After yesterday’s Robert Mueller testimony, I have many unanswered questions.
We’ve become accustomed to some degree or another with patterns, habits, and societal cues. These may be for practical reasons, such as which side of the road to drive on, or saying excuse me for accidentally bumping into someone.
Can we go our own way, yet all be going the same way? What is it that drives people, as if they’re cattle to follow miscues, false rumors, and the foolishness of partisanship without merit?
Among the many times we’ve collectively witnessed the baying hounds of radical partisanship, who attempt to unseat a President, they insist that Donald Trump couldn’t have fairly won the 2016 Presidential election over their anointed candidate, Hillary Clinton.
It’s beyond any reasonable limit to pursue something that began from a circulated and purposefully leaked, false dossier. From that, a FISA warrant was issued that began this long dive down a rabbit hole of all too apparent nonsense. If you’re unable to see this for what it is, then you too have been sucked into the vortex of political Kabuki theater.
The Mueller Report was to be the final nail in the coffin of Donald Trump. Instead, after yesterday’s public hearing, which had Robert Mueller come forward to testify about a report he said was sufficient unto itself. On one hand, it basically said, there’s no conclusive evidence to prove Trump colluded with the Russians. He left the door swinging when his report suggested, their investigation couldn’t exonerate him either.
“Mueller said at a May press conference in Washington that the report his office released following the probe into Russian 2016 election meddling was tantamount to his testimony. His lengthy report found no evidence the Trump campaign colluded with Russians to influence the election, but did list 10 possible instances of obstruction of justice by the president during the probe. Mueller also announced his office was closing up shop at the news conference.”
“The Democrats who lead the Judiciary and Intelligence Committees in U.S. House of Representatives decided to subpoena Mueller to testify, announcing on June 25 that the former FBI head would appear before lawmakers in open session July 17. The date was later changed to July 24.”
If you don’t find the person guilty, doesn’t that conclude, innocence?
“Mueller spent two years & about $35 million on an exhaustive investigation that did not conclude that the president was not guilty of some form of criminality.”
The whole absurd, convoluted result was perfectly summarized in Mueller’s oracular pronouncement at his press conference on May 29: “If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.”
Perhaps there’s nothing I can say which changes opinions, but my understanding of the legal system is, we’re innocent until proven guilty. A lack of evidence suggests the person is innocent, not some other convoluted outcome.
Twisted judicial logic?
Some see Donald Trump as a self-indulgent sybarite, not as a statesman. None the less he has attempted to find ways to bridge the gulf between the US and North Korea, chosen a contentious but successful path to get the NATO partners to pay more of their financial burden, and lead the nation to greater prosperity and lowest unemployment numbers, in decades.
Now, assuming the original accusations were well founded, then we must ask, who was in charge of national security, prevention of espionage, as well as ensuring fair and accurate elections, without interference from foreign powers, in 2016?
Above all that, we were hearing speeches from Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton, that our elections were fair, honest, and accurate. They said this in 2014, 2015, and 2016. What changed? Weren’t they the ones in charge?
The Republicans weren’t any more immune to this radical partisanship. We saw this carried out to the extreme with President Barack Obama. Donald Trump led the parade of fools, claiming Obama was born in a foreign country and the Hawaii birth certificate was a fake. From month to month an Arizona Sheriff as well as Trump claimed they had conclusive evidence Obama wasn’t a natural born citizen. That wasn’t they only constant accusation, but certainly one of the most ridiculous.
This whole potpourri of inanity needs to come to a conclusion, and a end. It’s time the American people quit acting like a collection of ‘Stepford Wives’, and recognize they’re being played.
