In most cases, a special counsel investigation is created because of apparent evidence of some kind of wrong doing or criminal act.
Even then, a special counsel investigation is not always used.
However, contained in the testimony of former FBI attorney Lisa Page, there was no evidence of any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia at the time Robert Mueller was appointed Special Counsel in May 2017.
This bombshell revelation is further proof that any collusion was on the part of those trying to railroad Trump out of the White House and that the appointment of Mueller took place under highly unusual and questionable circumstances.
(Fox News) – More than nine months after the FBI opened its highly classified counterintelligence investigation into alleged coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia, FBI lawyer Lisa Page said investigators still could not say whether there was collusion, according to a transcript of Page’s recent closed-door deposition reviewed by Fox News.
“I think this represents that even as far as May 2017, we still couldn’t answer the question,” Page said.
Page was responding to Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe of Texas, who wanted more information about a May 2017 text where Page, and her then colleague and lover FBI agent Peter Strzok discussed the merits of joining Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team.
Page sat for the transcribed interview before the House Judiciary and Oversight committees in mid-July as part of a joint congressional investigation into the Justice Department’s handling of the Russia and Clinton email probes…
After Page had testified before the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees, Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX), said that from all of the testimony they had gathered that after nearly a year, there was still no evidence of any collusion with Russia by Donald Trump or the Trump campaign.
So, one has to ask why was a special counsel investigation started in the first place if there was not a shred of evidence, only politically motivated and unsubstantiated allegations made by obviously biased enemies of President Trump?
Therefore, for the past 16 months, tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars have been used to pay for a political witch hunt based on ZERO evidence.
Meanwhile, the real guilty parties continue to walk around free.
