For the last year, a constant refrain from Trump and his sycophantic supporters has been that the Mueller Investigation is a politically motivated “witch hunt” without any basis in reality. As the months have dragged on and with each new slew of indictments and plea deals, that refrain has become increasingly hysterical as the rhetoric from this administration and its defenders have become increasingly (and suspiciously) shrill. After all, if there’s nothing to to worry about, why complain at all?
They are, however, both complaining and very trapped. No matter what the president, his cronies, or his rowdy mob of gormless buffoons say or do, the fact of the matter remains that the “Russia thing” isn’t going anywhere. If either Trump or his sycophantic congressional baboons actually try to go after either Deputy Attorney General Rob Rosenstein or Special Counsel Robert Mueller, all bets are off, and we’ll be in a constitutional crisis that will undoubtedly spell the end of the Republic.
However, assuming that Republican politicians retain enough of an instinct of self preservation to avoid necessitating either the military from having to uphold their oaths to defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic, or inciting the People into evoking the Second Amendment and taking things into our own hands, there is only a matter of dealing with the ridiculous attacks on the Russia investigation.
When Trump’s cognitively challenged supporters demand evidence to prove Trump’s guilt, they merely demonstrate their typical pig ignorance of the most basic principles of American jurisprudence (not to mention practically everything else). It is simply a fact that all evidence recovered in the course of an active criminal investigation must be done so in absolute confidence, because releasing the evidence to the public could be seen as prejudicial and actually make the evidence inadmissible at trial.
So, no, Trump supporters, we don’t have any “hard evidence” to show you, but we can promise you that Mueller almost certainly does. How do we know this? It’s a very simple case, and I’ll spell it out (and I know I’m not the first).
1- The Indictments
If you know anything at all about the criminal justice process (and a quick Google search coupled with an IQ sufficiently above room temperature will get you started), you’ll know that the prosecutor (or, in this case, special counsel) doesn’t actually have any power to indict anyone. The very fact that there have been indictments indicates a grand jury has been convened, has seen evidence, has heard arguments, and has been convinced that there is more than enough evidence necessary to warrant criminal charges.
2- Those Indicted
Dozens of companies and individuals have been indicted, all of whom have significant connections to Donald Trump and his rat nest of cronies and foreign contacts. Russian companies, with connections to Putin’s government and to Trump, have been indicted. His campaign manager, his chief national security adviser, his foreign policy adviser, campaign aides, his personal lawyer, and even “the coffee boy” have all been indicted by various grand juries.
3- The Plea Deals
Michael Flynn (Trump’s National Security Adviser), George Papadopoulos (a member of Trump’s foreign policy advisory team in 2016), Rick Gates (Trump’s deputy campaign manager in 2016), Richard Pinedo (a man who illegally traded bank accounts with connections to Russia), Alex van der Zwaan (a Belgian lawyer with extensive connections to Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, as well as the Ukrainian government), and, most recently, Michael Cohen (Trump’s personal lawyer). All of these men are within one degree of separation of Trump. All committed crimes for which they made plea deals. All have turned states’ witness. All were involved in dealings with the Russians that Trump and his circus of idiots want us to believe he knew absolutely nothing about.
In conclusion, one thing is absolutely clear to me. Either Donald Trump must be the most incompetent political executive of all time or he is a traitor to his countrymen. In either case, no, Trump, the Russia thing is not going to go away.
Let justice be done.
Liberty is For The Win!
The only problem is – you have not shown any proof that Trump “colluded” with the Russians to influence the election. I don’t doubt the Russians did – its just Trump did not work with them to do so. Espionage has been going for how long now between USA and our enemies? Nothing new. Yet you ignore the fact that it was the democrats/ Fusion GPS/Obama himself, et al, who really meddled in the election to get Queen Bitch Shrillary elected. And you cheered them. Why would trump “collude” Putin is an evil man. Business transaction with Russian companies vice versa does not qualify for “collusion” as you seem to suggest.
Yes. I have. And I also accounted for the “proof” that you want to claim does not exist. You’re pleading that there SHOULD be proof of his guilt publicly. No, if he’s guilty of a crime of that kind… there will NOT be public evidence.
No you haven’t. All you have shown is connections and those connections don’t prove one way or the other that Trump actually illegally interfered. Funny how Wikileaks can expose Shrillary/obama/ et al, yet nothing on Trump. Keep digging.
Men turning state’s witness are, by definition, evidence.
