Robert Mueller’s report, concluding that President Trump did not collude with Russia in 2016, has hit some institution bigwigs exhausting. Spare a thought for poor James Comey, misplaced in the woods and ridiculed on Twitter.
After two years of investigation, Special Counsel Robert Mueller gave Attorney General William Barr his last report on Friday. Summarizing the report on Sunday, Barr revealed that Mueller couldn’t discover the elusive ‘Russian Collusion’ he was tasked with unearthing, and President Donald Trump declared his personal “Complete and total exoneration.”
After sustaining themselves for almost two years on a weight loss plan of pure, unrefined Russian hysteria, America’s liberal pundits and Democrat politicians started to melt down. It wasn’t fairly. Former FBI Director James Comey, amongst Trump’s most vocal opponents, took a extra pensive method, going for a stroll in the woods to ponder life post-Mueller.
Conservatives pounced, asking the previous spook a number of of their very own. “Why did you sign off on the FISA warrant based on hrc lies?” Fox News pundit Sean Hannity requested.
Comey has been savaged by Republicans for allegedly utilizing the unverified and salacious allegations outlined in the now-infamous ‘Steele Dossier’ to wiretap Trump marketing campaign adviser Carter Page. That identical file could be used to kickstart the FBI’s investigation into Trump’s supposed hyperlinks with Russia, an investigation that might later be handed over to Mueller as soon as Comey was fired by Trump in July 2017.
Comey is just not the one Russiagater with unanswered questions. Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff (California) greeted Mueller’s report by declaring that there’s still “compelling” and “significant evidence of collusion” on the market someplace. With Schiff at present heading a House Intelligence Committee panel protecting the identical floor Mueller did, Comey’s questions may simply get answered some day.
