America's political punditry has been buzzing since Thursday’s redacted release of the much-anticipated Russia report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller—and the variance between the report’s findings and hollow claims of no “collusion” by Attorney General William Barr and President Donald Trump.

Far from exonerating Trump, the report is stuffed with evidence that the Trump White House is nothing more than a disgraceful den of loathsome thieves and liars. It’s now clear the only reason Trump wasn’t indicted on obstruction of justice and other crimes is because he is the sitting president.

Instead of “draining the swamp,” Trump has filled it with filth. He has tarnished the American Presidency worse than anything this generation has seen--including Watergate.

How can Republicans stay silent about Trump's alleged attempts to use Russian propaganda to win presidency?

Over the last few days, American journalism has been reading through the trove of documents in Muller’s Report. It documents damning evidence of the Trump’s campaign resolve to win at any cost. It makes clear these rascals were willing to do business with Russia to get “dirt” if it helped them seize the presidency.

Trump, and his cronies, can cry all they want about being “exonerated.” The Muller Report does no such thing. In fact, it not only fingers Trump as an unprincipled scoundrel, but it shows he was surrounded by like-minded scalawags.

The Mueller Report is teeming with impeachable offenses.

The only reason Donald Trump won’t be impeached is because two-thirds of the partisan American Senate won’t vote to convict this conman. There is little political integrity on Capitol Hill, mostly partisan posturing. Where are the voices of the holier-than-thou Republicans? What happened to all the grandstanding talk about "country before party?"

Since Congress won’t hold Trump accountable, it is up to American journalism to fully unmask his criminality. This is mainstream journalism’s chance to correct their mistakes on Trump.

It is the American press that is largely responsible for Trump being elected president—more so, than any influence Russians may have had in meddling in America’s elections. For decades, mainstream media assisted Trump in building a false facade image of himself of being anything more than a rich man’s spoiled son. To make matters worse, during the campaign, saturated television coverage of Trump—done to pump ratings—legitimized him in the minds of many Americans.

The American media now has conclusive evidence to convict Trump in the court of public opinion. Americans must now see the evidence.

Ever since the Russia investigation started, much has been made by Team Trump that there was “no collusion.” Of course, Muller was investigating criminal conspiracy and obstruction, not collusion. However, Mueller’s Report does show multiple Trump surrogates, at the very least, attempting to collude with Russians, to get information, to win the presidency.

Here are a few nuggets, from Volume 1 of the Mueller Report detailing this.

On page 62, it says “According to [Rick] Gates, (deputy campaign chairman under Paul Manafort) by the late summer of 2016, the Trump Campaign was planning a press strategy, a communications campaign, and messaging based on the possible release of Clinton e-mails by Wikileaks…while Trump and Gates were driving to LaGuardia Airport.” Didn’t Trump’s team know, and care, that these were e-mails allegedly hacked by Russia, a stated hostile adversary of America?

Right after Wikileaks founder Julian Assange was arrested, in England, Trump said “I know nothing about Wikileaks.” Needless to say, Trump is lying since he made numerous references to Wikileaks. He said things like “This WikiLeaks stuff is unbelievable,” and “Boy, I love reading those WikiLeaks,” and “Oh, we love WikiLeaks. Boy, they have really – WikiLeaks! They have revealed a lot.”

Another interesting instance, in Muller’s Report, talks about an interaction between George Papadopoulos, a former member of Trump’s foreign policy advisory panel, and Joseph Mifsud. Mifsud is described as “a London-based professor who had connections to Russia,” who apparently attempting to link Papadopoulos with influential Russians.

On page 97, it states “Mifsud told Papadopoulos that he had met with high-level Russian government officials during his recent trip to Moscow. Mifsud also said that, on the trip, he learned that the Russians had obtained ‘dirt’ on candidate Hillary Clinton. As Papadopoulos later stated to the FBI, Mifsud said that the ‘dirt’ was in the form of ‘emails of Clinton,’ and that they ‘have thousands of emails.’ On May 6, 2016, 10 days after that meeting with Mifsud, Papadopoulos suggested to a representative of a foreign government [Israel?] that the Trump Campaign had received indications from the Russian government that it could assist the Campaign through the anonymous release of information that would be damaging to Hillary Clinton.”

Here we see a Trump lackey in the process of cooperating with Russia, a foreign power deemed hostile to American interests, to help Trump win the presidential election—while communicating these events with another foreign country. Is it any wonder then why Trump, on July 27, said “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing?”

The Report highlights, on page 193, that “on June 3, 2016, Robert Goldstone [English publicist] emailed Donald Trump Jr., to pass along from Emin and Aras Agalarov an ‘offer’ from Russia's ‘Crown prosecutor’ to ‘the Trump campaign’ of ‘official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to [Trump Jr.' s] father.’ The email described this as ‘very high level and sensitive information’ that is ‘part of Russia and its government's support to Mr. Trump-helped along by Aras and Emin.’ Trump Jr. responded: ‘if it's what you say I love it especially later in the summer."

Here we see Donald Trump Jr. ecstatic about the help he is told they would be receiving from Russian officials. “Especially later in the summer,” as it gets close to the election? Is this not evidence of Don Jr. trying to collude?

Aras Agalarov is a Russian billionaire who, allegedly along with his singer-musician son, Emin, created an American shell company, in Delaware, a month before the now infamous June 2016 Trump Tower meeting. Agalarov, international known as the founder for the Crocus Group, was involved with Trump in “organizing” the 2013 Miss Universe pageant, in Russia.

Mueller’s Report says, "Following the pageant the Trump Organization and Mr. Agalarov' s company, Crocus Group, began preliminarily discussion [sic] potential real estate projects in Moscow." We’re also told “Trump Jr. and Emin Agalarov had follow-up conversations and, within days, scheduled a meeting with Russian representatives that was attended by Trump Jr., Manafort, and Kushner. The communications setting up the meeting and the attendance by high-level Campaign representatives support an inference that the Campaign anticipated receiving derogatory documents and information from official Russian sources that could assist candidate Trump's electoral prospects.”

The pee-pee, "golden showers" tapes, come in here too.

We’re told former Trump lawyer, Michael Cohen, “received a text from Russian businessman Giorgi Rtskhiladze that said, ‘Stopped flow of tapes from Russia but not sure if there ' s anything else. Just so you know .... ‘tapes’ referred to compromising tapes of Trump rumored to be held by persons associated with the Russian real estate conglomerate Crocus Group.”

This tells us Agalarov, or his people, possibly set-up Trump to blackmail and extort him when he became president. Indeed, that would also explain Trump’s peacemaking stance with Russia—a stark departure from the bloody warmongering tone he usually spews against other nations.

There is much to digest in Mueller’s Report about this unprincipled presidency. The scope of criminality, and criminal intent, here is mind-boggling. Trump, and his cronies, are the worse kind of Americans possible. We see people here willing to sellout America for selfish individual interests.

That last point must be made clear to fair-minded honest Americans by American journalism.
