Russiagate Ends: Mueller Finds No Russia Collusion, Barr Sees No Obstruction

Donate

Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill have received a four-page letter from Attorney General William Barr which concludes that “The Special Counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 Presidential election.”

Of course, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) – who chairs the House Judiciary Committee (and has already fired up the post-Mueller “witch hunt”) notes that “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.

As far as Obstruction – Mueller has left it to the Attorney General to “determine whether the conduct described in the report constitutes a crime.”

Except – Barr sees no obstruction – writing in conjunction with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that they “concluded that the evidence developed during the Special Counsel’s investigation is not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense.”

Mueller’s team of approximately 40 FBI agents issued over 2,800 subpoenas, executed “nearly 500 search warrants,” and “obtained over 230 orders for communication records. They also issued 13 requests to foreign governments for evidence and interviewed approximately 500 witnesses.

While the full report could include damaging elements which don’t rise to the level of criminal charges, Trump is certainly projecting the “all clear,” tweeting on Sunday “Good Morning, Have A Great Day” – after hitting the links with musician Kid Rock on Saturday at Trump International Golf Club.

Russiagate Ends: Mueller Finds No Russia Collusion, Barr Sees No Obstruction

Both Democrats and Republicans have called for the full public release of the long-awaited report, which notably did not include any new indictments – which sent Democrats into fits over the weekend as Republicans celebrated what appears to be a big win.

On Saturday, 18 state attorneys general joined together to urge the Justice Department to publicly release the final report.

“As the top law officers in states across the country, we strongly urge United States Attorney General Barr to immediately make public the findings of the Mueller investigation,” reads the statement. “The American people deserve to know the truth.”

It’s likely that Democrats want to see the entire report in order to pick up on any wrongdoing that may have occurred, yet did not rise to the level of a chargeable offense.

While Mueller apparently did not find anything else that rose to the level of a prosecutable crime (or has handed off aspects of the investigation to federal prosecutors), journalist Paul Sperry notes that the Special Counsel investigation also failed to yield any indictments on the left.

Democrats, meanwhile, are still holding out for the “fat lady” to sing based on the notion that aspects of the investigation were handed over to New York prosecutors.

The only question – where will the left move the goal posts when this is all said and done?

      Well said from a braindead American. Both Trump and Hillary are supported both AIPAC. What the hell do you people not understand? All of your presidents are traitors and your next president will be too…

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      ignorance in this case as the one you have, it is not a blessing. Stop been a political animal and try use the grey matter, if you have any, between your ears kid.

  • ColinNZ

    Just as with the Brexit farce in the UK, Russiagate has shown the self-serving corrupt politicians for what they truly are, and I think the rate at which western populations are waking up to this reality is accelerating as a result (and for that we can be grateful). The sooner the anglozionist empire collapses the sooner the corrupt institutions can be dismantled and the occupants finally made accountable. Where’s my yellow vest !

  • Lazy Gamer

    With all the fishing expedition and side indictments on Trump’s circle, it is surprising to see that Mueller stuck only to the Russian collusion issue.
    I feel that we’ve all been played by the Trump-Mueller show. Lol And i pity the ones who got loads of charges as they were used as a distracting goat

  • Snowglobe

    Here is the ticking time bomb from the report. It is easily overlooked.

    “During the course of his investigation, the Special Counsel also referred several matters to other offices for further action.”

  • Saddam Hussein

    This has just been a media stunt to distact the American public from important matters, like how shit their economy really is and how their taxes are being waste in wars for Israel.

    • Wraith

      Hey Sadaam, remember how you had the most powerful military in the Middle East during the Gulf War (1991) and Invasion of Iraq (2003)? Then howcome the US Military literally defeated you into submission in less than 6 months during 1991? And invaded and toppled your government in less than 2 months in 2003? :D Literally the entire Iraq Army surrendered in both wars. You were simply no match for a modern military force like America, and still aren’t

      • MichaH

        Mainly Agree, but the 6 trillion dollars could have been used in a better way, to the real benefit of the american citizens.

    • Wraith

      Gulf War Losses (6 months)
      US Military: 292 soldiers, 60 tanks/apcs
      Iraqi Army: 50,000 soldiers, 8000 tanks/apcs
      Iraqi Invasion losses (1 month)
      US Military: 192 soldiers, 10 tanks
      Iraqi Army: 35-45,000 soldiers, thousands of tanks/apcs
      Conclusion: US Military is the strongest in the world

        Ofcourse, it is the strongest when it is war with a weak adversary. Hey, the Russians are too arrogant for my linking, CAN USA DO ANYTHING ABOUT THAT? NO, IT WILL BE A BLOODY NOSE FOR US OF A.

        • Kandinski

          You kiss USA asses most of the time. And what is even more pathetic, you are USRAEL SERVICE.

      • Kandinski

        Are you owner of Oil company? if you are not, better remove your pathetic “supremacist” aggressor and hypocrite ass.

        • Wraith

          Just pointing out how a seeming “Invincible Most powerful Arab Army of 700,000 soldiers strong” Got completely whacked twice in less than 6 months, losing a combined 100,000+ soldiers and losing over 10,000 rusty T-72/T-62/T-55/BTRS/BRDMS

  • Tommy Jensen

    Mueller have not been digging deep enough. The golden shower story is also missing in the report.
    The Trump team is said to have showed a video film to Mueller about JFK where JFK was shot from a complete new angle never seen before.
    Hereafter Mueller broke down and removed Trump´s golden shower scene from the files.
    That means Democrats, liberals and those we must not name, could walk around in a political desert the next 40 years.

  • Promitheas Apollonious

    of course there is no russian gate. Now trumpet is on his knees sucking zionist c*ck and beside the stunt with jerusalem, is recognizing also golan as israeli territory, among other things, is about to become the perfect zionist puppet for the job.

  • Wraith

    As I’ve said for almost 3 years, this whole collusion story was a LIE and fabrication. Plain and simple. Trump was chosen not only by the American People, but by God himself to protect the nation, defend our greatest ally Israel, and bring peace and stability to the entire world! MAGA!

      15 ¶ See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;
      16 In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.
      17 But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;
      18 I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.
      19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
      20 That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.

      According to the text in the Torah, the Jews are doing evil in the sight of the Lord. As it seems you people are struggling to uphold the Laws of Moses. You tried to disregard the evil you have done after Moses died, i.e worshipping Baal and other idol gods while breaking other Laws of Moses, which why you follow the first 5 books. Whether in the Torah, New Testament or The Holy Quran, Israel’s days are numbered. It’s been written.
