    General George Patton was a vulgar-talking son-of-a-bitch. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler and the Socialists would be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.
    Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastard, I read your book!” That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics.
    That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis.
    It is a book of such pure evil, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted.

    Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do. First, instead of going after “the fake media” (and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri) Trump isolated CNN. He made it personal.
    Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.” … Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position. … They need to respond. This leaves them with only two choices. They can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery. The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve.

    It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive.. Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s church. Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up.
    So, to my friends on the Left and the #Never Trumpers as well: do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”? Of course I do. These aren’t those times. This is war. And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years. So, say anything you want about this president – I get it – he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don’t care. I can’t spare this warrior. He fights for America! Fight on you magnificent bastard!

    Special mention was given to the time it took, the subpoenas, warrants and witness interviews, but not a mention of what it cost the American tax payer. Hopefully soon, the democrats will run out of piss and moan.

    as far as I am concerned if a democrate get elected in 2020 or 2024 on day one of his or her term a special counsil should be appointed and congress should move to remove them from office. because who ever get elected, from now on the standard will be from the other side they stole it from us. This whole 2 year thing has destroy the office of the president forever.
