Mueller be damned: House Dems planning to dramatically expand ‘Russia’ probe despite NO evidence of ‘collusion’

By Jon Dougherty

Twice this week, Americans have learned there is nothing — literally nothing — to the bogus “Trump-Russia collusion” narrative that Democrats and the Washington establishment have been pushing now for more than two years.

On Tuesday, we reported that POTUS Donald Trump’s former top White House lawyer, John Dowd, who says he is intimately familiar with everything that Robert Mueller has, including all of his witnesses and evidence, does not believe the special counsel will issue a final public report because he hasn’t found anything at all to suggest the 2016 Trump campaign worked with Mother Russia to “steal the election” from Hillary Clinton, or that Trump himself is a Manchurian candidate acting on behalf of Vladimir Putin.

In a far-ranging interview for the first episode of “The Investigation,” a new podcast that focuses on Mueller’s investigation, defense attorney John Dowd told ABC News he believes the high-profile, massive, two-year probe into alleged Trump-Russia “collusion” to “steal” the 2016 election was “a terrible waste of time.”

More importantly, he doesn’t think Mueller will even issue a parting shot.

“I don’t think there’ll be a report,” he said, according to ABC News. “I will be shocked if anything regarding the president is made public, other than, ‘We’re done.’”

In the lengthy podcast interview, Dowd’s impression of the probe matched Trump’s view — that it’s been a witch hunt and huge unnecessary distraction from his presidency.

“I know exactly what [Mueller] has,” Dowd told the interviewers.

“I know exactly what every witness said, what every document said. I know exactly what he asked. And I know what the conclusion or the result is,” he added, in providing a description of the wide-ranging efforts by the president’s legal team to gauge progress in the case by speaking to dozens of witnesses.

Based on that knowledge, Dowd said, “there’s no basis. There’s no exposure. It’s been a terrible waste of time.”

Also Tuesday, reports noted that Senate Intelligence Committee’s chairman, Richard Burr (R-N.C.), said after two years and after interviewing some 200 witnesses and reviewing more than 300,000 pages of documents, his panel is left with no other conclusion except that the collusion allegations are bogus because members have found no evidence to support the contention.

All of this proves, of course, that the collusion narrative was fabricated out of whole cloth by the Obama-run Deep State to not only ‘explain’ Hillary’s unexpected loss, but to purposely undermine a legitimately-elected president and to keep him from performing his constitutional duties as head of the Executive Branch and leader of our country.

In any other time, these acts would have been considered treasonous, for in hampering our president the Deep State operatives — James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Andrew McCabe, James Clapper, John Brennan, and, yes, Barack Obama — have provided “aid and comfort” to our enemies.

They are acts of treason still.

But nevertheless, no matter what the Senate Intelligence Committee’s chairman says or the former top White House lawyer (who says he has maintained regular contact with POTUS since leaving a year ago), Democrats are so heavily invested in the hoax they are already vowing to ‘expand the Russia probe’ beyond even the outrageously inappropriate parameters of Mueller’s probe.Axios’ Mike Allen reports:

Mueller is just the beginning. House Democrats plan a vast probe of President Trump and Russia — with a heavy focus on money laundering — that will include multiple committees and dramatic public hearings, and could last into 2020.

The aggressive plans were outlined yesterday by a Democratic member of Congress at a roundtable for Washington reporters. The member said Congress plans interviews with new witnesses, and may go back to earlier witnesses who “stonewalled” under the Republican majority.

The reporters, many of them steeped in the special counsel’s investigation, came away realizing that House Dems don’t plan to depend on Robert Mueller for the last word on interference in the 2016 election.

Allen says three congressional committees are already involved: The House Intelligence Committee is taking the lead, coordinating with House Financial Services on money-laundering questions and with House Foreign Affairs on Russia.

First up, other than trying to get the president’s tax returns: Finding out what he and Putin talked about during a private meeting, “whether that’s subpoenaing the notes or subpoenaing the interpreter or other steps.”

That’s unheard of. That’s beyond inappropriate. And frankly, there is no precedent for it.

Such requests can be easily swatted away by the president, who could — and should — claim such conversations are protected under executive privilege. But of course, that won’t satisfy Democrats who will no doubt seek relief in the courts or find other ways, legal and illegal, to continue harassing Trump.

Now is the time for all Americans to rally around the president — not just his supporters. If we care at all about restoring the rule of law, reinvigorating our institutions, and rebuilding the trust in our processes so vitally for civil society to remain civil, we have to protect not just President Trump but the integrity of the office he holds.

Democrats aren’t just trying to destroy the current occupant of the White House; they’re trying to destroy the entire system.

