Lew Rockwell by Michael S. Rozeff
Adam Schiff: “…if we don’t impeach him [Trump], that sends a message that this kind of conduct, this obstruction of justice, this kind of willing use of the help of a foreign adversary, all of the lies and cover-up, that this is non-impeachable.”
Trump didn’t obstruct justice in any way, shape or form. He cooperated with Mueller voluminously. Neither Schiff nor a Democrat majority in the House can prove that count. They can’t make it stick. If they impeach on that count, they’ll lose politically and they’ll lose in the Senate. They themselves will look bad.
Mueller’s report reads (page 2) “…the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”
Therefore, Schiff’s charge of “willing use of the help of a foreign adversary” likewise has no basis. Contacts with Russians were trivial and superficial; the anti-Trump forces have blown these contacts way out of proportion.
More importantly, there has never been a lawful basis for the FBI investigating Trump and his associates on this score in 2016, under the instigation of Brennan and the Obama administration using the Steele dossier as a pretext.
Mueller produced no evidence at all that Trump or his associates colluded with Russia, foreign Adversary or not. Mueller’s conclusion says this baldly: “…the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”
Schiff lastly mentions “all of the lies and cover-up”. He’s making this up, using boilerplate from Watergate. There has been no cover-up of any crimes on the Trump campaign side, because there were no crimes of the campaign. Mueller didn’t come up with any such crimes. Paul Manafort committed some personal crimes in earlier years and so may have Michael Cohen. These are not connected to Trump or his campaign[…]
