The Mueller report is finally out, and there are numerous links between the Trump campaign and people connected to the Russian government. After the special’s 23-month investigation which produced 2,300 subpoenas, and 500 search warrants, that lead to indictments against 34 people, Trump is calling the report, “President Harassment.”
The Trump campaign and his administration has been an international criminal enterprise that lies and has no respect for the rule of law. With the release of the Mueller report, all Americans must ask the questions in their heart, “Do we believe the president has committed impeachable offenses, and are we proud of his behavior as the President of The United States?”
When a candidate is running for the office of president, and he lies about his business deals, and political meeting with its enemy Russia, the citizens can no longer trust anything he says or does.
“The Constitution doesn’t anticipate that Congress shall discharge its duty to impeach a president who has committed high crimes and misdemeanors only if it’s electorally convenient. It says that, that is your duty,” says Joy Reid, host of MSNBC.
When you start to read the beginning of Mueller’s report, you know that something has gone astray, and the rule of law is not supported by the administration in power.
“In late July soon after WikiLeaks’s release of stolen documents, a foreign government contacted the FBI about a May 2016 encounter with the Trump campaign foreign policy advisor, George Papadopoulos. Papadopoulos had suggested to a representative of that foreign government that the Trump campaign had received indication from the Russian government that it could assist the campaign through the anonymous release of information damaging to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton,” says the Mueller report.
From the very beginning of the campaign, the Trump’s team played dirty, and the president encouraged it and expected the top brass to cheat. The more dirt the Trump’s team could dig up, the better it was for the campaign.
The FBI was well aware that the Trump’s team was playing dirty, so they started an investigation before the Mueller investigation. Some will call it collusion and others call it obstruction of justice, but they were sure someone was going to jail for breaking the law. The FBI does not open an investigation without evidence.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren last week became the first Democratic presidential candidate to call on the House to begin impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump. “The severity of this misconduct demands that elected officials in both parties set aside political considerations and do their constitutional duty. That means the House should initiate impeachment proceedings against the President of the United States.”
The Mueller report is sickening says Sen. Mitt Romney, but the big question is who in the two Houses is going to take a stand for justice and the rule of law. Everyone has the ability to play semantics, procrastinate, and look and find excuses, instead of acting. With the release of the report, the only word legislators should be speaking is impeachment.
When the president of the United States welcomes assistance and gets help from an enemy government, and takes multiple steps to stop an investigation, it should be considered a threat to our government. When you cannot trust anything that our leader in chief says as the truth, he must be removed from office.
Our federal legislators must do their job and impeach the seating president. The president has broken the law and excuses will not solve the severity of the president’s misconduct and deeds. A foreign government attacked our electoral system, and President Donald Trump and his campaign welcomed their help.
