After pretty much everyone across the political spectrum agreed that former FBI special counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony before Congress this week was a complete and unmitigated disaster for the Democrats, the consummate ‘Never Trumper’ took a different take.
The National Review mainstay wrote in an editorial for Time claiming that “Mueller’s critics did not undermine a single one of the report’s material factual assertions regarding Trump’s conduct or the conduct of his team” during the two hearings i which the veteran FBI spook faced questioning.
French believes this despite the fact that Mueller stated that he was not aware of Fusion GPS, the firm that was contracted through a third party by Democrats to produce dubious intelligence that provided the entire basis of the Russian collusion investigation.
“All of it reflects the fact that the Trump campaign was laden with individuals who were willing, eager even, to accept campaign help from America’s chief geopolitical foe,” French wrote of the so-called evidence found in the Mueller report.
After misrepresenting the obvious truths about Mueller’s testimony before Congress, French recycled old, debunked attacks against the President – urging that the American public must vote for the Democrat in next year’s election because of Trump’s supposed lack of character.
“And while Democrats and other Trump opponents are right to emphasize policy disagreements and policy alternatives, it is also vital to ask the American people, do you still want this man to be your president?” French asked.
“The bottom line is clear. The truth is one of Donald Trump’s most dangerous enemies. Robert Mueller uncovered the truth. It’s now up to the American people to ensure that the truth carries political consequences,” French wrote in the conclusion to his article.
Outside of French’s reality-deprived ‘Never Trump’ bubble, commentators from the Left and the Right are admitting that Mueller’s muddled testimony was a huge victory for Trump and those who have proclaimed the Russian collusion investigation to be a giant hoax.
A frail old man, unable to remember things, stumbling, refusing to answer basic questions…I said it in 2017 and Mueller confirmed it today — All you pundits and moderates and lame Dems who told the public to put their faith in the esteemed Robert Mueller — just STFU from now on

Trump must be gloating in ecstasy. Not because of the failure that is Robert Mueller — his Report is still a damning document of crimes by Trump—but because Trump understands the power of the visual, and he understands that the Dems aren’t street fighters and that’s why he’ll win

This is very, very painful.

Much as I hate to say it, this morning’s hearing was a disaster. Far from breathing life into his damning report, the tired Robert Mueller sucked the life out of it. The effort to save democracy and the rule of law from this lawless president has been set back, not advanced.

As I said when Mueller gave speech in May, he is feeble.I say that not as a personal attack but as a rational observation. It’s on display today during this hearing. This underscores that the person who influenced this investigation most was Andrew Weissman, his top lieutenant.

French’s echo chamber is getting more lonely, as he is even forced to admit that Mueller “didn’t deliver the kind of command performance that would reverse the emerging momentum (backed by polls) against impeachment” and that “asking voters to support only the second impeachment in American history – on the eve of a presidential election, no less – represents an unacceptable, divisive political risk.”
Trump has emerged from Mueller’s special investigation victorious, and whiny op/eds from French and others similarly afflicted with Trump derangement syndrome are not going to change the truth of the matter.
ET TU, TUCKER? Carlson Suggests Sidney Powell Has No Evidence of Vote Steal Coup on ‘Fox News’
Has he been compromised?
After the inspiring press conference by attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell on Thursday about the Trump campaign’s steadfast dedication toward fighting voter fraud, supporters of President Trump expected Fox News host Tucker Carlson to support these efforts to save America.
Unfortunately, that is not what happened, as Carlson went off on Powell, making statements on his primetime program implying that she has no evidence for her claims.
“For more than a week, Powell has been all over conservative media with the following story: This election was stolen by a collection of international leftists who manipulated vote tabulating software in order to flip millions of votes from Donald Trump to Joe Biden,” Carlson said.
“The other day on television, Powell said of Trump, that when the fraud is finally uncovered, ‘I think we’ll find that he had at least 80 million votes.’ In other words, rigged software stole about seven million votes in this election,” he added.
At this point, Carlson’s commentary went off the rails, and he appeared to be carrying water for the color revolution coup that has culminated with the vote steal of the century.
“We invited Sidney Powell on the show. We would have given her the whole hour. We would have given her the entire week actually and listened the whole time at wrapped attention…But she never sent us any evidence despite a lot of requests,” Carlson said.
“When we checked with others around the Trump campaign, people in positions of authority, they told us Powell has never given them any evidence either,” he added.
Because Powell does not want to jeopardize any court case which the fate of the entire nation rests upon by blabbing to the media or any bureaucrats, Carlson is attacking her credibility.
“She never demonstrated that a single actual vote was moved illegitimately by software from one candidate to another…We’re telling you this because it’s true,” he said.

Tucker Carlson says Trump campaign unwilling to provide evidence to back their claims

Big League Politics has reported on the left-ward shift of Fox News in recent months, which Carlson has up to this point pushed back against:
After Fox News host Neil Cavuto cut off White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany during an election-related press conference on Monday, ratings giant Tucker Carlson lambasted Cavuto and the network on his titular primetime program.
“In a democracy, you cannot ignore honest questions from citizens. You’re not allowed. You can’t dismiss them out of hand as crazy and immoral for asking. You can’t just cut away from coverage you don’t like. You can’t simply tell people to accept an outcome because force doesn’t work in a democracy. That’s dictatorship,” Carlson said.
“In a free society, you have to convince the public of your legitimacy. You have to win them over with reason. Democracy is always a voluntary arrangement. Telling voters to shut up is never enough,” he concluded…
He is responding to the shameful editorial decision by Cavuto and Fox News earlier in the day to censor McEnany in order to keep up the ruse that Joe Biden is the president-elect…
It is being speculated that Carlson may not be long for Fox News. However, he is a ratings giant who brings in the bacon to a network that is quickly growing reviled to its own core base.
Hopefully this is not a sign that Carlson has folded to the globalist establishment.
