Special Counsel Robert Mueller is gone. He’s done. Finished. He really doesn’t want to discuss further the Russia investigation, which he helmed for two years, staffed with die-hard Democrats who found nothing to firmly pin President Trump to the Russian collusion myth. The report is definitive. There was no collusion. Democrats read that section of the report. We all know it, though he phrased it as if it were an open-ended question. It’s not.
Progressive reporter and longtime Russia collusion skeptic Michael Tracey, formerly of the Young Turks, has been brutal in keeping the liberal media accountable for their Russian collusion myth peddling. He also thought that the release of the Mueller report wouldn’t kill the Russia-centric hysteria that’s engulfed the Left. Too much time and resources have been devoted to keeping this myth propped up.
Yet, the area where we all knew the sandbags would be re-stacked is around obstruction junction. The lack of evidence to bring about formal charges was the initial story. Now, we have this long-standing policy that you cannot indict a sitting president. It’s all but a smoke signal to Congress to begin impeachment proceedings, which have been pretty much underway since Democrats retook the House in 2019. The subpoenas over the banking records, the tax returns, and the meltdown over AG Barr’s letter—all of these so-called oversight investigations and hearings are all geared towards impeachment, no matter what Pelosi says. They have to do this. The Left won based on impeaching Trump. And Mueller, as Tracey noted, gave Democrats a fresh injection of Russia fever. Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), chair of the House Judiciary Committee, said that all options are on the table.
At the same time, what was also gutted was this whole Barr-Trump cover-up story, which was borne out of liberal America’s anger that Barr didn’t leak anything to them so that they could selectively edit the remarks to fit their trash narrative about Trump-Russia collusion. Mueller thanked Barr and didn’t mind the letter he sent to Congress concerning the contents of the report prior to release post-redaction. Mueller just didn’t like the media representation, which is a day that ends in “y” with any government official in this town.
Mueller just poured gasoline on the impeachment garbage fire. He carefully tailored his words to achieve exactly that effect— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) May 29, 2019
In light of Mueller's comments, I'm confused as to what "cover up" has been perpetrated (the one alleged by Pelosi). Mueller says he had no problems with Barr's handling of the Report. He didn't complain that Barr misrepresented anything; rather, he thanked and praised Barr— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) May 29, 2019
I'm against impeaching Trump on the basis of anything Russia-related, because I'm against impeaching presidents on the basis of debunked FBI/CIA conspiracy theories, but that doesn't mean I can't recognize what Mueller was clearly doing: trying to instigate impeachment— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) May 29, 2019
Mueller just gave impeachment-crazy Democrats a fresh injection of Russia fever. Initiation of impeachment proceedings is likelier than ever now. Mueller specifically tailored his statement to instigate impeachment: I don't see how anyone could read it otherwise— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) May 29, 2019
Some of my cherished fellow "Russia skeptics" insisted that Russia fever would break after the release of the Mueller Report, which totally obliterated the "collusion" narrative. I said: nope, the fever is here to stay. Mueller confirmed that today. Impeachment, here we come!— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) May 29, 2019
Fix bayonets, everyone and show no mercy. 2020 is going to be a bloody slog.
