‘How much more do we need 2 see before it’s enough #COLLUSION #Resist…’
(Kaylee McGhee, Liberty Headlines) Vulnerable House Democrats had no problem pushing the Russian collusion hoax during the 2018 midterm elections, despite the lack of evidence.
But now that special counsel Robert Mueller has exonerated President Donald Trump, it’s unlikely they will admit their faults.
Reps. Katie Porter, D-Calif., Harley Rouda, D-Calif., and Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, D-Fla., all ran in important swing districts in 2018, and each claimed there was absolute proof that Trump colluded with the Russian government to steal the 2016 presidential election.
We should all be concerned by the actions of the President and his enablers..
Collusion is a crime. So is obstruction of justice.
And truth—despite what Trump’s lawyer claims—is truth.
Mr. Mueller must be allowed to finish his investigation and then we must act accordingly.

“…How much more do we need 2 see before it’s enough,” Mucarsel-Powell wrote on Twitter in July 2017.

Professionals, ignoring the chaos and turmoil being created by Trump and the GOP whom are purposely belittling our law enforcement officers to hide Russian collusion. What happened to America First?

Self-proclaimed centrists, Reps. Joe Cunningham, D-S.C., and Tom Malinowski, D-N.J., also promoted the collusion conspiracy.
This isn’t coincidence. It’s collusion. https://t.co/UJ7YgBf1Gt

Malinowski boldly claimed that the collusion conspiracy was not just “Moscow gossip” or “wishful thinking.”
“This could not have been deliberate disinformation, because the Russian govt had no reason to plant info that would hurt Trump,” he wrote on Twitter in July 2017. “More in life is explained by incompetence than conspiracy. But in combination, they strain credulity.”
All these things are possible. More in life is explained by incompetence than conspiracy. But in combination, they strain credulity. (15)

Democrats have continued to grandstand and double down on their collusion claims, despite Attorney General William Barr’s review of Mueller’s report, which indicates no further indictments.
But because Mueller’s report explicitly says it “does not exonerate” Trump with regard to obstruction, Democrats continue to insist that there must be evidence of criminal activity.
Though Barr’s review is ongoing, he confirmed that Mueller did not recommend further prosecutorial activity against anyone involved in the Trump campaign.
Trump responded to Barr’s review with a simple Tweet: “No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!”
No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!
