BARR: No collusion by any Americans

Attorney General Barr found no one in the Trump campaign colluded with “Russia” to meddle in the 2016 US election.

A devastating blow to Democrats and their mainstream media stenographers.

Trump reacted immediately…

Via RT…

With the full report on special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into claims President Donald Trump colluded with Russia about to be released, Attorney General William Barr is giving a press conference about its findings.

Barr maintains the allegation that the Russian government made efforts to interfere in the election through the Internet Research Agency, an alleged Kremlin-control “troll farm”, as well as “hacking efforts” by the Russian intelligence agency GRU.

The bottom line, Barr says, is that Mueller has found Russia tried to interfere in the election, but “no American” helped it.

Barr explained the White House’s interaction with the Mueller report, whether Trump used executive privilege to block any of its contents from release, as well as on how the Justice Department chose which bits of the 400-page paper to redact.

On the matter of obstruction of justice, Barr said he and his deputy Rod Rosenstein have reviewed Mueller’s evidence and “legal theories”, and found that there is no evidence to show Trump tried to disrupt the investigation.

He said Trump never used his powers to interfere with Mueller, and thus had no “corrupt intent” in the matter.

Most of the redactions in the report were made to protect ongoing investigations and personal information of “peripheral third parties”.

Barr said that no-one outside the Justice Department took part in the redacting process or saw the unredacted version, except for the intelligence community, which was given access to parts of it to protect sources.

Trump did not ask to make any changes to Mueller’s report, Barr said.

Trump’s personal counsel was given access to the redacted report before its release.

A number of Trump-affiliated people, as well as Russian nationals, have been indicted, charged or put on trial by Mueller over the course of the past two years, but none for election-related conspiracy. Still, Democrats in Congress as well as numerous establishment media personalities have been insisting that Barr, a Trump pick for AG office, is somehow “spinning” its findings in order to protect and exonerate Trump, and are calling to see the full report as soon as possible.

They have equally condemned Barr’s decision to hold a news conference before the report is release, claiming he is trying to shape the public perception in Trump’s favor.

Here is an article that looks at whether nations around the world regard the United States or Russia as the greater threat to their nation:

It is interesting to see that nations that have traditionally been pro-American feel that the threat posed by American power is growing in spite of the anti-Russia narrative propagated by the West.

People see what is there: that the US is the greatest threat to the world, not Russia or China or Iran or tiny North Korea or Venezuela or, or, or…

The Democrats are desperate: their entire narrative for the 2020 elections collapsed and they have nothing else to offer. They certainly do a good job to get us stuck with Bolton and Pompeo for another 4 years. And who knows if the world can survive that.

Regarding Assange, Wikileaks, the Russian “hack”…….. Alright, this thing about who was the leaker (And Binney make a pretty damn good case that it was a thumb drive download) makes me wonder why there isn’t a hard look being taken here. You have the time stamps of the file downloads. You have a pretty good idea of where the downloads had to have happened. Everybody and his idiot brother have cell/smart phones that are hooked into GPS. Cross reference the time, the place and the phones and you have a pool of people you should be questioning HARD. Even if… Read more »

Of course there was collusion with Americans; By the Brits. By the Israelis. By the Saudis. By the Ukrainians.

This collusion created a devastating collision of America’s MSM brains, such as they are, with a brick wall. Never shall America be the same.
