It’s finally over, and President Trump is not only pounding his chest in jubilation, but he is taking a victory lap around congressional Democrats after it was announced that so-called “Russian collusion” between his 2016 presidential campaign and the Kremlin, never existed.
“The special counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its effort” to interfere with the 2016 election in that manner.”- Attorney General William Barr (Source)
One of Trump’s most loyal supporters, Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (R), who released a statement where he excoriated Democrats for lying about there being a “cloud of treason” and “direct evidence” of the now debunked Russian collusion claim.
“These statements were lies. The people who spread these lies owe President Trump and the American people an apology.” –Rep Gaetz said.
Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL) asserts that the Mueller investigation has been solely predicated on anti-Trump politics since Day 1, adding that Democrats need to look into “how the FBI concocted a multi-million dollar investigation” that was solely based on “fake intelligence.”
“I think it’s clear that this has been about anti-Trump politics since the beginning, but Congressional Republicans never obstructed the Mueller investigation because there’s no reason to run or hide from the truth. I’ve always said that if we seek out truth and embrace it then Americans can know that we all play by the same set of rules.
Now, it’s time for Democrats in Congress to embrace the truth, as Robert Mueller has concluded after 2 years and tens of millions of dollars, that there was no collusion with Russia and look into how the FBI concocted a multi-million dollar investigation largely based on an unverified dossier of fake intelligence. More than anything, it’s time for Democrats in Congress to stop the partisan obstruction, set aside the one-sided Congressional witch hunts and finally govern in a bipartisan way that puts people before politics.”-Rep. Brian Mast (R)
No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!
