Alabama Republicans: Mueller report shows no collusion, conspiracies or obstruction


Thursday, the U.S. Department of Justice released a redacted Mueller report. Alabama Republicans said that the whole special counsel investigation “was a waste of time,” and exonerates President Donald Trump. Republicans say that the report shows there was no collusion, was no conspiracy and was no coverup.

Alabama Republican Party Chairman Terry Lathan issued a statement on the release of the Muller Report.

“Thursday’s release of the Mueller Report confirms what we’ve known all along – no Russian collusion, no conspiracies and no White House interference,” Lathan said. “In fact, the report shows complete cooperation by the White House which declined to use its executive privilege.”

“Since President Trump was elected by our nation’s citizens, Democrats and the mainstream media have spent their time making endless attacks on the president, spreading irresponsible propaganda and trying to manhandle a false narrative that they wanted. It’s been a shameful and despicable display of their agenda – destroy this presidency at all cost,” Lathan continued. “No president, regardless of their party affiliation, should ever be put through these inexcusable actions. Shame on all who participated in this deplorable charade.”

“As with the summary report of Attorney General Barr, today’s redacted Mueller Report once again debunks and exposes the Big Lie Propaganda Tactics of the Fake News Media and Socialist Democrats” said Congressman Mo Brooks, R-Huntsville. “The Mueller Report states, ‘The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.’ Simply put, case closed. President Trump has been totally vindicated of “Big Lie” claims that he illegally colluded with Russia in the 2016 elections. The American public has been subjected to this fraud and false reporting for 2 ½ years. The American public deserves better.”

“President Trump and Attorney General Barr should be commended for their unprecedented transparency in releasing Special Counsel Mueller’s report today,” said Congressman Bradley Byrne, R-Montrose. “Finally, every last justification for Democrat grandstanding over imagined Russian collusion has been eliminated. The charade is up. There was no collusion. There was no obstruction. And there was no coverup. Robert Mueller had the full resources of the Department of Justice and was unable to find criminal activity. It is time to move on. I hope the Democrat majority in the House will move past this embarrassing chapter in our history, call off their phony investigations and stop the partisan political messaging so we can address issues that truly will benefit the American people.”

“Special Counsel Mueller’s report on his investigation into potential collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign has shown once again that Democrats have been wrong to push their claims that President Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election,” said Congressman Gary Palmer, R-Hoover. “The report revealed that the investigation found no evidence of collusion or obstruction of justice. The Democrats’ obsession with the investigation has only served to create divisiveness and unwarranted suspicion of the President and our country’s intelligence and legal systems. It’s time to accept that this sideshow is finished and to get back to the real work of governing that the American people need from us.”

Brooks directly challenging the reporting of the New York Times and The Washington Post, saying, “The Fake News Media’s coverage of the Russia Collusion delusion was endless, it even resulted in the staffs of the New York Times and The Washington Post receiving the Pulitzer Prize in 2018 for National Reporting into the so-called ‘Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and its connections to the Trump campaign.’”

“It’s a shame that the media will not be held accountable for their lies and fraudulent reporting,” Brooks continued. “After today’s release of the Mueller Report, the Washington Post and New York Times should be forced to return their 2018 Pulitzer Prize because Robert Mueller has now confirmed the non-existence of any Russian Collusion with the Trump Campaign or any other American. If any of the Fake News Media’s allegations were credible then Special Counsel Mueller would have been able to substantiate those claims because he had massive and almost endless resources. For emphasis, the Special Counsel ‘employed 19 lawyers who were assisted by a team of approximately 40 FBI agents, intelligence forensic accountants and other professional staff. The Special Counsel issued more than 2,800 subpoenas, executed nearly 500 search warrants, obtained more than 230 orders for communication records … and interviewed approximately 500 witnesses.’ After tens of millions of wasted American tax dollars, the finding is succinct. ‘[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.’”

Alabama Trump Victory Chairman Perry O Hooper Jr. said, “The Russian collusion narrative pushed by the Democrats and their lackies in the media for two years was a big fat lie and they knew it all along. This report proves it. Their insistence on pushing a narrative fabricated by the Clinton campaign was an unconscionable act bordering on treason. Their sole intent was to bring down an elected President at all costs. We must hold the Democrats accountable for perpetuating this hoax on the American people for two years. The Democrat leaders of this cabal House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler should face possible impeachment for their boldfaced lies. It’s time for the Democrats to shut up and get to work for the American people. Bottomline to quote Rudy Giuliani ‘This was a great victory’”

Hooper is a former state Representative and a member of the Alabama Republican Party Executive Committee.

“This Socialist Democrats and Fake News Media’s scam and fraud has undermined public faith in our republic,” Brooks said. “The perpetrators of this scam and fraud should be prosecuted and convicted to the full extent of the law. Further, they should be sued and forced to repay American taxpayers the tens of millions of tax dollars that were diverted from helping America citizens to investigating a crime that never occurred. Compared to Socialist Democrats and the Fake News Media, Jussie Smollett is a mere rookie and babe in the woods.”

“It’s time to stop focusing on these baseless accusations and get to work making America great again. President Trump’s policies are working and our historic economy shows it,” Lathan concluded.
