A disgrace, an embarrassment, but most worryingly, a total incompetent.

We elected a crime syndicate when we put the Trump family in office in 2016.

Send this criminal back to reality TV show and let's restore some decency, competency, and morality back to the White House...

Glad to see that this is correctly filed in the "opinions" section.

Your opinion is duly noted Ms. Julie Pace, if you're an American citizen you can voice your opinion at the ballot box in just under two years.

First there’s no collusion, now it’s the end of The Donald. Obviously not objective; sounds more like sower grapes to me.

0 ( +5 / -5 )

As far as collusion goes, the report showed LOTS of it. What it didn't find was enough to support a charge of criminal conspiracy. Apparently, Don the Con was so inept, he couldn't even organize a conspiracy because his people just ignored him.

America was saved through the ineptitude of the moron they elected.

The biggest laughs from the Mueller report;

The "Deep State" and "Resistance" aren't Democrats - they're all the closet members of the Trump administration! Rather than blocking his efforts, their failure to carry out his criminal instructions saved them from a co-conspirator charge and kept Donnie out of an orange jumpsuit (for the time being).

Then you have Donnie who for two years has falsely accused the investigation as a witch hunt, denigrating Mueller and calling his team "13 angry Democrats"....

Yet on 25 Mar, after Barr gave his summary, he said;

Trump, after giving a prepared statement with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, was asked whether Mueller acted honorably throughout his investigation into whether Russia colluded with Trump's presidential campaign. "Yes he did," the president replied.

Now, as more details emerge of Trump issuing directing clearly criminal actions to his subordinates, he flip-flops again in an unhinged Twitter rant;

President Trump stepped up his attacks against special counsel Robert Mueller early Saturday morning, claiming Mueller's recently released report "was written as nastily as possible" by "true Trump Haters."

In a string of early morning tweets, Trump lashed out at Mueller, calling him "highly conflicted" and once again declaring the special counsel's investigation "the greatest Witch Hunt in U.S. political history."

"Despite the fact that the Mueller Report should not have been authorized in the first place & was written as nastily as possible by 13 (18) Angry Democrats who were true Trump Haters, including highly conflicted Bob Mueller himself.

Trump is mentally ill - he's incapable of governing, let alone holding the nuclear button. The sooner his supporters realize this, the better for our country, and the world...

Trump is mentally ill - he's incapable of governing, let alone holding the nuclear button.

Not according to his accomplishments, he seems to be doing fine. Anyway, glad that this witch hunt is over, we can all go back to our lives, let Nadler and company ruin it for the Democrats AGAIN.

The sooner his supporters realize this, the better for our country, and the world...

I wish the same about the haters and the msm media realizing you can’t get what you want by whining, wondering if CNN will ever learn that.

The "Deep State" and "Resistance" aren't Democrats

I dare you to say that to the face of the Gilets Jaunes / Yellow Vests. 23 weeks of protests.

The Mueller report: The world's biggest never mind.

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

Trump failed in his obstruction attempts because his staff succeeded in stoping him from committing a crime.

1 ( +4 / -3 )

So in a nutshell, no collusion proved despite 2 yr intensive probe, Trump free to carry on with no charges to be laid while the Despercrates try to imply wrong doing in case their supporters lose faith, when will the Left ever learn?

0 ( +3 / -3 )

Trump failed in his obstruction attempts because his staff succeeded in stoping him from committing a crime.

And that’s a great thing. Thank God for his staff!

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

And that’s a great thing. Thank God for his staff!

it would still be a conspiracy to commit a crime even if he failed. Need a president who don’t need protecting from himself.

This quote is one of the funniest I've read here on JT - what he's saying is "thank God there were some people in the Trump administration that had some sense of patriotism and integrity left, that they refused to carry out the clearly criminal directions of the President..." Think about that for a minute....then think, all those people are gone now, so who's left to stop this Criminal in Chief from his crime mob tendencies?

I guess you can call those former staff members the Repub Deep State or Resistance...

Mueller obviously decided to let Congress decide Trump's fate because a large part of the issue involved the fact that Trump tried to have Mueller himself fired. Trump's firing of Comey was one of his many big mistakes as that lead to Mueller being appointed. Bad luck Trump fans but this is just the end of the beginning of this whole investigation. Now facts have been revealed by Mueller that clearly indicate Trump obstructed justice (or tried to which is basically the same thing because it shows intent), it is only natural that Trump's actions need to be investigated further. Sensible Republicans understand this too because, if these things aren't investigated thoroughly, any future president can get away with doing such things and that can not and should not be allowed.

