Hugh Hewitt: After Mueller: The Tide Has Turned

After the latest testimony of former special counsel Robert Mueller, the tide has very clearly turned—and Trump now has a distinct advantage as we move into 2020.

No: President Trump has not yet been fully vindicated. Only his reelection will provide that.

But Trump has decisively repulsed the attempt to deny him the opportunity to win that vindication at the polls in November next year.

The president is now going on the offensive.

He’ll argue that the real scandal was the attempt to keep him from winning election and, once having won election, from governing. His opponents did so by shocking means far outside the norms of law and U.S. politics.

Trump will make this argument simply by force of repetition.

That the attack on Trump has decisively failed is not open to debate—except by people unfamiliar with “sunk costs.”

It was a terrible strategy from the start, that which the Democrats embrace, and it ended badly for everyone—except Donald Trump.

Hugh Hewitt: Who Is Lawyering Up Now?

During his news conference late last week, Attorney General William Barr communicated clearly and with confidence and authority the “bottom line” that neither President Trump, nor any member of his campaign or family colluded with Russia’s attack on our 2016 election. Barr did exactly what the chief law enforcement officer of the United States should do: explain the law and the decision in this matter.

No collusion.

No obstruction.

Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III made the first call. Barr made the second call. Now, the lightly redacted report has been presented to the Congress and to the people.

Many commentators will continue to ignore the “first rule of holes”: When in one, stop digging.

But we are not done. The attorney general soon will have the report of the inspector general reviewing the actions at the highest levels of the FBI and the intelligence community during the 2016 campaign and during the transition—and there are a host of issues that demand inquiry.

Who exactly is lawyering up now?

Michael Medved: Message to Congress: Legislate, Don’t Investigate

To the intense disappointment of hyper-partisan Democrats, the Mueller Report delivered anti-climactic results: no evidence of Russian collusion and no new charges against Trump and his team.

Despite his complaints on Twitter and elsewhere, the president allowed Mueller to complete his investigative work without significant interference, so it’s time to put to rest the charges and counter-charges.

Democrats, however, intend to use Congressional Committees to continue investigating Trump’s personal and business history, and some Republicans talk of retaliatory investigations of Obama’s FBI and Justice Department. This waste of taxpayer money is not their primary job as lawmakers: we hire legislators to legislate, not investigate.

Those who want to drive Trump from the White House have only one way to do it: vote him out.

The desperation of Democrats to continue their scandal-mongering only displays their growing fear of crushing defeat in 2020.

Lanhee Chen: After Mueller: A Look at the 2020 Election

President Trump faces a much clearer pathway to reelection in 2020 now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s found no evidence that the President or the Trump campaign colluded with Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election.

President Trump’s task ahead is to focus his reelection effort on the reasons why voters should give him a second term in office.  And while Democrats continue to obsess over Trump and his alleged misdeeds, it’s up to the President and his team to focus instead on the ways in which they’ve improved the livelihoods of the American people with tangible policy accomplishments.

The President spearheaded tax cuts that have helped many Americans keep more of their hard-earned money; his Administration has cut regulatory burdens and red tape to spur economic growth; and he has appointed judges to federal courts who respect the rule of law and the Constitution.

If President Trump can keep his rhetoric—and his focus—on touting these accomplishments, he’ll go a long way toward winning four more years in the Oval Office.
