A conservative activist says the just-released James Mueller report means "total exoneration" for President Donald Trump, it's quite apparent that many on the left have no intention of letting up on their attacks on the president.
The left isn't happy following the conclusion of special counsel Mueller's report that there was no evidence that Trump's campaign "conspired or coordinated" with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election; and the report reached no conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice. Over the weekend, Attorney General William Barr released a four-page summary of the Mueller report to Congress.
Gary Bauer is president of American Values. "I'm very gratified that justice appears to have been served by this report by special counsel Robert Mueller. The president is vindicated," he tells OneNewsNow.
'Watergate on steroids'
"The Mueller report is in. There was no conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia. But there was a real conspiracy, and there has been a cover up of an attempted coup by the deep state.
"Multiple Obama officials, with the help of Hillary Clinton's campaign, attempted to delegitimize and potentially reverse the election of Donald Trump. We have yet to get to the bottom of who is responsible for this 'Watergate on steroids' and bring them to justice."

But Bauer says the left cannot and will not let this go. "They're like junkies," he says. "They cannot go through withdrawal from the idea that Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton fair and square without any help from Russia. So we should suspect that they will continue to attack. They're planning their next approach right now."
Bauer argues that this situation cannot be considered "settled" until those responsible for the attempted coup are held accountable.
"Until those people – [James] Comey, [Andrew] McCabe, multiple people at the Justice Department and FBI, as well as officials like [John] Brennan and [James] Clapper – until they are brought to justice, this situation should not be considered to be settled," he offers.
Fox News commentator Dan Bongino writes that those are some of the people who "started this mess … and they have plenty of questions to answer." Bauer agrees:
"There must be accountability for the individuals who abused the immense powers of the national security apparatus of this country to spy on their political opponents and to smear them as traitors," he tells OneNewsNow.
