After more than two years of fueling expectations that special counsel Robert Mueller would produce evidence from the “Russiagate” investigation which would lead to the impeachment of President Trump, Democrats were stunned when the report was finally released last month. The vindication of Trump took away what they foolishly believed to be their ticket to the White House in 2020, if not sooner. This left them with only two main issues: an anti-Russia, anti-China strategic policy, allying them with anti-Trump Republicans, in a repeat of Hillary Clinton’s pro-war stance, which was rejected by voters in 2016; and an anti-growth message tailored to fit the fraudulent claims of “man-made climate change,” an issue which continues to register little voter support, according to polling data.
In the wake of the Attorney General William Barr’s March 24 release of the summary of the Report issued by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, with his conclusion that there was no evidence of either “collusion” with Russia nor evidence of Obstruction of Justice, President Trump has launched a series of unprecedented initiatives in what can only be described as a global Peace Initiative. These include:
“After three years of lies and smears and slander, the Russia hoax is finally dead. The collusion delusion is over.”
With these words, President Donald Trump opened a raucous rally in front of more than 15,000 enthusiastic supporters in Grand Rapids, Michigan on March 28, celebrating the release of the report by special counsel Robert Mueller on March 22. According to the summary submitted by Attorney General William Barr, Mueller found no evidence of collusion, nor of obstruction of justice, thus vindicating Trump’s repeated claim that the investigation was a “witch hunt.”
It would not be surprising to find that many people outside of the U.S. are confused, and wonder what exactly is going on in the United States with the investigation of President Trump, and the charges against him and the "Russians". Most are probably familiar with the official story, that Russia meddled in the 2016 election, that Trump colluded with the Russians, and then obstructed efforts to find the evidence, as this has been repeated endlessly in the German press.
"The world is going to end in twelve years if we don't address climate change."
This comment, from newly-elected Democratic Party Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez from New York, exemplifies the problem facing her party in its efforts to remove President Trump, or stop him from breaking out of the containment imposed on him by the fake Russiagate scandal. Party leaders have invested their hopes for containing or removing Trump in the Russiagate investigation of legal hitman Robert Mueller, which has failed to uncover any impeachable acts by Trump. The top Democrat in the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, publicly stated this week that, barring some unexpected finding, she opposes proceeding with a drive for impeachment. For the moment, most party officials, including Select Intelligence Committee chairman Schiff—who has been fanatically pursuing an impeachment track—are backing Pelosi. The rationale given, besides the absence of an impeachable offense, is that a failed impeachment drive would evoke sympathy for Trump, and make him unbeatable in the 2020 election.
A narrative for the deluded now dominates the nation’s media. The story goes that Democrats in the House of Representatives, flush from their victory last November, are now acting to re-impose the “rule of law” and to put an end to the corruption within the Trump Presidency.
