McEnany: Mueller Should Be Asked why he Never Investigated Hillary’s Collusion with Russia

In a new op-ed for FoxNews, Trump campaign spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany argues that Mueller has shown bias against President Trump and for Hillary Clinton.

When Robert Mueller testifies Wednesday about what we now know are false allegations of Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential campaign, House members should ask him why he failed to investigate the real collusion that took place between Russia and the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Democrats who now hold the majority in the House have called former Special Counsel Mueller to testify Wednesday before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees as part of their continuing obsession with investigating President Trump, instead of legislating on behalf of the American people.

For nearly three years, Democrats have lied by peddling their baseless conspiracy theories that Trump’s presidential campaign colluded with Russia to help Trump win the election.

Perhaps the seemingly never-ending quest by Democrats to delegitimize the will of the American people and the election of Trump as president was really designed to distract from what we now know to be true: In 2016, the only presidential campaign that colluded with foreign nationals, Russia included, was the Clinton campaign.

In his 448-page report, Mueller exposes Democrats and exonerates President Trump, saying “the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”

The same cannot be said of Hillary Clinton.

On the contrary, Marc Elias – an attorney for Clinton and the Democratic National Committee – retained Fusion GPS “in April 2016 on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC,” the Washington Post reported.

Fusion GPS then hired Christopher Steele, a former British spy, to dig up dirt on candidate Trump.  Steele did not just dig up any “dirt,” though, he dug up Russian dirt “based on conversations with Russian sources,” the Washington Post reported.

Steele packaged the accusations he dug up into a defamatory dossier full of Russian lies about Trump that were ultimately used to justify an investigation based on no evidence whatsoever.

The facts are clear. State Department notes confirm that both a former Russian intelligence chief and a top adviser to Russian President Vladimir Putin were key sources, among others, for Steele’s defamatory dossier.

The dossier, full of Russian disinformation, amazingly made its way into a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court application for a warrant to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

But in an appalling omission, the application to the court made no mention of the Hillary Clinton-funded origins of the dossier or its Russia sources.

As The Hill’s John Solomon reported, the FBI falsely vouched to the FISA Court that the dossier had been “corroborated” and that the FBI was “unaware of any derogatory information pertaining” to Steele.

In reality, the information was far from corroborated, and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec had actually warned the FBI just 10 days earlier that the defamatory dossier was inaccurate.
