On his nationally syndicated radio show Friday, Mark Levin challenged the notion of President Donald Trump colluding with the Russians to win the 2016 election. His theory rests on the guilty plea that former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn made with FBI special counsel Robert Mueller.
“There is no collusion with the Russians. No collusion today, no collusion yesterday, no collusion the day before yesterday,” Levin said. “Mr. Mueller hasn’t brought a single charge related to collusion with the Russians … before the election, he hasn’t brought a single charge related to collusion with the Russians to influence the election.”
He pointed to the fact that former FBI Director James Comey doubted Flynn was intentionally lying and declined to press charges against him.
Levin continued, “We have charges in this investigation with Mr. Manafort and Gates related to failure to file as federal agents, charges that are almost never brought. We have charges on tax violations without bringing any tax evasion charges.”
He pointed out that so far the FBI special counsel investigation has resulted in false statement pleas with Trump campaign foreign policy advisor George Papadopolous and now with Mike Flynn.
Levin pointed out, “Contact with foreign governments by an incoming administration. It is not illegal, it is not criminal, in any sense. Those conversations, to the extent that they took place, Mr. Mueller has access to, as a result of the constant, as we’ve learned over the past many months due to leaks, the constant espionage that goes on in terms of the ambassador to Russia and others.”
He added, “So they know what was discussed. And yet there is no charge of collusion, they know it was discussed, but there is no collusion charge, no substantive, underlying criminal charge.”
Levin emphasized, “Despite all the static, all the jumping up and down … what Mr. Mueller has demonstrated today, with the information that he has put out in open court, and leaked out through his surrogates, what Mr. Mueller has demonstrated today is he has no collusion case against anyone.”
