One line from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's opening statement just completely ended the Democrats entire Trump-Russia collusion case.
rnDuring his testimony on Wednesday before two House committees, Mueller made one bombshell claim that vindicated President Donald Trump.
rnDuring his opening remarks, Mueller said: “The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”
rnSo after a two-year long investigation and just shy of $40 million of taxpayer funds spent, Mueller plainly stated -- both in his report and during his testimony -- that there is no evidence that Trump, anyone on his campaign, or any American colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
rnMueller further said in his opening statement: “I do not intend to summarize or describe the results of our work in a different way in the course of my testimony today. As I said on May 29: the report is my testimony. And I will stay within that text.”
rn“We did not address collusion, which is not a legal term,” the former special counsel said. “Rather, we focused on whether the evidence was sufficient to charge any member of the campaign with taking part in a criminal conspiracy. It was not.”
rnBack in April, Attorney General William Barr put the final nail in the collusion coffin and made it clear that Mueller found no evidence of collusion or obstruction of justice.
rnDuring his press conference from the Department of Justice, Barr reiterated countless times that Mueller found no evidence that Trump, his campaign, or any American colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
rnSo that is the bottom line. After nearly two years of investigation, thousands of subpoenas, and hundreds of warrants and witness interviews, the Special Counsel confirmed that the Russian government sponsored efforts to illegally interfere with the 2016 presidential election but did not find that the Trump campaign or other Americans colluded in those schemes.
Barr also stated that Mueller left it up to the Department of Justice to determine if the president obstructed justice.rn
rnThe attorney general said he consulted with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and they both determined there was no evidence to charge Trump with obstructing justice in the Russia probe.
rnThe president has been completely vindicated after the two-year Russia witch hunt.
rnRegardless of what Democrats say, Mueller's report makes it clear that there's no evidence of collusion or obstruction.
