If he had something on Trump, we would have been watching impeachment hearings by now.

there is still no real evidence of, well, much of anything significant about Russiagate. One thing that is clear is that the investigation seems to be ending. Mueller’s office has reportedly even told various defense lawyers that it is “tying up loose ends.“

This week’s Key to Everything is Michael Cohen, the guy who lied out of self-interest for Trump until last week when we learned he is also willing to lie, er, testify against Trump out of self-interest. If you take his most recent statements at face value, the sum is the failed negotiations to build a Trump hotel in Moscow, which went on a few months longer than was originally stated, and that we all knew about already.

The media branch of “the Resistance” wet its pantsuits last Friday when Robert Mueller released sentencing memos on Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen, the human keys to the dungeon they would like to toss Mr. Trump into. Over in the House of Representatives, incoming Judiciary Committee chair Jerrold Nadler spooged himself into a rapture as visions of impeachment lap-danced in his head. Their victory orgasms may prove premature.

The memos themselves were not all they were cracked up to be. Despite Mr. Mueller turning the screws of federal prosecution on them for months on end, neither Manafort or Cohen has composed the narrative the Special Counsel wants, so the memos were, in effect, an attempt to run some high voltage through the screws, to goose out a last-minute change-of-heart in the two patsies. Manafort has been stuffed into solitary confinement and Cohen threatened with forty years of jail time, Their stoicism so far suggests this is not the triumphal climax that the spinners of RussiaGate seek.

If I understand your posts, you suggest "Once a coup d'etat,

<there is still no real evidence of, well, much of anything significant about Russiagate.>


The idea was never really about proving that the Russians colluded with Trump to defeat Hillary, It was all about prolonging things to make it more difficult for Trump to get all the things done that he wanted to do and was elected to do.

It could not happen without the media fully buying in to the idea. If you can stomach watching a mixture of the evening news programs, almost every story is framed in a way to diminish the Trump administration. Even when they broadcast some parts of a story that are true, they deliberately leave out parts that run counter to the storyline.

One simple case in point. I saw a number of prominent stories where soybean farmers in the Midwest expressed their concern with Trump's China trade policy as their livelihood depends on selling that product to China, their number one volume customer. That was a valid concern on their part. Yet the stories were not counterbalanced by defining China's predatory behavior over the last several decades. Unreported is that as a direct result of the December 1st meeting, China has begun placing new large orders for soybeans. All we hear on the subject is crickets and cries of "Russia, Russia, Russia".

I believe that the media and the democrats really want to see America fail rather than EVER giving Trump credit for anything. None of their elected officials have put forth anything that the average citizen could say "hey, those are well thought out ideas that I could enthusiastically get behind". All we get is more identity politics, political correctness, calls for no borders and economic theories that have long failed.

As for the Mueller stuff, the average person is puzzled. They wonder why so much effort has been spent looking at one side of the issue while clear questionable behavior (pay for play at the Clinton foundation, 33k missing emails, hacked top secret emails, grants of immunity without anything given in return, exonerations written before interviewing witnesses, interviews that were not recorded or transcribed, etc). We have the countless emails from Strzock who displayed an enormous bias in favor of Clinton and against Trump leading the DOJ investigation. There is such a stench coming out of Meuller, the FBI, the DOJ and entreched elements of the state department that nothing emanating from them is clean or believable.

Trump has turned the establishment upside down. Unelected bureaucrats have attempted to overrule the will of the people. Elected people like Paul Ryan have managed to stall many things that Trump has wanted congress to act on. He could have assured that money for that wall was put into the budget. He was a leader who did not lead. The media grossly distorts the news on a daily basis. None of this serves the country's best interests. The swamp has been full for a long time. Sadly, it has long had a bipartisan population.

Ryan turned out to be a ..huge..disappointment and will not be missed.

Sure if you ignore the fact that it is illegal for someone to even try and directly seek political assistance from a foreign power during an election, like Don Jr. did.

Willful ignorance of that fact does not make it disappear. It just makes the person claiming it non-existent as looking like an idiot.

Actually there are a few smoking guns, but they have Democrat fingerprints all over them. And who would care about that?

It's more important to investigate a guy who was hired to be a liaison with foreign dignitaries for the President-Elect, to see if he's been interacting with foreign dignitaries.

Yes, time to turn the Justice Department on to investigating the efforts of the Washington Post and New York Times to collude in taking control of the politics of the United States away from the people and the political parties.

Heh, heh!

No gun, just smoke.

And that has been blown up our behinds by the Washington Post and New York Times for two years.

From what was coming out recently, it sounded more like the DNC paid the Russians for dirt on Trump during the election, and since a Dem president held the puppet strings of the top level of the FBI, it wasn't looked at too hard.

The liberal media didn't buy into anything. They are carrying out their marching orders, truth be damned. They are willing accomplices to the charade.

That must be why Trump's lawyer is going to prison, and why he implicated Trump.

You do know that he's going to prison for things like lying on a bank loan application long before Trump.

That must be why Trump keeps changing his story. "His crimes weren't criminal!"
