The Mueller Investigation: One Year Later

Written by Onan Coca

On Thursday the nation marked the one-year anniversary of the start of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into so-called “Russian collusion” in the 2016 presidential election.

The President took to Twitter to mark the anniversary with his usual expert sarcasm, congratulating the nation for surviving the first year of the investigation. He also reminded everyone that while there is no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, the last year has provided copious amounts of evidence of Democrat-Obama-international government collusion against the GOP.

Over the last year, Mueller has indicted 23 people, gotten a couple of folks to plead guilty to a series of crimes and gotten the media and their friends on the left to support his efforts as “honorable,” and “necessary.”

Odldy, none of the people who have pled guilty to any crimes actually committed a crime connected to the election, collusion, or Donald Trump.

In fact, the only people to be indicted on a charge related to the 2016 election recently arrived in court and pled “not guilty.” The move so surprised the Mueller team that they had to beg for a continuance from the judge because they weren’t actually read to go to trial! 

Joe DiGenova explained this on Fox News recently

Former U.S Attorney for the District of Columbia Joe diGenova said Special Counsel Robert Mueller was “not ready” to be called into court by Russian interests he previously indicted.

DiGenova said that at least one of the more than a dozen Russian individuals and companies Mueller indicted earlier this year effectively called his bluff on holding further litigation.

DiGenova said Mueller likely indicted the Russian interests because he “needed something Russian” to be charged in his probe, and that since they are from another country, they would be unlikely to fight back.

“One of the Russian companies sent them to court [over the charges],” diGenova said, adding that Mueller’s team then “objected strenuously” to that news.

Tucker Carlson asked if such a situation could be bad for the probe into President Donald Trump.

DiGenova said the judge in the Russians’ case told Mueller it must now go to trial since the defendants are willing to litigate.

He said the Russian company wants “a lot of [legal] discovery,” which could include documents and the like.

DiGenova said the probe has now become Deputy Attorney General “Rod Rosenstein’s monster-in-spades.”

So, what has the last year profited us?

Nothing.

After one year of Mueller investigating, and more than two years of the intelligence community (FBI and DOJ) investigating, there is STILL NO EVIDENCE that President Trump did anything wrong during his campaign for the White House.

Moreover, there appears to be NO EVIDENCE that any of his subordinates acted in an illegal or immoral fashion either. Mike Flynn and Paul Manafort have both been brought up on charges unrelated to any of their work with Trump (Manafort’s alleged crimes are a decade old), and the reality is that the longer this goes on the more we have come to learn that the Trump Team have not been the criminals in the situation, but the victims!

It’s long past time to end the farce and to bring Mueller’s investigation to a close. The nation has suffered enough because of Democrat lies and the rumor mongering from leftist intelligence community leaders (like John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey, and Andrew McCabe). 2017 was a really good year for America, and 2018 is shaping up to be even better… let’s stop looking for trouble where it doesn’t exist and focus our efforts on places that need it.
