Any actual patriotic American should have a problem with having a president who willingly accepted the criminal support of a hostile foreign government in order to help get elected speak at a celebration of US independence from a hostile foreign government. Having a Russian quisling take part in official July 4th festivities sort of misses the point of the holiday.

Special counsel Mueller was tasked with investigating conspiracy or coordination between team Trump and the Russians. Willingly accepting criminal help from the Russians clearly falls within the scope of this investigation, yet the investigation yielded no criminal indictments for these offenses. But that doesn't stop you from venting your unreasoned hatred of Trump. Orange man bad.

Amazingly, we used to ask more of our President than that he just not break federal criminal laws. Mueller concluded that willingly accepting the criminal support of a hostile foreign government is not a crime. That doesn’t mean that it wasn’t a gross abuse of the public trust.

If it had come out after the 2008 election that the Obama campaign had been in secret discussions with the Iranian government and that the Iranian government committed dozens of felonies to help the campaign and that the Obama campaign knew about, encouraged and tried to cover up those crimes, you people would have (correctly) been calling for his immediate impeachment. To deny that would be foolish.

People need to desperately put a cork in this Russian collusion, and wait until Hillary and her baboons get charged with it. Patience. Her ass will be slung in no time.

You carelessly sling accusations of the Trump administration conspiring or coordinating with Russian criminal activity, directly contradicted by Mueller's report, but when confronted by the facts it's back to the politicized declaration of abuse of the "public trust."

Wild conjecture about an imaginary relationship between Obama and the Iranians only exposes the desperation of the Trump hating Resistance after the Russian collusion narrative collapsed. In the real world House Democrats have the means to start impeachment proceedings right now but instead they choose to put on a carnival side shop complete with a bucket of fried chicken and stage psuedo impeachment hearings. No fantasy is necessary the Democrats actions show their blind obsession unambiguously.

Uh, the secret contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian government operatives are well documented in the Mueller report. As are the dozens of felonies the Russians committed to help Trump get elected. And, the report also documents the fact that the Trump campaign knew about those crimes and welcomed them and then tried to cover them up. It also documents the efforts of Trump to block any investigation of his campaign's contacts with the Russians and those Russian crimes. The fact that it doesn’t fit within some arbitrary definition of “collusion” doesn’t diminish the seriousness of those actions. Face it, you people have chosen to defend the indefensible.
