The Mueller report came out several weeks ago, and it’s dominated the news ever sense. It would make sense for you to be burned out by now. If you’re anything like us you’re overwhelmed by all of the information coming out of this 448 page report. Not to mention the new stories that come out every day.
Here, we’ve gathered what we feel are the important takeaways:
All of the things you still want to know, and a few you may have missed.
"Although the investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, and that the Campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts, the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities."
"This raises serious questions as to how much the investigation morphed over time into an attempt to “get” the Trump campaign – just how eager were members of the FBI (say, Peter Strzok) to place extra weight on a dubious document of oppo research origin?"
"And yet according to investigative reporter Paul Sperry at Real Clear Investigations the FBI and DOJ, including Rod Rosenstein, James Comey, Sally Yates, Andrew Weissmann, Robert Mueller used the bogus document in their final report for the special counsel."
"So why are Democrats now claiming that we’re in the grips of a “constitutional crisis”? Why are some openly suggesting using the sergeant at arms to arrest Barr and throw him in jail? The answer is absurd: because Barr has not complied with a congressional subpoena that demands from him documents he cannot legally disclose. Yes, that’s right. Congress is threatening Barr with contempt in part because Barr won’t break the law.”
"Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee who just issued a rogue subpoena of President Donald Trump’s eldest son Donald Trump, Jr., ducked and covered from the media amid the backlash against his attempt to haul Trump, Jr., before his committee.”
"Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton continued her attacks on President Trump, this time in response to the president's refusal to comply with Congressional subpoenas.
Clinton charged that Republicans have a choice to make -- side with the White House or the rule of law.”
One thing is for certain – the implications of the Mueller report are far reaching, and the left simply will not accept defeat. No matter how clear it is that it’s time to move on.
