On the cusp of what will surely be a disappointing report for the radical left from Special Counsel Robert Mueller III’s office on alleged “Russian collusion,” Democrats are beginning to turn on Mueller.
“What we are interested in is, does the president have business dealings with Russia such that it compromises the United States?” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said on “Meet the Press” Sunday “[I]f the special counsel hasn’t subpoenaed Deutsche Bank, he can’t be doing much of a money laundering investigation.”
The investigation into President Donald J. Trump’s non-existent “collusion” with Russia has been underway for 18 months. Apparently 18 months of work resulting in zero evidence of wrongdoing does not sit well with Schiff, who is certain that Trump has committed crimes. He’s just not sure which crimes. In fact, finding no evidence of wrongdoing, in Schiff’s eyes, actually proves that Mueller is not “doing much of a money laundering investigation.” The House Intelligence Committee member wants Mueller to keep digging into Trump.
But that is not how the justice system is supposed to operate in the United States. Despite whether the radical left thinks Trump should be thrown in jail, in America, we investigate crimes, not people. The scope of the investigation is already broader than what should be acceptable under the law, and still no wrongdoing has been found, other than process crimes stemming from the investigation itself.
This is behavior of totalitarians, not those who care about due process and rule of law. But then, we already knew that Democrats do not care about those things.
The crux of the Deutsche Bank claim is that they lended money to Trump in 1990’s and subsequently were penalized for letting Russian clients launder billions of dollars of money overseas. What does this have to do with Trump, or supposed “collusion?” Nothing.

FBI Director Christopher Wray Blames Sovereign Citizens, Militias for Summer’s BLM/ANTIFA Riots
The FBI has become a joke.
FBI Director Christopher Wray blamed sovereign citizen movements and militias for the summer’s unprecedented and historical riots, in which almost 30 Americans were killed, 700 law enforcement officers were injured, and 14,000 people were arrested.
Wray was responding to a question in a Tuesday hearing posed by Senator Ted Cruz. Cruz was inquiring as to the FBI’s plan to deter and prevent mob-style riot crime in American cities, with Wray’s answers seeming to suggest the agency has no real plan to avoid a repeat of the experiences of summer 2020 later this year.
In reality, the summer’s riots are almost entirely the fault of Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA. BLM engaged in an onslaught of destruction targeting small businesses and powerless members of American communities, after the controversial death of George Floyd.
Wray made a token allusion to “anarchist” extremism, before citing sovereign citizens and militias for BLM/ANTIFA’s violence.
“A lot of that activity fell in what we would categorize as anti-government, anti-authority violent extremism. Some of it is anarchist, violent extremism; some of it is militia violent extremism. Some of it might even be sovereign citizen violent extremism.“
Wray made no reference to the criminal Black Lives Matter riot movement, or the street terror cult known as ANTIFA. He did reference a Patriot Prayer demonstrator who was shot and killed by an ANTIFA militant in Portland.
With Biden’s ascension to the Presidential Throne, Democrats are chomping at the bit at the prospect of using powerful and unaccountable federal law enforcement agencies to gin up bogus accusations and surveillance of patriotic Donald Trump supporters and America First advocates. Don’t expect the FBI to arrive on the scene if ANTIFA/BLM crime explodes in the summer- unless, of course, a so-called “extremist” can be found on the scene waiving an American flag.
