Glen Greenwald is perhaps the last remaining honest "progressive" reporter in the world. He's a gay, left-leaning reporter who despises President Trump. Yet Greenwald recognizes the pathetic hypocrisy of the left-wing media and its brazen abandonment of logic, reason and journalism. That's why I'm quoting heavily from Greenwald's piece here, entitled, "Robert Mueller Did Not Merely Reject the Trump/Russia Conspiracy Theories. He Obliterated Them."
"Mueller – contrary to weeks of false media claims – did not merely issue a narrow, cramped, legalistic finding that there was insufficient evidence to indict Trump associates for conspiring with Russia and then proving their guilt beyond a reasonable doubt," Greenwald writes. "That would have been devastating enough to those who spent the last two years or more misleading people to believe that conspiracy convictions of Trump’s closest aides and family members were inevitable... Mueller, in addition to concluding that evidence was insufficient to charge any American with crimes relating to Russian election interference, also stated emphatically in numerous instances that there was no evidence – not merely that there was insufficient evidence to obtain a criminal conviction – that key prongs of this three-year-old conspiracy theory actually happened."
In other words, the Mueller report annihilates every last shred of the conspiracy house of cards that Democrats and left-leaning journalists have been peddling for years. Greenwald writes:
Several of the media’s most breathless and hyped “bombshells” were dismissed completely by Mueller. Regarding various Trump officials’ 2016 meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, Mueller said they were “brief, public and nonsubstantive.” Concerning the much-hyped change to GOP platform regarding Ukraine, Mueller wrote that the “evidence does not establish that one campaign official’s efforts to dilute a portion of the Republican platform was undertaken at the behest of candidate Trump or Russia..." Mueller also characterized a widely hyped “meeting” between then-Senator Jeff Sessions and Kislyak as one that did not “include any more than a passing mention of the presidential campaign.” Regarding one of the most-cited pieces of evidence by Trump/Russia conspiracists – that Russia tried once Trump was nominated to shape his foreign policy posture toward Russia – Mueller concluded that there is simply no evidence to support it.
Remarkably, despite years of investigations, hundreds of subpoenas and millions of dollars spent, in the end there wasn't a single American who has been charged with anything remotely related to conspiracy to work with the Russians. In fact, there isn't even a single shred of evidence linking any American at all to such antics.
As Greenwald explains:
But so vacant is the Mueller investigation when it comes to supporting any of the prevailing conspiracy theories that it did not find even a single American whom it could indict or charge with illegally working for Russia, secretly acting as a Russian agent, or conspiring with the Russians over the election – not even Carter Page. That means that even long-time Russiagate skeptics such as myself over-estimated the level of criminality and conspiracy evidence that Robert Mueller would find...
In sum, Democrats and their supporters had the exact prosecutor they all agreed was the embodiment of competence and integrity in Robert Mueller. He assembled a team of prosecutors and investigators that countless media accounts heralded as the most aggressive and adept in the nation. They had subpoena power, the vast surveillance apparatus of the U.S. government at their disposal, a demonstrated willingness to imprison anyone who lied to them, and unlimited time and resources to dig up everything they could.
The result of all of that was that not a single American – whether with the Trump campaign or otherwise – was charged or indicted on the core question of whether there was any conspiracy or coordination with Russia over the election. No Americans were charged or even accused of being controlled by or working at the behest of the Russian government. None of the key White House aides at the center of the controversy who testified for hours and hours – including Donald Trump, Jr. or Jared Kushner – were charged with any crimes of any kind, not even perjury, obstruction of justice or lying to Congress.
As Greenwald goes on to explain, the revelations found in the Mueller report utterly obliterate the Rachel Maddow / MSNBC / CNN / Adam Schiff / Maxine Waters / Jerry Nadler conspiracy nut cases who have been knowingly deceiving the American people for years:
These facts are fatal to the conspiracy theorists who have drowned U.S. discourse for almost three years with a dangerous and distracting fixation on a fictitious espionage thriller involved unhinged claims of sexual and financial blackmail, nefarious infiltration of the U.S. Government by familiar foreign villains, and election cheating that empowered an illegitimate President. They got the exact prosecutor and investigation that they wanted, yet he could not establish that any of this happened and, in many cases, established that it did not.
Astonishingly, the very same fake news "journalists" who pushed their false narrative all these years are now defending their actions instead of apologizing for them.
"I’m not going to let people say that, you know, CNN or the media, or whatever, have been creating a false narrative," CNN host Chris Cuomo stated on air, as reported by Breitbart News.
Yes, CNN is now tripling down on this massive hoax, claiming every single one of its reports was factually true... even though the entire network has now been exposed as a complete joke.
Yet CNN's fake hacks are still somehow convinced they are God's gift to journalism. "The reporting was, almost in every case correct," says CNN reporter Chris Cillizza. "All that reporting, we and a lot of other outlets did, had it nailed."
For over two years, we've been told by CNN and other fake news media outlets that Trump colluded with Russia, that the evidence to prove the collusion existed in abundance, and that Robert Mueller's report would collapse the Trump presidency and lead to his arrest, impeachment and removal from office.
In truth, Robert Mueller's report found zero evidence of collusion, no conclusion of obstruction and no Russian conspiracies committed by any Americans at all.
Yet desperate Democrats and fake news hacks are now tripling down on their massive hoax, continuing to claim the Mueller Report somehow proves that Trump colluded with Russia and must be impeached.
We have finally reached "peak delusion" in America where Democrats flee from facts as if they were Ebola. Facts are actually offensive to Democrats, so they invent their own fake facts to replace real facts in order to keep their demented delusions alive.
There is no shame among all those on the Left who lied, colluded, leaked and committed criminal acts to try to destroy President Trump and bring down our constitutional Republic. And it's now abundantly clear that these horrible people absolutely will not stop spreading destabilizing lies until they are arrested at gunpoint, indicted for their criminal behavior and put behind bars to stop them from hurting America any further.
It's time to arrest and prosecute all those involved in the deep state coup attempt against President Trump, and this includes all the fake news hacks -- don't even pretend to call them "journalists" -- at CNN, WashPost, NYT, MSNBC, Buzzfeed and all the other radical left-wing fake news rags that very nearly ripped America to shreds in their effort to destroy our democratically elected president.
It's time for Trump to dispatch the Military Police to carry out mass arrests across America. The American people are with you, President Trump. And it's time to shut down the domestic enemies who have been working feverishly to try to destroy America from within.
