In an interview with Bill Hemmer’s podcast this weekend, House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes (R-CA) said that the American people deserved to see real justice befall those Department of Justice officials who broke the law when going after the Trump campaign in 2016 and the president himself after the inauguration. Nunes said that the entire investigation into Russian interference was nothing more than an “obstruction of justice” trap that was launched – and concluded – without any evidence of collusion.
“These are all a bunch of dirty cops, and I’ll tell you – we’re going to go down a spiral in this country because you will not have a Republican that will trust the FBI or the Department of Justice for generations to come,” Nunes said.
Nunes said it was his suspicion that the entire Mueller investigation was just a charade to give Democrats a chance to get in power and start pushing for impeachment.
“They were trying to hold out this investigation as long as possible, bust people here and there for nickel and dime stuff — like obstructing an investigation, lying to Congress — and eventually they would get Trump,” he said. “What they were probably trying to get Trump to do was say something publicly, tweet something – probably their best dream was for him to fire Mueller … and then you’d have public sympathy and public support for impeachment.”
That pretty much sums up our thoughts about this whole witch hunt as well. Robert Mueller never made one allegation against anyone in the Trump orbit that had anything at all to do with colluding with the Russians. Not one. All those millions spent and all those investigatory hours wasted. Not one single charge relating to Russian interference in the election. No American charged with conspiring. All he came away with were phony perjury charges and penny-ante accusations about tax fraud and other crimes that have absolutely nothing to do with the election.
The very day the Mueller report dropped, the Democrats stopped talking about Russian interference in the election. Suddenly, they were all about obstruction of justice. Sorry, but WHAT justice are we talking about here?
Mueller’s going up on the witness stand in another couple of weeks. Republicans have a glorious opportunity to use him to dismantle the fake news conspiracy theory that Democrats peddled for two damn years. That’s all that matters at the end of the day, and it’s the one thing that no one in the media or the Democratic Party wants to talk about. Wonder why.
