Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
A “special counsel” who has no idea what the word “justice” actually means. – Looking for all the world like a doddering, poorly-aging man in need of assisted living care and sounding like a stammering, nervous wreck, Gestapo Chief, er, Special Counsel Robert Mueller got in one final despicable smear at President Donald J. Trump today in a press conference at which he refused to take questions.
Reading haltingly from a prepared text from which he never strayed, the man who spent 20 months conducting a depraved witch hunt designed to hamper a duly elected president’s ability to run his administration and serve as opposition research for the 2020 Democrat presidential nominee demonstrated conclusively that he rejects the Constitutional dictum that any American citizen charged with a crime must be presumed innocent unless proved guilty in a court of law. Mueller turned that crucial principle of American liberty on its head by stating that his objective was in fact to dig up dirt on a sitting POTUS and to instead declare him to be innocent if only he and his team of Clinton/Obama hacks felt confident in doing so.
To be exact, Mueller said “If we had confidence that the president did not commit a crime, we would have said so,” when in fact any ethical prosecutor would instead have said something like “If we had found evidence that the President committed a crime, we would have said so.”
The difference in those two statements is no trivial matter. It is in fact the single most crucial difference between personal liberty and oppression. Yet, Mueller made that un-American statement even after grudgingly admitting he and his Witch Hunter team found no evidence that the President committed any obstruction of justice, and no evidence of any collusion by the President with any foreign interest.
It is the continuation of a despicable smear, a depraved act by a highly-political, corrupt and for some reason desperate man.
I say “desperate” because it is hard to envision any other reason for Mueller to have held today’s press event. What other reason besides desperation was there to do so? He certainly was not being prodded to do so by Attorney General William Barr or anyone else in the Trump Administration. He certainly has no obligation to respond via the media to Democrat efforts to force him to testify before various house committees. He certainly had no obligation to make a verbal statement of any kind to the press regarding his retirement from the DOJ – a simple memo to Barr would do that trick.
So why did he do it? Let’s think about that for a moment, because I think he was there to send some very specific messages, the first of which was to Jabba the Nadler and the rest of the despicable House Democrats.
That message was: “Read my report. My report speaks for itself, and I would not testify to anything beyond that report. Now, leave me alone.”
What does that mean? That means that Mueller knows that he would have to answer questions from Republicans as well as Democrat members of any committee, and that not be an easy thing for him to do. He also knows that he would subject himself to perjury charges should any of his verbal testimony contradict anything in the 440 page report he stupidly sent over to AG Barr in March. For better or worse, he is stuck defending everything that is in that report, word for word, and he doesn’t want to assume the risk of having to remember it all under oath.
The second message Mueller likely wanted to deliver on the record today was to Barr himself. Mueller spent time in his statement pointing to the fact that the scope of his Witch Hunt was authorized by then-Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein in a pair of scoping memos, and make various other self-justifying statements. This probably means that Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham are reviewing Mueller’s many abuses in the scope of their own investigation, which would help explain why Mueller was so extremely nervous while making today’s statement.
Mueller’s final message was that he is an angry, bitter man. Angry that his Witch Hunt failed in its goal of successfully executing a coup d’etat on President Trump, angry that he had to shut it all down when a real, functional Attorney General took over that office, bitter that he is now facing personal jeopardy for conduct that Rosenstein had personally sanctioned.
Thus, he issued one final angry, bitter statement containing one final smear of the President, a smear that literally turns our nation’s system of justice and protections of personal liberty on its head.
The proper charge for attempting a coup d’etat on U.S. soil is treason, the maximum penalty for which is death.
There is no punishment too harsh for a government official who would stoop to such despicable tactics.
That is all.
