Mueller report vindicates Trump, no conspiracy or coordination with Russia

April 18, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response the final report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller:

“Robert Mueller’s report is a slam dunk vindication of President Trump, who was the victim of an intelligence agency operation designed to entrap him and those around him in process crime snares, even as they knew that there was not a sufficient basis to say there was any conspiracy by Trump, his campaign or any American with Russia to interfere with the election.  Mueller himself writes that ‘the evidence was not sufficient to charge that any member of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with representatives of the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 election,’ which was defined as operations to do with hacking the DNC and John Podesta emails and an inconsequential social media campaign by a Russian company.

“This is unequivocal, but not a surprise to anyone who was profiteering off of this fake news driven conspiracy theory.  Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who is no friend to President Trump, said in March 2017, ‘We had no evidence of collusion.’

“Additionally, lead FBI investigator and proven Trump hater, Peter Strzok texted his then lover, FBI agent Lisa Page, that ‘there’s no big there there’ in talking about the Russia case.

“And even former CIA Director Michael Morell is quoted in March 2017 as saying, ‘There is no fire, at all.’

“Yet our nation and those associated with the Trump campaign, transition team and administration were subjected to about a three-year long investigation, including nearly two years by a special counsel who was appointed to investigate something that everyone knew was false.

“Professional Trump critics like former CIA Director John Brennan were regulars on MSNBC stoking the collusion fires later claiming that he perhaps had ‘bad information.’ The partisan media outlets like ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and MSNBC along with the entire Corporation for Public Broadcasting taxpayer funded hierarchy breathlessly repeated planted rumor after planted rumor promising viewers that this time, they really had Donald Trump.

“And today in the aftermath of the collapse of their delusion, they cling to their age old approach to attack the messenger, Attorney General William Barr, because the pedestal they had built for the special counsel was too high for them to tear down in time to not have egg on their faces.

“No conspiracy with Russia by Trump is great news for America.  One could hope that the left-wing corporate media machines will learn a lesson and return to journalism, but that is not what they are — instead they are advocates getting paid to culturally transform America. If anything good is to come out of this national embarrassment, it is my hope that the media emperors who have been running around with no clothes are finally seen for the frauds that they are, and as a result, the public denies them the one thing they need — viewers and listeners.  In doing so those who have perpetuated this Russian collusion fraud through hours upon hours of anti-Trump coverage will be denied the dollars from selling soap to those very viewers who they colluded to trick into believing that Donald Trump was a traitor to his country.

“Now, the Attorney General needs to get to work to determine who abused the legal protections in place to stop this kind of intelligence abuse and take all available measures against them to make certain that this never happens again, as well as recommend reforms to ensure that the FISA Court ceases to be a rubber stamp for spying.”
