Elder Patriot – Now that new sheriff William Barr has taken over control of the Department of Justice, including oversight of the special counsel investigation of Trump-Russia collusion, we are being told that Robert Mueller is wrapping up his work.
It is a virtual certainty that Mueller’s investigative team has failed to find any “actionable” evidence against Donald Trump either prior to, or after, his election.
That’s the conclusion we come to from watching the timing of Team Mueller’s interminable inquiry so shortly following Barr’s swearing in ceremony as Attorney General.
That, and the fact that Mueller’s leak squad have conspicuously had no leaks that might be considered “actionable” against President Trump.
The word actionable is in quotations because we were told that actionable intelligence was the reason why this witch-hunt had to be undertaken.
Now that this sham inquisition has failed in its quest to undermine and destroy the Trump presidency, Mueller is packing up and leaving town.
Don’t think this marks the end of the Swamp’s attempt to destroy Trump. Far from it.
Until corrupt leaders of the Destroy Trump movement are frog-walked out in handcuffs, the narrative will continue shifting and the mainstream propaganda media will continue selling the Swamp’s nonsense – no matter the damage that it does to the body politic.
Evidence of the new tack came yesterday from former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. Appearing on CNN, Clapper said he’s far from sure that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation will clear up questions about President Trump and Russia.

Even after more than two-years of overreaching inquiries, that are expected to culminate in no charges against President Trump, Clapper is compelled to repeat the allegations as though that lends added legitimacy to what was a witch-hunt when it began.
These partisan swamp dwellers won’t let go of the Trump-Russia narrative, though they’ve given it a new twist to justify their Stalinist tactics, as Clapper told CNN:
“I think the hope is that the Mueller investigation will clear the air on this issue once and for all. I’m really not sure it will, and the investigation, when completed, could turn out to be quite anticlimactic and not draw a conclusion about that.”
WAT? Once accused, forever guilty?
Democrats, who are carrying the water for the UniParty efforts to diminish or end the Trump presidency, have already signaled the next phase of this operation and the mainstream media has signaled they are prepared to provide the air cover to carry out their plans – even as proof continues surfacing of the wrongdoing of Trump’s accusers.
The media’s steadfast determination to continue blaring this disproven narrative to the exclusion of an even equally explosive, if not more explosive, narrative that is emerging leaves the media exposed to being completely discredited if Trump prevails.
The media now tells us that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) feels that Mueller’s investigation was inadequate – despite massive funding and being granted broad prosecutorial powers – in preparation for transferring control to the HPSCI a committee that he now chairs, when Mueller shuts down.
This aligns with Clapper’s statement on CNN.
Crackpot Adam Schiff now attacking Mueller’s investigation as inadequate. Meanwhile, Senate Intel Committee found no collusion, underscoring the same result as House… https://t.co/KsXjIYS1xj

It should be noted that Schiff lobbied for the appointment of a special counsel in 2017 because leaving the investigation to the HPSCI would be too political. Of course, that was when Republicans were in control of the committee. Rep. Schiff, isn’t political, don’t you know.
Regardless, other than supplying raw meat to the propaganda media in the form of salacious and unverified – where did we hear that before? – innuendo, Schiff knows at this point that there’s no there, there. But with the help of the mainstream media, Schiff will play this for all of its political worth.
Rep. Ted Lieu, another California Democrat, assured listeners – and the Swamp scum whose future rests with Democrat success in damaging President Trump – to last night’s broadcast of CNN’s “Cuomo Primetime, that there’s plenty more to attack Trump with if Mueller’s report is disappointing to “Remove Trump” Dems..
“Now, if the report comes out and exonerates Donald Trump, we move on. If it doesn’t, if it basically says, hey, we would have indicted Donald Trump for these offenses, but for the fact that there’s a policy memo saying we can’t, then I think Congress has to really look at these issues and decide what to do with whatever offenses the Robert Mueller investigation reveals. Separate from that, the House Judiciary Committee and other committees in Congress will investigate other aspects of potential wrongdoing, such as obstruction of justice, witness tampering, abuse of power.”
“Regardless of what Robert Mueller’s report shows, there are investigations by the Southern District of New York. There are state attorney general investigations. So, this is going to keep on going to make sure that all of the possible crimes that Donald Trump and his associates may have engaged in will be investigated.”
And so, the investigations of President Trump will go on even as he orchestrates the greatest turnaround – both, economically and in foreign policy – that our country has experienced over the past 70 years.
The plan is to make impeachment a viable option in the minds of enough Americans that is serves as a means to swing the 2020 election. In that way this is all for political purposes.
Actually, that’s all it has ever been about.
There are no grounds for impeachment in the legal sense, not now, not ever, and Republican control of the Senate serves as a backstop for the president, if Dems are foolish enough to actually present articles of impeachment to the Senate.
Regardless, when you are without anything else to take down the president, and fearing he has the will and the goods to take you down, you make do with what you have and count on the left wing propaganda media to close the sale with the American voters.
However, President Trump should not be viewed as a sitting duck. He has a significant body of evidence – something these sabre-rattling Dems are still searching for – already in his offensive arsenal. And, he has indicated a willingness to use it if he has to.
In late November, after Democrats had seized control of the House, Trump told the New York Post that he was prepared to play nice with his newly empowered playmates, but that if House Dems planned on launching investigations into every aspect of his administration and of his life, he’d extract a very heavy price from them:
“If they go down the presidential harassment track, if they want go and harass the president and the administration, I think that would be the best thing that would happen to me. I’m a counter-puncher and I will hit them so hard they’d never been hit like that.”
What does the president have that members of the swamp, and those entrusted to protect them, fear?
Trump can still order the declassification of numerous highly incriminating papers, documents and compilations (emails and text messages) that would expose officials and agents of FBI, high-ranking Justice Department officials, and the Clinton campaign as having colluded against him.
