“I can confirm that we’ve transported one patient with burns from the Ellipse and we’re now on the scene assisting law enforcement,” a spokesman for the D.C. Fire Department told CNBC.

The incident occurred just after Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III announced that his office was closing shop and that he was retiring from the Department of Justice.

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.”

GOP Hack Smack Talks Brave Conservative Activist Gavin Wax

Published

on

New York Republican politics has gone through some interesting development as of late.

And it’s largely thanks to the actions of Gavin Wax, the president of the New York Young Republican Club.

Wax made noise on June 28, 2020 when the Young Republican Club rallied around the statue of Theodore Roosevelt at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.

Since then, he has made numerous appearances on Fox News to talk about this rally and stand up for Americans in a time when social disorder is ripping America apart and law enforcement has been under constant siege by deranged leftist mobs.

However, not everyone has been particular happy about Wax and his group’s work.

One of those people is Kevin Tschirhart, the Chief of Staff for New York City Council Member Eric Ulrich.

As the rally took place, Tschirhart sat on the sidelines and took a not-so subtle shot at the organizers who were using Teddy Roosevelt’s legacy as the theme of their rally.

He tweeted, “Losers who lose elections will always take shots from the sidelines, They’ll quote Teddy Roosevelt, but won’t get in the arena themselves. They know nothing.

Wax then tweeted, “.@kevintschirhart: You get paid by NY taxpayers. Please explain why you called the patriots who rallied to defend our police, to stand for our flag & anthem, & to protect our history “losers” who can only“ quote Teddy Roosevelt”? Seems insulting & patronizing. No gaslighting plz!”

Tschirhart backtracked and tried to play nice with Wax in the DMs saying “It wasn’t about the protest. Really wasn’t” after Wax pressed him further on the issue.

However, Wax was not satisfied with Tschirhart’s conduct.

BLP reached out to Wax to get his perspective on the situation, which has bec ome a topic of interest in New York Republican circles.

Wax told BLP that the Young Republican Club went out of their way to draw hundreds of people from across New York and neighboring states, with a rabbi passing out from heat exhaustion at the event.

Tschirhart is the chief of staff for Erich Ulrich, the only elected Republican in the New York City Council in the Queens borough.

Ulrich is no ordinary council member. Previously he plead for clemency for a convicted sexual predator and mafia associate Robert Pisani. Additionally, Ulrich called out President Trump in 2017 for his suggestion to defund sanctuary cities. So, Tschirhart is not exactly keeping the best company by working under Ulrich.

What this recent Twitter drama indicates is that there are still many individuals in the Republican Party who are not dialed in and avail themselves to petty politics.

When the social cohesion of the country is on the line and numerous rights such as the Second Amendment and free speech are under unprecedented threats, petty squabbling should be avoided as much as possible.

Trying times call for people to act, not talk smack on the sidelines.
