The president and his cronies have been gleefully been conducting victory laps over the past few days, smugly rubbing it in the faces of the hated libs that Special Counsel Mueller’s report failed to bring any indictments against the President and his family or found any evidence of the collusion that so many Americans suspected him of committing.
But it’s becoming clear that the president and his rabid supporters are counting their chickens before the farmer has revealed his full report on the eggs, as FOX News’ own Judge Napolitano made clear this afternoon in a surprising segment on the president’s favorite network.
Napolitano argued that “in that report will be evidence of the existence of a conspiracy,” just “not enough evidence to prove the existence beyond a reasonable doubt” while appearing on Neil Cavuto’s Coast to Coast show on FOX Business.
Napolitano and Cavuto were discussing House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) eye-opening outburst this afternoon, in which he blew up at his Republican colleagues calling for his resignation and publicly listed all the unanswered questions we have about the President and his family’s highly suspicious actions during and after the 2016 election.
In conclusion, Schiff said that “I think it’s immoral, I think it’s unethical, I think it’s unpatriotic and, yes, I think it’s corrupt – and evidence of collusion. Now, I have always said that the question of whether this amounts to proof of conspiracy was another matter. Whether the special counsel could prove beyond a reasonable doubt the proof of that crime would be up to the special counsel, and I would accept his decision, and I do. He’s a good and honorable man, and he is a good prosecutor.”
Napolitano stunned his host and his audience when he said that he believes Schiff was right — and that Trump will not be exonerated of wrongdoing after all is said and done.
“I think that Congressman Schiff is correct, in that report will be evidence of the existence of a conspiracy, not enough evidence to prove the existence beyond a reasonable doubt,…In that report will be evidence of obstruction of justice, interfering with an FBI investigation for a personal gain but not enough evidence to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt.”
The “no collusion!” narrative being eagerly boosted by triumphant Trump fans is beginning to unravel as the exact words used by Attorney General Barr are parsed and the subtext hidden between the lines emerges — and it’s clear that this is not over until we see the entire report.
And it’s very bad news for the President if his own cheerleading network is admitting that it’s likely to contain some very damning information.
