As I've noted several times before (like here and here) this whole Russiagate thing was a fairly transparent hoax. Whether you like Trump or hate him (and I am not particularly fond of him), you should be very, very nervous about the intelligence agencies of our country being weaponized against the President on incredibly flimsy grounds.
We have now had an investigation in the Congress that cleared Trump of collusion and an investigation in the Senate that cleared Trump of collusion and now a Special Counsel (of which 13 of the 18 prosectors were registered Democrats) cleared Trump of collusion.
As Attorney General William Barr's letter said that he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein (who appointed the Special Counsel) found that "the evidence does not establish that the President was involved in an underlying crime related to Russian election interference."
Yeah, no shit. The most obvious hoax in American history turned out to be a hoax.
Now we'll see the Left beg for the whole report to be released to find some nugget of corruption. Or just pretend it never happened and focus on the Southern District of New York. But what rings true is that after over two years and millions of dollars; zero, count 'em, zero Americans have been charged with colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election.
This whole thing was a fraud!
This should go down with the "Iraq has WMD" as a complete indictment of the mainstream press. And unlike last time, when every neocon warmonger got promoted after their lies became apparent, there need to be consequences. People must be fired.
Hell, they should be banned from social media. Remember, these same networks are the one's that demanded Alex Jones be kicked off all social media for pushing conspiracy theories and fake news. We should hold them to their own standard!
But for now, just listen to these pathetic copes. Here's tinfoil hat-wearing Rachael Maddow on the edge of tears:
Here's Chris Matthews throwing a temper tantrum that Bob Mueller didn't have a sit down interview with Trump and instead just let him write answers. I mean they had a sit down interview with Hillary! (And let her say "I don't recall" on 21 of 25 questions and had already decided to exonerate her, but no matter).
Here's Bill Maher saying that "I don't need the Mueller report to know Trump is a traitor." OK Bill...
Remember, Trump's rhetoric is divisive.
And while the Left throws Mueller under the bus, please don't forget they use to talk about him like he was the Messiah, see this cringe for example:
If you're curious as to why the Left (and many #NeverTrumpers) can't just accept the obvious fact that there was no collusion. (And no, a 30-minute meeting about Russian adoptions doesn't count as collusion.) This article should help. As the author notes, "In a new study, David Gal and Derek Rucker from Northwestern University have found that when people’s confidence in their beliefs is shaken, they become stronger advocates for those beliefs." But give credit where credit is due. At least CNN's Jeffrey Toobin didn't fall into that trap. He summed it up pretty well,"it's over."
