1. Bongino Report The Top News Stories of the week
This week on the Bongino Report, we cover the top stories of the week including the release of the Mueller report, the latest on the Jussie Smollett case, and more.
The Mueller Report
On Thursday, the long-awaited Mueller report was finally released to the public. The report detailed the findings of the special counsel’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
While the report did not find that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government, it did lay out a number of instances where members of the campaign had contact with Russians and where the campaign benefited from Russian interference.
The report also detailed a number of instances where President Trump attempted to interfere with the investigation, including by trying to fire Mueller himself.
Despite the findings of the report, which were damning for the president, Trump has claimed victory, saying that the report exonerates him. However, many Democrats are calling for further investigation, and some are even calling for impeachment proceedings to begin.
The Jussie Smollett Case
This week, it was revealed that charges against actor Jussie Smollett for filing a false police report had been dropped.
Smollett had claimed that he was the victim of a racist and homophobic hate crime, but police later determined that Smollett had staged the attack. He was then charged with filing a false police report.
However, prosecutors dropped the charges this week, citing Smollett’s community service and his willingness to forfeit his bond as reasons for the decision.
The move has been met with criticism from some, who say that Smollett should have been forced to face the consequences of his actions. Others have praised the decision, saying that Smollett has already suffered enough and that the charges were too harsh.
The battle over the border wall
This week, the battle over funding for the president’s border wall heated up again.
Democrats in Congress have refused to provide funding for the wall, and the president has refused to sign any spending bill that does not include funding for the wall. This has led to an impasse, and the government has been partially shut down for over a month as

5. Highlights of the week’s news
This week was a big one for news, with plenty of stories that caught our attention. Here are five of the biggest and most important stories from the past week, according to the Bongino Report.
The first story is the release of the Mueller report. After two years of investigation, the report finally came out and it was a complete dud for the Democrats. The report found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia and completely exonerated the president. This is a huge victory for Trump and a devastating loss for the Democrats.
The second story is the continued collapse of the Trump-Russia collusion narrative. This week, we learned that the Steele dossier, which was the basis for the collusion narrative, was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC. This completely destroys the credibility of the dossier and the collusion narrative.
The third story is the continued success of the Trump economy. This week, we learned that the unemployment rate fell to 3.6%, the lowest level since 1969. This is great news for the country, and it’s a direct result of Trump’s economic policies.
The fourth story is the continued success of the Trump administration in combating radical Islamic terrorism. This week, we learned that the Islamic State has been completely defeated in Syria. This is a huge victory for Trump and the administration, and it makes the world a safer place.
The fifth story is about the continued problems with the Democratic Party. This week, we saw several high-profile Democrats, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar, get booed by their own constituents. This is indicative of the problems the Democratic Party is having, and it’s only going to get worse for them in the 2020 election.
