Lisa Page bombshell testimony: Collusion between Trump and Russia unproven...

Lisa Page bombshell testimony: Collusion between Trump and Russia unproven by time of Mueller's special counsel appointment.

Former FBI attorney Lisa Page, in a bombshell revelation, says the agency could not prove collusion between Russia and Donald Trump's presidential campaign before Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed.

Page told a closed-door joint session of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees in mid-July that investigators could not make the charge, according to a transcript of her 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.

In May 2017, Mueller was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as special counsel overseeing an ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Trump and his Republican allies are likely to use this revelation to boost their argument the president is a victim of a witch hunt and the investigation has been tainted by politics.

But her testimony refers to a point in the investigation from over a year ago and it's unclear where the probe stands now.

Mueller has been tight-fisted with his look into Russia election tampering and has given no interviews.

But, since his appointment, his team has secured cooperation and plea deals from Trump players former National Security adviser Michael Flynn, former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Manafort deputy Richard Gates and former campaign adviser George Papadopoulos.

The president has long and repeatedly argued there is no collusion and he is a victim of a witch hunt.

He made the same case in a tweet Sunday morning.

Hopefully this week will be a good one with more details of the corrupt Obama Administration coming out.

While I’m totally opposed to the Mueller witch-hunt (it’s a fishing expedition, and nothing else), I can’t see why this is a bombshell - if collusion was “proven” or even “provable” before Mueller, there’d be no need for an investigation, just prosecution. So of course collusion was unproven at that point (and likely will remain so forever).

This doesn’t really change anything because the careerist GOPe want to hamstring POTUS just as much as Democrats do.

They were trying to prove it back then. And all based on the flimsy unverified Steele Dossier.

And now to hear that there was no hearing upon which the first FISA was approved.

Bombshell

This is a bombshell

And if you don't know about them you want to stay strictly away from Afghan hounds. Any contact is fraught with danger.

While arguably a 10 on the hot scale, they are about 25 on the crazy scale.

"...says the agency could not prove collusion between Russia and Donald Trump's presidential campaign before Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed."

What she's really saying is that there was not even a scintilla of evidence suggesting Trump Russian collusion and that this entire sordid affair is for a fact a criminal political witch hunt. Mueller and co-conspirators in this coup attempt, including all the major agency players, should be jailed.

Collusion? There isn’t even proof of Russians “hacking” the election in the first place let alone collusion

You don’t need a massive investigation into something that’s PROVEN. Maybe she meant there was no EVIDENCE of Russian collusion. That would indeed be a bombshell.

There is plenty of evidence of Russian collusion (with Democrats) but almost certainly Rosenweasal told Mueller not to investigate it in his Special Council scope memo.

James O’Keefe says Project Veritas is coming out with a “bombshell” this week regarding the Deep State.

We’ll see. Sometimes they hit it out of the park. Sometimes it’s a dud:

Collusion has been right in front of us the whole time - why aren’t they investigating the Clinton Foundation? Or are they and no one is talking about it.
