As President Trump continues to cruise toward his reelection, the left is simply going to have to throw the kitchen sink at him in order to stand a chance of even staying relevant.
Their incessant “resistance” has spawned so many cockamamy theories and so much conspiracy fodder that it can be hard at times to keep up with it all. The latest scandal involving Ukraine mirrored the big-daddy of all Trumpian controversies – RussiaGate – and was even said to contain an element of the Putin-centric proposition itself.
You see, if Trump was really looking for dirt on the Biden’s as the left claims, then using Ukraine to do so would immediately behoove The Kremlin, as it would draw criticism of the tiny European nation that Putin would like to have back under his control.
But Trump was acquitted on the articles of impeachment that leached out of the UkraineGate scandal, and so the left is reverting back to complaining about RussiaGate.
A federal judge has vowed to review an unredacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation in order to determine if those redactions, ordered by Attorney General William Barr, were warranted and followed federal guidelines.
U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton, who is presiding over a lawsuit brought forth by the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) — a nonprofit in Washington, D.C., focused on privacy and First Amendment issues — in conjunction with BuzzFeed News, said that an independent review of the full, unredacted report is necessary because he has “grave concerns about the objectivity” of Barr’s Justice Department in authorizing redactions in line with department rules and exemptions allowed under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
Walton — who was appointed to the bench by former President George W. Bush and was a former FISA court judge — said in his ruling Thursday that Barr’s “lack of candor” is evidenced by his decision to release a summary of the Mueller report effectively exonerating Trump from potential charges of obstruction without the report being made available to the public so they could draw their own conclusions.
Robert Mueller himself concluded that he would not be charging the President with a crime, albeit in confusing verbiage that the Democrats have taken to mean that Mueller believed he couldn’t indict a sitting President due to a longstanding judicial opinion.
