Bret Baier Asks DNC Chair Tom Perez About The Mueller Report, And It Gets Awkward

No collusion. No obstruction. That’s what the big two year witch hunt got us. We wasted millions of dollars, because the left just couldn’t accept the fact that Trump beat Hillary.

If you thought this would end it, you thought wrong. The left is still in denial. They’re trying to make something of this whole “obstruction” thing, even though the Justice Department determined there was no such thing. Trump was defending himself from these BASELESS claims and total lawlessness. That’s obstruction?

Yes it is. At least, according to DNC Chair Tom Perez.

“So, the notion that there is no obstruction is just hogwash,” he told Fox News’ Bret Baier. “As you correctly point out, there are a list of really, really very serious things. He tried to fire Mueller, and the only reason he didn’t succeed is because people that he directed to do it wouldn’t carry out those orders. If you try to rob a bank and don’t succeed, that doesn’t mean you haven’t committed wrongdoing.”

I fail to see how firing Mueller would’ve been “wrongdoing,” but whatever.

“The investigation did not establish that the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities,” Baier pointed out.

“You have a lot of Democrats who spent a lot of the past 23 months talking about that the president was an agent for Russia. Is there something that the Democratic Party has to say, Mueller did not find it?” Baier asked.

Um… wait. Um….mom, is that you? – Tom Perez, basically.

“Well, again, I think there’s a distinction, Bret, between something that may rise to the level of a conspiracy that you can prove beyond a reasonable doubt,” Perez said.

Trump was either an agent for Russia, or he wasn’t. Mueller concluded he wasn’t, which makes the Democratic Party WRONG.

Baier pushed back, reminding Perez that the report specifically stated that the investigation DID NOT ESTABLISH that the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.

Perez’s response? Trump is still corrupt, because #reasons!

“I think the question you have to ask here, and it’s a different question from the question that Robert Mueller is asking, the question presented here is, is there a pattern of corrupt behavior by this president? Is there a pattern of behavior where the president is putting his own interests ahead of the American people’s interests?” Perez asked.

“When you get a call from a foreign actor, a foreign adversary, that says, ‘Hey, I got dirt on your opponent, and I want to help you win,’ what you should do first and foremost is say, ‘No,’ and then call the federal authorities. What we know from the investigation is that’s not what they did,” he continued. “They welcomed it.”

1.) I’m sure no other politician has welcomed dirt on their political opponent EVER in history //sarc and 2.) There’s still no collusion.

Bless their desperate little hearts.
