Former Trump Campaign Manager Rick Gates Calls On President To Pardon Everyone Convicted by Mueller

While President Donald Trump’s legions of supporters suspected that the ‘Russian collusion’ investigation launched by special counsel Robert Mueller in 2017 was as fake as the news reporting the allegations, it took nearly two years for the former FBI director to finally announce that he hadn’t found any evidence to support the allegation.
That’s because there was never even any real suspicion on the part of the corrupt Obama administration that the 2016 Trump campaign colluded with Moscow to win the election.
No, that lie was apparently cooked up by the president’s Democratic rival, long-time DC swamp snake Hillary Clinton, we now know, thanks to the declassification of that revelation by Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe earlier this month.

But regarding Mueller’s BS probe, the end result that Clinton is responsible for the collusion hoax means that everyone charged and convicted by his team of Hillary donors was a target not of legitimate law enforcement efforts but rank political persecution.
And as such, their convictions and records ought to be forgiven, expunged…pardoned by the president himself.
So says Rick Gates, Trump’s one-time 2016 campaign manager.
The Mental Recession notes:
Former Trump campaign manager Rick Gates is calling on the President to pardon everyone convicted of a crime in the Mueller probe, something he defines as “fraudulent.”
Gates pled guilty to conspiracy against the United States and making false statements in the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
He was sentenced to 45 days in jail and three years probation last December, having cooperated in the investigation against another Trump campaign associate, Paul Manafort.
“Look, I think everybody should be ultimately forgiven in this process, particularly since it was an absolute fraudulent process,” Gates told MSNBC’s Ari Melber this week.
But that was after Melber tried to bait Gates into trashing the president – because MSNBC doesn’t do real journalism, they do ‘gotcha’ ‘hit piece’ journalism – since Trump has already pardoned Mueller’s last legal victim, long-time associate Roger Stone.
“If you went through this and your family went through this and the president goes in and intercedes and keeps Roger out of prison but not you, is that fair?” asked Melber.
But Gates didn't bite.
“What I think is that everyone involved in this was part of a structure to take down the president,” he responded. “I think everybody should have an opportunity where the president says: ‘This is not right, this is not fair,’ and, yeah, ultimately, he pardons all of us.”
Agreed. There was never anything legitimate about Mueller’s probe, especially when it came to his first victim, retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the president’s short-lived first national security adviser. The only reason Mueller’s garbage ‘prosecutors’ got a guilty plea was that they threatened to go after his son, who – like his father – had not done anything wrong.
One more thing is obvious: Trump will have to continue to clean houses at the FBI, Justice Department, and intelligence community after he gets reelected.
The fact that there have not been dozens of indictments for the very real crimes of sedition against him is a disgrace and shows need for large-scale firings.
