MUCH TO THE CHAGRIN OF DEMS, TRUMP DIDN'T DO ANYTHING WRONG And though I realize Democrats are still going to push the Obstruction angle they will eventually have to admit that in order to prove obstruction they would have to prove he had something to gain by hiding the crimes he didn't commit. The biggest loser in all this is THE MEDIA. Matt Taibbi wrote a really, really long and totally worth EVERY minute you spend reading it regaling of the level of media malfeasance we've seen over the last two years. It's ugly. Very, very ugly. One must wonder how the media ever tries to convince us they are anything but FAKE NEWS without a full front page mea culpa from every outlet. It will never come. From the opening of the article:
Nobody wants to hear this, but news that Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller is headed home without issuing new charges is a death-blow for the reputation of the American news media.
Why yes, that is correct. Read the whole thing here. It is stunning to see all the lies and fake stories and walk backs all in one place.
SO WHAT DOES THE MUELLER REPORT SAY? We don't know exactly, but we do know a lot from a summary released by Attorney General William Barr, who I believe is going to release as much of the report as he says is prudent. I say to hell with that, release the whole thing. Here is an article with the letter and it's overview, but the long and short of it is this: no collusion, and not enough proof of obstruction to file any charges. And again, without an underlying crime to justify obstruction, it's going to be really, really hard to make the case that Trump did something illegal after he didn't do anything illegal. But I fully expect Rep. Adam Schiff to try.
AUNTIE MAXINE AIN'T READY TO SING YET And she is not going to let go of the collusion narrative because it's all she has.
BUT IT'S FUN TO WATCH THE MELTDOWNS TODAY Especially on MSNBC with Morning Joe. Heh.
