Case Closed: Mueller Report Proves Fake News Media and Socialist Democrats Lied!

April 18, 2019
Press Release

Washington, DC— On April 18, 2019, Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) made the following statement about the release of the Mueller Report. 

Congressman Brooks said, “As with the summary report of Attorney General Barr, today’s redacted Mueller Report once again debunks and exposes the Big Lie Propaganda Tactics of the Fake News Media and Socialist Democrats.  The Mueller Report states, ‘The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.’ Simply put, case closed.  President Trump has been totally vindicated of “Big Lie” claims that he illegally colluded with Russia in the 2016 elections.  The American public has been subjected to this fraud and false reporting for 2 ½ years. The American public deserves better.” 

Brooks directly challenging the reporting of the New York Times and The Washington Post, saying “The Fake News Media’s coverage of the Russia Collusion delusion was endless, it even resulted in the staffs of the New York Times and The Washington Post receiving the Pulitzer Prize in 2018 for National Reporting into the so-called ‘Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and its connections to the Trump campaign.’[1] It’s a shame that the media will not be held accountable for their lies and fraudulent reporting. After today’s release of the Mueller Report, the Washington Post and New York Times should be forced to return their 2018 Pulitzer Prize because Robert Mueller has now confirmed the non-existence of any Russian Collusion with the Trump Campaign or any other American.”[2]

Brooks continued, “If any of the Fake News Media’s allegations were credible then Special Counsel Mueller would have been able to substantiate those claims because he had massive and almost endless resources. For emphasis, the Special Counsel ‘employed 19 lawyers who were assisted by a team of approximately 40 FBI agents, intelligence forensic accountants, and other professional staff. The Special Counsel issued more than 2,800 subpoenas, executed nearly 500 search warrants, obtained more than 230 orders for communication records, . . . and interviewed approximately 500 witnesses.’[3] After tens of millions of wasted American tax dollars, the finding is succinct. ‘[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.’”

Congressman Brooks concluded by saying, “This Socialist Democrats and Fake News Media’s scam and fraud has undermined public faith in our republic. The perpetrators of this scam and fraud should be prosecuted and convicted to the full extent of the law.  Further, they should be sued and forced to repay American taxpayers the tens of millions of tax dollars that were diverted from helping America citizens to investigating a crime that never occurred.  Compared to Socialist Democrats and the Fake News Media, Jussie Smollett is a mere rookie and babe in the woods.”

So, they were either duped or corrupt? In any event, their prizes should be taken away by the Committee!”