No. Circumstantial. You have only shown guilt by association which will not hold up in court. You need to show: For example: an email, at text, a recorded telephone call, an eyewitness, a hand written note/ letter or hand signed, pictures, for example. I.e. tangible evidence that will hold up in court. Furthermore, if you put the same energy into exposing Shrillary/obama/holder/lynch and on and on: Benghazi, Schrillary’s email scandal at Dept of State, IRS scandal/Lerner and on and on and all of obama’s cronies we will be getting somewhere. You are just pissing in the wind with your hypocrisy.
There is nothing “circumstantial” about direct testimony. Look it up.
“For example: an email, at text, a recorded telephone call, an eyewitness, a hand written note/ letter or hand signed, pictures, for example. I.e. tangible evidence that will hold up in court.”
It’s funny. You don’t think that Mueller has this.
No he does not. If he did, we would have seen it a long time ago.
LOL You didn’t read the article at all, did you?
“You are just pissing in the wind with your hypocrisy.”
Says the guy that claims he personally has evidence of Hillary’s wrong doings? The only hypocrite here is you, friend. Get this, no matter HOW morally bankrupt Hillary is, a point that is utterly irrelevant to this discussion, Trump’s and the Republican’s OBVIOUS guilt is undeniable.
Manafort was found guilty. You kept saying the state had nothing, but Trump’s cronies keep coming up guilty. I’m sorry that you so divorced from reality. That’s not “conservatism”.
I never said his cronies are not guilty. Mueller & Co is barking up the wrong tree. Shrillary has everything to do with this case. Fusion GPS/Obama were the jerks that “colluded” with Russia to interfere with the election. Get it right. Leave Trump alone. You would have more credibility if you went after Shrillary/obama/holder/lynch/lerner. Mueller and Co are all Trump haters. Sounds like we have a lot independence, eh? Conflict of interest issue if you ask me. Now CNN is defending Lanny’s lies after he backpaddled. Keep barking up that tree. It will be funny to see you crash and burn.
“Mueller & Co is barking up the wrong tree.”
If he’s barking up the wrong tree, why does he keep getting indictments, guilty pleas, and convictions? You’re as blind as the Obamabots, guy.
Blind, eh? Think again. > https://www.conservativereview.com/news/mark-levin-presents-overwhelming-constitutional-case-against-appointment-of-mueller-in-a-free-episode-of-levintv/
30 Pieces of Silver Levin’s opinion means less than nothing to me. He’s an idiot. Fact: Nothing in the Constitution prohibits a special counsel. Zero. Once again, Judas’s opinion means less than zero to me. You (and he) conveniently forget that he had PRECISELY the opposite opinion during the Starr investigation. I have no time for hypocrites. You won’t get it until Trump is impeached, taking the corrupt Republic down with him. Good riddance to both. Let Liberty reign. Have the last word.
But Levin was your hero not too long ago. Regardless of what Levin stated in the Starr investigation is not relevant here, whether he was right or wrong. Sometimes a lawyer can be wrong and it does not necessarily make him an idiot. Are you an idiot when you are wrong about something? Anyway, Levin being right or wrong is not the point. Let me explain it to you: Article 2 Section 2 Clause 2:
“He shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers of the United States, whose appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by law: but the Congress may by law vest the appointment of such inferior officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the courts of law, or in the heads of departments.”
So, who can appoint a special prosecutor? Who appointed Mueller? Rosenstein. Rosenstein is not the President.

Never called Judas my hero. I used to respect him… but that was back when he pretended to have a spine and a conscience. He can hang and burn in hell right beside Trump for all eternity with EVERYONE that supports Trump. In my estimation, you are all irredeemably traitors to liberty and justice. I’ll never trust you on my side again, back stabbers.
“Regardless of what Levin stated in the Starr investigation is not relevant here, whether he was right or wrong.”
No hypocrisy here. If Oh, but you praised him in your own words. If I can find your words from my Twitter account, I will post them on my blog and nothing you can do about it. You unfriended me, but that is ok. I don’t care if you unfriended me on Twitter. It shows the kind of hater you are and you are no better that the democrats and the RINO Trump haters. You are so steeped in hate for Trump that you cannot see any truth. You were proved wrong on this; actually Calabresi proved you wrong; I will give credit where credit is due. And this is the kind of response you give? You can’t even face your own sin. It’s a damn shame that people who believe in so much the same same principles can be so divided on a sitting POTUS that was fairly elected. Hate me, block me, I don’t care and call me what you want, but truth will always prevail regardless.
Blah blah blah. Yeah, I’m “steeped in hate”, because I don’t bootlick for Trump. Or MAYBE… I have standards, and you don’t. Maybe I don’t see the universe in terms of partisan black & white terms.
