Flashback: Remember When Democrats Said They Had 'Confidence' In Robert Mueller

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has finally submitted his years-long investigation into Russia collusion and Christmas has come early. There was no collusion between Trump, his campaign staff, or the Kremlin during the 2016 election. Trump is vindicated. We were right. The Left is wrong. Pop open the champagne, have a glass of Johnnie Walker Blue Label, grab some popcorn, and enjoy the liberal meltdown because it’s just as entertaining as their 2016 tantrum when they realized Hillary Clinton was never going to become president of the United States. There was no collusion, and Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded there was not enough evidence to suggest Trump obstructed the investigation. It’s a huge win for the country. It’s been revealed. Trump had ties…to America. Eat it, liberal media. Enjoy chowing down on that crow. Will there be a time when Y'all realize how much you just plain suck. The Trump train just bulldozed you. This is a win for the country, for the GOP, for the president, for all patriots, except the Democrats because they hate America (and now Jewish people apparently) and their allies in the media. 

Yet, Beth noted something odd about the statements from the 2020 candidates. Of course, the full report is going to be released…probably. Congressional Democrats and Republicans want that as well. It’s probably going to happen, along with Attorney General William Barr and Special Counsel Robert Muller being summoned to the Hill for a horsewhipping by Democrats because after two years, 500 witnesses, and 2,500+ subpoenas, the investigation found that there was no collusion.  From Lie-a-watha Liz to some white Texas guy named Bob O’Rourke, they all released statements demanding the full release, not a four-page summary from the AG’s office. Is it because they don’t trust Mueller anymore? That could change; the man didn’t bring any new charges against Trump. Yet, even when the full report is released, the media gave away the game. Nothing will convince these people that Trump didn’t collude or obstruct justice, despite zero evidence for one allegation, and not enough evidence for the DOJ to pursue on the other. Yet, on collusion, Trump is totally and utterly vindicated. It wasn’t too long ago that this 2020 clown car had nothing but the utmost confidence in Robert Mueller to get to the bottom of all this. Now, the media is pathetically trying to spin the obstruction bit, while the Democratic field waits to pretty much repeat what the media has been shoveling for the past few hours. In the meantime, here’s a trip down memory lane…to 2017 courtesy of our friends at American Rising PAC [emphasis mine]:

In May 2017, Sanders Said, “Robert Mueller’s Appointment As Special Counsel To Oversee The Russia Investigation Is A Positive Step. I Am Hopeful That He Will Help Us Get To The Bottom Of The Trump Campaign’s Ties To Russia, Including Any Role The President May Have Played.” “Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) released the following statement Wednesday after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller to serve as a special counsel to oversee its investigation into Russian meddling in the election: ‘Robert Mueller’s appointment as special counsel to oversee the Russia investigation is a positive step. I am hopeful that he will help us get to the bottom of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, including any role the president may have played. To ensure the American people have full confidence in this investigation, it must be conducted in an open and transparent manner and be given the full resources it needs. Additionally, the ongoing investigations by both the Senate and House must continue.’” (Sen. Bernie Sanders, “Sanders Statement On Appointment Of Special Counsel,” Press Release, 5/17/17)

In July 2017, Sanders Said The Mueller Investigation Was “An Intensive Investigation” And He Supported The “Process Very Strongly.” MSNBC’s ANDREA MITCHELL: “Do you see a pattern here where the president may be preparing to take -- make moves against the independent counsel, Robert Mueller, by getting rid of Sessions?” SANDERS: “Andrea, I have -- I think the American people, including myself, have a hard -- a very hard time understanding what Trump does today, let alone what he will do tomorrow, because often, he changes his mind completely. All I can say is that right now, there is an intensive investigation trying to determine whether there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. That's an investigation that has got to go on. It's got to go on in a methodical, non-partisan way. And I support that process very strongly.” (MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” 7/25/17)

VIDEO: In February 2019, Warren Said The Mueller Investigation Was “Serious” And “Pretty Amazing.” WARREN: “But my view on this is – let’s get Mueller stuff in there too. This has been an ongoing investigation. It’s a serious investigation. It’s already produced – what is it? Nearly 3 dozen either indictments or guilty pleas. That’s a pretty amazing investigation already and make a report to the American people.” (Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Remarks On The Young Turks, 2/21/19) 

KAMALA HARRIS

Kamala Harris: “Bob Mueller Is The Right Person At The Right Time.” “Sen. Kamala Harris said Thursday that President Trump needs to realize this investigation into his campaign's alleged collusion with the Russians is ‘not a game show.’ ‘I think the president should figure out that this is not a game show and that Bob Mueller is the right person at the right time, and should be left to lead this investigation and take him where the facts lead him so the American people can find out what happened,’ Ms. Harris, California Democrat, said on MSNBC.” (Sally Persons, “Kamala Harris: Donald Trump Needs To Realize The Russia Investigation Is 'Not A Game Show,’” The Washington Times, 6/19/17)

CORY BOOKER

In August 2017, Booker Spoke Of Mueller’s Investigation, Saying, “I Have Full Confidence In His Investigation, And I Believe He Will Take It To The Full Extent That Is Necessary.” “Booker said he doesn't ‘want to read too much into’ news reports that special counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury as part of his inquiry into Russia's involvement in the 2016 presidential election. ‘We know that Mueller is doing a job, and I think that he should be given the freedom and the space to do his job,’ Booker said. ‘I have full confidence in his investigation, and I believe he will take it to the full extent that is necessary.’” (Olivia Sylvester, “Booker: Military Ban Hurts Standing,” Courier News, 8/5/17)

Folks, with something this big, does anyone really think this report wasn’t going to leak. And we’re still waiting on those too. We have all week. The levels of hypocrisy and paranoia emanating from the Left side of the aisle is so outrageous at times, I think they’re kidding. Mueller filed this report. His staff was made up of partisan Democrats. If they couldn’t find anything…there was nothing. All there is now is linguistic gymnastics on how Trump committed obstruction, which he did not.
