The Mueller Report
Just to be clear, I have now made it through the first page of the report. There are two key lines on page one. The first is “The Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in a sweeping and systematic fashion.” It does not say they tried to interfere; it says they interfered.
The second line on page one of the report spills over to the second page. It is “Although the investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, and the Campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts, the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”
When Trump says there is “no collusion” he is technically correct. The investigation could not establish that. However, this line establishes the fact that the campaign was aware of the Russian efforts and expected to benefit electorally from their interference. They knew and expected to benefit. They are complicit in this event.
Why do you suppose Trump is constantly crowing about his electoral victory, over and over again? Even at CPAC this year, “There is no way to 270”? You know what that means, right? “There is no way to 270.” They couldn’t get me there. We might as well have just given up. But there wasn’t any way to 270.” He was harping again. Is this some constant psychological reinforcement of his legitimacy? Maybe “They” did get him there. The second line quoted from the Mueller report lays out that the campaign was aware of the “They” trying to help with those numbers. Is it some deep-seated monster from his id that is whispering to his fragile ego?
There is a totally separate investigation going on about why he refuses to release his tax returns. I suspect that that 10 billion dollars he may possess in one form or another is leveraged to the 10 billion dollars he owes on loans from Deutsche Bank and other entities. This entity alone has ties to Russian money laundering and has been fined for it. They had to put systems in place that would notify the US Treasure Department of suspicious activity after they were convicted of money laundering, and they never forwarded those reports to the Treasure Department. Those answers will come out from Congress’s investigations. If not in investigations, then in his impeachment trial in the Senate for all the world to see. That is if anyone in the Senate has read the report and are not complicit. I am amazed that some intelligence community on this planet has not released Trump’s financials. They must have them.
Anybody who has read the Mueller Report knows that this is not over. But Donald J. Trump has not read it. I doubt that he has made it through the first page. So, whoever is propping up his fragile ego with the “this is over” story, is complicit for their own reasons. Stay tune for more as I get through the rest of this.
