Susan Schmidt examines the highlights and lowlights of the new Special Counsel report on Trump-Russia
Honestly the biggest thing about this report is that we've known all of this for years. We had handwritten notes from the 'bigwig' meeting where they are discussing if they want to question Flynn or set him up. (They did the latter)
The years of breathless Russiagate coverage was ALWAYS a lie, and everybody knew it. The only question is -- is the Republic so far gone that they get away with it?
Anyone that’s been paying a minuscule bit of attention to this fiasco for the last 6 or so years isn’t surprised by this report - at all. And the mainstream media will bury it faster than a dead cat’s carcass. Nothing will change and no one will be held accountable. Good reporting as always, Matt.
I’ll never vote Democrat again. I’ll never trust the FBI again. It was probably naive to trust them in the first place. DC is truly a rotten shitty cesspool of evil, unethical monsters and Hillary Clinton is most certainly among the slimiest and evilest. Now watch as this information is dismissed by some, ignored by others, and Durhams character will be destroyed everywhere with claims that will have not a single iota of evidence to support them.
The point of the russiagate conspiracy theory was never to prove the conspiracy theory. Every one of the perpetrators knew from the outset that it was bullshit.
The point was to hamstring Trump’s foreign policy, and give the spooks a de facto veto over policies they didn't like.
In this, the russiagate conspiracy theory was a complete success.
People need to stop saying “everyone knew all this information for years.”
As incredible as it sounds most democrats (57% according to a poll) believe to this day that the Russians colluded with Trump and helped him win the election. And I guarantee you that a majority of the so-called mainstream media also believe that the Russian collusion story is true (stone!!! Manafort!!! Flynn!!!).
These people are sick and deranged. They will go to their graves thinking Trump stoke the ‘16 election. And they are too entrenched in their cult to think any differently.
They really DO think Trump cheated!
So no one is named as culpable, the FBI is institutionally protected with a few tsk-tsk's and Comey is actually allowed to skate away without having to answer a single question.
Well, aren't we glad we have all of that behind us!
So the FBI agents were willing to travel halfway around the world to chase down a vague conversation that turned out to be groundless but were apparently not willing to perform any review or analysis of the Hunter Biden laptop with its vast documentation of bribery , foreign cash, security risks associated with the lost computers (Hunter thought the Russians stole them) and of course the quantity of drugs Hunter was receiving. The FBI had been given the material and issued a receipt for it when received from the computer shop owner. Instead the FBI hid the laptop and failed to admit they had it when the copied files were released . We can be pretty sure the FBI agents studied the videos including Hunter gaining carnal knowledge with his toes while the young lady was snorting cocaine from a large pile provided by Hunter on the nightstand. And of course there were all the financial records which would have certainly raised questions given the sources.
Defund the FBI. It's a corrupt organization. Break it up into smaller pieces.
My proposal is to lower every DOJ & FBI executive position in DC one pay grade as a cost saving measure. If DOJ & FBI comply with all Congressional subpoenas during the time the budget is in force, the pay grades will be retroactively restored. Non compliance means everybody suffers personally. Holding executive pay hostage in defense of liberty is no vice.
Crimes were committed but Durham lacked leverage to get the FBI mobsters to rat out their boss. Congress has that leverage. The GOP needs to use this report as an outline for questioning all the key players. Watergate wasn't a scandal until Congress started asking questions.
Really, I think this is the worst attempt to defy the free choice of the voters since the South seceded.
i cant wait until 2030 when we find out the 2020 election was rigged.
The problem is, most people I know shut their ears to this. They simply won't read it. Or entertain it.
Kudos to you for continuing to lift the veil.
Well if the NY legislature can redefine the statute of limitations for Carroll to bring her case against Trump. Gop should introduce a bill that expands statute of limitations for cases that were assigned to a special prosecutor. 😳
“Damn, That’s Thin,” “I know,” “It sucks”: The Untold Story of the Trump-Russia hoax
Democrats only know one way to fail: Fail Up™️
After hounding a duly-elected President for...
6-years and counting, both Podesta, and Sullivan have high-paying govt jobs in the Biden admin.
Oh, I see. Our federal bureaucrats know what's best for us They went all in to elect the "right" candidate with lies, more lies and the fawning complicity of media hacks, but the stupid voters didn't do as they were told, and so the effort will continue to be orchestrated out of Washington, D.C., the biggest, smuggest and most overlarded bureaucracy in world history.
It's all over now, but we should not expect anything to change.
Personally, I don't take much comfort from this.
Committed Trump haters will never accept that this was all BS seeded by non other than the dragon lady herself. Facts don’t matter anymore.
America is a sick country run by criminals.
What a shit show.
