In a rather serious turn up for the books, the investigation that looked to prove Donald Trump’s ties to Russia has come up empty.
The man tasked to uncover the dirt lying underneath the surface of the Trump administration, found nothing. Despite all the hype, Robert Mueller’s long-awaited report regarding Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election was a bit of a damp squib. Apparently, Donald is clean as whistle, with Mueller also concluding that no-one on Donald’s books knowingly conspired with Russia during the election.
Mueller wrote, “While this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”
Ostensibly, this is the 2019 gritty reboot of Geraldo Rivera’s discovery of Al Capone’s vault. We have nothing present but our disappointment. Clearly, the Donald will see the findings as vindication of his extended assertion that he was just pals with Vlad, decrying the “witch hunt” that has befallen him.
ICYMI, the entirety of the issue was simple. Trump denied teaming up with Moscow to obstruct justice, US intelligence agencies believed he did. Many accused Donny of obstructing the investigation when he canned FBI director James Comey. Flashforward to two years later, and apparently he’s in the clear.
Per the ABC, “…the Department of Justice announced on Friday that Mr Mueller had ended his investigation after bringing charges against 34 people, including Russian agents and former key allies of Mr Trump, such as his campaign chairman Paul Manafort, former national security adviser Mike Flynn and his personal lawyer Michael Cohen.”
Clearly, the only thing left to wrap up the issue, is a grammatically impaired tweet from the Quixote atop his mule of vindication, well:
No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!
