The liberal “resistance” to Donald Trump has taken many shapes, but none as nefarious and persistent as the investigation into the President’s imaginary Russian collusion.
According to the democrats, Donald Trump is simply a Russian operative who has been corrupted by the Kremlin, elected President by Russian interference in the U.S. election, and will soon sell out the U.S. people to appease Vladimir Putin. Sure, it’s a far fetched bit of chicanery, but we wouldn’t expect anything less from our leftist lunatic counterparts.
While no evidence has surface yet to indicate that this ridiculous conspiracy theory is true, the left has managed to appoint Special Counsel Robert Mueller to investigate Trump’s ties to Russia. Unfortunately, the mainstream media has run with this investigation as some sort ironclad proof of collusion, while there possible, simple explanations for Trump associates having contacts in Russia; primarily the idea that these successful businessmen would certainly wish to diversify their investments and wealth within the confines of the world’s largest nation. The abundant natural resources and loosened regulatory environment makes for one heck of a manufacturing sector.
Once again the left is going berserk this morning, similar to sharks in the midst of a feeding frenzy, as former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s home was raided in an overly dramatic early morning FBI stunt.
“FBI agents raided the Alexandria home of President Trump’s former campaign chairman late last month, using a search warrant to seize documents and other materials, according to people familiar with the special counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
“Federal agents appeared at Paul Manafort’s home without advance warning in the predawn hours of July 26, the day after he met voluntarily with the staff for the Senate Intelligence Committee.
“The search warrant was wide-ranging and FBI agents working with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III departed the home with various records. Jason Maloni, a spokesman for Manafort, confirmed that agents executed a warrant at one of the political consultant’s homes and that Manafort cooperated with the search.
“Manafort has been voluntarily producing documents to congressional committees investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election. The search warrant indicates investigators may have argued to a federal judge they had reason to believe Manafort could not be trusted to turn over all records in response to a grand jury subpoena.
“It could also have been intended to send a message to President Trump’s former campaign chairman that he should not expect gentle treatment or legal courtesies from Mueller’s team.”
Those in close proximity to the case have lambasted the senselessness of the dramatic move, citing Manafort’s overwhelming willingness to cooperate with the investigation.
This FBI raid was nothing more than an attempt to give the impression that Manafort was being an uncooperative, and implied guilty, accessory to whatever crime the left is now accusing the President of. Again, the democratic control over the mainstream media has come in handy, allowing this action against a former Trump staffer to inflate itself to the status of news.
In reality, this is just more of the same nonsense from the left and their conspiratorial investigation into Manafort, Trump, and whomever else they decide to vilify this week.
