Pressure by your fake Attorney General, William Barr, resulted in charges against an admitted criminal, Michael Flynn, being dismissed. Yesterday, your illegitimate and corrupt president commuted Roger Stones sentence; he would have entered prison on Tuesday. Stone was convicted on seven counts of lying to congress. There is no longer any doubt that Trump and everyone who associates with him is a criminal, and unfit to hold office or be a member of a presidential administration.
Here are a few of the lies told by Trump in a pitiful effort to justify his release of another of his criminal associates.
First, a statement by Trump’s paid liar, Kayleigh McEnany.
“”Today, President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Grant of Clemency commuting the unjust sentence of Roger Stone, Jr. Roger Stone is a victim of the Russia Hoax that the Left and its allies in the media perpetuated for years in an attempt to undermine the Trump Presidency.”
I’ve heard this so many times I no longer find it humorous. The only “hoax” is Trump’s illegitimate presidency.
Trump continues to claim that the Mueller report exonerated him from collusion with Vladimir Putin in 2016; this is a blatant falsehood.
Mueller said the investigation “did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”
Although Trump continues to lie and claim that there was no contact between his campaign staff and Russian agents, the Mueller report discovered dozens of meetings between multiple members of Trump’s staff and the Trump Klan.
Trump claims that the charges against multiple members of his team and his personal associates during the Mueller investigation were biased and a substitute for its failure to find sufficient evidence to charge Trump himself. There is no evidence to support Trump’s allegations. However, there is a preponderance of evidence which was used to convict Flynn and Stone among others, including Paul Manafort, and Michael Cohen.
Another claim by Trump and his circle of sinners is that Mueller and his team were “out of control.” Mueller was closely scrutinized by Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, then acting AG Matt Whittaker, and eventually William Barr. Any of the three could have reassigned or terminated any member of Mueller’s team.
It is asinine to claim that Mueller’s team was “focused” on a Stone conviction. His and many other names appeared during a lengthy investigation into the illegitimate 2016 election. I have no doubt after reading thousands of reports from legitimate news sources that every member of Trump’s campaign staff, and every family member could have been indicted over time.
Trump claims that Stone was a “respected Republican Consultant for 50 years” and should not have been tried. Here’s what the judge said at Stone’s sentencing.
“He was not convicted and is not being sentenced for exercising his First Amendment rights, his support of the President’s campaign or his policies. He was not prosecuted, as some have complained, for standing up for the President. He was prosecuted for covering up for the President.”
The list of false claims by Trump and his paid liars goes on and on. You can read the entire sordid story if you choose in the attached article.
The truth is that Trump is a mentally deficient malignant narcissist. Given power, individuals with these severe mental problems become maniacal. “Absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
Trump should lose badly in November. After January 20, 2021, my hope is that he will be tried for numerous criminal actions and die in a prison. He will be wearing his favorite color, orange.
