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.

Fake News Hacks Re-Tool ‘Russian Collusion’ Hoax to Smear Both President Trump and Bernie Sanders
The establishment desperately wants to suppress populism.
The evil Russian bogeyman is back again, following likely deep state leaks indicating that Russian President Vladimir Putin plans to support President Donald Trump as well as Democrat presidential front-runner Bernie Sanders in 2020.
The Washington Post reported today that Sanders has been briefed about how the evil Rooskies are supporting him:
U.S. officials have told Sen. Bernie Sanders that Russia is attempting to help his presidential campaign as part of an effort to interfere with the Democratic contest, according to people familiar with the matter.
“I don’t care, frankly, who Putin wants to be president,” Sanders said in a statement to The Washington Post. “My message to Putin is clear: Stay out of American elections, and as president I will make sure that you do.”
… Also this week, a senior U.S. intelligence official said Russia had “developed a preference” for Trump in the 2020 campaign — an assessment that infuriated the president. Trump lambasted his acting intelligence director, Joseph Maguire, and DNI staff for sharing that information with lawmakers, believing that Democrats would use it to hurt Trump in the election.
Considering Trump will be the Republican nominee for president and Sanders is the front-runner to win the Democrat nomination to face him, it is hard to conceive how Putin could help both men win office. But that hasn’t stopped the fake news from pushing the hysterics yet again, as they work to foment neo-McCarthyism.
Media: Jim @Acosta to @wolfblitzer: "A source present for this briefing … said the information relayed to lawmakers made it clear #Russia has already begun interfering in the 2020 election … Asked whether the information presented was alarming,' the source said, 'Very.'" pic.twitter.com/CFmcjI9d2w

So Russia wants a race between Sanders and Trump. They probably want Tulsi Gabbard as Bernie’s running mate. And no question they will help Moscow Mitch get re-elected. What a monumental mess Trump has made of America! He will let this happen. Putin’s USA. https://t.co/WiNtTOYK4T

So @BernieSanders was told by U.S. government officials that Russia has been working to help him win the Democratic primary, and he said NOTHING publicly??? This is OUTRAGEOUS! How is it any different than what Trump has done?? 😠

This should not be a surprise to anyone, is consistent with their enduring strategy & mirrors the analysis of @FPRI #FIE2020 team “Bernie Sanders briefed by U.S. officials that Russia is trying to help his presidential campaign” https://t.co/eO0DocweEE
— Clint Watts (@selectedwisdom) February 21, 2020
.@BernieSanders says he was briefed by federal officials one month ago that Russia was boosting his campaign.
Why did he never tell the American people? pic.twitter.com/xqG7aDWRmk

As I reported in 2016, Russian state media had two candidates they were rooting for: Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. They were the candidates that, in the Kremlin's view, would 1) create the most chaos in the establishment, thereby weakening the U.S., 2) be friendlier to Russia.
— Julia Ioffe (@juliaioffe) February 21, 2020
And why didn’t Bernie Sanders tell us a month ago that Russia was trying to help his campaign? Did we not have a right to know this?
Or to know about his heart attack?
Or to see his medical records?
Or to see his tax returns that he hid for four years?
See a trend? https://t.co/zmLVrvKnc4

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump refuses to play ball with the fake news media and justify their phony concerns about the Russians.
“I was told a week ago — they said, ‘you know they’re trying to start a rumor,'” Trump said at a “Keep America Great” rally in Las Vegas on Thursday night.
“It’s disinformation — that’s the only thing they’re good at, they’re not good at anything else, the get-nothing, the do-nothing Democrats — that Putin wants to make sure I get elected,” he said.
Trump also threw a little fuel in the fire to create more paranoia within the deranged Dems about the possibility of Bernie being a Russian asset.
“Doesn’t he want to see who the Democrats are gonna be? Wouldn’t he rather have, say, Bernie? ” Trump said.
The Russian hysteria didn’t work the first time they tried it, and it is not likely to work this time around as nobody believes the lies of the fake news, Democrats and deep state anymore.
