  1. I used to compare the folks who believed so much in the ‘Trump colluded with Russia’ to those who believed ‘Obama is a Kenyan’, but at least there wasn’t 2+ years of wasted money and time spent on trying to oust Obama (at least through the DOJ).

    It’s comical watching CNN (yes, it is always left on at the gym) try to still spin this investigation somehow to try to justify impeaching Trump.

    1. When you’ve drawn three cards and still have a busted flush all you can do is bluff and hope it works.

    2. The scope and scale of the birthers and those who believe in the Russian Illusion are not an equivalent comparison though.

  2. Mueller reportedly responded that media coverage of the obstruction investigation is misguided and has created public misunderstandings

    This was an important passage of the letter. Mueller claimed that releasing the summaries for each section would prevent the inaccuracies being spread in the media. Hindsight shows this not to be the case.

    I think it is clear that Mueller, and his team, intended for the incremental release of information to dominate successive news cycles with the exact same inaccuracies that we have seen in the media play out almost as if it were a planned PR op. So many media outlets are using the same language to characterize the report and it is coming from the same reporters that were working with the Obama administration and Fusion GPS that there is good reason to believe this is a journolist style of propaganda operation.

    As evidence, we can read the report. It wasn’t written to prevent the Democrats and their media outlets from acting the way they are but to justify and enable it. The DNC media is running with it.

    Barr sidestepped their trap but even in avoiding the trap, Mueller and the Democrats created a next best outcome for themselves that was still bad for Trump and allows the Russian Illusion to continue.

      If true, it’ll be interesting to see if the collusion is revealed as it was with leaks from Journolist. Could be quite the hacking target for those dastardly Ruskies. Bonus points of it triggers an investigation of no doubt illegal exposure of illegal or corrupt acts of the Mueller investigation.

      Having said that, journalists are notorious for their lack of creativity. I’ve seen them collectively using the same stilted language before (my favorite example being the “ultra-loyal Republican Guard” of early 2003 before the Iraqi invasion). Well, as usual, we’ll just have to see if anything comes of it.

  3. ” finally bringing Hillary Clinton to justice.”

    Your lips to God’s ears, but I doubt it’ll ever happen.
