Trump Goes Ballistic Morning After Statement From Special Counsel Robert Mueller

Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who headed up the now infamous Russia collusion investigation, made a statement on Wednesday that only added more fuel to the fire on the controversy, is probably regretting speaking out right about now, as President Trump went ballistic Thursday morning in an epic rant on the whole situation.

Trump critics have focused on Mueller’s loaded comments on obstruction in his final statement as special counsel Wednesday as evidence that he did, in fact, conclude that Trump was guilty but Department of Justice regulations blocked him from recommending charges.

“If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so,” said Mueller. “We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime….we concluded that we would not reach a determination one way or the other about whether the president committed a crime.”

But following Mueller’s statement, the Department of Justice and Mueller’s office issued a joint statement clarifying his comments: “The Attorney General has previously stated that the Special Counsel repeatedly affirmed that he was not saying that, but for the OLC opinion, he would have found the President obstructed justice. The Special Counsel’s report and his statement today made clear that the office concluded it would not reach a determination – one way or the other — about whether the President committed a crime. There is no conflict between these statements.”

Mueller has come under fire from many analysts, including Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz and Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro, for his handling of the obstruction question.

“Mueller’s investigation never should have included obstruction by Trump,” Shapiro wrote in an op-ed responding to Mueller’s statement. “Unlike the election interference investigation, which began as a counterintelligence investigation inside the FBI, the obstruction investigation began as a criminal investigation — and a criminal investigation that Mueller admits he never had the authority to conclude. … Mueller spent tens of millions of dollars and years of time investigating unindictable conduct. So what the hell was he doing?… He is a member of the executive branch. He is not an independent counsel. He is not a legislative investigator. A criminal investigation that cannot possibly result in charges is a conflict in terms. Mueller never should have agreed to such an investigation under the law, and Mueller’s own standard makes that clear.”

Shapiro brings up a most excellent point. If Mueller knew that he was investigating something that couldn’t actually be prosecuted, then why in the world would you waste millions in tax dollars to look into this matter if nothing was going to come of it? It seems pointless, right?

At the end of the day there’s not sufficient evidence to point to any wrong doing by the Trump campaign, which essentially means the president isn’t guilty of the conduct they accused him of.

Now it’s time to move on. Stop beating a dead horse. Next year is an election year. If the left wants to be taken seriously against the president during the race in 2020, they better start working on actually listening to the American people and pulling their wacky radicalism back to the center instead of wasting time on impeachment.
