The frustration of major media outlets and Congressional Democrats is boiling over since Mueller’s investigation regarding Russian collusion concerning the Trump campaign came up empty.  The President didn’t claim executive privilege, didn’t withhold documents, didn’t block testimony, didn’t give pardons, didn’t fire Mueller.

But Special Prosecutor Mueller in his Swan Song said this: “If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so... We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime.” 

How can anyone prove they did not commit a crime that’s not described? 

It was an investigation that should’ve never been opened. It was based on a dossier made up by a Trump hating foreign agent Steele and secretly paid for by the Hillary campaign.

The FBI even leaked the document to friendly media outlets and when the story broke, pointed it out as corroborating evidence to the FISA court.

1. That is prosecutorial misconduct using the unlimited financial and technical resources of the government to go after political enemies.  

The FISA court meant to protect Donald Trump’s rights allowed those rights to be trampled on by a partisan DOJ-FBI-CIA.

Regarding the “coverup:”

A West Texas Reporter once put it this way:

“While we recognize that the subject did not actually steal any horses, he is obviously guilty of trying to resist being hanged for it.”

Yeah the probe did not accomplish anything but: •There are 187 criminal charges in active indictments or to which individuals have pleaded guilty •Another 23 counts against President Trump’s former deputy campaign manager Rick Gates were vacated when he agreed to cooperate with Mueller •Thirty-two people and three businesses have been named in plea agreements or indictments •Six guilty pleas from five defendants, including Gates, former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, businessman Richard Pinedo and lawyer Alex van der Zwaan •Former campaign chairman Paul Manafort faces 25 criminal counts •Van der Zwaan served about four weeks in prison and has been deported to the Netherlands, his home country •The indictments include charges of conspiracy against the United States; conspiracy to defraud the United States; conspiracy to obstruct justice; conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud; bank fraud; obstruction of justice; aggravated identity theft; failure to report foreign bank accounts; and tax fraud •52 counts of conspiracy of some kind •113 criminal counts of aggravated identity theft or identity fraud •Four guilty pleas for making false statements •25 Russian nationals have been charged with crimes along with three Russian business entities. Those individuals were charged in two indictments, one focused on Russia’s alleged effort to foster divisiveness on social media (indicted in February) and one focused on alleged hacking (indicted Friday) •13 individuals believed to be linked to Russian intelligence agencies have been charged, including Manafort’s longtime associate Konstantin Kilimnik, a resident of Ukraine •Four individuals working directly for or acting as advisers to Trump’s 2016 campaign have been indicted; three have pleaded guilty The only reason Trump wasn't brought up on charges is that it is policy for the DOJ not to indict a sitting president - that is the job of congress.
