Send in the Clowns

Ever since Donald J. Trump was elected President of the United States, his Democrat opponents have tried to delegitimize his presidency. They first said that he did not win the election because Hilary Clinton won the popular vote, then it was that his campaign colluded with the Russians, and he obstructed justice. As a result a Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed to investigate Russian intervention in the 2016 elections, and the circus cane to Washington.
Not content with collusion, the probe morphed into an investigation of obstruction of justice when the President fired the FBI Director James Comey. After at least $40 millions of taxpayers’ money, the Mueller report was finally released to the Attorney General William Barr on March 22, 2019. For close to two and half years all we heard from the Democrats was that Trump was a lackey of Russia, and some even hinted at treason.  But to their chagrin, the final report found that there was no collusion, and perhaps there may be evidence which could not clearly exonerate the President from obstruction of justice charges.
The Attorney General is under no obligation to release the Special Counsel report, but AG Barr first released a summary of the report, then a redacted version of the full report which did not please the Democrats because the Pre4sident was not found guilty of any charges. Despite the fact that some thirteen Russian, three Russian entities, 12 members of the GRU were indicted, still there was no Trump people indicted for collusion, but members of his campaign were sent to jail for other infractions.
The genesis of all these accusations and investigation is yet to be made public. It is well known that the first sounds of collusion came from a Dossier prepared for the Hilary campaign and the DNC as an election research and may have involved material provided by the Russians. While the now Democrat Majority Congress wants to pursue other avenues to impeach the President, Democrat Presidential candidates making the rounds with charges of ‘constitutional crisis’ and charges of contempt for AG Barr because he refuses to testify in front of Congress and he refuses to release the full Mueller report. Ironically, the AG cannot release all of the report by law, because certain parts have to be redacted to protect certain Grand Jury testimonies. Ironically, the Democrat crying foul is no other than Congressman Jerry Nadler chairman of the Judiciary Committee, the same congressman who vigorously opposed the release of the Starr report that led to President Clinton’s impeachment.
We have yet to see proof of obstruction of justice in the Comey case.  What most people and the media ignore is the fact that the President can fire anybody under his employ, which Comey was. The same Comey who once was vilified by the Democrats for disclosing additional Clinton emails in a letter to Congress.
 There  are two shoes yet to drop.: the Inspector General Michael Horowitz report on  Federal Intelligence Surveillance Act ( FISA) abuse, the other one is the possibility of the President releasing classified documents pertaining  to  the involvement of former FBI Director James Comey, ex-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, and former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who may face criminal prosecution. As the public is invited into the big tent, we are about to see all the clowns coming out of Democrat Circus that Congress has become.