Trump painted this self-portrait over his entire life. Mueller simply framed and mounted if for everyone to see.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

And that’s a great thing. Thank God for his staff!

so you admit Trump tried to commit a crime.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

No problem, if anyone has any proof that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia why not drop a line to R. Mueller and co. Bob may appreciate your input since he and his team couldn't find any evidence, I suppose the Left have to carry on with this as the alternative truth would mean they were wrong all along, think about it.

@bass4funk

And that’s a great thing. Thank God for his staff!

You've failed to understand something there. Trump was directing other people to commit crimes on his behalf. Those people did not have the protections that a president has, and would have been fully exposed to the legal consequences of their actions. Even the shower of corrupt turds that Trump has populated the White House with are capable of understanding this much.

The coup attempt failed. And a coup attempt it certainly was.

Yup!

Thank you - I'm glad we finally have some Trumpers here who admit he's a crook...

Oh, by the way, no more indictments, it’s over! Mueller and his band of merrily angry Democrats couldn’t topple the President.

Merry band of Democrats? I thought Donnie called him "honorable"....

Think about that for a minute....then think, all those people are gone now, so who's left to stop this Criminal in Chief from his crime mob tendencies?

Not Bernie or Biden.....Maybe Booker?

I don't think any of them would be caught dead in the Trump Crime Family administration. Now Vinnie from the Bronx, maybe....

I guess you can call those former staff members the Repub Deep State or Resistance.

Yes, sir!

Well again, thanks. I appreciate you admitting all your previous conspiracy theories on a Democratic Deep State was just a fairy tale...

The coup attempt failed. And a coup attempt it certainly was.

A coup it was in 2016, by Donnie and Vlad - comrades in arms - and corruption...

Thank you - I'm glad we finally have some Trumpers here who admit he's a crook...

I think all politicians are shady, some more than others, but I like ours better.

Merry band of Democrats? I thought Donnie called him "honorable"..

Not the investigating ones...

I don't think any of them would be caught dead in the Trump Crime Family administration. Now Schiff, Nadler, Schumer, maybe....

Well again, thanks. I appreciate you admitting all your previous conspiracy theories on a Democratic Deep State was just a fairy tale...

I never said, nor have I eluded to that notion, I know how active the Democrat deep state swamp is and the attempts to wage political jihad and create a coup to dispose of this President. Put that statement down for the record so there’s no confusion.

A coup it was in 2016

Exactly and it failed miserably for the Democrats.....again....lol

Most politicians are shady, some aren't. But some, like Nixon and Trump, are so deeply criminal that they shouldn't be let anywhere near the White House...

??? Mueller led the investigation - and Donnie called him honorable - you disagree with Trump?

I don't think any of them would be caught dead in the Trump Crime Family administration. Now Schiff, Nadler, Schumer, maybe....

I don't care who it is as long as the continue the Repub Resistance to the Criminal in Chief...

Well I'm confused. Mueller proved that the only Deep State is in the White house - McGahn, Lewandowski, Porter, who all refused to be part of Trump's felonies. The Resistance is Republican!

A coup it was in 2016

Exactly and it failed miserably for the Democrats.....again....lol

Donnie and Vlad - wonder why there was no US translator in their meetings...

If they can't even find jack in your inner circle beyond some dude who laundered money ten years before he was even part of your political campaign after investigating thousands of people, trust me, you are very squeaky clean, cleaner than most people if they were investigated that way.

If they can't even find jack in your inner circ

They found Jack, Jill, and everyone else who lived on the hill.

Thr report proves beyond any doubt that Trump is corrupt and treasonous. It just determined that only Congress can prosecute him. Nearly the opposite of an exoneration.

Trump is clearly guilty. Lock him up.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

@stranger

Lock him you say, so why didn't they? Trump wanted to stop the probe because it was damaging to his Presidency not because he was guilty. He is guilty of allowing his temper cloud his judgement but i can understand it.

One point that is proven would be the bias shown by the media, 11 CNN reporters fired and several more from other agencies as well, the left don't like the success Trump has had with the economy, Obama himself has tried to grab the credit even though Obama never achieved the same Dow results or the economic growth figures. Trumps in the clear so you can either just accept it or grind ya gears for the next 5 yrs, up to you.

BTW, the FBI or other Intelligence agencies do not get to decide who becomes President and stay President, that belongs to the people, if you don't believe this was an attempted coup answer this question,

what did Peter Strozk mean by an "insurance policy"? Not hard to work out.

And that’s a great thing. Thank God for his staff!

You're happy the president's staff doesn't listen to him or that he's so stupid his staff saves him from himself?

Trump is clearly guilty.

In lala land.

A coup it was in 2016, by Donnie and Vlad - comrades in arms - and corruption...

Do you have any evidence to back this up? Because Mueller couldn't find any...