But all speculation aside, you’re projecting. The reason you think I hate your thrice divorced, serial philanderer, with ties to Russia is because you hate your countrymen. You hate your countrymen so much, you’ll support Trump, even if it means the destruction of bonds of friendship or even national kinship. You’ve chosen which side of the fence you’re on.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go shopping for some Nike apparel. #Capitalism
You have standards? HAHAHAHA!!! All of these charges against me in your kangaroo court are real steep and you present what evidence? Just because I stand with the better of the two candidates this is how you act/believe? You are not being rational at all and it shows. Be damned to vote for Shrillary. I can exercise #capitalism too by not purchasing Nike’s trash.
“I can exercise #capitalism too by not purchasing Nike’s trash.”
They don’t need you, guy. Fun Fact: You’ve not been their target market, for at least 30 years, Boomer.
Also, standards means that you don’t scream about expansion of the executive office under Obama but then cheer about the white guy doing exactly the same thing. Standards means you don’t scream about the gross expansion of the deficit under Obama but then cheer about the white guy increasing the deficit. Standards means you don’t scream about Obama giving tax rebates and driving government policy that favor certain market sectors and domestic suppliers but then turn around and cheer when the white guy engages in the same socialist policy. Stop pretending like you care about “capitalism”. You don’t. You’re a partisan nationalist socialist, and you always have been.
One thing: our republic is going down the tubes quicker than we think because the US Constitution is not being respected. And this witch hunt is just a tip of the iceberg. We are quickly becoming a lawless, despotic country.
“We are quickly becoming a lawless, despotic country.”
Yes, we are… but you are the lawless one, guy. You ACTUALLY believe that Trump is above the law. You believe this because he told you to believe it. You’re weak willed.
PS – Buy, Nike. #JustGrowUp https://www.nike.com/us/en_us/c/men
LFTW said ” but you are the lawless one, guy. You ACTUALLY believe that Trump is above the law. You believe this because he told you to believe it. You’re weak willed.”
On what grounds? You and your ilk are the lawless ones because you have an unconstitutionally appointed prosecutor to get rid of Trump instead of the constitutional impeachment process.
“On what grounds? You and your ilk are the lawless ones because you have an unconstitutionally appointed prosecutor to get rid of Trump instead of the constitutional impeachment process.
You eat up everything 30 Pieces of Silver Levin tell you to believe. Go ahead. Challenge the special counsel in court. See how far that gets you.
On side note, Donald Trump says he’ll campaign for Ted Cruz at “biggest stadium in Texas we can find” > https://www.texastribune.org/2018/08/31/ted-cruz-beto-orourke-donald-trump-texas/
Don’t you get it? Campaigning for Ted Cruz shouldn’t even be necessary. It’s TEXAS, Trump. This demonstrates just how much damage you Trumps have done to the Republican brand. You’re actually having to convince TEXAS to keep buying it.
Even if Lyin’ Ted wins, the Republican Party is over, and good riddance. You did this, but you’ll never take responsibility for it, Trump.
LFTW said: “Campaigning for Ted Cruz shouldn’t even be necessary.” But he lost the nomination. I think some campaigning would help. Damage? Trump has turned out to be more conservative on the issues than I took him for and surprised me on a number of the issues. I wouldn’t call it damage. I’d call it exposing who the real Americans are and who the kick-the-can-down-the-road RINOs are. No wonder jerks like W, H, traitorous McCain, et al and other RINOs on the Hill don’t support him. We know who they really are.
It’s sad watching someone who claims to be conservative lie openly.
Let’s talk about that can that’s been kicked.
1) Trump done anything about Social Security, which is bankrupting us? Nope.
2) Trump done anything about Medicare, which is bankrupting us? Nope.
3) Trump done anything about our federal deficit, which is bankrupting us? Nope.
You’re as leftist as the progressives when it comes to fiscal policy. Admit it. There’s a term for that: Nationalist Socialist. You want the socialist policy, you just think that other people should have to pay for it, whether that is through direct confiscation (war) or indirect confiscation (trade).
You’re right, though. It HAS exposed who the real un-Americans are. And it’s guys like you that resort to badmouthing Bush and McCain. Go do it to their families. You lack the guts or the honor to do so. W and McCain were better men than you or your orange buffoon could ever be, cultist.
PS – Your rights to post anything further on my site have been REVOKED. I will not tolerate slander, especially by someone idiotic enough to elevate Commander Bone Spurs over men who actually served their country.
Manafort has rolled on Trump. What’s the chances that Trump supporters will stop believing that it’s a nothing-burger witch hunt…? Zero. There is no rationality in Trumplican cultism. These people have had a psychotic break. They have shown who and what they are. There is no common ground to be had with them. None.
