Now A Special Prosecutor, So What Exactly Do We Know That Trump And His Campaign Have Been Tied To?

May 17, 2017

With all the mixed reporting from all the MSM, it’s becoming very hard to sift through what is fact or not. Even considering Congress and the Senate their biases are showing. They are ready to impeach President Trump before a complete investigation has been accomplished.

There is one main character that is being drawn into the sea of muck and that is our President. This whole investigation does not cover Trump as much as it does his campaign staff that surrounded him. But, when you listen to the Democratic/leftists it’s all about Trump. No, Trump did not ask Russia to find Hillary Clinton’s emails, it was a joke! He probably should not of said it, but that’s our President, he meant nothing by it, because he said “it’s probably not Russia,” when making this statement. The [VIDEO] can be watched here about the statement he made during a campaign.

These statements he made then implicates him in the investigation. The statement, “write it and regret it” can be said for “say it and regret it.” It’s true, you have to be careful with what you say and write, it can be held against you. Then again, they have to prove, without a reasonable doubt that he had some nefarious actions with Russia.

WHY A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR SO EARLY IN THE INVESTIGATION? 

The “Special Prosecutor, former FBI Director, Robert S Mueller, III, has been appointed to investigate the possible collusion between campaign staff and Russia in the meddling of the 2016 election. There will be an investigation to find out if crimes were commited during the election.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein statement:

“My decision is not a finding that crimes have been committed or that prosecution is warranted,” Deputy Atty. Gen. Rod Rosenstein said in announcing the appointment. “I have made no such determination.”

So, we know that so far they are only investigating, they may not find any probable cause to move forward with a trial. 

He also said that a special prosecutor was needed so that confidence within the American people would be maintained.

“The public interest requires me to place this investigation under the authority of a person who exercises a degree of independence from the normal chain of command.”

President Trump on many occasions has said that there was no collusion going on between his campaign and any foreign entity.

“As I have stated many times, a thorough investigation will confirm what we already know – there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity.”

Many people feel that Trump should not have fired James Comey because they assume he was fired to stop the Russian investigation. But let me clear this up right now, he had stated that he fired Comey because of the way he handled the Hillary Clinton email case. 

Most of us were appalled at the determination, possible coverup not to proceed with a criminal trial for Hillary. Actually, we all felt deep down she would be let go, you could see this early on in the investigation when Hillary kept saying she never emailed any classified material, when evidence was pointing to the fact she did. Did she know she would be cleared, and was trying to erase the whole fiasco from her supporters minds by making that false statement? Comey seemed to be protecting her from indictment during his most unusual press briefing. May I remind everyone he said no judge would even try this case, are you kidding me? Does he have the right to make that judgement? On with the show….

Comey did confirm that a Russian investigation was proceeding/ongoing. We all remember the infamous “Russian Dossier,” that John McCain passed onto then FBI Director James Comey. Yeah, good old John McCain! This was suppose to show some secret negotiations going on between Russia and Trump. To date the verification of these documents has not been proved. This is the only possible thing that could, I say could, link Trump to the investigation that I know of. Keep in mind, we don’t know if this Russian Dossier is verifiable. 

The Trump team has consistently denied any contacts with the Russian government. I personally think our government believes that Trump could be blackmailed through his business, financial dealings in Moscow. But, is this reason enough to impeach him? No, he hasn’t done anything wrong. He is a strong leader with only one thing on his agenda, Making America Great Again.


Then we have the Russian Banks that Trump has supposed connections with, specifically they are saying he had a server in Trump Towers connected to SVB Bank and Alfa Bank.

Per heatst.com, Bradley P Moss, a National Security Lawyer had told Heatst.com that he could see where a candidate could become “agents of influence,” vulnerable if you will. But, this still is just speculation, nothing else.

The following is what Moss told Heatst.com:


Now we have a “Memo,” where Trump supposedly asked Comey to let the Flynn investigation go. This, I don’t believe is evidence enough to convict/indict. Even if it does go to trial, the nature of the supposed memo does not demand Comey to stop the Flynn investigation.

As of 2:45p.m., 5/17/2017, according to yahoo.com, “The Republican chairman of a House oversight committee says he will ask former FBI Director James Comey to testify at a hearing next week that will look into whether President Donald Trump pressured Comey to shut down an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.”
As reported by yahoo.com, At 2:30 p.m., 5/17/2017, “Republicans and Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee say they expect the panel to ask ousted FBI Director James Comey to testify to Congress.”

We will see what Comey says and if he has the Memo in order to make a determination on these accusations. If he kept memos on Trump, I am sure he kept them on the Hillary Clinton email investigation also. People are discussing Comey’s note taking as a “culture of the FBI.” So, he must have very interesting notes on Hillary? If he doesn’t have memos on Hillary, something very funny is going on here!

POSSIBLE PEOPLE UNDER FBI INVESTIGATION

In the following paragraph I am only relaying what mainstream media (MSM) has previously detailed in their articles. This does not mean they are guilty of collusion with Russia, nor does it mean they are definitely under investigation. We don’t know who is under investigation since FBI has not told us. 

We know that Flynn stepped down for possible connections with Russia, when he supposedly talked with the Russian Ambassador, Sergei Kislyak before the Presidential transition.

Attorney General Sessions who was Trumps Policy Advisor during the campaign, may have possibly had meetings with the Russian Ambassador, supposably not disclosing this information prior to his confirmation hearings.

Carter Page who was an earlier Campaign Advisor for Donald Trump was scrutinized by the FBI for possible communications with Russian officials. He was said to of travelled to Moscow in December, 2016.

Paul Manafort was said to of written Billionaire Oleg Deripaska in 2005, proposing to do work for Deripaska that would benefit the Putin government.

Michael Cohen, who is Trump’s lawyer, is being accused of speaking with a Ukrainian lawmaker, Andrii Artemenko, who told CNN about some type of pro-Russian peace plan which he wanted Cohen to deliver to the Trump Administration. Cohen’s in-laws are Ukrainian, but I don’t see what difference that could make.

According to Fox News, Jared Kushner talked supposedly with the Russian Ambassador before the inauguration in order to build relationships, ultimately paving a way to a smoother transition into the White House. He could be considered the person of interest that investigators are looking into, who is closest to the President.

Just because they talk to foreign leaders, it does not make them an instant traitor. In early May, the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met with President Trump here in the USA and spoke about a classified subject concerning terrorism. This became a big deal, stretched way out of proportion, as many Democrats thought he should not of talked about it. I am sure these politicians are aware that, the President has the broad authority to declassify documents.

Terrorism is a worldwide problem and Russia is a part of trying to help solve this ongoing problem. I don’t see anything wrong with what he does in talks, he is simply trying to further peace around the world by ending terrorism.

Maybe instead of freaking out all the time the Democrats as well as the non-Trumper’s and MSM could give him a chance to lead, they might be surprised, if only they could work with him and stop micromanaging his every move. Hillary Clinton and her minions need to go back into the woods, stay there!

So, this is all we know, we will have to trust the special prosecutor in getting to the bottom of all the confusion. They are all not guilty, until and if, an indictment comes about which would bring forth an ensuing trial, therefore deciding the case.

As far as an impeachment of the President is concerned, ain’t going to happen, the left can keep dreaming!
