From Russia with no love.

President Trump has been under scrutiny for the past two years for possible connections with the Kremlin. The Russian probe was headed by renowned Prosecutor Robert Swan Mueller III, a well-respected man in many circles, and a notable Republican.  A special counsel has a very limited scope, and in this case, it was to investigate possible Trump campaign ties with Russian officials in the 2016 presidential election. After two years of groveling to find answers and $30 million in taxpayer funds spent to find evidence of Russian collusion all to find no shred of prosecutable evidence against the President.

Robert Swan Mueller III

Collusion is not a crime, but a foreign intervention to undermine our democracy is; to be clear I think that the investigation was warranted considering the rhetoric and “mushiness” the President had with de facto Russian autocrat, Vladimir Putin.

There was further cause for concern when previous Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the investigation drawing ire from the President.

However, this is a time for all Americans to rejoice for the fact of knowing that our commander-in-chief is not a Russian puppet. Regardless of political affiliation, it is important to appreciate knowing that the integrity of our elections and democracy is still intact.

That being said does this exonerate President Trump? Personally, I think this vindicates him, but there were 37 indictments in the Trump campaign including Paul Manafort, Trump’s campaign chairman. I was present in Washington, D.C. during Manafort’s trial in Alexandria, Virginia, and I had the privilege of working on the case with David P. Weber Esq. I would be remiss if I didn’t include the fact that these aren’t crimeless individuals who just so happened to get caught in the probe. When you take out two mortgages on the same property you’re bound to get caught, as Manafort did.

I hope that the full Mueller report is released to the public by Attorney General William Barr. We as American citizens have the right to know whatever information we can, except for material that is subject to executive privilege and redaction in the report. Republicans should not be cheering quite yet because there is still a multitude of lawsuits facing the President (Southern District of New York). Democrats on the other hand; such as Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), Eric Swalwell (D-CA), and Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), should all apologize to the President for their incessant lies about “collusion in plain sight” and apparent disregard for the factual evidence.

“Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelmingly bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country, and he’s just not worth it (President Trump).””

— House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wants to legislate not investigate, or impeach the President, which would only escalate tensions in Washington and the rest of the country.

“Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelmingly bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country, and he’s just not worth it (President Trump),” Pelosi said.

I couldn’t agree more with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Congress’s efforts should be focused elsewhere. I hope that order and decorum are soon restored in the nation’s capital in the not-to-distant future.
