There are three main things to understand about the report, and one that is the main thing: Trump was cleared completely.
Look, I’m no admirer of Trumps, but the crap that the Democrats are pushing, now that, supposedly, “Mueller didn’t exonerate Trump for obstruction of justice!” is just that… crap.
Here are the three things that you need to understand about the Mueller report:
- Trump — and the Trump campaign — were completely exonerated by the report.
- The Mueller report’s wording does exonerate the Trump administration, and Trump in particular, on the obstruction of justice nonsense.
- The report did show that the Clinton campaign “colluded” with foreign agents in order to influence an American Presidential election.
Focusing on #2: The language said something about not being able to make the statement that the President had not obstructed justice.
Well. I guess that’s bad news for Trump, right? Nope. The following language would be equally accurate:
We were unable to find any evidence that Trump obstructed justice.
Oh, they used weasel words… Found lots of things that “didn’t rise to the level of obstruction of justice.” Okay. Things that “Don’t rise to the level of obstruction of justice”… aren’t obstruction of justice. He could have used that, more precise, language as well. In a bit of whataboutism, please recall what Hillary Clinton’s supporters all said after Comey’s little speech.
Look: I’m unable to conclude that my neighbor is not a child molester. Therefore, according to the Trump-haters’ “logic,” she’s… a child molester. Right? I mean, I haven’t found any evidence that she’s not, so she must be, right? Right?
Of course not.
It is important to note also that I’ve never seen any evidence or indication that she is a child molester either.
Now, I can go out and run around yelling that my neighbor’s a child molester, and you can be sure that the police will quickly become involved, and they’ll investigate my allegations. And, likely, they’ll find nothing against her. But… they haven’t yet. so she still might be, right? Right?
It should be noted, further that if I were to run around shouting that my neighbor is a child molester, the only reason I would do that would be from sheer malice. Because I have no evidence, and have never had any evidence, that she is.
That’s how this whole “Mueller investigation” started. The Democrats, who hate Trump, were running around shouting “Collusion! Collusion!” And that — like my hypothetical accusations of child molestation — was the only evidence they had. Of course, as soon as the Democrats started shouting that crap, their lapdogs in the media took it up, and it all became inevitable.
But it was never more than the very same thing as my hypothetical fabrication of a child molestation charge against my neighbor.
So, bottom line, I have no evidence that my neighbor is not a child molester. Further, I have no evidence that she’s not a liquor store holder-upper either; or a mugger, or a drug addict, or a tax cheat, or even a lousy person.
Oh, and I have no evidence that she is any of those things either.
That’s what the Mueller Report said: It said that there was no evidence that Trump hadn’t obstructed justice… and that there was no evidence that he had.
Oh, there were all manner of circumstances that one could imagine would be things that might be done by persons who had obstructed justice, but my neighbor has all manner of circumstances related to child molesters, liquor store robbers, etc. also.
She has a daughter — as do many child molesters; she has drunk adult beverages — as do many liquor store robbers. She has money and a new car — as do many liquor store robbers. I don’t know how she came by all that money and the new car — as for liquor store robbers. She has a new grandchild — as do many child molesters. She’s divorced — as are many child molesters. Worse, she’s a leftist — as are virtually all child molesters! Holy mackerel! She is a child molester! But, really, I don’t have any actual evidence — even the fact that she’s a leftist! — that indicates that she’s a child molester.
And that’s, in so many words, what Mueller said.
