A U.S. Senator and 2020 presidential candidate called for President Donald J. Trump’s impeachment Wednesday as his poll numbers continue to slide.
“Robert Mueller’s statement makes it clear: Congress has a legal and moral obligation to begin impeachment proceedings immediately,” Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) said. “I’ve been asking for Mueller’s testimony—today he made his views clear.”

Booker later repeated his call for Trump’s impeachment.
“This Administration has continued to stonewall Congress’s oversight. Beginning impeachment proceedings is the only path forward,” he said.

Booker’s pandering to the far-left, which continues to hang on to hopes of impeachment, is perhaps a reflection of his low poll numbers. This week, his polling average was only three percent, putting the one-time Democratic Party superstar in sixth place nationally. He is currently polling lower than inexperienced candidates like Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, and South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg.
Wednesday morning, Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller officially ended his probe into the Trump campaign’s alleged “collusion” during the 2016 election, which came up empty. He did, however, take a subtle swipe at the president on his way out the door, alleging that if his office had evidence that Trump’s campaign had not committed any crimes, it would have explicitly stated that.
Big League Politics reported:
FBI spook Robert Mueller closed up his “nothing burger” today, formally ending his special counsel, and resigning from the Department of Justice during a brief 10-minute press conferencein front of reporters in Washington D.C.
“I’m speaking out today because our investigation is complete,” Mueller said. “The Attorney General has made the report on our investigation largely public. We are formally closing the special counsel’s office, and as well, I am resigning from the Department of Justice to return to private life.”
Mueller noted that “it is important for the office’s written work to speak for itself.”
He noted that Russians did use sophisticated attacks on our electoral infrastructure, crediting them with giving information to WikiLeaks, and damaging the candidacy of a particular presidential candidate – obviously referring to Hillary Clinton. He also credited some social media posts by Russians for influencing the election.
Mueller talked about obstruction as well, giving a vague diatribe against obstruction but not implicating Trump or anyone close to him as being guilty of the crime.
“We did not… make a determination as to whether the President did commit a crime,” Mueller said.
He noted that charging the President for a criminal act was “not an option we could consider.”

The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