  1. LOL! Democrats…

    • If the Dems want to continue an investigation after it’s been said there was no collusion, then they should have to pay for it out of their own pockets, because at that point, it’s just grandstanding.

    The President has rights too like any other person under our Constitution and Bill of Rights.
    What the Dems are doing to him is illegal! The Dems are livid that Meuller hasn’t found any dirt on Trump so, they are taking matters into their own hands. They will run endless investigations into Trump’s personal life until they find something worth impeachment. Or at the very least, alter the facts to justify impeachment.

    Instigating Trump has become a full-time obsession with the Dems. They should be working with the President in helping Americans and not destroying him and us too.

    This is not a search for truth. This is their revenge against Trump because their Queen of Evil, Hillary, lost.

    • Mueller’s investigation is illegal, it was set up illegally, then committed numerous abuses, including violations of scope.

    Prosecute them under laws.against sedition.
    Send them all to prison.for.minimum 20 years.

  4. At this point it is treason to try and destroy the office of the President of the United States.
    This is absolute abuse of power and using political positions to achieve personal agendas, which have nothing to with the business they were elected to do.
    The Democrats actually want to set a new bar in which a trial will never be closed even if found of no wrong doing.

  5. Tin foil hats are now a requirement to be a demoncrat.

  6. Base problem here is Professionally trained LIARS = Lawyers do not go after other Professionally trained LIARS = Lawyers… Example, Comey and Hillary. He said she broke the law, but not one would go after her…

  7. democrats are treasonous filth.

  8. Arrest the Democrats, Hang them after a quick trial.

  9. After many more months of investigations, what will the Dems do if they find no corruption in Trump? What will they do if they discover that he is in fact an honest, trustworthy and honorable man?

    Will they all start screaming at the sky in despair?

  10. What they always do, make up charges that lack any semblance of the truth, leak it to the media and then continue with their own lies. Shiftless Shiftt has already shown he has no intention of doing the work of the people; he is going to get Trump no matter how many lies he has to tell. He should be made to pay for his inquisitions out of his own pocket. He also needs to be investigated for his “chance” meetings with the CEO of Fusion GPS. He was probably guilty of leaking information to the media during the Nunes investigation.

  11. These people when insane when the Right when after Obama birth certificate, which was clearly a fake. And they forever scream when they are confronted with their lies, such as voter fraud. Yet, these absolute fools continue this absurd waste of tax payer money and time that could be very well spent making America even greater. Please, Republicans, get out and vote next time. Letting the democrats take over the house was definitely preventable.

  12. Mr. President,

    Choose the ground you fight on. Established by law and reaffirmed by the Supreme Court, immigration enforcement is the sole purview of the Executive branch. That’s one.

    So build your wall and let it be known. You will seal the entire border, if it becomes necessary. And then stand firm until congress reimburses your military budget. Exert the tremendous leverage you hold.

    Two: ignore the predictable lower court rulings and orders. If SC Justice Roberts ties up the SC and you still have every legal precedent to claim immigration enforcement remains the sole duty and responsibility of the executive branch.

    And three: without any definitive, game changing, judicial resolution from the Supreme Court, who can challenge you?
    Remember. The country elected you to be President and not Pelosi, or Congress. If they decide there is to be an impeachment, let it be on the ground you choose, border security. The country supports your border enforcement efforts. The people support you, border security and your wall. Everything will ultimately be resolved in 2020 and not before. Any further compromise in an effort to appear reasonable will only hurt you with the electorate.

    The people want a President who is in charge. We want affirmative, positive resolution. Otherwise, you are just another trick politician, a sellout in search of a second term. Now is the time to stop jawboning and to stand strong on your promise and the principle of saving America.

  13. The cure for treason is a firing squad at dawn…….

  14. This won’t quit until republicans grow a set (don’t see that happening) and investigate Obama, HIllary and the democrats that used less than stellar means, probably unlawful means to try to win the election. Mitch McConnel and others are part of the deep state also.

    • Yes, this is an all around conspiracy. Republicans helped create this coup (Sessions, Ryan, McConnell, …).

  15. Good, they need something harmless to keep them busy.

  16. At this point, if Americans allow this nonsense to continue…we deserve all that the Democrats do to us.

  17. Let’s put this impending two year ordeal of House Democrats investigating at the feet of the person most responsible. RINO Paul Ryan, who used his time as Speaker of the House for the last two years to stymie Trump. You Wisconsin progressive liberals must be very proud.

    It is now time for a new Senate and Congress. These folks are corrupted beyond rehabilitation.
