Elder Patriot – For conservatives the most frustrating aspect of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is the way both Mueller and the mainstream media have commandeered the narrative.
This has led to ill-informed Trump detractors and Hillary supporters like this one whose facts are sadly skewed:
She's been thoroughly investigated and no crimes were ever found. Give it a rest. Trump and his team met with the Russians 80+ times and promised to lift the sanctions against them even though they were voted on by the vast majority of both parties and you still defend him? Wow.

Making Stronger Together’s response even more troubling is that it came in response to Rudy Giuliani who tweeted this earlier today:
Just a few days before 60 day run-up to 2018 elections. If Mueller wants to show he’s not partisan, then issue a report on collusion and obstruction. They will show President Trump did nothing wrong. Then we will have to admit you were fair. And we will.

Keep in mind that the investigation into President Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia has yielded no evidence after two years of looking.
Just last month, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in announcing the indictment of 12 members of Russian military intelligence Friday for hacking Democrats’ emails during the 2016 presidential election, unequivocally declared no collusion alleged with any Americans.
There is no allegation in the indictment that any American was a knowing participant in the alleged unlawful activity or knew they were communicating with Russian intelligence officers. There is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the vote count or changed the outcome of the 2016 election.
Still, Mueller plods on hoping, that by turning the screws on Trump’s associates and his family, that someone will compose evidence of a crime – any crime – against the president that he might use to drive the narrative defaming Trump a bit further.
Either way, the longer this goes on the longer Americans’ biases allow the one-sided reporting from the mainstream media to keep us deeply divided.
Where former FBI director James Comey was conscious of biasing the 2016 election against Hillary Clinton and wrapped up this investigation much too early, it appears Mueller has no such concerns.
It appears that Mueller is intent on leaking enough innuendo against President Trump, and opening new lines of inquiry, to keep the mainstream media chirping its anti-Trump narrative right up to and through the 2018 midterms.
Having failed to make the case for collusion or obstruction, Rudy would like Mueller to at least put an end those narratives that do a great disservice to legitimate debate about the president’s actual record of achievement.
That is why Rudy called Mueller out with an offer a reasonable non-partisan prosecutor wouldn’t refuse.
Giuliani asked Mueller to admit he found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia and then clear up the nonsense about obstruction with regards to Comey’s firing.
That would still leave Mueller to continue doing what he’s now focused on – entrapping anyone who worked with, or is related to, the president.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t describe Mueller who was appointed not to find the truth but to bring down our president by any means possible.
