There Really Is No Mueller Investigation Without Manafort – Take Away Manafort And Everything Kind Of Flitters Away
Never have more accurate words been spoken about the Mueller Investigation than the above from Tom Fitton, of Judicial Watch, on last night’s “Hannity.” Paul Manafort really is the Mueller Investigation.
Think about it. Mueller’s critics say he has no evidence that Trump colluded with the Russians. Mueller then says, “But look at Manafort.” Mueller knows his team has nothing on Trump, hence the focus on Manafort. Fitton explains:
There really is no Mueller investigation to speak of substantively without this big Manafort indictment, these multiple indictments now. You shut it down and the Trump investigation is going nowhere. There is no Russian collusion.
A nice distraction from the IG report, which confirms that the Mueller operation was generated as a result of the crooked FBI agents who hated Donald Trump who set this thing in motion and were working for Mueller for a good period of time. Frankly, the whole thing has been tainted.
Yes, let’s look at Manafort. He is being investigated for a crime that allegedly occurred 12 years ago, that has virtually nothing to do with Donald Trump.
Also, Mueller’s focus on Manafort (and lack of focus on President Trump) shows that inflicting damage on Trump and Republicans in general through the midterm elections is his objective. Although he is well aware Trump has not colluded with the Russians, the continued cloud cast by this investigation may tip control of the House to Democrats in November, at which point Trump could be impeached.
And is it a coincidence that Manafort’s bail is revoked and he is sent to jail while the nation is digesting the long-awaited IG report, which essentially offers a list of reasons why any reasonable president would fire James Comey? It rather undermines the reason for opening the investigation in the first place, doesn’t it?
Judge Jeanine Pirro hosts one of the most informative discussions I’ve heard about Mueller’s lack of a case against Trump in the video below.
IG Michael Horowitz concludes he cannot connect the political bias of FBI officials to decisions they made in the case. The report says:
Our review did not find documentary or testimonial evidence directly connecting the political views these employees expressed in their text messages and instant messages to the specific investigative decisions we reviewed.
That truly defies logic. Kimberley Strassel, opinion editor and reporter for the Wall Street Journal, translates that statement saying, “Put another way, he never caught anyone writing down: Let’s start this Trump investigation so we can help Hillary win.”
Horowitz will answer questions early next week from members of Congress. Hopefully, he will acknowledge that his inability to find physical evidence (anything in writing) of political bias entering into the decisions of FBI officials in charge of the Clinton email investigation does not mean it didn’t happen.
Criminals generally try not to leave a paper trail of their crimes. And who would know that better than America’s top cops?
On Thursday night, Rudy Giuliani appeared on Hannity calling for the Mueller investigation to be suspended now. Please see video below.
By removing Manafort from the Trump/Russia collusion case, it becomes clear that there is no Mueller case. It was initiated for political reasons and remains open for political reasons. Horowitz says he can’t find evidence to connect the vehement anti-Trump bias with the decisions made by top FBI and DOJ officials.
The conclusions drawn by an Inspector General cannot remain the last word on a matter of such critical importance to our country. If ever a case screamed out for investigation by an independent special counsel, this is it. If a US president can be framed and vilified by the opposing political party, if Democrats are not held accountable for their wrongdoing, then America is no longer the home of the free.
