Now that Donald Trump has 100% been exonerated of collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential election, Democrats are satisfied and ready to move on.

Nope. Not happening.

Dems are more hyped up than ever before to go after POTUS despite the Mueller report confirming no wrongdoing.

Freshman Democrat Rashida Tlaib (MI), known for draping herself in the Palestinian flag after winning her House seat last November, is set to introduce articles of impeachment.

Fellow frosh lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) is going to sign the resolution.

She tweeted:

Mueller’s report is clear in pointing to Congress’ responsibility in investigating obstruction of justice by the President.

It is our job as outlined in Article 1, Sec 2, Clause 5 of the US Constitution.

As such, I’ll be signing onto @RashidaTlaib’s impeachment resolution.

The Daily Wire‘s Ben Shapiro has some thoughts on Thursday’s events:

1. The Trump-Russia Collusion Claims Were Farcically Overblown. While there were certainly members of the Trump team who acted suspiciously – including Trump, who continued to lie to the American public that no work was occurring on the Trump Tower Moscow deal during the 2016 campaign – the claims that Trump was a nefarious Russian agent were comically exaggerated. The Mueller report itself makes this clear:

Although the investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, and that the Campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts, the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.

The report makes similar statements repeatedly. There was no there there.

2. The Original Suspicions Regarding The Trump Team May Not Have Been Unreasonable. One of the popular talking points these days concerning the Trump-Russia collusion investigation is that it was initiated in bad faith by an Obama intelligence apparatus concerned with taking down candidate Trump. That may be true. But there was plenty of smoke in the early days of the investigation: George Papadopoulos meeting with Joseph Mifsud, a suspected Russian asset, who allegedly bragged that he had access to Hillary Clinton’s emails; Roger Stone bringing Wikileaks promises to the attention of the Trump campaign; Trump’s dishonesty regarding the continuation of Trump Tower Moscow negotiations; the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting; Carter Page’s coordination with Russian fronts while working for the Trump campaign (Page, for example, emailed several campaign officials in July 2016 stating that he had “some incredible insights and outreach…from a few Russian legislators and senior members of the Presidential Administration here); Paul Manafort’s involvement in the campaign while simultaneously doing the dirty work of Ukrainian oligarchs.

3. The Steele Dossier Is Nowhere To Be Found. The Steele dossier – the intelligence mishmash funneled to Obama intelligence agencies via Fusion GPS – barely comes up in the Mueller report. Yet it was used repeatedly as the basis for a FISA warrant against Carter Page, and was presented directly to President Trump by former FBI director James Comey, then reported on broadly in the press. This raises serious questions as to how much the investigation morphed over time into an attempt to “get” the Trump campaign – just how eager were members of the FBI (say, Peter Strzok) to place extra weight on a dubious document of oppo research origin?
