Elder Patriot – This entire operation against the Trump campaign is a coordinated effort amid government officials, politicians, political groups external to government and media allies. None of this is happenstance; all of this is well coordinated. Once you know the signs, you can spot them everywhere… – Sundance
Top Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer declined an offer from Attorney General William Barr to review a less redacted version of the special counsel’s report.

Ask yourself why they would do that? Why would anyone seeking evidence of any alleged crime turn down the opportunity to view any evidence?
It’s important to keep in mind that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the man who appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel and who oversaw his investigation, worked with A.G. Barr to keep the redactions to a minimum.
What is it that these top Democrats, offered the opportunity to add to the body of facts that they currently have, don’t want to see?
- Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi
- Senate Minority Leader, Charles Schumer
- House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler
- House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA)
- Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), ranking member of the Judiciary Committee
- Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee
They are well aware of the laws that restrict the release of certain classes of materials that were put in place to protect four specific categories of materials:
- Material presented to a federal grand jury,
- Sources and methods gathered by intelligence agencies that would damage national security,
- Material that would impair ongoing court cases or ongoing DOJ investigations,
- Material that would impact the privacy or ongoing reputations of innocent third parties.
Having had their seditious conspiracy to overthrow a duly elected president exposed and defeated, these Democrats have now, incredibly, resorted to citing the Constitution as the basis for their intransigence.
“In order for Congress to fulfill its functions as intended by the Constitution…”
Their hypocrisy knows no bounds.
Aside from wanting to eviscerate major portions of the Constitution – the First Amendment,the Second Amendment, the Fourth Amendment, the President’s authority to protect our borders, the Electoral College, etc., there’s this:
While Rosenstein was acting as the Attorney General providing oversight of documents requested by Congress when Republicans were requesting it, he only let them see highly-redacted versions of what they requested when he let them see anything at all.
These same Democrats praised Rosenstein back then for protecting the important separation of powers defined within the Constitution. They now conspicuously avoid discussing Rosenstein when attacking the decisions he signed off on with Barr.
Dems viciously attacked President Trump for waging an assault on the venerated institutions that comprise our intelligence community, when he asked for everything to be declassified so that the public could decide his guilt or innocence for themselves.
Releasing the unredacted documents “may have a perceived negative impact on the Russia probe.”
That was from December 2018. At that point Mueller knew for at least a year, perhaps a year-and-a-half, that there was no there, there to the Russian collusion hoax. Mueller should’ve closed shop at that time.
Instead he spent 22 months working to build a case for obstruction as a means to topple our president and failed to goad President Trump into a chargeable offense.
