“While this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him,” AG Barr quoted Robert Mueller as writing.
Yet, White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway told reporters Monday morning that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) should resign over his collusion comments because she says he “lied.”
Here’s Kellyanne Conway making the argument that telling a lie should be followed by resignation.
Conway said Schiff “let a lie fly for two years. Literally going out, not under oath and saying day after day, moment after moment, full of vim and vigor snark and bark that there’s a mountain of evidence of collusion against the President that may actually be bigger than Watergate.”
That’s right. The counselor to the biggest liar occupying the Oval Office in the history of nation thinks telling a lie should require resignation.
As of March 17 2019, Trump averaged 15 false claims a day in 2018. In 787 days, President Trump has made 9,179 false or misleading claims. In 2019, Trump is averaging 22 false claims A DAY.
Rep. Schiff has not actually lied. It is Kellyanne Conway and the Trump protectors who are lying. They are lying saying Trump was exonerated, when he was specifically NOT exonerated. They are lying saying there was no obstruction, when we all witnessed the obstruction.
What Conway is doing here is more of the unprecedented “investigate the investigators” and “punish the investigators” modus operandi of Trump. This is very dangerous territory, and it is reason enough to prove that Trump isn’t fit to be president.
Conway is claiming Trump is persecuted. Somehow they want you to believe that yeah, sure, all of the presidents top men were found guilty of a crime, and many of them were talking to Russia during the campaign and lied about this to Congress. But that smoke means nothing. Oh, and yeah, Russia helped Trump win, but that smoke means nothing.
Oh, and yeah, Trump is the healthiest president ever and had the biggest inauguration and won by the biggest numbers ever.
The Trump lies all have this clownish simplicity because they know that works. Nuance gets you nowhere. Facts are for suckers. Just keep lying and pointing the finger at those who call you out. Intimidate and harass them into silence. You know, like truly exonerated people do.
