Mitt “Weathervane” Romney tweeted his reaction to the release of the Mueller Report. He wrote:
I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President.
I am also appalled that, among other things, fellow citizens working in a campaign for president welcomed help from Russia — including information that had been illegally obtained; that none of them acted to inform American law enforcement; and that the campaign chairman was actively promoting Russian interests in Ukraine.
Reading the report is a sobering revelation of how far we have strayed from the aspirations and principles of the founders.
Note to Mitt:
There are many reasons to be upset about the Mueller Report, but the actions of President Trump and the members of his campaign are not one of them.
Can’t you put your personal animosity for Trump aside for once and look at the facts?
Officials at the top levels of the Obama administration, including the FBI, the DOJ, the CIA, the DNI and the Obama White House, horrified by the prospect of a Trump presidency, conspired to undermine his candidacy. The Obama FBI infiltrated the campaign with spies. Officials from the FBI and the DOJ knowingly used an unverified dossier of false stories about Trump, which was commissioned and paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC, to obtain a FISA court warrant to spy on Carter Page. Although Page was merely a low level advisor, access to his communications provided a window into the rest of the campaign. They also leaked stories to the media when it suited their purposes.
When the unthinkable happened and Trump won the election, their “insurance policy” went into effect. The FBI counterintelligence investigation which began before the election ultimately turned into a special counsel investigation. There was no evidence of a crime at the inception of either probe. Both were initiated for one political purpose, to delegitimize Trump’s presidency.
The special counsel investigation has crippled Trump’s presidency and it has damaged our country. It has also ruined the lives of several Trump associates, including General Michael Flynn, who served this country well for over 30 years.
This criminal conspiracy is unprecedented and it will be remembered as the biggest political scandal in U.S. history.
And Donald Trump and his campaign staff were its victims.
Does any of that sicken you Mitt?
PS: Calling law enforcement would have been a really bad idea in this case Mitt.
