Hat tip: Rising Serpent

So in the end all the libs and their political operatives in the mainstream media are left with is a few measly strands of supposed “scandal” – Robert Mueller’s interpretation that it was difficult to assess Donald Trump’s mindset during the entire two years of Mueller’s investigation and therefore equally difficult to say yea or nay as to whether obstruction of justice occurred. That’s it.

Obstruction of justice? Obstruction of justice? Whoa, wait a minute. I – silly me – was under the impression after all the hype and hysteria from the likes of MSNBC, CNN, The Washington Post, The New York Times and all the major networks that Robert Mueller’s investigation was all about Russia and collusion, and that Trump was some kind of Russian agent and even a traitor because his campaign collaborated with “Bad Vlad” to deny Hillary Clinton the election and the presidency that was so rightly hers.

What happened to that??

No, no. Even if obstruction of justice was true (which it obviously wasn’t, that was just Mueller giving President Trump the middle finger as a parting gift) – you Trump-hating losers (and you are the very definition of losers) don’t get to move the goalposts that easily. You can’t spend virtually every waking hour on your network coverage for more than two years pushing the Russia collusion angle with speculation, character assassination, and unnamed sources and then on the day the final report was issued detour all your attention to obstruction of justice. And even at that, you’re all looking like the morons you are and have been since Donald Trump was elected. As Powerline blog’s John Hinderaker points out:

One of the Democrats’ basic problems is that “attempting” to obstruct the investigation doesn’t make a lot of sense. If Trump had really wanted to obstruct the investigation, he could simply have terminated it. And Mueller acknowledges that the administration fully cooperated with the investigation in every way. So the “attempts to obstruct” come down to Trump expressing outrage at the fact that a baseless, partisan investigation was hampering his administration. Arguably Trump should have brought the Mueller farce to an end, but he didn’t.

The above being said, it’s fairly obvious what was going on with the Mueller investigation. Robert Mueller knew almost from the start that there was no evidence involving Russia collusion. The challenge was to take the investigation in whatever direction was needed to goad Trump to fire Mueller. (Which is why such a focus was initially on the (obvious) set-up meeting at Trump Tower involving Don Jr., who refused to take the bait.) Mueller figured if he could get any dirt on a Trump family member he’d be toast, and the Democrats – were they able to take both the House and the Senate in the 2018 midterms – would have sufficient cause for impeachment hearings, with, not unlikely, the support of more than a few Republicans along the way. Trump’s presidency would then be toast, leading him to either resign or be voted out in 2020.

Of course, the Republicans retained control of the Senate, and the movements by the Mueller investigation team, obviously goading the President to fire Mueller, were unsuccessful. Trump’s feelings about the Mueller investigation – whether on his own or by heeding the advice of his various counsels, never went beyond the feelings expressed on his Twitter feed. Bye-bye obstruction, and Mueller’s team, pissed, was reduced to the admission that there was no evidence of collusion with Russia and a parting shot of the amorphous language regarding obstruction.

So everything the Democrats and the liberal media have promoted for the better part of 2 1/2 years has now been proven to be much ado about nothing. Given their hatred of Trump, they’ll undoubtedly continue to hassle the President and his administration with more investigations and even impeachment threats, but I have a funny feeling both Chuck Schumer and “San Fran Nan” Pelosi know damned well that voters will now expect a little more constructive action from their elected leaders in Washington. Of course, the Democrats won’t be able to help themselves (Pelosi herself having lost control of her caucus), and they’ll try to make the 2020 elections a referendum on Trump’s presidency and his fitness for office. All I can say is, good luck with that – especially with the clown car of candidates the Dems will be running in 2020.

I may be wrong here, but if the Democrats continue to go down this road I do not believe the voters in 2020 will be amused.
